The hardest fighting and the decisive blows were made on saturday. We copy from the st Louis Democrat the details of that Day s work. It is very inter Seetin g saturday. Saturday which was destined to witness tie grand denouement of the tragedies which had a scene about Donelson was cold Dalip and cheerless. Our troops however had hut Little time to cogitate upon the weather or any other subject Ere they were called upon to attend to More serious matters. The enemy during the night had Tram fitted several of their batteries to portions of their works within a few Hundred feet of which our extreme right Wiota was resting. Upon the first coming of Dawn these Batter ies suddenly opened on the ninth eight event Twenty ninth thirtieth and thirty fir st regiments comprise in of Riesby s bri Gade and who bad the Advance. Simultaneously with the opening of the batteries a Force of about twelve thousand infantry and a regiment of cavalry was hurled against the which made against less steady and troops robust surely have resulted in their entire demolition. Sudden and unexpected a3 was the Bally on the part of the enemy it did not cud the Gallant Lollino asians unprepared to meet them. Ine attn ii was mane in columns of regi ments which poured in non the Little baud from no less than three different directions. Every regiment of the brigade found itself opposed to three and in Many cases to no less than four different regiments. Undis Mayer however by the greatly Superior Force of the enemy and unsupported by Ade quate artillery the brigade not Only held their own but upon two occasions actually drove the rebels fairly into their entrench tents but Only to be pressed Back again into their former position until at last hav in g expended every round of their ammunition they were obliged to retire and give Way to the advancing regiments of col. W. H. L. Wallace s brigade of the eleventh twentieth seventeenth forty fifth. Forty eight h Illinois and forty int h Indiana regiments. Here again was the Battle continued with redoubled vigor now one Side and now another giving Way. Our troops fought with the coolness of veterans Aud the desperation of devils. I would not diminish the gallantry of our own troops by saying that the enemy did not fight bravely and Well. They did both. An exact by tement of the varying fortunes of the Field for three or four hours following the first attack it is impossible at present to definitely present. Suffice it to say our troops ought and not Only fought and fought courageously but fought coolly an scientifically. In the thick est of the fight where officers had to re move the dead bodies of their men out of the Way of the backward wheels regiments coolly performed Maneu vers which Scott a his tactics pronounces impossible to be made on the Battle Fiel d. The Batte for the most part was fought in a Forest with a thick undergrowth beneath and regiments acted mostly on the principle of hitting a head wherever it could be found. Swarming on a 1 sides of them they were not at a loss to find to been. One regiment wag Only driven from before them when another sprung no to take its place and there is hardly a regiment of the Force engaged but was opposed to trip e its numbers. Thus went the tide of Battle for four hours now gaining a Little but upon the whole obliged to retire. Officers and men dropped upon All sides. Field officers were borne killed and wounded from the Field and their next in command coolly took their place and continued the fight. Lieutenant colonel White of the thirty first lieutenant Colone l Smith of the forty eight lieutenant colonel Irvin of the twentieth and major Post of the eighth Illinois and scores of company officers Ere killed All gallantly leading on their men. Colonels Logan Lawler and Ransom were wounded but yet firm in their determination never to yield. And still with unyielding courage the Gal Lant Illinois aos Aud Indian wins would not acknowledge themselves vanquished. When the last Cartridge hid been expended and orders were Given to retire for other regi ments to take their place soldiers grim with smoke and powder would angrily inquire for what and beg to be allowed to use the Bayonet. But it was not in the Power of mortal men occupying the position ours did and exposed to Euch a raking artillery fire As the enemy subjected them to to maintain their ground against the overwhelming Force which the rebels continued to pub against them. Oil Tiv a w. H. L. Wallace s and car. Thur brigades were successively obliged to retire a portion of Schwatz s and Mcallis ter s batteries bad been lost and gained and lost again and it was not until the advancing enemy had reached Craft s brigade and Taylor s and Willard i batteries could be brought into action that we were Able to Stem the tide. These two batteries outdid themselves. Grape cannister and shrapnel and an uninterrupted musketry fire from the first Nebraska forty eight and fifty eighth Ohio proved too much for the so far victorious toe and they at last were obliged to retire. By this time it was noon. General Grant bad just returned from the Landing where he bad a conference with Commodore Foote. That officer had informed he general theft it was impossible for him to put his gunboats in a condition to make another attack for several Days at least. Notwithstanding this upon being informed of the severe repulse our troops had met with in the morning he saw that some immediate action on our part was necessary to retrieve the Day. He immediately gave orders to his generals of divisions to prepare for an immediate and general attack along the entire lines. The regiments which had suffered most severely in the morning were withdrawn. General Lew. Wallace was Given a division composed of two regiments of his own brigade the eighth Missouri and eleventh Indiana and several other regiments whose loss in the action of the morning bad been but slight and was Given the Job of Clearing the ground we bad inst in the morning while general Smith commanding the left received orders to storm the works under which his division general Smith s assault. General Smith is emphatically a fighting Man and. As my be imagined the events of the morning had tendered to decrease in no it Yrure his Pugna City. When he received his Long desired orders for an assault of the enemy s works his eyes glistened with a fire which could it have been seen by his aligners would have left them in no doubt As to his private feelings in regard to the present contest. All the arrangements were Complete by three o clock and his column was put in motion soon after. The Force under his command was As follows col. Cook s brigade seventh Illinois gift it the do., twelfth Iowa thirteenth Missouri fifty second Indiana. Col. Laumen a brigade second Iowa seventh Iowa fourteenth Iowa Twenty gift h Indiana fifty sixt Indiana. Undercover of Captain Stone s Missouri Battery this Force began the assault. It was a formidable undertaking which under a less Brave and skillful commander than Gen. Smith might have proved a disastrous fail ure. The Hills at this Point Are among the most precipitous of those upon which the enemy were posted. Selecting the second and seventh Iowa and the fifty secon d Indi Ana for the storming party general Smith it fleeced the main portion of his division to the right and having succeeded in engaging the attention of the enemy at this paint himself headed the storming party and advanced non the works from his extreme left. It a a Moat magnificent sight. By the perfect storm of bullets which rained about him the general on horseback and with his hat on the paint of Bis sword preceded his troops and inspired them Wilk a furore there was no withstand ing. Steadily with unbroken line the Gallant Hawk Eves add Indian its advanced. The enemy s grape and cart Nister cams blowing through their ranks but not Ashot was fired in return. Closing of the ranks As one after another of the Brave Fellows dropped to the Earth Ard animated by the fearless sex Traple of their undaunted Leader they pressed steadily on. The works gained one tremendous Volley was poured into the astonished enemy and with fixed bayonets a charge was made into their ranks which there was no withstanding. They fled in contusion Over the Hills and at last we had penetrated the rebel Job Stool and the misfortunes of the morning were retrieved. Captain Stone s Battery which in the mean time had been doing tremendous execution in the rebel Runks was promptly advanced to the Posi Tion gained and instantly supported by the remainder of his division the Point was secured against any Force Tho enemy could Bertg to Bear against it. Gun. Law. Wallace s attack on tug bight. In the mean time Gen. Lew. Wallace had completed his preparations fur an attack on the enemy occupy Itig the position he had wrested from us in the morning some two Miles Abd a half to the right. Just As his column was being put in motion a Mesener Arr Vea with the Joyful tidings that limn was Misue 01 me Niren Ruments. Y Ith a cheer that refunded far Ami near the irresistible eighth Missouri and eleventh Indiana which occupied the front advanced on the double Quick k into the encounter they bad so Long been seeking. These two regi ments from their superiority a Drill and fighting capacities have been considered a crack corps and most nobly did they up hold to the letter their enviable reputation. They did not Tarry Lone to bother with powder and Ball but with a shout of itself Ternna enough to Appal their toes Nave them the cold steel with a will which will Long be remembered.

