Secretary Welles in as great a state of excitement as his placid temperament would admit of. Give up the ship, Seward, said Mr. Lincoln, we will get another. And Mr. Seward consenting to do so, a telegram was sent to Lieut. Porter as follows: Give the Powhatan up to Capt. Mercer. April 6, 1861. Seward. While the ship was lying off Tompkinsville, Staten Island, waiting for the boat to return that had carried Capt. Mercer on shore, a swift little steamer came alongside, and Lieut. Roe of the Navy delivered Mr. Seward's telegram. Lieut. Porter read it, and decided that there was only one thing for him to do, and that was to disobey it. The artillery for the troops was on board the Powhatan, the steamer Atlantic, with the troops on board, he supposed had sailed at 12 o'clock, and was ten miles ahead of him. His stopping to restore the ship would make the expedition fail, his orders were from the President and he determined to obey them. He telegraphed back: I rece

David G. Farragut (search for this): chapter 10
prepared for such a contingency, as the troops in Charleston were, and after a year's occupation of Pensacola never advanced sufficiently with their fortifications to keep three steam frigates out of their harbor. By the 20th of April Fort Pickens was so well protected that it could bid defiance to all the Confederate forces in that quarter, and so it remained until the end of the war. Pensacola was evacuated by the Confederates about a year afterwards, on a scare — they thinking that Farragut's fleet was on the way to take it. The Confederates knew that they could not hold out twenty minutes against a close naval attack, and therefore wisely decamped in time. Thus the harbor of Pensacola again fell into the hands of the Government, and was of great use to the Gulf blockading squadron as a base for its operations. The above is a strict account of the relief of Fort Pickens; there were no mistakes made, nor any hitches anywhere. In seventeen days after the matter was first br

Capt. Handy's reception on board the flagship by Capt. Pope was not a flattering one. He was immediately ordered baey crossed the bar and anchored safely in deep water. Capt. Pope in his report of this unhappy affair says: My retrer when I leave her? Respectfully, Robert Handy. Capt.
