A 3 II T An U L A : Saturday Worning, Kay 3, 18G2. NEW ORLEANS TAKEN. Tl most Importnot . news that w ptibliiib this week i that whleh comes tbrongV a TeUr- bnrg nnd Richmond pspw, anno-ricing the rip tore of New-Orleans by the National forcei. The Pttcrtilurg Bxprtie of Saturday professes to have (k dcipntch from Mobile, announcing that our fleet passed Fort Jackton on Tbnra day, and that when the now thereof reached Xew-Orieans the eicitcinent was boundless. Martial law wai proclaimed, and all the cotton and"Bteatnboali,excpt thoae reqalred for trans- portalion were bawed. Corroborating this Is a d:apatch from Gen. MePowell, who gives the substance of what had appeared io The Rich' mond Examiner on Saturday, to the effect that Xew-Orlenris had been taken, and that there was a great destruction of cotton and steam boats. As this Intelligence is forwarded through the War Office, it Pisy be prernmed that there it is regarded ns trustworthy. Th Hon. C. L. Tallandighora bas been making igorrs effort to add to hi gtott of fame by rising in the place he is suffered to occupy, nod applying to Senator Wade a few of those choice epithets which eopply the vocabulary, and drop with so roach force and fituess from the lips of class of gentlemen w hich forbearance allows a place on tbio, as well as the other side of Dixie. "A liar, a coward, and a sconn drcl." Very much in the way of cornpli mint, Mr. V. we suppose, is not capable of bestowing, Int he should nevertheless have credit for doing what he can. It is mat ter of serious doubt wheiher Mr. W. could long survive a direct attack of the appro- , bation and favor of one whose political and social affiuities aud affiliations God a ronsoo ' noco so melifluous with the Breckiiiridgcs, the Bornets, and the greater and lesser lights in the world of treasou. The success which crowns Mr. Vallniidigliam' . efforts to gain a name is emioeo'.ly worthy of the man, aud will speedily place him where there will rctaa'n but little more for human emluiiun to aspire to.

There seem to be something ef a muss in Kansas between the abolition and" pro-sravcry-ftes. lis origin, we should judge, reaches back anterior to the war, but the influence of present position and circum- Mt.nAHJ. t. n tn.nm. t imi ti i in ran rtui ti rr - MOULDS UIC fcUIUW J vv.. .q old grudges aud grievances. Col. Jeunison's arrest at Leavenworth has aroused these elements, aud a determination was manifest ed to staud by him. Lt. Iloyt, of Jenni son's regiment, has also been arrested, and both placed in close confinement under a hated personal enemy. The free state men pat $4,000 at Jeuuisou's diposal to meet legal and personal expenses. This demon titration, bo7errLedto steps of precaution in spiriting him away, under cover of night, as wc have it on the authority of acorns pondent of the Tiibnne, to West an, and from there to St Louis, without seeing his foniily, or in any way providing fur hi ab sence. The same authority says, that the command of Col Montgomery has been-taken from him, onif he dismissed from the service. The same course has been pursu ed towards Col. Wecr, and John Brown, has teudered his resignation as captain of the company to which Lt. Iloyt belongs. .- In short, every prominent officer connect ed with the Kansas troops who has identi fied himself with the opposition to slavery, has been shoved aside aud humiliated by " Gens. Denver and Sturgis. It is not sur prising that the officers feel unwilling to serve, The Kansas regiments will be de moralized by these acts beyond redemption Is Col. Jennisoo's regiment there are be tureen twenty and thirty men who, with J e unison himself, have lain in the open fields and concealed in woods for days and weeks, to avoid the slavchonuds sent after them by Denver while Governor of Kansas.

The Rumob that Beauregard was evacu ating Corinth, with th probable design of making a more vigorous stand at Memphis, cai be viewed in ao other, light than as confession of weakness. H&iletk and Grant Lave pressed on for another engagement with comuieudable earoestnewan earnest' cess indicative ot confidence, frera both which movements the national cause pre gents an aspect of much encouragement. If the rumor is confirmed, w have no doubt that Gen. Halleck will accommodate him telf to Moos.

