Tne folio -iui from the New Orleans Era is an account of tho final victory of the Uuioa loroe. After some terrific fiahtini: at 7 o'clock Saturday, morn- forces were at Pleasant lliU land the rebtla were advancing, the was vent out on the Snreveport road to meet tho enemy and draw him on. lie bad gone abont a mile when be came upon the rebel advance and skirmish ing immediately e'usued, and according to the plan he 6lowly fell back. The hght was very short between these cavalry bodies, and Col. Gooding lost tiearly 40 men killed and woundtd, in flicting, however, as much damage as be received. The 13th corps was a re serve in the rear under Geo. Cameron, Gets. Ransom having been wounded the day before. Gen. Smith was a c nnmander-in-chief of the second lines back ot the crest, while Gen. Mower was commander of the men. The com mander ot therijjlit bngade in Uren Smith's West line was Col. Lynoh The commander of the left brigaue w.V Col. Shaw. The 2d brigade also con sisted of two brigades. Crawford's 3d Indiana battery was posted ou the right ofthe89ib Indiana Infantry, and the 9th Indiana battery on the right of the line ot buttle. Th9 Missouri Iron Gun Battery and others whose names and numbers we could not ascertain, were also iu this battle. The skirmishing was kept up with considerable vigor until about five o'clock in the afternoon, when the rebels had completed their arrange ments for the attack. At about '.his hour, General Emery's tkirmish line was driven iu on tho right hv the reb els, who in large force came through the limber above mentioned. They soon reached the open "round and moved ou to the attack in three lines ot battle. Our batteries and infantry opened with lei rible effect, doing great slaugh ter with grape and oanister,but tho ene my's artillery being in the woods and in'bad position, did scarcely atiy dam age. Col. Benedict's brigade on tbe left was first mgan;ed and was soon fol lowed by Dwight's and McMillan's. The fisrhtina was terrific. Old sol diers say it was never sttpassed tor desperation. Notwithstanding the ter rible havoc in their ranks, the enemy pressed fiercely on slowly pushing tho men of the Ot.h corps back up the hill but not breaking their line of bat tle. A sudden aud bold dash of the rebels on tho right gave them posses sion of Captain Taylor's battery and they forced our hues further up tne bill. Now came the grand coup de main. Tho 19th, on arriving at the top of the hill suddenly tiled over tho bill and passed through the lines of General Smith. We must here mention that the reb els were in but two lines of battle, the first having been almost annihilated by Emery. What remained were forced back into the second line, but these two lines came on exultant, and sure of success. ThelPfirst passed over the knoll, and all heedless of the "long line of cannon and crouching guns, pressed on. The 2d lino appeared on the crest and the death signal was given. Words cannot describe the nwtul effects ol this discharge. Ten thousand rifles and several batteries of artillery loaded to the rauzzlo with grape and cannis ter were tired simultaneously and the whole center of tho rebel line was crushed down frightfully mangled by this oue discharge. No time was giv en them to restore order, but Smith or dered a charge aud his men dashed forward, the boys of the 19th joining in. The rebels fought boldly and des perately back to the timber, on reach ing which, a large portion broke and fled, fully 2,000 throwing aside their guns. In this charge Taylor's battery w as re-taken as were also two of the guns of Minn's battery. The Parrott gnu taken from us at Carrion Crow last fall, and one or two others belonging to tha rebels, one of which was consid erably shattered, besides 700 prison ers. A pursuit and desultory fight was kept up for three miles, when our men returned to tbe field of battle, and thus ended this fearful and bloody strug gle for the control of Western Louisi ana.

