llerists and a company of engineers, so that in case siege operations should become necessary the men and material for it might be at hand. These troops, under the command of Brevet Brigadier-General H. L. Abbott, were to follow me to Beaufort, North Carolina, and await orders. It was not until this time that I was informed that Fort Fisher was the point against which we were to operate. During the evening of the fifth orders were given for the transports to proceed to sea at four o'clock the next morning, and accompanying these orders were sealed letters, to be opened when off Cape Henry, directing them to rendezvous, in case of separation from the flag-ship, at a point twenty-five miles off Beaufort, North Carolina. The vessels sailed at the appointed hour. During the sixth instant a severe storm arose, which so much impeded our progress that it was not until the morning of the eighth that my own vessel arrived at the rendezvous; all the others excepting the flag-ship of G
o transport steamers Cosmopolitan, Dictator and Delaware, the former making within one week two trips to Hilton Head and Beaufort. It is, perhaps, not out of place to recommend that no general hospital, beyond those already existing, be establisheuestion How many I had already? ran in direct line against the assurance given me. The question, How many there were at Beaufort? I justly thought could better and more accurately be answered from the reports of my successor, the Chief of General H my doubts were certainly not dispelled by the circumstance, that when, by transport General Hunter, six ambulances from Beaufort had arrived, they were stripped and empty, and minus their horses — an oversight which, to remedy, the transport had to return to Beaufort, with my respectful caution: be sure to not forget the harness. Late in the evening the transport re-arrived at the Hilton Head wharf, and I ascertained then the neglect, that neither driver nor forage had come along; that the hor
the naval fleet would sail on the thirteenth, but would be obliged to put into Beaufort to take on board ammunition for the monitors. See General Terry's Report, phe smoothest sea. On the evening of the eighteenth Admiral Porter came from Beaufort to the place of rendezvous. That evening the sea became rough, and on Monday, communicated to me by letter, I directed the transport fleet to rendezvous at Beaufort. This was a matter of necessity, because the transport fleet, being coaled anit blew a gale. I was occupied in coaling and watering the transport fleet at Beaufort. The Baltic, having a large supply of coal, was enabled to remain at the plerate with him. On the twenty-third I sent Captain Clark, of my staff, from Beaufort on the fast-sailing armed steamer Chamberlain, to Admiral Porter to inform him my province even to suggest blame to the navy for their delay of four days at Beaufort. I know none of the reasons which do or do not justify it. It is to be presum
Doc. 100. destruction of the Pevensey. naval Station, Beaufort, N. C., June 9, 1864. Yesterday morning, at a little past six o'clock, this quiet town and harbor was thrown into excitement by the appearance of black smoke in the offing. Now, in gun-boat parlance, black smoke is synonymous with English neutrality--King Cotton, or if you please, a blockade-runner. In a moment's space of time black smoke was discovered to be a large side-wheel steamer, chased by the supply steamer Newbern, and immediately the steamer Cherokee and the steam tug Lilac left the harbor to assist in the chase, and endeavor to keep her from the beach, to which she was making under a full head of steam; but all attempts to capture her were futile, and she was soon piled upon the sand. About fifteen minutes after striking she blew up, the shock of the explosion seriously straining her hull, and causing her to fill in short order. Her name was Pevensey, formerly called the Kangaroo. She was laden w
Doc. 105. Cushing's reconnoissance. Beaufort, N. C., June 29, 1864. One of the most daring reconnoissances made during the war has just been successfully achieved by Captain Cushing, of the gunboat Monticello. On the night of the twenty-fourth instant the captain took a first cutter, with fifteen men and two officers (Acting Ensign Jones and Acting Master's Mate Howard), and succeeded in passing the forts of the west bar at Wilmington, and started up the Cape Fear river. After a narrow escape of being run over by one of the rebel steamers plying the river, he passed the second line of batteries and continued his course until Old Brunswick was reached, where the rebels have a heavy battery, when he was halted and fired upon, but succeeded in passing unscathed, by feigning to pass down the river and crossing to the friendly cover of the oppsite bank. He then continued his course up the river. By this artifice the rebels were deceived, and signalized to the forts to interc
