Breese in the Black Hawk and comprised the Baron DeKalb, Lieutenant-Commander John G. Walker, Choctaw, Lieutenant-Commander F. M. Ramsay, Taylor. Lieutenant-Commander Prichett, Signal, Romeo, Linden and Petrel with three 13-inch mortars. The naval demonstration was really a fine one, calculated to impress the Confederates, who had seen so many nondescripts pass Via hand-to-hand fight by Mr. Kendrick, who knocked him down with a pistol. In two days firing, the DeKalb expended two hundred rounds of shot and shells, did not suffer materially in her hull, and had only one casualty.

She was struck forty-seven times in her hull, and had thirteen shots through her smoke-stack. The tur

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, at all times, which enabled them to carry out their plans successfu

On the 6th of June, the Admiral, who had general charge of matters in that quarter, hearing that some of the enemy's troops had been seen hovering around Milliken's Bend, sent the Choctaw, Lieutenant-Commander F. M. Ramsay, up to that place with orders to be ready for an emergency At 2.15 A.
