It is no longer denied that the light at Charleston was a tljkt and uci a re connoisanco ; and also that it was a mortifying defeat and failure. Tho tattle orders of Admiral Papon t. even told what was next to bo done after tho reduction of Sumter! 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 The rebel flag still floats over Charleston and its defences, and our iron-clad fleet has withdrawn from tho conflict, bailled and in part disabled.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 araof iron and tho forts and batteries that line the shores ob Morris and Bui "van's Island, staudiug as grim uenti- Lumctiit WINCHESTER, TENN., APIUL 25, 1863. jnels in tho harbor, and with their three I hundred monster guns guarding tho jcntnuico to tho rebel city of Charles j ton. I rut -r i j nioJLenua Here gives an account of the immense preparations mado to reduce tho rebel city, but wo havo not room in tho Bulletin to publish it. the following will be found full of interest : The Attempt to Take Charleston AbaidoncJ lhtpont'6 Fleet und Hunter a Army With itrauti The ltclcl Advance upon Suffolk ("'"'. Kimball Shot und KUledly Gen. Corcoran, etc. W flag of truco boat to City Point tho Petersburg Express received New York aud Baltimore papors of Wodnes day last, April' 15. They aro iillcd '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 Tin-: Situation. 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 batteries. 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 j O'lartej-s 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, the favors being distributed ar t.UJlows: cw Ironsides received of shot Co !'0 CO 'JO hx 51 51 bi 80 Keokuk Weehawken Montauk Passaic Nantucket Catskill Patapsco Nahant u ; t( it Vncle Jerry.
