duce a disaster; at any rate, I can make them very unhappy. During this period General Taylor kept a force of artillery and mounted men in the neighborhood of Morganza, seriously interfering with the Federal use of the Mississippi river. To put a stop to this, Dana's division of the Thirteenth army corps, two brigades, was sent to Morganza. Two regiments were sent out to feel the enemy, and were felt vigorously on the 29th at the Fordoche bridge by Gen. Tom Green with his Texans. Nearly all the Federals were captured, and there was a heavy loss in killed and wounded. The Federal forces at Berwick advanced to Vermilion bayou on October 8th, and weassured Taylor that Franklin's object was not Niblett's Bluff, but his army. An elaborate plan had been made, it appeared, to encompass him from Sabine Pass and Morganza, while attacked in front from Berwick. But knowing that the first two movements had been foiled, Taylor felt confident of defeating the third. On the 24th, whe

the division of Herron, which, recently added to this army corps, had been sent to the upper Atchafalaya to watch, near Morganzia, the movements of the Southern general Green. Not being able to proceed by another route, Banks had decided to ascend ation, moreover, might bear upon his resolution. The division of Herron, which he had, as we have said, established at Morganzia on the Mississippi to observe the country through which the upper Atchafalaya flows, had met with a severe check: Genere had posted himself, with two regiments of infantry numbering about six hundred men and two cannon, at nine miles from Morganzia. He had placed his two hundred and fifty cavalry, under Major Montgomery, more to the westward, near the Atchafalaya. t of the Thirteenth corps), commanded by General Dana, was selected to form the landing-corps, and left the vicinity of Morganzia to return to New Orleans. In the mean while, Franklin, to whom Banks had left the command of the forces collected on t

considerable. They had four hundred and fifty-two men disabled, among whom was Colonel Stone, commander of Polignac's old brigade. The loss of the Federals was two hundred and fifty men. Colonel Lynch, commanding a brigade, a very brave officer, who has since played a part in the schemes of the Fenians, was seriously wounded on this occasion. On the 19th of May the army began to cross Bailey's bridge, and on the 20th Smith in his turn crossed. The transports then started, and reached Morganzia on the Mississippi, where all of Banks' forces were mustered for the last time. The laborious and unfortunate Red River campaign was at an end. On the 19th, General Canby, assigned as commander-in-chief of the whole new department of the Trans-Mississippi, had reached Simsport. The authority with which he was invested, and that which his vast experience conferred upon him, were guarantees that henceforth the Federal armies of the Far West were going to be handled with a thoroughness w
Northern news. Petersburg, Oct. 16. --The New York Daily News, of the 14th, received here, says that the, Pennsylvania and Ohio elections are still in doubt. The News believes both have gone Democratic, the former by 7,000 majority. Five hundred of the wounded in the fights of Saturday and Sunday, on the Rappahannock, have reached Washington. Also 600 sick. Advices from New Orleans to the 3d state that in the fight at Morganza, on the Mississippi, on the afternoon of the 29th, the Federals were repulsed and driven to the river, with a reported loss of between 1,500 and 2,000. Franklin has gone towards New Iberia or Vermillionville with the 18th and 19th corps, and bloody work is expected.
rth. Owing to delay occasioned by the difficult arrangement of the details of the consolidation of the 20th and 21st army corps, Gens. McCook and Crittenden were not formally relieved until last night. Affairs in Louisiana. New Orleans advices are as late as the 9th inst., relative to army movements in the Gulf department: Gen. Banks had left New Orleans for the headquarters of the army, which had safely arrived at Iberia, in good health and fine spirits. The affair at Morganzia was more important than at first supposed. There was a Union loss of 15 killed, 35 wounded, and 500 prisoners. There had been heavy skirmishing between the enemy and Weitzel's artillery and cavalry. In the New Orleans Times, of the 8th, is an address from Col. C. W. Killburn, Provost-Marshal of New Orleans, calling upon the citizens to volunteer for the defence of the city, and declaring that the conscription act is to be positively enforced. Gen. Shepley has announced a rigorous collect
From Trans Mississippi. Mobile, Dec. 2. --The Register has advices from Texas to the 26th. The two Yankee army corps of Orr and Franklin have abandoned the campaign in Louisiana, and that State is now as free from Yankee rule as when Banks besieged Port Hudson. Gen. Walker maintains the blockade of the Mississippi, between the mouth of Red river and Morganza. Nothing but iron-clads can pass. Discouraging accounts are given of desertions from Price's army since Holmes resumed command. Banks, with 5000 troops, occupied Brownsville. He did not capture more than 50 bales of cotton. Cortins, the Mexican guerilla chief, has pronounced against Juarez and for the French, and holds Matamoras, increasing the difficulty of trade by the Rio Grande.
to have left on or about the 13th for Franklin's command, to be exchanged for Federal prisoners in Gen. Taylor's hands. Among these are Lieut.- Col. Guess, of the 31st, and Adjutant Howard, of the 7th Texas. The supposed reason for this exchange is, that Gen. Taylor has captured some of the Yankee pets, whom they wish to recover--Col. Knott for one, son of Captain Knott, of Banks's staff. All these exchanged prisoners belong to the Trans Mississippi department. Col. Guess was captured at Morganza, after the fight, by some Yankee stragglers, he having gone upon the field to seek for the body of a friend whom he supposed to be killed. The pre-occupation of our space obliges us to omit, for the present at least, many interesting matters gathered in our conversation with Col. Reid, but he would not excuse us if we failed to notice the unflinching patriotism and untiring devotion to the wants of the suffering prisoners of the New Orleans ladies. Their spirit is unsubdued, and it is
eight market was greatly depressed — a large amount of tonnage awaiting employment. The jobbing and wholesale dry goods business was greatly restricted. The Provost Marshal General has "consented to allow the festivities usual in the city on Mardi Gras." The steamer Planet, from Cairo, with cattle, produce, and 800 negro soldiers, was sunk the Monday night previous, 35 miles above the city — no particulars. Lieuts. Whitelt and Green, of the 26th Indiana regiment, captured at Morganza, had escaped from Tyler, Texas, and reached New Orleans. The trick by which they escaped was pretending to get angry at something said or done by the Confederate officer in charge, and surrendering their paroles, and then escaping by means of paroles borrowed from two other officers. They report upwards of 100 Yankee officers at Tyler. These men learned on their way that Mouton's division had been at Gaines's landing for the purpose of crossing arms and ammunition from this side, which t

From Trans-Mississippi. Clinton, La., May 24. via Summit, May 26. --Banks has escaped from Alexandria by way of Simmesport. A. J. Smith's corps has gone up to Natchez and Vicksburg. The balance of his army is in full retreat towards New Orleans, being now at Morganza, on the west bank of the river. Major Gen. L. Cauby has arrived and assumed command. Banks having gone to New Orleans. It is reported, and believed to be reliable, that Lieut Gen Dick Taylor is crossing at Atchafalaya river, 12 miles below where Banks crossed. Banks's troops are reported, on good authority, to be very much demoralized. Within the last six days the batteries belonging to Scott's command have fired into five Yankee transports, crippling three seriously, knocking out the steam-pipe of one and driving off, the gunboat that came to her relief. The loss of life is not known--Three stopped at Cat Island for repaired. The forces in the district are rapidly increasing, and Col Scott is ready
