left the side of the vessel, Captain Gray said, Give way, men, give way; do your duty; to which the boatswain, Mr. Lewis, replied: Ay, Ay, sir; we'll not come back without them. Well, the gallant fellow kept his word, for every man was saved, though they had been in the water over two hours, and it was dark before the boat reached them. While relating this, I must not forget to do justice to the Virginia's boat's crew, who have been stationed constantly on board the McClellan. Master's Mate Rogers immediately manned his boat, and also started to their assistance. On the arrival of the fleet off Brazos Santiago, Mr. Comstock and Captain Phillips volunteered their services for the purpose of sounding the bar. The work of disembarking the troops is nearly complete, but two or three regiments yet remaining upon steamers drawing too much water to go over the bar. They are being transferred on board schooners and light-draught boats as rapidly as possible, and before to-morrow night

Flanagan, Minor, Luckey; Lieutenants Hains, Brewster, Likins, Brainard, Hall.

Lieutenant Rogers's battery was in the advance, with Captains Closson's and Nim's batteries in reserve. About seven o'clock A. M. the Third brigade, of General Grover's division, at this time in command of the advance, and supported by two sections of Rogers's battery, now skirmished with the rebels in front for about an hour, our skirmishers and their supports engaging the infkirt of woods. He had no sooner done this, than the enemy commenced a flank attack, endeavoring to take the section of Rogers's battery which was on the right. These two regiments, assailed by a fire on their front and right from an enemy very to the front and rallied them, at the same time ordering General Dwight to hasten up with his brigade. The section of Rogers's battery was compelled to limber up and go the rear, the fire of the enemy being so lively as to pick off nine cannoneer
commander of the battery. It was thought at first that he was taken prisoner, as his horse came into our lines riderless. He has since been found, however. Early in the afternoon, a section of company D, Second Illinois artillery, under Captain Rogers, advanced to dangerously close proximity to the rebel lines, and opened two twenty-four pound howitzers, to drive the rebels from a position from which they were about to advance upon our men. They filed out of the woods in excellent order, arder. They ran into the woods like a flock of frightened sheep, as load after load of grape and canister burst among them. I have never witnessed a more thorough rout than that which the rebels met with in their attempt to get possession of Captain Rogers's guns. Shortly after the commencement of the general engagement, the rebels brought a battery of four to bear upon the First brigade of General Hovey's division, and were inflicting serious punishment with it.
