Particulars of the Bombardment of
The New York papers contain volumi
nous accounts of the defence and surren
der of Fort Sumter, from the different
officers engaged. No man can read them
without feeling that Maj. Anderson and
all his associates in the garrison have cov
ered themselves with glory, and that the
country owes them a debt of inextinguisha
ble gratitude. They fought gallantly, un
der every disadvantage, and against every
difficulty. Weak in numbers, with their
food utterly exhausted before the conflict
began, insufficiently supplied with car
tridges in a fort which proves to have
been so totally incapable of protracted re
sistance as to have endangered by its con
flagration the lives of its own garrison,
they held out nobly and undauntedly to
the last. All honor to the defenders of
Sumter ! Without repeating accounts of
the bombardment already familiar to our
readers, we pick out all the new and in
teresting incidents we can find. They
will richly repay perusal.
A new English gun which was employed
by the enemy was fired with great accu
racy. Several of its shots entered the
embrasures of Sumter, and one of them
slightly wounded* four men; The full
effect of our firing we have been unable
to ascertain, haying nothing to rely upon
but the reports of the enemy; Our men
owed their safety to the entirely extraor
dinary care by the officers in
command. / A man was kept constantly
on the lookWt who would cry “shot” or
“ shell” at shot the enemy \ made,
thus ample opportunity
to seek sheltcr/vVe had to abandon one
gun on account of the close fire made
upon it. Hearing the firo renewed with
it, I went to the spot. I there found a
party of workmen engaged in serving it.
I saw one of the workmen, stooging oyer
with bis hands on his knees, convulsed
with joy, while the tears rolled , down his
powder-begrimmed cheeks. “ What are
you doing here with that gun?” 1 asjted.
“ Hit it right in the centre,” was the
reply —the man meaning that his. shot had
taken effect in the centre of the! Floating
Battery. The aim of the enemyiwas prin
cipally directed at our flag-staff, from which
proudly waved the Stars and Stripes.—
After two days’ incessant firing, the flag
staff was finally shot away. i
The effect of the fire was more disas
trous than we could have supposed. The
subsequent shots of the enemy took more
effect in consequence;, the walls were
weakened, and we were more exposed.—
The main gates were destroyed by fire,
thus leaving us exposed to the murderous
fire of the enemy. Five hundred men
could have marched on us without our
being able to oppose; them. The fire sur
rounded the Fort on all sides. Fearful
that the walls might crack, and the shells
pierce and prostrate them, we commenced
taking the powder oat nf the magazine
before the fire bad fnlly enveloped it—
We took 96 barrels of powder out, and
threw it into the sea, leaving 200 barrels
in. Owing to a lack of cartridges we
> kept, five men inside the magazine, sewing
, as we wanted them, thus using up our
shirts, sheets, blankets, and all the availa

