We call especial attention to the dispatch from St. Louis, received at a late hour last night. Not ouly is Nashville ours, but Gov. Harris has called ia all the Tennessee troops I Tbe rebellion, like the- basele99 fabric of a vision," will soon disappear. A few more days, and the Mississippi will be open to its raoutb. Push on the columns ! t?F One of tbe most valuable results of the war will be the dissipation of the theory so long upheld by Southern slaveholders and Northern doughfaces, that "Cotton ia King." The South ha3 been closely block aded for nearly nine months and yet with the exception of a trilling advance in the price of cotton goods, no one has been in commoded by the scarcity of the " great etaple." The destitution in England, and the suspension of cotton factories "13 not owing to a short supply of cotton. The stock ou hand ia enormous, and it is being shipped from Liverpool to" 3Tevv ' York in large quantities. The operations in Lan-, cashire are idle, because the demand for their productions baa been cut off. The North has ceased to import cotton goods to any great extent, and the factories stand stilt because there are no consumers. The Manchester papers in able articles, have called the attention of Englishmen to this fact, and urged upon them the importance of peace with America. The war has stimulated the growth of cotton in other lands more than could have been accomplished in twenty years of peace. Every available acre iu the Britiuh king dom will ere long be cultivated and cotton will come to the Liverpool docks from Africa, Australia, India and tbe Islea of the sea. Besides this the attention of the North has been turned to the cultivation and man ufacture of flax, and since Sumter was bom barded, a short nine months ago, Yankee ingenuity and skill have produced prints, made from flax, of superior texture to those made of cotton. Henceforth, Cotton instead of being King, will be a snfetnissive and humble subject. There is. no Kiug but the Lord, and He, in His infinite wisdom is bringing lo nought, " the counsels of traitors and rebels against constituted authority. ta? Official accounts state tbe results of the victory of Roanoke Island, to be the possessionof the Island and the control of all the inland waters of North Carolina, and of tbe Southern approach to Norfolk ; the capture of six forts and batteries, and the destruction ot a seventh. The capture of 34 heavy cannon, 2,527 prisoners, 3,500 stand of arms, 75 t0D3 of ammunition superior winter quarters forover 5.000 men f and the entire destruction of the rebel fleet This W9S done at the expense of fifty men killed, and 222 wounded on onr side. W& The rebel Major General Earl Van Dorn has turned up in Arkansas, from commanders of troops within his district to report the strength and conditions of the! commands to him, and commands all offi cers and soldiers to return immediately to tueir regiments, as " there is a necessity for me immediate service of every soldier in the district." This disposes of Price ia a very summary way. " ' SPkThe 1st Indiana Cavalry have" re runt I li 1 i i . v .. j u.u tuutea to their regiment, four small rilled steel cannon.

W. Lander: The President directs me to say that he has observed with pleasure the activity and enterprise manifested by, yourself ami the officers and soldiers of your command. Yen have shown how much may be done, In the j worst weather and worst roads, by a spirit-" ed officer at the head of a small force of brave men, unwilling to waste, life in camp s when the enemies of their country are with- 1 in reach. Your brilliant success is a happy presage of what may be 'expected when the army of the Potomac shall be led to the Celd by their gallant General. . ; v n . (Signed) " Edwiv M. Stanton'; 4 Secretary of War. Various constructions" have been" placed on this bulletin of Secretary Stanton. Some regard it as anrindireet censure of Generaj McClellan's inactivity. ' If, they argue, Gen. Lander can move an army over,, tbe moun tainous regions about Romney, Cumberland r and Winchester, why can't Gen. McClellan do something on the Potomac ? The New York World, however, sees in the bulletin an intentional design to compliment General McClellan ia advance. It says. " We are glad to see in this order praising tbe brilliant achievement of Gen. Lander, an expression of Secretary Stanton's high opinion of Gen. McClellan, whose great victory oa the Potomac be generously dis counts in advance. All tbe current victo ries are probably mere preludes to the tri umph of Gen. McClellan's immediate com mand over tbe main tidy- of the rebel ar- my which will probably be the most smag niDcent Victory ever fought and won.- ' ; The Iew Yorkers seem unwilling to give the credit of the victory at Fort, Ponelson to tbe Western boys, to whom it properly belongs. When the news was received in that city, the World say9 M groups' colleclel about the bulletin boards, shonttng for Com modore Foote, his victory, the President, the Union, Gen. McClellan, and almost every thing and everybody else of a patriotic character.'

Shaw, and 25th Indiana, Col. Veatch, from their encampment towards the enemy, who were entrenched about a mile direct therefrom. The advance was made steadily and" in as "good order as the ground, would admit of until we reached the ravine af the" Lass of the hill ob which were the enemy's fortifi cations. Here we halted until the line could be formed, when "the 25th Indiana, under "Coll VeatcBj moved" steadily up the till and towards, the entrenchments under a most galling firet Of. musketry: and grape, until their onward progress, was obstructed by the failea.timber apd brushwood, .which impeded thejr farther, progress. " naving" however, succeeded in gaining an advanced position they held , it; nnBinchingly for more than two hours until ordered to fall back out of range of the enemy's fire. : The loss of this Regiment in killed and wound ed was very severe. The 14th Iowa ad vanced at the same time and took position on the right, and across a ravine, and did good execution. Whilst these two regi ments were taking the above positions the Iowa 7th, under.JLieut. Col. Parrett, came up in fine style, and took a position ia tbe center between the 25th Indiana end. 14th Iowa. The 1st Kegiment,, sharpshooters, Western Division, Lieut. , Col.- Compton. were posted on the hill, to the extreme right, except a detachment of about sixty who were deployed as skirmisher onA ' dered most efficient service in that capacity, uuu piuviuK uy metr ooaaiy aim, that they are a most valuable arm of the service We held this position until night, when we fell .back, to . the position occupied in th morning.

