    No.4.] FLAG STEAMER WACHUSETT, Havana, October 11, 1862.

    SIR: I have to communicate to the department the infrsction of the neutrality regulations by the commander of her Britannic Majesty's gunboat Bull Dog, in transporting Captain Pegram and seven officers from Nassau to Bermuda, in July last, on their way to England to take charge of the 290, or other vessela about to fit out there under the aecesh flag, aud that I have but little doubt that the officiale, both at Nassau and Bermuda, were aware of and assented to the violation. Thia information I have from moat reliable authority-those who knew Captain Pegram and Lieutenant Bennett well, and witnessed their arrival at Bermuda and embarcation on board the mail packet for Halifax. They staid but a few hours at Bermuda.

    I am, very reapectfully, your obedient servant, CHARLES WILKES,
