TUB NEWS.
The situation at Yicksbuig remains with
out reported change. The rebel repulse at
Millikcn's Bend was signal The blacks
taught their masters that they could tight,
tmd the black flag raised by the former in
the carnage that followed, lent its signifi
cance to the black faces that gayc and
fought no quarter.
We publish elsewhere, in foil, as we
have before given in abstract, the admira
ble letter of President Lincoln on "Arbi
traiy Arrests.” The President’s vindica
tion of the right to arrest rebel sympathiz
ers, in every part of the countty, is most
triumphant Bis elucidation of the con
stitutional sanction of such right in limes
like the present hns never been surpassed
in clearness and force. The people will
everywhere road it
the kew phase of the war.
All other topics of interest and discus
sion were, yesterday, submerged in the
absorbing theme, the new aspects of the
war in the East They are, indeed, suffi
ciently alarming.' The excitement of # the
broad region exposed to the rebel raid is
intense and on the increase. The anxiety
of the entire country over the present real
•danger of our National Capital, is undis
guised and for from baseless. The Gov
ernment does not this tunc seek to with
hold the fact from the people. The pro
clamations of the President and of the
Governors of the loyal States exposed, are
carrying everywhere an official note of
slam and summons for instant aid. There
3s a rallying in the Keystone State from
XakeErieto the Delaware. There is no
thought now for stores, farms, mines, horse
contracts or shoddy contracts, or other
pursuits of industry indigenous to her soil
There is a call for every man to defend the
State, to save his home, to defend her
Capital, or, if Harrisburg must
fall, to take good heed that not
one of the venturesome rebel freebooters
returns unscathed, to tell the story. In aid
of Pennsylvania her aster adjoining
States are arousing. New York is sending
her thousands now already under way.
Ohio is zealously collecting her quota.
Alary land is gathering her loyalists* to be
prepared for that stern hour of possible
trial when a reverse shall befall Unionism*
on her soil, and the fire break out anew in
the smouldering tinder of her home rebel
element
These are hut half the aspects. This is
the result produced by the heavy cavalry
column of the rebels that have been rapidly
penetrating into the very heart of Penn
sylvania. They menace her chief eldest
Pittsburg, Harrisburg, the great artery of
travel that connects them, even Philadel
phia herself, arc all endangered, and
they arc all arming. ' But the
rebel leader who has thus thrown
out these daring cohorts, has an ultimate
object in view that means more than the
simple burning of Pennsylvania bams, and
the harrowing of quiet Pennsylvania house
holds. He has advanced his whole army,
and is again being' opposed at
the now thrice drenched Held of j
Bull Bun, the prize being as of l
c>ld—Wasliington. The great raid north
ward is designed as a diversion, and a cut
ting oi lines of communication between
the Federal Capital and the points whence
puccor must come. The transportation of
troops from Philadelphia southward, or
from the ‘West through Pennsylvania, is,
perhaps, by this time at an end, and Wash
ington must be left to its own present re
sources, its strong system of defenses, and
our army under Hooter, whose hour of
•weakness the rebels have studied perhaps
tetter than our. own people. Yet we be
lieve it is ready for stout and stem wort,
nnd as we trust, victory. * But on the bat
tle, reported already begun, hang certainly
Very grave issues.
In tins brief review of the present as
pects of the situation, we .have desired
Strictly to follow our dispatches, and to
Beep within them. We have called it the
mew phase of the strife. It has
come upon us suddenly in this
the third campaign of the war.
The summer of 1862 finds the, rebels
< again on the Upper Potomac, and the ter-
J *or at their near approach spreading
ymnng the homes of the Susquehanna
valley. It is humiliating. But out of
darkest hour will be bom, we believe,
i fresh and brighter aspect for this
war. It will bring home to our
Northern people the consciousness that
this is a war indeed, that it is our own
homes, onr own liberties, our own people
whose interests are embarked in this
struggle. It will destroy the evil of
remoteness so diligently cultivated in
our communities. Blaring court houses
mnd court officers flying with
•their records, will be unlikely to suggest
■grand juries and civil processes as the best
Agents for the stay of the rebellion. The
duty of defense is brought home to the
people. The call to save the country from
Its enemies has a startling nearness.
The rebels are penetrating a region of
Pennsylvania suspected of bring more
than lukewarm in this war. The. vision
may be salutary that gives to Northern ad
mirers of the South the rebel rough riders
ns the reality, in place of the graceful ideal
cavaliers they have worshipped from afar.
H*he Copperhead dement of Pennsylvania
will find it their hour of trial- It will be
mow time to see whether the rebels expect
actual aid from them, whether actual aid
will be tendered. We listen lor the open
ing of the fire-in-the-rear, now that the
tojy dement ham received so huge a rein
forcement.
It is certain what will be the fate of men
who preach the cause of the rebels in com
munities, freshly sore from rebel visitation.
tTbe virion of the wide, fair region of Penn
sylvania ravaged and desolated by these
troopers, will rise as a virion—speedy

