in an awkward predicament. Briefly, the expedition was abandoned, and Banks returned to Baton Rouge, and then to New Orleans. On April 8 Mr. Elliot again moved with headquarters to Brashear, and for the next six weeks Banks, with Emory, Grover, and Weitzel, was skirmishing and fighting along the bayous of western Louisiana to the Red River. The two divisions into which the army had now been divided were commanded by Generals Banks and Grover, respectively. On April 12 Banks crossed to Berwick City, and here Mr. Elliot failed to connect with his horse and equipments, which mishap afforded him the opportunity of marching on foot for thirty miles, meanwhile participating in the capture of Fort Bisland, so called, on Bayou Teche. This was on April 13 and 14. Here Banks ran up against Taylor's troops strongly entrenched on both banks of the Teche, while our troops were astride of it. After a stiff fight of two days Taylor made good his retreat at night, because Grover was so delayed

Rouge, and along the coast, he had only three divisions Left—about fifteen thousand strong—with which to begin the campaign; five or six gunboats were to accompany him. On the 9th and 10th of April he landed Emory's and Weitzel's divisions at Berwick City, in front of Brashear, on the other side of the Atchafalaya. During this time Grover's division, which had embarked on board three transports and the four gunboats, the Clifton, the Estella, the Calhoun, and the Arizona, was to proceed to thea canal called Bayou Boeuf, whose crossing was defended by a small Federal fort. During this time, Taylor, assembling his troops at Pattersonville on the Bayou Teche, had marched in the direction of Brashear City, and on the 22d he occupied Berwick City, situated in front of this town on the other side of the Atchafalaya. His artillery, having been placed in position, caused much confusion among the garrison, which was not expecting such an attack, and drove off the Federal gunboats guardin

The correspondent says: The force at Brashear expected an attack, but they looked for the advance from Lafourche, and were fairly surprised — literally, as well as in a military sense — when at daylight Tuesday morning two batteries, planted the night previous, opened upon them from Berwick City, opposite, and not an hour after came crashing through the woods a mixed mass of horse and footmen. There were not more than six hundred of them, and they were a p Monton's force from the west bank of tche. They crossed on rafts and flat- boats, landing on the south bank of Lake Patondre, charged into town, and came in the rear of the Federal, who were looking for an advance upon Bayon Boeuff. It was short work. There was no fighting. The Provost Marshal and a few men near the bay suc
