An official dispatch was yesterday received at the War Department from Mobile, stating that the Yankees had reached Quitman, Miss., on the Mobile and Ohio railroad, at which point they destroyed some of the trestle work of the road.
The force that accomplished this is presumed, of course, to be a detachment of Sherman's army.
