rdered a surrender, whereupon all the troops, except Col. Deshier's brigade, immediately surrendered. He refused to surrender his brigade until ordered by Gen. Churchill. When the General rode into the fort and surrendered, he was met by Gen Sherman, who wished to know where his (Gen. Churchill's) men were. When Gen C. told him they were all there in sight, he seemed surprised and could scarcely credit the fact that so small a body of troops had succeeded in baffling for so long a time, and killing so many of his men. The Federal acknowledge the loss of 1,600 killed and wounded, and I think 2,000 would not be a large figure, while we lost only about 100 in killed and wounded. Gen. Churchill told Gen. Sherman that he had not ordered a surrender, but, on the contrary, that he had ordered the men to fight until all were dean in the trenches rather than surrender. He had telegraphed for reinforcements, and hoped they would roach him that evening, but I believe none were e

Charleston. --A telegram published Friday says: "Gen. Sherman says if Gillmore has taken Charleston and fails to lay the city in ashes, he will be sacrificed by his troops. His superiors — the Northern people — demand the utter destruction of Charleston." The usual grandiloquent and Bombasts Furioso style of Yankee bulletins! "If Gillmore has taken Charleston (which he has not,) he will be sacrificed by his troops unless he burns it down at once, that and nothing less being thisted in the salvation of Charleston from the dismal fate of Yankee subjugation. Better, far better, than such a fate, that Charleston should be laid in ashes, either by its barbarian foe or the hands of its own brave defenders. That which Sherman threatens as the extremity of Yankee vengeance, the burning of the town, is mercy compared with its occupation by Yankees, with the living death of New Orleans. But we believe it is destined to neither of these calamities. It is defended by a
ts continuous music. The Yankees marshalled their forces in long and broad columns from Chattanooga and the various positions along the Office Creek, advancing like the cloud on the unflinching heroes of Cleburne's and Cheatham's commands. Sherman's corps, supposed to number 35,000 men, advanced to the assault, and made assault after assault against the impregnable position. During the hours between 11 A. M. to 5 P. M. the firing of musketry and cannon was incessant. We have never hwas there the boys could whip all the damned Yankees they could bring against them. The Second Tennessee also was supporting this batters, and for infernal stubborn fighting it has never been surpassed. One more assault at 4 P. M., and Sherman's corps received a terrific punishment that made them turn and fly dow the hill, and soon they were lost to view in the stinking murky clouds of war. Our forces pursued them rapidly, and the last account we had from the foe was that they had cro

Two unsuccessful assaults were made by Gen Sherman, but, with the cooperation of the centre, he ultimately gained te enemy was posted; the main force was driven northward toward General Sherman, who opened on them, and they were forced to break and seek sa and wounded cannot be obtained, as most of the killed were in General Sherman's corps, and remained at dark in the hands of the enemy.

The enemy also burned the depot and stores at Chickamauga.--Gen. Sherman crossed the Chickamauga this forenoon. Gen. Hooker was reportedbrated Loomis battery, which was lost by us at Chickamauga.

visible in the vicinity of Jackson and Madison Station at 10 o'clock Saturday night. Before General French retired he caused a large lot of cotton at the depot to be destroyed. A few cars were left at the depot. The railroad between Brandon and Jackson was left uninjured by our troops. In addition to the two columns which moved out on Cauton and Jackson, another was reported as advancing on Chrystal Springs, but this needs further confirmation before it is entitled to full credence. Sherman was in chief command. We learn that a stand will be made at Morton. All telegraphic communications, except for military purposes, have been interdicted by Gen. Polk, which fact accounts for our failure to receive intelligence of these important movements several days ago. We see nothing particularly discouraging in all this. The occupation of Jackson and the withdrawal of the main body of our infantry force cast of the Pearl, is no more than we all expected.--Indeed, indications for
ankees were occupying the basement of the church at the time. It is not known whether it was the result of accident or design, but supposed to have been the former. Of the twelve citizens who were arrested and required to take the oath of allegiance to the Lincoln Government or leave the Yankee lines, we have heard of Messrs. Geo. P. Beirne, Stephen W. Harris, and Dr. Anthony, having arrived in Dixie. Of many family residences in which the Yankees have quartered, we learn that Gen Sherman and staff have taken full possession of Mr. Beirne's, with the furniture pictures, &c., occupying it as headquarters, and the portion of Mr. B's family at home being thus compelled to seek a home with friends. Gen. Smith has made Gov. Clay's residence his headquarters, leaving but two rooms for the use of the family, and a portion of J. W. Clay's residence is similarly occupied. The country on the south side of the Memphis and Charleston Railroad, from Morrisville to Bridgeport, is
etiring Gen Polk has evacuated Meridian, is under the command of Gen Sherman, and consists of two army corps--the 16th and 17th, under Hurlbuin that quarter, says: Promising activity is observable in Gen Sherman's and Gen Banks's department. Quite a number of troops have beeuarter. It must be borne in mind, however, that the progress of Gen. Sherman's command will be necessarily slow for two or three weeks yet. Nesent in Virginia may be thrown into Georgia and East Tennessee, Gen. Sherman will be cautious in going southward from that line which interses Jackson, Meridian, Selma, and Montgomery. It seems plain that Gen. Sherman's troops in the field should, after securing Jackson, proceed duhaped themselves as to determine the now doubtful question whether Sherman should go on down to Mobile or proceed to Selma and Montgomery in go for what it is worth, is that with the indirect assistance of Gen. Sherman in occupying the attention of the rebels in Mississippi, General
Escape of a contraband. --"An intelligent contraband," the property of Vice-President Stephens, was introduced to us yesterday. He was just from Gen Sherman's army, and estimates his force at 50,000 infantry and 20,000 cavalry. Pretty tall figures, but the statement, is perhaps not worthy of full credence. The "contraband" was a fine looking fellow, was captured at Jackson last summer, and has since been breathing the air of freedom around Vicksburg and New Orleans. He says he has enough of it, is thoroughly satisfied with his liberators, and advises all fellow sufferers to "stay where dey are" He gives a most doleful description of the suffering of the contrabands at Vicksburg — says it is not in the fixture of a Yankee to care for a nigger, and when one gets sick there is no one to look after or care for him. Consequently large numbers die for the want of that kindly attention which a human master or mistress is always ready to give. His picture, we dare say, is not
