Special Correspondence of St. Loo is Republican Gbahd Ecobb, April 13. Tbe grasd expedition np Red River, which promised such beneficial results, has met with an unexpected and disastrous check. On tbe 6th of. April, the. Union army, under command of Maj. Gen. Franklin, moved from Natitocbes (pronounced Neck Itosb.) toward Sbreveport;" Natchitoches Is four miles from Red River the nearest point on the river being Grand Ecore, tbe place from which this letter is dated. Tbe road from Nacitoches is through a dense forest of pine woods, the surface of the country be ing broken and billy.' There are but few plantations opened and nothing upon which to subsist so army. On Thursday night, the 7.rmy camped at Pleasant Hill, a small town in the pine woods, about 30 miles North-east of Natchitoches, on the road to S breve port. Tbe wagnrj road leaves the river to the right some 15 or 20 miles, ren dering the co-operation of the gunboats im possible. Before encamping at Pleasant Hill, there was a sharp cavalry skirmish, about two miles beyond that place, result ing In no Important ad vantage to either par ty. The cavalry encamped about 7 miles in advance of the main army. Next morn ing (Fridav the 8th) tbe armv started to ward Man-field, a distance of 17 miles from Pleasant U ill. About noon, while the en emy was in line of march, arrived at a small bayou, where a bridge was being built. Gen. Banks at once assumed command of tbe army in tbe fieli. There was almost constant skirmishing all the way from Plea- ant Hill to the place where the b-tttle af terwards occurred. When Gen. Bnks ar rived at tbe bayou, the linn Armv corps were several miles in the rear, the 13:h Ar mv Corpe were crossing the newly con strocted bridge, and General Lee's cavalry about 5,000 men, some three rases in ad vance, togf ther with Nime's celebrated bat tery, the Chicago Mercantile battery. First Indiana, and batterv G.of regular army Tbe 4tb division. 19th Army corps, under command of Gen. Hansom , were burned forward as a support to the cavalry. About three o'clock in the afternoon, when within' two miles of MantDeid, tne advance army consisting of the cavalry, artillery and 4th division, 13th Army corps, above mentioned while marching through a dense p ne forest, there being thick undergrowth of pioes on either side of the road, were attacked by tbe rebels in great force, on both flunks and n the front. The engagement soon became general, tbe rebels suddenty opening with artillery, and musketry, charging our sur prised and panic-stricken columns with ter rfic yells, evincing a daring and determi nation worthy of a better cause. Geo Banks and Gen. Franklin hurried to the front, and were in tbe thickest of tbe fight. The artillery was speedily put in position at tbe extreme front, and for a while did excellent service. Finding the front rath er too dangerous for major-generals, Banks and Franklin returned to tbe rear of the wagon train, just io time tossve themselves rrom capture, as tbe rebels pressed opon both sides of our army with crushing effect. A ball passed through Gen. Banks' hat. av erythirg was soon in the wildest confusion, tbe wagon train, being in the rear, and a narrow road, attempted to turn round to fall back, and completely blocked np tbe way. cutting off the advance both from a wav of retreat and from re-enforcements. Tbe rebels bsd formed in tbe shape of an isos celes tnaugls, leaving tha base open, and at the apex planting their artillery. Our ad vance marched directly into tbe triangle, having the two wings of the rebel forces on either side of them. These wings were speedily connected, compelling oor forces to retreat or surrender. Tbe batteries above mentioued, consisting of twenty pieces 5n all, were now captured, together with near lv all the officers and men. The Chicago Mercantile Battery was captured entire, and I am informed that all her officers and men fell into tbe bands of tbe enemv. The 4th Division, 13tb Army Corps, 2 800 men, un der Gen. Ransom, and Gen Lee's cavalry. about 3.000 strong, and the batteries above ot tbe wagon train. These forces fought desperately for a while, but gave way un der auperlor numbers of the rebels, and re treated in great precipitation. Tbe scene of this retreat leggars all description. Gen. eral Franklin said of it, tbat 'Bull Run was not a circumstance in comparison.' Gen. R-tnsoo was wounded in tbe knee, but rode off the field before he was compel'ed, by loss of blood, to dismount. Capt. Dickev, of Gen. Ranson's staff, was shot through the bead and killed instantly. His body was left on tbe field. The position of tbe wagon train in the narrow road, was the great blunder of the affair. The rear was completely blocked up. rendering the re treat very difficult, and in fact a.mo-tt im possible. Cavalry horses were dashing at full speed threugh the roads, endangering infantry and other pedestrians more than rebel musketry, the retreat having become so precipitate that all attempts to make a stand for a while seemed impossible. The immense baggaga and supply train of Gen. Lee's cavalry, consisting of 269 wagons, nearly all fell into the hands of the enemy, together who toe mules attached thereto. The 3d Division, 13th Army Corps, mus tering about 18,000 men, under command of Gen. Cameron, were sent forward, and en deavored to make a stand. But tbe effort was futile. The rebels pressed so hard up oo lien. Cameron that be coald not resist them. After suffering terribly, he fell i withtberetreating column. The 13th Army Uorpa, numbering in all 4.600 men. when tbe fi jbt began, sustained a loss in propor tion to tbe number engaged which is per baps without a parallel in the history of this terrible war. Tbe 1 30th Illinois, com manded by Maj-ir Reed, attached to tbe 4th Division, could only 'find 58 men after the Dattle. so precipitate was tbe retreat of tbe r ourtn Division of this corps, that the men only brought off six hundred and forty stand of small arms, hundreds of them throwing u: ... . o wajr iuir guns to lacilitate their move moots.

