sualties to report. Ammunition expended, seventeen solid shot, rifle one hundred-pounder, and one hundred and seventy pounds common powder. Very respectfully, your obedient servant, G. W. Barrett, Acting Ensign, commanding. Captain Melancton Smith, Senior Naval Officer, Sounds of N. C. Additional reports of Lieut.-Com. Roe. United States steamer Sassacus, James River, June 24, 1864. Sir: I respectfully request that the enclosed communication may be appended to my report of May sixth, on the engagement with the iron-clad Albemarle. This paper is a duplicate of one sent to Captain Smith, at the time of its date, and I furnish it under the apprehension that the original may not have reached you. I am, Sir, very respectfully, Your obedient servant, F. A. Roe, Lieutenant-Commander. Admiral S. P. Lee, Com'ding N. A. B. Squadron, James River, Va. United States steamer Sassacus, Albemarle Sound, N. C., May 7, 1864. Sir: My attention being called by you to that p
seventy or eighty miles. Tuesday, May 5th.--Rested, having sent out scouting parties. Heard by telegram from Richmond that the enemy were everywhere. Wednesday, May 6th.--Having received information that the enemy were recrossing the railroad, moved down upon his left flank; came upon his rear at North Anna River; took somed our position, by the use of bayonets and fingers, and remained subjected on several occasions to the shells and canister of the enemy, until Wednesday evening, May sixth, when ordered to return to camp. On Wednesday morning, the enemy having retired, skirmishers were pressed forward to the river, capturing many prisoners. Whend well-conducted march, but little public or private property, except such as was necessary for hospital purposes, being left behind. On the evening of Wednesday, May sixth, my column was again in motion, and camped that night in their old quarters near Grace Church, having been absent eight days, participating in the achievem
onel Bowers, Adjutant-General, to ascertain if these had been received, and he answered, they were received, the latter during General Grant's absence. Orders have been sent you (me) to report here, when you can see the General. On May third, I received by telegraph an extract from General Orders No. 78, of May first, assigning me to the command of the Department of the Mississippi I at once proceeded to Washington, and, after a personal interview with General Grant, received, on the sixth of May, an answer to my communications of the ninth and twenty-second April, authorizing my publishing them, and stating the reasons for not granting me the investigation sought. A copy of this letter is herewith sent. Having thus exhausted my means of getting at the cause of my being relieved by General Sheridan, I present the following brief account of the operations on the first of April: The operations of the enemy on the thirty-first of March made it necessary for me to send a porti
e forces to Vicksburg as rapidly as possible. On the morning of the third, two of the enemy's barges, loaded with hospital and commissary stores, were destroyed in attempting to pass the batteries at Vicksburg. On the fifth, I telegraphed General Johnston that: Six thousand cavalry should be used to keep my communications open, and that the enemy advancing on me was double what I could bring into the field. To the Honorable Secretary of War I sent the following telegram, under date of May sixth: General Beauregard sends but two brigades, perhaps not five thousand men. This is a very insufficient number. The stake is a great one. I can see nothing so important. On the seventh the President notified me that all the assistance in his power to send should be forwarded, and that it was deemed necessary to hold Port Hudson as a means of keeping up our communications with the Trans-Mississippi Department. Major-General Gardner, who, with Brigadier-General Maxcey and five thousan