WIGFALL MAKES AM ASS OF HIMSELF.
Toward the close of the day ex-Senator
Wigfall made kis appearance, .at the era
haasurc, with a on the
ejjrd of a sword, and begged for admitiancc.
He asked to see Major Anderson. While
Wigfall was in the act of crawling through
the embrasure, Lieut. Snyder called out
tehim, “Major Anderson is at the main
gate.” He passed through the embrasure
into the casemate, paying no attention to
isat the Lieutenant had said. Here he
was met by Capt. Foster, Lieut. Mead and
Lieut. Davis. He said, “ I wish to see
Major Anderson; lam Gen. Wigfall, and
come from Gen. Beauregard.” Ho then
added, in an excited manner, “ Let us stop
this firing; you are on fire, and your flag
is down; lot us quit.” Lieutenant Davis
replied, “No, Sir, our flo" is not down.—
Step out here, and you will see it waving
over the ramparts.” “ Let us quit this,”
said Wigfall. “ Here is a white flag, will
anybody wave it out of the embrasure ?”
One of the officers replied, “That is for
you to do, if you choose.” Wigfall re
sponded, “ If there is ho one else to do it,
1 will,” and jumping into the embrasure,
waved the flag toward Moultrie The )
firing still continued from Moultrie and
the batteries on Sullivan’s Island. In
answer to his repeated request, one of the
officers said “One of our men may hold
the flag,” and Corporal Binghurst jumped
into the embrasure. The shot continuing
to strike all around him, he jumped down
again, after having wared the flag a few
moments, and said “Damn it, they don’t
respect this flag; they arc firing on it”
Wigfall replied, “ They fired at me two or
three times, and I should think that you
might stand it once.” Wigfall then said,
“ If you will show a white flag from your
ramparts, they will cease firing.” Lieut.
Davis replied, “ If you request that a flag
shall be shown there while you hold a
conference with Major Anderson,, and for
that purpose alone, it may be done.” At
this point Maj. Anderson came up. Wig
fall said, “ I am Gen. Wigfall, and come
from Gen. Beauregard, who to stop
this.” Major Anderson, rising on,his
toes, and coming down firmly upon: his
heels, replied, “ Well, Sir.” “ Major Au
derson,” said Wigfall, “ you have defended
your flag nobly, Sir. You have done all
that is possible for men to do, and General
Beauregard wishes to stop the fight. On
what. terms, Major Anderson, will you
evacuate this fort?” Maj. Anderson’s
reply was, “Gen, Beauregard is already
acquainted with my only terms.” “Do I
understand that you will evacuate upon
the terms proposed the other day?” —;
“ Yes, Sir, and on those conditions only,”
was the reply of the Major. “ Then,
Sir,” said Wigfall, “ I understand Major
Anderson that the fort is to be ours.”—
“On those conditions only, I repeat.”
“Very well,” said Wigfall; and he re
A short time afterward, a deputation
consisting of Senator Chesnut, Roger A.
Pryor, Capt. Lee, and W. Porcher Miles,
came from Gen. Beauregard, and had an
interview with Major Anderson, when it
came out that “ Wigfall had no authority
to speak for Gen. Beauregard, but acted
on his own hook!” “ Then,” said Lieut.
Davis, “we have been sold,” and Major
Anderson, perceiving the state of the case,
ordered the American flag to be raised to
its place. The deputation, however, re-;
quested him to keep the flag down till
they could communicate with Gen. Beau- ‘
regard, as matters were liable to be com
plicated. They left, and between two and
three hours after, the garrison meanwhile
exerting themselves to extinguish the
flames, another deputation came from Gen.
Beauregard,freeing to the terms evac
uation previously proposed, and substan
tially to the proposals of Wigfall. This
was Saturday evening. That night the
garrison took what rest they could. 1 Next
morning the Isabel came down and an
chored at the fort. The steamer Clinch
was used as a transport to take the garri
son to tie Isabel, but the transfer was too
late to allow the Isabel to go out by that
tide. The terms of evacuation were, that
the company should take all its individual
and company property; that they should
march out with their side and other arms,
with all die honors, in their own way and
at their own time; that they should salute
their flag, and take it with them. The
enemy agreed to furnish transports, as
Maj. Anderson might select, to any part
of the country, either by land or water.
When the baggage of the garrison pas
all on board of the transport, the soldiers
remaining inside under arms, a portion,
were told off as gunners to serve in sola
ting the Aiflerftan flag. When the hut
gun was fired the flag was lowered, the
men cheering. At the fiftieth discharge,
there was a premature explosion,

