The social bonds between us and the Catholics at the North have been severed by them. We acknowledge them no longer as our countrymen. They and their institutions have no claims upon us.

emarle Sound. Its destination was unknown. Part of the force went by land and part on schoonners, the latter being convoyed by two gunboats. It was surmised that the expedition was to attack Weldon, N. C., an important railroad centre. Mackey's Point, S. C., was this day bombarded by a part of the Union blockading squadron.--A company of rebel cavalry were captured in the vicinity of Cotton Creek, Fla., by a scouting-party of Union troops. The barque Lauretta, Captain W. M. Wells, which left New York on the twenty-fifth instant, laden with flour, etc., and bound for Madeira and Messina, was this day captured by the rebel privateer Alabama, and destroyed by fire. The cargo was said to be owned by a British merchant.--The Union forces under General Weitzel entered Thibodeaux, La., without opposition. The British schooner Trier, of and from Nassau, N. P., laden with salt, etc., was captured while attempting to run into Indian River, Fla., by the U. S. gunboat Sagamore.
comfortable bed and well-cooked meals are a great desideratum. July 27.--The first detachment of our troops has at length arrived, and their fagged out and tattered appearance was a sufficient excuse for their not coming earlier. That fearful struggle at Port Hudson has worn out Banks's forces, and unless he is speedily reinforced he will have to rest on his oars for a while. It was right pleasant, after such a long dose of Dixie and the Bonnie Blue flag, to hear the splendid band of the Twelfth Connecticut playing John Brown. We heard, too, some good news about our boys. They were, it seems, not taken prisoners at Lafourche, but retreated in good order, after repulsing the rebels twice, and they were the first regiment to reoccupy Thibodeaux after the rebel evacuation. Hurrah for the Ironsides! their honor is not lost, though their flags are. I have the opportunity of sending this by the transport Crescent to New-Orleans, but it may be some days on the road. Your son,
officer was to play such a conspicuous part. Majors was to push boldly through the Grosse Tete, Marangoin, and Lafourche country, to Donaldsonville, thence to Thibodeaux, cut off the railroad and telegraph communication, then push rapidly to the Boeuf River, in the rear of Brashear City, and at the first sound of Mouton's and Grs staff brought up from General Green's headquarters a despatch of twelve M. the previous day, from Colonel Majors; that daring commander had already arrived at Thibodeaux, after a triumphant campaign throughout the whole Lafourche —— had captured Plaquemine, with one hundred and fifty prisoners, destroyed three large sea-going vessels loaded with valuable stores — had taken Donaldsonville with its garrison — had attacked that same day the enemy at Thibodeaux, driven him with Pyron's Texan infantry, at the point of the bayonet, from his strong position — had charged and routed his cavalry by charging him with Lane's, Stone's, and Phillips's Texan cavalr

built, equipped, turned over to the navy, and sent to Berwick Bay, under Commander T. McKean Buchanan. When all was ready Weitzel took transports, under convoy, landed below Donaldsonville, entered the town, and on the 27th of October moved on Thibodeaux, the heart of the district. At Georgia Landing, two miles above Labadieville, he encountered the Confederates under Brigadier-General Alfred Mouton, consisting of the 18th and 33d Louisiana, Crescent and Terre Bonne regiments, Ralston's and Seented by a gale from arriving in time to cut off the retreat. Mouton's report accounts for 5 killed, 8 wounded, and 186 missing,--in all, 199. Among the killed was Colonel G. P. McPheeters of the Crescent regiment. Weitzel followed through Thibodeaux, and went into camp beyond the town. He claims to have taken 208 prisoners and 1 gun; his loss was 18 killed, 74 wounded, and 5 missing,--total, 97. So ended operations in Louisiana for this year. Taylor continued to occupy the Teche count

was now determined to drive the Confederates from their strong places in the vicinity of Brashear City, and to destroy their gun-boat. An expedition for that purpose was led by General Weitzel, accompanied by a squadron of gunboats under Commodore McKean Buchanan, who fought his traitor brother so bravely on the Congress in A Louisiana Swamp. Hampton Roads. See note 2, page 362. His squadron consisted of the gun-boats Calhoun (flag-ship), Kinsman, Estrella, and Diana. Weitzel left Thibodeaux on the 11th of January, 1863. and placing his infantry on the gun-boats at Brashear City, he sent his cavalry and artillery by land. Weitzel's force consisted of the Eighth Vermont, Seventy-fifth and One Hundred and Sixtieth New York, Twelfth Connecticut, Twenty-first Indiana, Sixth Michigan, a company of the First Louisiana Union cavalry, and artillery under Lieutenants Bradley, Carruth, and Briggs. A portion of the Seventy-fifth New York, under Captain Fitch, volunteered as sharp-sh

to defend it. Banks's outposts were drawn into Brashear City, where there seems to have been very little preparation made for a defense of that important interior post, and the vast amount of National property collected there. Even its only railway communication with New Orleans appears to have been strangely undefended, and it was not until word suddenly reached Lieutenant-Colonel Stickney, in command at Brashear, that the Confederates had struck the road at La Fourche Crossing, near Thibodeaux, that a suspicion of danger in that quarter was entertained. Stickney at once hastened with the greater portion of his command to oppose that dangerous movement, and, in so doing he left Brashear exposed. Taylor's troops found little difficulty in raiding all over the country between Brashear and the Mississippi at New Orleans. They captured little posts here and there; and some Texans, dashing into Plaquemine, June 18. on the Mississippi, captured some convalescent prisoners, and burn

Weitzel's force on Berwick's Bay was increased to 4,500 men, with a view to an advance to and operations in the Teche region. Starting Jan. 11, 1863. from Thibodeaux, Gen. Weitzel embarked his infantry next day at Brashear, on the gunboats Calhoun, Diana, Kinsman, and Estrella, Com. McKean Buchanan, who moved slowly up the bayou to Pattersonville; the artillery and cavalry going by land. Encountering formheir regiments; and when at length word came that the Rebels had struck our line of communication and supply at Lafourche, well toward New Orleans, Stickney hurried down, with most of his effectives, to its defense. The enemy easily swept over Thibodeaux, Terre Bonne, and Bayou Boeuf, capturing our few men stationed at each post; while a cooperating force, under Gens. Mouton and Green, suddenly appeared June 22. amid the ruins of Berwick, threatening Brashear, which was held by a sick Colone

upy Galveston. The plan was for Weitzel to go up the river as far as Donaldsonville, capture and fortify that point, move west of Berwick Bay, and, with the aid of the light draught steamers which I had bought or captured, seize all the waters of Southern Louisiana west of New Orleans. On the same day, I pushed forward from Algiers a column consisting of the Eighth Vermont Volunteers and the First Regiment of Native Guards (colored). They were to proceed along the Opelousas Railroad to Thibodeaux for the purpose of forwarding supplies to Brashear City and General Weitzel's expedition, and to give the loyal planters an opportunity to forward their sugar and cotton to New Orleans. I believed that I could easily hold that portion of Louisiana, by far the richest, and extend the movement so far as to cut off substantially all supplies from Texas to the enemy the coming winter by this route, especially if I should receive early reinforcements. The expedition from Algiers was command
