The Daily Dispatch: January 9, 1865., [Electronic resource], A Graphic story of the bombardment of Fort Fisher, from an inside witness. (search)
e seemed lovely. And lo! there on the bar is the blockade-runner Banshee. The fleet see her, and two of them start after her, but she is too quick, and proudly she comes in the inlet, while the men crowd the curtains, and cheer after cheer greets her, which are answered with a vim by her crew. During the night another had come in, whose name I have not learned. I wonder how Mr. Admiral Porter felt at that time, with a fleet of upwards of sixty vessels, not able to effectually blockade New inlet. About 12 o'clock the fleet stood out; the ironsides, which had been lying nearer the fort, got up steam and started out, and soon the whole fleet were out some distance, where they anchored. A bright lookout was kept up at night, but nothing of importance occurred. Wednesday, December 28.--Another beautiful morning. Half of the fleet has disappeared; the rest are going off. 5:20 o'clock P. M.--The rest have disappeared; nothing but the usual blockade squadron are now visible.
