The bridge Burners — the Federal loss at Fort Royal--Gen. Lee, &c. Augusta, Nov. 12. --The Savannah Republican, of this morning, states that it has been informed by a gentleman from the interior that the bridges over Chickamoga Creek were burned by discharged hands, and not by the Unionists. A negro who escaped from Hilton Head, says that he heard some of the Federal officers say that their loss at the battle of Port Royal was fifty killed. The Republican publishes an extract of a letter dated at St. Simons Island on the 9th inst., which says that one Federal vessel passed on the day previous, and three more on that day bound South.

If necessary we would establish a line of pickets around the town to keep them in. We are very sure no Georgian will need such compulsion to duty. Savannah Alive. The Savannah Republican, of the 9th, says: Our city was in a state of intense excitement throughout the whole of yesterday. The news of the capture of the Walker battery, on Hilton Head, and the arrival of our retreating troops, and among them many of the wounded, aroused the intensest feeling. Everybody was in the street, and large crowds collected around the news and telegraphic offices throughout the day and until late at night.--Families commenced packing up, and large numbers of females and children were sent from the city by the night train to the up-country.
