Our news from the various theatres of
War is 'comparatively meagre, and where
not meagre is not clear as to results. The
battle in Pennsylvania is began, and the
details of the first day’s fight are given.
That of yesterday known to be most hot
ly contested gives us no details later than
immediately after its opening. There is

To-day is the Annlversaiy of our birth
as a nation. There be few yet olive in our
Communities who, saw the light of that first
day. God grant that none of ns may live
to see, and to say, that “ this is the last.”
The present is full of grave and solemn
portends. The future looks dark, and men
gaze wistfully hack to the sunny past of
our national existence as the traveler snow

Those Independence days of old, with their
Citizen-military pomp and parade, the
burning of peaceful powder, the boom of
noisy but innocuous cannon, the proces
sions, the icastings, the soaring in
vocations to the American Eagle, the
lofty apostrophes to the flag, the
reading of the Declaration, the mag
nificent mouthlngs of the orators of
the day, the joy of the little folks, the re
pressed hilariousness of the elders, are gone
forever. “We have entered upon a new

In this third year of the war, we wait
to-day to hear from our armies. Thou

of to-day. Let this annivcrsoiy be the

The news from Mexico has been gaining
in importance with cadi arrival, and the
crisis seems now to have passed and tamed
against the Mexicans, who are every way
gaining ground before the invaders. In
deed, for the present, the Mexican Govern*
Snmt has been removed to San Luis Po
tosi, the capital of the State of San Lull l
Potog, and situated 200 miles northwest
of the City of Mexico. It is stated that the
Mexican forces, numbering in the aggre
gate some 20,000 men, have evacuated the
capital, with the intention of carrying on
a guerilla warfare.
It is further stated in the same advices
that a portion ol the French army occupied
the main entrance to the City of Mexico
on the sth ult, and afforded the Church
party protection against the excited populace.
The Church party had given in its allegi
ance to the Emperor Napoleon, three
papers had been established in the
interest of the French, and this newly
created Press had distinctly announced
the determination to extirpate by root
the democratic dement, and that there
jieed no longer be even a dream of popu
lar sovereignty. Gen, Forey has issued a
decree confiscating the property ol all par
ties who Ifove been or are in arms against
the French, and the entire French army

