--The Secretary of War
received Monday evening another dispatch from Major Anderson
, dated Feb. 28. He contradicts the statement that President Davis
had been to Charleston
He says that the report that he had been sick is without a particle of foundation.
He is in good health, as is also his little band of soldiers.
Affairs in Charleston harbor
are arriving at a point when further delay on their part will be impossible.
Their extensive works of defence and attack are nearly if not quite completed.
The feeling between the authorities and himself continues to be friendly, and he is allowed all the facilities that he could expect.
Fresh provisions and marketing are supplied in abundance.
He experiences no difficulty in sending or receiving his mall matter.
