The gunboats had suffered severely under the enemy's fire; the garrison of New Madrid was small; and Pope's batteries were in a position which prevented reinforcements from being brought up the river.

The friends of McClellan were not slow to retaliate that Pope was an upstart and braggart, who by trickery and partisan politics, had becoof the enemy's designs. To meet the advance of Pope, and restrain, as far as possible, the atrocitiicinity, he ascertained that the force under Gen. Pope was superiour to his own, but the uncertaint be to reinforce Gen.

The consequence was that he was aroused by the tramp of Federal cavalry close on him, and had just time to throw himself, hatless, on his unbridled horse, leap the fence and fly. He left his hat, coat, and gloves, which his adversaries carried off in triumph; but at Catlett's soon after retorted by capturing General Pope's coat and hat, which was a fair offset.
