Xotwithstandin I haint writ mueh for the papers of late, nobody needn't flatter their elves that the underlined ij ded. On the oontry, ? 1 fftill live,,T whioh word* was spoken by Danvil Webster, who was a able man. Even the old-line wbigs of Boston will admit that. Webster is ded now, howsever, and his mactle has probly fallen into tbe hands of some dealer in 2nd hand close, who can't sell it. Leastways nobody pears to be goin round wearin it to any particler extent, now days. The rigiment of whom I was kurnel finerly concluded they was better adapted as Home Gards,which accounts for your not hearin of me, ear this, where the bauls is tbe thickest and where the cannon doth roar. But as a American eiti&en 1 sball never eease to admire the masterly adTin?*M on r trnr^a m H a nn WaaKimrtAn ? ?MVV VH? * iUWV* w vu WW nouiugvvu II V1U Bull Run, a short time ago. It was well dun. I spoke to my wife 'boot it at the time. My wife said it was well dun. It having there 1 bin detarmined to perteet Baldinsville at all bassards, and as there was no apprehensions of anj immejit danger, I thought 1 would go orf onto a pleasure tower. Accordingly I put on a olean Biled Shirt and started for Washington. I went there to see the Prints Napoleon, and not to see the place, which I will here take occasion to i/oaarve is about as uninterea'in a locality as there is this side of J. Davis's futer home, if be ever doos die, and where I reckon they'll' make it so warm for him that he will si for bis summer close. It is easy enufT to see why a man gees to the poorhouse or the penitentiary. It's beeaws he can't help it. But why he sboul'd voluntarily go and live in Washington is entirely beyond my comprehension, and I can't A v fiA fairav n af tVi at cw saw i*?i vt uvi iu??> I pat ap to a leadin hotel. I saw the landlord and sed, '* How d'je do, Square!" " Fifty cent*, sir,** wa* the reply. 44 Bir?" 44 Half a dollar. We charge twenty-fire cents for lookm at ihe landlord and fifty cent* foj ppeakin to him. If yoa want sapper, a boy will show yoa to the dinin room for twenty-five cents Yoar room bein in the tenth story, it will cost yoa a dollar to be shown ap there." 44 How much do yoa ax a man for breathin in this equinomikal tavan said I. " Ten cents a Breth," was his reply. Washington hotels are very reasonable in their charges. (N. B.?This is Sarkassum ] I sent an a keerd to the Prints, and was immejitly adhered betoro him. He received me kindly end axed me to sit down. " I have cum t* pay respecks to yoa, Mister VT * \ _ r ? ? _ ? i ... Mspeieon, nop id i see you naie ana narty. ' "lam quite well," he?ed; "air you well, ?r,M " Seund M a cuss,'' I answered. He seemed to be pleased with my ways, and we entered into conversation to onct. " How's Lewis?" I axed, and he sed the Emperor was well. Eugeny was likewise well, he sed. Then I axed him was Lewis a good provider? Did he oum hom home arly nites7 Did he perfoom her bedroom at a onseasonable hour with gin and tanzy? Did he go to the Lodge oa nites when there wasn't any Lodge7 Did he often bar to go down town to meet a friend? Did he hav a extensix acquaintance among poor young widders whose hu?bans was in Caliiorny: to all of whioh question the Prints perlitely replide, girin me to onderstan that the Emperor was behavin well. " I ax these questions, my royal duke and moat noble bigness and imperials, beoaws I m anxieas to know how he stands as a man. I know he's smart. He ia eunoin, he is longheded, he is deep?he is grate. But onless he U good he'll some down with a orash one of these days, and the Bonyparts will be Baatid up agin. Bet >er life." 4Air you a preacher, air?" he inquire, ilitely atrkaaticul. ** No. sir Bat I bleeve in morality. I likewiae bleeve in Meetin House*. Show me a place where there isn't any Meetin Heuses and where preacher* ia never seen, and I'll show you a place where old bats air stuffed into broken winders, where the children air dirty and ragged, where gates bar no hinges, where the wimin air slipshod, and where maps of the 'devil's wild land' air painted upon men's shirt-bosums with tobaceo jooce. That's what I'll show you. Let us consider what the preachers do for us before we abooae em." He sed he didn't mean to aboose the olergy. Not at all, and he was happy to see that I was interested in the Bon\ part family. " It's a grate family," sed I. " But they % av a a scoopea me ota man id." " How, sir?" 44 Napoleon the grand. The Britishers scooped him at Waterloo lie wanted to do too much, and he did it! They scooped him in at Waterloo, and he subsequently died at St. Heleny! There's where the greatest military man this world ever produced pegged out. It was rather hard to consine suoh a man as him to 8t. Heleny to spend his days in catchin mackril, and walkin op and down the dreary beaoh in ? military cloak, drawn titely round him, ( ee pieter books,) but so it was. < Hed of the Army!* Them was his last werds So he had bin He was grate' Don't 1 wish we had a fair of his old boots to command sum of our rig*des,M This pleased Jerome and he took me warmly by the nand.

