The Confederate Forts at the mouth of the Mississippi.

--Major J. K. Duncan, who has been for some weeks in command of Forts Jackson and St. Phillip, represents those forts as being now in good condition, well mounted and well manned, and ready to stop the progress of all hostile vessels that may attempt to come up the Mississippi river.--The trees on the point below Fort Jackson have been cut down, by which the range of fire in that direction is extended, and other improvements made which have much enhanced the efficiency of the forts.
