elected by a largely increased majority over
that received by him last year, which was
5,088 rotes.
( Hartford, April 9. Governor Buck

was 2,000. The Senate is a unit against

West Virginia Election.
The people of West Virginia have voted
almost unauimously in favor of the new
Constitution, and have given majority of
at least ten to one in favor of gradual eman-
The vote was small but in the right direct

tion, that in some instances the voters tub-
titutad immediate for gradual.
The Great Battle.
Another great victory has been achieved by
the Union forces, near Corinth. All tho details
of the battle that baa been received up to the
time we go to press, will be found in another

: The "2nd Ohio Regiment was in the battle,
but we have received no information as to what
extent it suffered, other Uian thut Lieut. Colonel
Canfield, who commanded the Rpginient, (Col.
iSuckianu baving coinruand of a iirigaue.) was
mortally wounded, and has aince died. Col.
Canfield vaa vary prooiinent citiaen of Medi

one not only to his Regiment but to the State.
He has been in the Ohio Senate, and at the time

The following message was received by
the Secretary of War this evening:
"On the 6lh tbe rebels in overwhelming
forco attacked us at Pittsburg Landing.
Tbe battle Instod from early in the morn
ing until late in the afternoon and resulted
in tho complete defeat of the rebels with
heavy loss on both sides. Grant is follow
ing up the enemy.
Bticll has arrived on tho Tennessee. Two
Divisions of his army were in the battle."
Cairo, April 8. Information reached
here to-night that on tho 6lh tbe robot for
ces nnder Beauregard attacked onr forces
under Grant. 1 be battle raced all day.
Our lines were driven in by the attack, but
as tbe reserves were brought into action the
lost ground was regained and the rebels ro
pulsed with terrible slaughter. Our loss is
very hoavy. No particulars known yet.
Chicago, April 8. A private dispatch
received in this city to-night, from one of
Gon. Grant's Stall says: "Wo have fought
and won the hardest battle ever fought on
this Continent." Tho dispatch is dated
Pittsburg Landing, April 6th.
Pittsburg, via port Hknrv, April 9,
3.20 A. m. -One of the greatest and blood
iest battles of modern days has just closed,
resulting in the complete route of the eno-
my, who attacked ns at daybreak on Sun
day, iho battle lasted without intonnis
sion during the entire day, and was again
resumed on Monday morning and continu
ed until 4 o clock in the afternoon, when
tbe enemy commenced their retreat and
are still flying towards Corinth, pursuod by
a large force of our cavRlry.
The slaughter on both sides is immense.
It is impossible in the present confusod
stalo of affairs to ascertain any details. I
therefore give you the best account possible
from observation, baving passed through
the storm of action during tho two days
that it raged.
Tho fight was brought on by a body of
300 of tho 25th Missouri regiment, of Gen.
Prentiss' Division attacking tho advance
guard of the rebels, which were supposed to
be the pickets of the enemy in front of our
camp. Iho rebels immediately advanced
on Gen. Prentiss Division on the left wing.
pouring vonoy auer vouey ot musketry, and
riddling our camp with grape, canister and
shell.
Our forces soon formed in line, and re
turned their fire vigorously, and by tbo lime
we were prepared to receive them, had turn
ed their heaviest fire on tho left and and cen
ter of Sherman's Division and drove our
men back from their camps, and bringing
up a fresh force opened Cro on our left
wing under Gen. McClernand. This tire
was soon returned with terrible effect and
determinated spirit by both infantry and
.t I I. I- m ...
arunery aiong me wnoieune, lora distance
of over four miles.
Gen. Hurlburt's Division was thrown for
ward to support the center, when a desper
ate conflict ensued. The rebels were driv
en back with terrible slaughter, 'but toon
rallied and drove back our men in turn.
From about 9 o'clock, tho time your cor
respondent arrived on tbe field, until night
closed on tho bloody scene, there was no
determination of the result of the struggle.
lne rebels exhibited remarkable good Gen
eralship, At times engaging tbe left with
apparently their whole strength, they would
suddenly open a terrible nnd destructive
A it. ' I . , n
ure on aue ngui ana center. H,ven our
heaviest and most dostruclive fire, on the
enemy did not appear to discourage their
solid columns. The fire of Major Taylor's
inicago Artillery raked them down
scores; but the smoke would no sooner bo
dispersed than tho breach would again bo
filled. 5
Tbe most desperate firing took place late
in tbe P. M. The rebels knew that if thev
did not succeed in whipping us then, that
their chances for success would be extreme
ly doubtful, as a portion of General Buell's
forces bad by this time arrived on tho op
posite side of the river, and tbe other por
tion was coming up tbe river from Savan
nah. Tbey bocame aware that we wore
being reinforced, as tbey could see General
Buell s troops from tbe river bank a short
distance above as on tbe left, to which point
they had forced their way.
At nve o clock tbe rebels had forced onr
left wing back to as to occupy fully two
thirds of our camp, and were fighting their
way forward with a desperate degree
confidence in their efforts to drive ns into
the river, and at tha tame time heavily en
gaged our right.
Up to this time we bad received no rein
forcement. General Lew. Vi allaeo failed
to eom to onr support until tbe day was
over, baving taken the wrong road from
urn rap a Landing, and Doing without other
transports than those asod for Quartermas
ter's and Commissary atores, which were
too heavily laden to ferry any considerable
number of Geoeral Bueli't forces across tbe
river, those that war her having been
