These works — on both sides of the river — mounted twenty heavy guns, and were prepared to receive the approaching vessels, coming up in two columns at their best speed. The vessels that had passed the forts below, gave short account of these batteries, though the work was very sharp while it lasted, especially on account of the time during which the slow ships were held under a raking fire. From this point resistance ceased, and about noon on the 25th of April, the fleet anchored off New Orleans. which the retreat of General Lovell left defenseless and in the hands of the civil authorities. Lieut. Com. John Guest was sent at noon of the 25th to Fort Jackson under a flag of truce, to call upon the Confederate commander, in view of the uselessness of further bloodshed, to surrender the forts and the remnants of the Confederate Navy at the place, as Farragut had passed up the river with little loss, and was probably then in New Orleans.

Lieutenant Albert Kautz, first division; Master John C. Watson, second division; Acting-Master Daniel C. Murphy, third division; Acting-Master Ezra L. Goodwin, powder division. The marine guard, under charge of Captain John L. Broome, had charge of two broadside guns, and fought them well, thus sustaining the reputation of that distinguished corps. In making this report it gives me an opportunity to supply an omission inadvertently made in my last report of the battle of the 24th and 25th of April; it is in speaking of the medical department, which, under its head, Fleet Surgeon Foltz, was administered admirably, both in this and the former battles.
