w guns to match our superior weight of metal as far as possible. The range of one of our guns was tried on Sumter on the 12th of August. The shell struck the parapet and knocked down a quantity of bricks, which fell on a steamer lying alongside, and broke off her smoke-stack. The regular bombardment was opened on Sumter at sunrise on the 17th, and continued without cessation, from day to day, until the 23d. At the same time the iron-clads moved up and took part; the monitor batteries Passaic and Patapsco directing their fire at the for, while the others engaged Wagner. When the firing ceased on the 23d, the fort was practically destroyed for all offensive purposes. The barbette guns were dismounted and buried up in the debris. The gorge-wall and sea-face were so badly breached that in many places the arches of the casemates were exposed. The lines were entirely destroyed, and it appeared a shapeless mass of brick and mortar. Our batteries were occasionally reopened until t
ing over into insulted, indignant and infuriated Maryland, there is but one word on every lip: Washington; and one sentiment on every heart: vengeance on the tyrants who pollute the Capital of the Republic! There was an exciting time in Passaic, N. J., on the occasion of raising the Stars and Stripes by the citizens of that locality. A handsome flag, donated by the scholars of the Passaic Academy, was raised upon that edifice, and one of much larger proportions was raised upon Passaic Heights. Eloquent and patriotic addresses were made by Rev. Marshall B. Smith and Thos. D. Haxsey, Esq., of Paterson. The Passaic Light Guard turned out in good numbers and saluted the flag with several rounds.--N. Y. Commercial, May 24. A correspondent of the Savannah (Ga.) Republican, writing from Montgomery, Alabama, says: It is feared that the blockade of Lincoln will seriously diminish the revenue, unless speedily raised, and if not, the government will have to resort to direct taxatio

They went up the Ogeechee on the 3d of March, the Passaic, Commander Drayton, leading. The obstructions in the river would not allow heothers were still farther off, and the mortar-boats were the most remote. The Passaic, Patapsco, and Nahant opened lire at a little past eight o'clock in the morninng. March 4, 1863. Then Drayton went up as near the fort as possible with the Passaic, for observation, shielded from the guns by the turret of his vessel.

n Forts Sumter and Wagner and Battery Gregg, the first in command of Colonel Alfred Rhett, the second under Colonel Lawrence M. Keitt, and the third under Captain Lesesene. Fort Sumter, lying at a distance of two miles and a half from Gillmore's batteries, was the chief object of attack, for it was necessary to make it powerless for offensive purposes before the siege of Fort Wagner might be prosecuted, without great loss of life. Upon it Gillmore's breaching-guns and the heavy ones of the Passaic and Patapsco (the monitors lying at a distance of two thousand yards) were brought to bear, and before night its walls had begun to crumble fearfully. The firing.was renewed every morning until the 24th, August when Gillmore sent a dispatch to Halleck, saying, I have the honor to report the practical demolition of Fort Sumter, as the result of our seven days bombardment of that work, including two days of which a powerful northeasterly storm most seriously diminished the accuracy and effe

to the stately, mailed Ironsides, in which he proposed to direct and share in the bombardment. By 9 A. M. next day, his fleet had all crossed the bar, and was in line along the east shore of Morris island, heading toward the most formidable array of rifled great guns that had ever yet tested the defensive resources of naval warfare. The iron-clads thus pitted against the tremendous ordnance of Fort Sumter and her satellites were the following: 1. Weehawken, Capt. John Rodgers; 2. Passaic, Capt. Percival Drayton; 3. Montauk, Com'r John L. Worden; 4. Patapsco, Com'r Daniel Ammen; 5. New Ironsides, Com'r Thos. Turner; 6. Catskill, Com'r Geo. W. Rodgers; 7. Nantucket, Com'r Donald M. Fairfax; 8. Nahant, Com'r John Downes; 9. Keokuk, Lt.-Com'r Alex. C. Rhind; with the gunboats Canandaigua, Unadilla, Housatonic, Wissahickon, and Huron in reserve, below the bar, ready to support the iron-clads should they attack the batteries on Morris island. The day was b
tered, Like the thunders of the sky: ”‘Neath the Stars and Stripes we'll rally, And for them we will die. Though the colors of the rebels Float on every Southern plain, We will tear them from the staff-head, And raise ‘the Stripes’ again. Though the enemies of Freedom Come forth in all their might, In the strength of God we'll meet them, And battle for the right. We will rally for our country, And for human freedom, too, And bravely meet the traitors ‘Neath the old Red, White, and Blue. ”The spirit of our fathers Revives in us to-day, For their valor and their courage Have not wholly died away; And the ingrate and the traitor Shall know their power again, Though the sands of Carolina Be covered with the slain. Though the blood of Northern freemen In sullen torrents flow, The valiant sons of Freedom Shall lay the traitors low.” For God, then, and your country-- For freeman and for slave-- Go, brothers, to the conflict! God bless the true and brave! Passaic, N. J. --N

the necessity of precision rather than rapidity of fire. Each ship will be prepared to render every assistance possible to vessels that may require it. The special code of signals prepared for the iron-clad vessels, will be used in action. After the reduction of Fort Sumter, it is probable the next point of attack will be the batteries on Morris Island. The order of battle will be the line ahead, in the following succession: 1. Weehawken, with raft, Capt. John Rodgers. 2. Passaic, Capt. Percival Drayton. 3. Montauk, Commander John L. Worden. 4. Patapsco, Commander Daniel Ammen. 5. New Ironsides, Commodore Thos. Turner. 6.
