William M. Fenton. N. M. Pratt, Adjutant. Boston Transcript account. Beaufort, S. C., January 2, 1862. On December 31st, orders were issued at headquarters on Hilton Head, for the Forty-seventh New-York and the Forty-eighth New-York, Col. Frazier and Col. Perry, to be in marching trim in one hour, with rations for three days, and report to Gen. Stevens, commanding the Second brigade E. C., at Beaufort, S. C. At the same time Corn. Dupont issued orders to the gunboats Ottawa, Capt. Rogers, Pembina, Captain Bankhead, the Seneca, the Ellen, and Hale. The Forty-seventh and Forty-eighth embarked on the transports Delaware and Boston, under convoy of the Ottawa and Pembina, all of which, with one thousand men of the Forty-eighth, and about six hundred men of the Forty-seventh, reported ready for service at headquarters, about five o'clock on the 31st December. Gen. Stevens's command consisted of the Seventy-ninth Highlanders, quartered at and near the ferry called Port Royal F
, a white flag made its appearance. The result was, that I rode to Gen. Buckner's quarters, sending Lieut. Ross, with Major Rogers, of the Third Mississippi (rebel) regiment, to inform General Grant that the place was surrendered, and my troops in pday, and I feel proud I have received this positive evidence of their good qualities as officers. Lieutenants Taylor and Rogers, in command of a company, behaved gallantly during the day. Below you have a list of casualties in my regiment: Co.eut.-Col. Robb, of Clarksville Capt. May, of Memphis; Capt. Porter of Nashville. Fourteenth Mississippi regiment. Judge Rogers, Monroe County, Mississippi; Sergeant John Clark, R. M. Bell, J. Q. Wall, George James. wounded.

at not being fitted for the purpose, and could, therefore, be of little use. The men had to seek cover on shore, but as soon as it was dark Acting Master's Mate McIntosh returned to the boats, brought away the body of one of the crew who had been killed, all the arms, ammunition, and flags, threw the howitzer into the river, passed close to the rebel pickets, who hailed, but elicited no reply, and arrived safely on board the Henry Andrew. On hearing of this untoward event, I directed Commander Rogers to send off the launch and cutters of this ship to the support of the Andrew. The boats crossed the bar at midnight, and the next morning the vessel was hauled close up to the scene of the late attack, but no enemy could be discovered. The bodies of Lieut. Budd and Acting Master Mather were received under a flag of truce. The commanding officer, a Capt. Bird, who had come from a camp at a distance, made some show of courtesy by returning papers and a watch, as if ashamed of this mo
ne for a final and desperate charge on our right, when Lieut. Thurber opened upon him, and the result was a disorderly retreat. Col. Woods, of the Seventy-sixth, moved along the line as the battle progressed to the westward, and took the place of the First Nebraska while it went for a supply of cartridges. He reports the conduct of his men under fire as all he could desire. The enemy's sharpshooters annoyed the Twentieth regiment very much, particularly the field officers, wounding Capt. Rogers, of company A, in command of our skirmishers. This regiment, and the right of Col. Leggett's, were exposed nearly an hour to a very precise fire of the two-gun battery, which they bore with remarkable coolness. Eighteen prisoners were taken by this brigade. Our loss is two killed; one mortally, eight severely, and twenty-one slightly wounded. I am your obedient servant, Charles Whittlesey, Colonel Commanding Third Brigade, Third Division, Army of the Tennessee. Report of Co
