"Took the Oath." --The Yorkville (S. C.) Enquirer informs us that Lieut. Pemble, one of the captured officers of the Isaac P. Smith, off Stono, and who had been confined with his Yankee confreres in the jail at columbia, has renounced the old Union and taken the oath of allegiance to his proper mother, the Southern Confederacy, and is discharged. Quite a "scene" occurred on the occasion, and varied "phrases" were exchanged, rather more of the marine then of the moral school.
and Fernande Weed,&c. Fredericksburg, April 6. --I have received the New York Times, of the 2d inst., and send you a summary of the news contained in it: A Washington dispatch to the Philadelphia Ledger says; "The Administration confidently expects that news will be received before the close of the present week of important successfully our fleet in the near of Charleston, an arrangement having been perfected for an attack about the 26th or 27th ult. If the batteries at Stono be taken, it is believed our troops can be landed and the city reached without assaulting Moultrie and Sumter; while there forts, being out off from their supplies, would soon fall into our hands, without the loss of a man or a vessel." The Times acknowledges the failure to flank Hulpes's bluff by way of the Sunflower. Admiral P succeeded in getting through Steele's and Blach's bayous, and portended about thirty miles further in Dear and Rollin's forks where he accoutered a force
to render assistance to the Keokuk, but finding all their efforts to save her useless they abandoned her and left as above stated. In the evening, however, the seven turreted monsters re-appeared, and it is believed they had merely gone round to Stono to avoid the heavy blow that prevailed at the bar during the afternoon. The nondescript, or "Yankee Davis," for clearing the channel, was washed ashore on Morris's Island yesterday, and is now in our possession.--It is described as an old scoe the chief actors in the bloodless reduction of Fort Sumter in April, 1861, and who have now so gloriously and successfully repelled a formidable attack upon this famous fortress while in their keeping. No additional news was received from Stono. The number of vessels reported inside was about thirty. The heavy firing heard early in the morning and later in the afternoon is believed to have been practicing at the batteries. The following notice appeared in the Charleston papers
rom the Libby prison at 4½ o'clock this morning, by flag of truce, to City Point. The prisoners will be in change of flag officer Lieut. La Touche. After this exodue but very few will be left behind. The delivery includes all the officers, amongst whom are two Brig-Genls, 6 Colonels, 7 Lieut Cols, 8 Majors, 60 Captains. 61 First Lieuts, &c. On yesterday, Capt. Thos Damron and Lieut Wilson Damron, of the 4th Va (Abolition) cavalry; 1st Lieut. Isaac Goble, of the 39th Ky; and several Abolitionists heretofore confined in the Va Penitentiary, as hostages, were released yesterday and sent to the Libby and paroled. They start North with their brother Yankees this morning L S Conover, Lieutenant commanding the Isaac Smith, (steamer,) captured on Stono river, S C, Jan'y 31, and 14 others, officers and privates of the boat, arrived at the Libby yesterday from Charleston, and will be sent to City Point also. Several thousand prisoners are expected this week from the Fredericksburg army.
