Death or John P. Boas.—W e grieve to learn
that a dispatch was received last .night an
nouncing that John F. Ross, younge^ son pi
John B. Ross, Bsq, of this city, was killed in
Pegram’s late fight in Monticiillo, Kentucky.
Mr. Russ was"a member of the Ocmulgco Ran
gers, Goode’s Battalion, and about twenty years
of age—a' quiet and amiable, but .exceedingly
leariess and resolute young man. At the time
of his death preparations lor his nuptials with
a bcautiful.nnd accomplished young lady were
in progress. Wo understand his remains are
shortly expected here.
Not a line of hews for our early edition, and
yet the mysterious hints about “ contraband
tidinga” from the telegraph correspondents in
Mississippi'are very'inefcusable, if important
events are not now in actual • progress. We
think they are. But in asserting such a belief
as this, we are throwing discredit upon our
Press correspondent who formally announced
last week that the fate of Grant’s army would
be scaled in five days. If it were sealed at all
within that timo, the wax is cool and it is high
Time to break the seal and lot us into the mys
tery. • " ■ V '
* The public anxiety about Vicksburg sur
passes that ever yet felt in any'period of the
war, and this anxiety i3 vastly increased by
tho absence of even that modicum of informa
tion which has been engaged in respect to all,
the other campaigns. The darkness is total,
with tho exception of now and then a. glimpse
of light by some adventurous blockade runner
from the beleaguered city. Every thing on
our side is, as no doubt it bhould be, tabooed.
It is out of the question that militaay opera
tions should bo safely conducted within a few
miles of the • enemy,. without preserving the
most rigid wficaia Every body must see
and acknowledge this fact, and that it alone
sufficiently explains all our ignorance of Gen.'
Johnston’s resources and movements; and yet
notwithstanding this, many persons ore ma
king themselves unhappy by drawing unfavor
able auguries from the silence. Yfe think
thero is no good reason for despondency.
Vicksburg is in peri!—tho Federals are in
dead earnest and mean to spare nothing to in
sure her downfall. But so'Richmond was in
peril several times, and so every point is’ in
peril whose fate hangs on the chances of war.
We may be well justified in feeling a degree
of anxiety, but wo do not think there is oc
casion to despond/ The letters from Missis
sippi. are generally assuming a very cheerful
tone, and we believe affairs are brightening
there every day. The favorable crops' report
ed in that State are exceedingly propitious and
they are coming forward jiow_ to relieve, tho
wants of our army and tho pressure upon the

John B. Ross, Esq., Macon, 'Ga.:
My Dear Sir: It is my painful duty to send
you the sad intelligence of the death of your
sod, John p. Ross, of my company. - He was
killed on the morning of the 9th instant, in a
skirmish with tho enemy, in which our Regi
ment was engaged. Ho was shot in the right
temple, the ball coming out just behind the left
ear, killing him instantly. His remains were
buried yesterday in the best condition that our
circumstances would allow. I gave my own
personal supervision to his interment. •
Jack had been quite unwell for a few days
preceding the fight, and I endeavored to dis-
suado him from going with me, but his anxiety
to bo at his post was so great that I acquiesced
in his determination to advance with his com
pany to meot the enemy. Whero tho figlit
Tagcd tho hottest, and the fire of the enomy
was especially concentrated, I-'last noticed him
sitting erect in his Faddlo and. loading and dc

ono inured t'o danger and' unknown to feav.—
Tho onemy pressing us back with overwhelm
ing numbors, wc were forced to retire, leaving
his body upon the field.. In a few moments,
however, ho was removed to a neighboring
farm house, whero I found him a few hours
. I cannot tell you, my friend, how much his
comrades loved him, nor how deeply they sym
pathize. wi th his family in their sudden and sad
bereavement. As his Captain, I must say that
•he was possessed of all the noble qualities that
constituted tho perfect soldier—prompt \o re
spond to every call upon him, faithful
and conscientious in the - discharge of every
trust committed to him, respectful and courte
ous to his officers, and generous and affable in
his intercourse with his brother soldiers. I
commended him oftentimes to his comrades as
a model worthy of imitation. Truly can I say
of him, that .“none know him but to Jove him,
nornamed him but to praise.” I shall see to the
proper disposition oi his effects lelt in my

