Mr. Fox presented certain plans for the relief of Sumter to the Buchanan administration, but rected Lieut.

loating the railroad bars. And this account is so far confirmed that in December, 1863, a quantity of boom answering to this description was washed away by the winter gales and came down the channel. Some of it was hauled up on the beach of Morris Island. I saw this work in progress one day, and was told that as many as thirty-three of the bars had been secured.

The accounts given do n same device, in Georgetown, and three army transports in the St. John's--Maple Leaf, Harriet Weed, and another. Mr. Gray states they were placed in such numbers about the main entrance and channel, about the time of our operations against Morris Island, that it would have been impossible for any vessel to escape that entered. There were also permanent torpedoes. One species of these consisted of a frame of three or four heavy timbers, parallel to each other and a few feet apart, tied to
