Partial List of the Killed Wounded. and Corretpandtnet af fA Nete- York Times .- OsraaTMBHT or tan Goiv, Niv Otuai, Saiurdsy, April ifi, 1864. J The history of the rebellion has had another fearful page added to its record. Tbe gallant soldiers of the East and the West have, side by side, emulated each other in devotion to their country's cause ; they have fallen side by side as tbey have together tri umphed over the common enemy, and throughout all time tbe fire-side stories of the homes of those who live In the Upper Mississippi Valley will be de tails of how their fathers fought shoulder to shoulder for freedom along with their brothers of New-Eng land homes. No Information has reached this city, of an official character, but there are continual arrivals of wounded, of prisoners, and intelligent persons attached to the steamers In the Red River trade. From all these witnesses have been gathered such particulars as we have of the battles of tbe 7th, 8th and 9th. The account published in the New-Orleans Era, of the 14th 'nst.j from my most Intimate acquaintance with the countiy where the battles took place, seems to be justly entitled to precedence, snd from that sonrce I am almost entirely Indebted for the details of the battles. The country lying between Grand Eeore, which Is the river landing of Nactchedoiches and Shreveport, one hundred miles in extent, is not alluvial but level land, broken by slightly elevated ridges, bisected in places by bayous, which empty Into Red River. The distance between the Shreveport road and the river varies from five to tea miles, which intervening land Is almost entirely composed of Impenetrable swamp. It is therefore perceivable that the gunboats are useless to the army after it leaves Grand Score. The whole distance from Nactchedotches to Shreveport is more or less a low sandy ridge, broken by straggling forests of pine and scrub oaks. Crump's Mills consists of one or two miserable bouses, and there are ao settlements, the plantations that once existed having been long abandpned, until you get to Pleasant Hill, which Is a little village situated on a low ridge, containing in p'ace times probably 300 inhabitants. Just beyond the town are still the marks of the track of a hurricane that, some two years ago, nearly destroyed every house in the place. This drift Is lower tbsn the ridge on which the town Is built ; it Is very dense, the road having been cut through the fallen timber and tbe sand-bills, wnich were thrown up by the roots of tbe trees. On the left of Pleasant Hill, and on the right, up to the edge of the "drift,", ate abandoned plantations, here and there covered with groups of low, second growth pine. Passing on, you come to WiLSOK'g plantation a place Of clssitd land on each side of the road, surrounded by dense woods. Just beyond are Bayou de Paul and the old Sabine Road, which make the place by nature a strong military position. Two miles beyond Wilton's is Mansfield, the shire town of De Soto Parish, k very pretty place, containing bOO Inhabitants. Our army broke up Its encampment on the 6th Inst, and marched along the Shreveport Road twenty-one miles, the cavalry in advance, resting at Crump's Mil's, the supporting Infantry some four miles in the rear, on a pleasant baou. famous for affording good spring; water la its vicinity. On the morning of the next; day, the 7th, at daylight, the cavalry started, and ere It had gone two miles, com menced heavy skirmishing with the enemy. This running fight was kept np for fourteen miles, until our cavalry passed tarough the drift above Pleasant Hill, and reached the open gelds, known as Wilson's plantation. Here was a heavy body of rebel Infantry, 2,500 strong, deployed along the edges of tbe woods, by which disposition our men were, to avoid them, compelled to charge over the abandoned fields. The only Union soldiers that had advanced far enough to take part la the fight, which was inevitable, was the cavalry brigade of Lsa't corps, commanded by Col. Haiai Roaursos. As be had either to attack or be attacked, he decided to take the initiative, and he led his men in with such a dash and vigor, that at last the enemy was complete ly whipped and driven from the field. This engagement lasted two hours and a hair, and our losses amounted to about forty killed and wounded, tbe enemy's being at least as many. Col. Ro bis so a pursued the retreating rebels as far as Bayou da Paul, where he found they had received heavy reinforcements, Including four pieces of artillery, and were again la line of battle waiting attack. As It was nearly dark, and the risk was too great la again attacking witn his small force, he placed bis men In the most advantageous position available, and await, tied the progress of, events. Early on the following morning, the 8th, the cavalry, supported by a brigade of Infantry, under CoL LAaiaca, resumed Its march, Tbe enemy was dis covered to be on thd alert, and a battle almost in. stantly commenced,' Col. LaanacM's Infantry brigade was on the fight of tbe roadv and CoL Ltjcab cavalry brigade on the left. The skirmishing was very fierce, and every foot of grouad woa from the enemy had to be taken by bard knocks, but at two o'clock In the afternoon oar force had compelled the enemy to retreat beyoad Pleasant II UL Oar loss, as wail as the enemy's, was very severe during this time.

