To discern Between Good and evil but having friends a beloved la Send. And parents an Intelli Pic topics come thick and fast upon us scarce has the Echo of rejoicing Over the capture of fort Donelson died away when the achievement at Island no. 10 is heralded through the land. The Gibraltar of the rebels has fallen. It was deemed impregnable but the invincible bravery of the Union troops overcame every obstacle and the hag of our coun try Waves triumphant Over thu stronghold of rebel Doin. Connected with this capture is the successful operations of Gen. Pope in crossing the Mississippi River in Tho Raco of the enemy s batteries capturing them securing the rear of their forces cutting off their Retreat and taking six thousand prisoner8,Amon which Are Many officers of rank. The Way to Memphis is now without serious obstructions a but two forts on the River have yet to be silenced and that City fells into our the excitement is great at that Point and it is said a determination is expressed to Burn the City before surrendering it however we do not think the threat will be carried into of let for men must indeed be who can Burn their own Homes and in ave their families shelter less. We predict that they will on thu approach of the Union army hoist the stars and Stripen and claim and receive the Protection of the Federal government. But we rejoice that our arms have been signally Success fill at Pittsburg the great Battle or the War has been fought at that Point. Beauregard with a prac iced Eye saw the importance of attacking general Grant before general Bull with Bis army arrived his subject being to Cut off the Forse or Gen. Grant and then prepare to contend against Gen. Bull to accomplish this be marched his army from Corinth up it a our troops at Pittsburg Landing but happily two divisions of Gen. Buell s Prce arrived in time to participate in the action after a Singo Inary contest the rebels were routed and retreated Back to Corinth pursue by the Gallant of merits Over whom waved the proudest and noblest Banner the world Ever saw the Standard Emblem Attica of the american Union. Thus the War in Tennessee and Missouri is closed and the Onward tread of the Valliant warriors of the West is southward. Buell has now taken off his morning gown we Hope to leave it off girded on his sword and in company with Grant will soon pass through the state of ,and will be thundering at the Gates of new Orleans. When shall the Blest morn break upon the land when the Sun of peace will Rise in godlike grandeur and Ita Bright nys di>per8e Tho Clouds that now Darken our National Hor Rizun announcing to the people who inhabit this goodly land that their repose from civil War never shall again be broken having passed its dreadful it Aucon they shall forever i or the abundant fruits of happiness and unexampled pros Rity which flow from the Union As the sure guarantee of a nation s Grea lir is.

He is convicted of uttering sentiments of Defiance fur Law and the government. He docs not and his friends will not have the a blushing latest Landing. and wounded. I can get no estimate or Tho killed and wounded but it was immense. Some or our regiments had not above 150 or 200 left. Gen. Prentiss was wounded and captured during the first attack by the rebels on sunday morning. He was in the Field a moment after the attack and displayed conspicuous bravery in rallying and leading his men. He had just led a Galent charge Matibe head of amt a thousand men who were repulsed and driven headlong Back by Superior gon. Prentiss acc lived a mud act wound in the Arm and his horse was killed. Before he could escape the enemy were upon bin and he has not been heard from since. 1 am informed on reliable authority direct from the rebel Camp that Beaure Giu made his i Lance on frit to to a Point within a Lew mile or Gram s posit Ion. He brine in Battle Ai a and during the night resumed the March coming upon our forces at Daybreak and completely surprising them. The Only wonder or that a rout did not ensue at once. Our men were too Well tried however to imbibe panic from the most unexpected Surprise end they retired in the Best of order. Gen. Hurlbirt. Whose division was in Reserve made himself the main Proton which the for tunes of the Day rested. He acted with the utmost promptness and the keenest judgment and to him As i am reliably informed is due the credit of sustaining our broken columns when defeat was imminent he supported Prentiss and Sherman divisions when they were on the Point of breaking and held the enemy steadily in Check during the entire Forenoon. By his timely action the Centre was saved and the Fortune of the Day turned in our Lavor. Gin. A. S. John Ston was killed on the mom ing of the second Day durin a the attack on his position by our forces under Gen it rals Nel son Hurlbut and Sherman under whose command was also placed the division of Gen. Prentiss already a prisoner in the enemy s hand. The Battle it this Point was perfectly terrific. Oer forces were precipitated upon the enemy like an Avalanche. They fought As desperate men fight determined to Crown themselves with glorious Victory or die on the Field of bottle. When they met the enemy fese to face it was with wild shouts which rang above the Roer of Cannon and rattle of musketry. No body or men could have withstood the fierce Onset and with but a feeble resistance the rebels broke and fled in disorder. Gen. Johnston strove to Ralley them and of i Yon May Mac of the Roar u Faie. A a coca Roi Sivu of you May sing of the Rosy wine. A As its sparkling Babbles Rise. And sip its 8weeu As a gift divine.

A determined charge recovered. A portion of Mcallister s and waterhouse s batteries were most and also recovered. The entire Minnesota Battery was once in Possession of the enemy.

A by the president of the United states. Whereas it has pleased almighty Ghod to vouchsafe signal victories to the land and naval forces engaged in super ing an internal rebellion and a the same time to Avert from our smoke. The result was the dismounting and silencing of the enemy s guns and the Complete up heaving of their already disordered columns. It Only needed the desperate charge which Gen. Grant made at this monent to Complete the Victory. This charge was the decisive Effort of the Day. Calling together some six thousand soil ices the regiments i am not now familiar withe placed members of Bis staff in command at different Point and himself took the Lead. With a firm steady step they advanced into the storm of musketry and artillery fire that awaited them.
