incendiaries last week, Every means has been resorted to so discover them, but without success. The sappers and miners on both sides are hard at work, and can hear the sound of each others picks. The report that two ladies had been killed during the bombardment is untrue. No citizens has been injured. [second Dispatch.] Jackson, Miss. June 26. --(Vicksburg Advices from Vicksburg to the 23d have been received. There was no assault made last Saturday, but every gun in Grant's works and in the fleet was brought to bear on the devoted garrison. The fire was kept up from 2 o'clock until 10 o'clock A. M. Our gunners responded briskly. The Yankees admit that our fire was very destructive and the accuracy of our gunners unequaled. Our loss seventy-five killed and wounded.
