er writer as having been attended with "terrific slaughter." The attack was made by land and water, Farragut's fleet bombarding the town while Banks's columns endeavored to storm our fortifications. The leading attack was headed by Sherman, who was vigorously repulsed, and had to retire with enormous loss. A negro regiment, which was put in advance, (a cute Yankee trick,) lost 600 men out of 900. Sherman lost his leg, General Neal Dow was also wounded, and Colonels Clarke, Cowles, and Smith were killed. The 6th Michigan and 128th New York each lost about half their men, and the other regiments suffered severely.

With regard to the second day's fight he says: "We have no definite information regarding to-day's operations. The news has been held back until the field is won or lost."

The Chaplain of the 12th Louisiana, just from Western Louisiana, states that Smith's forces pushed those of Banks so hard at Vermillion bridge as to capture his wagon train, consisting of 900 wagons and teams. Banks came to Bayon Sara on transports from Alexandria. Yesterday the city was full of rumors, all of a good nature; but believing them to be sensational I did not telegraph them.

At Port Hudson Gardner has the means of transporting troops across the river, but the Federal fleets are above and below. The Monitor fleet is reported below coming up. It is reported that the Federals own up a loss of 39,000 since landing at Grand Gulf. I give these as reports. Yes
