"WEDNESDAY, iIAY 27 18G3.
VICKSBURG.
Vicksburg is not ours. It Trill not be
j?afc to predicate tlic contrary, on any ad
vices vet received. Past experience in the
matter of war news should have warned
the public, both in and out of newspaper
Offices, of the extreme precariousncss of
advances of jubilation made in anticipa-
Zion of official dispatches. Set it dorm
as a fact that no class of men
jn community will be more eager
lo spread good news than the constituted
authorities of this nation. The President
would make all haste lo .spread broadcast
Ihe earliest intimation of the completed
•fact of victory. Our Generals are human
jis well as military, and the powers of
Etcam and telegraph combined, would all
Eetoo slow channels for them to transmit
t/lad tidings of what their good swords have
V on, at the earliest moment the winning is
achieved.
At the East, lessjudicious use seems to
Have been made, than at the West, of the
advices already received, for New York
clailics of Monday inform their readers, in
Staring capitals, that “ Vicksburg is ours.”
Elsewhere there seems to have been abund
ant exultation and rejoicing at the rumor,
find the cloud that carried the bow
Of promise for the loyal North,
Scorns to have shrouded the rebel
capital in an atmosphere of inkiest hue.
Our Washington reporter makes the sub
ject of a special dispatch the solemn
clirges played by the Richmond press
over the fall of Vicksburg. They appa
rently give it up, and, with it, all of glo
rious sequence that the most enthusiastic
Royalist could claim. 'But both loyal
cicmcnElralion, and rebel lamentation, arc
r.rcmature. Heaven cend they may but
J'.rove prophetic.
But what is the situation? Simply
Has, and obviously its first aspect cuts off
Sill the rebel dispatches from Vicksburg as
most unreliable. Their communications
are totally cut off, and the city itself is
Surrounded by our army. They certainly
can know far less than we do of what is
going on. At present writing (12:30 a. m.)
the situation seems to be that up to Friday
the latest period to which our news from
Con. Grant’s army isbroughtdown,he had
Steadily won every point and was in the
immediate rear of the rebels, having carried
a portion of their outer works. Porter was
playing upon the city from the river, and
a land artillery duel was in progress. But
Uic enemy were yet numerous and strong.
sThc reducli on of their position must be in
cue of two ways, by edge or assault.
If Gen. Grant felt that there was no dan
ger that his rear would be assailed by Gen.
Jo. Johnston, he would undoubtedly de
cide to content himself with a linn front
Against all sorties of the enemy, and rely
on the slower process of waiting until the
rebels fell into his hands hy voluntary
Surrender, a mere question of time. By
this means he would save his army and
rvoid the fierce slaughter inevitable to an
cssault But this last dread alternative
he would not postpone beyond the point
When he should be assured that the rebel
movements in the rear threatened and en
dangered his position.
That there was no news last night, is due
lo the non-arrival of a boat, and the failure
of the telegraph line to Memphis, but what
we have written of the situation will apply
lo past delay and even to several days
more of donht, and suspense. It does not
of necessity mean disaster, or the failure of
Ccn. Grant’s investment of Vicksburg.
j\nd yet it is not wise to overlook the
grave obstacles that still stretched before
him when with his noble army, flushed
With successive victories in his twenty
Coys of marvellous campaigning, lie
drew up Lis soldiers within the enemy's
first line of works defending Tictshurg.
The war should have learned us long ago
lo be ready to hear of disappointments,
tv state of preparation that nowise unfits
one for rejoicing at happily finished re
sults. There is much freshly accomplish
ed in the Southwest that is already gar
tered among the victories of the war. Let
iis hope and believe the cap sheaf is ere
this fully harvested. But let ns wait to
Jjuow it beyond doubt or peradventure.
THE NEWS,
The news come to hand, and looked for
from Gen. Grant, engrosses everything else.
Nevertheless, other news of this issue is
interesting and important.
The enemy before Rosecrans have been
S einforced by the advent of Yallandigham
t-mong them.
The question of substitutes interests
Fverybody, for the draft is near. Two
hundred thousand loyal white men at least
arc provided with substitutes, in the shape
t>f that number ot black men speedily to
l)c pul into the field. Any Copperheads
or squeamish fellows that object to having
a nigger do their fighting for them, will do
well to leave their names with the enroll
ment officers and get the matter set
Straight
Dayton, Ohio, the home of Yallandig
ham, still manifests.symptoms that declare
that the infamous traitor was pulled up
ivnd thrown over the fence none too soon.
The military arm is strong enough to bring

discretion, if not lo better views.

