derson. Charleston,April 17.--Previous to Major Anderson's departure in the Baltic for New York, courtesies were exchanged between him and the principal officers of the Southern army. Major A. was received on board the Baltic in a most enthusiastic manner. Hearty cheers were given by the crew, every officer uncovered as he went up the side, and when the American flag, which, with the Confederate flag was hoisted on the Isabel in compliment to Major Anderson's bravery, was hauled down, and the flag of Fort Sumter run up to the masthead of the Baltic, amid the smoke of cannon, Major Anderson bowed his head and wept. After the salute, the Harriet Lane led off, followed in line by the Pocahontas, Pawnee and Baltic. The scene was impressive and beautiful. The Baltic had been slightly injured by a collision with the Pawnee.