The rebels claim that the Atlanta, or Fin
gal, was surrendered on account of treachery.
The following two accounts give their views.
The Savannah Xett* publishes the following
communication from a naval officer:
Satasnaii, Jane 17,1838.
Editor Homing News:
The impression conveyed by your account
of the capture of theAtianta, iulast evening's
edition, is that the loss of the vessel is owing
to her having run aground, or having been
fatally injured by one of the enemy's shot.
Now, sir, there certainly is no ground for
either, for where the fight took place there is
deep water, and plenty of it, and as to any
.shot having struck her with serious effect—lt
is simply impossible to state so with any cer
tainty, fiom a distance of two miles. ’
There is certainly some mystery about this
“fight,” and It is singular that yon were not
Informed of the white flag having been hoist
ed, then hauled down, and the Confederate
fine run up, to be again lowered.
These are facts witnessed by several, and
tbo opinion was general that it indicated
somethingwronggoingon aboard the ill-fated
Capt. Webb Is not the man to run up the
white flog at all, and the facts strongly go to
fell* >w that there was foul work being done.
Three-fourths of her crew were men from
the army and conscripts, who • never saw a
vessel before—the remainder were of all sorts
—o few sailors.
A short time before she went out remarks
were made by some of the sailor portion of
the men that “if the ship went out it would
be worse for her and the officers, as they
would find out,’* and other expressions,
showing a bod spirit amongst them. Unfor
tunately, the person who heard thin Liifr t not
belonging to the vessel, was not aware of the
important duty devolving upon i»im ©f re
porting it to the officers.
Now, sir, my opinion is that the Atlanta
has been betrayed to the enemy by base
Any one who is acquainted with the ship
knows that thirty men, by concerted action
at such a moment, could overpower the two
officers on deck and take charge before the
remainder of the crew, unused to shipboard
and such scenes, could prevent it.
The Atlanta was not the ship to be iojured
by a few shots. Her pilots, Hernandez and
Austin, were not the men to ran her aground
where there was sea room, and Capt, Webb
and his officers, above all. were not then
taking their first lesson under Yankee fire.
Without any positive knowledge of the
ship, or the effect of the enemy's shot upon
her (if indeed she was hit; the simple fact
tiiat the white flag was first run up, then
lowered and the Confederate flag hoisted, and
and again lowered to give place to the United
States flag, is conclusive evidence that it was
not a regular surrender, while it is very sug
gestive of conflict among the crew of the At
TJp to the time of going to press, we have
no further developments regarding the sad
d« n mid mysterious surrender of this vessel.
, Opinions are still divided on the subject,
some believing that she fell a victim to trea
son on board; whilst others, including all
the officers of the navy, we believe, arc of
opinion that her men were all true, and she
struck her colors simply because she got into
a position where she could not fight The
secret will probably not be unfolded until we
receive it through the Northern press or the
nturn of prisoners.
It was stated on the streets yesterday that
the Confederate and whitefUg alternated from
the mast for some time, leading to the con
clusion that there was a struggle on board,
but cn diligent inquiry we could find no au
ti 'Ority for the report.
The Atlanta was aimed with sis large rifled
guns, of immense power and heavy calibre,
we would much prefer to sec them in our
own hands, rather than in the hands of the
enemy, we have some reason ta bops that
the vessel herself is so badly os to
be useless.
The Atlanta had on boa-d, including offi
cers, crew, and other attaches, some one
hundred and fiity persons, fihe was com
manded by Gapt. Webb, an officer well
know for his loyalty and gallantly. We are
willing to gnaran'ee that he never gave up
the ship sc long as a fight was possible. He
made every preparation for a successful fight,
having secured a formidable torpedo on the
prow of his vessel, expecting to blow up one
ofthe Monitors, and then engage theotber. A
reconoissaunce ihe night previous by skillful
pilots, well acquainted with the Sound,
showed ample water where ihe enemy were
Ijing, and every other circumstance propi
tious. He expected to come upon the moni
tors by daylight, but was somewhat belated
in getting down, and when there be found
the enemy bad changed their position to shal
low water. Why he did not return on making
the discovery is not known. He determined,
< n the contrary, to make the fight, and we
have the result, so far as it is possible to as
certain it. —Savannah HepuUiearu

