Address “CHICAGO TRIBUNE,” Chicago, HL
The situation at Vicksburg is unchanged,
•and if our readers weary at the expression,
let them remember that it is a fkr lighter
grief to weary of sameness, where same
ness is safety, than to enjoy any such nov
elty as the defeat of Grant by Jo. John
ston. As long as the morning’s dispatches
assure you, reader, that no disaster has

long for, that Vicksburg is ours. Our dis*
patches* from the scene of operations are
Jiigbly interesting and important, however.
The report of an invasion of Indiana by
a rebel cavalry force of 900, is a canard,
originated by some frightened persons who

Ohio. The rebel cavalry raid first report
ed, however, was a reality, as also is the
fact, told elsewhere in our paper to-day,
that nearly every rascal engaged, that was
not killed or drowned, is now a prisoner.
The Home Guards of Leavenworth, Tnd ,
numbering less than a hundred men and
Leys, gave the invaders, numbering sixty
five men, a warm reception. After a short
tight, the invaders were captured, and they
and their horses are now in the hands of
the authorities. Considerable damage and
a great fright was occasioned by this inglo
rious raid.
The victims of the wreck of the late Illi
nois Legislature have been heard from.
The raft containing the few Copperhead
nurvivors is still afloat, and Little Fuller

Gov. Tates ignores the raft altogether.

that other phrase of the business com

will draw straight on its own deposits, in
advance of all its needs, and not “kite” or

its obligations to meet with the rebels are
actually overdue. The people have said,

