 Brigadier-General JORDAN,  Chief of Staff:

Lieutenant-Colonel Dantzler reports a gun-boat sunk off Battery Marshall; smoke-stack and rigging visible. A tug-boat and barge are around her, supposed to be the Flambeau. Another has not been seen since Wednesday night, and it may be she was blown up by the missing torpedo-boat.
