THE CIVIL WAR !
DETAILS OF THE SURRENDER OF FORT SUMPTER
• CHARLESTO fr, April 13—Evening.
Hostilities have for the present ceased, and
the victory belongs to South Carolina.
With the display of the flag a truce on the
ramparts of Fort Sumpter, at half past one
o'clock the firing ceased, and an unconditional
surrender was made. The Carolinians had no
idea that the fight was at an end. Soon after
the flag staff of Major Anderson was shot sway.
Colonel Wigfall, the aid of General Beaure
gard, at his commander's request, went to Fort
Sumpter with a white flag, to offer assistance
in extinguishing the * flames. He approached
the burning fortress from Morris Island, and
while the firing was raging on all sides he ef
fected a landing at Sumpter. He approached
a Port hole and was met by Major Anderson,
the . commandant.of the fort. The latter said
that he had just displayed a white flag, but the
firing was kept up nevertheless.
Colonel Wigfall replied that Major Anderson
must haul down the American flag; that no
parley would be granted—surrender or fight
was the word.
Major Anderson then hauled down his flag
and . displayed only the flag of truce. All firing
instantly ceased, and two others of Gen. Beau
x egard's staff, ex-Senator Chesnut and ex-Gov
ernor Manning,came over in a boat, and stipu
lated with Major Anderson that his surrender
should be unconditional for the present,subject
to the terms of Gen. Beauregard.
Major Anderson was allowed to remain with
his men in actual possession of the fort, while
Messrs. Che nut and Manning came over to the
city, accompanied by a member of the Palmetto
Guards bearing the colors of his company.—
These were met at the pier by hundreds of
citizens, and as they marched up the streets to
the General's quarters, the crowd. was swelled
to ;thousands. Shouts rent the air and the
wildest joy was manifested on occasion of the
After the surrender a boat with an officer and
ten men was sent from one of the four ships in
the offing to Gen. Simmons, commanding on
Morria. Island, With the request that a merchant
ship or one of the vessels of the United States,
be allowed to enter and take off the commander
and garrison of Fort Sumpter.
Gen. Simmons replied that if no hostilities
were attempted during the night and no effort
was made to reinforce or re-take Fort Sumpter,
he would give an answer at 9 o'clock on Sunday
morning. The officer signified that he was
satisfied with this, and returned to his vessel.
Your correspondent accompanied the officers
of Gen. Beauregard's staff on a visit to Fort
Sumpter. None but the officers, however, were
allowed to land. They went dim. in a steamer,
and carried three fire-engines for the purpose
of putting out the flames.
The fire, however, had been previously extin
guished by the exertions of Major Anderson
and his men. The visitors reported that Major
Anderson surrendered because his quarters and
barracks were destroyed, and he had no hope
of re-inforcements, as the fleet lay idly by
during thirty hours, and either would not or
could not help him. Besides this, his men
were prostrated from over exertions. There
were but five of them hurt, fourbadly, and one,
it is thought, mortally, but the rest were worn
out, and physically incapable of continuing the
The explosions that were heard and seen
from the city in the morning were caused by
the bursting of loaded shells ignited by the
fire, which could not be removed quick enough.
The fire in the barracks was caused by the
quantities of hot shot poured in from Fort
Within Fort Sumpter everything but the
easemates is an utter ruin. The whole interior
looks like a blackened mass of ruins. - Many
of the guns are dismounted. The side oppo
site the iron battery at Cummings' Point is the
hardest dealt with. The rifled. cannon from
the battery played great havoc with Fort
Sumpter, and the walls look like a honey-comb.
Near the top is a breach as large as a cart.—
The side opposite Fort Moultrie is also honey
combed extensively, as is that opposite the
Fort Moultrie is badly damaged. The offi
cers' quarters and barracks are torn to pieces.
The frame houses on the island are riddled with
shot, and in many instances the whole sides of
the houses are torn out.
The fire in Fort Sumpter was put out and re
caught three times during the day.
Dr. Crawford, Major Anderson's surgeon, is
slightly wounded in the face.
It is positively asserted that none of the Car
olina troops are injured.
Major Anderson, and all his officers and men,
still remain in Fort Sumpter. I approached
near enough to the wall to see him bid his vis
itors adieu. In addition to this, conversations
that were had with him were repeated to me.
A boat was sent from the fort to-night to
officially notify the fleet that Major Anderson
It is not known when the Carolinians will
occupy Fort Sumpter, or what is to be done
with the vanquished.
Every one is satisfied with the 'victory, and
happy that no blood was shed.
In the city, after the surrender, the bells
were rung and salutes fired.
[The above is from the special correspondent
of the Associated Press, who reached Charles
ton only on Saturday, and may be relied on as
CuAnLaaTon, April 14-9 o'clock A. M.—The
negotiations were completed last night, and
Major Anderson with his command will evacu
ate Fort Sumpter this morning. It is supposed
that he will embark on board one of the war
vessels off our bar.
When Fort Sumpter was in flames, and Ma
jor Anderson could only lire his guns at long
intervals, the men at our batteries cheered at
every fire which the gallant Major made in his
last struggles, but looked defiance at the vessels
of war, whose men, like cowards, remained
outside without firing a gun, or attempting to
divert the fire of a single battery from Fort
10 o'olock.—The steamer "Isabel" is now
steaming up, and will take General Beaure
gard to Fort Sumpter, which will be turned
over by Major Anderson to the Confederate
It is now reported that Major Anderson and
his command will proceed to New York on the
CHARLESTON, April 14. Major Anderson and
his men will leave to-night at 11 o'clock, in the
steamer "babel," for New York.
The war fleet is still outside.
The scene when Anderson and his men took
formal leave of Port Sumpter was a thrilling
and impressive one.
THE FEELING IN THZ OITIES.-..VIEWS OF THE
The war news from Charleston has produced
a thrilling excitement throughout the entire
country. Nothing that occurred during the
Mexican war equalled it. It was then a battle
with a foreign enemy. Now it is a brother in
deadly, hostile array against brother—the be
ginning, perhaps, of a long and bloody civil
The subjoined accounts show the feeling ex
hibited in the principal cities ;
THE WAR NEWS IN PIIILADREPECIA
The most intense anxiety and excitement
prevailed in Philadelphia on Saturday in re
ference to the warlike operations in Charleston
harbor. "Sumpter," "Anderson," "Moultrie,"
"Morris Island," "Beauregard," "Jeff. Davis,"
"Porter," and other names, were familiar in
the mouths of all, and the harbor of Charles
ton was the great exciting centre of attraction
to all observers. Some few refused to believe
that there had been a fight at all; while the
great mass of people felt assured that a des
perate conflict was going on, but with more
damage to the southern rebels than they would
allow to be known through the telegraph.—
During the day, throngs of people visited the
newspaper offices, and eagerly devoured all
the news which reached there.—Bulletin
THE NEWS IN NEW YORK
The news from Charleston created a perfect
furore in New York, and several of the militia
regiments were summoned to hold meetings for
consultation. The Commercial, referring to the
early dispatches from Charleston, says:
While no doubt was thrown upon the fact
that an action had taken place at Charleston,
and that the war had opened, y'et some were
of the opinion that the result had not been so
one-sided as was reported, and that Sumpter's
guns could scarcely rain shot and shell for any

