FBO.II 018 EVENING EDITION
The Celebration at Fort Snmter.
Grand E\tnrsion to iharleston—Departuii*
of the Steamship Blatkslone.
A General Order of Hie War Department
having directed that tlxe anniversary of the
evacuation of Fort Sumter, on the 4th of
April, 1861, be marked with suitable cere
monies. an excursion, comprising most of the
military officials of this post, and jnauy dis
tinguished citizens, whqpe names are given
in full, was arranged in Savannah, to visit
Charleston and be present at the celebration
on Friday. The fine serew-9teamer Black
stone was assigned for the trip, aud this
morning lay at the dock foot of Whitaker
street, gaily dressed from truck to deck in
fluttering signals and streamers. Nine aud
a half o’clock was the hour of starting, and
at that time the decks were crowded with the
Excursionists. The fine regimental band of
the Fourteenth Maine Volunteers, occupied
a position on the upper deck, and discoursed
patriotic and stirring music.
The day was mo3t promising. The blue
heavens were flecked with a few fleecy
clouds, and an invigorating westerly breeze
added a refreshing coolness to the bright
summer weather. At a little before ten
o’clock all being ready, and the party all
aboard, the flag-decked Blackstone swung
round in the current, and was soon headed
down the stream. The st irring music of the
band arose, the folds of the Stars and Stripes
floated out upon the breeze, and amid the
cheers of the throngs on the wharves, and
the salutes of the steamers lying at the dock,
the excursion steamer dropped down the
beautiful Savannah upon her gala journey.
Os the further progress of the excursion we
shall have the pleasure of laying before the
readers of the Herald, the full account of
our correspondent who accompanies the
ACCOMMODATIONS OF THE BLACKSTONE.

unteer stewards, Mr. Moses Belisario, for
merly of the Pulaski House, Mg. Francis
Dowd, late of the* Savannah Side-Wheel

stone will find excellent accommodations in

MOBIL E !
SEIGE OF SPANISH FORT!
OUIt LOSS AT* OUT 800.'
TWO XROCT-CLADS BLOWS?
[From the N. Y. Herald, 9th.]
Highly interesting accounts of the progress
of operations against Mobile, both by the
army and navy, up to and partially including
the 31st ult., are contained in the despatches
of our correspondents brought by the steam
ship Merrimac, which arrived here yester
day, from New Orleans on the 2d inst. The
investment of the strong rebel position of Old
Spanish Fort, one of the principal defences
of the city on the east side of Mobile Bay, by
the Thirteenth and Sixteenth army corps,
took place on the 27tli ult., and on that and
the four succeeding days heavy skirmishing
and artillery firing between beseigers and
beseiged were kept up. The national troops
were gradually approaching the work, and on
the 29th were intrenched within seventy
yards of the enemy’s rifle pits. The Union
killed and wounded in the two corps up to
the 31st, were estimated at about eight hun
Two national iron-clads, the monitors Mil
waukee and Osage, were blbwn up in Mobile
Bay on the 28th and 29th ult., by rebel tor
pedoes,killing four men and wounding seven.
As the vessels sunk in shallow water, it is
thought they can he raised. As at every
other point where the reliels establish them
selves, both water and land for miles around
Mobile are thickly planted with these infer
nal contrivances. On shore several casuali
ties from had occurred, and the troops had
dug up a large number.
The navy was actively co-operating with
the army, and kept up a vigorous shelling of
both sides of the bay. A fleet of rebel ves
sels, some of them no mean antagonists,
were lying on Blakely River, below the city,
.and a battle between them and the national
gunboats was hourly looked for. In fact, it
w T as believed at Dauphin Island on the 31st
nit., the date of our latest accounts, that it
had taken place, as veiy heavy firing in the
direction of Spanish Fort w r as heard during
the whole of the day.
The eolamn of national troops under Gen.
Steele, which left Pensacola,Fla., the 20th of
March, arrived in front of Mobile, opened’
communication w T ith Gen. Canby’s and com
menced hostilities on the 29th. On his
march General Steele had considerable skir
mishing, but met with no serious opposition.
At one point on the route the rebel cavalry
were found drawn up as if determined on
desperate work, but at the first charge from
the National troops, they broke in confusion.
Some of them fled instantly, others surren
dered without firing a shot, while many
threw down their arms and begged for mer
cy. Altogether General Steele’s cupture9
were one Biigadier General, twenty-two
other officers, four hundred men and four
hundred and fifty horses.
At another point on his march Gen. Steele’s
men cut the Mobile and Montgomery Rail
road, and captured two wagon trains.
Reaction in English Sentiment. The
proposition to place Canada in a position of
thorough military defence, which was de
bated in the British Parliament and on the
13th inst., as announced in the European
news published yesterday, is specially im
portant, for the reason that it was conducted
by the leading members of Parliament, and
goes to show the wonderful reaction,that has
lately occurred in English, sentiment, with
regard to the war in this country. The glar
ing evidence of sympathy with the South,
which marked former Preliminary debates,
has disappeared, and a tone of friendship
and good feeling pervades every speech.—
This is all very well, so far as the English
Gevemmentis concerned, but whether it
will be sufllcient recompense for the “neu
trality” which sent the Alabama and its sis
ter pirates to burn and destroy our commerce
together with a few other items of a like
nature, will probably appear hereafter.
