guns were kept firing until the rebel batteries were silenced. The night was quiet. Saturday, 21.--The rebels attacked again before daybreak, but our batteries soon silenced them. They, however, followed up the attack by sharp-shooters, harassing us much, and compelling our guns' crews to keep under cover. The ports were the chief target, and as soon as they were opened a shower of balls greeted those working at the guns. Strunk, of the forward battery, was shot through the thigh; Thomas Graham was shot in the hand, and assistant-engineer John Hough (or Huff) received ball through his thigh, a serious wound. Altogether, some twenty were wounded in the different boats. The Carondelet seemed to get her full share of the hard knocks, being in the advance. At three A. M. Col. Smith, of the Eighth Missouri, arrived most opportunely with eight hundred men, and brought word that Gen. Sherman, with ten thousand men, was within about a day's march of us. Col. Smith's sharpshooters no
The Fort Jackson mutineers. --By the following paragraph, from the Vicksburg Whig of the 7th, it appears that justice has overtaken some of these traitors: Three of the Fort Jackson mutineers were shot here yesterday. Their names were: Sergeant W. H. Brown, Company D. 1st regiment Louisiana Heavy Artillery, and Dennis Kean and Thomas Graham, of Company B, same regiment. These men mutinied at Fort Jackson on the night of the 27th of April last, and went over to the enemy's vessels, giving them, of course, information as to our strength, condition, &c. At the fight on bayondes Allemands, some time afterwards, they were taken prisoners and brought here to be exchanged as members of a Vermont regiment. They were immediately recognized by the regiment to which they originally belonged, and lodged in jail. Their fate, though hard, was nevertheless just, and we trust it will have a salutary effect throughout our army here.
