Augusta, Ga., Feb. 18.
--Professor Paul F. Eve
arrived here to-night from Nashville
.--He says that Fort Donelson
fell on Sunday morning. 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 at Clarkesville
The river was rising, so that the enemy's gunboats can reach Nashville
A large amount of Government stores will fall into the hands of the enemy.
The most of the rolling stock will probably be saved.
