The Secretary of War haw. it U alalcd. issued an order stopping the release or parole of prisoners taken at Fort Donel sop. It is known that an agreement for the exchange of prisoners was made some weeks ago, under the direction of the Secretary of War, by General Wool with. General Cobb, by which all of our prisoners were to be delivered the nest day under a flag of truce. A boat was sent to receive them, but no prisoners were brought uowii. The sa-ie was re peated for two days without success. Explanations were demanded by Gen. Wool, but none were furnished. Tend ing this breach of faith by the rebels all release or exchange will be refused by our Government. How the IIebkIj Steamer Merrimac is to be Sunk. in toe ucuaic in me Senate on the Stevens' float ing battery, Senator l'omeroy, of Kansas, expressed bis opinion that it will soon be demon strated that any wooden vessel, any Inrge ocean steamer, for instance, can run down such a battery as the Virgin- atid sink her. lie said if he was captain of tho Minnesota he would light en her, except in tho stem, a;:d put her at her highest speed, and run her upon the Vinrinia and sink her. The Boston Commercial Bulletin says on the sub ject : If tho Minnesota or any other vessel of. the same size, should run bows on with a speed of twelve knots an hour, striking the Merrimac on her broadside, she would sink her. As for instance, in 1K39, the ship Columbian, MX) tons, ly- inir at Damon s wharf, Charleston, part ed her bow hawser, and swinging with tho tide, run bows on against Charleston bridge, and cut it through. In 1841, the ship Eli Whitney, of 100 tons, coming tin the harbor with her three topsails set, run three-quarters of her length Into tho end of Lonsr Wharf. In 1H.V, a ship Roing up the Ducks in Liv erpool became unmanageable and run into the stones pier-headed, moving the stones, some twelve or thirteen feet, and doing but comparatively little damage to the ship- Wc believe there is tact and skill enough in our navy to di spose of t lie Mei-imac if she ventures out of Norfolk. The Sprinuliold fitnuhlican says these sagacious and prophetic hints are 'et ting common, and, since half the people here abouts already know what the projec t to be tried ;n Hampton Koads is, and tho rebels are unquestionably well informed on the subject, there can be no harm in printing the fact that the ocean steanieis aiulerbilt and Arago nave neen armed with strong iron prows and arc now awailiug the appearance of the Virginia to try upon her the experiment suggest ed. It is also stated that their upper works are protected by a covering of cot ton bales, which are more impervious lo cannon balls than iron. The experi ment will be a novel and exciting one, and if it shall turn out that iron-dad vessels can thus be destroyed by vessels of superior speed. and momentum, new andiniportautelements will be introduc ed into the calculation of the value of mailed ships of war. The Virginia is unditMlttedly ready to come out, and if she does not soon appear, it will indicate that the rebels have lost; confidence in her impregnability. lu. Jour. The Size ok Out Aitiiv. Assumim; au army of ('.00, (Mill men formed into a line, single rank, they will show a front of twenty-three miles. Should the jrener allssimo wish to make a rapid inspection, if he had the appliance of a parallel rail road track and a last locomotive, he may run down in front of the line in a quar ter of an hour, and make a hasty review. If mounted on his charger, at a smart trot, it would require over a half hour. The respectable army, formed in hollow square, in double rank, would be nearly three miles from side to side, showing on each front a fraction under three miles. The inclusuie would cotain about o,760 acres, an area equal to some im mense Indian corn fields in Illinois. Some time ago a relative of Gen. Mc Clcllan's remarked to him at a private dinner table, so the story runs, and wc believe it to bo true, "Of course you will Hot till us anything, but I suppose it would bo quite safe to assume that there wiil he at least two hard battles fuuht, d:i i t (he W-t and one in iho South, or i, O.utii ulnrlv one ut Coliimhus and t.ne at Mntmij."

