New Bern (North Carolina, United States) (search for this): article 7
han all, it is a cruel injustice to two officers--Generals Hunter and Foster themselves. If Hunter was capable of administering the Department of the South, why send Foster here to gather Israelis which belonged to him alone; and if it were not intended for Foster to remain, why rob him of the flower of the North Carolina army? I am informed that he brought with him here the best regiments under his command — regiments like the 14th Connecticut and 9th New Jersey, the herbs of Roanoke and Newbern — whose history is inseparably connected with victory in the Old North State. Again, some of the regiments are splits up — part being here at Port Royal, part at the House River, whilst the force remaining at the latter place is reduced to numbers which render offensive operations next to impossible. What has Foster done that he should thus be started on a fool's errand; and why was it attempted to supplant Hunter at the very moment when his military abilities could be made useful? A<

to my purpose to argue whether Ericsson or Timbey be the inventor of that now famous "Yankee cheese box," the turret; apart from that grand feature in these vessels, a Monitor possesses qualities bordering on the marvelous an adaptability of means to the end unexampled in naval construction. From stem to stern she is crammed with strange devices; she combines strength with lightness, with solidity, space with but limited capacity. And to these semi invisibility! Stunning on the pier at Hilton Head, it is well-nigh impossible to make out any one of these vessels across the harbor, whilst a miserable fifty ton schooner, or leg-of-mutton sail boat, stands up perfectly defined to the naked eye. When in motion, the spectator on shore sees nothing but a tower and smoke stack following each other on the water; the holt is down even in smooth weather; and if the Monitor approach in land, a slight, strait line of foam or ripple — similar to that on the edge of a shoal — is all that marks th
Charleston Harbor (South Carolina, United States) (search for this): article 7
From Port Royal — a Chapter about the Monitors. We make some interesting extracts from the Port Royal correspondence of the New York World: Port Royal, S. C., Feb. 25, 1863. We have been waiting since the 1st instant for the iron clads to arrive. Two more only are now due. Our iron-clad navy will soon have full and complete control of Charleston harbor. The health and spirits of the troops are good, and everything indicates success. The requirements of the public service, in addition to my own desire not to say anything which may conduce, however remotely, to the benefit of the rebels, prevent my giving your readers a full description of the iron-clads now in these waters. Our antagonists have shown an amount of prudence and inventive capacity in this war for which few were, until lately, disposed to credit them; and although it is almost an impossibility to imagine any engine of destruction more nearly perfect in all that constitutes offensive and defensive

Minnesota (Minnesota, United States) (search for this): article 7
The provinces of those ten engines ace as follows: two work the propeller, two ventilate the ship, two condense water for the crew, two turn the turret and two function the pumps. Sitting in the Captains cabin, or standing on the deck no one would suppose that any machinery is on board; all the ten engines perform their several duties with an entire absence of noise, and mile after mile is traversed without any of the motion so palpable in other vessels. When frigates like the Wabash and Minnesota roll unpleasantly in the sea, the iron box Monitor floats solidly in the waters, her decks lovingly embraced by the caresses of Neptune. Ventilation has always proved as difficult a question on shore as adopt. The art was lost with the ancient Romans. Ericsson has found it. No house on a bill is batter ventilated than the close metal chests called Monitors; in hot weather they are cool; in cold, warm — a mental, equable, temperature permeating the atmosphere throughout. This will a

rt Sumter showed that the rebels had removed their lower lier of guns, and placed them en barbetts, doubtless with the intention of destroying our iron clads by means of plunging shot. All these have been foreseen, and others also to which it would not be proper to refer. Torpedoes, sunken ships piles rocks, and all the curious gear used to close harbors, will be of little avail. You will discover, within the next two or three weeks at furthest, that this delay in commencing operations has been very usefully employed by at least one branch of the service; but this is certainly no reason for the delay having occurred. Charleston, anyhow, will fall; but it ought to be in our hands at the present moment. The news of the Ninth Army Corps being at Fortress Monroe has led many to expect the appearance here of Gen. Burnsides. His appointment to command the forthcoming operations would hugely please both the army and navy, and quickly lift the former from its present depression.
