The transports Adelaide and George Peabody towing schooners with surf-boats on them, and the Monticello and Pawnee surf-boats only. Major-General Butler took passage in this ship; the transports having parts of two regiments, and one company of regulars, under the command of Colonels Max Weber and Hawkins, and Captain Larnard, United States army. At — P. M., passed Cape Henry, and discharged pilot; light airs from south and east, with a ground swell. Tuesday, 27th--Light airs from south and east, with a heavy ground swell. At half-past 9, A.

Propeller Daylight, Blockading off Cape Henry, Oct. 10, 1861. yesterday afternoon, a few minutes before four o'clock, it was reported to me that a battery on shore in Lynn Haven Bay had opened fire on the American ship John Clarke, of Baltimore, which had come in and anchored during the gale, and dragged within range of the enemy's guns, distant about a mile and a half. I got under way and stood down to her assistance, and on getting within range opened fire, and a spirited engagement was kept up on both sides for about forty minutes, when the enemy ceased firing, their battery of four or five guns being silenced so that, although we remained within range for an hour and a half after the firing had ceased, assisting the ship to get under way, not a shot was fired by them. Our shots generally were well directed, and must have done execution. Fortunately, none of their shots hit us, but they came quite
