SATURDAY MORNING, JUNE
A PICTURE OF WAR
THE SIEGE OF VICKSBURG-OPERATIONS
OF THE FEDERAL FORCES.
The following from the N. Y. Tribune we
think will be found interesting:
Special Dispatch to the N. Y. Tribune.
W SIN INGTON, June 9, 1883
We are permitted to pubtish the following
extracts from private letters from officers of
Admiral Porter's fleet, received to-day :
"Is FRONT OF VICKSBURG, June 1, 1863.-
1 was in a ritie•pit yesterday, twenty yards
from the enemy's lines, on Sherman's front,—
The poor devils h %re had all their guns el
lenced, and can't fire a shot. They throw , hand
grenades on our men who are working away
underneath their forts, and who throw them
back again. You may talk of Sebastopol and
Malakoff, but it was baby work to this. No
thing ever yet equalled the work of our soldiers
in getting up to these works. You would have
to see it to believe it. All the Richmonds
would be netting to the one.twentieth of the
nine miles of work these devils have thrown up
in front, and the obstructions they have left
behind our army for six miles. If we can ever
get a reporter to tell the truth, he will write
a tale of more interest than any that has been
publitffied 'for \ a century. Now and then we
sink's vessel, ors get one 'sunk, but we will
puinp the water out of them as soon as the
town f e lls, which will certainly be in ten
“Ntait Vicwsatitto, June - 1, 1863.—There is
nothing new to communicate, eaceid the'ret urn
of a second expedition' up the Yazoo. They
returned perfectly succeFsful, having destroyed
eight transports and a large amount of cotton
and other valuables, and captured some priso
ners and provisions. Toe condition and posi
tion of our army in the rear of Vicksburg is
still good, and Gen. Grant is confident of suc
cess. I never saw such a line of defences as
are itt front of Gen. Silent:Mee nines. At
some places our parallels are within fifty yards
of the enemy's works, and our men lie dein
directly under the guns of the rebels.
"An officer has just come up from Banks
and reported him in the same position that we
are here. He has closely invested Port Hud
son, and says be is certain of 'going in.' They
are, however, strongly fortified, and may hold'
out there some time."
From Our Special Correspondent.
IN Baas OP VIMEM; May ao, 3563.
Affairs in this vicinity have come to a pause
since the memorable Friday of the 224—not a
pause of imbecile inactivity, but of vigilant
and determined waiting. Our weapon is not
now the bayonet, but the girdle of breast
works and ride pits. War is here now as
deadly and remorseless as ever, but it is the
War Demon of Famine more than the Moloch
of carnage. There is now a complete cordon
of intreuched works around Vicksburg. ex
toriding to the river, at S distance of a mile
and three quarters above the court house, to
the extreme left of the army under General
We have a line of communication, short, di
rect and comparatively unexposed to attack,
through Warrenton and Chickasaw Bayou.
The policy of our commanding officers is to
destroy ill the bridge& block 'up with felled
trees all the roads, and, in every ivity retard
the approaches to Vicksburg through the are
of a concentric circle of twenty miles in the
rear, so that Joe Johnson's argil) , of reserve, if
it should ever prove to be more than an army
of " dorgons, Hydras and Chimeras dire,"
will find it a task of some difficulty to unearth
us. There is no serious apprehension of a fire
in the rear for some time to come. Loring's
division, all that is left of it, is unquestionably
much demoralized, and I doubt Whether it
could be brought to face again the victorious
army of five battle fields. Gen. Blair started
some days since far Yazoo city, where the
enemy is reported concentrating, with his old
brigade under command of Col. limiter, and a
portion of his present division. He is repor
ted to have met the enemy in heavy force,. to
have routed him and taken two field pieces and
Gun. Osterhaus, you know, is stationed with
one brigade at the Dig Black. Bridge_ On the
whole, I believe I am safe in saying that the
surrender of Vicksburg is only a question ol'•
time. Tell me how long the besieged troops
can subsist on quarter rations and avoid the
necessity of eating shoe-leather, and I will tell
you when they will capitulate. From state
ments of deserters it appears pretty well es
tablished that , the larder is not likely to hold
out for more than a month longer. ,General
Hovey has learned from a citizen of Vicksburg
the precise position of the mill used to grind
the corn for the army, and designs soon to take
a tilt at it with his batteries. A day or two
since, as a flag of truce was being sent across
the lines, as if by a mutual understanding, al
though without any preconcerted arrangement,
there was a general cessation of hostilities all
along the line. The Butternuts swarmed up
on their breastworks The Blue Coats,
prompted by the proverbial curiosity of the
Yankee, charged across the ravines in a most
=military and =sanguinary assault ; mid
Uncle Sam and King Cotton hobnobbed together
. as though the awful tragedy in which we are
engaged was simply "sound and fury, signi
fying nothing." Gen Greene, who played a
principal part in that "fearful check" given
to our arms at Port Gibson, was on this occa-
sion visible to the naked eye, in great redun
dance of gray whiskers and. moustache. He
was of the opinion that we would have to leave
in about-five days. We have by this time ex
hausted even' the days Of grams. The bideeus
stains of battle had not yet been - - removed.—
The ' , tombless dead," as they fell among sur
ging cannon and Pleiades, still lay blackened
and rotting under the bare southern sky.—
Some had lain there two days in a living death.
One poor fellow, whose name I have not learned,
had been shot through the arm, and might
have rejoined our army, but preferred to re
main and bring water to his comrade, who had
been 'hot through the leg, and could not move.
Both will lose a limb; if life should be pre
servcd_ Ido not know that blame attaches to
any one for this delay. It is certainly much
to he deplored.
Yesterday morning and evening a tremendous
cannonade was opened along our whole lines,
and from the gunboats. It was the savage ex
ultations of a dozen 4ths of July. The war
clouds rolling down rapidly filled the air and

