under the orders of this department. You will immediately, on the first favorable opportunity after the receipt of this order, afford every facility to Capt. Vodges by boats and other means to enable him to land the troops under his command, it being the wish and intention of the Navy Department to co-operate with the War Department in that object. I am, respectfully yours, Gideon Welles. Secretary of the Navy. These orders were sent to Capt. Adams by a special messenger (Lieut. John L. Worden), who crossed the rebellious States to deliver them. He committed the orders to memory, in case the papers should be lost or he be arrested, but he arrived in safety, and delivered the document to Capt. Adams on the 12th of April. Capt. Vodges' company was immediately landed at Fort Pickens. Thus from the time Capt. Vodges arrived and was placed on board the Brooklyn, and from the time of General Scott's orders to land the troops, dated March 12, 1861, twenty-four days elapsed be

coming in that guise, stated that he had abandoned his ship in obedience to signal, and on being informed that no such signal had been made, he insisted that Captain Winslow of the Water Witch had so read it. When Captain Winslow was asked regarding the matter, he said that he saw no such signal. It was, in fact, simply the poCaptain Winslow was asked regarding the matter, he said that he saw no such signal. It was, in fact, simply the power of imagination acting on Capt. Handy's nerves. He did send to Capt. Winslow asking if that was not the meaning of a signal that was made by the flagship, but the answer he received was No; it is impossible that any such signal can have been made. Get your guns out of your stern ports and defend your ship. It appears thatCapt. Winslow asking if that was not the meaning of a signal that was made by the flagship, but the answer he received was No; it is impossible that any such signal can have been made. Get your guns out of your stern ports and defend your ship. It appears that on leaving his ship Capt. Handy determined that nothing of her should fall into the hands of Commodore Hollins, and he therefore ordered that a slow match should be placed near the magazine, and a train of powder laid, so that by the time he reached the Richmond the old Vincennes, that had performed many a useful cruise, should go

orted, remained under the quarter of the Richmond for some time, apparently trying to give another blow (but in fact partly disabled), and then drifted away. Commodore J. S. Hollins, C. S. N. Had the Richmond stood up the river until daylight the Manassas would have fallen into her power. The Preble opened her port battery on the ram as it passed slowly up the river, but without any effect. After a time the Richmond got underway and went a short distance above the passes, but Acting-Master Wilcox reported that she was getting too close to the starboard shore (where there was water enough to float a three-decker), and the helm was put hard a starboard (instead of proceeding on up, as could easily have been done) and the vessel sheared off into the stream with her broadside bearing up the river; she then drifted down with the current until she neared the head of the passes, when ineffectual attempts were made to get her head up stream (which could easily have been done by lettin
