e, Bowling Green, Kentucky, November 30th, 1861. Colonel — The muskets, I am informed, have reached Nashville.

se from his son-in-law Doctor Garnett of Washington, to the effect that a Massachusetts regiment, one thousand strong, had been ordered to Harper's Ferry. Without this reinforcement we knew the guard there consisted of only forty-five men, who could be captured or driven away, perhaps without firing a shot, if we could reach the place secretly. The Ashbys, Funsten, Harman, and I remained up the entire night. The superintendent and commandant of the Virginia Armory at Richmond, Captain Charles Dimmock, a Northern man by birth and a West Point graduate, was in full sympathy with us, and that night filled our requisitions for ammunition and moved it to the railway station before sunrise. He also granted one hundred stand of arms for the Martinsburg Light Infantry, a new company just formed. All these I receipted for and saw placed on the train. Just before we moved out of the depot, Alfred Barbour made an unguarded remark in the car, which was overheard by a Northern traveler,
designed by me. The barges are from the navy-yard to Flag-Officer Lynch, and the location selected by him. Upon his application I had the embankment erected; it was a work of great labor, and the effect of working in the mud and water producing so much sickness among the negroes, that I was compelled to discharge a large number as soon as the work was finished. I have always considered obstructions of the channel as indispensable to the defence of this post. It was so considered by Captain Dimmock, and Corn. Hunter ordered piles to be cut, and contemplated procuring a pile-driver from the navvyard, before Com. Lynch took command of the fleet. In my first communication to the office at Norfolk, and in several subsequent ones, I made application for a steam pile-driver, and received the reply, that it could not be procured. I urged the importance of obstructions to Col. Wright, commandant of the post, and he agreed with me, but said, he had no authority to obstruct the channel
