REVIEW OF Tlili IIOIIT.
Off Ciiaklkston- Harbor, )
Wednesday, April 8, 18G3.
The great struggle is over. The en
terprise on which so many months of
preparation have been bestowed, and
to which tho eyes of the whole Ameri
can people, loyal and disloyal, havo
beon directed with the most intense
interest, Las proved a failure. The
rebel flag still floats over Charleston
and its defences, and our iron-clad fleet
has withdrawn from tho conflict, bailled
and in part disabled. Now that tlio
smoke of battle has cleared away, the
maddening excitement of yesterday
abated, and . some chanco afforded of
learning all tho incidents of a never-to-be-forgotteu
scene, let mo endeavor
to group together such of the main
features of the day as present, them
selves to my mind, and, to writo as
clear and succinct a narrative as I may
be abld to do of tho battle between tho
pigmioa and giants between tho little
floating doubted-gunned revolting tow

'with much interesting information
from H ilton Head and Suffolk. It will
bo seen that tho attempt to tako
Charleston has been abandoned, the
. lleot moving from Charleston, and tho
army of Hunter going to Hilton Head.
j Tho Herald gives the following as
Tho attempt to take Charleston is
for the time abandoned. The iron-clad
licet of Admiral Dtpont aud the army
of (leiaral Hunter havo beon with
drawn to Port Royal. Tho experiment
proved too hazardous. Tho batterios
. of the enemy at Sumter, Moultrio and
Cumiuings' Point, and the obstructions
in tho channels, presented obstacles
; too formidable to bo overcomo by tho
force brought against triom. By tho
arrival of tho Arago from Charleston
baron the 11th inst., wo learn these
lads. The tiro from the batteries was
i tremendous, as the condition of the
i Keokuk shows. Slio was fairly rid-
idled through and through with highly
poli bed stool r.hot, weighing a bun
j dred pounds, each, furnished to the rcb
! ols by England. Our vessels fired in
all oniy one hundred and fifty-one shots
j at tho torts, while the latter struck the
I boats over live hundred and twenty
1 times. The armed transport George
(.Washington was dostioj'ed by the reb
! els lc Coe.'-iiw river, near Port Royal,
; oil Thursday morning last, as before
i reported. Sho remained behind for
i special service under Col. Hawle.y, who
j was acting as post commandant at
j Hilton Head while the forces were,
I away. Gen. Saxtoa who was iH com
mand at Beaufort, sent for tho Wash
j iogton tomakcareconnoissance around
j tho island. In company with the guu
I boat Halo, fiho went up tho Coosaw
1 river, was attacked by a rebel battery,
which sent a shot through her niaga
' zinc and blew her up. The crew wcro
I fired upon while attempting to escape,
i and several of them killed and woun
ded. I Our correspondence from tho Black
w ate to-day gives f.n interesting ac
count of tho rebel advance upon Suf-
i folk, tho capture of our outposts, and
the flight of the women and children.
i The object of this attack is to prevent
J reinforcements' from reaching Gen.
Poster, in his perilous position at
"Washinaton, X. C, and cut off our
forces at .Suffolk from communication
with Norfolk, which latter placo no
doubt the rebels intend to invest. In
tclligonco reached Fortress Monroe on
the Pith that tho enemy had retreated
four miles from Suffolk, and that tho
gunboats sent to Foster's assistance
had succeeded in running the rebel
THE rr.OGPlCES OP THE WAR
Tho Herald says, editorially :
The rcpulso of Admiral Hupont's
iron-clad ffect at Charleston indefi
nitely postponos, wo suspect, tho re
sumption of active operations against
t hat rebel stronghold. Tho door will
doubtless bo koptVnore closely guarded
than heretofore against English block
ado runners, with their "aid and coca
fort to tho enemy but as the sickly
summer season in a few woeks will
visit the South Carolina seaboard, we
conclude that nothing but some over
Union successes m otner
wdl secure the capture of
i':h:ir!fintnn. before tho return of the
malaria killing frosts cf auttun, Indeed,
it is broadly hinted in a leading nboli
tion journal that tho idea of a crush
ing spring campaign has been abandon
ed at Washington, and that probably
our military1 operations, until tho end
of the summer, will bo limited pegging
a littlo here and pegging a littlo there,
as tho occasion may invite or demand.
Tho failure at Charleston, together
with the failure at Vicksbnrg, to gain
any docisivo advantage over t he enemy,
has, at all evonts, put an end to the
lato confldont expectations of tho
country in regard to a vigorous .and
decisive prosecution of tho w ?.r.
THE HOUT AT tltA 11 M. iiOX.
Referring to tho fight at Charleston,
tho Herald says :
The guns of the forts were of the
heaviest calibre, and most appi ved
patterns tho English allies of the
rebcli having ruppliod them with to mo
of their best ordnance. The artillery
practico was excellent, as is proved by
tho fact that our nino vessels were
struck fivo hundred and twenty limes,
