Evacuation of Knoxville.

--The town of Knoxville, Tenn., was evacuated by our troops on Monday, and on Tuesday was occupied by the Yankee forces under Burnside. The Yankees came in so soon after the evacuation that they captured two or three trains of cars which had been left there by our troops.

We hear nothing of the locality to which Gen. Buckner's command retreated. It is supposed that the burning of a bridge on the East Tennessee and Virginia Railroad prevented the removal of the cars noticed above as being captured. This feat was doubtless performed by the tories with which East Tennessee abounds.
