'1'he former (Fort Jackson) Ik casemated; the latter la au'd to be not?are situated twenty-one miles from the bead of the passes, ana titty mllia from the city of New Orleans, on the bend of the river; they are each mounted with 147 Urge 4'2-pounders, besides a variety of smaller guna, 4 000 to 5,COO men are said to be In ttc. e forts. The parade ground. In the center of the forts, has been dug out and filled with water. The guns of the forts commaud the land and sea for three miles. These sea-coast forta are furnished with furnaces for beating redbot shot, a weapon equally destructive with our mortar*. These furnaces can eaaily accommodate from fifty to sixty shots; a twenty-four pounder can be made red hot In twenty-Jive minutes, and a thirty-two and forty-two will require i few minutes longer. These are dangerous missiles. particularly against a shlp-of-war; a red-hot shot retains su the lent beat to set Are to wood after having struck tte water several times. A number or these shot, fired with small charges, so as to enter ha'f way only Into a ship's aides, would be, I may say, almost utter destruction. For landing troops, there Is hardly any suitable plac? around the passes of the Mississippi. For miles extended la a continued swamp, marshy, destitute of trees, excepting coarse reed stems which grow to tbe height of four or five feet.
