des until 10 A. M., by which time the enemy had been driven back two or three miles, but, unfortunately, the gallant General Williams, while cheering on his men, received a Minie ball through his heart. General Williams had informed Lieutenant-Commander Ransom the evening before of his plans, and requested him not to fire a gun until he notified him; and when he did so, our gun-boats — the Kineo and Katahdin--opened with fine effect, throwing their shells directly in the midst of the enemy, producing great dismay and confusion among them. Lieutenant Ransom had an officer on the State house, which overlooks the adjacent country, and could direct the fire of every shell. As soon as the enemy was repulsed, Commander Porter, with the gun-boats, went up stream after the ram Arkansas, which was lying about five miles above, apparently afraid to take her share in the conflict, according to the preconcerted plan. As he came within gunshot he opened on her, and probably soon disabled

The report that the enemy were approaching Baton Rouge for the purpose of attacking tew their shells right into the midst of the Confederate lines, causing great dismay. Lieut.-Commander Ransom, commanding the Kineo, had an officer stationed on the State-house, who directed the fiams in defeating General Breckenridge. particularly to Lieutenant Roe of the Katahdin and Lieutenant Ransom of the Kineo, who threw the enemy's ranks into confusion by the remarkable accuracy of the H.

daylight next morning. General Franklin then ordered General Ransom to send a brigade, or a division if he saw fit. The br division would better carry out General Banks' views; but Ransom sent a brigade, with which General Lee was satisfied. N better. Colonel W. J. Landrum, commanding 4th brigade of Ransom's division, in a report to that officer, says: My men haved soon? General Lee insists on pushing ahead.

the new campaign. Having been charged by the President with duties not immediately connected with military operations, but which were deemed important and required my personal attention at New Orleans, the organization of the troops of my command assigned to the expedition was intrusted to Major-General W. B. Franklin. The main body of his command, consisting of the 19th corps--except Grover's division at Madisonville, which was to join him — and one division of the 13th corps, under General Ransom, were at this time on Berwick's Bay, between Berwick City and Franklin, on the Bayou Teche, directly on the line of march for Alexandria and Shreveport. Small garrisons were left at Brownsville and Matagorda Bay, in Texas--positions which, under instructions from the President and subsequently from Lieutenant-General Grant, were not to be abandoned — at New Orleans and at Port Hudson, which was threatened by a vigorous and active enemy.
