The expedition consisted of the Commodore Perry, Lieut. C. W. Flusser; the Ceres. Lieut. John McDiarmid; and the Shawsheen, Acting-Master T. T. Woodward, with a detachment of about forty soldiers in addition to their regular crews. The first of the places to be examined was the town of Hamilton on the Roanoke River. The banks of this river were high in places and afforded many commanding positions from which an enemy upon the water could be attacked with little danger to the attacking party. The Confederates did not fail to make the most of their opportunities, and the gun-boats had not proceeded far on their way before the

These channels were so narrow that only two vessels could proceed abreast, and in this order they continued until reaching the wider and deeper waters of Croatan Sound.
