Doc. 29 1/2.-the Burnside expedition. A correspondent of the New-York Commercial Advertiser gives the following minute account of the voyage of the fleet from Hampton Roads, Va., to its destination: on board steamer Cossack, January 13. At half-past 9 o'clock on Saturday night, January eleventh, an order to steam up and get away as speedily as possible came on board the Cossack, and in twenty minutes the anchor was up and the wheels moving. Such promptness is highly creditable Monroe at intervals during the past week are said to have made Hatteras Inlet and the military station there the rendezvous. The sealed orders are at last opened, and we know that we are to pass through Hatteras Inlet. The passage through Hampton Roads was illumined by the rays of the moon, but as we approached the lightship off Cape Charles, we seemed to be pursued by a dense fog, which soon after-wards enveloped us in a damp embrace. The position of the moon was indicated by a lighter sh
island, resulting in the capture of the prisoners mentioned above. We have had no time to count them, but the number is estimated at near three thousand. Our men fought bravely, and have endured most manfully the hardships incident to fighting through swamps and dense thickets. It is impossible to give the details of the engagement, or to mention meritorious officers and men, in the short time allowed for writing this report, the naval vessel carrying it starting immediately for Hampton Roads, and the reports of the Brigadier-Generals have not yet been handed in. It is enough to say that the officers and men of both arms of the service have fought gallantly, and the plans agreed upon before leaving Hatteras were carried out. I will be excused for saying in reference to the action, that I owe everything to Generals Foster, Reno and Parker, as more full details will show. I am sorry to report the loss of about thirty-five killed, and about two hundred wounded, ten of the

Doc. 82.-fight in Hampton roads, Va., March 8th and 9th, 1862. Flag-officer Marston's report. United States steamer Roanoke, Hampton roads, March 9, 1862. To Hon. Gideon Welles, Secretary of the Navy: sir: I horden, which had arrived the previous evening at Hampton Roads, came alongside and reported for duty, and then ad run ashore in attempting to get up to us from Hampton Roads, not being able to get a single gun to bear uponhe James River squadron and the enemy's fleet at Hampton Roads on the eighth instant. The officers and men of . The official report of the naval battle in Hampton Roads was read. The accompanying letter of the Secretauthentic statement of the great naval battle in Hampton Roads: On Saturday morning, the United States friga drive our troops into the Fortress, and command Hampton Roads against any number of wooden vessels the Governmrings at the navy-yard, and made her way down to Hampton Roads, toward the blockading fleet lying off Newport N
Doc. 95.-battle of Newbern, N. C., fought March 14, 1862. General Burnside's report. headquarters Department of North-Carolina, Newbern, March 16, 1862. General L. Thomas, Adjutant-General United States Army: General: I have the honor to report that, after embarking the troops with which I intended to attack Newbern, in conjunction with the naval force, on the morning of the eleventh, a rendezvous was made at Hatteras Inlet. Flag-Officer Goldsborough having been ordered to Hampton Roads, the naval fleet was left in command of Com. Rowan. Early on the morning of the twelfth, the entire force started for Newbern, and that night anchored off the mouth of Slocum's Creek, some eighteen miles from Newbern, where I, had decided to make a landing. The landing commenced by seven o'clock the next morning, under cover of the naval fleet, and was effected with the greatest enthusiasm by the troops. Many, too impatient for the boats, leaped into the water, and waded, waist-deep, t
ing of the twenty-eighth of February last, there was only the State of Georgia on this blockade to protect three entrances — which it is impossible for one steamer to do. Three days after the Nashville had run in this vessel arrived here from Hampton Roads, and we found to our mortification such to be the case. The State of Georgia being short of coal could remain here but a few days. She despatched at once the facts of the case to the nearest blockading station — Wilmington. The Mount Vernon then left there, and proceeded to Hampton Roads with the intelligence. The Cambridge was ordered down here in consequence, and reached here on the morning of the eleventh of March, making three vessels on this blockade. The State of Georgia was compelled to leave for reasons already stated. She left on the six-teenth. The Nashville had steamed down from her former position in the harbor, and on the day previous to running out was lying close under the guns of Fort Macon. We kept a shar
62. Since my last letter I have been engaged in voyaging between this ship and those on the bar at South-west Pass, watching with interest the efforts which have been made to get the heavy draught vessels into the river. The Mississippi, Iroquois, and Oneida have come in, but the Pensacola is still outside, trying to come up. I think a little more tugging will bring her in also. The Connecticut is here with a meagre mail for us; but she brings us intelligence of the sad disasters in Hampton Roads, which we were afraid at first was of a more doleful character. To-day we have been eye-witnesses of a start little brush between the gunboat Kineo and the flag-ship of the rebel flotilla. The scene of the skirmish was a few miles above us, and most of the firing could be witnessed from our topgallant forecastle. Just before noon a steamer appeared in sight at the point above us, steaming down the river. We noticed immediately that she was a stranger, and that she wore the blue fla
olute Dissenter as he was, sent the Pope after them. [Laughter.] But, he said, we had met to resolve that the widows and children of the brave men who fell in Hampton Roads should not suffer. Those men fought, not for glory, but for duty's sake; but glory they should have. He believed that the providential care which watched over us was especially marked in the Yankee cheese-box on the raft which entered Hampton Roads that Saturday night. Fear not for the Republic. The decree had been registered in heaven that it should not perish. The Cross alone should float above our flag, and they should go down together, shedding benedictions on all hands until thehis meeting, some recognition of the heroic and gallant conduct of the officers and crews of the frigates Cumberland and Congress during the late engagement at Hampton Roads, is eminently due from the Government, and that it be recommended to the Navy Department to prepare a suitable medal to be presented to each of the surviving o
Doc. 130.-the Second visit of the Merrimac. April 11, 1862. The following is the account given by the Baltimore American's correspondent: Fortress Monroe, Friday, April 11. I said two days since, that we were looking for the Merrimac and sunshine together. Both are here this morning. The day opened bright and clear, with the broad expanse of Hampton Roads almost unruffled by a wave. About seven o'clock a signal-gun from the Minnesota turned all eyes toward Sewell's Point, and coming out from under the land, almost obscured by the dim haze, the Merrimac was seen, followed by the York-town, Jamestown, and four smaller vessels, altogether seven in number. There was instantaneous activity among the transports and vessels in the Upper Roads, to get out of the way. Steamboats, several of which were crowded with troops, moved down out of danger. Steam-tugs ran whist-ling and screaming, towing strings of vessels behind them, whilst sloops, schooners and brigs took advanta
with so little loss of life, particularly as the interior of the Fort was literally covered with the fragments of the bombs and shells, and many of their guns were disabled. I herewith enclose the reports of the several commanders, and it gives me great pleasure to commend the gallantry of all. See Supplement. I am, sir, respectfully, your obedient servant, Samuel Lockwood, Commander and Senior Officer present. To Flag-Officer Lewis M. Goldsborough, U. S. Flagship Minnesota, Hampton Roads, Va. New-York Tribune account. Fort Macon, April 26, 1862. By the active exertions of Lieut. D. W. Flagler, Ordnance Officer-in-Chief and Captain King, Quartermaster of Gen. Parke's division, the ordnance and ordnance stores were rafted across the shoals of Bogue Sound, and the mortar-batteries were in such a state of forwardness when Gen. Burnside came down on Saturday last, that he pronounced them almost ready for action. The battery of Parrott guns was also completed and rea
