Printed with old hand-set type, the sheet, about 16x10 inches, it contains four columns of war hews, all of which was Set by the Confederate printer under date of July 3. At the bottom of the last column is' & short paragraph added by the Union conquerors, who found the type all set for printing and affixed their own postscript before, they printed the captured publication. This postscript exults over the .victory.
