with the Co-o; ei at ion of t he gunboats under Co rum an
tler Smith, front thr-ir established batteries on the
Cumberland liver, below the city of Nashville, anil
of the succ.s of Brig. -Gen. C ixton's brigade, in
coveting our right and rear, in the operations of yes-ten!:t3-
and to-day. Although I have no report of the
number of prisoners captured by Johnson's or Cax
ton's commands, I know they have a large nmnlwr.
The prisoners captured yesterday greatly exceed in
number that reported by telegraph last evening
The winds, 6elds and entrenchments are strewn with
the enemy's small arms, abandoned in their tetreat.
Iu conclusion. 1 nm happy to state that all this has
been e.Iected with but a very small loss to us. Our
loss probably docs not exceed S.OOO. very few of
whom are killed. G..o. II. Thomas,
Major General Commanding.
Nashville. Dec. 16. During last night Hood with
drew his riht from the river, and took a position
covering Hillsboro, Granny White's, and the Frank
liu turnpike, which lines had been carefully prepared
for this contingency. He was driven from the first
line easily, but the secun.l was very stubbornly
defended, and at last heavily assaulted three times
before succeeding It was catried, however, and 20
piects of ai titury, 205 men, including Gen. Jackson,
with the remnant of his division, were taken, the
enemy forced back two uii'es. and their rrmy broken
in two parts one part en White's turnpike and the
other on the Fianklin road, with a range of blutls
and hi Is between them. Sredman and wood are
pressing down on them. A. J. Smith, Schofield and
Carey drove the former out ; and Hood cannot make
such another day's Byht while Thomas is iu gool
condition to press him. Everybody both white aud
black acted spendidlf. Stan TON.
Washington, Dec. 16. The following unofficial
despatch has been received from Nashville the ltith,
2 1. M : Hoed has fallen back, apparently doing
his best to get away, while Thomas is pressing him
with treat vigor, frequently capturing guus and men.
Every thing so far is jenVctly successful, anl the
prospect is fair to crush Hood's army. Stanton.
Washington, Dec. 17 Noihicg has been heard
from Thomas to-day. Our official despatches state
that the Provost Marshal at Louisville reports 5.000
prisoners and S'J pieces of artiiiery already secured.
It is ascertained that in the transmitting of Thomas'
leport last night, a te'tgiaphic mistake was made at
Louisville or Nashville, in the estimated number of
our casualties. The despatch written by Thomas
stated his whole loss wmii not exceed 8,001 very
few killed. A despatch from Lexington this evening
M tes that on the ISth inst.. at Kingsp.ort, Tenn ,
Btirbridge had a fiht with Basil Duke's brigade,
formerly John Morgan's, and routed it with a loss to
the enemy of 150 killed, wounded, prisoners and their
tra.es, and Dick Morgon. brother of John, was cap
tured. (Signed) Stanton.
Wahingtcv, Dec. 17- Dispatches have been re
ceived to-day from Gen. Foster, who had a personal
interview, on the morning if Wednesday, the 14th
inst., with Sherman, at Fort McAllister, which had
been taker, by as-ault on the preceding day. Savan
na": wa- closely besieged, and its capture, with the
rebel forces there, ccadently expected; it was to be
nrroundtd in two days if cot surrendered. Gen.
herrE-iJi would open hia batteries upon it. Gen.
?osier reports that brier. i.aa'a army was in splendid
condition, having lived durir.g tbe march on turke,
hicken?, sweet pctatc.es and other good thing, in
the richest part of Georgia.
New York, D.-c. 19. The Richmond Senfentl of
the 16th fajs Gen. Foster is quiet under bis fail
ure on the iravannah Railroad. Sherman has seem
itgly despaired of opening a communication with
the sea at Beaufort. The capture of Fort McAllister
is announced, but the liability of its capture has
been well understood. Sherman will now be able to
get supplie by the way of Assabaw Sound, and
should he capture iiavannab, will have exchanged a
city in the interior for a uity on the coast which had
been comtleielv closed to commerce since the lo?g cf
Fort I'uUfcki in 1662."
Forth ess Monroe, Dc. 17. The steamers J'orth
em Light and Traruna arrived from Charleston last
night, with 8-X) reieaed Union prisoners. At the
time of sailing all the rigging of the men-of-war and
other vessels composiEg Admiral Dahlgren's fieet
ere gaily hung with colors, in token of the success
of some movement of Sherman's, the exact nature of
which could not be learLed.
Arming the Slaves.
New York, Dec. l'J. The Richmond Enquirer of
the Hoth has a semi-ttlicial editorial in favor of the
arming of the slaves, which says that Gen. Lee is in
favor of the proposition. The Enquirer says :
When we supplicate European nations for help, we
must be prepared to receive it on their conditions,
which will be tiie abolition of slavery." It also asks
" thall we prolong the war, sacrifice our children
aud destroy our country for the s 4ke of negroes ?'
It concludes ' We h ite, detest and despise the ene
my far more than we love slavery."
Sailing of I'orter'f Fleet.
New York, Dec 17. The Everting Post publishes
a detailed statement of the vessels computing Admiral
I'orter's tieet, which started upon an expedition on
Monday Dec. 12, from Hampton Roads. There are
in all sixty-four vessels, c irryiug 607 guns.

