[465] miles up this Bear Creek, where we came to a house; found two men in it, with a double-barrelled shot-gun loaded to the muzzle; also several very large salt-pans, which we set on fire. The salt we carried in carts to the creek and throw it overboard We then returned to the gunboats and returned to Fort Macon, and were landed the next morning by eight o'clock. This is the first scout our commander (Colonel Jourdan) has done on his own hook; but I can assure you, since he has met with such success, it will not be the last one. Both Colonel Jourdan and his command are very well pleased with the success of the expedition. There are a great many rumors of another expedition very soon. Let it come; we are always ready.
