Dear Tarents : The liohio has been at
work again. Yesterday, at G A. M , we
sighted a schooner in the horizon, hoist
ed the Spanish ensign, and she did the
same, but as soon as we ran up the Stars
and Stripes, she hauled to the wind And
tried to escape; wo put on sail alter sail
till wo had 21 sails set! but the schooner
was a smart sailer, and we did not gain
any. We then run out the guns and iired
two shots at tier, but she did not mind
it. The captain ordered the sails to be
wet down, and they were drenched, and
wo began to come up with licr. At las
we resorted to strategy, and rigged
"smoke stack" amidships, and built ;
fire, and soon had "steam on." As soon
as she saw this she hove to, thinking wo
were a steamer, and would soon catch
her. o boarded her, and found her to
be the Henry 1 ravers, of Nassau, N. 1'.,

Wc find the following paragraph in an
exchange paper :
"A contract has been made by govern
ment with certain parties in Boston, to
build an iron gunboat of between C'K)
and 700 tons, to bo furnished with Wood
bury s submarine battery. The vessel
will be 13i5 feet long, and 30 feet beam,
and will he built throughout of iron, in
the most substantial manner. She will
carry one gun on deck and a large gun for
submarine firing at the bow. She is to
be built, at the Atlantic Works, East Bos
ton, and is to be ready for service in from
four to five months.
The period sUtcd fur (he completion
of this vessel would put hr in commis
sion in September next The term sub
marine battery conveys no adequate idea
of this extraordinary invention, and
lencc we are tempted to copy from the
'oston Transcript the subjoined account
f the design, and of & sucwas'u! expe
riment made with it in Boston harbor on
"ThciJcr.of the inventor is to build
an iron-clad, bomb proof vessel of sulli-
cient tonnage to carry a gun at tho bow,
one at the stern, and as many as desira
ble amidships. I he vessel in action will
lc alongside of her adversary, and dis
charge her guns at as near range as pos
sible to obtain.
"The cannon are to be of the usual shape,
but longer than common, andean be cast
to discharge any projectilo now in use.
the gun, when ready lor action, has a
tin cylinder case lilted closely at tlio
muzzle, rendering the chamber air-tight,
and preventing the entrance of water.
When the piece is fired, the charge at
tains its fuiI velocity before reaching the
tin canister previously mentioned, and
an effective shot may bo made at a dis
tance of two or three hundred feet.
"The cannon is fitted into a 8tuff.ng
box, similar to that of tho piston of a
steam engine, and an automatic porthole
opens and shuts as the piece is run out
or withdrawn. The recoil on the gun is
so strong, and the action of the port so
sudden, that it is expected very littlo
water will be shipped as the cannon is
"A 'twelve-pounder was fired under
water at a target made of eprue plank,
crossed at right angles, and heavily bolt
ed and braced, and placed at a
distance of tenor twelve feet." The
target was penetrated in such a manner
as to show that the invention is one of
the most important which has been made
in naval warfare."
The inventor is Mr. Joseph P. Wood
bury, we nave not yet naru ol any
English claimant to this device, but
doubtless some such will turn upas soon
as the vessel shall go into successful op
eration. It was so withLapt. Ericsson s
battery,, and with nearly everything
else American of great utility. Our
readers need not be told that if this in
vention should do what it promises, it
will be one of the most formidable en
gineB of naval warfare ever constructed.
It is peculiarly adapted to lighting against
armor-clad vessels, which, while they
are amazingly Btrong above the water,
have no armor below, and are there per
fectly vulnerable. Hollins' submerged
ram was designed to combat such, vessels,
as well as the ordinary war vessels, and
it appeared from the partial description
of the Merrimac which has just been
published by the authorities at liich
niond, that she, too, has botli ends sub
merged, though we had not ascertained
the fact. Besides the visible ram, there
fore she must have formidable battering
power under water.
If this new battery of Mr. Woodbury
can fire a twenty-inch gun under water,
a single shot from it at point blank range
would sink any vessel in existence. Nay,
a fifteen-inch gun, or even an eleven-inch
would do such awful damage to an an
tagonist as can only be conceived by re
ferring to the slaughter on the Cumber
land and Congress. Captain Coles may
build as many of Ids vessels as he
chooses on Ericsson's plans; and their
being sunk to the water level, while it
would protect them against any other
antagonist, would be of no avail against
this Woodbury battery. Above the sur
face every shot lired is seen, and the
open port affords an aperture into which
the enemy pour their destructive missiles.
But under water, where this new engine
of death is worked, the terrible messen
ger wings its way uhm-cii, the porthole
pesents no mark to lire at, and tho de
voted vessel is powerless to resist.

The Loyal People of T.nmt Tcnnoancr,
In our telegraphic dispatches of yes
terday evening wo had a report by way
of Fortress Monroe, through tho families
of Parson Brownlow and Congressman
MaynarcJ, that all the Unicvi people of
East Tennessee men, women, and chil
dren had been ordered to leave within
thirty-six hour, abandoning their homes
and their property, the aged and the sick,
to the tender mercies of the infamous
traitors who have been ruling there with
a rod of iron for a year past.
In the telegraphic dispatches in tho
morning papers wc find tho following :
Washington, April 30.
A 1.Up? received !;jrs fiOiu afrentie
man, high in authority in Tennessee,
contains the following: "Say to the
I'ostniastcr-Generel that wo are succeed
ing beyond our most sanguine expecta
tions. As soon as the rebel army is
driven beyond tho limits of Tennessee,
the State will stand for the Union by an
overwhelming majority. I hopo' the
Government will be impressed with the
absoluto necessity of the army entering
East Tennessee. The seeessionists there
arc arresting and plundering our people
by thousands. Their acta of inhumani
ty and babarity aro without parallel."
The letter concludes: "Great God, is
there no, relief for that people?"
Well may the writer of this letter
make tho exclamation with which it con
cludes. Of all the professed Union re
gions of tho seceded States, in East Ten
nessee alone have tho people boldly and
manfully and patriotically resisted tho
usurped authority of Jeir. Davis. They
alone have maintained their allegiance
to the old ilag and recognized the consti
tutional authorities of the nation. Thnv
have pleaded for long months for succor
anu protection against their oppressors,
but no Hticcor has come. They have seen
their oldest and best loved citizens im
prisoned in loathsome jails and executed
on the scaffold for tho crime of adher
ing to their country against its enemies
Yet they have not swerved in their loy
alty. They have been hoping and pray
inir for the presence at least of a small
Union force, but, though often promised,
none has yet reached them. We have
sent troops near enough to induce them
to rise un. but after this was done, we
have retraced our steps, leaving tho un
armed patriots to the vengeance of their
This is not such treatment (lio
loyal people of East Tennessee merit at
our nanas. luc uovernment owes it to
them owes it to the causo of humanity
to afford them succor. We presume
there is good reason for the neglect thus
far, but there should bo no further "neg
lect. If there aro not soldiers enouch
enlisted to warrant tho sending of a
force to succor tho loyalists of East
Tennessee, let tho word go forth that an
armv for such mirnoso is needed, and
thousands will come forward and vol
unteer with as much alaeritv and en
thusiasm as the Christians of thn middle
ages rushed to arms to rescue the holy
