The rebel accounts of six unsuccessful ,
assaults are exaggerations. They seem to
have magnified every reconnoissance into I
an assault. It seems certain, however, ' i
that once since Saturday, Grant did make if
a pretty general assault and failed to carry ! i
the works. i ]

Washington, May 27.?It is considered
by most military men ibat rebel strategy
la:>ks/ to the recro-aing of the frontier.
While ev'.-iy effort .-hall be put forth to
crush Grant, if he be not able to take
Vicksburg by storm, be has acquired by
a most perilous movement a fool-hold in
the rear of the city, which cuts off the en
tiro Yazoo region, and will thereby enable
him, if properly reinforced, to push back
the rebel base to the great river of Ala
bama, and thereby insure the early fall of
Vicksburg and Port Hudson.
The latest information from Vicksburg,
received by Government, is contained in
an unofficial dispatch from Memphis, May
27th, which states that two boat* from
Vicksburg had just arrived at Memphis,
ibis would make the latest dates from
Vicksbrg to the 25th insl., us it takes two
lays to run from Vicksburg to Memphis.
A telegram says no official dispatches
i.id been received by boat, but that they
?eport the attack on Vicksburg was pro
gressing, and that Grant was still gaining;
t is also reported that Gen. Carr aud Col.
Jloomer had been killed.
Telegraphic advices from headquarters
irmy of. the Potomac, rep ?rt that tbe rebel
tickets to-day, shouted across the river to
jut pickets that the Yankees had taken
Hcksburg. This is undoubtedly the
opinion o! the rebels on the Rappabauuock,
>ut whether correct or not time will show.
Nothing as yet has been heard from the
novements of Gen. Johnston, but he is uu
loubteJly eusraged in collecting forces I
ritb the intention of attacking Grant in
tis rear, but it is not believed that he can
btain force enough, before Vicksburg is
arried, to make a formidable ciemonsira- ]
