At such titnee B discretion, justice and moderation are comkg pletely lost sight of, the reality of their sufferings absorbing their whole minds, and bluntf ing and distorting their comprehensions. It is -* a fact, though, which adroit* of no Cavil, that our people are magnanimous, and desire to - do justice. And we are confident that the time will come yet when the- character and I worth of Gen. Pemberton will be appreciated ^ and acknowledged. That he has committed errors we shall not attempt* to deny; bat when it is considered what a herculean task he had % to perform, how stupendous the difficulties that loomed up before him, how small the force une der his command, and how long he managed I* without reinforcemonts^to keep an overwhelm0 ing force at bay, .the liberal minded will pause ? before they condemn him. After the enemy had been repulsed several times, he spoke to his troops substantially as 8 follows: "You have heard," says he, "that I was ina competent and a traitor?that it was my intcn0 tion to sell Vicksburg. Follow me, and you 0 will sno t.ho. at. wltir?)i T will call Vi/?lro_ f burg ! When the last pound of beef, and bacon aud flour?the last grain of corn, aud cow and hogs and horse and dogs shall be consumed* and tho last man shall perish in the trenches, _ then,:*nnd only then, will I sell Vieksburg!" i We learn that this heroic speech was re coived with, e 11 bounded applause and cnthusi,t asm by the whole command, liis veterans at Yicksburg will stand by him to the last. Disloyalty in Oiijo and Indiana.?The following is an extract from a private letter c from an officer of high rank in the Depart ment of Ohio, giving reasons for Gen. Burnside's r arrest of Vallandigham : "You have no ides of tho amount of open and bold disloyalty?not simply disloyalty by the Republican standard, but b}' that of any liouest man?existing in Ohio, Indiana and Illinois, among the Vallandigham party. 1* 5 must be Btopped and put down now?not six months hence-and military tribunals are the s only ones that can do it. It is that, or the loss ( J of the cause. The course of these men prolongs the war, costs lives by thousands, and I 0 tell you either they or the Government must go 0 down, and that speedily." 0 " _ : t Abolition papers estimate the amount of Dronertv destroyed bv the Alahnmn?nrl Wlnri. e da up to the latest advices from the theatre of their operations, at twelve millions of dollars. When we take into the account the injury these cruisers have done to the shipping interest t- of Lincolndom, by the increased rates of inn surance and the number of vessels that lie rot), ting at their quays the amount of loss sustained t by the depredations of these gallant ships is u swollen to a frighiful sum. h No wonder all Yankcedoodledum is mad ?- with rage, and that all the papers chide tho le gallant Wilkes for not capturing or sinking l- the offensive privatccrsiqcn. a, -? Brio. Gbn. Evans.?This redoubtable hero )6 ofLeesburg fame has reached his gallant brigQ ade of South Carolinians, on the east side ol j. Pearl river. Ho expresses every confidence, says the Jackson Mississippian, id the speedy expulsion of the Yankees from our soil. We are last accumulating an army, which will be n, led by the best and most experienced Generals of among whom Gen. Evans justly ranks conspic:h nous. Mississippians know how to appreciate 8- him, and he knows something of the vAlnr m ,'s our Mississippi soldiery. It was Mississippiant mainly wbo fought and won the brilliant battle a of Leesburg. 0f w The New York Herald wants the negroes U ,.d be crucified?says "we have no need of neC(. groes at tho North. Let the whole race be ed f t ^outh. If they will not fight, they wil do well enough to run away; but we hope thej will be caught by the enemy and never ex ? changed. The country will have a good rid dunce of them." -' "w ? . ; ,1^ ^ v^ty '> , *w i* ri tak* his time to organise and discipline bis ' forces. A despatch from Pangta says that the Yankee? and Unionists wore celebrating the an. Divers* ry of tbe occqpagon of Memphis yesterday. The Chicago Times of Jane 2d says that Grant admits a heavy loss, and. baa fallen back. to tbe Big Black to await reinforcements frour Banks* army. The Memphis and Charleston Railroad has been stripped of troops. Rosencrane is reinforcing Grant via Louisville. All the steamboatB at Louisville and Memphis have been pressed into service. ; Four thousand five hundred Confederate prisoners had reached Memphis. The officers were to go toSandqsky, and the men to Indianapolis. General Hurlbut had been ordered to prepare hospitals at Memohis for 30-.o6o wounded. Grant, asks Hurl but for 80,000 inen. Hurlbut replied that lie did not know where they were to come from. The Yankees* own figures foot up a loss of 50,000. "We have a trustworthy statement that Kirby Smith, instead of being at Port Hudson, has occupied Milliken's Bend with 10,000 men, in order to cut off Grant supplies. It is reported that Jackson's cavalry had cut their way through to Vicksburg. Mobile, Juno 9.?A private despatch from Jackson, dated yesterday, says that Vicksburg is all right, and thattKirby Smith is in possession of Milliken's Bend. The Latest. Jackson, Juno 9.?Our scouts report the enemy's pickets to be ten miles doep between the Big Black and Vicksburg. Every means of approach is closely guarded, and the greatest courage and care arc neccessary in order to reach .Vicksburg. Grant communicates with the fleet by signal lights, which were soon l?st night constantly. The signalizng, it is thought* betokens a movement or a renewal of the assult. The roar of the enemy's mortars, at intervals of two seconds, lias been heard all night, and aud is continuous this morning. An officer captured by Grant's pickets, but who subsequently escaped, arrived hero this morning. He reports that the Yankae army is much depressed by the knowledge that Geucral Johnston is massing a heavy force in their rear, while certain death stands before them in front. Their officers say that certain death or annihilation awaits them. The following jeu d? esprit is a little coarse, but it truly represents the position to which Lincoln and Seward have degraded the model Republic. by the atlantic telegraph.

Counterfeits from a New Quarter.?We learn that some new counterfeits of Confederate notes, of the denomination of 5, 10, 20 , and 50 dollars, recently put in circulation here have, through the energy of officer Hicks, been traced to some of the steamers which have lately reached this port from Nassau. Two individuals, who were found to have a quantity of the spurious bills on their persons, hare been arrested. The vigilant eye of the detective is now resting upon other parties suspected of j. the grave crime.. The counterfeits are tolerably well executed, and our people will do well to be on their guard.?[.Charleston Mercury. Anotheh Traitor.?The Chattanooga Rebel is informed that John J.
