At 6 the division took up the line of march to the Teche and bivouacked at nightfall on Madame Porter's plantation, five miles distant. Meanwhile Banks had moved Emory and Weitzel slowly up the Teche, seeking to hold Taylor's forces in position until Grover could gain their rear. Taylor fell back behind the intrenched lines below Centreville known as Fort Bisland, and there a brisk engagement took place on the 13th, Banks only seeking to gain a good position on both sides of the bayou, and to occupy the enemy's attention, while he listened in vain for Grover's guns, which were to have been the signal for a direct and determined attack in front. At night, knowing that Grover's movement must certainly have been seen and reported daring his passage up Grand Lake and surmising some miscarriage, Banks gave orders to carry the w

mpossible to remove them without the aid of a stronger land force than Buchanan had at his command; for the men of the expedition could not have worked under such a fire as the enemy would have brought to bear upon them from the rifles and field artillery, to say nothing of the guns of the iron-clad which were still intact. The Confederate force was under the command of General Monson, and numbered from three to four thousand men. They were badly cut up, and finally moved their camp to Centreville, three miles above the obstructions, keeping only their cavalry and artillery below. All that day the gun-boats were busy repairing damages. Buchanan, no way disheartened at the superiority of the enemy's force, started up the river, on the 5th, with the Estrella, leaving the other vessels to continue their repairs. The enemy was driven off as before, but the vessel did not fare so well as formerly, a shot from the indomitable Cotton disabled the Parrott gun, killing two men instantl
ative. New-Orleans, April 19, 1863. The boasted spot of Southern rural grandeur--The country of the Attakapas, The garden of Louisiana, The paradise of the South --is ours. From Berwick City to Opelousas the victorious army of General Banks has advanced. Three battles, three gunboats and three transports the enemy have lost in three days. Twice were they defeated by the main army of General Banks behind their intrenchments on the Beasland plantation, between Pattersonville and Centreville, as the straggling tire and final silence of their guns in the face of our batteries on Sunday and Monday fully proved, while Grover at the same time was reaching their rear, harassing, engaging and finally driving them before him with such rapidity that they were compelled to make a stand on Monday at Irish Bend, where a sharp and decisive battle was fought, in which the rebels were defeated and fled into the woods. Three gunboats — the Diana, Hart, and Queen of the West--are no more.
isiana one must hunt very assiduously in order to discover a pebble, so that a train can move with but little noise — an advantage of great importance to an army on the move. On the evening of the twenty-second the advance had bivouacked at Centreville, and the weary sentinels paced up and down their posts, anxiously listening for the welcome footsteps of the relief-guard, when mounted messengers dashed into camp with news of an attack on our rear. Three squadrons of the Forty-first Massachebel army; but lo, presto, change! they passed through and beyond Franklin. Considerable powder and lead was wasted for the so-called Confederacy, and the chagrin of the baulked rebels was so bitter, that, for sixteen miles, from Franklin to Centreville, they fought us in their brave guerrilla style. The rebels fired from the windows of the house at which Colonel Chickering took dinner on the same day. At Franklin their programme was all laid out, but owing to some slight disarrangement of
