raft alongside and with flames running up the rigging on the tarred rope to the mast-head. The tug Mosher was near by, but I did not see the ram Manassas. It was evidently Craven's intention when he saw Farragut's trouble to go to his rescue. As the engine stopped, the Brooklyn dropped down, her head swinging to starboard, until she was on a line between Fort Jackson and the Hartford. The Flag-ship Hartford attacked by a fire-raft, pushed by the Confederate tug-boat Mosher. Commander Albert Kautz, who was at this time lieutenant on the Hartford, in a letter to the Editors thus describes this memorable scene: no sooner had Farragut given the order hard-a-port, than the current gave the ship a broad sheer, and her bows went hard up on a mud bank. As the fire-raft came against the port side of the ship, it became enveloped in flames. We were so near to the shore that from the bowsprit we could reach the tops of the bushes, and such a short distance above Fort St. Philip th

s destroyed when taking a fire-raft alongside the Hartford. Of the little tug Music and three of the rams I know nothing beyond seeing them burn and explode their magazines after being deserted. My old classmates and messmates among the officers, and shipmates among the crews of the United States ships at New Orleans, treated me with great kindness. To mention a few, Captain Lee shared his cabin with me; Lieutenant J. S. Thornton gave me his room on board the Hartford, and with Lieutenant Albert Kautz made it possible for me to extend some hospitality to friends who called upon me. Lieutenant-Commanding Crosby on receiving me on board the Pinola gave me the freedom of the cabin. When taking me to the Colorado Lieutenants Kidder Breese and Phil Johnson, both my classmates, came with offers of money and clothes, as did Acting Master Furber. When on board the Oneida, anchored close to the levee at the city, I slept from choice under a shelter aft — not a poop deck exactly — which

ord Professor J. Russell Soley, U. S. N., in a communication to the Editors, gives the following discussion of the question, Did the Manassas ram the Hartford at the battle of New Orleans? In the affirmative is the following testimony: (1) Captain Kautz, a lieutenant on board the Hartford, says that immediately after the Hartford went ashore she was struck by the fire-raft which was pushed up by the tug Mosher, and immediately after that event the Manassas struck her and turned her round so that the Manassas should have struck such a blow to the Hartford as Warley describes and have left no traceable injury. (5) It is exceedingly improbable that the Manassas would have struck the Hartford under such advantageous circumstances as Captain Kautz describes (when the Hartford was ashore) and have had no effect other than to turn the Hartford round so that she slid off the shoal. (6) Commander Watson informs me that he thinks it is a mistake to suppose that the Manassas touched the Hart

Incidents of the occupation of New Orleans. Albert Kautz, Captain, U. S. N. The maintop of the Hartford, with howitzer. At 1 o'clock P. M. of the 25th of April, 1862, Farragut's squadron, having completed its memorable passage of Forts Jackson and St. Philip, and having silenced the Chalmette batteries, anchored in front of the city of New Orleans in a drenching rain. Captain Theodorus Bailey, being second in command, claimed the privilege of carrying ashore the demand for the suscended first, shoved the hatch cover to one side, and gained the roof. I followed him, and finding the halliards knotted, I drew my sword and cut them; we then hauled the flag down, Captain Bell in his diary says that when he offered to Lieutenant Kautz the privilege of hauling down the flag the latter waived the offer in favor of George Russell, boatswain's mate of the Hartford, to whom the honor had been promised.--Editors. took it to the floor below and handed it to Captain Bell, who on

be made ready for transmission to the fleet, two officers, Lieutenant Albert Kautz and Midshipman John H. Read, appeared bearing a written deishable offense.--M. A. B. It will be noted that on page 92 Commander Kautz says the flag was raised over the Mint on the morning of Aprilommunication to the mayor dated April 28th. Apparently, therefore, Kautz has made the mistake of connecting the first flag with the order fo second flag.--Editors. I returned to the City Hall before Lieutenant Kautz and Midshipman Read had concluded their visit. A large and extheir boat, proposed to send them back under military escort. Lieutenant Kautz thought that quite unnecessary, but the mayor persisting that of the hall, and their force being stationed, Captain Bell and Lieutenant Kautz passed across the street, mounted the hall steps, and entered ion. Here he remained until the flag had been hauled down and Lieutenant Kautz and Captain Bell had reappeared. At an order from the officer

ter the action--80-pounder rifle, 32-pounders and 8-inch shot; also, rifle and musket balls--one of our men being wounded by the latter while working a howitzer in the top. The executive officer, James S. Thornton, deserves much credit for his excellent distribution of the crew, at the gun and other divisions, and his efficient distribution of them during the action. The commanding officers of divisions also deserve mention — doing their duty with spirit and ability. They were: Lieutenant Albert Kautz, first division; Master John C. Watson, second division; Acting-Master Daniel C. Murphy, third division; Acting-Master Ezra L. Goodwin, powder division. The marine guard, under charge of Captain John L. Broome, had charge of two broadside guns, and fought them well, thus sustaining the reputation of that distinguished corps. In making this report it gives me an opportunity to supply an omission inadvertently made in my last report of the battle of the 24th and 25th of April; it

fended by an abatis. The eager troops swept across the marsh, scaled the heights, Sept. 29, carried the works at the point of the bayonet and secured the key-point to the Confederate defenses in that quarter. Before the storming party reached the works 200 of them fell dead, and not less than 1,000 were killed, wounded or captured. The Confederates attempted to retake Fort Harrison, Oct. 1, 1864. The troops were under the immediate direction of General Lee. They were driven back, with a loss of seven battle-flags and almost the annihilation of Clingman's North Carolina brigade. Meanwhile General Kautz had pushed up and entered the Confederate outer line, Attack on Fort Harrison. within 3 or 4 miles of Richmond, when he was attacked and driven back, with a loss of nine guns and 400 of his men made prisoners. The Confederates were in turn assailed by the 10th National Army Corps, and, after a severe battle, were driven back, with a loss of 700 men and three brigade commanders.

In 1899 Admiral Kautz figured prominently in settling the troubles at Samoa. In March of that year, after he arrived at the scene of the trouble, on board the Philadelphia, he spenhostilities which lasted for several days. About 175 sailors were landed from the American and British war-ships. Before order was restored, several American and British officers and sailors were killed, and others wounded. The loss of the natives was supposed to have been very heavy. Admiral Kautz was retired in January, 190
