What of the Times? Most cheering ! ,:Day unto day ut tereih fpeech." Rebellion totters. All the indications now are that the Gov ernment is in the fairest possible way to destroy the enemies of the Constitution. Our armies-are moving with steady tread into the enemies country, and thus af fording an an opportunity to the loyal element to manifest itself. In no instance hare we been disappointed in finding" a. loyal people in tho seceeded States. The Sun of the Union, which seemed to be setting in blood, proves to be rising, and 'the ruby streaks that stream the hori zon, but presage the dawning of a more glorious day." The doubts that the Prov idence .of God would be accomplished has sunk down in the storm is passing away. The Union will emerge from this conflict stronger, and more firmly estab lished, and we may yet look forward to centuries of peace and prosperty. A Kentucky paper, since the captures cf Ft. Henry and Ft. Donelson, in speak ing as to whether there is a Union feel- i ing South, says : "The question as to whether there is a Union feeling vt not at the South has been efTectually settled by the enthusiasm which welcomed the old flag, in the recent punboat expedition as far as Alabama. The assertions so strenuously denied by rebels and Abolitionists are settled. This feeling is of vital importance to cherish, and we rejoice at the honorable and soldier-like manner in which the Union men in the sections passed through were trea ted. What is most necessary to estab lish this loyal feeling, is the pretence of a sufficiently strong force to protect the citizens: . TLis done, the Southern peo ple will themselves re-establish the Uni on. It is to 'them, finally, the question must- fall. Make them free, and the question is settled. State afterState will resume its functions under the Constitu tion, and the Union be stronger than ev er. From the storm of battle, and the darkness that has lowered about us, the Great Republic will appear mightier than r c . j ever, xjci urraness, lerapereu wnn gen tleness govern our course, and the work of our armies will bexomparatively light." Yes, "Let firmness be tempered with gentleness." While we have no patience with, or semblance of charity for North ern traitors, and sj'mpathizers for the re bellion for they know belter, and have no possible excuse, save downright trea son we have believed at all times, and yet believe, that the greatest kindness and charity should be extended the masses in the seceeded States. The Southern ar mies are principally made up of young men who have heen led astray by design ing arch-traitors, and if leniency be no?: extended to them will cheerfully return, prodigal like, to their Father's house. But the leaders! Let them suffer the Constitutional penalties provided for trea son! or like outcasts, let them seek some desolate foreign clime, and there close a life replete with infamy. The Plattsmouthcity papers state that there is much suffering among the wives and families of soldiers of Company A. First Nebraska Regiment residing there. Such is the case in this city many fam ilies of soldiers have come to eqtrerae want, notwithstanding they have been the subjects of relief cn several occasions by our liberal and patriotic city Council. We learn by correspondents and dher w'se, that suffering, want and destitution bordering on starvation, exists generally among the wives and families cf the Ne braska Regiment. A'elraskian. We are sorry to hear that any point in Nebraska the families of our brave soldiers are allowed to want the necessa ries and comforts of life. NcmaLa County sen, more cf her actual residents to the war than any other County in Nebraska, and not a single family or individual has been allowed to suffer for want of any thing. We can but think that the JVc braskian has "ovorshot the mark," in making such a positive and sweeping as sertion as the above. An exchange says: "The rebels are finding a new way to exhaust our resources. Their armies surrender as prisoners of war, and have to be supported by the Government." It is to be hoped that rebel sympathizers in the loyal States, who have heretofore