Notes of the War. The Northern newspapers are filled with accounts of the great naval battle in Hampton Roads, and it will have been observed, by the dispatches published yesterday, that the Federals are forced to acknowledge that they have met with a "deplorable defeat and great loss." The first official announcement of the event was as follows: Washington, March 9, 1862.--The following was received to-night by Major-General McClelian from Gen. Wool, dated Fortress Monroe, at 6 o'clock this evening: Two hours after my telegraphic dispatch to the Secretary of War last evening, the Monitor arrived. She immediately went to the assistance of the Minnesota, which was aground, and continued so until a few moments since. Early this morning she was attacked by the Merrimac, Jamestown, and Yorktown. After a five hours contest they were driven off, the Merrimac in a sinking condition. She was towed by the Jamestown, Yorktown, and several smaller boats, towards Norfolk, no d
Late from the North. We received last night a copy of the Philadelphia Inquirer, of the 11th inst., which gives full accounts of the recent battle in Hampton Roads, as reported by the Federals. Official Dispatch. U. S. Steamer Roanore, Hampton Roads, March 9, 1862. To Hon. Gidcon Welles, Secretary of the Navy: I have the honor to inform you that yesterday, at 1 o'clock, one of the look-out vessels reported by signal that the enemy was coming out. I immediately ordered the Minnesota to get under weigh, and as soon as the two tugs appointed to tow this ship came alongside -ripped our cable. The Merrimac was soon discovered passing out by Sewell's Point, standing up toward Newport News, accompanied by several small gunboats. Every exertion was made by us to get all the speed on the Roanoke that the two tugs were capable of giving her, but in consequence of our bad steerage, we did not get ahead as rapidly as we desired to. The Merrimac went up and immedia
War Matters. We copy the following summary from the Norfolk Day Book of yesterday: Lieutenant Worden. This Federal officer in command of the Ericsson Battery, Monitor, during the late engagement in Hampton Roads, did not receive the injuries to his eyes from pieces of cement, as represented by the New York Herald in an item given by us yesterday; but, as we learn through a source which we are not at liberty to mention, received the same from fragments of shell from the Virginia, w forces were being pursued by their cavalry. The reader may believe as much of this statement as he chooses. We opine, however, that he will not believe much of it when we tell him that the same paper also claims the recent engagement in Hampton Roads as a victory for their side. Federal falsehood. We have the authority, through the 1st Lieutenant of the French corvette, and also the French Consul of this city, on the part of the commander of that vessel, to state that the paragra
The late Midshipman Wm. C. Hutter. --This gallant and accomplished young officer, who was killed in the naval engagement in Hampton Roads on the 8th inst., was born in the neighborhood of Lynchburg, Va., where his parents and family now reside, and had attained only his eighteenth year. He entered the naval school at Annapoils in the fall of 1859, and was progressing rapidly in the studies of his profession, when by the Virginia act of secession, superinduced by the aggressive policy of the Lincoln Government at Washington, he was called to the service of his native South. He paused not a moment; chivalrous by nature, and happily endowed with talents a dapted to his aspirations, he entered the service of the Confederate Navy, and eagerly sought that distinction and glory to which his courage and patriotism prompted him. He was on board the Confederate gunboat Raleigh at the battle of Roanoke Island, where he behaved most gallantly, and had a narrow escape with that vessel thro
