THE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
The fact that the House of Representatives
was organized at the late extra session of Con
gress will facilitate the delivery of the Presi
dent's Message, so that, if a quorum is present,
we may expect to receive that document on
Monday next. Our arrangements are such as
to be able to give the message to our readers in
a very few hours after its reception in this office.
If we receive it at noon on Monday, we will
print it in our evening edition, and if we do not
receive a copy of the document until after we
have gone to press with the evening edition, it
shall appear iD the regular edition of the Mors
xxo TELEGRAPH. We will also publish the De
partment4eports, or. such synopsis as will con
vey all the necessary information of the opera
tions of those branches of the government, as
soon after they are received as a large force of
compositors .• can put them into type.
SINCE THZ UTTER APOSTACY and shameless
avowal of a determination to oppose the gov
ernment,' made by Charles J. Biddle, we are re
minded that he was forced on the people as a
candidate for Congress, by a certain class of
politicians in Philadelphia whose boast of con
servatism makes them very popular in commer
cial circles. The "respectability" and family
connection of Mr. Biddle gave him the benefit
of . this conservative influence, and into this cir
cle of "divine social" attraction, honest Repub
licans were enticed, their votes obtained by the
false pretense of Biddle's devotion to the Union,
and an honest, straight for ward Republican candi
date 'sacrificed to please this conservation. The
`organ of tape and calico is Philadelphia, the
North American, was the most urgent of those
who were anxious that this conservative senti
ment should become triumphant in the person
of the immaculate Charles J. Biddle, while the
Press, a semi Democratic journal, opposed his
election, on the ground that Biddle's loyalty
would become a doubtful quality when invest
ed with power. The result has proven to the
Republicans who honestly supported Mr. Bid
dle, that they were then deceived and are
now about to be betrayed—and as he has
acted, so may we anticipate the course
of every Breckinridge Democrat who was
either , elected to Congress or the Legislature
m , Union candidates. They will oppose the
administration in its efforts to crush re
bellion' whenever an opportunity is presented,
and claim the result of their election as the
'triumph of those principles which have been
paying homage to slavery for thirty years. It
is not too late, however, for the honest and de
termined Republicans of the land to be warned
and instructed on the subject of locofoco de
moralization and deception. Let us gird on our
armors now for the battles of the future, and
scorn every proposition hereafter that would
unite us in bonds with our enemies. Our party
organization is as essential to the success, peace
and prosperity of the American Union, as is the
triumph of our arms. When we are fully im
pressed with this fact, the contests in the halls
of legislation and on the fields of battle will be
'short and decisive.
Th BOROUGH or AlrmuzrowN, one of the
thriving towns scattered all over Dauphin
county, has acted nobly in contributing men
for the support of the Union cause. With a
population not exceeding two thousand, she
has'aent boo hundred and twenty-five volunteers into
the ranks of the Federal army. This, in pro
portion, exceeds that of any other borough or
city in the loyal states, and is 'none the less
gratifying because Middletown WaS the old resi
dence of the Secretary of War.
BUCHANAN'S FORTHCOMING BOOK.
The announcement that James Buchanan was
engaged in the preparation of a work designed
to be a defence of his administration, has elicited
the expression of various opinions by the press
throughout the loyal states. It is predicted
that he will have a wide hearing, for it will be
refreshing to everybody to know what he can
say in mitigation of the sentence which has
been recorded against hiin. For instance, one
might wish to know with what excuse or ex
tenuation he will meet the single 'fact stated
below, or how express his gross, willful, trai
torous neglect of a duty so plain, imperative,
and easy of performance.
On the 29th of October, 1860, Lieut. Gen.
Scott addressed a letter to President Buchanan,
in which he referred to the secession excitement,
which the conspirators were then actively fan
ning at the south, and remarked that if this
glorious Union were broken by whatever line
political madmen might contrive, there would
be no hope of re-uniting the fragthents, except
by the laceration and despotism of the sword.
Pointing out the danger, he proceeded to point
out the prevention :
"Flom a knowledge of our Southern popula
tion," he said, "it is my solemn conviction that
there is some danger of an early act of rashness,
preliminary to secession, viz: the seizure of
some or all of the following forts ; Forts Jack
son and St. Philip, on the Mississippi, below
New Orleans, both without garrisons ; Fort
Morgan, below Mobile, without a garrison ;
Forts Pickens and Mcßee, with an insufficient
garrison for one ; Fort Pulaski, below Savan
nah, without a garrison ; Forts Moultrie and
Sumter, Charleston harbor, the former with an
insufficient garrison, the latter without any ;
and Fort Monroe, Hampton Roads, without a
sufficient garrison. In my opinion, all these
works should immediately be so garrisoned as
to make any attempt to take any of them, by
surprise or coup de main, ridiculous."
