It was a favorite axiom of Sam Patch that some things could be done, as well as others ; but that is a rule that has many exceptions, and General Sherman's expedition is one of them. Veni, vidi, vici--in a horn. In other words, we came, we saw, and did not conquer. Having failed to take Vicksburgh, the next best thing was to prevent being taken ourselves, and we did it nobly. A dark night is sometimes an excellent institution, especially if it be accompanied with plentiful showers of rain, with a due infusion of fog. Under cover of such a fortunate concentration of events, the right wing of the Thirteenth army corps,under command of Major-Gen. W. T. Sherman, saved its bacon, else your correspondent would now probably be the forced recipient of
