the enemy, burning the quarters of the officers and men, and blowing up one of the magazines. A large amount of ordnance and ordnance stores were found, an inventory of which is herewith inclosed.

The fire in the fort was extinguished immediately upon my arrival.

Respectfully submitted,

The principal implements of the guns were destroyed, the wheels of the gun carriages were broken, rendering them temporarily unserviceable. The powder, except 50 pounds, was all destroyed by being thrown into the water. The guns were found to be in good order, fourteen of the ninety-one only being spiked and shotted. For the want of lanterns and time I have been unable to examine all the magazines, therefore there must be a large amount of ammunition not included in this inventory.
