SATURDAY MORNING, APRIL 2G, 1862.
OFFICIAL JOURNAL OF THE CITY.
The Circulation of the DAILY
APPEAL is Inrjfcr than that 01
the Daily City Press Combined.
With the lights Wore xu, we are no Jonper
enaWd to doabt the intelligence that Fort Jack
soa has fallen. The apparent embargo on the
telegraph between this city and New Orleans cf
itself, in our mind, was an omen of evil news,
and was, we presume, generally so regarded.
The latest intelligence our New Orleans ex
changes appear to have had from the scene of
actios was up to Wednesday morning the
same ooHttiued in the dispatches published by
The ramer is farther circulated that our fleet
of seven gvtfiheate, in attempting to resist the
advance of .the enemy's flotilla, was almost de
stroyed. No mention is made of the iron-clad
steamer Louisiana being engaged.
We learn that the enemy, at last accounts,
were at quarantine, forty miles below New Or
leans, fieri. L.OVKLL is stated to have made a
narrow escape irom being captured.
XII E BATTIK OF .iIllI,OII A FED
A correspondent of the Cincinnati Commer
cial, writing in regard to the battle of Shiloh,
asserts that " in one thing all are agreed that
the surprise by Beauregard was a piece of gen
eralship, conducted ou his part with the greatest
" Our men," he writes, " were not as well pre
pared as they shoaM have been that is tlie
lightest eritieism that can be applied in the prem
ises. The 70th, "1st, 43th, and 54th Oh'wregi
mente, which should have slept on arms on Sat
urday night having the advance were so un
prepared that many of the men were shot down
before they had an opportunity to leave their
tents. Te surprise was so complete tiiat these
regiments retreated from their camp without ma
king any resistance, although they rallied sub-
seqaently and fonght during the day .'
Thesame correspondent says that Gen JoilXS
ton's army was composed of the flower of the
South "men well uniformed, armed, and
equipped," and that they " showed themselves
good soldiers, and fought with desperation."
FROM NORTH ALABAMA.
The Federal force in North Alabama is esti
mated by those best advised at from ten to
elevee thousand men, of which about eight
thousand are said to be at Tuscumbia, and the
rest between that point and Hunteville. It is
stated that fie bridges that were burned along
the Meaphfc and Charleston railroad lice, by
our forces, are being rapidly rebuilt by the
enemy, they having impressed several hundred
slaves into service for that purpose.
We bear that the bridge over the Tennessee at
Florence was burned by a detachment of our
own cavalry. "The rumor was also current sev
eral days since in North Alabama that the Fed
erals were about to dispatch twelve hundred
cavalry in the direction of Tueealoeea, with the
view of releasing their prisoners, numbering
about 2300, now confined at that place.
Tosealeesa is only about one hundred and
twenty miles from Tuscumbia, and the road
could he easily traversed by cavalry in forty
eight hours. As the meaus of resistance to this
expedition, if it should be atte-rpted, are not for
midable, owing to the sparsenees of troops in
Weatern Alabama, would it not be well for our
authorities to place themselves in a position to
counteract rte execution. Since the recent auda
cious and startling attempt of the Lincoln emis
saries to, burn the bridges en the Georgia. State
road, we need not be surprised at their under
taking anything whatever.
FEDERAL NAVAL PREPARATIONS
ON THE 31ISSSNSIPPI.
The New York Herald of the 17th contains
the following dispatch from Washington:
The navy department hag Invited proposiuose, by
mull or trfcwr&oh. to the 30th init. at noon, with gen
eral Pf-cificatioo and plana, for the construction of one
or more gunboat, for the MMxrippi and gulf service,

