whose names they cannot pronounce and of

Ik'lford of Colorado, who is the repre

on the Indian question, availed himself of
the opportunity to go over the story of the
Meeker massacre o id to make an indis
criminate assault upon tho Indian policy ot
the administration and upon all Indians,
good, had and indillerent. Uelford thought
there should bo no appropriation for the
White River agency becauso the White
Rive L'tes had left that agency, an opinion
in which the house did not concur. He
also very violently denounced the genera
management of Indian all'airs.

Hooker, of Mississippi, who spent a good
.1 i .i . i ,
(.((.mi ui miii; nn uic piains last year as a
member of tlie sub-committee of the com
mittec on Indian affairs, also took strou'
grounds aga'nst the administration of In
dian affairs by civiliaus, and insisted that
the whole management of the Indian ser
vice would be transferred to the war de
partment. Gen. Hooker, in the course of
his speech, paid a very eloquent tribute to
(Jen. Crook, uow stationed at Omaha, of
whom Hooker had heard from various In
dian tribes the highest encomiums, several
Indian chiefs whose bands had been con
quered by Crook, stating that although
every Indian 'agent had lied to them they
could always rely upon the soldier's word.
The bill was under the management of
Hon. Krastus Wells, who made a briet
statement at the outset, showing that the
estimates of the department were $ 1,8!3,-S-H.
The appropriation for the ioux had
been reduced from fclT.o'OO to $ 1,382,-

HIS FIRST GREAT VICTORY.
'OF jn.L OIIANT 'D lh MEN" AT T3UT
DO 1EL.SON HIS FIIIST CHEAT VICTOHY,
AND HOME OF TUE FACTS TUAT LFD CP
On Monday, February ICth 1SC2, the
citizens and soldiery of Cairo, were rejoiced
over the receipt of tho following pointed
"At 0 o'clock on Sunday morning the
rebel forces at fort Donelson sui rendered
to General Grant unconditionally!"
Upon this intiRigenco tho ce' .tor o; the
only newspaper then published in Cairo,
commented as follows:
"In so many words this intelligence
reached Cairo yesterday morning. The
manifestations of joy that ensued were re
versal and enthusiastic. They bore in
themselves the evidences of tho deepest
sincerity. From tho fort here, and the for
tifications at Bird's Point, the cannon were
made to thunder forth a glad salute; in
various parts of the city the stars and
stripes were Hung to the breeze, and upon
every face, old and young, the intente hap
piness of the heart was strikingly mrii
fested." From tho thousand and one repor's f'om
the scene of action reliable and unreliable
the same editor collated the following,
which relates more especially to Saturday's
fighting. The extract is re-published, not
as an authentic account of tlie bloody con
tlict, but as a reminder of certa-n details
that form no part of "official reports," and
to bring afresh to the minds of our people
the mingled feelings of sorrow and exulta
tion that then moved tho hearts of loyal
"On Saturday morning," (so the report
ran) "the battle was resumed with uuusual
vigor and determination. The 8th, 18th,
23th and 31st Illinois occupied a position
above the fort, the 8th holding the extreme
right, the 18th next, then the 31st and 20th.
After another severe night, our men were
about to prepare a little food when the
rebels opened upon them a fire of musketry
mat was won calculated to citato the wild-
est confusion if not a panic; but the line of
battle was at once formed, and the storm of
leaden hail returned, perceptibly th'nrrn"
the rebel ranks as thev advanced. There
are many reasons for believing that the
real object of the rebels was to evacuate the
fort, and to cut their wav through Colonel
Oglesby's command ia doing so; but, nl-
though they seemed as an overnowerin"
host, and from advantageous positions
showered upon Our ranks the most-
murderous volleys of musketry, grape and
canister, killing aud wounding our men al-
most by companies at every round, yet the
stars and stripes moved not a single foot
backward. Bravely, determinedly, without
flinching, the four regiments held tlic'r
ground, dealing death, dying md lighting
against appalling odds 'n tlie face of every
disadvantage. The 18th regiment seems to
have resisted the sevc-est storm. A"ainst
their ranks the rebels directed their heav-
k-st fire; but instead of fallim? b,irk n1Pr
advanced to tho very .face of the enemy,
und there stood as it were iu the very jaws
oi uiraui, ii'Miuilo-urave V lini i eternimnil.
i. i i ... .
ly with scarcely a prospect that a single
onc would escape sure rnd swift destruc-
tion. For three hours these four regiments
uumberiug scarcely three thousand men ,
fought the whole rebel garrison. At one
time the 18th, being par; '.ally flanked, was
exposed to a cross-fire of both musketry
and artillery, but our right wing securing
the rebel's left at once relieved them.
During this critical moment Col. Michael
K. Lawler fell pierced by two musket balls.
Captain Brush, acting lieutenant-colonel,
assumed command, but was soon wounded.
Capt. Cruse was shot dead; Lieutenants
Mansford und Thompson were killed;
Lieutenants R. Kelly nnd Scanlan wounded;
Captains Dillon and Wilson were wounded;
so that the daring Egyptian regiment stood
before tin overwhelming foe almost without
the officers actually necessary to direct its
operations. How desperately they fought,
l. i....'ii.ii . ..if I
iow terr.oiy iney suuereo can never Do
fully known. They fell in heaps, dead and
wounded. Companies were bereft of their
captains and lieutenants; captains were al-
most bereft of companies ! .
Tho 18th, 20th and 31st did their duty
nobly. Colonels Oglesby, Marsh and
Logan, dashed along their ranks, waring
. . a, . ai 77
their hats, and cheering their men on to tho
conflict. "Suffer death my men," cried
Logan, "hut disgrace never." And well
they heeded him. Many fell, killed and
, , . .u ,
wounded. Among tho former wo are
pained to4 namo Lieutenant Colonel
White, and among the latter Logan.
Oglesby's (the 8th) and Marsh's (the
20th) fought desperately and suffered se-
Torely, losing, like the other regiments,
an iinduo proportion of officer. Colouel
Oglesby displayed a coolness and courage

