Latest Mew* from Plymouth?'The Rebel Ram Commands all its Approaches? Other Points Threatened. New Tom, April 84.?The Times' Newborn letter of the 20th states that tho enemy before Plymouth numbered ten or twelve thousand, and were repulsed in four distinct charzes with great slaughter. Firing ceased on Tuesday morning, and it is supposed Gen. Wessel. with his brave garrison surrendered; nothing definite, however, is known. None of our ves sels have been able to reach them since Sunday. Our force numbered about two thousand. On Wednesday morning the transport John Far ren carried np eight hundred men from New bern, bnt it was not known If she succeeded in reaching Plymouth. The women, children, and negroes from Ply mouth are at Roanoke island. [Correspondence of the Associated Pre**.] Newrkrk, April 20.?The rebel ram now commands the approach to Plymouth, which Erevents us from reinforcing our troops, who ave been fighting day and night since Sunday. Oen. Wessel, who had sixty days' provisions, expresses bis determination to hold the enemy at bay until relieved. He and his troops are in good spirits. The enemy has made assaults of the most desperate cnaracter, and has been repulsed with severe loss each time. Our loss is very slight Every house in Plymouth is riddled by the enemy's shell?, the inhabitants having been removed to Roanoke Island. The ram now has all the inland waters of North Carolina opened to her, and we know not where she may strike the next blow. Firing was beard all this a. m. in the direc tion of Washington, and it is supposed that an attack on that place had commenced. General Peck ordered reinforcements to be sent to Plymouth the moment he received news of the attack, bnt they donbtless failed to reach that place, owing to the presence oi the ram at the mouth of the Roanoke river The death of Captain Flnsser leaves Captain French, an officer of tried courage, in com mand of the naval force. He is watching the movements of the ram, and will give her all the annoyance in his power. Qeneral Pickett is in command of the rebels engaged at Plymouth. There is quite a force at Kinston, which it is believed intends to attack this place in connec tion with their ram number 2, at Kinston. Longstreet's cavalry have joined Lee in Virginia, and the rest of his force is on the way to the same place; some are reported to be at Weldon. Many women and children are leaving New bern for Beaufort. The firemen and citizens are ordered to be in readiness at a moment's notice to meet the enemy. THE RED RIVER EXPEDITION. Gen. Banks seen to Advance Again. New Yohk, April 24.?The Herald's Louisi ana correspondence to the 16th says General Banks will advance again from Grand Ecor<?, as soon as reinlorcements and supplies ara re ceived. There was a reconnoissance on the 1.1th, 20 miles on the road to Pleasant bill, and no ene my in force was discovered. Our troops are in excellent spirit?. The latest advices from Gen. Steele state that he is within one day's march of Shreveport, w ith 15,000 men. A rebel force of 1,000 mounted infantry, and a battery, attacked two transports 25 miles above Grand Ecore. A gunboat arrived, silenced the battery, and compelled the rebels to retreat. Gen. Greene and 161 other rebels were killed and left on the field. Gen. Smith arrived about the same time, having marcbed WbtiniiRr.h' ers were captured. f Alt OTHER DISPATCH.] New York, April 24.?Positive information has reached New Orleans that there has been no more fighting. ARMY OF THE POTOMAC. Preparations for the Campaign?A Fight at Warrenton, Virginia?The Antici pated Campaign in Virginia. Washihoton, April 24?[Associated Press dispatch.]?There is a general impression in this city that active movements in Virginia will not be much longer delayed by the armies on both sides. Rumors prevailed to day in re lation to a conflict at Warrenton, Virginia, but the one entitled to most credit is that our troops merely fell back a few miles from that place lor proper purpose?. Gen. Burnside is in Washington. Preparatiens for the Campaign. Abmv of the Potomac, April 22.?Tne Army of the Potomac i6 actively engaged in perfect ing the preparations necessary to insure its success in the campaign in which it is expected to play such an important part during the pre sent spring and the ensuing summer. All the commanders take advantage of every fine day to drill their new recruits. The new troops are fast becoming accustomed to the evolutions of the line and the different duties of the soldier. GREAT BATTLES IN LOUISIANA. The Three Days* Fight?Final Victory of our Troops. New York, April 23.?The New Orleans Picayuce of the 16th instant, received by tde