y evacuation, and had his pickets up within easy range of the enemy's new line of defences, so that by eight A. M. of May nineteenth, we had compassed the enemy to the north of Vicksburgh, our right resting on the Mississippi River, with a plain view and delivered it over with its guns, magazine (filled) and material to the gunboat De Kalb, at the time (four P. M., May nineteenth) lying two miles below in Yazoo River. Also on that day communinication was opened with our fleet at Young's Point aight. In the mean time the confederate lines were strengthened, the army recruited, and confidence restored. Tuesday, May nineteenth, every thing opened bright and cheerfully; full and universal confidence was now entertained by the whole army trmished with them until dark. During the night we moved our position and fell back to the next, second line of works. May 19.--This morning the fight commenced with vigor, heavy fighting all day. The enemy attempted to charge, but were repulsed w

hat the President, Vice-Presidents, and Secretary of this meeting be requested to transmit a copy of these resolutions to his Excellency the President of the United States, with the assurance of this meeting of their hearty and earnest desire to support the Government in every constitutional and lawful measure to suppress the existing rebellion. President Lincoln's reply. Executive mansion, Washington, June 12, 1863. Hon. Erastus Corning and others: gentlemen: Your letter of May nineteenth, inclosing the resolutions of a public meeting held at Albany, New-York, on the sixteenth of the same month, was received several days ago. The resolutions, as I understand them, are resolvable into two propositions--first, the expression of a purpose to sustain the cause of the Union, to secure peace through victory, and to support the Administration in every constitutional and lawful measure to suppress the rebellion; and secondly, a declaration of censure upon the Administration fo

It will be remembered that General Pemberton expected that Edwards's Depot would be the battle-field before I reached Jackson, (see his despatch of the twelfth, already quoted,) and that his army, before he received any orders from me, was seven or eight miles east of the Big Black, near Edwards's Depot.
