The sharpshooters, detailed from the same command, kept up a galling fire on the enemy during the passage of the vessels on the evening of the fifteenth, and drove them from the tops.

and for some time a shower of bomb-shells was rained upon our batteries that severely tried the nerve and courage of both officers and men, still the damage was quickly repaired, and the men held their places at the guns. At daylight, on the twenty-eighth, the enemy recommenced with the same fury, and it was soon perceived that the entire gunboat fleet was in motion, moving rapidly up in front of the batteries and city, and it became apparent that the decisive struggle was at hand.

At the time of arriving, the state of preparation for defence was as follows: Of the ten batteries that have been in use, three were mostly completed, and the fourth begun. The armed troops present consisted of the remnant of t
close and serious attacks, such as occurred before the termination of the bombardment; besides, the enemy were thus kept ignorant of our real strength as well as the effect of their own shot. It was not long before they apparently came to the conclusion that no impression could be made on our works by their gunboats, nor the erection of new batteries prevented whenever attempted; and the remaining six batteries, of the ten first mentioned, were constructed under their eyes. From the twentieth of May to the middle of June the firing was kept up at intervals, and more or less heavy the latter part of the time. directed mainly at the town, and at localities where they apparently thought troops were encamped.
