Additional War News.
We clip tho following interesting and
important news from the telegraphic col
urns of (ho daily Kacramento Union, of
date July 1.1th.
Chicago, 1 1th. The following interesting
rebel .statement of the battle of Gettys
burg 1ms been received :
" Murtinsburg, (5th. On Saturday night
our center fell back, drawing the enemy
from their works' Generals Kwell anil
Loustrecl Hanked thu enemy nnd gained
the heights. Yesterday the enemy were
routed. Lee captured -10,000 prisoners."
The Richmond JCnnuirer of July 8lh ac
knowledges a loss of ten thousand in the
battle, nnd says the Yankee army, estima
ted at a hiindied and seventy live thousand
men, was badly whipped and forty thou
sand prisoners taken.
The Ditpntch of July 8lh contains a
leader on the battle of Gettysburg, mid
says : " We led well assured that (ien. Lee.
I alter lie lias met thu enemy iu a pitchcil
battle, has inflicted u terrible defeat upon
. them." The Dnjutlth alludes to a tele
graphic di.qiatch iiiiuoiincimr that a great
I battle had been fought on .Sunday last.
July full, in which the Yankees were
I whipped with u loss of sixty thousand men,
, and winds up wilh the lollowiug : " We
i already begin to see glimpses of peace, if
telegram proves hall true ; but let us have
no peace which we don't dictate ourselves."
Xewbern, (X. ('.), !)th.-The Legisla
tare is now in session acting on financial
matters. The Haleigh lltghler (rebel
prim) in referring to this extra session,
says there is misehiel brewing which " bodes
no irood" to the confederate cause, mid the
history of that legislature does not war
rant us in anticipating uryihiug but mis
chief at its bunds. Members from Castle
county have come out in favor of the Con
stitution mid the Union. Tho Wilmington
Journal says other members intend advoca
ting thu same cause.
Washington, lOlh. The Surgeon Gen
oral lias official intelligence that in tho De
partment of the Gulf tlie ratio of siifiering
from malarious discuses mid death bat ween
the white mid colored soldiers is about
eleven white to one colored.
Chicago, 20th. Later details of the
Union movement now progressing iu North
Carolina have been received by way of
Fortress Monroe. The dissatisfaction with
thu rebel Government is increasing daily,
and overtures to Major Geo. Foster in
crease in boldness. Not long since the
Ividcigli Slttiitliml contained an able article,
believed to have been written by r. A.
Graham, taking the strongest grounds
ugaitist the right of secession and advoca
ting tho duty of tho Federal Government
to defend its own existence by force when
secession threatens it. The artielu denies
that any just cause exists for tliu present
rebellion, and asserts that any Statu now
claimed us belonging to tho so-called Con
federacy can withdraw from it at will.
The same paper, in another article, openly
favors peace by reconstructing the Union,
or by seperating, if resolved upon by a
Convention of nil tho Slates. The Stnwl
nnl also congratulates Itev. H. W. Graves,
on his acquittal on thu charge of treason,
nnd republishes with commendation an ar
ticle which was made a pretext for ids ar
rest by the rebel authorities.
New York, 11th. Sterling dull at

Court House, Yicksburg. dth. Yicks
burg surrendered this morning, after a siege
of forty-seven days, terminating iu nego
tiations lasting twenty-four hours. Gener
als Grant mid Pembertoii hud an interview
yesterday afternoon. The lat note of
Peinbcrton, accepting the prollercd terms'
of Grunt, was tint received till nine o'clock
A. M. today, when Gen. Mel'hurson re
ceived the lormal surrender of the city.
Thu terms allow the officers mid men to Iu
paroled here the former to ictain their
side in mis, horses and personal property.
They will be escorted beyond our lines and
furnished with three days' rations from our
stores. Gen. Logan's division marched in
to the city nt eleven, mid at noon Lieut.
Col. Strong hoisted the stars and stripes
over thu Court House. Gen. Logan is
appointed commander of the post. Wu
have taken over twenty-seven thousand
prisoners, besides four thousand nou-com-imtutits,
onu hundred and two field pieces,
thirty siege gnus, fifty thousand stand of
arms, ammunition, locomotives and cars, a
few stores, eighty-seven Btands of colors.
Among the prisoners arc Lieut. Gen. Pent
berlon, Maj. Generals Stevenson. Smith,
Forney mid Drown, fourteen Itrignilieis
mid about one. hundred mid thirty Colonels.
There nre fifty-six hundred men in the hos
pital, half of whom arc wounded. Only
fifteen tlmus-ind of the garrison me report
ed able for duty. Their provision was al
most exhausted, and for four days they hail
been eating mule llesh. Of ammunition
for heavy guns they Inula fair supply, but
of field uminnnilon they were short. Light
caps to a man was nil they had left. Sugar,
molases mid rice were till they had of sup
plies with u little uugroitnd corn. Thu
capitulation was caused by destitution,
physical prostration, hastened perhaps by
lliu expectation that our forces would
storm the works today. It is admit led by
all that thu rebels made a gallant defense,
mid the terms nre understood to menu a
compliment, by Gen. Grant to their bra
very. Vicksliurg wuh much damaged by
shells hardly a house, escaping damage.
Our troops treated the lute enemy with
great friendliness. On both sides there is
a feeling of great relief from tho severe
hardship and suffering of the siege. Thu
Fourth of July has never been celebrated
so strongly and earnestly.
Viekshurg. f)th. Yesterday nnd to-day
all passed oil' wilh remarkably quiet and
good feeling. Thu weather is fearfully
warm. Nineteen General officers have been
paroled. Two or three days will rmss be
fore thu prisoners are scut out to their dis
tillation which is reported tohuTuladcga,
(A'u.) Many of them uru anxious not to
be paroled, but wish to take the oath of alle
giance, quit the rebel service and proceed
North. Several women and children wero
killed mid injured during the siege. Hun
dreds of houses occupied by tho side and
wounded had been constantly exposed to
shells. About 'J,")00 persons have been
killed inside tho works since the siego be
gan. The labor performed on tho fortifi
cations by both sides is prodigious. The
weight of our artillery has knocked most ot
their works to nudist iiigiii.-hablu pieces.
There were about 1.1100 women nnd chil
dren iu I Iio city during the bombardment,
who wero for the most part of tho time ob
liged to live in caves, of which there nre
several hundred. Thu citizens havo not
been allowed to draw rations from tho
army supplies, except in cases of destitu
tion, The prices of food hud been enor
mous. 1'ivu dollars n pound for beef wm
charged ; for flour, one dollar a pound ; a
high price was charged for mule meat.
The latest advice from thu interior rep
resent Johnston as retreating rapidly and
Sherman in hot puisuit. 1teinforeemcut3
nre moving to Sherman. Oilers of assis
tance Imvu been dispatched to Gen. Hunks.
It is conjectured that thu condition of tho
Port Hudson garrison is similar to that of
Yicksburg a week since. Its fall mny bo
announced at any hour. The general opin
ion here, both iu tho rebel army and our
own, is that the rebellion in tho 'et is at
an end, or at Icaet reduced to iusiguificunt
New York. Oth Speciil dispatches say
Mint Generals Grant and Meado have been
promoted tho former to bo a Maj. Gener
al and the latter a lJrigmiier General it)
