The morning of the twenty-first, about sunrise, Brigadier-General Leggett reported, that the enemy had evacuated his front. Soon the same report came from General Slocum, and from other officers. General Slocum moved at once and took possession of Savannah, the enemy having with-drawn to the South-Carolina shore. He had abandoned heavy guns in all the works on my front, in town, and at the different forts on the coast. Until now, our depot had been at King's Bridge, where the army had built a good wharf, and corduroyed the main road thereto from our front, for the most of the way. Besides, the railroad between the Ogeechee and the Altamaba was completely destroyed, Brigadier-General Hazen, having the eastern, and Major-General Mower the western half. This work was completely done, as

After firing thirteen rounds, silenced their guns, at a distance of one thousand five hundred yards, with no nineteenth, a regiment of rebel cavalry made their appearance about two thousand two hundred yards' distance, on the South-Carolina shore. After firing three rounds caseshot they withdrew out of range.

On the evening of the twentieth instant, a noise was heard directly after dark, in the direction of the city, sounding much like the laying of a pontoon-bridge. Especial attention was paid to the noise for about two hours, when, feeling confident that the enemy were throwing a body of troops from the Georgia to the South-Carolina shore, my Adjutant, by order of Lieutenant-Colonel Jackson, crossed the river about ten P. M., and reported the fact of the noise and the opinion of those on the island concerning it, to Colonel P. H. Jones, commanding Second brigade, Second division, Twentieth army corps. The following morning, I was ordered across the river to join the brigade. Crossing, we arrived in the city and at the brigade shortly after noon. Very respectfully, your obedient servant, Charles C.

he great effect that must be produced by the army recently landed at Wilmington, it is reasonable to infer that General Sherman will advance rapidly to a junction with it, and neither seek nor need further communication with the sea whilst in South-Carolina. Yesterday, while engaged in operations at Bull's Bay, I received a despatch in cipher from General Gillmore, which he had just received from General Sherman, asking me to decipher it, upon which I steamed down to Hilton Head, in order to Luce, Lieutenant Commander.

C.: We are on the South-Carolina road, at Midway, and will break fifty miles from Edisto toward Augusta, and then cross toward Columbia. Weather is bad, and country full of water. I have ordered Foster to move Hatch up to the Edisto, about Jacksonboro and Willtown; also, t

At Florence Station, we met Mr. Keitt, a member of Congress from South-Carolina when that State attempted to secede. He welcomed MrSouth-Carolina when that State attempted to secede. He welcomed Mr. Holmes very warmly, and inquired, with great anxiety, whether Sumter was to be given up. Mr. Holmes said, Yes, I know it; which seemed to give Mr. Keitt much satisfaction, but he insisted upon knowing his authority. Mr. Holmes said I have the highest authority for what I say; and upon Mr. Keitt again asking who, he leaned towarsubmit to you fully, in person, is herewith presented in writing. Lieutenant Hall and myself have had several free conferences, and if he is permitted by the South-Carolina authorities to renter Fort Sumter, Major Anderson will comprehend the plan for his relief.

Defence of General Benham. see the reduction of Fort Pulaski, Vol. IV. rebellion record. after the fall of Fort Pulaski, in April, 1862, for the rest of the month it appeared impossible to effect any thing against the enemy with the few troops then available in this district, stretching along nearly two hundred miles of coast, from St. Augustine, Florida, to North-Edisto River, South-Carolina. These troops did not consist of more than about fifteen thousand effective men. At the close of April, the barge crew of General Ripley escaped from Charleston and were brought to Port Royal. They represented the troops and defences of Charleston to be very weak, comprising not more than five or six thousand men altogether, and those for a large portion raw troops or boys; so that General Benham then conceived a plan for attacking that city, which was at once informally laid before General Hunter, Commodore Du Pont, and others, and appear
best authenticated news-papers received from the United States announce as a fact that Major-General Hunter has armed slaves for the murder of their masters, and has thus done all in his power to inaugurate a servile war, which is worse than that of the savage, inasmuch as it superadds other horrors to the indiscriminate slaughter of ages, sexes, and conditions. Brigadier-General Phelps is reported to have initiated at New-Orleans the example set by Major-General Hunter on the coast of South-Carolina. Brigadier-General G. W. Fitch is stated in the same journal to have murdered in cold blood two peaceful citizens, because one of his men, while invading our country, was killed by some unknown person while defending his home. I am instructed by the President of the confederate States to repeat the inquiry relative to the cases of Mumford and Owen, and to ask whether the statements in relation to the action of Generals Hunter, Phelps, and Fitch are admitted to be true, and whether the
