The Norfolk Day Book, December 29, also says that General Scott has arrived in New-York, and that he left England at the request of the English authorities, and that England was about to declare war against the United States.
President proposed to proceed to business. At this juncture Mr. Welles looked up from the paper he had been so busily perusing, and inquired of the President: If he had ever heard anything about the fight the Democrat spoke of, between the Monitor and the Merrimac, and the danger there was of the latter getting out and coming up the Potomac and bombarding Washington? Mr. Lincoln said: It was a fact. The Secretary seemed greatly surprised, and said: He must write to his brother-in-law in New-York, to send round a vessel to Hampton Roads, to watch the Merrimac, and also to send him the Weekly Post, so that he could get the news. He chose the Post, because he had been in the habit, aforetime, of contributing essays for its columns. He also remarked that there was much valuable and deeply interesting news in the Democrat, which was then only some four weeks old. Mr. Stanton here proposed that the contraband article should be read, as he had been so busy of late, he had not read th
soners confined in the Sixteenth-Street Prison were to be removed to the Old Capitol Prison, where, in consequence of their rebellious proclivities, quarters have been prepared for them. Accordingly, we visited Lieut. N. E. Sheldon, a native of New-York, and an officer of the Sturgess Rifles, the body-guard of General McClellan during his campaign in Western Virginia, who, for some time past, has been detailed as the guard of these prisoners, and were admitted, after some delay, into his quarte a widow and sometimes a wife, was arrested in Chicago some months since, and after being confined here six weeks, was released on parole. Forty dollars were given her to pay her expenses back to Chicago, but instead of going there, she went to New-York. She was last heard of at St. Louis. An English lady, Mrs. Elena Lowe, who was arrested at Boston, and whose son was with her, having come with a commission in the rebel army, has also been confined in this institution. The son was afterwar
The London papers of the twenty-ninth of January published the following monster hoax, under the heading Rumored Confederate victory at Port Royal : The Asia has brought intelligence from New-York of a battle having been fought on the twelfth of January on the main land, in the vicinity of Port Royal, between Gen. Lee's forces and the Federal troops, resulting in the total defeat of the latter, with a loss of one thousand seven hundred killed and wounded. The Washington Government, we are informed, had taken steps to suppress the news of this reverse, which, nevertheless, has reached a highly respectable party in Liverpool, through a private channel.
New-York, Feb. 26.--We are well assured that a proposition from the rebel leaders for a new compromise has been submitted to our Government, and that either the programme or its substance is in the hands of a leading Democrat of our city. The object of the rebels in transmitting it to him we presume to be the manufacture of public sentiment in its behalf. The gist of the proposition we understand to run thus: 1. An armistice for a specified term, with a view to a peaceful adjustment of all differences. 2. A Convention of the States, with a view to such a revision of the Federal Constitution as will induce the slaveholding rebels to condescend to govern us in the future on terms nearly as favorable as in the past. We believe this is all for a beginning. New-York Tribune, February 26.
A secession Dodge.--The Albany Atlas and Argus prints the following: We do not know how the people of Maine will regard this invasion of their soil; but we do not believe that a British regiment could ever find its way to Canada, if it landed in New-York, and sought to pass through this State. It is by such pieces of idiotic rant that the Atlas and Argus seeks to aid the rebellion. Debarred from serving the secession cause directly, it now bends its efforts to doing it indirect service by misinterpreting every act and traducing every measure of the Government. If, however, the readers of that journal can be influenced by any such pitiful stuff as this, it simply shows they are as much of fools as it is assumed they were when the writer ventured to pen such nonsense. New-York Times, January 15.
pilot-house received one shot on one of the upper corners, nearly battering it down. A little later in the action, however, a heavy shell was thrown from the distance of about fifteen feet against the front, at an angle of about thirty degrees, striking the two upper bars, just at the look-out crack, the main force being on the lower of the two, forcing it in about an inch and opening a crack of one fourth of an inch on the opposite side. She twice attempted to open a hole in our side with her ram, as she did the Cumberland, once striking us fairly on our beam, nearly abreast of the turret, jarring us somewhat, and leaving a small dent on our iron side. Our hull remains perfectly tight, and the turret, notwithstanding the severe hammering, revolves as accurately and easily as when we left New-York. We experienced a severe gale on our way down, coming through it safely. That and our trial with the Merrimac prove the Monitor, we think, a success. W. F. Keeler, A. A. Paymaster.
e immortal shore, Where the “waters of life” in brilliancy beam, And the pure float in peace evermore! “Shall we give them a broadside once more, my brave men?” Ay, ay, rose the full, earnest cry; “A broadside,” “a broadside,” we'll give them again! Then “for God and the right nobly die.” “Haste! haste!” for amid all that battling din Comes a gurgling sound fraught with fear, As swift-flowing waters pour rushingly in; Up! up! till her port-holes they near. No blenching, no faltering — still fearless all seen; Each man firm to duty doth bide; A flash! and a “broadside!” a shout! a careen! And the Cumberland sinks 'neath the tide. The “Star-Spangled Banner” still floating above, As a beacon upon the dark wave! Our ensign of glory, proud streaming in love, O'er the tomb of the “loyal and brave!” Bold hearts! mighty spirits! “tried gold” of our land! A halo of glory your meed! All honored, the noble-souled Cumberland band, So true in Columbia's need!
Who Furnished the Nashville Coals?--The Hamilton Bermudian, of February twenty-sixth, noticing the arrival of the rebel steamer Nashville at the port of St. George's, states that, having procured a supply of coals from the Mohawk, now lying in the harbor of St. George's, the Nashville proceeded to sea. Upon reference to the shipping intelligence column, we find that. the only vessel of that name in port is the ship Mohawk, Captain Fuller, which sailed for New-York March sixth. Inquiry into this matter, by the proper officers, should be made.--Tribune.
