Wathinglon,' Fb. 22. Tbe Navy Depart-
me nt hiij received the following
U. S. Flay Ship Malvern, Cape Fear River,
Fob. 19. I have' tbe honor to report the sur
render or evacuation of Fort Anderson. (Jen.
Hcliofield advanced from S.uitliGeld with
8,000 men ou the 1 7 ill. At the same time 1
attacked the works, by placing the mouitor
Monadnock close to the Fort, enfilading with
the Pawtucket, Senator, Armadillo and Pe
quod, the wind not allowing more vessels to
get under fire. Tho Fort auswered briskly,
but quieted down by sunset. On tho 18th, at
.8 o'clock, 1 moved up closer, the Monadnock
leading, lollowed by the Huron, McKenn, Sns-
eacus; Pontuosiie, Mohaiigo, Lenler, Jlnnlla,
Pawtucket, (isceolu, Siiawmut, Tecuuiseh,
Cylypso and Little Ada. These kept up . a
heavy lire through the day till late in the uf
The enemy's batteries wcro Bilenced by
three- o'clock, though we kept up a fire till
dark. We also fired through the night. In
the meantime Scholield was working around
to the rear of the rebels to cut tlieui off, The
latter did not wait to be surrounded, but. left
in tho night, taking live or six pieces-of light
artillery with lliem, und everything else qt
value. This morning some of our troops who
were near bv, went in and hoisted a ting on
the rutnpartrf, when the firing censed from the
mortars. There were ten heavy guns iu Fort
Anderson, and a quantity of ammunition.
Wo lost but three killed and fire wounded.
D. 1). PORTEli.
Washington, Feb 22 The Navy Depart
ment has received information that Lieut.
Win. B. Ciisbtng coiia.rucled a mock monitor
so closely resembling those vessels that no
difference, could be detected at the distance
- of one hundred yards. Ou Saturday night,
Feb. lUtli, at about ten o clock, tbe v
was taken up to within about lour hundred
yards of Fort Anderson and set adrift. . As
there was a strong llooil tide, she moved up
the river and passed the fort as if under slow
steam. At that time the. army had worke
about two-thirds the' distance around and in
the rear ot the fort. The rebels thinking that
their communications were to bo cut off by
land and wnter, eseuped'by tbe only nvenue
open to lliem, leaving their, guns unspiked
and their magnziues uninjured
Wathinyton, Feb. 22 The public and many
private buildings of Washington are illuuii
naied to night. Every main entrance to the
Slate Department has tbe following motto
" Peace aiid good will to all Nations, but no
entangling alliance,-, anu.no foreign inter
Washingon, Feb. 22. Speaking of tho
evacuation of Columbia, a Richmond paper
of tbe 20th says: It i- said that some of our
engraved treasury note paper fell into the
Hands of the Yankees, and also a c'wisidcra.
bio quantity of medical stores. We havo no
particulars of these losses, as the ollicinl dis
patch in regard to the tall of Columbia was
communicated to tho President. Wo doubt
whether it was ever sent to the War Depart'
nient which appears to be in complete igno-
ranco of nil airs in South Carolina, except
from what bits of information have been
posted up on the streets
The same paper savs: Wo understand that
Grant shows no disposition to assume ofi'en
Biro operations, and hits withdrawn from the
forts this side of Hatcher's run. The con
dition of the roads render tho success of any
iniportnqt movement doub'tful. ' Tho ground
is thoroughly thawed and tho roads are al
most impassablo fur cavalry and artillery
and exceedingly difficult for tho movements
ot the iiiuinlry.
San Fruncw, Feb. 24. Tho following dis
patch was received to-day:

SOU I'll AMERICAN AFFAIRS.
We bare been so absorbed in our own po
litical troubles as almost overlook the move
ments in progress on the rest of this contin
ent. The designs of France against Mexico
early attracted our attention, because they
wore' connected with supposed ultimate in
tentions against the integrity of our own
country. - But tho action of Spain in San
Domingo and Pert) has not commanded the
attention it would otherwise have received,
had we been at peace among ourselves. The
Monroe doctrine is a principle which has al
ways started into life on the least sign of
European interference with, the American
republics, but the necessity of conquering
the rebellion has laid that important politi
cal enunciation quietly on tho shelf, but if
we aro .compelled to remain quiet spectators
merely of affairs in South. America, the
Southern republics themselves deem Euro-
ean interference so impertinent and danger
ous, that they are disposed to form a coali
tion tor their own protection against it
Chile, Bolivia, the Argentine Republic,
and Guatemala have agreed to a convention
f plenipotentiaries irom their different
States, to net iu concert with Peru, for the
purpose of common united action against
Spaiti. They feel that their own iudepend-
nce is compromised, or in danger, so long
as ono is liable to European domination; and
it is qmto probnblo that if Spain persists in
pushing her claims to the Peruvian Islands,
she will bo involved in a war with all these
South American powers. Spain is not pre
pared for such a contest.. Her naval power
n the Pacific is much loss than that of Peru,
and a council of war at Callao bad decidod
upon attacking the Spanish .vessels of war
on tho 30th ot November. It attacked,
Spain will undoubtedly fight; but there are
symptoms at homo of nil abandonment of the
nggrcssivo policyv Tho ministry did not
approve of the continued assaults upon San
Domingo, and bad resigned, it so small a
power as San, Domingo can practically assert
its riguts Bgainsb-' the designs ot Spain,
united soutu America need not tear main
ing hers against similar designs affecting
their ludependeuco. i'ha LeUyer.
