At Donaldsonville, however, an assault by about 1500 Texans was repulsed by about 200 men, including convalescents, under Major J. D. Bullen, 28th Maine, Aided by the gun-boats Princess Royal, Commander M. B. Woolsey, and Winona, Lieutenant-Commander A. W. Weaver. and at La Fourche Crossing Taylor's forces suffered another check at the hands of a detachment under Lieutenant-Colonel Albert Stickney, 47th Massachusetts. Otherwise Taylor, whose operations were conducted with marked skill and vigor, had everything his own way. In New Orleans great was the excitement when it was known that the Confederate forces were on the west bank within a few miles of the city; but fortunately the illness that had deprived Emory's division of its comman

Doc. 24.-attack on the little Ada. Lieut.-Commander Weaver's report. United States steamer Winona, off Suwanee River, S. C., March 25, 1864. Sir: In obedience to your order of the twenty-first instant, directing us to proceed off the Santee River, and to prevent the steamer loading at McClellanville from going to sea, and to use such efforts to capture said steamer as might best meet that end consistent with safety, I have to report that I left Charleston harbor in this vessel, onry, and Acting Master's Mate L. A. Cornthwaite. Acting Ensign William McKendry applied some time since for an appointment, and I think he has well earned promotion. Acting Assistant Surgeon Charles Little, and Acting Second Assistant Engineer W. J. Barrington, also deserve much credit for their coolness and zeal. I am, Sir, respectfully, Your obedient servant, A. W. Weaver, Lieutenant-Commander. Com. Stephen C. Rowan, Com'dg S. A. B. Squadron, Flag-ship New Ironsides, Charleston Harbor:
vied with each other as to who should first drive the vandals from their works. Its gallantry has cost it many noble sacrifices, and we are called upon to mourn the loss of some of our bravest spirits. The fearless Perdie was killed while urging forward his men; the gentle, but gallant Hill, after the works had been taken, and Johnnie Young, a mere boy, not yet eighteen, but a brave and efficient Captain, fell at the head of his company. Captain Kerr, Lieutenants Campbell, Bolick, Emack, Weaver, Bouchelle, Babb, Callais, and Ragin all fell in the gallant discharge of their duties, as also did J. Roarker Lane, of Company E, Fifth Virginia cavalry, who at the time was acting as my volunteer Aid. I cannot speak in too high terms of the behavior of the officers of this brigade. Colonel Barbour, though wounded, was from time to time with his command, giving all the assistance he could. Major Morris, wounded in the foot, left the hospital on horseback and assisted in re-forming his reg
ight putting an end to the conflict. I respectfully refer to the accompanying statement, marked----, showing the regiment, name, and rank of every officer and soldier killed, wounded, and missing; also the character of the wounds. I am much indebted to Colonel Dilworth, First and Third Florida; Colonel Borden, Fourth Florida; Lieutenant-Colonel Ray, Sixtieth North Carolina, and Captain Cone, Forty-seventh Georgia, who led their respective commands with skill and judgment. Also, to Captain Weaver, who succeeded to the command of the Sixtieth North Carolina after its Colonel was disabled. Captain J. P. C. Whitehead, my Assistant Adjutant-General; Lieutenant A. J. Hanson, and Captain J. H. Hall (who was severely wounded in the shoulder), displayed great coolness and daring during the conflict, and to them I am much indebted for valuable services rendered; also, to Lieutenant A. Dunham, Ordnance Officer, for the promptness manifested in the discharge of the duties of his responsibl
