Tho Storming1 of Fort TJoneLion,
The X. Y. U'orlJ't nrmy correspondent nt
Fort Donclion gives the following graphic
description of tlic storming of that fort : ,
" The task of accomplishing Ihc delicate nnd
dangerous enterprise of taking Fort Donelson
by Btorm, was accorded to Gen. Smith. Ocn.
McClcrnand liad tried it thrice nnd fulled, not
for want of pluck or men, but tho position of
the enemy was better delendcd nnd less easily
approached, although more easily seen. Tlic
tatk fell into able handt. Homo impntalons
have before now been thrown upon Ucncrul
Smith' loyally by malicious rivals, but yes
terday did the general not only Indicate his
loyalty, but tils ability nnd skill to wield uu
nrmy of soldiersto wlcldtlicm easily and to
wield Hum well. His division was divldid
for the titiaek Into two brigades one under
Col. Cook, Including the 7th lllimiin, 12th
Iowa. 13th Missouri, fiOth Illinois, und fi'Jd
Indintm; the other under Col, Laumuu with
the 2d, Till unit 1-lth Iuwo, 'J5th ludiuun uml
Klili Mioiirl.
Col. Cook trok the right or the attack,
mmuchig the centre of the enemy's position.
Opposed tolhein wire six Tennewee regiments,
eoinmiinditl by Cols. Saggs, llally, Head,
Qtintlcs, Ilrowuund Coomb', with the 'Jd Ken
tucky Ileglment. Col. Cook took tils men
straight up the side siT the hill nt the highest
portion or the formications uml Ihc far.lusi
removed from tlic river. The rcghmnts went
up the stdrs of the hill, nnd then encountered
the barricade or fclleit limber and brudiwond.
'I'ke enemy's Infantry kept a ruin of fire upon
them. A 111 pound gun in battery poured
down gmpc and shell upon them, not, how
ever, with very fatal tfu.ct. The men stood it
without flinching, tlic line remaining unbro
ken. In accordance wilh the plan of attack.
It was drcided that the brigade of Col. Cook
should ingago the ciwiny on Ihc right, while
I.iuman's brigade should make the entree into
the works further on the left. lie kept up uu
IikvsmiiI fire or iiifuulry. engaging the Ten
nivstcuns, who were loTvly fiiscoucid behind
the earthworks. Uu the right, however, lay
an open spaa, up which climbed the brigade
id Uiuman. The 2d Iowu leil the charge, fol
lowed by tlic rest In llieir order. The sight
wus sublime. Onward they sped, hccdltM of
the b'illtls nnd balls of the em my above. The
hill was so steep, Ihc limber clcuriil, lluil
the rebels had kit 11 gap In their line or lille
pits on thin crcU or hill. Through this gap
they were bound lo go. Itight up they went.
CltlUlltllg lip Oil nll-fimtivlicll Uiie.ur lllh-
blue elutliing udvuueliig regularly forward, (he
while line or tiuoku fn-m the top of the winks
oppn.ed by 11 line from our troop.
They truth the tup ! Nnmlier full. The
siisjH-irte Is lirenlhlissi Siv, tliey 0II111I1 over
the works! They fall tliey ure hat! Another
group, and still another mid unollier, clive up
llicgnp! All is coven d with smoke! The
Imlgciiunl Is made the troop iwnrm up the
hillside, their bright bayonets glittering in the
sun. The firing slackens. Wlml is more
wnmlirfiil Is, that Copt. Stone's battery ol
rlll'il 10-pounilers, cloo behind the brigade, b
lugging up the hill, the horses plunging nnd
rider whipping. Upward they go, wheiv
never vehicle went belorc, up the precipitous
uml clogged sides or thu hill. No sooner on
the crest thuu the guns ure unlimbert-d, the
men nt their posts. JYrcibiou shells 11 ml
canister ore shot spitefully Irom tho J'.irrot
guns at the flying enemy. The day is gained
u piultiun Is tuken the troops surround the
guns, nnd the enemy 1ms deserted his post.
The .'ll.pnuniKr which had caused so much
luvoo Is silenced by Col. Cook's llrigade, and
the rebels fly to tlic main fort in uluiin. The
day is gaintd ! The foo is running ! Cheers
upon cheers rend the air, aud iu u few minutes
all is limited.
In the m.dU of nil this warm woilt there
rod tliu while haired (Jen. Smith, his suowy
mustaches standing out like bustles, his hand
wuvlug miji-slieally, Ids Inuring erect ni.it
proud undaunted by thu deadly hull, und

