New England and the Mississippi

--A member of the Yankee army, which didn't take Vicksburg, thus writes to the Chicago Times:

‘ In our humble judgment the Administration — or, perhaps we should say the party who control the Administration — do not desire that the Mississippi their be opened this year. The party who control the Administration are a New England party, and the latest of New England is that the Mississippi shall never be opened.
