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 welcome tidings. 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 fight. 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 Moultrie. 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 floating battery, 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 had surrendered. 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 entirely correct.—REPORTER.] 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 Sumpter. 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 States, - It is now reported that Major Anderson and his command will proceed to New York on the steamer “Isabel." 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 PRESS, as. 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 war. 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 length of time without doing some personal damage. The reported non-appearance of the trans 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 commander of' the expedition had been made cognizant of the attack upon Sumpter, and had taken the necessary steps to accomplish a coup de rear, and surround some of the batteries on the land aide. 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 journals. 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 of it. • 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 it. 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 ?

United . NO. 192. 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. It says: 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 we find it difficult to.perceive. It is true the garrison was miserably deficient in numbers— only about enough to Work the guns of one side of the fort. Still the fortification was under stood to be very strong and secure, and only a few of the numerous batteries of the South Carolinians were engaged in the attack. Just at this time when, of all others, courage and a bold front were needed in the fort, we gather fripm Major Anderson's correspondence with the secession leaders that he had no hope of preserving his position, and plainly.told the enemy so.. The garrison bad been regularly furnished with provisions from Charleston up to Satur day last, and since that time they have run so short, it would seem, that Major Anderson al ready anticipated being starved out in three days. The Philadelphia Journal says : The military men are in their glory, or would be if they had some good muskets. Two regi ments have been formed recently, intended for immediate service -whenever called for by Gov. Curtin or President Lincoln. Each regiment consists of eight companies. The "Wide Awakes" are drillino , secretly in this city to the number of five thousand, and some of .the companies are strong and are proficient enough to be drilled into battalions and taken. to the field. WAR MOVEMENTS--NAVAL PREPARARIONS The steamer Philadelphia was chartered at. Nees York by the Government, on Friday, as a transport, and pre-. sea put on board to pare her for sea with all possible dispatch,— She is rapidly filling up with provisions. The steamship Ericsson, originally built to test the caloric engine, but transformed into a. side wheel steamer, was also chartered on Saturday, to be held in reserve for any emergency. The Vandeibilt and Ocean Queen, it is. believed, have likewise been chartered. The work of preparing the Wabash, Savan nah and Perry for sea does not flag at the Brooklyn navy yard. They will each have a heavy armament. The Wabash will be ready for sea next week; the Savannah in about three weeks, and the Perry in a very few days. Advices have been received from Washington, which seem to indicate that every regiment of the army will be filled up to its war complement at once. The Boston Journal reports that wonderful activity prevails at the Charlestown. navy.-yard• It says: " The Minnesota will be provisioned for five -months, and orders have been issued to have the stores for both the Minnesota and Mississippi got ready with all possible dispatch. The force in the provision and clothing department has been doubled, and the men are busily engaged in re-packing pork, beef, beans, rice, flour, and other substantial provender, for the great communities who are to go out in the above ships. The stores for the Minnesota will include about 3,000 barrels of different articles. The Vincennes is also to be fitted out immedi ately for the African coast. 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. THE ALLIATA.RIt COMMANDER.
