On the night of Sunday, the 5th, April, 1863. in the light of a full moon, the air calm and serene, Dupont anchored his fleet off Charleston bar, himself on board the James Adger, in which he had come up from Port Royal. Already, during the afternoon, Commander Rhind, with the Keokuk, The Keokuk was a double-turreted vessel, which had lately been built at New York.

Dupont had now transferred his flag from the Adger to the New Ironsides from which he intended to direct the movements of his squadron, and in which he determined to share in the labors and dangers of the impending conflict. The works around Charleston harbor to be attacked were numerous and f

lroad bridges, two iron-clad steamers, and some vessels in the ship-yard, were destroyed. Many of the cannon about the city were temporarily disabled; and a 600-pounder Blakely gun, stationed at a huge mound which had been thrown up at the angle of East Bay and South Battery, for the purposes of a magazine and battery, was exploded that it might not fall into the hands of the Nationals. The shock of that explosion nearly ruined a fine mansion opposite. The remains of the great gun were at Adger's wharf when the writer sketched them, The Union Generals> at the close of March, 1866. The dimensions of the breech (four feet three inches in diameter) are indicated by the figure of a man, standing by the side of it.

In June, 1865, by order of Governor Magrath, he was transferred to Congress and suggest such legislation as may be deemed best. J.

His mother's father was James Adger, a lieutenant in the war of 1812, and her grandfather was Maj.

Coolness. --We understand that the agents of the New York and Charleston Line of Steamships have detained the Columbia, Jas. Adger and Marion, and pressed them into the service of the Administration at New York. The capital invested in these boats is about $700,000. The proportion owned in Charleston is about $500,000, or over. The proportion owned in New York is about $200,000. Without the consent of the Charleston owners, they have quietly taken possession and kept all the vessels of the line, except the Nashville. They have not got possession of the latter, because the Charleston owners had very good reason why it should not return to New York, as it might be added to the other seizures. This stands in very bold contrast with their talk of our seizure of the Marion. The Marion was not, in fact, seized at all. With the consent of the owners it was taken into the service of the State for a limited time, and the State repaid the owners for the use of the boat at the

The Virginians here are mostly old men.--Capt. Shirley Carter Turner, for many years the noble Commander of the "James Adger" steamer, from this port to New York, had several brothers in the Navy and Army of the United States. All have resigned but one, and he is out of the country. Capt. Turner belongs to the old Virginia Carters, of Shirley, and a nobler specimen of Virginia's best blood does not live on the green earth. His health is bad and his means limited, and his family, which is large and young, is dependent on his daily toil. The Captain said to me yesterday, with great emotion, "if any good man w
