on, of which Col. Henningsen is colonel, but in consequence of his having charge of the infantry and artillery, under the immediate command of Lieut.-Col. Frank Anderson--who distinguished himself by the daring exploit of capturing Castillo, in Nicaragua, with forty-eight men, after Lockridge and Titus had failed with eight hundred--Capt. Imboden's, Capt. Lewis's, and Capt. Crane's University company were the companies engaged, with one six-pounder and one howitzer, under Major Gibbs, of South Carolina, Capt. McComas and Lieut. Pairo, of Richmond. The casualties were but trifling on our side, though we have to regret the death of Lieut. Howell, of Mississippi, (of Capt. McDonnell's company,) and that of one of Capt. Imboden's gallant rangers. Capt. Lewis was shot through the breast, but is doing well. Three privates were wounded in the above-named companies, one very severely. The only loss in the artillery was Lieut. Pairo's horse, shot under him. The enemy was obviously only feel
Handy to return to his ship, with his crew, to start his water, and, if necessary, at his own request, to throw overboard his small guns, for the purpose of lightening his ship, and to carry out his kedge with a cable to heave off by. At ten A. M. the enemy ceased firing, and withdrew up the river. During the engagement a shell entered our quarter-port, and one of the boats was stove by another shell. I have this morning succeeded in getting this ship over the bar. The McClellan and South Carolina are using all exertions to get the Vincennes off. The Nightingale is hard and fast ashore on the end of the bar. I have succeeded in reducing the leak of this ship so that our small engines keep the ship free. This is only temporary, and the ship will have to go to some place and have three planks put in. I have received rifle guns, and placed the 32-pounder on the forecastle and the 12-pounder on the poop. Could I have possibly managed this ship in any other way than keeping her head
assembled in the room of the Committee of Claims? I replied that I had received no invitation. I then proposed to go to the committee room to see what was being done. When I entered I found that little cock-sparrow, Governor Pickens, of South Carolina, addressing the meeting, and strutting about like a rooster around a barn yard coop, discussing the following resolution, which he was urging on the favorable consideration of the meeting: Resolved, That no member of Congress representing te he regretted to see men claiming to be Democrats organizing an opposition to Government, and giving evidence of sympathy with traitors. Mr. Thomas referred to the assistance rendered by the leading Whigs of 1832 to General Jackson, when South Carolina raised the nullification banner. Then Clay, Webster, and Adams, forgetting all that had induced them to oppose Jackson in his course toward the United States Bank, the National Road, and other prominent measures, readily rallied to his suppo
trodden by the traitorous foe: no horrid clash of arms has startled our homes with dismay; no desolation is within our limits; no armed soldier is here but to protect and defend the loyal. Peace is our condition, and none of our people are subject to the hazards of the contest but those who are patriotically giving themselves to their country's service for their country's defence. What a contrast to the sad fate of our misguided sister, Virginia! Through folly and crime, the war which South Carolina traitorously initiated she has brought almost exclusively within her borders, and sad, afflictingly sad, is the result — private grief and misery, individual poverty, and State bankruptcy, and the loss of the renown won for her by her former generation of good and great men. Let her example strengthen us in the resolve to remain true to patriotic obligation. Let it teach us how dear to us should be the fame of our good and great of the same generation, and how imperative the demands,

Smith, swinging his hat ov head with enthusiasm. Three cheers for South Carolina and the American flag! responded Capt. Drparts of Fort Walker. Our men were now on South Carolina soil, and over their heads proudly waved their forts and ran helter-skelter over the South Carolina soil back to the woods in the rear.

correspondent of the New York Herald, gives the following account of this capture:-- Fort Walker, Port Royal harbor, S. C., November 11, 1861. On Saturday noon last, in pursuance of the orders of Flag-officer Dupont, the gunboats Seneca, Lieoups of negroes, who were observed to gaze upon the novel sight of three war vessels bearing the Stars and Stripes on South Carolina waters, with curiosity, if not with lively fear. No whites could be seen, and no defences of any kind could be descraily. And these fat, sleek, well-to-do darkies are the favorite slaves of the wealthiest and largest slave-owners in South Carolina, where the institution is said to assume its mildest form, and where, consequently, the slaves are more contented andThese generally, however, remain, and some dozens have come into camp and have been set at work by the army. Truly South Carolina's day of reckoning has come. She has sown the wind; she is reaping the whirlwind. There is a singular fitness in st
ng great satisfaction at our loss at Bull Run and Leesburg. Our captain expressed much satisfaction at the gallant and efficient manner which Lieut. Fairfax, (a Virginian by birth,) and all the officers and crew under his command, displayed in the execution of this delicate and important duty, and called the particular attention of the Navy Department to it. After parting company with the Trent, we ran through the Santaren Passage, cruised to the northward along the shores of Florida and South Carolina as far as Charleston; our gallant captain, not satisfied with the important capture, fully determined to take part in the expedition against Port Royal, but, to the regret of all hands on board, we came too late. The Susquehanna and Alabama were off Charleston, and the Florida off Hatteras. After leaving Charleston Bay, we encountered strong head-winds, and our coal being exhausted, we put into Hampton Roads the next day, took in coal, and after battling forty hours with a severe north
but the day following I was relieved from my embarrassing situation by the South Carolina and McClellan. I trust, sir, that my conduct will meet with your entire ap wait until a rise of the tide. At early daylight of the 13th instant, the South Carolina, Commander Alden, came in, and I directed him to proceed, and, if possible, four rifled guns on board the McClellan, together with the long gun of the South Carolina, would keep the enemy at bay. At about 2 P. M., the Vincennes was got afloat, crossed the bar, and anchored near this ship, and the South Carolina was immediately despatched to Pass à l'outre, to guard that place until I could send him a reltly consented to his doing so, knowing that one of the steamers, either the South Carolina or Huntsville, would reach Pass à l'outre in advance of him.