sent to bring the troop from Savsotiah.
wa went therefore contending against fear-
tui odds, our force not exceeding 88,000
men, wane thai ot lne enemy was upwards
of 60,000, ...,...
Our condition at this moment was ex
tremely critical, larg0 ,,arobers of men,
panio struck, others worn out by bard fighu
log, with the average per ccolage of skulk
ers, bad atrngglod towards the river and
could nor be rallied. Gan. Grant and staff
wno uaa been recklessly riding along the
lines during the ei.lire day amid the in.
eeasing storm of bullets, grape and shell
now rode from right to left, inciting the
inuu to lumi urin until our reiuiorcemoots
could croi tha met
Col. Webster, chief of staff, immediately
?ot illto position the heaviest pieces of ar-
fillery pointing en lU enemy' rmhL while
. W s'.. of the CZU mW plant!
ed along tbo entire line, from the river bank
North-west to our extreme right, tome two
and a half mile distant.
About an hour beforo dark gen oral ean
onade wat opened upon the enemy fiorri
alone our whole line, with perpetual crack
of musketry. For short time the rebels
replied with visor and effect, but their re
turn shota grew less frequent and destruc
tive, while ours crew more rapid and more
terrible. The irunboats Lexington and Ty
ler, which lay a short distance off, kept
rmmnif shell on the rebel hordes.
This last effort was too much for the enemy
i and ere dusk the firing had nearly ceased,
I when, tiitrlit coming on, all tbo combatants
rested from their awful work of blood and
carnage. Our men rested on their arms in
the position they had at the close of the
nifiht. The forces under Mai. Gon. Wal
lace arrived and took position on the right
and met Buell's forces from the opposite
side, and Savannah being now converted to
tbo battleground, the entire right of Uon
Nelson s division was ordered to form on
the right and the forces under Gen. Critten
den were orderod to his support early in the
morning.
SECOND DAY'S BATTLE.
in
of
General fluell having arrived during tbe even
ing, in the morning the hnll waa opened at dnT-
liglit, simultaneously by Gro. Nelson's division
on the lelt and Alnj. Gen. Wallace's division on
the right Gen. Nclsou's forco opened a most
galling fire and advanced rapidly as the enemy
tejl bark. The fire soon became general along
the whole line and began to tell with terrible
effect on the enemy. Gen's McClernand, Sher
man, and riurlburt s men, though tcrrihly juuetl
from the previous day's fighting, still preserved
their honors won at ikinoUon, hut I he resistance
of the rebel at all points was terrible; but they
were not enough lorour unuaunteu ornvery,anu
the desolation produced by our artillery, wnicn
was sweeping them away like chaff before the
wind; yet, knowing that a defeat here would be
a death blow to their hopes, and that their all
depended upon this great struggle, their Gener
als still urged them on in the face of destruc
tion, hoping by flanking us on the right to turn
the tide of battle. Their auccena wns again for
a time cheering, as they Wgnn to gain ground
on us, appearing to have been reinforced, hut
our left under Gen. Nelson, was driving them
with wonderful mpidity, and by 11 o'clock, Oen.
Buell's force had succeeded in flanking them
and capturing their batteries of artillery.
Thev. however, aeain rallied on tbe left and
re-crossed, and the right forced themselves for
ward in another desperate effort, but reinforce
ments from Gen. Wood and Gen. Thomas were
coming in Regiment after Regiment, which were
sent to Gen. Buell who had again commenced
to drive the enemy.
About o 1'. At., Hen. Grant rode to the lelt
where the fresh regiments had been ordered,
and finding the rebcla wavering, tent a portion
ot his buoy-guard to the head ot each nve reg
iments, and then ordered a charge acrosB the
field, himself lending. As he brandished his
sword and waved them on to the crowning vic
tory, while cannon balls were failing like hail
around bim. The men followed with a shout
that sounded above the roarand din of artillery,
and the rebels tied in dismay as Irom a destroy
ing avalanche aud never made another stand.
Gen. Bueli followed tho retreating rebela, dri
vine them in splendid ftyle, and by hall past 5
o'clock the whole rebel army was in full retreat
to Corinth with our cavalry in pursuit, with
what Further result is not known, they not hav
ing returned up to this hour.
We have biken a large amount of their artil
lery and also a number of prisoners.
Among the killed on the rebel side was their
General-in-Chief Albert (Sidney Johnston, who
was struck by a cannon ball on the forenoon of
Sunday. Of this there is no doubt, ns the report
is corroberated by several rebel otftccrs, taken
to-day. It is further reported that Beauregard
had hia arm shot on.
There has never been a parallel to the gallan
try and bearing of our ofhcein, from the coni
manding General to the lowest officer. General
Grant, and Staff were in the field, riding along
the lines in the thickest of the fire, during the
entire two days of the battle, and slept on the
ground Sunday ntgnt auring a neavy ram.
Un several occasions Uen. urant got within
range of the enemy's guns and was discovered
and fired upon. .Lieut. Col. Alcl'lierson had his
horse shot from under him, when alongside
Hen. Grant. Uspt. Larson was near Hen. Urant
when a cannon ball took off his head, and killed
several others. Gen. Sherman had two horses
killed under bim aud Gen. McClernard shared
like dangers; also Gen. Hurlburt, each of whom
received bullet holes through their clothes.
Gen. Buell remained with his troop during the
entire day, and with Gen. Crittenden and Gen.
Nelson, rode continually along the lines encour
aging the men.
Our loss in officers is very heavy. It is im-
posxible at present to present their names. The
following were among me nuinner: is rig. uen.

