s if he considered him an impostor. The writer was of a different opinion and wrote at once to Mr. Fox, Assistant Secretary of the Navy, urging him to hurry up the Monitor; but no one in the squadron seemed to anticipate any danger. Rear Admiral Goldsborough was in the sounds of North Carolina and could easily have left what was there to be done to the skill of the gallant Rowan, but he evidently apprehended no danger from the Merrimac or he would have returned at once to Hampton Roads. Oned. Tatnall remained for some hours in the Roads until finally in disgust he gave an order to Lieut. Jones to fire a gun to windward and take the ship back to her buoy. The above Confederate account does not agree with the report of Rear Admiral Goldsborough, who says: By direction of the President our vessels shelled Sewell's Point yesterday, mainly with a view to see the practicability of landing a body of troops thereabouts.

erman's object was to effect a junction with Grant, and by force of numbers bring the war to a close. He passed by Augusta and Charleston, since there was nothing to be gained by halting at either place. In his official report General Sherman says: Without wasting time or labor on Branchville or Charleston, which I knew the enemy could no longer hold, I turned all the columns straight on Columbia. From Columbia, after making a feint on Charleston, Sherman advanced to Fayetteville and Goldsborough, while preparations were making by the Federal Generals on the sea-coast to effect a junction with his army--one body of troops to advance from Wilmington, N. C., and the other from Newbern. All the troops that had occupied Charleston, Savannah, Augusta, Wilmington and other points along the coast, had united, and did all that was possible to impede Sherman's march; but, although the Confederate forces had swelled to a considerable army, they could not withstand the Federal advance, an
