ON ROAD STAR OF THE WEST.
Saturday, January 5th, 1861.
Tiie steeinsh'iD Star of t h Wat sailed from
the foot oi Warren street, New York, this after

Ciptain MoGawan, an expsrleoced officer, who,
tor many years, was In the United States rev
The vessel cleared for New Orleans and Ha
vana, hnc this via onlv a crecautionarv meas
ure, bi the real object of the expedition was to
convey provisions and troops to Major Ander
son, at Fort Sumpter. The plan ot the move-
Bent Mens to be to convey tnese Aroops and
stores aa they would be conveyed In a time of
firofound peace, except that it is intended to go
n early In the morning, if possible, without the
knowledge of the Sooih Carollotaoi. In accor
dance with this plan,' the greatest precautions
possible have been employed to keep tue move
TRANSFER OF SOLDIES.
The transfer of the men and baeraee from
the Lodwwd to the Star oj thi Wat commenced
immediately, and was conducted with aa much
expedition and . silence as possible. I placed
myself at the neaa or me gangway, ana al
though our lights were dim, I could see the sol.
diets distinctly aa they came up, In their gray
overcoats and dark capi. Officers and privates
were as fine looking fellows as one could wish
to gee. I learn, however, that about one hun
dred and fifty of the men are recruits.
THE SECRESY ON BOARD.
Suuh secresy has been observed lu starting
out the expedition that the officers in command
were wholly ignorant of their destination until
a few hours previous to their departure. After
(bey were informed ot it they were not permit
ted to leave the (Bland until they get foot upon
the Lockumd, All communication, in fact, be
tween the island and the city was out off. One
of tbem showed me an order issued but a few
days aince directing him to proceed to Califor
nia, and he bad been home and made all the
preparations for bis journey. Now his baggage
is In New England, and be Is on the Stir of tht
Wert, bonnd lor Fort Sumter.
The privates, of course, were wholly Ignorant
of their destination when tney came on board
this evening, it was curious the hear their onn
"Halloo, Billy, are you here?"
"Yes, Jim, this Is me."
"Well, where are we?"
"I don't know, Jimmy."
"Well, I don't care. I'd go to the d quick
enougn to get off that old island."
It may well be questioned whether "Jimmy"
will find it pleasanter to be shut up in Fort Sum
ter six mouths or a year, more or lees, than be
bas lound it on "tnat old-island."
SPECULATIONS ON BOARD.
If we are attacked, will Fort Samtcr protect
us 7 It is said it can silence the cues of Axout
trie in a few hours, and if it shall do so, we can
He off until the job la accomplished, and then
periorm our work, we luuy expect loe pro
teetlon of Fort Sumter. The captain bas an Ira'
mense American flag, twenty feet by forty, and
haa been instructed to raise this at the mast-
bead the moment the first ahot Is fired. There
ii already an ordinary United States .flag aft,
and raising tnis large one forward, can oaraiy
fail to Inform Msjor Anderson that we consider
ourselves under his protection.
A STEAMER PASSED.
At a fow minutes past eleven o'clock this eve
ning, we met the steamer Columbia, from
Charleston, bound for Hew York. Captain Ber
ry, who is a zealous secessionist, let on nine
rockets, but our captain did not respond. We
display but few lights, and the soldiers are not
permitted to remain on oecic wnue a vessel ib in

MONDAY, January 7.
We m&do Cape Hatteras at ten o'clock this
We bad a decided "sensation" on board to
day. One of the officers was reading aloud
from Saturday's evening edition of one of the
New York morning papers, when be stumbled
upon a paragraph announcing that there was
reason to believe that the steamship "Star of
the West" would sail that afternoon with
troops and provisions for Fort Sumter. Of
course, there is no longer any doubt but the
chlvaklc Palmetto soldiery will be after us, and
that we shall bare to run tbtir guns or be sunk.
Our Captain, who bss seen much service, as
sures us that it is a very unpleasant business to
bo shot at a great while without any chance to
shoot back. In confirmation of this opinion,
be relates bow a vessel which he was once on
was fired into from a Mexican battery for about
half an hour before the ship bad any opportur
nlty of returning the compliment, tie says It
waa very unpleasant. I am not a military man,
but the assertion appears quite reasonable to
AT CHARLESTON BAR.
TUESDAY, January 8.
We made Cape Fear about 8 o'clock this
morning. We have moved slowly, as the cap
tain's instructions are to cross the bir early In
the morning and, run up to, Fort Sumter at
day break, aud we wish to approach the barbor
by nigni. i nis ai ter noon we stopoea bdom sev
enty mues irom ine ner lor inree nouri or more,
and had some fishing. The dsy has been de
lightful, and our incoess in enticing unsuspect

the result of (o morrow morning's experiment.

