will reverberate through all Yankeedom, and close by one single thunderclap the campaign of the West. Meanwhile, Sterling Price is again on the war path, and the name of the old hero resounds like the trumpet of judgment in the ears of the cowardly oppressor. The flames of insurrection, yet emouldering in Missouri, will blaze out with redoubled fury at his approach, and an army of patriots will spring up from the soil under the martial tread of his patrict bands. By the destruction of Grant's army — and, unless he escapes by availing himself of the Yankee transports on the Mississippi, we anticipate nothing less from the decisive battle which will be forced upon him--Missouri, Arkansas, and Western Louisiana will be at once freed from the polluting presence of the hybrid and multicolored hordes by whom they are now overrun and Banks, the hero of many retreats, will have to repeat on a grand scale his strategic operations of last year, when he made such unprecedented fast time u

It urges its immediate progress (with contraband labor) not only as a military necessity during the war, but after the war, as an avenue for the "products of the West and Northwest" to "Southern markets," and also "a bond of future fraternity," and as a mediator "between brethren now estranged!" Bah! The following paragraph in the editoria column of the Journal stands like a fish out of water amidst the praises of the Government and bragging notices of Grant's reported victories: "The following paragraph, from the Providence Post, is making the circuit of the press: "The President, we are privately assured, has pledged himself within two weeks to return to the conservative policy, and prosecute the war upon war, and not upon 'nigger, ' principles. He must do so very soon, or the nation is lost." "To many persons, doubtless, as the Boston Courier says, the statement will seem incredible; but in the eye of reason nothing would ap
owing summary of its news: Unofficial dispatches from Grant's army, of the 26th, represent no material change in affairof the 30th] A dispatch from Washington, the 29th, says Grant telegraphed the 25th from near Vicksburg, to the War Departn is receiving reinforcemente near Jackson, and will attack Grant in the rear. It is reported that he said if Vicksburg coultch from Murfreesboro', the 28th, represents that since Sunday Grant had made a general assault on the rebel works at Vicksbuntil Johnston, with his army, raises the siege and engages Grant in battle. Johnston is rapidly receiving reinforcements frm all quarters at Canton, a central point on the railroad. Grant is being reinforced too, some down the Mississippi, which lg forces, complicated with the strength of the fortress and Grant's tactics in the approaching great battle. The rebels cannn was only prevented from dealing Rosecrans a heavy blow by Grant's landing at Port Gibson and attacking Vicksburg in the rea

His dead and wounded soldiers were left alone where they fell — the dead to rot, the wounded to suffer and die under the very nose of the enemy. How cruel and benante. The negroes have been brought here and put to work on the fortifications. The enemy is reported landing the forces of Gen. Curtis at Snyder's Bluff. Grant has moved his army well up north of the railroad, but few troops being below or in the vicinity of Grand Gulf, which is no longer his base of operations. We il rendered reckless by intoxication. The men also fully believe that Stoneman has taken Richmond, and that the taking of Vicksburg will terminate the war. In Grant's general orders, read to the troops previous to their first attack, this lying statement was embraced among others of a similar nature. The Memphis Bulletin,

It is stated that the people of Nashville are not disheartened, but look for the Confederates with anxious hearts. There are 23 Federal army hospitals in Nashville. One is capable of holding three thousand. It is said that Memphis is one vast hospital, and yet the sickly season has not begun. It is thought that large numbers of Rosecrans's troops have been sent to reinforce Grant in Mississippi. Northern papers state that affairs in Rosecrans's department are unchanged. Our army in Tennessee still continues in the same position, everything being unchanged and apparently unchangeable. Large numbers of refugees from Nashville and other points daily come within our lines, having been banished from home as Southern sympathizers, and in order that the vandals may the more perfectly become possessed of their property — being thrust out from homes of comfort
