he 25th inst., writes us as follows: A Yankee officer who came over in flag of truce boat yesterday said, "Grant had telegraphed Halleck that he had driven Pemberton from his outer line of entrenchments, captured 57 guns, (all Pemberton had except three.) And his line extended from Haines's Bluff all around to the river belowPemberton had except three.) And his line extended from Haines's Bluff all around to the river below Vicksburg, and that he had invested Vicksburg." If so, it is the worst "investment" Grant ever made. Of course it is untrue. Hot climates seem to increase the fecundity of falsehood in the Yankee mind. This time last year Pope telegraphed Halleck he had taken 10,000 prisoners at Corinth. I am not going to believe that Vicksburg will fall. It is simply impossible, unless Pemberton is a traitor, which I cannot believe. There is no use being despondent in advance, and censure is unjust until we know it is deserved. Last night there was considerable commotion among the Yankees over the river, a great rattling of planks, etc. Our boys were wide awake.

The object was Haines's Buff, the key of Vicksburg — as good as an open door, and thus will save life and consummate our wishes.--He goes no nearer Vicksburg than Jackson, destroys all commissary stores and the railway bridge. The enemy have sent an army to cut off his retreat instead of advance. So much in our hand. He fought his way in two terrific battles to Jackson and cut the railroad.--At Jackson fought another battle and was victorious. Johnston reinforced Pemberton with three brigades. Loring escaped South, and will probably join Bragg. Grant will probably capture or disperse the whole rebel army. There is no chance for them to escape. They cannot prevent his junction with the force awaiting him at Haines's Bluff to march into Vicksburg. Another great battle may be fought, but we think Vicksburg is won, and the Mississippi river is clear. At Charleston, Monitors will attempt the reduction of the outer forts along the beach before again atta
st time that we had to wait anxiously for the news of the result of the tremendous assaults which we knew were making upon it. The news of Sunday, published yesterday, was cheering, though not very definite. There had certainly been one repulse of the enemy, and probably two or three; but the enemy still confronted the lines of defence in rear of the place, and it was further stated that transports had passed, up the river Mississippi.--Gen. Johnston had thrown in reinforcements to Gen. Pemberton, and was himself in rear of the enemy, with what force we do not know, and of course would not state if we did. A man skilled in strategy, and of so much forecasts and energy as he possesses, we are convinced that he will leave nothing undone for the safety of Vicksburg and to defeat the enemy. Vague and complicated as the messages have been the strength of our defences and the powerful natural advantages of the town for defence justify the expectation of another severe repulse to the e
