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 untouched.

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.
