g organs in proclaiming the General Commanding deposed from the command of the whole army, excite here more ridicule than indignation.--The administration and Gen. McClellan are unmoved by these petty assaults. From Fortress Monroe. Fortress Monroe, Feb. 18. --The steamer Stars and Stripes sailed for Hatteras this foretary Staton, the honor and credit of them wholly belong. On the same day the following appeared in the Washington letter of the New York Times: General McClellan sat by the telegraph operator at his headquarters, Sunday; General Buell did the same at Louisville and General Halleck at St. Louis; and, the circuit being ade all the orders and dispositions of forces to perfect the victory and pursue the broken enemy. The battle was fought, we may say, almost under the eye of General McClellan. So remarkable an achievement has seldom adorned science. The story of an escaped Yankee prisoner. The New York World has the following in its Wash
hat extorted a compliment even from the lips of the Yankee General, Lander, a man not much given to the language of compliment, was our esteemed friend, Dr. Robert Baldwin, of Winchester. He is a brother of the late Judge Baldwin, of Staunton, and as firm "an old Virginia gentleman, one of the olden time," as could be seen in a week's journey. We were quite delighted to hear of the vigorous and slashing manner in which, at the head of a handful of militia, he laid about him amongst the Yankee caitiffs, causing many of the marauding crew to bite the dust. We trust that his captivity may be brief. We will wager a trifle that his genial and gallant soul has taken Lander captive already, and that he will permit him to return soon to his home. We trust that in this respect he will be as fortunate as his son-in-law, President Atkinson of William and Mary, who, after gallant service, was taken prisoner at an early period of the war by General McClellan, but soon liberated upon parole.
oats attacked the Federal batteries at Venus Point, on the 14th inst, to effect a passage from Fort Pulaski to Savannah. After an engagement of an hour the gunboats retired. St. Louis, Feb. 20. --Gen. Halleck has telegraphed to Gen. McClellan that Col. Curtis had taken Bentonville, in Arkansas. St. Louis, Feb. 21. --No preparations have been made for the evacuation of Columbus. Fourteen steamers are at the wharf. A General and reinforcements had arrived from the Soidell was very ungraceful. The Nashville started forty hours in advance of the Tuscarora, and her officers announced that they would blew her up before they would allow her to be taken. The New York Tribunes ridicules the statement that Gen. McClellan directed the battle of Fort Donelson. The latest advices from Fort Donelson state that the Confederates had abandoned Clarksville and were moving everything to Nashville. The Federal troops are preparing for an attack upon Memphis.
f the President: Edwin M. Stanton, Secretary of War. Circular. H'dqrs of the Army, Adj't Gen's Office, Washington, D. C., Feb. 18, 1862. The general officers who, under the joint resolutions of Congress may be invited to attend the ceremonies in the chamber of the House of Representatives on Saturday, the 22d day of February, instant, will assemble in the old Supreme Court room at the capitol, in full uniform, at a quarter to 12 o'clock of that day. By command of Major. Gen. McClellan. L. Thomas, Adj't. General. In the House of Representatives at Washington on Monday, as already announced, there was a wild and frantic joy upon the victory at Fort Donelson. They would neither adjourn nor proceed to business; but continued shaking hands, shouting and jumping for joy. On Tuesday resolutions of thanks to the armies in Kentucky and on our Atlantic coast generally were adopted. Boston fired 100 guns and the Puritan Legislature passed thanks to the Federal
is will put an end to the annoyances that occur in Europe from these transatlantic quarrels. It would appear that war steamers, which must leave our ports in twenty-four hours, and can only come and coal once in three months, cannot be so troublesome. The fight in the New World may be mighty, and terrific, and sublime. It may be the real battle of Armageddon for aught we know. It may be like the shock of hostile earthquakes. We are constantly being told how terrible it is to be when Gen. McClellan gets well and his army is ready. We are content to believe or disbelieve it; but, as it comes to us in the Old World, it is like a war of frogs and mice, and is simply a small nuisance. Our friends over the water ought to remember that we have not the same reasons which they have for enduring such disturbances.--The revelations made by Mr. Dawes in Congress apply to America, and not England. It is pretty clear now that the war of the Federal States is kept up by a fictitious publi
