A Panio prevailed at Charleston, which a week before the battle of Port Royal was regarded as absolutely impregnable. In explanation of the panic it is said: The entire fighting population of Charleston and Savannah as well as the intervening and adjacent country is on active duty. The exempts are very few in number, being confined to those who are engaged in expediting the preparations for the war, or are detained by other occupations which the public interest requires not to be suspended.
