POETRY. Why Does Friendship Fade? Oh! tell me why our purest joys Change with each fleeting day ? Why is it that our brightest hopes Are doomed to fade away ? - Why do the friends we cherished long, Through sorrow's gloomy night, Reject our kindness now, and take In other hearts delight ? »< Oh! why do those we loved so well, Lured by a gilded name, Resign all claims to purer joys In search of wealth and fame ? Why do those eyes, that beamed with love In fortune's dewy morn, Return our weary anxious gaze In looks of withering Scorn ? la friendship *it a bauble bright, A gilded, glittering toy? A gem that sparkles to the light, Though mixed with base alloy! Oh! is there no Elysium fair Where sorrowing hearts ne'er sigh ? Where Seraph music cheers th 6 ear And friendships never die ? Methinks there is a sun-bright clime, Beyond the ether blue, Where joys, imdim'd by troubles bloom, And friends are ever true; There fairest flowers will deck our path, Though thorns spring up in this,...

firghmm. J »V COALE Sc BAB& '■•"■■■ ■ — Friday, Juue &\ 1863. STW3L.-..J ,■,,',-.■'■---■ '..: "■'•,„•„ B f„S Tbe Hews. A deep and impenetrable mystery seems to pervade affaire about Vicksburg. Rumors, sometimes cheering and tben depressing, come thick and fast. The "grapevine" intelligence a few days ago was, that Gen. Johnston had fallen into Grant rear and captured 20,000 prisoners. The rumor has not been confirm ed, and as Gen. Johnston knows how to keep his own counsel, nothing seems to be known of his movements or plans. One thing is known, he will move at the right moment and in the right direction, and if success is possi ble at Vicksburg, he will succeed. We have no fears of the result. Exciting rumors came up from the Rappa hannock, Sometimes we hear that prepara tions are making for a movement towards the Potomac, and then again the rumor is that Hooker has again crossed to the south bask of the Rappahannock. But Lee, like' Johnston, keeps- his own counsel. That im...

Arrival of Mr. Vallandigham at Slielb j vllle. Particulars of his Reception, &c« . .-A correspondent of the Chattanooga "Re bel," writing from Shelbyville the 25th, gives the following particulars of the arrival and reception of Mr. Vallandigham in our lines: "Mr. Vallandigham has just arrived. He was brought to our lines by flag of truce, but the oomnjander of the outposts refused to re cognize it for any such purpose as a claim of right to send any one through our lines by authority. The Federals becoming alarmed, retired, leaving Mr. Vallandigham with his baggage upon *neutral ground. When our officers approached him he proposed deliver ing himself as a prisoner of war. This was declined, inasmuch as he was not a soldier in the service of the United States. Upon learn ing his name and situation he was, however, received as an exile banished from his State, and as much tendered the hospitality of the country as any foreigner, seeking a refuge or banished from his home for opin...

_^_^_^_^_^__^_BWMwsssuw-a-*»"--^'T?f^r^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^_ BY COALE «& BARR Friday, June 1», 1863. pif After this paper was made up, we bad te take out most of our editorial to make room for the news from the Rappahannock and Vicksburg. **~~—» The Hews. Nothing decisive from Vicksburg. A gen tleman from Selma, Ala., who was in Grant's encampment during the battle of Friday last, says the Yankee loss was 20,000. He esti mates tbe Yankee losses altogether since tile siege commenced at from 35 to 40,000. Grant thought he would capture the city in 10 or 12 days, but other officers thought it couldn't, be dene in six months. It is-thought by know ing ones, if Vicksburg holds out two weeks longer, the end of the war is not far off. Gen. Johnston is said to have an army of 40,000 men, if so, the jig is up with Grant. It will be seen from the news on the next page, that important movements are in pro gress on the Rappahannock. Gen. Hooker having fallen back to Alexandria, and Gen.. Lee havi...

Deatb of a Brave Man. % We mentioned in yesterday's Express, that Lieut.

