British naval movements. (search)
British naval movements. --By an arrival at Wilmington, N. C., from Bahama, the Journal learns that the British steam sloop-of-war Styx appeared off the bar of Nassau, New Providence, on the 20th ult., with dispatches from England for the Admiral of the West India fleet. The Admiral had left for Bermuda and the Styx proceeded immediately to that point. Captain Cave, of the Styx, brought information of the fight at Fort Sumter and of the blockade of the harbor of Charleston by the Northern fleet. It is probable that a large portion of the British West India fleet will be ordered to our Southern coast, to protect the interests of British commerce in these disturbed times.
