He had built a house at Nanticook, Penn., before he left the place. Sickness drove him to Cincinnati. He had built him a convenient house there on Main Street, about half a mile from his first one. Ohio, he says, is a pleasant country, where he was contented, and where he expects after a short time to get all his family. One of them with his wife had come a few days before, and had bought a good farm about thirty-five miles distant. This member had sent letters to those left behind in Susquehanna, to come on, as he had looked out for them, as desired, and thought not to take his wife back. The father had a good run of work, and cash for it as fast as he could work Provisions, grain, money and work were very plenty in the country. As to family matters, his son Francis was a pretty good smith; a son Harry was coming on; his daughter Fanny was twelve years old; Ann, five and a half; William, two and a fourth; another child, three months. Again we hear of him from the City of Cin

hem, found Hilton Head designated as the place of rendezvous, and on the 4th of November a large number of them were already in sight of that point. Dupont arrived in the course of the morning with twenty-five vessels, after having put the Susquehanna about, opposite Charleston; and on that evening, when the sun went down behind the lower coast of Carolina, it shone upon the greater portion of the fleet riding peaceably on the bosom of a sea as smooth as a mirror. Most of the ships which hsels, which were formed in two columns, directed them to fight under steam, and to keep always moving, so as not to become a fixed target for the enemy. The first division, led by the Wabash, which carried the commodore's flag, comprised the Susquehanna and the five sloops-of-war. It was to pass first in front of Fort Beauregard, then to veer in column inside of the pass, in order to defile in front of Hilton Head, heading seaward, then to resume its original course, thus describing an ellip

Susquehanna, for a little more than twenty miles, winds through the valley of Wyoming. Abrupt rocks, rent by tributary streams, rise on the east, while the western declivities are luxuriantly fertile. Connecticut, whose charter from Charles the Second was older than that of Pennsylvania, using its prior claim to lands north of the Mamaroneck river, had colonized this beautiful region and governed it as its county of Westmoreland. The settlements, begun in 1754, increased in numbers and wealth till their annual tax amounted to two thousand pounds in Connecticut currency. In the winter of 1776, the people aided Washington with two companies of infantry, though their men were all needed to protect their own homes. Knowing the alliance of the British with the Six Nations, they built a line of ten fo

e came out disaabled, and for several hours was engaged in making repairs. Night came on, and we had a body of troops on shore, without an adequate supply of provisions and water for the night. We could not send them assistance in consequence of the heavy serf. All that we could do was to anchor close in shore, and protect them with our guns in case of a night attack. On Board Pawner, Aug. 29, 1861. At fifteen minutes past eight o'clock this morning, the Minnesota, Wabash and Susquehanna, having borne down from their offings to within a mile and a quarter of the enemy's large battery, the contest of yesterday was re-opened. The Susquehanna, having the left of the line of battle, opened fire from her heavy guns. The other ships immediately engaged the battery, throwing an immense number of the largest shells, many of which exploded in the battery, on the ramparts, breaching it badly and knocking the dust and splinters about in a terrible style. The ships kept up this in

ds in the statement; yet it will be nevertheless read with interest: Fortress Monroe, May 8.--Shortly before noon to-day the Monitor, Naugatuck, Seminole, Susquehanna, Dacotah and San Jacinto, in the order in which they are named, steamed up towards Sewell's Point, Captain Lardner, of the Susquechanna, in command of the expeds Point, and the Dacotah fired a shot towards Craney Island. A second shot from the Dacotah struck the beaca at Sewell's Point. Half-past 12 O'clock.--The Susquehanna moves up and takes the lead of the San Jacinto and Seminole. No answer from either of the rebel forts, and the Dacotah and Monitor are steaming up the Elizanetand fortward, but the Merrimac still lies under the guns of Craney Island. The Monitor is lying about a mile and a half from the Merrimac, and the Dacotah, Susquehanna, and Seminole, are still in the rear. The Naugatuck is also moving up towards the Monitor. The Minnesota, Arago and Vanderbilt have gone back to their anc
g channels, and constructing defensive works along the water approaches to all three cities. Reconnaissances were made recently by the Susquehanna and the gunboat Winona, which clearly proved the falsity of the late rumors that it had been evacuated. Both vessels were fired upon, but without receiving damage. Our harbor is filling fast with men of war of all grades, and the Admiral's fleet is already very formidable. We have now in port the Hartford, (flagship,) Brooklyn, Potomac, Susquehanna, Vincennes, Preble; the gunboats Cayuga, Kennebec, Kanawha, Westfield; the bark Gemsbok, and a lot of mortar schooners, transports, and other vessels. The Brooklyn is being repaired, and will soon be ready for action. New York Politics--one Union, one Destiny, and no Slavery. The Republicans of New York have commenced their mass meetings in favor of Wadsworth, their nominee for Governor. One was held in that city Wednesday night. The first speaker was Henry J. Raymond, the "li

Several vessels have been sent out in pursuit. A Washington telegram says: "The first information of the depredations of the pirate Tallahassee was received by the Navy Department, on the 12th instant, after office hours.--Secretary Welles immediately ordered the following vessels in pursuit, namely: Juniatta, Susquehanna, Eolus, Rontoosue, Dumbarton and Tristam Shaudy, on the 13th; the Moccasin, Aster, Zantic, R. R. Cuyler and Grand Gulf, on the 14th; and on the 15th, the Decotah and San Jacinto. These were all the vessels available in the navy." All these steamers, and more, starting out daily after one small vessel, short of coal and sadly in want of repairs! British neutrality! I stood on the deck, in the moonlight, thinking of the strange neutrality that works only against one side, and that,
