The Daily Dispatch: November 7, 1863., [Electronic resource], The disagreement among the Yankee commanders off Charleston — An Expose of the quarrel. (search)
lies at the bottom of what of failure has thus far characterized the siege, and of all the delays which have drawn it out to the breaking of the popular patience. To pass over all other history of the change of naval commanders before Charleston, the assignment of Dahlgren to work his own guns against the city and its defences was a policy of necessity as well as of justice. He went down and took command, and then struck hands with Gillmore on the bargain that the army should take Morris Island, reduce Fort Wagner and the works on Cumming's Point, and from that position knock Sumter to pieces with Parrott guns, or silence its fire; and, this being done, that the navy should anchor its iron clads off the wharves of Charleston. Gillmore has performed his part of the bargain. Dahlgren has not performed his. Why? the country asks. For two reasons: 1. For want of range in the navy guns. 2. From a "misunderstanding" between him and Gillmore. This misunderstanding is of
at Fort Sumter: On Friday night a detail, chiefly from the Washington Light Infantry, was stationed in the eastern barracks of Sumter, there to be held in readiness in case an assault should be made. Although the fort was subjected to the usual nightly bombardment, which, though light compared with the bombardment of the day, has hitherto been of a sufficiently heavy character, no casualties occurred until a quarter-past four on Saturday morning. At that hour a Parrott shell from Morris Island struck the iron girdle which supported the calling of the portion of the barracks to which we have alluded, causing it to fall in and to crush thirteen men under its ruins. The names — some of which will be recognized as those of well known and much esteemed young men of this city — will be found appended to this report. The bodies were brought to Charleston on Saturday night and interred on Sunday, the funeral-ceremonies being attended by a large number of sympathizing friends and cit
Charleston through a glass. --A correspondent of the Baltimore American, writing from the fleet off Charleston, says: Lying well up, nearly opposite Fort Wagner, we have, across the narrow part of Morris Island, so full a view of Charleston that I have studied the aspect of the city until it has grown familiar to me. We can see the shipping, what there is of it, at the wharves; the plying of one or two small steamers to and fro; trace the streets up from the battery, and almost fancy we see the people moving in them. The tall steeples of Grace, St. Michael's and Christ's churches have grown accustomed sights, and those in the fleet who have been familiar with Charleston in other days point out prominent buildings, and speculate as to the fate of old friends whom the war has swept into the vortex of treason and disloyalty. But, though Charleston is thus near to us, the same glass that seems almost to place it within our grasp shows to us Sumter, ruined yet defiant; the th
