tolemenu from beginning tqeud, ecarce
1 equaled by the misstiiieuiein made re
garding the Lieutenant General.
1 ho navy had been waiting two month
to start on this expedition, but for reasons
known to the Lieulenant-Cieneral and
inyeeir, and which wero perfectly saliblac
tory to mo, the proper time wa waited
lor. Wo wanted a EtiP(PB nni a r,.;i,...
Goo. Weilzel was selected, and General
butler a name was never onnnnt.,i
the espedition, except to tit it out. When
the expedition did prepare to start, it was
going to tho attack ou the supposition
that the powder vessel (originally prepar
ed by Gen. Butler) would blow the forts
down, and the troops would have nothing
to do but to walk in.
I was not opposed myself to the experi
ment (for I think everything worth try
ing), and gave all my lime aud attention
to the enterprise and lilting out the ves
sel. I was hard at work getting ready, fil
ling her with powder, and had placed hei
in tho carpeuler's hands, tha weather
looking very squally. Judge of uiy sur
price, when Gen. Butler camo on board
Ihe fla.j-3hip at .Norfolk, and told
me he was embarking the troops in
transportsand would bo roady to eiart in
two days. I told him that was out of the
question, a heavy southwest cale was com
ing on that would last three days at least,
and we could not go to sea ut such a lime,
neithor could his transports move. My
Judvice was "not to embark the men until
i the gale was over."
j He did emba.'k the troops nevertheless.
The gale blew heavy for lour days, and
the troops must have been very unconi
fortablo. At the end of that gale the
(loot sailed. I told Clener d Butlor thai
uiy Toati were uii iuw ; me tiiuuuun
would have to bo lowed ; would have to
go into Beaufort to till up with ammuni
tion ana coal, as 1 was afraid to venture
them at sea with too much in. I advised
him to wait until we had got thirty-six
hours start of him, and also i ecommeuded
him to rendezvous at Ben u fori, orli
Carolina, where ho would hod a good
harbor. Kren up to this limo ho did not
tell me that he himself was going along,
but led me to believe Gen. W eiUel was to
be in command. He did not take my
opinion about sailing. His transports
sailed before any fleet, excert the monitor,
and instead of rendezvousing at Beaufort,
where I could find him he rendezvoused oil
Jlasonboro inlet; showed bis flagship deck
ed out with Hags to tho enemy at Ft. Fisher
and had one of his transports iired on ly
guns near the fort. In the meantime 1
worked night and day at Beautort to get
the monitors ready and complete the ar
rangement for the powder bout, and I
sailed when ready. There was no time
when any troops could have landed with
out danger up to the time the first attack
took place. I was to be tho judge of that,
not Gin. Butler, tor I had not that faith
in his generalship which would induce me
to follow him blindly, though determin
ed to do all 1 could for him, and make
the expedition a success if possible.
1 soon saw, though, that Gen. Butlor
depended on the powder boat enliieiy,
and I said we would have no assault from
I will now proceed to notice Gen. But

He first says he gave the navy thuty-eix
hours start. That is untrue; the trans
ports started before the navy, or disap

did. He sp?nks of the " finest possible

er myself or any one of tha squadron had
the rainiest idea where the channel was
or what depth of wafer thero was in it.
We knew there was an outer and insido
bar, between which was included tho heav-
ii jumucuiions in iuia country, on which
bars the blockade runners "constantly
grounded, and had to wait for high wate'r
to get oil. AftPr we had no guns to anoy
us, und I had the channel sounded out
and carefully buoyed, nearly all tho gun
boats of light draught got badly aground,
and remained there for a wholo tide. We
were forty-eight hours getting gunboats
of hght batteries over tho first bar, and
they had to anchor binder theguus of the
heaviest forts. They would have fared
badly had tho rebels manned tlmni.
Three d.ys were consumed ingulfing
the gunboats over tho 'Kips," und one of
them is stuik there still. Tito ''Kips"
are commanded by about twenty 10 inch
gune and 100-poiinders, and not a gun
boat would have been left had they at
tempted to run tho batteries-. It might
have been sport to General Butler, but it
would have been doath to tho gunboats.
I never had the bliglitest intention of pass
ing the batteries until Ihe fort was taken.
Ttio department saw my plan, and the
utter impossibility of doing so.
I wolud certainly not havo been influ
enced by -General Culler's" opinions in
nauticle matters, or rUked my vossels to
All tho next paragraph in General But
ler's report, in relation to what the "Ad
miral" said, and what the "Admiral," de-
nlina.l In tn 14 f:llhrt f-nm 1 m.r I n r. i n
I never had any conversation of the
kind wiih uny one indeed, the whole
report is a tissue of misrepresentations,
inuluding the part that says tho instiuct-
ions ko received did not contemplule a
"siege, ivo when ho knows he nevor re
ceived Any instruction, and joined the
expedition without orders.
General Butler speaks of pushing up
his men to within u few hundred yards of
Fori - Fisher, and capturing llall'-moon
battery aud its men. The "General"
certainly must have had something in his
eye, und did not see well. HaH'-moon
battery is lour miles from rort I-isher,
had one gun in it, which was silenced af
ter a few shots from the gunboats, and no
one ever entered it. It was a small sand
hill, that twenty men could have taken.
Flag Bond battery was n largo work,
thrown up by the rebels, in which was'one
eight inch gun that had burst some time
ago. The gunboats shelled it, and, on
the landing of the firat boat-load of troops,
tho seamen went up and fojnd somo boys
and old men iu it (North Carolina Juuior
Ue.'erves,) and carried them ufT to the
Santit-go do Cuba. The prisoners were
quite willing to go. The troops after
wards surprised '21S ofljeors aud uicu near
Fort Finher, and captured lliotn.
General Butler speaks of having run in
the Chamberlain to within a few hundred
yards of the fort. If he ran that closo and
was not fired at, he must have supposed
the fort silenced; but he never was within
one mile and a "half of the fort nor did he
ever land himself.
What General Butler says about the
difficulties of assaulting, owing to pali
sades, ditches, and other bugbears, has
been refuted by tho successful assault,
made by Goneral Terry on the hud side,
and the sea face of the fort, when thirty
