and twenty horses and men, arrived at New York this morning. The Confederate Secretary of the Treasury, in his correspondence with the Tennessee delegation in Congress, stated the inability of the Confederate Government to settle the sums expended by Tennessee in behalf of the war. In the rebel Congress at Richmond, Va., Messrs. Thomas and Burnett, of Kentucky, appeared, qualified, and took their seats.--General Stuart's report of the battle of Dranesville was ordered to be printed.--Richmond Dispatch, Dec. 31. A cutter, under command of Acting-Master Alick Allen, and a gig, under command of Acting-Master Henry L. Sturges, were sent from the U. S. steamer Mount Vernon, to-night, to destroy a lightship used by the rebels off Wilmington, N. C. The expedition found the vessel deserted, though pierced with guns, and almost prepared for harbor defence. She was burnt to the water's edge by the National troops, who escaped the fire opened on them by a rebel fort.--(Doc. 243.)
sir: I have to report to you that, having observed that the rebels made use of a light-ship, which was formerly on the Frying-Pan Shoals, as a beacon for guiding vessels in and out of the harbor, and for the purpose of annoying us by hoisting lights at night, I determined to take advantage of a hazy night, with the wind off shore, to effect her destruction. I therefore sent the cutter and gig last night, at midnight, to destroy her, if possible. The cutter I placed in command of Acting-Master Alick Allen, with Mr. John P. Foote, coast-pilot, and a crew of five men, who were all well armed. This boat was also well supplied with combustible materials for the purpose of firing the vessel. The gig was under the command of Acting-Master Henry L. Sturges, and had a crew of six men, who were also well armed. In going in this boat took the lead, and while the cutter was alongside the light vessel she laid off on her oars, ready to support her in the event of an attack being made. From
