The situation. We have lost Vicksburg. That no longer admits of a doubt. We have lost Vicksburg, and Grant is rapidly advancing upon Johnston and Jackson, with forces which are represented as irresistibly superior. The latter General will now be compelled to retreat, we presume and as he has heretofore been much celebrated for the masterly character of his retrograde movements, we are induced to hope that he will not, on this occasion, fall below his reputation. The fall of Vicksburg is a heavy blow but it is by no means of such a character as ought to render us despondent. In the eat States of Mississippi and Alabama, now that the people are thoroughly awake to their situation, may be found resources sufficient to cover all that we have lost by the fall of Vicksburg. The Yankees do not open the navigation of the river by their success, and that is the great object, they say for which they have been fighting. Above all, we look to the invincible spirit of the Southwest--th

They and the men were paroled, and immediately allowed to march out with all their colors. Immediately after the surrender Gen. Grant sent a boat load of supplies to the famished garrison. Some of the officers have arrived here. [Second Dispatch.] Jackson, July 7. --But little more is known of the fall of Vicksburg. Officers who have come out say that had Gen. Johnston reached there twelve days sooner he could not have relieved the garrison, as they could not muster over 7,000 men for duty. Many of the citizens were leaving with their families, negroes, stock, &c. The proprietors of the Mississippian are packing up their effects, type, &c., preparatory to leaving. [Third Dispatch] Jackson, July 8. --Col. Montgomery, Aid to Gen. Pemberton, with 200 mounted men, arrived here to-day. Gen. Green and Col. Irving, of Missouri, were killed
unday previous, Stuart was reported by the Sun to have been within six miles of Washington city, in Montgomery Co., where he captured 1,200 mules, come 100 prisoners, and some arms. The same paper states that he levied a tax of $350,000 upon the city of York, giving twenty days time in which to pay. Some $10,000 had been collected by the citizens. The Sun, of the 2d given information that Pemberton attacked Grant at Vicksburg and defeated him, and that Grant endeavored to escape, when Johnston fell upon him and out his army to pieces. The Sun says that Banks has arrived at New Orleans from Port Hudson with only 5,000 men the remnant of his army. I have seen neither of the papers, but gather my information from those who have real them. It is reported here to day that on yesterday ten of imboden's cavalry went into Mercersburg, Pa., and whilst quietly riding through the streets, they were tired upon by some of the citizens and seven of them killed. Imboden to day goes to d
o-morrow, which will doubtless be a finality, as Gen. Meade's forces, reinforced by Generals Couch, Schenck, and Heintzelman, will be nearly double Lee's army. Headquarters Army of the Potomac, July 6 The rebel General Perier is wounded, Gens. Johnston and Kemper are killed. General Farnsworth, of our cavalry, is killed. The rebel losses are estimated at 20,000. Our troops in excellent spirits. Gen. Butterfield's wound is more severe than supposed, but not serious. The rebels abs reported in a crippled condition, owing to defective boilers, etc. The steamers Charleston, Sirus, Banshee, Lizzie, and Fannie, had arrived at Nassau from Wilmington. The Flora, Calypso, and Ruby, are reported captured. The steamers Danube and Hebe are at Nassau, bound to a Southern port. From Vicksburg. The American has Vicksburg advices to July 2d. The condition of affairs was unchanged, but Gen. Johnston was reported to be seriously threatening the enemy's rear.
at many things which they never have done — and have been rapidly moved from one point to another at a great distance in an incredibly short space of time. Magruder one day is marching upon New Orleans, when it is not probable he is outside of the boundaries of Texas. Everything is received with doubt that comes from that direction. The last report that Dick Taylor had crossed the Mississippi and was joining Gardner at Port Hudson, had completely routed Banks, and marched on to reinforce Johnston of course must be received with the incredulity that the questionable ter of everything by telegraph from that quarter is so well calculated to inspire. But all at once the telegraphers from the North appear to be ambitions of outstripping their contemporaries of the far South, and with one bound go a long way ahead of them. We are informed from Martinsburg that Gen. Lee, by an adroit move, has captured forty thousand of the enemy, and they "refuse to be paroled! " The number of priso