exhibited so much concern for the rebel lion as to furnish "aid and comfort," will not now discontinue their "kind offices." We trust they will be given a gentle hint to contribute. The Advertiser has been selected by the State Dep't, Washington, as one cf the pa pers in Nebraska, in which the acts, res lutions, and orders, except such as are of a private nature, passed during the Sec ond Session of the 31st Congress shall be published. Next week we will com mence their publication. Now is a good lime to commence "taking the paper." A complete file of the laws passed by Congress can be thus obtained. We expec ted by this time to have re ceived a letter from our regular army Correspondent, who was in th.3 Ft. Don elson battle, but have been disappointed. We have learned that one man out of the Nemaha county Company was killed ; but did not learn his name. ..Relief or Soldiees. The Demo cratic Constitutional Convention of Illi nois appropriated a half a million dollars for- the relief of families of soldiers, and for the relief of those of the volun teers of the Stale who maybe wounded in battle, or prostrated by the diseases of the camp. The Republican Legislature of Nebraska refused to grant a single cent for the purpose, and also refused the German and Irish soldiers the poor re lief of a vote of thanks. A'cbraskian, ' It's all bosh' to be charging the defeat of that measure upon the Republican or any other party. It was not a party question. Nor were party lines drawn in the last Legislature. The vote on ' he defeat of the bill for the relief of our brave soldiers was as nearly as equal ly divided between those calling them selves Democrats and Republicans as could well be. We think it was a burn ing shame that the Legislature failed to pass the bill, and are prepared to censure those who roted against it as tharply as any one else, and yet we consider it all torn-foolery" to be endeavoring to make political. capital out of it. Its "far fetch ed," Mr. Nebraskian. On Thursday last Gen. Hilleck sent a dispatch to Gen. McClellan, stating that Cassville was taken with supplies enough to last the army twenty days. It would be occupied by Gen. C. F. Smith's division. The dipatch also stated that Price, having been reinforced by McCulloch's command, made a stand at ISugar Creek Crossing, in Arkansas, on the 18th, but was defeated after a' short engagement, and again fled. Many prisoners were taken and arms which his men had thrown away in their flight. The St. Louis Democrat of the 20th says: from private advices received, we are inclined to the belief that the report ed evacuation of Columbus is founded in fact. Preparations will undoubtedly be made for an immediate advance upon Memphis and New Orleans. Railroad Bridge - Burned in Ala. . A Union Scout, whose " headquarters i?. in St. Louis, arrived there last week from a trip to the South, with intelligence that one span of the Memphis and Charl ston Railroad bridge at Decatur, Alaba ma, was burned by Union Sympathizers on the 12th inst. : ! He adds that the bridge further east, cn the Fame read, was to be disabled at the same time. . Artemas Ward once said 'public speak ing is not my forte." The rebels can cow say the same in regard to Ft. Donelson.- ' An exchange asks the question "why .some proposal is not made to the South . ern States ?" We "popped the question" to them at Port Royal, Roanoke, Mill Springs. Ft. Henry, and Fort Donelson. Perhaps they'll "ask my Pa," soon. Floyd dayed a regular "snipe hunting fame on J3uckner and Johnson at Fcrt Donelson. He set them to work holding the lag, and thPn slipped off. ABJIY CORRESPONDENCE. Ft. Hexbt, Tenn., Feb. 12. ' R. W. Fukxas Jlly Bear Sir: I am really in "Dixie," and I realize it in full. This is a beautiful spring-like day, warm and delightful. The trees are not in bloom, neither do I hear the robbih sing, but all seems cheerful and happy. About 20,000 troops are said to have left here since last Sundown for Ft. Don elson 12 miles east of thi3. It is be lieved there are 20 or 30,000 more here. All are anxious to go. The Nebraska infantry came here last night on a boat, but