Mobile., Sept. 20.
--A special dispatch to the Advertiser and Register, dated Knoxville, the 19th instant, says. The enemy evacuated Cumberland Gap Wednesday night, blowing up their magazine, destroying all their property, and blasting rocks to block the roads. They retreated by the Harland road towards Kentucky, our forces pursuing them at Cumberland Ford and Baptist Gap. Andy Johnson family, who were at Greenville, East Tennessee within our lines have been permitted by order of the Secretary of War to return to the enemy.
