Peveral lire rails tad boen aent down by the enemy, but our lit tle steim guuboats had got hold or them and towml them a'hnre, where they were permitted lu burn up without doing any ons injury. ?>n Mottilny night the heavy chain across the rlvor was to be cut,an l on Tuesday or Wednesday the attack was to be made by the fleet.
