SATURDAY'S FIGHT AT FORT DONELSON.

well calculated to

object of . the rebels was to uato
the fort, and cut their way through)
Vol. ugieaoy-s command in awng o,

pewering host, and from advantageous
positions showered upon our ranks the
most murderous volleys of musketry,
grape, an J eanieter, killing and wound-
Kg our men almost oy companies i
ery round, yet the stars an j stripes
mored not a single foot backward.-
Bravely, determinedly, without flinch
ing, these four regiments held their
ground, dealing death, dying, and
fighting against appalling odds, and in
the face of every diaadvantage. The
18tb recriment seems to have resisted
.i ; .
the severest storm
ranka the rebela directed their heavieat
fire; but instead of falling back they
advanced to the very face of the ene
my, and there stood, as it were, in the
very jaws of death, fighting bravely
and determinedly, with scarcely a
prospect that a single one would escape
aure and swift, destruction.
For three hours these four regi
ments, numbering scarcely three thou
sand men, held their ground against
the whole rebel garrison. At one time
the 18th, being partially flanked, was
exposed to a cross fire of both musket
ry and artillery, but our right wing
securing the rebels' left at once re
lieved them. During Ihis critical mo
ment Col. Micheal K. Lawler fell pierc
ed by two musket balls. Capt. Brush,
acting Lieut Colonel, "assumed com
mand, but waa soon wounded. Capt.
Cruse was shot dead; Capt. Lawler
was mortally wounded; Lieuts. Mans
ford and Thompson were killed; Lieuts.
R. Eelley and Seanlan wounded; Capta.
Dillon and Wilson were wounded; so
that the daring Egyptian regiment
stood before an overwhelming foe al
most without the officers actually re
quired to direct its oporations. How
desperately they fought, how terribly
they suffered, can never be fully
known. They fell in heaps, dead and
wounded. Companiea were bereft of
their captsins and lieutenants; captains
were almost bereft of companies.
The Eighteenth, Twentieth, and Thi-ty-first
did their duty nobly. Cols.
Oglesby, Hsrsb, and Logan, dashed
along their ranks, waving their hats,
and cheering their men on to the con
flict. "Suffer death, men," cried Lo
gan, "but disgraee never; stand firm;
yield never. And well they heeded
him. Many fell, killed and wounded.
Among the former, we are pained to
name Lieut. Col. White, and, among
the latter Logan.
Oglesby 's (the Eighteenth) and
Marsh's (the Twentieth) (ought desper

the other regiments, an undue propor

Never perhaps on the American
continent has a more bloody battle
been fought. An officer who partici

informs us that the scene beggars de

the conception of thosw who were not

THE CHASE AFTER PRICE.
SPRINGFIELD, Feb. 17, via
LEBANON, Feb. 18.
The great military race taking place
between our army and the rebel forces
in the Southwest, bids fair to become
distinguished among the most remarka
ble of the kind in the annals of war.
I add a few particulars to my dispatch
this morning, obtained from the mes
senger. The Federal army on Sunday night
encamped about fifteen miles beyond
Keetsville, Barry county, on the Fay
Price encamped for the night seven
Gen. Curtis's headquarters was at
Msj. Harben's house. Orders were
given to start at four o'clock yesterday
(Monday) morning. "
The messenger, as previously report
ed, heard heavy firing in the morn
ing, which soon ceased.
Our forces were taking an average
of seventy-five prisoners daily, and
have captured a large number of
horses and twenty-two wagons.
Sigel joins Curtis at Cassville.
Had Price not been disturbed at
Crane Creek, Sigle, it is thought,
would have headed him off.
Our cavalry usually come up with
the rebel rear guard about 3 o'clock P.
M , and give them a few shots from
the mountain howitxers, to try their
The first time Price's batteries re
plied to us was on Sunday. The reb
els were too hard pushed to long re
turn compliments of that kind.
It was reported that Price would
come up with re-enforcements at Cross

Sunday night, two of our men were
killed at Keetsville by some rebels, who
fired from behind a corn-crib. One of
the former received three shots before

movements of the army at Cairo on
Sunday show that a surrender has been
proposed. The gunboats, supported
by a large force of iafantry, proceeded
to Columbus yesterdsy morning. The
former were made ready to land, aad
tbe boats formed in line of battle and
prepared for an attack. After the first
shot a flag of trace waa sent out from
Columbus, and after a consultation of
an hour and a half, the infantry were
ordered back to Cairo. Nothing bad
transpired as to the result of the inter
view at Cairo last evening. The boats
had not returned.
It was reported and believed that
Gen. Bcxll, who has taken command
of his division in person, occupied
Nashville yesterdsy. -
The indications are that all the forti
fied points in Tennessee including
Nashville, Columbus and Memphis
are to be surrendered without a fight;
and it is probable that the report of a
general laying down or arms in the
btate will be confirmed. This would
be a blow to (he rebellion still more se
vere than the fall of Fort Donelson.
Tennessee in our possession, and all
railroad communication between other
seceded States could soon be controlled.
The work goes bravely forward. Im
portant events follow closely upon each
other, all pointing to the certain over
throw of the rebels. Gn. Oat. titk.

further advance has been made by
Burnside, nor was any immediately
expected. The gun-boats had returned
from Elisabeth City. AH the fleet were
at anchor off Roanoke Island.
An immense amount of trophies have
been captured, including the aplendid
State flag of North Carolina, worked
by the ladies of that State; also quanti
ties of antiquated arms. Colonel Cor
coran and seven hundred other Federal
prisoners, are expected hourly to arrive
at Old Point.
Tbb Ribkls Bacbslidiho. The
Richmond Enquirer talks very piously
upon tbe superiority of religious to
irreligious soldiers, and laments that
the Confederates are getting wicked.
We must remark the painful eviden
ces of the loss of the sense of our de
pendence on God aa the war has pro
gressed. It did not commence so.
The city of Charleston is said to have
been, on the eve of the battle of Fort
Sumter, like one vast alter from which
ascended the incense of prayer. The
whole nation, from Virginia to Texas,
commemorated our early and brilliant
victory at Manassas by thanksgiving in
the ten thoussnd sanctuaries of the
land. But there has lately been a
marked relaxation of the sense of our
dependence on the God of Battles.
It baa been impiously said that the bat
tle at Belmont was won by tbe ener
getic oaths of our officers.
