Demopolis (Alabama, United States) (search for this): article 7
The situation in Mississippi. It is the general impression that Sherman will have something else to do before marching direct on Mobile. His expedition may first strike the Tombigbee at Demopolis and capture Selma and Montgomery; but the final point is the Gulf city. The Atlanta Appeal, speaking of the situation, says: The late movement of the enemy in Mississippi, whether regarded as a military enterprise, a strategic policy, or a coup de guerre, is certainly the most extraordinanded at Pascagoula as was expected. The cars on the Mobile and Ohio railroad do not go above Citronelli. Some of our exchanges think Mobile is the place Sherman intends to attack, others think he intends to move on Columbus, Macon and Demopolis.--From Demopils they say the Federal would advance on Tuscaloosa and Selma, with the purpose of co-operating with a column from Huntsville.

But a few days at most must develop the plans and purposes of the foe, when we shall be enabled to pass a more correct judgment upon his conduct. We find the following items in the Mississippi papers: The State archives of Mississippi are being removed to Selma, Ala. Nothing has been heard of a column of fifteen thousand, promised by the Yankees papers, to advance from Port Hudson; neither has there been any force landed at Pascagoula as was expected.

tever may be its present purposes, and, so far, from all we have yet learned, the enemy have met with but few obstacles to oppose his advance. His movements have been so rapid and eccentric that our Generals seemed to be baffled in their efforts at resistance, not knowing where to make a stand or what points to defend. One plausible supposition is, that if Mobile be not really the objective points of this movement, it is their purpose to push our army back into Eastern Mississippi and Alabama, thereby securing the uninterrupted possession of the railroad from New Orleans to Memphis, and redeeming the large belt of cotton-growing country lying between that road and the Mississippi river. This supposition would seem to receive strength from the fact that the Federal force is said to have divided at Morton, one column going North and the other South. By a light detour, these columns would again strike the railroad, the one at canton and the other at Hazlehurst or Brookhaven, whil
