The Daily Dispatch: December 21, 1861., [Electronic resource], Important from Mississippi sound — large Lincoln force on Ship Island — immense reinforcements expected. (search)
The expedition is to be about 40,000 strong, and it is to be well supported by light-draught gunboats of the most approved kind, drawing from 6 to 14 feet water. It is supposed that the object of the expedition is to attack Mobile or New Orleans. If Mobile, the army expects to land near Pascagoula and march through to Mobile, when the fleet will attack Fort Morgan. The Lincolnites are anxious to get lake pilots, and had offered the writer of this high wages if he would act in that capacity. They boast of having cut the telegraph cable at Bay St. Louis, and say they were piloted in by a man from Biloxi named John — the same fellow that the vigilance committee had ordered away from Biloxi last spring. As soon as they get their light-draught gun-boats out, they intend that none of our gun-boats shall pass Fort Pike. The New London is very anxious to have a fight with the Florida, or she will fight the Florida and Pamlico together, if they will only come into 12 feet water.
