, October 5, 1861. To the Editor of the Leader: sir: No one could be more willing than I am to concede to the journalist the right to comment upon the current events of the day, or on the conduct of public men, in so far as that conduct has any bearing upon public interests; but there are limits within which even the members of the privileged fourth estate ought to confine themselves. That you have overstepped those limits I shall endeavor to show. On the arrival of the Leader of the 3d inst. at Windsor, my attention was directed to its leading article. headed Violation of the neutrality laws. In that article you indulge in a strain far more likely to injure yourself in the estimation of any one whose good opinion is worth caring for, than to damage me, even if your statements were all true, instead of being, as most of them are, as false as they are malicious. In the first place, sir, permit me to ask, What do you know about my private circumstances, or what right have you
ns. I can do no more, for want of time, than merely enumerate events. We ran the blockade of Passe l'outre (by the Brooklyn) on the 30th of June, the Brooklyn giving us chase. On the morning of the 3d I doubled Cape Antonio, the western extremity of Cuba, and on the same day captured off the Isle of Pines the American ship Golden Rocket, belonging to parties in Bangor, Maine. She was a fine ship of 600 tons, and worth between $30,000 and $40,000. I boarded her. On the next day, the 4th, I captured the brigantines Cuba and Machias, both of Maine also. They were laden with sugars. I sent them to Cienfuegos, Cuba. On the 5th day of July, I captured the brigs Ben. Dunning and Albert Adams, owned in New York and Massachusetts. They were laden with sugar. I sent them to Cienfuegos. On the next day, the 6th, I captured the barks West Wind and Louisa Kilham, and the brig Naiad, all owned in New York, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts, and laden with sugar. I sent these als
he cargo of the Fanny, and to have destroyed the vessel, had we received assistance from the Indianians on shore. I cannot but feel that it was to their neglect to assist us that the loss of the Fanny may be attributed. Nor do I think it was policy in Capt. Rowan or Col. Hawkins to have sent the Fanny to Chicomicomico without an escort or sufficient guard on board, when she had so valuable a cargo. Upon my return to Hatteras Inlet, I made report of the loss to Capt. Rowan, and on Friday, 4th instant, went up to Hampton Roads with my crew. Here I reported to Gen. Mansfield, and detailed the circumstances of the capture of the Fanny. He acquitted me from blame, and furnished me and my crew with passes to Philadelphia. It is true I am not nor have I been recognized by the Navy Department as commander of the Fanny. She has never been regularly commissioned as a gunboat, although doing nearly three months active and successful duty as such. Neither have my crew been recognized
t. Official report of Captain Lardner. the following are the official reports of the engagement near Hatteras Inlet: United States steam frigate Susquehanna, off Hatteras Inlet, October 6, 1861. sir: Late in the afternoon of the 4th instant, I received information that the enemy had landed in large force at Chicamacomico and Kine Keet, and that the Indiana regiment, posted there, was in full retreat before them. Also, that our three tugs in the inlet were aground or disabled. Teutenant D. L. Braine, Commanding United States steamer Monticello. To Captain J. L. Lardner, Commanding U. S. steamer Susquehanna, off Cape Hatteras, N. C. New York Herald narrative. Hatteras Inlet, October 7. On the morning of the 4th inst., about daylight, the lookouts of Colonel Brown's encampment, consisting of about eight hundred men of the Twentieth Indiana regiment, located some thirty miles above Fort Hatteras, reported six rebel steamers, with schooners and flat-boats in t
ut the day before, and I was therefore disappointed, and obliged to rely upon the vigilance of the officers and crew of this ship, and proceeded the next morning to the north side of the Island of Cuba, communicated with the Sagua la Grande on the 4th, hoping to receive a telegraphic communication from Mr. Shufelt, our Consul-General, giving me the time of the departure of the steamer. In this also I was disappointed, and ran to the eastward some ninety miles, where the old Bahama Channel costeamer, and in the event of these four persons being on board, to make them prisoners. We filled up with coal in great haste, took in provisions, (as a part of our daily rations for the crew were exhausted,) and left Havana on the 2d inst. On the 4th, in the morning, a steam gunboat being in sight from the masthead, we all were in hopes that it would prove to be the Theodora, and orders were given to beat to quarters. Scarcely four minutes elapsed, and the San Jacinto was ready to receive her
