(JEW. W VLLUS OFFICIAL DISVA TCIIF.S
From the New Or'earg ricajuo'.'.
For Ihe first time since it was built,
Fort Jackson one of the strongest de
tenses of the Mississippi river bidow tho
city was, on Sunday last "under lire."
Availing ourselves of a courteous invi
tation we accompanied a pleasant party
to the forts, leaving the city in a steamer
on Saturday night, and arriving, after
some detention by a fog on the river, in i
the forenoon of" the next day. Jtrst as
our boat touched tho landing, we heard
tho drum beat "the long roll," w hile a
bugler standing on one of the bastions
sounded the call lo quarters. At this
summons many of the soldiers who bad
been engaged outside set oil" at double
quick, and made their way to the interior
of the fort, and when we entered we
found the various eompanies drawn up
inline or on their way to the casemates
or parapets. Soon all were in place bo
side their guns, ready for the threatened
conflict, while Gen. Duncan and his as
sistant oflicers were seen pacing the par
apet, spy-glasses in hand, and casting
eager glances to the point of woods about
two miles down tho river, and behind
which they could already discern the
masts of the enemy's vessels coming up.
At, this moment a red flag was raised
over tho-Confederate banner, by way of
Signal to &t. i'hiHip, opposite, that the
enemy was approaching, and immediately
the blue-crossed, white-starred battle
ilag was run up on the staffs of both forts.
Meantime the several gunboats lyintr
off the forts formed in readiness to take
part, if need were, in the contest. One
of these went down on a rcconnoitcrkig
expedition, and having ncarcd the point
of woods that yet hid the boats ol tba
enemy from our sight,, returned, but not
without being honored on her passage
with a compliment or two from the guns
of Commodore Farragut. She accom
plished her return without injury, and
Boon a black hull was seen to emerge be
hind the woods, and making her, way
towards the Icit bank of the river. Ilavi
ing attained what she probably consid
ered an elligible position for her purpose,
sue came rouna ana presented iierbroaa
Bide to the fort, being then about two
miles distant. . '
A few momenta of eager, expectation,
and a flash, followed by a pu(F of smoke,
was seen to issue from oue of her guns,
and then there came whizzing aud hurl
ing through the air heard by all, and
seen by many in its course the lirst
shot ever fired at Fort Jackson. It was
a very creditable line shot a shell and
passed critically near the posifion of
those who were watching its destination
It passed over the fort and fell between
its walls and the river, smashing a small
foot-bridge and making .a formidable
splash in the mud and water thereabouts.
llio next was aimed with about the same
degree of precision, and fell beyond the
walls, within a few feet of tho outer bas
tion, facing the river. Some portions of
this exploded shell were secured by the
spectators as, relics. Wc have one we
should be pleased to show any curiously
inclined inena. ,
Some twelve shells in all were bestow
ed'upon us from, different positions iq
the course of, tho afternoon, including
ono hred from the screen the woods af
forded, which we took for a mortar shell.
This described a lofty serial curve, and
when in mid air exploded, the fuse be
ing too short to carry it to its desired
goal. 1 wo of the shots came iu very
dangerous proximity to our . pretty
steamer, which lay at the landing, one
passing over the pilot house, and the
other dropping into the water, just abaft
the stern. Another passed clear over
tho river, beyond rU Fljnip, into the
prairie, aud others were thrown, but like
tho rest, all without accomplishing their
hostile antent. .
All this of course was done mainlv
by way of "getting the range," thoii"h
it is not to be doubted that every shot
was intended to tell. JL-rom ,St. lhihp
some six or seven of tho enemy's ves
sels of different clashes, were plainly to
bo seen, and from Jackson the masts of
the flagship of this licet, with tho end
iron Haunting at the peak, were visible
over Lie lopn 01 the wood. ,
There w ere but three responses made
on our side to these repeated compli
merits of the enemy ; but these were all
num elegantly turned. After the uun-