They were the wounded left in the field in the nffiir of the South Mills.

The Sec retary of War orders the masters off to Johnson Island, in Lake Eric, without their sluves. What disposition is to be made of the latter, does not oppeor.

The Iloase adopted a resolution censuring Mr. Cameron, by a vote of 70 to 4. There was some tall cannonading at Fort Wright on Monday and Tuesday last. From before Yorktown we had a report that one of our boats on Thursday com menced the shelling of Yorktown. SLe moved op to the mouth of Wormley's Creek daring the morning, opened a well- directed fire on their work, which was promptly answered by the rebel. Tl.C boat then fell bock a distance of three miles fiom Yorktown, when the again opened fire, the shells exploding each time within the enemy's works, but obtained no response.

Thero Is nothing In the Federal Constitu tion, that forbid i'urj cuiiucniiuu of ibe property of rebels to defray the heavy bur dens they have wantonly Ihrowu npon the country ; and we are amazed that loyal Members of the Congress should seem to admit thnt there is no power in the Gov ernment to confiscate absolutely and for ever. Wo who stand for the Union believe it has a right to exist that tho conspiracy and efforts to overthrow it by force and violence nre vrong. If we are beaten, we understand that the Rebel's triumph sup plies the needed justification of their revolt, and exempt them from penalties. But suppose they are beaten and forced to sub mit unconditionally to the Union : What then 7 Are the expenses of this costly, snngninary struggle to be born wholly by the loyal T Or shall the Rebels be required, so far as may be, to pay them T What is the Bnswer of justice and common sense r It is suggested by some Members or Con gress thut we must triumph before wo can confiscate. That is truo in a very nar row tne ; in a larger sense, it is false. The Rebel ranks are filled by conscription and terrorism. They confiscate ruthlessly; they strip every Linonist to tee skin, aud then they shoot or hang him if he docs not profecs to be converted to treason. Of their three or four hundred thousand raen now in their ranks to war nguinst the Union, full half are there because they have no alternotivo but death by violence or starva tion. Their armies are fed by systematic robbery; their currency moves on by virtue of the bayonets behind it : in short, they compel a unity of expression it not ol senti ment throughout the region nnucr their sway, aud then Feize whatever they need to sustain ond advance their cause. Their system 1ms all the fearful energy c4 the worst dnys or the French lleign of terror.

Thus there orc to-diiy not less than One Hundred Thuusnnd fiithtinz for the Rebellion whose judgments and hearts incline them to-the- siue of the Union; bnt they are still anxious to live, und they shun the most obvious and imminent peril. We would have Congress do- no'lling that the Humanity of the ngc will1 not fully approve ; but we fell that extreme tender ness toward willful, maliirnnnt Rebels is treason to the Republic. If the Govern ment Wmli much lontrer hesitate to deal sternly wiih flagrant Rehels, they ars-very likely to deal stcinly with the Government. Milk nnd honey nre excellent in their place; but they will not cure the cancer now gnawing at the vitals of the Republic.

