A correspondent on board the United States sloop of war Richmond gives the following account of the attack:-- U. S. Sloop Richmond, head of Passes, Mississippi River, Oct. 16, 1861. Dear mother: When I last wrote we were at the mouth of Pas à l'outre, with nothing to vary the monotony of our situation but an occasional visit by the rebel steamer Ivy. She is a small Mississippi tow-boat, with one or two guns on board. She is very fast, as was proven a few weeks ago, when the steamer Water Witch attempted to head her off. The Ivy was down the Southwest Pass, about thirty miles from us; the Water Witch started up Pas à l'outre; the shore people immediately telegr

Doc. 89. the attack on the Seminole. U. S. Steam sloop Seminole, off Fortress Monroe, Oct. 16, 1861. We arrived here this morning at seven o'clock, having left Washington yesterday morning. Nothing very remarkable occurred on the way down to Quantico Creek. At that point the steamer Pocahontas, which was some miles ahead of us, threw three or four shells into the bushes at Evansport, or Shipping Point, Va. The fire was not returned, and she proceeded on her way. As we neared the Point. at half-past 10 A.

At forty-five minutes past ten they opened on us, with rifled shot and shell, from three batteries--two on the bank and one about four hundred yards inland, at Evansport.

Three companies of the Third Wisconsin Volunteers, and a section of the Rhode Island battery, under Captain Tompkins, were ordered to report themselves to Major Gould for the purpose of assisting in and covering the necessary movements of the operation. On the 10th instant the Major called upon me to aid him with men and cannon, but as the necessity for them seemed to have vanished, the order was countermanded.