Correspondcnc cf the Cincinnati Enquirer, Washisoiok, April 30. cenncpTios is ins oueenhack factory. Tbe main sensatioa to day is created by a partial developmert ol circumstances upon which charges are made against tbe Treas ury Department, which I alluded to in my last despatch. A Committee consisting ql five Republicans and four Democrats, was ap pointed by tbe liouse to day to investigate the cause. Tbe alleged corruption is in the printing department, where tbe greenbacks are turned out by steam engine and machinery, and done up to an it the pressing demands of the Treasury. This branch of the service is un der the management of one S. M. Claik, against whom curious rumors have been a float (or two or three months. Efforts have been made to have Mr. Chase remove this man Clark, but without avail, as be seemed to have a hold on the Secretary that could not be loosened. Wbat tbe spell was, with which he beguiled the father of greenbacks, no one could tiactly toll, though there were seme curious conjectures. Among the rumors now floating, and which I believa are embodied in tbe charges, is mentioned a discrepancy in tho fractional currency account, there being a variance of about twenty millions a mere traction ol the great aggregate irom tbe amount which is required o be kept in circulation, and re ported by the Secretary as actually in circu latinn. it is also charged that among the females employed in the greenback factory, Mr. Clark has employed women of easy virtue, and that the most bare faced treachery is practiced in tbe department with these wo men. it is even mii this branch of tbe ser vice has a fen rooms fitted up in oriental style ofsplcodor, and that a regular harem is kept under ibe control pf a leading cfBcer, for the benefit of persons high in the confi dence of the President. In tine, the charges amount to this: that the greenback factory is a place of easy virtue lor tho benefit of pari ties ol easy morals. Ibere has been much or unhappy jarring in the Cabinet family recently, and each de partment has suspected the . others of corrup tion. This Jed to the appointment of cer tain detectives who lened out and made known the matters above stated. The de I positions of the females and others were ta ken, and most ol tbe prool is, therefore, al ready prepared for the committee. THE IMPENDING BATTLE. All eyes are now turned towards the Rap idan is expectation of the impending coeilict, and which wi t commence next wees, a con flict that will, it is expected, settle ibe des tiny ol the Republic. General Gram has eompleted his preparations; the preliminary arrangements are complete, and he is now ready. Two hundred and fi'ty thousand men compose the aimv of tba North; and liom the best authority, the Rebels will have at least from one hundred and sixty to one hundred and ninety thousand troops. Both sides ate confident, and the coming week will in all probability rcccrd the bloidiest and most awiul battle in the bistoty of the war. THE FREEjIDEKTIAI, CONTEST. It ill now settled that the Baltimore Con vention will come off June 7, and the im pending battle between Giant and Lee is al most overlooked in the' interest in the Presi dential struggle. Banks is no more thought of as a compromise candidate. He is a dead cock in the pit. -v. Fremont is becoming daily more 'ormida ble, though the belief is that Lincoln will be renominated. The bold stand taken by the Germans is doing Lincoln more barm than anything else. . . f Frank Blair's speech has damaged Chase very much, and many are looking round for an entirely new candidate. The candidate nominated will depend much on what Gen. Grant may be ablo to do. RK.VEHSES. The reverses on the Red River and at Ply mouth, have bad a very dispiriting e fleet on the Cabinet. Gen. Grant's luck does not start out welt. There is also a painful ru mor from Fortress Monroe tbat Little Wash ington has been captured, and fears are en tertained that Newbern will tall next. These revarses have determined General Grant to brin on tbe struggle for Richmond as soon as possible. Ibe confluence of the country is being shaken, both in tbe military and finan cial power of the Government. RICHMOND. It is understood that Beauregard has charge of the eastern de'tnece of .Richmond, and is now busily employed in directing the com pletion of tho intrenchmenls in that quarer. Tbe South regards this campaign as deter mining their late, and the exertions it is making aia commensurate with tbat idea. SECOND DISPATCH.

The prospect s tbat there will be a movement ol the army early tbe coming week. Tbe House spent most of to day In dis cussing tbe qualities of tbe negro.

