At dawn the •' >t began to shine npon a bitterly cold day. Fires were built toward tho rear then, and companies, in turn relieving one another, went hack and thawed their fronen garments and made coffee. But they had no food, not a bite. Their •nly breakfast was coffee, and thus they made ready to face the day. For the Confederates in the fort it was not a whit more comfortable. They lay upon their arms all night in tho trenches. And yet nobody on either side was disheartened. The Confederate soldiers wore full of light and enthusiasm. At noon tho Federal Gen. Lew Wallace and Ills Third division of min gled veterans and raw recruits arrived into «amp ill tho center with cheers und songs and bugles souuding. Gen. Wallace rodo Immediately to Grant's headquarters and dined with him on crackers and coffee. The general was nearly as badly off ns his men. It was this day that the interchange of courtesies between the licet und t he fort took THE GRAND SOP T IE. In the Confederate council the night of the 14th it was determined that the t'orco in fchu fort should attempt to cut it« way out. on the Federal right,through McClernand'* division. Driving this division back, it was to be made to roll over upon Wallace's division in tho «enter, thus leaving tho Wynn's Ferry road dear. By that road tho Confederates were to escape to Charlotte, Tenn. Pillow, with infantry and cavalry, was to make tho attack on the Federal extreme right, near the river. Buckner was to follow immediately after, end do for Lew Wallace's division in the •enter. That was tho plan. Meantime there was noli much lighting on had.

Lo -nu He was here an,1 there and everywhere in that battle, showering electric words upon hu men, his dark face lit with excitement, his e\ e shining like an eagle's. the magnet ism ot his personal influence he prevented a panic and a rout, early in the day. Mc( demand's division, with Taylor's Dresser's and McAllisters batteries of li-ht artillery, met the Confederate onset bravely and well. To tho right of Oglesby still was Gen. McArthur, nearest the river'. He had been ordered there the night before, with troops w ho had had m food all day. They passed the night in the snow and sleet, with out lires or shelter. G*:i. McArthur hud had no time to become acquainted with the nature of the ground. Ho only knew that he faced Fort Donelson. The Confederate design was to make u dash und get. cavalry in his rear, and then with cavalry to rear of "him. infantry before, he would be powerless. Soldiers do not always find it easy to light nll _ #„n a k a' i# » "B"' • ' but SeArUmr' 8 men hod j fasted thirty-six hours. In this state of hun- ! stomached men in line of battle. They took rHvpIV IlflTirl in fltn flirtt# D»f ___ si ___> lively hand in tho light. But presently • worse trouble than empty stomachs con fronted them, and that was empty cartridge boxes. Before that olwti.de they were indeed powerless, and so the brigade fell back some hundreds of yards to tho reur and took up w new position. It is sufficient, to say of them that toward night they got one square meal, and then moved over to the left of the Federal forces to support the troops fighting there. The morning progressed. It began to look indeed as if Pillow was going to carry out his threat to "roll the enemy over." McArthur's brigade had crumbled away. So had Oglesby's. McCleniand's division was in tho gravest danger. In the center, Lew Wallace, with the Third division, was lying inactive, llis orders were to act on the defensive and watch the Confederates to prevent their es caping his way. Pillow'« division, in deploying, spread wider end wider, and more and more toward Low Wallace. McClcrnaud's division began to waver. Three Confederate batteries, Maney'a, Porter's and Graves', poured a steady fire into it. Buckner was advancing, too, with his •rest's cavalry flitting about ths 8 er the S' werc when they henrd at 5 o'clock in morning the firing on Oglesby ou their As 300,1 *** It w «* heard, without wait» log for orders, McArthur formed his empty «tnniAf^nl nnn in lino nf 'in.........t. men, with F, outskirts. The three Federal batteries had exhausted their ammunition. Taylor's ulone had fired that morning 1,700 rounds. Buckner had or dered an advance of three regiments before noon. They had been met with a. blinding fire from Col. W. H. L Wallace's brigade. Snow flying in the air confused them so that they could not see their way besides, and they fell back to their entrenchments in dis order. But presently Buckner gathered his forces and camo gallantly on again. McClernand sent word to Low Wallace to aid him. In the absence of positive orders from headquurtere Wallace declined to move. The place grew hotter and hotter. Col. John A. Logan was wounded. McClernand again sent word to Wallace, and this time Wallace ordered forward Col. Cruft's brigade, the first in 1ns division. Here an uu fortui. iU mistake occurred, and several regi ments of Federal soldiers fired into each other, doing serious damage. Cruft's brigade took the places of McArthur's exhausted men. Craft's men fought gallantly, but at length fell back some distance and took up position near the hospital. When Logan was wounded he suggested to Col. T. 13. G. Hansom, of the Eleventh Illi nois, to take his place with the Eleventh. Ransom, too. had been wounded, but hud had his wound dressed. Both were heroes that day. Logan's regiment wus quite out of am munition, therefore forced to fall hack, when its commander went to have his wound dressed. The Thirt y-first march«! hack for ammunition, leaving the Eleventh alone in the fray. But the Eleventh was attacked not only in. front, but on hftth Hanks, and finally broke and retreated. _ Gen. Wallace still waited, with his division iu line, for ordere from Grant. McOlornand's second message had lieen that his flanks were turned and hi« whole command was endan gered. It was then that Col. Cruft's brigade was sent to his relief. But the Confederate billows still swept on. Fugitives from tho fight scattered down the hill l-chiud Wallace's division. A mount«! ollicer galloped by. He had lost his head completely, and shouted to the general: "We are cut, to pieces. 1 ' Then Lew Wallace took the responsibility of the order of battle upon his own shoulders. | Instantly he ordered up bis »bird brigade, IV.

