The movements of the enemy in the South.

The expedition under the Yankee General Sherman, which was evidently designed for a land demonstration against Mobile, seemed to have come to a stand-still in the vicinity of Meridian, Miss. This point is at the junction of the Southern Mississippi and Mobile and Ohio Railroads, and is one hundred and thirty-four miles above Mobile.

Official information was yesterday received at the War Department that since their arrival at Meridian no demonstration has been made by the enemy. Since our last report they have made no further assault on Grant's Pass, below Mobile.

A dispatch received at the War Department states that the enemy had landed heavy force and were marching against Gen. Finnegan, who lately repulsed them at Lake City, Fla.