even our state-rooms are in niter darkness, and
in the cabin we have only one lantern, by the
dim light of which one of the officers has this
evening been reading he adventures of Captain
Simon Suggs, for the entertainment of his com
panlons. ,- ,-: v .- l
The provisions have been brought up from
below, and placed in the cabin and on deek. If
Moultrie disables us, tue captain is determined

LIGHTS OUT ON THE COAST.
WEDNESDAY, January 9.
1 awoke at three o'clock this morning, and
went immediately to the upper Heck where I
found the captain, mate, pilot, and two military
officers. I learned that we arrived In the vicin
ity of Charleston bar about midnight tbat all
the coast lights had been extinguisbed, and that
thus far it had been Impossible to find the main
channel. It is evident from these Indications
that the hospitable South Carolinians do cot
mean tbat we should go In without a salute,
WEDNESDAY, January 9. THE MORNING.
I have never seen a finer morning than the
one which dawned upon us. The sky was dear,
and the moon, a faiut crescent of silver, had
Just arisen, acd the low coast looked like a
dense lorest or evergreen. Toe spires at
Charleston became visible in the approaohing
daylight, and on the walls of Fort Sumter
we descried the American flag floating In the
ATTEMPT TO ENTER THE HARBOR—ATTACK OF
On we go; the soldiers are below with loaded
muskets, and the officers are ready to give the
word if there is anything tod o. Now it is broad
daylight, and we are naking direotly into the
guns of Fort Moultrie, whose blaek walls are
distinctly visible. The llttlo steamer at our
right is burning a signal light aft, and is mi
kiag all possible headway up the baibor. Now
we discover a red raimetto nag at our lei t on
Morris Island, at a little village called Cum
mlngs Point, and apparently but little more
than a mile Irom Fort Sumter.
"Is it possible that these fellows have got a
battery off herel" asked one.
"No," answers another; " 1 here Is no battery
But there Id. It Is now a quarter pait seven.
and we are about two miles from Fort Sumpter
and Moultrie, wnicu are cqui-diatant from us,
and, suddenly, whiz z ! comes a richochet shot
from Morris Island. It plunges into the water
and skips along, but tails short of our steamer.
The line was forward of ocr bow, and was, ol
course an invitation to stop. But we are not
ready to accept the proffered hospitality, and the
captain pays no attention to it, except to run up
the stars and stripes at the masthead the gar
rison flag mentioned before. A moment of anx
ious suspense, and bang 1 goes a heavy cannon
from the same masked battery. The ahot falls
short of us a hundred yards or more, and bounds
clean over our vessel art, nearly on a line with
the bead of a sailor, but, luckily a little above
On we go, and whiz I again goes the smaller
gun first fired, and another riheochet shot skips
along the water, aud fails short of ns.
"Booh !" exclaims the captain; "you must
give us bigger guns thaa tbat, boys, or you can
not hurt cs."
On we go, without heeding the compliment
of our Charleston friends. Another moment
and bang I again goes the heavy gun.
The ball now strikes our ship in the fore
chains, about two feet above the water. A
seaman was holding ths lead to take the Bound
logs, and the ball struck directly unrJer his feet.
It ia not surprising tbat, under the circumstan
ces, Jack waa strongly inclined to take to bis
heels, and he begins to scramble np with might
and main, when the captain assures him tbat
there is no danger, one bail having Btruok so
near' bim; on the principle, I suppose, that
lightning never strikes twice In the same place,
Jack, reassured, patiently takes bis place and
drops the lead again.
The ball, fortunately, was too far spent to go
through the sido of our vessel, although it left
an honorable scar.
The battery continues to play upon us, and
huge ball comes clean over us near the wheel
house. We are not yet within range of the
guns of Fort Moultrie, aud yonder is a cutter
in tow of a ateamboat, preparing to open fire
upon us. A moment longer aud we shall be in
ranee of these three batteries. The gunners
on Morris Island are growing confident; if they
get the right range they will send a shot thro'
our side, scattering death and destruction.
Moultrie, directly in front, will bring her heavy
guns to bear and will drive their deadly missiles
into our bow, while tbe cutter will open on our
w by does pot major Anderson open nro upo
tbat battery and save ns'f We look in vain for
help; the American flag flies from Fort Sumter,
and the American flag atour bow and stern is fired
upon; yet there is cot the slightest recognition
of our presence from the fort to which we look
for protection. 1 be unexpected battery on
Morris Island haa cut eff all hope of escape by
running the vessel aground near Sumter and
taking to the boats. Is it possible that Fort
Sumter bas been taken by the South Caroli
nians? If it has not, why does not Msjor An
derson show tbat he will protect us, or at least,
recognize us In some way J To go within ranee
of the guns of Fort Moultrie is to expoee ves
sel, men, ana stores to almost instant destruc
tion or to capture by the enemy.
"Helm out ot port!" shouts the captain, and
ine star oi tne west is turned about without
any great loss of time, as you may well imagine.
We turn without accident, and steam away,
with the stars and stripes still floating, and ths
battery still playing upon us by way of a part
ing salute. . -:.
As we steam away the steamer near Moultrie
having the hostile cutter In tow, steams away
into Swash channel, evidently with the Intention
of cutting eff our retreat; but she soon abandons
the chase, and we sail out, without a man killed
or wounded,1 with our stores unharmed, and
proceed unmolested, 'probably on our homeward
AN INCIDENT ON THE SEA.
Soon after crossing the bar of the Charles
ton barbor, on our nomeward course, we met
fine sailing vessel, the Emily St. Purrt
Ubarieston. captain McUowan stopped and
bailed her. -
"Where do you hail from?" said he
"From Liverpool," was the reply.
" "Whither bound?"
"What flag do yon (ail under?"
' 8o far under the American flag."
"Then you can't go Into Charleston." said
captain. "They will not let the American
go into mat port, i was mat drivea out ot there,
They fired upon me when I was sailing under
ine American nag."
"Tben, I suppose, I must go in under the Pal
motto flag," said bo of tbe Emily St. Purrt.
. "Then, I ought to take you," shouted
captain, with energy; "War bas been declared
they nave nrea upon me, and you are a lawful
prize. "j . ' .

