The Government has long desired to put
the Atlanta to -active servie??, and to thia end ^
Were made the various-official changes in the1
Navy which have been noticed injthis'paper,
the oat going officers and t'.ie Secretary of the
? Navy differing regarding' the capabilities of
the steamer. A farr week;? a??o Cajtt, Webb
wa3 placed in command, and froji that dato
until now has been busily engaged io prepar
-. ing the Atlanta tor action. ilvetything being
in perfect order, -and splendid crew, as to ca
pacity "oh boards about daylight this (Wednes
day) morning,' faa Atlanta moved forward
into Warsaw Sound. When off -Warsaw
Island she encountered two iron-clad Yankee
. monitors, lying ci?se in shore. ? . *
The Atlanta tired first shot at ten minutes
to 5 o'clock, and second at .five minutes after
5. The monitors replied, andi he engagement
was kept up. un td the Atknta had fired four
shots and the monitors five. The latter lay so
closo in shore, in shallow water, that bur
steamer -found it impossible, owing to ber
heavy draft? to get as near ?is abe would. At
SJ o'clock the firing ceased on both sides;.at
. 15 minutes to C o'clock s?mil boats "were seen
to pass, from both mouitobi to the -Atlanta,,
and a wooden gun-boat, down the spund was
.signalled to return, which sib's dkl.- The ene
my boarded the Arlauta at tea minutes to 6,
. and at 6 30 the Confederate flag, which had
fixated over her nnol theu, was taken down
. and the Abohtiou flag hoisted s in tis shad.
One shot was seen to strike the A; Un tu, it is
supposed tear her stem, and a shell burst on
her deck, but with what effect is unknown,
The. officers of the Co.nfcderare State?
steamer I-ondiga-who were in 6igat and
witnessed the entire engagement and surren
der, state that the Adapta appeared tobe
aground .several times during the action. Th ny
think she was cl? ar!y so when the firing ceasr
ed and perhaps bilged, asher pumps were
actively at work aud she appeared soon alter
the surrender to be careening..
Some suspicions exist, as to the fidelity ol
the crewf? .vi.it is evt-n ru DJ red that diaholi
cal threats were uttered by a portion of tiiem
previous to the departure of the vessel, but
we doubt if this is trut*;;. ?it. all eveuts, wv
shall dd them the justice nf wtitiug them
down as loyal and true until the contrary
shall have b -en proved. Such," wo are iufurm
ed, ia the o; "inion of all naval officers in port.
We hear that Capt. Webb addresstd r.is tuen
just before going into action,, and they ie
sponded with tue greatest euibu-insm ; gs dag
- io their quarters wita alacrity and ie the beat
of spirits.'
The real cause of the disaster V.PS. proba

We give to-day several . items from the
Mississippiani of the !4tb, coucerning the
progress of events in Mississippi, lt s?etu?
but little more is known, or made public, at
. Jackson than here, and everybody must for
the preaent "possets their souls ot patience."
The movements oa the river are becoming
significant.. With Gen. Price at or near Hel
ena, and Kirby Smith on the Louisiana shore
opposite Vicksburg. r:e eau confidently expect
at least a large snare of tne reiniuieeuieula'
. intended for Graut, viii find ehiplovment

dispatch.' ?_ Ah the reports we bave t-eeii trali
' mate Gen, brice's strength ai; four brigades,
and if be has attacked lie leu a, we have nu
idea the garrison could resist iii m.1 as it had.
been'weakened to kwell Grant's J?rces.
We have a priste letter from Jackson, of.a
^ late date, which says it is tkij opinion of the
. public generally,, based upon r^piora that
t reach the city, and-ia military circles tbrmod
upoh mere detinue knowledge, that Gen.
Pemberton arid his men will have no difficulty
in- holding his position until Johnston can re
lieve him. The latter was moving, in what
direction we cannot repeat. The same in
formant asserts, that Kirby S ni i th is at Mil
liken's Bend, and that Magruder wus ue*r ut.
hand for th? relief of Gardner, at'Port Ilud
son. A number of beet cattle forwarded hy
him had been crossed te the garrison by swim--j
ming. A brigade of troops, it.was also sla
ted, had crossed.at Bayou ?arfi.
Our forces have uestroyed the New Orlea'ua, j
Jackson and Great Nert hera railroad, from
Manchac forty miles.North, and the Yankees
" were engaged in repairing it. If they use it
to advance North, as.is probably their inten
tion, a further destruction is provided tor.
