The reported arrival of Porter's mortar flotilla as the advance of Farragui's expedition off Fort Morgan and tha vicinity of Hon 1*1 and at laat brings this im portant part of the Unitod States more prominently before our notice. The news has been received from rebel sources, but latterly such news has generally been found correct when our mails arrive, at least as far as regards our attacks, although we generally find their statements of our troops being repulsed eomewbal exaggerated. We present our readers to-day with ? full hkeicb of the fortifications, water and railroad approach*!*, Ac., of tho oity of Mobile, and It will, doubt, less, be found Interesting. Mobile and Its Fortification** Daring the year 1700, a roving Frenchman nuM Bianviilo, attracted by the magnificent proportions of what is now known as Mobile, landed wltn a few follow ers, made a settlement and built a fort, probably upoa tho pre- ont Rite or Fort Mo: gsu. The exceeding salubrity of the climate, together with a perios of fortunate circumstances, prvspered the littlO settlement, the rapid growth of which, when ceded to En^'and in 1143, made it a place of some importance even at that oarly period. In 1780 it w?s again ceded, thin timo by England to Spain, and in 1817 tho city of Mobilg was ii)c ri?oraied. The city is b ill upon a plateau elevated some fifteen feet abovo high water mark, thirty miles from the mouth of Mobiie Bay, the entraace to this bay being protected by Forts Morgan and Gaines. Fort Morgan was known as Fort Boyer during tbs war or 1812, when tho gallant Major Lawrence defended It successfully against repealed attacks both by land and sen. Tho Tort since then bus been rebuilt and strength oned, ami was but a short time since one of tbe most picturesque and interostiug of our seacoast defences, tt shape it is a pentagon tracn, built njion regular anglso, protected on the sea front by a strong water battery sfl masonry and turf. Tbe greater number of the guns of the fort are Columbians or heavy calibre, trith an occa sional ritlo upon a salient. A bomb-proof citadel In tha centre of tho fort, pierced for musketry, affords a boosts retreat during a bombardment, as well as a dernier resort from a successful storming party. Hie fort and watot battery, with their full ornament, mount forty-five guns^ many or which are protected by tho mantelet that waa so much used during the Crimean wsr, and were brought from that place by Colonel Hardee, which peroonago has made excellent use of the advantage.-; of his visit tn tho rodtting and strengthening of Fort Morgan, where ho wa.. in c m maud directly after the exodus of Alabama fii.m tuo Union. These mar.teleto arS made of ropej fi\ m an inch and a hair to two iuches In thickness, laid one upon tho other and bound tightly together, no that they form an arc two-thirds of a circle in extent, and re sembling somewhat a mat of very thick rope, which hi I'lae. d directly across the breccli or tbe gun, a few inches b:it ic of th" trillions,a small aperture being left through which the gunner takes his range. While so occupied tho mantulet conceals and protects those portions of his per* son that would, were it not for the mantelet, bo exposed to the deadly bullet of a straight shooting party of skir mishers. A mantelet firmly made is a protection, as well from grape and canistcr as frum the rifle ball. The ditch or Fort Morgan is protected by a low sad clfe>? grove of tbe bayonet palm, wh< so thick and stunt ed limbs, with their sharp branches and svord shaped loaves, form an almost impregnable abattio, naturs having done tor Fort Morgan day by day what our army at Washington, with its th> usando of hardy foresters, finds an easy matter to accomplish in a few hoars. Among the otllc rs now in garrison at this fort org several unfinished specimens of tho West Point cadets wh ) left the military academy almost immediately after (he news of tho first outbresk of our present troubles reached them. The hoepltal, officers' quarters and other barrack buildings are situated a few hundred yards from tho fort, in a southeasterly di rection, tut building* being largo, well built and oem* fortable. The garrison of tha fort bos been constantly drilled in working their heavy guns, which they certain* ly manoeuvre and dexterously use with astonishing rfe pldity, some of tbe guns buret Ing thflr ohsllo high in tho air, far out in the direction of the fine lighthouse spot Sund Island. As the site of Fort Morgan Is historic, ws subjoin the following brief skotch of its importance in the war of 1813 Si gn September 14,1814. a British fleet of fovr carrying ninety-two guns, attacked Fort Boyer,si redoubt. This redoubt was garrisoned by only one hum. dred and twenty Americano?officers included?under the command of Major Lawrence, and its armament was but twenty small pieces of cannon, some of which wer# almost entirely useless, end moot of them poorly mounted, in batteries bartlly thrown np, and leaving the gum on, crvered from the knee upward, while tho enemy's land force, acting in concert with the ehlpe, consisted of 'wonty artillerists, with a battery of two guns, sad seven hundred and thirty marines, tadii&s and negreoo. Ills shirs carried Are hundred end ninety men In alL This immense disparity of numbers and strength did not allow to the British military and naval oomnanders tha slightest apprehension that four British ships, earrylng ninety two guns and a land force *omewhat exceeding ?even hundred combatants, could rail In reducing *, small work mounting only twenty short oarronados sad defended by s little more than one hundred men, unpror vided alike with furnaces for heating shot, or "T-mslW to oover themselves from rcckets and shslls. Novel theless the enemy was completely repulsed; tbs Brtttt/ Commodore's ship wss entirely destroyed. Tho enemy t lose In killed and wounded was two hundred aad thirty.' two men, while the American i or waa only eight or nine* The present fortification is built of Northern grantts, and Is, we believe, embrasured for one tier of guns, Hi case mated bombproof roors, and another tier of guns open air or en barMti On tbe exterior of the (tort Is a ditch and glacis extending entirely around It.
