Yankee Raid in Mississippi Jackson, May 11. --One thousand of Grant's cavalry entered and burned Crystal Springs, on the New Orleans Railroad, to-day at 12 o'clock. [Second Dispatch.] Jackson, May 11. --The enemy are fortifying at Rocky Springs and Western Springs.--Gen. Osterhaus is at Cayasa with 150 cavalry and six or seven regiments of infantry.--The enemy are reinforcing at Willow Springs and Rocky Springs from the river. Grant will probably advance East, and not direct to Vicksburg.
Willow Springe, Rocky Springs, and Cayuga, be at intervals of seven miles apart, in a straight line parallel with Big Black, from which they are about four miles distant, while Bayon Pierre runs in their rear at a considerable less distance. Willow Springs is about ten miles from Grand Gulf, and Cayuga is about thirty-two miles west-south-west from Jackson, and twelve miles from the Southern Railroad at Edwards's depot and Big Black bridge. It will thus be seen that Grant occupies a position v bridge. It will thus be seen that Grant occupies a position very favorable to resisting an attack on his right, as forming front in that direction his flanks would rest upon the two streams named, and if worsted he can retrial upon G and Gulf. At the same time, it is a very pretty line to cut in two, and if, while the fresh troops now arriving should attack his right. while the Vicksburg garrison threw themselves between. Willow Springs and Grand Gulf. Grand would be in an awkward place.
