nd Chicago, and, on the 29th of March, Mc-Clernand was sent by the circuitous roads that lead from Milliken's bend, by way of Richmond and west of Roundaway bayou, to New Carthage, twenty-seven miles below. McPherson and Sherman were to follow McClernand, as rapidly as ammunition and rations could be forwarded. The movement was necessarily slow; the roads though level, were intolerably bad, the effects of the long overflow having not yet disappeared. A new canal was being constructed at Duckport, to connect the Mississippi with Roundaway bayou, and there was danger of McClernand's route becoming overflowed from this canal. The wagonroad, even where built up, was only twenty inches above water in the swamp; and the river was four and a half inches higher than the land, at the point where the water was to be let into the canal. Grant, at this time, wrote to Halleck: The embarrassment I have had to contend against, on account of extreme high water, cannot be appreciated by any one n
manner by the Fifteenth army corps. 10. Two regiments from each army corps will be detailed by corps commanders, to guard the lines from Richmond to New Carthage. 11. General hospitals will be established, by the medical director, between Duckport and Milliken's bend. All sick and disabled soldiers will be left in these hospitals. Surgeons in charge of hospitals will report convalescents, as fast as they become fit for duty. Each corps commander will detail an intelligent and good drilies, without regard to the regiments they belong to; and in the absence of convalescent commissioned officers to command them, will appoint non-commissioned officers or privates. The force so organized will constitute the guard of the line from Duckport to Milliken's bend. They will furnish all the guards and details required for general hospitals, and with the contrabands that may be about the camps, will furnish all the details for loading and unloading boats. 12.

ion, it becomes divided: one branch runs back into the Mississippi, passing before New Carthage; the other branch continues its course under the name of Bayou Vidal, losing itself at some distance from that locality among the marshes, which, in their turn, become the sources of new bayous. A trench was opened from Young's Point for the purpose of putting the Roundaway Bayou in communication with the river across the small channels by which it is fed at this point as far as the vicinity of Duckport village. In the mean time, McClernand, having left Milliken's on the 30th of March, was marching upon Richmond. From this place he was to endeavor to reach New Carthage with as many troops as he could manage to push forward along the half-submerged roads of that country. Richmond was occupied without fighting by the Federal advance-guard, and the road from Milliken's to this village rendered almost passable in a few days; finally, on the 6th of April, some flatboats, with howitzers on bo
