, Mitchell at once removed the responsibility for the act from all but three or four officers. The prisoners were sent up river to Flag-officer Farragut for his disposition, but though afterward sent to the North, and held in confinement for some time, nothing was done to the guilty actors, and the matter finally dropped. After all the defenses were in Union hands Commander Porter dispatched a steamer to the bar, and brought up a vessel of General Butler's expedition, having on board General Phelps with a number of infantry, to whom the forts were turned over. The total loss in the fleet during these engagements was 35 killed, and 128 wounded. The chief sufferers were the Pensacola, 37; Brooklyn, 35; and the Iroquois, 28. The rising sun, the morning after the fight, shone on smiling faces, even among the wounded. Farragut received the congratulations of his officers, as he had conducted the great fight, with imperturbility. He wasted no time in vain regrets over the saddeni

tried for their infamous conduct. I have a great deal to do here, and will send you all papers when I am able to arrange them. I turned over the forces to General Phelps. Fort Jackson is a perfect ruin. I am told that over 1,800 shells fell in and burst over the centre of the fort. The practice was beautiful. The next fort eople united again under the folds of the flag of the Union.

My next step was to visit Forts Jackson and St. Philip. Never in my life did I wght of the forts just as our own flags were hoisted in place of the rebel ensigns. I towed up a large transport ship with 1,300 troops on board, under Brigadier-General Phelps, and taking five companies of them on board the Clifton, landed them at both forts — they receiving their possession of them from the naval officers of y

uerrillas and gun-boats, in which the rebels have been defeated in every instance. So constant are these attacks that we cease to think of them as of any importance, though there has been much gallantry displayed on many occasions. Lieutenant-Commanders Phelps and Fitch have each had command of the Cumberland and Tennessee Rivers, and have shown themselves to be most able officers. I feel no apprehension at any time with regard to movements in that quarter. Had it not been for the activity and energy displayed by Lieutenant-Commander Fitch, Captain Pennock and Lieutenant-Commander Phelps, General Rosecrans would have been left without provisions. To Captain Walke, Commander Woodworth, Lieutenant-Commanders Breese, Foster, Greer, Shirk, Owen, Wilson, Walker, Bache, Murphy, Selfridge, Prichett, Ramsay and Acting-Volunteer-Lieutenant Hoel, I feel much indebted for their active and energetic attention to all my orders, and their ready co-operation with the Army corps commanders,