steamer Mississippi, says: The first battle took place on the 7th, in which the Union cavalry, after skirmishing with the enemy and driving them for fourteen miles, until they got two miles beyond Pleas ant Hill, came upon 2,500 Rebel cavalry, posted In a strong position under Gen. Greene. They were charged upon by the Federal cavalry, and after a spirited contest, driven off the field. Onr losses was about forty killed and wounded; that of the enemy about as heavy. The Second Day's Battle. On the 8th, Col. Gandrum's brigade of infan try, with tbe cavalry, pressed forward, and finally met tbe Rebels in strong force under Kirby Smith, Dick Taylor, Mouton. Greene, and Price, with 18,000 to 22,000 men. There was brisk skirmishing, and finally tbe Rebels came on ia force, Gens. Banks and Ransom being upon tbe field. Franklin was sent for, but before he came up the Rebel successes had been great They made desperate charges in mass, and were desperately resisted. The losses on both sides were trightfnl. Finally, alter Franklin bad come up, the Federal force was driven back three and a half miles, but the enemy were checked with fearful slaugh ter by two brigades under Gen. Emory. Night put an end to the contest. The Federals were under Banks, Ransom, Stone and Lee. Many guns were lost. On the Rebel side it is known that Gen. Mouton was killed. Tbe third day's Battle a Union Victory. By falling hack General Banks had effected ft junction with General A. J. Smith, and ar rangements were made to receive the enemy with effect. General Emory had charge of the first line of battle, with Generals McMillan, Dwight, and others. Behind Emory, posted in a hollow, was General Smith's forces. Skir mishing was kept up until about 5 o'clock in the afternoon, when the rebels came np in their old style in masses, in three lines of battle. Our batteries opened upon them with terrible ef fect. The Nineteenth Army Corps was grad ually forced hack. The first line of the rebels bad been entirely broken np by Emory's re sistance, bnt the remaining two pressed on. The Final Charge. Now came the grand coup de main. The Nineteenth, on arriving at the top of the hill, suddenly filed over the hill and passed through the lines of General Smith. We mnsl here mention that tbe rebels were now in bnt two lines of battle, the first having been almost an nihilated by General Emory, what remained having been lorced back into the second line. But these two lines came on exultant and sure of victory. The first passed over the knoll, and all heed less of the long line of cannons and crouching forms of as brave men as ever trod mother earth, pressed on. The second line appeared on tbe crest, and the death signal was sounded. Words cannot describe the awful effects of this discharge. Seven thousand rifles and several batteriet (f artillery, loaded to the muzzle with grape and canister, were fired simultaneously, and the whole center iff the Rebel line wot crushed down at afield of ripe wheat through which a tornado had pasted. It is estimated that one thousand men were burled into eternity or frightfully mangled by this one discharge. No time was given thsm to recover their good order, bnt General Smith ordered a charge, and his men dashed rapidly forward, the boy* of the 19th joining in. Tbe rebels fought boldly and desperately back to tbe timber, on reaching which a large portion broke and fled, fully two thousand throwing aside their arms. In thle charge Taylor's BAtfery wa? retikvn, as were also two of the gtins of Nina's Battery, the I'arrott gun taken from us at Carrion Crow last fall, and one or two others belonging to the rebels, one of which was considerably shattered, besides seven hundred prisoners. A pursuit and desultory fight was kept ap for three miles, when oar men returned to the field of battle. And thus ended this fearful nnd Moody struggle for the control of "Western Louisiana. The Lasses Chicago, April 23.?The New Organs cor respondent of the Journal, writing under date of the 15th Instant, says the loss of ?h? 4th divi sion of the 131h army corps, in the battle on the Mb Instant, was 1,120 killed, wounded and missing. The loss of the 3d division was .130. We lost ten pieces of cannon. No one attaches the least blame to Oenerals Ransom or Frank lin. The movement which resulted in this dis aster wai contrary to the advice of both these officers. They did all that officers obeying the orders of their superiors, under the circum stances, could do. Iu the fight on the Oth instant, our forces drove the rebels ten miles, when they were ordered to retire. Our loss on the 0th instant is reported at 1,OHO killed, wounded and missing. COnOBBSSIOlfAL.