the indifference of our men to the bombardment

A flag of truce this evening from Gcu. Pember
ton, proposes no armistice of two or three ho'urs
for burying tho dead. On being Informed that
owing to ttie length of.our line, and the shortness
of time ndhied, pur forces could not all be notified-,
that this would be especially true of the gunboats,
as it would take all the time proposed io nolily
them; the rebels said this made no sort of differ
ence ; the gunboats Sever had killed a man of
theirs in Vicksburg, and probably never wquld;
that Geri. Pemberton was utterly indifferent as to
whether they were notified or not; that, on the
whole, th'ey.rather preferred the-gunboats should
not be notified ol the armistice, as they were wast

story from a Southern point of view. It is de
stined to live in history as a most startling and
romjmlic personal incident of "this war.
■Orton was a very handsome man. A perfect
blonde—clear blue eyes—florid complexion-
pleasing expression of face—commanding per
son—graceful address and accomplished man
ners, he was eminently calculated to make an
impression among strangers. His reputation in
the army was that of a hair-brained, reckless
soldier of fortune. He was all “dash.” There
was little solidity about him, 1 or ballaBt. -His
dress uras faultless," and his stable Arabian.—
No man in the sorvico surpassed him as a
horseman. I once mounted the splendid black
charger upon- which ho was captured, and, al
though rather vain of my own equestrian
powers, must own to a littlo embarrassment as
tho noble animal, given to spur, suddenly
reared upon his haunches and waltzed grace
fully down the street. This trifling feature is
a sort of koy to tho character of tho master;
daring, Bhovfy,- and perfectly athletic and
manly. Poor fellowi what was he about?
Ho did not go by authority. WHatthen?
If Jt was his intention to make his way to Eu.
rope, as he alleged himself, ho took a strange
route. Why go by Franklin ? Why engage
in that hazzardous business ? . Again, he had
no gold with him to make the journey—only a
few hundred Confederate bills. Strange,
strange, very strange. I confess that I cannot
unravel it- *
There are same hints of a nature hardly
proper to be discussed. They may come out
in tnne'. It is sufficient.to say that they rclat.
tb the heart.- Indeed, from much reading and -
observation, I am comb to this opinion ; that
wherevor your friend-ia m great trouble, yo'u
may safely, enquire Who io the woman ?
There lies tho poiDt. I will moke no raids ppon
.the gentler sex, but the lact, fts stated, is true.
I may be enabled hereafter to throw some
light on this dark subject. Acdile.