Doleful Dumps of Rebel Editors.
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
Washington, May 26.18G5.
The Richmond TVAij of Saturday, 23d, con
tains the following editorial: u Wc suppose
Vicksburg has fallen, the army inside the for
tifications captured, or destroyed, Port Hud
son reduced, or abandoned, the Mississippi,
In its whole length, controlled by the enemy,
and the Confederacy temporarily, or even
for the remainder of the war, cut in twain.
We suppose, farther, that the really great
success of our foe, and the cruel disaster to
ourselves, is attended with consequences as
certain as they arc deplorable.
The increased enthusiasm at the
North; the triumphant vindication of
the tyranny at Washington; the con
scription enforced even in Ihe Northwest,
without opposition; perhaps the revival of
the spirit of volunteering, Peace Parties
crushed forever; men and money to endless
sums obtained; and Europe busy with its
own troubles, ©rawed into permanent silence.
TVe suppose all this, for it becomes us now to
consider the worst possible aspect of the
news.
What then? Our duty will then be pre
cisely what It has always been—to maintain
the cause unflinchingly, and exhibit a spirit
more indomitable and consistent thin that of
the enemy. Nothing is to he gained by de
spondency. All that has been lost may be re
gained by fortune and perseverance. It wIU
te worse than useless to reproach the Gov
ernment, however guilty it may be, for the
appointment of inexperienced Generals, or
to repine over the precious blood that has
been wasted by mismanagement of the forces
entrusted to incompetent commanders.
Great victory would have approved the
apparent sagacity of an appointment which has
brought us so great trouble, and great defeats
should silence clamor which cannot at all
undo an event of past unwisdom In our
rulers. It must be borne as manfully, as the
evils inflicted by the enemy. The bitterness of
onr hearts, wliich breeds despondency and
disaffection, wins no triumph, repairs no dis
asters, sustains no cause.
Greatness of soul accepts nil the calami
ties of war in the spirit of defiance, and rises
superior to every misfortune. If we cannot
bear defeat as well as the Yankees, we are un
worthy to be free. Until some one of our
large aimics has been beaten as often and as
severely us the Yankee army of the Potomac,
v:c cannot say our courage has been folly
tested, or our ability to conquer peace and
independence fairly established.
“ Should Pembertontand his whole army
be captured, there will still bo left iu the
Southwest the material for :v very large army
under Johnston. Pemberton’s men will soon
bo roturqed to duty by cxcliange, the balance
being now greatly In ourlUvor. Besides
Johnston’s army there wIU be others as largo
or larger under Lee, Beauregard and Bragg.
The combined forces of Kirby Smith, Hagra
dcr and Price make an army nearly equal
to either of the above.”
So long as these great leaders and great
aimics arc lell lous, so long as ctcn one of
them remains uucrushed, our cause Is safe.
Serious disasters have heretofore heralded
important reforms, decided improvements in
the organization of our forces, and the
revival of energy and accession of strength la
ail the material of war, followed by a sncccs
r-ion ot brilliant victories. The tall of Donel-
son, Memphis, and New Orleans, preluded the
fumraer of heavier achievements, in which
ilu* enemy was nearly everywhere dashed
l ack to his own soil.
Scorning to imitate the Yankee by under
rating the consequences of the hill of Vicks
burg, we may yet, with reason, count upon
compensation in the approaching campaign.
The loss of Vicksburg, if It have no other
good cflectj'wUlsccnrcusinthcfuturcagainst
»hc appointment of entirely inexperienced
Generals. Of this we may he perfectly sure.
Moreover, it will add to the strength of our
armies. This is a necessity.
The North stimulated by this success will
hurl Its myriads upon ns and wc must meet
them with every available man. Within two
tears we have withstood 1,400,000 vandals.
What shall hinder ns from withstanding as
many more during the year to come ? Noth
ingbntthcwantof the manhood which the
South has never yet failed to show. Wc have
veterans commanded by great Generals.
The enemy have recruits commanded by Gen
erals interior to our own. Let them come on.
We will sec whose heart is stoutest, let war
last as longas It may.”
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.!
Washington, May 20.1803.
“ The Richmond Examiner of the 23d says:
Within the next fortnight the campaign of
I£C3 will he pretty well decided, and the most
important movements of this war will proba
bly betandc in that time.
If the Confederate standard is again victori
ous, as may be hoped with much solid reason,
although mere victory will not end the war,
it will destroy the efficiency of the enemy’s
army for ihe rest of this year.”
“H we gain all that is now fairly possible,
an entirely new character will be given to the
luture operations which will relieve the coun
try of half the suffering it has hitherto endur
ed. Now Is the noble day, thefortnnatc hour
for the Confederacy at this time, If ever. Let
every man be at his post.”
TLc RUl'iiiond J'ravdncr, of Ibc 23d, con
tains a price list of the Board of Commission
ers, appointed under an act ot the rebel Con
gress, to estimate the prices to be paid during
the next two months for articles impressed
into the use of the rebel army, among which
are the following:
"Wheat per bushel, $4.50.
Com per bushel, .$4.00.
Oats per bushel, $2.00.
Potatoes per bushel, $5.00.
Salt per bushel, $5.00.
Flour per barrel, $22.50.
Bacon, salt pork and lard, SI.OO per pound.
Tallow candles per poand, $1.30.
Brown sugar per pound, SI.OO.
Coffee, $3.00 per lb.; tea, $lO per lb.;
leather, $3.00 per lb.; hay, SSO per ton; pig
iron, S3SO per ton; two-horse team and dri
ver, per day, $10; four-horse team, sl3; sis- ]
horse team, $10; laborers, found, sl2 per day,
and S4O per month, and one-half these rates
If found by the army.
It must be recollected that individuals all
have to pay double and triple these rates.
An act forbids officers seizing all the people
have, as it would cause starvation.
New Toiik, May 25.—According to persons
just arrived from Richmond a report was
current in that city, on Saturday, that Vicks

