st the fording party. The fire of the enemy was unusually wild, and but few casualties occurred in General Owen's brigade. On reaching the south bank of the river, a charge was made on the rebel rifle-pits, and twenty-eight men and an officer captured. A few of the prisoners regarded their situation when taken with indifference, and the majority seemed inclined to rejoice rather than weep at the fate which had befallen them. The prisoners taken were members of Virginia, Georgia, and Mississippi regiments. The brigade was posted in line of battle to the left and half a mile beyond the ford, under the shelter of several crests of hills, the fire of several rebel guns being still directed upon them from the heights above the ford. The Thirty-ninth and One Hundred and Twenty-sixth New-York were then deployed as skirmishers nearly at right angles with the river, with orders to force back the enemy as far as possible. Sharp skirmishing then ensued, the enemy's line gradually reti

The army was made up of two divisions--Gee tax in kind will hardly be wagoned out of Mississippi to any great extent. February twentieth,tion. It is an eye-opener to the people of Mississippi, and can hardly but convince them that it iherman having taken the job of cleaning out Mississippi, we have gone and done it, making a clear t o'clock we entered Jackson, the capital of Mississippi which in its day was a very pretty place, by's lines. The prisoners taken belonged to Mississippi and Georgia cavalry regiments, with a few mst be crushed, if it takes every chicken in Mississippi.

The rest marched in one column through Jackson, into the heart of Mississippi. This was composed of infantry and artillery. This column was first confro and organizing part of his forces.at Vicksburgh, for the expedition through Mississippi to Meridian, orders had issued for that part of the cavalry, which was then scattered through West and Middle Tennessee and North-Mississippi, to concentrate at Colliersville, a point on the Charleston and Memphis Railroad, twenty-four miles from Memphis, and to proceed from that place through Mississippi and along the Mobile and Ohio Railroad to Meridian, there joining the army of General Sherman, and n both fortunate and successful in the advance. The dreary barrens of North-Mississippi had been passed, the marching had not been severe, the horses were improving

So entirely was this support relied upon, that the Federal commander has openly boasted that General Smith would be it very few will reach General Sherman, and those will hardly improve his already partially demoralized army. This Northern Mississippi raid, it seems, consists of from seven to ten thousand men, cavalry and infantry combined, with six pieces of artip. Richmond despatch account. Richmond, Va., March 9, 1864. The recent victory of General Forrest in Northern Mississippi, by which the grand plan of the Yankees in the West was so effectually defeated, was one of the most remarkable acuring his residence in Louisiana, Sherman has, by the license extended to his brutal hirelings, in their march through Mississippi, and by his own acts of outrage and cruelty, shown a degree of infamy that entitles him to take rank with Butler, McNe
and ninety-five miles from Shreveport, will advance again as soon as he is reinforced and adequate supplies are received. The loss of artillery is a trivial matter, as nearly the whole fighting, owing to the nature of the heavily wooded country, must be done by infantry. Admiral Porter's fleet will cooperate as far as possible. The extent of its cooperation depends on the depth of water in Red River. Other battles must soon follow, and glorious victories will be won over the trans-Mississippi rebels. The enemy appears to have moved his whole forces near here to crush out the Union army. According to the reports of prisoners, Kirby Smith, Dick Taylor, Green, Magruder, and Price are all in the field against General Banks and his commanders. The rebel loss in the battles of Sabine Cross-Roads and Pleasant Hill was three to our one. The lack of water between Pleasant Hill and Mansfield rendered it prudent to fall back to Grand Ecore, where new supplies will be issued suffi

The undersigned beg leave to add that it is not their intention to import articles of luxury, or indeed, any articles not necessary for the public use, and for the comfort of the troops from their respective States, in military service. April, 1864. J. E. Brown, Governor of Georgia. Charles Clark, Governor of Mississippi. T. H. Watts, Governor of Alabama. T. B. Vance, Governor of North-Carolina. Correspondence. Executive Department, Milledgeville, May 9, 1864. I have purchased thirty thousand soldiers' blankets for the State of Georgia, now in the Islands, and have to send out cotton to pay for them. The steamer Little Ada, chartered by the State, has been loaded for three weeks with about three hundred bales of cotton ready for sea. She lies thirty miles from Charleston. I ask clearance f

If the war are highly creditable to our troops, exhibiting energy and vigilance combined with the habitual gallantry which they have taught us to expect on all occasions. We have been cheered by important and valuable successes in Florida, Northern Mississippi, Western Tennessee and Kentucky, Western Louisiana, and Eastern North-Carolina, reflecting the highest honor on the skill and conduct of our commanders, and on the incomparable soldiers whom it is their privilege to lead.
