CirThe French paper . of Philadelphia
oblished an article taken from the Opin-
ion Nationale of Paris, which includes offi
cial document, and declares that the French
Government is quietly conniving with the
efforts of the confederate agents to have
iron-clad war Vessels built in France for the
r" confederate service.'
From the revelatiata of the Opinion it
appears that parties at Nantes and Bordeaux
have been for months at work building war
vessels, ostensibly for China hot really f-r
the rebels. Mr. Dayton last fall laid be
fore the French Government proofs of the
real destination of the vessels, end after
much delay the work was stopped by gov
. eminent orders; but during the last two
months the Opioion declares that the work
has been resumed, and two of the 'vessels
are ready to be passed over to the confed
erate agents. Lieut. Msury and Captain
Bullock have been prominent in theae ne
gotiations. ...
These vessels are Iron-clad, and the reb
el authorities hare ordered an entire fleet.

A correspondent of tbe St. Louis Demo
crat, tvbo'was oo board the steamer Platte
Valley, gives a detailed description of the
massacre at Fort Pillow. When about three
miles below the fort, on, its way up, the boat
was aigoaled by a flatboat on. the Missouri
ahore and took oo a colored corpora) and
three wounded men, who gave tbem the
first account of the fight. On reaching the
fort, tbe rebels raised a white flag and asked
the boat to atop agreeing on a trace, till 5
P. M. about nine hours. The writer went
ashore and walked about, talking freely with
tbe rebel officers. We quote as follows: ;
We have gleaned the facts of ihe . fight
from authentic sources, and they may be
relied upon as truthful. The rebels, under
Forrest, appeared and drove in the pickets
about sunrise on Tuesday morn'og. The
garrison of the fort consisted of about two
hundred of the 13th Tennessee volunteers
and four hundred negro artillery, all under
command of Major Booth; the gut. boat No.
7 waa also in the river. The rebels first
attacked the two rater forts, and in several
attempts to charge were repulsed. Tbey
were constantly re-enforced, and extended
their lines to the river on both sides of the
fort. The garrison in the two outer forts
were at length overpowered by superior
numbers, and about noon evacuated them
and retired to the fort on the river. Here
tbe fight was maintained with great ob
stinscy, and continued till about 4 P. M.
Tbe approach to the fort from the rear is
over a gentle declivi'y, cleared and fully ex
posed to a rakii g fire from two sides of the
fort. About thirty yards from the fort ia a
deep ravine, running all along the front, and
so ateep at the bottom as to be bidden from
the lorts, and not commanded by. its guns.
Tbe rebels charged with great boldness
down the declivity, aod faced without
blaochirg a mnrderous fire from the guns
and small armsCT tbe fort, and crowJed in
to tbe ravine, where tbey were sheltered
from fire by the steepbank, which had been
thus left by some unaccountable neglect p.
ignorance. Hero tbe rebels organized for
fioil cbarga npon tbe fort, after sending a
flag of trnce with a demand for surrender,
which waa refused. Tbe approach from the
ravine was through a deep, narrow gully,
and the steep embankments of the fort
Tbe last charge waa made about four P. M.,
by the whole rebel force, and was success

introduced them' to their wives, aod invited
tbem te dinner. They made room for them
at tbe ladies' table, and they aat down to
dinner, but it happened either by accident
or from a just idea of the fitness of things on
the part of our high spirited Captain, that at
that moment tbe signal bell for moving was
beard, and tbe rebel officers,, leaving their
soup untouched, skedaddled. Geo. Chal
mers, soliloquising as he hurried past your
correspondent that he had learned to mo as
well as to fight. In tbe conversation pre
ceding the dinner, Geo. Chalmers said he
did not countenance or encourage hs soldier
in killing captive negro soldiers, but it wss
right and juatifitb!e.
The rebel officers were generally well
clad, but bad very little to distinguish them
from the privates. General Chalmer bad
airoply a black feather in his hat, and tbe
other officers stripea oo their collars. Their
horses also were in fine condition and mucb
better than ours.
It was stated by some of tbe rebel officers
that they bad only about twenty-five color
ed prisonere, and tbey were old servants of
white omceis, add that all colored soldiers
were killed. This I believe to be true.
I have unquestionable authority for say
iog that at least three tiroes before the at
tack upon Fort Pillow, military authorities
in Memphis were notified that Forrest was
within forty mile of tbe Fort and preparing
, for an attack. Whv were oot re-eniorce-
menta sent up? One tbonsand infantry
would have rendered tbe post secure, and
the Fort is but seventy miles from Mem
phis. Where is Gen." Grierson7 Since h is

to attack him, retreated. Where is be now,
and what is he about? The country would
b9 glad to know.
Tbe wonnded bad laid out on the cold
ground from tbe close of the fight (five
o'clock Tuesday evening), until 10 the next
day, without the least attention beiog paid
to their sufferings or tbeir wants. .

Federal Enlistments In Ireland.
"On Saturday last 600 able-bodied vourig
men left tbe North Wall for; New York.
They had been collected from this city sod
tbs suburban districts, snd were brought to
the qoaya In grouse of four, 'ten, fifteen cr
twenty. Wherever in the neighborhood ot
Dublin laborers' work was Droceedin? there
the Federal agent appeared, picked out the
atrongest men, talked tbem over, and gene
rally succeeded In buying their lives. The
meu are not told in express words that the v

know very well what thev are ranuimd ta
do, and what they must do. They are os
tensibly engsged to work at the construction
of a railway for three months. The where,
abouts of the railway, we have been unable
to discover. Their passage, clothes, and
food are paid for, snd they are nominally
allowed a dollar a day until the expiration
of . the three months. Their account will
be settled, and tbe cost of their passage,
clothes, and keep, Is to be deducted from
the money due from the quarter's service
When that settlement - is made, the men
"may enlist in the Federal armies if they
please," or, if tbey prefer it, they may seek
work. The Northerners are s sharp people,
and they take good care that tbe "three
months men" must enlist iu tbe Federal
army to keep tbemielvng from orison.
For arriving at New York the 'emigrants'
are placed by themselves either on some is
land or in an isolated depot. While there
they must buy food, water, boots, and cloth
ing. They are charged ten dollars for what
ia worth two. Temptations are offered to
them of every kind. If tney have no money
so raoco the better. An accommodating
dealer io greenbacks attends every com

an enormous percentage. Oo tbe expiration

There never was devised a more iniqnit

never waa a wicked devica so successful.'
Misguided young men are hired and then

regularly enlisted, they have notbiog before

shock of battle, for they will be placed, as
usual, in tbe van or on the forlorn hope; or
death after lingering suffering, when tbey

or death by fever, which kills tbem off like
flies in pestilent hospitals, whose very walls
are impregnated with disease.
Out of every hundred men who leave
their sweethearts, their families, and their

From the citizens who came up from Fort
Pillow, on the Glendale, we glean some
interesting facts in regard to tbe late fight
at that p4ce:
They repoTt that the Fort never surren

rendering was made individually by tbe
men as the rebel soldiers approached them.
They saw Forrest himseTf, snd conversed

pounders and four 6-pouoders' and took six
guns that he captured at tbe Fort.
They state that tbey saw Forrest shoot
two of bis men who commenced plunder
ing before the place waa captured. After
they had complete possession of tbe place,
tbey commenced an indiscriminate pillage
of tbe place and tbe Inhabitants. .There
was about 9100.000 worth of goods there,
and they were all taken or burnt The
rage among the rebs was for cotton, cards
and boots, they seemed to prefer these to
everything else.

they were ronuing towards the river, after
