only give the position as it now stands; At the outlet of Mobile bay into the Gulf there are two channels running either side of Dauphin island — that on the right passing very close to Fort Gaines, and that on the left passing not so close to Fort Morgan. While the Yankee fleet passed. Fort Gaines successfully, yet before operations against Mobile could have been commenced, it would have been necessary, to have reduced that work, which is a very strong one, and which was provisioned for six as its guns could throw, and could not have been taken by a land assault.

is painfully humiliating to announce the shameful surrender of Fort Gaines, at half- past 9, o'clock this morning, by Colonel Charles Anderson, of the Twenty-first Alabama regiment. This powerful work was provisioned for six months and had a garrison of six hundred men. He communicated with the enemy's fleet by flag of truce without the sanction of General Page. General Page enquired by signal what his purpose was, but received no answer. His attention was attracted by signal guns. Page repeatedly telegraphed "hold on to year fort."

He left peremptory orders for Anderson, on his return, not to surrender the fort, and relieved him of his command. Fort Morgan signaled this morning, but no answer was received except the hoisting of the Yankee flag over the ramparts of Fort Gaines. Anderson's conduct is officially pronounced inexplicable and shameful.
