From the Southwest.


Mobile, Aug. 11
--A special dispatch to the advertiser and Register from Knoxville, dated 9th inst., says that the enemy's loss in the battle at Tazewell is estimated at 36 killed, 120 wounded, and fifty prisoners. Our loss was eight killed and 30 wounded, which fell mostly upon Vaughan's 3d Tennessee regiment, who behaved heroically.

Gen. Forrest arrived here Wednesday. Two hundred of the 2d Kentucky regiment (Federal) left Rock Island, Tenn., and came over to our lines Desertions from the Federal army are continually taking place. The Federals have no confidence in the troops in Middle Tennessee. Bull Nelson's forces are at McMinnville. All the turnpikes between Murfreesboro' and McMinnville are strongly barricaded.


Jackson, Aug. 10.
--Twenty-seven Federal prisoners arrived here to-day from Baton Rouge. The Yankees are visiting the plantations on the Mississippi river, and plundering generally. Several of the thieves have been captured. Confederate guerrillas are very active and successful in Arkansas.
