FORT PULASKI AS DESCRIBED BY MR.
RUSSELL OF THE LONDON TIMES.
Savannau, Geoiioia, May 1.
It is said that " fools build houses for wiso
men to lure in." B'a that true or not, it Is cer
tain that "Uncle Sam "has built strong places
for bis enemies to occupy. To-day I visited
Fort Pulaski, which defends the mouth of tho
Savannah river and the approaches to tho city.
It was left to take care, of itself, and tho Geor
gians quietly stepped into it, and have been
busied in completing its defences, so that it is
now capable of Btopping a (loot very effectually.
Pulaski was a Polo who fell in the defence of
Savannah against tbe British, and whoso mem
ory is perpetuated in the name of thq fort,
which is now under tho Confederate Hist, and
garrisoned by bitter foes of the United States.
Among our party were Commodore Tutimll,
whoso nume will bo familiar to English ears in
connection with the attack on the Peiho forts,
where tho gallant American showed tho world
that ' blood was thicker thin water: " Briga
dier General Lawton, in command of the forces
of Georgia, nnd a number of naval and military
officers, of whom many liad belonged to the
United States regular service. It was Btrange
to look at such a man us the Cotnmodere, who
for forty-nine long years had served under the
Stars and Stripes, quietly preparing to meet his
old comrades and friends, if needs be, in the
battle-field ; his allegiance to the country and
to the flag renounced, his long servico flung
nwav. his old tics and connection severed
and all this in defence of the sacred right of
rebellion on the part ot " Ins state." lie is
not now, nor kus he been for years, a slave
owner; ull his family and familiar associations
connect him with the North. There are no
naval stations on tho Southern coasts, except
one at Pcusacola, and ho knows almost no ono
in tho South. He has no fortune whatever;
his fleet consists of two small river or coasting
steamers, without guns, and, as ho said, in talk
ing ovtr the resources of the South, " My bones
will be bleached mauy a lung year before tho
Confederate States can hopo to have a navy."
" Stato rights I " To us tho question is simply
inexplicable or absurd. .And jet thousands of
Americans sacrifico all fur it. The rivor at
Savannah is broad as tho Thames at Graves
end, and resembles that stream very mu h in
tho color of its waters and the level nature of
its shores. Rice fields bound it on either
side, as far down as the influence of tho fresh
water extends, and the eye wanders over a
flat ex pause of mud and water, and green osiers
and rushes, till its search is arrestpd on tbe
horizon by tbe untuning lino ot forest. In the
fields hero and there are the whitewashed
square wooden huts in which tho slaves dwell,
looking very like tho beginnings of the camp
in the Crimea. At ono point, u small fort, cov
ering a creek by which gunboats could get up
behind Savannah, displayed its ''garrison" on
the walls, and lowered its flag to salute the
small blue ensign at tho fore, which proclaim
ed tho presence of tho Commodoro of tho
naval forces of Georgia on board our steamer.
The guns on the parapet were mostly field
pieces mounted on frameworks of wood, in
stead of regular carriages. There is no mis
take about the spirit ot these people. They
seize upon every spot of vantage ground aim
prepare it for defence. There were very few
ships in the river; tho yacht Camilla, better
known as the America, the property of Capt.
Densy, and several others of those few sailing
under British colors, for most of the cotton
ships are gone.
Alter steaming down the river about twelve
miles, the sea opened out to tho sight, and on
a long, marshy, narrow island near tho bar,
which was marked by the yellowish surf, Fort
Pulaski threw out tho Confederate flag to the
air of tho Georgian 1st of May. The water
was too shallow to permit tho steamer to go up
to the jetty, and the party lauded at the wharf
in boats. A guard was on duty at the landing
tall, stout young fellows, in various uniforms,
or in rude mufti, in which tho Garibaldian red
"shirt and felt slouched hats predominated.
They were armed with smooth-bore muskets,
(date 1851,) quite new, nnd their bayonets,
barrels, and locks, were bright and clean. The
officer on duty was dressed in the bluo frock
coat dear to tho British Linesman in days gone
by, with brass buttons, emblazoned with the
arms of the State, a red silk sash, and glazed
kepi, and straw-colored gauntlets.
Several wooden huts, with flower gardens in
front, were occupied by the officers of the gar
rison ; others were used as hospitals, and were
full of men suffering Irom measles of n mild
type. A few minutes walk leu us to the fort,
which is an irregular peutogon, with the baso
lino or curtain face inlands, and the other
faces vasematcd and bearing on the approaches.
Tho curtain, which is simply crenellated, is
covered by a Redan surrounded by a deep ditch,
inside tho parapet of which are granite plat
forms ready for tho recoplion of gnns, Tho
parapet is thick, and the scarp nnd counter
scarp are faced with solid masonry. A draw
bridge affords access to the inter.or of the Re.
''dan, wheuce tbe pate of the fort is approached
across a deep and broad moat, which is crossed
by another drawbridge.
As tho Commodore entered the, Redan, the
guns of tho fort broke out into a long salute, and
the band at tbe gale struck up almost as lively a
welcome. Inside, the parade presented a scene of
life and nnimntion very unlike the silence, of the
city we had left. 'Men were busy clearing out
thu casemates, rolling awny stores' aiitl casks of
ammunition nnd provisions, others were at work
at the giri stnd shears, others building sand-bag
traverses to guard the raagaziue doors, as
though expecting an immediate attack. Many
officers were strolling under the shade of the
open gallery, at tho side of the curtain which
contained Ibeir quarters 'in'Uidloli;.bomb proof
casemates.
