Grant sent a flag of truce to Columbus yesterday, asking for an exehaage of prisoners, and Gen. Polk refused, owing to the insulting character of the proposition.

The gunboats of the enemy were l,:lly damaged by our batteries.- Gen. i'uik, I'lilow and Cheathaxm participated in the fight. Another attack is anticipated on the Kentucky side of the river.

Richmond, Nov. 9.-Reliahbie in telligence is received here that sev eral bridges on the railroad from Atlanta to Chattanooga, also on the railroad through East Tennessee have been burned, and it was evidently a prconucerted movenment, as the tele graph wires on these routes were re moved at several points, to prevent intelligence of the fiact reaching the different stations.

The undersigned knowing this from experience, has invented a press of this sort (similar to Hoe & Co.'s) and offers it to the craft as the cheapest in the market. Instead of a solid cast-iron cylinder, it is made of sheet iron and tilled, being a decided im proveinent, as it gives elasticity to to the cylinder.
