Though James river most occupies just now the attention of the public, affairs at Vicksburg are not wholly lost sight of, especially by the inhabitants of the west. Last week Friday was, we believe, the day agreed on for attacking the place, which is supposed to be strong in men if not in fortifications. Large reinforcements have arrived there recently, and it is thought that it will not be given up without a severe fight.

Commodore Farragut's fleet is ready to co-operate with Commodore Davis. Gen. Van Dorn commands the rebels, who are upwards of twenty thousand strong. The place is probably already taken.

As we go to press we learn that Vicksburg is ours.
