n gained, I hauled down my pennant at one P. M. to-day, to resume my duties as fleet-captain on board the Hartford, having no further casualties to report. Throughout the trying scenes of this dashing exhibition, which is second to none on record, Captain Donaldson, his officers and crew, were conspicuous for their coolness, intrepidity and good conduct. Her guns were well and skillfully handled by their crews, under the direction and careful instruction of Lieutenant H. A. Adams; Midshipman Woodward gallantly working the rifle on the top-gallant forecastle, and Act.-Master Foster the 11-inch pivot gun. Act.-Master McFarland was always at the con, and acquitted himself zealously and handsomely in the discharge of that duty. I am, very respectfully, your obedient servant, H. H. Bell, Captain of the Fleet, Western Gulf Blockading Squadron. Flag-officer D. G. Farragut, Western Gulf Blockading Squadron, off the City of New Orleans. Report of Commander Richard Wainwright, Unite

important town and a small schooner. The loss on board the vessels, fortunately, was small (two killed and ten wounded), but these casualties often repeated ran up in time to a large number. In this warfare not much was to be gained except gunshot wounds. There was no prize-money, but the officers and men of this expedition were spoken of in the highest terms of praise, which cheered them on in the absence of other rewards. Acting-Volunteer-Lieutenant John Macdearmid and Acting-Master Thomas J. Woodward, who commanded the steamers Ceres and Shawsheen on this expedition, were highly spoken of. Acting-Lieutenant R. T. Renshaw, commanding U. S. steamer Louisana, reports that while at Washington, N. C., on the 6th of September, 1862, the enemy attacked that place in force and opened on his vessel with volleys of musketry.