sozneihSng must be done to make the only
trade ofour people war, until the rebellion
is dead. Host the only effective recruiting
parties for the loyal North be mustered in
rebel lines and 'be led by rebel leaders ?
Better so, far better, than that we be not
fully aroused to our danger as a nation.
There is another aspect of the case',
which must not be forgotten. This start
ling phase of the campaign befalls the
North at a time when ina 11 our States the
Copperhead dement is clamoring as loudly
as it dares for peace, a peace based on
servility to the South, and an under
lying sympathy for the public enemy.
An assembly of this dass in Ohio
recently nominated the infamous Yallau
digham. A gathering of the same Mud
disgraces, to*day, the Capital of Illinois.
The Copperheads of Pennsylvania were to
meet at Harrisburg yesterday, with like in
dent, but they do not like to face the
Southern delegation of their friends that
is hearing that way. In this fresh inso
lence of the rebels, and their flush
of present success, • what Peace
man believes that the Confederates would
accept terms of settlement even he. would
not shrink from with horror. It is nojt
the hour to talk of peace. The danger of
the country may presently be Imminent
enough to awaken the most inert.
• There is but one duty for Government
and people at this time, and it cannot be
too soon assumed. We must borrow from
our enemies an earnestness of purpose that
has been their best helper, an intensity of
zeal without which the nation cannot he
saved. All aids to the Government in its
struggle must be summoned. All hin
drances must be removed. It must be made
dangerous to be an enemy of the Govern
ment in Chicago or in Springfield, as in
Virginia or "Mississippi. The Government
must reach and strike down all its enemies
North as well as South, or if the man and
the hour be not yet arrived in which this
shall be realized, we shall come to it
through a dreary and bitter experience of
disasters of which the past is but a feeble
presage, the present but a mild premonition.

The excitement ail along the line of the
Pennsylvania Railroad is increasing. The
Governor has Issued a proclamation calling

of copies of thcproclamation at all post offices
and public places. The call is responded to
■with much enthusiasm—the country for miles

According to the latest accounts received, it
appears that Harrisburg has not yetfidlen into
the hands of the rebels, notwithstanding the
report to the contrary, neither is it confirmed
that the Railroad track in. that vicinity has
been tom up.
Pittsburg was in a state of the most intense
excitement, business being suspended, and
the citizens joining in the preparations for de
fense. It was reported in that city that Har*
.risbnrg was burning, having been fired by the
rebels, but this also lacks confirmation.
The three o’clock cars from Philadelphia
was delayed some hoars by the breaking down
of a freight train.
Habbisbubg, Jnnc 10—1 p. m.—The
operator at London, Franklin county,
reports that our pickets captured a rebel, who
eays the enemy is in full force in the Cumber
land Talley.
The Bedford operator reports 6,000 rebel
cavalry in Cumberland. „ There are no XJnisn
ti oops there. The citizens are flying.