General Scott then expressed the belief that
"with firmness and moderation, there was good
reason to hope that the danger of secession
might be made to pass away without one con
flict of arms, one execution, or one arrest for
Seven of the nine forts named are now in the
hands of the rebels, as foreseen by Gen. Scott.
Mr. Buchanan may possibly obtain an explana
tion from John B. Floyed, then his Secretary
of War, if indeed he thinks his inaction in eir
'eumstances so urgent, and with advice so plain
before him, require excuse. But it must re
quire uncommon assurance on his part to recall

at the present time:

if he can look down again upon the earth,which
he once honored, to inspire you all with that

Correspondence of the Telegraph
HILTON HEAD, FORT ROYAL,
November 23, 1861.
MESSRS EDITORS : You will be somewhat
surprised to receive a letter from me after so
long a silence, but as I now have the time I
will give you a short account of the dangers
that we went through. On the 19th of October
we shipped on board the Gen. W. Scott, at An
napolis, to sail to some port in the South, the
exact place we did not know. We arrived at
Fortress Monroe where we laid at anchor until
the 26th of October when we.
,set sail together
with the Steam Frigate Wabash and a whole
fleet of gun boats, men-of-war and transports,
in all about fifty sail. The first day out was
very fine, and we sailedpnder a fair sky, and I
think it was the fairest sight ever I seen. We
were always near the centre of the fleet so we
could see the other vessels all around us. The
next day it was rough, and about 3 o'clock we
got out of sight of land, for we had been sailing
along the coast. The third day out we had fair
weather, but the next day, it being the Ist of
November, then came the tug of war. About
10 o'clock in the forenoon the wind arose and it
was not long before we had to alter our course
and head out against the wind. We soon lost
sight of the other vessels, and we went on
pitching and tossing, but did not dream of dan
ger At dinner time we went to get our rice,
but we could hardly keep on our feet, and in
the evening it was too rough to cook any sup
per, so we went to bed without. About mid
night we were aroused by the alarming cry "get
up men, the ship is sinking." We jumped up
and took off the hatches when we found five
feet of water in the hold. We went to work
bailing water and soon found we were gaining
on the water a little. We now felt sure that
we could keep her afloat until morning, when
we hoped we would find relief by meeting with
some friendly sail, or that the storm might
break. It was a long and dreary night, but we
worked hard. Daylight at length appeared,
but brought us no relief. The wind, instead of
going down, increased and there was no sail in
sight. Our steam pump at length got choked
up, and we had to work the harder ; but thank
God, we kept the water out very well until
about 12 o'clock when we spied two other ves
sels to windward of us. We immediately run up
our flag, union down, as a signal of distress. It
was about 3 o'clock when the other vessels came
up with us They then tried to get our men
off and succeeded in getting off 35 or 40. They
however, soon found that the sea ran too high,
and that they could never get all the men off ;
and as the men would not work but only crowd
to get off, the captain of the ship told the other
vessel to leave us, but to keep near in case we
should go down. It was now found necessary
to cut, down our *main mast, our fore mast, and
throw overboard all our cannons— the
anchors had already gone overboard. The
water was fast beginning to come in
—six inches more and the fire would be out,
and, then our ship would be unmanageable.—
At work, however, we went again with a will,
and soon had the satisfaction of gaining on the
water. About dark we gut crackers. This was
the first we ate since the rice dinner the day
before; and we went to work again for our lives.
A man swill work hard to save his life, much
harder than if, only working for pay. We had
another hard night of it. The sea ran mountains
high and we were expecting.to meet a watery
grave every, minute. For fifty-six hours we had
death in our hands, but thank God we are all
safe once more on shore.
Towards morning the storm abated, and dur
ing the day we got the old shell bailed out
nearly dry. They now got the steam pump in
working order again, and then we were relieved.
We had fair weather again, and on the second
day after the storm we got off Port Royal
'and cast anchor. On the sth of November,
1861, the famous battle of Hilton Head com
menced ; but before proceeding any further I
will try to give you a description of the place.
