The following is an official report of (be pa. t performed by the Fifteenth Maine Vols., lu the severe engagement of Mansfield, l.a., on the 8tb of April, and of Pleasant Hill, Lu., ou the 9lh; our forces beiug uuder command of Major General Banks, and the rebel forces uuder General Dick Taylor. The battles are reported as beiug the most severe ever fought in the Gulf Department. We are assured by au officer who participated in both battles, aud with whom we are personally acquainted, that officers of the Kith Corps who fought ou the bloody Held of Shiloh, represent the bring at Pleasant Hill as more severe aud deadly than at Shiloh. We hive already given the particulars ol the two battles. The following is the official report of the Fifteenth Maine, Col. Isaac Dyer, which wc publish for the bene lit of those of our readers having friends in the Kegimeut: HKADql Altl Kits 15TH Me. VET. Voi.8., I Grand Ecokk, La., April 13, 1884. j Sir :—I have the honor herewith to trans mit a report of the doings of the Fifteenth Kegimeut of Maiuu Veteran Vols., since leav ing Natchitoches, La., ou the Olh inst., uulil our return to Grand Ecore, La, ou the 11 lb inst., together with the part which the Regi ment performed in the engagements at Mans Held, La, aud Pleasant Hill, La., on the 8Lh aud 9th lusts. We struck tents at Xachitochcs on the morniug of the bib inst., aud took up our line of march for l’leasaut Hill, where we arrived on the evening of the 7lli. On the inornlug of the 8th resumed our march in the direction of Mansfield, hailing at about 3 l'. 9. having marched a distance of eight miles. At 4 a. m. we were ordered to MansUeld where Gen. Lee's Cavslry aud a detachment of the 13th Army Corps were actively eugaged with the enemy. We immediately proceeded to the ITout, making the distance of six miles in an hour aud a quarter. As we arrived upon the Held a general stampede was taking place on the part of stragglers aud others, creatiug a great panic amoug the teamsters, negroes and army followers. To such an extent did the panic prevail, that the road leading to the Held was literally blockaded with terror-strick en teamsters and Hoeing cavalrymen, render ing our progress extremely difficult. At this critical juncture the order wss given for our regiment to halt ! fir bayonets ! load ! These orders lielng promptly executed we ad vanced through the panic-stricken crowd and arrived upon the Held without further deten tion. Arriving upon the Held our regiment, with the lOoth S. Y. Vols.. was ordered into position on the extreme left of the line, where the enemy bad thrown a large force and were making a desperate effort to flank us. We took position upon the crest of a small ravine, forming under a heavy bre of the enemy. The line being established, we opened a sharp Are upon the enemy, to which be briskly re sponded. Three desperate ebons were made by the enemy to gain the crest of the ravine, bat in each instance he was repulsed aud driven back by tbe well-directed lire of our meu. We held our position at this point un til the enemy retreated from the Held, at about 8 p. u. Aiiuougn uie enemy airerieu a severe lire upon our position, so inaccurate was their aim and so well protected our line, that our regiment sustained hut little loss ; the follow log being the casualties during the engage ment, viz. t Allied—Private James P. Withain, Co. E. H'oamled—Private Cornelius Fish, Co. E, slightly in arm ; Private Joseph Carey. Co. E, slightly in hand ; Private William E. SkilHu, Co. H, seriously in left side; Private Charles Woo I, Co. I, seriously in fore arm. ruj—Privates John F. Leighton and Angus McGilvery, Co. A; Sergeant Joseph E. Latham; Privates Page F. Grover, John H. Hayden, Leemou II. Hard and Abram T. Green, Co. B; Priyal* John Iluston rnvaife James Brennan, Co. I; Privates Thomas McDonald aud George Morrison, Co. K. At about 11 P. m., orders were received to fall back to Pleasant Hill, which we did in good order, arriving at about !l A. »>., on the #th. Immediately upon our arrival at Pleas Hill, we were ordered into line of battle on the lelt of the posiliou on the eastern side of the clearing, where we remained until 11 a. m., when we were relieved by a regiment of the Kith Army Corps. We then retired a short distauce to the rear for the purpose of allowing our meu to rest, they having marched twauty-eight miles and endured the fatigue of an engagemeut without sleep or rest, since the morning of the 8th. We here held our selves in reserve until 4 p. si., when, our line being bard pressed, we were ordered into ac tion. At tbe moment of our being ordered iuto ac tion, the situation was most critical. Tbe enemy had thrown a heavy force upon the right of our line, and were endeavoring to flank us, concealed by a thick clump of woods, at tbe tame time pressing our front with des peration. We were llrst ordered into a posi tion on the extreme right, but before estab lishing our line, so severe was the pressure upou the centre of the posiliou tiial we were ordererd back lo sup|iort Hie right of the ceu tre. We arrived iu position at a most oppor tune momeiit, when our liue was being gradually pushed back by tbe pressure up on it. Tbe enemy had gained the clearing, and were seeking lo effect a posiliou behind the buildlug*. We were moving by the left llaukdown the road running parallel with our lines, and when arririug opposite the cen tre, took posiliou uuder cover of a fence in rear of the buildings tbe enemy were seeking to gain possession of, aud opened a sharp lire upon them. The struggle was a fierce one,— the turning point in the engagement,—but af ter several well-directed volleys, briskly re sponded to by the enemy, they gave way. aud retreated to the woods, closely pursued by our regiment, with other regiments of the Brigade. After retreating to the cover of the woods the enemy made a stand, but fell back after a few volleys from us. In pursuing the enemy we advanced so far iuto the woods, that tliay, in retreating were assembling on our right flank. We then formed a line face to tbe rear on the left of our batalliou. which movement was executed by the men in good order aud without confusion. The enemy then advanced and opened fire upon us, hut after several well-directed volleys from our meu, they retired iu confusion. We then filed from the woods ; and. the enemy having re tired from the field, we were ordered to the right of our original liue, where we bivouac ed for tbe nigbt. w“v- “tiv-u uums iu nimii mi; rv^i meat was actively engaged, we were subjected to a vary heavy fire from the enemy, occupy ing several important positions; yet so gal lantly did the men behave,—in every instance welting for orders,—and so successful were the efforts of the officers iu keeping the regi ment together, that our casualties are but few. They are as follows: Hound'd.—Adjutant Joseph A. Claik, se riously in right arm; 1st Lieut. John R. Coates, seriously in leg; ,‘id Lieut. Patrick Neville, se riously in ankle; Sergt. Heury S. Rich, Co. E,slightly in hip; Private Jouatban Randall, Co. A, slightly in right leg; Private lliiton B. Wright, Co. A, slightly iu left arm; Pri vate Richard Ryan,Co. A, slightly Iu left leg; Private James Roux, Co. C, seriously in left side; Private Alexander Craves, Co. C, slight ly in leg; Private Albert Hutcheuson.Co. C, seriously in neek; Private Wm. II. Ward, Co. O, seriously in right hip ; Privae John C. Lib by, Co. H, seriously in arm. During the eutire engagement, the officers and men conducted themselves in a most dis creet and courageous manner,each vicing with the other to gaiu for our arms a glorious vic tory. I have no hesitation in saying that each officer and man did his whole duty; and were I to make especial mention of peisonal acts of bravery on the part of either officers sir men, I fear it would be but doing injustice toothers equally as brave. Early on the morning of the 10th. we re ceived orders to fall back to Grand Kcore.— We took up our line of inarch at $ a. m , ar riving at (irand Kcorc at noon on the lltii inst. All of which i* respec t fully submitted, (Signed) Ihaac Dvkm, Col. 15th Me Vet. Vole. TTknuy A. Shorey, l**t Lieut, and Acting Adjutant. To Capt. O. 1*. Hkhvky, A. A.

