From Mississippi — enemy retiring. Demopolis, Feb. 23. --The enemy's forces along the line of the Mobile and Ohio railroad are making a retrograde movement in the direction of the Mississippi river. Their mounted infantry in North Mississippi are also retiring, being closely pressed by Forrest and Lee.
he intentions of their Generals, and not unfrequently betray them before the time appointed for their execution. The New York Times --the great military paper of the Yankee nation — had no doubt that Sherman's movement was part of a grand military combination, which was to put the whole of Alabama in possession of their army, to turn the flank and rear of Johnston, and, in a word, to put an end to the rebellion. A screw — probably more than one screw — was evidently loose somewhere. Farragut did not come up to time, or Forrest and Lee were too active for the Yankee cavalry, or Gen.

With the extent of the preparations made to intercept his retrograde movement we are not at all familiar, but presume our authorities have hardly permitted so favorable an opportunity to pass without adequate arrangements for a proper chastisement of such Yankee insolence. Unless forced to do so, Sherman will not re-cross the Big Black in his retreat, but will halt at Jackson until his forces are sufficiently recruited to undertake another expedition to the rich counties in Eastern Mississippi. His retreat was evidently the result of the future of Grierson to unite with him, and from the slight information we have we are justified in hoping that Forrest and Lee have completely intercepted and will make proper disposition of this marauder.
