organize an army in the face of the enemy, to supply it with the munitions of war, and to encounter other unheard of difficulties. He has surmounted them all, and now that the water is down we may expect to hear from him in a way that shall silence his detractors forever. The advantage which will accrue to our cause from the repulse of Grant and the salvation of Vicksburg, are prodigious. We shall have made the enemy fail in the operations of a whole campaign. We shall have preserved a point which they consider of more importance than any other. We shall have secured the trans Mississippi States. We shall be in a condition to roll back the war upon the Yankee States, in co-operation with Lee's army on the Potomac. These are a few, and but a few, of the least important results. Perhaps the whole Northwest, finding themselves as far off from securing the navigation of the Mississippi as ever, may become tired of the war, and either force a peace or secede from the Yankees.
Our cavalry. It is gratifying in the extreme to learn, from the dispatches of Gen. Lee to the President, alluded to in another column, that our cavalry under Gen. Stuart still maintains its ancient reputation. For several days, so reads the report, they have met the enemy daily, and on all occasions have been victorious. This is so much the more gratifying than we had been led to believe from the reports of passengers on the cars, that the sceptre was departing from us. There certainly would be nothing more mortifying to the Southern man than to see that arm of the service in which his countrymen have always been supposed to excel, represented by a race of combatants who were not able even to cope with the Yankees. Nevertheless that the Yankees are straining every nerve to make discipline supply the place for natural aptitude for the cavalry service is too clear to admit of dispute. The time has been, and that not very long ago, when they would not have dared to project a
From the Southwest. For the past few days public attention has been withdrawn in a measure from their rations around Vicksburg by the brilliant achievements of our army under Gen. Lee on the Northern border of Virginia and in Pennsylvania and Maryland. It is gratifying to know, however, that our successes on the Mississippi rival those of our arms on the Potomac. A dispatch was yesterday received by President Davis from Gen. Johnston stating that Gen. Kirby Smith, with his corps, had taken possession of Milliken's Bend, above Vicksburg, cutting off the supplies and communication of the enemy. This is, in effect, raising the siege of Vicksburg, and in a few days we may expect the most cheerful tidings from that important and beleaguered point.
renewed, and at first the enemy were driven back, with the loss of some hundred prisoners, belonging to a Rhode Island cavalry regiment. In the afternoon the enemy was heavily reinforced, and throughout the remainder of the day the fighting is represented to have been quite severe, and altogether indecisive. On Friday morning heavy fighting was again commenced, and report states that the enemy opened upon our columns with artillery, inflicting considerable damage upon the brigade of Gen. W. H. F. Lee and another brigade. This, however, is mere rumor, and not wholly entitled to credit. This much we are confident of — that up to noon of Thursday we had a decided advantage in the series of fights that had taken place; and we have a firm faith in the gallantry and ability of our cavalry to contend successfully with the forces under Stoneman. We understand that a dispatch was yesterday afternoon received at the War Department from Gen. R. E. Lee, stating that the forces under Gen
