THE NAVY-YARD AT NORFOLK, VIRGINIA.

INTERIOR OF FORT SUMTER.

ONE of the officers of Major ANDERSON'S command in FORT SUMTER has kindly placed at our disposal some more sketches of the interior of that work, and we publish the accompanying engravings from them. They explain themselves, and we need say no more than refer to their titles.

THE NORFOLK NAVY-YARD.

THE recent excitement in Virginia on the secession question renders the accompanying picture of the Norfolk Navy-yard appropriate at the present time. Viewed in conjunction with our recent pictures of Fort Monroe, it completes a series of pictures of Norfolk which is valuable and interesting.

THE KEY OF THE FORT MOULTRIE MAGAZINE.-
THE MAJOR'S SOUVENIR.

The Norfolk Navy-yard is one of the best in the United States It is provided with all the usual furniture of a navyyard —ship-houses, storehouses,

founderies, etc., and has, besides, a granite dock which cost a million of dollars. At this navy-yard is anchored, as receiving-ship, the old Pennsylvania,

the largest line-of-battle ship in the world. She is shown in the foreground of our picture.

THE UNITED STATES FRIGATE "SABINE" OFF FORT PICKENS.

WE publish on page 165, from a sketch furnished us by a United States officer serving in Pensacola Harbor, a picture of the United States frigate Sabine, now lying off that harbor. The Sabine is an old vessel, built in the old style, but is still well considered by naval men. She was the flag-ship of the Paraguay expedition, and was at that time illustrated in our columns. She is now lying off Fort Pickens, so as to be ready to give aid to that fort in case it is attacked. Her commander is one of the most gallant officers in the Navy, and has expressed very fierce indignation at the treachery (Next Page)
