WAsniNOTOfi, August 15. The following
official despatch ha been received at the
"Flagship 'llAKTronn,' M01111.1: Hat,
August 5, 18tM. Sir: I have the honor to
report to the Department that this morning I
entered Mobile bay, pausing between Forts
Morgan and Galne.t, and encountering the
Bebcl ram Tennessee, and the Rebel guuboata
Morgan, Sclma, and Gaines.
"The attacking fleet was under way by C'W
A. M., In the following order :
"The Brooklyn, with the Octorara on tho
port side ; the Hartford, with tho Metacome.t;
tho Richmond with the Port Jloyal; the
Lackateaiia with the Seminole; the Mo no 11
gahela with the Kennebec; the Onstpeo with
the Itasca; and the Oneida with tho Galena.
"On tho starboard of the fleet was the pro
per position of the monitors or iron-clad.-).
The wind was Jight, from the southwest, and
the sky cloudy, with very little sun.
" Fort Morgan opened upon us at ten min
utes, past 7, and soon after tills the action
"As we steamed up the main ship channel
tiere was some difUculty ahead, and the
Eartford passed on ahead of tho Brooklyn.
"At forty minutes past 7 the monitor Tecum
seh was struck by a torpedo and sunk, going
down very rapidly, and carrying with her all
her officers and crew, with the exception of
the pilot and eight or ten men, who were saved
by a boat that I sent from tho Metacomet,
long side of me.
The Hartford had passed the forts before
' 8 o'clock, and, finding myself waked by the
Rebel gunboats, I ordered the Metacomet to
go in pursuit of them, one of which, the Sclma,
he succeeded in capturing.
"All the vessels had passed the forts by half
past 8 o'clock, but the Rebel ram Tennessee
was still, apparently uninjured, In our roar.
"A signal was at once made to all this fleet
to turn again and attack tho ram, not only
with guns, but with orders to run her down
at full speed. The MonongaJiela was the
first that struck her, but though she miy
have Injured her badly, yet did not succeed
in disabling her.
"The Lackawanna also struck her, but Inef
fectually, and the flagship gave her a severe
shock- with her bow, and, as she passed, poured
her whole port broadside into her jolnl uiue
inch shot aud thirteen pounds of powder at a
distance of not more than twelve loot.
"The iron-clads were closing upon her, and
UiO Hartford aud the rest of the fleet were
bearing down upon her, when, at 10 A. M.
"The rest of the Rebel fleet, viz., tho Morgan
and Gaines, succeeded In getting back under
the protection of Fort Morgan.
"This terminated the actiou of the day.
"Admiral Buchanan sent his sword, being
himself badly wounded with a compound
fracture of the leg, which, it Is supposed, will
have to be amputated.
"Having had many of my wounded, and the
surgeon of the Tennessee being very desirous
to have Admiral Buchanan removed to a hos
pital, I sent a flag of truce to the commanding
officer of Fort Morgan, Brigadier-General
. lUcbard L. I'agc, to say that if ho would allow
the wounded of the licet, as well as their own,
to be taken to Petwacola, where they could be
better cored for than here, I would send out
one of our vessels, provided she would be per
. . mitted to return, bringing back nothing that
1 she did not take out. General Page con

Wo have taken some pains to ascertain the fol
lowing with reference to the antecedents of C ilo
ricl Anderson whose cowardly sunend r of Fort
Onines has made every true Alibumiau feel a
nad as If he had lost his dearest friend and the
21st Alabama Kegiment, whose lair fame he has
to sadly tarnished.
Anderson was appointed front civil life an
olticer in the regular urmy of the United States,
under " the four regiment bill," 111 lH il. When
the war commeueed in IMil, be was nuinedi itely
appointed Adjutant-Cieueiiil on (il.uideu's s atf,
where bt runiuincdnntd elected colonel of the 21st
Alubama. This occurred ai'ier tho ba'tlu of
Shilob, upon tho re.-ignuti.in of Colonel Craw
ford, and the sulmeipieut re-igna'loii of his sue
ei Kor. Colonel lngersoll. Colonel Amlerxin has
never la-en In a light, hence his pluck h el never
been tri d by tho only rd'Nb'e ordeal shells,
niiiile bolls, and bavonois it oio-o quart rs.
If not a native of Alabama, as wo have reason
to believe, be bus resided m me neighborhood ot
Mubiie, our Int'oruutiu says, ibu iet:er portion of
bis life, He is quite a yuuug man, bein j eon
siderably under forty.
The 21st Al ibama, of which he was conun Mi
ller at tho lime of bis surrender, has mule a
proud record in this war net'ore its otlirers elected
Anilerfon Colonel over as brave, captains as over
drew a blade in defense ol boaio and country.