It is one of the first duties of our command
ers in the West o keep posted upon the formi
dable preparations being made by the enemy to
redoee our fortifications o'n the Mississippi.
Their efbrts to accomplish thk end are vigorous
and determined, and our resistance must be of a
simBar character. Unless we bestir ourselves in
this work, the enemy will have complete control
of thk great " inland sea" from its mouth to its
source in leas than sixty dajs.
The Traitor. We find the following dis
pateh in a northern paper :
Washisotok, April 8,-Wm. H. Polk, of Tennessee,
who has nut arrived here, earaeeUy favors the parage
of a eoeSaeation bill by Congress. He expresses the
opinion that sack a measure would do more to make the
rebel statec loyal tbaa any other that eoald be adopted.
Tennessee was particularly fortunate in the
defeat of this traitor when caudidale for Gover
nor last summer against that true and tried
patriot, Isham G. Harris. If he had been
foisted upon us at that time, it would have ad
ded greatly to our present embarrassments.
Like his predecessor, Judas Iscarriot, he has
token occasion to betray in the hour of our ad
Tersity. Hon. Ismam G. Harris. We regret that an
extract from the Louisville Journal, containing
a gross and palpably-false libel upon the integ
rity of Governor Hams was inadvertently pub
lished m our issue of yesterday. The source
whenee it emanated was a sufficient evidence of
the meuioctty of ita assertions, and we are by
no meane to be eoaeidflfed as intending to attach
the least credit to the malieious slanders it con
tained. Few, if aoy , have a loftier opinion of the
high honor and the unimpeachable integrity of
Gov. Harris than ourselves.
Hon. J. D. C. Ajjkins. We were pleased to
meet this popular and efficient representative
from the ninth ooBgreswonal district in the city
yestmday. He is just from Richmond, and re
ports our government authorities and military
leaders m Virginia confident hi the success 'of
our arms and cause.

THE CONFEDERATE PRISONERS
AT CHICAGO. '
From the Chicago TrViunc of the 17th. we
learn that the total of deaths among the 'Con
federate prisoners confined at Cbtfago, up to
that date, was one hundred and ninety-nine.
On the ICth the following deaths occurred : Jas.
A. Cattrell, company C, 14th Mississippi; J. W.
Tinman, company B, 20th Mississippi ; Wm.
McLean, company A, 10th Tennessee; J. M.

Tabb, company C, 14th Mississippi. Tho Tri
bune thinks that the advent of warmer weather
is having a cheering effect upon the men, and
says that they oujoy every opportunity of "even
sunning themselves upon a board."
It is also stated that a prisoner named Riley,
of the 10th Tennessee, was shot on the 14th by
a sentinel, while attempting to run the guard.
He was challenged twice, upon which he started
to run, when the sentinel fired, the ball striking
him in the bock, passing through tho left lung
and out at the breast. He died in about ten
The TrAune adds :
Some little excitement was created on Tues
day by the arrival at tlie camp of Hon. Cave
Johnson, from Tonneasee, wlu came with a
pass from Major-General Halleck, which ol
course gained him admittance. His object, prin
cipally, in coming was to visit his son. though
he brought with him many letters and a con
siderable amount of money, in small sums, for
other prisoners, nis sou, wlo was among the
Fort Donelsou captives, is a fine looking young
man, about eighteen years of age, evidently
quite intelligent, and bat little cast down by
his present position. Indeed, ho talks secession
quite as strongly now as he ever did.
Plant Coun. From present appearances,
says tlie Vicksburg Whig, the waters of the
Mississippi will be higher this spring than it has
been for the past thirty years, and it bkls fair to
inundate all, or nearly all, the low lands in the
valley. If this should prove to be the case, the
hill country will have, to raise food for the inhab
itants of the country submerged, as well m t! e
balance of the Confederacy. Sometimos a tol
erable crop of corn can be made after tho water
falls but the crop is uncertain and cannot be
depended upon therefore it is absolutely neces
sary that every acre should be planted in corn
that is at all available. Do not put it off now

