From Tennessee.

--Passengers, who arrived in Lynchburg Friday from the West, report that Knoxville was occupied on Tuesday by 900 of the enemy, mounted — mostly East Tennesseeans. They commenced at once arresting prominent Secessionists, and it was reported that some had been hung. Three locomotives were captured.

Buckner had previously fallen back to London, on the Tennessee, and Gen. Jackson's forces are at Bristol. The Yankees are said to be in strong force at Jacksboro', 40 miles from Knoxville.
