Cljifajgo tribune.
31 can AY, 31AT 18, 1803,
The news that comes to us through
rebel sources, from Grant’s army, indicates
that that General is busy, and we should
Bay doing a satisfactory work, as far as
heard from; at least we judge so by the
information derived through the Richmond
Enquirer. Our news of Sunday- night from ,
Hobile, through Chattanooga, announces
a victory by our forces on the 14th, and
the occupation of Jackson. Our latest ad
vices from • Gen. Grant, through our own
news channels, arc to the llih. There is
ground lor the ho]>e that the silence "below
Vicksburg will be broken by something
Cheering from that quarter.
The intelligence from Gen. Banks shows
that he has pushed his successes up the
Atchafalaya, and by the capture of Alex
andria, has effected a junction with Por
ter’s fleet on the Red River. Things are
looking bright thereaway.
Will our Northern croakers read what
ILe rebel Richmond journal, extensively
quoted elsewhere, thinks of thesituation.
It will or should prove an antidote to much
of the gloom which has arisen out of recent
reverses in Virginia. Bad as things look,
the darkest side is turned toward the rebels.
We are veiy glad to dismiss from our
Columns the Hager case. Unpleasing as
Such exposures are, this same bitter and
Bauscoug dose contains a solid grain of
Wholesome caution, wlffeh the parties tb
the case, whet her prosecutor, (we had near
ly written persecutor,) prosecuted, or pros
ecuting witnesses, may as well divide up
in about equal paits among themselves.
The report that comes to us through cor
respondence of the New York Commercial
Advertiser should he received with caution.
Jf true, the people have hitherto been wo-
Jully deceived as to the fatality to bur arms
5n the great contest on the Rappahannock.
TVe cannot believe it, until more certainly
Our Springfield special dispatch relates
St very dirty, but characteristic, outrage
Committed by a gang of Copperheads in
the vicinity of Quincy, upon a hand of
poor negroes, who were escaping from
rebel masters in Missouri These ruffians
Should be caught and sharp punishment
It will gratify the mends of Lieut Eme
ry P. Dustin in this cijjfc to learn that he
Ixas been honorably acquitted bythc Court
jMartial which has been tiring him for
killing Pilcher in the streets of Springfield.
The case was one dearly justifiable.
CST* The Rebel Congress, m secret ses
sion, has authorized Jell Davis to suspend
the writ of hahebs c&rpus, and make arbi
trary arrests wherever he pleases. Yet
you won’t hear Northern sympathizers
With the rebellion, who are daily denounc
ing the ‘‘Lincoln despotism,” utter even
the mildest reprobation of Jeff. Not they.
It turns out that the reported rebel
laid in the vicinity of Chain Bridge, near
Washington, was one of those shameless
c<wards which seem to constitute the
Vitality of the New York Reporters loca
ted at the Capital. There should be some
Suitable punishment provided for the ras
cals who invent these falsehoods.
tS'T'he iron-dads of the Charleston
fleet arc said to have all been thoroughly
repaired, and with the exception of
changes in the armament, are again ready
for the assault.
Poitrnrss Monroe, May 16.—The Rich
mond inquirer of yesterday says that fighting
Was going on in Mississippi. The cnemyycs
terday advanced, 10,000 strong, upon Bapidan,
where Gen. Gregg had 41,000 infantry and a
few cavalry. Skirmishing commenced about
D o’clock in the morning. The enemy was
continually reinforced till 1 o’clock p. m.,
When vc opened the battle heavily with
musketry. Knowing that the enemy was
heavily reinforced and ready to engage us
with their foil force, we retired to Missis
sippi Springs, where wc have reinforcements.
Col. McGarrack of the 10th Tenn., was killed.
The firing to-day was heavy and continued
toward Jackson.
New Tons, May 16.—The following arc the
latest rebel reports in the Richmond papers:
Jackson, Miss., May ll,—Eleven of Grant’s
cavalry entered and burned Crystal Springs.
oh the New Orleans railroad, to-day, at 12
o'clock. The enemy are fortifying at Rock
Sittings and Western Springs. Gen. Oster
liaufi is at Cayuga with ;>,OOO cavalry and six
or seven regiments of infantry. The enemy
are reinforcing at Willow Springs and Rocky
Springs, from the river. Grant will probably
advance east, and not direct to Vicksburg.
Vicksburg’, May 11.— Nothing of Impor
tance transpired to-day. A barge loaded wßh
•coal ran port the batteries last night. The
enemy’s licet above the city is increasing.
The Richmond Enqn\rtr'\vx& a savage article
On Burnside for his order against spies and
traitors at home, and condoles wlthVallan
flivham in his persecution. • -
Richmond* papers say there Is no doubt
that Jackson’s wound ‘was Inflicted by the
mistake of his own men. He received three
halls iu the lefi arm and hand. This oc
curred after dark on Saturday. Hiving
given orders to fire on anything coming up
the road, before he left the lines, and on see
ing Federal skirmishers before him, he turned
to retreat, and was shot by his own men, Uls
funeral was very largely attended, by Jcffi
Davis, the rebel Cabinet, &c. His body was
Ecnt to Lexington. A statue is to bo creeled
in the capital.
Unreliable rumors are going the rounds, of
a great land and naval battle at Vicksburg.
Rebel telegrams of the 11th say nothing of it.
Fortrtp* Monroe, May 13,1563.
The British frigate Rinaldy arrived this af
ternoon, having left Charleston at 3 p. m. last
By this steamer wc have received a copy of
the Charleston Itaihj Courier of May 11, which
contains: the following:
Vicksbukc, May ".—The enemy have made
no movement this side of the Big Black Riv
er. The enemy's cavalry Is reported to be
about Cayuga. ” A party of Tankec cavalry
crossed at Hanker-son's Ferry on Thursday
night, captured Mr. Owen and his son, plan
ters, und re-crossed the Big Black again.
Vicssbcbg, May B.—’ The enemy arc using

