t speak in too high terms of the conduct of officers and men under my command: all behaved well, exhibiting coolness and courage. I would mention the following officers as having especially attracted my attention by their good conduct, viz.: Major Del. Kemper, who had his right arm shattered by a minie ball; Lieutenant and Adjutant W. H. Kemper; Captains J. S. Taylor, Jordan, Parker, and Eubank; Lieutenant Elliot, commanding Rhett's battery; Lieutenants Taylor, Gilbert, Brown, Ficklin, and Oakum, the latter of Grimes's battery, with two Parrotts attached. The casualties are as follows: Major Del. Kemper, wounded in right arm, severely. Parker's battery — Wounded: Sergeant James Jones, in arm and side, slight; Private David E. Richardson, in thigh, slight. Rhett's battery — Wounded: Privates M. P. Costello, in leg, slight, and G. T. Jones, in leg, slight; Sergeant Marshall, in leg, slight. Total wounded, six. Respectfully submitted. S. D. Lee, Colonel Artillery,
rson. The enemy was protected by the fire of his gunboats in Stono and Little Folly Rivers. Brigadier--General Hagood succeeded in driving the enemy, about two thousand in number, from James Island, and inflicting upon him a serious loss in killed and wounded, capturing fourteen negroes belonging to the Fifty-fourth Massachusetts regiment. Not the least important of these operations was the engagement with the sloop of war Pawnee, by two sections of Napoleon guns, under command of Lieutenant-Colonel Del. Kemper, in which the steamer was injured and forced to retire. General Hagood's loss was three killed, twelve wounded, and three missing. The enemy withdrew entirely from James Island, to Battery Island, when General Hagood advanced his pickets, and the ground has been held to the present date, twenty-second July. At Battery Wagner and on Morris Island, our troops continued their work of repair, subject to a continued shelling from gunboats and monitors at long range. On the

details upon extensive earth-works, at many and various points. But they were not left to non-combatant work alone. They had two memorable opportunities of showing their alacrity and bravery in the fields of battle. The two war steamers, Marble Head and Pawnee, were too curious in running up the Stono to peer at a Quaker battery, which had been placed above the mouth of the Abbepoola, to deter the enemy, and Colonel Page commanding, with Major Jenkins of the South Carolina troops, and Colonel Del. Kemper of the artillery, were ordered to drive them off. This they did with gallantry, riddling the Marble Head, but the Pawnee got a cross fire on our batteries, and forced Page to fall back, but he fully effected the purpose of the expedition, and won my most hearty thanks. He was one of the coolest men I ever saw under fire. On his dull sorrel horse, he rode about the field under showers of shot and shell, without turning his head, or giving it a twitch even at the sound too near o
