Since the successful passage of the Pen.iacola the rebel batteries at Ship 1'olnt, the enemy at th.i Point has exhibited a very suriy and bcl Igercnt position, having given their powerful war-dogs un trammeled license. They hav c attacked, with a mos zealous and destructive vigor, every species of craf which his presented Itself within their range but I really seems as if the destructive missiles were directed In their screeching courses jy a powei against which human skill Is impotent and use The blockade of the Potomac, which has beer Instituted with tlie greatest cure, and upt n which the enemv have built high es of has proves a miserable and total failure. Alread) upward o worth of ammunition alone cnexpendct upon vessels passing the batteries at Coc tpit and Ship Points. This large outlay could not hu 'e been more lost to them had K been bi rlrd deep in the ocean, for they have not been indemnified by a dollai's injury to any loyal" propert', nor has It been of the slightest apparent benefit tn themselves in artillery practice. Not the mlnuteft visible Im- provement has been observed In their firing from the moment they first lighted the torchon th Potomac to the present time, and we'are beginning to think that every object against which the rebels conspire i endowed with a miraculous and charmed existence. The Pensacola, although compelled, from the nature and depth of the river's channel, to run within short musket range of the rebel works, actually experienced less dancer from their shots than did our pickets, a mile and a half dUtant on the Maryland shore, and many of their guns were elevated at such an angle 'with the to throw their elicUs sixty or seven- ty feet above her, and a full mile back into the oppo- site bhore. After the-firing ceased en that occasion, much vi- tuperative language was indulged In iiy the i rebels against one another for their Inefficiency. Crlmina- tloni recrimination and tcctisattons of treachery weic freelv circulated nmont the du.ippolntqd enemy, and which, if c.irrlet into execution, have bi en very destructive U each'other, were dlttinctly coming to our ci ra from across the river as they out their icavy guns, nnd sullenly tlifd from their Ignoble early tnorning work.
