Operations in the Southwest. Mobile, Dec. 8. --A special to the Advertiser, dated Waterford, Dec. 7, says that Gen. Stephens Lee has just concluded a splendid raid on the Memphis and Charleston railroad. He drove the enemy into Pocahontas on the 2d, and crossed the forest safely to his district, on the 4th. Gen. Chalmer's command drove the enemy in a huddle on the bridge over Wolf river, slaughtering about 300 of them. The river was filled with dead horses and Yankees. We captured about 400 prisoners. The road was torn up at Saulsbury and Graham's creek, and the bridge over Cypress creek, near Chewalls, destroyed. Our loss was 25 killed and 75 wounded, including Captain Gaines McCullock, of the staff, and Lt. Harris, of the 1st Mississippi Partisans.
