TI1K BATTLE (HtOUNI) AllOL'ND TllK CITY OF VICKSni'HU. On Monday list, says the coiresprn- : d'-ifee of llie Cinciiinatli Comuicrriat, in company w It 1 1 an ollicer of high rank, who paituieito'l in Hit i-ieg-, for my c.'i-i roil c, I ex imine. 1 iho balilo field around Yiekburg: Unless one under stands (he topography of iho country, it is impossible to ccmprehciid tho niegni lude t.f ih! military operations coniiect cd wit'i the siege. J'y some mig'ity up heiivi.1 i t naliuo the whole country is cut up. into deep ravines, wa-hes, g illies, and sharp aogiilai- hills The popular idea of a banle field being a plain, would be peilectly '.nlagoiuzed hero. In the assaults niadu upon tho Confederate, woiks it was impossil l to deploy n line of hatlle hence tin? charges were nude by beau ofeoluinn We examined one road over which I 'lair's division charged., and where the heavie-t slaughter drued The roa.l is l(!ca!ed on lie crow n of a narrow ridge, runs over comparatively unoolh ground along tho edge of lhu ditch, on the right face of the enemy's position, and enters the parapet nt tho .-boulder of iho bastion. Tho crown of this ridge road was perfectly coo-mandod by tho well served nriilloiy and pircisu nin-kelry of tho rebels, and to cross this point was tho terrible gauntlet of tho baillo. Tin-danger was all in fn'iy feet, 'or before reaching and nller crossing tlusspace tlio approach was comparative ly covered. As soon as the head of iho column reached this point, the enemy, 111 double rank, rose fiom behind his breast wi iksand poured a niking and tei rilio lire upon the assaulting party. The rear would press forward, but to fall before the well directed fire. The result was a disastrous repulse, and tho pro duction ot the conviction in the minds of the leading Generals that such was tho strength of tho nutural and artificial de fences of Vicksbnrg, and tho detoriniii ation if the f'orco which lay behind ilium that the place could never bo taken by assault, and only, it ever, by thu regular apptoaches of parallels and paps. This alterward was the policy of iho Federals. I5y taking advaulago of the ground, they advanced their parallel works with in a hundred yards of tho redoubts which commanded tho roads, and then restor ed to the preparation of covered road-; and regular Daps. A nap is simply n deep trench, so dug ns lo allow of cov ered npproach to a furtilied place. At appropriate- spaces traverses aro dug for tho purpose of deploying and cover ing tho men. Thcuo siqis aro dug un der tho protection of gabions. A gabi on is a hollow cylinder of wicker work, resembling ft basket, but having no hot. torn, filled with caith, nnd scrying to cover tho men from tho enemy's Gro wlilo engaged excavating. Scores of these '-nps,"hall filled wi'h earth, may bo scon around the crumbling works. liy moans of these tho Federal army was enabled, with small loss, to lodgo itself dirtctly under lha shadow ot tho Con federate torlillcations. Suth was ihju proximity that nrtilWy nnd rifles wdra considered inellicient, and llm only ef fective weapon tho rebels could emp'oy was iho hand grenade. This missile is a min.it are shell about u-o inches und a half in diameter, filled .with powder, ex ploded with .1 fuso and thrown by hand into the trenches or lodgements cf the enemy. Tho eflioor who was with me inlormed mo that the prevailing impres sion that the morning of iho -1th of July was to have been distiiitruinhed by a gen eral ansault, is (.ncorrcct. Nothing more was contemplated for that day than a terrific shelling of tho enoiny's hues, nnd preparations for a grand assault to be made upon the Gth. Ho wasAdj-it.ini Gonaral to one of the divisions, nml saw tho order issued by General Sherman to his troops. The plan was ns follows : Ten soldiers from e.'tch company .were to bo detailed to run ahead, and with as many giuinyhags tightly packed with cotton, throw them into tho ditches t-.ud alongside the ram parts, a-id tluis jiirni a compact footway over which the assaulting columns were to march. Thu plan was approved by a'l tho General olliuers, and would, had not Iho capitulation on tho 1th rendered it unnecessary, undoubtedly proven suc-cc-slul. I have already intimated that Iho principal losses of tho