Kekpinq orr the Devil. Brigham Young lately
said iu a sermon : A gentleman said to we, I
would like to establish a billiard table aud drinking
saloon in your city; you inu.-t have such piaces here
by-und-by, any how. May be we will and may be
we will not; we will see whether God Almighty will
reign among his people, or whether the devil will. I
shall keep such Christian institutions cut of the city
us long as I can."
Washington. Dec. 15. A bearer of dispatches
from Admiral Dahigten arrived this moi ninu with
the following dispatch to the Secretary of the Navy :
Flag Ship Philadelphia, Port Royal, December 12.
To Gideon Welles, Secretary : It is my happiness to
apprise the Department that Gen. Sherman, with his
army, is near Savannah and I am in communication
with him. In view of his probable arrival I had
stationed several steamers at different points, and
had come from Telapenoy yesterday iu order to be at
hand. Captain Duncau states that our forces were
iu contact with the rebels a tew mile? outside of
Savannah. He says Sherman's army is uot in want
of anything Dahlgkfn."
Gen. Grant on the Result of the Llection. The
New York Tribune of November 14th affirm? that
the announcement of the result ot the Presidential
election pro iucel universal delight in Gram's army.
That gallant General himself sent the following con
gratulatory dispatch to Washington :
City Point. Thursday, Nov. 1010:30 p. M.
Hon. Ed win .". Stanton, Secretary of Jl'ar.
Enough now seems to be known to say who is to hold
the it-ins of Government for the next four years.
Congratulate the Piesilcut for me for the double
The election having passed off quietly, no blood
shed or riot throughout the laud, is a victory worth
more to the country than a battle won.
Ro-beidom and Europe will construe it so.
U. S. Grant, Lieutenaut General.
Ihe rebel President has received considerable con
demnation for bis unfortunate Macon speech, which,
says the Budget of Fun, may be the un-.'fucon of
him. The Charleston Jlercury at first declared it a
forgery, but when the Richmond papers copied it
and commented on it, the South Carolinians were
unanimous in their blame the .Mercury saying that
he must have been mad. The most singular thing is
that the Richmond press indorse it. This evidently
proceeds from the fact that Jeff. Davis delivered the
speech in a Virginian point of view, since it is found
ed on the idea tnat every State ought to send troops
to save Richmond, since if that goes all. is gone.
Governor Brown, whom Davis called a scoundrel by
'implication, says that Mr. Davis' remark is founded
ou his ignotance of State rights.
The Dctch Gap Canal. The Richmond Exan
iner of November i-'tii says :
It becomes every dy more likely that the Dutch
Gap canai will shortly be finished; that ironclads
can pass through it; ami that an immeuse fleet, fir
ing on D' twry's ami Chafiin's blutls, with the view
of clearing the banks of the river, will be the most
important feature of Grant's last etfort to take Rich
mond. This canal, at Dutch Gap, is a t-elf-impose J
toil. Duting the passage of Grant's army to the
south side, he or Butler found that our Confederate
ironclads would come down and attack him. To pre
vent this they sunk vessels in the river near Curie's
Neck. The Confederates planted batteries on the
bank ; the enemy were unable to take up their own
obstiuctious under the fire of the.e batteries, and
'.he river has been closed to the enemy's fleet from
that day to thi He has been compelled to dig a
canal to pass his own obstructions. Such is the
va ue cf obstructions in the channel of a river.
With good batteries in the neighborhood and sharp
shooters on the banks, no f.eet, ironclad or otherwise,
can pass by t'ncni nor get them out of the way. The
lesson was learned at Sebastepcl harbor, repeated in
the Peiho by the CiiiLesc, ami again at Dtewry's
Blulf in 1S02. The obstructions hastily sunk in the
river etved Richmond after the .Vtrrimac was blown
up. If the obsti uctions iu the live: below Chaiin's

