Twenty-First Regiment.

This regiment, recruited at Camp Lincoln, Worcester, is made up of companies from the central and western portions of this Commonwealth. On the 22d of August it left for Annapolis, Md., where it remained some time, having in charge the railroad from that city to the Baltimore and Washington Junction. Colonel Morse has long been prominent as an officer in the State militia. When appointed to the command of the Twenty-First, he was Major-General of the Third Division Massachusetts Volunteer Militia. Lieutenant-Colonel Maggi, of New Bedford. is an Italian by birth, and a thoroughly-educated officer. He served under Col. Wardrop in the Third Regiment, and took part in the destruction of the Norfolk Navy Yard.

This regiment was in Burnside's expedition to Roanoke, and there did excellent service against the rebel island. This was the fourth regiment landed in Ashley's Harbor, upon the island, the night of the fourth of February. They made a slight advance immediately upon landing. This regiment proceeded along a road leading diagonally across the island, and when about one quarter of a mile from the shore, fell in with the pickets of the enemy.

The approach of the enemy's position was through a swampy wood, with a dense undergrowth, rendering it almost impenetrable. An ordinary cart-road, leading through this wood from the shore to the field-work, a distance of about a mile, was the only mode of communication. The woods in front of the battery had been cut down a distance of three hundred yards, forming an open space to be played on by the rebel guns, about two hundred feet wide. The woods immediately in rear of the work were also cut down, to permit the maneuvering of their own forces.

Their battery consisted of an earth-work with three faces, covering the open space before and the woods at each side of the open space, but with a general direction of fire to the front. The guns were mounted in embrasures, and consisted of a fine twentyfour-pounder brass Dahlgren howitzer, a long eighteen-pounder brass field gun of the date of 1834, and a new twelve-pounder brass field-piece. In front of the work is a ditch, eight feet wide and about three feet deep, and filled with water. This earthwork is about thirty-five yards wide, and is erected across the road by which our men must advance. The ground in front of the work is a deep marsh, on which the trees which were felled still lay. The difficult nature of this ground was increased by the pits from which the turf and earth for the field-work had been taken. Branches were strewn over the front of the work, making it difficult to discover it from the wood in front.

The defending force consisted of about three hundred men within the breastwork, and about three thousand as a reserve, and deployed as skirmishers on the left of the battery. They relied chiefly for the defence of their flanks on the almost impenetrable nature of the wood on each side. Their entire force, with the exception of the force working the battery, was scattered in front and in the woods on the left as skirmishers.

Our army advanced from the bivouac ground of the night previous, where they had spent the night with nothing but thin overcoats to protect them from a cold, driving rain. They had left their knapsacks and blankets on the transports, each man carrying nothing but his haversack, with three days' provisions, and his cartridge-box, with forty rounds of ball cartridge.

The 21st Massachusetts led the second column in the advance. This column advanced through the woods upon the enemy's right, doing some sharp fighting with small arms as they advanced." But the rebels soon found their reliance upon the woods of little avail, and abandoned their batteries and took to flight. Three companies of the blst New York first planted the stars and stripes in this battery, and they were soon followed by the Massachusetts 21s:, when Lieutenant-Colonel Maggi planted the white flag of Massachusetts by its side. The men of the 21st followed along the line of retreat of the rebels to the east side of the island. Several rebel boats escaped, but two were compelled to return, when some thirty prisoners were taken, among whom was young Wise, mor:ally wounded. The 21st Massachusetts then advanced to ihe northward, in the direction of a large camp of the rebels, and after a little skirmishing, with three killed and five wounded, the rebels retired, and our men advanced. They were soon met by the rebel ofñcer, bearing a white flag, asking for the terms of a surrender. The reply was, "unconditional,” when they gave up their swords.
