All persons probably mil agree, whatever, isay be or has been the result at Vicksburg, that for the last week, the public have only had "s confused jargon of telegraphic dis patches concerning affair* in that region." ? ?? ? ???- .mm -xm-.h/ j j" ? _j. ? ?? The young man recently killed by a military guard, near Port Tobacco, M i., when he was resisting the guard, was Charles Hume, for merly a clerk in a grocery store in vVasbington. The steamer Great Eastern has arrived at New York, bringing nine hundred passengers. The police are on the track of the robbers who stole a quantity of sill, s lately from the store of W. M.

More than four thousand emigrants from Great Britain and Germany arrived in New York last Monday. Green Peas and Strawberries are now in market, every day?prices as before quoted? and, consequently, purchasers but few. The folly of pa}'ifig an extravagant price for an early pea, or a half ripe strawberry, is nearly exploded. There was another public meeting last night, which was addressed by J. W. Hunnicut, W. D, Massey, G. S. Miner and H. S. Martin. A steamboat was to leave Washington this morning for Dumfries, to take "voters of the \ Seventh Congressional district," to that pre cinct. _ Fresh fish in the market are scarce and high.

On steamboats, in ho tels, at private houses, a ad at the tables of friends ahe "nabbed" whatever she could get. The last thing she laid her hands or} was a no- , nenity, known as her husband's. He caught j ! her in the act of abstracting an exquisite sut of j diamonds, rubies and pearls from the private j apartment of a lady, with whom she thus dis- j covered his acquaintai.ce had been too inti- ! mate. Imagine the renconter. The woman at once in the aspect of the injured wife and the detected thief; the fail contralto voiced syren who enticed the husband and irretrieva j bly involved herself; the florid, yellow-whis I kered youngster, who, in the same breath, de? 1 tec-ted and was detected, would have furnished i an impressive tableau, (say in the third scene,) j if not a legitimately triumphant denoument.? | It was nobody's fault that the police did not get hold of the matter. Husband, wife and, 'lady75 agreed upon a mutual reconciliation, and each has now determined upon keeping himself to himself, and furthering by his own ! unaided powers the success of his own little arrangements." ? i A dispatch from Washington to the New York Po3t, says: It is pretty certain that the enrolment act will be carried out according to the letter of the law. Prominent gentlemen from New York and Pennsylvania have made representations to the President and War De partment that anything looking at all like an attempt fco evade a plain provision of the act, would have a damaging effect among the people.

Large bodies of his troops are reported to be moving south in the direction of Mississippi. Most of their force has been withdrawn beyond Duck river. It is believed that Gen. Rosecrans is about commencing active operations. A successful cavalry expedition has been made by Colonel Wilder to within a few mil's of Mc Minnville. He destroyed a Confederate cavalry camp, and captured a number of prisoners, horses, &c. The New York Tribune re-asserts that "the National army will be reinforced by many African regiments raised in this region, and that these will before long suffice to garrison the important points and guard the lines the whole length. This has long been known to he a favorite plan with the President. The War department yesterday sent 100 deserters from Fort Columbus to their regiments." The Indianapolis Journal has an article re lating to the arrests, by soldiers, of several per sons attending the late Democratic Conven tion at that place, and states, by authority of Gen. Hascall, that !,*ho3e soldiers who atten ded the meeting, armed or unarmed, were there contrary to the General's orders." .At a golden wedding in Springfield, Illinois, on the 13th inst., there were present fifteen per sons whose ages in the aggregate amounted to eleven hundred and eight years two months and eighteen days?averaging seventy-three years, ten months and seventeen days each.
