He succeeded in defending himself & we failed in some portions of an attack... We killed more of the enemy than we lost; we took very many more prisoners than lost. The Confederate army did not leave the enemy until it had tried every link of his armour... But even this is not the best report, as also on the back page is yet another terrific account of the Battle of Gettysburg with 2 2/3 columns (close to half the page) taken up with: "Latest News From The North" "The Three Days's Battle Before Gettysburg--A Complete Account of The Fierce Contest--Frightful Carnage--How Our Troops Behaved At York--Operations And Movements Of Our Army" which has an introductory paragraph which includes. Nothing seems to be known of the movements of either army since the great struggle at Gettysburg & the retirement of Lee's army about Hagerstown, Md.
We occupy our space with a very interesting account of the battle at Gettysburg--perhaps the most sanguinary one of the war--and a mass of other interesting intelligence of our army. There are various subheads throughout this lengthy account, the first being: "The Battles Before Gettysburg" which--not surprising being a Confederate newspaper--cautions the readers on what to believe, noting.

Cautioning our readers against believing too much of it, which, after all, is altogether unnecessary with any one who knows the unblushing & unscrupulous mendacity of that four sheet. The great ambition of army correspondents generally is to excel in florid writing: their statements of facts are usually grossly exaggerated; they conceal much; they invent more...

A truly terrific piece of editorial commentary which could only be found in a rabidly anti-Yankee newspaper.What follows is the detailed account of the battles of Gettysburg, with subheads including: "The Battle of Wednesday" "Wednesday Night--The Battle of Thursday" "The Battle of Friday--The Final Struggle" then it follows with: "The Fall of Vicksburg In The North" and more. There is other reporting on the war as well, including "From Bragg's Army" "The Attack on Charleston--The Enemy Repulsed" which includes 3 dispatches signed: G. As was typical of Confederate newspapers in the latter half of the war this issue is a single sheet having a full, banner masthead. Some scattered foxing or browning but causing no loss of readability. Untrimmed margins, never bound, a few very tiny & discrete archival mends at the top margin on pg.
The "3" in the dateline is penciled in as the inking was very light. Generally in very nice, clean condition, much nicer than most Confederate newspapers.