The next punt to wMch my Gazette friend
end myself arged our provokingly lazy and
I)srver.-e quadruped* •was a battery in Gem
.ogan’s division, mo an Ling two 30-pound Par
rot*, two 9 inch Dahlgrens, aud several
tmalier pieces, and connected wbh which is
an extended range of rifle-pits. While secur
ing onrmules a shell from the 13 inch mortar
iu possession of the rebels gave ns a hospita
ble greeting. It burst, with a lond explosion,
about fifty yards from ns. We walked abont
among the pits, peeping at the rebel works
through the portholes for rifles, lor abont fif
teen minutes, when another monster shell
from the same mortar went whizzing over our
heads, and exploded in the midst of perhaps
one hundred men, only one of whom
was wounded. We watched for about
ten minutes the operations of two Union
sliarpshootcrs, who had taken a position
at the base of one of the rebel earth-work
forte, and were digging away at the same
with might and main, protected by other
sharpshooters in our pits from the enemy,
who conld not hanc been more than twelve
or fifteen feet from them, and then turned
buck to the bottcry. Arrived there we asked
for a drink of water, and while drinking our
entertainer remarked that it was abont time
for another shell; and, polling oat his watch,
he said: “She is nearly a minute behind time
now.*’ “Here she comes—look out,” cried%
man at the door of the tent at the same in
slant. I rushed out hoping and expecting to
sec the huge missile sailov6r my head. To
n.y consternation, however, I discovered a
back-looking object coming straight toward
ir.e, and before I conld tnm to retreat, it
struck the ground übout twenty feet in front
of me aud instantly exploded, I was covered
vitt: dirt in which the shell imbeded itself
before exploding, but otherwise was uninjur
ed. Aloud laugh from all hands, as if the
bursting of a shell 13 inches in diameter were
one of the best jokes of the season, notified
Dio that nobody was hurt, and I regained
the perpendicular, which 1 had involuntarily
exchanged for a horizontal position. I walked
to the spot where the shell struck, and secur
ed a'picce weighing about two pounds. My
inspection of the hole in the earth afforded
me an explanation of the fact that there are
rebels still olive in Vicksburg, notwithstand
ing the storms of shot and shell to which
they have been almost dolly subjected for
more than a month. The earth hereabout is
exceedingly soft. When a shell strikes the
ground, it inevitably buries itself to a depth
of two or three feet, and when the explosion
fallows the fragments have to travel through
the earth in various directions to reach the
surface, and when there their force is spent.
The shell I have spoken of struck not
three feet from one of the large Dahlgren
guns in the battery, and yet not a scratch
V] on the gnn or carriage, indicated that a
piece bad touched it.
1 have omitted to mention that it was in
Gen. Logan's tent I was standing when -this
shell was announced os coming “on time.’*
Ihe rebels have a dislike to the Dablgrens
a:.d Parrotts in this battery, and have been
firing at it occasionally for a week post
They have obtained for their mortar the exact
range, end nnless something is done to rem
edy the matter they may render the position
untenable. It is now dangerous. The men
v-ho work the battery, however, appear to
ci.joy the excitement of the game they are
playing, and when 1 suggested the deslrabil
iir of a more sheltered position, they laughed
at' me. Gen. Logan's bravery, in making his
L* adqnartcrs at such a place, is more conspic
uous than his prudence.
While lingering in this place, I learned
something concerning onrammnnitlon, which
surprised me. Our sharpshooters in advance
cf our batteries are much more afraid of our
own guns than of those of the enemy. Pre
n ature explosions of shells from our guns,
v.hlle contract ammunition la employed, are
r«n r i« tl » en^ th ?^ tiie y almost constitute the
I U i of exception. The gunners
ff 5 T, t fe l ii?2B T^r ? I ?. e^ t manufactured ammuni
tion is all right, but they have to re-inspect
contmct ammunition before daring to use It
and that they find it very defective. I have
made some further inquiries about thematter
and was told this morning that Pemberton
Lad offered six dollars a pound for the uncx
ploded powder in onr shells, and was collect
ing considerable quantities of it in this way.
For a contractor to fhndsh soldiers with
adulterated and defective: mmnnition is infl
nitoly more villainous than to give them
shoddy blankets or putrid and If this
army has been swindled in any such way, I
hope the perpetrators of the swindle will be
brought lb condign punishment.

