s must soon follow, and glorious victories will be won over the trans-Mississippi rebels. The enemy appears to have moved his whole forces near here to crush out the Union army. According to the reports of prisoners, Kirby Smith, Dick Taylor, Green, Magruder, and Price are all in the field against General Banks and his commanders.

h with him up the Red River. On the return the Osage was making the descent with great difficulty, in tow of the Black Hawk, when on April 12th she ran aground opposite Blair's plantation. A Confederate force twelve hundred strong, under General Thomas Green, soon appeared on the west bank and, planting four field-pieces, advanced to attack the stranded ironclad. The brisk enfilading fire of the Lexington and the Neosho did not deter them. Lieutenant-Commander T. O. Selfridge waited till the heads of the Confederates appeared above the river bank. Then he let drive at them with his two big guns, pouring upon them a rain of grape, canister, and shrapnel. General Green, who behaved with the greatest gallantry, had his head blown off. After an hour and a half the Confederates withdrew from the unequal contest, with a loss of over four hundred dead and wounded. The Osage was sent to Mobile Bay in the spring of 1865 and was there sunk by a submarine torpedo on March 29th. A vete

Battle of Atchafalaya river-letter from General Thomas Green. [The following letter, from one of the most gallant and successful Generals, of the Trans-Mississippi Department, gives, with all the freedom of private correspondence, a vivid description of a hotly contested fight. We are anxious to obtain more material from the Trans-Mississippi Department, and are taking steps to secure it.] headquarters forces on Atchafalaya, October 1, 1863. my Dear wife: I am yet in the land of tapproaches. There have been very few deaths so far. If I had a little good brandy or whisky, or even (Louisiana lightning) rum, I could break my dumb chill in a minute; but there is nothing of that kind in the wilderness of the Atchafalaya. I will try very hard to get a furlough, unless I find that active operations are again close at hand. Major and Leigh were with me in the fight on the 29th, and are well. The messenger is waiting for this. Yours devotedly, (Signed) Thomas Green.

oat were reported as badly crippled. These two sections were under the immediate command of Captain Fauntleroy, Chief of Artillery of General Liddell's command. On the 12th of April, the Howitzer section of Captain J. A. A. West's Horse Artillery engaged in the sanguinary combat of Blair's Landing, firing with effect on the transports, and being exposed to a terrible fire from the iron-clads. Captain West and his men behaved with gallantry and coolness. In this engagement Major-General Thomas Green was killed. On the 23d and 24th of April, Captain I. T. M. Barnes, with his battery, reporting to General Steele, engaged the rear guard of the enemy at and beyond Cloutierville with fine effect, firing 215 rounds of ammunition. Captain Barnes and his men exhibited coolness and courage in contending against great odds.

Green, Thomas 1816- Military officer; born in Virginia in 1816; settled in Texas early in life; served in the war with Mexico: and when the Civil War began joined the Confederate army, and took part in the engagements of Valverde, Bisland, and Galveston, and the capture of the United States revenue-cutter Harriet Lane. In 1863 he defeated the National army in the action of Bayou la Fourche; was promoted major-general in recognition of his gallantry; and was fatally wounded at Pleasant Hill, La., by a shot from a United States war-ship, April 12, 1864, and died two days afterwards.

ks gave orders for an advance on Shreveport; but this was countermanded. In the meanwhile the gunboats, with Gen. Thomas K. Smith's troops, had proceeded as far as Loggy Bayou, when they were ordered back to Grand Ecore. In that descent they were exposed to the murderous fire of sharpshooters on the banks. With these the Nationals continually fought on the way. There was a very sharp engagement at Pleasant Hill Landing on the evening of the 12th. The Confederates were repulsed, and Gen. Thomas Green, the Confederate commander, was killed. Meantime, Banks and all the land troops had returned to Grand Ecore, for a council of officers had decided that it was more prudent to retreat than to advance. The army was now again upon the Red River. The water was falling. With difficulty the fleet passed the bar at Grand Ecore (April 17). From that point the army moved on the 21st, and encountered 8,000 Confederates, on the 22d, with sixteen guns, under General Bee, strongly posted on M
