Unfounded report — the burnt bridges in Tennessee.
Lynchburg, April 18.
--The Knoxville Register
has a dispatch, dated Bridgeport
, 16th inst., which states that neither Decatur
nor Decatur bridge had been taken.
There were only 3,000 Yankees at Huntsville
, the balance having fallen back.
The steamboat Lookout
was not taken, but is at Guntersville
A man just from Nashville
says that the enemy are removing their stores, sick and cannon over the river to Edgefield
Only two bridges were burnt on the Memphis and Charleston railroad.
Our pickets went to Bellefonte
, last night, and saw no enemy.
From the best information received, it is probable they have gone back to Huntsville