were generally thrown, I believe, over the rebel
redoubts, as tar as possible into the heart of
the city. From ve.rioutt sources we learn that
our shells have dolt* the enemy no little dam
age, destroying cattle, horses and buildings,
and frequently men. The women and children
are burrowing through the bowels of the city,

one of the sublimest fjiift, s ffver seen, and al
though a common oncii Melftriy, is doubtless
novel to many of yourVitati. The evening
might have been more fttbFtßifii. For the moon,
although subdued by tr i b r init'W clouds, was at
its first quarter, and idigeolicit obscured the
pyrotechnics. The first intimation that a bomb
was coming was a lurid - tibial() ill ke a ma'am
lightning from a cloud berms-40 * (1m horizon.—
A moment after, a dim .rif, i like a meteor
half aglow, could be seen s oWly climbing the
sky, momentarily visible, a Filo often disap
pearing as the "globe of.deaehr revolved in its
upward eareer. Soon after the fuse of the
shell began to ascend, the sound of the dis
charge would come swinging along the air with
a sullen boom. 'Meantime the shell can be seen
slowly making its way upward, until it attains
an immense altitude, whet e it hangs for a mo
ment as if poised in the air, then begins to de
scend slowly at first, but accelerating its ve
locity 'ill it shoots into the earth with speed
of lightning. At the same time you hear a
rushing sound, broken somewhat like that of
locomotive in the distance, and ceasing with a
sudden thump. Sometimes the shell explodes
before reaching the earth, breaking into a puff
Of flame and smoke. Then follows a sharp
crash that makes the earth shako again, The
whole scene is Plutonian and sublime. The
rise of the dim far off light through the ether
is like the fight of a soul to immortality. The
descent is like the fall of Lucifer, "with hide
ous ruin and combustion, down to bottomless
perdition." When the shell explodes just. be
fore reaching the earth, the velocity of the
fragments thrown in the same direction with
the line of descent must be frightful, adding
the velocity given by the bursting of the shell
to that acquired by the tremendous mass of
iron, after rushing thousands of feet downward
through the air. Foster's 20-pound Parrots
were moved forward last night to a position
almost within pistol shot of the enemy. Three
other cannon of IV similar description were
added to the armament of Gen. Sherman.
The earthworks of the contending forces are
fast assuming the dimensions of a second Se
bastopol. General M'Phereon has a scheme
on foot which may perhaps result shortly in
the capture of the stronghold opposite him,
but any allusion less Delphic than the one con
tained in this hint, would be improper.
The losses of the army during the present
campaign have been very heavy. In General
M'Clernand's corps, Carr's division has lost
about 2,000. That of Gen. Hovey in the two
battles' of Port Gibson and Champion Hills, is
1,568. Still the army is in fine condition and
' , eager for the fray,"
There was an unfortunate misunderstanding
on the day of the general assault, which grew
out of the transmission of a dispatch from Gen.
M'Clernand to General Grant, which deserves
a word of explanation here, otherwise a mis
apprehension may arise in reference to the af
fair. At 12 o'clock on the day of the assault,
General M'Clernand sent a wraten dispatch to
General Grant, that he had " hotly engaged
the enemy," had "part possession of two forts,"
that the "Stars and Scripos were waving over
them," and that the 'meaty were pressing him
on the right and lett flank, and that he would
be glad if the troops under the 'other com
mands would push the enemy. This dispatch
was sent after a number of Lawler's brigade
had entered the enemy's works, apparently
with little or no resistance Our soldiers were
lying on the side of the works ; our dig was
floating over the parapet. And my own im.
pression, which afterward proved to be true,
was that the rebels had pretty much aban
doned the redoubt. Yet the message was
guarded. It read, "We have part possession of
two forts." Notwithstanding these facts, I
have heard it commonly reported that word
was sent from the left that they had carried
two of the forts. That it was suppost dat the
headquarters of the general commanding, that
we were carrying the day, and that the despe
rate and abortive charge was made in M'Fher.
son's division on the strength of it. lam net
prepared to,eay that Grant so understood it.
The tenor'of the dispatch plainly showed that
General M'Clernand still felt inilons'as to the
result, and bad no thought of sending's vain
glorious or lying dispatch. These statements
are not made by way of special pleadieg, but
as facts of history which have come under my
own observation, and ought to be made known.
I am thOrOttglfly satisfied, and think the pre
vious statements will bear me out in soy Lag
that so far from there being any attempt to
create a false impression, there was nothing
but a cautious and naked statement of what

