urse of every shot, both from the guns of the Hartford and from the Confederate fleet. Another signal message from the Brooklyn told of the sinking of the Tecumseh, a fact known already, and another order to go on was given and was not obeyed. Soon after the fight began, Admiral Farragut, finding that the low-hanging smoke from the guns interfered with his view from the deck, went up the rigging of the mainmast as far as the futtock-shrouds, immediately below the maintop. The pilot, Martin Freeman, was in the top directly overhead, and the fleet-captain was on the deck below. Seeing the admiral in this exposed position, where, if wounded, he would be killed by falling to the deck, Fleet-Captain Drayton ordered Knowles, the signal-quartermaster, to fasten a rope around him so that he would be prevented from falling. [See p. 407.] Finding that the Brooklyn failed to obey his orders, the admiral hurriedly inquired of the pilot if there was sufficient depth of water for the Hartf

hours after. Mr. Heginbotham was a young married man, and has left a widow and one child, whom I commend to the kindness of the Department. Lieutenant A. R. Yates, of the Augusta, acted as an additional aid to me on board the Hartford, and was very efficient in the transmission of orders. I have given him the command temporarily of the captured steamer Selma. The last of my staff, and to whom I would call the attention of the Department, is not the least in importance. I mean Pilot Martin Freeman. He has been my great reliance in all difficulties in his line of duty. During the action, he was in the main-top, piloting the ships into the bay. He was cool and brave throughout, never losing his self-possession. This man was captured early in the war in a fine fishing-smack which he owned, and though he protested that he had no interest in the war, and only asked for the privilege of fishing for the fleet, yet his services were too valuable to the captors as a pilot not to be s
ed. The rebels lost five killed, seven wounded, and some that could not be counted by the Lieutenant. Also, seven horses were killed. Among the mortally wounded is Colonel Tucker, alias Bent Woods, the notorious guerrilla and stage-robber. Not one of our boys was wounded in any way, but they were stripped of every thing. Lieutenant Troyford had three hundred dollars in greenbacks, which he managed to hide and keep. The boys were paroled, and returned, and are now safely in camp. It appears that the forces of Colonel Love and Colonel Freeman contemplated an attack on Waynesville on Sunday last, but hesitated, and put it off till the next morning; then, hearing of the return of Major Fischer from pursuing Joe Shelby, beat a hasty retreat and came upon the little squad of company H, gobbled them, but found a bitter pill. The boys say, that if it had been a decent house, the rebs would never have got them out of it. I remain, very respectfully, yours, R. B. Kelley, Sergeant.
Doc. 79.-attack on Freeman's band. Lieutenant-Colonel Stephens's report. headquarters detachment Eleventh cavalry, Missouri volunteers, Batesville, Arkansas, February 10, 1864. Captain: I have the honor to report that, in obedience to a special order issued from the Headquarters District of East-Arkansas, dated Febrcavalry, and Captain T. J. Majors and forty men, of the First Nebraska cavalry, together with eight men of the Fourth Arkansas infantry, to attack the camp of Colonel Freeman, then supposed to be encamped on the Smithville road, about twenty-five miles from this point. On my arrival at the point designated, I found that the camp had broken up, and that Colonel Freeman had moved with his command northwardly. I then, upon consultation with Captain Majors, determined to follow him, and attack him wherever I might find him. In accordance with this determination, I moved the command through Smithville to a point on Spring River, known as the Widow Marshall's, w
