While General Gillmore was perfecting his plans, the vessels of the fleet were not idle. A smart affair came off in the Stono River, in which the Pawnee (Commander Balch), Marblehead (Lieutenant-Commander Scott), and the Huron were engaged. The Pawnee and Marblehead were at anchor near Fort Grimball, when they were hotly attact. There were but four persons wounded in this affair, and it is remarkable that a number were not killed, considering the precision of the enemy's fire. Commander Balch, the senior officer on the Stono River, speaks in the handsomest terms of the conduct of Lieutenant-Commander Bacon for his unremitting attention to duties inhe first to plant the American flag on Morris Island, Brigadier-General Strong landing with him.

Acting-Volunteer-Lieutenant Devens mentions, in his report of the Dare affair, that, while in the breakers, his boat capsized, and the crew were washed on shore and fell into the hands of the enemy. Acting Master J. W. Balch, seeing his commanding officer struggling in the water, swam ashore, with two men, and brought Lieutenant Devens off on his back, and placed him in the Montgomery's launch. Twenty-five officers and men on this occasion, after having a eir ground so faithfully, in presence of this apparently formidable iron-clad, were the Tuscarora, Commander W. A. Parker; Britannia, Acting-Volunteer-Lieutenant S. Huse; Mount Vernon, Acting-Volunteer-Lieutenant James Trathen; Houquah, Acting-Master J. W. Balch, and Nansemond, Acting-Ensign J. H. Porter. From subsequent developments, it appears that the rams Raleigh and North Carolina were constructed at Wilmington under the direction of Commodore W. F. Lynch, but were hardly considered fit t
