le we have no means of ascertaining how near these statements approximate the truth, we have every reason to be satisfied with the result of General Taylor's campaign in Louisiana, though, to be sure, we should have been better pleased had General Smith's grand coup succeeded. But we have heard still another reason assigned for General Taylor's withdrawal from his command: It is that he was anxious to pursue Banks and crush him, but General Smith detached two of his-divisions, thus placing it beyond his power. It was then that General Taylor was relieved, at his own request. The Yankee papers are in a complete muddle as to General Smith's movements, some of them asserting that a portion of his army has already crossed the Mississippi, and others urging that the gunboats closely guard every mile of the river to prevent it. They are evidently afraid that he will elude their vigilance, cross the river, reinforce Hood and send Sherman howling back upon the defences at Chattanooga.