We are indebted to an officer in the Maine Fifteenth for the following li*ts of the killed, wounded and missing, iu the Maine Regiment* engaged in the severe battles of Mansfield and Pleasant Hill, La., on the Sth and IHh of April. The lists are possibly imperfect so far as some of the names are concerned, as it is very diffi cult, in the absence of the rolls, for a corres pondent, no matter how careful, to avoid er rors, particularly iu initial letters. We had no means of giving the place of residence of the sufferers, as the regiments have been en listed or reorganized since the last pub lished report of the Adjutant General.— The same officer also sent us a list of the casualties iu the Maine 2‘.Uh, Col. Beal, but as we received a full report of that regi ment from Adjutant Gould, which we have already published, we omit it iu this connec tion. TUIBTKBKTH V A INK -COL. BUST. Killed—Hergi.

NoUtiiiiun Mon mi.v.—The May number of this rising Msga/.iue is before us. We have ouly time to glance hastily at its contents without being able to judge of the merits of ! each particular article.

Cast upon the Pavement.*’ This is a common phrase in Paris, France, mi'! pregnant with meaning. It has been said by some philosopher that all the crimes of man l>egin with the vagrancy of childhood. In perambulating the streets of our city, one may see hundreds upon hundreds of boys, from twelve to twenty years of age, who have notbiug to do but to loaf round, and spend their lime iu idleness, it is sad to witness such a spectacle in times like these, when the farmers in our vicinity, aud all over the coun try, are much in want of labor. The war has drawn away large numbers who once culti vated the soil aud belong to the producing classes. Such laborers make the substantial riches of any country. It is “ Mother Karlli” that gives us food. Now hundreds of these boys in our city might find prolltablc employment among our farmers, who would be glad to hire them aud pay them good wages. And how much bet ter such employment would be for the boys, for their parents, aud for the country. Seed time has arrived, aud our fanners are desti tute of their usual force. There never has been a lime iu the history of our country when it was more necessary to cultivate tbe earth, and make it yield an increase, than now. It appears to us tiiat some enterprising person iu our city, might gather a large num ber of boys who would lie willlug to go into the country and labor upon the farms this season. Provided such help were found here, and notice given through our public journals, our farmers would gladly avail themselves of it, and furnish protltable work to hundreds wiio are now living in idleness. We throw out the hint hoping it may iuduce some one or more to interest themselves in the work and prosecute it with effect. OlllGIXAL AX It SELECTED. A collection in Ur. Tyng's church, New York, iu aid of its missionary chapel, on last Sabbath, amounted to $h,000. 8y*Jobn Ganna, of the 1st Maine Cavalry, was wouuded a week ago in a skirmish with Mosby's guerrillas,at Warrenton, Va. jy The remains of Mr. Beuj.

