[496] officers, twenty-five privates, besides the boat, crew, and freight. As fast as the arms were received, they were thrown overboard, for fear an attempt would be made to recapture them, as soon as their small number was ascertained. The boat was immediately taken to the opposite side of the river, where Major Nonning and the balance of the command came aboard, when all parties steamed down the river about five miles. The prisoners were paroled that could not be safely brought off. General Scammon and his two aids were sent on to Richmond.
