This, together with the fact that the stone fleet had been sunk in the channel, leaving only the Maffits channel open, and not knowing how far even that was obstructed, made me conclude not to attempt to run in. With an exhausted crew and short of coal, I put back and ran clear of the blockaders. At daylight on the 19th I made Captain Roman, steaming close in to land, and tracked up the beach, intending to try to enter Georgetown, S. C., but seeing the smoke of two steamers to the northward, I stopped the engines and made ready to destroy the vessel on their approach, as we were in a condition too exhausted to run successfully. Among Confederates. Fortunately the smoke of the blockaders disappeared on the horizon, and we steamed up to the entrance of Georgetown, but on going in we got aground on the bar. Sending out a boat to take soundings, I observed a boat pulling around a point of land inside filled with arm

ktown to drill soldiers at the navy guns covering the Williamsburg Road. Later he was ordered on similar duty at a naval battery on Spratley's farm, on James River, and thence to Charleston, S. C., as the third lieutenant of the C. S. S. Nashville, and made her cruise to England and back to Beaufort, N. C., where he was left in command of the vessel until her purchasers could send a crew to her. Upon the capture of Newberne by the Federals he ran the ship through the blockade and into Georgetown, S. C., and there delivered her to her purchasers. He was, in March, 1862, ordered to New Orleans as third lieutenant of the Confederate States Steamer Louisiana and commanded her bow division in the desperate fight with Farragutrs fleet in passing Forts Jackson and St. Philip. After this conflict, when the Louisiana was destroyed to prevent her falling into the enemy's hands, he was captured and sent to Fort Warren, at Boston. He was exchanged in August, 1862, and ordered as first lieut
n. The Charleston Courier of Tuesday, has the following items: Our cotton market has been relieved essentially from the embargo which the absence of vessels had for some time imposed, by the opportune arrivals of the last few days. Four vessels have been taken up for Europe, and engagements, we learn, have been made for Havre at 1 ½ and 2 cents for cotton, and $3.50 and $4 for rice; and for Liverpool at 11-16d. for cotton. The steamer Charleston, Captain Grantham, from Georgetown, S. C., reports that the officers attached to one of the batteries near the entrance of Georgetown, saw on Saturday and Sunday last, some distance off shore, what appeared to be a steam ship-of-war. She fired several guns which were distinctly heard. The Mercury announces the following military appointments: Under the bill to raise a division of 10,000 volunteer troops, his Excellency the Governor has made the following appointments: Gen. M. L. Bonham, of Edgefield, Major Ge

The ship Andover, from New Orleans, was seized under this act, the master fined $100, and the merchandize (being in excess of the amount stipulated by law) forfeited. In addition to the Andover, the following vessels were yesterday fined $100 each. Schooner B. W. Browne, Charleston, S. C.; schooner H. R. Coggshall, Jacksonville, Fla; ship T. S.

the evening of that day the steamship Huntsville, one of Lincoln's armed transports, appeared off this port, and no doubt delivered orders to the Niagara to proceed to some other station.--This is certainly an extraordinary mode of attempting a blockade, and is likely to bring up some questions for the Washington Government to settle, as we understand that a claim will be made for loss sustained by several owners of British shipping who had their vessels ordered off from this port by the Niagara, and by which occurrence they lost a valuable freight, and since which other British vessels have come in and obtained most valuable charters, the entrance to the port being unobstructed. We have heard from all points along the coast, from Georgetown, S. C., to Savannah, and nothing in the shape of a war vessels has been noticed for several days. From advices received through the Northern papers, it appears probable that the Niagara has proceeded to the Gulf, to look after privateers.

New York, June 15. --The schooner Savannah, a privateer, in charge of Midshipman Cook, arrived this afternoon, with the Stars and Stripes flying in triumph over the Secession flag. She was captured by the brig Perry, about sixty miles off Charleston. She had taken the brig Joseph, of Rockland, and sent her into Georgetown, S. C. The Savannah is armed with an 18-pounde pivot gun amidships, and was formerly a piliotboat. Her crew, consisting of 30 men, were in irons on board the Minuesota. Important from Missouri, St. Louis, June 16. --It is reliably stated that there are 2,000 State troops at Boonesville, well entrenched, with cannon, determined to resist the Federal forces. The Secessionists are said to have full away on both sides of the Missouri river from Boonesville to Kansas.--Besides t
The South. A letter to the Alexandra Gazette, from Georgetown, S. C., gives the following items: For weeks we have been in the midst of public dinners and meetings, Three last week, and speaking in the Court-House last night.--All are for secession. The vote of the ladies was taken in the meeting last night, and "to a man" they voted to be rather the widows of secessionists than the wives of "submissionists." There was a meeting here last week to nominate delegates to the Convention, and night were appointed a committee to make nominations, and out of the eight, three were ministers. We have a rifle corps here of 70 men, and our representative, P. C. J.

Arrest for treason. The Charleston Mercury, of Thursday, says: J. N. Merriman, Collector of the port of Georgetown, S. C., was on Monday last arrested by the people of Georgetown on a charge of treason against the State. A letter was found written by him and addressed to Mr. Buchanan, stating that he (Merriman) had just cleared vessels in the name of the United States, and that he would continue to do so. The letter calls upon the President to send a boat and men to collect the Federal revenue, and informs him of the progress made in the construction of the works near Georgetown, and promises to keep him
