f the Second regiment of Louisiana National volunteers, with one hundred and eighty of his men, left Ship Island on an expedition to Pascagoula, Miss. He reached that place and landed his force at nine o'clock in the morning; took possession of the hotel, and hoisted the National flag. Immediately after this, he was attacked by a body of rebel cavalry, supported by one company of infantry, and after a severe tight, in which twenty of the rebels were killed and a large number wounded, he succeeded in repulsing them, and capturing three prisoners and their colors. Colonel Daniels held the place until two o'clock in the afternoon, when, hearing that large reinforcements for the enemy were coming up the Pascagoula River, he withdrew his men and returned to Ship Island.--(Doc. 165.) A large war meeting was held at Chicago, Ill., at which speeches were made by William A. Howard, of Michigan, Senator Trumbull, and others.--A sharp fight took place at Blount's Mills, N. C.--(Doc. 166.)

5, 1864. from Vicksburg, fought and vanquished Confederates on the Big Black River, and destroyed several miles of the railway connecting New Orleans with Tennessee, with its bridges and rolling stock, much cotton and valuable stores. Another cavalry expedition, led by General Davidson, was sent out from Baton Rouge, and struck the same railway at Tangipaha, Nov. 30. laying waste its track and other property. Then Davidson pushed on eastward, in the direction of Mobile, almost to the Pascagoula River, causing much alarm for the safety of that city. Still another expedition, and more important than the two just mentioned, went out from the Mississippi three weeks later. Dec. 21. It was sent from Memphis, and was led by General Grierson. His force consisted of thirty-five hundred well-mounted men, and their destination was the Mobile and Ohio railway. Taking a nearly straight course through Northern Mississippi, they struck that road at Tupelo, and destroyed it to Okolona. On t

iven back to their cover — the forest. It was here that Lieut. Jones, with a detachment of only seven men, having been placed on the extreme right, cut his way through a large force of the enemy's cavalry, and arrived at the hotel without losing a man, but killing and wounding a considerable number of the enemy. After continuous fighting from ten o'clock A. M., to two o'clock P. M., and on learning that heavy reenforcements of infantry and artillery had arrived from the camps up the Pascagoula River, I withdrew my forces from the hotel, and returned to Ship Island. The enemy's loss was over twenty killed, and a large number wounded. From my own knowledge, and from information derived from prisoners taken in the fight, and from refugees since arrived, the enemy had over four hundred cavalry and infantry at Pascagoula, and heavy reenforcements within six miles of the place. Refugees, who have arrived since the engagement, report the enemy's loss as greater than mentioned in my fir

three more tenders, with launches full of armed men, inside of Deer Island, and within one hundred yards of the channel.--Finding that he could not run through, he turned back, and had to run the gauntlet of the first-named tender, which chased him three miles, firing at him continually, but unsuccessfully. At length the tender gave up the chase in despair, and the Oregon returned safely. The Bee also has the following: The small stern-wheel steamer Anna, Capt. Sarazin, from Pascagoula river, with lumber, and passengers for the New Basin, reported having been chased all the morning by the tender, but unsuccessfully. Capt. S. signalled the Oregon to turn back before the latter boat reached the neighborhood of the U. S. steamer, but the signal was not understood. The Anna got in safely last night. The steamer Grey Cloud was at the wharf at Mississippi City, not having taken any troops from thence in any direction. The steamer Creole was at Ocean Springs. It was thoug
be opposed. It is unfortunate that the Mississippi coast has not been made a military department, for it is more than Gen. Mansfield Lovell can do to look after this extended field, and the vast coast of Louisiana; also it would be better if Gen. Bragg's supervision included it, and yet it would be almost too much for him, so important are his duties here and at Pensacola. The Alabama portion of the coast of Mississippi Sound is included in Bragg's department, which terminates at the Pascagoula river. Mobile, within his department is in effect menaced by the operations of the enemy in Mississippi beyond the Pascagoula, though they would have to march far inland to get across that river. Therefore, the Mississippi coast should pertain to his department rather than Lovell's, for operations from the sound coast scarcely menace New Orleans in a remote degree, separated as it is by the irrepassable width of Lake Pontchartrain. Something active should be done on the Mississippi coast,
Destruction of a Yankee sloop. Pascagoula, Jan. 24. --On the night of the 5th inst., an outward bound sloop, laden with turpentine, while attempting to escape from Pascagoula River, grounded on the bar in Middle Pass. To prevent her falling into the hands of our pickets, she was fired by her crew, who succeeded in making their escape in small boats. The vessel and cargo, with the exception of two barrels of turpentine, picked up on the west side of the river, were wholly consumed. On the evening of the 20th, a gunboat came to under Round Island, and took on board eight or ten negroes who had fled from their owners residing on the river, and carried them to Ship Island. Yesterday a new gunboat, not seen before in these waters, and three schooners, cutter rigged, were abreast of Horn Island, standing to west ward last night. This morning several heavy guns were heard in the direction of Chandieur Island. No gunboat visible to-day.

aliantly are now prisoners. The intended attack on Mobile.--reinforcementsfrom Charleston. A letter from New Orleans, dated the 26th ult., in the N. Y. World, says: There is no longer any use in disguising the fact from your readers that some important movement is about to take place in this department, as it is known to every one in New Orleans. Troops are being hurried across Lase Pontchartrain and landed at Madisonville; vessels are maneuvering about the mouth of the Pascagoula. Admiral Farragni has not come here with his fleet for to purpose, and in fact I will tell you that at parties in this city declare that Mobile is about being attacked by Farragut on the water and the troops of Gen Banks on laud. May their prophecy prove true. Between the hours of eight and ten on Saturday night last, the Admiral received the public at the residence of General Banks, in Coliseum street.--Visitors poured in to welcome and shake the old veteran by the hand, and during
rk on Saturday at 226½. John C. Brune, a prominent merchant of Baltimore, is dead. There are fifty thousand Yankee troops imprisoned in the South. It will be good news to their friends (says a Washington telegram) to hear that Colonel Mulford will go to Richmond this week, authorized to negotiate a new cartel, that will probably exchange the whole of them. The rebel General Lyon is reported as conscripting his father-in-law at Eddyville, Kentucky, and other relatives. He also conscripted Judge Repper, several attorneys, jurymen, &c. The New York Tribune says: By way of Cairo, we have news from General Granger's expedition towards Mobile. On the 15th, a skirmish occurred at Fisher's creek, in which the rebels were quickly routed. Two gunboats were up the Pascagoula river rendering valuable assistance. There is said to be a strong Union feeling in the country over which our troops are moving. Mobile has about five thousand militia only for her defence.