Mr. Clark's Great Teletcope. Mr. Alvan Clark, of Cambridge, has recently completed an achromatic teles cope, aid to be the largest in the world. It wa9 constructed in pursuance of a con tract which has been abandoned in con sequence of the rebellion, and is now to be disposed of to any person or institu tion desiring it. How well Mr. Clark has succeeded in his great undertaking may be seen in tho extract below, which is taken from the proceedings of the Boston Society of Natural History, reported by Dr. Kneeland, the Recording Secretary, and relates to this remarkable instru ment : At the regular meeting of the Council cf the Boston Society of Natural His- tory, Feb. &1SG2, Chas. W. Tattle, Esq., a member present, and formerly of the Cambridge Observatory, at the request of Dr. Jackson, made some statements con cerning the great refracting telescope re cently constructed by Air. Alvan Clark. Mr. luilm said tuttl in uiiuul sOeiil a little out of place, in a society where a branch of science so little kindred with astronomy was" almost exclusively culti vated, to indulge: in any remarks on as tronomical subjects ; but as he had been requested by one of the Vice-Presidents of the ociety to make known to the members then present the result of an hour s inspection of an instrument, in "which all intelligent persons now felt a common interest, and towards which public attention henceforth would be di rected, he would briefly relate what he had seen along with othirs. Having been invited, some weeks since by Mr. Clark, to witness the performance of his recently constructed great teles cope, ho availed himself of a clear even ing, and the company of several members of this society, as well as other distin guished gentlemen, to visit Mr. Clark's residence at Canilmdge, where he had had the pleasure of viewing a few celes tial objects through the largest refract ing astronomical telescope in the world, so far as ho knew, certainly the largest in this country. The evening was one of unusual serenity. The sky was everywhere free from clouds, and the atmosphere so tranquil as to allow the images of stars to remain nearly steady and unrutlled in the lield of view. Hard ly anything but the bright radiance of tho ;uoon, thru vfrirt to its tit quar ter, prevented the night from being a rare one for re lined astronomical obser vation. , . The giant object glass, twenty-three feet local length, and eighteen inches in diameter, was placod in a temporary tube, and by means of ropes and pulleys attached to the euinnut ol the Observa tory tower, was hoisted into mid-air. where a 'limited range of the starry heavens was had. This. view embraced the glorious constellations of Orion and Canis Major. Mr. Clark at once adjusted the telescope on' the eelebaated nobula in the sword-handle of Orion. With a far less powerful telescope than this, this most wonderful of all nobulous ob jects presents a epeiticie surpassing all description; but the view which this telescope revealed was gorgeous and striking far beyond any view ever before obtained of it. i he most careless observer could not fail to note at once the exquisite defining and illuminating power of the instrument Mars ol every conceivable telescopic magnitude were scattered over tho bril liant mottled nebulous mass, and blazed upon the eye with great distinctness and splendor. The remarkable sextuple-star, Theta 1 Ononis, disclosed to view its two minutest, members, which stood out clear and prominent. Herselfcl regards the distinct perception of both of these faint stars as the severest test which can be applied to a telescope. How many of the innumerable stars iu the field had been before r.oted by astronomers it is impos sible to tell from so general an observation; but the capacity of the telescope to col lect faint gleams of licht must have hc-ie resulted in showing a large number or hitherto unseen small stars. Tho grand nebula was most admirably defined, and the numerous luminous ridges of its granular structure seemed almost ready to bloom into swarms of individual iniitute stars, and especially so in that part w here its form assumes a kind of rude resemblance to the head and yawning jaws of a monster. Time did not admit of any inspections of the wonderful ontli.ies of this great nebula, which are known to extend over a con siderable space, and possess very great astronomical interest. The telcacope was then directed to the bright star Sinus, the most luilliant star in the whole heavens, and popularly known as the ''Dog Mar." All eyes ea gerly '"ht fCil tlii- minute companion star which Mr. Clark had discoveied on the previous Friday evening, on the occa sion of his first directing the telescope to that star. It required but little lime for those accustomed .to look at minute telescopic o!i!)ci, iu itiviT tl.C little stranger hovering close within the la .ling rays of the brilliant Sii ius, am' al most t ui tly following it in light ascen sion, lis minute, trcfiiiiliMis liht. 