Stickel, with a cifteenth sought to reinstate his line between Perkins's and Dunbar's — the latter place being eight miles from Perkins's, and the same distance from Smith's. For this purpose he divided his force, droute had been opened ten miles from there to Perkins's. The Twelfth division, which only arrived aed to Smith's, and was followed from there to Perkins's by the rest of the Tenth, a large part of t last five miles of the route from Smith's to Perkins's, was obstructed by numerous bayous.

From this report will be seen that we expended two million six hundred and fifty thousand rounds of musket-cartridges, se
