The Campaign in Mississippi. A western correspondent of the Columbia Guardian sums up the results, thus far, of Grant's movement against the rear of Vicksburg: Let us view stern facts and deduct our own conclusions as to the final termination of affairs about Vicksburg and Jackson. First, then, it is a fact that Grant'sGrant's army, from thirty to fifty thousand strong, have repulsed us at Grand Gulf, and forced their way through our lines, repulsing us still at every intermediate point at which we offered resistance, and reached and captured Jackson. Secondly, it is certain that our forces under Gens. Stevenson, Loring, Walker, Tilghman and Lee--Gen. from Vicksburg, and may intercept his supplies and reinforcements and cut off his retreat. It, then, our line of interception can be maintained, it is patent that Grant cannot make a protracted siege, but finding himself surrounded, must soon either advance to a conflict of arms or be forced by starvation to surrender. A grea
the Government has received from Vicksburg is by way of Memphis up to 4 A. M. 24th. Vicksburg was then holding out, and Grant was hopeful of success.

Rumors, withfrom Chicago says that on Friday morning last Pemberton sent a flag of truce to Gran', offering to surrender Vicksburg if Grant would allow the rebels to lay down their arms and march out, and that the offer was refused.

Every storehouse, every safe was broken — all moneys, all goods of every description stolen and destroyed.--Grant sent an officer to Green and ordered him to surrender every dollar in his vaults — which he did. Fortunately, many of oureir moneys, and only suffered by loss of their goods and buildings. Several millions have been lost by the occupation of Grant's army. Oh, what insincere, heartless, villainous thieves, officers and privates, these Yankees are. War is reputabl, rob, ravish, murder, and military priests will grant you absolution in the form of a parable. But now for facts. Grant entered Jackson, after slight skirmishing, last Friday, burnt the Confederate house, the depots, the Penitentiary, the fa hoped not.] Johnston is working hard to organize a force to succor Vicksburg. We have no communication with that town. Grant has the railroad, and some say he is in Vicksburg. Jackson will henceforth be fortified and made the rendezvous for our
Yankee prisoners. --Only six Abolition prisoners were brought to the Libby prison on Saturday. Among them was Surgeon H. S. Hewett, of Grant's army, who was captured at Jackson, Miss. There are about 00 prisoners of war now here who will be sent North in a few days, as soon as arrangements can be made.
