From Vicksburg.

--The correspondent of the Mobile Advertiser, writing from Vicksburg, says:

‘ If Vicksburg should ever be so unfortunate, as to fall into the hands of the enemy, it will be accomplished by the unthing exertions of some of our own Southern people, rather than by the assault of the enemy. The unquenchable thirst for speculation has already brought a degree of privation and destitution upon this place that would otherwise have remained strangers and at a great distance.-- spirit of speculation has taken hold of almost everybody and every interest is sacrificed to Mammo. To such an extent has this spirit reached, that it now pervades every pervades of people and every branch of business and there families whose male stays are in the army suffer severely from it.