Valiantly sup ported by the first Nebraska thirteenth Missouri and other regiments of colonel to Bayer s and crafts brigades a steady and Vance wbb made until by dusk the ground which had been so hotly contested in the morning was ours again and once More the rebels were forced to seek the protecting Shadow of the earthworks. The effect of these successes upon the army was electrical six hours before with gun boats disabled and the enemy a Possession of n portion of our gound the position of affairs was gloomy indeed. But now All was changed. Elated with Victory and the knowledge that at last they had obtained a foothold in the enemy s fortification and Savage at the thought of the privations they Bud encountered and at being so Long walked in the Possession of their prey officers and men alike clamoured Foran immediate assault that night. General Grant however mindful of the risks attending such an operation even with troops exhibiting such Veteran characteristics As Thule under Bis command had displayed Witt postponed the final coup de main till the coming of the Morrow s Light. What the Morrow brought Forth and Bow the rebels worn out and dispirited by the protracted Belea Germent concluded to give no their stronghold and Lay Down their arms is already Well known. The More detailed particulars of the surrender of fort Donelson and its cordon of Field work the departing mail allows me no time to speak of. G. W. B.

Goni the rebel officers adapt need at fort Donelson admit that if Nashville is taken the rebellion in Tennessee has gone there is no doubt of it gone no beyond the Power of All the spirits in the vasty deep of rebel Dom to Call Down again.

It is stated that in Many places in Missouri the members of the Church South Are inquiring for the former paths and declare that their connection with that disloyal Church is Sev ered in fact if not in form and they Are wait ing patiently for an Opportunity of entering the fold from which they were separated in 1844. Though the rebel authorities refused u let commissioners Ames Aad fish pass within their lines on the Mission of men y assigned them by the Secretary of War they came Back with an important proposition from those authorities. It is to release All our prisoners on parole for Exchange a future a proposition which will be immediately accepted by our government As in accordance with the Well know n Neiges of War.

