Doc. 34. attack on Santa Rosa Island. October 9, 1861. Colonel Brown's report. Headquarters, Department of Florida, Fort Pickens, October 11, 1861. Colodred from personal observation. I am, Colonel, very respectfully, yours, Harvey Brown, Colonel Commanding. Col. E. D. Townsend, Asst. Adj.-Gen. P. S.--I have given by three contrabands who were sent to the North in the McClellan, by Colonel Brown, from Fort Pickens. They are Peter Dyson, an intelligent black man, about on fire. As soon as a messenger reached the fort, (previous to the fire,) Colonel Brown ordered out thirty regulars, under Major Vogdes and Lieutenants Langley andean time Lieutenant Langley had galloped back to the fort and obtained from Colonel Brown a reinforcement of two companies of regulars, which marched in double-quick the navy-yard. Two false alarms had been given on the previous night, or, Colonel Brown was heard to say, he would, instead of thirty men, have ordered out a suffi

out the water, raise and float it further down to a position opposite Fort McRea, where the channel is very narrow, and where, if sunk, it would effectually bar the passage inward of any vessel of size. On the night of the 31st of August, Colonel Brown got an inkling of the design on foot, from the unusual stir at the Navy Yard, the frequent passage of boats to and from the shore, conveying, what afterward proved to be fuel for the furnaces, to the dock, &c. His plans to defeat the accomplit. Shipley, he gave him orders to hold himself in readiness with a crew of picked men, to man a boat the following night, cautiously to approach the dry dock, land upon and set fire to it, then retreat as speedily as possible for the fort. Colonel Brown, in the mean time, made every preparation for a general engagement. He could not believe that the enemy would allow a handful of men to approach so near his batteries, burn the dock, and find their way unmolested back to the fort, and he had
Capt. O. P. Evans on the west side of the mountain, on the right side of the road. Capt. Herman Evans, commanding Company H, on the east side of the mountain, on the left of the road. Each of these companies moved with despatch, yet such was the knowledge of the rebels of the by-paths in the mountains, and belonging to the F. F. V.'s , and having been drilled at running all summer, that but two were captured. Among interesting objects captured was a genuine secession flag, captured by Lieut. Brown. The perception of Col. Piatt in planning the battle, and his coolness during its execution, show him to be worthy of the high and responsible position to which he has been called. Lieut.-Col. Toland, from the part he executed during the entire engagement, demonstrated fully that he has courage to fight and ability to command. During the engagement the peculiar whistling of Minie balls was heard at that part of the column where Cols. Piatt and Toland were commanding. There were found
tteras Inlet, October 7. On the morning of the 4th inst., about daylight, the lookouts of Colonel Brown's encampment, consisting of about eight hundred men of the Twentieth Indiana regiment, locat, and there make a stand. The steamers landed about fifteen hundred men three miles above Colonel Brown, and then came on down, throwing shells into the tents, destroying them, also a house which off all retreat, and, having them between their two forces, make sure, no doubt, of bagging Colonel Brown and his men at their leisure. But they were not quick enough; Colonel B. hastily destroyed ght broke, the troops on shore and the sailors were within speaking distance of each other. Colonel Brown's troops had not eaten any thing since the previous morning — which fact being made known tot of an escaped Indianian. The following narrative is given by private Haver, Company H, of Col. Brown's regiment, who was captured by the rebels, but finally escaped: He says that privates Benn
encamped at Wilson's Mill, on Bryant's Fork of the White River, and when their position became known, the Home Guards made a spirited attack upon their camp, taking them completely by surprise. Thirty-three of the former advanced along a bluff, and when within three hundred yards of the rebels, who were at breakfast, fired several rounds, killing fifteen and wounding twenty. The rebels broke and fled. The secession gangs had, for some time previous, been guilty of committing several outrages. Jesse Jeems, a Union man, was hung, and his body was cut down by the women and decently buried by them. A man named Brown was hung; another old man was reported to be horribly mutilated and left in the woods. Old man Russell, who came along with the party, had been taken prisoner by the secessionists, who swore him to meet them on Saturday at Job Teherbaugh's. Old man Russell, in disregard of an oath exacted under compulsion, preferred to pay a visit to Uncle Sam instead of Teherbaugh's.
Georgia, has lately issued a proclamation on this subject, and public meetings have been held in Macon, Savannah, and elsewhere, to inaugurate some movement to suppress the unjust and unpatriotic speculations in the prime necessaries of life — the greatest wants of the soldiers who are now fighting for the liberty which these men so abuse, and the wants of their poor families, who have already suffered much, and will suffer more unless a stop is put to it by the strong arm of the law. Governor Brown, of Georgia, in his late Message, has also recommended the Legislature to take this matter in hand, to regulate so as to cure the evil and do justice to all. The Governors of Mississippi and Louisiana have also. These are some of the indications of public opinion. We will now clearly define our own position on this subject. In ordinary times every man should be allowed to buy and sell any article of merchandise, or any farm productions, for just such prices as he can or will. But t
Lyle were arrested by order of the provost marshal, Capt. Warner, on a suspicion of disloyalty. They were given quarters at the Johnson House. A lady named Mrs. Brown, accompanied by a lieutenant of the Federal army, went on board the boat at Cape Girardeau. She seemed to be on terms of intimacy with Mr. White. His arrest md was in a rebel camp. She was overheard to say that she was travelling around to see what she could. A search of the rooms and passengers was instituted, and Mrs. Brown was seen to burn several letters. When asked why she did so, she said they were kind o‘ love letters, from St. Louis, etc. This was corroborated by the young ly she did so, she said they were kind o‘ love letters, from St. Louis, etc. This was corroborated by the young lieutenant who accompanied her on board. The search was conducted by the provost marshal, and we understand he arrested Mrs. Brown, as well as the captain and clerk of the boat, and probably the lieutenant and others

relative to Capt. Williams and his party, and learned that they were safe, though prisoners, and on their way to Martinsburg. Captain Williams was much beloved by the entire regiment, and his vacancy will be hard to fill, and all that were with him were picked men. That they fought hard for their freedom was plainly seen and sensibly felt, as they killed five and wounded quite a number during their capture. There is much credit due Companies E and K for the coolness and decision shown during the time, and every shot fired was expected to tell, and for that reason the enemy fell back, as the officers thought best to leave the Dam rather than lose their men. While they were in consultation one man was struck in the right eye and instantly killed, at a distance of seven hundred yards. During the evening a few cavalry made their appearance at the Lock, when Orderly Brown, of Company K, fired and killed one instantly, and the rest took a hasty departure and have not been seen since.