The Details of the Fight
ing on Thursday.
Gen. Meade’s Official Dis-
News to Yesterday at 10 A. M,
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribnue.j
Washington, July 5,1853.
The following has j ost been received:
Battle field in Sight op Gettxsbubg,
Pa., July 2d.—Yesterday’s battle here instead
of being only a very hotly contested heavy
skirmish, os was understood at* the time at
Torytown, and as stated in my dispatches
from there, prove to have been really almost
as hotly a contested fight in proportion to the
number engaged,as the war has yet furnished.
A glance at the partial lists of casualties to
officers furnished herewith, is sufficient to
establish its severity. Practically the fight
was between the let army corps on our side,
and Ewell’s corps of rebels, with two divis
ions oi Hill’s.
Our troops advanced in the monring to Go 1 *
tysburg, passed through town and had ad
vanced nearly a mile on the other side when
it met the enemy in position. Meredith’s
brigade of Wadsworth’s division wheeled In
stantly into line oi battle on the double
quick, charged the enemy and routed them
handsomely, took one rebel regiment prison
ers and occupied the rebel The
rebel prisoners taken were from Archer’s
brigade and included Gen. Archer himself.
Doubleday’s and Robinson’s divisions then
came up and completed our line. Heavy
skirmishing ensued till about three and a
p. m., when the rebels came up in heavy
force, the bulk of their two corps attacking
oar single one. Here ensued the fight, whose
bitter severity the long lists of killed and
wounded will so well attest.
The let chips managed to hold its ground,
however, till the 11th corps got up and into
position, bat even then it soon became mani
fest that they were largely outnumbered. On
our right the rebels pressed over till by sheer
superiority they completely turned our flanks
and by an enfilading fire forced the Uth corps
to break. They had partially redeemed them
selves from their mishap at Chancellorsville,
but were now forced to retire through the
town, which they did In some disorder.
The rebels on our left now poured forward,
completely outnumbering us, and finally
forcing the Ist corps also, after both its
flanks were exposed, to retire through the
town, which they did in good order, taking
up an exceedingly strong position on the
Heights. The enemy is south of the town of
Gettysburg, lathe country, and crests of bills
on cither side. There was no discourage
ment over the results. It ia the inevitable
consequence of the fact of the rebel advance
being nearly double the number ot onr own
advance, and of course argues nothing as to
the general result We are now concentrated
and ready for action.
It is believed that the main battle may be
gin this afternoon, but is more likely to be
delayed till to-morrow. Lee’s forces arc not
thought so well concentrated yet as
ours. Heavy rebel forces are feeling
both onr flanks this morning, and
sharp skirmishing Is going on with occasional
artillery practices.
The feeling is a pretty good one lor fighting.
The weather Is pleasant for the season.
There are abundance of form bouses which
aic being converted Into hospitals, and onr
wounded are well cared for. -
The following is a list of casualties
among the officers in General SoL
SoL Meredith's brigade, Wadsworth's Divis
ion, Ist Army Corps, In yesterday's fight:
Gen. Meredith, braised on top of the head by
a fragment of a sheik Ills horse was shot
under him and fell upon Mm bruising and in
juring Mm internally. Lieut. G. Woodward,
aid to Meredith, wounded in right arm. 19th
Indiana—Llcnt. Cok Dudley killed; Major
Lindley slightly wounded; Capt Holloway
in leg; Capt. Shaffer, in arm.
Washington, July 3.— An official dispatch
received this afternoon from Major General
Meade, dated Headquarters Army of the Po
tomac —11 p. m., July 2d, says:
The enemy attacked mo about 4 o'clock p.
m. to day, and after one of the severest con
tests of the war was repulsed at all
points. We have suffered considerably in
killed and wounded, among the former ore
Brigadier Generals Paul and Zook, and among
the wounded Generals Sickels, Barlow, Qra-
ham, and Warren, slightly.-
We have taken a large number of prisoners.
Washington, July 3. — A later dispatch has
been received from Gen. Meade, dated 8
o'clock this, Friday, morning, which says the
action commenced again at early daylight
npon various parts of the line.
The enemy thus far has mode no impres
sion upon my position* All accounts agree
in placing their whole army here.
Prisoners report that Longstreet’s and A. P*
Bill’s forces were much injured yesterday*
and hod many general officers killed. Gen.
Barksdale, of Mississippi, is dead. His body
iswbhln onr lines.
We have, thus lar, about 1,600 prisoners,
and a small number are yet to be sent in.
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
Philadelphia, July s, igcs.
The iVesshas a special, dated Hanover, X p
m. It says at 10 o'clock this forenoon
onr forces opened fire on 5;000 rebels who
made their appearance on the battle-field for
the purpose of pillaging the dead. The rebels
retreated hastily.
The fight thus for has been one of the se
verest of the war.
Gen. Sickels was wounded, and lias had his
right leg amputated. He is doing wclL
A second dispatch has been received sta
ting that at 1 o’clock this afternoon a desper
ate battle was raging, with heavy losses on
both sides.
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
Philadelphia, July 3, 1663.
Filing is still heard at Columbia, York and
Boinbridge, in the direction of Gettysburg,
and it is believed that a battle is still raging
between Gen, Meade and the forces of Lee.
Pleasanton’s cavalry is doing splendid service.
The cavalry, neglected by McClellan, were a
speciality of Burnside and Hooker, and their
efforts to make it tell upon the enemy are
now apparent in. the work accomplished with
in this week.
If Lee has not yet been driven back, Ms
flank has ere this been turned by Sedgewick,
who was yesterday afternoon moving in the
direction of Middletown and Herdseburg.
Telegraphic communication between Harris
burg and Baltimore has been re-established.
The militia have advanced from Harrisburg
to Bmokytown, six miles beyond Carlisle,
while the army of the Potomac, as telegraph
ed yesterday, were In communication with
the Department of the Snsqnehanna. The
railroad will be in operation between Balti
more and York within a week.
Although Harrisburg is in suspense, yet
no danger is to he apprehended, as if it had
been Lee’s intention to take it, lie could
hive done so by a flank movement through
the gaps and fords above Harrisburg, last
week, thus rendering the fortifications use
less on the opposite side of the Susquehanna.
Nothingyet is known here as to the result
of the heavy firing last night and to-day. It
is believed we have suffered heavy loss both
in officers and men, but Lee has been so crip
pled as to place himself on the defensive.
One of Meade’s couriers to General Couch
was killed by a Dutch farmer yesterday, a
short distance beyond York.
Two citizens of York have been arrested
within our lines as spies. The Copperheads
and peace men along the southern counties
of the State arc doing nil they can to aid the
rebels and mislead our officers nnd men.
They aid the rebels more than the Maryland
ers did.
I learn that Ewell was Chief Engineer oi
the Northern CeutflU Railroad when it was
building, whilst Simon Cameron, Ex-Secre
tary of War, was President of the Road. If
that road is a specimen of his abilities, we
med not fear Stonewall’s successor, for it Is
acknowledged to be the worst engineered
read in the Cnited States, for cats and em
Owing to the present state of affairs, all
public celebrations of the 4th have been post
poned here.
Among other casualties of the day were
Major General Reynolds, commandinglst