They Are the luxury of the Day and in reality the most modest material com poses a charming Robe when it is tastefully ornamented with passament Erie braid ruching ribbon or other trimming. The Talent of the dressmaker consists in these ornaments but the chief Merit lies in the Novelty and every exception worthy of approval is pretty. The predominant materials for ladies dresses for toilet Are mores Antiques Sand Colore a Violet dark Green Chestnut shot with White White Boot with Black and Black with White Fawn coloured and Magenta Silks embroidered with White Flowers and for very grand occasions White Light Blue Light Pink Aud steel Gra y satins. Of course the stuffs Here mentioned do not include those frequently chosen for dresses for balls and soirees for which the lightest gauges tulle embroidered Tarla tans and especially the gaze de Chambery still continue in High favor. Apropos of chapeaux for the present month there is something in the Way of improvement to mention. The Interior crowns which bad become much too exalted have resumed the proportions that Good taste and refinement can approve. Should the ornamentation consist of but a single Flower it is no longer worn Over the Middle of the forehead but a Little on one aide which is preferable.

The following remarkable editorial from the Richmond exam our of february 0 shows How deplorable is the state of affairs in the once quiet and sleepy capital of Vir Ginia. This is a fair Sample of that Golden age which was promised As the immediate fruit of secession the Rowdy ism now Riff in this City has become intolerable and demands immedi ate suppression with he High Haud. Acts of brutal violence vulgar Ruff Janis and Gross indecency Are of momentary occurrence in our streets. The most orderly citizen and the most delicate lady Are exposed to out rage and insult. No Man s life even is secure in Broad Daylight on our Public thoroughfares. To surround Knock Down Bruise and maltreat has become Tho pastime of the Rulli that throng our pavements. The evil must be suppressed or else society must Render its authority. We must disorganized society resolve ourselves into Savages and prepare for Protection by the effective weapons of or else we must assert Tho Power of the Law tip Nothe persons of the ruffians and Vaga. Bonds that infest our streets and big Fiance should be required of the Pelicci and a larger constabulary employed. Every Street Corner should be maimed by n policeman in uniform aimed to the Teeth whistle in hand pre Pai to rally a dozen colleagues in the in Stant of disturbance. The License Money arising from the rapid increase of Gro shops would seem appropriately employed in invigorating the police. If hese furnaces of hell fir e Are allowed to dispense at every Corner what not merely intoxicated but crazes surely Tho revenues which they pay into the City Treasury should be expended in protecting the valuable lives which they imperil and in restoring the order which they disturb. The City by tolerating a thousand Dens of Iuliu Tiitu and passion owes the duty to ifs population of Agio ring it Protection from the dangers and outrages thus engendered and pre pared. The time has arrived for vigilance and summary Reform or else Ruffia ism theft arson drunkenness Aud murder will soon claim the City As their exclusive pre serve. In another column of the examiner we find the following extraordinary statement on which it is not necessary to remark at All a few nights ago the gamblers of Rich mond held a convention in this City and after Tho fashion of the Noble refrigerators of Congress transacted their business in secret session. We Are informed that one Hundred and fifty members of the gambling and plug fraternity were present that fifty thousand dollars were voted and subscribed As a fund to carry the next election for mayor and that the candidate nominated As Likely to unite the gambling and Rowdy interests of Richmond is an ungrammatical grocer and whisky Wor of the name of David j. San Ders. We Are very much of the opinion that if matters Are not speedily bettered in Richmond the gamblers plugs and the retired and unsavoury Whitty dealer they propose As their candidate will be in the bands of a vigilance committee before the Date of the next municipal election. For the daily press a National clothing and Supply Bureau for soldiers. Editor feb h4. I see by a Washington telegraphic dispatch of the 13th, that the military Board of inspectors have Coade maed Twenty five e thousand soldiers Coats de by swindling contractors a new York and Philadelphia. The extent to which this system of swindling in clothing con tracts has been carried on Calls loudly for a Radical Reform in this Branch of expenditure. It was the Public press of the country that called attention to the enormous waste of government Money bestowed on favor ites for executing the Publio printing and now we witness a Reform in that Branch which saves is millions a year. The government now has its own printing office and employs a competent superintendent at a reasonable salary. Now Why not organize a clothing and Supply Bureau at Washington with superintendents in every City where work is to be executed open government shops and employ tailors and sewing women at fair prices and thereby get rid of those swindling con tractors who make it their business to cheat the government with their shoddy clothing and oppress their workmen by their miserably Low wages 1 Bop the daily press a a Friend to the Labouring Community and an opponent of every species of government swindling will rail attention to this important matter until those in authority shall not Only hear but heed it. Some May think As ther is a Good pros Peot at this time of putting Dows the rebel lion at an Early Day it will do away with the necessity of taking this step. A Large num Ber of troop will be required Long after the close of the War and it is not unlikely that after to Southern Serpent has entirely ceased to its Tail we May seek a quarrel with a certain Power that bantered The american Board of commissioner for foreign missions have within a few weeks received several donations from citizens of the old town of Taunton.
