ake Station, had been reenforced by infantry and artillery, and hearing that a fight was momentarily expected at Grand Gulf, I decided to make a rapid march, cross Pearl River, and strike the New-Orleans, Jackson, and Great Northern Railroad at Hazlehurst, and after destroying as much of the road as possible, endeavor to get upon the flank of the enemy, and cooperate with our forces, should they be successful in the attack upon Grand Gulf and Port Gibson. Having obtained, during this day, plentur horses, and succeeded in crossing the whole command by two o'clock P. M. As soon as Colonel Prince had crossed his two battalions, he was ordered to proceed immediately to the New-Orleans, Jackson, and Great Northern Railroad, striking it at Hazlehurst. Here he found a number of cars containing about six hundred loaded shells and a large quantity of commissary and quartermaster's stores, intended for Grand Gulf and Port Gibson. These were destroyed, and as much of the railroad and telegraph
7th.--Colonel Prince left Mrs. Smith's with two hundred men at one A. M., and arrived at the Georgetown Ferry at daylight. The rest of the command came up and crossed during the day. Colonel Prince immediately proceeded with two hundred men to Hazlehurst, cut the telegraph wires, destroyed a number of cars, four of them loaded with ammunition. Although Colonel Prince had marched his regiment forty-one miles--during a large portion of the time through drenching rain — he firmly believed that,d was about. The Register little thought that it was only thirty-five brave fellows whom its terrified imagination had converted into one thousand five hundred Yankees. The Sixth and Seventh Illinois, under command of Colonel Grierson, left Hazlehurst at seven P. M., (the Sixth Illinois in advance,) passed through Gallatin and encamped near that place. A thirty-two pounder rifled Parrott gun, with one thousand four hundred pounds of powder, was here captured, en route to Grand Gulf. The di
ow in your department five brigades of the troops you most require, viz., infantry, belonging to the Army of Tennessee. This is more than a compensation for the absence of General Van Dorn's cavalry command. I will terminate this subject with the following telegram addressed to General Johnston, at Tullahoma, on the twenty-seventh of April: However necessary cavalry may be to the Army of Tennessee, it is indispensable for me to maintain my communications. The enemy are to day at Hazlehurst, on the New Orleans and Jackson Railroad. I cannot defend every station on the roads with infantry. I am compelled to bring cavalry here from Northern Mississippi, and thus the whole of that section of the State is left open; further, these raids endanger my vital positions. When it seemed probable that the enemy would succeed in opening a navigable canal across the peninsula opposite Vicksburg, and thus to a great extent avoid the batteries established there, I directed that Grand Gu

ft here this morning for the mouth of Red river. A letter from Admiral Farragut says that Banks has defeated Taylor, and captured about two thousand prisoners. Colonel Grierson's raid from La Grange through Mississippi has been the most successful thing of the kind since the breaking out of the rebellion. He was five miles south of Pontotoc on the 19th of April. The next place he turned up at was Newton, about thirty miles east of Jackson. From there he has gone south, touching at Hazlehurst, Bahala, and various places. The Southern papers and Southern people regard it as one of the most daring exploits of the war. I am told the whole state is full of men paroled by Grierson. General Grant to General Halleck.—(telegram.) Grand Gulf, Miss., May 3, 1863. We landed at Bruinsburg, April 30th, moved immediately on Port Gibson, met the enemy, eleven thousand strong, four miles south of Port Gibson at two A. M., and engaged him all day, entirely routing him, with the loss of
d organized to resist an approach. As the advance entered the town these citizens fired upon and wounded one of our men. We charged upon them and captured several. After passing this place Grierson decided to cross the New Orleans railroad at Hazlehurst and join Grant at Grand Gulf. He destroyed military stores at Hazlehurst and Gallatin; but on advancing from the latter place was met at Union Church by Capt. S. B. Cleveland of Wirt Adams' regiment, and on the next day Colonel Adams appeared Hazlehurst and Gallatin; but on advancing from the latter place was met at Union Church by Capt. S. B. Cleveland of Wirt Adams' regiment, and on the next day Colonel Adams appeared at his front. Thus foiled in his movement toward Grand Gulf, Grierson fell back through Brookhaven, burning some bridges on the railroad and appropriating horses along the road as he fled rapidly toward the Louisiana line, pursued by Adams as far as Greensburg, La. During the same period General Chalmers was occupied in northwestern Mississippi with an infantry expedition from Memphis, under Col. George E. Bryant, Twelfth Wisconsin, supported by Gen. W. S. Smith. At Hernando, on the evening

d then it was boots and saddles, and the command was away again at a swinging trot. On reaching Summit, Miss., scouts reported that Grierson had headed for Natchez. The command then headed in a northwestwardly direction, and crossed the Homochitto river at Davis' Plantation on the Woodville and Natchez road. As this river was up, and the facilities for crossing very poor, the command was delayed several hours, thus giving Grierson time to double on his course, return to the railroad at Hazlehurst, and thence down to Bogue Chitto and then to Baton Rouge. On the 23d of May, 1863, General Banks crossed the Mississippi River opposite Bayou Sara, with an army of 25,000 men, and the next day Port Hudson was besieged on the North, while General C. C. Augur's Division of 5,000, augmented by Grierson's cavalry brigade of 1,600 men from Baton Rouge, invested it on the south. On the evening of May 23rd Stockdale's Battalion proceeded down the plank road towards Baton Rouge to reconnoite

We are sorry that the lovely vivandieres should have been incommoded, and on the part of our citizens generally beg leave to offer our best apology. Copiah rice. The Copiah (Miss.) News says: We have in our office a specimen of rice grown on the farm of Mr. A. W. Griffing, near the town of Hazlehurst, which is creditable to the pine woods. This rice was sown broadcast, and the stalks are six feet in height, with fine heads of grain. When it is known that the rice stalk is equal as food for stock to the Timothy hay, we are a little surprised that our planters do not raise it if for this purpose alone. Census of Charleston.

stern Mississippi and Alabama, thereby securing the uninterrupted possession of the railroad from New Orleans to Memphis, and redeeming the large belt of cotton-growing country lying between that road and the Mississippi river. This supposition would seem to receive strength from the fact that the Federal force is said to have divided at Morton, one column going North and the other South. By a light detour, these columns would again strike the railroad, the one at canton and the other at Hazlehurst or Brookhaven, while at the same time the Vicksburg and Jackson road is being rapidly repaired to the latter place. Several objects would be accomplished by the consummation of a design of this sort. In the first place, the navigation of the river would be freed from the interruption of our troops on this side, and in the second, the planters, assured of future tranquillity, might be induced to plant largely of cotton, which is now worth more than gold to the Yankees, while a new bas