younger brothers and r.laii-es of tho original
eonipiinies. The oltic ers of tliee companies have
been from the lint, and still are, we are informed,
"of the best blood of Mobile."
It is passing strange, tbc.cibro, that their pro
test against tho cowardly proceedings of their
colonel bad not amounted to op?n mutiny, see
leg, as they have done, the seri mi blow thereby
aimed at their beautiful and be oved city.

Colonel Anderson, our Informant says,
Major of the lHtu Alabama after the battle of
hiinob, in which he participated as a stall oilieer,
and acquitted himself with credit. Hewasafter
wunU) made Colonel of the 21st. lie thinks that
there was only one company of tho 21st at Fort
Gaines at the time of its surrender, a portion being
at Fort Powell, under Lteutununt-Uolonal Wd
l amf, another detachment at Fort Morgan, while
Itie lemainucr were guarding the salt works.
";'onel Anderson is a native aud residsat of
AiaLltrtlai ' -
Siiit-H-nder of Fort Onlaes. .
Thert ts a distasteful feature in the news pub
liihed from Mobile this moining the surrendur
of Fort (mines and the destruction of Fort Powed.
Although both these forts are of but acncs ry
importance In the defences proper of Mobile, itlil
the circumstances under which Fort G.uu;j it
reported to huve surrendered are s nature fell
cskulttted to VKt-iU nispicioti and indignation.
e confess that there is a hiatus in the report
one which, in fmr view, is of all itnponano
namely, tho withdrawal of General Pajsc from the
fort ut a iiio.iieut when evidence of treachery ou
the part of the coimiiuuder seemed tobeuumU
tillable. How is it that with tho ambiguous
EoniLou in which Colonel Anderson had plate
iiusoif by holding communication with tho
eiiuny, without the authority or eunsent of his
superior commander, how is it, we ask, that tliu
commander, upon repairing to the fort and ut-e:'-tuiumg
the luois, did uot remain ia the fort until
be 1 ud acquired the certainty of the treachery
which at that lime was so apparent that he found
it licet ssii rv at once to relievo Colonel Anders n ?
Ou the other hand, if he did relieve Coioual
Auderson from the uuuiuaud of th fort, it is
cl sr that some one else mnt hs,ve beeti p'aced in
r nm and. If so, how shall we explain the con
duct ot that ottlcer, who, being directed to con
msntl Colonel Anderson not to surrender the fort,
allows the snrremlcr ? So mnch s not stated in
tie trl'iirsm; still we are obliged to Infer as
tioi h ; for the In- taut that General Page had re
lit ved Cob nel Anderson, and had himself 1 -ft
the fort, it became neces ary that some one
slieu d be ia command, and that he did leave
inc one In command there can be no reasonable
d u hi.
This fnirender exemplifies, in oar opinion,
triaihcry, or, nt hast, strong evidence of
tn a -liery, C"WHrdice, or Imbecility. The a t of
the officer who surrendered to tho enemy, or to
Ai dersi n himself, afier he hail been instrurtoj
to direct Arib rton not to surrender, is posslhiy
to te attributed to Ignorance of his duties.
To turn now to tho question which tmi fall of
the Inrt involves. Apart from the humiliating
attending circumstances, not to mention the loss
ol msny gnns of heavy calibre, six hundred men,
and a large quantity oi supplies, there, is very
li'tlc in the act of the surrender it-elf which Is

of our m n nnd otlieers in reference ti the explo

ttli.rts to unravel it.
After taking a long walk along our lin 'K In
quest nf an explanation, he says the explosion, as
near as could be judged bv those who heard
nnd saw it, occurred oinc distance in the rear of
the Yankee lines, rather to tho left of U.tiery

near Ihe City Point road. It is represented to

whether it was intentional or not. The reports
