with a disabled engine. * * * In about half an hour after the firing had begun (the upper fleet engaging the land batteries) the large and formidable iron-clad ram, the Essex emerged from the smoke above and made directly for the Arkansas. Commander Brown received the attack at anchor, with a crew sufficient to work two guns, but with the aid of his officers he was able to man all the guns which could be brought to bear. When the muzzles of the guns were nearly touching each other, the broadw close to us, evidently determined to ram us. The guns had been fired and were now empty and inboard. Somehow we got them loaded and run out; and by the time she commenced to round to, the columbiads were ready, as also the broadside guns. Captain Brown adopted the plan of turning his head to her also, and thus received her blow glancing.

Brown now obtained leave of absence, and was soon after taken down with fever at Grenada, Miss. While thus disabled, he learned from his executive office, Lieut. H. K. Stevens, left in command, that peremptory orders had been sent him by Gen. Van Dorn to co-operate with Gen. Breckinridge in the attack on Baton Rouge. Commander Brown sent positive orders to Lieut. Stevens not to move his vessel until he could join it, as the Arkansas was not ready for action. * * Lieut. Stevens referred the matter for his decision to Capt.nfederate States navy in the West. Ignorant or regardless of the condition of the Arkansas, Capt. Lynch ordered Lieut. Stevens to disobey the instructions of commander Brown and comply with the request of Van Dorn. It this way the Arkansas was placed under the command of Lieut. Stevens, with orders to run 300 miles against time.
