Leaving this house, we proceeded through innumerable quagmires, piloted by a contraband, to another house about a mile off, where we found a woman; but no rebel soldiers. It now began to snow pretty hard, and through the storm, after sticking in the mud several times, we arrived at the farm of Mr. Thomas Chapman, who is in the rebel army, and whose father has a comfortable farm a little above Indian Head, Maryland. This was the real object of the expedition. We surrounded the house as we had done the others, and made an examination of the interior; but no obnoxious person or thing was found in it, except a pamphlet with a Richmond imprint, "Skirmish Drill for mounted troops, by authority of John B.

It was planned yesterday, and it was generally supposed that a landing was to be effected at Mr. Otterback's farm; but it turned out otherwise. At about half-past 4 we got, into the boats and started for the Virginia shore in the following order: Lieutenant Commanding Eastman, of the Yankee, in command of the expedition, in his gig with six men, armed with Colt's revolving rifles; the Yankee's cutter, with twelve men, commanded by Master's Mate Lawrence; the Anacostia cutter, with fifteen men, commanded by Master's Mate John Williams; and the Wyandank cutter, with eighteen men, commanded by Master's Mate Sheridan.

. Captain Eastman then ordered the Anacostia's to return to the farm house, and to join him on the beach. He then led the Yankee's, followed by the Wyandank's, along a footpath through the roads, piloted by the contraband, to the beach. We traveled along the beach for some distance up the river, meeting several obstacles in our way. At one place we had to cross a narrow creek, the water of which reached near by to the middle. Some of the men waded through, and by the aid of those on the other side improvised a bridge formed by a single log. All passed over, and a little further up we found Mr. Williams and his command, the rebel picket having disappeared. The Yankee and the Reliance now appeared, and we soon embarked, covered, if not with glory, with a thick coating of mud. The distance we traveled was about twelve miles. We did not get on board our vessels till half past 9 this morning. The contraband who piloted us recognized one of the rebel pickets as Tom Chapman himself.
