Dear News.-- No news again to-day. Passengers report that no one has come through from Natchez for several days. Wo know not the cause. A few facts are certain :- that the enemy have lost heavily in his several attacks upon Vicksburg, that we havo been damaged but little up te the last accounts, and that no doubt is entertained of onr ability to hold the city against any every odds. Gen. Johnston, up to last accounts, was not quite ready for a forward move, but would be in a short, time. Any �Iay new, we may look for stirring news from that quarter. Not a word from Ar-kansai or from Port Hudson. Yours Ac. M. K. SlIKKVKi'ortT, June Il>. iHlili. I icur News :-1 send you the Mobile Tribune of the 31st, brought hero by Capl.
