I present my acknowledgments to Flag-Officer Pinkney, Confederate States navy, who was present during the action, for the welcome and efficient aid sent to Colonel Lamb, the detachment under Lieutenant Roby, which manned the two Brooke guns, and the company of marines, under Captain Van Benthuysen, which reinforced the garrison. Lieutenant Chapman, Confederate States navy, commanding battery Buchanan, by his skillful gunnery, saved us on our right from a movement of the enemy which, unless checked, might have resulted in a successful passage.

The late operations at Wilmington — the official reports. Naval Commandant's office,Wilmington, North Carolina,January 4, 1865. Hon. S. R. Mallory, Secretary of the Navy: Sir: The report of Lieutenant Chapman, of the incidents of the 24th and 25th ultimo, is so comprehensive as to render any further report unnecessary. The commendation which the officer serving at the battery and in the fort received from Lieutenant Chapman is merited. I deem it proper, though, to present to the notices of the Department the zeal manifested on the occasion of the attack by Lieutenants Armstrong and Dornin. These officers were here on the way to Charleston when the enemy appeared off the fort. They immediately volunteered to serve wherever they could be useful, and went with me to battery Buchanan. On the commencement of the bombardment they asked to be permitted to go to Lieutenant Roby's battery, whither they went through the fire of the enemy. They remained in the fort until the

I wish to mention Captain Mann, Lieutenant Latham, Lieutenant Hunter, of the Thirty-sixth; Lieutenant Rankin, of the First battalion; Captain Adams, of the Light Artillery, as very active and efficient. To Colonel Tansill, of my staff, we owe many thanks. To his skillful judgment and great experience the defence of the sand front was committed at the critical moment of assault. Of Major Rielly, with his battery, of the Tenth North Carolina, who served the g Armstrong and Berrien attracted special attention throughout. To Passed Midshipman Carey I wish to give personal thanks. Though wounded, he reported after the bursting of his gun, to repel the threatened assault, and actively assisted Colonel Tansill on the land front. Above all, and before all, we should be grateful, and I trust all are, for the favor of Almighty God, under which, and by which, a signal deliverance has been achieved. Very respectfully, [Signed] W. H. C. Whitin
e information of the Engineer Department. In this it only remains for me to express my grateful sense of the gallantry, endurance and skill of the garrison and its accomplished commander. To the latter I have already paid a just tribute of praise, not for this action only, but for his whole course at Fort Fisher, of which this action and its result is but the fruit. His report of the gallantry of individuals I fully confirm, from my own observation.

ver, at the proper moment, when the fire slackened to allow the approach of the enemy's land force, drove them off with grape and musketry; at dark the enemy withdrew. A heavy storm set in, and the garrison were much exposed, as they were under arms all night. At 3 A. M., 26th, a reported advance in boats was opened on with grape and shell. The garrison remained steadily waiting a renewal of the assault or bombardment until Tuesday morning, when they were relieved by the supports of Major-General Hoke and the embarkation of the enemy. Colonel Lamb's report, herewith, gives all the details of the action. In an accompanying paper I will give you an account in detail of all matters which fell under my own observation during the action and the three succeeding days, which I beg you will cause to be forwarded for the information of the War Department.