A reliable gentleman who has come through
flora Manchester, brings intelligence of rebel
movements which is of great interest and im

he met Large bodies of rebel cavalry going
southward, and fully confirms cur previous
advices with regard to troops having gone

Breckinridge has fallen back from his ad

satisfaction of his troops, who came near mu
tinying, and were only pacified by a speech
from Brcckjnridgc himself, who told them
they were going to Mississippi fora short
time to clean out Grant, and would then Im
mediately return to Tennessee.
There arc no rebel troops anywhere be
tween Murfreesboro and Manchester.
The rebel authorities confidently aver that
Grant has been beaten, but give neither time,
j'lorc, nor circumstances.
THE N. T. EVENING POST'S DISPATCH.
New York, May ‘-o. — The Evening ibsi’«
Washington special dispatch of to-day says:
It is understood that the Government has re
ceived an ofiicud dispatch from Gen. Grant
dated on Friday, the 22d inst., which con
firms all previous accounts of Iho success of
our troops, and speaks ot the capture of
Vicksburg as certain.
It is also reported here to-daythat the rebel
pickets on tbe Rappahannock yesterday ad
mitted that Vicksburg had been captured.
Washington, Mav 26. —It is understood
that a dispatch received to-day states that
another line of defences has been discovered
in the rear of Vicksburg, which it would be
necessary to take by storm.
New York, May 26.—The Herald'a Wash
ington special says;
It is believed that Grant has nothing to fear
from a concentration of any considerable
force in his rear. The only force available for
' that purpose arc 6,000 under Johnston, the
small number driven away from Ppmberton
under Loring, and one or two brigades from
.Fort Hudson, not more than 15,000 men at
the outside.
Cairo, May 20.— Private dispatches have
passed through here to-day from officers In
Grant’s army, dated “ May S4, near Vicks
burg.” From this we draw the inference that
the citv has not yet capitulated.
Nothing official or from correspondents has
been received. The reason is, all the boats
are busy at Vicksburg, carrying supplies to
the army, receiving the sick, exhausted and
wounded.
It is also understood that one or two bn
gadeshave gone up the Yazoo river.
This silence is not interpreted here to mean
reverse or disaster. Several days may elapse

mortar and gunboats in front of Vicksburg
were hard at work.

