The new fort, elegantly located and strongly built, ready for the guns on the 1st of February; but the guns necessary did not time. Fort Donelson, previously only a river of five or six guns, was being rapidly converted into an enclosed fort, and guns of heavy metal were mounted on the bluff, so as to command the river.
