Captured dispatches show that Fort Wagner was commandedminary, ordered the Weehawken to pass in by a narrow channel winding about Cumming's Point, so as to cut off all communication in that direction. In so doing, the Wthe Weehawken got hard and fast aground in the channel, between Sumter and Cumming's Point, and Sumter could not fire upon her for lack of guns. Sumter was now, in teries. When the Weehawken went ashore in the channel, between Sumter and Cumming's Point, Captain Rowan placed his ship right between the batteries of Moultrie andorks as follows: Sumter 44, Moultrie 21, Battery Bee 6, Fort Beauregard 2, Cumming's Point 2, and Wagner 19; total 94.
