I have again the pleasant duty of bearing testimony to the gallant conduct of the officers and crew of this vessel, and the spirit and zeal exhibited in the performance of their duties on this occasion.

Mr. John McHugh, our pilot, behaved in a remarkably cool and selfpossessed manner, and gave me great assistance. Great credit is due Lieutenant A. P. Cooke for the efficient manner in which the guns were worked, and for the good training of the ship's company. Accompanying this report I send Assistant-Surgeon L. M. Lyon's report of casualties.

On this, Admiral Porter offered to go up himself with the force he had, and started accordingly on the 4th with the above-named vessels, arriving at Fort De Russy on the 5th. On the way up he met the two gun-boats returning, their commanding officer (Cooke) informing Admiral Porter that his wheel had been disabled by a shell from Fort De Russy; the other vessel w
