Charleston next to be attacked by Sherman.

The Baltimore American, commenting on Sherman's intended movements, says:

General Sherman's future movements may be easily divined. Charleston is too near and too coveted a prize to long escape his grasp. Lying at the end of a peninsula, between two rivers, General Sherman has only to place his army in front of it to insure its surrender. We have no doubt when the time comes it will be given up as quietly as Savannah has been, and that the citizens will emulate those of Savannah in the good order and quietness with which they will submit to an irreversible fate.
