Sherman's expedition.

Meridian, March 6.
--Sherman was reported at Canton on Wednesday last. Our cavalry were fighting him on all sides. A heavy cannonading was heard in the direction of Canton all day on Wednesday. --Sherman, in going through the country, issued orders that his men must rob the people of subsistence, which was effectually done. The Yankees took a large number of negroes. This section of country is perfectly impoverished wherever the enemy has been. The telegraph is working as far west as Marston, and is being repaired to Farmer Station, the western terminus.