overed that the enemy had been strongly reinforced both on Big and Little Folly Island, and their barges with which to make the attack on Morris Island were tied to the piles in the creek — There were four monitors outside, two at the month of Stono river, and one in the river.--The Mayor upon receiving this information issued the following proclamation: Mayor's Office, Charleston, July 9, 1863, 1:30 P. M. To the Citizens of Charleston and its vicinity: Whereas, the enemy by land r places of business, and ordering the arrest of all free negroes in the city, as they were wanted to work on some unfinished defences on Morris's Island. During the day some five or more transports appeared off the harbor, and the Yankees in Stono river amused themselves during the day by shelling two points on James's Island. The Charleston Courtier furnishes the following particulars of the fighting on Friday: The morning was fair. Light, fleecy clouds floated slowly over the deep bl
irs at Charleston. At Charleston, Wednesday morning, four of the enemy's batteries on Morris's Island, mounting eleven guns in all, opened on Battery Wagner, assisted by the Ironsides and two of the monitors. The Ironsides retired after being struck by a gun from Sumter. During the evening another fire was opened upon Battery Haskell (on James's Island) from a new Yankee battery created on Black Island. It is probable, from this new fire and the fact that 27 transports are lying in Stono river, that a movement upon James's Island is contemplated by Gen. Gilmore. Thursday morning the Ironsides and two monitors commenced bring and shelled Battery Gregg all day, and the new battery on Black Island threw an occasional shell into Battery Haskell, on James's Island. Our entire casualties during the two days were four killed. Gen. Beauregard inspected all of the batteries on Thursday. A telegram from Charleston yesterday (Sunday) says "all is quiet here. The weather is clear and ho
arleston. --"Ora," of the Mobile Tribune, writes from Charleston: During the revolution of '76, when the British attacked Charleston, they came up the Stono river and North Edisto Inlet to Rantoul's, which is one mile from the Savannah Railroad, and twelve from Charleston. They surprised General Moultrie at Stono, at whiStono, at which battle the brave Colonel Jawrehee was killed. The British headed the Ashley river at the ferry, nine miles above Charleston, and attacked our fortifications at Charleston Neck, which they carried after a siege of five weeks, and compelled the city of Charleston to capitulate from famine. This portion of our present fortificatit a hard road to travel, as we have a line of fortifications at this point protecting the passage of Ranfoul's Creek, and a second line covering an inundation from Stono to the Ashley, the strength of which the enemy will find out on exploration. A third line covers all the bridges communicating with Charleston, and all the ferrie
he afternoon, when she ceased firing. There was no abatement of the firing between the land batteries Thursday night up to a late hour, the enemy's battery still playing upon Fort Sumter, and the litter making no response. No casualties are reported in Fort Sumter Thursday. The fleet inside the bar Thursday consisted of the Ironsides, six monitors, ten gunboats, three frigates, two brigs and four mortar hulks, and one or two supply vessels. There were also some twenty-four vessels in Stono, besides the usual number of blockaders outside. We find the following order from Gen. Beauregard relative to the observation of fast day: Hdq's Dep't of S. C., Ga., and Fla, Charleston, S. C., Aug. 20, 1863. The 21st day of August, 1863, having been designated by the President of the Confederate States as a day on which it was meet that our people should bow in humble submission under the chastening hand of the Almighty, and with reverent prayer beseech the favor of our He
From Charleston. Charleston, Oct. 8. --A brisk fire was kept up all last night between the enemy's mortar battery on Morris Island and our batteries on James Island. The Pawnee was in Stono river last night, shelling the woods on James Island. The Ironsides is surrounded by boats, rafts, &c., apparently repairing injuries inflicted by our torpedoes on Monday night. Active work on the part of the enemy is now daily expected. Charleston, Oct. 8.--We have been steadily firing at Morris Island all day. The enemy makes no reply. A careful reconnaissance of the enemy's works leads to the belief that he will not be ready to open fire for several days yet.
y fifteen miles. He then destroyed the track on the Nashville & Chattanooga Railroad, for nearly twenty miles below Murfreesboro'. His loss was three pieces of artillery, and about one thousand men in killed, wounded and prisoners, the most of them being prisoners. In connection with the above we extract the following, from a special to the Rebel, at Marietta, dated the 17th inst., which states that after he paroled the prisoners captured "he then dashed on and destroyed the bridge over Stono and Duck rivers, while Wharton threatened Murfreesboro'. Wharton then joined Wheeler at Shelbyville. The enemy were reinforced and fought and drove Wheeler back. He retreated across the Tennessee river near Courtland, Ala. Our loss heavy, but it was a brilliant exploit. Roddy is reported to have blown up the tunnel at Cowans." The situation of affairs. The question which now recurs is: At what point is Rosecrans likely to develop his intention ? I believe that it will be on the le