port fleet was commented upon in various terms,
and the conclusion seemed to prevail that if the
fleet had not really made its appearance at the
mouth of Charleston harbor, it was because the

cognizant of the attack upon Sumpter, and had
taken the necessary steps to accomplish a coup

VIE WS OP THE PRESS
The expressions of the press in regard to
the commencement of hostilities between the
United States and Confederate States are of
course to be of varied character, according to
the proclivities in regard to the great abstract
question of the rights of the South, or the
lower mere partizan standard of the respective
The New York Journal of Commerce says:
We are this morning called to record one of
the most afflicting chapters in American his
tory, via : the commencment of actual warfare
between different portions of what was but re
cently the United States. We fear it is but the
beginning of the end. It will now require all
the wisdom, forbearance and moderation any
where to be found, and more than can reasona
bly be expected of frail human nature, to pre
vent a protracted and bloody war between
bretheen who have heretofore, on a hundred
battle-fields, stood shoulder to shoulder in de
fence of their common rights. That' wisdom,
forbearance and moderation, we fervently in
voke from both the belligerent parties ; and we
pray heaven to interpose for our relief in this
time of our greatest need.
We will not undertake at this moment to ap
portion the measure of fault or crime on either
side which has led to the present catastrophe.
No doubt it has been precipitated by the send
ing of a fleet with troops by the U. S. Govern
ment for the relief (as was understood) of Fort
Sumpter ; but on the other hand, it may be said
that this action of the U. S. Government was
occasioned by the cutting off of supplies from
Fort Sumpter by the Confederate authorities,
which rendered it necessary to send them from
New York or some other point. To this again
it may be replied, that the cutting off of sup
plies by the Confederate authorities was caused
by the long-continued delay of the U. S. autho
rities to take or consent to any measui es of ad
justment of the pending differences, thus leaving
the Canfederate authorities subject to the neces
sity of maintaining a large military force at
Charleston for an indefinite period, or aban
doning their claims altogether. The Confede
rate authorities must, however, bear the re
sponsibility (and it is a heavy one) of commen
cing the actual firing.
The New York Post (Republican) of Satur
day evening not only indulges a melo-dramatic
perversion that all the great preparations at
Charleston were merely to murder 70 brave
martyrs, but adds : •
The Confederate traitors have chosen war.
After four months of elaborate preparation they
have at last made haste to attack Major An
derson and his small force, before his succors
could arrive. This is a day which will be ever
memorable in our annals. To-day treason has
risen from blustering words to cowardly deeds.
They have deliberately chosen the issue of bat
tle. To-day, who hesitates in his allegiance is
a traitor with them. But there is no hesita
tion, The country responds as one man to the
call upon its resources. We have been patient
till patience was almost a vice. The Adminis
tration has done all, and more than all that
the most scrupulous regard for life demanded
To-day the nation looks to the Government
to put down treason forever. It will not grudge
the men or the money which are needed. We
have enjoyed for eighty years the blessings of
liberty and constitutional government. It is a
small sacrifice we are now to lay upon the altar.
In the name of constitutional liberty, in the
name of law and order, in the name of all that
is dear to freemen, we shall put down treason,
and restore the, supremacy of the Constitution.
Let but the Government prove itself equal to
the great occasion, and the people will not fail
Let the Legislature of New York follow
Pennsylvania's example. It has already taken
one step in .the right direction. Let there be
no delay in consummating its action. The bill
which confers upon GoSernor Morgan powers
similar to those which have been conferred
upon Gov. Curtin, should at once be made a
law. The offer of the services of the Empire
State to the Government should not long lag
behind that of the Keystone. These are times
to test the patriotism of the country. Treason
has culminated in wax. It behooves all true
men to array themselves on the side of right
and law, and he who fails to strengthen the
hands of the Administration at this critical
juncture deserves not the name of American.
The N. Y. Commercial (Rep.) says:
Until the nature and result of this bellige
rent proceeding are correctly known, it cannot
be ascertained how far the spirit of rebellion
will spread, and what will be the effect upon
the people generally. Most grave questions
arise in connection with the event. Will the
border States take part with the States already
in open rebellion ? We cannot doubt that