About 5 o'clock the firing -between the tktrtnttherp become very hot, aad la a abort time our skirmish liae was driven baek vpoa the mala body by aa overwhelming force. The whole strength of the enemy was then advanced end heavy and repealed volleys were discharged aad replied to on oar right aad centre.- Soon this portion of oar line became heavily engaged, and all oar available strength was required to prevent their beiog crushed by the masses ef the enemy. Our left, which was now, also, hotly fighting, wst necessarily much weakened, and It was observed that a strong bbdy of the enemy was roassla la a dense piece of woods, preparatory to dashing down and flanking this end of our line. The danger was plain and Imminent, but there was no remedy. Gen. Stow or dered Gen. Lis to have Nin's battery withdrawn, although it was doing great execution, In order that It might not become a prize to the enemy, and Gen, Lis sent his Ald-de-Camp, CoL J. S. Baisni, to withdraw the battery. Oa reaching tbe point, Its femoral was fouad Impossible, nearly every one of the horses having been killed. In a few moments more a solid mass of the rebels, under eommand of Gen. Motrroir, swept down apon the spot and fottr of the gons were tasen, the other two being dragged from the field by band. The havoc made ta the ranks of the enemy at this point of the action Is represented as appalling, the whole six gons belching forth doable charges of grape and canister ; and some five or six rounds were fired between the time the rebels left the woods until the artillerymen were forced from their pieces. Aa the rebels were in mass, the execution inch a shower of missiles caused can be easily Imagined. Mobtom fell mortally wounded. Tbe two senior officers of Dims battery were wounded, Lieut. Snow mortally, hs having since died. The fighting on all parts of onr line was now at short range, and to ate the expression of one of the participants, " we were holding oa by the skin of oar teeth only." It was known that FaAXXLia's troops had been sent for, and anxious and wistful were the glsnces cast to the rear. Gea, Cameko, with hla brigade came up, and going at once into action on the right, where the battle again waxed hottest, created the Impression that the veterans ot the Nine- teenth had arrived, and a glad and exultant shout went np from our wearied aad desperately situated little band. This belief was strengthened by the arrival of CerJ. F samara, who dashed boldly into the thickest of the fray, cap in hand and cheering oa the mea. Gea. Basks, too, seemed ubiquitous, riding wherever the men wavered, and by personal example Inciting them to renewed deeds of daring aad reckless valor. Cols. Cxask and Wixsoa, with other members of the staff, tabre in hand, mixed with the soldiers on foot and aorsebsck, and cheered and en coursged them to continue the unequal fiahb But human beings could not longer withstand such fierce and overpowering onslaughts as our men were bearing up against, and our line Anally gave way at all points, and the men fell back fiercely contesting tbe ground they yielded. Unfortunately a sad mishap befell them at this time. Tbe large and comber-some wagen train blocked up the way; tbe frightened horses dashed through the infantry lists, ealingled ' themselves with tbe artillery, and created a momentary but unfortunate confusion. This gave the rebels. who were rapidly pressing us, posssssioa of several pieces of artillery. The enemy followed our men step by step for three and a half miles, but he w as advancing to meet a fearful retribution. The Nineteenth Army Corps had been ordered to stop and form its line of battle the retreating Union troops passed tnrough this line and formed la the rear. The rebels thinking they bad re pulsed our whole army, dashed impetuously on, and thought the line, but half visible in tne woods betore them, was another feeble but desperate stand of a tew men. . Gen. Emost commanded thla force, consisting of two lull brigades, and he ordered the fire to be re served until the rebels were within short range, when irom both in fautry and the artillery posted thickly along his liner a storm of Iron and lead was hurled upon tne toe tnat merairy mowea mem aown. i ns rebels halted in amazement, bat atill they fought and bravely. Volley after volley was discharged from each side full into the ranks or their opponents, but neither aave algns of yielding, aad night charitably threw her mantle over the ghastly scene, aad enforced a cessation pf hostilities. The two divisions, under command or Gen. A. J Sima, belonging to the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Army Corps, had reached Pleasant HilL and were there halted, Gea. Baxxs determined to withdraw his army to that point, (or tbe sake of the advantageous podttioa which he could there occupy, know lng tnat tne enemy wouia ioiiow wnai iney supposea to be a demoralized armv. In aceorriance with this plan of operations, all our men were quietly withdrawn from the enemy's front, and the fine of march taken up for Pleasant H1U. This conjunction of his forces was aatufactority enected, ana tne result cob-fidently awaited, ho well was the movement conducted that although the first body started at 10 o'clock, and tbe remainder were not under way until nearly day, the rebels bad not the slightest suspicion of what was aolnc on. Gen. Fbaxkuh was conspicuous during this part of the day, rallying his men, and two horses were killed under him ; Capt. Cbapmah, of his staff, had botn feet taken off by a round shot, and the horse of Capt Faku was killed at the same tune. THK THIRD OAT'S WGHT. At 7 o'clock on Satin day morning onr foreea were all at Pleasant Hill, and tbe rebels were advancing, cavalry in front, eadeevorlag to discover oar position. Col. O. P. Gooniao. with his brigade of Lin's cavalry corps, was sent oat on the Shreveport road, to meet tne enemy and -draw him oa. . He had gone about a mite, when he came apon the rebel advance. Skirmishing Immediately ensaed, and accord-lna to the Dlae he jlowly fell back. The fight was very sharp between these cavalry bodies, and ' GooniM"!- lost nearly forty 'men kiHed and wounded, lnflictnig, however, as muca damage as he received.-' Among his casoaltiea are Capt.
