BomLardi! east of Foil Stiwitei’- It affords us p finite pleasure to record that Fort Moultrie has fully sustained the prestige of its glorious name. It fired very nearly gun for gun with Fort Sumter. Vt e counted ti.c guns from eleven to twelve o’clock, and found them to be 42 to 4G, while the advantage' was unquestionably upon the side of Fort Moult ie. In that fort not a gun was d'smouiiteil, not a wound received, hot the slightest permanet t in jury sustained by any of its defences, while ev ery ball from Fort Moultrie left its mark upon Foi l Sumter. Many of its shells were dropped into that fort, and Lieut. John Mitchell, the worthy son of that patiiot she, who so nobly vindicated the cause of the South, has the hon or of dismounting two ot its parapet guns by 7 a single shot from one of the Columbiads, which at the time he had the office of direct" ing. The famous iron batteries —the one at Cum ming's Point—named for Mr. C. IL Stevens, the inventor, and o the celebrated floating Batte ry, constructed under the direction ot Captain Hamilton, liave fully vindicated the correc ncss of their conception Sh-t after shot fell upon them and glanced harmlessly away, while from their favorable position their shots fell with of" : feet upon Fort Sumter, and the south east pan copee, tinder the lire of the Stevens battery, at j nightfall, if not actually bieached, was badly damaged. At this battery the honor of firing the first gun was accorded to the venciable I Edmund Ltillin, of Virginia, who marched to the rendezvouz at the sound of the alarm on ( Monday night, and who, when asked by s< m: , person who did not know him, to what compa ny he belonged, replied, “to that in which there is a vacancy.” It were vain toatiomptan exhibition of the anthusi ism and fearless mtrepidily ol our citi zens in every department m’ this eventful day. Bouts passed from post to post without the slightest he-itati m under the guns of Fort Sum- ( ter, and with high and low, old and young, rich and poor, in uniform or without, the com mon wish and constant elLu t was to reach the posts of action ; and amid a bombardment resisted with the most consummat' skill and perseverance, ami with the most ( flint nt appli ance’s of military art ami science, it is a most remarkable eircumstan te, and o ie which < x lib its the infinite goodness of an overi tiling Ihov idelice, that, so fur us we have been able to learn from the most Carehil inquiry, not the slightest injury lias been sustained by the de fenders ol their country. It may be added, as an incident that contri buted no little interest to the action of the day, that from early in the forenoon three vessels of war, two of them supposed to be the liar'- riel Lane a* d uve, lay just beyond the bar, inactive spectators of the contest. licther they will attempt to enter during the night ai d encounter the batteries on cither side that line the shore, is yet lo be determined : il so we wdl piesent the records 4 a bloody issue in our next. Fort Sumter did not return the fire of our Latteries for over two hours, and ceased firing at seven o’clock, p. in., though oiir men con tinued to the hour of going to press. Fort Moultrie, 4J u. m. We commenced firing this morning at 4 ’ 3 m., and have continued a steady fire until the present, and are still firing. Idle bails from Fort Sumter arc doing little or no damage, not a p" rson having been ii jured. Ihe Morris Isl and battelies appear to be doing a great deal of injury to their side ot Sumter. Major Anderson has one gun bearing on Ft. .Johnson, ore cm each of the lower batteries on this island, and five on Fort Moultrie. z\t pre sent there are three United States war vessel.' off the harbor. .All the guns beating on th -m are loaded and manned, ready for action. From the Charleston Mercury of the 13lh. i We stated vesterda . that on Thursday, at I thre' o’clock, p. m., Gen. Beauregaid had made I a demand upon Major Andi rson f< r the evacua tion of Fort Sumter through his Aids, *'•>!• ncl Chi snut, Captain Lee, ami Colonel Chisholm, and that Major Anderson had regretfully de clined, under the circumstances of his position. It was, however, understood that ui less re infoic. <1 he would necccssarily yield the post in a few days—say by the fifteenth. An eff >rt was therefore, made to avoid an engagement, without incurring greater risk ot reinforcement. At one and a half, a. m.. Colonel Chestnut and Captain Lee reached Fort Sumter from Gener al Beauregard, and. we gather, were prepared to enter into any arrangement for non-action is to Fort Sumter, if i.o as-istai; e wcie given to the efforts of reinforcement ; but p .