Governor Moore did not long survive the war. In June, 1876, he passed away at his home in Rapide Parish, honored by the people of the State which he had so loyally and intelligently served. He died at the ripe age of seventy-three. Henry Watkins Allen Henry Watkins Allen, second war governor of Louisiana, was born in Prince Edward county, Virginia, April 29, 1820. His father, a noted physician, removed to Lexington, Mo., and Henry was placed in Marion college, whence he went to Grand Gulf, Miss., in consequence of .a family dispute. There he became a lawyer, and after creditable service in the Texan war with Mexico, he was elected to the legislature in 1846. Later he settled near West Baton Rouge, and was elected to the Louisiana legislature, in 1853. In 1859 he went to Europe to engage in the Italian struggle for independence, and made a tour of the continent. On his return he again sat in the legislature. When war broke out he was commissioned lieutenant-colonel and sta

Brigadier-General Henry Watkins Allen Brigadier-General Henry Watkins Allen was born in Prince Edward county, Va., April 29, 1820. His early life was spent in a workshop. His parents removing to the West he became a student at Marion college, Missouri. In consequence of a dispute with his father he ran away from college and opened a school at Grand Gulf, in Mississippi, studying law at the same time. He was soon admitted to the bar and practiced law with great success. In 1842, when President Houston, of Texas, called for volunteers to repel any renewed invasion from Mexico, Allen, who was only 23 years of age, raised a company and joined the forces of Texas, so acquitting himself as to win the confidence and esteem of his men and of his superior officers. Returning home he resumed his law practice. In 1846 he was elected to the legislature.

The battle at Grand Gulf, Miss. heavy fighting — the enemy repulsed — loss heavy on both sides. Jackson, Miss., May 1. --The enemy advanced and fighting commenced at Grand Gulf this morning at 1 o'clock, and continued until 4, when the enemy was repulsed. The battle was renewed at 8 o'clock. The Yankees captured Wade's Virginia Battery, which was retaken by our troops this evening. The enemy has been driven a mile from the battle-field, and firing has ceased.--Loss heavy on both sides. General Bowen's horse was struck four times in a charge on the enem

The ing opinion is, that the Governor need not have been in so unseemly a hurry to master the men out of the service, seeing that, even while he was writing the proclamation to that effect, the Harrisburg telegrams must have informed him that the danger of a rebel invasion was now more threatening than ever.