[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
Washington, July 3,1668.
Dispatches have been received here from
the army of the Potomac up to last night. It
is announced that Gens. Barlow and Schlnv
melpfennlng are both wounded and fell
into the enemy’s hands in the en
gagement of the day before yesterday.
They, with Generals Reynolds and Paul,
lulled, were the only Union General officers
who met with casualties. It is definitely
slated, we hear, in the dispatches referred to
above that the battle was fought on oar part
only by the Ist and Xlth army corps, while
the rebels engaged against them were be
lieved to embrace two-thirds of Lee’s whole
At the end of the fight, after repulsing the
rebels’ last attack, Gen. Meade shifted his
position to the heights above Gettysbnig,
where he was awaiting the coming up of
five other corps of his army that bad not par
ticipated in the engagement. In that position
the enemy had declined to attack him up to
last evening, by which time the balance of
our troops had got up, and were duly in line.
Lect, at that time, was concentrating his
troops near by, but ceased manifesting the
purpose, of renewing the attack, which at
half-past three p. m., he seemed about to do.
It is judged here that Leo was not attacked
yes’erday, because the troops that came up
were necessarily too much fatigued to permit
them wisely to he thrown into action against
the nnfatigued enemy. From the tenor of
the dispatches it is' believed here that
if the enemy declined renewing
the attack this forenoon, Gen. Meade would
at once engage his whole line.
Reports from above mention a rise in the
Potomac sufficient to render dll the fords be
low Cumberland impassible for some days.
The Government has a dispatch from Gen.
Meade, dated 3 o’clock yesterday. No fight
ing worth mentioning had taken place. Gen.
Meade intimated that he should not, of his
own accord, bring on a battle before to-day,
one of his corps having just come up, after a
long and fatiguing march, and requiring rest;
and it would seem that whatever fighting
took place yesterday must have been brought
on by the enemy. Gen. Meade says that his
troops are in excellent spirits, and eager for
a fight, and for a victory. Of Wednesday’s
battle, Gen. Meade says the enemy greatly
outnumbered ours on the field.
Our men behaved admirably, and the bat
tle was one of the hardest actions since the
war broke out. Our troops were finally
obliged to relinquish the ground which they
occupied in the early part of the day, and to
take protection on the heights south and
west of Gettysburg, which the rebels had
succeeded in occupying. Most of our wound
ed are therefore, of course, in the enemy's
hands, but we have taken so many prisoners
that the account is fully balanced.
Gen. Sigel, who was here for2l or 36hoars,
left this forenoon for Pennsylvania, where he
has been assigned a command under General
Couch. It Is stated that ten citizens of Car
lisle, whose names are known to the author
ities, went to Gen. Jenkins, when he was in
possession of the town, and begged him to
parole them. “Why?” he asked. “Be
cause we are unwilling to he drafted to fight
the South, with which we sympathize.” “If
you like ns the best,” replied Jenkins, “you
siiftii fight with us,”—and a number of the
Copperheads were forthwith taken into the
rebel force.
Baltimore, July 3.— The American learns
.from parties who left Gettysburg at noon yes
terday, that eveiy thing was progressing favor
ably for the ultimate success of our armies.
Dp to that time, they assert, upwards of 6,000
prisoners had been captured and sent to the
railroad terminus at Dnlon Bridge, for trans
General Schonck last evening had In his
possession 8,400 prisoners, in Biitlmore and
Chicago, Saturday, July 4, m 3.
at the Relay House, We leam that nearly
1.000 of these were captured on Wednesday,
by the 11th army corps, in their gallant
charge on Longstreet’s corps. They are said
to have at first slightly filtered, but when
Gen. Howard cried to them, “Remember
Chancellorsville!” they rushed into the fight
like infuriated demons, and the whole Hue of
the enemy gave way before them. During
the early part of the day, up to noon, when
onr informant left, there had been no general
battle, though heavy skirmishing- had been
going on all the morning, resulting in heavy
loss to the enemy and the capture of over
5.000 more prisoners. In all these skirmishes,
which were conducted under direction of
Gen. Meade, our armies were entirely suc
cessful. The enemy studiously avoided any
•general engagement, and it was thought
there would be a move before to-day, when
it was the intention of Gen. Meade to press
the enemy along the whole line.
The enemy was rapidly concentrating his
troops on Wednesday, and Gen. Meade’s
whole army had reached the field of battle.

