were preparing for the attack. Foote, according to his own report, did not consider himself properly prepared for such an adventure, as his force was not sufficiently strong to make an attack on the fort; but at the earnest request of Halleck and Grant, he felt called upon to do what he could, and at 3 P. M. on the 14th, he moved up with his fleet in the following order: iron-clads, St. Louis, (flag-ship), Lieut. Paulding; Carondelet, Corn. Walke; Louisville, Com. Dove; Pittsburg, Lieut. E. Thompson; gun-boats: Taylor, Lieut.-Com. Gwin; Conestoga, Lieut.-Com. Phelps, the two latter in the rear. After a severe fight of an hour and a half, during part of which time the iron-clads were within 400 yards of the fort, the flagship St. Louis, and the iron-clad Louisville, had their wheels disabled and drifted out of action. The fire of the fort, which had during the greater part of the engagement been very rapid and accurate, was now concentrated on the remaining vessels of the fle

ssee and crushed the rebellion there, instead of losing a greater number in the end and prolonging the war for four years. On the 4th of March Flag-officer Foote got under way from Cairo, and proceeded down the river towards Columbus. Besides the flag-ship Benton, there were the Mound City, Commander A. H. Kilty; Louisville, Commander B. M. Dove; Carondelet, Commander H. Walke; Cincinnati, Commander R. N. Stembel; St. Louis, Lieut.-Commanding L. Paulding; Pittsburgh, Lieut.-Commanding E. Thompson; Lexington, Lieut.-Commanding J. W. Shirk, with four transports, each having five mortar-boats in tow; also a magazine boat and a provision boat. The squadron was accompanied by troops under General Buford, in four steamers, half a dozen tugs, and a large number of barges and lighters in tow. As this expedition approached Columbus the Union flag was seen floating from the ramparts. It had been taken possession of two days before by a company of cavalry scouts from Paducah, under Col.

ter baiting his wearied beast, Revere rode on to Portsmouth. In Sullivan's mind the hour had evidently come for decisive action. The story of what followed is briefly told by Eleazer Bennett, the survivor before mentioned: I was working for Major Sullivan, he said, when Micah Davis came up and told me Major Sullivan wanted me to go to Portsmouth, and to get all the men I could to go with him. The men who went, as far as I can remember, were Maj. John Sullivan, Capt. Winborn Adams, Ebenezer Thompson, John Demeritt, Alpheus and Jonathan Chesley, John Spencer, Micah Davis, Isaac and Benjamin Small, of Durham; Ebenezer Sullivan, Captain Langdon, and Thomas Pickering, of Portsmouth; John Griffin, James Underwood, and Alexander Scammell. We took a gondola belonging to Benjamin Mathes, who was too old to go, and went down the river to Portsmouth. It was a clear, cold, moonlight night. We sailed down to the fort at the mouth of Piscataqua Harbor. The water was so shallow that we co

Troops volunteered from the neighboring towns, the object being to capture or drive off a tribe of eighty or a hundred Indians, encamped on the island, with a wigwam, etc., under two chiefs (Capt. David Hill and Capt. Ebenezer Thompson). The first aggressive act of the Indians was to capture a boat about noon, in which two persons, Capt. Abner Stearns and John Niles, were fishing. The Indians espying them, started with two or three canoes, and after an exciting chase,ussell, for Sundries and Refreshment to Surveyors of highways14 33 John Tufts, for Refreshment to Selectmen and Committees4 11 Gardner & Johnson, for Sundries and Refreshment to Surveyors of highways9 63 William Locke & Son, do. do.8 94 Ebenezer Thompson. for Notifications and Warning town meetings11 25 Gershom Swan, for rent of land for Pound3 00 George Prentiss, for Notifications and Warning town meeting3 00 Assessors making Taxes for 181067 50 do. for Stationery2 60 Jason Belknap,
