rossed the bay last night, landed at Santa Rosa Island at 2 o'clock in the morning, and stormed the camp of Billy Wilson's Zouaves, burning and destroying every building, except the hospital; also destroying an immense quantity of rations, equipments, stores, and ammunition, and spiking their cannon. They effected a total destruction of the camp. The loss of the enemy was very great. The loss of the Confederates was forty killed and wounded. Capt. Bradford, of Florida, was killed; Lieut. Nelms, of Ga., killed; Walter Tuggle; of the Continentals, desperately wounded; John Burgess, killed; Gen. Anderson was wounded in the arm; Lieut. Sayre, wounded in the hip. This list is imperfect.