FEDERALISM IN THE HOUSE OF GOD.
Tho Rev. Dr. Stewart, late of Alexandria,
Virginia, who was dragged from tho Church
altar by the Federal soldiers, gives the follow
ing account of the affair to Rev. A. A. Watson,
a Rector in Wilmington, N. O.:
i ' *. ;• Wilmington, N'. O,, April 2d, 1863.
Deo. and Dear Brother ; 1 cannot but fail to
convey in language, any adequato idea of the
scene which transpired in St. Paul’s Church,
Alexandria, Va., on tho 9th February, 1862,
but at your request, I will describe it to the
best of my ability. •
Tho sorviCo had progressed so far as tho'sC'
cOnd suffrage of tho Litany ; Rev. Geo. Smith
•waa knecling at one end of the altar, and I was
conducting tho services, at tho other end, when
a confidential agent of Secretary Seward,named
Morton, arose in tho front'of theChaticel, and
demandedThat I should pray .for the President
of -tlib-U. S. - At tho sauio timo a Captain of
the 8 th Illinois cavalry, named Farnsworth,
began to flepeat, trom a - front pow, the prayer
(or the President. Finding that I paid no re
gard to his demand, but proceeded in tho Lita
ny,-Morton gave a sign to Farnsworth, and the
officers and soldiers who bad accompanied him
into the Church, who immediately surrounded
the Qhanccl, and a sergeant was erdefed to
“seize that man if The Sergeant sprang over
tho Chanccl railing, and made several motions
as if he would lay*hold upon me, but, inas
much asl still continued tho Litany, ho hesi
tated, -and tbe order was given to take the
Prayerbook from me; thereupon the book was
violently wrested from my hand and thrown
upon tho floor. Tho order to seize mo was now
repeated; T was about, using tho suffrages
“from all evil and mischief; from tho grafts
and assaults of tho Devil—from envy, hatred
and malice; Good Lordl-deliver us;” when I
felt the officer’s hand upon my shoulder, as I
knelt at tho altar. But just at that moment, a
gentleman of the congregation seized the officer
and threw him out of the Onancel.
“Thereupon tho officers, and.soldiers drow
their sabres and revolvers, and there was jrre**
noise and confusion ; women were
to hold their husbands, oth' ' _ --•>
crying “for shat”-” oiruggling
the vrG-- _w,s 6crexming, others
' . - and amidst-it all I heard
~ • .uc of Lieut. . s tying “<lon t
tire.” I immediately aroso, and .facing the
Captain (Farnsworth,) said something, in reply
to which he said : “I arrest you as a rebel anti
.. traitor, in tho name and by the authority of
the President of'tho lJnitcd..States. I rm
nii e d “and I summon you to appear before tho
bar of the Lord of Lords -and King of Kings,
to answer upon the charge of interrupting Ilm
Ambassador, by armed violence, while in Tbe
act of presenting tho petitions of- HJSPSQpleat
IHs altar.” Ho them ordered me to taka off
the Surplice. This I refused to do, observing,
‘won have entered the Church-of God, and
Vjaajrccd Religion frbtn its altar,.and now you
■««* mmmm, .'--...a.uiatter by removing
Two -sergeants then seize" mo Hr TOem#i>
cel, and with great violence, holding a revolver
at iny breast, thby forced me out of the Church
and through the streets, .with the sui plicd on
eaJh of them grasjiing it upon the. shoulder so
tightly as to leave upon it the murks of their
bands. At the sanio time my daughter, having
left tho choir, whore she had been, ingaged-in
singing, and approaching a Lieutenant, said
“You a;o not going to aircst my father
“Yes, and you too,” replied tho officerj who
rudely seized her by tho arm, and‘forced her
through the streets to be shut up in tho guard
room of tlie 8th Illinois cavalry.
About Jho timo of greatest confusion, au armed,
company who had been placed in reserve at a short
distance from the OhurcU broko in, ami begged
tiieir officer to let them fire upon these damned se
cession woman and children. While in tho guatd
room, being surrounded by many officers, who
sought to reproach mo for violation of cannon law
and rubrics, I first replied that if I was under tho
jurisdiction of the Bishop of Virginia, I had viola
ted no law ; but if not under his authority, then I
was as'independent and tree as the Presbyterian
or Baptist, and no rubric could bind me. But be
ing vexed by continued discussions,I observed that
thero. were limits to theirpoirer,an<2 that they could
not .hurt the hair Of my head without my master’s
permission, but that if He willed it so, yet even at
peril of dcath.in five minute?) I would not allow
military power to enter the church and dictate
prayers lu the Minister of God. Gen. Montgome
ry now came in and rebuked the officers for vio
lating the sanctity of tho Lord’s day and Church;
and for going in a Church armed with weapons ol
death. Ho told them that I was a resident of tho
city, and could been arrested on a week day, and
that ho had himself reported to - tho Government
tho omission of tho prayer, and had no instructions
to arreso-me; that ho regarded their action as an
intrusion upon his own province; hoalso.said that
I had'violated no civil or military law; and that
there weic Church tribunals to which I should Be
amenable, if guilty of ecclesiastical irregularity.—
He then askcd'me to go with him to his own quar
ters, where I remained until lie 'obtained authori
ty to act in tho'matter, when he at once released
uic. When lie at first Offered mo a parole, I de
clined it, on'the ground that I would accept noth
ing but an unconditional release. When ho urged
me to settlo the whole difficulty by praying for the
President, I assured him that though it might, as
intimated, “make my fortune" 3 et I should not do
it; and that I regarded it as unmanly ia his Govern
ment to make use of women aud * children, and
timid clergymen, to brow-beat and crusK out the
liberties ol the South ; that we were ncn-combat-
anls, and should be at least tolerated. General
Montgomery thought that his Government would
disavow the whole matter. But ho was mistaken.
Ho was ultimately removed from his command,and
aff the Episcopal Churches closed—some of them
being shockingly desecrated. Every indignity was
bestowed upon me that the preBS and mob could
invent; a Union flag was fastened upon my house
and eventually I had to seek, in exile from my
family, that safety which even Turk affords minis,
tors of religion, and the privilege of worshiping
God according to; the dictates of my-conscience.

