ding delay of the fleet. Farragut's first act upon reaching the Mississippi was to despatch his Chief of Staff, Capt. Henry H. Bell, with the gunboats Kennebec and Wissahickon up tile river on a reconnoissance. After returning from the neighborhood of the forts, Capt. Bell reported that the obstructions seemed formidable. Eight hulks were moored in line across the river, with heavy chains extending from one to the other. Rafts of logs were also used, and the passage between the forts was xtend from shore to shore below the forts. U. S. Flag-ship Hartford.

th. As to Commander R. Wainwright and the officers and crew of this ship, I cannot speak too highly of their steadiness and coolness, and the energy with which they performed their duties. This ship was conducted as coolly and quietly as at an ordinary drill at general quarters. There was no confusion of any kind throughout the whole action, and, as far as I could observe the other vessels, the same feeling actuated all the officers and crews engaged. The captain of the fleet, Commander H. H. Bell, was on the poop by my side, and, not being able, as I before stated, to do much in the management of the fleet, owing to the darkness and the smoke. gave his attention to looking up the batteries and pointing them out to the officers in charge of the guns, and assisting them with his judgment on all occasions. My secretary, Mr. E. C. Gabaudan, noted the time of passing events, and acted as my aid when required, which duty he performed with coolness and steadiness. I must not f

In January, 1863, another disaster befell Farragut's fleet. As soon as he heard of the capture of Galveston, he sent Captain Bell with the Brooklyn and six gun-boats to retake the place. They had not all arrived on the 11th of January, 1863, when evening of that day a sail, which afterwards proved to be the Confederate steamer Alabama, appeared in the offing and Captain Bell sent the Hatteras in pursuit of her. On approaching the stranger, Captain Blake of the Hatteras hailed her and asked f twenty miles south of Galveston light. This action offers a good moral, never send a boy on a man's errand. Had Commodore Bell sent two gun-boats instead of one, the No. 290 or Alabama, would probably have fallen into our hands, and her wild cave and Edw. Herrick; Acting-Masters' Mates, G. A.

factory nature. Maj.-Gen. Banks, who had relieved General Butler at New Orleans, wishing to commemorate his appointment by a signal victory over the enemy, proposed a combined expedition against Sabine Pass, which had been retaken and fortified by the enemy. The defences on shore, it was supposed, consisted only of two 32-pounders, while on the water the Confederates had two steamboats converted into rams. The Army organization consisted of 4,000 men under General Franklin; and Commodore H. H. Bell, who commanded the naval force at New Orleans in the absence of the Flag-officer, detailed Volunteer-Lieutenant Frederick Crocker to command the naval part of the expedition, consisting of the steamer Clifton, the steamer Sachem, Volunteer-Lieutenant Amos Johnson; steamer Arizona, Acting-Master H. Tibbetts, and steamer Granite City, Acting-Master C. W. Lamson. This force was considered quite sufficient for the purpose intended. It was concerted with General Franklin that the gun-b

ere to have attacked with the sailors and marines, come to time. It was only when the whole force of the enemy was concentrated at the sea-face that the order was given for the troops to advance, and Curtis' brigade at once sprung from the trenches and dashed forward in line, and in a few moments the Army occupied three or four traverses which protected them from the fire of the enemy, and there Curtis held on until Ames and Pennypacker could obtain a secure footing in the fort with him. Bell's brigade was brought up and the fort was occupied by the troops. It must be remembered that while this assault was going on behind traverses, the New Ironsides, with her 11-inch guns, and three Monitors, were firing through the traverses in front of the Federal soldiers, as the enemy would assemble to meet their approaches, and the Confederates were swept away by the Navy shells. At this time General Terry requested the Admiral to reinforce the troops on the outer line by the seamen a