Irom high authority that a battle has been
progressing to-day on the old Ball Ban battle
ground, between Lee and Hooker, the latter
doing good service.
The train from Baltimore, on Monday, went
only to EUicott 21111s. The rebels are also
reported in force at Point of Bocks.
THE, CONDITION AT HARRISBURG.
The hanks have removed to Philadelphia.
The Democratic Convention will not assem
ble here to-morrow. A number of the wes
tern delegates refused to come farther than
Altoona, and returned home. Hundreds of
persons have arrived from the south side of
the river, bringing in all tbeir horses, cattle
and other valuables. Working parties are en
gaged in preparing the works and defenses on
the opposite side of the river. A good re
sistance could be made, if troops were here
to man the guns. Government officials es
j>ect the arrival of the rebels to-night or to
morrow.
It they reach here so.soon, there will he
little prospect of a successful defense; but If
delayed, thousands will reach here within
twenty-four hours, as the country 1* thor
oughly aroused.
At a meeting last evening, Gen. Cameron
blamed the Government for not sending men
to aid in the defense of the Capital, when
Pennsylvania had so.liberally contributed
men and money for carrying on the war. He
said that while he had every confidence in the
President and the commander of the depart
ment, such men as McClellan or Franklin,
whose leadership the people had every confi
dence in, would rally to their standard eveiy
loyal mm. He called upon the Government
to send for Gen. McClellan, to take charge of
the militia of the State. Every train for the
east Is packed with refugees and goods be
longing to merchants.
HannisncßC, Pa., June 16—1 a, m.—Every
thing is gloomy here. The indications arc
that the rebels will be in sight of here by to
morrow. In the absence of troops to stop
the advance of the rebels, the destruction of
all the bridges on the Susquehanna is inevi
table.
As &£t os troops reach here they are scut
to the differentfords on the river, where works
arc befog constructed.
The attempts to get troops from 'Washing
ton have failed, .and all the energies of the
State mnst be directed towards arresting the
progress of the rebels. There is no hope of
saving the country south of the Susquehanna.
Philadelphia, June 16.—The Mayor has
issued a proclamation, in view of the urgent
necessity of instant action, to protect the
Capital, urging the closing of stores, and cit
izens to connect themselves immediately with

ments are getting under arms at the city
armories. Tho bells were rung at midnight
in Brooklyn, colling out minn’e men, and the
regiments of that city assembled at 8 o’clock
this morning. A large number leave for
Philadelphia this morning.
New York, Juno 16.—The Baltimore Amer
ican, of Monday, says;
The most reliable information wc have
been able to obtain, Is to the following effect:
An attack was made on Saturday morning
r*n a small force ot onr men at Berrwille,
Ya., under Gen. Mcßcynolds, of which the
Ist Maryland battery formed a part. They
fell hack before superior numbers, and joined
Gen. Milroy at Winchester, after a sharp en
gagement, of which the resalts are unknown.
At the same time Winchester was attacked la
front from the South, by a force reported to
be under the command of Ewell, the suc
cessor of Stonewall Jackson. The troops
that made the attack at Berryville are report
ed to bo under command of Gen. Trimble.
A third force, after this encounter, are said
to have captured a detachment of onr men at
Bunker Bill, and then moved on to Martins
burg. At 4p. m. yesterday they demanded
the surrender of Martinsbuxg, giving forty
five minutes for the women and children to
leave town. Gen. Tyler, who commanded at
Martinsburg, refused to surrender, and an
artillery fight ensued. At 7 1-4 o’clock last
night the wires were broken between Har
per’s Ferry and Martinsburg, and what occur
red after that Is not known.
A battle was also in progress at Winchester
yesterday. Results unknown.
Gen. Milroy repulsed Ewell on Saturday,
and said he could hold out until reinforce
ments reached him. If unable to sustain his
position, he would fall back on the line to
Romney, os the Harper’s Ferry and Martins
bnrg roods are held by the enemy.
The estimates of the rebel force in the val
ley arc so wide apart, that they form no relia
ble data for any conclnsion.
No damage was done to the Baltimore and
Ohio road, as far as known. No cars or loco
motives on the line are exposed to capture.
Orders were sent to exposed fronts yesterday,
and no less than seventy locomotives and
some 1,200 cars were brought to Baltimore in
safety. As a precautionary measure, no
trains will be run beyond Harper's Ferry for
the present
New Yobk, June 10.—It is ascertained that
Gen. Hooker left the station near Falmouth
on the morning of the 14th, and proceeded
toward Dumfries, where there was a rest for
the night Early on Monday morning, they
proceeded on the road to Fairfax Station,
where they probably arrived on Monday night
Previous to the departure of Gen. Hooker,
ibe Cth army corps, •which lay on both sides
of the river below Fredericksburg, proceeded
northward and reached the vicinity of Dura
files on Sunday night. Bell Plain and Aqula
Creek were evacuated, and all puMic prop
erty has been shipped or otherwise secured.
The effects destroyed 2fcro each as were not
worth removal.
Up to Monday morning our army held the
line of the Rappahannock from Banks’ to
Kelly’s fords, the river being protected by
sufficient troops to hold the enemy at bay,
should they attempt to cross the river below.
On Snnday evening cannonading was heard
in the direction of Thoroughfare Gap. It was
thought to ho an cflort of the rebels to cross
in force.
It is ascertained that the main portion of
the army of the Potomac have retired from
the line of the Rappahannock, a movement
rendered necessary by that of the enemy. All
the wounded and sick—a large number—have
been brought away, and transferred to hospi
tals in the vicinity ol Washington.
The exact whereabouts of Gen. Lee are sup
posed to be near or at Thoroughfare Gap.