Earl Rusfn-11 hid replied to the recent manifesto of
the Confederate Congress, expressing equal frendshtp
for the North and South, deprecating war and pledg
ing England to strict neutrality. He says, in reply
to J. Slideil and Dudley Minn : "I have had the
honor to receive a copy which you have sent me of
the manifesto issued by the Congress of the 8o-callei
Confederate States of America. Her Majesty's Gov
ernment deeply deplore the nature of the struggle
between the Northern and Southern States of the
Kraierly uniied republic of North America. Great
Briiaiu has since 173 remained, with the exception
of a short period, connected by friendly relations with
both the Northern and Southern States, and since
the commencement of the cruel war which broke out
in 15C1, ttr Majesty's Government has continued to
entertain sentiments of friendship equally for the
North and South. Of the causes of rupture, her
Majesty's Government has never pretended to judge;
they deplored the commencement of the sanguinary
struggle, and anxious'y look forward to a period of
its termination. In the meantime, they are con
vinced they must counsel the interests of peace and
the rights of all parties by observing a strict and
impartial neutrality. Such neutrality her Majesty
has faithfully maintained and will continue to main
tain. "(Signed,) Russell."
The London 77 mcs says c "From Earl Russell's
letter England finds no favor either with North or
South. First he snubs the Confederates ; they are
only so called Confederate States, and have yet to
establish their right to an appellation. This, too, is a
compliment to the Union States, but there follows a
couuter snub to the Unite! States ; they are th
formerly United Republic, but to say they were for
merly united is to imply they afe now disunited, and
to acknowledge there was an existence of Confederate
States. Earl Russell seems to be apparently tifraid
that neuter does not mean both, therefore he would
maintain, even in words, strict neutrality ; that it is
necessary to avoid any demonstration of friendship
to either belligerents."

will make some attempt to close the war by negotiat
ing for peace.

A meetiu2 was held at Bristol to celebrate Presi

The official Berlin paper regards Lord Napier's
appoiutmeut to the Court of Berlin as favorable to
the future friendly intercourse of Prussia and Eng
luud. Richard Ccbdcn addressed a great meeting at
Rochdale, Englaud. November 23d. He favored non
intervention in either European or American affairs.
Adverting to the war in America, he asked why the
South, as in other cases of rebellion, had not put
forth its grievuuets. The reason, he thought, was
that they had but one they wanted to consolidate,
perpetuate and extend slavery. Instead of stating
their grievances, they simply demand to be let alone.
This is the cry that has secured so much European
sympathy tor the insurrection. He regarded the
peaceable Presidential election as one of the most
sublime spectacles in the whole history of the world,
and said the people who could do that had given the
world an example such as never was presented before
by any other people. They resolved, notwithstand
ing their great 8icrifie.es, that slavery should be
abolished. He reiterated bis belief that be should
not live to see two independent States on the
continent of North America.
The Paris Temps and Journal des Debuts construe
the result of the Presidential election as evilence
that the war is now to be prosecuted with vigor until
the South is completely subjugated. The former says
it herald- forth the approaching re-establishment of
the Union and the final extirpation of slavery.
The Herald's London letter says : Responsible
parties sie makiug arrangements fur the speedy con
struction of a telegraph to America, by way of Green

The Herald's Paris letter says : The effect here of
the talk about freeing the Southern negro in behalf
of the rebels, is to increase interest on their side.
Convince the majority of the French people that
slavery is to end, and they will favor recognition.
The Emperor's real desire is that the South tdiall
abolish slavery and become an independent power.
Southerners in Paris encourage the idea that this
will be the final result.
