The Gun Boata-How They are Built.
From tho SI. Louis Kvcnlng News.
At ita lata extra session Congress author
ized the constuctlon or seven guu bouts Tor
service in the West, nnd made nn appropria
tion for tho purpose. Proposals fur construct
ing them having been Invited, tho contract
for building them was nwrdcd to our fellow
citizen ('apt. James II. Kads, as the lowest
responsible bidder. Tho contract was made
on the ftli of August, for seven bonis, to bo
constructed according to specified plans, at a
cost orelghty-nlnc thousand dollars each, the
rtonts to be finished in sixty day, tho con
tractor to forfeit two hundred dollar per day
for every day they rcmalucd unfinished after
the Mb of October.
The time was briel for the accomplishment
of to prodigious an undertaking but tho con
tractor immediately set to work with great
energy and industry, mid lias now, less than
thirty days after the commencement, got the
work In a position that warrants Iho belief
that nil seven boats will be siflo.it and ready
for service nt tho appointed day. Tour of
them nrc being built at Carondclct, and the
other three nt Mound City, III,, nenr Cairo.
A largo portion of the heavy work on those
at Uitronutiet lias been done. Tho irames arc
nearly completed, arid in a day or two the
planking will be commenced.
Tne boats are lo b 175 fcol In lenntli. nnd
51 feet C Inches beam, each drawing, with it
armament, 6 feet, each having two engines
and live boiler, with five Hue each. The cyl
inder of the engines arc to be 122 loch, with G
feet stroke. Tho water wheel It to be of
wrought Iron, and placed In a recess near the
item, like that of a ferry, boat, to a to be
at little exposed to the suots of an enemy ns
llethle Ihc two main engines, there is to be
in encu boat a small ntixuiary engine, lor
pumping water in tho boilers. The entire
machinery Is lo bo placed In Iho lio'd. and
will therefore, be beneath tho water. Above
it will be Iho main deck of uction, support
ing the armament. The boat will have an
average of nhout C.'iO ton each.
Of course the boats nro built with a view to
secure Ihc Kreatc'tslrenglh, with Ihu lightest
draught. They nre therefore II it bottomed, and
constructed of the most involve oak tlinlx'rs.
Tho bottoms nnd sides nro to bo completely
Iron-clad, covered with Iron plates 21 Inches
thick, m.Mo or tho best charcoal Iron, nnd bolted
nnd rablieteil In the most secure manner. The
sides nre Inclined Inwardly, con-Ming nr n
frame or heavy timbers, covered with Ave Inch
oak plank, and that covered In Its (urn with 2)
Iron plates. The Inclination or the sides Is
mado so as to present nn Inclined surface lo the

The Naval Engagement at Hickman.
Cairo, Sept. 6. 1861. Wo have had qulle
an exciting time hero yesterday. Lnto iu the

bringing important Lews from Hickman Ky.,
ami ouier points.
Yesterday morning the Tyler and Lexing

On approaching within n short distance of
tho town, before turning the bend which brings
it Into full view, they discovered a smtll ttcrn
wheel steamer, painted black, cvHjVnlly a gun
boat, which took to her heel. On turning
the bend they discovered, by aid of glasses, a
huge side wheel gun boat the Yankee ol
immense power, formerly used as a tugboat In
New Orleans in towing up shins from the

road Iron of tho T pattern.
Our gun boats opened fire on her at a dis
tance or nbout three miles, and the balls nnd

shell from the Tyler struck her whcclhouc
und burst, but tho railroad (ton threw It off
without any effect. Tho Yankee replied, but
her shut fell far short, On colng eloscr to

Inianiry was teen vy our boats near tho center

The Tyler pitched a couple of shells Into

smoke was seen to arise, which convinced our

(hat Gen. Fremont wus so oeeupleel In defend

Judgment should have dictated. Wc.nf course,
nave no right to lorm n harsh Judgment or Uen.
Fremont on tho meegre intelligence now In

seems In reflect c.niurc upon hlm.

Ihu atinlliintt, according to tho lowest ac
counts (and that on rebel authority.) num
bered 17,000. Tlic rebel would seem to
have surrounded the town on every side, and
obtained command of the river otherwise the
Government tooopt could not have been forced
to turrender for want of water. The Seces
ilonistt persistently follow their origual game
of precipitating a superior forco upon the
Union troopt in somo out or tho way place,
lo achieve a, victory solely with n view to its
effects in keeping up Iho courage of tho ills
loyal States, and not with any direct refcrenco
to its bearing on their opponents In Ihc tlrife.
Of what earthly value, for Instance, I Lex
ington to tho rebels, that they should employ
un uriny of 17,000 men lo capture it and Its
few hundred gallant defenders? It docs not
command the rond lo St. Louts, and contrib
ute nothing (compared with its cost) towardt
"driving invaders" from tho soil of Missouri.

would employ in Missouri aud keep out of
Virginia 17,000 men, at a cost of a regiment
Kuch tueresslvo development of rebel tactics
