Cummins, notorious sheriff, making a total of seventy-seven now in custody; also five horses, two mules, twenty-six guns, two pistols, one keg powder, half a bushel bullets, as well as peaceful possession of the town. All of which is respectfully submitted. I have the honor to be, very respectfully, your ob't serv't, Clark Wright, Major Commanding Frem
e of her largest gun is only twenty hundred yards at high elevation, and she could not hit any thing at a greater distance than fifteen hundred yards, and could not carry her ports out with a heavy sea on. I trust that, with the above description, (which may be relied on,) merchant ships may be able to avoid her. My own opinion is that the Sumter will finally turn pirate against all commerce. She has a crew composed of all nations, the greater portion being Portuguese, Spaniards, and English. The discipline is severe, and though it might be tolerated on board a regular ship of war, it will not be borne by the pirates on board the Sumter, who are already getting discontented, and are only kept in good humor by the anticipation of getting eight hundred dollars each for the prizes they have already captured. When they hind that all their prizes have been restored to the owners thereof, bitter will be the disappointment and curses in consequence. Capt. Semmes is not yet aware

Johnston had been detained the appointed time, and the work of General Patterson's column had been done. On the 18th, at half-past 1 in the morning, he telegraphed General Scott the condition of the enemy's force and of his own, referring to his letter of the 16th for full information, and closed the despatch by asking, Shall I attack? This was plain English, and could not be misunderstood, but he received no reply. He expected to be attacked where he was, and if Manassas was not to be attacked on that day, as stated in General Scott's despatch of the day previous, he ought to have been ordered down forthwith to join in the battle, and the attack delayed until he came. He could have been there on the day the battle was fought, and his assistance might have produced a different result. On the 20th he heard that Johnston had marched with thi
were I disposed to be regardless of the neutrality of the port. I did not anchor, but cruised around the harbor within half gunshot of her during the night. In the morning a French man-of-war arrived from Port Royal, the seat of government, only twelve miles distant. The Sumter had been there for the last two days. The government, it is true, had refused to give her any of its coals, but had allowed her to come around to St. Pierre, where she readily obtained them from some merchants, (English, I believe.) She evidently had been received with courtesy at the seat of government, and this farce of the non-recognition of the Confederate flag is played out of both France and England in the most flagrant manner. I now addressed a letter to the Governor, assuming him to be ignorant of the character of the Sumter, a copy of which I enclose. I also enclose a translation of his reply. The Department will observe that from the generous disposition of the Governor, the Sumter has th
