Pittsburgh Presbyterian Banner (Newspaper) - March 1, 1862, Pittsburgh, PennsylvaniaPresbyterian , March 1, 1862. Pittsburgh March 1, 1862. The Battle at it. Donelson. Fort Donelson proved to be a much stronger and Inore extensive work than was expected by our generals and was defended by a larger army the fighting on the 13th was More in Tho Ohara oter of recon nuisances than of a serious assault. Our generals were examining into the position and strength of their foe. But one of the gunboats had arrived and that one not till late in the Day. It then threw a few shells at this water Battery. The night was extremely unpleasant with rain and Snow and our troops being utterly without shelter buffered greatly. Friday was extremely cold. Our troops had found the enemy a fortification to be some six Miles in extent but had not found the parts where they might be assailed with the Best Prospect of Success. There was very Little done by the land forces this Day. The reinforcements which had arrived by the River were landed and arranged. The gunboats six in number having arrived engaged the water Battery but not with the Success which attended then at it. Henry. This was not owing so much to a superiority in the number and weight of the enemy a guns As to their position. At it. Henry they were All on a level Bank not much higher than the guns on our boats and Benee while the boats moved on to close quarters they could keep their Range and do steady execution on equal terms. But at it. Donel son the enemy a batteries were on a Hillside ranged in three tiers giving them great advantages. After two hours contest two of the Best boats were rendered unman Gable and floated Down Stream. All then withdrew. Friday night was cold and cheerless. The ground was covered with Snow and our men without tents. This in the presence of a Strong Fortis Littion and a numerous foe was adapted to make citizen soldiers accustomed to their warm houses soft Beds and Well spread tables think that warfare in its reality is no fun. But saturday was the Day of real trial. Gen. Grant on the retiring of the gunboats made up his mind to fortify his position besiege the rebels and await the repair and return of the boats. But the enemy preferred a speedier decision or an escape and hence resolved to pass their lines and assault general Grants right. Gen. Oglesby with five Illinois regiments discovered at Early Dawn that the enemy had transported several batteries to a portion of their works near to his lines. These batteries quickly opened upon him and at the same time some twelve thousand infantry and a cavalry charged. Gen. Oglesby maintained his position and was soon aided by Gen. Wallace with five other Illinois regiments and one Indiana. Get Mcarthur a brigade also advanced to the fight. The Battle raged with varying advantages for five hours when our men Weris obliged to retire. They had lost Schwarts s and Mcalister a batteries gained them and lost them a second time and their ammunition was expended. The superiority of the enemy a batteries had end bied him to maintain himself against our at this critical a moment grafts brigade comprising two Ohio regiments and the first Nebraska with Taylor a and Winder s batteries was brought up. There in a hard contest of three quarters of an hour pouring a storm of grape a Anster shrapnel and Musket and Rifle balls effectually cheeked the enemy s Advance. Gen. Grant then ordered a charge along the whole line putting Forward the troops which had suffered least in the previous part of the contest. Gen. Smiths command on our left had not yet been Mueh in action. It embraced Missouri Iowa Illinois and Indiana regiments. He was ordered to storm the enemy a right and he did it with a will. His storming party were one Indiana and two Wojtra regiments. The others he directed a Little to his ngut to Divide the attention of the enemy. He then at the head of the storming party advanced under a deadly fire but without firing a shot by his own men till he came Olese upon the enemy a works when with a tremendous Volley and a Bayonet charge he put the foe to flight and possessed that part of the fortification. Stones Battery and the residue of the division then advanced and the Lodgment was secured this assault by Gen. Smith was ordered at 8 of clock and was not Long in being exe outed. While Gen. Smith was thus engaged on or left Gen. Lew Wallace was arranging to recover what had been previously lost on the right. In this he was Soully Success Ful that by the close of the Day the enemy was driven again within the shelter of his earthworks thus ended the fight. Pillow and Floyd took a Midnight departure with All the troops some thousands they could carry on their steamers up the Cumberland and in the morning Gen. Buckner surrendered the place and the residue of his army. The number engaged m the Battle was not so great on either Side As some state Mente affirmed. Official reports Are not yet published. Gen Grant had about 30,000 men. The enemy had about 20,000, with the advantage of his fortifications. The number of prisoners taken m the fort was 13,300. To these 1000 were a added the next Day who came near the fort not knowing what had happened. The enemy regarded fort Donelson a vital Point. Hence his extensive works and concentration of men. He had there a Large a amount of Amati motion provisions and other stores and considered himself impregnable by any Force we could bring. He had even heralded his Victory. Thus we see the Richmond inquirer of monday quoted a a splendid Victory at fort Donel so n. A the War department received a did Patch on yesterday from Gen. A. S Johnston giving an account of the Battle at fort Donelson on saturday last. The Neiby having completely invested our lines it was resolved to attack them. Our line a wore formed and the attack made at Hall past five of clock on saturday morning. Gun our left Wing Gen. Buckner put right and Gen fiddy with Gen. Johnston not a. A in the Centre Gen. Floyd As senior brigadier being in command of the whole a the Battle lasted for nine hours and was fought with the greatest gallantry by our troops. The enemy were first beaten by Gen. Pillow on our left Wing who drove the enemy a fight to the rear of their left Wing. The enemy were finally driven from the Field with the loss of 1,240 killed and wounded of whom 1,000 were killed. We also took 300 prisoners and six pieces of artillery. Our loss in killed and wounded is about 500. A this splendid feat of arms and glorious Victory to our cause will Send a thrill of Joy Over the whole confederacy. It comes at place and at the right time 1 All Honor to the Brave Effie Era and soldiers who have shed such it Fostre upon our arms and added such prestige to our Flag we shall Delight to publish the full details when they shall reach us. What farther we Are to expect on the same ground we know not. Perhaps before this Issue goes to press the Telegraph will Tell. The Cumberland River affords the enemy great facility for bringing up reinforcements from their Point d App i at Paducah at the Mouth of the Tennessee. Our own commanders Are not beyond the Means of similar support. We Trust therefore that the stand so brilliantly commenced we shall be Able to make permanent and to Roll Back the tide of it they had a right to rejoice at such a report to their government from their commander in chief but sad for them it a was like Many of their reports untrue. What a thrill of horror must have supplanted their Joy a few hours later when they would learn that they were completely b Aten the fort with All its property and 13,800 men surrendered we have not yet seen any reliable state mint of the killed and wounded on either Side. A report said to be Semi official puts Bur loss at 300 killed 700 wounded and 241 missing total 1,250. The fighting qualities on both sides were Here pretty Well tried. The contest was continued for Many Long hours. Masses were engaged. There were alternations of Victory. Batteries were taken and retaken Thero were Bayonet charges. The Extension of the enemy a lines and his advances on saturday and also the nature of the ground it being Hilly and wooded afforded much scope for generalship. In numbers we a bad the superiority of about three to two and some superiority also in arms. He had the advantage of fortifications and in the freshness of his men they resting at night in their shelters with All their Camp comforts around them while our men for successive nights had lain out in the rain Snow and frosts uncovered. Their defeat was due in part to their concentrated Effort upon our right. This weakened their own right by which Gen. Smith was enabled to take that part of their fortifications and they having pursued our men without their works were obliged to fight on that Wing on an Equality where they were finally repulsed. Saturday thus ending with Ohr right in its original position and our left within their works made defeat on the next Day certain and to save a useless Slaughter they rejoice in the Victory but still How Mournful is the necessity what sorrowing households North and South Over the slain and the maimed 1 a the War policy.

