Capture of three Lake steamers.
--The New Orleans Picayune
is indebted to the courtesy of Gen. Lovell
for the use of the following dispatch:
, Nov. 29.--Captain Buckley
, of the steamer Jeff. Davis
, has just left my wharf, having been turned back on his trip to Mobile
He reports the capture, by the Yankees
, yesterday morning, in the Sound
, of the steamers Grey Cloud
, and Henry Lewis
--the two latter heavily laden with freight for Mobile
H. A. Clinch
, Major Comd
Maj. Gen. Lovell,
C. S. A.
Since receiving the above, we learn from here agents here, John E. Hyde
& Co., that the Grey Cloud
arrived in port (Mobile
) early yesterday morning.
The wrong name has probably been given, by mistake, to one of the captured boats.
Another dispatch has been received by Mr. Geddes
, agent of the mail line, dated Pascagoula
, yesterday, stating that a steamer name not mentioned, was captured by the enemy, in the morning, and in the evening a schooner.
