Doc. 89.-occupation of Jacksonville, Fla. Report of Lieut. Stevens. U. S. Gunboat Ottawa, off Jacksonville, March 18. To Flag-Officer S. F. Du Pont, commanding South-Atlantic Blockading Squadron. sir: I succeeded in crossing the bar with this vessel, the Seneca and Pembina, the day before yesterday, about four o'clock, having no water to spare under our keels. The Smith arrived half an hour afterward, and crossed without a pilot, as it was necessary to make arrangements to land a company of soldiers for the protection of the guns, before leaving the entrance of the river. I found it too late to move up to this place. That evening, near ten o'clock, I discovered large fires bearing west-north-west from the anchorage, which proved to be, on my arrival here, the burning of mills, houses, and property belonging to Northern men with suspected Union proclivities, burnt by order of the rebel commander. I left Mayport yesterday, with the vessels named, for this point, orderin
n, and much poverty exists. In the water-battery at the Fort, are three fine army thirty — two--pounders of seven thousand pounds, and two eight-inch sea-coast howitzers of fifty-six hundred pounds, with shot and some powder. There are a number of very old guns in the Fort, useless and not mounted. Several good guns were taken away some months ago, to arm batteries at other harbors. The garrison of the place went from St. Augustine, at midnight on the tenth, for Smyrna, where are said to be about eight hundred troops, a battery, the steamer Carolina, and a considerable quantity of arms and ammunition. It is very positively stated that the Governor has ordered the abandonment of East-Florida, and proposes to make a stand near Apalachicola. Mr. Dennis, of the Coast Survey, who accompanied me, rendered me much valuable aid. I have the honor to be, very respectfully, C. R. P. Rodgers, Commander. Flag-Officer S. F. Du Pont, Commanding South-Atlantic Blockading Squadron.

I am, sir, respectfully, etc., John P. Gillis, Commanding. Flag-Officer S. F. Du Pont. U. S. Steamer Seminole, Nassau Sound, Ga., March 26, 1862. The following statement is derived from London Middleton, a contraband, picked up this P. M. by the Norwich and sent on board this ship, namely:. His master was Wm. P. F, and fight our forces on their arrival. The first bridge is reckoned to be five miles across, from the Cupola House, (last night burnt by the rebels,) near Skidaway (abandoned) battery. Respectfully, etc., John P. Gillis, Commander. Flag-Officer S. F. Du Pont. New-York Commercial account U. S. Steamer Seminole, Warsaw Sound, Ga., March 25. To-day at twelve M., signal was made by the senior captain, John P. Gillis, commanding the Warsaw squadron, for the vessels in the harbor, con
ed, that they are willing to follow the advice of Messrs. Toombs and Cobb, by placing the torch in the hands of the children, to consume their property. All that is done in that way, seems to be done by the order of military commanders, who, having no local interest in the neighborhood of their command, have the heroism to consume the property in which they have no immediate interest. I am, very respectfully, your obedient servant, S. W. Godon, Commander and Senior Officer. To Flag-Officer S. F. Du Pont, Commanding South-Atlantic Blockading Squadron. United States steamer Mohican, St. Simon's Island, March 16, 1862. sir: I have the honor to report that on the thirteenth inst. I started in the Potomska, accompanied by the Pocahontas, with the launch and howitzer of this ship in charge of Lieut. Miller in tow, and proceeded through the inland passage toward the Altamaha River. I had heard that there were one or two rebel steamers at Darien, and I hoped that I might get posses
se inventions, almost equalling, as it would appear, the revolution accomplished in naval warfare by the iron-clad vessels recently constructed. These operations, with the cordial assistance and cooperation of the naval forces, under Flag-Officer S. F. Du Pont, have been accomplished by a portion of the troops of my division, for the most part under the immediate direction of Capt. Q. A. Gilmore, Corps of Engineers, Acting Brig.-General, and Chief Engineer of the siege, to whose report, a copour obedient servant, S. F. Du Pont, Flag-Officer Com'g South-Atlantic Blockading Squadron.
