LAST WEEK IN WAGNER.
LOONTINUED FROM PAGE ONIL]
The parapet (f the salient was gona,
and the ditch at that point filled with the
drift. It seemed that the bomb proofs
would soon succumb to this destructive
fire. A portion of our signal corps ha
been specially detailed to observe the
signals of the enemy. Every dispatch
signalled between Gen. GIllmore, ot the
Federal army, and Admiral DAthlgren,
of t0.e navy, was transmitted by our
signal officers to Gen. Beauregard in
the city, and such as he desired us to
kuow were then sent to Col. Kiett for
his information and guidance. One of
these dispatches, which was read by Col.
Keitt to a few of us who were in his
confidence, detailed the plan of an attack
on Battery Gregg which had ben agreed
upon between Gillmore and D.hlgren.
The arrangement was made by which
Dah1gren was to furnish the boats and
Gillmore the men, and Battery Gregg,
at Cumming's Point, was to be skr
prised. But for this in f >rmation it seen -
certain that Gregg would have fallen and
the Confederates on Morris Island cit

tion was to comu in boats with mi i A
oars from the creek which snpar.iiil
James from Morris Island, and when
keels of the boats struck the beaul it

water was thus oblainied, hut not in a
suflicleent quhanltit ies. TPhe hecat was in si
tense and the air in thte biomb-proofs 11
became very foul arid hardly stupported w~
life. The light of trie lamps, kept con- ni
stantly burning, could tiardly penetrate n
the gloom. '1The lRev. A. F". Dicksion, o
Our worthy and eflleient chaplain, held L
the usual 'Sunrday's religious services, 1
and the voices of the men, singing the w~
praises of God, could be heard tamid ja
the screamning of solid shot and b)urs't- tl
lng of shells.
A bout 2 o'clock P'. M. Col. Harris ar.d a
Capt. F. I. Lee, of the engineer corps a
came dlown from the city to inspect the v
fort and report its condition to Gen. tl
Heauregard. They were of the opinion t<
that it could not be heldi much longer.
The work was, in their judgment, un- e
tenable. Under the directions of Capt. r
Lee the damages done by the enemy's 1.
gun bad been promptly repaired till
the last parallel of the besiegers was
completed. It was then no longer pose
sible, and it was very hard to keep a
from being entirely buried by the sandj
drifts occasioned by the bursting shells. I
The parapet of the saiJiAnt waR nlow
entirely gone, and the ditch in front
filled for a space of fifty feet or more.
At dark the enemy's sap reached the
ditch at a point to the east of this fill.
About 4 o'clock,after Col. Harris and
Capt. Lee had made their report, we1
received'the order of Gen. Beauregard
through the sigrnal corps to evacuate
the fort. The plan of evacuation had
Xen talked over and agreed upon by
Dl. Keitt and the offlicers commanding
regiments, in anticipation of receiving
the order. No one of us can claim for
tumself the honor of its arrangement.
The order of Gen. Beauregard did not
Ox the details, and our plans were niot
changed. In the event of our failure
to receive the order to evacuate, as we
could not successfully resist an assau It,
as we resolved to make a sortie, and
throw our cxumaud upon the enomy
in their last parallel. We were resolved
to sell our lives as dearly as possible,
and I have no douibt that our assault o1
the enemy would have been a very hon
orable death struggle.
In accordance w%ith our plan of eva
CUation the lionor (it cuvering the re
treat fell to the 25h S. C. V. With a
part of that regiment 1. was to cover
the retrua! of a;l the troops from the

and that the boats were ready for an
other detacliment, I sent off Compan
ies It. 1), 1',, C and 11. They, like the
C'eorgians, took with them a 12-pound
vr ho%witzer. We tried to conceal the
fact from our own ien that we were
Iva unating the fort, and did all that,
we could to cause them to believe that
fresh t roops were near to take their
phices in the garrison. (Grent circum
spvtction an( caution was required.
The enemiy were in our ditch and riot
more t han hifty feet fromi us. (I have
recently had a conversation with Capt.
IItiy, of the cruiser Chi-irleston, who
told ne thatf he was with the troops in
our dtitch.) A panic among our men3[
wIould( have been at once fatal t.o thle
whiole mlovOeet. No troops could

at Fort Wagner.

-This will give the advocates of an in

The World's FiIr Fire.
CmeluA-o, Jan. 9.-Last night's fire
in the World's Fair grounds produced
greater changes in the appearance of
Chicago's famous pleasure park than it
was expected would be made by six
month's removing of buildings. The
Casino, where thousands spentdelight
ful hours watching gay scenes upon
and about tl,( grand basin, was wholly
destroyed .l'he Peristyle, once illumi
nated vith thousands of incandescent
lights and Greek fire, furnished Greek
fire, and nothing remains. Its arches
are burned away and its stately col
umns, half burned and charred, lie in a
confused mass on the promenade
which surrounds it. Colossal figures
which surmounted it., toppled to the
ground when their supports burned
away and are broken in pieces. Co
lumbus and his heralds with their war
horses and chariot, are an unrecogniz a
ble mass of ruins. The Music IIall
likewise is a melancholy heap 'of ashes
save here and there where twisted iron
girders protrude. Not a portion of it
was savcd from the flames. All about
the wvalks are strewn with debris,
charred brands which the wind blew
from the burning buildir.gs and little
piles of white ashes where some of the
brands were consumed after falling.
The Manufacturers' building, both
within and without, presents a sight
not desired either by artist or exhibitor.
The lattice work between the top and
the roof, and curved work covering
the central aisles on the east side were
burned away from a point above the
southern end of the United States sec
tion south to one above the lunasian
section. Upon the tin and glass arched
roof lie half burned boards, which
formed part of the lattice and which,
when loosened by the fire, slid down
ward. Inside the b)uilding appearan
ces are worse than on the roof. With
in thle region burned, over anid for some
distance on either side, the floor is cov
ered wvith water. Standing in water,
which at som' pla'es is: two inches in
depth, are innumerable boxes contain
inigp precious wares, baled and bound
fo ehipment as soon as they could
be released from bond. Upon and
about them lay and now destroyed dec
oratiot.s of pav illions. The French,
IBelgian andi English sections, suffered
most and in spaces occupied by them is
to be0 seen the most disastrous results.
'rie scene Inside the great Manufac
tiurers' building was of absorbing in
terest. llere andl there were seen
boxes with their tops half burned
hbrough, but their conterts safe, except
for water that leaked1 into them.
