Crops in Georgia. --A correspondent of the Charleston Courier, who has been through several counties in Georgia, and conversed with planters and others from all parts of the State, writes from Macon, Ga, as follows: From personal knowledge, and information from others, the coming wheat harvest, should no accident befall it, will be such an one the oldest inhabitant has never seen; the whole State is literally one great wheat field. The severe cold weather of last winter has destroyed the fly, and all other insects. Nothing can now damage it except rust, but as we have had a dry spring, no danger from that is apprehended. Unless there is an entire failure in all other States, wheat will sell here before the first day of July for less than one dollar per bushel. Georgia alone will be able to furnish the Confederacy in wheat bread for twelve months.

On Monday it rained hard all day, rendering the roads impassable. It was found impossible to move our artillery or get our troops into position until this morning, when a general advance was ordered at daylight. Gen. Thomas yesterday made a reconnaissance on two roads, and Gen. McCock on one road, reporting the enemy in force at this place, with the addition of Buckner a division, which arrived Monday evenin
s, who now hold the Pass. As this gives them the control of the road, and affords a direct route to the city, the Confederates will not be likely to destroy the bridge, unless compelled to do so to out off an advancing Federal force from New Orleans. The Operations at Vicksburg. The Yankee letters from Vicksburg assert that they hold the fort which they undermined and blew up. Their dispatches, however, do not so claim.
