ed to place them in a deep tin case provided for the purpose, when Mr. Ely was directed to draw one out, the officer whose name it should bear to be held as hostage for William Smith, convicted of piracy. The lot fell upon Colonel Corcoran, then a prisoner in Castle Pinckney, in Charleston harbor. The names of the other thirteen hostages were drawn in the same way. They were: Colonels Lee, Wilcox, Cogswell, Wood, and Woodruff; Lieutenant-Colonels Bowman and Neff; Majors Potter, Revere, and Vogdes; and Captains Rockwood, Bowman, and Keffer.--Journal of Alfred Ely, Nov. 10, 3861, pages $10 to 216, inclusive. The latter, as we have observed, were, for the sake of humanity, treated as prisoners of war, and in due time the hostages were exchanged.

They were met in their retreat by two companies, under Major Vogdes, sent out of the fort by Colonel Harvey Brown, its commander, to aid them. Two other companies, under Major Arnold, immediately followed, and the combined force returned and charged upon the Confederates. The latter had already plundered ands, several volleys of musketry were poured upon them, and one of the launches, loaded with men, was so riddled by bullets that it sank. In this affair the Nationals lost, in killed, wounded, and prisoners, sixty-four men. Among the latter was Major Vogdes. The Confederates lost about one hundred and fifty, Report of Colonel Harvey Brown to Adjutant-General E. D. Townsend, October 11th, 1861; also of Colonel Wm.

Gillmore found Folly Island well occupied by National troops under General Vogdes, who had employed them in preparations for future work. Through its almost impenetrable jungles Folly Island is about seven miles in length, and not over of strong batteries on the northern end of Folly Island, to cover the passage of his troops over Light-House inlet. These, were begun under the direction of General Vogdes, on the 15th of June, 1863. and were prosecuted with vigor under a heavy fire, frequently, from the Confederate guns on Morris Island. The Nationals were couse inlet. The movement was unperceived by the Confederate sentinels, and the occupants of Morris Island were astounded when at dawn, the next morning, July 10. Vogdes's unsuspected batteries opened a tremendous cannonade, and Dahlgren's monitors, Weehawken, Catskill, Montauk, and Nahant, at the same time opened a cross fire, an

Vogdes firmly posted, alert and vigilant, and gradually, circumspectly strengthened him without attracting hostile observation till he had 47 guns in battery within sp's division, 4,000 strong, and Gen. Strong's brigade of 2,500, were quietly transferred to Folly island, under the cover of darkness, and kept out of sight, while Vogdes made a great parade of strengthening his defenses as though he apprehended an attack. At length, all being ready, Gen. Terry, with 3,800 men, was conveyed J of July 9. on small boats in Folly river, and rowed stealthily to the junction of Lighthouse inlet; where they were halted, behind a screen of marsh-grass, while Vogdes's batteries on the north end of Folly island broke, at daylight, July 10. the slumbers of the unsuspecting foe.

exchange. Lieut. Worden left Montgomery on the 14th, having given his parole not to divulge any thing which he might learn while in transit, to the disadvantage of the rebel Government. This parole was of no disadvantage to the National Government, from the fact that he saw nothing. He arrived at Richmond on Sunday evening, November 17th, having been detained one day by failure to connect, and stopped at the Exchange Hotel, which was filled with army officers. He obtained an interview with the Adjutant-General, and Acting Secretary of War Benjamin, and left early on Monday morning for Norfolk, and the following day went on board the frigate Minnesota, at Hampton Roads. After the fight at Santa Rosa Island, Major Vogdes and twenty-two of Wilson's men were confined in jail with him, from whom he learned further of the actual condition of Fort Pickens. He has no doubt that Fort Pickens can easily reduce the batteries and fortifications in the vicinity, as well as Fort McRae.
t, Commanding armies of the U. S.: General:--On Monday evening I received a note from General Gillmore, by hand of General Vogdes, who arrived here with two regiments of troops from Hilton Head. The letter contained the following extracts, which are all that are specially material as to the time when General Gillmore will probably be here :-- Brigadier-General Vogdes bears this letter, and is directed to report to you to take command of the Tenth Corps as it arrives from time to time. Brncentrating my scattered forces, but it could not be avoided. From the tone of his letter and my conversation with General Vogdes, I am of opinion that he will not be able to be here, or to even get his troops here, until at least ten days from today. I have directed those troops to assemble at Gloucester Point, opposite Yorktown, under the immediate command of General Vogdes, assigning General Smith to the Camp of Instruction at Yorktown, and the command of the troops on both sides of the r