CHICAGO, WEDNESDAY, MAY 27, 1863.
FROM DAYTON.
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.}
Dattox, OnnvMay 20th, 1363.
As one of the officers at this point, Scrgt.
Sroygert,-was passing through Bearer Creek
township, Green county, to-day, he was fired
at three times from uni-ecn villains, who
secreted themselves In the woods. The ser
geant, fortunately, was n«£ hurt, and upon
his arrival here reported the case to the Pro
vost Marshal Major Keith, who dispatched a
squad of cavalry to bring the'perpetrators to
justice, with orders that if failing to meet
with the blood-thirsty savages, they
should arrest and bring to town, several of
the most notorious sympathizers in the town
ship.
After some considerable lime spent in get
tirg Information in the neighborhood indi
cated, they got upon the track of one or-two
suspicious characters, and arrested during the
night, between ten and three o’clock, some
tlx prominent K. G. C.’s, whose known
identity with the Southern Confederacy has
become proverbial in- that locality. They
were lodged in jail at an early hour this
morning. There waa no resistance. They
protest against having any knowledge ol tbe
matter. The prompt action of Major Keith
gains for him the sympathy of all Union men.
The Major is determined to hold the prisoners
until such time as the guilty parties are deliv
ered up, unless ordered otherwise by higher
authority.
A soldier cC tfap Jfth Kentucky was also
arrested, for di~f#4jstcLfal conduct towards
the efiker in command. TUo prisoners were
all mounted wlien brought in, and their
horses are now at the government stable.
Lieut. McLauc, commanding the forces at
Dayton, commanded the expedition.
At an early hour last night the appearance
of another outbreak became manifest-in the
city. The business bouses were all closed up,
and general excitement prevailed. The mili
tary, however, were prepared forthe occasion,
and by the energy displayed by the command
ing officer, the storm was quieted.
There was unbounded joy manifested last
evening upon the receipt of the report of the
capture of Vicksburg. The soldiers fired
about one hundred shots on the public land
ing. The boys of the different foundries
brought out their anvils, and fired them with
a vengeance. In fact, every loyal heart was
filled with joy, and every face gave evidence
of. gratitude.
Niue of the Vallandlgliam sympathizers
who were arrested and sent to Cincinnati
some two weeks since, were released yester
day by Gen. Burnside, upon swearing a new
allegiance to the Federal Government. They
repent the evil of their ways, and declare to
be good Union men in the future. They have
learned a lesson.

Joseph Demara, son of the interpreter at
Fort Abercrombie, arrived at that post on the
17th direct from Devil’s Lake, where he saw
Little Crow, the lender of the hostile Indians.
Over 000 lodges were gathered there. Some
of the Indians are for peace. Standing Buf
falo and Sweet Corn, two prominent chiefs,
arc trying to bring about peace, and advise
the Yanktons, who are the strongest branch
of the hostile Sioux, not to fight. Standing
Buffalo says if he thought the President
would not harm him he would surrender. He
is going to Fort Geary to have Gov. Dallas
write this to the President. Little Crow is
still for war. His band has plenty of food
and ammunition. They intend to conceal
themselves until the expedition passes, and
then approach the settlements In the rear.
Tbe Indians think all who gave themselves
up last fall were killed. They have four
white captives, two of whom are girls. Lit
tle Crow and his party of warriors visited the
Rce Indians, to induce them to join in the
war. The result was a fight, and eight of
Little Crow’s band were killed. This is the
latest and most authentic news that has been
received from the hostile Indians, and con
firms previous reports of dissention among
themselves. The last of the Winnebagoes
reached the fort to-night, on their way to
Fort Randall.

SostxnsET, Ky., 3lay 23,1563.
Yesterday morning at 0 o’clock, infonna
uiatiou was received that the rebels had
crossed the river at Ilartaford, captured Capt.
Dlllion’s Ist Kentucky cavalry, and the en
tire picket guard, and were marching on to
wards MiU Springs, to gobble Maj. Owens
and the pickets stationed there.
Col. Kanby, with detachments of the 24tb

was dispatched to Washington Creek. Capt.

Ohio, then at Stcgal’s Ferry, marched in the
direction of Ilartsford, and drove the rebels
before him, back across the river, capturing
one Lieutenant, Sergeant, and five privates.
Major Owens came up as the rebels were
crossing, and fired on them, wounding severoL
The account reads thus : Wolford’s men lost
nine. The rebels captured seven and several
wounded. The rebel force was about SOD;
the number of the 45th Ohio engaged in rout
ing them was about forty. Wolford’s men
were surprised in fact. The picket courtesies
so long indulged In, have induced an inex

been stopped and the pickets arc indulging in
a vigorous firing at each other all day.
Col. Riley of the 114 th was sent in com

