Colonel Brown, commanding the Union troops, divided his forces also, intending to fight the enemy at the two points threatened, but at this juncture he received peremptory oand scorching sand. The Confederate flotilla, however, was delayed by some of the boats getting aground, and their troops were not landed until after dark. Captain Brown, passing the fleet without being perceived, reached Hatteras light-house after a day of intense suffering and fatigue, and was soon re-enforced by Colonel Hawk

it. It requires more than ordinary zeal to stand the ordeal. Though I may have at times been exacting and fault-finding with them for not conforming with the rules of the service (which requires the education of a life-time to learn) , yet I cannot withhold my applause when I see these men working with such earnest and untiring devotion to their duties while under fire. The officers and crew of the Octorora behaved like veterans; and I am much indebted to that excellent officer, Lieutenant George Brown, for the drill of the crew, and the perfect arrangements made for going into action. On the day the squadron passed up, the mortars were engaged in divisions in firing on the enemy and keeping his guns quiet, and so on up to the 1st of July. Two or three deserters came in, one of them asserting a marvelous story that the ships and mortars had killed and wounded seven hundred persons. No doubt some were killed, but very likely fewer than stated, and only in and about the forts.

n any they had yet planned. Great credit was due the officers and men of the little flotilla, which co-operated so handsomely with General Williams in defeating General Breckenridge. particularly to Lieutenant Roe of the Katahdin and Lieutenant Ransom of the Kineo, who threw the enemy's ranks into confusion by the remarkable accuracy of their fire. The commander of the Arkansas, on this occasion, was Lieutenant H. K. Stevens of the Confederate Navy, her former fearless commander, Lieutenant Brown, having been taken sick at Vicksburg. The events that took place on board the ram, except through vague reports, have never come to light. Notwithstanding the want of success of the Confederates in their attacks on the approaches or outposts to New Orleans, they still kept up a guerilla warfare on the vessels moving up and down the river — a mode of warfare of no avail whatever, and calculated only to bring distress upon the small towns where these roving bands held their headquarte

of the gun-boats, in case the enemy by superior force caused the siege to be raised. As soon as the Confederates had evacuated Haines' Bluff, and all the rafts which blocked the river above had been removed, Lieutenant-Commander Walker, in the DeKalb, was sent up the Yazoo River with a sufficient force to destroy all the works at Yazoo City, which had been used in the construction of their rams. As this naval force approached Yazoo City, the Confederate property was set on fire by Lieutenant Brown,late commander of the Arkansas, and our men had only to add fuel to the flames which were well under way. Three powerful rams were burned: the Mobile, a screw steamer ready for her plating; the Republic, already plated with railroad iron, and a monster steamer on the stocks (310 feet long and 70 beam), intended to be the most powerful vessel of the kind ever built. She was to have had six engines, four side wheels and two propellers. with a speed of sixteen knots. The Confederates
