Movements near Corinth, Mississippi

Text: The above cut shows the importance of the movement announced in the dispatch we publish below from Cairo. Grand Junction, occupied by three brigades of Gen. Buell, is half way between Memphis and Corinth. Gen. Mitchell, as we know, is in possession of this road to the East, and the detachment from Gen. Pope's army has got in the rear of the Rebls between Corinth and Danville. Beauregard seems thus to be completely surrounded.