United States foieos in tho sicgo of Vicksburg were occasioned by the two charges ordered by General Grant. After tho sappers and miners began their work, the loss was surprisingly small. The army was then so many thousand moles approach ing mi lergwund tho strongholds of the ; enemy. Jut the loss m the two charges ! must have been immoiis". I have visit j ed tho cemetery into which has been gathered the Federal shun, and observed I upon llio ilead board of tho number l, ! li.'l". There sic acres of graves, and i yet many 1 f the hones of tho fallen ho j. roes have not been gathered up by those j appointed for that purpose. On one of j tho old battle fields we' observed in one I pile the skeletons ot seven men. Tho j bone had been washed or plowed up, I an 1 n'ere piled by an old slump, as irrev I oreiitly and indi-Tiin-innK-ly as we have I seen boulders in n stony lield. In one of I the skulls I observed the gold filling of I the dentist, as perfect as whmi first plac ed 111 the cavities. Hero and there over j a largo plowed field could bo detected j human remains. What a co nmentary j w. is here upon tho glorias of war! j Who were these fall ,'n braves? They I fought for their country's flag, put stars I upon' their Gur.-.'ral'a shoulders, aJded brillient chapters to American history, won ihe the theoretical applauso of their country, an 1,'so.far as personality is con cerned, havo served no higher purposo 1 than to enrich a Mississippi cotton field J with their blood and niuscto and reap ' pear in a rich growth of co'ton and corn, j 1 1. !s horrible to think of the blood of our I Union soldiers being coined into golil but tho next crop of cotton, hy the transmutations of nature and coir.mmg- I ling laws oftho vegetable and animal woild, will present some ( f them to tho I market in tho h it of thu gre.it staple of j the S uit h and they' will bs quoted in the price currents of Livernool by the penny nnd those ot Now Yoik Wythe cent. I hope tho ofiieors intrusted wiih the work will, at least, take care of the bones f these heroes. Inside the wasting fortifications oftho enemy, tho ConfederaU dead are buried, and their graves aro in 10 belter condi tion than Ihoso of tho Federals. Tho ladies of Yick-burg have, however, adopted preliminary measures for the reinterment of tho S luthern dead and the decoration of the places where they sleep. A visitor now to the battlefields around Vicksburg will witness wasting ramparts half-fi'.led ditches, .fragnionts of shells, scraps of accoutrements and bleaching bones all deslineJ soon to pass away, and kayo 110 traoo behind ot tho mighty conflicts which made this locality furnish ono of the most romanl'o and bloody vol ume of martial history. Where once tho bray of the trumpet, lolloftbe drum and shout of charging columns iho hurtling shell, the whistling ball, roar of artillery and the raltlo of uiu.-ket ry was heard now alone can bo detect ed, the Rounds of peaceful husbandry. Upon one of thq fields wo s.iw a littlo negro boy gathering bullets in a tin pail, which ho Inform id ns his mother took to thu city and sold ns old lead. . Tlifiro are tons upon tons of iron nnd 'lead lying about the linos ot fortifica tions which jnviron Vicksburg. Every tree contiguous to tho toftili. cat'ons has been deadened by shot and shell, nnd contains a caisson load of solid ammunition, When these missiles en tered, tho trees were jj;reen and flourish ing. Now they aro dead and seasoned, and the perforations look comparatively small. Thu Spring the farmers set fire to tho canebrakes, which luxuriated over the storied hills. Hundreds of unexplored shells bursted as the li ro .reached them, and for a time reminded the neighbor hood ot the horrors of tho sicgo. Tho old line of fortifications around which the battles raged aro from two nnd a half to ftvo miles lrom tho city. Very few minks aro left in the city ot the bombard, ment.. Old rents havo been repaired, and it is only hero and thero that a stran ger would detect anything to r::mind him of tin! fearful scenes which once "painted hell on the sky" in this Ioc.il- While around tho crumbling fortifica tion? nihiglc in common dust the remains ot tho gallant soldiers of two annios in life, enemies, in death, friends on