. G. Parrott. The plan of attack was to pass up midway between Forts Walker and Beauregard, which were distant from each other about two and one-third miles, receiving and returning the fire of both. When about two and a half miles north of Beauregard the line was to turn southward, round by the west, and close in with Fort Walker, encountering that work in its weakest flank, and enfilading in nearly a direct line its two water faces. When abreast of Fort Walker the engines were to be slopty stomachs. By 9 o'clock the squadron was in line ahead in close order, the flanking column in position. The vessels passed within 800 yards of Fort Walker, on which work the main line poured in its fire, while the flanking line opened on Beauregard as soon as it came within range. It was soon evident that the accuracy of the naval fire would be too much for the Confederates. Our shells burst with great regularity inside Fort Walker, throwing sand into the guns and into the eyes of the

d and sought the safety of well-known channels. Admiral Dupont was much chagrined when he received the news of this engagement; but a nation cannot expect to carry on a war with a skillful and energetic enemy without mishaps, especially under circumstances like the above, where the Confederates could slip out in the darkness, make a dash at the blockading vessels and retire when necessary to do so. The Confederate authorities endeavored to make great capital out of this affair, and General Beauregard, who commanded the defences, proclaimed officially that the blockade had been raised, as the United States Navy was powerless to maintain it. However, next morning, the blockading vessels were at their posts as usual, ready to prevent the ingress or egress of any vessel. The claim of the Confederates that the blockade had been raised by the raid of their two rams was, of course, absurd. To raise a blockade, it would be necessary to drive away the blockading vessels altogether and h

ed great satisfaction in Washington, which was soon dispelled by an unforeseen occurrence. In the month of April General Beauregard had been ordered to proceed from Charleston to strengthen the defences of Richmond. He passed through Wilmington wt accessions on the march, and assumed command of the district on the south and east of Richmond. On the 16th of May Beauregard attacked Butler's advanced position in front of Drury's Bluff, and Butler was forced back into his intrenchments between the James and the Appomattox Rivers; thereupon Beauregard intrenched himself strongly in his front, covering the city of Richmond from any further attempts of Butler in that direction. This predicament of Butler gave rise to the celebrated letter vessels on the James and Appomattox Rivers to cover his retreat to his transports, in case of further molestation from Beauregard. These military movements are mentioned merely to show the position of affairs in May, 1864, when the Army and Navy

the Navy at the ruins of Fort Sumter, which helped to crumble the works more and more; but that business had better have been left to General Gillmore with his siege-guns, and the attack of the Monitors should have been turned upon Moultrie and Beauregard, where their rifle projectiles would have done good service. On November 16th more congenial work offered. General Gillmore telegraphed: The enemy have opened a heavy fire on Cummings' Point. Will you have some of your vessels move up, so ry of Georgia sent dispatches that he could not send another pound of provisions to Richmond. Alabama, under the most urgent call, could only send forward 135,000 pounds of food. Mississippi was doing all she could in supplying rations to General Beauregard's army. South Carolina could only subsist the troops at Charleston and the prisoners in the interior of the State. The enemy had visited every section of North Carolina, and that State was only able to supply the forts at Wilmington with

ion by Rear-Admiral Dahlgren and his gallant officers and men is certain. They were always ready for any adventure, no matter how hazardous. Many acts of gallantry were performed by the Army and Navy; but, take it altogether, the siege of Charleston was in the highest degree harassing and unsatisfactory to both the Army and Navy of the Union. General Hardee evacuated Charleston to enable him to get in the advance of General Sherman and reach Raleigh and join his forces to those of General Beauregard, and with the garrison at Augusta, who were aiming to reach the same point. This left the coast of South Carolina comparatively free of Confederate troops; yet there were still points that required attention. Fortifications along the rivers had to be destroyed. In the panic at the movements of Sherman's army most of these places had been hurriedly evacuated without injuring them, and the enemy might again occupy them. On the 25th of February, 1865, Georgetown, S. C., was occupied

doubtless have been joined by the members of the Cabinet had he not expressly forbidden it. Besides the troops under the command of General J. E. Johnston, Sherman had some of the ablest generals in the Confederacy to contest his march. General Beauregard had been reinforced at Charlotte, N. C., by General Cheatham and the garrison of Augusta, and was moving towards Raleigh. General Hardee. with the troops from Savannah and Charleston, was marching towards the same point, as were General Br thousand men, commanded by one who was considered by many competent judges the ablest of the Confederate generals. There was certainly no general on the other side for whose abiliities Sherman had so great a respect as for those of Johnston. Beauregard, Hardee and Bragg gave him comparatively little uneasiness, and he was glad when Hood relieved Johnston at Atlanta, as he then felt assured of victory. But the Confederate army, which in the enumeration of its parts appeared so imposing, was
