now sending the remainder of Sherman's old division, and will push troops through, if Sherman reports favorably, as fast as our means will permit. These troops go up the Mississippi river in large transports about thirty miles, and to where Steele's Bayou comes within one mile of the Mississippi. The small-class boats can ferry them from that point, and thus save the distance from the mouth of the Yazoo to, and also the most difficult part of the navigation in, Steele's bayou. There is eviter its welfare. General Grant to General Halleck.—(letter.) Milliken's bend, La., April 12, 1863. Herewith I send you reports of Major-General Sherman, and the division and brigade commanders under him, of the late reconnoissance through Steele and Black bayous and Deer creek, made by them in conjunction with a portion of Admiral Porter's fleet, commanded by himself in person. The object of the expedition was to find a practicable passage to the Yazoo river, without passing the enemy's

e vicinity of Vicksburg, with about thirty-seven siege guns in position on the river front. This is all the Confederates had till after grant landed in the vicinity of Port Gibson on the Mississippi side. Grant groped to success. Grant with his great army and flotilla groped to success through many failures. He realized that Vicksburg could not be taken by gunboats or any armament on water. He attempted for several months to reach the high lands above the city with boats through Steele's Bayou, Deer Creek, Yazoo Pass, Coldwater and Tallahatchie rivers, and other bayous in the Yazoo Delta, and failed. He then tried cutting a canal opposite and below Vicksburg on the Louisiana side, so as to reach the high lands below Vicksburg with his boats. He failed in this also. He then adopted the bold plan of running gunboats and transports by the batteries of Vicksburg April 16th and 22d, and moved his great army down the river on the Louisiana side, and rapidly crossed it over opposi

On his return to Milliken's the general-in-chief was ascending it from its mouth, one meets, first of all, Steele's Bayou, which at times runs within three-quarters of a mile oer down the Black Bayou conveys those of Deer Creek to Steele's Bayou. Deer Creek empties into the Yazoo in front of Haines'es higher up. Porter's plan was to ascend successively Steele's Bayou, Black Bayou, Deer Creek, and the Rolling Fork in orde spite of many difficulties, he had reached a point in Steele's Bayou which is only separated from the Mississippi at Eagle ready to support Sherman's movement. After leaving Steele's Bayou the navigation became extremely difficult.