D. Bickbam, "editor end proprietor" of the Dayton Journal, makes iu bis paper of April 27, a furious ocslaught upon a Re publican U. S. Sitiator Irom Ohio, Hon. John Sherman. Mr. Bickham begins by "the exact thing wn'cn wasooneoy uva. John Sherman, in tbe Unitid States Senate on tbe 19th tnst., was lo propose an exten sion of tbe lease of slavery. A proposition to repeal all Fugitive Slave Laws was pend ing, when Mr. Sherman moved to amend by inserting "excepting the act of February 12ih, 1793." Tbe lollowing paragraph contains tbe cream of Mr. Bickbam'8 article; "Mr. Sherman's object in thus opposing tbe policy of the Government, and tho ascer tained will of the majority of the people, is inexplicable. We bad supposed tbat no lact was more conclusively established than that slavery was the cause ol the war that the slaughter ol thousands of brave men and the expenditure of thonsands of millions ol treas ure was tbe consequence of it, and that it bad been decisively dotermined that the only way to establi.-h peace and Union, and to restore the authority of the Gov eminent is to destroy slavery. The Proclamation of Emancipation, we pre sumed, contemplated that end ; the Proola mation of Amnesty, we supposed, looked in the same direction; tbe resolution adopted by two thirds pf the members of the United States Senate Uon John Sherman votiDg with tbe majority to o menu ihe rederal Constitution so as to abolish slavery iu i he Tnited States, we understood to mean tbe extinction and eradication of the infernal in stitution which was the cause of the rebel lion and all our woes." Mr. Bickhatu edits and publishes an ultra Abolition sheet, which advoca'es Lincoln's re election. We notice its utterances for the purpose of showing lbev:ewsof on Ohio Lincoln oigan. it teems it at, tn ttsesiima lion, to oppose the repeal of tha lugitive slave law, enacted in less than four years af ter the Fedtral Government went into oper ation under the present Constitution, is to "opposo the policy ill tbe Government." It is clear, then, that the policy ol the Govern ment under the Administration ol Geoige Washington was ono thing, and that, undor tbe Administration of Abraham Lincoln, it is quite another and a different thing. Mr. Bickbam is amazed at Mr Sherman's course, because be (Mr B ) bad supposed it 'conclusively established," that is, in the minds of all partisans ol the Administration, John Sherman included, Itat "slavery was tho cause of the war," and that all the ef forts of the Government in carrying on 'he war are to be directed, not to put down rob elt in arms end te-es-ablifh peace and Union on the old basis of the Constitution, but "to destroy slavery." "'his is the ultimate end, according to the Dayton editor and all the prominent leaders of Ins party, lor wnton cut-pallent meu are now in the field, find others are being called out by the uuuorea thousand, to be sacrificed that "petsons of Alricaii descent" may be made free Not only is Ohio und every other State under Administration control to be depopu lated by the loss of the flower of her popu lation; but, according to thia Abolition wor programme, the Constitution, which i3 the life oi the Union, is to be violated, its sa cred guarantees disregarded, and constitu tional Government overthrown, in order "to destroy slavery." The Proclamation of Emancipation, we are now frankly told, -'contemplated that end;" the proclamation of Amnesty "looked in tho same direction," and to did tbe resolution to amend the Con. siitution passed by the Senate, and for which John Sherman voted. Mr. Bickham, by expressing the real de signs ol tbu pany in power, fixes on Mr. Sherman the brand of inconsistency. Tbe only difference between the Senator and the editor is, that the former is the more wily politician, and want, while he keeps step to tbe roll of the radical revolutionary drum, to dupe as many well-meaning persons into tbe racks as possible, by showing now aad then a hypocritical pretense o I love for the old principles and the old ways, when tbe Re public was united, frea and profperou3. Stacesman. The Chtisc Lincoln and Blair Imbroglio IMuhnble Willi druwul of C'hast! from the Cab itiel An Incipient llobrtlioii in llio AdiHinistriition Itank. Tbe Washington correspondent of tbe Cincinnati Gazette telegraphs to that paper under date of April 27 as lollows: There is much indignation over tbe illegal act of appointing Frank Blair Major Gener al without sending his nomination lo the Senate. Tbe President expressed himself very much exercised over it, and has been sending for numerous members and Senators to consult on the subject. He admits that this step was without law, but says Blair had him in a tight place and held him to his promise, the liouse will push the in quiry, with the particnlar view of ascertain ing the date of tho commission Blair holds, I fit proves to be dated back to the time of bis engiDal appointment, they will then de mand bow he came to be legally occupying a (eat in Congress, while really a Major General in tho army. If it is dated since he left Congress, again the Senate will de mand wby his nomination w as not sent tbem as tbe Cons'itu ion requires. Meantime tbe effect of this unprecedented couise iu another quarter threatens to be most serious, lilair did absolutely nothing in Congress but ma lign Secretary Chase. Jiis last speecb was full of vile remarks involving Mr. Chase's personal character. Ua tbe heels of this the Pi esident coolers tbe highest position of military honor upon him, and even violates la to do it. Naturally Mr. Chase takes Ibis as an indorsement of tbe slanders, and was even since its occurrence on the point of peremptorily tending his resignation and demanding tbe fullest investigation. Lead ing publio meu, Governors Congressmen, &e. have been dissenting from it in consideration ef the public interest, and the President is quite alarmed, and has been explaining to Mr. Chase's friends that be did not mean anything by reappointing Blair, ancVthat he very much disapprove of his speech. So matters stand up to date. Meanwhile, Mr. Chase has gone over lo Pbilade'phta fer a day." ' ,-. i,:- In the same issue which contains tbe foie going dispatch, the Gazette has the following editorial: "Pbobablk Resignation or Seoiistat Cuase Our Washington dispatches indi cate the probable withdrawal bf Mr. Chase .from the Cabinet. Under pressing, circum stances it is difficult to see how be can con sent lo remain. Tbe principal business of Frank Blair while in the House was to abuse the Secretary of tbe .Treasury!, His last speech was, in this respect, excessively bit ter. On the heel of this, Mr, Lincoln re commissioned him as Major General against the protest of tha friends of the President In Congress; contrary to usage, aad as is believ ed, without authority of law. This' is, nat uratly enough, construed by Mr. Chase as an indorsement of Mr. Blair s course. - The President, it is said, disclaims any such in tenlion, but this can hardly prove satis faoto ry to the Secretary 61 the Treasury. ,: It it possible, however, that be may, lo view -ol the publio interests, be prevailed upon to remain. The act of Mr. Liocoln in recommiasioniog Mr. Blair, is an extraordinary one, and it mazed and mortified the friends of the Ad mininiration throughout the country."

