have not been deemed worthy of reporting. There is a rumor the rebels have been moving a heavy force in the direction of Luray, to operate in the Shenandoah Valley, but no doubt General Pope has taken measures to guard against any disaster in that direction. The rebels have tried their hand at recapturing Fort Donelson; but have failed. The fort, garrisoned by four companies of the 71st Ohio regiment, under command of Major Nab, was attacked on Monday by the force of rebels under Col. Woodward--the same which captured Clarksville — but the Ohio boys repulsed the assailants, killing and wounding thirty of them. The rebel force consisted of 450 infantry, 335 cavalry, and two pieces of artillery. News from Memphis, which we publish this morning, renders it probable that Breckinridge has though better of his intention to make a second attack on Baton Rouge. It is stated that he is moving his entire army up to Senatobia, on the New Orleans, Jackson and Great Northern Railroa
From Kentucky. A private letter received yesterday by a member of Congress from Kentucky, states that on the 14th of September a band of Partisan Rangers, under Col. Woodward, captured on the Cumberland river, opposite Canton, Ky., four steamboats and their cargoes, consisting of munitions of war and supplies for Gen. Busll's army. The same letter says our forces have possession of Cumberland river in Southwestern Kentucky, and of the counties of Trigg, Lynch, Caldwell, Christian, and Todd. The people of Southern Kentucky were flocking to the standard of the Confederacy.
ngton heavy firing was heard all day, indicating the retreat of the rebels and the sharp pursuit by our forces. Rumors were current at Lexington that a detachments of our men had separated John Morgan's band in two parts, which were trying to concentrate and retreat in the direction of Gallatin. J. D. Hence, Colonel commending at Bowling Green, says we have thrashed the rebels at Springfield and Keysburg, breaking up their camp. Their camp at Trenton will be attacked to- morrow.--Woodward is at Trenton with 500 men. Johnson has gone to Caseyville. Gen. Crittenden command is said to have captured fifty leaves and one hundred wagons on Tuesday from the rebels. Gen. Bucil's main army passed through Crab Orchard at 11 o'clock yesterday morning, and it unimpeded by skirmishers must be near Rock Castle river, while Bragg's main force is supposed to be near London. At headquarters, as far as advised, it is thought Buell is pressing the enemy's rear sharply and that t
ing, and smoking and swearing, and cutting up more ridiculous capers than over graced a monkey show. The recent capture of Federal gunboats on the Cumberland. The Nashville Dispatch, of a recent date, in speaking of the operations of Col. Woodward on the Cumberland, admits three boats destroyed instead of two, as we published a few days since. The following is its telegram: Clarksville April 8.--The steamboats Lovell, Propeller, and Saxonia were captured and burned to day 15 miles above Clarksville. The Captain of the Lovell was killed, the Captain of the Saxonia had his arm shot off, and the fleet engineer of the Lovell wounded. Woodward was in command of the rebels, and had 1,200 men and two pieces of artillery. The passengers and crews of the boats have just arrived here. Col. Bruce has sent an expedition up the river to-night. The from the want of proper management of the gunboats. They fell back to Smithfield to co when they could have obtained a ful
prevent a detachment being sent below to interfere with Wheeler's rans. Franklin, Tenn., May 10.--A flag of truce from Spring Hill to-day reports Van-Dorn's death confirmed. He was shot by Dr. Peters, not Major Cherry. There had long been an undue intimacy between Mrs. Peters and General Van- Dorn. Dr. Peters escaped to Nashville. A letter from Columbia to the Rebel says three transports and two gunboats, descending the Tennessee river on the 27th of April, were attacked by Col. Woodward, and the transports were sunk. The gunboat escaped. Progress of Gen. Grant. Cairo, April 11. --The Memphis Bulletin says: We learn that Jackson, Miss., is already invested, and that the rebels have no way of getting out of Vicksburg but by cutting their way through the national forces. The steamer Horizon, during an engagement at Grand Gulf, ran in a snag and sunk with 100,000 rations on board, most of which were lost. It was the pontoon bridge over Big Blac

The following is a list of losses of officers in Gen. Sol. Meredith's brigade, Wadsworth's division, first army corps, in yesterday's fight: Gen. Meredith, bruised on top of the head by a fragment of shell. His horse was shot under him and fell upon him, bruising and injuring him internally. Lieut. Col. G W Woodward, Aid de-Camp to Meredith, wounded in right arm. The New York papers have not a single exultant paragraph over the fight, which is very significant. The World, of the 4th, says: At last a gleam of intelligible light relieves the murky chaos of official telegrams, in which, for three days past, the battle-fields of Pennsylvania have been enshrouded. In a dispatch which would have better satisfied the general expectations, and gone further to appease the general anxiety, had the W

of the enemy. Drs. R. B. Hanalian and Prioleau are said to be prisoners in the hands of the enemy. Capt. Langdon Cheves, an accomplished and very efficient officer of the Engineer corps, was killed almost instantly by a shell from a monitor exploding in Battery Wagner, and striking him in the head. His body was brought to the city last evening. Fort Sumter opened on the turreted monsters and the Yankee infantry on the South end of Morris's Island, with what result we are unable to say. The fight doubtless will be renewed to day, with greater fierceness than any we have yet seen. The enemy has certainly shown a deep laid plan, and is determined to push it. The following is a list of the killed and wounded among the officers, Friday, on Morris's Island: Killed--Capt. Chas Haskell, Capt. Langdon Cheves, Lt. John Bee. Wounded--Capt. J. W. Ford, Lt. Aleton, Capt. Wild, Capt. Thomas, Capt Tarth. Missing--Capt. Howard, Lt. A. P Craig, Capt. Reddy, Lt. Woodward.