Some of them tad seen service. in, Mexican
or border warfare; some had travelled over
Italian and Crimean battlefields ; others wero
West Point graduates of tho regular army;
others young planters, clerks, or civilians, whb
had rushed with ardor into tho first Georgian
regiment. The garrison of the fort is 660 men,
and fully that number were in and about the
work, their tents being pitched inside the Re
dan or od tho terrepleiu of tho parapets. The
walls are Exceedingly solid and' well built of
hard gray brick, strong as iron, upwards of six
feet in thickness) the casemates and bomb-
E roofs being lofty, airy, and capacious as any I
avo ever seen, though there is not quite depth
enough between the walls at the salient and tbe
gun-carriages. The work is intended for 128
guns, of which about one-fourth are mounted
on the casemates. They are long thirty-twos
with a few forty-twos and columbiads. The
armaments will be exceedingly heavy when all
the guns aro mounted, and they are fast getting
the ten inch columbiads into position en oar;
belle. Everything which could be required,
except mortars, was in abundance ; the plat
forms and gun-carriages are solid and well
made, the embrasures of the casemates aro ad
miralty constructed, and tho ventilation of tho
bomb proof carefully provided for. There ure
three furnaces for heating red-hot shot.
Nor is discipline neglected, and the officers
with whom I went round the works wero as
sharp in tone and manner to their men as vol
untecrs well could be, though the latter aro en
listed for only thrco tears by tho State of Geor
gia. An excellent lunch was spread in the
casemated bomb-proof which served as the Col
onel's quarter, and before sunset the party were
steaming towards Savannah through a tideway
full of leaping sturgeon and porpoises, leaving
the garrison intent on the approach of a largo
ship, which had her sails aback off tho bar and
hoisted the Stars and Stripes, but which turned
out to be nothing mora formidable than a Liv
erpool cotton ship.
It will take some hard blows beforo Georgia
is driven to let go her grip of Fort Pulaski.
The channel Is very narrow, and passes close
to tho guns of tho fort. Tho means of com
pleting tho armament have been furnished by
the stores of Norfolk navy yard, where between
700 and 800 guns have fallen into tho hands of
the Confederates; and, if there are no colum
biads among them, tho Merrimac and other
ships, which have been raised, as we hear, with
guns uninjured, will yield up their Dahlgrccns
to turn their muzzles against their old masters.
May 2. May day was so well kept yesterday
that the exhausted editors cannot " bring out
their papers, and consequently there is no news;-
but lucre is, nevertheless, much to bo said con
cerning "Our President's" message, and there
is a suddenness of admiration fur pacific ten
dencies which Cim with difficulty be accounted
for, unless the news from the North these last
fuw days has something to do with it. Not a
word now about an instant march on Washinq
ton I no mow threats to seize on Fancuil Bail.
The Georgians aro by no means so keen as
the Carolinians on their border nay, they aro
not to belligerent to-day as they were a week
ago. Mr. Jefferson Davis's message is praised
for its " moderation," and for other qualities
wnicb were oy no means in sucn tavor while
the Sumter fever was at its height. Mcu look
grave and talk about tho interference of Eng
land and France, which "cannot allow this
thing to go on." But the change which has
coma over them is unmistakeable, and the
SLST MEN BKGIN' TO LOOK ORAVE. As for me, I
must prepare to open ray lines of retreat my
communications are in ua
danger.
A Paris Scandal. People hero havescarce
ly finished discussing the trial of the publisher
and printer of the pamphlet of tho Duke d'Au
mule, when their love of scandal is gratified by
tho prospect of a legal contest of a different
kind, Tho lawsuit promises an abundauce of
those details of family "differences" in high
life for which an amiable public has usuually
so eager an appetite. It seems that M. ami
Mine, de C , who had made nn immense
fortune in the Lyons silk trade, are blessed with
ono daughter n beautiful but spoiled child
whom they idolized. Determined to give her
a title, but equally determiued to maintain their
paternal hold over her intact, they married her,
nine years ago, to the young Marquis do G ,
having previously put it into the girl's head that
she was to make, during the performance, of the
marriago ceremony, a series of mental reserva
tions, in virtuu of which sho should bo free to
live entirely apart from her husband ; thus gain
ing the coveted title, but continuing to reside,
as before, with her " doting parents." This ex
traordinary scheme was carried out. As soon
as the formalities of the marriago had been gone
through with, the parents of tho bride informed
her husband that Bhe had urtdenly conceived
an insuperable aversion to him; and that, al
though he might occupy Si pnrate rooms in the
samo house, ho would never be allowed to re
gard the young lady as i.u wife.
A few days after the Wvdding, which had
been very splendid, the lady's friends obtaiued
a legal decree of separation between the couple,
on tho cround of the voung lady being under
age ; and, soon afterwards obtained, from Rome,
a dissolution of the religious marriage, on the
ground of its having been accompanied by a
mental reservation on tho part of the bride.
Extraordinary as it may seem, it is stated that
the Roman authorities granted this petition.
And so the pair have continued separated ever
since ; the Marquis Uft without a wife, thu young
lady's vanity gratified with the acquisition of
the coveted title; and tho parents triumphing in
tho success of their stratagem. Tho suit to
which tho gossips aro looking forward with so
much delight, is brought bv the Marquis, who
demands that, uudcr tho circumstances of the
case, his unlucky marriage shall be declared to
be null and void. Cor, N. V. Evening Pest.
