The Late Fight off Mobtir Point.—For fear that the impression may get abroad that the Con federate naval foroe in the late fight off Mobile Point was in any manner equal to that ot the enemy, we beg to lay before our readers the fol lowing statement which we make on the authority of an officer well acquainted with the same: The Tennessee is an iron-olad, after the style of the Merrimac (Virginia,) mounting six guns. She has five inch plates on the sides, and six inches on the ends of hor inclined shield. Her b&ttery was two 7-inoh and four 6.42 Brooke rifles. The Gaines and Morgan were sbter ves> sels, with their engines (high pressure) vartiaUy protected by ten-inch iron plates; magazine not entirely below the water line. They each mount ed two banded 32-pounder rifles of 57 cwt., four smooth 32’s of 57 cwt. and four smooth-bore S2’s of 42 cwt. The Selma was formerly the steamer Florida, a packet between Mobile and New Or leans, had her boiler protoctcd by a plating of one inch iron, engines not protected. She mount ed four guns, a two 9 inch Dahlgren, one 8-inch shell gun, and one 32-pounder banded riile of 57 cwt. Tbe three wooden vessels are ^large side wheel steamers, .totally unfit for vessels of wear. It will be $een that we had reaMy but one war vessel, the Tennessee, to oppose three of the best Mississippi river monitors and Farragut’s splen did fighting fleet of wooden vessels, which have set all b&tteries and forts at defiance since May ’62. The presence of a fleet in Mobile Bay does not' jeopardize the safety of the city in the slightest degree. The heavy ships of Farragut’s fleet can not get ^thin twenty-five miles ot Mobile., and we ventiire to say that vessels of nine feet draft will soar^eV found in the neighborhood of the bona fide defences of that placa. It has been look ed upon as perfectly feasible for Fairagut to have passed the forts and entered the bay any dsjy du ring the past two years, and our authorities have acted Upon that belief by placing the batleries intended as the real defence in such position th*t they oannot be flanked or passed. There can be no impropriety in making these statements pub lic, as the New York Herald published the same with a diagram more than a year since. Savannah Repuhl'>can 'i V on . -ome i Hog- For a Ji'ot Between Soldier' ington —Th-?ro was q.iito Capitol Hill, \V^asbingtot' ht twenty or thirty soldiers from liiao' pital attacking a number of coaort j iaseD time the affair threatened to be serious, stones, ortekbata and crowbars being extensively used. FiaaJly a colored man got an axe and made an assault upon tho soldiers, hilling . ne and wonad- iug another, it is believed, mortally. The soldiers finally set fire to the shanties, and some half *ozen of them were burned. The police at last Bucoeedsd in ^[QioUtttg the riol^ aacd latde and Htruck tbe Tennchsoe amiuship.s The T^n nessoe and Hartford then got t=idc* by side, the former pouring full broadsides into the Hartford’n portholes, causing, as the True Delta says, a fear ful loss of life. Later the Lackawanna and others came up with Farragut, until the Tconessee sur rendered. The papers report that Admiral Buchanan’s leg will be saved. He told them he would be willing to die two minutes afterwards il he could have sunk the Hartford Lt. Comstock (Con federate,) and Lt Preston, (yankee,) are both re ported dead. The lat9 Kxploaioa nf'ar Petersburg—Ricu- ,MOND, Aug. 11—On Tuesday last the Ordnance Depot a^ ('ity Point exploded, killing a large numbt^r of yankee soldiers. Protn fhe Aojth. — Petkbsbubo, Aug 12.— Northern papers of the lOth have been received TJncfficial dispafcbed claim a rr^'af victory by Gen. Averili over the rebels utider Mcl^.tuslan-i and Bradley Johnson, on the 7th inst., near Moorfields, Hardy county, V''a. Gen. JohuHon and staff were captured hut escaped 500 to OOU prisoners were taken, and trains, color?, and smttM a^ms captured, Gens. Sherman and Tiiomas, says the N. i . Commeroiai, have telegraphed to Washington that Atlanta will certainly fail this wN;k. Gold is quoted at 254i. RiCHMctND, Au^ 12—Baltinjore papers of ytiaterday say that the yankee cavahy Live re oc cupied Martinsburg; that Sheridan'd forces are moving np the Shenandoah Valley agtiinet th«* rebels; and that on tbe aftrraoon of tho lOth skirmishing was going on lu miles Win chester. The yankee Sec’y of War, Sianton, ia s>aid to aave tendered his resignation, whicli was j.romptly »ccept«'d Other changes in ihe Cabinet are re ported. The eampaifrn has opfued actively in Florida, and is said to be prosecuted with great bueccda under Birney, destroying the railroad, burning bridges and committing other depredations. From Pete'gburg.