On the 4th of June, the Adjutant-General reported to the Governor, in writing, that he had received a large number of reports from our batteries in the Army of the Gulf, which related to matters which he deemed proper to acquaint him with. The first was a letter from Captain Hamlin, of the Thirteenth Battery, which had left Boston on the 31st of January, but which was detained at Fortress Monroe, and, after a very long and tedious voyage, arrived at New Orleans on the 10th of May.