to the poor owners, and the smoke of their

Baltimore is the point immediately threat

-abundant data for something better than
jncre conjecture.
Many hearts throughout the land will be
saddened by the intelligence that the con
dition of Rear Admiral Foote is pronounc
ed hopeless by his physicians.
The Copperheads, at their Springfield
jjow wow, adopted a plank hewn out by a
Fort X-afiiyette traitor, as follows:
23. J.r'cJcf d. By the Democracy of Illinois, that
the further offensive prosecution of this war tends
to Mibrert the Conetitntion and the Government,
and entails upon tide nation all the disastrous con-
I of mlsrnlc and anarchy.
It is on this issue B. F. Ayer, nominated
an the Convention yesterday, goes before
the people as the candidate for the Judgc
;-bip. Ought he not to be condensed Ayer
Ijcforehe gets through the canvass? No
loyalty can breathe in such Ayer and live.
The Copperhead Convention yesterday
ssainblcd and fixed its choice onß. F.
Ayer, as their candidate for the vacant
Judgeship in this circuit, at the election on
Tuesday next. Mr. Ayer is an attorney of
moderate parts, who is, perhaps, best
Icnown to our citizens as having oecn the
orator of the day on a recent 4lh ol July
occasion, where the men who manage
Mayor Sherman, forced him to decide
against the sclcctien of any War Demo
crats lo deliver the oration, and where not
even Hon. Daniel S. Dickinson was per
mitted to be chosen, lest his speech should
contain something to hurt the feelings of
the Chicago rebel sympathizers. Mr.
Ayers oration, it will he remembered, veiy
f-uccessfully steered clear of any allusion
that would injure the sensibilities of Jeff
Davis’ Chicago friends. That is who Mr.
Ayer is. For the rest, he has been a resi
dent of Chicago about three years, since
Lc came here a second time. Had he not
3n the interim pulled up his stakes, aud
settled again in New Hampshire, he might
3iow be eligible for the office here, but as
the law requires a five years’ residence, no
one outside a Coppcriicad Convention
•would deem him available.
But though clearly ineligible, let no one
imagine that he will for that reason re
ceive any the fewer Copperhead votes.
They will give him their full strength.
The rock that the Union party is most
liable to split on, is the tendency of. its vo
lers to stay at home on election day and
leave voting to others, or to take care of
Itself. This constitutes the only ghost of a
chance that Mr. Ayer has of being elected.
Tct any man who for an instant exam
ines the crew that are attempting to foist
Ayer into the Judgeship will 'take
silann. He will be supported by the
clique that run the organ of Jeff Davis in
this city. He will be pushed forward by
men who have never had loyal word, or
thought in behalf of this -Government.
The fire-in-thc-rcar men, the enemies of
the Union, the recreant Kentucky clique,
the renegade Northern tools of the slave
power, the men whose hands are deep in
the Iniquities of the late Legislature, and
the earlier enormity .of the defeated State.
Constitution, will all vote for Mr. Ayer-
The men who oppose the draft, who re.
Soicc at rebel successes, who desire the de
struction of iiitß Government will all vote
for Mr. Ayer, a solid and square vote.
On the other hand, the election of E. 8
’’Williams places on tie bench a man of un
blemished purity, professionally and in a
private capacity, a gentleman years ago of
established reputation at our bar, the law
partner of the late Hon. Justin Butterfield*
and of the late James H, Collins. He will
adorn the bench, and carry loyalty into
every decision and position of his judicial
career. He must be elected. If he is not
elected, our Union men will be recreant to
their trusts. They must come forward.
Everyman must do his whole duty on
that day.
A veiy good thing, sir, or madam, is
furniture polish. We have no interest to
say which is the best in use. Any itiner
ant will tell you for twenty-five cents.
But,dealing in the article in the abstract it
is an excellent thing to keep the surface of
your parlor furniture resplendent in their
sheen, and guiltless of mar or spot. Ex
cellent, truly excellent to keep old mahog
anies. good as new, and rosewood and
black walnut intact from scratch or stain.
But there is a time for everything. A
time to dance, and a time to refrain from
dancing. A time to put polish upon your
furniture, and a time to save your furni
ture itself and let its polish take care
of itself Say your house is on fire, or
endangered. Stout aims are stretched out
to save your property. The moment urges
vigor. The crackling of the hostile flames
rises near, and rolls nearer. AH is confu
sion. In come the brawny fellows. They
empty the ctagere in a trice, overturn the
piano and unscrew its legs with more zeal
than caution. The sofa goes scurraying
out of a window, the arm chair actually
seems to take to its own legs In its
flight It is a sad hour for varnish, cas
tors, and upholstery, hut the work must
go on. The property must be saved.
How out of place at such an hour would
be the advent of a dapper and dainty man
with a bottle of furniture polish, to be* ap
plied to your scratched furniture, not yet
out of your imperilled house. “Here,
you fireman, rough fellow, unused to fine
furniture! stand back! set down that arm
chair. Let me mend its polish where you
have marred it. It is the constitutional
right of every article of furniture in well
regulated families to be touched up with
furniture polish.” Pray consider how the
errand of the man ol polish would speed
at the above named juncture in your af
It is an hour of dire peril to our nation.
The flames of rebellion are roaring and
crackling in other Stales. Their glowing
cinders are falling upon prepared tinder in
the still loyal States. The danger is im
minent The page of histoiy is red with
the glare of deadly warfare. Something
must be done or all is lost At such an
hour vigor and promptness and thorough
ness are all important Nothing else can
save ns, and yet the men with the furni
ture polish insist upon it that there is
nothing that just now requires more at
tention than the care of the varnished sur
iaces of our Society, which are being con
tinually scratched by these rough men
in shoulder straps.
It is all a mistake, a dangerous tamper,
mg with time. When the people rise into
a condition of serious and terrible anger at
the rebels, and are nerved as one to
save the nation, we shall wonder that we
ever dallied so long, and lost so much
time over furniture polish. When the war
is ended, the fire put out, the nation saved
we may have a general period of re-var
nishing and re-polishing, hut not now. It
is a dangerous, deceptive mockery.

The following dispatch has been received by
Gen. Burnside, from the expedition he sent
into Tennessee, to destroy the East Tenncs-
see & Virginia Railroad;
Boston, Ey., June 53,1363.
1 arrived here with my command at 11
o'clock this morning. I struck the railroad
at Lcnore; destroyed the road up to Knox
ville; made a demonstration against Knox
ville, so as to have the troops drawn from
above, destroyed the track, and started for
Strav.berry Plains. 1
I burned the State Creek ifridge, 812 feet
long, and the Strawberry Plain Bridge, 1,600
fret long, and also Massey Creek Bridge, 325
feet long. 1 captured three pieces of artil
lery, 200 boxes of artillery ammunition, over
500 prisoners, and 1,000 stand of arms. •
I destroyed a largd amount of salt, sugar,
flour, meal, saltpetre, one saltpetre works,
and other stores.
My command is much fatigued. We have
had but two nights’ sleep since leaving, Wll
llamshnrg. The force in East Tennessee was
larger than I hod supposed.
I did not attack Loudon Bridge for reasons
that I will explain. At Massey Creek I deter
mined to return.
In the mountains I had very great difficul
ties that were unexpected. I found the gap
through which I entered to return strongly
guarded with artillery and infantry,
blockaded with fallen Umber. -A force was
also following in onr rear.
I determined to cross at Smith’s Gap, which
I did.
I will report more fully as soon as possible.
Very respectfully, your obedient servant,