The Celebration saturday feb. 22d, the anniversary of the birth of Washington and the Day set apart for rejoicing on. Account of our recent victories was observed in Pittsburgh with Many patriotic demonstrations. The weather was pleasant the people cheerful and everything passed off delightfully. The part taken by the Public schools was one of the pleasant and important features of the Day. In Pittsburgh three Points were fixed where the pupils led by their teachers assembled.

Indeed All the offices consumed a a Power of powder a and a regular bombardment was kept up Between the chronicle and dispatch boys and those on the Gazette and custom House roofs which attracted immense efficiency of the blockade. The idea expressed by Earl Russel and other foreigners British and French that our blockade of the Southern ports is not effective is rather ludicrous. If not effective Why is Cotton a kept Back so that sorely a Bale gets to. Market. If there was no blockade Cotton would to almost As cheap m England As in new Orleans Only a a half Penny to a Penny difference but now it is three times the Price. All foreign productions also would be very nearly the same Price in Southern ports As in Northern a but now they Are two times five times and in some cases ten times As dear.

The que exp a speech on foreign and Domestic relations. My lords and gentlemen a we Are commanded by her majesty to assure you that her majesty is persuaded that you will deeply participate in the affliction by which her majesty has been overwhelmed by the Yalap Yitous untimely and irreparable loss of her beloved Consort who has been her Comfort Aud it Japport.