front to-day. The enemy are landing troops
at Young’s Point. H is enpposed they are
destined to reinforce Grant.'
The ITV.iVf newspaper office was destroyed
by lire this afternoon. The origin of the fire
j6 unknown.
Among the Yankees captured by Forrest
are many citizens or natives of Southern
States. Wc hope the Governors of the several
States will promptly make a demand for the
retention and trial of these traitors, under
the Bute laws. It will be worse than idle
mockery to turn them loose on exchange.

In Buell’s case it is believed the record of

Especial Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
PdASELvmA, May 17,15G3.
The Philadelphia JHspaich of this morning
publishes a dispatch from Washington, dated
May IC, which says the fact that both officers
and men, to a considerable number daily, ar
rive from the Rappahannock and proceed to
their homes on leaves of absence, Is regarded
as additional indication that the army will
not immediately make a movement against
the enemy.
General Hooker's purposes and designs of
movement, so far as the army ot the Poto
mac is concerned, arc in the absence of facts —
mere matters of conjecture. Regiments of
nine months’ and two years’ men are con
stantly pouring in through Washington to
the North, their time having expired. There
is a feeling of nervousness upon this subject
in some quarters; but our military leaders are
catisfied that If we arc to loose 20,000 or 30,000
men from the army at dll, it is better to loose
them now.
The Sunday Transcript (Copperhead) de
votes considerable space to the discussion of
the draft, and says Secretary Stanton has
placed an interpretat ion on the conscription
act that practically ignores the 8300 exemp
tion clause. This is said to have been done
on representation that throughout the West
the acceptance of the 8300, in lieu of service,
would have the effect, in a large measure, to
defeat the main Intention of the law which
was to produce soldiers for the army, on the
ground that the three hundred dollar clause
is permissive, and not mandatory, and that
therefore it is optional with him to accept or
reject the money, for which no provision is
made, either for collection or safe
keeping. It says the Secretary of
■War has decided to Ignore the
three hundred dollar exemption clause alto
gether, and that in this bo Is sustained by the
President and Solicitor Whiting. In conclu
sion, it says the draft will take place about
the Ist of July.
The soldiers now returning homo will have
had six weeks away from the army, and they
will begin to be restless by the middle of
The War Department will offer a bounty of
three hundred dollars to all who will re-en
list, using the funds accumulated to pay three
hundred dollars rather than go to the field. It
is expected that nearly all these returning
soldiers will accept high bounties and return
to the service. Sir weeks will undoubtedly
be consumed in the enrolling of all persons
subject to do military duty.
Washington, May 16.—From the fact that
a number of officers and men daily arrive from
the Rappahannock, and get leave of absence
and go homc,is regarded asan indication that
the army will not move at present.
General Stahl, a day or two since,sent outa
scouting party to Lccsbnrgtohunt the rebels.
Xonc were found in force. A skirmish with a
few of the Black Horse Cavalry, near Warren
town Junction, resulted in killing a citizen
and wounding several soldiers. We had three
New Toss, May 16.—A Washington specia
to the N. T. Tribune says:
The last of the wounded loft on tho other
side of the Rappahannock have been brought
across the river. As good care was taken of
them while they" remained in the enemy’s
lines as could reasonably be expected. Our
surgeons have been with them since Hooke
crossed the river. The medical stores sen
over at the suggestion of Dec, were taken post
session ol by the rebels, but were issued to
our surgeons on proper requisitions. The
dead of both armies have been buried.
Washington, May 17-—lt Is ascertained
from a gentleman reluming from the Rappa*
bannock, that Gen. Hooker seems highly
gratified with his recent visit to the President.
The river front of tho enemy has been recon
noitered, and the discovery made that* during
the night of the Hth they threw up new and
extensive earthworks along the ridge of hills
in the rear, to the left of Fredericksburg. Xfc
is reported to-day that every available soldier
now on detailed service in and around Wash
ington and Baltimore, and on the railroads in,
Virginia and Maryland, will be forwarded to
Hooker’s command, and their places supplied
by Pennsylvania militia, which It is said has
been tendered by Gov. Curtin.

