Chicago tribune.
MONDAY, ATF.IL 18. 1801.
THE NEWS,
The certain falli upon the Vort Pillow
•tragedy by tbe official announcement that
the rebels, after killing fifty-three and
wounding one bnndred white troops, mur
dering three hundred black troops in cold
blood, completely, demolished the works and
destroying the town, have at last withdrawn
to renew their merciless bntcherlea at some
other point But we trust there is to be a
acqucl to this tragedy. The matter la before
Congress and in both Houses hat been re
.ferred to the Committee on of
"the' War, with instructions to investigate im
mediately. The country will not brook any
• delay in the matter. The horrors of Fort
Pillow must be avenged, and the rebels must
be taught a lesson that they will long remem
ber.
CapL 1 Woodruff of the 113 th ILL, denies
that os the steamer Platte Valley he lionized,
and draak with the wretch Chalmers, red
handed from the Fort Pillow massacre. Sev
•cral correspondents unite in charging upon
<Japt 'Woodruff that be did. Such is our ab
horrence of a course so unbecoming a Fede
ral officer, that we cannot taka it upon our
aelros to defend Capt Woodruff on his own
atatementfi. He must clear himself of a charge
of which we hope he is not guilty, but which
we pledge our exertions to make costly and
ignominious to any one convicted thereof
Fur more honorable for a Clflon officer to
have shared the grave of the hapless blocks,
than to meet with honeyed fionkcylsms the
ferocious slayer of unarmed and defenseless
men. Nothing hnt a most careful and formal
investigation will materially relieve Capt.
Woodruff
The conductors of the Chicago arc
atadioufily careful in estimates of distances,
’They aim to be just near enough the Jeff
Davis organ in this city to put in a grab for
a share ol whatever spoils may full to his lot,
and just far enough off to escape being hit,
in case begets knocked over. The sheet is
not-a-very safe post for loyal men to tie to,
frirlilfi being continually palled np and set
.anew, quite often in very doubtful localities.
It hates Jeff. Davis, bat we are not sure that,
about the time. Storey got clear Into Rich
mond, Sheahan would not be just outside
-tbe limits. That is certainly about the role
tbe 2hgt Is placing in the present election.
■ Advices from the Army of tbe Potomac all
point to a speedy resumption of active ser-
Tices. Sullen and citizens have gone home
nntil fall, and nobody regrets their departure.
Tbe little village of Metropolis on the Ohio
Elver is in a state of great excitement and
alarm over the bands of guerilla cut-throats
who arc ranging the Kentucky border oppo
site, bent on conscription and plunder. Oar
gunboats ore vigilantly patrolling the rirsr,
however, and transportation of every kind
bos been removed or destroyed, so that a
-visit of these cut-throats to Illinois,however
pleasant it might be to the Egyptian Copper
heads of the O’Hair stripe, is likely to be
.prevented.
The Senate has nobly done Its duty in pass
ing Sherman's gold bill; or, in other words, a
bill against gold gambling.
The Copperheads are again sent to tbe wall
in Ohio by a decision of the Supreme Court,
pronouncing the law allowing soldiers to
Tote, constitutional. There is no rest for
-Copperheads in Ohio. '
The report of tbe postponement of the
draft is pronounced a canard, and thus we
-ire delivered from another danger.
• AFrenchwarvcsselhavingabarkintowhae
gone up the James Elver to bring awaj from
Elchmond a lot of tobacco belonging to tbe
French Government. Judging from the tone
of the Richmond papers, it Is not by any
means certain that Napoleon will get his to-
Dacco, especially as he is shutting up tbe
rebel his ports.
THE CITY ELECTIOxY.
But 6se working dayraorc will elapse and
the people of Chicago will hare to express
*■ their preference at the polls for the men wbo
ehall hold the reins of power in oar muni
cipal government doting the coming official
jear. “While there may be no ►central rally
ing point in case of this election, as the
present Mayor holds over for another year, it
i b none thoJess fraught with the utmost im?