Hilton Head is an island at the mouth of Sa
vannah river, in South Carolina. Near it is
another island called. Hunter's Island. Be
tween the two is a deep channel about four
miles wide. On the points facing this channel,
and on both lands, the rebels had erected strong
sand batteries and 'fortifications, and they
thought themselves impregnable. The negroes
afterwards told us that when we first came there
that they laughed at the Yankees, and said
they were glad of an opportunity to give us a
good licking. Well, on the sth the battle com
menced. Some of the gun boats got in xange
of them. They fired at them, however, and as
the larger vessels did not get over the bar that
day there was not much done. The next day
it was too rough. On the morning of the sev
enth day the battle was opened ,in earnest.—
The whole fleet opened o on Hilton Head. Broad
side after broadside were sent in until we could
not see anything 'for the smoke. The battle
lasted, just four hburs 'and a quarter, when the
traitors retreated; but left some darkeys to serve
their guns andapver their retreat. At 3 o'clock
precisely-the tfaTs and stripes were run lip where

Particulars of the Engagement.
THE PENSACOLA OBSERVER ON
THE RESULT OF THE FIGHT
BALTIMORE, Nov. 30.
The American has received the following intel
ligence from the South.
The Richmond Dispatch of the 29th gives the
following particulars of the fight at Pensacola,
taken from the Pensacola Observer of the 22d
and 23d inst.
The fight commenced on Friday and the
Observer of the 22d thus announces the begin
ing of the fight.
At five minutes past 10 o'clock this morning
a heavy and continous firing commenced at the
forts below. What it is, or on which side it
commenced, we are yet unable to say. Up to
this writing (one o'clock) the firing still con
tinues and we cau only give it and hope that
the bombardment has opened in good earnest.
We shall give the news as fast as we get it.
We learn from a person just from the navy
yard that the fire was opened by Fort Pickens
. upon the confederate steamer Times and was
returned by our batteries and forts. The IL
S. frigate Niagara is trying to cross the bar for
the purpose of entering the harbor.
The excitement in town is immense.
Tim business houses are closed and the house
tops are crowded with the excited populace.
The Observer of the 23d has the following
The firing as we stated yesterday began from
Fort Pickens. The whole of their firing during
the morning was directed at the steamer Times,
but with very little effect. The Times came
up last night and with the exception of two or
three little holes made with rifle shot, she is
unhurt. This shows that their guns are of very
inferior quality or that Brown and his Yankees
are all drunk—very probably the latter.
The steamer Nelms was also in the engage
ment with the steamer Times at the beginning
of the fire, but only one shot struck her and
that did not do much damage. The Nelms
went over to the mainland and found the Flori
da regiment all right.
In passing Billy Wilson's batteries she gave
them a couple of shots, which were returned
The U. S. frigate Niagara tried hard to come
in, but the reception was too warm and she had
to back out.
The only loss of life we can hear of was a pri
vate of the Louisiana regulars and the wife of
the sergeant of the marine corps. Both killed
by the explosion of a shell in the navy yard.
A great many shot and shell fell in the yard,
but did very little damage to the buildings.
Our guns were worked all day and must have
told with terrible effect upon the other side.
We think that the greatest damage done was to
one of the ships of war which ventured too near
The editor proceeds with a tirade of abuse
against.the Yankees in general and Col. Brown
in particular. He speaks of Brown as follows :
"But the meanest and most contemptible act
was the execution of the threats made some
time ago by that prince of hardened scoundrels,
Harvey Brown, that he would not respect the
hospitals. One shot was so well aimed at the
building that .it went through it but did no
damage. The baseness of this act places this
blackguard below the lowest cut throat and vag
abond of New York.!"
The account continues : At thirteen minutes
to eleven o'clock this morning the fire was re
opened and still c,ontiues at a very brisk rate.
The people are not so much excited as they were
yesterday, and we can see every appearance of
a determination to resist to the last extremity
if need be, but every one seems to place unlim
ited confidence in our success.
We hope now that it will continue till the
conflict is settled. Hurrah for the southern
confederacy, and hurrah for a little more grape.
The Montgomery Advertiser of the 24th says :
For more than six months past the garrisons of
Fort Pickens and Pensacola have faced each
other, making preparations for the desperate
struggle which might be commenced at any
moment, but the suspense is now over; the day
so long wished for by our gallant volunteers,
who have been compelled to pass the summer
in comparative inactivity has now arrived.
The fortifications on each side side are very
likely to be, fully tested ;fore either party will
acknowledge .a defeat. 'Me works erected by
the confederate forces .have doubtless been con
structed with great sip, and we should judge
by this time are ina"rtdition to withstand the
combined assaults of the fort and the Yankee
fleet. " '
This will be no child's play on either side.
It will be no Hatteras or Port Royal affair. The
Confederates are to strongly entrenched too en
tertain the ikea of succumbing to anything like
an equal force. How long it will continue no
one can tell, but when it is announced that
there is a cessation of hostilities we hope to be
able to announce that the flag of the Confeder
ate States floats in triumph over the walls of