Her majesty s relations with All the european Powers continue to be Friendly and satisfactory and her majesty trusts there is no reason to apprehend any disturbance of the peace of Europe. A question of great importance and which might have led to very serious a consequences arose Between her majesty and the government of the United states of North America owing to the seizure and forcible removal of four passengers from on Board a British mail packet by the com minder of a ship of War of the United states. That question has been satisfactorily settled by the restoration of the passengers to British Protection and by the disavowal by the United states government of the a of violence committed by their naval officer. The Friendly relations Between Here majesty and the president of Tacq a nit a st feeds a be the Fern Lwe unimpaired. Her majesty willingly appreciates the loyalty and patriotism which have been manifested on this occasion majesty a North american sub jets. A the wrongs committed by various parties and by successive governments in Mexico upon fori Eigners resident within the mexican territory and for which no satisfactory redress could be obtained have led tothe conclusion of a convention Between her majesty the emperor of the French and the Queen of Spain for the purpose of regulating combined operations on the coast of Mexico with a View to obtain that redress which has hitherto been withheld.

The Queens speech to parliament is always drawn up by the ministers. It is made Brief and gives but an indefinite statement of affairs and the address is usually but an Echo of the speech. It however affords an Opportunity to utter the leading members. In discussing the add was on the late occasion several speeches were made on american affairs. /. Lord Dufferin pointed out the ties of interest and parentage which1 bind us to the United states and expressed his approval of the attitude the government had assumed from the commencement of the civil War which was ruining and Deso lating that country. He regarded the disputes which had Arisen Between the Northern and Southern states As the result of an incompatibility of temper but at the same time he believed a that her majesty a government in the Wise precautions they had taken to preserve the commercial interests of the. Nation and to main Fain unimpaired the prestige of our naval prowess received the full sympathies of every British subject. Earl approved the Modera Tion of the course taken by her majesty a government and the Confidence that course Kadsuo needed in establishing in the country generally. Lord Derby try and opposition though he approved of the course the government had taken in reference to the american difficulty he thought they ought to be cautious. They entered upon negotiations which had for their object an Kufera Ionin the principles upon which International Law was now regulated. They must not forget they had a deep and Prepend rating a interest in maintaining the rights of belligerents and thia country was not one which could lightly sacrifice the legitimate rights which they now possessed in that re Speet. ,. Earl Russell stated that there could be no doubt from the rapid successes which had attended the efforts of the confederates to break the blockade that it Quot was of a most ineffectual character. At the same time the government had no desire to press hardly on the Northern states but he hoped that they would be Able themselves to Settle their difficulties with the South. Whether this struggle ended in the total a disruption or in More Friendly cementing the Union her majesty is government would feel Liat they had done their duty to both aides by preserve ing a strict neutrality. 1 the Boulogne messenger say for. Commissioner Slidell that very expensive gentleman for England arrived Here by the priv be Maude on thursday last. The wretched weather prevented Many of the habitual attendants from being on the Quay when the boat arrived and those few who were there did not know a that at least,#1,000,000 was passing them in wet clothes and cold aspect. Or. Slidell went direct to the station and proceeded by the first train to Paris a j or. Yancey went out As a passenger in the West India mail Steamer seme which sailed from Southampton on the 3d, for st. its Issue of the 5th, the London times is emphatic in favor of no intervention in the american question or with the blockade. It says in regard to the latter Quot a if we ask the Federal states to let Cotton come out of the Southern ports it must be on the ground that blockades a a no longer tolerable and ought to lib abolished like Privateering. The partisans of this Orange in the Law of War assert that the restriction on the Trade ought to relate Only to goods contraband of War and that at All times the ports of a belligerent state ought to be left open to neutrals who should be free to Trade just As m time of peace. It to such a doctrine we must give a firm opposition the idea of abolishing blockade seems to us one that can Only keep its place m a mind incapable of logical reasoning that two nations should Strug Gie to overcome each other and that yet each should bind itself to interfere in no Way with the Trade which makes its enemy capable of resistance seems to us an Absurdity too great for Senou s discussion. The right of putting a Stop to All the Commerce of the enemy whether by land or sea is necessary to the carrying on of War and can never be relinquished. Or. Cobden and those who think with him Reem to imagine that there is a great difference Between the practice in the two cases a but it is certainly not so.