of Ini point, his batteries placed, the enemy's
guns ure turned upon lliun, und he ordered
his reserve Into line wilh nil the coolness uf u
Hannibal. An oillr conns lo him of more
troops. Thank you gentlemen; I think we
havu already more tlmn enough,' 1a inly re
plies the (Jinerul, and Iu fiftein minutes the
lines wus deposed or nir Ihc night. 'I'lie lo
1 1 our farces wus small compand to Ilia uniout
of tiring. Our lord in thu storming of the
wotks will not e.eed g()u hilkdnml tvoundid.
That or the iiieiny must have Ufn qt least
that number, notwithstanding that they wen'
entrenched behind breast works.
Wliut follownl may bo told in n few words.
Tim enemy seeing that we had guinul one
or his strongest positions, tuccwsfully nputsui
him in Ids iiitut daring pltemplii to rube
the siege, took advnntngo or the darkness,
call.d a council ol war, in which it was deter
mined to surrender. With ull the basic ios-
sible some 7.000 troops wpro dispatched up the
river by night. The rebel Hens. Floyd and
I'illow made their c.cupe. The fort, with all

FottT DnNRMOX, Twin., Feb. 17, 18C2.
My Dear Fttther : Sad, lonely, ond down
hearted, I nltcmp't to write you a few line, to
let you know that I nm unhurt. We have
had n most bloody fight ; there must hnvc
been fire thousand to seven thousand men
killed and wounded on both tides. Hut tho
enemy surrendered on Snlurdny evening, wi
having taken thirteen thousand prisoners.
Hut, dear rather, the hardest part of ihcstwy
is, that out ofilghty-nvc men In my compmiy,
only seven cunic out tlic most wholrtulc
slaughter that was evir heard of.
.Nly company wrw tlic color company, nt
which tlic rebels took particular nlm ; ns fast
ns ono man who carrlrd'lt would be shot nn
other would lake his place, but the Uug was
brought through. Only one hundred nnd six
teen men remain In the 11th lligimciil unin
jured.
Do not wonder, dear fattier, Hint I nm
down-heartdl. My bnys nil loved me, and
need I say that, in looking at the poor rem
u.iUt of my company the men that 1 have
tnkiu so much pains to drill ; the men that 1
thought so much or, now nearly all Iu their
u'mvcs I feel nulauclioly. Hut I do not com
plain ; Und spartd my life, und for what, the
future must tell. 1 will write you rnnn nguln.