New York. May IT. —The TiuuS army dis
patch, dated Friday evening, says Stuart is,
for the present, in command of Jackson’s
corps, which consists of four full divisions, of
15,C00 men each. A rebel deserter states their
force prior to the arrival of Longatreet .was
12,000. He brought 20,000 more. Rebel offi
cers estimate their loss at 20,000.
"Washington, May 17.—About twenty-five
officers and men from the Chancellorsville
battle ground, and twenty others, have been

Washington, May IC.—A dispatch received
by the War Department, says .the prisoners
arriving at Fortress Monroe, from Richmond,
think that the whole number taken by the
rebels, in the recent battles, will not exceed
A Washington special to the World says:
Gen. Hooker came up from the army last
night, and to-day had an interview with the
President, lusting for some time, after which
he returned to the army in a special boat.
From what I can learn, Hooker returned to
retain his present command, and to conduct
the aroiy, unaided by Jlallcck, throughout an
other advance, whenever such shall be deter
mined upon. This you may consider as relia
ble at present.
The Herald's Washington dispatch, May
loth, says:
The President has been closeted to-day with
Gen Sickles.
Upon neintzelman’s report, the President
has restored Gqp- Stoughton to his rank.
New Youk, May 10. — A Washington'letter
to the Cottimcrcial says: It is certain that the
;\m»y of the Potomac lost a large number of
prisoners and missing—that its dead and
wounded exceed 22,000-—that it left, on the
south hank of the Rappahannock, twenty
four pieces of artillery, with a large quantity
of anus and ammunition, and that a majority
of its general ollicers desire a new command
er. Hooker frankly informed the President
that he will resign tho command, if this step
is considered desirable by the Government.
Washing Toy, May 10.—There is no troth
in the alleged threatening movement of Mos
by’s cavalry in Loudon County, Virginia.
They number but IDO men and no raid is at all
probable or indeed possible.
Washington, May 15.—The 13th section of
the Conscription law to-davreceived an inter
pretation, on the representation of influential
citizens oflllinols, thattheacceptanceofs3oo
from drafted men in lieu of service through
out the Wesiwonld degenerate the enrollment
measure and defeat the intent to raise an army.
Secretary Stanton is understood to have
decided that it is optional wVji him to receive
the money or-reject. Solicitor Whiting, of
the War Department, is understood to cducuf
in these views. The President is also under
stood to concur in their lawfulness and poli
cy. The clause of the act selling exemptions
at S3OO will therefore, practically, be ignored.
J. B. Gllfcalher deserted from the 30th Ala
bama regiment. He says the rebel troops are
mostly back in their old encampments. His
regiment has bntTDO men fit fordnry. It lost
2125 men in the late action. Tlmrebol officers
estimate their loss at 25,000. The death of
►Jackson had a great effect upon the troops.
The divisions ot Gen. Hood and Picket hive
arrived from the Blackwater since the battle.
Fortress Monroe, May 15.—Information
just received by Col. Ludlow, Commissioner
for the exchance of prisoners, shows that the
whole number of ourtnen, captured at Fred
ericksburg, will uot exceed 4,500. The bal
ance stated as about to arrive have been cap
tured at the West and elsewhere.
New York, May 10. —The New York Tri
bute Washington dispatch says:
■. The record m Gen. Buell’s case has arrived
here. There is reason to believe that tho
findings of the court arc such as show that
the President had ample reason for removing
Bncll from the command of tho Department
of the Cumberland, and that the Government
only erred in postponing his removal so long.

