GRAPHIC DESCRIPTION OF HER PRO•
BALTIMOB.E, April 12-6 P. M
I said two days since that we were looking
for the Merrimac and sunshine together. Both
are here this morning.
The day opened bright and clear, with the
broad expanse of Hampton Roads almost un
ruffled by a wave. About 7 o'clock a signal
gun from the Minnesota turned all eyes towards
Sewall's Point, and coming out from under land
almost obscured by the dim haze, the Merrimac
was seen, followed by the Yorktown, James
town and four smaller vessels —altogether seven
" There was an instantaneous activity.
among the transports and vessels in the Upper
Roads to get out of the way. Steamboats,
several of which were crowded with troops,
moved down out of danger. Steam-tugs ran,
whistling, screaming about, towing strings of
vessels behind them, whilst sloops, schooners
and tugs, taking advantage of what air there
was, got up all sail and moved out of harm's
" In the course of an hour the appearance of
the crowded Roads was greatly altered. The
forest of masts between the Fortress and Sew
all's Point had disappeared and the broad open
expanse of water bore on its surface only the
rebel fit and two French and one English
men-of-war, which, with steam up, still main
tained their position.
"81 o'cLocK, A. M.—For the last hour the
manoeuvres of the rebel fleet have apparently
been directed towards decoying our fleet up to
wards Sewall's Point. When the Merrimac
first appeared she stood directly across the
mouth of the Elizabeth river, followed by her
consorts, as if they were bound to Newport
News. The Merrimac approached the English
sloop-of-war, and, after apparently communi
cating with her, fell slowly around and moved
back towards her consorts in the rear.
"The French and English vessels then moved
up as if they had been informed that the Lower
Roads were to be the scene of the conflict, and
had been warned to get out of range. For an
hour the rebel fleet kept changing position
without making any decided advance in any
"On our part no movement was made. The
Monitor, with steam up and in fighting trim,
lay quietly near her usual anchorage. The
Naugatuck, (Stevens' battery,) came up and
took a position alongside of the Monitor. Sig
nals were exchanged with our vessels, the
Fort, and the Rip Raps, bat no movement
was made. Curiosity grew rapidly into sus
A BOLD BTICOKA.
"At length the Yorktown moved rapidly up,
and, after advancing well towards Newport
News, steamed rapidly towards Hampton. The
object was then seen to be the capture of three
sailing vessels two brigs and a schooner—
transports, which were lying either aground or
had not been furnished with a steam tug in
order to make their escape.
"The bold impudence of the manueanvre,
contrasted with the apparent apathy of our
fleet, excites surprise and indignation. There
was a rebel boat, not built for war purposes,
leaving the protection of the Merrimac and
her consorts, where it appeared, to unprofes
bional eyes, she could easily be cut off, and
yet no attempt was made to do it. Of course,
there were good reason for this policy, though
the crowd 'could not seet it.'
"Tne Yorktown steamed rapidly along the
beach from Newport News to Hampton, and
sent a boat to each of the vessels (which were
apparently deserted by their crews,) and steam
ed towards them. A small tug boat loaded
with troops followed whilst the Jamestown lay
off about it mile distant.
"9 o'crocx, a. ss.—The rebel tug boat has
made fast to the largest brig and is towing her
off. The Yorktown is still in the bend above
Hampton. The Naugatuck has moved up and
is apparently getting withinpuge of the York
town. There is no other move on the part of
our fleet. Our inaction seems unaccountable,
except upon the supposition that the desire is
to get the rebels futther down. Still the sight
is a painful one, to see these vessels carried off
without on attempt at resistance.
si o'clock, A. M.—The rebels have ac
complished the capture of the three vessels,
the Yorktown towing off two of them, and the
tug taking hold of the third. Not a shot was
fired on either side. The Merrimac maintains
her position about half way between Sewall's
and Pig Points. One of the French war steam
ers is coming down to the Lower Roads. She
has a water schooner in to w, which was along
side of her when the Merrimac appeared.
