Arrival of prisoners --Capt. Grant, of co. H, 5th Moneg't, arrived in Richmond yesterday in charge of 49 prisoners from Jackson, Miss. They were Indiana and Illinois troops. In this lot of prisoners were two men, R. C. Perkins, of the 18th Mo. (U S) reg't, and J W Rose, of co I, 1st Tenn (U S) reg't. These men formerly belonged to our army — deserted, joined the Yankees and were captured and recognized. They were sent to Castle. Thunder for trial by Court Martial. Two Yankee officers, who were captured near Jackson, Miss., started to Richmond with the above lot, but when near Atlanta, Ga., succeeded in bribing two of the guard and made their escape, their custodians leaving with them.
s, 11 A. M., May 18.--Major-General Halleck: McPherson took this place on the 12th, after a brisk fight of more than two hours. Our loss, 51 killed and 181 wounded. Enemy's loss, 75 killed (buried by us) and 186 prisoners captured, besides the wounded. McPherson is now at Clinton. Gen. Sherman is on the direct Jackson road. Gen. McClernand is bringing up the rear. I will attack the State capital to-day. "U. S. Grant, Maj.-Gen'l." From Memphis.--A dispatch says Grant has taken Jackson--Capitol burned--5 to 10,000 mounted men near Okolona, threatening an advance in the direction of the Memphis railroad. A citizen just up from Jackson says the enemy evacuated Vicksburg on Saturday, marching on the ridge northeast to Livingston, a post village in Madison co., Miss., 20 miles northwest of Jackson. It is impossible that the movement from Vicksburg is to concentrate for a battle with Grant's army. The defeat of the rebels at Raymond is said to have been very disastrous
n killed and wounded in the several battles amounted to only 17,000 to 18,000, which, with the prisoners captured by the enemy, numbering five or six thousand more.--would make the total loss from 23,000 to 24,000. Lee, it is stated by the same authorities, lost more than Hooker did, or about 30,000 men — exceeding half his original force. He could not have been reinforced by more than from 10,000 to 15,000 men. That would leave his whole force after his losses — including the loss of General Jackson, who was a host in himself — from 30,000 to 40,000 men. Before this small force Hooker retreated with an army which, after all his losses, still numbered 136,000 men, or about four to one of the enemy.--So much for the generalship and fighting qualities of the new Napoleon. Miscellaneous. The negroes at present at the "Contraband Camp," Washington city, are to be immediately employed in cultivating Gen. Lee's estate at Arlington and other abandoned farms in the vicinity of tha<

He had the highest respect for the office of President of the United States, which was filled by such men as Washington, Jefferson, and Jackson, and he would tell them that there had been new glory added to the name of Jackson. (Loud cheers, and cries of "God bless the good boy.") There had been new glory added to it by the great hero whose funeral solemnities were but lately celebrateJackson. (Loud cheers, and cries of "God bless the good boy.") There had been new glory added to it by the great hero whose funeral solemnities were but lately celebrated in Richmond. That might be called treason, but was it treason? ("No, no.") Mr. McMasters, another of the speakers on the occasion, said that Vallandigham had called for peace in order to try the last hope of restoring the Union. It had been tried by a war in violation of the Constitution, and had failed, and always would fail. He knew that what ever men spoke in these times they spoke in their own peril, and yet he would say that the South never could be conquered. The same blood tha
