The commander of these should be ordered to co-operate with me, by affording me protection and destroying their naval preparations near the bar, leaving to me, as the author of the plan, the actual operations of relief. I suggest that the Pawnee be immediately sent to the Delaware Breakwater to await orders, the Harriet Lane to be ready for sea, and some arrangement entered into by which the requisite steamer and tugs should be engaged—at least, so far as not to excite suspicion. I shoulapture us outside by coup de main. I could quietly engage one, and have her ready to start on twenty-four hours notice, without exciting suspicion. I shall leave for New York at 3 P. M., and any communication will find me at Judge Blair's. If the Pawnee's pivot-gun is landed, it should certainly be remounted. Very respectfully, etc., G. V. Fox. General Scott to Captain Fox.

d river lines of communication to Selma and Montgomery, but also, from a position along the Mobile and Ohio Railroad, the enemy would expose his railroad lines of communication, already referred to, if he should attempt to move on to Memphis. But if he should march in force on the latter place, to change his lines of communication, Forts Pillow and Randolph, on the Mississippi River, would have to be abandoned. This would give the enemy command of the Mississippi River from Vicksburg to the Ohio and Missouri rivers, and enable him to concentrate a large force against Vicksburg. The fall of the latter place would endanger our line of communication thence to Meridian and Selma (the latter portion now nearly completed), and the armies of the Mississippi and of the West would soon be compelled to abandon the whole State of Mississippi and another large portion of Alabama, to take refuge behind the Alabama River. It might be asked: Why not retreat along the Memphis and Charleston Rail

There were but two of them, and they were put in position side by side in the same battery, and within a stone's-throw of the corporate limits of the little town of Eastport, and this was the only battery we had.
