[From a Lady Correspondent of the Mobile Advertiser ard Register, "f March go.] Nostril k, March 11, 1862. 1 cannot forbear the Advertiser and Itegister upon the rooeet glorious tiolory achieved within eight of this our' ancieut borough." Truly, "we have met the enemy and they aro ours." l'|?>n toe very element wherein alone wo have ever found our foes tco strong for us?that element from which, through the ne famous policy adopted by the old Lotted States government towards us, wo of the Southern States had bi on rendered entirely nun est?wo have gained a triurn h which shall inaugurate a n.?w and glow lug c hapter in the history of maritime warfare. You*have seen, by telegrams and otherwise, how, by the nooutide sun of tho last Saturday, our Virginia, the quondam Merrimac, cast loose from her moorings at the Norfolk N'avy Yard, and went, attended by tlireo gunboats , gliding quietly through our waters down to Hampton Roads. As si." passed i>ur city wbarv s, throngs of animated, and enthusiastic rit./ens gai hered there to witness her debut. There were cheers, loud and long, and waving of hats and handkerchiefs, but no words of response from the gallant Commander Buchanan and his devoted crew. Quiet marked the progrevaof all connected with that enterprise eiecied to to h gh a destiny, and on hey went to the great work before th m. The frigate Cumberland, with the hea\ lest armament in the fede a navy was run into and sunk in twenty minutes, notwithstanding she bravely struggled against her fate oven ttnto her going down with the live humtred and fifty souls winch she had on board. Next came the Congress, and then the Minnesota, which were like* i~e desi?ich?d in their turn?the dual rema ns of the latter ha\ irg been taken into Old l*olnt by assistance of two cr three Yank -, vessels. Of the Congress' crew some few escn; od?(he rest were made iirmonapt utriil th* v#huu?l iK^l! ^ nn/htfaJl fir A<1 bv our forc?f<. and tun glowing sky mi i .uminoua water prs sentrd a grand and Imposing spectacle. The Virginia snd her attendant licet were Joined in the Roads by the war steamers J.imist wu and Patrick Henry, ad of w hich, after finishing <>rr on tho Minneso.a skeleton,returned to N-rfolk on Sunday morning. It la thought by bc me that some ladles, friends of the Cornbeiland ofllcers, were sending the day on hoard abip. Thi->, T suppose, arose from a faucy that when the frigate went down female shrieks were heard from the wreck. Devout, fervent thanksgivings were heard in our churches on rial bath morning. Men greeted each other earnestly on the thoroughfares, aud w arm and young children look id jubiiant and grateful. Tue?c ur* some of the indications of the general Joy, but there is an under current of patriotic rejoicing, high and holy, to which no words attempt utterance?no detnouatraiione to blazon forth?and of >hia we will not essay to write. The gallant Buchanan returned to us si ghtiy wounded, but is doing well, and say* he "will he with thorn in a ibwr days." The Alabama Third regiment are si 111 encamped at their quartan near Port amonih, where they have been a tabooed ever since the counter march from Budolk. From a newspaper account we extract the following ? The sinking of the Cumberland m said to have been the moet terrific incident of the fight. We learn positively, from acoounts which have reached the Navy Department, that the whole of hor < rew, about throe hundred and fifty smile, wire buried beneath the water. The Yankees behaved with desperate courage, before tho frigate had entirely sunk they continued to work every gun above the water line. One of her after guns was prow foremost. She suck In about a hundred fart of water, There is scarcely an instance iu the war of mere de ;write and devoted spirit than that shown )>y t! a craw of the Cumberland. She sunk very slowly. Tliero was no effort to escape, no rush to the boats, not a s: go of surrender, and, aa she settled, hur guns were a lUeniy fo i|ht to the last moment, and every living soul on board was buried beneath the waters. A letter in the Kichmond Ditjulck from Norfolk says1 regret to state thai the Yankees succeeded m' getting off the Minnesota and towing her around to Xorr tress Monroe. Shi is In a specially bad condition?be nia.ta shivered, her boll riddled, and large timbers hart mg baen knocked frem h<r upper and lower works. I, she should be carried North for repairs the work o m onth, wilt t>e rcsqntrod to put bur in a seaworthy con ditiOii. It is roper.od that, in additioo to the consiorua tion and terror on board the Congress, the e was mutiny among the crew, and that the scene of violence, a auglrter, h'ood and death a-e unparalleled iu the lusto y >f naval warfare. Tfcvse on board the Virginia state that when she fired at tko iron battery Kriccson her tower rev??lvwi with great rapid ty, and that when the bail truck tha sound was like the ringing of an immense gong.

Up to this time we had received no reinforcements, General lee. Wallace fading to come to our support until the day waa over, having taken the wrong road from Crump's landing, and being without other tranaporta than those used for Quartermaster'* and Commissary stores, which were too heavily laden to ferry any considerable number of Geno ral Bucll's forces ' across the river, those that were here having been sent to bring up the troo|Mi from Savannah. were, there/ore, contesting against fearful odds, our force not accenting thirty-eight thousand men, while thai of the enemy teas upwards of sixty thousand. Our condition at this moment was extremely critical. I-arg* numbers of men panic el ruck, others worn out by hard Ambling, with the average per cent age of skulkers, had struggled towards the river, and could not be rallied. General Grant and who had been recklessly riding along the line* during the entire day, amid the unceasing dorm of tedlets, grape and shell, note rode from right to left, inciting the men to stand firm until our reinforcements could cross the rioer. Colonel Webster, Chief of Staff, immediately got Into position the hoaviest pieces of artillery, pointing on the enemy'sright, while a large numhor of the battories were planted along the entire line, from the river bank northwest to our extreme rl-ht, some two aud a half miles distant. About an hour before dusk a general oannonading was opened upon the enemy from along our whole line, with a perpetual crack of musketry. Such a roar of artillery was never heard on this continent. For a short time the rebois replied with vigor and eliect, but their return shots grew lass frojuont and destructive, while ours grew more rapid and more terrible. The gunboats Lexington and Tyler, which 1*7 a short distance off, kept raining shell on the rebel hordes. This last effort was too much for the enemy, and ere had set in the firing had naarly ooasol, when, night coming on, all the comba'ants rested frtm their awful work oj blood and carnage. Our men rested on their arms in the position they had at the closo of the night, until the (trees under Major General Lewis Wallace arrived end took |>osi. tiou on the right, and General Bueil's foroea from the opposite side and Savannah now being conveyed to tho battle ground.