Gambrijl's death. They stamp him one of the bravest men this war has produc ed. Lt. G. was overhauled near Bar ham's Cross Roads, Isle of Wight county, by twen ty-one of the enemy, who immediately de manded a surrender. He instantly replied, "I never have surrendered, and never intend to," at the same time drawing his revolvers and emptying the barrels of each, before he fell; eleven of the enemy were killed and two wounded in the brief space of four minutes, when - the Lieutenant fell mortally wounded. The survivors then repaired to the house ol Mrs:' Ely, in the immediate vicinity, and told her that a particular friend of hers was lying dead in tbe road a short distance off. Upon asking his na...

1 —" Ifff■?T^ * r POETRY. The June Month. The waning of the sweet May moon June's laughing face discloses, Her apron filled with butter-cups, Her bosom with red roses. The blossom and the bursting bud Are woven in her tresses, And every breeze that fans her cheek Comes laden with caresses. The birds all leave the open plains And seek the hazel covers— Some months were made for married life, But June was made for lovers. • Perhaps you've seen a little maid With lips like rare-ripe cherries; ' We're going down the meadow path This afternoon for berries. I'll tell yon more about the walk Before the'summer closes; So fill a enp to laughing June, And wreath its brim with roses! From the Lynchburg Virginian. Raids. We published an extract a few days since, from Northern sources, giving an account of the raid into Matthews and Gloucester coun ties. Since then we have met with a fuller account in Yankee papers, of the diabolism of the fiends who robbed our people in those unfortunate counti...

The news has gone abroad on the wings of the wind, of another damaging cavalry raid in East Tennessee. After Pegram had been driven back from Monticello, Ky., as noticed in onr last, a column of the enemy's cavalry, numbering from 2500 to 3,000, came in, seme accounts say thro. Big Creek and others through Sunflower Gap. The first heard from them here they wers at Le noir's, hut it has been stated that they first vi sited Kingston and Loudon, though we imagine this to he erroneous, as we hear of no damage until they reached Lenoir's, six miles east of London, where, as one report has it, they burnt the Cotton Factory and tore up the railroad, and another that the Factoay was fired but not destroyed, but the road was badly torn up. They then came on to Knoxville, arriving at 10 or 11 e'olock Friday night, and made a sa vage attack. They wero twice or thrice repuls ed, ...

Panola, June 18.—(Special to the Missis sippian )—A heavy force of Yankee cavalry is marching on the Youghogany. Between that point and Greneda are Haith and Wallace's Yankee cavalry, who are rigging rafts to cress the Tallahatchie, with the intention of de stroying the road, thus cutting off Johnston's supplies.

%bvqsm firgiwati BY COALE & BARR~ Friday, July 3, 1863. The Mews. It will be seen from our news to day, that Vicksburg still holds out, altho' each succes sive day assailed with redoubled fierceness and fury. There is a discrepancy in North ern and Southern accounts as to the posses sion of Millikin's Bend—both claiming it. We presume Kirby Smith holds it. If so, all right, and Grant's days are numbered. We oan hear nothing from Gen. Johnston. il the better. It is the stillness that pre les the hurricane. We have rumors, said to be reliable, but i cannot vouch for them. One is, that two gades of Bragg's army have been attacked 1 driven back, and the other, that Hooker t been superseded by Meade. t?e have information that may be relied on, t our forces had certainly taken pcssessien Sarrisburg.

the same fervor I had remarked before. An hour or two afterward it was time for me to return to the station. On this occasion, how ever, 1 had a horse, and I turned up to the Wueral*. headquarters to bid him adieu. nis lutle room was. vacant: so I stepped in and stood before the fire. I then noticed my greatcoat stretched before it on a chair.- Hnortly afterward the General entered the room. He said "Captain, I have been trying to dry your greatcoat, but I am afraid I have not succeeded very well." That little act il luetrates the man's charater. With the care and responsibilities of a vast army on his shoulders he finds time to do little acts of kindness and thoughtfullness, which make torn the darling of his men, who never seem to tire of talking of him. Gen. Jackson is a man of great endurance; he drinks nothing stronger than water, and never uses tobacco or any stimulant. He has beea known to ride for three days and nights, at a time, and if there is any labor to be un dergone h...