day night in regard to the operations at
Yorkfown nnd fortress Monroe: ..
Before Yorktown, Saturday Evening.
Hon. Edwin M. Stanton, Secretary of War:
That portion of the army of tho Potomac
recently concentrated at old roint advanc
ed yesterday morning in the direction of
Yorktown, 14 miles distant. Ibo right
was assigned to Gen, Morrill's Brigade,
Gon. Porter' Division, two companies
tho 3d Penn. Cavalry and a portion
Bcrdnn's Sharpshooters acting as skirmish
ers. Nothing of interest took placo until thoir
arrival at Big Bethel, twelve miles distant,
where they met the outer pickets of the
rebels. Tho troops wero delayed here two
hours constructing a bridge which had been
destroyed. Tho rebels retreated beforo the
ndvnnco of our skirmishers to Howard's
Creek, where they bad somo abandoned
earthworks. Shots wore fired hero by tho
robels from two field pieces, which wero
soon silenced by the 4th Rhode Island bat
tery, when the rebels beat a hasty retreat,
taking their pieces with them.
Tho mnin body of the army rested hero
for night, while Morrill s Hngndo advanced
3 miles to Cucklovillc, 6 miles from York-
town.
By 1 o'clock this (Saturday) morning
me column wns again in mouon, ana uy
10 o'clock was in front of tbo enemy's
works at Yoiktown. Tbe first shot was fired
by tho rebels, tho shell passing over tho
heads of Gen. Porter and staff, without ex
ploding. The batteries of Griffin's 1st And
3d R. I. and 5th Mass. were placed in posi
tion, replying to every shot sent from tho
rebels.
Tho cannonading continued with but
slight interruption until dark ; about 400
shots were fired by both parties during the
day. Tho loss on our side was thrco killed
and some five wounded. Tho position
the rebels is a strong one. From present
indications their fortifications extend somo
two miles in length and mount heavy guns.
The ground in front of their guns is low
and swampy.
Tho latest news from Yorktown by tele
graph, April 8, is that everything is pro-
grossing satisfactorily, and a battlo is not
expected within a day or two.
From Bank's Division