Special Corref pondence of the Appeal
T'CUMOND, April 15,
Thore is an almost breathless suspense in
this city in anticipation of the conflict at Yorktown.
That u battle must bt fought there within forty-eight
hours, upon a scale more tremendous than any yet lost
and won tn this unholy war, id the general conviction.
It seems well nigh oa imiwsible, Indeed, that two such
masses of men, inflamed with mutaal hatre.L hhould re
main for any length of time in hearing of each other's
sentries, without dashing against each otier in the rage
and furv of battle, as that, upon a sultry afternoon in
July, two black thunderclouds from opposing quarters of
the sky, charged with electricity, snouia come so near
together that their ragged edges should almost touch,
and there remain poised in the hot air for hours without
so much as a flash or lightning or a drop of rain coming
from their dark recesses. McClellan may not. Indeed,
JfMreuow to offer battle, but it is belieTed that Johni-ton
will compel bim to fight nolens rottns.
It U natural enough that an engagement, on the result
of which such momentous issues depend, ,-hould excite,
in the expectation of it, a very ep feeling of anxiety
in Richmond. Bat there is, also, confidence that the day
cannot go against us. If the enemy are greatly superior
to ns in numbers and in artillery, we enjoy some advan
tages over them. The army of McClellan is in excellent
drill and preparation, admirably armed and equipped,
and furnished with all tho enginery of destruction in ord
nance that modern science has contrived, but this army
is wholly untried, hui never been under fire, and is,
therefore, liable to be thrown at any moment into just
such a panic as seized npon the forces of McDowell on
the memorable i'lst of July. McClellan himself is so
conscious of this that the heavy skirmishing, which has
been going on for a week past, at Yorktown, has been
encouraged by him, doubtless with the view of getting
his troops accustomed to the rattling of the Iron hail.
Moreover, this grand army, which it has required eight
months to discipline and jierfect, is under the command
of a general who, however accomplished he may be in the
theory of war, and however distiuguifhed for jiersonal
courage, has his laurels yet to win as a military leader.
On the other band, the Confederate troops now in the
Peninsula may be regarded as veterans, w ithout any
flagrant misuse of that term as applied to soldiers of one
year's standing veterans who have been In many fights
and never been whipped they are the men of Bull
Run, of Manama, of Drainesville, of Lceburg, of Car
nifax Ferry, and of Alleghany Mountain familiar with
the music of the Minnie, and used to see the Yankees
flying in precipitation belore them and more than all
this, the battle-field oh which they are to meet the foe is
tie spot of all others on the American continent most
calculated to inspire men of southern blood flsbtuig for
all that is held dear upon earth, to deeds of immortal
valor. But all this speculation as to the combatants may
be rendered idle, perhaps even fnlsifled by the result,
before you read it The issue is in the hands of God ;
He disposed of the weightiest as of the lightest matters
of earth, and giveth the victory to the weak or to the
The conscription bill passed the House of Representa
tives yesterday and was signed, so it is slated, by the Pres
ident to-day. It Is therefore the law or the land. The
succeis of the measure has been hailed with transport
of enthusiasm by the oflicersof the army, who declare
that it has saved the republic Out of the military ser
vice, however, there have been very solemn regrets ex
pressed by thinking men at what they consldxr a stretch
of the Constitution and an infringement of State rights,
ominous of future troubles. But these very men bow
with sorrow to the necessity which constrains such ac
tion, accupt it as the onlv means of present salvation,
and look to a coming, correction when this tyranny of
circumstance shall be overpast.
The flag committee will report to-morrow, and I en
close the design which has received their sanction.
Your compositoi succeeded m well in giving the device
of Col l'ryor's favorite flag, which I sent you some time
ago, that I feel quite sure he will be ab'e to di-play it in
the columns of the Appeal. I will endeavor, however,
to describe it : A golden sun, with thirteen rays, to de
note the State, on a blue union in a red field, the field
traversed, from comer to corner, or, as they say in her
aldry, $altire-Kue, by a white cross. The objection to
the flag, as it seems to me, is its want of simplicity. The
flag would have leu much better, I think, without the
cross, that is to say, a golden sun on a blue union in a
red field -, but as this design wai submitted to the com
mittee by your correspondent, his opinion may not be
considered altogether disinterested. The flag chosen was
not the offering of any one candidate for the honors of
the authorship of the national emblem, but was the re
sult of combining the sal tire cross of Gen. Johnston's
battle flag with the original design of " Dixie." So far
"Dixie" is immortalized. A large copy of the flag has
been made ;a bunting, and should the report of the com
mittee be adopted by Congress will float over the capitol
We have intelligence to day that four Yankee gun
boats have ascended the Rappahannock river as high as
Tappahasnoek in the county of Essex. We have had
no defeases on thh bold stream other than a small innd
work known as Fort Lowry, whieb wa pronounced un
tenable and abandoned last week. 'Whether th guns were
removed or thrown Into the river, or left to fall into the
enemv'a hands I am not Informed. 'Why the Rappa
fcmnock should have been left so defenceless, the Secre
tary of the Navy must answer. The press has been com
pelled to lemain silent on the subject for fear of inviting
the Yankees to approach Richmond In this way. We
do net hear that any attempt has been made to land a
body f tr-iops. The village of Tappaliannock will
probably be shelled by the gunboats, and they will no
doubt send marauding parties ashore to plunder private
mansions, ol which there are many along the banks of

