, that further efforts would not be profitable, and therefore the troops should be withdrawn from John's Island. These operations lasted about six days, during which there was a good deal of hard work and the usual display of gallantry on the part of the Navy, under the guns of which the Army safely re embarked. Rear-Admiral Dahlgren speaks handsomely of his staff, and particularly mentions the services of Commander Balch and Lieutenant-Commanders Semmes, Fillebrown, A. W. Johnson, R. L.