than clear himself at the expense of the cause in which we were all engaged. The time had arrived when the matter could, without injury to the service, be inquired into; and he was determined that it should be done, and that before long all the documents referred to should be published and spread before the American people, unless those whose duty it was to do so should in the mean time do him justice. He would state a few facts. On the 3d of June he took command at Chambersburg. On the 4th he was informed by the General-in-Chief that he considered the addition to his force of a battery of artillery and some regular infantry indispensable. On the 8th of June, a letter of instructions was sent him, in which he was told that there must be no reverse; a check or a drawn battle would be a victory to the enemy, filling his heart with joy, his ranks with men, and his magazines with voluntary contributions; and, therefore, to take his measures circumspectly, and attempt nothing withou
Doc. 221. Ashepoo River expedition. Commander Drayton's report. United States steamer Pawnee, Port Royal harbor, Dec. 9, 1861. sir: In obedience to your order of the 4th instant, I proceeded to sea at daylight of the 5th, accompanied by the gunboat Unadilla, Lieutenant-Commanding N. Collins; steamer Isaac Smith, Lieutenant-Commanding Nicholson, and coast survey steamer Vixen, Captain Boutelle, and reached anchorage off the fort on Otter Island, St. Helena Sound, at mid-day. In the course of the afternoon, some negroes coming on board, and reporting that there was a body of soldiers at the entrance of Mosquito Creek, a place up Ashepoo, where the inland route to Charleston commences, I proceeded as far as that place, when night coming on, obliged me to return. I saw, however, no signs of the presence of white people, excepting that some buildings, which I discovered next day to have been on Hutchinson's Island, were burning. On the morning of the 6th, the United State
her provisions, and all of her treasure and her officers and crew, the torch was applied to her, and in a few minutes the fire began to spread, and the flames leaped wild and high. First the fire ascended the mizzenmast and ran along the deck to the main, and then to the foremast. I have seen many beautiful sights, but this burning vessel was the most sublimely grand sight my eyes ever witnessed. On the following day, the once-glorious Fourth of July, we captured two brigantines; on the 5th, two more of the same sort; on the 6th, two barks and a brig — making eight captures, including the one destroyed. As the Sumter had only one hundred and six men in all, after she had put her prize crews on board, her own crew was considerably diminished, so that it was absolutely necessary for her to put into some port in order to dispose of the aforesaid captured vessels. Accordingly, the vessel's prow was turned in the direction of Cienfuegos, Island of Cuba, where we arrived on the 6t
Doc. 91. recapture of Lexington, Mo. Major White's official statement. Camp look-out, Quincy, Mo., Oct., 24, 1861. Major-General Fremont: on the 5th instant I received your orders to organize a scouting cavalry squadron for special service, and organized one by making the following detail :--Company L, First Missouri Cavalry, Captain Charles Fairbanks, sixty-five men; Company C, First Missouri Cavalry, Captain P. Kehoe, sixty-five men; the Irish dragoons, (Independent,) fifty-one men. We left Jefferson City on the 5th instant, and after a severe march reached Georgetown, our men in good condition, on the afternoon of the 8th. Our horses being all unshod and unfit for travel, we procured a few shoes and a quantity of old iron, called for blacksmiths from our ranks, took possession of two unoccupied blacksmith shops, and in five days shod our horses and mules, two hundred and thirty-two in number. Our scanty supply of ammunition having been destroyed by the rain, and
British packet. There being another passage through the New Bahama Channels, Capt. Wilkes' plan was, that a steamer should cruise there, while the San Jacinto was cruising in the Old Bahamas, so that the mail packet could not escape our vigilance; but the Powhatan having left for Key West the day before, and no steamer except the Huntsville (and she caulking) being in port, our captain, nothing daunted, fully resolved to undertake the boldly-conceived enterprise alone. On the morning of the 5th, we left Key West, and running to the north side of the Island of Cuba, touched at Sagua la Grande, for the purpose of telegraphing to our Consul-General at Havana, Mr. Schufelt, to inform us of the time of the British mail steamer's departure from Havana, but received no information. From thence we steered for the Old Bahama Channel, about twenty miles from Havana, and about ten from the lighthouse of Paredon del Grande. The channel contracts there to the width of fifteen miles, and we cou
