Capture of the Confederate steamer Florida, by the U. S. Steamer Wachusett. Report of Lieutenant T. K. Porter. [The following report we copy from Captain Bulloch's Secret Service of the Confederate States in Europe where it is published for the first time. The gallant and accomplished officer who commanded the Florida at the time, and who wrote the report was Lieutenant Thomas K. Porter, who commanded Porter's Battery at Fort Donelson with such skill and courage, who was a brother of the soldier-statesman, ex-Governor James D. Porter, of Tennessee, and whose death was deeply lamented by a wide circle of friends and admirers.] To Lieutenant-Commander C. M. Morris, Confederate States Navy. Liverpool, February 20th, 1865. Sir,—In obedience to orders I submit the following report of the capture of the Confederate States steamer Florida at Bahia, Brazil, on the 7th of October, 1864, by the United States steamer Wachusett, the treatment of the officers and crew while priso

her officers and is perhaps the best and most reliable ironclad in the service. If you were not on more important duty, I am inclined to believe that you would have command of her. Captain Matthew Maury writes to me, under date of January 21st, that we have nothing to look for from England that money can't buy. His letter is rather gloomy in its tone. Charley Morris has the Florida, Barney being sick. William L. Maury had asked to be relieved from the Georgia on the score of ill health. Bulloch is still doing good service in England and France. Bob Carter lately brought the navy steamer Coquette into Wilmington with a cargo composed of two fine marine engines, etc. He goes out in her again to Bermuda. Maffit commands the blockade (runner) Florrie, but I see by a late Northern paper that he had to put into Halifax, N. S., for repairs. Murdaugh at last accounts was in Paris. Speaking of Halifax reminds me of our late expedition, which, I suppose you have heard, failed through

the commerce to its own advantage. He gave as one reason for his counsel information that much cotton escaped the blockade direct for the port of New York. Two splendid iron ships of war for the Confederacy were completed on the Clyde by Captain Bulloch. The other brother, Captain Bulloch (both uncles of President Roosevelt) arrived in London to take command of one, for work against the enemy, and Commodore Matthew F. Maury arrived to take command of the other. Ambassador Charles Francis Captain Bulloch (both uncles of President Roosevelt) arrived in London to take command of one, for work against the enemy, and Commodore Matthew F. Maury arrived to take command of the other. Ambassador Charles Francis Adams discovered the approaching readiness of the ships to put to sea. The American minister again played his old game of bluff successfully. He at once called on Earl Russell, her Majesty's Secretary for Foreign Affairs, and demanded the sailing of the ships should be promptly forbidden. The banker, George Peabody, agreed to put up the $5,000,000 gold that Russell required, to indemnify his government, and the ships were thrown out of the Confederate possession at once, before leaving their

ndering much service to the country. Soon after he was ordered to join Commodore Barron and Capt. Bulloch in England, who were superintending the building of several ships, one of which he was to command. Capt. Bulloch, in a letter to Commodore Barron, dated Liverpool, August 31, 1864, says: I feel now a reasonable certainty of getting a ship very shortly and the commander should be placed of the opposing fleet. He missed the command of the Shenandoah, the vessel referred to in Capt. Bulloch's letter, owing to his absence from England at the time of her completion, and it was feareds the only representative of a scheme whose prospects were so inviting and so brilliant. Capt. Bulloch again wanted Capt. Murdaugh detailed to command one of three vessels to make an attack on thew England ports. In a letter to the Secretary of the Navy from London, January 10, 1865, Capt. Bulloch says: I have long thought that a severe blow might be struck at New Bedford, Salem, Po

et, so they took the boat up the creek about a half mile, and, discovering the enemy right abreast of them, pulled the ring out of the boat and made through the marsh for the woods. During the exchange of shots between the enemy and our steamers, they returned to the beach to witness the result. Two of the crew, alluded to above, strayed from the rest, and were heard to hail one of the Federal steamers and to give other signals to come ashore; the rest having no weapons, save one pistol, then repaired to Doyal's place on the southern end of the Island, where they made a fire and remained till morning. On Tuesday, about 2 o'clock, they went to the middle settlement, where, finding an old batten, two of the party were sent to Ossiltouis in search of a larger boat. They returned next morning at 8 o'clock, and about 11 o'clock, Major Anderson and Capt. Bulloch, who had gone in search of them with provisions came up with and brought them safely to Franklin's landing at Skidaway.
