OUR PARTY SET OUT FOR VICKSBURG--­THE RIDE AND SCENERY--­SCENES DURING THE
FIRST BOMBARDMENT--­VIEW OF THE CITY AND RIVER--­OPENING OF A BATTERY--­THE
ENEMY.

It has been said that the peasants of the Campagna, in their semi-­annual
visits to the Pontine marshes, arrive piping and dancing; but it is seldom
they return in the same merry mood, the malaria fever being sure to affect
