hich might be undertaken at any time, thought it is unaccountably strange that it was not begun in December instead of May. As is well known, the columns under General Franklin crossed from New Orleans to Brashear City about the 1st inst., and thence took up the line of march along the Bayon Teche, substantially the same route pursued nearly a year ago, via Opelou Alexandria. The forces under General A. J. Smith, from the Department of the Tennessee, comprising the Brigades under Gens. F. K. Smith, Thomas, and Ellett, embarked at Vicksburg on the 10th and proceeded down to the mouth of Red river, where they found an immense fleet of gun bouts ready for the ascent. The twenty transports, preceded by the twenty gunboats, started from the Mississippi on the 10th, and ascended the Red river as far as what is called the Old river, when we turned into the Atchafa lays, instead of continuing up Red river.

Polk was dated, when on his return from Paducah, is near the northern boundaries of Tennessee, 199 miles west of Nashville Riplay, at which the prisoners have arrived, is in the northern part of Mississippi. In contemplating this great advance of Forrest, one cannot but ask where is that mighty cavalry best under Greerson and Smith that lately moved down from Memphis to co-operate with Sherman? Forrest seems to have everything his own way.
