He had fallen, manfully battling against them by the side of his gun, with words of encouragement upon his lips. After firing three or four effective shots, which crippled the Susquebana, and finding they were out of range of our gun,'he remaik ed to his men, 'Well, boys, we will give it to them again. But he had hardly ut tered these words ere an eleven inch shell exploding close by sent two or three frag ments of shell through his left arm, com pletely shattering it to pieces, cansing great pain, exhaustion, and loss of blood. He was supplied with lint by Mr. Tred well, one of our officers, who bad thought fully provided some tor his own use, should he be wounded, and who, during tho whole actbn, behaved, as did all the of ficers, with the utmost coolness and firm ness. He was taken on board the Win slow, and placed under the care of Sar gcon Greenhow of the C. S. Navy, an in telligent and successful Surgeon, where he 13 properly- cared for. The bombardment of Fort Hattcras by flower of the Federal Nary, was a scene which will ever be present to the minds of those who witnessed it.