The' Ohio Statesman says: It will be re membered that the Western Governors whs have ot lato been paying their devoirs to their lge lotd at Washington, at first pro posed to place at his disposal two hundred thousand miliiiai-men; but that "Uncle Abra ham," either thinking the profer an excess of liberality, or fearing tbat it would raise expectationa in tbe popular mind which - be could not and did intend should be fulfilled, declined to accept so many. The Gover nors prested the matter, and a compromise was finally (fleeted, "Old Abe" consenting to receive a donation ol eight; five thousand ab!e bodied Western men. The number being agreed upon, there was another point to be fettled thr'tetm of ser vice of the men thus transferred by the Gov ernors to tbe President. A Washington dis patch to the "loyal" Cincinnati Gazette, says ol our weighty Gcvcrcot 'a action in the mat ter: . . Governor Brough urgontly proposed offer ing them for six n ontbs, but some of tbe other Governots objected. He then urged four months, to which all the Governors ex c:pt Morion assented. Governor Morton objected, on the ground that it might take men out ol tho State who were needed to sustain the Government in the home elec tions. Finally it was agreed to stretch the time ol teivice a little Let end tbe 'three months proposed, and nuke it one hundred days." 1 he Indiana Governor has an eye single to tbe "main cbatice" for himself and his political party. It is evident tbat be judged it ol more impoitance that bis party ebonld catry the home elections than tbat the war should bo ended by any decisive movements in the field. This reason ol Governor Mor ton's gives color to the suspicion entertained ty many, tbat tbe whole thing is an elec tioneering trick to establish a sort of manu- lactory ol Abolition voters. Governor Brough seems to have thought t six months' term rentusite.

The Gazette, iu which the dispatch referred to in this article, appears, thus speaks of the opt erations ot the bundled day's call: "The one hundred days call is likely to operate vary seriously on the (araiurs. Sev eral companies ol tbe National Guaid in this county ate composed of furmerx, who finding it almost an iuipossidliity to gtt farm help or substitutes, have t.o alternative except to go, and leave corn planting lor an other year.

The New York IkraU, of a recent dte had an article calling attc-n ion to lha nu merous diseases, tvith which the bud is now afilicted, and invsstinntes the way in which they are generatad. Anion' other suggestions, it says: Can it ba that a shoddy plague is creep ing stealthily into out midil? souio un known terror, which medical science has not contemplated or provided for; a combina tion of disseases, originating Irom a cause hitherto not existing in this country; the ptisonoftho hospitals and 'he battlefield, conveyed in tbe form of shoddy flannels and shoddy muslin gooda? We believe tbore is no doubt tbat the ma terials of which thesj articles are composed come mainly from these sources. We have it on the authority of one of tho managers ol a prominent shoddy factory in Pennsylvania that the shiits, blankets, and even the ban dages, of the wounded, dtad and diseased, both iu Ihe field and in the hospitals, are re ceived there actually moist with blood and corruption, and in this state are torn into shreds in the machines, and manufactured into shoddy flannels, blankets and cotton ma terial. If this be true, then the shoddy man u'aoturers outvie in their hideons but profit able trade, the exultation of the wretch Cbuwles in his subterranean orgies, as Ains worth desciibcs him, during the plague ot London. .

We trust tbat tbe mysterious diseases which now afflict the community may be traceable to some lef s hor rible and inhuman caute; but we trust also that the medical faculty will diligently ini vesiigate the matter, for it is one of a very grave aod startling character.
