Affairs at Corinth. The Mobile Advertiser, of May 28th, (the very day on which Halleck reports Corinth as evacuated,) has the following. The state of susper s and deep anxiety of the public mind at the present moment, to learn the condition of affairs at Corinth, leads us to give our speculations as to what will probably be the result of the course and policy of our Generals in command. From our knowledge of affairs at that point, we are led to believe that it was the policy o is prepared to make either a forward or retrograde movement, we shall not no surprised to heat at any moment either of a battle being fought, or of Corinth being evacuated. As for the defences of Corinth, we know they are very strong, and that Halleck with his host could never gain the rear of our battlements. But this is not the question. We are not calculating the chances of our defeat, but those of a decisive, telling victory over the enemy, which shall secure to us not only a masterly t

This latter point, however, may be matter of mere conjecture, or may be purposely misrepresented by the people — Why the evacuation took place, whither the enemy has gone, what is to be the next movement of Gen. Bulleck--on these points we have no further light. Dispatch from Gen Halleck. Washington, Jane 2 --The following dispatch has been received at the War Department, in reply to an inquiry from General Meigs: Corinth, May 31. M. C. Meigs, Quartermaster General: If Beauregard has been at Richmond, others have forged his signature, as I have received letters from him about exchange of prisoners nearly every day for the last fortnight. The evacuation of Corinth commenced on Wednesday and was completed on Thursday night, but in great haste as an immense amount of property was destroyed and abandoned. No troops have gone from here to Richmond, unless within the last two days. [Signed] H. W. Halleck, Major General.

It was hoped and expected that Halleck would attack us in our position; but this he was too sensible to do, for defeat would have been the certain result. Could we expect a different result, if we shoto position, where it would be as great madness for us to make the attack as it would be for him to attack us. Why, than, it may be asked, should we, and not Halleck, retire ? Because Halleck is provided with guns of long range and heavy calibre with which he can throw shot and shall into almost every part of our encampment evHalleck is provided with guns of long range and heavy calibre with which he can throw shot and shall into almost every part of our encampment every two or three tes, day and night as long as he pleases and because he has better water and more abundant supply than we have. The chief advantage the Federals will gain by the change will be the use of the entire line of the Memphis and Charleston railroad from Stevenson to Memphis. They are good workers and will soon rebu
tes from Mobile (May 31) as follows: Eighteen Federal war vessels appeared off the mouth of our harbor to-day, and shelled Fort Morgan for two hours. No damage done to the fort no lives lost on our side. The fleet was from New Orleans, and destined for All quiet here to-night. This greater part of Farragut's fleet have gone up the Mississippi river, and no serious attack will be made on Mobile until Vicksburg and Memphis have fallen. It is Butlor's desires to form a connection with Halleck's army, by the way of the Mississippi river and Memphis. Until this is accomplished he will not attack Mobile. There will be a land and water attack at the same time on Mobile. The Federals have landed large force at Pensacola. They are now cautiously feeling their way from. West Point towards the railroad connecting this city with Montgomery. A force has been sent out to meet them.
