Notwithstanding this conversation, he commenced intrenching and fortifying his camp on the 16th inst. We must now turn to General Steele's movements.

Fortunately the war was over and the Government did not need the vessels, which were valuable ones. The following is a list of the losses experienced by the sinking of the vessels named above: Osage, 3 killed, 8 wounded; Rodolph, 4 killed, 11 wounded; Cincinnati's launch, 3 kille