were ordered to go around by the River to Ft. Donelson, and are probably nearly there before this. . We were all surprised at the extent of the entrenchments here. They extend nearly all around for a mile in all di rections from the fort. The scene in and out of the fort is worth a respecta ble pilgrimage to see. Five o'clock, p. m. The Quarter master and myself took a ride around the intrenchments, and among the Mcit- ...... i ies of tents," which are in every di rection from the fort on this side ahe river. There are a great many tents on the other side of the of the river. Among objects of interest at the Fort, which is only a breast work of earth, with tren ches all around, angles, Corners arid tri angles, magazines, log-cabins, cannons some . mounted, one rifled all burst in pieces, shot, shell, grape, canister, &.c. A flag-staff, having had a cannon ball shot through it at the cross-trees, stood leaning over nearly rea3y to fall ;' while through the surrounding woods are found enough shot and shell, round and coni cal, on the earth, and some burned as they stuck, making,- in some instances, holes large enough to bury a man. Some burst, and tho fragments are scattered in rvery direction, leaviag.evidehces on the" trees of their beligerent propensi ties. Fid. 14. About half our-men have gone over to Ft. Donelson, and in all directions to intercept any secesh troops who . may attempt to escape. The bal ance of us are loading boats with pro visions found here after the capture. They are being'sent around by the river to Fort Donelson, for our troops. We are ready to jump into our saddles to go to the rescue, or join the chase, as cir cumstances require. 10, a. m. -Cannon are heard in the direction of the Cumberland, and we are all waiting to mount and join in the fight if we can get a chance, which seems to be all that is feared. - - - . Feb. 14. The troops have been fight in at Ft., Donelson since I wrote, the above. We have heard the cannon dis -tinctly for most of ' the day. From 10 to 2 they roared to ki!L Other cannon left here for Fort Donelson to-day, also two regiments of infantry. There were four or five companies of Secesh cavalry thre sterling the camp yesterday, on this side of-the river; and we were sent to engage them, but have just got here, and are laying on a steam boat. at the landing, about three miles above Ft. Henry, on the Kentucky side of the river. It being late, we shall not go on shore until morning, and may then return or not, as circumstances demand. This is a brisk place. All are on the move. You will have some idea of the fortifications here Ft. Henry when I tell you that the entrenchments and breastworks are seven miles in extent. The contest at Ft. Donelson is a se vere one, and we are now in doubt as to the result if there is any . result at all. All seem to feel confident of the success of our troops, but expect we shall sus tain considerable loss. . Our men are fighting . with a coolness, and courage which is gaining them many laurels. Our own regiment feels provoked to think it has no chance to join in the en gagement. . But they are begining to believe they will yet have a chance some where. The battle at Ft. Donelson is believed to be the most bloody, and hardest con tested since the war commenced. You will probably have all the particulars be fore long; ' Stowell Uhion Demonstration at Rock Port, Mo.

S.o far as we have been informed, and we have taken pains to gather informa tion, the cultivation of Sorghum in Ne braska, Kansas, Northern Missouri and Southern Iowa, proved an entire success the past season. Experiments the com- in-" season, will, we have no doalt, be still more satisfactory. Dr. Mokell, the Secretary of the .Nebraska Territorial Society, who is a thoroughgoing man in such. matters, is anxious to gather aJ in formation possible on this subject, and has issued the following circular: To the Farmers of Nebraska. Omaha, Jan 30, 1S62. The undersigned respectfully requests that the farmers of Nebraska who have raised sorghum, and manufactured either su?ar or svrun. will inform him of the result of their experience during the year.

