Naval Fight in Warsaw^S sunii - -3 arren
?1er of the Iron-c!a:l ..,.u?;a.
About 10 o'clockthi? ? reno-;,}, i.iiJ?i'^nc?
reached the city which lilied every benrcwiib.
jegrefc-it vas no los? tl-an tho j??y of tiijs
splendid Confederate States iron clad steamer
Atlanta, forint* ly thc Finfh?'. TSo ?ir<*Wrri
stances under whkii; iLis ? adair
toojc place, are- as. follows :
The Government has loug desired to put
the Atlanta to active Ker vice, and to thia*: end
were made the various official changes is the
Navy which have been noticed in thn'paper,
the out g'oing officers and the Secretary of the
Navy differing legardinfr the capabilities of
the steamer. A few week? azo Ca^tt. Webb
was placed ia command, and froji that date
until now bxs been busily engaged i ri prepar
ing the Atl; uta lor notion. -Everything being
in perfect order, and splendid crew, ns to ca
pacity "on board, about daylight this (Wednes
day) uorning, the Atlanta moved forward
into Warsaw Sound. "When off "Warsaw
Island she encountered Two iron-clad Yankee
monitors, lying close in shore.
The Atlanta tired first si..<t at ten miuu'es
to 5 o'clock, and second at five minutes after
5. The monitors replied, and the engagement
was kept up un td th* Atlanta had fired four
shots and the monitors five. The latter lay so
close in shore, in shallow water, that our
steamer found it impossible, owing to her
heavy draft, to get as near as she would. At
5} o'clock the firing ceased on both sides \ at
13 minutes to G o'clock small boats .were seen
to pass, from both mouitors to tho - Atlanta,
and a wooden guh-bo?t down the s/uind was
^signalled to return, which she dkl. The ene
my boarded the Atlauta at ten minutes to 6,
and at 6 30 the Confederate fhg, which had
floated over her mud theu, was taken down
and the Abolition flag hoisted in its stead.
One shot was seen to strike the Atlanta, it is
supposed near her stern, and a shell burst on
her deck, but with what effect is unknown.
The ofiieers of thc Confi dence Sure*
steamer l-ond)ga-who were in sigat and
witnessed the entire engagement and surren
der, state that the Atlanta appeared io be
aground si veral times during the act ion. Th??)
think she was cl? arly so when the tiring ceas
ed and perhaps bilged, as her pumps were,
actively at work aud she appeared soon alter
the surrender to be carteuing.
Some su.-picions exist, as to the Gdfdtty ol
the crew^ >d it is evtn rumored that diuboli
cal threats were uttered by a portion of them
previous to the departure of the vessel, but
we doubt if this U true at ali events, Wv
shall dd them the justice of writing them
down as loyal and nuc until lae contrary
shall have b en proved. Such, we are ?uforni
er], is the o; inion of all naval officers in port.
We hear that Capt. Webb addressed r.is men
just before going into act top,, and they re
sponded with tue greatest emhu-hisir. ; gtqng
to their quartern with alacrity and io tho beat
of spirits.
The real cause of tho disaster ?pg, proba
bly, the inilSciemy of the A'lanta, own g to
1er heavy ?rnft, to cope Miceesslu iy- with the
.foe in our shallow waters. She WHB distrust
ed by most of our naval ofliccrs on this ac
? couut and ihe weakness of her hui!', compared
with the irrinei^e .?>:i? eiiin umbeul w. igiit ot

Wc give to-day several items from the
Mississippian^ of the 14th, coucerning the
progress of events in Mississippi. lt s'ieru*
but little tr ore is known, or made public, at
. Jackson than here, and every budy must fur
the present " possets their sonis ot patience."
The movements on the river are becoming
significant. With Gen. Price at or near lie!
ena, and Kirby Smith on the Louisiana shorn
opposite Vicksburg, re eau confidently expect
at hast a large snare of tbe leinluiccinenUi
intended for Graut, viii find employment
west of the tiver, us indicated by our ?peela
dispatch. All the reports we have seen ?fitt
' mate Gen. Price's strength at four brigades
and if he has attacked Helena, we have ni
idea the garrison could resist nina,'as it lue
Leen'weakened to swell Grant's forces.
We have a private letter from Jackson, of t
t late date, which says it is the opinion of th?
public generally, based upon ngjnors thai
reach the city, and in military circles t'ortnot
upon more detlmte knowledge, that Gen
Pemberton and his men will have no difficult;
in holding his position until Johnston can re
lieve him. The latter-was moving, in wha
direction we cannot repeat. The same in
formant asserts, that Kirby Smith is at Md
liken's Bend, and that Magruder wus nesr a
hand for the relief of Gardner, at'Port Hud
son. A number of beef cattle forwarded b
him had been crossed to the garrison hy swiu
ming. A brigade of troops, it was aUo stt
ted, had crossed.at ?ayou Sara.
Our forces have uestroyed the New Orleau
Jackson and Great Northern railroad, fro,
Manchac forty miles North, ?nd the Yanket
were engaged in repairing it. If they use
to advance North, as is probably their intel
tion, a farther destruction is provided lor.

OUR vandal foo. on-hie.to cope with tile Con
federate force* in the open held, havo resorted
to a mode of warfare which aronscs the indigna
tion oN?very buart ejpablo of u patriotic emotion.
Not content w:th wresting peaci ful citizens from
their homes and confining thom in- luathesome
dungeons, and with seizing our contented slaves
and inhumanly placing them in military - organ
izations, to be set down in the front of battle, they
have inaugurated a system of raids into the inte
rior of the Status, stealing negroes, burning cities
end farms', destroying livo stock and -growing
crops aud spreading dosulaUbn.everywbero in their
track. To meet this condition nf things, and tn
render practicable greater concentration of our
forces already in the field and afford adequate in
ternal protection to the States, the President of j
the Goufeduraoj deems it expedient to call for a
portion of their rnsorrc force for service within^
.heir re?p'ctiv.o limits. Upou the Governor of
.South Carolina bc eilis for five thousand mon.

These organizations may be voluntary, as will
bo seen by an examination of tba Act, aud are
for special service only within the S ute. under
fiffioors of their own selection, aud with the priv
ilege of rt rn:, ?oin,' at home in the pursuit of their
ordinary avocations u-tless called for a temporary
