On the 7th of November, 1861, an expedition was fitted out and placed under the command of Lieutenant James E. Jouett, with Lieutenant John J. Mitchell, Gunner William Carter and Master's Mate Chas. W. Adams in the first and second launches, each carrying a howitzer and a picked crew of men. At 11:40 P. M. the two boats enterhom Jouett had depended to take the vessel out was shot down. Lieutenant Jouett himself was severely wounded by a boarding pike in the hands of an enemy; Mr. William Carter, gunner, was wounded, one man killed of the boat's crew and six wounded, one of whom afterwards died.

Monticello's guns, and when our flag was hoisted on the ramparts a fire was again opened upon the fort and our own troops shelled out of it, notwithstanding two of our flags were raised and floating from the ramparts. Quite a number of our troops had entered the fort, and were there when the shells began bursting around them, to their great surprise. None of our men were killed by it, but a private was struck on the hand with a portion of a shell, which burst in the fort, and covered Lieut. Carter, of the Marine Corps, and Dr. King, of the United States Navy, with dirt. The latter and Dr. Jones, of the United States Navy, were the only medical officers with the troops on shore. In mistake the fire was thus kept up on our forces, until they were compelled to retreat and leave there the stores, in the Quartermaster's Department, which they had found, and which they now so much needed; for they had become exhausted in their exertions to land the forces, and had then marched to the
The Eleventh lost eight men in killed and missing, one severely wounded, and ten slightly injured. Robert Bachelor, of Yellow Springs, received two mortal wounds while holding his position against overwhelming odds. Before going into action he said that he had heard so much of the cruelties practised by the enemy upon their prisoners, that he was determined he would never surrender. There were many instances of personal bravery displayed by our men. One deserves prominent record. Sergeant Carter, of Tippecanoe, Ohio, was upon the post first attacked by the enemy. The advance guard of the Second Virginia, consisting of twelve men, came suddenly upon him and his three companions. The bright moonlight revealed the flashing bayonets of the advancing regiment. He was surrounded and separated from his reserve. With great presence of mind he stepped out and challenged, Halt! Who goes there? The advance guard, supposing they had come upon a scouting party of their own men, answer

n the order to prepare to move was issued to the troops, it was received with exultation. The Tennesseeans were especially delighted, and prepared with alacrity to return to their fire-sides. It had been currently reported that letters had been received by prominent Tennesseeans, from friends at Louisville and Washington, assuring them that the Cumberland Gap expedition would soon be pushed to an issue. This order, therefore, confirmed the report; and I am told that Hon. Andy Johnson, General Carter, Colonel Byrd, Colonel Spears, and others, were elated at the prospect of an immediate fruition of their hopes. They did not seem to comprehend that the order concerning the sick implied a retrograde movement. But when informed of the fact, they were overwhelmed with sorrow and indignation. Mr. Johnson turned from his informant, and entered his hotel without one word, in utter despair. The information was withheld from the troops until they were moving, when the fact flashed upon t

piked, and before the boats regained the ship the schooner was entirely destroyed. A few stand of arms were captured, also thirteen prisoners (three of them wounded) and her colors. She was undoubtedly fitted out for a privateer, and intended to escape when a favorable opportunity offered. The officers engaged deserve great credit for their coolness and courage. Henry Garcia, seaman, was killed, and John L. Emerson, coxswain, has since died of his wounds. Lieutenant Jouett and Wm. Carter, gunner, are wounded; also, five men, Edward Conway, gunner's mate; Geo. Bell, coxswain; Hugh McGregor, ordinary seaman Francis Brown, seaman, and Charles Hawkins, seaman. They are all doing well, and will soon be on duty. This is an important capture, as the schooner was a large one, with accommodations for thirty persons.
