--A rumor comes by the way of Mobile that Memphis has been evacuated since our army left Corinth; that all the cotton, and so much of sugar, molasses and tobacco as was not needed by the inhabitant, were burnt by the authorities, and all the public stores removed. The rumor also includes the evacuation of Fort Pillow. We have no positive information on the subject.