Snch is the demaud for passage to the I'nited States from (treat Britain, that it is necessary to secure it some time in advance of the day ol sailing. {ty The Massachusetts Representatives in the Legislature, have voted to increase their pay F-,00 a day. They now have $-100 a session. The Boston Advertiser trusts the Senators will not give their concurrence to the measure. The City Marshall of Bath has notified tbe dealers in intoxicating liquors that if they do not desist, the law will b.* enforced. Vio late™ of other laws are not usually notified before-hand of such iuteutious, but are called upon with a “greeting." 8y i lie first National Bank at Bath has declared its first dividend, of seven per -cent. This institution differs from any other Nation al Bank in the State, in that it is a new bank, organized under the National Banking Law, and not a reorganized institution. We arc indebted to Col. K. C. Mason, of the Maine Seventh, for a printed qppy of the “ Instructions for the government of the officers and nou-coinmissioned officers of the 7th Me. Volunteers,” drawn from the Army Regulations, and compiled by Col. Mason, who is a captain in the 17th L\ S.

Mr. Phillips was born in India, and will give many interesting tacts in relation to that country. '^“Mr. Charles R. Briggs, of Northfleld, Yt., was murdered near his residence«ti Tues day of last week, by being shot through the head. He was a Deputy Sheriff, and was known to have $2000 with him ou the day of the murder, but no money was found on his remains. Great excitement prevails in North field on account of the affair. Sy A writer in the Batli Times opens the Pophain Controversy, for 1804, with nearly two columns of minion, all ou the question where the first religious serving was held ou New Kugland soil. When this question is definitely settled we would suggest another, of equal practical iui|>ortance, for the consid eration of autiquariaus; whether Popham's name was accented on the first or last sylla ble; whether it was pronounced Popham or PopAam. Then another great practical ques tion is not yet settled; whether the liret fish chowder served up by Popham's colouy, was made of cod or haddock. The Bath Times is noxious for the reputation of Portland, ami wishes to know about the reception of the l'Jth Maiue, safing the Portland papers were savage on the Au gusta people because they did not entertain some returning regiments. Kip Van Winkle is out iu his reckoning, as usual. The Port land papers said less about the Augusta alleg ed neglect lhau most other papers iu the State. The Augusta papers were about the severest of any. Portland has given costly receptions to more regiments than all other cities in the Stute combined. She gave a magnificent reception to at least oue Kenne bec regiment. Iu relation to the I'.'th Maiue, it is due to farts to say, that it was very diin cult to ascei tain definitely the movements of the regiment on its return. It was reported in New York, that it would arrive iu this city on the Sabbath, and hundreds were iu readi ness to greet, honor and feast them. But they didn't come. The next report was that they were iu Bostou. A special dispatch was sent to ascertain when they were to leave, ami the reply indicated an evening arrival.— Instead of this, they came to Camp Berry much earlier, and had actually been in camp sevrral hours before it was knowu in the city that they had arrived. The cars did not come into the city, but left the regiment iu Cape Elizabeth. More than this: they left their gallant commander behind, in Boston, to at tend to important business, and we are in formed that a special request was made by the ollieer then iu command at that encampment, —probably after consultation with the ollieer of the regimeut,—that no demonstration should be made. The regiment was well and comfortably provided for, and no man of them lias ever been heard to utter a complaiut. We wish they could have had an ovation; such au one as we know our people were pre pared to give them. It would have been no mure formal or balf-and-half demonstration. Colored Troops.—Tin* vote in the Semite to make the pay of black troops the same as for white soldiers, was carried, yeas *J2, najs 5. Maryland, West Virginia, aud Mis souri Senators voted yeas; so did McDougal, of Cal., and some other democrats. The nays were Buckalevv of l*a., Davis aud Powell, of Ky., Saulsbuay, of Del., and Hendricks, of Maryland. ty*" The Boston Courier attributes the war to the temperance aud anti-capital pun ishment agitators. We ffon’t know about the temperance agitators, hut we have no doubt a liberal use of hemp three years ago, would have had a salutary effect.
