the Federal authorities have issued an order forbidding all communication through their lines for sixty days. The prohibition, it is reported, extends to the citizens of the adjacent country, contraband, cotton speculators, etc; in fact, it is general. The Jackson (Miss.) Appeal says: This is an entire change of policy, as they have always heretofore encouraged the bringing in of cotton by the planters and sought trade. We have also heard that for some days communication has been interdicted at Corinth, and all the advance parties south of that place withdrawn. From what information could be obtained by our friends outside the lists, it was judged they were making preparations for a move. Great changes are also reported to have been made at Jackson, Bolivar, LaGrange Grand Junction, etc, the principal portion of the force having been withdrawn. It is evident some new scheme is on foot, to keep which from the public these new regulations and precautions have been adopted.

The enemy in Northern Mississippi. Jackson, April 27. --The enemy have left the Kosciusko. None were at Louisville, but a few Yankees were at Lagrange. The Yankees have stopped repairing the railroad at Grand Junction and Corinth, but are guarding the lines closely. Jackson Tenn, is reported to have been evacuated by the enemy. They passed Raleigh in the direction of the New Orleans and Jackson Railroad, burned a bridge after passing Leaf river, and were reinforced near Corinth with cavalry.
From Jackson, Miss. --The Jackson correspondent of the Mobile Register writes under date of May 7th, as follows: General Pemberton is represented to express the fullest confidence in his ability to check Grant and capture the detachments which have been sent inland in order to turn the town of Vicksburg. The only thing which gives him any uneasiness is the raids on the railroads diverging into the State of Mississippi from Corinth and Grand Junction. Jackson may be visited at any time by a raid of cavalry from the neighborhood of Edwards' Depot, a few miles this side of Big Black river; but the bluebells hardly contemplate the permanent occupation of the place. Every precautionary measure has been taken to secure. Government property and private effects, and breastworks and rifle pits are being constructed wherever needed.--The people are determined to resist to the last, and with the military force now here there is no doubt but that we can successfully hold our ow

On Friday last, our guerrillas captured and burnt forty wagons, loaded with Federal stores, on the Memphis and Charleston Railroad. A detachment of Gen. Chalmers's command captured seventy- five more, which were saved, with their contents. The Yankees are fortifying Memphis. They are digging rifle pits and throwing up entrenchments five miles in rear of the city. A portion of Sherman's division has moved from Grand Junction to Moscow, 40 miles from Memphis, where entrenchments are being constructed. Negroes are being impressed throughout West Tennessee for the purpose. An attack is evidently expected by the enemy. Mobile, July 8.--Passengers by the flag of truce steamer, Natchez, from New Orleans, report that Baton Rouge has been taken by Gen. Van-Dorn, and that he captured 1,500 prisoners.
ons, commanded respectively by Generals Tuttle, Dodge, A. J. Smith and Ventch. Besides the 16th preparations for the campaign have been made in the 13th and 17th corps. A great cavalry expedition has also been arranged, under Gen W. L. Smith, General Grant's Chief of Cavalry, for a raid into the interior of Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia, and has, we learn, already moved upon Holly Springs, going down the line of the Mississippi Central Railroad. Troops from Cairo, Columbus, Moscow, Grand Junction, Memphis, and other points, have reached Vicksburg. They are expected to go eastward and southward, and form a junction with the column, and with a force setting out from Natchez, Jackson, the capital of Mississippi, will probably be abandoned by the enemy without a fight. Some formidable resistance might be made to our occupation of the city, as the works are said to have been considerably strengthened since the capture of Vicksburg, but the rebels will scarcely permit themselves to b
, with ten thousand mounted men, are in the western part of the State, and an equal force is collecting at Pound Gap. Morgan is understood to be preparing for a raid between those two points. This portends a series of invasions and combinations that will give great trouble. we have Memphis dates to the 1st inst. Persons arriving from the interior report detached bodies of rebels occupying positions in Tennessee in numbers. Chalmers rebel force, though not himself arrived, was at Grand junction on Sunday last, and were there on Tuesday morning in numbers stated to amount to twenty five hundred. It was also reported that Neely was at the same time at Bolivar with from fifteen hundred to two thousand men at other places. The confederate soldiers had made their appearance and some depredations were lately committed on the Hernando road. They lead to the belief in the presence of guerillas. A skirmish occurred during last week between a portion of Forrest's command and t
