We interrupted the recital of these operations on the shores of the Atlantic after the check of the Federals at Secessionville in the middle of June. All attempts against Charleston had been abandoned; the heat paralyzed the troops, and the fleet confined itself to the maintenance of the blockade, and to the protection of the posts which it was necessary to occupy athat this vessel was abandoned, she again came down the river after dispersing some of the enemy's troops, who did not even try to defend the batteries entrusted to their care. Meanwhile, Hunter, who had been recalled after the unfortunate Secessionville expedition, had been superseded by the brave and gallant Mitchell, a former professor of astronomy, now become a general, who had recently distinguished himself in his campaign through Northern Alabama. Having reached the headquarters at Bea

emmes with his officers proceeded to England, to await orders from his government, and an opportunity to ship on one of the new vessels, the equipment of which was no longer a secret to any one. In fact, the shipyards of Birkenhead were not the only ones at work for the Confederates. As early as the month of February, Mr. Adams had notified Lord Russell, minister of foreign affairs, that a ship called the Oreto, in process of construction at Liverpool, under the name of a ship-owner of Palermo, was, in fact, a war-vessel destined for the use of the Confederates. No notice was taken of this communication; and in the early part of April the Oreto had quietly left the Mersey with a large cargo intended for the Southern States. She first touched at Nassau, where she found Captain Maffit, who was to command her, a portion of her crew, together with cannon and ammunition forwarded from England for the purpose of fitting her out as a man-of-war. But as she was about to sail she was s

West of Old Topsail Inlet, the sand-bank upon which Fort Macon is built hugs the coast more and more, and forms a simple chain of sandbanks, separated by inlets opening in front of each of the small rivers that intersect the coast. The two most important of these water-courses are the Bogue River, at the mouth of which stands the village of Swansboroa, and farther west the New River, which must be ascended for a considerable distance before reaching the village of Jacksonboro or Onslow Court-house. On the 21st of August five or six vessels loaded with troops entered the estuary of the Bogue River; starting from Beaufort, some had steered between the downs and the mainland, while the others had taken the open sea, so as to re-enter by way of Bogue Inlet. Immense salt-pits, an earthwork and some barracks recently occupied were destroyed, and then the expedition returned to Beaufort after having ascertained that the Confederates were not in force in that direct

ative of military events for the year 1862 with a sketch of the operations of which the coast of the Confederate States was the theatre during the second half of that year. In the chapter on Roanoke, contained in the first volume, we gave an account of the operations of the Federals on the coast of North Carolina until after the capture of Fort Macon, on the 26th of April, 1862. Regarding those which took place along the other portions of the coast of the Southern States, the chapter on Pulaski, in the early part of this volume, brought us down to the end of June. We resume the narrative where those two chapters left it, following the division adopted in the report of the Secretary of the Navy, so as to classify the minor incidents that have no connection between them, and ending it, in a uniform manner, at the close of the year 1862. The naval or mixed operations will thus be grouped according as they may have taken place on the northern or southern part of the Atlantic coast,

ern Confederacy, embracing, as above, the military and financial laws and the measures relating to personal liberty. As we have said in the first volume, the representatives of the six States which had given the signal of separation had met at Montgomery in the early part of February, and had established a provisional government, the duration of which was limited to one year. Messrs. Davis and Stephens were elected on the 9th of February as President and Vice President of this government, and the assembly of delegates arrogated to itself full legislative powers, with the title of Provisional Congress. It held four sessions-two at Montgomery, from the 4th of February to the 4th of March, 1861, and from the 6th to the 11th of May; two at Richmond, from the 20th of July to the 2d of September, and from the 18th of November, 1861, to the 18th of February, 1862. During these sessions the number of States represented in this Congress increased from six to thirteen. The first six were Al

ard of which he was, that he discovered his mistake. With a view of repairing it, he tried to run his own ship across the prow of the Confederate, at the risk of having her cut in two. But despite the broadside he fired into the adversary at very close quarters, he did not succeed in stopping her. Without wasting time in replying, the Oreto, pursued by three of the enemy's ships, riddled with balls and leaking everywhere, succeeded at last in reaching the shelter of the friendly guns of Fort Morgan, under the protection of which she soon repaired her damages. The Washington government relieved Preble from command, to punish him for a neglect which, however, was perfectly excusable. But his successor was not more fortunate than he had been. At the end of December the Oreto, now called the Florida, fully equipped, better armed and furnished with a regular commission, again ran the Mobile blockade, and put out to sea under the orders of Maffit. Her depredations belong to the year

ost equal distance from these two points, near the village of Whitehall, another a little above the great railroad bridge, and a third, called Thompson's Bridge, between the first two. On the 15th, Foster advanced to within six kilometres of Whitehall, sending three squadrons and two field-pieces, under Major Garrard, to occupy that village. Garrard had orders to burn the bridge, so as to prevent the enemy from using it the next day to harass the flank of the column; but the Confederates, bgrew's brigade boldly advanced against him, it was stopped and driven back in disorder by a fire which inflicted severe losses upon it. This last engagement ended the conflict. Smith did not deem it prudent to pursue his adversary, who reached Whitehall on the 18th and Newberne on the 21st. The Federals had ninety men killed and four hundred and seventy-eight wounded; the Confederates, seventy-one killed and two hundred and sixty-eight wounded.
