Naval Ordnance works, Richmond, Va., March 23, 1864. My Dear Sir: * * * There is but little navy news afloat. Captain Page was selected, I hear, by the President to command all the heavy batteries at Mobile. You know that he has been made a Brigadier-General, I suppose. S. S. Lee gives up Drewry's Bluff to Major Territt, of the Marines, and takes Page's place at Charlotte. I hear he does not fancy it much. The sailors from the bluff will man the iron-clad Fredericksburg, commanded by Frank Shepperd. She is now fitting out at Rocketts. Wood will probably see service in her, with other vessels under his command. His last affair at New Berne was the feature in the attack, and though not attended with all the results he had cause to expect, still it was a gallant act, well planned and

the skilful and rapid manipulation of his troops, meeting and beating him in every battle, thereby causing General Grant to be more prudent in the management of his forces and to settle down to a siege. But let us resume the march. After it became known that Grant had crossed the larger part of his army to the south side of the James the Crenshaw Battery received orders to move, as did the whole of Pegram's battalion, and we were soon on the road again. After crossing the James near Drewry's Bluff on pontoons, we continued the march until we came to within two or three miles of Petersburg, where we occupied a part of the works, which extended from the Howlett House far to the south of Petersburg. And now as the theatre of war was for the most part transferred to the southside of the James, let us look at that city, as I then saw it.