Piobably before ibis letter reaches you the telegraph will have ft:ihcd over the land the iniclliganee of the downfall of the greatest rebel crty. The Great Gulf fleet has already passed the bur of the Mississip pi,, nnd is now before Forts Jackson ond Phillip, the grinning Cerberi which guard the entrance to the Hodcs of Sccesia. Sunday Morning, April 14, 1862. THE GREAT GULF FLEET. The fleet is a splendid one. The fl ig ship Hartford is the ocean home of Com modore Furrugut. After the Hartford came the sloops of-war Pensncoln, Richmond and Brooklyn, and the old vessel Mississip pi a veriiible old wur tea horse armed with heavier guns, borrowed fiom the Col orado. These vessels constitute a most fortuidubhs arm of assuult. They me prob ably provided with guns as no vessels were before ; besides tho usual complement o( 20 gnus, hoirilzers are placed in the tvp.i. Besides these there ore the Iroquois.Oneida, Verona, (of twelve gnus), Miami, and the sailing sloop-of war Portsmouth; which is towed by the Mssissippi. Then enme the gunboats Wi-siiliiehon, Winona, Owaskn,' Itaseo, riuoln, Kennebec, bcioto, Unyugn, Katahdin, and another whose uuuie at this minute I cannot recall. PORTER'S MORTAR FLEET. Porter has no less than 21 boom schooners lalen with death-dealing mortars imple ments of war, for one of which the leudirs of the old Spaniah would hove bartered any dozvn of their best vessels. These mortar schooners would, however, be very much like an umb.'xl.'a i'.hoal a handle, or a bow without a striinr. were it not for the three ferry boats Clifton WcstSeld and Jackson, which are doing the stato more service down hero than ever they did on the Staten Is land ron'c. They tow the Bluggi.su scliooiv res about, accelerating their motion to a de gree which quite oniuzes the heavy leaden craft, if they be scusible of umazeuieut. One of these furry boats cau tow two or three of the mortar vessels at a time. The mortar fleet is divided into three divisions,, known respectively as the Red, While and und Blue. The Harriet Line is Commodore Porter's Bag thip. PASSING THE BAR. The fleet entered the river by the South west Pass. There had been some intention of trviug to reach New Orloaus by way Lake Ponchartraiivbut the enemy became premature advised of tho plan and bo it was ubundoued.niid the Southwest Puss essayed. The wuler was so bhallow that tho larger vessels could uot pass, and the cannou, onchors and almost every movable article on board the Hartford, Pctisacola, Rich mond aud Brooklyn were transferred light schooners. The heuvy war vessels thus lightened sailed triumphantly over the bar and reshipped their aruiaincut luglicr up. The Colorado, being too heavy, was left outside. The passing of the bar occu pied some three weeks, the last vcsel cross ing only the day belore tho Connecticut sailed from the mouth of the Passes. In towing the Peusaeola over the bar sad uccideut occured. A hawser parted and io the recoil killed two men. Tho Ferry boats here again won all our hearts. They towed almost all the vessels over the baY, aud proved themselves quite as useful as they are ugly and ungaiuly. They were defended so far as to bo musket ball proof. CAPTURE OF PILOT TOWN. The first vessels which passed the took possession of the deserted village Pilot Town. The place wa deserted, the specious hotel was at once occupied our nurgeous, and fitted up as.a hospital. UP THE RIVER. As the fleet lay io the river coal the want of which delayed the some time Dicket vessels were sent two miles ahead to notify os if the rebels should send down burning rafts, or other unpleasant messengers. One day Dicket reported a rebel fleet of seven vessel comiugl dowu. A few Federal vessels gave chase, and the rebel steamers iook their heels, or rather to their (paddle) wheels. Five were soon out t sigDt beyond the forts, nnd the other just escap ed. The last, however, was not so lucky. Seeing our vessel gaining on them, laggard ran to shore, was set on nre deserted. She was a good iteed steamer. THE OBSTRUCTIONS. of had If we take Fprtt Phillip and Jackson there it a little lo prevent our fleet from eoinir directly un to tho city, as Fort it of no account. The rebels have stretched ft chala aoro-t I ha river below the forti. lt ia supported by four bark laden, cotton to avoid destruction. This chain a nuisance : but we - hone- that we tilence the torts first, and then cut the chain at oar leisure. Our men are all ready the conflict. ADDITIONAL PARTICULARS. 