Notes on Action

On May llth, Captain William Hoste, of the Bacchante, received information that an enemy's convoy was lying in the Canale di Carlopago, on the coast of Croatia; and he accordingly arrived off the port on the 15th. By that time the convoy had disappeared, but, since the works of Carlopago afforded excellent shelter, he brought up within pistol-shot of the batteries, and opened a heavy fire. Upon the surrender of the place, a party, under Lieutenant Silas Thomson Hood, landed, blew up the fort, destroyed the public buildings, and carried off eight guns. The Bacchante, on this occasion, had 4 men badly wounded.