Cairo, Jobo 24,1693.
Captain Ed. Oaband of Chicago, arrived last
night on the steamer Belle Memphis, a spe
cial bearer of dispatches from Gen. Grant to
the War Department at Washington. He left
the rear of Vicksburg on the afternoon of
Friday the 10th inst. At that time a brisk
engagement, seemingly engaging all the rebel
and Onion forces was going on around the
entire lino surrounding the oity.
Of course the result is unknown. This in
formation is confirmed by passengers upon
the steamer pope, which arrived this morning
IromMcmpbls on iheSlst,
When your correspondent’s letter of the
18th was written, the rebels were not work
ing more than six heavy guns and two thir
teen inch mortars. The digging for mining
the enemy’s works is uotas extensive as here
tofore supposed. The location, however, of
such operations is carefully chosen.
Gen. Sherman on the right was gradually
. reducing the enemy’s fort opposite, and si
lencing gun alter gun of their batteries. It
is supposed that Sherman is more nearly
ready to enter the rebel works than the other
Generals, though closely contested by Blair,
• Logan and McPherson.
Some of Sherman’s approaches arc so close
that the distance could he made with spades
in a short time.
Onr troops are all anxious for a demonstra
tion. G«u. Logan with his forces, opposite
to what is called Fort Hill, was fast heating
down the earthworKs,-nhd rendering thorn
useless as a protection to the Confederate ar
On the 17th the rebels opened fire upon
McCiernand’s position with briskness. The
casualties on our side occurred mostly in the
rifle pits.
Gen. John E. Smith's division was busily
engaged with a thirteen inch mortar in their
front, which mortar caused some dissatisfac
tion among onr men, who thought the shells
came rather nearer than was exactly comfort
Tour correspondent Waldo slept that night
at Gen. Logan’s headquarters, lulled to slum
ber by whistling bullets from rebel sharp
shooters. Gen. Logon was much exposed.
He habitually exposes himself, rather more,
some think, than expedient or necessary.
On the 17th, the enemy expended 500
pounds of powder and over 3,500 pounds of
iron, in the shape of shells and shot, upon
Logan’s force alone.
The rebel hospitals are largely on the in
crease. Hardly a day passes that new red
flags aie not observed Hying over houses in
the city. This was particularly observed in
front of Gen. Hill’s division, though this may
have been a ruse to keep our gunners from
firing upon the cUy. Ajed flag was even seen
flying from one of their torts, from an embra
sure in which a heavy gun was dealing, oyt
death to Union soldiers.
The 15ih Illinois regiment, on the 17th, cap
tured fourteen rebel prisoners frying to make
their way through our lines.
All censure Pemberton heartily, as do all
prisoners taken lately. They say a lend is
now existing between the General in com
mand and General Bowen, which is doily
growing more bitter.
On the morning of the ISth, the Confeder
ate colors wero flying, for the first time, oyer
Tort Hill, and were three times shot down by
our sharpshooters.

The deserters from Vicksburg are ascer
tained to be mainly Infirm or disabled. Here
after they will all be treated os prisoners of
war, qb they are sent out to save prisoners.
The attitude of thq> siege is unchanged.
There has been less filing yesterday and to
The gunboat Choctaw is not sunk, as re
ported, but is being repaired.
No attack has yet been made by Johustau.
The rebels on the west side of the Missis
sippi have not shown themselves since they
were driven from Richmond. Prisoners ta
ken at that place express their joy at being
taken by white men, is they expected no
quarter from the blacks, of whdm they stand
in great dread, since their furious fight at
Miillkeu's Bend.
Reinforcements are _ constantly arriving
and assurance as regards Grant's rear
if is daily made doubly sure, and there is
not a shadow of doubt Indulged in here as to
our ability to hold our own against any and
everything that may come from Jackson, or
any other direction.
Paymasters have arrived and are going to
pay the troops to the Ist of May. Some dis
satisfaction ;is expressed that they did not
wait until the Ist of July, and then pay up
for four months. •

