ollowing are the names of some of the rebel officers captured: Col. Gantt, Col. Voorhees, Col. Forrest, Col. Brown, and Col. Abernathy. The following dispatch shows that the Federalists have discovered that they have not captured Gen. A. S. Johnston: Cairo, Feb. 17.--The steamer Memphis arrived from Fort Donelson this evening, bringing a Mississippi regiment of prisoners and some fifty or sixty wounded soldiers who were left at Mound City. Eight or nine others boats were on theirand. The prisoners from Fort Donelson will probably be sent to Camp Douglas, Chicago. It appears that the General Johnston captured at Fort Donelson is Bushrod Johnson, of Tennessee, a Brigadier General, and not, as first stated, Gen. A. S. Johnston. The time it takes to go from Fort Donelson to Cairo is from 12 to 15 hours. Sometimes the boats drop off the news at Smithland and Paducah, but not always. The War in Missouri. The Federalists have been much exercised relativ
terrible. Twelve thousand of our men captured, is a story that wrings our hearts not a little. The enemy's strength must have been immense — many thousand superior to our's, independent of their gunboats. The evacuation of Nashville by the Confederate forces is beyond doubt. It was of course an inevitable measure, or we many presume that our Generals never would have adopted it. A dispatch from Augusta, dated Saturday, states that the enemy's gunboats reached Nashville on Thursday; but our dispatch from Memphis states that the enemy had not occupied the city on Friday. General Johnston is reported to be at Murfreesborough, which is twenty-two miles southeast of Nashville, (and not in reach of gunboats,) whether to make a stand there or not is not stated. General Beauregard is reported to be at Columbus, and determined to defend it. We had anticipated the evacuation of that place by our forces, and think it doubtful now that General B. will attempt to hold it.
12,000 capitulated on Sunday. It is believed that Nashville has been evacuated, and our army has fallen back, but to what point is not known. [Second Dispatch.] Memphis, Feb. 21. --Federal gunboats went up the Tennessee river to Eastport, Miss., and seven miles of Inka to-day, but returned this afternoon. Nashville is not yet occupied by Federal troops, and neither is Columbus. [third Dispatch.] Memphis, Feb. 22. --The latest advices from Nashville were up to last night. The city, up to that time, was not occupied by Federal troops. It was thought that Gen. Buel, and his Federal army, would reach there by Monday. Gen. Johnston, it is reported is at Murfreesboro', 22 miles southeast of Nashville, where he will be joined by Gen. George B. Crittenden. There is nothing of startling interest this morning. Avensta, Feb. 22.--Private dispatches received here from Chattanooga state that the Federal gunboats reached Nashville on Thursday.
