The Minnesota, Susquehanna, and Pawnee immediately reopened fire on the fort, and the attack was kept up until half-past 6, when the whole squadron, excepting the Pawnee and the Harriet Lane, hauled off for the night.

The rumor was confirmed, and Dupont immediately sent forward Commander Drayton, of the Pawnee, with several gunboats, to save the public property there and prevent outrages. He then returned to the Wabash, and, going outside, went down to the main entrance to Fernandina harbor. There he was detained until the next morning. Meanwhile Drayton had sent Lieutenant White, of the Ottawa, to hoist the National flag over Fort Clinch.
