ed, but captures of L. T. Polk and David Frazer, supposed to be couriers from Columbus, were made. No United States forces having previously approached so near Columbus, the inhabitants uniformly mistook our cavalry for rebel troops. On the thirteenth, I ordered a demonstration to be made in the direction of Columbus, by six companies of cavalry, commanded by Capt. Stewart, supported by the Tenth and Eighteenth regiments of infantry, commanded. respectively by Colonels Morgan and Lawler. ded for successful attack and capture of Columbus. From this near approach, the cavalry returned by Putney's Bend and Elliott's Mills, to Fort Jefferson, communicating with and being joined by the infantry who formed their support. On the thirteenth, Lieut. H. C. Freeman, engineer, with an escort of cavalry explored the different roads leading from Fort Jefferson to Blandville, and selected a strong position for encampment half a mile north of Blandville, on the road to Columbus.

Lander's force being at Pawpaw Tunnels, a station on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, half-way between Hancock and Cumberland, he joined it from New-Creek with a portion of the force there, and ordered the construction of the Great Cacapon Railroad bridge. This was completed on the evening of the fourteenth instant. At four o'clock P. M. on the thirteenth instant, Gen. Lander started south with a small cavalry force. At eight o'clock the same evening, word came back for a portion of the command to move. This was the first intelligence we had of a march being intended, although the command had been turned out twice a day, with blankets of the slung, inspected, marched short distances, and ordered to keep two days cooked rations on hand. It was soon covertly whispered among officers that it was the intention of Gen. Lander to move on Bloomin
Doc. 42.-vessels destroyed in Bull's Bay. Lieutenant Conroy's report. United States bark restless, off Bull's Bay, S. C., Saturday, February 15, 1862. sir: I have the honor to report that on the thirteenth instant, about eleven o'clock A. M., we discovered a vessel ashore on a shoal in Bull's Bay. I sent two armed boats in for the purpose of reconnoitring, and, if possible, to bring her off. On boarding, they found her to be a very old and worthless craft, without a cargo, and with only four negroes on board. While on board the sloop, they discovered three vessels lying at anchor inside the shoals, apparently laden with rice, etc. At half-past 1 A. M., on the fourteenth instant, I sent another armed vessel, with orders to cut these vessels out or destroy them. There not being enough wind all day to bring them out, they were destroyed after dark, and their flags, papers, and arms taken in the boat and brought off with two prisoners. The following are the names of the ve

Galway. A rebel account of the capture. A gentleman who left Nashville shortly after the battle at Fort Donelson communicates to the Mobile Tribune an interesting account of the evacuation and surrender of the city, a portion of which we append: The fight at Fort Donelson, on the thirteenth, fourteenth, and fifteenth of February, was of intense concern to us, and each day's work down there wound up with the statement that the fight would be renewed to-morrow. The fears that the fall of Fort Henry were calculated to inspire had been well-nigh dispelled by the way Fort Donelson was holding out. It was better located, and stronger in men and guns. Pillow, Floyd, and Buckner were there. Pillow had said, Let come what might, he never would surrender the place, and Nashville fel

Early in the night of the thirteenth, three companies of the Forty-third, under Major o fire, and for some hours of the night of the thirteenth inst., to a drenching rain. It would be unjust to ol fort. At three o'clock on the morning of the thirteenth, I moved forward with my brigade, and took positi
ion, and unceasing patience, in accomplishing this work. The effecting of the landing, and the approach to within a mile and a half of the enemy's works on the thirteenth, I consider as great a victory as the engagement of the fourteenth. Owing to the difficult nature of the landing, our men were forced to wade ashore waist-deto report that in pursuance of the orders of Gen. Burnside, and in accordance with the plan of operations agreed upon, I proceeded to land my brigade, on the thirteenth inst., at Slocum's Creek. I took on board the Pilot-Boy about five hundred men of the Twenty-fourth Massachusets Volunteers, and towing the boats of my brigade, crd, Newbern, North-Carolina, March 15, 1862. To his Excellency John A. Andrews, Governor and Commander-in-Chief M. V.

One of my vessels was three or more miles from shore, an

In my last I informed you that we were about starting out on a scouting party, consisting of four hundred from the Twenty-second Kentucky, and about an equal number from the Fortieth and Forty-second Ohio, and one hundred cavalry of the First Ohio squadron, making a force of nearly nine hundred, all under the direct command of Brigadier-Gen. Garfield. We started on Friday, the thirteenth instant, and after two and a half days of the hardest marching that ever any force undertook or went through, we made Pound Gap on Sunday, the fifteenth, at noon. Although our troops were completely broken down and foot-sore, from having to wade creeks from the very beginning to the time we reached the foot of the Cumberland Mountains, we climbed the hill, drove in the pickets, and made short work of it in driving the thieving rascals from their boasted stronghold. When we got to the foot o

Flag-ship Wabash, off St. John's, Fla., March 19, 1862. sir: I had the honor to inform the Department, in my communication of the thirteenth inst., that I had despatched a division of my force to Brunswick, under Commander S. W. Godon, consisting of the Mohican, the Pocahontas, and the Potomska. These vessels crossed St. Simon's bar on the eight inst., and anchored at sundown within two miles of the forts coant, S. W. Godon, Commander and Senior Officer. To Flag-Officer S. F. Du Pont, Commanding South-Atlantic Blockading Squadron. United States steamer Mohican, St. Simon's Island, March 16, 1862. sir: I have the honor to report that on the thirteenth inst. I started in the Potomska, accompanied by the Pocahontas, with the launch and howitzer of this ship in charge of Lieut. Miller in tow, and proceeded through the inland passage toward the Altamaha River. I had heard that there were one or
swamps to Savannah, with news of the surrender, immediately after hauling down the flag. They remained in the Fort during the next day, when Gens. Hunter, Benham and Gilmore visited it. Colonel Terry, of the Seventh Connecticut, is now in command, having come over with his regiment on the night of the surrender. He and his men well deserve the honor, for their services have been untiring and important throughout the entire investment, and during the actual bombardment. On Sunday, the thirteenth, the prisoners were divided into two parties; the officers and about two thirds of the men were placed in the Ben De Ford, the remainder on the Honduras, and conveyed to Bay Point. Here they were transferred to the Star of the South and the McClellan, for transportation to Fort Columbus, New-York harbor. As the McClellan was leaving the wharf, a sad procession marched down, in dusty and shabby gray uniforms, unarmed, each man bearing his bundle. Just so I had seen them come out of Fort
