The fleet near Charleston. It is a significant fact that the immense fleet sent by Lincoln to reinforce Fort Sumter, did not dare to approach the scene of action, but left the gallant Anderson to his fate. So much for the inordinate boasting of the Black Republicans about their fleet and its "six thousand fighting men." We are heartily sorry that they did not venture on the fulfillment of their gasconading threats, but left a Southern officer to do all the fighting that has yet been done on their side. Not that we doubt the courage of Northern men, but before this war is ended it will be seen that one man fighting for his home is more than a match for two fighting against it.
