were fired on by the Confederate batteries, consisting of six or eight fieldpieces, some of them rifled. but did not notice the attack till they were within a thousand yards, when they opened fire and soon silenced the enemy. The gun-boats then continued on till abreast of where the enemy had posted his heaviest batteries, and under cover of a fire of grape and canister, a force was landed in two boats from each of the vessels, including a portion of Co. C, Capt. Phillips, and Co. K, Lieut. Rider, of the 3-d Illinois Volunteers (sharpshooters). The boats of the Taylor were commanded by Master J. Goudy, and those of the Lexington by Master Martin Dunn. It was found on landing that besides the artillerists, the enemy had two regiments of infantry and one of cavalry, and this little landing party held them in check until their object was accomplished, viz.: to ascertain the enemy's force and purpose, and to destroy a building in the vicinity of which the batteries had been placed.
