tive fire upon the boats, while a hand-to-hand fight took place on the deck; but the sailors soon drove the crew of the schooner to the wharf, where they rallied, and being joined by the guard on shore (which had marched to the rescue) they kept up a continuous fire on the boarding party. While this fight was going on, parties of the expedition were engaged in setting fire to the schooner, as it was found to be impossible to move her. An effectual fire was kindled in the cabin by Assistant-Engineer White and a coal-heaver named Patrick Driscoll. The Judah was soon in flames, and as there was no prospect of doing anything more, the boarding party shoved off. By this time a large force of the enemy began to collect in the Navy Yard. and opened fire on the boats, but the officers and men, nothing daunted, returned the fire on the disorganized crowd with two howitzers loaded with grape and canister, firing six rounds before they were out of range of the enemy's sharpshooters.

ed the support of the Navy, but rather the fault of the military historians, who in almost all cases ignored the Navy altogether. Did the limits of this paper permit, and could the numerous cases of support to the Army be specially noted, it would readily be seen that in the Sounds of North Carolina, under Goldsborough, in the rivers, bayous and inlets along the Southern coast under Dupont, on the coast of Louisiana and Texas and the whole length of the Mississippi, Tennessee, Cumberland, White, Arkansas and Red Rivers, a distance of over 3,000 miles, the Navy more or less contributed towards success; and if defeat overtook our Armies at any time while the Navy was at hand, the enemy gained no important or lasting advantage. Our Army always had a line of defense (the naval gun-boats) on which they could fall back, regain its formation and send the enemy retreating in his turn. For the present we must leave the sounds and inlets and follow other adventures. All the sounds of No

Thus equipped, officered and manned, the iron-clad represented at the moment the most powerful fighting ship in the world, and the Federal Government might well feel uneasy at the tidings they received of this monster which threatened to carry destruction all along the Northern coast. The government

an expedition with sufficient stores captured from the enemy to last the command a month. On the morning of April 25, 1863, the Marine Brigade was attacked at a place called Duck River by a Confederate force of seven hundred men and two field-pieces under Colonel Woodward. It seems the enemy mistook the Marine Brigade vessels for transports and were quite unprepared for the reception they encountered. As soon as possible a landing was effected and the enemy pursued for twelve miles. Major White, of the 6th Texas Rangers, was found mortally wounded in a house four miles from the field of battle where eight of the Confederates were killed. The water in the Tennessee River becoming too low for the Marine Brigade steamers to operate, they left the river on the 7th of May, having destroyed great numbers of boats and scows and all the ferry-boats they could find. Tennessee became not only a battle-ground for the contending armies, but her vindictive home-guards brought upon her mo

as long as they are close; but, if they elongate their distance, the fire will concentrate on the vessels nearest them. Should any vessel succeed in passing the second circle of fire, the third will be formed and put into action by the guns of White Point Battery and Battery Glover, with such guns of Forts Johnston and Ripley and Castle Pinckney as will bear. Concentration on the leading vessels will be the object, as before. During the action care will be taken, as far as possible, to pe long-range guns of Fort Sumter and the columbiads of Battery Bee nearest it. It is doubtful whether the enemy will attempt to pass by Folly Channel. If he does, a circle of fire will be formed by the guns of Fort Ripley, Castle Pinckney and White Point Battery. The position of torpedoes will be communicated to commanding officers, and the effort made to drive the enemy's vessels upon them if he is taking other courses. The obstructions will also be designated, and under no circumsta