But though the enemy did not pay any

confined within a limited circle here, but
perhaps tending to occasion alarm in the
country. Ihis is that the confederate
authorities design to evacuate Virginia.
, We presume no one will attribute to
us any junduc admiration of the admin
istration, but we will do it the justice to
assert that its sincere .devotion to the
success of Ihe revolution and the main
tenance or the territorial integrity ol the
whole confederacy cannot bo ouestioned.
l or, whatsoever might bcihe demerits of
many individuals composing the admin
istration, they havo yet given guarantees
which rendered the execution pf tho in
famous purpose attributed to them im
possible, . ,
1 he confederate government is domi
ciled in L'ichmond. Its departments of
war and linancc are fixed here. Tho
chief manufactories of arms, aud tho
principal depots of provisions are iu this
city. 1 ho removal of the coverument,
though no more necessarily fatal lhan the
removal of the confedwato government
of 177(5 from Philadelphia to Lancaster,
will yet stimulate northern rapacity aud
discourage southern resistance... There
is every reason, therefore, to believe that
no such purpose can ,be entertained by
those, who must suffer such infamy from
its consummation. . , - , .,- ,' .,( . :
The design to abandon Virginia is at
tributed to the government with equal
absurdity. Virginia is the head and
front of the revolution. She has not only
famished an immense quantity of arms
and material of war, tlio has not only
filled the ranks with her quota and more
lhan her quota of troops, but she lies as
the breakwater of tho storms of war. -We
used to hear it said by the same spirit
which devist-d the falsehood under con
sideration, that Virginia was to be made
the rampart, from behind which tho cot
ton states were to bo defended. Is it
probable that any sane people should wish
to break down rhe rampart, dispirit its
best defenders, and transfer a bloody and
destructive war to the bosoms of those
states which have been thus far exempt
from its evils?
Every state south of us has its point
f active invasion. Charleston, Savan
nah, New Orleans, are threatened with
assault. Is it reasonable that tho states
to which they severally belong thoirtd
wish to level the defenses which protect
them on tli north from tho grand ad
va.iu of tho encuiy V Can it bo recon
ciled with common sense, that Virginia
should be paralyzed like Kentucky or
Maryland, and her strength and courage
lost to the conft derate defense ? '
We will not treat this absurdity fur
ther; it dignities it too much, it will
only refute one lie to give place In some
other perhaps more probable.
Whatever may be our objections to the
administration, we will doit no injustice'
We will not see the cause sutler fnin
falsehoods, which the public waul of (con
fidence in certain members of the admin
istration may render plausible. We shall
always exercise the right to point out llm
errors of the government, but wc ahall
do nothing t impair its energies. How
ever drfrt-tivct it cannot bo overthrown
and rtformodjin ihe present exigency.
Wei therefore recommend to the public
to disregard the mischievous ruoawrs
which they may from time (o tune he',
tending to duoourajre their support of
the cause. There are, no'doubl, trailon
amonjr us who do all they dare for the
enemy fearing to aid Ihera with overt
acts, they contribute their service by,
sfartin? and circulating unreasonable
lies. Tho courage and common Bcneo of'
our people will discriminate between tho
probablo and the false, and relievo us
from the trouble of refuting such insane 1
sforics as that the Confederate anthori- 1

We have frequently referred to tho un- '

which he did for the pay of a "bit a r.

1 1 The case is so flagrant that it might be
expected to surpass belief, but for the
testimony we-have to establish every
fact we a' lege. ,, But recently -that is;
about two weeks ago a man arrived
here across the Potomac, who had been a '
clerk in one of the departments in Wash- '
inglon. He took the oath of allegiance
lo the Lincoln government, and kis namo
as a Southern clerk will be found in the
report of tho celebrated Potter Investi
gating Commit lee, as printed in tho col- '
ttmns of the New lork Iribunt. Thi
person arrived in liichmond about a. ,
fortnight ago. Ihe veru next dan after hit
arrival, through an application to an old
wasnington tviuairance here, he obtain-
cd a position in what is now the most
critical branch of tho public service, and
where one word, or mlormation to tha
enemy might utterly betray us.
We do not ask can such thinas be?
Tbat they exist can be established by
half an hour's testimony. The question .
is, shall abuses of this sort continue fijc
