lling back to meet McIntosh, who is coming up with reinforcements, and on his joining him he would return and give us battle. The probabilities are, however, that he is in full retreat. The people in and around Springfield express undoubted satisfaction at the arrival of our troops, and general rejoicing is manifested throughout the Southwest at the retreat of the rebels. This expedition will doubtless end the campaign in Missouri. Union victory in upper Virginia. Pawpaw, Va., Feb. 14 --8 P. M.--Major-General G. B. McClellan: The railroad was opened to Hancock this morning; also, the telegraph. We had an important forced reconnaissance last night, which was completed to-day. We broke up the rebel nest at Blooming Gap.--We ran down and captured seventeen (17) commissioned officers — among them Colonels, Lieutenant-Colonels, Captains, &c. I will forward a description list. We engaged them with four hundred cavalry. Our infantry were not near enough to sup
The battle at Fort Donelson.Federal Accounts. We make some further extracts from the Yankee newspapers in our possession, which it will be seen, readily admit the desperate fighting on the part of the Confederate troops, at Fort Donelson. The following is an extract from a letter dated Feb. 14, written by a person who witnessed the naval engagement: The flagship St. Louis took the advance, and was hugging the western shore; then came our own (the Louisville,) then the Pittsburgh and Carbondale, in order, as near side by side as was possible, in a river scarcely wide enough for two boats to pass each other. In this order we formed a straight battery of twelve guns in front, while the two gunboats, Conestoga and Lexington, followed in our wake, pouring in their quota of missiles from their bow columbiads at a safe distance. We could see nearly every one of our shots take effect within or near the rebel batteries, the more deadly and certain as we slowly steamed up toward the
nts in large numbers, and other movements intended to divert the attention of our authorities and the Generals in command of our forces, but the Federals will always find Gen. Johnston as prompt to discern their movements and intentions, as he is ready and prepared to give them battle and defeat them.

Carried to the Penitentiary. --Henry Myers, Deputy Marshal of the Eastern District, yesterday lodged in the Penitentiary of Virginia a man named Anne Jackson, a former mail carrier of Campbell county, who was on the 14th of February found guilty, before Judge Halyburton, of depredating on the mail, and fined one dollar by a jury. On yesterday the Judge sentenced him to three years imprisonment at hard labor in the Penitentiary, and he was accordingly taken to his future place of abode.
, at the North End, where they took the Argo, and in an hour were at the gates of Fort Warren. The prisoners appeared very little concerned at the demonstration at the depot. Tilghman, if appearances were not deceptive, appeared to rather enjoy it. He did not, perhaps, expect such a cordial reception. Buckner hardly enjoyed the thing, fearing possibly that the attentions might reach a point of violence, of which there was no danger and no intention. They are not of sufficient account for a Boston crowd to seriously trouble. Federal Congress. In the Senate, on Tuesday, the Confiscation bill was taken up, and Messrs. McDougall, of California, and Cowan, of Pennsylvania, spoke in opposition to it. Nothing important transpired in the House. Operations in Missouri. Gen. Halleck, in his dispatches, claims "seven brilliant skirmishes" in thirteen days in Missouri and Arkansas, commencing at Springfield on the 14th February, and ending at Fayetteville on the 27th.
est mail a letter from a young friend, in which it stated that he had applied to Gen. McClellan for a passport, in order to proceed to Richmond. The General at once granted it. But when it was presented to Mr. Seward, he refused to counter sign it, giving as reason for not doing so, that he expected in the course of three weeks every one who pleased would be free as formerly to leave and enter Richmond. Mr. Slidell in Paris. The Paris correspondent of the New York Herald writes (Feb. 14) as follows: Mr. John Slidell has succeeded in obtaining alehouse, and, with his family, and goods, and "chattels," including his mulatto wench, will move next week into the Champs Elysee, and in the course of a week or two will give a "house warming." He has recovered from the physical effects of his incarceration and anxiety, and proximity to Bunker Hill, and his subsequent sea voyage, and looks, for an old man, quite rosy and jolly. He is suffering no grass to grow under his feet.
The surrender of Nashville. A gentleman who left Nashville shortly after the battle at Fort Donelson, communicates to the Mobile Tribune an interesting account of the evacuation and surrender of the city, a portion of which we append: The fight at Fort Donelson on the 13th, 14th and 15th of February, was of intense concern to us, and each day's work down there wound up with the statement that the fight would be renewed to-morrow. The fears that the fall of Fort Henry were calculated to inspire, had been well nigh dispelled by the way Fort Donelson was holding out. It was better located, and stronger in men and guns. Pillow, Floyd and Buckner were there. Pillow had said — let come what might, he never would surrender the place, and Nashville felt that we could not afford to lose that battle.--Saturday's work was glorious. Our citizens shouted over it. Many were saying, "I never liked Pillow, but forgive him now — he is the man for the occasion." A sober, modest citizen
our continent will be formed to overthrow the aggressors;" and the leading journal lasts, who evidently fear European supremacy in America, are not slow to denounce the idea, Earl Russell's recent declaration that " If the Mexican people, by a spontaneous movement, place the Austrian Archduke on the throne, there is nothing in the Convention to prevent it" has added fuel to the flame. As part of the history of this interesting episode, we copy the annexed letter of the Paris correspondent (Feb. 14) of the London Times. The question of a candidate for the throne of Mexico has been before the world for some weeks, at home as well as abroad. It has been more than insinuated that Austria might be induced to listen to proposals for the renunciation of her rights on Venetian on condition of one of her Archdukes being called to that throne. This has been denied with more or less acrimony by the official, or sets official, Press of Vienna. The French, Monitur seems to have carefully
Insignificant amount. --The law provides that at certain stated periods, all the fines imposed by the Mayor which may accrue to the Commonwealth shall be paid by that officer into the hands of the Clerk of the Hustings Court, to be paid over by him to the Auditor of Public Accounts. Yesterday the Mayor rendered in court an account, under oath, of the number and amount of the fines accruing to the State, imposed from the 14th of February. to the 14th of July. The number was four, and the amount of fine one dollar in each case.