portonce, and no less essential to the inter
ests of the city, that the Union party shall
be triumphant, and Union men hare tbe
power. That can easily be doue*V every
man docs his duty. There is a clear hand
-some Union majority in the city, and If we
zirc beaten again, it will be through tbe ut
most criminal snplncness and indifference of
Union men, or the no less criminal qnarrels
among ourselves. “We hope that the experi
ence of last year is sufficient to impress upon
them the importance of a change of ad
niinistaation. Op„en corruption and secret
corruption practiced in places where
the avenues of legal detection are concealed
has been nnhlushingly practised. Officehold
ers have fattened upon tbe spoils and grown
suddenly rich. Tax payers have euffared from
•enormous extortion. The expenses of the
city have been swelled to unreasonable fig
ures to create a fund for the support of the
•coppcihead party. More money has been paid
to thcChlcago Time* than to all the Bepubli
•can papers combined, since the Dyer admin
istration, without which it would long ago
liave ceased to exist Loyal man have been
•obliged to pay their money io sup
port that pestilent sheet Loyal men are
the proj>erty owners of this city, and upon
them the burthen of the tax has come. They
have been obliged <b keepopen this fsuntUn,
from which streams of treason have flowed
.all over the West and culminated in opposi
tion to the Government, and the,murder of
Its soldiers and officials.
- is mere not a pressing need for a change ?
iso Administration will stow tneb » black
record of corruption as that wbicbweboge
to 6CC partially at an todneitTnesdiy. Tax
ation has been increased from twelve mills on
a dollar virtually to twenty four. The School
Food has been squandered, amfwooden piles,,
'•scarcely able to write their names, placed
upon tbe Board of School Inspectors, Tbe
Contingent Fund bas gone into tbe pockets
of Incompetent officials. The streets, side
walks, alleys and by-ways of tbe city have
been utterly neglected, #td as a consequence
.disease lias epread tjirougb tbe city aslt never
did before, unless in pestilentlsl seasons.
Tbe city is defendsnt in hundreds of suits in
•our courts, through their dishonesty. They
have involved onr citizens in legal difficulties
by Illegal special assessment*. Not a single
measure tending towards the improvement
or future good of the city, has becn_ ordered
by them, unless by so doing they could pot
money in their pockets. This extortion and
corruption must be stopped, and caaheby
throwing a Union majority into the Common
'Council and thus rendering the Copper
heads knaves powerless for further mis
chief. The officials who are forced upon ns
.for another year must hare & watch placed
• upon them unless our citizens wish the city l
bankrupted. This cA be done by sending
to the Alderronnlc Chamber the men who
hare been placed In nomination upon the
Union ticket • They are well known citizens,
of unblemished Integrity and unquestioned
loyalty. Let every Union citizen be np and
-doing.
Bnt, above all, we warn onr friends of the
'insane folly of internal dissensions in certain
strong Republican wards. It independent
candidates are ran, the Copperheads wUfesllp
their men in between them and the regular
nomination as surely as the sun will rise.
Heal these differences and close np the ranks.
Do not prejudice the cause or expose the
party to defeat, for the sake of persons! ani
mosity and ambition. Sacrifice everything
to success. If an Independent candidate by
running Kill e»uee the loss of a single vote,
or dangerously divide the party, lei him
decline before it Is too late, and
give his influence to the regular
nominee. IV In these strong Ecpnblieaa
wards vre are defeated by these divisions, the
men who have caused them frill be held to a
strict accountability, and will bo marked out
and followed by the Indignant maledictions
of every Union man In those wards. We
warn th em of the consequences of their folly,
finch action, entailing as It were, probable
defeat Is little short of madness, and isrir
tunllvahase surrenderor onr banner wards
Copperheads. Bally to the ticket as
one man, mid present an unbroken front to
the enemy on the day of/eleeUon. From aU
around ni corns .the. glad tidings of Union
victories. Let Chicago next Tuesday add to
the list one of her old-Cwhioned, unmlßtflk
.able Union majorities.

yuan.
Cairo, April 16,6. m.
The steamer Glendale, the first boat from below
•lace the temporary blockade, has jo? I arrived from
Memphis. Her officers say that no obstructions by
tbe rebels exist between this place and Memphis.
The rebels evacuated Fort PIUow attar destroying
everything destructible which seemed to distin
guish it as a military post. They burned every
building and remnant ofa building, and ended by
blowing np ah jibe walls of tho fortifications and
defensive works. It is not known In what direc
tion Forrest marched yet, but we would not be
surprised to hear from him In tbe vicinity of Mem
phis or Paducah very soon. It is possible, as Gen.