The American also has the following:
We learn from Major Bumgordeu and an
other officer of Gen. Reynolds’ staff the fol
lowing interesting pat titulars of the battle
near Gettysburg;
We are happy to say Jt closed for the day
with the army of Gen. Meade iu the most ad
vantageous . position lor either attack or de
fense. At 0 o'clock Wednesday morning, the
Ist and 11th corps reached Gettysburg, enter
ing from the east side of the town, and marched
directly through to the west side, the cavalry
force of the enemy In the town galloping back
as we advanced. On passing out of the west
end of the town, the enemy was observed rap
idly from the Chambersburg turnpike, in line
of battle, towards the town, evidently endeav
oring to hold on advantageous position com
manding the town. The Ist corpse under
Gcu. Reynolds, which was in advance, pushed
forward at double quick, to secure an advan
tageous position. The enemy, under Long
et rt ct and Hill, advanced steadily, and In a
few minutes a heavy fire, both of ortilleryaud
musketry, opened along the whole Federal
and rebel lines.
The 11th Army Corps, under Gen. Howard,
was also soon in position, and for a time quite
a heavy battle raged. Several charges were
made by the enemy to dislodge our forces, ail
of which were unsuccessful. At 3 o’clock
the enemy massed his entire force and en
deavored to turn our right wing. Reynolds
advanced to meet them, and a heavy infantry
fight ensued, in which both suffered severely,
volley after volley of musketry being poured
into the opposing columns with deadly effect.
The field between the contending armies was
strewn with the dead and wounded. It is said
the enemy suffered fully ns heavily as we,
though it is not known what was their loss in
officers. The efforts to flank oar right wing
was entirely foiled, and we held a prominent
and commanding position, for which a strug
gle was made at the close of the fight, which
ceased for the day at about 4 p. m.
A great, decisive battle is considered Immi
nent ; and, notwithstanding our severe loss
in officers, the advantage of the day were re
garded as decidedly with our forces. The
aqny was in fine condition, full of enthusiasm
for the coming battle, and confident of suc

