--The Yankees destroyed Austin, Miss., including the records of the Court of Tunica county, and every house in the town except one, on Sunday, the 24th May. The force which accomplished this achievement of vandalism was Elliott's marine fleet.
A little fight took place on Beaver Dam Lake, about seven miles from town.
