all in the open such an attempt would have been almost criminal. Shortly after this Banks withdrew his forces to Baton Rouge, and a little later the most of them to New Orleans. On April 8, 1863, we crossed the Mississippi River from New Orleans to Algiers, a dirty, dismal city opposite the terminus of the New Orleans, Opelousas, and Great Western Railroad, over which road, through cypress swamp and alligator paradise, we were carried some seventy-five miles to Brashear City on the Atchafalaya River. This place had been taken possession of in 1862 by Butler, as a base of operations in West Louisiana; and again in January, 1863, learning that the rebel, General Dick Taylor, son of ex-President Zachary Taylor, with some 4,500 men, was menacing it, Banks sent General Weitzel with reinforcements, who drove the Confederates back again. Up to January 14, 1863, on which day the writer under instructions completed a detailed map of the Mississippi River, from New Orleans to about thi

mory, Grover, and Weitzel, was skirmishing and fighting along the bayous of western Louisiana to the Red River. The two divisions into which the army had now been divided were commanded by Generals Banks and Grover, respectively. On April 12 Banks crossed to Berwick City, and here Mr. Elliot failed to connect with his horse and equipments, which mishap afforded him the opportunity of marching on foot for thirty miles, meanwhile participating in the capture of Fort Bisland, so called, on Bayou Teche. This was on April 13 and 14. Here Banks ran up against Taylor's troops strongly entrenched on both banks of the Teche, while our troops were astride of it. After a stiff fight of two days Taylor made good his retreat at night, because Grover was so delayed in his march that he failed to get in Taylor's rear, as planned, and block his line of retreat. Brushing aside or pushing forward the Confederates, Banks reached Opelousas, which, Mr. Elliot writes, is one of the cleanest an

bodeaux, and terminated at that time at the little town of Brashear City. This town, situated on the left bank of the Atchafalaya, at the point where its waters emerge from the lake to empty into the sea, derived from this position great commercialear City, the Atchafalaya receives the waters of an important stream running from the north-west, known by the name of Bayou Teche, a rather inappropriate name, for it does not originate in another river like all real bayous. In approaching Lake Churn to the neighborhood of Brashear. They had not occupied that town in a permanent manner, but they were in force at Bayou Teche, and determined to dispute its possession with the Federals. Two works, connected by a species of stockade, defendeed in the vicinity of the fort; the expedition returned to Brashear, and thence to Thibodeaux. We shall see this same Bayou Teche becoming the object of another and more important campaign a few months later. But we must now turn our attention in

sufficient to compel them to surrender. But, being unable to bring them back into port in consequence of their draft of water, they were obliged to set them on fire on the 23d, in order to keep them from the steamships that Commodore Bell had sent for the purpose of recapturing them. Two months later, as we will show hereafter when speaking of the military operations in Louisiana, one of the ships belonging to the squadron, the Diana, was captured by the Confederates in the waters of Bayou Teche. The month of April bought on still further misfortunes. On the 7th a river-steamer, the Barrataria, which the Federals had fitted out as a guard-ship to watch the waters of Lake Maurepas, near New Orleans, ran aground at the mouth of the river Amite, when her crew, finding themselves attacked by a large number of partisans ambushed along the shore, were obliged to abandon her after setting her on fire. On the 18th some Union officers, having landed near Sabine City for the purpose of

nd part of Red River, as far as the long and tortuous channel of Atchafalaya (signifying in the Indian language the lost waters); which channith the forces at his disposal. He set about to find, by way of Bayou Teche and Red River, a route less dangerous for turning the batteries he could, in case of necessity, communicate with Banks by way of Atchafalaya. This blockade deprived the strong garrison occupying Port Huntending to gather all his forces in order to take possession of Bayou Teche, and to try to reach the borders of Red River by this route.

only a portion of his forces by sea, whilst the rest, moving up Bayou Teche and passing through Vermilionville, would make its way into Texang able to proceed by another route, Banks had decided to ascend Bayou Teche with all his available forces as far as Vermilionville, and to eranklin, having reached beyond New Iberia, had left the banks of Bayou Teche at the point where it ceases to be navigable at this season, andn the Mississippi to observe the country through which the upper Atchafalaya flows, had met with a severe check: General Green, whom it was ie forces of Green, whom he had called back from the banks of the Atchafalaya, he was following from Opelousas the tracks of the Federals, conng his absence General Franklin, having remained on the banks of Bayou Teche, in the vicinity of New Iberia, had, on November 20th, surprisedhe Sixth Texas, and Green had reappeared on the left bank of the Atchafalaya.
