vbrre-the rebels have so long promised the
world they would die has nt lust been
liandoni'd- Another evacuation hua been
Htlded to their already lonjr list, rik! the
titiher ot Witters" i now virtually open
fl'om its source lo its moutb. A few minutes
n(.'0 we saw the lights of gleuminf? in the
dixlanca the last timo they will ever shine
on rebel mierule in that hot-bed of treason.
lv e to-roxrow's sua goi s down, tho doomed
city will be garrii-oned by Union troops;
a hundred guns will command its dusly
sti et ts; ilia "flair of the f ree heart's hope and
borne" will again float in its sultry Ireize;
too reign or urrcr inaugurated bv tne lead-
era of the bogus Oonfddiacy will know ii 1
no more torever, ami ma loyulistts there, If
th"re beanjcun giveuttcrauce to their long
stifled feedings, with no one to molest or
make them aliaid. Uut I aniicipnte.
Early last evening it became apparent
that the enemy were evacuating Fort i'illow.
13etwce.i 6ix and ftveu o'clock dense vol
umes of smokij were eeu riiug in the direc
tion of the Fort, nud as the shadows of thu
coming night began to thicken, they were
succeeded by ti;rce tunics which shot up
from n bundrtd dilfeiout points, above lh
tops ot ihe hlsrhest tiecs, biilhantly illumi
nating the scene in the- immcdiiile vicinity,
und leaving no doubt in the minds of those
on'the- flotilla that tho Immense barracks of
the enemy bad been fir.-d and abandoned.
Dm in tne cuDflarninui, Biuud twelve or lif
teen heavy discharges of artillery were
heard, and bd'tiro the evening was too f r
rdranced, smne o( the shut and shell from
these could be semi plunging Into tbj river
a s,hort distur.O) b'ilo tlie gunboats, and
M'lidiua; there bugo columns of spray in the
Bir. It needed no iiuusuui diviimlion to
comprthend ut a glanfte that bi.'fore abandon-
iu:r their woik-", the cuemy bad loaded iht-ir
guus, pointed tiiem up St earn ai d tlien np
pli.'d the torch to ihe r cat ii The de
sign ' f tliu was to keep th" (1 nilla nt n rs-
secte.lil i (ii-t tnoe until tbey could mako
good their i i-c ip .
Tne nigiit wore siw.iy slowly. All were
anxious to advance, but Iheoidurto do sj
wad not given till live o'clock this morning.
At that hour tlie flag ship Denton weighed
anchor aud siarted Iu tuo direcuon of the
fort, signaling die remaining gunboat.-! to
follow. On turning Cruigheud'a point, they
were not a little surprised at seeing the stars
and stripes already waving over ihe rebel
woik. It was afterwards learned that du
ring the night. Colonel Ellet, f tho rum
Heel who it will bi rem"inbered, acts inde
pendently of tho Flag (jffljer had moved
down the Hlrenm will) two or three ol his
boa!?, and finding uo enemy to dispute bis
paifngi;, had lmded ut tho Icrt aud hoi" ted
tlie banner of beauty on that fl .g-tad' where
the re-bul ensign hail so n cently wavtd. The
uct w is thought to bo rather discourteous to
the flotilla, Muno of the t fibers id which
matiil, sttd a liulo ill leeling, hut tb is soon
Wide away lu 'be general j y of the occasion.
l!y eiclit o'clock every visiel, diie:tly or
indirectly connected with the flrilla, was
riilnrat tha fort or iu motion toward it.
The gwnboals were huddled together iu the
stream; the tugs were i-eretmhig and bust
ling about as if they had never before had
ou i to so much buniui;ss to attend to: t ioam-
munition bouts the Great Western, black as'
night, and the Judgo rorrcncn, exactly the
reverse were lazily aiming down; the tow
bonts, piifliun niuiiu hlowljr wish two or
three mortars upiece lnhd to them, were
doing their utmost not to be beliiud the rest,
und the rams and tiansport.i were scudding
along at their highest rate of rpeed. The
scene was most inspiriting, and every pule
on the tloliila bout quicker ti the eight. N j
wonder the hoi-pitalti of our laud foices were
almost entirely cluired. No wonder that
pale faces grew fljshod. N wondsr that
tach vied with the ether who Hbonld b) first
within the deseiied rebel stroughold. The
long, long ranker of inaction was over,
and something towa'd closing the account ot
the rebellion on the MiMairsippi was about to
be done.
When the transport having on board a bri
gades of newspaper correspuiidsuti reached
the lort, we foun t l:s Intrenchmenti thiong

Fort rill nv is naturally the stronemt

the following transcript from my memoran

butteries, about half a mde in extent, be
ginning at the upper end, I made the anucxed
entry :
1 128 pounder, rifled, caseumed.
1 heavy 10 inch gun.
1 8 inch Parrott.
1 21 pounder, dismounted.

1 heavy 10-inch Columbiad, burst.
1 13 inch mortar, burst.
1 128 p uadcr, dleinounted.
Ou tne bluff, but eight gu.ns and two mor
tars had been mounted, ot which six only
remained, as follows :
2 32 pounders, dismounted.
1 Gl pounder, (rifled) burst.
1 lo iucb Poi ruU, ut-mouuted.
2 10 inch mortars, ppike-d.
All thesj guns, exoept tho mortars, bsd
been heavily loaded, and fires were built
around them, which burned their carriages
and caused them to explode or dismount
therast Ives when discharged.
The two 10 inch moi tars are located a short
distance back of thu brow of the blull', below
tho lower end of the water bitteries. They
are old fat-hioned but verv good guns. The
13-inch mortar is split directly through the
cent x. Poi lions of one half of it are em
bedded In the mrrounding works, and the
other half in lying wheig it fell. The metal
is porou, hard, nod altogether unsuited for
the use to which il was in this instance put.
This couQiina the statement I made noma
wetks ago rtdaiive to the bursting of this
gun. .

An at.ack upon Fort Pillow was coutsm

was not made owing to the uou-fulMillmeut
of some plsns. All things were ready, how
