Grant Demands a surrender — Pemberton's defiant haply — the Federal Lessees.

Jackson, June 1--General Grant demanded the surrender of Vicksburg on Thursday, giving three days to Gen'l Pemberton to consider the demand Gen'l Pemberton replied that he did not want fifteen minutes, and that his troops would die in the trenches before they would surrender.

The enemy's gunboats are firing hot shot at the city.

The Federal loss is estimated at twenty-five to thirty thousand, including Generals Kerr, Lay, Bubridge, Bonan, and one other.

Por. Hudson is invested.