Another account from the front says:
Some gentlemen connected with the pres?,
who arrived here last evening from Gettys
burg, having left before daylight In the mora
ing, represent the condition of affairs at the
close of the fight on Wednesday evening to
have been still more favorablc-and promising
ol a successful issue than by the previous in
formation received. They state that the
rebels bad held Gettysburg for some time
previous to the approach of our army, and
had cot only occupied, but bad commenced
fortifying the hills west of the town, where
they proposed to check our advance towards
CluiUibcrsburg aud the mouth of the Cumber
land Valley. The, movement ot Gen. Rey-.
nolds, and the rapidity with which he ad
vanced, alter entering the east end of the
town, took them somewhat by surprise, and.
he soon obtained a prominent position which
tie rebels were fortifying. The fighting
through the balance of the day was a
ftutile attempt on their part to regain this im
portant position, from which they were fre
quently repulsed. Early In the afternoon,
both Longstreet and Hill combined their
forces for a*grand effort to turn our right
flank, when Gen. Howard’s 11th corps most
nobly repulsed these two veteran corps of
the rebel army. The repulse was so com
plete that no further attempt was made by
the enemy during the balance of the day, and
the night closed in with onr holding the po
sition chosen by the enemy to give us battle
from. Tic 8d and 12th corps also came on
the field ufter the last repulse of the enemy,
but owing to the fall of Gen. Reynolds and
the lateness of the hour, as well as the ex
haustion of the men and a desire to take
care of the wounded, it was determined
not to push the enemy for a renewal of the

Headquarters Army of the Potomac, says the
fight of Wednesday was desperate and unre

was in command. This force is sold to have
comprised Hill’s corps. During the early
part of the day, our forces failed to mnirw an
impression on the rebels, when Sickles ar
rived, and with reinforcements, turned the
tide ofhattle. The resnlt maybe stated thus:.
We advanced rapidly, and met the enemy in
force, attacked with one corps, but found him
too strong, and fell back until joined by the
11th corps, when we resumed the attack, and
retained onr ground.
Gens. Wadsworth, Barlow, and Donbleday,
ore reported wounded. Gen. Baxter is re?

Onr wounded are at Gettysburg, well taken

general engagement has yet taken place,
though a great battle will bo fought this after

Caibo, July 3,1503. f
By the arrival of the Jacob Strader we
have news from Vicksburg up to the 29th nit.
Matters there arc about os they have been for
several days past.
A continued knocking, as if of carpenters
at work, has been heard In the city, and it is
thought that the rebels are preparing a large
number of email boats for the purpose of
crossing the river, and thus save themselves
from the horrors of famine or the humiliation
of u surrender.
Such steps, however, would only lead to
their more speedy destruction, os our gun
boats keep a vigilant eye on these points.
Nothing is certainly known of the inten
tions of Gen. Joe. Johnston, but it is certain
be is not yet ready to show himself to Gen
Grant, or make any demonstration in behalf
of Vicksburg. The obvious policy of the
rebels will be to cut the communication be
tween Grant and his supplies, by taking
possession of some position on the river and
fortifying it.
There was a guerilla force near Lake Provi
dence. The Strader was under the necessity
of having an escort up. She was not fired In
