SELECTED LETTERS OF SALMON P. CHASE
NEW YORK, June 6th, 1863.
Just arrived here by the " Morning Star." At the Belieze received the following telegram,
NEW ORLEANS, May
29th, - 2 P. M., 1863.
To G. S. DENNISON, Special Agent
Our losses at Port Hudson not as great as represented. Negroes reported by all parties to have fought well. Enemy yesterday tried to get through our left wing but were driven back with heavy loss. This morning heavy cannonading continually. All going well. Pickets of rebels who have deserted to our lines report provisions short at Port Hudson. Gen. Banks is well and in fine spirits and confident of entire success.
