THE EVACUATION OP COLUMBUS. rHK REPORT CONFIRMED FROM MEMPHIS?THE REBEL TROOPS FROM THAT PLACE TO JOIN THOSE FROM NEW MADRID AND FORT PlLLOW?A STAND TO BE MADE AT MEMPHIS?THE FOUCE TO DM FI FT if THOUSAND STROM). [From mo Memphis Appeal, Feb. 19.] General i k issued orde.s yesterday that the track of the Mumph.s and Ohio Railroad should be torn up and the bridgesb urned, wh.cii order was obeyed, and by this time the wuik of uestr.iCliou is complete on a groat part of the road. A rumor prevails on tha streets this afternoon that Polk was , reuaring to era mate Columbus to m rrow, reap ve all theguus, Ac., and demolish the foriiUcatious. TUo forces at New Madrid and Fort Pillow, together with the Co umbus troops, are to repair at once to Memph s and make a stand?making an army of about 60,000 I men We have the rumor in such form as to give credit that au oraor has been issued by General Folk for the evac istion of Columbus, which movement is understood to be executed under the direction of Peaurega' I. It is staled that preparations are being made tor our army to fall back to Island No. 10, or Fort Pillow?a vary nocea.-ary move, it seems to us, in view of the capture of Fort DoneMon and the surrender o Nashville. As General Folk made s cull, two or throe days si .ee, upon the planters along the Mississippi r.var toi a thousand negroes for the purjiose of completing and strengthening the fortifications at Island No. 10, w i wer- rot unprepared for this intelligence. Indeed, it h d long since been perfectly palpable to us that Columbus must eventually be evacuated, and our lines drawn in so soon as the central S lumu of our army under t.ensraiJ hnst a at Howling Green gave way, or Forts Henry and iunalson fell into the enemy's bands. The capture of theee positions was tantamount to a successful flanking of both Rowling Green ul Columbus, and hence it rwjuirod no ei'wrionced military eye to foretell somo of its moie imme ..ate consequences. These reasons strengthen our oonvlctlon of the aathenticity of the runv-r. Is.and No. 10 is s strong position, not far from Hickman, Kentucky,about forty-five miles below Cob mbus aud ne It udrod and fifteen above Fort Flllow and oue h us >. cd and eighty five above Memphis.

THE DESTRUCTION OF JOHN BELL'S IRON WORKS. The Fort Donelson correspondent of the Chicngo Pott, under date of February 17. gives the following account of the destruction of the Tennessee iron works by the gunboat St Louis:? Six miles below Dover, the St. Louis came in sight of the Tennessee ironworks, an extensive establishment, owned by John Bell, Mr. Lewis and Mr. Wood. Not a person was in eight, and to ascertain if anybody was at home, a shell was thrown at a high elevation, and burst directly over the establishment, too high to do any damage. It had the desire i effect?the workmen streamed out of their hive like a swarm sf bees. It having been rejwrted that the mill had beon engaged extensive ly in the manufacture of iron plates for rebel gunboats, officer Jelinson, of the St. Louis, was sont ashore to find the proprietors and inquire about it. He fouDd Mr. Lewie, who at once presented himself as the proprietor, and in response to the officer's inquiries, stated that the mill had been occupied lately in the manufacture of it good deal of iron of various pitterns; but it had beou done for contractors and other individuals, and not di rectly for the rebel "government." Mr. Lewis tvas asked if he did not know from the pat tern of the iron that it was for war purposes. He said that a good deal of it had beea square iron, whteh he supposed was for wagon axles, and a ooneiderablo part had been heavy plates, which might be for gunboats. Ho attempted no concealment whatever, and an exaralt.aliou of ha books corroborated his statements, and also showed orders for a large qi entity of iron of eitnilar descriptions, m-t yet ma ulact'ired.

He informed Mr. Lewis tbst this would bo necessary, and also that he must require him to go on board as a pris oner. An attempt was first mado to disable the ina cbinery of the eatabiiahment, the desire being not to ut terly destroy the property if it could be avoided. But the machinery was so heavy that no moans could bo found of contlning powder sufficient to blow it up. It was, therefore, set on fire and consumed. When Mr. Lewis beheld his property in dames, he expressed the hope that his private reeidenre would be x|>ared.