Gen. Herron, on the extreme left, Is work
ing his way np with great rapidity, and get
ting his batteries in position at short range.
He has one to two hundred
yards nearer within a day or two.
A series of rumors are constantly reaching
here, concerning disasters above and below,
such as attack on Memphis, fall of Helena,
taking of Haines Bluff, and trouble in
front of Banks. Bntit is surprising how.lifrle
lodgment such rumors, however iudustrious
ly circulated, obtain among soldiers.
Strangers arriving here constantly remark
the .wonderful spirit and confidence of our
troops. - f
Gen. Washburn has arrived at, and assumed
command of Haines' BluiL Lieut. E. F, Hill,
of McAllister's Battery, was shot lost evening
from an embrasure in the front Battery, in
the very place where Capt. Rogers was killed
a short time since. He was watching the ef
fect of the shot from one of his guns, when
a ball from a rebel sharpshooter went through
his hedd sidewise passing under and back of
bis eyes. He was alive at midnight, 4 but prob
ably cannot live many hours.
Provost Marshal Gillette, this morning got
possession of a rebel, Maj. M. W. Royd, Sur
geon in the Ist Mississippi light artillery, who
was left in charge of the rebel woundedin one
of our hospitals, who was on his parole. It
is understood that the Major was frying to get
back into the rebel lines with information
valuable to Pemberton, which he had picked
np in our camp.
Yesterday two rebel spies were caught with
in a mile of McPherson’s headquarters. They
were from Bragg’s army and had concealed
about their persons plans of our fortifications
and specifications of numbers and position of
our troops.
Spies find it impossible now to penetrate
onr lines.

On the ICth the rebel Gen. Anderson, with
a division belonging to the command of Maj.
Gen. Hick Taylor, marched from Richmond
towards Lake Providence, where Gen. Reed
was stationed with a small Federal force, con
sisting of the Ist Kansas and 16th Wisconsin
regiments, with some negro troops, less than
1,500 in all.
Richmond is eight miles back, fromToung’s
Point, where the Shreeveport road crosses
the Tennessee River, about twelve miles from
MUUkcnV Bend and thirty from Lake Provi
dence, and important. -It is an important
point from the fact that from it those" places
are cosily accessible by . good roads, and for
the enemy it would be an exceedingly offen
sive position towards us.
Gen. Reed went onf to meet Mm and de
stroyed a bridge over the .Tennessee River, a
short distance from the head.
At Lake Providence the rebels opened bn
Mm with a six pounder, .damaging
him &t first considerably, : bat he
succeeded in silencing the gun find
and preventing the rebels from crossing, also
pouring in a terrible fire of musketry upon
them as they pressed up to the river. Think
ing onr force larger than theirs, the enemy
retreated, with a heavy loss.
On the same day, Gen- Mower marched on
Richmond from Sherman’s Landing; with his
brigade of infantry and Taylor’s old Chicago
Battery, under the command of Capt. Barrett
On reaching the Tensas, be met the rebel
pickets and drove them in. The rebels burnt
the bridge and undertook to moke a stand.
Capt. Barrett opened lire, and was well sup
ported by the infantry. Such was the com
bined shower of shell and bullets, that, though
lighting well, the rebels were obliged lull
With what cavalry force he hadj Gen. Mower
then pursued the flying enemy, succeeding in
capturing forty-two prisoners.
The affair was perfected with signal vigor
and promptness by oar troops, their impetu
osity and daring overcoming the disparity in
numbers on the part oi the etemy.
It is likely from indications that the entire
force of Gen. Dick Taylor—who, by the way,
is a son of OldZack—has skedaddled to the
Red River country.
There was an extensive fire In Vicksburg
last night, illuminating the whole country for
miles around. It is not known what burned.
Washington, June 24.— Gen. Grant has tel

Washington, June 24,— The Richmond Dia
patch of yesterday contains the following:
Jackson, Miss., June 18.—The enemy’s
cavaliy made a dash on our outposts, near
Edwards' Depot, yesterday, but found them
too strong, and retreated across the Big Black
Scarcely a day passes without an accident
on the railroad, which, being the principal
means of transporting supplies, has retarded
Gen. Johnston's movement.
A special dispatch to the
Panola, Miss., 18ih,-says a heavy force of Yan
kee cavalry is marching on Scacomi, between
that point and Grenada. Hatch’s and Wal
lace’s cavalry are rigging rafts to cross the
Tallahatchie, with the intcntlonof destroying
the road below Panola, and cutting off John
ston’s supplies.
Another force is crossing the Coldwatcr,

Gen. Johnston has issued orders granting
full pardon to nil deserters in this department,
who will rejoin their regiments Immediately.
Jackson, Miss., June 20, via Mobile, June
21.—Citizens just in, report a heavy engage
ment between Jackson’s cavalry and the ene

left, the musketry and cannonading was aw
ful. and terrific firing is heard in the direction
of Vicksburg.
The Aspects in Pennsylvania and
Harrisburg, June 24.— The city has been
in a high state of excitement all day. News
from up the valley shows that the rebels are
rapidly advancing in this direction In strong
force. No troops would he likely to venture
so far from their base of operations Into an
enemy’s country, without a force sufficient to
act on the offensive. So far no opposition
has been made to their movements.
The rebels are now twelve miles from Car
lisle, and advancing. Gen.Knipes, command
ing the forces in the valley, will probably give
them battle at that point.
The rebels will no doubt appear in front of
tha*. town to morrow. Our cavalry, who fell
back os the rebels advanced,have been unable
to discover any infantry as yet, but there is
no doubt a strong force Is in supporting dis
A deserter belonging to the 44th Ga.. regi

