Pyron, to cover the movement by a daring dash along the Mississippi down from Port Hudson. On the 18th Phillips made a dash into Plaquemine, took 87 prisoners and burned three steamers; and on the 20th Lane captured Thibodeaux, with 140 prisoners. On the 21st Pyron's regiment, 206 strong, attacked a force of 1,000 Federals at Lafourche crossing, and had won victory by an assault of unparalleled daring when Federal reinforcements compelled his withdrawal. Major then proceeded t

The day after our night's march we met the regiment of Col. McIntosh, and found an excellent body of warriors, well mounted, and anxious for duty in the Confederate army. To-day we are en route for Camp Jackson, and expect in two days more to be inspected by Gen. McCulloch. We have no sickness of any seriousness. Yours truly, B. Warren Stone,Colonel Commanding.