The cultivation of Cottou in the North will attract the attention of many the coming season. We have no doubts as to the success of the Green Seed Cotton. Nebraska may be too far north for suc cessful cultivation, yet nothing will be lost by giving it afair trial. For two years past we have raised in our garden, in this place, a few stalks, merely for curiosity, which matured well, and has been pro nounced by those from cotton growing States a very fair article. U. S. Patent Office, ) Washington, Jan. 15, 1S62. .The cultivation of cotton in the milder portions of the free States is beginning to attract general attention. . , ;To prevent failures in its cultivation it is proper to remark that it is a princi ple in vegetable physiology that tropical plants can never be acclimated except by a repeated reproduction of new varieties from seed. The attempt to grow Sea Island cotton such as is now brought from Hilton Head would prove a failure in any portion of the Free States. The only variety ca pable of cultivation in those sections now seeking its . introductien is the "green seed'.' such as is now being raised exten sively in Arkansas, Missouri, Tennesse, and portions of 'Kentucky, and 'which produces tho white fibre. Seed should be obtained from these localities. The modifications of soil'and climate will in fluence the size of the plantl the length and fineness of the fibre, and ihe pro duct of the. crop. No . reasonable doubt is entertained of the success of the cul ture in all mild portions of the middle States, and efforts are now making by this division to procure the proper seed for distribution. - Sorghum. The results of the culti vation of Sorghum the past year settles the question of its entire practical suc cess. The value of its product is now counted by millions, and it cultivation is becoming a subject of absorbing interest. One of the-difficulties presenting it self is' the want of pure seed. To meet this want this division has ordered eeed from France for distribution the ensuing spring.- It must be borne in mind, how ever, that the same causes which have produced deterioration here exists there, and well grounded appreh&nsious are en tertained that the seeds thus imported may not b- free from suspicion.. Farmers interested should procure seed from among themselves when it is pos sible, as the season is so far advanced that .direct importations from Africa or China would be impracticable. ? t J B. P.

Flag officer Foot and Gen. Cullum being in command. At Fort Jefferson the gunboats and mortar boats took the lead, followed by the transports. . At ten o'clock ?a gun was heard at Columbus, which was soon followed by two others. . Half ; an hour afterwards another gun was heard. In coming into Lucas Bend steam was shut off and the boats allowed to float down. It was ascertained that the rebels had seized all the flatboats and skiffs as far as they dared to go; also that there had been a movement of troops at Columbus, but whether reinforcements had arrived was not learned. The gun and mortar boats were getting into position on the Missouri side, when a rebel steamer with a white flag made its appearance. Our boats had not fired a shot, and waited until the rebel boat got to a proper distance, when an . officer boarded her and the rebel officers came on board the Cincinnatti, flag ship, and a consultation tooh place, lasting over two hours. The result has not been made known The expedition has returned to Cairo. Many rebel mounted pickets were seen on the way down, who fled toward Co lumbus. . '. . A late Memphis paper acknowledges the defeat at Fort Donelson, but says that Gen. Pillow will make a stand at Clarksville. It admits the rebel loss in killed and wounded to be 500, and says they were surrounded by 70,000 federals. The paper admits that the burning of Memphis would probably become a mili tary necessity.

Cu Board Steamer White Ccoud, ) ' Cumberland River, Feb. 17, 1302. J Editors .Missouri Democrat : Our reg iment came from St. Louis in the "White Cloud." We reached Fort Henry 11th, and wero immediately sent round to Fort Donelson. Col. J. M. Thayer, our gal lant commandant, was placed in charge of the whole fleet of transports, consisting of twelve steamers, filled with troops. He turned back all the steamers going to "Fort Henry," and reached Paducah early next morning, where we were joined by six gun boats, under command of Commodore root, .Leaving raducah about 8 p. m., 12th inst., we eteamed slowly up the swollen Cumberland, and a more glorious or heart-stirring sight was seldom witnessed than our splendid fleet, with gay and loyal colors floating and music playing, while the welkin rang the wild huzzahs of the lusty fellows on board. We reached within two miles of Donel son on the night of the 13th, and landed next morning but what a change had come over the scene. All the way up the Tennessee, and round again up the Cumberlan, the weather had been balmy and spring-like : but on the morning of the'l4th the whole country was covered with snow and the weather colzas Green land. About two o'clock p. m., the brig ading of the troops wa3 completed, and awav we tramped to the scene strife for already had the battle commenced, Gen Grant having tpened fire upon the rebel entrenchments the day bafore. , On reaching the ground in the rear of the fort our regiment was placed in the division of Gen. Wallace, and the brigade of which it constituted the senior and first regiment, was placed under command of Col. Thayer. Cheer upon cheer greeted us as we double-quicked past the dens: masses of loyal hearts drawn up on tha left and centre of our army, while we hurried on to take position at the post cf honor on the rifrht. The gunboats had already opened fire, and the loud boom inr of the uns seemed to exhilerate our men as they reverberated over the bro ken country. That night we bivouacked, and early next morning we heard firing in the direction of Gen. McClernand's division. Soon the report came that the rebels had driven back McCIernand's forces and captured one of his batteries. With that report came a command for us to march to the front, and away we wen double quick and eager for the fray. On the way we met the caissions of Swartz's .battery, all that was left of it, the rebels having charged and taken the guns and pell mell came some cf our discomfitted troops running from the ene my, while we were running to mee them. Gen. Wallace filed us into line of battle, placing three guns cf the Chicago battery on our left, and just as our line was formed, on came the enemy, flushed wiih the victory over McCIernand's troops ; bang, bang, went the guns of our battery, and then came our turn, and to it we fell with a will. We were ordered to kneel and fire and down went the front ranks of the enemy. Stajrjered and surprised, they fell back in disorder, but rallying again, and bringing up a battery to bear ch us, they tride it again, and never in my life, although I have seen several battles, did I witness more terrific firing, or more gallant conduct than was then shown by the glorious First aree with your general health '?

