Grant's force, before the attack upon Vicksburg commenced, was about 60,000 men. He left some 10,000 at Milliken's Bend to guard his stores which were in warehouses, but chiefly were contained in 140 store-boats or transports. Cutting a road through the swamp to Carthage, and bridging the slews, he marched his army to that point and crossed the Mississippi ach will make 52,000, against Grant's 50,000, so that the fears of being crushed by such overwhelming reinforcements is all gammon, and which, in all probability, before this reaches you will be fully known. The Yankee dispatches confirm the battle at Milliken's Bend, and admit that their loss is very severe, though they claim to have driven back Kirby Smith, which we know is not so. This also makes in our favor, and the probability is that the enemy's supplies are cut off, if not destroyed.
