ntinued. Persons who saw the operations through a glass say they are confident Grant captured a battery on Walnut hill. A furious cannonading is going on all around. Dispatches from Washington, of the 25th, say that an officer of Grant's, under date 9 P. M., Friday night, has written a letter confirming previous successes 1½ miles of the town, and the gunboats were shelling in front. It is believed Grant has nothing to fear from any concentration of forces in his rear. The destructer, May 20th, says: On the 15th he came over the Yazoo to co-operate with Grant. On the 18th firing was heard in rear of Vicksburg; by the "aid of glasses" sars up the Yazoo to open communication, and in three hours received letters from Grant informing me of their vast success. In the meantime I pushed on to Hainesis Blly, and then sent Com Wilkes up the Yazoo to Yazoo City to destroy everything. Grant has closely invested Vicksburg. The rebels have been completely beaten at all
Later from Vicksburg. Confirmation of the great slaughter of Yankees. Horrible stench of the dead Bodies--two gunboats sunk, &c. Mobile, May 28. --The special correspondent of the Advertiser and Register, under date of Jackson, 27th, says: Reports from below state that Banks has crossed his army at Bayou Sars. A Federal deserter confirms the reports of the carnage among the enemy at Vicksburg. --Grant sent in a flag to-day about the sick and wounded. Pemberton is burning tar and using other disinfectants to save his troops from the effects of the stench from the Yankee dead, who are rotting in front of our works. The slaughter of the Yankees has been far greater than in any other battle of the war. The Mississippian states that two gunboats have been sunk by our batteries at Vicksburg, and that the battle on Saturday was the most stubborn of all.
The very latest from the North. Petersburg, May 28th. --The Baltimore American, of the 26th, evening edition, has been received here. The latest from Vicksburg is contained in the following "official dispatch," dated Friday night, 22d inst., 9 P. M: An ordnance officer writes that our loss is not very heavy for the position we have gained. The rebels make a firm resistance. I think we shall have the place to morrow. We completely encircle the town, and to night our men have their colors planted on the enemy's works, and are lying on the extreme slope. The gun and mortar boats are in front of Vicksburg, working away. Our captures thus far are 6,000 prisoners and 74 pieces of artillery. Grant is in good spirits. If we take Vicksburg we shall accrue 15,000 prisoners, with Pemberton & Co. (Signed,) S C. Lyford.
such stringent orders in regard to our ladies — saying that they shall not pass from Louisville to Nashville, or to Murfreesboro', or within the limits of his department — this leads some to think he intends to commence a forward movement, for the purpose of "pulverizing" the South. As he stands now, he certainly is defeated, for his business is to advance. That's what he came for — to crush the rebellion. But for months he has stood behind his fortifications, while in his front, and all over the country in that section, the rebellion waxes more bitter still. The Bulletin adds: It is reported to us, by a gentleman just from the enemy's lines, that Rosecrans's force has been greatly diminished by the sending of troops to Grant, and that he has no idea of advancing. His excuse last winter was the roads. Surely the way is open now, and the roads are good. But he might meet with some obstacles worse than had roads and high water courses. We don't consider a fight immine
