Savannah to Capitulate on Thursday
The Associated Press' letter from Fortress
Monroe says, the Charleston Courier of the
16th contains the following:
A flag of truce boat brought up, on Thursi
day, 104 paroled Confederate officers from
Fort Pulaski. The Ycinkee officers in the
fleet report that Gen. Sherman and staff
have arrived at Hilton Head; also, that-it
was rumored that Savannah was to capitulate
at 12 o'clock, ii., on Thursday.
Thy had learned of • the fall of Fort-Pd
Allister, but give no particulars.
Another thousand of Yankee prisoners wilt
be taken down this morning. This completes
the exchange and makes the number turned
over by Colonel Hatch 11,000.
The Republican says: The Government re

Grant, at City Point, announcing that the.

HEADQUARTERS ARMY OF THE POTOMAC,
There is nothing of interest transpiring in
this Department. The enemy keep up their
fire, but not so persistently as formerly, on
the Dutch Gap canal. Very few casualties

the shells. For the week ending Dec. 18th,
180 deserters had reached Richmond from the
Union armies, and would be forwarded to the
boider to start for their hOmes on blockade

WEST ALEXANDRIA, PR.,
Monday, Dec. 19, 1864.
ED. TELEGEAPH—Dear Sir:—"in a former
letter I neglected to mention—while speaking
of the merits of Sergeant Wm. A. Bush's
Drum Corps—the names of several other per
formers on the parchment, belonging to Har
risburg. The names omitted, carelessly, were
Jacob Poist, John H. Caslow, Aaron Kineade
and Chess. Gibson, all of whom axe clever
soldiers and capital drummers, and certainly
worthy of a notice in our correspondence.
The staunoh old steamer "Warrior" headed
down the river on Saturday once more, laden
to the gunwales with "fresh" beef for the brave
and gallant Union soldiers in General Grant's
army. There is seemingly no end to the re
sources of the U. S. Government, in the fur
nishing and despatching of supplies to the
front, and to other points, where needed, from
Washington city. Immense trains of stock
are shipped from the west, by contractors,
and are daily shipped at Washington or Ate's
andria, and forwarded with the utmost des
patch. Much of this description of subsistence
is shipped over the Pennsylvania Central Rail
way, the Northern Central Railway, and over
the Baltimore and Ohio Road. There is al
ways a surplus on hand, at this point, the
cattle-herders inforthed me, and' at no time
has the supply fallen short of the demand.
With supplies so abundant, the army rein
forced and organized to such perfection as we
find it at the present day, with victory perch
ing on our national banners at every recent
engagement with the panic-stricken enemy, we
have the brightest hopes of a speedy termina
tion of the rebellion! The belligerents, as all
recent circumstances prove, are nearly "played
out"—out of spirits, out of money, out of credit,
and out of most of the common necessaries
of life ! Even the secesh sympathizers here
in Alexandria, when you chance to draw them
out in conversation, readily admit that their
cause was never more desperate—so utterly
I. learn that there is an effort about to be
made for the construction of a, chapel, at, or
somewhere near camp, for the purpose of
holding service therein by our worthy Chap
lain. It is entirely out of the question to get
a congregation of men together, when -they
would be obliged to stand over shoe-tops in
ma to listen to a sermon. Whatever may
have been said, heretofore, in regard to, the
demoralization of soldiers in the army, it ap
plies in no manner to the 201st Regiment A
majority of the men composing this regiment
are men of families, accustomed to keep the
Sabbath day holy, and to attend public wor
ship at home with their families. Many as
can be spared from camp at -attertcr
the city chr"'°l="4 ma return to camp bane
fitted by their attendance to Divine worship.
xr PIAi williug and faithful Chaplain had but
a chapel—no matter how rudely constructed
—to gather in
"The people of his pasture
And the sheep of his fold!"
he might accomplish a vast amount of good.
;The men under his charge are all well dis
posed and willing at all times to be encour
aged, as well as instructed in the truths of the
Bible. The spirit of Christianity is infused
.in the Regiment
We sincerely hope our friend and faithful
adviser, Chaplain Rakestraw, will succeed in
getting some place wherein to preach the gos
pel, so that we may be reminded alike of our
duty to God, as well as to our country and
her proud old flag!
• There are several courts-martial still con
vened in Alexandria, and to-day a heavy de
tail was made from the 201st, for the purpose
of facilitating military business. You will
perceive, therefore, that we of the 201st,- are
of some account in this part of Dixie.
It is awfully muddy here. - Men almost
Swamp in crossing the streets it our post.
The boys are talking about purchasing a gun
boat, for the purpose of plying between Duke
Street Grand Guard Post and Camp Slough.
