a very large and strong work, containing three ten-inch mortars, two forty-two pounders and a rifled cannon. From these works, a long line of batteries stretched down the sea side of Morris' Island, commanding the ship channel, and threatening a terrible ordeal to the Federal vessels, should they attempt to enter. Nearly west of Sumter, on James' Island, was Fort Johnson, where a strong battery of mortars and cannon was erected. On the northeast was Fort Moultrie, ready with Columbiads, Dahlgren guns, mortars, and furnaces for red-hot shot. In the cove near the western end of Sullivan's Island, was anchored a floating battery, constructed of the peculiarly fibrous palmetto timber, sheathed with plate iron, and mounting four guns of heavy calibre. On the 8th day of April a message was conveyed to Gov. Pickens of South Carolina, by Lieut. Talbot, all authorized agent of the Federal Government. It was as follows: I am directed by the President of the United States, to notif

He held a conference with Admiral Dahlgren, commanding the fleet, and determined to attemns; and he indicated that it only remained for Admiral Dahlgren, with his fleet, to enter upon the scene, and bility could one of the gunboats escape these, and Dahlgren's squadron of iron-clads and Monitors did not darecommand of the post. On the 7th of September, Admiral Dahlgren, determined to test Gillmore's assertion that Beauregard telegraphed to Maj. Elliot to reply to Dahlgren that he could have Fort Sumter when he took it andAnderson was compelled to lower in 1861, and which Dahlgren had hoped to replace. After this repulse of theds to obtain a position that proved worthless; Admiral Dahlgren feared the destruction of a fleet which had co

as now thrown forward; his army closed gradually and steadily in upon Savannah; and on the 10th December it lay in line of battle, confronting the outer works about five miles distant from the city. His first task was to open communication with Dahlgren's fleet, which lay in Ossabaw Sound, and he therefore determined to capture Fort McAllister, at the mouth of the Ogeechee, which enters the ocean but a few miles south of the Savannah. Fort McAllister was a large enclosure, with wide parapetsblood. When Sherman saw the Federal flag raised upon Fort McAllister, he seized a slip of paper, and telegraphed to Washington: I regard Savannah as already gained. The possession of the fort opened Ossabaw Sound, effected communication with Dahlgren's fleet, and indeed made the capture of Savannah, where Hardee appeared to be shut up with ten or twelve thousand men, but a question of time. But it was Sherman's hope to capture Hardee's army with the city; and movements were made to close up

It was ascertained, by the reports of prisoners captured from them, and other evidence, that their design was to enter the city, toempt. But in truth the means adopted were those of humanity and prevention, rather than of execution. The Confederate authorities felt able to meet and repulse Dahlgren and his raiders, if they could prevent the escape of the prisoners. The real object was to save their lives, as well as those of our citizens. The guard forcorm the prisoners that any attempt at escape made by them would be effectually defeated. The plan succeeded perfectly. The prisoners were awed and kept quiet. Dahlgren and his party were defeated and scattered. The danger passed away, and in a few weeks the gunpowder was removed. Such are the facts. Your committee do not hes
