THE HATTERAS PRISONERS, AT
ARRIVAL of TOE STRAN FRIGATE MIN-
The United States screw frigate Minnesota,
Captain J. (I. Van Brunt, bearing the broad
blue pennant of Silas H. Stringham, flag officer
and Commander-in Chief of the blockading
squadron, arrived this morning at nine o'clock,
and anchored off the battery.
She brings here six. hundred and ninety-one
prisoners of war, captured at the late engage
ment at Hatteras Inlet. The Minnesota is a
dskit-class screw frigate of thirty-4wo hundred
tons register and mounts for* guns ; she has
two engines of 460 home-power, and is propelled
by an aniiulary hoisting propeller; she has four
eleven-inch guqk capable of throwing balls cf
one hundred and sixty ppund weight. She car
ries a crew of about eight hundred all told.
During the passage up the bay the rebel offi
cers occupied the quarter-deck, and were in
tently engaged in viewing the vessels passing
to and fro, and the beautiful landscape on either
side of our noble bay. The rebel soldiers were
scatsered from the waist to the forecastle on
each side of the ship, looking out of the port
holes, leaning on the very guns that had aided
in their subjugation.
The crew were busy engaged about the deck,
the majority of them being armed with a cut
lass and a boarding pistol. We also noticed
that the twelve pounder boat howl+ zers were
placed aft, so that in the event of the rebels at
tempting to rise they might be prevented. The
officers on duty also had their side arms and
pistols. The marines were oat in full force, and
prepared to keep the prisoners in check.
The Minnesota entered the Narrows this
morning about 8 o'clock under steam alone,
and with trim yards and the entire crew attired
in blue pants, white frocks and white caps.
She looked like a picture on the smooth waters
of the bay. At the fore floated the broad blue
penant of the flag officer, and at the mizzen
peak lazily but proudly, drooped the good old
Stars and Stripes. Stop ping but a few moments
at the quarantine to be boarded by the health
officer, she resumed her trip up the bay. After
passing Robbin's Reaf light house, she hoisted
her private signal, which was promptly answer
ed by the gun-boat Rhode Island, which was
coming up the bay, and the frigate Potomac,
lying at anchor off the battery.
The prisoners on the passage hither were al
lowed full liberty of the ship, and were not
placed in irons. Of course, every precaution
was taken to prevent a surprise ; watches were
doubled and armed, magazines carefully guard
ed, and the small arm chant; and lockers in
charge of special and [trusty jack tars. The
gun deck was occupied as the sleeping apart
ment of as many of the prisoners as could be
accommodated, and the remainder were put on
the spar deck with the boom cover, and thus
protected from the falling dew. The passage
to this port babas very favoi able, the entire lot
of prisoners are looking exceedingly well, con
sidering their two days' fighting and their four
days' imprisonment. A rougher looking class
of men are seldom seen together. Most of
them are dressed in grey clothes, and wear felt
hats of all sizes and shapes, which are, to say
the least, ." shocking bad hats."
Most of the prisoners were either barefooted
or very near it. The use of razors seems t o be
unknown to the great majority of them, and
their unshorn hair adds much to the disagreea
ble appearance of the motley crowd. Moat of
them, however, are young, athletic men, and
look as if they might endure hardships, but
there is a peculiar expression about their coun
tenance which does not indicate courage.
Many of them claim that they were impressed
into the confederate service, and state that they
are good Union men, but to save their lives
they were obliged to take up arms for the con
federacy. This ia an old story, and with the
officers of the ship, it is not credtied in a ma
jority of instances.
Most of the common soldiers say that they are
glad that they have been taken prisoners, and
seem very anxious to know where they will be
sent now they are here. From them we learn
ed that their officers have studiously endeavored
to keep from them any northern papers, but
were willing to let them have and read seces
sion journals which contained the glowing ac
cents of their victories.
Most of the officers were clad in a species of
blue cloth or flannel, decorated with stripes and
buttonenot unlike those worn in the United
States navy. The officers occupied the after
portion of the ship, and were quartered in the
vicinity of the rooms of the officers of the ship.
Commodore S. Barron was formerly a captain
in the United States navy, a native of Virginia,
and was appointed from that State. He entered
the navy January 1, 1812. He has performed
nineteen years and three months sea service,
had eight years and lour months shore duty,
and been unemployed twenty-one years and five
months. At the time of his disaffection he was
waiting orders. He is probably about sixty
five years of age. The marks of time are plain
ly to be traced on his brow. He has been very
quiet since his capture and not at all commu
Lieutenant William Sharpe, a lienteant in the
Confederate Navy, was formerly a lieutenant in
the United States Navy. A native of Virginia,
he entered the navy September 9, 1841. He
has performed fourteen years and eight months
sea service, three years six months shore duty,
and has been in the service nineteen years. At
the time of his deserting the Stars and Stripes
he was in the Navy Yard at Norfolk. He is
about thirty years of age, and is said to be a
good seaman and well qualified as a naval offi
Just previous to the Minnesota letting go her
anchor, the United States frigate Potomac (50)
lying at anchor off the Battery, waiting orders,
triced up her ports and commenced firing a
commodore's salute of fifteen guns. Gun after
gun belched forth the white smoke until the
salute ended, when the Minnesota dipped her
ensign in acknowledgement, and the French
Imperial Yacht, and the French war steamer
Catinat, with the U. S. coast survey steamer
Vixen, lowered their flags, to which the Minne
sota replied by dipping her fiag.
The booming of the Potomac's guns soon had
the effect to bring down to the battery hund
reds of spectators, who looked with much eager
ness at the ships within whose bulwarks were
confined six hundred and ninety-one prisoners
of war. Scores of small boats were immediately
chartered, and hundreds of persons went out to
6443 the rebels. The regulations in reference to
visitors being allowed on board were very strin
gent, and no one was allowed to go on board

whistle screamed forth its fluffiest tones, and
the sterner sex cheered until they had passed
the frigate more than half a mile. All the
passengers were crowded on the one side, and
'he boat's gunwale was down below the water
line. Another boat came along, and the
monstration, onj board were j still more enthu
siastic, so much so that the sailors were very
anxious to answer it.
On the battery, the crowd rapidly increased
until at least ten thousand persons had assem
bled. At a few minutes past ten o'clock Com
modore Stringham entered his barge, which
was manned by thirteen seamen, clad in white,
and flying a broad blue pennant at the bow,
and the Stars and Striper) at the stern. As be
neared the shore, the crowd left their places at
Pier No. 1, N. R., and watched the course of
the boat bearing the gallant commander.
At the barge office the crowd gave him three
hearty cheers. Fle immediately went up town
to confer with the military authoriites in rela
tion to hi`a prisoners. After he had left. its
French war steamer Catinat salritedthe-Avadti
