the city. This bay has a length of not less than four miles; and, although the surrounding shores are far apart, at some points more than two miles and a half, the navigable portion has a width of only one mile and a quarter; it becomes still narrower south of Castle Pinckney in consequence of a sandbank which, under the name of Middle Ground, divides it into two unequal passes, the widest of which is at the south. At the upper end of the bay, at the junction of the two rivers, Ashley and Cooper, which empty their waters into it, stands the city of Charleston, once rich and prosperous, but now existing only for the war and through the war. Her wharves were no longer frequented except by blockade-runners, which chiefly brought her arms and ammunition, and whose arrivals the increase of the Federal fleet had for some time rendered much more rare. Too far from the entrance to be reached by the projectiles of the enemy, she was near enough for her inhabitants to see the struggle which

The Vaughn brigade was to follow the latter, raising the reinforcements intended for Bragg's army to eight thousand men. It was only on the 16th of April that intelligence received from Memphis made Pemberton aware of the real movements of his adversary. The orders he had given were countermanded, but much valuable time had been lost. General Pemberton's report to Adjutant-general Cooper, from Meridian, Miss., November 1, 1863.—Ed Between the 8th and 12th of April two divisions of McClernand's corps had arrived at Smith's plantation and New Carthage. But during this time the waters of the Mississippi had fallen, leaving the Roundaway Bayou, which a few days before seemed to afford a pass easily navigable, almost dry. The works in the Duckport trench were abandoned, and it was found necessary to construct across the marshes and muddy channels adjoining the bayou

he north, extends his lines as far as the Cashtown road; and, as his right at this point is placed at about two hundred and fifty yards in advance of Cutler's left, he has drawn up this right triangularly, or en potence, making it face Oak Hill. Cooper's battery, posted behind the ridge occupied by Meredith so as to enfilade the entire slopes of Seminary Ridge from south to north, batters Cutler's front from a distance of about one thousand yards. Iverson's attack falls upon Robinson's two brigades; but, whilst the latter check him in front, Cutler, supported by Stone's fire and Cooper's guns, emerges from the wood and takes him in flank. The small Confederate force makes a vigorous defence, but is almost annihilated, leaving a large number of men upon the fatal threshold of the wood where it had become engaged, together with about one thousand prisoners—that is to say, two-thirds of its effective force—in the hands of the Unionists.
