ive this day. Some preliminary account of your operations had previously reached us through rebel channels. Again it is my pleasure and my duty to congratulate you and your brave associates on an achievement unequalled in our service by any other commander, and only surpassed by that unparalleled naval triumph of the squadron under your command in the spring of 1862, when, proceeding up the Mississippi, you passed Forts Jackson and St. Philip, and, overcoming all obstructions, captured New-Orleans, and restored unobstructed navigation to the commercial emporium of the great central valley of the Union.

Having had many of my own men wounded, and the surgeon of the Tennessee being very desirous to have Admiral Buchanan removed to the hospital, I sent a flag of truce to the commanding officer of Fort Morgan, Brigadier-General Richard L. Page, to say that if he would allow the wounded of the fleet, as well as their own, to be taken to Pensacola, where they can be better cared for than here, I would send out one of our vessels, provided she would be permitted to return, bringing back nothing she did not take out. General Page consented, and the Metacomet was despatched. The list of casualties on our part, as far as ascertained, is as follows: Flag-ship Hartford--Nineteen killed, twenty-three wounded. Brooklyn--Nine killed, twenty-two wounded. Lackawanna--Four killed, two wounded. Oneida--Seven killed, twenty-three wounded. Monongahela--Six wounded. Metacomet--One killed, two wounded.
