Federal Movements
   We learn from the Memphis Avalanche that the Federals took possession of that portion of the Mobile & Ohio railroad near Bethel Station. They had nothing to oppose them. They burnt two bridges and tore up a portion of the track. All the Mobile & Ohio railroad north of Corinth has been abandoned, the officers having previously moved away their cars, etc. It is supposed that they are trying to get in the rear of our forces along the line of that road.
