The affair at the mouth of the Mississippi.

The Federal account of Commodore Holland's exploit at the Southwest Pass represent that it was the war steamer Richmond which was struck by the ‘"ram"’ and that ‘"the hole, five inches in diameter, in her hull, did not her, as alleged."’ The Federals deny that they lost a man, either killed, wounded, or missing. The haste with which the vessels endeavored to get over the bar and out to sea is alluded to, and the same authority informs as that were sent from Fort Pickens to that relief. Thus it appears if the Yankee mariners were not hurt, they were very badly frightened.