that have elicited the highest praise, and
served well in stimulating his men to deeds
Never perhaps on tho American conti
nent has a more bloody battle been fought.
An officer who participated and was wound
ed in . the fight, informs us that tho
scene beggars description, aud must ever
be beyond the conception of thoso who
were not present. Ilo says that he scarcely
thinks ho exaggerates when ho says that bo
thickly was tho battle-field strewn with the
dead and wounded that he could have trav
ersed acres of it, taking almost every step
upon a prostrate body. Tho rcbeU fought
with desperation, seeming to bo inspired
with what will provo measurably true,
that their hopes for success in this rebel
lion were intimately connected with the
result of the battle then raging. Their
artillerists were skillful, using their pieces
adroitly and with most fearful effect. On
cither sido could be heard the voices of
those in command cheering their men on,
using every means to fix them in the pur
pose to die rather than yield the contest.
In such a fight the four Illinois regiments
we have named held their ground fur full
three hours. Nearly one-third of the
whole number had been killed or wounded,
yet the balance stood ready and willing to
fall sacrifices to their country. Over three
hundred of the 18th were still in death, or
suffering from wounds. The other com
mands had suffered less, but greatly; and
for all, without relief, it appeared that
nothing short of annihilation could bo exr
pected. At this juncture reinforcements
arrived. The battle was waged with re
newed vigor on our side, but with scarcely
less determination on tho part of tho
rebels. For an hour it was continued, the
slaughter on both sides being frightful, but
upon that of the rebels immeasureably tho
greatest. About four o'clock, P. M., out
right wing turned their left, givirg a turn
to the tide of battle, that soon operated
greatly in our favor. The rebels fell back
into the fort, the stars and stripes were
planted upon the position occupied by their
left wing, and fur the time, at least, tho
carnage and slaughter ceased.
The number ot regiments that composed
the reinforcements have not all been ascer
tained. In this connection the 7th, 29th
and 48th Illinois, and the 11th Indiana arc
sPokcn ofi l,ut others were engaged, two or