on the edicts nf the recent glorious I-derul
victories, thus uloses 1111 article :
One by one, their strongholds have fallen, and
the Union Imsts an' In the heart of Sieessin.
Hut what a change iu the tone or the rebel
journals. Despair is written over their doors
and breathed in their columns, und the nut
unit result or despulr Is nckletsness, and they
fuoliflily talk of fighilug until the last man ex
pires, und, says one journal : " If this country
(.Southern Cuufitleraey) Is to escape the ml.
irlisofu protractul wur which may render
the Confederacy it hell on earth, this wnr
should be made one or cxtcrndn,',,"-" T,,r
hive mrsercral iiecnlnns tailed thebtack'llag,
but thu while has euch tlmu soon after fol
low 11I it. The tenders of tho rcliclHon vainly
flatter themselves that the South cannot be
eonipicrul Just us If iuulhern men were nu
exception to ull general rules ; just as If they
were not iinslbte beings, and gnVcrned by the
same circumslniicrs us any other people.
When liny dud thilr cause is gone, like any
other ieople of common seme, they will grace
fully submit to tho (iovcrmueut they vainly
thought lo overthrow, notwithstanding the in
sane ravings of ttieir lenders who co visions
of the halkr looming up but n littlu wny in
tin dlsiancc. 'I'heir paM-rs tell u thut ahrudy
traitors and lories" (Union men) till their
sin-cts uml invite the hinder to their rivers
and coasts. 'I'htsc same " truitors and lories"
(Union men) will increase nnd uceumulute, and
maku liieiiisi Ives known as fust as the oppres
sivo ami grinding nuarciiy wliieli keeps them
down is broken, by Hie presence of Federal
troops. Thu tdeu thut rebels cannot bo con
quered, and that llio Federal Government can
never again extend Its authority over South
tm soil, Is ull u lurec. The people or the
North und South will know each other better
uflir the close of the war ; they will roped
each other more, for the Smith will leurn tl ni
the true chivalrous spirit Is not confined to the
territory south nf Mason nnl Dixon's line,
und that llio great North is not composed of
a race of flunkeys, but rattier ir n ieople n
chivalrous uml bravo as tiny on the face ol the
earth.
Tun Daiik D.w at Hiciimonh. If the sol
emn farce of the inauguration ut Hiehmond,
which desecrated thu blrthil iy of Wusliington,
had been suddenly urrested by the appearance
of a Xutlomil army, we doubt whether the
dismay und gritf of the cliief participants would
huvo liven greater than they really werc.nn the
pwi'inu, by the bursting nf llio storm in
nuother qn irtcr. It seems altogether proba
ble tlut at tlic very hour nppslutcd lor (he
ceremonies, t'10 Fresi.lent elected wus apprised
liy Ulegrapli or the occupation or the Cnpltnl
Tennessee by Gen. Htitll's furces, and tho ill
banding uf tliu rebel troops thrnughout that
ilepnrlinent or tho so-called Confederacy, Ills
giinio fur u permanent government wus up be
fore it was fairly entered npnn. Ills control,
ills power and ull but the empty shadow nf
authority, were struck down Ihc day before
thev were to throw off their provisional char
acter, tfven the lllclimond press could not
be kept longer iu subjection, for this single
day, if only for the trnf or tho thing. TI10
sublimity of tho bursting itorm was lost upon
the scene, because of Iho indecoious taunts or
tho Richmond Wing Hit) whole pagcuut of tlm
morrow was to bo a bitter niwljery nnd a
miserable compensation fur Iho ruin of a free
people." " An old man with a young wife

and disenchanted J'"U.tl.) 'aro parllgl illus
irutlons of the deplornblo folly." The rnneral
bakid meats coldly furnished forth the mar
riage feast, nnd nfter this mockery camo the
impious proclamation ofifdsting and prayer!

Tim followlmi letter appears in the lllcli
mond Examiner t
Tt) tlit Etlitorqllic Richmond 'xnrni'nsr,
The, independent conduct or your journal em
boldens mo to venture n crilichin upon the
late reverses at Fort Henry and lloanoko Is
html, which may be grating to cars polite, but
Is rcmhrcd nrccfsnry by the condition or the
coutitry. It Is high time that these surrrmkrs
should cease, Tor, considering the churacUr ol
the wur In Its consequences to ns, they hare
been truly amazing, commencing with that ol
the cavalry at Alexandria, down through Hint
or Col, I'egram, nt Ilteh Mountain, that of
Commodore llarron, at llatteras, etc., etc., to
tho present lamentable Instances.
At Fort Henry, a Ilrigadicr-Ocncral, nn
wounded, having a garrison nlmost intuct,
lowers Ids flag over n dozen guns of tho lar
gest calibre, nnd with n hackneyed compli
ment, yields up Ills bloodless sword. How
withering and humiliating lo our Southern
manhood was the sorrowful reply ol the Yan
kee Commodore. That the general should
have neglected to mako preparations fur pre
venting the enemy from ascending the river
nnd burning the railroad britlgc, mny be
pased over, because no commission ran make
n man n commander unless it be given by
nature 1 but If the statement ns to his surren
dering be true, Is he to bo retained upon the
rolls of the Kmillicrn nrmy ns nn ofiecr ?
The ltonnokc uflalr is pcrfu-lly incompre
hensible, The newspapers ure filled with ex
truvngant laudation! ufour valor tlic annals
ol (I recce and Home uS'r no parullil whole
regiments were defeated by companies, and we
yieldid only to death. Our men finally sur
rendered " with no blood on their buyonels,"
and what is the loss? Hiehmond Dines, 2
killed ami 0 wounded ; MeCullough Hungers,
1 klllid und 2 wounded ; the other four com
panies lost In all 2 killed nnd 11 wounded!
Comment is needless. The whole army had
Utter surrender nt once, for It" will eventually
come to it.
