from Major Elliott, commanding Fort Sumter: Fort Sumter, Sept. 7--2.40 A. M. All the garrison of Morris Island who came here have been shipped. Lieut. Haskell's boat, from the Chicora, was captured by a Yankee barge. Two of the crew came to Fort Sumter and reported that all our troops had left the Island. Stephen Elliott, Major Commanding. Review of the struggle. Thus ends the defence of Morris Island.--The issue has been foreseen since the enemy's first success on the 10th of July. The defence of the Island has been prolonged far beyond what was deemed possible at first, and the brave garrisons who have held it deserve the admiration of their countrymen. The aggregate of casualties in the struggle for the Island have been on our side about 700 --killed, wounded, and missing. The enemy's loss is estimated at about 6,000.--The successful evacuation, after the glorious defence of 48 days, is, under all the circumstances, a most gratifying military event.