4 The rebel defense blow the city, eccord Ing to trustworthy Information in their pos session were very strong, and cculd not fail, If well served, to inflict vast injury npon onr vessels, if oi crijit cf them. Upon the two forts, (Fhillip,) more than two hundred guns were mounted, and batteries lined the banks of the Mississippi from Fort Jackson to New Orleans.- Besides, there were very formidable obstructions in the river, consiting of chains, stakes, and boats loaded and bound with cotton, moored in the river. On cii her side nnd abovo these obstructions batteries were erccinl, which could rake in n most destructive manner tho only passage through the stokes and boats. PREPARATIONS FOR A LAND ATTACK ON NEW ORLEANS. Preparations for a land attack on New Orleans, in t'Onhmclion with that of the fleet, ere made by General Butler, and the embarkation of troops from Ship Island, supposed to be for New Orleans, was in progress for several days before the Con necticut sailed. It was understood that these tioops would bo ti.ken through the Mississippi Sound lo a point ubore the principal rebel butteries, nnd coropcrate with the fleet when it should ascend to tho deignutel point. ORLEANS. From Pittsburg--April 28. The steamer Beacon left Pittsburg last evening, nnd has arrived. Gens. Halleck, line! and Grant have moved their head quarters near the front of our lines, per sonally superintending all details tending to the advance of the whole force, orders for which were hourly expected. Gen. Pope's division advanced four miles on Sunday, and are now encamped within sight of ti c enemy' camp fires. Rebel deserters who come in on Saturday had heard of the fall of New Orleuns, which, however, was contradicted by officers. Pickets occasionally exchange shots. The latest intelligence to-night reports our whole nrmy moving forword slowly. Contrabands tiud deserter who come with in our lines report previous statements (hut Coriuth is being evacuated. ORLEANS. From Pittsburg--April 28. Fort Wright.--April 28. From desericrs we leurn that New Oi lennn is now in Porter's quiet possession. The Federal fleet passed Fort Jackson Thursday after a desperate Naval engage ment, iu which one ves.-cl waa sunk and several badly damaged, lt is snpposed the Federal loss is very heavy The rebel lo.-s is 00 killed ond 100 wounded, l he engage ment lasted part of' two days. The Feder als took possession of the city without a struggle on Friday, the rebel force having evacuated after destroying steanieis they had no use for. They took with them a greater part cf the military stores in the eity. Union citiicns were very jubilant. The strength of Ft. Wright, as staled by iiitellLreul deserters, is 8,000 men under Yallipagiic, who has not been superseded, as reported, iney buve seven batteries, mounting 2G gnus. Army of the Potomac.—HEADQUARTERS, April 29 '62. The rebels are apparently just realizing that MeClellan is making great prepare tions to open n second Keige on lorktown. 0-ur earthworks present a very formidable appearance, nnd ull yesterday ond last night the enemy kept up a brisk tne on tnem trying to drive us out. Nobody wua in jured, aud the work progresses. 1 his morning the enemy opened a vig orous ft c for tlerc hours from batteries near the river, but received no response. Yesterday Gen. Hancock, with a portion of his brigade, was sent to drive the rebels from the woods near our works. Our troops poured iu well diiected Crc, causing them to retreat, leaving their uead ord wound ed.

All with whom they came in contact, high ond low , declared that of eventful success there was no doabt. luey hud won one great victory at Shiloh, and were sure of winning ouo at lorktown. C;ipt. Gamier of Oassendi said to a par ty of cQkers who were talking in this strain on the-steps of the hotels, "They've driven you out of Maryland, Kentucky, and Mis souri, and, by gtir, theyll drive you to the UVrf of Mexico," liut the Rebels only auched at him. The talk of tho womeu was, as ufuul, more boastful and vindicative han that of the nion. lliey were giving heir time and their jewels to the service the Rebellion, and were working all day for soldiers. Beniuiniii, in conversation with the French Minister, assured, hira that the blockade wai absolutely ineffective a mere paper blockude, which Europe should once declare null and void, liut, 6aid Mat cier, "how is it, then, that I see no tea, coffee, no wine on your tableb?

Lee told the l'reucn men that if Fort Jackson were taken, only protection which New-Orleans had coiifcisia of an iron-clad steam ram mounting 16 guns, and supplied with 0 engines and two propellers : and that another of same kind was on the stocks.