Chalmers told the troops, that* hs was going to
Memphis, but it I? not probable. More likely be
wQI make his tracks farther east to effect an escape
or he may attack Paducah is force, with the inten
tion of crossing the river into Illinois, orcontinaiog
his raid, stimulated by recent success, farther into
Kentucky. 1
Washzkgtok, April 16.—Yesterday afternoon
about S o’clock, dispatches were received here from
Gen. Sherman confirming tbe surrender at Fort
Pillow and the brutal conduct of the rebels imme
diately afterwards, which bids fair to be amply re
taliated in that quarter In doe time.
The Star says according to Gen. Sherman's dis
patches our lots was 63 white troops ktiled and 100
wounded, and 900 black troops murdered in cold
blood after the surrender.
Fort Pillow isjtn Isolated post of no value what
ever to tbe defense of Columbus, and utterly an
te cable by tbe rebels, who have no doubt left that
vicinity ere this, having been disappointed with
considerable Joss In tbe object of tbelr raid, which
was tbe capture of Columbus, whence they were
promptly but severely repulsed, with no loss to ns.
Wo ore satisfied tbst cue investigation will show
that tbe lose of Fort Pillow was simplv the result
of a mistake of the local commander who occupied
it against direct orders, a contingency incident to
ail wars.
The Rebels, according to official dispatches re
ceived here lost evening, effected nothing at Pa
ducah, losing a soldier silled or woeaded for every
horse they succeeded In stealing, and doing ns no
other damage than bv a few thefts.
It is believed that Forrest's raiders will next ap
pear in the vicinity of Memphis, where they can in
efiect do no more than at ColambnA and Paducah,
and stand a very fair chance indeed of finding them
selves surrounded by overwhelming forces.
Cairo. April 16.—Tha steamer Glendale, from
'Memphis yesterday morning, passed Fori Pillow
last evening. There was no appearance of the
enemy, «nd tbe river is all clear. Nothing remains
of the fort. The Glendale brought 560 bales of cot
ton lor Cincinnati. No papers or news from be
low. A number of steamers are leaving here for
the South.
[From the Cairo Dally News, 16th-]
Yesterday afternoon we visited theUnlted States
BcspUai at Mound City, and bad bad an interview
with the wounded men from Fort Pillow.
The Fort Pillow wounded are doing much better
than could be expected from the terrible nature of
their wound?—but one. William Jones, had died,
though Adjutant Learing and Lieutenant John XL
Porter cannot possibly longeumve. Of the whole
number—fiftr-two— a*l except two were shot or cut
after they had evrrerulered / They all tell the same
story of rebel barbarities, and listening to a recital
of the terrible scenes at the fort, makes one's blood
run cold. They eay they were able to keep the
rebels at bay lor several hours, notwithstanding
the immense disparity of numbers, and bnt ibr
their treachery In creeping np under the walls of
the fort while a trace was pending, would hare
held out until the Olive Branch arrived with troop?,
'with whose assistance they would have defeated
Chalmers beyond doubt.
• So well were our men protected behind their
works that our loss was very trifling before the
rebels scaled the walls and obtained possession.
As soon as they saw the rebels inside the walla,
the Federal* ceased firing, knowing that further
resistance was useless: but the rebels continued
firing, crying oat, “Shoot them! Sboot them!
Show them so quarter!" The Federal?, with
one or two exceptions, had thrown down their
arms in token of surrender, and therefore could
ofler no resistance; la yarn they held np their
hands and begged their captors to spare their
lives—but they were appealing to fiends, and
•the butchery continued until out of near 630
men, who composed the garrison, bnt 230 re
mained alive, and of this number 62 were
wounded, and nine died In a few hours after.
Capu Bradford, of the Ist Alabama cavalry, was an
especial object ofrebcl hatred, and his death was
fully determined upon before the assault was made.
Alter he bad surrendered he was basely shot, but
bavins his revolver still at his aide, he emptied It
among a crown of rebels, bringing three of the
ecoundrclstotbe ground. The massacre was ac
quiesced in by moat of the rebel officers, Chalmers
himself expressly declaring that “ home-made Yan
kees and negroes should receive no quarter!" One
line officer, however, wa? not so lost to all dictates
ol humanity, and exerted himself to stop the slaugh
ter. To this man's noble exertions arc due moat
ol the lives that were saved Several of the wound
ed said, “he saved my life, God bless him!" His
same, if ever known, will be honored by all loyal
men, while they execrate the memory of Chalmers
and those who carried oat his fiendish orders.
