He has issued an inflammatory proclamation to incite the poor against the rich, and promised to distribute among the poor a thousand barrels of beef and sugar, captured in New Orleans. He is recruiting in New Orleans, and the poor will soon be starving. The enemy sent a force up to Bonnet Carie, marched through the swamp and destroyed the railroads. Official dispatches, received yesterday, from General Beauregard, states that the scouts from Oceola say that the enemy's gunboats Mound City and Carondelet ran aground to prevent sinking. One pilot and seventeen killed. Gen. B. thinks the report reliable. There has been no firing from the enemy since yesterday morning. Their mo- boats have all been towed out of range. The river defence men are greatly elated, and confidence in their boats.
