they were found by our forces. Fort Hatteras, the nearest to the inlet, is the most important. It is a circular work, riveted with wooden piles, and the sand of which it is composed is double sodded. Four or five of the guns are yet unmounted. Within the circular work are protecting bastions of earth, and a large bomb-proof magazine occupies the centre. The barracks within the work accommodate one company, and are occupied at present by company C, First United States artillery, under Capt. Morris. Fort Clark is a much smaller work, and is occupied by company B, Forty-eighth Pennsylvania volunteers, under the command of Capt. James Wren. The post is under the command of Brigadier-Gen. Thomas Williams, with the following staff: Assistant Adjutant-General, Lieutenant C. Cook; Brigade Quartermaster, Lieut. H. E. Elliott; Commissary of Subsistence, Capt. John Clark; Lieut. G. C. DeKay, A. D.C.; Lieut. J. C. Biddle, A. D.C.; Brigade Surgeon, Dr. T. H. Bache, son of Professor Bache, o

is missing. Master's mate John Harrington was killed. I should judge we have lost upward of one hundred men. I can only say, in conclusion, that all did their duty, and we sank with the American flag flying at the peak. I am, sir, etc., Geo. M. Morris, Lieut. and Executive Officer. Report of Lieutenant Pendergrast. Lieut. Pendergrast states that, owing to the death of the late commanding officer, Joseph B. Smith, it becomes my painful duty to make a report to you of the part which waves. None of our men were captured, but many were drowned as the vessel went. We had about four hundred on board, and I suppose from one hundred and fifty to two hundred were killed during the engagement and drowned at the sinking. Lieut. George M. Morris was in command of the vessel, Capt. Radford being absent on the Roanoke at a court of inquiry. Very few of our men swam ashore, most of those who were rescued from the water being saved by small boats. The Merrimac seemed to be uninjur
hours, and then when changed over to the left, repel the attack of twice his force for a full hour of terrible fighting, closing by the most gallant and successful charge, which gave him time to draw off his force in order, and in comparative safety. His report renders full justice to his officers, among whom Col. Reed of the Forty-fourth Indiana was especially distinguished. My own thanks have been personally tendered on the field of battle to First Lieutenant E. Brotz mann, commanding Morris's battery, and to this command. This battery fought both days under my personal inspection. It was always ready, effective in execution, changing position promptly when required, and officers, men, and horses steady in action. Having lost our piece on Sunday, it was easy to distinguish the fire of this battery throughout Monday, in position first on Gen. McClernand's right, then on his centre, and then on the left, they everywhere fulfilled their duty. I specially recommend this offi
from Capt. Radford, which contained at the close a complimentary mention of Lieut. Morris, who was in command when the Cumberland went down. Three cheers were given for Lieut. Morris. Miss Maria Brainerd sang a charming song — Viva l'america — which was very warmly applauded. A sailor of the Cumberland was then introductook his infernal machine off and ran it into us again. He then asked again, Mr. Morris, calling him by name, will you surrender that ship? Never, says he, if you s do his duty in like manner. [Loud applause.] In response to loud cries for Morris, the Chairman stated that Lieut. Morris had been ordered to Washington. A voLieut. Morris had been ordered to Washington. A voice.--What is the sailor's name? The Chairman —— James Marlow. One of the Cumberland's crew, George McKenney, sang the Red, White, and Blue, the crew joining inot present. His name was Gates. It was proposed to give three cheers for Lieut. Morris. The cheers were given with a will, the crews joining in them. Wm. M
re. Capt. Fearing, the aid-de-camp of Gen. Burnside, accompanied me as a volunteer aid, and rendered efficient and gallant service; also Capt. Ritchie, A. C.S., and Lieutenants Gordon and Breed, of the Signal Corps. My own aids, Lieuts. Reno and Morris, behaved with their usual gallantry. As soon as the brigade and regimental reports are furnished I will forward them, together with a complete list of killed and wounded. The enemy's loss was considerable, but they succeeded in carrying off Graham and Hammill, Lieuts. Bartholomew, Klingsochr, Powell, and McKechnie, wounded, (the latter being in command, the captain of the company having been left in command of this camp;) Capts. Le Baire, Parisen, and Leahy, also Capt. Whiting, Lieuts. Morris and Herbert, in charge of the battery of the regiment, did splendid service. Lieuts. Childs and Barnett, (the captain being absent recruiting,) John K. Perley, (the captain falling out from exhaustion, being sick when he joined the expeditio

I also sent him a letter demanding the surrender of the city, in conformity with the demand made by me yesterday through Capt. Bailey, (copy No. Two.) This morning at six A. M. I sent to Capt. Morris, whose ship commanded the Mint, to take possession of it and hoist the American flag thereon, which was done, and the people cheered it. At ten I sent on shore again and ordered Lieut. Kortz, of the navy, and Lieut. Brown, of the marines, with
