ring humanity. Otter Island Fort and the adjacent waters were, on this occasion, placed in charge of Lieut.-Commanding Nicholson, who was directed to supply the negroes with food and do what he could for their comfort. The attention of Admiral Dupont had, in January, been drawn to the fact that the enemy designed to shut up the troops on Port Royal Island, by placing obstructions in the Coosaw River and Whale Branch, by erecting batteries at Port Royal Ferry, at Seabrook, and at or near Boyd's Neck, and by accumulating troops in the vicinity in such a manner as to be able to throw a force of three thousand men upon any of these points at short notice.

The murder of Boyd. --An account was given in a dispatch from Washington of the murder of a young man named Boyd, in that city. It is now stated (says the Alexandria Gazette,) that a squad of men from the Union regiment were sent to his house, (he being charged with being a secessionist,) and knocked and kicked at his door, (for the purpose of breaking it open, doubtless,) when he tired at them with a revolver, and they then fired at and killed him, he having closed the door after openingBoyd, in that city. It is now stated (says the Alexandria Gazette,) that a squad of men from the Union regiment were sent to his house, (he being charged with being a secessionist,) and knocked and kicked at his door, (for the purpose of breaking it open, doubtless,) when he tired at them with a revolver, and they then fired at and killed him, he having closed the door after opening it to deliver his fire, and one of the bullets passing through the planks and entering his body. A coroner's Jury has rendered a verdict according to this statement. The squad have been arrested.
