done to our men, and I presume none has been done to the rebels.
We have constructed two boats, which, if properly pitched or tarred,
would carry easily 12 to 15 men each. We have succeeded in secur-
ing and destroying a fine large dug-out belonging to the rebels.
There is a ferry-boat on the river below. It crosses at no particular
point, but whenever opportunity offers. I have had men concealed
on the bank to secure the boat two nights. It did not cross the first
night, and I have not yet had a report from the parties I sent out
last night. The boat is some 5 miles below here. We have thrown
up little rifle-pits on this side, which are of no consequence except
the appearance of covering our crossing at this place. I send by
the bearer to-day for two days' more rations. The guards report to
me that they have reason to believe that re-enforcements came to the
rebels opposite night before last. I mention this to show that per-
haps our expedition has in such degree proved successful.
Very respectfully, your obedient servant,
J. E. TOURTELLOTTE,
Lieut. Col., Fourth Minnesota, Commanding Expedition.
Captain M. ROCHESTER,
Assistant Adjutant- General.
Meheway reported captured on' the other side of the river, and
