ts, was all folly. Suppose the rebels had invented the most destructive methods, which lively imaginations had invested with supernatural power, there was no reason why 47 heavy guns and 700 men should run away from such goblins. A badly-constructed ram ran her snout into the Richmond and ripped off three pieces of her planking; there were no firerafts, and Hollins' squadron was all a sham. His gunboats were nothing more than frail river craft with small rifled guns — like those which Bailey's division sent to the bottom after a fifteen minutes engagement at the battle of Forts Jackson and St. Philip. Put this matter in any light you may, it is the most ridiculous affair that ever took place in the American Navy. There is no instance during the war like it. To think that we should have to write of such a retreat is mortifying, but it stands on record, described in language that almost claims merit for the flight of the Richmond and her consorts, chased by a ram that was goin

Chapter 19: battle of the forts and capture of New Orleans. Interesting reports of Flag-officer Farragut; captains Bailey, Bell, Morris, Craven; commanders Wainwright, Lee, Smith, Boggs, De camp, Alden, Nichols, Caldwell, Porter, Mitchell, and others. official letters of Gideon Welles, Mayor Monroe, and the city council of New Orleans, etc. It is desirable in some respects to make this a book of reference, especially in regard to official letters, which seldom or ever are seen bon-clads with iron beaks, and the iron hearts won. On the 29th the Cayuga, Lieut.-Com. Harrison, was selected to bring me home a bearer of despatches to the government. I have the honor to be, very respectfully, your obedient servant, Theodorus Bailey, Captain. Hon. Gideon Welles, Secretary of the Navy.

Farragut received a vote of thanks, but Bailey was left out except on the general vote which pondence which took place between Farragut and Bailey became part of the records of the Navy Departmive.

gainst the Union, its leading men considered that it should be the last to lay them down. Their gallantry was unquestionable, but their policy, in a military point of view, was open to criticism, and the city had finally to surrender on the approach of General Sherman's indefatigable soldiers, who did not always extend to conquered cities that consideration they would have received from the Navy. The Eastern Gulf squadron had no important military operations to co-operate with, Acting-Rear-Admiral Bailey being engaged in blockading the entire east and west coasts of Florida, capturing many prizes, annihilating the illicit traffic in that quarter, and preventing all supplies from reaching the Confederate armies by way of the Florida coast. The duties of Rear-Admiral Farragut, in command of the West Gulf squadron, had been extremely harassing, but they gave that gallant officer an opportunity to exhibit the highest qualities as commander-inchief.
