Later from Vicksburg Grant reported to be returning to Grand Gulf.

Jackson, June 3
--The result of the siege of Vicksburg, so far, is very encouraging to our side. The enemy have been repulsed, with immense slaughter, in every attempt to storm the works. Grant must be compelled to raise the siege in a few days. It is reported that he is returning to Grand Gulf. The storming of the works is looked for in the next forty-eight hours. [So reads the dispatch]

The Memphis Bulletin, of the 30th, claims 5,000 prisoners at Young's Point, and says the news from Vicksburg is not stimulating; that the slaughter on the part of the Federal was not as large as reported; that the place is closely invested, and no apprehensions felt for the result at Vicksburg.
