Gordon Granger, Major-General United States Army. Colonel C. B. Anderson, Commanding Fort Gaines. Colonel Anderson's reply. The above was sent off to the fort at a late hour in the evening. Soon afterwards the bearers returned to the flag-ship, bringing with them Colonel Anderson and a staff officer, when, afters protractedners of war, Fort Gaines and all the public property appertaining thereto, intact, and in the same condition it is now, will take place at 8 o'clock A.
