Then the Battery saluted him with a single gun at parting fort Moultrie followed up the compliment with another and acknowledging each civility with a dip of her Flag the blockade runner thus greeted steamed on for Charleston. Fort Sumter was now passed pitted and seamed and blackened from the shelling it Lead gone through. Then came fort Johnson on another Sandy Promontory to the left then lying Well off the land just at that Point where the Ashley and Cooper Rivers meet and mingle Shute a Folly Island with Castle Pinckney a huge round fort like a Gigantic Martello Tower showing a bold front toward the sea then on a Sandy Delta Between the Mouths of the two Rivers sparkling Many coloured May steeped presenting a stately show of wharves and quays White domes Green Trees and Public and private buildings of every description Charleston. News of her arrival having in the meanwhile been telegraphed from Morris Island the Stormy petrel As she steamed in was met by an excited Huzzah no welcoming multitude which greeted the blockade runner Al enthusiastically As if she were fresh from the scene of some great naval Victory. On they came running along the quays As the boat Drew on and gathering about the Landing place As soon As she was made fast alongside soldiers townspeople women children and niggers waving Caps and handkerchiefs clanking spurs and sabers shouting laughing elbowing surging to and fro and wild with that sort of excitement which in revolutionary times pervades the air like an inflammable Gas and is ready to flame out upon the smallest provocation. The Gangway once adjusted it became no easy matter to keep the crowd at arms length. Having issued orders however that no one should be allowed to come on Board except the municipal authorities or persons having business with the super cargo the Captain stationed two men at the top of the Gangway and one at the foot and so kept off All intruders. Or. Heneage or As he should More properly be called senator Shirley had in the meanwhile seized the first Opportunity of Landing and being instantly recognized was seen by those on Board struggling to shake a Hundred hands at once now carried this Way now that and finally swept away Joy a compact body of fellow townsmen All boisterously cheering. And now Captain and Pilot mates engineers and half the Crew having done so much of their work were free to go ashore and make merry Blit the super cargo a work was Only just beginning. An anxious Day was it for Temple de Benham. % in none of those business transactions upon which he had been employed by my. Hardwicke had he As yet been called upon either to buy or sell and now. For the first time in his life he found himself responsible for the Sale of property to the value of Many thousands. He fully appreciated the weight of this responsibility. Fee knew that for the due fulfilment of his task he should need All his coolness of head and All the pres after that his chances of sleep went suddenly Down to Sero and he never closed his Eye again till it was Broad Daylight chapter Xxxvii. Mot a bad bargain. The next Day or two in Charleston was Given up to unloading the Stormy petrel delivering the goods to their several purchasers mad receiving payment for the Bame. De Benham was careful a by the Way to stipulate for the latter in the shape of Bills upon English h he would not bring himself somehow 1 much Frith in bran new Confederate Bank which like the fairy Gold in the Irish la might to thought in a single right turn Denly to a Mere Heap of withered leaves came the main business of ally the buy the Cotton. The Supply then actually in the Tew a we no they told him scanty for in con Seq no nce of the stagnation of the Trade it was yet lying at the plantations up the country. But there wan a Denty of it for de Benhams purpose in the Ong Low lines of open Sheds along the quays a plenty and to spare for the freight age of a whole Fleet of Stormy petrels. Some of these Sheds were still stacked with Cotton Bales each Bale in its a a bagging of Indian Canvas. ,0 the wharves were piles of Cotton Bales ready for removal. But the removals wore now few and far Between and the Trade was already at a dead lock for want of buyers and a Market. There was something singularly melancholy in the sight of All this precious produce upon which so much human labor had already been expended and for want of which so Many millions of workers must be thrown out of employment de Benham could not help saying so once or twice but those to whom he spoke a hot blooded Charleston merchants turned soldiers with jingling brass spurs and clanking sabers Ana the Palmetto tree embroidered on their Caps Only smiled boasting of How soon they meant to a a whip the Yankees drive off the blockades.

Sufi Var a Island a Long Tongue of Lana running out some Way lower Down on the opposite Shore partook apparently of the same Low Sandy marshy characteristics relieved however by the Noble water front of fort Moultrie while Midway Between both shores the stars and bars flaunting gaily overhead Rose As it seemed sheer out of the Broad Waters of the Estuary he battered eyeless Walls of fort Sumter. Yellow and turbid As the tiber at the foot of St. Angelo flowed River and tide now fast ebbing out to sea. White and dazzling stretched the Sandy shores on either Side. A hot wind blew oppressive As the italian scirocco and thick with Sand As the winds of the egyptian desert. Half choked half blinded with smarting eyes parched lips and burning throats the Crew of the Stormy petrel agreed together that the bold defenders of these Harbor forts must have a disagreeable time of it. No sooner was the Camp awake and stirring on Morris Island than the Beach was crowded with Confederate officers and soldiers All dressed pretty much alike in coarse Grey cloth with worsted braid and Yello of facings Ana Palmetto tree buttons. Their eagerness their enthusiasm their excitement knew no Bounds. About a dozen officers put off in a boat and came on Board at once shaking hands with every one pressing them to land and breakfast. And make the tour of the batteries asking a thousand questions and volunteering All Hind of Hospital ties.