The Norfolk Day Buck says:?We understand that Commanders Lee and Whittle have been promoted to the rank of captains?captains "for the war." From this wo gather that it is the iuteutioh of our government to establish something of a provisional navy, and under thatImpression taks leave to protest in the strongest terms against any poiicy which has a tendency to dwarf the growth and developeuieut of this important arm of our defeuce. It is a vast mistake?a most serious error?to suppoee that either now or hereafter we can dispense with a large aaval establishment. REFUGEES FROM NORTH CAROLINA. The Petersburg Kxy rtn says:?Refugees from North Carolina, and evan from Norfolk, have been arriving in this city for several days past in considerable numbers. On Sunday some six or eight wagons, filled with negroes and their effects, belonging to oiMs.-ns of Edentr>n,who have been compelled to fiee for safety from that place, reached Blandford. We presume there must have been at least fifty negroes with these wagons. We have also seen and conversed with several rofugoos from Elizaboth City and other points on the coast of North Carolina.

While my best efforts will bo given to tho i>erformanco of my duties, yet, wih a humble sense of my own deQuiencies, 1 realize that, for success ns your presiding ulltcer, 1 must look to your friendly com sol aud to your brotherly aid. As I am about to undertake those duties, the thought comes vividly to my mind that tho last two of my predcc ssors hove, within the past year, while filling this office, both departed from our midst to the immediate presence of the Culveraal Father. They are gone; (heir "grip of brotherhood" ia loosened from us l'oie.er; but thoy have left, to guide and to eucourage ua, the noble example of their raithiul service and their lorveut patriotism.

IS.] The long expected batt'e between Joe Gum, or Northampton, and William Hyall, or Birmtntrham, for ?100 eide, took piece yesterday, in the metropolitan district. M a well Known locality, ana, rr -m me iaci 01 me same men having contested together lor t:60 a aide in September last, the issue 01 (ho present mill was looked forwaid to with great interest. The present match arose from Rya'l having much the best or the A htieg in the previous contest, which made tho friends of lh? Bic-'un sanguine res|>ecti: g a second encounter, when they rightly believed he would have gained more cxpe ionce. Both men went into good work soon after h match was in lair pro gr- as The contest did not take a< y ver y great hold on the minds of the metropolitan funcy, although specula li ii was rife in lilrmi: gham and ncigbiioihuod. B it on Goes leaving a Aver as a deposit to rnuke a match with Jem Muce, to Oght for ?200 a side and ih> championship, a fresh imp -tus was g ven to the languid iuterest that was previously evinced In the match, and a number or the upper ten thousand were on the qui via* to ascertain the whereabouts, ko , which wi< llxed at a very early hour. As both men have be n bofore the public so recently, a short account or their battles will sutllco. Joe Goes and his performances uro well known, and thoroughly appreciated by the fancy located in the mid land district; but although always looked upon as a pro mi.-ing and rising pugilist, it was not until hi* defeat of William Ryall (Bob Brsttle'a Flg-'Un), ou the 25th of laat September, that he established for himself a real reputation amongst the mewoixdiuin followers of the the prize ring, who rallied round him in great force when a second match was made with his previous formidable antagonist, at Bob Bret tie's, November 2, 1861. Articles were drawn up the following week, to Aght tor one hundrod pounds a side, on February 11, in the home (Lon d n) circuit. The great resolution anil gameness dia played by Joe Goss in the former contest must be fresh in tho memory of our readers, more especially from th > fact of the tenth round having been one Of almost unexampled severity as regards the counters, &c.,as well sa duration, it having lasted no less than fifty-seven minutes. Up to this round Goes apparently had much the worst of the battle, but a change took place from that time, as the battle was fought very evenly until the twenty-fourth round, in which Goss was thrown by the Novice, who fell over hint with his head bent iu to his chest, so that si first it was supp.sed his (Ryall s) nock was dislocated. From this time Gas forced (be Agbtiug In a manner thst tooc the spectators to a man by surprise, snd, improving in strength, while Ryall was falling weaker, he gallantly won the battle, aiftsr fighting thirty-seven rounds, which occupied two hours snd fifty minutes. Jos Goss was boru November 26, 1539, at Northampton (being consequently in his thenty-third year), and sUmds five foet eight and a half inches, wui on tho urosent oocvaioa. welshed ten stone nine pounds.

This success found him freinds, who becked him against Rixou, of great provincial reputation; but after a got d battle, which I as tod throe hourj two minutes, the police interfered. B'-t so much was 1 the affair in iho present hero's favor, that Rixon gave him ?7 to draw tho money. We nest hear of his meet ingjack Rooko, of Birmingham, for ?35 a side, in the sutno riug that Tom Sayers and Boh Brettle fought, on September 20,1859. Again was Goss victorious, in one hour aud forty minutes, during which time sixty-tour rounds were fought.
