Sherman's expedition. --A gentleman who arrived in Mobile Wednesday night, says the Advertiser and Register, of the 25th, confirms in general the accounts from Mississippi and adds some interesting items: He reports, on the authority of Yankee prisoners at Enterprise, that Hurlburt's corps is retiring on Yazoo City and McPherson's on Natchez. The prisoners attribute the failure of the expedition to the fact that Grierson and Logan were unable to make a junction with Sherman at Meridian. We do not understand Logan's whereabouts, but Grierson came by Pontotoc. We are assured that Gen. Forrest whipped Grierson soundly at Tibbee, taking a considerable number of prisoners, and the latter retreated in the direction of North Alabama. The report of his being at Aberdeen is not fully substantiated, though there is a rumor that he has burned the town. The damage done to the Mobile and Ohio Railroad extends from Lauderdale to two miles below Quitman, a distance of forty-six
Capture of a spy. --A lad of about fifteen years of age was brought down last night from Shubuta, where he was arrested on Monday as a Yankee spy. He made his appearance at Enterprise, where he represented himself as having resided several months at Meridian, and been brought down to Enterprise by the enemy as a prisoner. He was riding a pony, and pretended that he had been employed to carry a mall from Enterprise to Shubuta, and the citizens entrusted him with several letters; but the famake his way to the enemy's outposts. He first gave his name as William Cunningham, but afterwards said it was Kidd. He appears to be from Missouri, and to be well acquainted about Vicksburg. He is said to be very shrewd, and of a fair education for his age. He wore a Yankee uniform at Enterprise, but swapped it off with a boy at Shubuta Another lad, of about the same age, was brought down at the same time, who came into Meridian and surrendered himself as a deserter.--Mobile Register.
