defend it. It is evident that the confederates regarded this as one of the most important points in their whole line of defences, and a glance at the map will show it to be such. By obtaining possession of this post, we have reached a point the most southern of any yet attained by our army away from the seacoast. We have an easy and uninterrupted communication with the entire North west, and there is now nothing between us and the Gulf to prevent an army from marching on to Mobile or New-Orleans, or by a flank movement reaching Memphis, Columbus, Nashville, or Bowling Green. An entrance has been effected into the Confederacy at a point where they least expected it, and the backbone of the rebellion is broken. You may be sure that the advantage gained will be immediately followed up. In fact, steps have already been taken to maintain our position, and extend our success. In a few days you will probably hear of more events of interest. Telemaque. Boston journal account. T
Doc. 43.-Governor Moore's proclamation. headquarters Louisiana militia, New-Orleans, February 14, 1862. The President of the Confederate States having made a requisition upon me to furnish from the State of Louisiana five and a half regiments of troops for the war, therefore I, Thomas O. Moore, Governor of the State of Louisiana, do hereby proclaim that volunteers will be received in accordance with the President's proclamation. Volunteers will be received by companies, battalionsn sixty-four four privates. Regiments must contain not less than ten companies, and battalions not less than four companies. Commanding officers will report as soon as their respective commands are organized, to Adjutant-General M. Grivot, New-Orleans. The troops will be mustered into service at convenient camps, and will then be clothed, supplied and armed by the confederate government. Each soldier will receive from the confederate government a bounty of fifty dollars when his regimen
ould throw open the public stores to all who would take them. The excitement continued through Sunday night, constantly gaining strength, aided by the destruction of two gunboats at the wharf, which were in process of construction, two fine New-Orleans packets, the James Woods and James Johnson, having been taken for that purpose. The retreating army of Gen. Johnston continued its march, encamping by regiments at convenient points outside of the city. Monday morning the drama opened in trmed and undisciplined citizens do before a foe advancing by land and water? Throw brickbats at them, said one. Indeed! that would be well enough, if the enemy would deal in the same missiles. The bones of Gen. Jackson, the defender of New-Orleans, must have turned in his grave, at the Hermitage, a few miles away, at such a surrender. A few months before, on urgent call, every man who had a rifle or double-barrel gun, had brought it forward and given it up for army service. Not fift
the object or what the result of the flag of truce I do not know. The evacuation of the place commenced a week ago to-day. It was carried on rapidly. Every wagon within miles around was impressed to transport stores and ammunition to the depot of the Mobile and Ohio Railroad--a distance of about three miles. Civilians were entirely excluded from the camp on and after the twenty-fifth ult. Gen. Polk left Columbus on Thursday, the twenty-seventh, for some point South, supposed to be New-Orleans. By Sunday last all the infantry had gone. Gen. Cheatham then departed, leaving the fort in charge of about one thousand three hundred cavalry, with instructions to burn the camp and fly on the approach of the Federals. This last command left on Monday morning, having destroyed everything on the previous night. They set fire to all the stables, and burned eighteen thousand bushels of corn, and about five thousand tons of hay. They also burned a quantity of stores which had been left

Richmond, Capt. Howes, of the Black Prince, and your correspondent, were the only guests. We also had a prisoner from New-Orleans, who was to be landed at Mississippi City, and allowed to return to New-Orleans. After the embarkation of the troops New-Orleans. After the embarkation of the troops a considerable delay occurred in getting up steam, so that it was half-past 3 when we got under way. In about an hour we arrived at our destination, and the draft of the Calhoun being only six feet and a half, we were able to run directly up to the most of the gulf-towns of Mississippi, it is of very little consequence except as a resort for the wealthy citizens of New-Orleans in summer. The houses are stretched along the beach, and some of them are fine residences. In a straight line fromeft he followed at the rear. He was the last man to cross the pier and the last man to get aboard the Calhoun. The New-Orleans papers, with their usual conscientious regard for the truth, will probably have an account of a splendid battle at Mis
row escape at the time. The tree-tops bear the evidence of the way the shot and shells flew around. Large limbs were cut off, and tree-tops twisted in a hundred directions, as though struck by lightning. The woods in which the New-York Twelfth, the First and Second Michigan, and the Massachusetts First went down has all been cut away, and we can now see where the rebels had their artillery, upon the bank of Bull Run, behind a breastwork of logs and dirt. The Washington artillery, of New-Orleans, and three South-Carolina regiments, have been encamped near the Butler House for the winter, but started away some time ago. The artillery left a quantity of harness, etc. None of their tents were destroyed. Further down are the tents of a whole division, all pitched, as though the occupants had gone home to recruit and reenlist, but had not yet returned. The plains of Manassas are really what their name implies. The time was when there were objects which obstructed the range of vis

Before us was the Crescent regiment of New-Orleans; shelling us on the right was the Washington artillery of Manassas renown, whose last stand was in front of Col. Whittlesey's command. To and fro, now in my fr The men must be instructed and required each one to single out his mark. It was the deliberate sharpshooting of our forefathers in the Revolution of 1776, and New-Orleans, in 1815, which made them so formidable against the odds with which they were engaged. 3. In the beginning of a battle, except by troops deployed as skirmishe on until, from loss of blood, he fell exhausted, and died without pain in a few moments. His body has been entrusted to me by Gen.

, for both on the mainland and head of the Island they stand upon a bank twenty or thirty feet high, and in firing into a passing boat it becomes necessary, as was subsequently demonstrated, for them to depress their guns, in which event the barge alongside was an imperfect shield. William R. Hoel, First Master of the Cincinnati, a gentleman of twenty-one years experience on the Mississippi, and whom, we may parenthetically state, is now making his one hundred and ninety-fourth trip to New-Orleans, came aboard of the Carondelet at nine A. M., and relieved Richard M. Wade, the first master of the boat. A consultation was immediately held with the pilots, in which the course of the channel and the location of bars were taken into consideration. It had been previously determined down on the Missouri side of the island; and to add to the practicability of this, last Thursday afternoon the fleet shelled the rebel floating battery, for the purpose of driving it from the command it held
bales of the hay on the wharf were put on board the Lewis, and as there was no room for more, the balance, nearly a hundred bales, was thrown overboard. At Biloxi there was a large quantity of old iron junk on the wharf, waiting to be sent to New-Orleans, to be cast into munitions of war. This was also thrown overboard. In the tent of Col. Deason, of the Third Mississippi regiment, the annexed letter was found, with the pen with which it was written yet full of ink. It was written by the Lieutenant-Colonel, T. A. Mellen, and was intended to be flashed over the wires to Gen. Mansfield Lovell, at New-Orleans. It gives some information of the number of troops, but is otherwise valueless, except as a specimen of secession literature. In the Colonel's tent there were also found a number of silk dresses, giving the idea that a lady, probably the Colonel's wife, had been sharing his camp-life. pass, April 4, 3 P. M. Major--Gen. M.

Gideon Welles, Secretary of the Navy: are now cut off from all communication with New-Orleans, as I presume that Flag-Officer Farragut hanother fight; no obstructions on the way to New-Orleans. Eleven confederate vessels sunk and burntrts, with troops, were on the way to occupy New-Orleans. I cannot too strongly express my admiraed. The fleet pressed on up the river to New-Orleans, leaving two gunboats to protect the Quarans Donaldsonville, some seventy miles beyond New-Orleans.