Tbo enomy are encamped near Mt. Jack
son. I li positions occupied bv our ad
vanced batteries, commanding all the ele
vations beyond Stony Creek, wero select

Ih CiiirAnclolM hafl ben AnirAirAd with reb
ol batteries on tho Ky. shoro all day, be
tween hero nnd Point Pleasant five places
fortified by rebels havo been discovered, but
are all placed in such n position as to pro
vent an altompt of forces crossing. Tho
Carondolet and our batteries fired sholl
with great precision into tho rebel batteries
and silenced their guns at one point alto
gether. The Confederates aro making
every effort to forlify the Ky. shoro' thor
oughly ; their guns are twenty-four 32't.
Tho Grampus made her appearance once
to day, but did not however come in range.
It is thought that tho Carondolet can eas
ily silonco all rebel batteries whenever nec
essary. Detachments sent ashore from the
Cnrontlolet, spiked tho guns and doslroyed
the enrriages of a rebel battery on tha Ten
nessee shoro opposite Point Pleasant.
On Board the Stm'r D. F. Wilson, )
Island No. 10, April 2d, 1862. J
A most dnring exploit was performed
last night by Col. Roberts and fifty picked
men from his regiment, tho 4 2d Illinois.
Tho night was intensely dark and a pre
vious gale of wind and thunder Btorm pro
vailed. During tho height of tho storm
Col. Roberts aud bis men in five yawls,
managod by a crow from tho gunboats, left
the Benton and with muffled oars and under
cover of the darkness crawled down the
stream in tho direction of the upper bntterv
When within a few rods of it a blinding
flash of lightning glared upon tho water
revealing tho boats to the sentries. They
fired upon our men fivo or b!x shots, the
balls whistling cvorbead and doing no dam
age. They then continently fled back to
the camp, which is located some distanco
to tho renr of tha battery. Our men mado
no replv but pulled tip to tho fortifications,
springing over tho parapot and in throo
minutes timo spiked All the guns, six in
number. Col. Roberts himself spiked a
bugo eigbly-pound pivot-gun. The boat
then returned without a man receiving a
scratch.
New Madrid, April' 6. At last the
blockade is passed the guaritlot is run
the navigation of the Mississippi proved
possible, in spito of rcbol guns and rebel
fortifications. Tho U. S. gunboat Cnron
delct, Capt. II. Walker, arrived this morn
ing at 1 o'clock, having passed tho fortifica
tions at Island No. 10, and tho battcrios
upon the main land opposite, and now lies
safely moored to the shoro under tho guns
of the upper forts at New Madrid. The
Carondelct left the fleet last evening at
10 o'clock, during a terrific thunder storm,
and having takeu a barge in tow laden with
bay and coal to serve as a protection from
tho enemy's balls, extinguished her lights
put on steam and rapidly sailed down . the
river.
Tho first intimation tho rebels had of the
attempt to run the blockade was tbo fire
which issued from tbe burning chimney ot
the gunboat, nnd immediately it was greet
ed with a shower of balls from infantry
stationed at the upper battery, tbo snmo
which was so effectually spiked by Col.
Roberts. A signal rocket was then sent up,
nnd in an instant tho entire lino of batter
ies were a blaze of flame. Four batteries
on tho Kentucky shore, and one on the
point of tho Island fired in quick succession,
but the Uarondelet passed them ull in sale
ty, and unmindful of tbo leaden and iron
hail which fell around, passed thro'igh the
firey ordeal unhurt. Not a man was injured,
and excepting a few musket balls wbicli
struck tho iron plated sides of the gunboat,
she wns not touched
The floating battery is located three
miles below the Island, and bestowed
parting shower of blnzing compliments as
the Carondolet glided quietly by. J. he
Hollins ram, Manassas, did not open
Officers and men acquitted thomselvos with
admirable courago and fidelity. Owing to
tbo intense darkness, officers could not make
an extensive and satisfactory reconnoisance
of the batteries, but the enemy probably
did las best, iho lire was trcmoudous.
Chicago, April 6. Cairo special to
Post: Daniel Wright, formerly a sailor of
Oswego, arrived bere to-day, baving desert
ed Beauregard s army a week since, says
there are about 60,000 troops at Corinth.
No heavy guns or large works. One regi
ment was under arrest for disloyalty to tho
rebel cause. Their army is represented in
a state bordering on insubordination. In
formant thinks there will be a stampede
attacked.
Chicago,' April 7. A special to tbe
Tribune from Cairo says tho gun-boat Pitts
burg ran tbe blockade last night nnder
terrific fire from the rebel batteries. ; Four!
tteam transports and fivo barges wero also
got through from Phillips Landing, abovo
tbe Island, to JNew Madrid, by Uol. Bissel
corps of Engineers, under a heavy fire
gunboats, silencing one rebel battery.
A company nnder Capls. Lewis and
Marshall crossed the river at New Madrid
and spiked the guns. Another force took
three other batteries, spiked tho guns, and
threw tbe ammunition into tbo river, nt 11
o'clock, in face of a fire from tbe remaining
rebel batteries. '
Gen. Paine, with four regiments snd
battery of artillery; crossed tbe Mississippi
river to tho Kentucky shore. Subsequent
ly divisions under Oenorals Hamilton ' and
Stanley crossed, also Ges. Granger with
his cavalry. They are now strongly posted
ready for any emergency. '
It is believed bere that forty eight hours
will decide tbe fate of Island 10. :

