We had but one casualty. During the same time, the enemy's gunboats fired between one hundred and two hundred heavy shell at a single picket station on the Potomac, without either hurting a man or driving off the guard. The gallant Major Walker, of the artillery, unlimbered his battery in the open field, and for several hours engaged the Pawnee, Live Yankee, Anacostia, and a tug, at long range, without a single casualty, compelling the boats to retire. They were commanded by a bravequia Creek was shelled for three days last summer by the Potomac flee, one vessel along expending several hundred shell with no other effect than a scratch on one man's hand and the killing of a trooper's horse in the rear of the battery.
