main portion of the right wing, of the army of the Cumberland from Franklin to Triune, we marched there on June third, leaving a small force a First cavalry brigade, to hasten with his troops to the relief of Franklin. He galloped out at four o'clock with his cavalry in the followin Ninth Pennsylvania cavalry, Colonel Jordan commanding. Nearing Franklin, we found the rebels had possession of part of the town, and had p with his cavalry, having his heaviest forces on the left, between Franklin and Triune. After a severe march of fourteen miles over a very roed a brigade of infantry and a battery of artillery from Triune to Franklin. Marching through the storm and darkness, they arrived at dayligh ceased. The troops that had marched from Triune to the relief of Franklin returned to camp here on the sixth. The Federal cavalry loss wa on the evening of the fourth. The next time the rebs try it on Franklin, may we be there to see, as Cowper says in his Johnny Gilpin. “Loc
expected to celebrate it in captivity, where, among greater troubles, champagne and fire-crackers are an impossibility. Yesterday our colonel, lieutenant-colonel, and two lieutenants, who have been here on the sick list, were carried off up to Franklin, a town farther inland, where there is less danger of recapture. Colonel Nott was as dignified, graceful, and self-possessed as ever, and appeared confident that this reverse was but temporary, and that our arms would soon recover their ascenecting an attack here in their rear is very evident, but whether they will try to evade it, or prepare to meet it, is still a question. Their sick, as fast as they are brought from their forces down the railroad, are moved up the Bayou Teche to Franklin and New-Iberia. The number is very considerable, and our surgeon gives it as his opinion that many of the men are merely shamming, to escape the toils of the campaign. This Louisiana climate, however, seems to sicken Texans as fast or faster

Doc. 125.-General Franklin's expedition. Official naval reports. United States sloop Pensacola, New-Orleans, September 4. sir: I have the honor to inforajor-General Banks, having organized a force of four thousand men under Major-General Franklin, to effect a landing at Sabine Pass, for military occupation, and requeeld-pieces, and two bay-boats, converted into rams. It was concerted with General Franklin that the squadron of four gunboats, under Lieutenant Crocker, should make hours, and a reconnoissance had been made on the morning of the eighth by Generals Franklin and Weitzel, and Lieutenant Commanding Crocker, when they decided on a fopi River, September 11. The expedition of the Nineteenth army corps, Major-General Franklin commanding, which left New-Orleans on the fourth inst., has returned wimber and disposition of the opposing force, and drawing their fire, while Generals Franklin and Weitzel personally examined the shore of the pass and ascertained the
e approach of day. At this time we learned our rear-guards were attacked; they having all prisoners captured up to this time in their possession, were compelled to divide their force, but the rebel numbers being four to one, soon captured the prisoners, killing two of their own, and two of the Thirty-fourth Ohio regiment, and taking thirteen prisoners; they made good their escape. Upon the approach of daylight on Sunday, the nineteenth, the question was what was best to be done. Lieutenant-Colonel Franklin, of the Thirty-fourth Ohio, assumed command. It appears that the orders given Colonel Toland were in cipher, and understood by no others than the General and himself. To return by the road we came all knew would be attended with difficulty, and loss of life and property; however, the course was adopted, and we began the backward movement. A few miles from this place we found two dead Zouaves lying on the road; one had been stripped of his boots and pants by his murderer, and le
is old regiment, the One Hundred and Sixteenth New-York volunteers. Next morning, at eight o'clock, the advance was resumed, and about eleven o'clock reached a favorable position for forming line of battle, in the neighborhood of which Major-General Franklin, who had preceded the army a short distance, had established his headquarters. Colonel Davis, from a point about a quarter of a mile to the right, opened the fight with a brisk skirmish, driving the enemy across the bayou, and followed uof the fight. The army is now consolidated, and Major-General Banks arrived just after the fight of yesterday, assuming command of the entire force, consisting of the Thirteenth and Nineteenth army corps, under the command of Generals Ord and Franklin. Our loss was none killed, and Major Cowan, of the Second Louisiana cavalry, and four privates wounded. The Major's wound is reported as very slight, and he will be on duty again in a very short time. The conduct of all concerned in this
reply. I should like to ask General Knox, said the President, if it is within the scope of his ability, to tell us when this rebellion will be put down. In the same manner as before, this message was received: Washington, Lafayette, Franklin, Wilberforce, Napoleon, and myself have held frequent consultations on this. point. There is something which our spiritual eyes cannot detect which appear well formed. Evil has come at times by removal of men from high positions, and there are those in retirement whose abilities should be made useful to hasten the end. Napoleon says, concentrate your forces upon one point; Lafayette thinks that the rebellion will die of exhaustion; Franklin sees the end approaching, as the South must give up for want of mechanical ability to compete against Northern mechanics. Wilberforce sees hope only in a negro army.--Knox. Well, exclaimed the President, opinions differ among the saints as well as among the sinners. They don't seem to underst
over conquered Burgoyne. Though it trembled at times to the tempest, And clouds o'er its blazonry passed, Our eagle thence wafted it onward, Till proudly 'twas planted at last. And now, as we gaze on its splendors, In the heart what starred memories rise I Of worthies with feet in our pathways, But glorified brows in the skies. High lifted — the foremost among them-- Our Nation's great Father is seen, With figure in mould so majestic, And face so benign and serene. And Jefferson, Adams, and Franklin There shine in the stately array; And there the wreathed forehead of Jackson, And there the grand presence of Clay. And battle-fields, trophied in honor, On the breast of the banner are rife-- The evergreen summit of Bunker, And Trenton's wild winter-tossed strife. And proudly our own Saratoga, Where the first of our triumphs was won And Yorktown — that height of our glory, Where burst our victorious sun. Then, hail to our sky-blazoned banner! It has brightened the shore and the sea; And so