'vhen once caught be the eye, was cauily kept in view, and as the star ascended in alti tude, became still better seen. In point of brilliancy it does not differ greatly from the well known "sixth star iu the trapeiinm" of Orion. This discovery must be regarded as one of the very highest interest in side real astronomy at this time, on account of the connection it ny bv with tho phenomenon of orbital motion of Sirius. l'ut whether this newly discovered min ute star is physically connected with Sirius or whether its proximity to that Btar results solely from the small angle under which it appears, and the smaller star is far more remote, or even still much nearer us than Sirius, remains to be determined. Tho probabilities aro in favor of its be'ng physically associated with the larger star. In caso it is physi cally connected with Sirius, it is of the highest astronomical interest to know whether it is the lioii-luniinotis ''body " which the astronomers have assigned to Syrius to account for its anomalous motion. That the deviations in the proper motion of Sirius indicate its connection with some body hitherto undiscovered, is ciear from the inutrpeiwlrr.t deduction of Bessel, l'eters, and more recently those of Mr. SafTord, of the Cambridge Obser vatory. ; The two latter astf onomers have concurred in, assigning a period ot .fifty years to Sirius, in which time it performs a revolution round some object hitherto undiscovered. ' It is highly improbable' that Sirius revolves round so small a body a this little star would seem to be as a cenlrol attracting mass, but the laws of synoniics assure us that two bodies counccted with and revolving about each other in space, do revolve about, their common centre of gravity, which is situated in a line joining them and nearest tho greater mass. This being so, the larger star would appear to describe an orbit round tho common centre of gravity. Further observation and calculation will be necessary to make out the true character of this little star. From so slight an examination of this great telcscopoit would bo impossible to declare its highest capacity, or the limit beyond which it becomes powerless. Mr. Tuttlo closed his remarks, saying that it was a matter of just national and individual pride that our countryman, struggling ajrainst adverse circumstances, had at length rivalled the best opticians abroad, and had succeeded in building so noble an instrument. ' Oaiii. April 10. The correspondent of tiie Cincinnati Times gives the follow ing acoounl of the Pitt sburg batth: Our forces were stationed in the form of a semicircle the right resting on a point north of Cramp's Landing, our cen tre being in front of the Union road, leading to the river, in the direction of Hamburg, four miles north of Pittsburg landing. At two o'clock on the morning of the lilh, four hundred men from i'rentiss's Division were attacked by the cnmey,half a mile in advance ol our lines. I ur men fell back on the Twenty-fifth Missouri, swiftly pursued by liie enemy. The advance of the rebels reached Col. IVabody's Brigade just as the long roll was being sounded and the men were falling into line. Itesistanee was but short, anil they retreated, under a galling lire, until they reached our lines, the Second Divjsion. At six o'clock the attack had become general along the entire front of our lines The enemy, in large force, drove in the pickets of Gen. Sherman's Division, and tell, with a vengeance, on the forty eighth, Seventieth, and Seventy-second Ohio. These troops was never before in action, and being bo unexpectedly attacked made as ablo resistance as possible, but were in common with the forces of General Prentiss forced to seek support on boats immediately in their rear. At ten o clock the entire line on both sides was fully engaged. The roar of c annon and musketry ias without intermission from t lie main centre to the point extending halt way down the left w ing. The rebels made a desperate charge on I oiu IceiitU Olim liatlei v. nil it not be inn; sufficiently sustained by infantry fell into their hands. Another severe light occurred lor the possession of tin Fifth Ohio batfery, ami three of its guns were taken by in' enemy. By eleven o'clock a number of commanders of. reui- ments had fallen, and in some cases not a single lield oili er remained. Vet the lighting continued with an earnestuess which showed that, the contest on both sides was for death nr victory. Foot by foot the ground wai contested, and find ing it impossible t drive back our cen ter the enemy 8lackruoil their tire and made a vigorous effort; on our left wing, endeavoring to outllai.k it and drive it to iho rivr bank. This w ing was under the command of General Hurlbut, and (onipo-.l of lhi Fourteenth, Thirty-second, Fortj - fourth, and Fifty-seventh Indiana, and the Twenty-first, and Eighteenth Illinois, fronting its entire line,1 however, ' were the f ifty-foui iii, Fifty-arventh, and Sev- nl ir.a,.v.til It 4 llti.fc it .1 tltA l'il'llt ll.it ' J " - - - - - cavalry of Sherman's division. For nearly t'.vo hours a sheet of fire blazed from both cohuns, the, rebels light ing with a valor that was only equaled by those ontending wilh them. While the 'contest ragel tho hottest, the gunboat Taylor passed up tho river to apointopposite the enemy, and poured in a broadside from her immense guns, greatly aiding in forcing back tho ene my. Up to 3 o'clock the battle raged with a fury that defies description. The rebels had found every attempt to break our line" unavailable. They had strived to drive in our main column, and finding that impossible, had