Osmond Peters, on the opposite side of the river, nobly stood up to their duty in spite of infirmities and regardless of exposure; indeed there seemed to be on hand just the men wanted for the occasion. On the 20th of April, the day before the great Navy-Yard fire, Lieut. Jas. F. Milligan, a removed officer, took command of the Empire, two days after she was steaming off to Richmond, with the first guns forwarded from the Navy-Yard, and a few days later she again passed