Ihe sidewalks of Iho city the survivors ot ihe slain greet each other as friends, mingle in trade, divide profits, share losses, and challenge eieh other in tho enterprises of practical life. A NOVEL nil ESS. We used to think that thtre was one place in tho United States where the in habitants wero sufficiently linprovincial not to interfere with people, whether they wore dressed as Germans, Turks, Chinese, Hindoos, or American Indians Rut it seems that even Now York is more or less provincial, as a certain Dr M.u-yE. Walker, late oftho U. S Army, wad recently arrested for creating a crowd by wearing the following dress ; "Mrs Walker was dressed in a kind ot gored sack, fitting closely at tho w aist and reaching a few inches below lh ki-.eo Relow this point all that is visi. bin suggests an undergarment nimilar.tn the pantaloons worn by males, but fuller and gathered neatly about the ankle. Tho back is made ot broadcloth, with very little trimming, and the sack is orn Ainonted with a single row ofjet buttons reaching from tho throat down the front to tho bottom of the dress, Thero is certainly, says the N. Y. Tri'mnc, noth ing inimoden in the costume." Now while we look upon dress, so for as quo-tic ns of modesty avo concerned, na a mure mattur of habit no universal ctst'imo being immodest to the genera tioa which grows up with it, and net or knows anything else we do not see that a drew could well bo more "modest" than that of Dr. Walker. And while wo should not bko a lady friend ot ours to make herself conspicuous, by wearing any novel attire yet if she choso to wear such a dress as is described above we should defend her right to do so. In fact tho Folit-o Commissioner bo fore whom Dr. Walker appeared, while defending tho notion of the oflicer who a-rested her paid, '-Don't nrrcsl bei ng ain, oflicer. Let her go. She s smart "iiough to take care ol herself. Never arrest her again," Apropos to this matter, the. citizens of every town nnd v il nge in the Union should kuow that there is no stronger pro' tthiit they havo never travelled, and 111 e in fact tho veriest "Philistines'' as the German (itudents say than smiling or jeering at strangers beciuso et some' peculiarity in their manners or attiro. Half Ihe lime those who do this aro only displaying tl.eir own want ot knowledge of the in ii'iiers and customs of the great WO! Id. Tun Supremo Court ot Pennsylvania at its recent session at Harrisbiirg. tkcid ed 111 the case ot ElnoraMohn, ot Lehigh county, that a woman can bo indicted as a common scold. Judge Woodward, in delivering tho opinion of the Court, s dd : "As to the unreasonableness of hol ding women liable to punishment for too free uso ot their tongues, it is tnough to say that the common law which is the express wisdom of ages, njudged that it is not unrensonnblo And the Legisla ture have not changed the common law in this regard, but on tho contrary do clarcdso recently as 1800 that Ibis of lt?nso shall bo punished a heretofore." Wasiiin(!ton, June 19 Tho Comp troller oftho Treasury has decided that all mutilated national bank notes 111'tmt bo sent to tho office from which they wire issued for redemption. If the banks reengniao them ho will redeem them. All United States no'es, when not defaced more than to the extent one twentieth, will bo redeemed at tho Treasury Department at 'their full face yaliio. When the mutilation is greater the. redemption will bs iif proportion. THE CHEAT SETTLEMENT. Governor Curtin's proposition to have extra sessions ot all the loyal Stale Legislatures called lo ratify the constitu tional amendment appears to have failed. Tho Executives of New Jersey, Ohio and New York aro said to havo declined to do as suggested, and opposition has also como from other quarters. Wo sincerely regret this, ns wo believe that tho whole matter could, be settled, nnd tho. loyal portion of the southern delega tions admitted to Congress before the close of tho Bummer, whereby the agita tion would bo ended, and tranquiiility be restored to the wholo country. Such was Governor Curtin's aim in nwiking proposition, and so understanding it we nt onco indorsed it. 15ut Democratic politicians promptly stopped forward to oppose and dennuneo it. Thev alleged that it was a mere