This was not to be borne with patience, as Colonel Brown had frequently warned General Bragg that the presence of these steamers would not be put up with. As she approached, Fort Pickens opened upon her, when she retreated at double-quick time. The fire from Fort Pickens was immediately answered from all the rebel batteries and the engagement became general. The firing was kept up throughout the day, and at night Pickens maintained a slow fire from the thirteen-inch mortars, which was hotly returned by the rebels. About eleven P. M. a fire broke out in the navy-yard, which continued throughout the night, and from the extent of the conflagration it is supposed that the greater part of the buildings in the navy-yard have been destroyed, and also the larger part, if not all, the town of Woolsey, which is adjoining the navy-yard on the north. The firing on both sides was remarkable for its extreme accuracy.
tery that night consisted of fifteen infantry and two mounted men, in command of a lieutenant, so the surviving prisoner states. We buried the other properly the next day near the camp of the Forty-seventh regiment. His name is Jos. A. Wilson, company C, Moore's battalion, stationed at Church Flats. The other, now on board this vessel, is William M. Evins, from Raebun County, Ga., of the same company. According to his account there are two regiments at Church Flats, sending pickets out regularly to Rockville, Bear Bluff, and other points on the east side of the river, their men illfed, not paid or clothed, and badly treated. Wilson was from Pickens District, S. C. The musket we have taken from them is of the Enfield pattern, has the Tower mark, date 1861. Both cartridge-boxes contained Ely's London stamped cartridges. . . . . Very respectfully, your obedient servant, A. C. Rhind, Lieutenant Commanding. Flag-Officer Du Pont, Commanding South-Atlantic Blockading Squadron.
