as injured on board.
Officers and men all did their duty; but I especially recommend Acting-Ensign John B. Trott, who was stationed at the wheel steering the ship himself, for the admirable manner in which he performed his duty.
Also Acting-Master Robert B. Ely, for the manner in which he worked his guns.
Both of these gentlemen, I think, are worthy of being advanced a grade in the service.
One of the 15-inch carriages is temporarily disabled by the breaking of some bolts.

*Commander, Tunis A. M. Craven; *Lieutenant, J. W. Kelly; Acting Master, C. F. Langley;
to state our impressions of his character, for we knew him well.
His career is certainly one of the most remarkable of the civil war; and if he had served the United States while he remained in its Navy as faithfully as he did the Confederacy, his resignation would have been accepted with great regret.
