From Vicksburg.

Mobile, Feb. 27.
--A correspondent of the Memphis Appeal, writing from Vicksburg 23d, says: ‘"An enormous fleet appeared this morning, larger than has been witnessed yet from this point. Everything looks as if preparations were almost ready for the enemy to commence a forward movement. The monster force before the city cannot long remain in idleness. "’

Persons well acquainted with the country bordering on Yazoo Pass and Cold Water, say if the enemy succeed in getting their gunboats in the Cold Water they will never get out; that an army of 1,000 men could hold at bay and destroy an invading force of 50,000 in that country.
