The action was immediately begun by sending Major Duncan with his regular cavalry across the river, who were dismounted and skirmished on foot.

He made a feint of attack on Albuquerque by sending in Paddy Graydon's company, supported by a few regular cavalry under Major Duncan. The Confederates were ready to receive them, and fired a few rounds, when Canby retired and passed through Carnuel Cañon to the little adobe village of San A

below Fort Craig, and out of reach of its guns, for the purpose of drawing Canby out. In this he was successful. Canby at once threw a force across the river, These consisted of the Fifth, Seventh, and Tenth Regular Infantry, under Captains Selden and Wingate, and the volunteer regiments of Colonels Carson and Pine. to occupy a position on an eminence commanding the fort, which it was thought Sibley might attempt to gain. In the afternoon of the following day, some cavalry, under Captain Duncan, and a battery were sent across, and drew a heavy cannonade from the Texans. The infantry were nearly all thrown into confusion, excepting Colonel Kit Carson's regiment. The panic was so great that Canby ordered a return of all the forces to the fort. That night the exhausted mules of the Texans became unmanageable, on account of thirst, and scampered in every direction. The National scouts captured a large number of these, and also wagons, by which Sibley was greatly crippled in the

The passage was then filled up and a guard placed over the entrance to keep
or lent for this service, and armed and manned as well as might be — with a number of old sailing craft fitted up as fireships, and very dangerous to wooden vessels attacking from below, by reason of the uniform strength of the current. Gen. J. K. Duncan, who had been appointed by Lovell to the command of the coast defenses, and had thereupon repaired March 27. to Fort Jackson, had been working the garrisons of both forts night and day, covering their main magazines with sand-bags; which the grand attempt, of which the Rebel officers somehow had an intimation ; so that, throughout the preceding day, the forts were silently preparing for the eventful hour at hand, while our bombardment was little more than a formality. Meantime, Duncan reported from Fort Jackson that he had suffered very little, though 25,000 13-inch shells had been fired at him, whereof 1,000 had fallen within the fort. (We had actually fired 5,000 only.) God is certainly protecting us, was his assurance.
McAllister was ours. Her garrison of 200 surrendered; having 40 or 50 killed and wounded to our 90. Among the spoils were 22 guns and much ammunition. Sherman watched till he saw our colors hoisted over the fort, and heard the cheers of the victors as they fired their pieces into the air; when, taking a boat, he went with Howard down to the fort and congratulated Hazen; rowing thence down the Ogeechee till he met the National tug Dandelion, Lt.-Com'r Williamson; who informed him that Capt. Duncan, whom Howard had sent down the Ogeechee in a canoe, to run by the fort and communicate with Foster and Dahlgren, had safely reached them several days before, and that they might be expected here directly. Foster arrived in the Nemaha during that night; and Sherman met Dahlgren on board the Harvest Moon next day; sending by him to Hilton Head for heavy guns wherewith to bombard the city — those which he had brought through Georgia in his Winter march being inadequate.

g all extraordinary invention by way of destructive experiment-nevertheless we think we are safe in averring that if the floating battery now moored at our levee be only half as good as Capt. James O'Hara and his command, Company 2, Pelican Guards, in the fighting line, Commander Hollins will have no reason to be ashamed of its performance. Speaking of naval operations reminds us of the disappearance from that arm of Capt. Higgins, and his translation to some other service, where his versatile talents are no doubt in active requisition. He is the kind of blue jacket we want about this river — the sailor man who, in conjunction with the ever-ready Colonel J. K. Duncan, will give the Yankee boys a belly full of hard knocks should they try the Port Royal operations about the mouth of Old Muddy. The Pelican lads are, too, the kind of stuff such leaders as their own captain and those we have named will be worthy and proud of. Hurrah for the floating battery!--N. O. True Delta, Nov. 17.
