Surrender of Fort Morgan

Bin i I had the honor In my dispatch, No.
360, to report to the Department that Fort
Morgan had surrendered on the 34 last, to
the army and navy, though at the time that
dispatch was written and mailed the ceremony
of surrender had not actually taken place.
The correspondence preliminary to that event
Is herewith forwarded, (marked Noa. 1, a, S
and 4,) and the Department will perceive that
the terms of capitulation ware the same as In
the case of Fort Gaines. Gen. Para endear.
ored to obtain more favorable terms, but with
I regret to state that after the atsembllQff of
tho rebel officers at the appointed hour 2
p. m for the surrender outtUU the fort, it waa
discovered, on an examination of the Interior,
that moat of the guns were spiked, many of tha
guncarrlagea wantonly Injured, and arms, am
munition and provisions, Ac., destroyed! and
that there waa every reason to believe that this
had been done after the white flag had been
raised. It waa also discovered that Gen. Pace
and several of his officers had do swords to de
liver npi and further, that soma of those which
were surrendered had been broken.
The whole conduct of tho officers of Fort
Gaines snd Fort Morgan preeenta such a strik
ing contrast In moral principal that I cannot
fall to remark upon 1L Col. Anderson, who
commanded the former, finding himself In a
position perfectly untenable, and encumbered
with a superfluous number of conscript, many
of whom were mere boys, determined to sur
render a fort which he could not defend, aid
In this determination was supported by all his
officers save onej but from the moment he
hoisted the white flag be scrupulously kept
everything Intact, and in that condition deliv
ered It over, whilst Gen. Page and his officers,

which they had eaU they would defend to the
last, nut wnicn iney never aeienaca at aii, ana
threw awav or broke those weapons which
they had not the manliness to use against their
enemies, for Fort Morgan never fired a gun
ancr tne commencement oi ine oomoarament,
and the advanced pickets of our srmy were
actually on its glacis.
Aa before stated, the ceremony of surrender
took place at 3 p. m., and that same afternoon

The " Dcmocnllc " Comeillon, o oiled,
recently assembled tt Chicago, dlelloctly de
maoda, In Its platform of principles, " ces
sation of hostilities." A "cessation of hos
tilities" Is, In othsr words, an armistice. It
becomes the people of this country carefully
to consider Tthat nlU be tha effect of an armis
tice upon onr present straggle. We hare
blockaded the Bosthem porta. The effect of
this blockade has been to rednce the rebels to
extreme want for munitions of war and sup
plies for their people. Another effect of It
has been thst It has preyented the cotton of
the South from going to market.
This failure of the snpply of cotton to the
world hi! raised Its price from ten cents to
SO pence In gold. In the beginning of the
war the rebels made a loan In Europe based
upon a promise to pay that loan in cotton at
ten cents per pound. Cotton now being CO
pence per pound in price makes this loan worth
thrice the face of It, prOTldlng the cotton could
be tsken out of the Confederacy and sold In
Europe. The hope of getting out this cotton,
with whst Is actually carried out by running
the blockade, makes thst loan now worth
aoventy six cents on the dollar In gold. The
British Loan, or the Console of Zngland, Is
now worth eighty-nine In gold. The United
Bute J Loan Is worth about forty In gold.
Foreign nations hare endured e-ur blockade,
because we cstc been actively prosecut
ing the war. If an armistice should be de
clsred, there would be no reason why the
powers of Europo might not demand the Open
ing of theso Boutbern ports. The opening of
these ports would Immediately take the cotton
of the South to European markets, placo the
Confederate loan at a high premium and enable
the Confederacy to get all the money It needed.
With this money It could build prlvalocra so aa
to sccp onr commerce literally from the seas.
It could supply Itself with arms and muni
tions of war, with provisions and all the neces
sities of life, so as to leave no poeslblo hope of
ever crushing the rebellion. For then reasons

Capture of a Treasonable Dispatch
from Geo, N. Saunders.
The following dispatch passed through tho
Fortlsnd, Me., telegraph office yesterday. It
speaks for Itself. We are not responsible for
the bad spelling of Mr. Fillmore's name:

The above dispatch Indicates the class of
men who propose to keep McClcllan'a company
In administering the Government, should ho

mains to be seen whether Fillmore will obey
George Senders. "Vice" is wry satisfactory,

Important just now from the fact that the Rev.
Mr. Marks wrote his history Immediately after
McClellan abandoned tho Peninsula.
It was not written for political effect, nor by
a politician, but by an army chaplain who was
a faithful witness of the scenes which ho de