"One of our gun boats went up along shore
but too late to prevent the
capture of the three vessels, if that was the
purpose. The Yorktown and tug-boat towed
she 'prizes well up toward Norfolk, when some
smalt tugs came out and took charge of them.
Upon the brig they hoisted the American flag
at half mast.
"Di o'clock.—There is no change in posi
tion of affairs. The rebel fleet lies in line of
battle, stretching from Sewall's Point up to
wards Pig Point.
ik"The Merrimac is black with men wholare
clustered on the ridge of her iron craft. The
other vessels are also thronged with men. In
all the rebels show twelve craft, all except the
Merrimac, Yorktown and Jamestown being in
significant tug boats. The Jamestown is armed
with a prow,
which can be seen protruding
about six feet beyond the water line of her bow.
The position is simply one of defence on both
sides. The rebels are challenging us to come
up to their field of battle ; we are daring them
to come down. The French and English ves
sels still lie up beyond the rebels, the French
vessels not more than a mile from the Merri
and the Englishman further np. Not a
shot has been fired by either party.
"12 o'cLook M.—No fight yet. The Merri
mac occasionally shifts her position but does not
come further out. The Yorktown and some of
the smaller tugs have gone up to Norfolk.
"2 o'cr, oat, P. M. The position of affairs
has not changed, and there seems little proba
bility of any fight to day. The Merrimac and
all the rebel fleet keep their position and so
does our fleet. It is possible that the rebels may
come down with the flood tide, an hour or two
hence, but it looks as if both parties hesitated
to assume the offensive.
WHAT IS SAID AND THOUGHT
"The events of the morning are much com
mented on, and have caused considerable feel
ing of irritation and some humiliation. Be
yond the capture of the three transports, the
demonstration of the rebel fleet has been little
more than a reconnoilamme. It mud be eon

Marriges and Deaths to be charged as regular ad
ceded, however, that the rebels have had the
best of the affair. The capture of the three
prizes was a bold stroke, and we can well im
agine the hurrah with which their arrival at
Norfolk was greeted. Whether they might
not have been saved, and the rebels made
to suffer for their temerity, is a point upon
which I shall not venture a decided opinion
"Their position was close on the beach,
about half-way between Hampton and Newport
News, and from four to five miles distant from
the position of the Merrimac. A light draught
boat or two, sent up in time, might have saved
them. The Naugatuck started up, but was a
little too late to be of effectual service.
" Of course our naval authorities are acting
upon some concerted plan and under definite
orders, the carrying out of which is considered
of more importance than the saving of two or
three small vessels. The capture was effected
almost under the bows of the French and En
glish cruisers, and we may be sure that our
national prestige was not increased in their
eyes by what they saw.
AN EXCHANGE OF SHOTS.
"4/ P. M.—For some hours the Merrimac has
continued moving about, sometimes advancing
towards the Monitor, as if challenging her to
combat, and then falling back. About an hour
ainee, she moved over in the direction of Hamp
ton, and fired a shot towards the gun-boat Octo
rara, lying in the bend near Hampton, and fully
four miles distant. The shot fell at least a mile
short. The Octorara immediately replied, bat
her shots also fell short, though well in line.
The Naugatuck then took part and discharged
her rifled gun, making a splendid shot. The
ball fell beyond the Merrimac full half a mile.
The Naugatuck then fired at the gun-boats
Yorktown and Jamestown, which were lying
beyond the Merrimac. The practice was excel
lent, and her gun showed an extraordinary
length of range. Turning her attention from
the Merrimac, her shots were all directed at the
rebel gun-boats, arid of the four fired, all ap
peared to strike near the objects which were
" The rebel vessels fell slowly back, and the
firing ceased. The practice and prowess of the
Naugatuck's rifled gun excited great admira
tion, and if brought into play this morning,
would probably have prevented the rebels from
capturing any prizes.
"Aa I close, at 5 o'clock, P. M., the firing
has ceased, and the Merrimac appears to be re
turning to °Laney Island. We look for warm
