then had invested the fort. If General Hallect's statement was correct that Floyd (the thief) was then inside the fort, it is likely that he had taken the division with which he left Bowling Green last Monday along with him, instead of having taken it to East Tennessee to fight General Thomas, as was supposed. That division consists of three brigades, one of which was immediately commanded by Floyd himself, another by Hardee, and another by Simon Bolivar Buckner. The regiments were from Arkansas, Mississippi, Tennessee, Virginia, and Kentucky, and were the flower of the rebel army in the Southwest. The four regiments also which fled from Fort Henry on its capture by Commodore Foote, had probably also taken refuge in Fort Donelson. The rebel troops at Clarksville, too, could have been easily thrown forward after the fall of Fort Henry. There is no doubt that all the rebel forces that could possibly be spared were there. Up to the 20th of last month, the fort was occupied by only

Their retirement will enfranchise hundreds of thousands of loyal citizens in those States, who will spring with joy to meet the old flag, and rapidly range themselves under the regular constitutional Government that the Confederate traitors have tried to extinguish Virginia is as loyal a State, to-day, as ever Maryland or Missouri was. And as for Tennessee, I verily believe that it always was, and is now, more truly and even ardently loyal than any border slave State in the Union. North Carolina is nearly akin to Tennessee in patriotic feeling. If, therefore, the Confederate armies retreat to the Gulf States, the loyal citizens of Virginia, North Carolina, and Tennessee, will immediately reorganize their State Governments, and with rejoicing as sincere and hearty as ever animated any people on earth the

It is located at a point where the river washes an ob use angle in its north ward course. It is 12 miles southeast of Fort Henry, which was captured just nine days before the present victory.--The main object of the fort was to stand as a rear defence to Bowling Green, and also as a defence against our approach to Nashville by the Cumberland river. It was believed by the rebels that it would block up effectually our passage into Tennessee in this direction. Some seven or eight post roads here intersect each other, and the railroad from Bowling Green to Memphis passes but four miles south of it. This same rail