the welcome intelligence that “ our boys " at
Vicksburg arc in good health, fine spirits, have
plenty to eat—in short, “ they are all right,”
and are eager to bo led against tho vandal
hordes of.Old Abe, who now, with their hated
presence, pollute tho soil .around the “Hill
Citif,”. This is good news, and we hope it will'
h*ve some effect in allaying the excited imagi
nation.of the eternal croakers, who arc con
tinually-creating mountains from raolo hills.
From tho same, June 13th. * »” *
Night before last the hoavest firing was
heard from Vicksburg. Vo like it It tell.3 us
that heroic Vicksburg still holds out . .
Major General S. G. Gholson has issued an
order rovoking all furloughs and leaves of ab
sence granted to officers and men in the Stale
militia. Absentees are required to join their
commands immediately. '
We hear many' rumors of a Very favorable
character, but deem it best for the cause to
withhold them from our columns at least for
tho present Our latest advices from Vicks
burg aro highly encouraging. No fears are
entertainod of the fail of that heroic city. Our
loss in killed is very small—compared with the
tremendous slaughter of the enemy, it is al
most nothing. Our gallant cavalry corps are
not idle, and so far have given a good account
of themselves. ■ .
We learn from tho Oolumbus Republican
that the'following is the number of companiW ki
in the counties heard from'organized for home
defense: Lauderdale, six; Noxubee, four ;
Oktibbeha, seven ; Monroo, five. If all tho
counties in the State were as prompt and libe
ral in response to the call , and necessities of
tho State we would soon have a force^mpiy
sufficient to protect ourselves against the raids
of the enemy. Lot other portions of the State
exhibit an equally creditable record.
A gentleman who left the Yankee lines,wiear
Vicksburg, a few days ago, overheard one Yan
kco officer ask another what he thought of “tho
situation.” He replied: “If it is true, as re
ported, that Kirby Smith has .possession of
Milhken’s Bend, and that Johnston is'in onr
rear with 70,000 men, as is also reported, there
will not bo enough left of us to toll tho tale.”
From other accounts, it.socms evident that the
Yankees are getting considerably alarmed,—

One quarter pound of bacon, one.half pound

seen at a glance that the gallant , defenders of
tho Gibraltar of the West, instead of starving,
are living .better than tho.troops in this vicini

- A responsible lady residing hear Vicksburg

to get out.vshort time since. She reports that
the Yankee lino of investment extonds fifteen
miles from tho Yazoo to Warrcritbn. She says
their transportation is limited, and that their
center can only be watered from tho Missis-'
sippi river—the water does, not agree with the
troops, aud much sickness prevails, They arc
greatly chagrined and alarmed because John
ston does not attack tliein in their rear, think
ing that his delay will bo ruin to them, on ac
count of their inability to take Vicksburg by
storm, and tho constantly accumulating forces
of tho rebel commander. They have scoured
the whole country for vegetables; everything
in the way of provisions has been appropriated
by them. Sho.statCB that in consequence ol
their want of transportation, . tho army is
pressed for rations, and everything else. They
are very much depressed, and seem to think
some trouble and undetinablo fate hangs oVer
them. They would rather light Johnston now

Attempt to Kill Gen. Forrest.—We learn, that
several dajs since, supposed to be on Friday last,
Lieut. Gottld, of C’apt. Morton’s Battery, attacked
Geu. ForreBt, atBethesda Church, between Co
lumbia and Franklin, snaping a revolver at lijtn,
the cap failing; to explode, . Forrest closed upon
him, with a knife cutting him where, or whether
or hot severely, we ai-e not apprised, Gould,then,
fired , his revolver, shooting Forrest in one of lib
hips, tbe ball striking tho bone. It was, afterwards,
extracted. Wo understand that General Forrest
wrote to -his wife, in the vicinty of this city,that
he expected to*he m his saddle in ten days—which
we very muchdoubt,- -We are net informed as to
he cause of Gould’a.ns.^ault.—Hunts. Cone, 1C.
