Not able to escape the chase, the Sam., Orr was first abandoned by her crew, and set on fire by them; next, the Lynn Boyd and Appleton were devoted to the names by the owners; next, our gunboat, the Eastport, about half way finished, was souttied in forty feet water.

We arrived in Florence at eight o'clock on Friday night, and found at the landing several companies of Alabama volunteers with a large lot of army stores. Everything was removed up town that night and place on a train and run to Tuseumbia. During the night the Sam. Kirkman and Time came in, having made their escape from the chase. At half-past 8 o'clock on Saturday morning a dispatch was received in Florence from General Johnston, at Bowling Green, commanding a span of the Florence bridge to be out, in order to let all boats escape. The boats that were then in Florence, and could have been saved by that measure, were the Dunher, Jullus Smith, Time and Sam. Kirkman. But, although the Florence bridge serves only as a connecting link between Florence and Tuscumbia, and, consequently, is of the most trifling value to the Southern Confederacy, that same bridge has been built up by Florence money, and is the pride of that city.

Of course it was out of question to then go to work and try to do in two hours the work of half a day, and of course the boats had to be burnt to prevent them falling into the hands of the enemy. At half past 2 o'clock P. M., the gunboats Conectoga and Tylor have in sight. The Julius Smith was out loose and floated down the river a burning drift. The Kinkman and Time were set on fire at the landing. The Dunbar and Alfred Robb had put out and were destroyed below. The Roanoke defeat — additional particulars.
