At the of our helpless condition bales of hay were thrown overboard for the crew and sufferers; when all was provided for, the correspondents leaped into the current and swam to Ihe nearest hav bales, and then endeavored to make the Louisiana shore. While floundering about in this effort, tbe rebels ceased firing, and sent out a boat to seize us. After having been in the water about an hoar, all the survivors were picked up. Fourpersons were killed by the explosion or drowned the rest were all saved, five of them badly scalded, ana" one wounded by shell In alfabout 100 shots were fired, at least 20 of which were fired at the bursting vessels, and at ihe crew and passengers struggling in tbe water.

The conclusion formed in three weeks' so-jonrn in the limits of the Confederacy, a trip almost across its entire extent by a circuitous mate that led almost down to fhe Gulf, then up again through the mountains of East Tennessee to Richmond and along the Valley of St. James, may be briefly summed up. 1st.

Whatever might bare been tbe original intention in opening the Yazoo Pass, every reflective person accompanying the Yazoo expedition must be satisfied that its commanders did the least thing lhat could be done, and that the results ofthe expedition were decidedly beneficial. On the4lh of April the 29th Iowa being posted ou the outer picket line at Shell Mound, received orders to return to camp, strike tents, and go aboard the steamer "Key West" for Helena. At the time we received this order affairs were getting more interesting along our line than anything we had ever before experienced. The rebels perceiving the movement about our camp, began to be careless in tbe use of their sltol and shell, which they sent out In search of our line, in great profusion. But up to the time tlmt ne were ordered in, tiiey threw them so far to our left, that we bail nothing to do but amuse ourselves at their des Iruclion of rebel ammunition and timber. One of tbe f bells, however, just the time of our Quit-ling the post at which your correspondent was placed, struck so close to one of our vidette lhat it sprinkled h m Tiell witb earth, but luckily failed to explode.

There ircre but few troops either through Ibat regon or any part of the Confederacy which we visited; the people" generally prnyne fnr peace, and very anxiously in-qmhag when llie war would be over. While we were at Montgomery, Gen. Joe Johnston and staff passed through, on their way to Yicksbnrg. From Montgomery, we were seul to West Point, on the 12th to Atlanta, Ga., where, contrary to our treatment ai all other places, we were confined in the military prison, on account of complaints that officers of the gnnboai Indianols, and officers of IJoL Straight's command, had been treated with too much civility, by the of almost infinite magnitude.

May, 18 1863. One day hist week, the headquarters of Maj. Gen, Palmer, commanding the 2d division of the 21st army corps, were removed to the vicinity of Cripple Creek, upon which, for months uack, a portion of Ills division has been encamped. The General was no sooner comfortably located, than lie began an exploration of Ibe vnrious roads diverging from ihe lines of his command. One ot those officers who example of daring and enterprise, he made on Friday and Saturday several bold pushes toward fhe lines of the rebel encampments at Bradyviile and Dug Hollow. On Saturday, with a small escort of only twenty men, passed un hour at the house of one Mrs. Youree, some three miles south of the headquarters encamomcnt, on a road following Cripple Creek toward Bradyviile and Mur-feesboro Pike. Madam Tonree. whose five sons were in the rebel army, was, of course, wickedlv secesli, but withal very polite and attentive. She conimnnicated the iact that the rebels were every day or two at her house, tn small parties, hovering about to get a good view of the "Yanks." Believing that the woman would straightway inform the rebels of his visit, the General eave her io understand thai he was iu tlie habit of making frequent excursions through tbe secuou, nnd left, Nest dav, (yesterday anticipating (wlmt'really came' to pass) that the posted by ihe woman, would be on the lookout, he started for another Cripple proceeded to our present camp ground. We have eipended much labor in grading and ditching the grounds, as H is expected will remain here the greater patl of tlie summer. We have hud some very efficient drilling since we came here, but at present tbe picket and fatigue details drain our regiment to such an extent as to prevent battalion drill. These fatigue men are employed in grading the streets in Helena, and on new fortifications which are being erected on the most e -rvated points on Uie bills, in the rear of the city. These points arc well chosen as they command every hill and ravine in this dismissed" from the service, and any soldier niitHrenlins them, should be rlgonmslj dealt with. This sperch was no effort, but was merely nn utieniarc of such, sublime truths, that every soldier's heart nmn have leaped for joy. Mnj. General Oglesby ninuc a brief, pointed and slirring little speech, en dorsing heartily the sentiments proclaimed by Gen. Thomns, remarking in the course o liis speech, n negro was too good tn ki a rebel, not intending that they were belter or as good sis while men, but Unit Ihey were far superior to ihe destroyers of our Carpenter, G; Seaman Carcus, A; Sash Colton, D J.

In other places we were permitted tn pass through the town at will, bul here, it seems, otner prisoTtcrs had been chttred and fed by the popultiet. Hence the unusual stringency in our case.

The escort was made up of the General's 22 men of Company 0., 7th I1L cavalry, under Gapt. Prescotl and two companies of ihe East Middle Tennessee cavalry, 42 strong, commanded by Capta.n Worth'ara. Quite a number of the officers of the Staff volunteered their services; a brisk morning ride and the promise of a sharp skirmish lie-ing (emptauODi that old soldiers cauimt resist. Capt.