was received at tho Navy Department this

Flao-Suip. Benton. . . .1
' Island No. 10, April j
Hon. Gideon Wells, Secretary of the
Navy: j
I have to inform ths Dopartmont that'
since I sent tho telegram last night announ
cing tho surrender to me of Island No. 10,
possession has been taken both of tho Island
ami the works upon the Tenocssoo shoro by
tho gun-boats . and tho troops under com
mand of Gon. Bufort. Seventeon officors
and 308 privates, besides '100 of their sick
and 100 on board the transports, aro in our
bands, unconditionally prisoners of war.
"I have caused a hasty examination to be
made of tho forts, batteries and nmunitions
of war captured. There are eleven earth
works, with 70 heavy cannon, ranging in
calibre from 32 to 100 pounders rifled.
Tho magazines aro well supplied with pow
der, and thcro aro large quantities of shot
and shell and other munitions of war, nnd
also, great quantities of provisions. Four
steamers afloat have fallen into our hands,
and two others, with the rebel gun-boat
Grampus, Arfl suuk, but will bo easily rais
ed. The floating battery of 16 heavy guns,
turned adrift by tha rebels, is said to be
lying on the Missouri shoro, below Now
Madrid. ' . '" ------ -
"The cnomy upon the mainland appear
to havo fled with groat precipitatios after
dark last night, Icftving in many cases half
propnred meals in their quarters, and thoro
seems to havo boen no concert of aclioo bo
tweon tho rebels npon tho Island and those
occupying tho shore, but tho latter fled,
leaving tho former to their fato. These1
works, erected with the highest engineering
skill, are of great strength and with their
natural advantages would havo been impre
gnable, if defended by mon fighting in a
bolter cause. 1 -'
"A combined attack of tho nnvnl and
land forces would havo taken place this P.
M. or to-morrow morning, had not tbo reb
els so hastly abandoned this stronghold.
To mature tho plans of attack, absolutely
required 23 days of preparation.
"Gen. Pope is momentarily expected to
arrive with bis army at this point, ho hav
ing successfully crossed tho river yesterday
under a heavy fire, which no doubt led to
the hasty abandonment of the works.
"I mn unofficially informed that tho two
gun-boats which so gnllnnlly ran the firo of
the rebel batteries a low days sinco, tester
dny attacked and reduced a fort of tho cno
my opposite, dismounting 8 heavy guns.
