sel, inflicting, however, but little injury. I beg leave, therefore, to congratulate you, sir, upon this final disposition of a vessel which has so long been in the minds of the public as a troublesome pest. I am, very respectfully, Your obedient servant, John L. Worden, Commanding Senior Officer present. To Rear-Admiral S. F. Du Pont, Commanding S. A. Blockading Squadron, Port Royal, S. C. Account by a participant. U. S. Steamer Montauk, Big Ogeechee River, Ga., Friday, February 27, 1863. As you are aware, the object of the blockading fleet at Ossabaw was to prevent the escape of the Nashville to sea again. Little more than two weeks ago she came from her position near the railroad bridge of the Savannah and Florida Railroad, which is about twelve miles up the river Ogeechee, and took a new position under the guns of Fort McAllister, intending to take advantage of the high spring-tides which were prevailing at that time, and seizing the first opportunity to sli

L. Worden, whose inclosed report states succinctly the interesting particulars. The department is aware that I have had this vessel blockaded for eight months, and I am indebted to the extreme vigilance and spirit of Lieut. Commander J. L. Davis, of the Wissahickon, Acting Lieut. Barnes, of the Dawn, and later of Lieut. Commander Gibson, of the Seneca, that I have been able to keep her so long confined to the waters of the Ogeechee. For several months the Nashville was loaded with cotton, but, though constantly on the alert, she never ventured to run out.
