The following is an extract from tho letter
of ihe New York Tribute's special correal on
dent, describing tLe attempt of a pc:-iion o
Gen. Grant's army to etcrra thj works in tbf
rear of Vicbsburg :
To the outh f the fort,iniinef!ia'eJy ii.

as to sweep wnn an eutuauirg ? bkmhi'-ij.-party.
- Wberi yon look at yoi.Jer steep hit-,
at t'.at cot Jon ot breastworks, contrived with
consummate ingenuity and labor, the hear
sinks within yon. To the left. wih its blood
red bars just visible above the rifle pits, now
Happing defiantly in the bietze, now drm pine,
to the flagstaff and almost lost Iroiu vie-, t
the ensign, of treason. Beyoad the weaicrn
hills, pointing peacefully heavenward,, in
trance contrast with these warlike -.repara-tions,
are the spires of Vickahurg. All along
the lines above aid heluw ia null as the lull
before the tempest.
At length, tired of waitirg, .- seek tht
friendly shadows of ljeii' Catr's Irnt just be
low, and await the progress of events. Bat,
bark I A faint cheer rises mm iho air. They
are charging ! Lawler's brigade is advancing !
There is a general rush to the summit of lite
hill, regardless of sharpshooters and shells
There they go with trailed muskets, halt
crouching, with swift but s ealthy. tread
streaming toward tbe fortress. r'or a moment
laot a shot is 6 red. They ai e screened irum
the raking fire of the enemy jj the side or the
raviue. But jost aj tbey emerge imo the open
pace before the fort, the rifle piis and bastion
to the left, tbe works in front, and the sharp
hooters from tbe right, all oeu upon ihern
-with a deadly storm ot bullets. Lately so de
serted, the redonbuj i are aM alive with heads
and muskets and jets of scooke. The air is
crazy with tbe scarp rattle of musketry and
the crash of cannon.
For a moment, tbe advancing column stag
gers under this tertible ordal. Then a few
brave fellows rnsh forward, right op to 'he
breastworks; hesitate a moirtttt on the edge ol
tbe moat, leap in and disappear, emerge on
tbe other side, ind awugglo with great difii
cnltj up the steep aides ol the parapet. Soaie
of them reach tbe top aud stainl for a moment
the target of a thousand bollels on that proud
but awfol summit, gaze down at something
within then spring forward and disappear. It

and moiionless. Aloug the ' hither tide of the
ravine, and partially screened from musketry,
our soldiers aie couching and lying, and re
turning the fire from the rifle pits us best they
can. An officer can be sett- by the aiJofa
field glass moving backward and forward
among the men, with drawti sword, vairJy at

rnsh forward across the exposed surface, one
or two at a titue. But the danger is loo ap

that stormed tha works at Black River.

endeavored to cheer, but a heart sickness
comes over ns and stops the utterance. What
we want now are strong reinforcements on
that one point. A divUioa of men thrown
forward upon the corner of yonder b.;io:i

ment which seem an age. Landruin's briadt,
or a portion of it comes forward to a position
equidistant from the redoubt with Uiat occu

and can be got no further.
While Laudruni is niovinr uri it is rlain

below. It is evident that an aitack ip-uh be
made elsewhere by way of diverHion. Ac
cordipgly Gen. BficClerrand ordern Hen on and
Hurbridgeto pot forward an I engage the ene
my at once on the right. The constant inquiry
is now what news From the inin? What new
from Sherman and ilcPbersbn? Kvery O.der

unsatisfactory. MeTlieiaon'rt corp was c'os
to the enemy's work. Our tlag a4 planted on
tne rebel parapets at various p'acei. Hirt no
fortB were takeu. I'll morn came to that ellecT.
but proved to be without foundation. It was
evident that the attack was everywhere being
made, not with heavy columns. 'but with for
lorn hopes. The ti'e ot" the enemy m too
concentrated and murderous the ditches too
deep and tbe moles loo hi,.'i to be overcome.
