The enemy's movements in the Southwest.

There is a report from Memphis that in addition to contracting their lines, and placing an additional guard around the city, the Federal authorities have issued an order forbidding all communication through their lines for sixty days. The prohibition, it is reported, extends to the citizens of the adjacent country, contraband, cotton speculators, etc; in fact, it is general. The Jackson (Miss.) Appeal says:

‘ This is an entire change of policy, as they have always heretofore encouraged the bringing in of cotton by the planters and sought trade. We have also heard that for some days communication has been interdicted at Corinth, and all the advance parties south of that place withdrawn. From what information could be obtained by our friends outside the lists, it was judged they were making preparations for a move. Great changes are also reported to have been made at Jackson, Bolivar, LaGrange Grand Junction, etc, the principal portion of the force having been withdrawn. It is evident some new scheme is on foot, to keep which from the public these new regulations and precautions have been adopted.
