The Daily Dispatch: July 9, 1863., [Electronic resource], Gen. Lee's army — later from the North. (search)
Gen. Lee's army — later from the North. The only intelligence we have heard of reaching the city was from an officer of the Signal Corps stationed on the lower James, who had been fortunate enough to have an opportunity of reading Northern papers of the 6th. This officer telegraphs to the War. Department that there journals state that not one word had been heard from Gen. Meade's army since the 4th, and that they contain nothing whatever with reference to the great battles which have taken place at Gettysburg. The same officer alluded to telegraphs that the papers of the 6th speak despondingly of the situation of Gen. Banks in Louisiana.--From Vicksburg they had no later intelligence than that contained in their issues of the 4th. Among the rumors which got loose yesterday day was one to the effect that Vice President Stephens had been informed at Fortress Monroe that Lee's army was in full retreat.
per to go aboard. The officers were very much depressed, and spoke very little to the Confederates in charge of the prisoners. The only fact they stated was that Sickles had died from his wound, and that up to Saturday night Meade, the Commander in Chief of the Army of the Potomac, had not been wounded.--Sickles's right leg was amputated below the knee, but the operation was so unskillfully performed that a second amputation became necessary. During the latter operation he died. The Herald, of Saturday last, promised an extra Sunday morning, in which it expected to announce the capture of Port Hudson by Banks; the fall of Vicksburg; the Bagging of Bragg's army by Rosecrans, and the utter rout of Lee's ragged rebels by the invincible veterans of Meade. It is very likely that the extra was not issued. One of our exchanged Confederate prisoners says he heard a Federal tell a friend at Fortress Monroe that Meade had lost 40,000 men in the battles of Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.
Vice President Stephens. Vice President Stephens did not go to Fortress Monroe, as rumored, but went down in the Confederate States steamer Torpedo as far as Newport News, off which the vessel lay until a Yankee truce boat came up, bringing Major Ludlow, the Federal Commissioner. What the result of the dispatches interchanged was, or what was their purport, nobody outside of official circles knows. The Vice President started back Monday morning and reached here yesterday evening, having stopped at Claremont Monday night.