Smith himself, with long, gray hair, a color bearer by his side, rode along the front of his line, a striking, inspiring figure. He directed them when near enough to churgo Iwyonct on the rifle pita The signal was given, the column moved forward and was met by a roar of musketry from the rifle pita Col. Tuttle was in the lead with his Second Iowa regiment. The advancing line wavered a moment under the fire that mowed it, down, then steadied und went irresistibly on. When within range of t he Confederate muskets Col. Tuttle shouted to his men, "Forward !" Then they made the rattling bayonet charge. It drove the Confederates from their works and Smith's men occupied them. In the midst of cheers and shouts from tho whole division the Stars and Stripes were planted upon the ! works of Fort Donelson. Tims it was all over with the Confederate right. Over on the Federal right McCIt-niund't.; di vision lmd been swept from the ground it- oc cupied in the morning. Although Lew Wal lace's men had checked the retreat; there and stopped the sortie, yet the ground held by McClernand in tho morning hud not been re taken. Grunt ordered Lew Wallace to retake it. As soon as Gen. Smith's di vision began to move, Wallace was to attack too. Thus the Confederates would lie engaged on both right and left. Grant rode down the river to see that, Smith was carrying out the order on his side; then he hurried up to the right t o watch Wallace s tneii.cxecute their command. At noon it limited as if victory was perched on the Confederate standard. The Wynn's Ferry road, which hail been occupied by Mc Clernatid, was opeu l'or tho Confederate re treat. Buckner bail accomplished what, ho had been ordered to do. The time just before Grant ordered the renewed attack in the af ternoon hod been the goldeu moment for es cape. It was lost. Buckner had halted, wait | ! : ( \ [ ing for his artillery and reserves to follow him oi t of the intrenehnieiits. Pillow bad tele graphed A. 8. Johnston: "On the honor of a s oldier, tho day is ouiu." All at once Gen. Pillow sent Buckner word to come back und take up his position within tho works. Ho could only obey. As lie fell back with his men he met Gen. Floyd. Floyd was surprised, nnd asked what lie was about. He ordered Buckner to stay where lie was till he, Floyd, could see Pillow. Thus there was more waiting. Finally Buckner, the fighting general, was ordered to cross to tho extreme Confederate right, and stop Gen. Smith, who was storming tho works.

But, when morning came the sun's first rays shone u(ioii a bugler, currying a whit» flag from Biv-kner to Grant.

Grant's reply lias I" come historic: "No terms will las grant*--1 exivpt i*.n um-on ilitional cud imni'-iiiate surrender. I propose to move immediately upon your works."

Soon that Sunday morning, Feb. Id, 1 Si>2, the Confe-fcrate forces surrendered to Grunt, and the story of Fort Donelson was toU. Buckner had good reckon to lie in an un pleasant frame of mind that morning. At midnight the night before a council of war was held between himself and Pillow und Floyd. Buckner told them his men could not ! stand more than half an hour's lighting. Hunger, cold and exhaustion had done their work at, last. Besides, there was no more i ammunition. If his men tried to escape three-quarters of them must be lost to save the other quarter. Surrender wan the only thing. Floyd and Pillow said they would not Mir- ; render, they would die lir.st. Then Floyd ; handed over the supreme command of the | fort to Pillow, who in turn transferred it to I Buckner, who surrendered the fort. Pillow, i with sonic of his immediate pvroonal com-] ninnd, crossed tho river upon a scow and made good his cseape. Two small steamers from up tho river canto about daylight to the landing. They took Floyd and some of his men up the river. Forrest and bis cavalry escaped on horseback. The two steamers con tained Conf «lern to re-enforcements, who were dumped out upon shore. Then Floyd's men boarded tho bouta The conduct of himself ! and Pillow was regarded as unsoldierlv, and I was rnado the subject of u searching investi- 1 gation from tbn Confederate government. Iu an official letter to the Confederate secretary of war, Pillow thought that, considering the sacrifices be hml mode for the Confederacy, und "the large and dependent family of grown up und unmarried daughters on his hands," he bad been very shabbily treated. Of tho forces engagea iu this great tight there were of Confederates, nll told, some thing over ItMXW; of Federal«, 27.000. The best estimate of tho Confederate killed and wounded makes them about 2,000. Of the Union forces the killed, wounded and missing aggregateil 3.329. The troops of Grant's army at Donelson were mostly western men, many of them from Illinois and Indiana. Ono remarkable fact in this fight is tho number of men who nfterward became distinguished that took part in it. Hundreds of men afterward famous both in military nnd civil life fought there on those fateful tfavs. famous military fought there on those fateful tfavs. a m f.Vv m ftri »hl m "BURIED WHERE THEY KKI.l.." Immediately after the surrender Grant, ! McClernand and Wallace were made major j generals. Grant's commission was dated Feb. Id, and he was immediately placed in charge of the military district of west Tennessee. Numbers of soldiers were buried on the field where they fell. Some of their graves are still to be seen.' But of the earthworks und lines of fortifications at Donelson there is scarcely n trace. Even so from tho hearts of the contestants that day have faded out the traces of the lines which separated them. Years ago Buckner forgave Grant.

"Have yon evidence oi this?" "Abundance! Only a few weeks ago Dr. <1. L.