" From the Dayton (O.) Empire; -Tbe Situation. There are proposed at this time to be es tablished upon our continent, two new Gov ernments one a Republic, and one a Mon archy. The Lincoln Administration is wa ging alrelentless wsr or 'subjugation and con quest.' (that's what it is exactly) upon the Republic, and supinely allowing tha Mon archy to assume such proportions as will make it a fixed fact, without so much as a wink of opposition. A bill protesting against this flagrant violation of the long cherished Monroe Doctrine bas been bronsht to an ignominious halt in the Senate on. account of the dastardly and treasonable indecision of the Foreign Committee, acting under the direction of Liocolu and Seward. Mean time two or more members of the House of Representatives are denounced ,ac,l threaten ed wim expulsion for protesting.. as thev have a perfectly clear right to do, and as it is their solemn duty to do, against the further weakening by this roost unnatural war. of the Republican power of our continent. If we are to maintain the Mooroe Doctrine, we must husband our strength. Tbe Repub lican candle Is ablaze at both ends. If we continue to exhaust our power as that of Monarchy increases and encroaches, we will soon be compelled to bow in helpless im potence to tbe fate of Mexico. The propo sition is fcelf-evident. Tbe Administration is waging a relentless war upon a people, who, under a system of Uovernmeot almost identical with our own, have declared, and are endeavoring to main tain, defensively, tbeir independence as a separate Republio They have been great ly weakened by tbe conflict, and so have we, and so has the power of tne Republican principle which both of ns represent. Pnnd ing this conflict betwoen North and South, a sister Republic has been crushed out of existeoce, and an Empire reared opon its ruins. . Tbe Monarchical power has gained a firm foothold upon our continent without resistance, and Strang as it may seem, while Long and Harris are being threatened with expulsioo for taking ground agaiBst the ex termination f those who would cherish and defend a Constitution almost identical with our own, there is not so much as a whisper of indignation against tbe dastard crew at Washington who are standing in atrociou abeyance before the . aggressive spirit ot monsreby which, at the end of our war ol subjugation" will be ready to Jelieve us of further trouble. Query? Who are tbe worst enemies of free Government, those who give aid and comfort to the Mexican Monarchy, or those who prefer two Republics to the subjugation of tbe people of both-, and tbe consequent ex tioctloo ol free government in America f From theI.flwerMiiiiippi.

The battle which had been going on at Plymouth from Sunday, 16th, to tbe 20th, resulted in tbe capture of tbe city by the enemy, on Wed nesday noon, including Gen, Wessels, and his forces, 1500 men. The enemy obtain ed possession of tbe town at 8 o'clock io the morning. Gen. Weasels and his troops re tired into Fort William and held out until noon, repulsing the enemy in several des perate assaults, whose loss is said to be 700, while our loss is slight. Geo. Wessels. who gained such distino-' tioo in the seven days fight before Rich mond, has made in siege,' most heroic re sistance with hia little band of veterans. Several weeks si nee be called for 6000 men. stating in most solemn manner that it would be impossible to hold the city with less number. Uen. Peck, who says be bad given Gen. Wessels all tbe assisstsnce in his power, in the same solemn manner, time and again called for reinforcements. It is reported the enemy has left Ply mouth and now moving on Waaka, also oo this citv.

Wbeo the Hindoo is dead, his body is laid oo a bier; be is carried usually to the sea or riv er, where the funeral pile is ready prepared. His face is exposed. Over tbe corpse is thrown a white cloth, on whicb many Sow ers are strewn. Before the body is taken to be bo rot, it is anointed with ghee, clari fied butter. Arrived at tbe side of tbe water, the nearest relation sets fire to tbe pile, which is soon in a blaae. It takes three hundred pounds weight of wood to consume tbe body of an adult. Tbe cere monies are numerous, and a description of them would fill a chapter. The ashes are afterwards thrown into the river o sea, and more ceremonies go on, called 'Sbradhu,' which consists of rites for tne repose of tbe soul of the departed; it is strictly attended to, end often costs a great deal of money the prieits receiving very handsome pres ents from the relations. Representative Harris Io a debate. last week, in tbe lower Mouse, Darris re marked in his savage manner. "you sav vou will bring tbe South to subject inn." Tbat is not done yet, oud God Almighty grant tbat it never may be, I hope you will never subjugate the S uth. When tbe words were taken down and read from the clerk's desk, he exclaimed. "that's right, I say it over again, what have you got to say about it?" Amid tne confusion, laughter afi eurses Washburne advanced down the aisle atid raising hia voice above the din, he shouted, I protest against any mn ottering such anguage in this tlall." Harris responded: You mean you are afraid of it? Shout of "order" resounded from the tory side of tbe House, and the Speaker ordered Harris to take bis seat. Harris quivering with an ger and scorn turned sneeriniy to YYasb buroe and exclaimed, "you God d n vil lian you." Life's Phases.

These vessels, of which thers are about twenty in all, are built expressly for ocean navigation, and some of tbem are of the same class as tbe Warrior and La Gloire. Tbey are all constructed ia the best man ner, by tbe most experienced European ship-builders, plated with iron or malleable steel to a thickness that defies penetration, and mounted with armaments far superior to anything now a03at in American waters.
