Doc. 21.--Capt. McGowan's report. steamship Star of the West, New York, Saturday, Jan. 12, 1861. M. O. Roberts, Esq.--Sir: After leaving the wharf on the 5th inst., at 5 o'clock P. M., we proceeded down the Bay, where we hove to, and took on board four officers and two hundred soldiers, with their arms, ammunition, &c., and then proceeded to sea, crossing the bar at Sandy Hook at 9 P. M. Nothing unusual took place during the passage, which was a pleasant one for this season of the ye A steamer from Charleston followed us for about three hours, watching our movements. In justice to the officers and crews of each department of the ship, I must add that their behavior while under the fire of the battery reflected great credit on them. Mr. Brewer, the New York pilot, was of very great assistance to me in helping to pilot the ship over Charleston Bar, and up and down the channel. Very respectfully, your obedient servant, John McGowan, Captain. --Times, Jan. 14.