MARYLAND CALLED TO ARMS.-
Baltimore, June 16—Gov. Bradford has
issued a proclamation, calling upon tho citi
zens ol Baltimore and people of Maryland, to
rally to defend their soil from invasion. As
there is no organized militia force in the
State, he announces that he will fall back upon
the recent enrollment for the draft, but ho
hopes there is patriotism sufficient among
our people, to raise the forces needed, from
voluntary enlistment. The Governor urges
immediate action.
There is no later news from the Upper Po
tomac. The City Councils were convened at
12 o’clock lost night, and met this morning,
to device ways and means to co-operate with
the Governor ol the State, and Commanding
General of this department, to raise the city’s
portion of the 10,000 men called for to repel
the invasion.
A. VERT DOUBTFUL RUMOR.
New York, June 16.—The Express prints
the following as a letter from Washington:
Gen. Hooker retreated from Falmouth to
Warrcnton Station to intercept Lee, who was
advancing on Washington. Lee passed down
through Thoroughfare Gap, flanking Hooker,
and cut off on entire corps, (name not given)
which is supposed to be captured. Lee is
driving Hooker, the latter retreating to Alex
andria. Hooker bnmed a large portion of his
tents, provisions, &c., at Falmouth. A large
part of MUroy’s division is captured, includ
ing the whole of his regiments at Berryville,
with an .entire battery. Milroy lost all his
cannon, wagons, tents, &c. The remnant of
his force reached Harper’s Ferry in safety.
A BRIGHTER VIEW,
New York, June 16.—Tho Post prints
Washington specials, as follows:
Persons from the front this morning report
all quiet. No sighs of the rebels this side of
Culpepper,- Ourarmyis in a new position,
thoroughly reorganized and fall of confidence.
No-signs of the enemy on the Potomac be

