A spirit of cheerfulness is thus maintained, and no uneasiness or disaffection is allowed to grow among the men.

Commodore Ingraham adopted the suggestion, and, having made all necessary preparations,

The Commodore and Commanders Tucker and Rutledge readily prepared to do so, and took up their position accord Dear Sir,—Upon further reflection, after the discussion yesterday with Captain Tucker and yourself, I think it would be preferable to attack each of the enemy's , would live to see the next morning's sun.

N., was informed of the practice on the part of the enemy of putting out boat pickets at night to observe the movements of our transportation to Morris Island, and it was suggested to Captain Tucker that steps should be taken by the navy to break up these pickets.

As an additional means of defeating any attempt of the enemy, either to assail Sumter oron, at night, as would enable them to sweep the space between Cummings's Point and Fort Johnson and between the latter and Battery Simkins.