-tponc merit merely to mature hostile plans was irn-< possible. No satisfactory agreement l>-ii>g : propose ! and time being important, at three and a half o’clock a. in., M >jor Amite son was notifn I tt.a’, at the <■••.» nation ot an hour, the batteries would open ther fire upon him. The Ai ls then pas~ed th net? in a boat to Fort Jo msom and Col. Chesnut oidcred the fire to I begin. Precisely at fmr and a half o’clock, a shell was tired from the signal Lattery on I James’ Island, which making a bcaatiful cnrve, b irst immediately above Foi t Sumter. Within fifteen minutes all the Carolina batteries were in full play. The inhabitants of Charleston forthwith thronged to East Bay Battery and *. other points of observation, and excitement prevailed through the day amid various and stii ring rumors put afloat from time to time.— Major Anderson, having no oil to light up his t casements, and the morning being slightly e murky and drizzly, did not respond until broad :i (lay. z\t a quarter before six he opened his e fire by a shot at the Iron Battery, on Cutn -1 ming’s point; then at Fort Moultrie; the Float s ing Battery, located at the west end'of Sul i . van’s Island; the Dalilgreon Batterry, Major i Trapicr’s Battery, and Fort Johnson, inter - speising his attentions by paying respects to the numerous mortar batteries, by which lie, i encased in brick, is surrounded. Hour after I hour has the fire on both sales been kept up, ■ delmcratc and tn.flagging. The steady, frequent ’ shock of the cannon’s boom, accompanied by • the hiss of balls, and the hoi rid,hurtling sound ’ of the Hying shell, are now perfectly familiar to the people of Charleston. While the early • sun was veiled in mist, we.saw shells bursting within fold illuminating Fort Sumter, or ex ploding in the air above, leaving a small thick , clou 1 <>f white smoke to mark the place. We • saw solid shot striking the dark walls, and in i each instance followed by a fume of dust from 5 the battered surface. One man was. visibly i stricken prost ate on the wharf,and carried in i the fmt; and several guns dismounted. she • walls, too, in several spots, w<?re damaged And while Sumter has certainly and manifest ly been injured, no loss is yet sustained on our our part. Fort Moultrie is intact, so far fighting capacity is concerned. The Iron Battery is ready for continued work, altera full and fail- trial of its powers of resistance ; also the Floating Battery. The practice of our as marksmen, lias been excel! nt and highly satisfactory to officers of science and exper once; and great gratification, at the last; accounts, six o’clock, p in. not one man of our army has suffered injmy. From the London Telegraph. The Blockade of Souihti'a Ports. ! With regard to the blockade question, wc have stated that it cannot be s lived by any government i i but must be left to the maritime powers of Europe —which, acting (Upon the law of self-preservation, must, of I I course, forbid all attempts to exclude their ■ I commerce from the ports of the South; the 1 ruin of which, though it might gr itify the pas- ■ | sions,would not serve the interests of the North. Such a policy of coercion, tin ref uc, would be at once shortsighted ai.d ineffectual. The new tai ill', for which Air. Lincoln is not n spon sible, though he will probably not be unwil" Img to accept its Cons quences, is an unwise measure on the part of those who fiained it. It is not merely pioicetive, but in a large ('(>-< gree prohibitory. By imposing excessive du ties, it closes the markets for forejgn p ro . i ncts; and. by relieving the inan’jfacturer from competition, d< prives him of all stimulus to im prove the works of his industry—the consu mer, of course, thus sacrificed to the producer. But, apart from those mighty interests, the pol icy of rmglaud is distinctly represented by the fact that, whatever revolutions may convulse the New World, we stand totally apart from tlmm. Peace between Gre it Britain and the 1 nit(‘d States is necessary to the national life of bo*,’u. por what would a war signify ? The ccs>atioii of a trade amounti to thirty mill" ions sterling annually, the stoppage of one third of our factory system, and c i enormous diminution of our general pr<>sp<’ ty. There" f >re, whover mav be President ot’ America, and whether there be one Confederal ion or two, our relations with the United - tales must re main unaltered. If the North triumphs, we slni.'l rejoice to while the progress ol human freedom. If the South, with its boasted army of thirty thousand volunteers, c ri i< s tlfe day, wc have our cotton inaiket to look after. Un der no circumstances can wc entangle our-elvcs in the complication of New W 7 oi Id politics.— Lam asbire forbids it. London, Birmingham, Bri<tol and Glasgow echo the protest. Mans , ■ Chester and Liverpool unite their voices in fa,- I yoi <>f perfect neuti ality. And why ? Because American commerce is English commerce, and w cannot stir a finger upon the Atlantic with out equally compromising the two empires.— President Lincoln has the interests of the Un-> ion o piotect, and Lord Palmerston is bound o defend those of Great Britain : but the for mer cannot bf allowed to blockade our flag out of the Southern port--, er the latter be stini" ulate I to any [j .tzan advocacy of Northern ambition.