—A quiot deeper than that of the several preceding days, reigned alojg the lines yesterday. If we may except a few stray shots, Grant has not thrown any shells in the cor porate limits lince last Monday week. We learn from the beat authority that the ent'- my has contracted his lines considerably on his left—our right—and has withdraws hia piokets some distance from the points recently occupied bv them. The enemy is also seen in greatly diminished foroe on our right, which strongly indicates that he has withdrawn troops from that direction. Everything indicates thal the great vankec army, which but recently prosecuted offensive operations sf> vigorously, are now throwing them selves on the defensive. This is evident, cot only in tho oon^rmation of tli«ir Ji»d« thoj: 80 recently and so boldly extended, but fn ti*e diminished numbers which they present in cur front, and the, at leas^, partial cessation of active movements but lately observable. Petersburg JL'xpresf, lit A. From the Upper Potomac.—Gei». l^arly reports officially on the 8th instant, that Gen McCaus- land had arrived in Hardy county, hav'tig sus tained very little loss, tha statement iia the Yankee papers of his defeat, on which the rumtrs of Wednesday were ba«ed, being untrae DIa- patches received iu this city yesterday from Gen. Bradley Johnpon’s command, report his safe re turn. We think there is no doubt that every thing is progressing favorably for the Confederates in the Valley.—Richmond Sentinel^ llfA. The Burning of Chambfr$burg.—WiNCHM- TER, Aug. 5.—This mornlDg our army re-crossed the river into Maryland, whether towards Balti more or the Pennsylvania line I can’t say. Gen. McCausland has returned with his foroe to Rom- ney; he was sent to Chambersburg to levy a con- tribation of $100,000 to remunerate Hunter, Boteler and T/ee, for the loss of their houses, burnt two weeks since by Hunter's orders; the amount not being paid, the town was fiired, and 254 houses burnt. This may open their eyes to the fact that two oan play at this game. It was a sad alterna tive; but nothing else was left us. To quietly submit to the one-sided game longer, would have been cowardice. Winchester may pay tbe penal ty. If flo Harrisburg must come next; and all the thriving towns and fine barns along the border. In one day we oan destroy more than they cm in a month. We have few or no towns within their reach, that they have not already partially de stroyed, whilst the entire Ji)order has been desola ted by them—houses, barns, fences and ail destroy ed. The order for the burning of Chambersburfir, in cas90t their refusal to pay tho amount(9100,000 in gold) was signed by Early.— Cor Rich. Whig. Frrm Charits ilxty.—We are informed that on the 6th instant, a Oonfederate battery opened on the enemy's gunboats at Wilcox's wharf, which was replied to by the enemy The battery thon moved to another position higher up the liver. N"xt day the enemy dropped down near Swin- yard’s wharf, and deliberately shellod a house oc cupied alone by ladies, children and scrva-its. Tho family, consisting of ^ght persons, bad left the dining room bnt a few seconds, when a shell ex- pLided directly under the room, tearing every thit]g to pieces. Tho negro cook was the only person wo ;^nded.—Richmond Sentin^f, 11 fA. The Y'lnkee Premie" Drunk—Hov. Theodore Tilton, editor of the New York Independent, pub- lishfs a long letter in his paper, in which he .states as an undeniable fact that Seward, at tho laie Baltimore Fair, was so drunk as to have dis grac'd himself and insulted his friendd. The L'^at Home Baming —Tho residence of the widow of Major John Seddon, brother of the Secretary of War, in Stafford county, was bumed by order of Butler, in retaliation *or the burning ot Montgomery Blair’s house, no*»r Washington. Kentuck\f.—Privite advices from Kentucky represent quite a rcvoliition in public sentiment pv-'tgrcMing in that Statu. Several prominent citizens, heretofore; Unionists, are now co-opa- rating with Ihe peace party. Tbe HarriBjuc^ (P*) Telegraph says that a Cona'ederate officer, taken prisoner in Chambers burg while McCaasland’s forces were there, was ^^liternlly trampled to death" by the citizens. ,ThL>, as well as tho buxBiag of towns^ ia aa W 6W be Tfllitiieidl • 77u U Vs’e couut •trail*:-! : be tiave mor ‘ b'.'i' t.ut gttue fifty in t‘ gt3at:ralr liTet ■ iitU.t
