Nbwbbkn, April 20.?The terrible ram which baa been, and is expected to be farther, the caate of so much distraction in this district, is described as follows: In shape she resembles the destroyed ram Merritnac, and like her, carries an instrument of destruction at her prow, which renders her so peculiarly dangerous with wooden vessels. She is built of heavy iron-plat*, brought partly from Wilmington and partly from At lanta, Georgia, and is of rather olumsy move ment. She possesses one aperture at her fore part for the use of a heavy can; but her main purpose is to destroy bv concussion. She is accompanied by a formidable water battery, securely protected by cotton bales, behind which artillery and small arms can be evsran'i narfi It is understood that the rebels have likewise two others* one at Kinston and one at Golds bcro. At the latter point they are known to have organized a complete naval brigade. From this, and in connection with the heavy force now menacing?supposed to number some sixteen or seventeen thousand men and some thirty-six pie:es of artillery?it is evident that the rebels design to compel the Union evacuation of North Carolina. LATER. Important if Trc.e?Our Flag still Floating Over the Fortifications at Plymouth. New burn, April 23.?Beports from Ply mouth have it that our flag still floats over onr fortifications in the place, though the enemy have possessed the town and the river. It is said that Gen. WesselU retired with bis force into the fortifications with fifteen days' pro visions. This report appears to be believed. On the arrival of more gunboats we shall be able to reach Plymouth and ascertain the fact. Washington and Newborn are much better fortified than Plymouth was. The funeral obsequies of Commander Flus ser took place here on the 23d. THE RED RIVER EXPEDITION. The late Rattles iaLouisiana?The Rebels Maintain their Position?Banks Retreats to Grand Ecore?Kirby Smith Reported Killed. St. Lotjip, April 25 ?Cairo dates of yester day, by mail, say the steamer Yon Phnl, irom New Orleans the evening of the 18th, has ar rived. It seemed to be generally conceded that the battles in Louisiana had been against Banks for, while the enemy remained on the ground after Saturday's fight, Banks retreated forty miles. The transport Black Hawk suffered consid erably from the enemy, besides having several killed and wounded. The report that there was another fight on the 10th was a mistake. The steamers Rob Roy and Mattie Stephens bad arrived at New Orleans from the Red river, having run the gauntlet of a large num ber of guerrillas on the banks. The Rob Roy had four guns, and fought most of her way down. A cannon ball passed through the clerk's office. One soldier was killed and five wounded on th'e Mattie Stephens. The rebels are still in the vicinity of Pleasant Ridge. Our army was at Grand Ecore, forti fying on both banks of the river. Admiral Porter reported that there were only five feet of water at Grand Ecore. The gun boat Eastport waa aground there. All the large boats were below, but those of light draught were above. Prisoners say that Kirby Smith and Sibly were killed in the recent battles. THR WAR I* THY.

St. Louif*, April 25.?Memphis dates to the 22d say Forrest's entire force was moving to ward Alabama, followed by Grierson. Polk is said to be marching North. Forrest, will probably join him. On the morning of the 2ist Grierson's cavalry came upon some of Forrest's troops near Hudsonville, Mississippi. A Sharp fight ensued, and the rebels retreated in ?Le direction of Jackson, passing through Lagrange. A number of prisoners, horses, mules, wagons, &c., were taken and carried to Mem phis. Gen. Price has evacuated Camden, Arkansas, and Gen. Steele occupied the place. About 100 guerillas burned a large lot of wood near Farfleld Point on Friday, and captured a number of citizens of Brownsville. Memphis, April 22.?Grierson has picked up a few of Forrest's men; but Forrest keeps his troops well together, and is too strong for suc cessful attack. His headquarters are still at Jackson, Tenn. From Arkansas. St. Lotris, April 26.?Late Little Rock dates say that Mr. Allison, of Jefferson county, has been elected Speaker of the Arkansas Legisla ture. Mr. Carson, a member of the House, re cently captured by guerrillas, has escaped, and arrived at Little "Rock.
