General Page and Fort Morgan.

--A few days since a Yankee telegram announced that "the rebel General Page had been court martials on the charge of destroying property in Fort Morgan after he had surrendered." This charge has been disproved before a Yankee court-martial. We give the following extract of a letter from one of the officers of Fort Morgan, dated "Prison House," New Orleans, September 13, 1864:

"The army and navy have been much incensed against General Page for no other reason than the fact that he held Fort Morgan as long as we could fight it. When surrendered, it was a mass of debris. General Page has been before a council of war, charged with destroying property after the white flag was displayed. The charge was disproved.--Nothing of the kind was done."
