I!v tlio Overland mail wo have details of
the late eiurat'eiueiit between the rebel non
descript Atlanta nud the monitor Weohuwk
en, in Warsaw Sound, in which the former,
alter live shots, hauled down the rebel bunt
ing and surrendered. The Atlanta, former
ly called tin Flugal. wih a very foimtdablo
craft more, formidable! than the Morriinar.
after which she was modelled. The rebels
have been laboring to perfect her for the
Inst two years, and in doing so, it is esti
muled, expended over a million of dollars.
Tin hull and machinery were FngdMi, of
the staunch maku '"or which that people are
remarkable. She was roofed in like the
Merriniac. and covered with -1.1-lneh iron
platen. She carried, we also learn from the
descriptions that have recently been pub
lish al. four Rrook guns, two six-inch and
Iwo seven-inch, and a how gun weighing
over Ifl thousand pound. Shu has a cut
water In the shape or an imnieno slcelsaw,
with monster teeth; outside of that an iron
frame willi a lnrpdo attached, for damag
ing vessels; and above an bon booui-liku
piece, for peiietintiug anything on which
she might vim.
She was in all respects a much move for
midabli! vesM'l than thu Merriniac ever wa.
The rebels expected the most cxtr.iordlury
achievements IVoiu her. It Is staled that
when she sailed down the Savannah river
for Hie purpose of engaging nnd capturing
the Wechawken. she was followed by two
wooden gunboats lilted with ladies and
other excur.-ionists, who were to witness the
light, it having been arranged that one of
the gunboats should tow the Wechawken
up to Savannah; then the Atlanta was to
go to Oxsnbaw, capture a gunboat, lake
some batteries, entrap tlio Forly-seveulli
Js'ow York, and leave a force there to hold
Hie batteries. Next she was going to
Charleston, and co-operating by signal with
somu rebel boats, annihilate the blockade,
after which she wns to pay her rct-peels to
the Port Royal squadron.
Now, afler ail this preparation, mark llio
result? We give it in the terse languimo
or Admiral Dupont, In his report to the
Secretary of llie Navy :
'The Weoliawk'.'ti. Capt. Jolin Rogers, at
oncu engaged her. tiring in all live shot',
three A subsequent examination establish
ed that llio Almoin had been si ruck four
times. -Kiia Ai.ta.J of wliloli took effect,
penetrating her armor, nud killing or
wounding llie crews of Iwo guns. Two or
three of tho pilots were iiIk badly wounded,
ami (lie pilot house broken up, whereupon
the vessel grounded, nud Immediately sur
rendered." The engagement lasted precisely llRccn
minute. Two of the balls fired by the
Weeiiawken were tOU-pnuiidcr. Thu re
s'.ills are slated as follows :
On examination it was found the enemy
had been struck four times; first, on the in
clined side by a lo-luch cone shot, which,
although llrei'l at an angle of .10 degrees with
her keel, broke In the armor and wood back
ing, strewing the deck witli splinters, pros
trating about forty men by the concussion,
ami wounding several by broken pieces of
armor and splinters. One man has since
died. The second shot (1 1-inch solid)
struck the edge of llie ovei hanging knuckle,
doing no damage except bteaking a platu
or two. The third shot (J.Viuch coned)
struck the ton of the pilot house knocking
it oil', wounding Iwo pilot and stunning
thu men at the wheel. The fourth shut
(supposed to be nn 1 1-Inch) t-truulc a port
stopper in the center, breaking it in two,
ami shattering it very much, driving, many
fragments in through tho port."
In a scientific point of view, thts engage
ment is of tho highest importance, Ju llio
light between tho original Monitor nud .Mer
riiunc. tho former was not furnished with
guns of the calibre which Mr. Kricssou had
demanded. The conscqiiciicu wns the Mer
rimiiu was not very seriously injured, and
returned to her berth at Portsmouth. Thu
monitors are now well supplied witli the
iiiiiiH'ti"o guns 100-poitnders for which
they wero designed, and tho result in the
engugcinen; above referred to, was the cap.
turo of a craft more formidable than the
Merriniac, in thu short spaeo of n quarter
of an hour. Captain Hrictson has abandon
ed the old principle of a largo number of
small gnus nud broadsides, flu built the
monitors to carry two, four uud six guns
only, nueordiug to thu number of the tur
rets. Of the wisdom of this arrangement,
we htvvo the most convincing proofs in the
cno of the light with thu Atlanta. In calm
wnleis it is possible that the great iron
steam-hip of llie KnglUh thu gigantic
Warrior would inn bo able to hold out
against tho '100-pounders of thu Wechawk

At the battle of Stone River, while tho

through the cedur thickets, flocks of litlM
