Matters in Mississippi.

Information was yesterday received, and is stated to be reliable, that Jackson, the capital of Mississippi, had fallen into the hands of the enemy. We were prepared for this when we learned that Raymond, which is in the same county and only fifteen miles distant, had been occupied by the Yankee forces. There was no confirmation of the reported fall of Jackson at the War Department late in the afternoon of yesterday, as we are informed.
