It consisted of Oak Plank Lour inches by 12 to Nabea Laid up and Down next the Iron and two Courene of Pine one longitudinal of eight inches thickness the other twelve Indice thick. The intervening space on top was closed by permanent grating of two Inch Square Iron two and one half inches apart leaving opening Tor four bal Hes Ona near each end and one Forward and one Shaft the smoke stack. The roof did not protect beyond the Boll. There was no knuckle As in the Atlantic Temi Yeeee and on other iroc Lada of later and improved construction. The ends of the shield were rounded.

Some changes Lead been made notwithstanding a bib the on Gid Ere reported that they were unreliable. They pet formed very Well during the fight but afterwards failed several time once while under fire. There were Many vexations delays attending the fitting and equipment of the ship. Most of them arose to i the want of skilled labor and Lack of proper tools and appliances. Transporting the Iron from Richmond also caused much delay the Railroad were taxed to Supply the army. The Crew 320 in non tier. Were obtained with great difficulty. With Lew exceptions they were volunteers from the army most of them were Landsman.

The Virginia was in Aeu warty Ber engine were unreliable and Ber Draff Over Twenty two feet prevented her from going to Washington. Her Field of operation waa therefore restricted to the Bay and its immediate Vicinity. There was no regular concerted movement with the army. The frigate Congress and Cumberland temptingly invited an attack. It was fixed for thursday no get. March 6, 1862 the Pilot of which there were five having Breu previously consulted. The sides were sloshed supposing that it would increase the tendency of the projectiles to glance. All preparations were made including Light t at obstructions. After dark the Pilot declared that they would not Pilot the Alp during the no get. They had a High sense of their responsibility. In Justice to them it a bold be stated that it was not easy to Pilot a vessel of our great draft under favourable Circum stances and that the difficulties were much increased by the at a Noe of lights buoys etc., to which they had been accustomed. The attack was Rost Pon d to saturday March 8. The weather was Uvo Rable. We left the Navy Yard at 11 a. A.

The frigates Minnesota Roanoke and St. Lawrence with other Voneela were seen coming from old Point. We fired at the Congress on passing but continued to head directly for the Cumby Klaud which vessel we had determined to run into and in lose than fifteen minutes from the firing of the first gun we rammed her Nat Forward of the Star Board fore Chain. There were heavy spars about Ber bows probably to Ward on torpedoes through which we had to break Belore reaching the aide of the Alp. The noise of the crashing Limber was distinctly heard above the Din of Battle. There was no sign of the Bole above water. It Mast have been Large As the Abib soon commenced to Careen. The Shock to us on striking waa alight. We immediately backed the engines. The blow was not repeated. We Here Loat the prow and bad the Stem slightly twisted. The Cumberland fought Ber guns gallantly As Long a they were above water. Be went Down bravely with her colors flying. One of Ber Sheila truck the Sill of the Tow port and exploded to fragments killed two and a snowed a number. Our Aiter nine Inch can was loaded and ready for firing when its muzzle a struck by a Shell which broke it Oti and fired the gun. Another gun had its thu role shot off it a broken so abort that at each subsequent discharge its port was set on fire. The damage to the Armor a slight. Their fire appeared to be aimed at our Porta. Had it been concentrated at the water line we would have been seriously Hurt if note irk owing to the ebb tide and our great draft we could not cloak with the Congress without tint going up sire Stu and then turn ing which waa a tedious operation besides subjecting As twice to the full fire of the batteries some of a Hub we silenced.

A fire was opened on them from the Shore and also irom the co Ogree with both of Ber White Flag flying wounding Lieut. Minor and Obeis. We replied to this outrage upon the usages of civilized warfare by reopening on the Congress with hot s of and Ine Tudury Shell. Her Crew escaped by boats a did that of the Cumberland.

