The flag of truce went up yesterday to Tur

who went to meet Gen. Hill for the purpose of .
making a permanent arrangement for an ex

satisfactory, but no conclusion being arrived at

The Richmond papers of- the 18th (to-day)

An Englishman, who represented himself as
the son of the Duke of Somerset, was found at

circumstances. He stated that he was with

Many of the shells seemed to burst within

of driving the enemy from his intrenchments,

We conversed on Monday afternoon with a
gentleman just from Texas and the . West who
gives us some very interesting partipplars of
the state Of affairs on his route. He had been
three weeks on the road, traveling by land
most of way, and crossing the Red river
twenty-five miles below Vicksburg. The latter
place was then being bombarded, and numbers
of the houses riddled.
At Shreveport three Yankee trading steamers
with full cargoes, came up to the town to trade.
The parties on board exhibited counterfeit
passports, and endeavored to pass themselves
off as Confederates. Both of them brought be
tween twenty and thirty thousand pairs of cot
ton cards, the balance of their cargo being com
posed of boots, shoes, and other much needed
articles in the South: -> The authorities, hew
ever, were too quick for them;and the military
commander of the post seized the vessels, put
the parties on board in prison, put up the goods
at auction, and turned over the proceeds to the
Confederate Treasury. Two steamersof Ad&

From. the various plantations along the river
below Vicksburg the enemy have impressed
more than two thousand negroes into service,
besides taking off all the mules, wheelbarrows,
spades, &c., they could lay hold of. They
stated their object to be the digging of a canal,
for the purpose of cutting off Vicksburg from
the Mississippi, and thus get command of the
whole river, enabling them to navigate with
out getting under the guns of our batteries.—
Vicksburg, it is then said, will be as it were
four or five miles out in the country. The
general impression was that they would suc
ceed in this nefarious scheme, by the aid of
their fleets, our forces not being able to reach
The Yankees promised to return the negroes
as soon, as 'they had finished their canal. The
people, however, have determined they shall
never take Vicksburg. The four thousand
men they attempted to land were driven off
with the loss of thirteen killed and a large
number wounded. Had our batteries restrain
ed their fire a little longer it is believed the
whole force could have been captured.
The enemy fired fifteen inch shell at the town
of Vicksburg. These, where they struck the
ground in different places, had made holes ful
ly twelve feet dvp. Our troops, undor Van
Dorn, are worked up to the highest pitch of
enthusiasm, and are extremely eager fora fight.
The army was very healthy, the positions
around Vicksburg being a succession of hills,
affording fine campaign ground with excellent
water. Provisions were also coming in plenti
