Kirby Smith had taken the whole of Taylor's force to go against Steele in Arkansas, except Polignac's division, reduced to about 2000 men, and Green's division of cavalry augmented by a fresh brigade from Texas, and now commanded by General John A. Wharton, of Tennessee fame. The road on which Banks was marching twice crosses the western arm of the Red River, called Cane River, the second time at Monette's Ferry, thirty-six miles below Natchitoches. Here Bee, with four brigades and four batteries, had taken up a position to contest the passage, while Wharton and Polignac (to use Taylor's expression) worried Banks's rear. On the 23d Emory Franklin having been wounded on the 8th. sent Birge with his own brigade and Fessenden's, supported by Cameron's division, to ford the river three miles above the ferry, turn Bee's left flank, while Emory engaged his attent

We insert one letter from General Kilby Smith which corroborates everything that has been said in regard to Banks leaving the Eastport at the mercy of the enemy: Headquarters Division 17Th Army Corps, Cotile, April 25th, 1864. Admiral: Arrived at this pointlast night. General Banks and army are on the march to Alexandria. We brought up the rear and skirmished all the way. General Banks fought at the crossing of Cane River; not much loss on either side. [Note--General Banks speaks of this as most desperate fighting.] Our fight in the rear was sharp. General A. J. Smith's command is ordered peremptorily to Alexandria; troops are now on the march. You will find the enemy some 2,000 strong on the opposite side. Their artillery does not amount to much; what they have we have crippled. [Note — The General was mistaken about the crippling.] Will communicate more fully from Alexandria by the gun-boats Osage an
