The Daily Dispatch: June 6, 1864., [Electronic resource], The Confederate cotton loan in England. (search)
A Yankee steamer captured. Savannah, June 3. --The Yankee steamer Water Witch was boarded and captured, with her entire crew, after a desperate fight, early this morning, by a detachment from the Savannah squadron. Lieut. Pelot, who led our men, was killed, together with the pilot and a few others. The Water Witch was a somewhat distinguished craft in the old navy. She figured some years before the war in the Paraguay expedition in South America. She must be a pretty substantial vessel, and her capture is a brilliant affair. The enemy have been repulsed at Baldwin, Florida.
From North Mississippi. Meridian, June 11. --Lee and Forrest have routed the Yankee column near Baldwin, in North Mississippi, capturing 200 wagons heavily loaded with stores of all descriptions. Forrest made a forced march to meet the enemy. The Yankees are more destructive than ever before in the State. Marmaduke has erected another battery on the Mississippi river at Sunny Side, below Greenville, and has a number of Yankee boats hemmed up. He had destroyed three steamers up to the 7th inst. [another Dispatch.] Mobile, June 11th. --A special dispatch to the Tribune, dated Baldwin, June 11th, says that Forrest made a forced march and threw his command between the Yankee advance and Baldwin. He held them, by severe and gallant fighting, for five hours, when Buford struck them on the flank, driving them four miles. An official note says the enemy were routed, and that we captured over 200 wagons loaded with stores, and many prisoners. The destruction
by shell. The enemy's forces that effected the capture are reported at six thousand strong. No material change in the situation. B. Forrest's victory in North Mississippi--brilliant results. The report of General Forrest's victory over Grierson, in North Mississippi, is fully confirmed. A dispatch from General S. D Lee, received yesterday at the War Department, says that General Forrest attacked the enemy at 10 o'clock on the morning of the 10th instant, six miles west of Baldwin, and fought until 5 P M, gaining a complete victory. The force of the enemy was estimated at 10,000. At the date of the dispatch Gen. Forrest had already driven them ten miles. The following is a copy of a second dispatch received from Gen Lee, giving some of the results of the victory. Baldwin, June 11th Via Mobile, June 12. To Gen. S Corper: The battle of Tishomingo Creek, fought yesterday by Major General Forrest, is one of the most signal victories of the war for the for
but few Yankees on this side of the river, and they occupy ground between Curle's Neck and Deep Bottom. We have at length heard from Sheridan through late Yankee papers. It appears that he crossed the James at Deep Bottom, a few days ago, with two divisions of his cavalry corps, and took position to observe the approach of the rebels. Affairs in Florida. A fight took place recently at Brandy Branch, in Florida. The enemy burnt a bridge over St. Mary's river, six miles above Baldwin, and a fight occurred the same day between the enemy and our troops, under Major G. W. Scott, commanding a battalion. The result is not known. The next day the second Florida cavalry, under Lieutenant-Colonel McCormick, engaged the enemy at Brandy Branch, and at last accounts the fight was still progressing. General Patton Anderson has been relieved from his command in Florida and ordered to the army of Tennessee. General John K. Jackson has assumed command of the Florida department,
