Admiral David D. Porter, The Naval History of the Civil War., Chapter 44: battle of Mobile Bay. (search)
t hope to escape this trying ordeal, when several of the coolest officers calculated that at least six of the ships would be blown up. They never stopped to consider whose fate this would be; all they desired was to grapple with the enemy, and see the Union flag floating over the forts that had been taken from their lawful owners. Soon the word went forth: General order, no. 10. Strip your vessels and prepare for the conflict. Send down all your superfluous spars and rigging. Trice up or remove the whiskers. Put up the splinter nets on the starboard side and barricade the steersmen with sails and hammocks. Lay chains or sand-bags on the deck over the machinery to resist a plunging fire. Hang the sheet chains over the side, or make any other arrangement for security that your ingenuity may suggest. Land your starboard boats or lower them and tow them on the port side, and lower the port boats down to the water's edge. Place a leadsman and the pilot in the port-quar
nt Chas. L. Huntington, Commanding U. S. S. Oneida. Forwarded, though I am confident that more shrapnel and less ten-second shell were fired. Respectfully, your obedient servant, Charles L. Huntington, Lieutenant U. S. Navy. General orders of rear-admiral Farragut, Nos. 10, 11, 12, and 13. U. S. Flag-ship Hartford, off Mobile Bay, July 12, 1864. General order, No. 10: Strip your vessels and prepare for the conflict. Send down all your superfluous spars and rigging. Trice up or remove the whiskers. Put up the splinter-nets on the starboard side, and barricade the wheel and steersmen with sails and hammocks. Lay chains or sand-bags on the deck over the machinery, to resist a plunging fire.

&c., During the night, a portion of the enemy's cavalry fired upon our pickets, and attempted to cut off our train of wagons. Our regiment was ordered to support the pickets, which it did, lying on its arms nearly all night. Some time after midnight our main guard was driven in, and the regiment double-quicked half a mile to meet the enemy. There was a sharp skirmish for a few minutes, and the enemy were routed. We took one prisoner and captured two horses. During this skirmish, Lieutenant Trice, of company G, was badly wounded in the neck. Lieutenant Winston, of company A, was also wounded. The army, or at least one portion of it, had a long and distressing march on the ninth, to the field where, on that evening, was fought the battle of Cedar Creek--distressing on account of the excessive heat, and scarcity of good water. The brigade reached the battle-field about four o'clock. This regiment, which had been on the left during the day, was detached and sent to the right,

Arrests. --Mary Bradley, free mulatto, was arrested yesterday, by officers Bibb and Perrin, of the police, charged with stealing two kitchen stoves belonging to O. A. Streaker, and put in the cage. Shadrach slave of Dr. Sydenham Walks; Robert slave of P. Roberts, and Charles, slave of Dr. Trice were arrested by officer P rin for fighting on Main street and disturbing the public peace.
The raid in Louisa. The Yankee cavalry were at Louisa Court-House on Sunday, and as late as Tuesday last. They visited the houses of all the farmers between that and Frederick Hall, and stole the best horses they could find and carried off all the negroes who evinced any willingness to accompany then. They arrested a Mr. Trice because he had secreted his negroes and refused to tell them where. Prisoners captured during the raid represent that the expedition, when it started, was commanded by General Stoneman and numbered 5,000. They divided into sundry squadrons, and it is possible that some one of the number may still be operating in Louisa or the counties adjacent.
