Three days of steady fight-- Three shades of stormy night-- Donelson tumbles. Surrender out of hand! “Unchivalrous demand!” (So Buckner grumbles.)

New-England, having patiently turned cheek after cheek to the buffeting of Southern arrogance, cannot be very seriously blamed now for returning the compliment with its gallant Foote. Cincinnati Gazette, February 27.
The Foot a New arm. What need have we now for a gun or a sabre, The recreant rebels to slash or to shoot, When at “Henry” and “Donelson” Abe makes them caper, By simply applying a toe of his Foote<
