the 17th Morgan was making an effort to reach the river to cross at the head of Burlington island, under cover of the night. The Gazette, of the 20th, says: "Morgan finding himself in close quarters, sent out scouts to find a crossing near Burlington, as this was the only ford left him that he could possibly reach. On learning that the ford was guarded by gunboats, and we had a strong force of sharpshooters on the island, Morgan broke up his command and they separated, each squad to take care of itself. One squad broke for the crossing at Burlington, followed by the battery of six pieces which Morgan brought with him. As soon as the rebels approached the river they were opened upon by the gunboats, and one hundred and fifty were killed and drowned. Our cavalry made a dash upon the force in charge of the battery and captured the whole six pieces, and killed a number of rebels. In the skirmish we lost six or seven killed. The rest of this force were repulsed and driven back."