taking nearly the whole day. On Tues

INCIDENTS FROM ANOTHER ACCOUNT.
The firing of the rifled guns from the
iron battery on Cnmmiag’s Point became
extremely Ucounite'Tn the afternoon of
Friday, cutting out large quantities of the
masonry about the embrasures- at every
shot, throwing concrete among 'the can
noniers, and slightly wounding, and stun
ning others. One piece struck Sergeant
Kearnan, an old Mexican war veteran,
striking him on the head and knocking
him down. Upon being revived, he was
asked if he was hurt badly, lie replied,
“No; I was only knocked down tem
porarily,” and he went to work again.—
Meals were> served at the gnus of the
cannoniers, while the guns were being
fired and pointed. The' fire commenced
in the morning as soon as possible. Du
ring Friday night the men endeavored to
climb the flag-staff, for the purpose of
fastening new halyards, (the old having
been cut by shot,) put found it impossible,
The flag remained fast.
For the fourth time the barracks were
set on fire early on Saturday morning, and
attempts were made to put it out. But it
was soon discovered that red-hoi shot were
being thrown into the fort with the great
est rapidity, and it became evident that it
would be impossible to put out the confla
gration. The whole garrison < was set at
work, (or as many as could be spared,) to
remove the powder from the magatiues,
which was desperate work, rolling barrels
of powder through the fire.
ROLLING OUT POWDER THROUGH THE
Ninety-odd barrels bad been .rolled outn
through the flames, when the heat became
so great as to make it impossible to get
out any more. The doors were then closed
and looked, apd the fire spread and became
general. The wind so directed the smoke
as to fill the fort so full that the men
could not see each other, and. with the
hot, stifling air it was as much: as a man
could do to breathe. Soon they were
obliged to cover their faces with wet cloths
in order to get along at all, so dense was
&e smoke and scorching the heat. But
few. cartridges were left, and the guns were
fired slowly; nor could more cartridges be
made on account of the sparks falling in
every part of the works. A gun was fired
every now and then only to list the fleet
and the people in the town know that the
fort had not been silenced. The isannon
iers could not see to aim, much less where
About this time the shells and ammunt- '
tion in the upper service-magazines ex
ploded, scattering the towers, and upper
portions of the buildings in every direc
tion. The crash of the beams, the roar
or the flames, the rapid explosion of the
shells, and the shower of fragments of the
forts, with the blackness of; the smoke,
made the scene indescribably terrific and
grand. This continued for several hours.
Meanwhile, the main gates Were burned
down, the chassis of the barbette guns
were burned away on the gorge", and the
upper portions,of the towers Shad been de
molished by shfells.
HEROIC CONDUCT OF THE MEN.
There was not a portion of the fort
where a breath of air could be got for
hours, except through a wet cloth. The
fire spread to, the men’s quarters, on the
right hand and on the left, and endangered
the powder which had been: taken out of
the magazines. The men went through
the fire and covered the battels with wet
cloths, but the danger of the fort’s blow
ing up became so imminent that they were
obliged to heave the barrels out of the
embrasures. While the poWder was be
ing thrown overboard, all the guns of Fort
Moultrie, of the iron floating battery, of
tbe enfilade battery, and die Dahlgren
battery, worked with increased vigor.
All but four barrels were thus disposed
of, and those remaining were wrapped in
many thicknesses of wet woolen blankets.
But three cartridges, were left, and these
were iu the guns. About this time the
flag-staff of Fort Sumter was shot down,
some fifty feet from the truck, this being
the nipth time that it had been struck by
i shot. The man cried outj “The flag ie
down; it has been shot away.” In an
instant, Lieut. Hall rushed; forward and
brought the flag away. Buj; the halyards
were so intrinsically tangled that it could
not ha righted; it was, therefore nailed
to the staff, and planted upon the ram

ROGER A. PRYOR DRINKS POISON*
An incident occurred during the can*
nonading which for ita peculiarity*
serves particular mention. Roger A.
Pryor, of Virginia, ex-member of Oou-
Sess, was one ot the second 'deputation
at waited upon Major' Anderson. He
was. the very embodiment of Southern
chivalry. Literally dressed to kill, brist
ling with bowie knives and revolver*, like
a walking arsenal, he appeared to think
himself individually capable of capturing
the fort, without any extraneous assist'
ance. Inside of tho fort he seemed W
think himself master of everything
monarch of all he surveyed—and, in
keeping with his pretension, seeing upon
the table what appeared to be a glass of
brandy, he drank it without ceremony.
Surgeon Crawford, who had witnessed the
feat, approached him and said: “Sir,
what you have drank is poison—it was
the iodide of potassium —you are a dead
man!” The representative of chivalry
instantly collapsed, bowie-knives, revol
vers and all, and passad into the hands of

LACONIC ACCOUNT AND A GOOD DJSFKfcttE.
While the reporters were fleeted At e
table, busily engaged in transcribing the
’various statements they had received from
the officers of Major Anderson's coni'
mand, an officer who had previously stood
quietly in the background, suddenly ad
dressed them in a most emphatic maftuer,
substantially as follows: “Gentlemen of

faithful to his post, and the public may
be assured that hunger and want of act'
munition alone caused us to leave Ectt

terrible fire from all quartern, and it was
only by exercising the utmost core that
thq officers were enabled to preserve the
men from a terrible slaughter. Yon may