turned all their strength upon our left wing. Foiled in that quarter, they now made another attack on our centre, and made every efTott to rout our forces beforo rein forcements, which had been sent for, should come up. it T o'clock there was a short cessa tion in the firing of the enemy, and their lines falling back on their centre for nearly half a mile, then suddenly wheeled, and again threw their centre force upon our left wing, determined to make a final struggle in that quarter, but the gunboats Tyler and Lexington poured in their shot thick and fast with terrible effect. Meantime, General Wallace, who had taken a circuitous route from Crump's Lauding, appeared suddenly on the enemy's right wing. In the face of this combination of circumstances, the rebels felt that their enterprise for the day was a failure, and, as night was approaching, fell back until they reached an advanta geous position somewhat in the rear, yet occupying the main road to Corinth. Tho gunboats continued to send their shell after them until they were out of range, and, after a waried watching of several hours of intense anxiety, the advance regiments of Gen. Buell's army appeared on the opposite bank of tho river, and the work of crossing the river began. Iho Thirty-sixth Indiana and tho Sixth Ohio, being first to cross, were fol lowed by the main portions of General Nelson's and Brucc's divisions. Cheer after cheer greeted their arrival, and they were immediately sent to' the advance, where they rested on their arms for the night. All night long sleamcrs were engaged in bringing Buell's forces across the river, and when daylight broke in, it was evi dent that the rebels too, had teen strongly reinforced. The battle was opened by tho rebels at 7 o'clock from the Corinth road, and in half an hour extended along the whole line. At t) o'clock tho sound of artil lery and musketry fully equalled that of the previous day. the enemy was met by lite reinlorcenients, and the str.l tin- wearied soldiers of yesterday with an energy that tney certainly could not have expected. It became evident that the enemy were avoiding t lie extreme ot our lelt wing, and endeavoring with perseverance and determination to lind some weak point by which to turn our force. They left one point but to return to it immedi ately and then as suddenly they would, by some masterly stroke of Generalship direct the most vigorous attack upon some division uere luey lancied tney would not be expected, but the fire of our lines was as steady as clock-work and it soon became evident that the ene my considered the task they had under taken a hopeless one. Further reinforcements now began to arrive and take position on the right of the main centre, under Gens. Wallace, Grant, Buell, Nelson, Sherman, and Crit tenden, who were everywhere present directing the movements for a new stroke on the enemy. Suddenly both wings o'f our army were turned upon the enemy with the intention of driving them into an extensive ravine. At the same time' a powerful battery was placed in an open field, which poured volley after volley of cannister into the rebel ranks. At half past eleven the roar of the battle shook the earth. The Union guns were fired with all the ener gy that the prospect of an enemy's de feat inspired, while the rebels' lire w as not so vigorous, and (hey evinced a de sire to retire. They finally fell back slowly, keeping up the lire from their artillery and mus ketry along their whole column as they retreated. Thev wont in excellent order, battling at every advantageous point, and delivering their lire with considera ble effect, but from all the divisions of our lines they were closely pursued, a galling lire being kept upon their rear. yond our former lines, and were in full retreat for Corinth.' pursued by our cav alry. The forces engaged on both sides in this days' battle aro estimated at about 7n,00) each. x no rutin jr Snow - at tub Nohtii. Tbe Maiicliu-ter (N. 11.)

The explosion took place at the cornor of Tenth and Keedl streets, and just above the junction of the Passayunk road. The fire works anl cartridge manufactory of Mr. Sauiaet Jackson was blown up in some, as yet.- unaccountabie manner, the edifice taking fire and in a short time leaving 6nly few ruins. The building was a one story frame, located on a lot about on hundred feet square. Ths edifice itself was about fifty feet square. Mr. Jack son was engaged in filling a heavy order for cartridges for the United States Government, and he had about fifty girli and about twenty-four men working for him. The effects of the explosion wero terrible. The edifice was scattered ia rums i at leasi foui' or Hve vi i'rnt wurat people were killed instantly, and two or three of them were blown to minute fragments. The heads of three persons. a number of arrai, and numerous parts oE bodies wero found around the immedi ate vicinity of the factory. The Klica ana citizens immediately rendered all the aid possible. The dead and wounol- cd were carried out and placed in var ious neighboring dwellings, drug stores, etc., while Borne of the injured were ta ken to the Pennsylvania Hospital. Al though there were no buildings immedi ately contiguous to the factory, tho ex plosion did much damage lo the sur rounding property. DusPAiiiixo Call ronTnoors.
