Appended to this is a plan, suggested by the Secretary of War, to obtain from the people an immediate supply of meat, etc. in the various counties and parishes. This is my plan, so politely declined by the Secretary! Well, if it will benefit the government, the government is welcome to it; and Mr. Seddon to the credit of it, April 12TH.-Gen. Van Dorn, it is reported, has captured or destroyed another gun-boat in the West. Night before last another riot was looked for in this city by the mayor, and two battalions of Gen.

It is said they had 1600 cavalry and 5 guns, and the impression prevails that but few of them will ever return.
