profit by the example set in this guerilla movement. The Savannah News comments with some bitterness upon the capacities and conduct of our officers in command in Florida, but makes an exception in favor of Colonel Dowd of the Mississippi regiment. We copy the following additional particulars from the same article: In despite of these adverse circumstances, a brilliant action was performed by a company of Colonel Davis's First Florida Cavalry. This company, commanded by Captain William Clarke, took position on a bluff on the St. Mary's river, and waited the approach of a Federal gunboat. As they approached, a man at the masthead, espying Clark's company, cried out, "Here are the damned rebels." "Yes," said Clarks, "here we are!" With that he raised his rifle, and the lookout dropped dead on the deck from his lofty perch. Clark's men then gave three cheers, fired a volley, and twenty-five or thirty of the Federals were billed and wounded.--The gunboat not being able to c

The evacuation of Fernandina was conducted very badly, and much was lost owing to the inefficiency of the Colonel in command. Ex-Senator Yules, President of the Florida Railroad, was untiring in his efforts to save the property of the citizens. He was the last man to leave Fernandina, and was on the train that was fired on. He escaped by great efforts, and projected an expedition on Monday night to bring off the train that had been left, which would have been entirely successful had not the railroad bridge been set on fire by order of Col. Hopkins, in command, just as the train reached it. All the Florida troops need to insur

Firing was kept up on both sides for some time, but with no injury to our men. How the Yankees fared on this, their second. visit, could not be ascertained; but it is presumed they were satisfied to retrace their steps, without waiting to find out what success they met with.

The enemy were not in the city but on board their vessels in the harbor--Eight Yankee soldiers were engaged gathering oysters within musket ra ge from the bank, and the temptation induced one of our men, a printer, belonging to the Jackson Artillery, who had accompanied the expedition, to pull trigger on them and killed one of the party.

At last accounts a battle was being fought on the mainland between the Federalists. 8,000 strong, and our forces, numbering about 2,000. There is no doubt that we shall take the whole Federal force, if Gen. Trapier does not order a retreat. Such are a few items we have gathered from those recently from Florida. We forgot to mention that the steamer St. Mary's, Captain Freeborn, is safe in the St. John's river. It is said she has been taken far up that river and there sunk by her gallant Captain. Had it not been for the sagacity of Captain Freeborn, the St. Mary's would have been taken on Sunday morning, when the first Federal steamer made her appearance, flying a French flag in distress.--It was proposed to him to go out to the assistance of this pretendedly distressed steamer. Captain Freeborn took a good look at her through his glass, and quickly observed that he was not to be caught in
