Destruction of the C. S. Steamer Nashville.

Savannah, Feb. 28.
--The steamer Nashville, in coming up the Ogreche last night, grounded on the sand bar above Fort McAlister, and was discovered this morning by the enemy's first. An iron clad opened fire across the march at the Nashville at thirty minutes past seven o'clock, and continued until ten, when an incendiary shell struck the Nashville, setting her on fire and she is now a total wreck. The fort fired upon the iron clad, hitting her twice. Other gunboats from the fleet shelled the fort, doing no damage.
