Point Coupee Parish, by order of the Yankee commander, has been desolated. The houses, crops, and everything burnt, and the people have to beg provisions from the enemy, or starve. One lady, Mrs. Catlett, has been killed by the enemy. The Yankees are demoralized and deserting in large numbers, selling their horses and equipments for whatever they can get. Three thousand troops have come up from New Orleans to reinforce the enemy, who are constantly dreading an attack.

It is reported that the enemy were ambuscaded, and badly cut up and scattered. Gen Forrest is pursuing them beyond Ripley. The heavy rains may retard the enemy's retreat. Forrest is on all sides of him.
From Lynchburg. Lynchburg, June 13. --Rumors of the movements of the enemy are plentiful, but nothing definite is known outside of official circles. It is reported that the force that occupied Lexington is moving in the direction of Buford's, on the Virginia and Tennessee railroad, thirty nine miles west of this city. The force in Amherst is reported to be moving towards Buffalo Springs, twenty-six miles from here. This force is about two thousand strong, under the command of Gen Stahl, and is all cavalry. They subsist off the country, having no supplies with them. They have two pieces of artillery. Only eight of them visited the Orange railroad, burnt the depot at Arrington, tore up two hundred yards of the track, removed several cattle guards, and destroyed the telegraph. The damage can be repaired in three or four hours. The people here are calm and resolute, and will defend the city at all hazards.

Grant--an important movement in progress — an official Dispatch from Secretary Stanton. We find the following dispatch from Secretary Stanton in the Tribune, which gives the news in brief from all quarters. The important movement referred to has developed itself in front of Petersburg: War Department, Washington, June 13-12 midnight. To Major General Dix: We have dispatches from the Army of the Potomac as late as 8 o'clock this morning. The movement was at that hour in successful progress. No reports to-day from Gen. Sherman. The following dispatch from General Burbridge, commanding in Kentucky, has just reached here: "I attacked Morgan at Cynthiana at daylight yesterday morning. "After an hour's hard fighting, I completely routed him, killing three hundred, wounding nearly as many, a
ee years more. I would, however, safely make the prediction that Grant, with Hancock and Meade, is to night where he will never be dislodged until Richmond is taken. If I shall discover that Grant's noble officers and men need assistance to put this thing through, will you give it to me? [Yes, all answered] Well, then, I intend to call on you, and I want you to stand by me and the army. Grant's crossing to the Southside. A letter dated "Headquarters of the Army of the Potomac," June 13th, P. M., gives the following account of the preparations for Grant's crossing to the Southside: The Army of the Potomac took up its line of march for the Chickahominy at 3 P. M., Sunday The 5th corps took the advance on the middle road by way of Providence Court-House. The 2d corps took the Western road, while the 9th and 6th corps took the road leading to Jones' Bridge. The 18th embarked on transports at the White House. The advance called for the night near the Chickahominy, which

D. Lee, gave me reason to hope that a competent force could be sent from Mississippi and Alabama to prevent the use of the railroad by the United States army. I therefore suggested it to the President directly, on the 13th of June and 16th of July, and through General Bragg on the 30th, 12th, 13th, and 26th of June; and also to Lieutenant-General Lee on the 10th of May, and 3d, 11th and of June.
