The Southwest. The news from the Southwest, received by mail yesterday, represents General Joe Johnston as crossing the Big Black in force, leaving Breckinridge at Jackson. The garrison at Vicksburg is said to be in fine spirits and confident of success. On the other hand, we have good grounds for believing that Grant has been reinforced from Memphis, probably by detachments from Rosecrans's army. Rosecrans himself appears to be falling back, which renders this supposition still more probable. We presume that General Bragg will follow him closely, should he be moving, as reported, towards Nashville. An officer lately from Port Hudson reports our loss in the engagement there at six hundred. The negroes in the Yankee army were put in front, and they broke at the first fire. As many of them were killed by the Yankees as by the Confederates. The whereabouts of Kirby Smith is still in doubt, some saying that he crossed at Port Hudson with eighteen thousand men, whilst

The Liverpool Post gives prominence to the following on the receipt of the Australasian's news: Vicksburg has fallen. The Mississippi is open from its mouth to its source. The Federal cause has triumphed. There can now be no doubt that General Grant has seized the key of peace that is hung up in the fortress at Vicksburg. Now is the time for mediation. --Instead of indulging in the idea of sympathy or in vain hopes of the war continuing, every one who wishes well to England and to the world at large should promptly unite in an appeal to Lord Palmerston, requesting him not to lose a moment in proposing terms not injurious to the South, yet acceptable to the North. This important news having only arrived when we were going to press,
hes from Vicksburg. The dispatches from Gen. Pemberton to Gen. Johnston, captured on Thursday, read, "Our forage is all gone. The men are on quarter rations. The ammunition is nearly exhausted. We can hold out ten days." On Friday General Grant ordered every gun in position to throw shells into Vicksburg. In one hour thirty-six hundred were safely lodged in the city, but with what effect is not known. Cairo, June 7.--A steamer from the Yazoo, Wednesday, has arrived. The re line on Wednesday. Our lines have been drawn in so that in many places the armies are within speaking distance. Chickasaw Bayou, Monday, June 1, via Cairo, 5.--I have no important change to report of matters in the rear of Vicksburg. Grant is well up to the enemy's works. Logan has planted a battery of heavy siege guns within 100 yards of the rebel forts, and constructed a covered pathway from behind a high hill, through which his gunners can pass to and fro with little danger. M

The opinion of Grant, however, seems to differ from that of the correspondent, and he stcording to the correspondent, Gens. Laubman is on the extreme left, Grant in the centre, McPherson on his right, and Sherman on the extreme r to discover that there was meat in that shell, and sent him to General Grant. To him he delivered the message he was instructed to deliver --one meal a day. Come to my aid with an army of 30,000 men. Attack Grant in his rear.
