aval victory. To make a long story short, he is perfect master of his profession in my opinion, second to none, and so considered by all on board the Unadilla. On the morning of the 7th November at nine o'clock the signal was made from the flag-ship to get under way, a signal we had been watching anxiously for some time. I never saw an anchor come up livelier in my life. We then started up the bay in the following order: Wabash, Susquehanna, Seminole, Mohican, Pawnee, Unadilla, Ottawa, Seneca, Pembina, Augusta, Bienville, Curlew, Penguin, Pocahontas, Isaac Smith, and R. B. Forbes. The two batteries are called Forts Beauregard and Walker. The former on the right, on Bay Point, the other on the left, on Hilton Head. The former mounting eighteen guns, and the other twenty-two, and big ones, too--ten-inch columbiads and eighty pounders, rifled. We commenced on Fort Beauregard and so round to Fort Walker, keeping under weigh and going round, first one fort and then the other. T

On Thursday morning, at 9 o'clock, the flag-ship Wabash signalled to form in the order of battle.

United States flagship Wabash, Port Royal harbor, Dec. 12, 1861. sir: I left Tybee Roads before daylight yesterday morning, with the Ottawa, Seneca, Pembina, and Henry Andrew, and crossed the bar at Ossabaw soon after eight o'clock. Entering and passing up Vernon River, we discovered, on the eastern end, on Green Island, a fort mounting eight guns, apparently of heavy calibre. Near it we saw about seventy-five tents.

We were exactly two nautical mile
