Operations of the enemy on the Southern coast.

A private dispatch has been received here, dated at Mobile on yesterday, which states that Picayune Butler is at Ship Island. The dispatch also states that the Federals have nominal possession of Beloxl, and it is believed will occupy all the towns on the coast in that region. They captured two cannon at Beloxi, but there were no small arms there for them to seize. It is stated that they landed there from 5,000 to 7,000 troops, and it is further rumored that they express the desire to push forward their forces to Jackson.
