The following persons were killed and wounded:--Killed, John Fuller, master's mate; Geo. Seymour, seaman; Thos Tully, seaman. Wounded, Ernest Walton, seaman. The men who escaped state that the boat on the shore had two casks in her. We were unable to secure her. Very respectfully, Wm. Budd, Commanding Resolute. To Capt. craven, Commanding Potomac Flotilla.
