he lack of official support and opposition of many friends, proceeded at once to demonstrate its sufficiency as best he could without the use of proper mechanical resources. His trial experiments to explode under water were made with minute charges of powder and submerged in an ordinary washtub in his chamber at the house of his cousin, Robert H. Maury, on Clay street, and the tank for actual use, with their triggers for explosion and other mechanical appliances for service, were made by Talbott and Son, on Cary street, under their ready and intelligent direction. In the early summer of 1861 the Secretary of the Navy and the chairman of the Naval Committee of Congress and others, were invited to witness an explosion in James river at Rocketts. The torpedo was a small keg of powder, weighted to sink, fitted with a trigger to explode by percussion, to be fired, when in place, by a lanyard. The Patrick Henry gig was borrowed; Captain Maury and the writer got aboard with the torpe

gs with Spirits. He believes in Spirits and Spiritualism, and therefore ought to be excused for that silly letter to his dear friend down East. I learn, also, to-day, that the Rev. gentleman who officiated as Chaplain at Fort Moultrie, and who did not free to Sumter with Maj. Anderson, has been politely informed by Commander Dunivant, at Moultrie, to-day, that his presence is not particularly wanted on Sullivan's Island. His name is Harris, and hails, I believe, from Maryland. Lieut. Talbott has returned, and brought dispatches, it is said, for Maj. Anderson and Gov. Pickens. This would indicate that the two Governments are getting as thick as bed follows, and no one would rejoice more than your humble servant if this amiable mood would effect any good end; but it will not, and I happen to know that it is all "bagatelle." Lieut Hall is on a visit to New York, to see a "near relation," who is indisposed, and Lieut. Mead to see a sister, lying dangerously ill. You would
. Reports from Fort Sumter. The War Department has received advices from Major Anderson to the 7th instant. He writes in good spirits, and is fully prepared for any emergencies that may arise. He had not heard how the negotiations between the President and Col. Hayne had terminated.--He knew, however, for he had already been informed, what position the Administration would take in regard to the demands of South Carolina. He had received his instructions some time ago through Lieut. Talbott, and he has been preparing and arranging his plans accordingly. He expects to be attacked immediately after Col. Hayne's return. He says, judging from the activity of the people and the extensive preparations which are being made, that they will present a pretty formidable display, and make a most desperate effort to take the fort. He is fully prepared. In a very short time after the attack is made, the Government will attempt to throw reinforcements into Fort Sumter. They h
City Council. --The regular monthly meeting of this body was held at 4 o'clock yesterday evening. Present, Messrs. Saunders, Grattan, Glazebrook, Hill, Burr, Crutchfield, Scott, Richardson, Talbott, Haskins, Denoon, Greanor, Griffin. The usual reports from police officers were returned. The Committee on Police say they find nothing in them requiring a special report. They say they also have had under consideration the petition of Charles Y. Morriss and others, asking that they would designate some other place than their wharves for landing powder, and recommend the Council to reject the prayer of the petition. The Committee of Finance reported that they had had under consideration the petition of Wm. C. Allen, executor of O. Slaughter, to have refunded to him the sum of $232.55, paid as tax on money, and report that they allow $140.52 on account of taxes on property erroneously given in to the Assessor by him. The following resolution was adopted: Resolved
The City jail. --The city has employed Messrs. Talbott & Brother to line the cells of the jail with sheet iron, and do other things calculated to render the rickety old trap a secure place of deposit for offenders against the law. The Council had better order plans to be prepared for a new edifice. In the end it will be found that the money spent in repairs would suffice for the purpose. A considerable percentage of a certain class of our population — idle, dissolute friendless and homeless Bohemians — male and female, young and old, spend their valuable time in alternate visits to the alms-house and jail, and it is somewhat to be regretted that such valuable members of the body politic cannot be provided with a little work as a pleasant interlude to the existing order of eating the city's pork and beans without a quid pro quo. If a new jail were built, and a work-house were affixed, the operations of the correctional police would be undisturbed by a single drawback; but it is
Lieut. Talbott, mentioned in the dispatches as having been refused admittance to Fort Sumter by the South Carolina force, did not arrive here yesterday evening, on his return to Washington.
Guard your premises. --We learn that two of the most extensive iron foundries in this city — those of Talbott & Bro., and Ettenger & Edmond, on Cary street, and probably others — are left nightly without a guard or any other protection against the efforts of the evil-minded. People should exercise prudential caution in these time
recently commenced operations at the Tredegar Foundry. This manufactory makes those vulcanized India car-springs, which are so popular. It is needless to repeat what we have so often said of our iron foundries, steam and locomotive works, &c. Anderson & Co.'s rolling mills, railroad spike factory, (whose reputation is national, and which has supplied almost the entire South for years with spikes, as has the Archer foundry with railroad chairs,) their locomotive and steam engine works; Talbott's and Rham's extensive foundries, Pae & Sampson's do., Hunter & Co.'s foundry and steel works, and Jordan, Winn & Co.'s iron works. These, with others that might be named, constitute a manufacturing power in various departments of iron work, including all descriptions of railroad work, cannon and ball casting, &c., of which we may be justly proud. The times are now oppressive, and our manufactories are suffering to some extent; but as soon as the troubles in which we are now involved
City Council. --A regular monthly meeting of the Council was held in the Council Chamber yesterday afternoon, at 4 o'clock. Present, Messrs. Saunders, Hill, Burr, Scott, Howison, Griffin, Crutchfield, Richardson, Greanor, Denoon, Haskins and Grattan. Absent, Messrs. Glazebrook, (sick,) Anderson and Talbott. The minutes of the last meeting were read and approved. Col. Haskins, from the Commissioners of Streets, reported that they had obtained the condemnation of John Purcell's property, for opening 10th street, north of Clay, at the price of $1,755. The report was approved and adopted. On motion of Mr. Hill, the Committee on Police was instructed to bring in an ordinance empowering the Mayor to prevent the influx and settlement in the city of all paupers, vagrants, persons who have no visible means of support, and those whose presence may be dangerous to the peace of the city; and to defray the expenses thus incurred out of the Secret Police Fund.