VALLANDiGHAM SENT HOME.
INTERESTING DETAILS OF
THE SHIPMENT.
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
Mcwbeesboro, May 26,1563.
On Sunday night st a little past 10 o’clock,
Clement L. Vallandigham arrived at this place,
on an extra train of cars from Nashville, in
charge of Copt. Murray, of the ISth regular
infantry, with a small squad of men. Imme
diately on his arrival, he was put into a small
open spring wagon and taken to the office of
Major Wiles, Provost Marshal. Gen. Rose
crans and a few others called on him hero,
and three or four hours were spent in conver
sation. An order had been placed in the
hands of Major Wiles to take the pris
oner in charge and convey him to the
house of a Colonel Winston, living near
our outposts on the ShelbyviUe road, to keep
him there until morning and then deliver him
under a flag of truce into the hands of the
‘ rebel authorities. It was 3 o’clock la the
morning before Vallandigham- was started on
his journey. He rode in the same wagon that
brought him him up from the depot. Col.
McKibben, senior aid to the General Com
manding; Lieut. Col. Ducat, Inspector Gen
eral of the Department; Major [Wiles, Pro
vost Marshal General; Capt. Goodwin, 37th
Indiana, Assistant Provost Marshal General;
Capt. Doolittle, dth regular cavalry, and
Lieut. Kelly, commanding two companies of
cavalry, composing the [GcncraFs escort, ac
companied the prisoner.
The first signs of daylight were appearing
in the East, when the cavalcade stopped at
the house to wait for the full moruiug. Soon
after, we were again on the way ; and just as
the sun arose we reached our extreme out
pos's, and discovered rebel videites half a
mile ahead on the turnpike. Major Wiles and
Col. McKibhcn immediately started forward
with a flag of trued, and were soon in commu
nication with the rebel authorities. The lat
ter having expressed a willingness to receive
Mr. Vallandlgliam, the two officers return
ed. Major Wiles and Capt. Goodwin accom
panied the prisoner within the rebel lines, and
delivered him into their hands. Mr. VJlan
digbam made the following declaration:
I am a citizen of Ohio, and of the United States.
I am hereby force, against my will. 1 therefore
ECirerdorroyeelf to you as a prisoner of war.
The bearing of Vallandigham throughout
the whole affair was modest, sensible and dig
nified. In a conversation with yonr corres
pondent, he candidly admitted that the deal
ings of the Government with himself were
necessary and justifiable. If the Union was to
be restored by war, be admitted that in that
case the Government would be obliged to use
all the physical force of the loyal States, and
could tolerate no opposition. This, however,
he declared would be at the expense of the
fitc principles of our Constitution; whereas,
he thought that by the adoption of his plan,
not only might his principles be conserved,
but the union of States ultimately restored.
New York, May 20—The New York 7W6-
Murfreesboro dispatch says: Vnllaiulig
ham declared himself loyal to the United
States. The correspondent deems it proba
ble that he assumed that the enemy would
refuse to receive him. He was given to un
derstand by Gen. Koeecrans that should he
he arrange to return to our lines, the Presi
dent’s orders to carry the original sentence
into effect would be executed.
The TiorWfl Washington dispatch says:
The Richmond Dispatch of the 23d puts no
faith in the speakers at the Vallandigham
meeting in New Tork. It says: Governors
Seymour and Hunt arc no better than Stun
ner and Chase—may not be eo good—not even,
as good as Burnside. Tho Enquirer has no
pyiupalhy with VaJcmdlgham. and says he
ought to*be sent at once beyond our lines.”

The very latest reliable news from the rebel
auny is in my possession. Forrest has been
made a Major General,’ and has gone to Mis
sissippi with the rebel cavalry force formerly
commanded by Van Dorn.
The greater part of Wheeler’s force has
gone to Columbia, to supply the place thus
made vacant.
Morgan holds the line of Caney Ford and
Cumberland river. The rebel force at Tulla-
homa and vicinity, consists of 45,000 Infantry
and 10,000 cavalry, provided no forces have
gone thence since day before yesterday. These
are all effective men, such as could at any
time be taken into the field. It is pretty defi
nitely ascertained that there Is now little or
no rebel force this side of Duck river.
The movement commenced by Breckinridge
las evidently become general, and Polk,
dong the Shelbyville road, as well as Hardee,
till further to our right, have withdrawn
their forces. You may consider It about cer
tain that we shall have no serious fighting this
side of Tullahoma. At the latter point they
have two weeks’ supplies.
At Bridgeport they have a regiment. The
strongly fortified work which was done by
negroes, who are now at Chattanooga with
the engineers, have been engaged for months
in planning works at Chattanooga, but as yet
very little work has been done on them.
The Chattanooga Railroad has 107 cars and 10
locomotives, constituting its entire rolling
stock.
The rebel reinforcements from all parts of
the Sonth to Vicksburg, amounted to aboul
CO,OOO men. There are bnt few troops In East
Tennessee. Large numbers of refugees are
in the mountains, and on Thursday lost a
fight occurred at Altamont between these
refugees and a confederate force sent against
them, in which the latter were repulsed with
considerable loss.
Bragg's army is in splendid condition, and
will be drawn on no further for reinforce
ments to other points. At Chattanooga the
rebels say that at Haines' Bluff, Gen. Loring
cut his way through our army, and escaped.
It is finally settled that Gen. Morgan is to
command the post at Nashville, and General
Granger’s forces are in the field near that city.
