Secession reports. Major Andrews' report. on board United States ship Minnesota, September 1, 1861. To the Adjutant-General of North Carolina: sir: I beg leave to report that after a bombardment of three hours and twenty minutes, on August 29, 1861, I surrendered to Commodore S. H. Stringham, Flag-officer, and Major-General Benjamin F. Butler, Commanding United States forces, Fort Hatteras, at Hatteras Inlet, North Carolina. In making this report, I desire briefly to relate the circumstances attending the capitulation. I arrived at Fort Hatteras on the evening of the 28th of August in company with Commodore Barron, Flag-officer C. S. navy, in charge of the defences of Virginia and North Carolina, and found that during the day the enemy had attacked the forces under the command of Colonel William F. Martin, as well as Forts Clark and Hatteras, under my command, and after a day of most severe and unceasing fighting, the colonel had succeeded in concentrating all th
and two pieces of artillery. They also informed us that General Rosecrans commanded in person. Our force was only one thousand seven hundred men, and, while we had strong reason to believe that we could maintain our position even against such terrible odds, we did not think it prudent to hazard so much. We had despatched General Wise in the morning for reinforcements, and he had declined to send them for fear of an attack upon him by General Cox. We had also sent couriers for the North Carolina and Georgia regiments to come up, but it was impossible for them to reach us in time to support us. At ten o'clock last night, therefore, our forces proceeded to retire from the position they had so heroically defended during the day, and by light this morning they were all safely and in order across the river, with all their baggage, &c., except some few things which were lost from neglect and want of transportation. I had the misfortune to lose my horse and all my baggage, except
.) This war, sir, is in no sense a sectional one. It is a war of ideas, I grant you; but ideas are universal, not sectional. It is American only in the sense that our liberty is American, embracing within the ample folds of its character, of its promise, of its hopes, all those who, residing with us and denizened among us, are faithful to our cause; and I cannot now fail to call to your recollection that in the recent brilliant exploit of our naval and our military arm off the coast of North Carolina, where a citizen of New York, the venerable and gallant Commodore Stringham, (loud applause,) united his well-earned laurels with those that garlanded the younger brow of a Massachusetts General, Butler. (Applause, and three cheers for Butler.) When would it be possible for me to forget that among the heroes on that day there were none more deserving of their country's honor, and of proud mention on the brightest page of our history, than the colonel and men of the Twentieth New York re

Sir: I have to state, for the information of the Department, that I have taken a valuable prize this morning, now called the Susan Jane, of Nevis, West Indies. This schooner was called the Charles McCees when she cleared at Newbern, (N. C.,) two days before the blockade went into effect on this coast. She took a cargo of spirits of turpentine to the West Indies, and at Charleston, Nevis's Island, obtained an English register, but without a bill of sale or endorsement of any kind on the part of the master or agent, and without any other paper required under English law. She sailed from Nevis to Halifax, (N. S.,) and there took on board an assorted cargo, consisting of blankets, cloth, iron, steel, brogans, axes, &c., all of which were purchased in New York and Boston, as is shown by bills of lading from different leading houses in those cities.
he high and responsible position to which he has been called. Lieut.-Col. Toland, from the part he executed during the entire engagement, demonstrated fully that he has courage to fight and ability to command. During the engagement the peculiar whistling of Minie balls was heard at that part of the column where Cols. Piatt and Toland were commanding. There were found two Mississippi rifles, which were aimed at our worthy commanders; but our colonels were protected, while Col. Davis of North Carolina fell, engaged in sustaining an unholy rebellion. The enemy's loss was thirty killed and fifty wounded. We regret to know that four of our men were killed and eight wounded. The killed are as follows: George Robinson, Company A; home Amelia, Clermont County, Ohio, Joseph Harvey, Company H; Cincinnati, O., Jeremiah Hullinger, Allen County, O., and Jefferson Black, Cir-cleville, Auglaize County, Ohio; both of Company I. Seriously wounded: John Essex, Isaac Z. Bryant, Henry A. Masse
tillery, was received with the wildest enthusiasm. Not one solitary individual in the Legion failed to respond, and the spirits of the corps were raised and maintained at the highest fighting pitch. The provisions and baggage-wagons were withdrawn into safe positions, and the camp on all sides strengthened. In this attitude the Legion remained till about the 20th, when it was strengthened by the arrival of Capt. Romer's artillery company, with one gun, and by that of one Virginia, one North Carolina, and three Georgia companies, which swelled the forces of the Wise Legion to over two thousand men. About this time Gen. Lee arrived in Gen. Floyd's camps at Meadow Bluff, and wrote to Gen. Wise, advising him to fall back if executable, without delay. Before acting on this advice Gen. Wise requested Gen. Lee to inspect the position in person. On the 22d Gen. Lee arrived at Camp Defiance, and, after a careful survey of the ground, ordered Gen. Wise to maintain his position until furt
Doc. 77. North Carolina resolutions, adopted by the Convention in Hyde Co., N. C., Oct. 12, 1861. The following reand without discussion: By a meeting of citizens of North Carolina, held in Hyde County, Saturday, Oct. 12, 1861, Resoccept the Constitution and laws of the Commonwealth of North Carolina, as they were prior to the treasonable and revolutionano obedience to the commands of the Acting Governor of North Carolina, nor to any other public officers, however validly cona Provisional State Government for the loyal people of North Carolina. Statement of grievances. The following is thency of wrong, we do hereby, on behalf of the people of North Carolina, deliberately and solemnly proclaim our independence oaitors alike to the Federal Union and to the people of North Carolina; we disclaim and disavow all participation or acquiesc attitude of open hostility to that Constitution which North Carolina has formally and definitely ratified and accepted as t
the officers in command. The climate seemed their chief objection to this region. It went sore with them to be sent still further north. They wanted to stay where they had made friends — knew their prison and their keepers, and where they were nearer to sympathizers and to home. The casemates were singularly clean. I purposely went unannounced, and found the floors bright and sweet. Every man had his own bed and adequate blankets. In addition to the Government supplies, the State of North Carolina had been permitted to send some comforts to the prisoners, and disinterested beneficence in New York had done something more. I could really find no room to add any thing from the stores of the Sanitary Commission. The hospitals were humanely and tenderly administered by Surgeon Swain and Assistant Surgeon Peters. The sick men looked perfectly comfortable in the regular hospital, and in the temporary hospitals as comfortable as case-mates permitted. Medicines of the best kinds
s relieved two of the blockading squadron on this part of the Virginia coast, and the two vessels relieved are following with us. At sunset we were off the North Carolina coast but out of sight of land. At eight o'clock P. M. the whereabouts of the fleet could be traced by the lamps in the rigging, the horizon all around bei soldiers suffering severely from sea-sickness. Three P. M.--Still heading west; dead wind ahead. By observation at noon we are about sixty miles from the North Carolina coast, and making for land. As we have been running west all day, we must have been out to sea pretty far. Seven of the fleet are now in sight, and others exhe lack of it, adding that the surgeon told him there was nothing else to do but to trust in God. These men formerly were laborers in the turpentine woods of North Carolina, but coming down to Charleston some months ago, were impressed into the rebel service. Both admitted that they had had enough of secession. Lewis gave me so
