Tbe cannonading was terrific— The flashes of the guns lightning up the J whole horizon, tbe bursting of shells in tbe j clear atmosphere, and the whizzing of shot, rendered the scene one of awful sublimity.— Varioas speculations wereentertained as to the cause of firing, when it was discovered tbat all our batteries on James' and Sullivan's Islands as wetf as .those in the harbor, had simultaneously opened tire on Morris' Island. Tlie enemy made no reply, doubtless owing to the bot tire keeping them close under cover. The cannonading was kept up for an hour linda half with rifled and mortar shells', most* ly the latter.

When our paper was put to press last week, our exchanges gave us items of the deepest nnd most exciting interest from the enemy's movements from Vicksburg. It will be re collected that Sherman had moved with ar immense column from Vicksburg, amounting to from thirty to forty thousand effective mer that he was destroying the bridges in his rear and devastating the country in his march, and that his army was progressing through c wild and barren country, yielding him nc subsistence, but for what point he was di recting the,blow he intended, was all a mat" ter of conjecture. It was generally thought the movement was designed against Mobil* on the land side, whilst Farragut should assail that place from the water with his fleet, Sherman's movement was certainly a most daring one, one of the most daring and most bold of the war—aad bad it succeeded would have worked untold mischief...
