Vicksburg, Mississippi

The Diana reached Vicksburg today, where I found that the expeditionary army had come in from Canton. One division of five thousand men was made up out of Hurlbut’s command, and placed under Brigadier- General T. Kilby Smith; and a similar division was made out of McPherson’s and Hurlbut’s troops, and placed under Brigadier-General Joseph A. Mower; the whole commanded by Brigadier-General A. J. Smith. General Hurlbut, with the rest of his command, will return to Memphis, and General McPherson will remain at Vicksburg.
