Our preparations for this attack were made, so far as possible, at Hilton Head: the iron-clads, so fast as ready, slipping quietly, one by one, to their appointed rendezvous in the mouth of the North Edisto river, half way to Charleston harbor; where they were all finally assembled, April 3. awaiting the conditions of wind and tide deemed most favorable. A calm, clear night, April 5. following a full moon, proffered the awaited conjuncture; and Com. Dupont steamed April 6. in full force up to the harbor bar; shifting there his pennant from the gunboat James Adger to the stately, mailed Ironsides, in which he proposed to direct and share in the bombardment. By 9 A. M. next day, his fleet had all crossed the bar, and was in line along the east shore of Morris island, heading toward the most formidable array of rifled great guns that had ever yet tested the defensive resources of naval warfare. The iron-clads thus pitted against the tremendous ordnance of F

Connecticut had, by common consent, been chosen as the arena of a determined trial of strength, at her State Election this Spring, April 6. between the supporters and opponents respectively of the War for the Union. The nomination for Governor by the Republicans of William A. Buckingham, the incumbent, who had, both officially and personally, been a strenuous and prominent champion of coercion, was fairly countered by the presentation, as his competitor, of Col. Thomas II. Seymour, an ex-Governor of decided personal popularity, but an early, consistent, out-spoken contemner of the War — or rather, of the National side of it.

After spending two days in this work, Stoneman returned thence by Slatersville, N. C., to Jonesboroa, April 18. East Tennessee; in defiance of Sherman's urgent orders to remain in North Carolina, and afford him that aid which his weakness in cavalry required. Sherman remained quiescent at Goldsboroa, reclothing and refitting his army, until electrified April 6. by the news of Grant's successes at Five Forks, with the resulting captures of Petersburg and Richmond. He now impelled a determined advance April 10. against Johnston, who, with 40,000 men, still lay at Smithfield; which was entered, at 10 A. M. next day, by our 14th corps, supported by the 20th: Johnston, burning the bridge over the Neuse, retreating on Raleigh without a struggle; and, having the use of the railroad, which he destroyed behind him, was thus able to keep out of the way
