   From the same intelligent and reliable source we also learn that the force which entered Huntsville, is that of Gen. Mitchell, and that it does not exceed eight thousand, all told; and that it was only a marauding expedition -- not an imposing invading force. They advanced to Stevenson, and designed to destroy the bridge on the Memphis & Charleston Railroad which crosses the Tennessee. But the people of Stevenson deceived them, directing them to the bridge over Willis Valley creek on the line of the Willis Valley Railroad, a deception easily practiced on account of its trestlework and length of the bridge.
