Mobile, Dec. 17
   The Tribune learns from officers on the Mobile & Ohio Rail Road that the train between Tupelo and Okolona was fired into on Monday evening by the Abolitionists -- "Nobody hurt," and the train proceeded on to Okolona, where the latter place was immediately evacuated and everything removed to Egypt. Saltillo was taken on Monday morning and Pontotoc, below there, at eleven o'clock, by 2,500 Abolitionists, who are making a raid through that country.