He undertook to giv a snake exhibition in his boots, bat it killed him. That was a bad joke for Alic! 44 Since yon air so solicitous about France and th? Emperor, may I ask 70a bow yoar own country is getting along"' sed Jerome, in a pleasant voice. " It's mixed." I sed. "Bat I think we shall oum oat all right. 41 Columbus, when he diskivered this magnificent continent, oould har had ne idee of the grandeur it would one day aseoom," sed tk* Prinli "It eoet Colombo* twenty thousand dollar* to fit oat hi* explorin xpodition," ued I. "If bo had bin a aeofible man he'd hav put the money ia a hoaa railroad or a (as company, and left thia magnificent oontinent to the intelligent savages who when they got hold of a go<>d thing knew eaoff to keep it, and who wouldn't bar acceded nor rebelled, nor knockt Liberty in the bed with a alungshot. Columbus wasn't much of a feller after all. It would har bin money in my poeket if he'd aiaid to home. Chri*. ment wall, but he put hi* foot in it when he aaled for America.' We talked sum more about matters and thinga, and at laat I ris to go. " I will now aay good bye to yon, noble air, and good luik to you. Likewise the same to Ciotildy. Also to the gorgeous paraona whieh oompoee your soot. If the Emperor's boy don't like livin at the Tooleriea, when he git* older, and would like to imbark in the ahow bisniu, let him come with me and I'll maka a man of him.

Than adviain him to hoop away from tha Pater Pank auctions of the ftaat, and the proariatara of ooroer-lota ia tha Weat, I hid him farewell, aad went away.

I was rushin up to shake hands with her when be tarned on her heel, and toasin her head in a contemptuous manner, walked awaj from me very rapid. " Hallo, Sal," I hollerd, "oan't you measure me a quart of tbam beat melasses? I may want a codfish, also ! I guess this reminded her of the little red store, and "the days of her happy childhood." But I fell in with a nice little gal after that, who waa much sweeter than Sally'a father's melaaaes, and I axed her if we shouldn't glide in the massy dance. She sed we should, and we glode. I intended to make this letter very seris, but a few goaks may hare accidently crept in. Never mind Besides, I think it improves a komiok paper to publish a goak once in a while.

The men of the rbannel battery were ord?red to leave their guns and protect themselves a* well as possible, the conncll of the commanding officers having decided that It waa to be an action of endurance un 11 our reinforcements came up After a few nhots had been fired, and It was ascertained that we could not reach them, our guns ceased Are, and onlv answered the Ore of the enemy occasionally, to show we had not surrendered. The shower of *hell In half an hour became literally tremendous, as we bad falling into and Immediately around tbe work not less, on an average, than ten each minute, and, tbe sea being smooth, tbe firing was remarkably accurate One officer counted 28 shells as felling so as to damage us in one minute, and several others counted 20 In a minute. At a quarter to 11 o'clock a council of officers was bela, and It was determined to surrender. A white flag was raised, and tuc unu^ ccoscu ai 11 O'CIOCI.

At the time the council determined to surrender, two of our guns were dismounted, four men were reported killed, and between '25 and30 badly wounded. One shell had fallen Into a room adjoining the magazine, and the magsxlne was reported on Are It is useless to at'empt a further description. The men generally behaved well. Nearly every commissioned officer, from the Commodore down, was more or less wounded, and SO or 60 of tbe tioa-commlssloned officers and men, who would not report to the surgeon. From the report of Commodore Barrou we take the following: I was requested by Colonel Martin and Major Andrews, commanding the post, to assume command of tbe Fort, to which I assented, Colonel Bradford volunteering to assist me In the duties of defence, in assuming this grave responsibility I was not unaware that we could be shelled out of the fort; but expecting tbe arrival from Newbern of a regiment of North Carolina volunteers ai or dcjoic niiaaikdi. (me neet naving put to sea, and appearance* Indicating bad weather.) we designed an a^mlt on Fort Clark, three quarter* of a mile distant from Fort Hatteras, which bad been taken possession of by a party landed J from the shipping; but, unfortunately, the regiment did not arrive until the following day, after the bombardment bad commenced, and when the time came that I deemed evacuation or surrender > unavoidable, the means of escape were not at my command Oa the next day at 7 40, a m , the fleet, consisting of the Minnesota, Wabash, 8usquebmna, Cumberland, Pawnee, and Harriet Lane, (other steamers being In company,) took < their position and opened Are In addition to the I batteries of the ships the enemv had, during the ( night, erected a battery of rifled guns near Fort Clark, which also opened upon as During the first hour the shells of the ships fell short, we onlv fl'insr occasional! v. tn whether onr shot would reach th?m. and wishing ! to reserve our very limited supply of ammunition ' till the vessels might find it necessary to come i nearer In, but they, aftor some practice, got the exact range of their 9, 10, and 11-inch guns, and did not find it necessary to alter their positions, while not a shot frun our battery reached tb*m, with the greatest elevation we could get Thla state of things, sheila bursting in and over the fort every few Seconds, having continued for about three hour*, the men were directed to take shelter under the parapet and tmveraea, and I called a council of offlcera, at which it was unanimously agreed that holding out longer could only rrault la a greater loss of life, without the ability to damage our adveraaMea, and, jnat at thla time, the magazine being reported on tire, a abell having fallen through the ventilator of the "bomb proof' Into the room adjoining the principal magazine, ' I ordered a white flag to be ahown, when the firing ceaaed and the surrender waa made upon > the conditions of the accompanying "articles of capitulation " The peraoonel of thla command are now "pria oners ot war" on board thla ship (the Minnesota), where everything la done to make them u comfortable aa possible under the circumstances Flag I Officer Stringbam, Captain Van Brunt, and Commander Caae extending to u? cbaracterlatlc conrteav and kindness We aro to be landed at Fort Hamilton, New York harbor. COLON XL MARTIN'S RKPOXT.

The lmpreaalon generally prevails that the fort can accommodate a targe number of prlaonera?one thouaand even baa been considered by some a low estimate. This la not a fact, however. The fort will contain a large number of men, but not that proportion of prlaonera The former can be accommodated In their regular auartera, while the latter must be aerured In auch a manner as to render eecape impossible.