"Resolved by the Senate, the House of Repre
sentatives concurring therein, That the people of
the State of Illinois, through their represents
lives, alo express a lasting debt of gratitude to
Judge Drummond, of the U. S. Court, for ar
resting mob violence in the State of Illinois
by enforcing the Constitution and the laws of
Our country." '
The above resolution has been offered in the
State Senate and will be adopted.
The wording of the resolution is singularly
significant and appropriate. It indicates the
only way in which general anarchy can be
avoided in this free land, and that is by a faith
ful observance of the great charter and the
laws. Suppose that at Indianapolis, the tre
mendous gathering of the people who were so
outrageously insulted by that contemptible
little military puppet, RASCALL—had reasoned
in this way : "Well, laws are at an end we
see—the ordinary guarantees are taken from
us, you. want society resolved back into its
original elements, y.ott wish to force us into
violence—have your wish."
Suppose they had overpowered the military,
and destroyed the house of every Republican
oltiien in Indianapolis, as well an made the
gutters run with blood. Would not these
scenes of violence have shocked the whole land
—and yet after the sanctions and obligations
of law are entirely disregarded—there is no
barrier between the great gap and anarchy,
save the wisdom and tutored temper of the
people. At Indianapolis the traditional love'
of law and order, which has always charac
terized the Democracy, shone with resplendent
lustre, it was a broad shield, behind which the
peace of community was conserved. Do not/
tax this temper and order-loving spirit too far:

TIIE CASE 01 VA LLANDIGRAM
Blackstone, in his Commentaries upon the
Laws of England, enumerates as among the
inalienable rights of individuals :
- The personal liberty that every English
man may claim a right to is to abide in his
own country as long as be pleases, and not be
driver, from, it -unless by sentence of the /am The
King, indeed, by his royal prerogative, may is
sue out his writ de meat regnum, and prohibit
any one of his subjects from going into foreign
parts without license. This may be meoessary
for the public service and safeguard of the
commonwealth. But no power on earth, except
the authority of Parliament, can send any subject
of England out of the land against his will, no, not
even a criminal; for exile and transpottation
are punishments' at present unknown to the
common law ; and whenever the latter is now
inflicted, it is, either by the choice of the crim
inal himself to escape a capital punishment, or
else by the express direction of some modern
act of Parlianient.
To this purpose the Great Charter declares
that no freeman shall be banished, unless by the
judgment of his peers, or by the laws of the land.
And by the habeas corpus Act 31• Car. 11., c.
(that second Magna Charts. and bulwark of
our'liberties,) it is enacted, that no subject of
this realm, who is an inhabitant of England,
Wales or Berwick, shall be sent prisoner into
Scotland, Ireland, Jersey, Guernerey, or places
beyond the seas,' (where they cannot have the
full benefit and protection of the common law ;
but that all such imprisonments shall be , illegal
the person who shall date to commit another
contrary to this law shall be disabled from

Upon which the New York Express gf marks:
Sir Wm. Blackstone clearly deems exileby
force, and against law, as one of the highest
crimes against Magna Marto, Habeas Corpus,
because it puts the victim beyond the tench
and protection of British law. Hence the pun
ishmentl all concerned, magistrate or mili
tary manrie to be disabled from bearing office, to
incur the penalty of a prcrmuaire, and even to
be incapable of receiving the king's pardon,
who may have been countenancing such an
exile. $2,500 is to be the lowest penalty in
curred by magistrate, or man, who thus acts
as our drum-head court martial hive acted ; or
as Gen. Burnside, or Abraham Lincoln, is (ap
parently) acting !
Under our Constitution, which embodies
_Magna Charta in its ten (additional) amend
meats, the President, and all concerned, have
violated articles 4th, sth, 6th and Bth.
The crime against Vallandigham is thus one
of tire highest crimes that an administration
of any government speaking the English lan
guage, military or civil, can commit. If the
victim had been put into Fort Warren ' the
writ of habeas corpus might have reached him,
and liberated him; but . , to be stair even from
that, he is exiled! There is no remedy for
him For the first time, this hitherto happy
land of ours, instead of being the refuge of
the exiled Irishman, the Pole,
the Italian. the Frenchman, has become the
exiling land! What despotism ie doing in Eu

And what crime has Vallandigham commit
