Fort Morgan, on Mobile Point, and made its way slowly over a swampy region in heavy rains, consuming five or six days in the tedious and perilous journey. The Sixteenth Corps was already at the appointed rendezvous; having crossed the bay in transports from Fort Gaines to Danley's Ferry. Meanwhile, a feint on Mobile was made to attract attention while the main body was concentrating at Fish River. This was done by Moore's brigade of the Sixteenth Corps, which landed, with artillery, on Cedar Point, on the west side of the bay, under fire of the squadron. They drove away the Confederate occupants of the Point, and followed them to Fowle River, where the pursuers were ordered to cross the bay and rejoin the corps, which they did on the 23d. March, 1865. The movement had created much uneasiness in Mobile, for Moore's force was reported there to be from four thousand to six thousand strong. While these movements were in progress on the borders of the bay, General Steele, with Hawk
al for a concentration on Mobile of Canby's entire disposable force. The cavalry, under Grierson, crossed Lake Pontchartrain from New Orleans, advancing to Mobile Point, whence the movement on Mobile commenced: the 13th corps marching thence around Bon Secours bay to strike Mobile from the east, where its defenses were deemed least elaborate; while Gen. F. Steele, with a division of Blacks, was impelled from Pensacola on Blakely, and a brigade of Smith's corps was transferred by water to Cedar Point, on the west side of the bay; landing under a heavy fire of shells from our iron-clads, and threatening an attack on the city from that side. Steele's advance was resisted by cavalry only, and not seriously, till, on reaching Mitchell's creek, a stand was made March 25. by some 800 of the 6th and 8th Alabama cavalry, under Clanton, who were promptly charged and routed--275 prisoners, including Clanton, being taken, and the residue of the force dispersed. Steele encountered no furth
Surrender of Fort Powell. Report of rear-admiral Farragut. flag-ship Hartford, West Gulf blockading Squadron, Mobile Bay, August 8, 1864. sir: I have the honor to inform the Department that Fort Powell was evacuated on the night of the fifth instant. The rebels blew up much of the fort, but we took all of the guns, and those of the best quality, a list of which will be forwarded. We took some covered barges also from Fort Powell and Cedar Point, which do us good service as a work-shop. The Fleet Engineer and Fleet Paymaster came in the Stockdale, with iron, etc., for the repairs of our vessel. On the afternoon of the sixth, the Chickasaw went down and shelled Fort Gaines, and on the morning of the seventh I received a communication from Colonel Anderson, commanding the Fort, offering to surrender to the fleet, asking the best conditions. I immediately sent for General Granger, and in the evening had Colonel Anderson and Major Browne on board, and the agreement was

to cut off the expedition altogether. The latter was reason enough for postponing an enterprise which we are now told is to be shortly reproduced in an irresistible form. Those batteries, it is confidently asserted, must and shall be taken; and the fleet which, we are told, is even now being fitted out, will doubtless embrace the landing of considerable bodies of troops, with the object of clearing out the batteries and spiking the guns. There are many who think that a land battery on Cedar Point shore, opposite Mathias' Point, will, with guns of the longest range, effectively cooperate with the fleet. It is now almost beyond conjecture that two squadrons or full companies of Federal cavalry were captured on last. Thursday afternoon within two miles of Alexandria by two regiments of Confederates. The cavalry had, on some unknown pretext, made prisoners of several citizens of the county, and brought them into Alexandria. They then returned to make more attests. Meantime, o

Standard says: A report is in town, which is thought to be well founded, that the Yankees have effected a landing at Swansborough, or at Cedar Point, near that place. It is only about 15 miles from Cedar Point to the Atlantic Railroad Bridge over Newport river, and it is supposed the Yankees were aiming to get possession of the bridge. We have no doubt they will be promptly met and driveCedar Point to the Atlantic Railroad Bridge over Newport river, and it is supposed the Yankees were aiming to get possession of the bridge. We have no doubt they will be promptly met and driven to their ships. Yankee prisoners. The Staunton Spectator, of Friday, says: On Thursday last, twenty four prisoners from the West arrived here by the railroad, and fifteen from Hardy county--the latter being Union men of this State. We understand that some of these latter had been in the Federal army and had been allowed to go home to "seed" their grain. For time, at loast, they will be supported by the Confederate States.

ands report many more being on board the vessels of the lower division of the flotilla. The Stepping Stones passed a pudgy also bound up. The Stepping Stones brought hither six contrabands, who were picked up by the tug Bailey, in the lower Potomac. They had escaped from Northumberland county, Virginia, in a dug-out, landed at Point Lookout, and it is evident from their statements that they had planned their escape long since. The Island Belle had fourteen contrabands on board at Cedar Point, and about fifty were sent to Old Point a short time since from the flotilla. The fugitives represent that there is great suffering in the Rappahannock region of Virginia for want of food, clothing, shoes, &c. The steamer Pusey arrived at the Navy-Yard this afternoon, reporting all quiet with the flotilla. The Harriet Lane had transferred her officers and crew to the Powhatan. Both vessels are now lying off Geesborough Point.--Five cases in all of small-pox have made their appea
