retary Navy. United States steamship Arizona, Sabine bar, September 10, 1863. sir: At six A. M., on the eighth, the Clifton stood in the bay, and opened fire on the fort, to which no reply was made. At nine A. M., the Arizona, Sachem, and Granite City, followed by the transports, stood over the bay, and with much difficulty, owing to the shallowness of the water, reached anchorage, but miles from the fort, at eleven A. M., the gunboats covering the transports. At half-past 3 P. M., the Sacless intended as the first step in a campaign the results of which promised to be of the most brilliant and lasting character. Accompanying the land force was a naval force of four light draught gunboats, consisting of the Clifton, Arizona, Granite City, and Sachem, and the plan was for these to silence the batteries, drive back the enemy, and cover the landing of the troops.

The flotilla consisted of the Clifton, Lieutenant Crocker; Sachem, Lieutenant Amos Johnson; Arizona, Acting-Master H. Tibbetts; and Granite City, Acting-Master C. W. Samson-all light-draft vessels. The expedition sailed on the 5th of September. Instead of following his instructions, to land lis troops below Sabine Pass, Franklin arranged with Crocker to have the gun-boats make a dirtember, the gun-boats and trans. ports crossed the bar at Sabine Pass, and in the afternoon the Clifton, Sachem, and Arizona, went up two separate channels to attack the fort (which mounted eight heavy guns, three of them rifled), leaving the Granite City to cover the landing of a division of troops, under General Weitzel, at a proper time. The Confederate garrison was ready for them, the expedition having been in sight for twenty-eight hours, and when the three gunboats were abreast the fort

Each of these vessels carried several guns of ls close to the western shore of Sabine Pass and the Confederate works. At a certain distance in rear of her comes the Granite City, escorting the transports that have been able to pass the bar. These vessels are, at a given signal, to land on this st capture it all; and the more easily as a part of the transports have stranded near the shore, and the captain of the Granite City hastened to repair to the high seas with his ship. Fortunately, the Confederates, busy with the capture they have just made, allow night to come upon them, and the transports, protected by the Granite City, which has at last returned, recross the bar, followed by the Arizona, again released. The failure of the expedition was complete. The capture of the Sachem an
