ccompanied by Gen. Williams, with four regiments of infantry. The Rebel fortifications were bombarded June 26. for several hours, without result; but Lt.-Col. Ellet, with two rains, went that day up the Yazoo river, to capture three Rebel gunboats, which, on his approach, were set on fire and impelled down the current, with intent to envelop our vessels in the flames. The Rebel boats were destroyed. The siege of Vicksburg was continued by our fleet, and a determined attack made on it July 1, but defeated. The Rebel ram Arkansas came down July 15. the Yazoo, ran through the astonished Union fleet, and took refuge under the batteries of Vicksburg, unharmed. Repeated attempts to destroy or sink her July 15-22. were defeated by the shore batteries; and, on the 24th, the siege was raised; Com. Farragut, with Gen. Williams, returning down the river; while Com. Davis, with his fleet, steamed up to the mouth of the Yazoo, thus abandoning, for the time, the reopening of the Miss
ve artillery reached him about 4 P. M. of this day; about the time that Holmes's force, moving down the James, appeared on our left flank (our army having here faced about), and opened a fire of artillery on Warren's brigade, on our extreme left. He was at once astonished by a concentrated fire from 30 guns, and recoiled in haste, abandoning two of his cannon. The rear of our wasted, wayworn army reached the position assigned it, upon and around Malvern Hill, during the next forenoon, July 1. closely pursued by the converging columns of the Rebels. The anxious days and sleepless nights of the preceding week; the constant and resolute efforts required to force their 40 miles of guns and trains over the narrow, wretched roads which traverse White Oak Swamp; their ignorance of the locality and exposure to be ambushed and assailed at every turn, rendered this retreat an ordeal for our men long to be remembered. Mr. Samuel Wilkeson, who shared in this experience, wrote of it as f
were in Brashear, which we had shamefully lost, with nearly 1,000 prisoners, a strong fort, 10 heavy guns, many small arms, and tents, equipments, supplies, valued by the enemy at $6,000,000, and possibly worth to us $2,000,000. Thousands of negroes, liberated by Banks's triumphant advance to Alexandria, were reduced by this and our kindred reverses to a harsher slavery than that from which they had so recently been delivered. The road to New Orleans Tne Louisiana Democrat (Alexandria, July 1) has a magnifying Rebel letter from one engaged in the capture of Brashear, who claims for that post an importance hardly second to Vicksburg, numbers 1,800 prisoners and 6,000 negroes among the spoils, and adds: This brilliant campaign of Gen. Taylor has another great object in view, and one of vast importance, namely: A diversion to force the enemy to raise the siege of Port Hudson. He now has his choice, to lose New Orleans or to abandon his operations against Port Hudson, and reti
Gen. Buford, with another division, had moved directly upon Gettysburg; where lie encountered July 1. the van of the Rebel army, under Gen. Heth, of Hill's corps, and drove it back on the division,minutes. Born in Lancaster in 1820; entering the army in 1846; he had Gettysburg — battle of July 1. served his country in Mexico, in California, and in nearly every important action yet fought ight at Manchester — had been preparing to move, as directed, to Middleburg, when, at 2 P. M., July 1. he received a dispatch from Howard at Gettysburg, stating that the 1st and 11th corps were therded; falling back under command of a Major. They mustered 2,800 strong on the morning of the 1st of July: at roll-call on the 4th, they numbered 835. and Pickett is left alone to contend with the ho directed to make a demonstration on Richmond. Gen. Keyes was appointed to lead it. Starting July 1. from White House, about 5,000 men of all arms, under the more immediate command of Gen. Getty,
d the Ohio from western Kentucky near Leavenworth, Ind., about the middle of June, raiding through Orange, Orleans, and Washington counties; and were trying to make their way back into Kentucky, when they were cornered June 19, 1863. by the Leavenworth home guards, Maj. Clendenin, and the steamboat Izetta, and were soon glad to surrender. Barely one of them escaped to the Kentucky shore, and he was immediately captured. At length, setting out June 27. from Sparta, Morgan crossed July 1-2. the Cumberland, then in flood, near Burkesville — building boats for his trains and swimming his horses — with a wellmounted force of 2,028 effectives and 4 guns; pushing back Col. Wolford's cavalry, who sought to impede his march, passing through July 3. Columbia, which was partially sacked by his subordinates, contrary to orders, and striking July 4. Green river at Tebb's bend; where 200 of the 25th Michigan, Col. O. H. Moore, had, wholly within the last 24 hours, intrenched thems
ve miles from his fort; and there Col. Phillips attacked them with spirit — he driving them (or they escaping with their booty) over the Arkansas, with a loss of 50 or 60 on each side. Phillips seems to have conducted his part of the affair with judgment and energy. A train of 300 wagons, conveying supplies from Kansas to Fort Blunt, and guarded by ten companies of Western cavalry, with the 1st Kansas colored, 800 strong, Col. J. M. Williams, and 500 Indians, Maj. Form an, had a fight July 1. at the crossing of Cabin creek, Indian Territory, with a force of Texans and Indians under Standwatie, the Cherokee Rebel chief. The Texans fought well; but they were only 700; while the Rebel Indians proved of no account. Standwatie was driven off, with a total loss of 23 on our side, including Maj. Forman, wounded. The Rebels left 40 dead on the field and 9 prisoners. Gen. Blunt, learning that Fort Blunt, his advanced post, was in peril, rode thither from Fort Scott--175 miles--in f
, including aliens who had declared their intention to become naturalized, between the ages of 18 and 45--those between 20 and 35 to constitute the first class; all others the second class — from which the President was authorized, from and after July 1, to make drafts at his discretion of persons to serve in the National armies for not more than three years; any one drafted and not reporting for service to be considered and treated as a deserter. A commutation of $300 was to be received in lied by it. Still, in regard to Mr. Vallandigham and all others, I, must hereafter, as heretofore, do so much as the public service may seem to require. I have the honor to be, respectfully, yours, &c., A. Lincoln. The Committee rejoined, July 1. controverting the President's positions; repelling his imputation that they or their party would encourage desertions, or resistance to the draft; suggesting that The measures of the Administration, and its changes of policy in the prosecuti
