Another gunboat gone.

--Just as the Kno kuk was going down in front of Charleston another Yankee gunboat was following her example in the Cooeaw river, a few miles distant. The Federal gunboat George Washington, Captain Campbell, mounting four guns, anchored off Chisholm's Island, and shortly after the Confederate light artillery was brought to the bank and commenced pouring a hot fire into her; she took fire and was burned to the water's edge. Several of those wounded on board were burned to death, another Yankee gunboat having come up and commenced firing on some of our soldiers who had gone out in a boat to take the poor wretches off the burning vessel.