The atrocities committed almost exceed belief,
and but Car the fact that so many confirm the sto
nes we could not credit them. One man, already
badly wounded, asked of a scoundrel wbo was fir
ing at him, to spare hU life. “No I damn yon !’*
was the rcpiy; “yon fight with niggers. and
forthwith discharged two more balls into him.
One negro was made to assist in digging a pit to
bury the dead In, sad was himself cast iu among
others and buried. -Fire ore known to have been
buried alive; of these two dug themselves oat,
and arc now alive and in the hospital. Daniel .Ty
ler of Co. B, was shot three Umcs, and struck on
the head, knockin'; out his eye. Auer this he wa?
boned, but nut liking his quarters, due out. BV
laughs over his adventures, and says he'ls one of
the beet “ dug outs" in the world.
Uoltert flail, colored, was lying in bed in the
hu-pltal at the rat, sick and helpless, when a
•older came in and commenced cutting with his
sabre—three cats went through his scalp, cleaving
the t-kuil and exposing the brain. The poor follow
threw up his 101 l arm to ward off the blows, and in
, doing so lO'tpart of his hand.
El Cotheli, colored, corporal Co. D, Is a man ol
considerable Intelligence, and two years ago was
a valuable piece of property. He make his boast
that he brought .fourteen hundred dollars when
“nigger property was might low.” Cotheli was
shot three times after he hod surrendered. *
Wm. Jordan, colored, was shot four times, and
lost one leg. He bears his misfortunes well, and
will doubtless recover. Dr, Wardner says tbe De
crees exhibit wonderful tenacity ol life, and of the
desperately wonnded at Fort Pillow nearly all trill
MneT of tie while soldiers hare several wounds
—several of them foor or five. Tie wounds are
generally severe, hot the men are doing extMmclr
Veil, and are In excellent spirits. They feel quite
urond of defending their fort so Ion? each
overwhelming numbers, and declare that but for
their treachery in stealing np while nerotretions
under flag of truce were going on, tie rebels
not haTetaken the place in daylmhu -When asked
about the condnct of the negroes, they gave them
-real praise, saying they fought as only bravs men
canfleht. The 1S& Tennessee cavahvconaltedof
but one battalion under MaJ. Booth, who commanfi-
numbered shout 250 ncn-^oetr-« ve were
taken prisoner*, twenty-nine are in the
Amr or five escaped, the rest he buried atFort Pil
low—nearly all of them massacred after they had
surrendered. These men ail
and recount the seme horrid store, and It is Im-
Doeelble to doubt the truth of their statements.
Key are all Kentuckians,
one. Some lew of them have families residjogln
thin state, having come here to escape rebel per
secutions. We hope a grateful JTjJ 1
take the cases of these brave men into special con
stderotionland place their families above want and
distress. . v _ . ,
W. P. Walker, Sergeant oimpany D. revived
four wounds, and was robbed of everything valua
ble on his person. D. W. Harrison was shot three
times, nndrobbed of £9» in greenbacks and a «1-
ver watch. James Walls was wounded twice and
robbed. Nearly all the others wore ronbed; bnt
few of them, however, had much money upon their
persons at the time. James M. Taylor and WUey
lioLinpon have four wounds each. Taylor was shot
three times, and struck In the f&co with a musket.
Lieut. Porter and Thomas J. Cartwright are the
oiilv ones who were wounded before the surrender.
William James, of co. A. died yesterday morning.
Many were driven into the rirer and drowned.
About four miles below the fort, lodged against the
trunk of a tree, were seen by passengers on the
Platte Valley, six dead bodies. Insiuther place
three bodies were seen. A number of other bodies
were seen singly on the banka.

tee on Elections, declaring B. K. Kitchen not en
titled to a teat as representative of the Seventh
District ol Virginia. The committee say they can
net satisfy themselves that there has been such
freedom of election as to warrant the conclusion
that Mr. Kitchen is the choice of the loyal voters
of the district. A greater portion failed to partici
pate m It for the reason that they were held under
the power of the rebel army.
ilr. SMITH, ol Kt., of the Minority Committee,
contended that there was primafacit evidence that
Mr. K. was the choice of hie district.

that as the people are taxed, and famish troops,
they should be represented here.

mentioning as a fact that the Virginia districts bor
dering on this Capital have been bo far under toe
control of the enemy since July, ISCI, that it is im
■ possible toAold an election there. The committee
desired to m. apaecedenL not only as to Mr. K.,
but as to all others under similar circumstances.
