The Daily Dispatch: January 30, 1861., [Electronic resource], From the
Florida Forts. (search)
From the Florida Forts. The Brooklyn, which left Hampton Roads Friday for Fort Pickens, with two companies U. S. Artillery, is nearly at her destination by this time. Her entrance to the Bay is to be opposed by the allied troops. The Mobile News contains an interesting letter from the Navy-Yard at Warrington, Fla., from which the following is an extract; We of the Mississippi and Alabama Regiment, containing eight Mississippi and two Mobile companies, under Col. Abert, of Mississippi are quartered at the U. S. Marine Hospital, just opposite Fort Pickens, and about a mile and seven-eighths of a mile distant. Fort San Carlos de Barrancas is about half a mile south of our quarter. It is a mile and a half distant from Fort Pickens. Fort McCree is still further south, and is a mile and an eighth of a mile from Fort Pickens.--We are in possession of all the military positions except Fort Pickens. It is on Santa Rosa Island, which is forty miles long, and about one mile wide.
