is seen from a ravine, just below the hill already mentioned, and at the foot of a smaller hill adjoining, and, by Thor ! a ball came whizzing just astern of us. The sound was most peculiar, resembling the sharp, shrill chirrup of a cricket. It was apparent that this was from a rifled cannon, perhaps from a field piece, which was seen being dragged up the hill but a little while before. The after gun — a short thirty-two pounder, served by Master's Mate Lee, under the direction of Lieutenant Cash--now opened fire for the first time, pitching shot right into the hill battery, but without doing much apparent execution, in consequence of the great distance and the height of the battery. All this time, it must be remembered, that the Freeborn was almost stem on to the batteries near the depot, and that the forward gun was trained sharp forward. A slight variation was, however, made now and then, by bringing the vessel nearer broadside of, and the gun to bear more amidships, so as

ot would be able to meet the exigencies of war, but a new calamity--one quite unexpected — has fallen upon us. On Thursday, the 16th inst. the inexorable river cut its way through the narrow neck of land which separates it from Lake Chicot. Since that time the water in the lake has risen at the rate of two feet per diem, so that, as we write, it is within a few inches of the bank. We are cut off from all land communication, and many plantations on the river and lake are materially damaged. Some planters are engaged night and day in erecting levees, and the greatest anxiety is felt as to the issue of this irremediable disaster. Those who have most suffered on the lake are: Judge A. H. Davies, Judge W. H. Sutton, E. S. Worthington, Mrs. G. Read, C. C. Stuart, and Johnson Chapman. We do not exaggerate in saying that these planters will suffer to the extent of $150,000. We learn that the river is rising rapidly, and that there is every probability of a general inundation.
