Middletown (Virginia, United States) (search for this): chapter 31
vessels to be towed in by steamers were hauled into positions astern of their respective steamers. On Monday morning, about eight o'clock, a small sail-boat was seen on the horizon toward the mainland, after which one of the gunboats went immediately. The boat made no effort to escape, and was taken to the flag-ship of Commodore Goldsborough. There were nineteen negroes on board of her, who were taken on board the flag-ship. They are refugees from the mainland, from the neighborhood of Middletown; they bring no important information. It is generally believed that there will be numerous instances of failing courage on the part of the rebels similar to those which have already occurred. The North-Carolinians may be true to the Union, but they are going to make as few sacrifices for either side of the question as they possibly can. They have been compelled to enter the service of Jeff. Davis, but they will require an equal amount of compulsion before they take sides for the Union.

ttacking columns commenced the movement through the woods to gain their respective positions, in doing which the right under Gen. Parke came under the enemy's fire. The Fourth Rhode Island returned the fire with energy. A battery of six twelve-pounder boat-howitzers from the vessels of the navy headed the advancing column in the centre. The battery was commanded by Midshipman Benjamin H. Porter, of New-York, detailed from the frigate Roanoke, assisted by acting master E. P. Meeker, of New-Jersey, acting master's mate Hammond, and Lieuts. Tilson and Hughes of the coast guard, the guns were placed in position at a curve of the road, from which they commanded the enemy's battery. They opened fire, and kept it up briskly until their ammunition gave out. The battery suffered severely in the fight, and at one time was too short-handed to be worked effectively. At this period the brave and patriotic chaplain of the Twenty-fifth Massachusetts, Rev. Mr. James, disregarding the dangers by

The same can be said of Capt. Coles's company, Capt. Dickenson's, the McCulloch Rangers, and other companies — but I am forestalling my letter of to-morrow. And now, Good night. Bohemian. Richmond Enquirer account. While doubt and anxiety pervades the public mind as to the disaster at Fort Donelson, the sad and melancholy affair at Roanoke Island seems temporarily forgotten. We are in possession of facts connected with that fight, which we shall lay before the public for calm and impartial judgment. On the morning of the sixth February, sixty vessels of the enemy appeared to the south of Roanoke Island. All day they were assembling, and early on the morning of the seventh, the signal for their advance was given. The command of Gen. Wise was at Nag's Head, there being no accom

As the boats neared the barges, the officers, amid a perfect shower of shot and shell, came out on the decks, and, swinging their hats, gave hearty cheers of encouragement to the soldiers. I do not remember a moment in the history of the Confederacy — not even when the stars and bars were first hauled upon the capitol at Montgomery amid the enthusiastic shouts of an earnest people, when my heart has so swelled with emotion, and when I have been so willing to sacrifice my life, my all, in the defence of the right and my country. Finding it impossible to proceed further, Col. Anderson ordered the boats to return to the upper end of the island, in order to effect a landing there. Covered by the gunboats, the barges retreated and were soon out of reach of the fire. Running as near in shore as possible, Col. Anderson
