3 esterday's despatch in regard to the disaster to a
portion of our forces comprising the Red River
The letter says: "Of our whole division, num
bering three thousand men, but one thousand are
left to tell the tearful odds against which they con
tended. . .
Two regiments of the division were consolidated,
and bad in all fourteen hundred men and seven
officere, the highest in rank being a captain.
The 19th Corps checked the rebels and held them
for about wenty-five minutes, when they were
forced to retire, which they did slowly, and as
night came on the bloody conflict ended.
The next evening General A. J. Smith came np
with his command and relieved General Franklin,
and whipped the rebels badly.
Twelve pieces of cannon were recaptured and
eight hundred prisoners taken.
A letter from another private in the same battery
says: • •Our Corps (the 13th) were all.eut to pieces

_IN _ PLYMOUTH, NORTH
NORFOLK, Va., April 19, 1E64. —Refugees arriv
ing. the morning from Plymouth, North Carolina,
report that fighting commenced there at half-past
lour on Sunday afternoon. The rebels came down
in force and attacked Fort Gray, which is about a
mile tram the town on the Roanoke River. They
planted a heavy battery on Polk's Island, about a
mile distant., and kept up a continuous fire, dur
ing which they succeeded in cutting away the flag
mast at the fort. This was replaced and the
"Stars and Stripes" again floated defiantly in the
face of the foe, and gallantly did the lorce n within
The rebels then advanced slowly forward, gradu
ally_and carefully feeling their way up to witain a
short oistat.ce of the fort, when they made an im
petuous charge. They were received with a gall
ing fire, which thinned their ranks and caused
them to fall back. Agam and again they rallied
and endeavored to take the citadel by force, but to
no purpose. Each time they were repulsed whit
fearful slaughter. They retired, their artillery
still keeping up the fire.
Their much-boasted iron ram, with four other
gunboats, bud moved down the river to the obstruc
tions within six miles of the town, to co operate
with the land forces.
The r-bel force menacing Plymouth is reported

much of the brunt of the eugagement. The rebels'
artillery fire has been directed on them, and it is
said that. on tae gunboat lkiintishell several have
been killed and wounded. All the citizens have
left Plymouth, ano most of them are quartered on
Roanoke _lsland. Several of the rebel sheds fell
in the town.
During the eAgagement the -rebels captured a
member of the 2IT Nortn_earolina Loyal Regiment,
who formerly had deserted, they allege, tram the
7th Rebel Regimental that State; and it is reported
that he was hung on the spot, without even so
much as the form of a trial. This is more of rebel
brutality, and it appears that a new malignity is
developing itself in the breasts of the minions of
It is rumored that the rebels have also made a
demonstration simultaneous with this, in the vi
cinity of Newbern. The Confederate haves a grelt
anxiety to redeem the State of Nor.h Carolina, as
they see that it is last receding from their grasp.
Though they may use exertions amost superhu

The Secretary ot the Navy sent to the House to.
day the report of the Solicitor of tie Treasury refs.
Dye to the disposition of prize cases. The report,
which is very voluminous, details the history of
the investigation requested by. the counsel of the
captors in the case of the prize Anne. regarding
the conduct of the offt,iers of the District Court, and
other persons a leged to be guilty of irregularities,
in the custody and detention of prize property and
the prrcieds thereof. '
The Solicitor refrains, in summing 'np the re-_
snits of the testimony, from any judgment upon
the acts of the two gentlemen, one in a judicial and
the idler in a 1. gislative foosttion, whose. conduct
ha., been the subject of some aziimadyersion on the
part c 4 witneese , . also by counsel, and concludes
with rega d to the general results of the investiga
lion that "the Navy Department and the country
w.l.fiorm their own judgment; but for may own
gait, I think it would hate been unreasonable to
expect of public officers the display of more abill y
at :c: zeal and vapaelties than have been exhibited
by these connected with the prize proceedings:
and that, although there have been delays and
irregularities, yet, on the whole, these proceed
ings will compare favorably in point of integrity,
economy and despatch, with like proceedings in
any count: y, at any time."
