erations against the enemy who were threatening New Orleans from the rear, the whole numbering about 17,000 men. See Off Record, Vol. 15, Report General Grover.On the morning of the 11th of April the battery with General Grover's division started from Brashear City and proceeded up the Atchafalaya River. The intention of this expedition was to get in the rear of the enemy and either attack them there or cut off their retreat. The grounding of one of the transports at the entrance of Grand Lake delayed the troops for twenty-four hours but on the 13th a landing was made opposite Madame Porter's plantation thirty miles from Brashear City. While effecting a landing about 250 Confederates with two pieces of artillery opened fire and a sharp skirmish ensued in which the Union men took quite a number of prisoners. The next day, shortly after daylight, the division again advanced and early in the morning met a strong force of the enemy at Irish Bend, a sharp bend in the Teche. Here

leave out the strategic manoeuvres which led up to its investment and capture. I have thus been led to recite the previous movements and marches of the army; all a part of the endeavor by Banks to carry out his instructions relative to the Vicksburg campaign and the opening of the Mississippi River. When our march from Brashear City began, the army was divided into two divisions; one, under General Grover, with perhaps 7,000 or 8,000 men, was sent in transports, convoyed by gunboats up Grand Lake, with the intention of cutting off a large force of Confederates under General Richard Taylor, who was in command of all rebel armies in Western Louisiana. The rest of our army, under Banks, crossed Berwick Bay, as already noted, landed at Berwick City, a little town of a dozen houses, and an ancient Indian mound, and then marched up the Bayou Teche past Pattersonville to attack Taylor in front. Taylor's force of rebels lay behind fortifications which extended across the bayou, but were

Yankees News from Louisiana. --General Banks has ordered, as the banks of the State of Louisiana have so far failed to comply with the provisions of law as to justify the forfeiture of their charters, that they are required, as a condition of any further transaction of banking business, to receive United States treasury notes at per in exchange for their own issues. Any institution aggrieved by the order may demand an investigation of its affairs, and show its credit superior to that of the United States. The Era says the recent gunboat expedition to Chicot Pass, at the head of Grand Lake, Louisiana, completed its work — destroying property, consisting of the saw mills and houses of Captain Fuller, the notorious "Paul Jones of the South," who was captured when the Star of the West was destroyed, and who died a prisoner on Johnson's island. The reported riot in New Orleans against the draft is without foundation.