We remained near the Congress to prevent Ber recapture. Had Bobeen retaken it might have Letra Aid that the Flag officer permitted it knowing that i brother waa a officer of that is so the Patrick Henry received a shot from the Sboril one of her boilers and had to be towed out of the fight. Be however Roon returned and was again hotly engaged. A Distant and Una at is factory fire was at times bad at the Minnesota. The gunboat Aleo engaged Ber.

About Thi time the Flag officer was bad wounded by a Rifle Ball Aud bad to be carried below Ilia bold daring and intrepid conduct won the admiration of All inboard. The executive and ordnance officer lieutenant Cates by apr. Jones succeeded to the command. The action Oon Liqued until dusk when we were forced to seek a Anchorage. The con Gres was riddled and on Kirk. A transport Steamer was blow up. A Schooner was sunk and another captured. We had to leave without miking a serious attack on the Minnesota though we fired at or a we named on the other Side of to Middle ground and also at the St. Lawrence. The latter frigate fixed at is by broadsides not a bad plan Tor Small calibres against Iron Cicada 11 concentrated. It was too dark to aim Well. We anchored off our batteries at Sewell Point. The Squadron followed. The Congress continued to Burn. She illuminated the heavens and varied the scene by the firing of Ber own guns the flight of her Bells through the air a a until shortly after Midnight when Ner Magazine exploded and a column of burning matter appeared High in the air to be followed by the stillness of death.

We were therefore no surprised to the morning to the Aee the Monitor at Anchor near the Minnesota. The latter ship was still aground. Home delay occurred from bonding our wounded ont of the Alp we bad but one serviceable boat left. Admiral Buchanan was landed at Sewell Point. At 8 a. M. We got under Way As did the Patrick Henry Jamestown and teas r. We stood towards the Minnesota and opened tire on her. The pilots were to have placed us Ball a mile from her Bat we were not at any time nearer than a mile. The Monitor commenced firing when about a third of a mile Distant. We soon approached and were often within a ship s length once while parsing we fired a broadside at her Only a Lew Yard Dan tot. She and her Turret appeared to be under perfect control. Ler Light draft enabled her to move about us at pleasure. Be once took position for a Short Lime where a could not bring a gun to Bear on her. Another of her movements caused us great anxiety be made for our rudder and propeller both of which could have been easily disabled. We could Only Aee Ber Guus when they were discharged immediately afterwords the Turret revolved rapidly and the guns were not again seen until they were again bred. We wondered Bow proper aim would be taken in the very abort time the guns were in sight. The Virginia however was ■ Large target end generally so near that the monitors shot did not often Mas. It did not appear to us that oar Shell Hod any effect upon the Monitor. We bad Rosalid shot. Musketry was fired at the look out Boles.

When we saw that on Are made no impression on the Monitor we determined to run into Ber if possible. We fund it a very difficult lest to do.

Wei it contending with the Monitor we received toe fire of the Minnesota which we never failed to retard whenever our glue could be brought to Bear. Wet or on fire Ard did her serious much Leas than we then supposed. Generally the distance a Loo great for effective firing. We exploded t he boiler of a Steamer alongside on a. The fight had continued Over three hours. To As the Monitor appeared unharmed. We were therefore surprised to see Ber run of into Ibcal water where our Art draft would not permit a to follow and were our sell could not Roach Ber. Tie loss of our prow and Anchor and consumption of Coal water etc., had lightened a so that the lower part of the Forward end of the shield v. As awash. We for some time awaited the by turn of the Moni Ion to the roads. Alter consultation i was decided that we should return to be Navy Sard in order that the Vetae should be my get Down in the water and completed. The Pilot said that if we did not then leave that we could not a the bar until noon of the next Day. We therefore at 12 m. Quit the roads and stood for Norfolk.

The effect of the hot striking obliquely on the shield was to break All the Iron and sometimes to displace several fees of the r ut1de course the w Toden backing would not be broken through. When a hot struck directly at right Angle the to gtd would also be broken through but a displaced. Generally the shot were much scattered in three instances two or More struck near the place in each Case causing More of Nifte Iron to be displaced and the Wood to bulge in Side.