AN ATPEAL.TO PHILADELPHIA.
Habcisbdrq, Jane 16, 1863.
To the People of Philadelphia:
For nearly a week past it has been publicly
known that the rebel forco were about to enter
Pennsylvania on the 12th inst. An urgont call
was made on the people to raise a department
oimy corps for the defense of the State. Tester
day, under the Proclamation of the President, tho
mllitlawas called out. To day a new and pressing
exhortation has been given to furnish men to repel
tiioiuvasloD.
Phlladdphla has not responded, and meanwhile,
tho enemy Is six miles this side of Cbamberaburg,
and advancing rapljUy. Our Capital is threatened,
and wc maybe disgraced by Us fall, while the men
who should he driving tho outlaws from oar soil
arc quibbling about the possible term of service
for six mouths.
It never was intended to keep them beyond the
continuoncc of tho emergency. You all know this
by what happened when tho militia were called
out last autumn. Ton then trusted your Govern
ment and were not deceived* Trust it again, now.
Iwill accept men without reference to the six
months term. If you do not wish to hear tho stig
ma of shrinking from the defense of your State,
come forward atouce, leave yonr places of busi
ness and apply your hearts to the work. Come in
such organizations as you can form.
A. Q. Ctmrnr.
THE POSITION IN TUIGINIA.
ICotrcepon'jcnce of the N. Y. World.]
Washington, Jane 13, 1683.
The question is now settled definitely with
regard to tho intention of Gen. Lee that there
is something important in tho wind Infor
mation from several quarters discloses tho
fact that the great rebel army, which so lately
satisfied Gen. Hooker of the impracticability
of taking Richmond by the Fredericksburg
route, has been largely reinforced, ami mast
at present number upwards of 100,000 men.
Also, that during lids week it Has retired from
its old position along the Rappahannock, and
proceeded to Culpepper Court House, on the
Orange and Alexandria Railroad, Gen. MU*
roy, who occupied Winchester, twenty-two
nixies northwest of Harper’s Ferry, reports that
a force of the enemy numbering about 5,000,
has passed through Thoroughfare Gap, on the
railroad betwecuManai-pas Junction and White
Plains, and that he feared being cat off unless
reinforcements could reach him In a few days.
Another force of about 7,000, infantry and
artillery, has been heard from at Spcrryville,
near tho Blue Ridge, and only a short march
beyond Culpepper. This army crossed the
mountains to I,may, in the Shenandoah valley,
whence it could advance cither northward or
westward at will. 'The raid at PoolesvUle,
Md:, did not amount to anything, and can
not be regarded as indicative of the ap
pearance of a large force in that neighbor
hood. The small party that crossed the Po
tomac from IfCesburg pro bably rejoined the
column which was heard of at Thoroughfare
Gap. These various movements would seem
to prophesy that Lee intends advancing upon
Hooker’s right ilauk, and after delivering bat
tle, to withdraw whatever portion of his
troops he can spare, and may be in a fit con
dition, and send it over the mountains to the
Ohio. A surrey of the map, and a compre
hension of the position of toe armies on both
sides, sugge&ls that tills idea is most likely to
be the one which the rebel chief is operating.
There are no sound reasons for fearing a direct
invasion of Maryland and Pennsylvania under
the circumstances, and there can be no solu
tion to the question, what is Lee attempting?
other than that offered. To cross the Pot >
mac again would be a fool-hardy act, more in
accordance with the tactics of a Burnside than
a Lee, while a sudden demand for admission
into.the dominions of the former would be a
brilliant deed, such as we ought to have learn
ed long since to expect at the hands of the
Confederated leader. Lee can easily spare
forty or fifty thousand men for his west
ern*’tour, without vitiating his chances of
success in ah onslaught against the exposed
portions of Hooker’s lines. Of course, an
anxious cfieri is making to check this adroit
game, which was first fairly understood when
cn. Pleasanton’s command returned from
the great ctpalry fight at Beverly Ford, al
though we have had inklings of it Jor some
time. While hardly any of the stereotyped
fears arc entertained for the safety of the
Capital, there Is still a great deal of
excitement here, and tidings of the
opening of the battle beyond Falmouth arc
momentarily looked for. * Tho enemy oppo
site that point is thought to number less than
12,CC0. The Government is reported to have
notified Gens. Burnside and Eoeccrans of
what may be anticipated in the.event of Gen.
Hooker letting Leegctaway from him, and an
understanding is sold to have been had with
Gen?. Brooks and Couch, and Gov. Curtin, as
to the disposition of the volunteer force now
being raised In Pennsylvania,, for the protec
tion of its borders.
FROM INDIANAPOLIS.
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
Some 500 Copperheads held a meeting in
Montgomery county, on Saturday last, and
passed a resolution declaring that no enroll
ment of the militia of that county should
take place. They appointed a committee,
who waited upon the Commissioner, read him
the resolution, and notified him in person
that in attempting to make the enrollment he
must do so at his peril. The Commissioner
is acquainted with the parties, and they will
be arrested Immediately by the United States
Marshal,
An • fficcr, who has just arrived here from
Libby Prison, at‘Richmond, says U is under
stood there that Col. Straight and his officers
are to be handed over to tho .Governor of
Georgia, to be tried for stealing. The Gov
ernor has called tho Secretary of War’s at
tention to this matter, and no more rebel
officers will be exchanged until these officers
arc released.
Joseph Strickland, late Chief of the Fire
Department at Dayton, Ohio, was arrested

Indianapolis, June 15.— Some fifty armed
Copperheads attacked the house of James
Sill, an enrolling officer, near Fillmore, Put
nam county, lost night, and attempted to get
possession of Ids books and papers, bat
fi.ikd. They shot a young man who was in
the house, slightly wounding him.
It was announced some days since that Sen

ocratic politicians had promised to publish a

stand by the laws and discountenance all op
position to tho Couscriptmu act, etc., but
they have failed to do so and are either afraid
of their party, or wish to see their country in
volved In civil war. They have tho power and
fall to use it. The blood of Deputy Marshal
Stevens and others is upon their heads.
A large number of the leading Butternut
politicians and members of tho late Legisla
ture ore here to-night. A caucus is doubtless
being held. A young lady named Broughor,
who recently tore a Butternut pin from an
American flag, at a school house meeting in
Jennings county, was shot bv a Butternut
rowdy near the same place, a few days after
ward. The shot took effect iu her right leg.
The rascal was afterward captured and lodged
in jail. There arealso rumors ot more trouble
in Rush county.

