Vicksburg.

The Yankees have told so many lies about Vicksburg that we believe nothing they say. Their dates, which we republish this morning are not later than the 19th. Gen. Johnston's telegram, announcing the capture of Milliken's Bend, reached President Davis on the 22d. It will be remembered that he said nothing about the recapture of Milliken's Bend. We believe the whole story to be a Yankee lie. We have not the least fear that they will ever take Vicksburg.
