When I last wrote yea, the

camped near Opejoosas, Sosbc-I with afctories,

ever, remained there orahoat two weeks waiting
1 fcr supplies from Nerr Orleans. Tbe enemy bad
j been pursued with sack rigor tbat trains were
left fir is the rear, and tbe troop were oblige"!
' to subsist en half rations of bard bread, salt
and coffee. Fresh beef, corn meal, and sugar,
I were found in Hbaodaner in tbe country, and
I were seised and i-etiwl to tbe army; so the Yan-
kia bad rebel fire for a few d.ys. Tbe only

I While there in camp, the army waa reviewed by
j Gen. Bank. It was otnething different from
! the gay and brilliant displays that one usually
meets with at Grand reviews of as Army Corp.
The men bad bivouacked for three v-esks bad
not been allowed to carry an extra suit of clothes,
so some were ragged, some barefoot, some had
lot their neat army caps, and replaced them
with rebel goods U bad blouses, inateal of the
trim dress esat. But the greatest change was
iu tbeomoers. Unshaven, with ebaatder-strap?
and earn torn off by sbinnishmg through bushffc
I and woods, no nshee, no gloves, no buvctmg, no
fineclotlsea or bright bat ton, often ragged.
tbe osaoers did not make the usual sAov, but the
reality was there ; and then tbe music was some-
1 thing different from tbe usual stirring founds
I beard in camp With the exception of one or
! two regiments where much pains had been taken
' to have the drum corps or band ride, or their
instruments carried, the music wse ludicrous
the rattle of one or two old broken beaded drums.
,ii that bi ridded tbe approach or some 01
ids ted their condition, the more service luuw
eated, and the men were, in fact, proud of their
tatters. rrobably no bcly of men from er- j
mont ever marched with premier step, and fir-
mcr tmw than did the Eighth Regiment, st this I
Rei iew. Aa they had been in the extreme ad-J
vance. through all the fighting and danger of
the campaign, so now tbey took the load in poop
and ceremony, and were the first battalion to j
rrf before Gen. Banks ; by him tbey were
complimented, and also by Gen. WeiticL Tbey
t,1(j up tuty and regular houses ef boughs ;
for their camps, and when their quarters rere i
((nected, tbey were pronounoed in far better i

It Tvill be observed that tho 2nd Vermmt bat

The fielJ of battle was cn Tort Hudson Thins
These are two open tracts cf smooth country four
milts sait of Port HuJson. The lower plains are
a mile Across, each way, lying on either side cf
the Ibyui Ears Rood, lbe upper plains extend
for half a mile north and south, and a fourth of
a rjile in the width on the same road. A cress
road tuns iu a northwesterly direction frcm the
loser plains to Port Hudson, and another one,
iu a winterly direction, from the upper one. On
all s'.dt9 a dense forest hems in the two Held.
Nature could have given tbe rebels no bitter po
sition to ambush and cut off or destroy an army,
than there is here.
The first general engagement w'.th the rnemr
incurred on Friday, the Hist inst. At 6 o'clock
in the morning the bivouac station ou the Bay
ou Sara roal was broken up, and the troops re
turned the march, which was commenced at Ba
ton llouge at 1 o'clock on the previous day.
Major (itneral Augur, wn in chief command.
General Dudley's brigade funding tbe column,
and General Chanin's cotninz next in order.
Capt. Godfrey and Capt. leaton, of lb Firat
Louisiana Cavulry, were half a mile ahead of the
column with their companiee, when, upon reach
ing tbe firt woods above the lower plains, they
met a small force of mounted rebel infantry,
with which tbey had a brisk skirmish. The re
bels ambushed the two companies at a bend in
the road, but retreated alter firing a volley and
receiving the fire of the advance guard. No fur
ther oppoMtkm was made to the progrees of the
oolumn uutil the cavalry reached UeaVood cross
road, a sbott distance below the upper pUins.
At this point the rebels were drawn up in line
One section of Battery G. Fifth United .States
Artillery, Lieut. lUwlca commending, was at
once sent forward to shell the rebel position. It
was pasted at a sharp bend ia the road, with a
dense forest on eitbt i side, but an open area
to the front as far as the "Plain fr," near
which were a dwelling-hou an1 some negro
shanties. Our artil'ery had hardly taken posi
tion when two shells cuae plunging down direct
ly in front of the gun Then commenced a heavy
cannonading, which was maintained with great
vigor on both sidta. Another section of tbe Fifth
lteguhr Artillery was quickly brought forward,
and at once opened nre. I ne section of the
Eighteenth New York, and two sections f the
Second Vermont Bitterm were also brought up,
and joined in tbe engagement. The enemy had a

Tbe New York TWSuiac publishes trop.r- .

1 of the nation, basing its statemento upon n :
' letter reo ived from the Secretary of the l
Treasury. 1Yc extract the following i
I. "Ne proposition f. r a permanent loaa. pay- i
able otherwise than n American gold, er any- i
, wbare !e than at the Treasury of the I nit-I
otste-, bas ever been entertained, or is bat'- o
be entertained," by the present head of the
psxtmtat; and "no authority has been g v... t '
any one to negotiate a loan abroad on any o'"
terras than wouM have been accepted Cr t'.e
same loan from Americas capitalists."
It aprn that the l-lea of ia Thing prcptta'.
roth at home and abnl, for a loan payable af
ter ten years, has been postponed, if not deSnilr
ly at-an lemed, in consequence of the great u -
cv uf tbe Five Twenty saVptioe;; "and "
aotbonty to receive proposals abroad for uch a
loan was withdrawn as soon as it was determined '
net to ask for H at home." The Secretary d-.e
rn-.t now judge it desirable ie receive a large f r
eign loan, even for ths nre Twenties it par
New York. He does not admit tbe idea that
nnder any circumstances fbreiga eapualiats cr
bueire's men should be preferred to cur own .
and th s sentiment is no less wise than patriotic
appreciated as rt is by tbe people who are so ' 1 -erally
rallying to his support.
" "There is net in the Department a single
uaaatiafiad reuiartion for diabursement in -.r.y
branch of the public service. Tbe army ha.-
been paid in full the 1st of March, and ii
military reverses should be experienced, there
everv reascn to believe that cn the 1-t ef Ju
