Apart from the last column, this paper is a reprinting of the July 2, 1863 edition, which the Union troops found still in standing type when they arrived.
July 4th, 1863.
Two days bring about great changes, the banner of the Union flows over Vicksburg. Gen. Grant has “caught the rabbit;” he has dined in Vicksburg, and he did bring his dinner with him. The “Citizen” lives to see it. For the last time it appears on “wall-paper.” No more will it eulogize the luxury of mule-meat and fricassed kitten-urge Southern warriors to each diet never more. This is the last wallpaper edition, and is, excepting this note, from the types as we found them. It will be valuable hereafter as a curiosity.
