successful expedition against the rebels at Ponchatoula. This regiment, since its arrival at New picket-firing, at a point a few miles from Ponchatoula. At daybreak next morning the march was cared over the barricade, and advanced toward Ponchatoula. None of our men were killed in this skirm to advance, and form a junction with me at Ponchatoula. I then proceeded, with the main body of teek, to Wadesboro Landing, three miles from Ponchatoula. Owing to the great difficulty of navigati threw out skirmishers, and advanced toward Ponchatoula. About a half-mile from the landing, we foithin range of their fire, into and through Ponchatoula. I immediately sent four companies, undeody of my command, leaving six companies at Ponchatoula, under Major Clarke, Sixth regiment Michigahe railroad, about eight miles this side of Ponchatoula, and did so last night, where I now am.

E. Bayard Webster. Company F.--Captain, Gould H. Thorpe; First Lieutenant, James B. Vose; Second Lieutenant, Wm. J. Walker. There has been one death by disease, and three men have been accidentally killed since the regiment left New-York, on the eighteenth of December last. Private Spicer J. Ruderow, of company A, died, in January, of typhoid fever. Corporal David Brown, of company D, was shot during the same month, while on guard, by the accidental falling of a stack of muskets. Private Geo. Hoctor, and Corporal Andrew Jackson, both of company E, were killed last week. The first, while on guard, was accidentally shot by the corporal of the guard; the last was killed by a piece of shell, fired from the United States gunboat Portsmouth, which, by some strange carelessness, burst over the camp of the Zouaves. They were all estimable men, and their early death is deeply regretted. It has been proposed by General Banks to convert the battalion into a regiment of mounted Zouaves.

Smith, for his hearty and effective cooperation through-out the entire expedition. Lieut. C. W. Stone, Quartermaster of the expedition, has labored earnestly and efficiently, and accomplished a great deal with very few facilities. I cannot close this report without returning my thanks for the assistance rendered me by Capt. Perce, of your staff, during his stay with me. He was continually by my side, ready to assist me in every possible way. Capt. Bailey also rendered me valuable service in the erection of breastworks. I inclose Col. Smith's report; also a communication from the enemy. My total loss is nine wounded-none seriously; while the enemy is reported at three killed and eleven wounded--one mortally. All of which is respectfully submitted. I have the honor to be, Your obedient servant, Thos. S.

xed pretty hot, and the enemy, doubtless seeking to gain time, sent out a flag of truce, which invited Col. Smith to a conference with the rebel commander, Lieut.-Colonel Miller, of Mississippi. A parley ensued, and an interchange of communications between the two commanders with regard to the cotton captured on the schooners--ColCol. Miller declaring that it was the property of British subjects. This ended, hostilities were resumed, and Colonel Smith soon after hearing the signal of Col. Clark, advanced with his regiment against the rebel position. The secessionists waited only long enough to exchange a few shots, and then took refuge in the woods. The Zouace, until hearing the signal from Col. Clarke, I did not attempt to move further on, but only to hold my position. At twelve M., a flag of truce advanced fiom Col. Miller, commanding the rebel forces, when I received from him the inclosed communication, in relation to the cargoes of the two schooners. You will also please find i

ss, I determined to fall back to the bend in the railroad, about eight miles this side of Ponchatoula, and did so last night, where I now am. I am erecting a small battery at this point. I forgot to mention, that on our arrival at Wadesboro Landing, we found the schooner L. H. Davis in flames. We also found two schooners loaded with cotton. We have captured some twelve prisoners, which have been sent on to New-Orleans. Owing to the very bad weather, the march over the trestle-work from Kenner was not only difficult, but dangerous, and many of our men were compelled to fall out, by means of hurts received by falling through the trestle-work. The skirmish on the twenty-fourth, was conducted by Capts. Griffin, company A ; Montgomery, company H; and Lieutenant Dickey, company E, Sixth Michigan volunteers, who bore themselves admirably; and on the afternoon of the twenty-sixth, by company D, Sixth Michigan volunteers, under Lieut. McIlvaine, and company K, under Capt. Chapman, and co

Clark, of the Sixth regiment Michigan volunteers,nemy at this place were variously estimated, and Colonel Clark's plan was to take them by surprise, attacking tula, and when he should hear three guns fired by Colonel Clark--the signal that he was in the enemy's rear — toat which Colonel Smith had been directed to wait Colonel Clark's signal. At the very same point last summer, wnd Colonel Smith soon after hearing the signal of Col. Clark, advanced with his regiment against the rebel posw advanced toward the town, and soon learned that Col. Clark, with his forces, after a sharp skirmishing with thing valuable to the enemy seized or destroyed, Colonel Clark, in accordance with his instructions, fell back re the official reports of the expedition: Colonel Clark's report.