From Helena 1 learn that Gen. Freotiss has

using to advantage colored men, formerly
slaves In Arkansas and Mississippi. Recently,
be sent out forty contrabands, with white of

extensive raid into the enemy’s country, be
fore tbeir return. The results are as follows:
They brought Into Helena 375 negroes, 25
bales of cotton, 32 mules, and 3,500 pounds of
bacon, -without the loss of a single man.
Pretty good for a first experience in raiding
on enemy’s country I
THE COPPERHEADS' IN
COUNCIL
The Great Springfield
Meeting.
The Copperheads are arriving from all quar
ters, but not as yet in such numbers as was
anticipated. The leaders attribute this to. the
hot weather, and are preparing in advance,,
for a fidlnre as regards numbers. I believe,
however, it has been determined to set the
figures at 100,000. There has been quite a
contest as to Chairman. The names of Judge
Constable r Dlck Richardson, JnO.Moore, Gen.
Singleton, Sam Marshall, O’Melveny, and
Mayor Sherman, of Chicago, have been seve
rally pressed by their friends. Constable was
finally agreed upon, but it turned out that he
would not be here, and he was withdrawn.
The friends of Marshall and O’Mclveny de
mand one or the other, as a representative of
the untiring Democracy of Egypt, but I loam
that, on account of the rivalry, all will be set
aside, and a new man selected, according to
the ancient usages of the party.
The resolutions agreed upon, solar, contain
but three points, viz: Freedom of speech,
freedom of the press, and freedom of the bal
lot box. The influential leaders desire to pass
only these, hut it is feared by them that the
masses will demand armlstlc and peace reso
lutions. The rank and file are ahead of the
leaders on this subject. They fear the con
scription and the taxes.
All day to-day the leaders arc engaged in
endeavoring to restrain tho masses. 3hey
may ho seen manipulating the heads of the
masses in all directions. - The leaders also fear
that the rank and file will come in to-morrow
with secession flags.; Indeed, it is s'ated that
they will place secession flags upon the State
House and Governor’s Mansion. The leaders
want to avoid any display which would give
their meeting a disloyal aspect. *
The invasion of Pennsylvania and Lee’s ad
vance on 'Washington, are having a had effect
upon the tone of the meeting. . It does ap
pear out of character to see a meeting of
dastardly peace and' concession Copperheads
held in tho Capital of one of the great States,
while that of another Is probably being sack
ed by the public enemy, who is also menacing
tho Capital of the country. Ob, Democracy,
blush for thy degenerate sons.
Gov. Seymour hod sent'on for the reporter
of the New York World to take down his
speech, but he cannot now come. Ho would

He is opposed to giving a man or a dollar
more for the war, and says the only thing we
can now do is to look to the Northwest
He and Gen. Singleton had a discussion In
the street to-day, the General taking ground
in favor of the prosecution of. the war.. I
have heard Democrats argue in favor of with
drawing the troops to the free States and not
allowing Lincoln another soldier, except to
defend the border. Look ont for a contest
to-morrow between the Immediate peace and
the war Democrats; but the leaders are work
ing hard to calm the troubled waters.
The Register of this morning contained a
very violent article against the Administra
tion.
There are from 1,000 to 1,500 strangers in
and about the place already—not more. All
tho ciowds so far arc reported. There arc
trains of wagons from various counties re
ported, but I have yet to sec the first make
its appearance. Some Democrats have got
up the story that Got. Tates has left town,
but this is not so. He Is the lost man to

J. T. Sanger, esq., of Chicago, and Mr.

side, who have just arrived on the steamer St
Louis, informs me that they, this morning,
went over the field of the late struggle at MU
llkcn’s Bend yesterday, and from them I ob
tain the most reliable and distinct account I
have yet heard of that affair.
Some seventy dead bodies of negroes had
been buried, and nearly a hundred rebel dead
lay unburied—the negroes being determined
to bury their own comrades first.. It must,
from an accounts, have been one of the most
horrible combats of the whole war.
It appears that the rebel force numbered
about 6,000.
The negroes were driven back nntU almost
forced into the river, when they rallied and
charged bayonets npon the rebels. After
pounding them to the earth, and when their
bayonets were broken, dabbing their guns
and beating out the brains of the enemy.
The latter came on with a yell of “No
quarter.” My informant states that though
having traversed a number of fields, ho has
never before seen such ghastly looking
corpses.
This Indicates terrible desperation with
1 which the combatants struggled. The white
officers of two negro regiments were lear-
tally decimated, but the negroes took terri
ble revenge in blood and rebel officers.
Cairo, June 16.—News from Vicksburg to

cavalry. The country Is entirely devastated
for fifty miles, ana judges say it is impossible
for Johnston to move an army, with the trans
portation he could get, over the hills, and
then carry supplies to them. Tbe Impression
is, that he will not attempt it. and that Pem
berton is abandoned to his fate.
