Doc. 36.-fight at Blooming Gap, Va. Gen. Lander's official report. Washington, Saturday, February 15. the following news was received here to-day: Pawpaw, Va., Friday, February 14--8 P. M. Major-Gen. G. B. McClellan: The railroad was opened to Hancock this morning, also the telegraph. We had an important forced reconnoissance last night, which was completed to-day. We broke up the rebel nest at Blooming Gap. We ran down and captured seventeen commissioned officers, among them colonels, lieutenant-colonels, captains, etc. We engaged them with four hundred cavalry; our infantry was not near enough to support the cavalry, and the enemy's were retiring. We have in all seventy-five prisoners, and killed thirteen of the enemy, and lost two men and six. horses at their first fire. I led the charge in person, and it was a complete surprise. Col. Carroll, commanding the Fifth or Eighth Ohio, made a very daring and successful reconnoissance immediately aft
the Ohio. Soldiers! I feel a perfect confidence that the high estimate placed upon your power, endurance, energy and heroism, is just. Your aim and mine has been to deserve the approbation of our commanding officer, and of our Government and our country.

ally, during both actions, without receiving any dangerous wounds; and also to thank you for giving your brigade and our regiment, an opportunity to asist so materially in the consummation of the great victory. I am, Colonel, your most obedient servant, Fred. Arn, Major Thirty-first Indiana Volunteers. [D.] headquarters Forty-Fourth Regt. Indiana Vols., Fort Henry, February 18, 1861. Col. Charles Cruft, Commanding First Brigade, Third Division: Sir: On the morning of Saturday, February fifteenth, the Forty-fourth regiment, Indiana volunteers, left their bivouac near the enemy's lines and marched to the attack on Fort Donelson. By order of Gen. McClernand we first took position near the battery, (which was afterward assaulted by the rebels.) In this position the enemy's shot passed over our heads. Shortly afterward we were ordered forward into line with our brigade, (First.) As we marched past the enemy's breastworks, we received a heavy fire, wounding some of our men. W

A rebel account of the capture. A gentleman who left Nashville shortly after the battle at Fort Donelson communicates to the Mobile Tribune an interesting account of the evacuation and surrender of the city, a portion of which we append: The fight at Fort Donelson, on the thirteenth, fourteenth, and fifteenth of February, was of intense concern to us, and each day's work down there wound up with the statement that the fight would be renewed to-morrow. The fears that the fall of Fort Henry were calculated to inspire had been well-nigh dispelled by the way Fort Donelson was holding out. It was better located, and stronger in men and guns.