A brilliant little exploit was performed
yesterday. Parties of rebels Jwd been ap

to see the Yankees. Taking with him two
companies of Tennessee cavalry, his escort
and hall a dozen officers from Craft’s brigade,
in all about eighty men, Gen. Palmer rode
but a few miles, and came upon eighty of the
Sd Georgia cavalry, Lieut. GoL Thompson,
posted In a lane. Not wailing to fire, Palmer
and Lis men immediately charged them with
sabres. The rebels broke aud fled to the
nearest woods, and there fought bravely for
some time, until the superior prowess of our
hoys compelled them to lly, losing several
killed aud wounded, aud eighteen prisoners.
Our loss is five wounded. Amongthc prison

Albany, May 10.-—There was considerable

among the soldiers present. The speakers
were interrupted by noisy demonstrations.
Finally, a rush was made for the stage, and
great excitement prevailed for a short time,
and the proceedings were brought to a stand.
Chairs on the stage were broken and thrown
in the crowd, and, for a few moments, it
seemed as If the soldiers would gain posses

They were In small force, however, and finally
retired, when order was partially restored,
and the proceedings were resumed, although
not without occasional interruption. Event

The Battle at-A-tlixco.
[From the New York Times, 14tb.]
By the arrival of the English steamer Clyde,
at Havana, from from Vera Cruz, and the
steamer Eagle at this port, from Havana, files
of papers from the Mexican Republic have
been received, containing full details of the
operations ot the siege of Puebla. Those in
the French interest and the papers that favor
the Mexican Government are very discordant
in their accounts, giving often an entirely
different version of the same affair as will be
seen in the following accounts of the battle at
On the 22d of April last, an expedition left,
under the command of Col. Brincourt, with
the object of supplying Atlixco wrh provi
sions and forage., It was composed of the
following forces: A battalion of the Ist regi
ment of Zouaves; a section of mountain artil
lery; three squadrons of African Chasseurs;
the squadron commanded by D. Abraham de
la Pena, and two battalions of infantry, of
Gen. Marquez’ force. Total 1,400 men.
Atlixco was occupied by some forces of
Caivajal, who abandoned the place on the ap
proach of the Franco-Mexican troops.
On the afternoon of the 13tb, the inhabitants
of Atlixco and its vicinity, gave the alram,
announcing the appearance of Carvaj U with
several thousand men; the bells were set
ringing, the streets deserted, and thcchurches
filled with women. The sentries on the look
out signalled, in fact, the approach of some
squadrons which appeared to be wandering
round the town.
On the morning of tho 14th there appeared,
distinctly, in the plain, several squadrons and
various bodies of infantry about a league off,
taking different directions, as if they intended
to surround Atlixco and hem iu completely
the forces of the expedition.
As the enemy’s foYces were separated by
large spaces of ground, Col. Briucourt order
ed his attack in such a manner that, while he
cut off their retreat by occupying a bridge,
he could be fighting them in detail.
His plan succeeded admirably. The Afri-„
can Chasseurs and the dragoons ot Fclni
broke the enemy’s cavalry, so that they were
completely disorganized and introduced tho
greatest co.nfuslon among the Infantry.
Trying lo gain ground, the above forces, in
order to recover themselves and return the
charge, proceeded in the direction of the
Bridge of Coxocopau, being ignorant that it
was occupied by two companies of Zouaves,
one hundred of Marquez’s infantry and the
section of artillery. The fugitives, being re
ceived with bullets, were thrown in confusion
in every part of the plain, where they were
perseveringly followed up.
This first result of the combat prevented
the most considerable part of the enemy’s di
vision fromdaring to front tho Fnlnco-Mexi
can forces. The cavalry abandoned the In
fantry, who retreated hastily, in complete
confusion, leaving a large number of killed,
wounded and prisoners, arms and horses.
According to the information given to Col.
Brincourt, the troops which attacked him
amounted to G,OOO men, under the command
of Gen. Echcagaray, the Chief of Comonfort’s
staff, and consisted of 12 battalions of inCm
ry, a battery of rilled artillery, a buttery of
mountain artillery and 12 squadrons under
the command of Carvajal, Aureliano, Rivera