as be had not at present a com mission
Government, be would let the Emily St. Pierre
go be way. but declared that if he had his com'

THE EXCELLENCE OF THE SHOOTING.
The military men on board highly compli
mented the South Carolinians on their shooting,
In this first attempt. They say it was well
done; that all which wm needed was a little
better range, which they probably could have
obtained in a few minutes. Their line was
perfect, and the opinion is expressed ihat some
one bad charge of the guns wbo understood bis
THE GUNS EMPLOYED.
Two gun were employed; tbe smaller, it is
believed, a twelve pounder, and the larger
a thirty-two pounder. This, however, la only
conjecture. Whatever their size, they were
well manned. Tboy were fired rapidly, and
with a will.
THE RETURN VOYAGE.
We crossed the Charleston bar, outward
bound, about nine o'clock. There was then a
consultation as to our future movements'. The
impossibility of enterlrg the harbor and landing
at Fort Sumpter was sufficiently apparent. We
bad no instructions except to go to For Sumpter,
and It waa decided . tbat the only thing to be
dene was to put back to New York at soon as
It is believed that if the South Carolinians
had not made a mistake we should have par
taken of their hospitality, whatever it maybe,
as prisoners. If tbe battery on Morris Island
bsd waited ten minutes longer before firing, we
should bare been completely at their mercy. It
was only necessary tor them to wait until we
were within range of the guns of Fort Moul
trie, and escape would bare been impossible.
So that, had It not been for this new and unex
pected battery on Morris Island, and Its prema
ture firing, we should inevitably bave fallen In
to the bands of tbe enemy, if we bad esraped
shooting and drowning. ,
DISTANCE OF VESSEL FROM THE FORTS.
The Star of the Weat'was about fire-eighths of
a mile from the battery on Morris Island. When
she turned.we were about a mile and a half from
rort Sumpter, and tbe ssme distance from Fort
Moultrie. Tbe Morris Island battery is an-
isreLtly about a mile and a quarter from Fort
lumpter. Had we not turned about we should
bave soon been within less than three-fourths
of a mile of Moultrie. -
Since our return, it ha been ascertained that
two shots took effect on tbe steamer, one, as al
ready stated, on her port bow, and a second, as
she was turning, on ner starboard quarter. Oae
shot passed between the smokestack and tbe
it is not true, as 1 learn has been stated in
some of tbe morning papers, that the Star of the
west struck ber colors, we came out oi
Charleston w ith the stars and stripes still fly
Any one who la familiar with the Charleston
harbor cannot fail to appreciate the importance
ot rort tsumter. from me deck or our vessel
It bad the appearanoe of a new red brick build
ing. It completely commands the channel,
rort Moultrie, and Morris Island. Our officers,
however, are In doubt whether It commands tbe
masked battery on that Island whloh fired on us
The battery is, apparently, simply an earth
work constructed among sand hills. -The port
holes of Fort Sumpter overlooking Morris Island
ware closed, and it 1b possible mat tbe guns on
mat sido of tbe fortress bave not been mounted.
