In short, on the 4th of March a naval expedition dispersed some partisan bands in the bay of Pungo on the Pamlico River. The role imposed upon the navy was a difficult and dangerous one: it was required to put to sea in all kinds of weather, to navigate along a difficult coast, destitute of lighthouses, frequently occupied by the enemy, and to chase blockade-runners at the risk of striking against sunken reefs.
