The Southwest.

The capture of Brashear City by General Taylor is one of the most important blows that has been struck in the Southwest since the war commenced. It is but ten miles above the city of New Orleans, and if it be hold, as it can be, it will be impossible to feed the city by means of the Mississippi. Everywhere in Louisiana our forces seem to be clearing the scoundrels out. We hope to see the Confederate flag waving over New Orleans before the summer is over.
