The fall of Fort Donelson. After three days of the most desperate fighting ever witnessed on this continent, (so declares a veteran regular officer,) the most desperate fighting against the most tremendous-odds, in which day after day the multitudinous host of invaders was driven back past their own camp, our glorious Spartand cowardice, that their own ambassadors cannot stand the storm of the world's contempt, and are all anxious to fly back to the United States. Their success at Fort Donelson, gained only by vast superiority of numbers, will only have the effect of converting the whole population of the South--men, women and children — into an immense army, who will resist them at every step, and everywhere "welcome them with bloody hands to hospitable graves." The glorious valor of our troops at Fort Donelson is not dimmed in the slightest degree by their inability to hold their ground against overwhelming odds; but, on the contrary, shines through the black clouds of disast

Some say the Federalists care but little about Nashville; that Memphis is the point they want above all others in this val

It is true, the facts concerning this last disaster have not yet reached us from sources enur perilous situation, and to the energy and activity requisite for the occasion, they will not have overtaken us in vain. We do not believe the defeat at Fort Donelson is of the proportion our telegraphic columns would give us to understand. It must be remembered, the intelligence they furnish comes from the enemy, who are nage to which it has thus early been subjected. The War Department received Monday evening, from General A. S. Johnston, a telegram, announcing the fall of Fort Donelson, but couched in so ambiguous a style that it because necessary to request more intelligible information.

He states that Gen. Johnson had telegraphed to the enemy and offered to surrender Nashville on the condition that private property would be respected. No answer was received; but a majority of the citizens seemed willing to give up on these conditions. A large number of persons had left the city. Thirteen thousand Federal troops are at Fort Donelson, and two thousand were af persons had left the city. Thirteen thousand Federal troops are at Fort Donelson, and two thousand were at Clarkesville. The river was rising, so that the enemy's gunboats can reach Nashville.
