t point the troops will be concentrated.--Working detachments are busily employed in making up, according to military usage, hay, oats and strores of every description for embarkation. Companies C and F, Third regiment of infantry, have received orders to be ready at a moment's notice to embark; destination not stated. The first move will be on board the Powhatan, which is taking in war materials and large quantities of supplies for the subsistence of the troops. The Harriet Lane, (United States revenue cutter,) with a full complement of soldiers and marines, sailed from Quarantine yesterday morning, but returned to the city last evening. Rumor indicates that she will be sent to Fort Pickens. At ten o'clock last night, says the N. York World, our Army and Navy Reporter returned from a visit to all the forts at this station. There is not the slightest doubt that, to-morrow or Sunday, a large force of army soldiers will leave for some unknown destination.--The garrison of F

rs employed on board of her were reinforced by the crew, lately detached, who assisted in getting in the various necessities for a special cruise, and were pushing forward the general preparations. Even while they were at dinner on board the North Carolina, hands were put on to replace them in hurrying up the ship. A Washington dispatch to the New York Tribune, Thursday, says: No disgnise is affected in regard to the sending of supplies to the vessels-of-war and Fort Pickens. They a his headquarters on Governor's Island. It is also reliably reported that Major Johnson, who is on duty at this post, has resigned his commission rather than continue the warlike preparations now in progress. Major Holmes is a native of North Carolina, and has been in the service thirty-one years. He has distinguished himself on various occasions, and has always enjoyed the confidence of the War Department. His resignation was totally unexpected, and, occurring at such a crisis as the pre

Charleston Harbor (South Carolina, United States) (search for this): article 7
either side of the forward deck were erected seventy-two horse stails, for the use of the animals belonging to the mounted artillery. The hold was full of breadstuffs and ammunition, and the berths in the lower sleeping deck were fitted up with bedding sufficient to accommodate eight hundred men. The monster tanks of the ship, together with fourteen large casks, were filled with water sufficient to last the voyagers at least six weeks. On the table of the cabin were the charts of Charleston harbor, and some points on the Florida coast, which were delivered at the Quartermaster's office on Friday, as noticed in the Express. The Army and Navy officers are making no preparations for a prolonged stay of their steamers, wherever they are to go. The coal taken in for "the round trip," is enough to bring them back. No coal transports have been engaged, but, on the contrary, both the War and Navy Departments have declined transport ships to-day. The inference from this is,

As yet these supplies have not reached their intended destination, and thece have arrived at Florida, while other divisions are daily expected there. Fort Pickens is, therefore, the supposed rendezvous of the drafts of United States troopsreturned to the city last evening. Rumor indicates that she will be sent to Fort Pickens. At ten o'clock last night, says the N. York World, our Army and Navy Re is affected in regard to the sending of supplies to the vessels-of-war and Fort Pickens. They are ample for present and future necessities. Instructions have alsolarge force for a destination as yet unknown, but generally understood to be Fort Pickens, Major Holmes, Commander-in-Chief of all the U.

Major Anderson's supplies are fast getting exhausted, and they must be renewed, or he must be withdrawn, or starvation and surrender are inevitable.--These are the alternatives presented. Offers have been made to the Government to introduce supplies, but they are attended with risks which may well cause hesitation. The golden opportunity was lost when the Star of the West turned back.