Buckner's complaint cf the "ungenerous and unchiv alrous" terms accorded his 15,000 rebels by Gen. Grant, is enough to raise a broad grin on a horse block. Gen. Back r.er had opened a correspondence by pro posing an armistice till noon, with a view to arranging terms of capitulation, know ing well that nocn might see General Bishop Polk's army from Columbus, or Albert Johnson's from Bowlinsr Green on hand. "You must surrender uncondi tionally and at once, or I go in again," Fays in substance Gen Grant. ''Well, if I must I must," responds the doleful Si mon; "but it is very ungenerous and un- chivalrous in you to expect such course it was condi tions." Of course it was: but what could you expect from a Yankee "mud sill" at the head of an army of that sort? If the rebels insist on chivalry in their opponents, they should fight each other wV i Y.

' And again confounded the ene my fell back, but with courage of desper ation they assailed our position once more, and again the terrible fire rolled forth, whilst our battery thundered des truction among them ; and this time, nearly all their officers being killed or wounded, the enemy beat a precipitate retreat, leaving us victors of the field for the day. . It is no ordinary compliment to pay a regiment unaersuch circumstances to say that it behaved like veteran troops, and when I tell you that two regiments of raw troops posted in our rear below, be longing to our brigade actually fired into us under the wild excitement of the scene, you will scarcely deny us the claim of veteran steadiness. Bullets, grape and shell pouring upon us from the enemy, and our troops firing in our rear was putting us in rather an awkward position; but discipline told in the trying moment, and the First .Nebraska stood their ground, and with the help of their bat tery our regiment alone repulsed the whole force which drove Gen. McCIer nand's troops from their position. So gallant was the bearing our regiment that Gen. Wallace in person complimen ted the men upon the field, telling them they had done nobly indeed. Our share in this siege I have now told you. It lasted just forty-five min utes, and yesterday the Lieutenant Col onel of the Fourteenth Mississippi regi ment told me we had killed and wounded over three hundred of his men, while the other three regiments which formed their column of attach, suffered in proportion. Our casualties were small two killed, two wounded, and seven slightly woun-. ded, is the sum of ojr loss. I cannot state the aggregate loss of the Union forces. I should judge, however, that 400 killed, ,and . perhaps S00 wounded would cover all during the siege. The rebel loss is probably about 1,200 killed, and 2,000 wounded; I visited the ground occupied by the troops which attacked the First Nebraska regiment, and coun ted eighteen dead in a space of fifty feet square. The trees and brush were literally girdled by our bullets, and the marks ranged from two to six feet from the ground. Better fighting I never wit nessed. I saw two dead officers among the slain, Poor fellows, peace to their ashe3. Our regiment goes over to Fort Henry by land to day. I will write you again.
