--The army correspondent of the Savannah Republican
telegraphs from Corinth
that ‘" the towns of Huntsville
and Decatur, in Alabama
, have been occupied by the enemy.
This was expected by our Generals
, and should cause no alarm.
When the Federal
came to the bridge at Decatur
the draw was raised by the officer in command, to prevent them crossing; where upon the enemy threatened to shell the town if it was not let down.
The citizens, desirous of avoiding the fire of the enemy, prevailed on the official to put it down. "’