effort to avoid leaving tho amendment to stand the test of the ensuing elections, and they wero elo quent on tho point that the present leg islatures were not chosen with any reference to this isMio. Thus tho position of parties in tho pending campaign is settled- The Re publicans go bfforo tho people in favor of a defiiiito nnd righteous immediato adjustment of our domcsliu trouble Tho Democrats want no adjustment. They expect to cultivato southern sec tionalism as an available basis of parly strength, TIipJ principles involved in tho constitutional amendment nru just those upon which we can most confiden tly appeal to tho people, and had they been removed from contest by the im mediate ratification of the amendment, as vu proposed, it would havo been a party sacrillco for tho sake ot public peaco and prosperity. Now that this is prevented, mainly through the clamor of those who havo r'oiio most to prevent Congress from arriving nt tiny settle ment at 'all, wo go into tho cnjiv.ass with the nssurano ; of victory from tho outset. Wo therefore ask our friends every where to note that wo stand, as a .party, pledged to tho principles of the consti tutional amendment, which are briefly the0j 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subj-ot to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States, and oftlie States wherein they reside 2. No Stato shall make 01- enforce any law which shall abridge tho privilcgosor immunities of citizens ot the United Status, nor shall any State d'-prtve any persons of life, liberty, n prnpnrty with out due process of law, nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of iho laws. 3. Representation in Congress shall bo appointed to the population fciitrusled with political rigi t- 1. No perjured rebel who has violated nn oath us a member of Cungrcs, or as a national oflicer, .shall be eligible again to any such office. 5. The nati .in.il war debt shall never ho repudiated. C. The rebel war debts shall never bo assumed or paid. 7. No conpetisation shall bo paid for tho freed slaves. 8. No rebel war claim siial! be paid. It U against th'ero principles we now find the Democrats marshaling in every loyal State. They are issues which ap peal to the rights, tho interests nnd the pockets ot c veiy loyal mm in tho repub lic. They aro indispensably necessary to the welfaro of the country, and should they be ignored wo shall all be ngain at sea in a wild tempest of agitation. Tho rebels are now silent and subjugated Rut lot their nllies succeed in defeating these propositions nnd the enemies of domestic, pence and civil lights will onco more como out boldly with all their ambitious schemes. We do not fear tho decision soon to bo made. Hut wo desire the people everywhere to understand tho matter plainly. These aro tho great issues. No man must uow bo allowed to dodgo thorn. Thoso who are not for them' all aro against them all! They stand together nnd address the reason, the common sense, the patriotism of all loyal men. Let this amendment be adopted, and nationality will be estab lished throughout tho republic upon nn immutable apdim.nnvablo basis. North Amcrinth.

An amusing inoident took place at a music store the olhciday, which is worth relating. . A fast young woman, who was dressed more like one of our young Mississippi country lasses than a city hello, entered tho storo in question, anil nsked tho salesman to show her the latest niusieiil publications, The young clerk, mistaking her tor a "green 'y,'. handed, for her inspection, 'Hen Bolt," "Annie Laurie,'' 'The Last Rose of Summer," 1 and tho "Old Arm Chair." , Are these the latest publications yon have?" inquired the fpmale. , "Yes. madam, .those nre tho latest publicat'iDns issued," responded the sales, man..1 "Do yotuJcnow what I wish you would do with thonit" replied iho woman. "Wrap them up for you, madaml" answered tho clerk: No," said she, "I haven't time to take them now." "I will do what you wish with them, madam," politely replied the young man. ' "Well, then," she responded, ' yoit may place this 'Old Arm Chair aside, seat 'Annie Laurie' on it, give her 'The Last Rose of Summer' to use as she pleases, and put old 'Ren Holt' to kiss ing her, and let them kiss awny until I return."
