g their session a collision of arms should be avoided, unless an attack should be made or there should be preparations for an attack. In either event the Brooklyn and the other vessels will act promptly. Your right and that of other officers in command at Pensacola freely to communicate with the Government by special messenger, and its right in the same manner to communicate with yourselves and them, will remain intact as the basis of the present instructions. J. Holt, Secretary of War. J. Toucey, Secretary of the Navy. There was no mistaking the purport of this telegram. The Confederates could assemble any number of troops they pleased at Pensacola, erect batteries, and prepare for any contingency,without the commanders of our naval vessels being able to interfere with them; at least, so these instructions were construed by Capt. Adams, the commanding naval officer, and when Gen. Scott (subsequent to Mr. Lincoln's inauguration) sent an order to land the company of troops that

p without the clearest orders from the proper authority — it would be regarded as a hostile act, and could be resisted to the utmost. It would be considered by Gen. Bragg and his officers not only a debarkation, but an act of war; it would be a serious thing to bring on, by any precipitation a collision which may be against the wds us not to reinforce Fort Pickens unless it shall be attacked or threatened; it binds them not to attack it unless we should attempt to reinforce it. I saw Gen. Bragg on the 30th ultimo, who reassured me that the conditions on their part should not be violated. While I cannot take on myself, under such insufficient authorityrotect the fort with her batteries. The military relief that was placed in the fort from the Brooklyn (75 men) was not at all adequate to its defence against Gen. Bragg's forces; not one man was ordered by the Navy Department to be landed from the ships at that time anchored off Pensacola, and this help never would have been af

Artillery, U. S. A., commanding Fort Pickens: In consequence of the assurances received from Mr. Mallory in a tencerted signals! The historian Boynton rather sneers at the manner in which Pickens was relieved by the Powhatan and Atlantic, and reflects on the brilliancy of te. The above account, in relation to the steps taken to relieve Sumter and Pickens, is perfectly correct, and the attempt of any one to detract from the credit onfederate force could have any effect upon it.

This relation would not be complete if Capt. Handy had not had the opportunity to place himselurn her when I leave her? Respectfully, Robert Handy. Capt.
