Accordingly, nt ub ut S o'clock on the morning of the "lb, he disembarked bis force on tho Missouri shore, some live miles nbove Ilelinont. nnd ordered the gunboats to drop below nnd enrago the batteries at Columbus. Quickly forming his col umn. Grant pushed for the Confeder ate camp, hoping to (alio tho Confeder ates by surprise. Grant's Foe He-enforced. In this, Im was partly mistaken, for General Polk, who was nt Columbus, lied been uotllled of tho landing of Pedernl troops on the west shore of tho Mississippi nnd piomptly dispatch ed General Gideon J.

At tho end of a nlllo tlio tvholo lluo wns held up by n now obstacle, a sort of secondary river bank that formed n tmlural breastwork fc- tho Confcd crates. Grant's column had nlso got within range of tho fleldpleccs nt Itel mont and of tho heavy guns nt Colum bus, and shot and bIioII toro through the forest, giving tho fnrm boys n tnsto of real war. Tlio Confederate riflemen were favored with picked shots, nnd Grant's olllcers nnd men fell rnpldly. General .1. A.
