The engagement at Sewell's Point.additional Particulars. [From the Norfolk Day Book, May 20th.] Yesterday (Sunday) evening, about four or five o'clock, a small schooner from below passed up, and when near the Monticello she fired a gun which passed over the battery. It is not known positively whether she fired at the schooner or at the battery; though it is asserted by some that the schooner was acting in the capacity of a look-out for the steamer, and had sent a boat alongside of her before she fired the gun. The idea is, that the schooner got as near the fort as possible, and sent a man up on her mast-head to spy into the fort, those inside being unconscious of what was going on, and deeming her a friend. However, that first gun was taken as a banter, and the battery answered it with as much spirit and rapidly as convenience would allow, the second ball, we understand, taking effect in her rigging, much of which was cut away. The firing continued for some considerable
Telegraphic Items from the North. New York, May 20 --The schooners Urbana and Horace from Texas, with 250 Federal troops, besides women and children, arrived at Havana on the 14th. Advices from Key West to the 14th state that Capt. Crae rebels at Cedar Keys and sent to Apalachicola, where Capt. Allen was hung by a mob, proves to be unfounded. Cairo,May 20.--The steamer Fred Lawrence, with a large freight of provisions from St. Louis for Padncah, Ky., has been detained here fll not be made complete by stopping all supplies of provisions nominally consigned to parties in Kentucky. New York,May 20.--The steamer De Soto, from Havana, passed on the 17th the frigate Niagara and the gunboat Huntsville, cruising on the Gueorge, of Baltimore, from Rio, and the Henry A. Didier, of Baltimore, from Saga, also arrived to-day. Philadelphian,May 20.--The Second Regiment of New York arrived here this evening, and marched along Chesnut street. They were received with gr
s said that 60,000 men were wanted along the banks of the Ohio, which fact precludes the idea that any very large force is coming upon Harper's Ferry from the West. At present the General Government does not seem to care much about that point, it being held that the seizure or detention there of articles in transit is working harm to the cause of the South in Maryland. The following dispatch from Washington, contains some information which will interest our readers: Washington,May 20th.--The United States transport steamer Freeborn arrived here this afternoon direct from Fortress Monroe, bringing dispatches to the Government. On her way up the Potomac she captured two small vessels and wharfed them at Washington Navy Yard. A passenger by the Freeborn stated that on Saturday two vessels from the fleet paid a visit to the vicinity of Sewell's Point, almost four miles from Fortress Monroe, where the Virginians were erecting batteries, and threw sundry shells at the wor
Additional Foreign News by the Canadian. Farther Point, May 20th. --The steamer North Briton arrived out on the 9th inst. The markets for American produce generally continued excited. It was reported in London that an American ship from Liverpool for New Orleans had been insured at fifteen guineas, and a ship from Shanghai for New York at 40 shillings. Mr. Foster gave notice that he should call attention to the desirability of not recognizing the insurrectionists. Mr. Horsford also postponed his motion relative to belligerent rights, Lord Palmerston having a dated that, pending the grave and complicated question now being considered the discussion of the subject at present was impossible. The French Government had presented a bill to the Corps Legislating for opening credits to the amount of 149,000,000 francs for great works of public utility. It is asserted that the force of the French Army is 75,000 more than was mentioned in the budget. The
Arrival of the Persia. St. Johns. May 20. --The steamer Persia, from Liverpool, May 11, has arrived. It was asserted in London, but not believed, that letters of marque, issued by the Southern Confederacy, had been granted to vessels at Liverpool and London. Lord Derby expressed the hope, in the House of Lords, that the forthcoming Government proclamation would give a warning that if Englishmen join the privateers their blood will be on their own heads. The London Times says the mediation of England might as well be offered to a hurricane as the United States.
