ve. This arduous and perilous service was well performed. On the 11th of December, Commander Walke dispatched the two tin-clads on a reconnoisance up the Yazoo. They ascended some twenty miles, when they were apprized of the presence of torpedoes by a great number of small boats along the channel of the river and an explosion near the Signal. Another torpedo was exploded from the Marmora by firing into it with a musket as it appeared just below the surface. The commanding Lieut.-Commander T. O. Selfridge, (now Captain U. S. Navy.) officers of these two vessels reported that with the assistance of two iron-clads to keep down the sharpshooters, they could clear the river of torpedoes, but not otherwise, as there were rifle-pits all along the left bank of the Yazoo, and the enemy were supplied with light artillery. At Lieutenant-Commander Selfridge's request he was sent on this duty in the Cairo, with the Pittsburg, Lieut.-Commanding Hoel, and the ram Queen of the West, Colonel Ch

to be accomplished fully warranted the attempt. It has proved successful and will stimulate us to further efforts to break the line which terminates on the Mississippi in such formidable batteries. In a few days the water in the river fell sufficiently for the guns to be removed from the Cincinnati. This was done by the Army at night when the enemy could not see what was going on. Some of the guns were mounted in front of Sherman's division, and were under the command of Lieutenant-Commander T. O. Selfridge, with blue-jackets to work them; and this battery finally accomplished what the Cincinnati had not time to do; viz., clear out the batteries which threatened Sherman's right flank. These guns were also employed in firing upon such points as Sherman pointed out, where he thought it advantageous to clear a way for the Army in case of another assault. The Cincinnati's 9-inch guns were temporarily mounted in the rear of the city, and worked by a party of blue-jackets under Lie

ay and proceed to the attack of those places, but remembering that when the army had got into their rear that the enemy would no longer stay there, he sent Lieutenant Selfridge in a tug to Sewell's Point, and Commander Case in another to Craney Island, to ascertain the position of affairs. Selfridge landed at Sewell's Point andSelfridge landed at Sewell's Point and found that the enemy had departed, on which he hoisted the American flag on the ramparts. When Commander Case arrived at Craney Island he also found the forts deserted. Two Confederate flags were still flying over the works, which he hauled down and replaced with the American colors.

ruary, Admiral Porter fitted out an expedition to go, via the Red River, up the Black and Washita Rivers, under the command of Lieutenant-Commander F. M. Ramsey, for the purpose of breaking up the Confederate posts that were being formed along these rivers and destroying their provisions. The expedition consisted of the following vessels: Fort Hindman, Acting-Volunteer Lieutenant John Pearce; Osage, Acting-Master Thomas Wright; Lexington, Lieutenant George M Bache; Conestoga, Lieutenant-Commander T. O. Selfridge; Cricket, Acting-Master H. H. Gorringe, and Ouichita, Lieutenant-Commander Byron Wilson. The Ouichita was a converted river steamer and carried 39 guns in three tiers. They were mostly 24 and 12 pound howitzers, but she had a battery of 8-inch smoothbores and some rifle-guns on the lower deck. Two 12-pounders were mounted on wooden turrets above all. She was a very formidable vessel for such operations. On the 29th of February the expedition proceeded up the Red River
