was inevitable, hastened over to Morris' Island, and was elected a member of the Palmetto Guard, fired the first gun from Stevens' iron battery. All honor to the chivalric Virginian! May he live many years to wear the fadeless wreath that honor placed upon his brow on our glorious Friday. Another noble son of the Old Dominion, who rebukingly reminds her of her past glory, was appointed on Gen. Beauregard's Staff on Thursday, bore dispatches to the General in command, from Brigadier-General James Simons in command of Morris' Island, during the thickest of the fight, and in the face of a murderous fire from Fort Sumter. Col. Roger A. Pryor, the eloquent young Virginian, in the execution of that dangerous commission, passed within speaking distance of the angry and hostile fortress. Despite the fierce and concentrated fire from Fort Sumter, the rival fortification on Sullivan's Island received but slight damage. Its Merlons stood unmoved, and are this morning in as good a co

oultrie then took up the tale of death, and in a moment the guns from the redoubtable Gun Battery on Cummings' Point, from Captain McCready's Battery, from Capt. James Hamilton's Floating Battery, the Enfilade Battery, and other fortifications spit forth their wrath at the grim fortress rising so defiantly out of the sea. Majen times, the balls had not started a single bolt. Anderson had concentrated his fire upon the Floating Battery, and the Dahlgren Battery, under command of Lieutenant Hamilton. A number of shells had dropped into Fort Sumter, and one gun enbarbette had been dismounted. The following cheering tidings were brought to the city bon batteries — the one at Cummings' Point — named for Mr. C. H. Stevens, the inventor, and the celebrated Floating Battery, constructed under the direction of Capt. Hamilton, have fully vindicated the correctness of their conception. Shot after shot fell upon them and glanced harmless away, while from their favorable position the

ire for some time at the dawn of day. It is reported they threw their shot-into the Harriet Lane, and that that steamer, having advanced as far as the renowned Star of the West Battery, was crippled by a well aimed shot, after which she deemed it prudent to give up the dangerous attempt, and turned her sharp bow to the sea. Stevens' Iron Battery played a conspicuous and important part in the brilliant, and, as far as our men are concerned, bloodless conflict, which has placed the 12th of April, 1861, among the memorable days. The calibre of its guns, its nearness to Fort Sumter, its perfect impenetrability, the coolness and skill of its gallant gunners, made this fortification one of the most formidable of Maj. Anderson's terrible opponents. The effect of its Dahlgren's and 64-pounders was distinctly visible at an early stage of the conflict.--Clouds of mortar and brick-dust arose from the Southwest wall of the fort as the shot hissed on their errand of death. Shot after shot t
