Aide-de-Camp McDonald, of General Reynolds' staff, Major Dobbs, Adjutant C. H. Ross, Captains Newland, Johnson, Harrington, Clinton, Kirkpatrick, Myers, Smith, Delong, Shields, Bailey, Durbin, Jones, (killed,) and many others, of the Thirteenth Indiana; Captain Hamilton and Lieutenant Brent, of the Thirty-second Ohio. All of these did their duty manfully, and made great slaughter among the rebels.

this manner. This Concludes the brief sketch of a fort which is a most perfect specimen of civil and military engineering. The whole work has been conducted in a manner that reflects the highest credit upon the engineers, and is worthy to occupy the prominent position that it holds. In conclusion, we take occasion to allude to one point of especial beauty — the construction of the rubes — of which there are nearly every variety — the "Full Centre, " the "Segment," the "Groined," the "Askew," and the "Rampant"--and to add that the walls at their are 12 feet thick, and at the top 8½ feet thick.

Another description of the forts in the harbor of Charleston says: The two works which are designed to command the entrance of the harbor are Forts Moultrie and Sumter. The latter is the larger of the two, with three tiers of guns, surrounded entirely by water, too shoal for heavy ships to approach, and yet sufficient to prevent the use of batteries nearer than 800 or 90
