He was to keep in the channel of the river with the Sciota, Winona, Iroquois, Pinola, Itaska, and Kennebec, and push right on to his assigned work without regard to the forside, lost her tow and drifted down the river. Captain Bell was less fortunate. The Sciota, Iroquois, and Pinola, passed the forts, but the Itasca was disabled by a storm of shot, one of which pie

issippi to Vicksburg, and above, and exchanged greetings with others which had come down from Cairo. When New Orleans was fairly in the possession of the military power under Butler, Commodore Farragut sent a portion of his force up the river, for the purpose of reducing such posts on its banks as were held by the Confederates. Baton Rouge, the capital of Louisiana, was captured on the 7th of May without resistance. The Mayor refused to surrender it formally. So Commander Palmer, of the Iroquois, landed, and Baton Rouge. repossessed the National arsenal there. See notice of its capture by the insurgents on page 181, volume I. The large turreted building seen in the above picture, above al<*> the others, is the State-House of Louisiana.

Kineo, and Wissahickon, was to hug the eastern bank, exchanging compliments with Fort St. Philip. Capt. Bell, with the third division--consisting of the Scioto, Iroquois, Pinola, Winona, Itasca, and Kennebec — was to keep the middle of the river, and, disregarding the forts, to attack and vanquish the Rebel fleet in waiting abovelowed his commendable example. All of his division passed the forts essentially uninjured. Capt. Bell's division was less fortunate. The Pinola, Scioto, and Iroquois, ran the gauntlet of the forts unharmed ; but the Itasca, when directly opposite St. Philip, received a volley of balls, one of which pierced her boiler and comps reported as only 30 killed and 119 wounded; the fleet surgeon adding that several vessels had not yet made their official return. The Brooklyn, Pensacola, and Iroquois, had suffered most severely. Gen. Lovell, who had witnessed the combat of our fleet with his forts and flotilla, and its triumph, hastened up to the city on

war Portsmouth,--were to engage the water battery below Fort Jackson, but were not to attempt to pass the forts. The Hartford, Richmond, and Brooklyn, Farragut commanding, were to advance upon Fort Jackson. The Cayuga, Pensacola, Mississippi, Oneida, Varuna, Katahdin, Kineo, and Wissahickon, Capt. Theodorus Bailey commanding, were to proceed along the eastern bank and attack Fort St. Philip as they passed. Captain Bell, commanding the third division, which consisted of the Scioto, Iroquois, Pinola, Winona, Itasca, and Kennebec, was to advance in the middle of the river and push on to attack the enemy's fleet above the forts. The night was still, and a light breeze up river brought with it a haze, which clung to the water. At two o'clock, a red light was run up the Hartford's mast-head, the signal to weigh anchor and advance. From the starting-point to a point in the river above the range of the guns of the forts the distance was five miles. The current was a strong thr

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
of the fire-barges, were all destroyed. So was also the Star. The heroic courage displayed by the officers and men at both forts was deserving of a better success, especially after the fortitude which they constantly exhibited through the long tedium of a protracted bombardment, unsurpassed for its terrible accuracy, constancy, and fury. Thirteen of the enemy's vessels, out of twenty-three, succeeded in getting by, viz.: the Hartford, Pensacola, Richmond, Brooklyn, Mississippi, Oneida, Iroquois, Cayuga, Wissahickon, Sciota, Kineo, Katahdin, and Pinola. In addition to the foregoing, and to Varuna, and such other vessels as were sunk, there were six gunboats and one frigate engaged in this action, besides the mortar-flotilla. Heavy chains were flaked along the sides of the most of these vessels as an iron-proof protection. The extent of the damage which was done to the enemy we have no means of ascertaining. The vessels which passed all came to an anchor at or below quarantine,
