one-half of the wounded were permanently disabled. Of the enemy's losses, he says: The result of this campaign has been the defeat of the enemy in five battles outside of Vicksburg; the occupation of Jackson, the capital of the State of Mississippi, and the capture of Vicksburg and its garrison and munitions of war; a loss to the enemy of 37,000 prisoners, among whom Were fifteen general officers; at least 10,000 killed and wounded, and among the killed Generals Tracy, Tilghman, and Green, and hundreds, perhaps thousands, of stragglers, who can never be collected and reorganized. Arms and munitions of war for an army of 60,000 men have fallen into our hands; besides a large amount of other public property, consisting of railroads, locomotives, cars, steamboats, cotton, etc.; and much was destroyed to prevent our capturing it. Of course, the 37,000 prisoners claimed were not all captured with Vicksburg; but the number there paroled, including the sick and wounded, was rep

Green next attempted June 28, 1 A. M. to carry Donaldsoles from Donaldsonville, between 1,200 Texans, under Green, and the enemy, over 4,000 strong; wherein we were bd been established, it was surprised Sept. 30. by Green, who, with a far superior foree, crossed the bayou dhe, pursuant to orders, the Rebels, under Taylor and Green, followed sharply on his track, and, stealing up,

It was now time for the Rebels to be off, and they left — all save 153 who lay dead in Geary's front, and over 100 prisoners. Their reports admit a loss of 361. Darkness prevented any effective pursuit. Hooker's total loss here was 416. Since crossing the Tennessee, 437: 76 killed, 339 wounded, 22 missing. He estimates the Rebel loss much higher — some 1,50; but he is clearly in error. including Gen. Green severely, and Col. Underwood, 33d Mass., desperately wounded. Capt. Geary, son of the General, was killed. There can bono severer test of the quality of soldiers than such a night attack, in a country whereof they know nothing and their assailants know everything; and when the presumption is strong that tile latter must have carefully measured their strength, and know what they have to do. Geary's men were inferior in number to their fees; but the ordeal was nobly passed. No regiment

Here fell Col. Shaw, struck dead; here, or just in front, fell Gen. Strong, mortally wounded, with Col. Chatfield and many noble officers beside; while Cols. Barton, Green, and Jackson, were severely wounded. The remnant of the brigade recoiled under the command of Maj. Plympton, 3d N. H.; while all that was left of the 54th Mass. was led off by a boy, Lt. Higginson. The first brigade being thus demolished, the second went forward, led by Col. H. S. Putnam, 7th New Hampshire, whose regiment, with the 62d Ohio, Col. Steele, the 67th ditto, Col. Voorhees, and the 100th N. York, Col. Dandy, was now required to attempt what a stronger brigade had proved imposs
no stubborn resistance. Gen. A. L. Lee, scouting in advance to Pleasant Hill, 36 miles farther, found the enemy in force; while some of Price's men, here taken prisoners, reported a concentration in that neighborhood of troops from Texas (under Green) and from Arkansas; raising the aggregate Rebel force barring the road to Shreveport to about 25,000 men, with 76 guns. Shreveport was 100 miles from Natchitoches — the direct road (which was taken) passing through a sandy, barren, mainly pine Gen. Lee pushed on at daybreak next morning; driving the enemy three miles farther to Sabine Cross-roads, , three miles below Mansfield, where he encountered the Rebel Army of the trans-Mississippi, under Kirby Smith, Dick Taylor, Mouton, and Green, numbering not less than 20,000 men. Here Banks, reaching our front at 1 1/2 P. M., found our men in line of battle, the skirmishers hotly engaged; the main body of the foe hidden in pine woods behind the crest of a hill, across which ran the onl
