rash the Captain for remonstrating with them. At the mouth of Red river I got off, and the boat went down to Port Hudson. On Saturday night I got on board the steamer Doubloon, bound up Red river. About 11 o'clock A. M., yesterday, I passed Fort Taylor where the Queen was taken. The Fort mounts three heavy guns which were casemated. They also have a raft to swing across the river to stop boats from passing. We arrived there last night about 9 o'clock, and, on coming on board, found our mece of the Lieutenant who ordered her to be burnt. This is a beautiful little town, on the right bank of the river. It has something of the appearance of Selma. Ned Langley says he is waiting patiently for his appointment.
