Everything possible was being done to relieve the vessel and get her off, when they were attacked by a force of concealed riflemen and a brisk engagement took place, in which the Barrataria used her guns and also musketry with good effect. There were on board the Barrataria Colonel Clarke, Captain Gordon, Lieutenant Ellis, and ten privates of the 6th Michigan Volunteers; the latter did good service with their rifles. The engagement lasted over half an hour, when the enemy ceased firing. Efforts were still made to get the Barrataria off, but without avail. The bow gun was spiked and thrown overboard and the water blown out of the boilers; the Barrataria still stuck fast.

e that the enemy fled precipitately. Commander Balch speaks in the highest terms of Lieutenant-Commander Meade's coolness and bravery, the management of his vessel, and the remarkable rapidity of his fire. On the conclusion of the firing, General Gordon, commanding the troops at the south end of Folly Island. sent an infantry force to bring off the guns left by the Confederates; which, on reaching the spot where the batteries were posted, found two guns, one soldier in the throes of death, all did so well.

Balch. men from the Pawnee; 4 boats, 4 officers and 20 men from the Marblehead, and 1 officer and 12 men from the C. P