however they may decide, this unprovoked
attack upon the Federal Government will tend
to unite the free States as one man in support
of the Government, and that the omnipotent
strength of a willing and loyal people will
prove too powerful for its adversaries.
The same jou anal is seriously apprehensive
of the safety of the National Capital. It says
there is great danger of its safety, and adds:
If it were known tharan attack of the sort
would be actually made, we presume that
within one week twenty thousand men could
be thrown into Washington from the free
States; but men are not accustomed to act upon
mere surmises, even though their hopes of
peace have been so rudely shocked by the af
fair at Charleston. The great danger arises
front a sudden inroad from Virginia, in con
nection with an insurrection of the disorderly
elements collected at the capital. Two main
lines of railroad, independent of tributaries
and the Potomac river, approach Washington
from the South. and these would doubtless be
put into requisition. Even the Baltimore rail
road might be used for the purpose of throw
ing the gang of ruffians who infest that city
into the doomed spot, before tearing up the
rails so as to prevent the arrival of reinforce
ments of troops from the North. We allude
to these dangers threatening the city of Wash
ington, not to excite alarm, but to urge the ne
cessity of taking every precaution in time.
The Philadelphia American (Republican) is
disposed to find fault with Major Anderson.
If we may believe the tale borne to us by the
telegraph, two of the guns of Fort Sumpter
were silenced, while, strange to say, the firing
from that fort did no damage to its assailants.
How this could be without utter inefficiency in
the working of the guns or treachery on the fort

only about enough to Work the guns of one side

THE NAVAL COMMANDANT OF THE UNITED STATES
Lieut. David H. Porter, the commander of
the United States sloop-of-war Powhatan, now
supposed to be off Charleston, is the command
ant of all the naval forces in that quarter.—
He is a son of Commodore David Porter, of the
United States navy, who became famous in the
war of 1812. The subject of our notice is a
native of Pennsylvania, and entered the United
States navy in 1829. He was a midshipman
during the war with Mexico, and was with the
fleet near Vera Cruz. Shortly after the Mexi
can war Midshipman Porter was promoted to a
lieutenancy, and was assigned to special duty
in the command of the United States mail
steamship Georgia, plying between New York
and Aspinwall. Lieut. Porter continued in
this position for upwards of two years, and
gained many friends by his kind and urbane
treatment of the California travelers, and was
frequently the recipient of commendatory reso
lutions applauding his skill as a seaman.—
Lieut. Porter's next service was in one of the
the new steam sloops-of-war, and last fall he
was ordered to proceed to the Pacific Ocean, and
take charge of the coast survey party near Cali
fornia. He also bad command of the camel
expedition. Lieutenant Porter is of medium
height, well built, and has an olive complexion,
caused by active service in the tropical sun;
his hair is slightly tinged with gray. He is
about 45 years of age, and stands very high in
his profesbion as a brave and talented officer.
