Captain Giraud now commands the Tennessee. The Times says their loss, including those lost on the Tecumseh, is about two hundred and forty.--They claim to have captured two hundred and fifty prisoners on the Tennessee and Selma alone. Fort Morgan is reported evacuated, which is probably premature, as before the last dispatch-boat left the fleet, it was about being invested by a body of infantry, who marched from Pensacola for that purpose. The Times also reports the steamer Sciota of not more than twelve feet! The iron-clads were closing upon her, and the Hartford and the rest of the fleet were bearing down upon her, when, at 10 A. M., she surrendered. The rest of the rebel fleet, viz: the Morgan and Gaines, succeeded in getting back under the protection of Fort Morgan. This terminated the action of the day. Admiral Buchanan sent me his sword, being himself badly wounded with a compound fracture of the leg, which it is supposed will have to be amputated.
An account from Fort Gaines. --Captain Douglass Vass, paymaster of the army, left Fort Gaines on Saturday night at 10 o'clock in a rowboat for Fort Morgan, and arrived in Mobile Sunday night. He gives the following particulars of the condition of affairs when he left: On Thursday, a Yankee monitor approached the fort onbiads; and in the first shots in reply to the monitor, two of them were dismounted and disabled by the breaking of their carriages. On Friday, the fleet ran by Fort Morgan. Captain Vass had a fine view of the whole scene and the subsequent naval fight. The Tecumseh, the finest monitor in the Yankee navy, went down almost instantl skirmishers to maintain its ground. It was the night after Captain Vass left that General Page passed over to Fort Gaines. Captain Vass is of the opinion that Fort Morgan will hold out as long as its provisions do, and that will be the best part of a year. The Yankee fleet was badly crippled. Nearly every ship is careened o
it from person to party until it was forwarded, when it has since been proven that the dead man was Dennis Murphy, also a very worthy citizen. The person of the deceased was about the same height and size as Love, and the haste and confusion in sending up the body caused the mistake, which has terminated in anything else than a joke. It is also stated that, on the morning of Wednesday, the newspapers containing the announcement of his death and funeral notice was read to Mr. Love at Fort Morgan. He immediately telegraphed to a lady friend, (he not knowing that his wife was in the city), that he was safe and all right. The dispatch was received just before the funeral services were performed, and, owing to the excitement at the time, she, thinking it some trivial matter, laid the dispatch in her work-basket and continued her preparation for the funeral, and did not read it until Love made his appearance at her house at 12 o'clock at night, when the feelings of his wife and all
