Since the first attack . upon the fort,
Admiral Porter was busily employed
in filling the vessels with ammunition
and coal. This, together with the
tenacity with which ho,.with his fleet,
held on to the bombardment of Fort
Fisher, after General Butler had sailed
away, evidences that it was the. Aduri.
ral's great desire to capture the cita
del, and, if means failed, afterreplen
ishing, to renew the assault. In an

The:above extract we find in a re

Philadelphia, on. the evening of Thurs
day List. They .are words of. truth;
and express groat significance. Any
reasonable man, who has made himself
acqbainted with the progress of events
during the present war, will justify the,
assertion of the speaker, and uphold
him in it, True it is, that from out
of the intelligent people of the North
we have seen thousands springing to
the call of our, country who Were; actu
ated by the spirit of patriotism. Op
posed to them we see hosts of the ig.
norant class of the. south, who . haye
been led by the, hypocritical cries and
pleadings of unprincipled men, to war
against right and against themselves.
And again, in our own midst, whom do
we hoar assailing the administration
in bitter terms, whom do we see rais

find treasonable,—but the ignorant, or

No intelligent - man can talk treason,

do so and no-man will follow a treas

The following particulars of itic en
gagement is from Admiral Porter and
General Terry , .
' The' troops , arrived off Fort Fisher
on Thursday night the 12th, and. on
Friday they were all landed under
eovee•of a heavy fire froM the squa
dron. A reconnoissance was made by
General Terry on Saturday. A strong
defensive line against any of the one
my's forces coming from Wilmington
was established and held by 4,000 men,
principally colored troops, and an as
uirk was determined on. The assault
was made on Sunday afternoon at 3:30
°clock. The sea-front of the fort had
been.greatly damaged and broken by
the continuous and terrible fire of the
fleet for three days. Tho front was'
assaulted at the hour - mentioned by a
coluninof seamen and marines, 1,800
Strong, .under command of Captain.
Breoze.' They reached the parapet,
but after a short conflict they ' wore
checked and driven back in disorder,
and were afterwards.placed on the de
fensivo line, taking- the place 9f a bri
gade that was brought up to reinforce
the assaulting column of troops. Al
though the assault on the front failed,
it effectually served in diverting the
attention of the enemy and weakening
their resistance to -the attack of the
troops on the other side. The assault
on the other and most difficalt side of
the fort Wag made by 'a dolUmn of
troops of the old Tenth Corps, led by
Colonel Curtis, under the immediate
supervision of General Terry...
,the enemy's force in - the Eort was
over'3;ooo. The conflict lasted for sev
en hOurs. The works were so con ,
structed that every traverse afforded ,
the enemy a, new defensive position
from which they bad to he driven.
They were seven in nember, and the
fight was carried on from traverse to
traverse for seven hours, by a skillful
ly directed fire thrown into the travel'•
ses, as ono after another they wore cm.
eupied by the enemy. Admiral Porter
contributed to the success of the as
saulting column by signals between
himself and General, Terry at brief' in
*vela.. This signal, was so well man
aged, as to damage the enemy without
injury to our own troops.
At about 9 o'clock the enemy were
entirely driven from: the fort and for
ced down towards Federal Point, fol
lowed by it brigade of our troops, and
about twelve o'clock at night General

were slight, not exceeding Ono hundred

Lieut. Col: Goer.. A complete' list of
the killed and wounded will be tonvard

Barnes that bo.had ample provision of
surgeons, nurses and hospital supplies
for all the wounded. They will be sent
North to their respective States as fast
as they can be placed . on trausports,
of which there is an ample supply.

at Wilmington. A portion of it was .
tbrown : into the fort not long' before
the assault, and while that was going
- on, a demonstration was made by Hoke
against our defensive line, bat it was
folind too strong for anything, more
than a skirmishing, attack. At 11
o'clock Monday morning, a heavy cloud'
of smoke was observed Over Fort

The Military Preparations of

Dissatisfaction and Mutiny among the
Bank and .Filc-of theßebel Army.
The Tottering State ofthe:Cthafederacy
A special cerrospoliciOni - Of the Press
witing,.unoer date of;;Jan:hary 20th,
from :BorModa , 4undied, Virginia,
I see no'reason to change my opin
ion in reference to the evacuation of
Rierninni. Corroborating testimony
is'daily arrivingfran_the rebel-strong
hold. The machinery is being remo
ved to Danville. The bankers have
already sent their deposits to - that
place, and it is generally believed by
the people that the rebel chiefs will
soon pack up their 'traps and start.
South. Danville is'distant about one
hundred miles from Richmond.
The greatest dissatisfaction now ex
ists in the rebel army. The feeling is
very intenseagainst tl3eadministration
of Jeff Davis, and if Gen. Grant; doei
not soon capture him, it is asserted
the rebels will be certain to hang him.
It is further asserted that even. now
he dare not walk the streets of. Rich
mond without a strong guard, froni
fear of assassination by some felloW
rebels, who charge upon him the dis
asters to their God forsaken cause.
If you have not been, informed, I
would mention a very unpleasant state
of affairs in the rebel eamps'iti 'our
front. The Georgia troops .refused to
remain any longer in Virginia and
North Carolina soldiers wore drawn up
to bring them to . terms, but without
effeet. The mutiny fora timer Mares,
oned terrible consequences, and the
way in which the rebel authorities
deemed best to suppress it was to al
low the. Georgia troops to return to.
their State. It is more than likely that
this feeling has boon stimulated by a
realization of the inevitable defeat of
their entire armies. These soldiers
will return not only to their homes,
but to their allegiance.
