Huntsville and Decatur

--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. "’
