the cavalry, were one commissioned officer and five enlisted men wounded. Five cavalrymen were captured from us, including two of the wounded, and two of the enemy's men were captured and retained by us. Four citizens of suspicious antecedents, were also taken and brought away. The enemy followed us closely on our return, and twice charged our rear-guard, but were repulsed. It is not supposed that their loss was equal to ours. My prisoners I have turned over to the Provost-Marshal at Point Lookout, and my force is now on its way to the White House, as ordered. In closing my report, I desire to call to the notice of the Lieutenant-General commanding, the services of Captain James, Assistant Quartermaster at Fortress Monroe, who rendered me important aid with the utmost alacrity. I enclose the report of Captain Harris, of the Mosswood, who was sent to patrol the Rappahannock during our operations on the north side of the river. Very respectfully, your obedient servant, S. H.

Captain: In compliance with orders received from General Roberts, on the eleventh instant, I proceeded up the Rappahannock river as far as Urbanna, where I awaited the arrival of the other gunboats. During the night I picked up a darkey, who informed me that the enemy had three pieces of artillery near Lowry's Point. On the morning of the twelfth instant, I was signalled by the steamer Morse, that she had been attacked by a shore battery. I immediately got under way, steamed up the river, found the Morse out of range of the battery, but continuing a heavy fire with her 100-pounder Parrott. When within three

t, Va., [Md.,] March 13, 1865. General: In my report of March ninth, I had the honor to state my intention of starting the next morning for the Potomac and the vicinity of Coan river. The Northerner, being too unwieldy for the service required, was exchanged for the Massachusetts and the Pioneer. This change, together with the coaling, delayed me until the eleventh instant, at which date the expedition again left Fortress Monroe at eight A. M. We reached Piney Point, just above the St. Mary's river, at dusk, and waited there for the slower boats to close up. It was my intention to land at Machodoc bay, and march first on the village of Montrose, but there being no place where troops could be landed rapidly, the plan was changed, and at five A. M. the next day we sailed up the Yocomico river, and landed at Kinsale. The first boat load of cavalry was sent out at once, and met the rebel cavalry pickets a mile from the village. The second boat load of cavalry were hurried out, and a

d boat load of cavalry were hurried out, and at about ten o'clock were followed by the infantry and ambulances. The route agreed upon was through a place called the Hague, and thence to Warsaw. The rebel cavalry, under Lieutenant-Colonel Chapman, of Mosby's command, were constantly hovering about our column, and being splendidly mounted, and familiar with the roads, were able to avoid a collision with anything more than our advance and rear guard. About a mile from the Hague they made a slight stand, but were driven by our charge, and chased into the village. At every cross-roads the enemy would separate, each squad taking a different path, until our cavy three men. These were captured and sent back toward the main column, but were retaken, together with a portion of their guard, on the way. Nothing was found at the Hague of any value. At the point where the skirmish commenced, there was a blacksmith's shop and quite an extensive wheelwright's establishment. These, with a granar
