To all intents and purposes the river is now closed, and the project of establishing mortar batteries on the Maryland side to shell the Confederates out of their works is not likely to be realized without some hard fighting. As affairs stand, it would be impossible for the latter to send over an army into Maryland without interruption, but the arrival of the flotilla from New York and Baltimore at Fortress Monroe, may tempt the Federalists to divert it, or part of it, to make a descent and turn the batteries, covered by the
