If she should be carried North for repairs, the work of months will be required to put her in a seaworthy condition. The villainy and treachery of the officers and men on board the Congress, in firing upon our gunboats while approaching after she had raised the whits flag, is denounced in strong terms. By this perfidiens conduct valuable lives were lost, and among them that of Lieut. J. L. Taylce, of Virginia, who died yesterday; Midshipman Hutter, who was killed in the action. Captain Buchanan, and Lieut. Minor, were also shot under the white flag. I am glad to state that they are both improving.

The reverse recounts the destruction of two of our old wooden sailing frigates by the rebel naval monster, the Merrimac, and two iron-clad rebel gunboats. The success includes the subsequent defeat of the whole rebel force, and the disabling of the Merrimac by our new Ericsson battery and iron-clad gunboat Monitor. The facts, as officially reported are these: The Merrimac, which is said to be commanded by Capt. Buchanan, late of the Washington Navy Yard, came out of Nor folk on Saturday morning, and, together with the rebel iron-clad gunboats Yorktown and Jamestown, steamed down towards Newport News, where the frigates Cumberland and Congress were lying. Singals were at once displayed for assistance from the steamers Minnesota, Roanoke and St. Lawrence. The frigates being sailing vessels were completely at the mercy of the monster Merrimac and her attendant iron-mailed gunboats. The Merrimac made an
