CAPTUdE OF FEDERAL GUNS.
Day before yesterday the Federals
on the Mississippi river, above Fort
Pillow, became anxious to furnish
their friends on this side of the river
with a 13-inch mortar and a large
field peice. To carry out their wish
es, and for other purposes best known
to theniselves, they built a large raft
and put the guns upon it, and moved
it with sixteen men. It was then
worked across the river, and while
floating down the eastern bank was
captured by our pickets. The raft,
the muortar and the gnn, with theam
munition, will doubtless do good ser
vice for the independence of the Con
federacy hereafter. [Memphis Ava

Corinth is a towin of about 2,000
