The Daily Dispatch: May 20, 1864., [Electronic resource], The "Rebel iron Clads" at Wilmington. (search)
The "Rebel iron Clads" at Wilmington. --The Boston Journal gives the following extract from a letter dated off New Inlet, near Wilmington, N. C., May 7th: Four rebel steamers came out last night--one was the iron-clad North Carolina, similar to the Alabama. She was supposed to be a blockade runner, and was chased off shore. At daylight she returned under the guns of the fort. The gunboats Houqua and Nansemond were near and the Niphoa to the northward. One shot from the North Caroline went through the Houqua's smoke stuck. The other three rebel steamers did not come out from under the guns of the fort. No attempt was made to prevent the iron-clad from getting back. Another visit is expected by daylight, when we probably shall have some warm work.