Editors Appeal : Major Lovo, of tho 27th
Tennessee regiment, i not dead as reported, or was not
afew days ago, at which time he was lying dangerously,
and probably fatally, wounded, a prisoner in the hands
of the enemy at FdducaU. Major Love, upon the fall of
Cel. Williams in the battle of Sunday, the 6th Lieut.
CoL Brown having been previously wounded and
disabled took command of the regiment and fought gal
lantly through the balance of the day, and on Monday
until late in the day. when he ML far within the enemy's
lines, very badly wounded, and was reported among the
killed, having had the third hone shot under him. His
left arm was shattered by a ball, and has been ampu
tated ; the first finger of his rigfet hand whs also shot off
but his most dangerous, and perhaps fatal wound was re
ceived in the side of the neck and bead. Thus wounded.
Maior Love lay upon tlie field of bat'le during the dreu
ing rains of Monday night and until late in the evening oi
Tuesday, where be was taken by the enemy to their
transports and thence conveyed to Paduoh, but he re
ceived no other attention, nor were his wounds dressed
until Thursday night following, after his arrival at that
place. He has many friends at Padueab, we learn, who
would glad y afford him every attention and comfort his
extremely (.sinful condition requires, bnt they are not
jiermitted to do anything for bim, and are ven grossly
insulted for manifesting sympathy fur his misfortunes.
One noble woman, a connection of bis, sueseeded, we
learn, after several days of perseverance and entreaty, in
obtaining permission to see him ; but she was shocked at
the condition in which she found him destitute not only
of every comfort, but of almost everything necessary.
After much difficulty she was permitted to mitigate in
some degree his miserable situation.
Major Love is a brave soldier, a noble and kind-hearted
gentleman, and deserves better treatment at the hands of
even a savage fo". He was a lieutenant of Capt. Hum
phrey's couipaDy in toL Trousdale's regiment la Mexico,
and fought gallantly in the four battles of Cerro Gordo,
Gerritta Belen, Contreras and Chembuseo. We sincere
ly hoje he may recover and b restored to his country
and his friends.

at Corinth, but was turned back at Stevenson by
the intelligence that the Federate had jwasession
of Huntsville, and had cut off the railroad com
munication with Corinth. Mr. P. informs us
that he had a conversation with an engineer who
succeeded in running the gauntlet, and who
gave him the following statement:
He said that early on Friday morning he
came up the road to Decatur, that on arriving at
Huntsville he found tne leiegrapn operant u
waiting, who threw his aparatus on board, and
informed him that the Federalists were just com
ing into the town. The engineer then started
his traiu, but before getting' through the town,
ho was fired upon by the Federal force and a
shell was also hred at tlie train, but did not suc
ceed in hitting it. His brother, also an engi
neer, was jiwt behind him, with a long train of"
empty cars, which was returning from carrying
troops to Corinth.
The Federal infantry fired a volley into the cab
on the engine and it was suppose' killed the en
gineer as the train was stopped, and had not
been heard from at Stevenson.
The Federal force could not he ascertained,
tut consisted of cavalry, infantry and one piece
of artiilery. They have possession of the city
and have effectually cut off all communications
by that route. Tlie 5th Georgia regiment bad
passed over the road a short time previous and
were all safely beyond Huntsville, except some
few who wore detailed to bring on baggtige.
Passengers by the Georgia railroad, last night,

eleven thousand Federal troops. Two locomo

to reinforce Beanregard, were captured. Augus

On Saturday morning another 15-inch Rodman
gun was cast at the Fort Pitt Works. We have already
given the detalis of casting these hoge pieces of ordnance,
and need not here repeat them. The rough ca-tiBg in the
pit weighs about 7K00U pounds and nearly forty ton, of
metal were melted for the purpose iu three furnaces. The
furnaces were fired abont five o'clock, and at eight
minutes past ten the first furnace was " tapped." A line
of troughs, or ' runners," bad been laid from the farthest
furnace, some eighty feet, the second furnace, about mid
way, joining in, and the two streams emptying, with
that from the first furnace, into a large cauldron at the
edge of the pit, from which two streams diverged, and.
passing arftun I the ptt, emptied into the gun on opposite
sides of the corn baneL The furnaces were tapped in
succession, and nearly all ttie metal a'towed to run out
before the next in order was pened. At twenty four
minutes past ten the mould was filled in just sixteen
minutes from the opening of the first fnrnace, showing
that the metal must have poured iato it at the rate of
nearly two and a half tons per minute.
This Is the third successful casting made -of 13-inch
gnns, and the work, will soon be regarded as an every
day performance, each successive casting having been
made with less trouble than toe preceding one. 1 oe gun
