THE EVENING STAR MOB ILK. The Ctplire ?! the The detailed account* given of tne capture of the rebel ram Tennessee correct eeverai pre yioas errors. It appears that Her captnre was mainly due to the Monitors, which nere tofore been represented am taking little share in the fight. TUB blAPtRATI FIOST WITH TH1 RIBIl FLBBT -admibal tahraovt fights blaq gUIP FOB riABSHIP. The light with the reoei rieet wis more des perate and resulted in the greatest losses. Far ragut designed the Monitors to tight the reb?l ironclads; but they maneuvered too rapidly and moved too quickly for at. Farragut had anchored, when the Tennessee, having shaken off the Monitors, was seen coming after him. He immediately called to quarters, with there mark, "If it must be flagship for flagship, ad miral for admiral, 1 am willing." ? The lebel ram came on with great speed, aiming to run the Hartford down. T&e latter was handled with wonderful skill. As he saw hie adversary comic*. Farragut waited the op portune moment, and, then, turning his stnp slightly, gave her headway, and, instead of being struck himself, dealt the ram a fearful blow, which must have shook her terribly. The two boa's then slided alongside against each other, side to side, both discharging their broadsides. Those of the Tennessee passed directly through the Hartford. The Hart ford's solid nine-inch shot glanced upward from the heavy casemates of the Tennessee and flew away into the air. The encounters were frequent during the ac tion, not only between the ram and the Hart ford, but also with the Lackawanna, Monon gahela and Brooklyn, which with the Moni tors, came to the aid of the heroic old flagship. Time fails me at this opportunity to write the detailed account of this remarkable flght, which deserves volumes lor its record of hero ism. courage and determination displayed on both sides. I shall ask space for the fuller ac count in a few daye. THE Kin AL SHOT A T THB TimnttBH The final shot that terminated the career of the Rebel vessel was fired by the Monitor Chickasaw, which passed close nnder the ?tern, giving her the full welghtof two 11 Inch solid shots from her bow turret, which dam aged the cover ef the ram's stern post. Buch anan went ait with his engineer to readjust the port cover. While engaged in this opera tion the Chickasaw brought her after turret to bear, one shot from which carried away the tiller chains of the Tennessee, rendering her unmanageable, while the other, entering the damaged port, killed one man and fractured Buchanan'a leg with splinters. THB TEMNK8f?BK RURRBNDBRB. Having already lost her smoke stack, the Rebel ship was now utterly helpless. She was therefore surrendered at once, haul ing down her colors to the Chickasaw, Lieu tenant Commander Ferkina commanding. BABRAGCT REGARDS BfCHANAH AS HIS BN BHT, AHD DBCLWB8 TO SBB HIM. When Farragut was notified ot the surren der he sent an officer off to receive Buchanan's Eword. On learning of Buchanan's wound, an officer acked Farragut if he wonld go off and see him. Farragut looked along his decks, strewn with dead and dying mangled com rades, and red with the blood of others who bad fallen and been removed, and then re plied, ?* "With these brave men before me killed and mangled by him, 1 consider him but my enemy. 1 want nothing to do with him." ATTEMPTED BSC'AI'K AND CAPTCRB OK THE SILMA. While the fight with the Tennessee was going on the rebel gunboat Selma attempted to escape up the bay. Several gunboats started in pursuit. The Metacomet being the faster, overhauled her, after a chase of a few miles, and with a single shell from her 10O-pounder Farrott, which explodeu fairly on the deck of the rebel vessel, killed or wounded'every man on board. Her colors were at once struck, and she was brought back to the fleet a prize to the Metacomet, Lieut. Com'r Jewett. She is a flne vessel, of light dranght, and carrying an ar mament of four heavy guns, including a Im pounder Brooks rifle. DBSCBirTIOn OB THE BAM TETfHBSSBE. The Tennessee is the most complete and for midable iron-clad monster afloat. She was considered periectly in vulnerable. Her model and construction are similar to those of the Merrimac, of Hampton Roads fame, though she is a staoncher and more formidable ship. Her length is two hundred feet; breadth, forty eight. Her casemates have a backing of three inenes of oak, covered with sixteen inches of yellow pine, crossed. On this there is a per pendicular layer of iron plates, three inches in thickness, covered transversely by a second layer ot two-inch iron, topped by a third layer perpendicular, one inch thick, making nine teen inches of wood and six of iron. These casemates hang over her hull, protecting it completely. Her decks are covered with double plates of two-inch iron crossed, laid on heavy timber. Her armament consisted of six rifled guns?two of seven-inch calibre and four ot six and three-quarters?all of the Brooks pat tern. She draws fourteen feet eight inches of water. She is worked by two splendid high Sressure engines, driving a geared propeller, [er port covers are of flve-ineh iron, worked by cogs from within. Her complement was o?? hundred and eighty s?ven men, officers aiid all. Two-were killed aboard of her, and three cr four wounded. The vessel will be repaired at a trifling cost. One fifteen-inch shot penetrated her casemates amidship. This was the only effective shot in her armor. She was struck beyond count, showing a battering on all sides enough to demolisb any craft. i.C. HOWARD'S I LIVERY, HIKING, HACK.