and Forfirio Garcia de Leon. The Latter was
killed by M. Jorka, a Moldavo-VTallachian
Gen. Echegaray had left the town of Huejor
ingo, taking, imprudently, a cross-road, along
which carriages could not pass. This delayed
the passage of his artillery, and explains the
concentration of bis infantry at the foot of
the hills of Tiaognis, whilst his cavalry, full
of confidence, advanced to the danger.
The behavior of Col. Ortoz de la Pena was
so brilliant that Gen. Forey has decorated this
valiant commander with the crdSS of the
Legion of Honor,
Sax* Qekonimo, April 15,1563.
To the Minister at War *.
Gen. Echeagaray sends me word from San
Buenaventura, dated to day at 5, a, m., as fol
lows :
Complying "with the orders that yon were
leased to communicate to me, I proceeded,
he day before yesterday, in the direction of
Atlixco, with the object of attacking the
enemy that were proceedingfromColulo to the
former place, and to recover it and take from
the enemy the provisions that they were
carrying, il possible. Tcstcrday, at noon, the
enemy'was* observed in the plain situated
between Atlixco and the declivity of S in Juan
Tlangnlsroanalco, and a fight took place be
tween our cavalry and a part of the infantry
with the enemy's force, composed of artillery,
cavalry and infantry. In the beginning the
enemy succeeded in obtaining some advan
tage over onr cavalry, on which account I
ordered the battalion of infantry sent
to their support to fall back to the
position which I had previously selected
to give or resist an engagement. Then the
enemy formed an infantry column, advanced
upon our position as far as the foot of the de
clivity of Tianguiamaualco, opening upon ns
a fire of artillery.
This was not answered for half an hour,
with the hope that they would advance within
musket range; but not having done so, their
fire was answered by our artillery, and imme
diately thev retreated to AtUxco.
The result of the combat was that we re
main masters of the field, there having fallen
into our power about 500 head of cattle,
mules and horses, about 300 sheep, about 30
Arabian horses and several arms.
Such a result could not be obtained, as was
natural, without some misfortunes, of which
I will inform you when I receive the accounts
of the commanders of the forces that fought
on that day.
In virtue of the instructions that you were
pleased to give me, I returned last night to
this place, where I arrived at 10 o'clock.
Liberty and reform.
Miguel Maria Echeagahau.
San Buenaventura, April 15,1563—0 a. m,
{From the N. Y. Times. 15th.]
The following letter is from a very high au
thority at Vera Craz:
V era Cruz, May 1, 1563.
Wc have news from Pcnbla as late as the
21st of April. The accounts are of great in
terest and importance. Briefly slated, the sit
uation is as follows;
On the 32th of March the French arrived
before the City of Peubla, with about 20,000
efiective men. On the 17th they attacked the
“Plaznela de San Javier,” and after a severe
bombardment, which lasted several days, they
succeeded in breaching, entering and occupy
ing two blocks or squares. After three days
severe lightingthe Mexicans succeeded in de
stroying these blocks, driving the French
completely from the city.
On the 12th of April the French made a sec
ond attack on the “ Plazueladel Carmen,” and
alter forty hours continuous fighting, during
which the French were three several times
driven back, they retired to the “Cerro de
San Juan,” leaving a large number of pris on
ers in the hands of the Mexicans, including
one company of Zouaves entire.
The condition fit affairs at Puebla, on the
21st of April, stands thus:
Forey finds himself weakened nearly one
third ol the force that he arrived before the
city with. He has a very short supply of am
munition, and has sent to Cordova, Orizaba
and Vera Cruz for all the disposable force
that can be sent him, including all colors.
During the last engagement.Gen. Llave was
wounded, and Gen. Robledo lost an arm.
The Mexicans have done nobly; they have
fought splendidly, and have surprised even
their warmest friends.
No one supposed they would bold oat so
long, or fight so desperately. Now they have
taken the offensive, and their plan of opera
tions is to attack the French oatsidc the
C Jomonfort, whose forces now amount to
upward oi 20,000 men, will make the attack,
or it has been made crc this.
Tlic French feci these last defeats terribly;
up one U allowed to speak a word ol it hjre.
