THE ATTACK ON VICKSBURG Gen. Sherman's Repulse Confirmed Cairo, Jan, 11, 1803. An arrival to night from the Vtizoo brings authentic accounts from _Vioksburg. Gen. Sherman's _repulne was complete. The entire force, under the direction of Gen. McClernand, re-embarked on Saturday on transports, closely pressed by the Rebel advance, which coming in range of the gunboats, were driven back with severe loss. At the last accounts- the entire fleet of transports had-arrived at Island No. 82, on the way to Napoleon. There is nothing definite from Banks or Farragut, though rumors of their advance are in circulation. The engagement was less general than heretofore reported. The prinoipal fighting was .done by the center, under _command of Generals Smith and Blair. The conduct of the latter is highly spoken of. Our loss, as near as could be ascertained, was 600 killed, 1,500 _grounded, and 1,000 missing. . Capt. Moorer with about 100 men, attacked a camp of 800 Rebels at _Huntson'_a Mills,...

Shaksfbabe'_s Shtlock.—We find in the Jew _ishMZecorrf, ajournal devoted to the interests of American Israelites, and published in New York, a new version of _Shakspeare_'_s " Merchant of Venice." The writer, -who is himself a Jew, says the play is founded on fact, with this im? portant difference, that it was the Jew who was to forfeit the pound of flesh if lie lost the wager. The circumstance took place not at Venice, bat in Borne, during the pontificate of Sixtus the Fifth. The Jew lost; the noble demanded the pound of flesh; the Jew demurred and offered money, which was _refused. SixtUS_, to whom the matter was at last _submitted, decided in favor of the noble, with the provision that he should cut exactly one pound of flesh—not one grain more or less, on pain of being hanged. The noble naturally declined the risk; the Pope fined both parties in heavy sums for making such a wager. Thus old Sbylock'8 memory is vindicated at last. A Cutb Widow.—It is related that a man on ...

A Good Stoky.—Editors, like other shrewd men, must live with their eyes and ears open. A good story is told of one who started a paper in a western iowfl. The town was infested by gamblers, whose presence was a source of annoyance to the citizens, who told the editor if he did not come out against them they would not patronize his paper. He replied that he would give them a •* smasher " the next day. Sure enough, his next issue contained the promised " smasher ;" and on the following morning the redoubt able editor, with scissors in hand, was seated in his sanctum, when in walked a large man, with & club in his hand, who demanded to know if the editor was in. "No, sir," was the reply; "he has stepped out Take a seat and read the papers—he will return in a minute." Down, sat the indignant man of cards, crossed his legs, with his club between them, and com. menced reading a paper. . In the meantime the editor quietly vamosed down stairs, and at the landing he met another e...
