n the river, rounding to occasionally and giving us broadsides. This running fight continued until he reached the shelter of the batteries on the Iron Banks above Columbus. We continued the action, and drove him behind his batteries in a crippled condition. We could distinctly see our shells explode on his decks. The action lasted over an hour, and terminated, as I think, in a complete defeat of the enemy's boats, superior in size and number of guns to the Essex and St. Louis. On the twelfth, Gen. McClernand requested me to make a reconnaissance toward the Iron Banks. I did so, and offered the enemy battle by firing a round shot at their battery, but they did not respond, nor did I see any thing of their boats. I have since been informed, through the General, that the boats of the enemy were completely disabled, and the panic became so great at the Iron Banks that the gunners deserted their guns. The fire of the St. Louis was precise, and the shot told well. The officers an

Our first line of battle was formed on the twelfth instant, in some open fields opposite the enemy's centre. On the thirteenth we we on the road, four miles from Fort Henry. At sunrise on the next day, (the twelfth inst.,) I was joined by Col. Dickey's cavalry, and marched with my whole command urth brigade, Second division. We left Fort Henry on the morning of the twelfth instant, arriving near Fort Donelson the same evening. Immediately on our arrivalers in the recent attack on Fort Donelson, Tennessee. On Wednesday, the twelfth instant, the regiment, being a part of Colonel J. Cook's brigade, Second division,and was a source of no little embarrassment in our after operations. On the twelfth we had quiet, but we saw the smoke of a large number of gunboats and steamboat
, but their own people ; and from the occupation of this important point, I am satisfied, if our opportunities are improved, great results will follow. Many of the citizens have fled, many remain, and there is reason to believe most of them will return. I have just heard the municipal government has been restored. Very respectfully, etc. T. H. Stevens, Lieut. Com'g, Senior Officer present. Philadelphia press account. Jacksonville, Fla., March 17, 1862. On Wednesday, the twelfth inst., at seven A. M., signals were made by the Ottawa to get under way, and in fifteen minutes we were steaming up the St. John's, bound to Jacksonville. The weather was rather inauspicious — sun obscured, air damp and chilly, and wind prophetic from N. N. E. Yet withal the trip was not unpleasant. As we left Mayport astern, the vessels took their regular positions in line of sailing: Ottawa (acting flag-ship) leading; Seneca, Pembina, Isaac P. Smith, and Ellen, following. The latter steam

Meantime the enemy continued every day to reenforce New-Madrid from Island No.10, until, on the twelfth, they had nine thousand infantry, besides a considerable force of artillery, and nine gun-boats. The fleet was commandeiment, who had been sent to Cairo for the purpose. They were at once shipped to Sikeston, reached here at sunset on the twelfth, were placed in battery during the same night, within eight hundred yards of the enemy's main work, so as to command thare detailed as guards to the proposed trenches and to aid in constructing them. They marched from camp at sunset on the twelfth, and drove in the pickets and grand guards of the enemy, as they were ordered, at shouldered arms and without returning ty-ninth regiments Ohio infantry, under Col. Fuller and Lieut.-Col. Gilbert, respectively. On the afternoon of the twelfth inst. I detailed companies A and F, Twenty-seventh, and I and H, Thirty-ninth Ohio, under command of Lieutenant-Col. Kennet
nction with the naval force, on the morning of the eleventh, a rendezvous was made at Hatteras Inlet. Flag-Officer Goldsborough having been ordered to Hampton Roads, the naval fleet was left in command of Com. Rowan. Early on the morning of the twelfth, the entire force started for Newbern, and that night anchored off the mouth of Slocum's Creek, some eighteen miles from Newbern, where I, had decided to make a landing. The landing commenced by seven o'clock the next morning, under cover of the army and navy of the United States on yesterday, Friday, at noon. The incidents of the expedition, briefly stated, are these: The fleet under my command, and that of the army, left Hatteras Inlet at half-past 7, on Wednesday morning, the twelfth inst., and arrived, without accident or delay, on the point selected for disembarking the troops, and within sight of the city of Newbern, at sunset on the evening of the same day, where we anchored for the night. On Thursday morning I hoisted m

The perpetrator of this foul murder was subsequently promoted by the rebel government. Dr. J. M. Homiston, surgeon of the Fourteenth New-York or Brooklyn regiment, captured at Bull Run, testifies that when he solicited permission to remain on the field and to attend to wounded men, some of whom were in a helpless and painful condition, and suffering for water, he was brutally refused. They offered him neither water nor anything in the shape of food. He and his companions stood in the
