From North Mississippi.

Meridian, June 11.
--Lee and Forrest have routed the Yankee column near Baldwin, in North Mississippi, capturing 200 wagons heavily loaded with stores of all descriptions. Forrest made a forced march to meet the enemy. The Yankees are more destructive than ever before in the State.

Marmaduke has erected another battery on the Mississippi river at Sunny Side, below Greenville, and has a number of Yankee boats hemmed up. He had destroyed three steamers up to the 7th inst.


[another Dispatch.]

Mobile, June 11th.
--A special dispatch to the Tribune, dated Baldwin, June 11th, says that Forrest made a forced march and threw his command between the Yankee advance and Baldwin. He held them, by severe and gallant fighting, for five hours, when Buford struck them on the flank, driving them four miles. An official note says the enemy were routed, and that we captured over 200 wagons loaded with stores, and many prisoners.

The destruction of property on the Yankee line of advance is unparalleled. The negroes are very vindictive.