bis regiment was doing picket duty near
Hagerstown, and on Monday morning fifty of
them deserted and made their way to the

and yesterday morning they all started for
Frederick City, hoping to make their way to
Baltimore. With the exception of this man
who came to Gettysburg, he states that Ew
ells whole corps, of sir brigades, were at
Hagerstown when he left.
It numbered about 12,000 men. The last
brigade left ibis post on Friday, and arrived
at Hagerstown tbo same day. Orders were
issued Sunday for the corps to move at five
o'clock Monday morning. It is believed they
arc coming in this direction, supporting
Jenkins’ force of cavalry.
McCoxhelsbuuo, Fa., June 24.—Business
is at a siaud still, farmers being obliged to
keep their horses concealed In the Mountains,
and the prospects of reaping the coming har
vests arc discouraging. The rebels are over
running Franklin county.. Two rebel desert

New Yobk, June 24.—A Washington spe
cial to the Herald says:
The President lias been engaged nearly all
day -with Gens. Hooker and Haileck, and the
Secretary of War.
Lee’s force is evidently on a line along the
xallqy of Virginia, between Gordonsvlhe and
the Upper Potomac. A distinguished officer
has expressed the opinion that Gen. Lee in
tends to get the crops of the valley and the
adjacent territory, and obtain as many horses
andcaltle as possible, before our army may be
in a condition in the autumn to again advance
upon Richmond.

Tlie Lato Raid Into Crawford and
Orange Counties, Indiana—Their to
tal Discomfiture and Capture.
[Correspondence Cincinnati Commercial.]
. Evansville, Jnno 31,1863.
This most complete defeat Kill teach the
rebels in raid business. They expected to And
sympathy, obtain recruits, destroy railroads,
load themselves and captured horses with
spoils, and escape, in neither of which
particulars have they had the least success,
tbar.ks to the true loyalty and determined
valor of the people ol Crawford and Wash
ington counties, over a thousand of whom
had armed, mounted and pnt themselves up
on the track of the rascals. There have been
reports published of arson and murder
by these rebels, but I have yet to hear of the
loss ol a single life on building at their bauds
in this raid. Laboring under the supposition
that they were coming among people, the ma
jority of whom sympathize! with them, they
evidently did all in tnelr poorer, first, to move
n as secret a manner as possible ; second, to
conciliate ns far as possible. For instance:
meeting a couple of gentlemen and the same
number of ladies, in a wagon, a couple of
miles south of Pilot Knob, each of the sixty
four made his polite salute to the ladies and
passed silently on, the only words spoken be
ing an offer to exchange horses, which was
declined. They said nothing and did nothing
to show their character or intentions, and the
parties in the wagon, meeting these silent and
orderly troopers beneath the shadows of an
Indian forest, would never have suspected
them of being any but friendly forces, had not
one of them, an Fast Tennesseean, who has
suffered much at their bauds, recognized their
uniform., Driving rapidly to Leavenworth, he
gave the *fiist general alarm, and couriers
were dispatched all over the country, to raise
the people— - with what success, we haveseen.
It is supposed that the marauders had intend
ed, after securing all the torses they could
take with them, to go still further .North and
cut the Ohio and Mississippi road,andtbconc
from New Albany, Intersecting it, near Mitch
ell. The general uprising, however, and non
appearance of that sympathy which they had :
looked for, convinced them that this woald
be going too far for their own safety, and I
they contented themselves with attempting
to escape with the boot? already secured! All
things considered, this may be set down, as
the most dashing raid of the war, on the part
of the rebels, and the most signally unsuccess

Xlic Recent Cotton Sale.
[From the Cincinnati Gazette Jane 23.]
Some; of the bales of cotton bought la thi*
city, at Government sale, have been found se
riously damaged by water having been poured
In to increase the weight, and the fibre there
by being made rotten. In one of the bales
opened by Messrs. Gould, Pearce & Co , man
ufacturers of this city, we observed a piece of
millstone weighing forty-two pounds, which,
at a rate ot over fifty cents a pound, made a
rare and costly cariosity for a cabinet. Of
course, the Government is not to blame, but
these fhets show that cheap price cotton is not
always a bargain.
