A few mllss was an earthwork called Fort which was garrisoned by forty* men of a company of Cook's Artillery commanded liy two ndtcera, tba consisting of six old-fashioned mostly howitzers. At tha time the appeared not a cartridge wss in tha the powder with which to make t'uem la tha town of Stbine, about two above, in fnll view of the fort and Captain Odium,thtu in command ot tha" forces in tha vicinity of Sablna with baadaaartsrs at tba town of Immadiataly pat all hand* at work cartridges.