Here 1 received , j - your order nia - to fix bayonets and charge the rebels, and possioie, anve teem irom tneir works. The timber was so thick that we could only see here and there a part of the rebels' works, but. could form no , idea of their range or extent. I sent forward, as direct ed, the flank companies, A and BT Captains Saltzman- and RUeinlander, . to .deploy, as skirmishers, which they did most admira bly, and the Regiment moved forward on the charge. Our flank companies, as tbey advanced, found the enemy's works ex tended far to our left, and they very prcpsrly moved to the left, and took position on a hill, where they did valuable service by preventing a fire on our flank from the enemy's iifla pits, and ia keeping silent a six-ponnd field piece that was .brought to tear on us from that direction."4 At the foot of the hiil the enemy poured on us a terri ble fire of musketry, grape and eannister, with a few shells The jrebel .breastworks were now in plain view. on the top pf the hill. The heavy timber on the hill e't it bad been felled, proving a dense mass of brush and logs. Through and over thes obstacles our men advanced against the en- 1 emy's fire with perfect coolness and steadi ness, never halting tor a moment until they received your order. . After a halt of a few moments they ' sgain - advanced - within a short distance of the enemy's breastworks, where the fire from a six-pound field piece and twelve-pound howitzer on onr right, was so destructive that it became necessary to halt and direct tha men to lie down to save us from very heavy loss. - " - ' After remaining under a very heavy fire for two hours and fifteen minutes, with no opportunity to return the fire to advantage, the enemy being almost entirely hid, and seeiDg no movement indicating-a further advance from any part of the Une,"I asked your permission to withdraw my regiment, to save it from heavy loss, where we could do no good. In retiring, owing to the na ture of the ground and our exposed posi tion, the men were thrown iato slight con fusion, but they rallied promptly at the foot of the hill, and remained in that "position until night, when we moved back, as di rected by yoii,' to the ground we occupied in the morning. We lost in this action fourteen killed and sixty-one wounded. - Oa the 14th, considerable firing was kfipt up between our skirmishers and tbe enemy's sharpshooters, but 1 nothing of importance occurred. - - -' . ; On the 1 5th, at 2 o'clock i. m., we formed a line of battle, and I sent forward Company B, Cant. Rheinlander. to denlov-B9 skir mishers, and advance in front of the regi ment. This order be executed promptly, and moved his company forward at double quick. A few moments after, the order came to me to move ray regiment by the left flank, and follow to support the 52d In diana and 2d Iowa regiments. This move ment left Cfipt. Rheinlander without sup port, but he advanced boldly to the enemy's rifle pits, to the right of the point where they were being attacked by the Iowa 21, and drove back the enemy, and was among the first, if not the t try first, of our forces that mounted the breastworks. -1 11 We moved by the left Hank to the creek bottom ou our lelVand beyond some old houses, where the left halted, and the right was brought forward ; and we advanced in line of battle up the hill, oa the. run,' and entered the enemy's . works at the point where they had been 'taken by the 2d Iowa. We pushed forward across the field in the direction of the heaviest firing, until we reached the bottom of a deep hollow,- Here we halted to form our line, which was somewhat broken in advancing, and pre pared to move forward, but seeing the forces in front of us slowly retiring, we remained in line to cover them, and when they had all passed by us w e marehad . back Jn good order to the broat works, which we held during the night.- Our loss in this action was forty wounded many of them se verely. . -, I cannot bestow too high praise on the conduct of the officers, in both of these ac tions. To Lieut. Col. Morgan and Major Foster I am much indebted tor the fearless and energetic manner in which they dis charged their duties.- Their -conduct -is worthy of the highest commendation. Ad jutant Walker and Sergeant Major Jones were brave, prompt, and faithful, and were ever ready to carry orders in the thickest of the fight. Capt. Laird, of Co. K,-was se verely wounded iu the leg, oa the 13th, while leading his company to the chare-e.- He refused to leave the field, and when at last ho was compelled to leave, he cheered his men when he retired. Captains Saliz- mau and Rheinlander, commanding the nauK companies, rendered very valuable service, and were often placed in exposed positions. The other Captains and Lieutenants, al most without exception, displayed great courage and energy, and are worthy of the nighest praise. 1 could not mention one without naming all. The Regimental Band and Chaplain were actively engaged in re moving the wounded from the field, and providing for their wants at the hospital. : l ne conduct or the Surgeon and Assistant Surgeon is esteemed " worthy of especial mention. Assistant Surgeon Arthur White devoted himself to relieving the wants of tbe wounded and suffering at the hospital, while the Principal Surgeon, Dr. John T. Walker, followed the regiment to the field and received the wounded as they fell in the fight. It was the first time that our men had ever been exposed to the fire, and they stood it with the firmness of veterans. Many instances of personal courage and good conduct of non-commissioned officers and men occurred, but so numerous were they that it would be difficult to point out particular cases. The conduct of the vari ous companies was uniformly jrood and worthy ot the highest praise.
