Doc. 11.-St. John's River expedition. Report of Lieut.-Commander Breese. United States gunboat Ottawa, off Bay point, May 28, 1864. Sir: In compliance with your instructions of the twenty-second instant, I got under way in this vessel, with the Columbine in company, and proceeded to Picolata, where I had a consultation with General Gordon on the subject of the expedition. It was arranged that I should take two hundred and seventy troops on board this vessel and one hundred on boar The understanding between the General and myself was, that I should go on up as far as the pilot could take the vessel, which I thought would be about Brown's Landing, two or three hundred yards above Dunn's Creek. At 7.20 P. M. of the twenty-second instant I came to anchor off Brown's Landing, about two hundred and fifty yards distant, and just astern of us the Houghton anchored. Not knowing why she came up, I took the dingey and went on board to ascertain, when I was informed that the Gen

On the twentieth Captain Balch writes to me: From information received, by deserters, it is believed that the force immediately in front of Jacksonville has been much reduced; but whether our force here is strong enough to make an advance is somewhat doubtful. When I returned here, on the twenty-second, from Ossabaw, I found an expedition preparing by General Birney, to ascend a certain stream and sever the railroad. My cooperation being asked, I directed Lieutenant-Commander Stone to take the McDonough, (Lieutenant-Commander Phythian,) and the Hale, Acting Master C. F. Mitchell, and render whatever aid might be needed. The Dai-Ching, Lieutenant-Commander Chaplin, was to assist as far as circumstances permitted. Two boat howitzers and a detachment of marines were added. The exp
700) men. I was obliged to use the naval boats, as well as the Houghton, to transport the troops. On Sunday, the twenty-second instant, I arrived at the landing opposite Pilatka. My movements had been slightly delayed by time expended at Picolata f General Gordon; the Columbine proceeding without delay to Volusia bar, which she reached at eleven P. M. of the twenty-second instant. I herewith transmit the report of Lieutenant-Commander Breese, of the Ottawa, detailing an account of the att, and much to the credit of the officers and crew of that vessel. The engagement took place on Sunday night, the twenty-second instant, and the Ottawa remained at anchor off Brown's Landing till the afternoon of the twenty-fourth, when the messenget. John's River, Florida. the Columbine arrived at Volusia bar at half past 11 P. M., on Sunday night, the twenty-second instant. Next morning a boat was sent to communicate with our troops at that post; found all safe. At noon Monday, twen
rly next morning, the twenty-first, in obedience to orders, I took a strong position on Missionary Ridge. Strong barricades against an infantry assault were at once made. During the day there was some light firing on my picket front, but nothing serious; the enemy was, however, evidently in considerable force in my front. At ten P. M., on the twenty-first, my command, in obedience to orders, left its position on Missionary Ridge, and withdrew to this place. Early Tuesday morning, the twenty-second, it occupied its present position in the line of defences, and has since been most constantly and actively engaged in strengthening them. To the officers and men of my command I return my thanks for their gallant bearing; soldierly conduct, and steadfast courage, exhibited both in the contests of Saturday, the nineteenth, and Sunday, the twentieth. Their conduct on both days deserves all praise, and I commend it to the consideration of the commanding General. There were undoubtedly
ht, with other causes of delay, prevented General Sherman's command from reaching in time the point at which he was to pass the river; consequently the movement intended to be made at daylight Saturday morning was postponed. On Sunday, the twenty-second, the orders of the preceding Friday were renewed. The failure of General Sherman's command to be Sunday night at the rendezvous assigned it caused a further postponement of the movement of the troops destined to cooperate immediately with it. To a just understanding of the subsequent movements of my division, it should be remarked that during the whole of Sunday, the twenty-second, much movement, some of it singular and mysterious, was observed in the rebel army. Officers in command of the grand guards and out-posts were instructed to observe the greatest vigilance Sunday night, to send out patrols frequently as near as possible to the enemy's picket lines, and to report promptly all information of interest. At twelve M.,

The remainder of the cspecially as evincing the discipline of the men. General Davidson again met the enemy on the twenty-second, on the Chattanooga and Harrison road. With a part of his brigade he attacked and routed thrst, I held the left of the road in General Pegram's attack upon Missionary Hill, and on the twenty-second, under orders from Major-General Cheatham, I proceeded on his right, and, crossing Missionarners. My entire prisoners amount to four commissioned officers and thirty privates. On the twenty-second I captured about seventy-five fine rifles for my unarmed men. My own loss foots up as folover four hundred prisoners, five stands of colors, and twelve hundred small arms. On the twenty-second, learning that a party of the enemy was on the mountain, near the gap at Rossville, I detach
e necessary armament actively pressed, and every effort made to annoy the enemy by such batteries as bear upon their working parties and lines — an attempt in which, I have reason to think, we have been to a considerable extent successful. The condition of the new batteries is known to the commanding General, and will be mentioned in the succeeding report. The garrisons of Batteries Wagner and Gregg have been relieved as regularly as possible with our means of transportation. On the twenty second Brigadier-General Taliaferro relieved Brigadier-General Hagood. On the twenty-sixth Brigadier-General Colquitt relieved Brigadier-General Taliaferro. Brigadier-General Colquitt was relieved on the twenty-eighth by Brigadier-General Clingman, and the latter officer was relieved on the first of August by Colonel L. M. Keitt. The fire from the land batteries of the enemy upon Batteries Wagner and Gregg has been annoying, especially upon our communication by steamer between Fort Sumter and
ry obstacle to the navigation of the Mississipp iRiver. General Bowen was also directed to look well to the approaches by the Bayou Pierre. He subsequently informed me that he had prepared for the defence on both sides of the Bayou. On the twenty-second, five heavy guns were mounted and ready for service; two of these were removed from the batteries at Vicksburg, and three intended for gunboats being built in the Trans-Mississippi Department, were detained by my order, it being impracticableed at a moment's notice. Major-General Stevenson was directed to place five thousand men in easy supporting distance of Warrenton, in addition to the brigade already there. Major Lockett, my Chief Engineer, was sent to Grand Gulf. On the twenty-second I addressed a communication to Lieutenant-General E. K. Smith, acknowledging the receipt of one from him of the fifteenth, asking my co-operation on the west side of the Mississippi, and stating my inability to do so because of the enemy's gu
wounded, and three missing. That of the enemy was greater in killed and wounded, and by capture about seven hundred prisoners, six pieces of artillery, and all their wagons, ambulances, and camp equipage. On the next morning the enemy advanced in force, infantry and cavalry, from London, and Colonels Morrison and Dibrell withdrew their commands to Sweetwater, there to await the arrival of the infantry. The enemy fell back to London that night. I reached the front on the morning of the twenty-second, moved the infantry to Mouse Creek that day, and soon afterwards to Sweet-water. On the evening of the twenty-third of October the enemy advanced in considerable force and engaged the cavalry for a short time, retiring at dusk. Their loss is not known. Ours is five wounded. The same movement was again made by them on the evening of the twenty-sixth of October. In this affair our loss was three wounded and five missing. The enemy are known to have had three commissioned officers an
