The city of Vicksburg. When Saragossa made her last, unrivaled defence against the hosts of Napoleon, the Cortez in gratitude for her heroism and her sufferings, decreed that she should henceforth be styled. In all public documents, "the very heroic city of Saragossa;" and thus she is styled to this day. If it were the custom of this country to bestow similar takens of approbation, we should propose to Congress to append some such compliment to the corporate style of Vicksburg. SaragosSaragossa herself scarcely deserved it better. As soon as we saw the answer of the Mayor of Vicksburg to the summons of the Yankee commander, we thought to use Hamlet's expression, "Marry, this is lavishing malice; it means mischief." We were not at ait was not ready to undergo. To it was entrusted the keys of the Mississippi, and she proved herself worthy to wear them.--Saragossa proved the turning point in Napoleon's career; Vicksburg may prove the turning point in the fortunes of this war.
