Still Later.--St. Louis, Feb. 16.--Dispatches received at headquarters say that our gunboats were pretty effectually disabled, except one. Commodore Foote was Wounded twice, but not seriously. The upper redoubt taken by our troops commands the main work of Fort Donelson, and Gen. Grant telegraphs that he would be able to capture that fort to-day, (Sunday.) Dispatch from Com. Foote. U. S. Flag-Ship St. Louis,Near Fort Donelson, via Paducah, February 15, 1862. To Hon. Gibson Welles, Secretary of the Navy: Sir: I made an attack on Fort Donelson yesterday, at 3 o'clock P. M., with four iron-clad gunboats and two wooden ones, and after one hour and a quarter severe fighting, the latter part of the day, within less than 400 yards of the fort, the wheel of this vessel and the tiller of the Louisville were shot away, rendering the two boats unmanageable. They then drifted down the river.--The two remaining boats were also greatly damaged between wind and water.
