have been very onerous during the last year,

Pertinent. The following item, from the
Philadelphia Press, is worthy of some reflec
tions at the present time. Read it :
"Why should there not be a striking cor
respondence in tho actions and impulses, as
there is in the objects, of tho rebels and Breck
Inridgers ? The latter openly co-operated with
the Southern madmen up to the fall of Sump
ter. Their objects and sympathies are still a

Is weeping In almost every loyal household,
and the shadow of still greater grief tails across
every loyal threshold. Are such men to b
trusted again ? Are these lit counsellors of the
people in these fearful times ? Loyal Repub
licans and loyal Democrats, you are to answer
these questions at the polls next October."
Rebel Barbaritt. The Philadelphia In
quirer's Fredericksburg correspondent says :
"Two men of the Thirtieth New York, who
had strayed ashore some distance from their
regiment, were found afterwards, one of them
hanging by his heels from a tree with his
throat cnt ; and, the other was lying on the
ground with his throat cut from ear to ear.
These things are done very frequently, and
our troops are greatly exasperated, and retali
ation has become the watchward."
A correspondent writing from Washington
give the following well deserved tribute to the
fidelity, integrity, moderation and energy,
that have marked the course of Mr. Lincoln,
which will be read cordially by every true and
loyal citizen throughout tho country :
"I was present at the Federal capital when
Abraham Lincoln, of Illinois, was inaugurated
President of tbe United States. I need not
remind your readers of the trying circumstan
ces under which tbat Inauguration took place.
That Mr. Lincoln bore himself with modesty
and dignity while passing through that ordeal
is matter of history. To say that beyond a
small circle of personal friends, he received
in Washington anytbiog more than a cold ad
mission of his official position, would be to say
that which is not true. But from the 4th of
March, 1861, to the present day, President
Lincoln has, without interruption, advanced in
public esteem, confidence and admiration,
llere ho Is commended warmly by men who,
as much as ever, are his political opponents.
And what is better still, he is universally re
garded as the main pillar in the Government.
The contrast between him and his predecessor
in tbe Presidential office is marked, that it
doubtless has heightened the admiration of
Mr. Lincoln felt by all classes here, for no
people have a greater contempt for a weak
executive and administrative bead than the
people of the United States. And this feeling
in naturally strongest at tbe seat of Govern
ment. But as I said no such feeling is entertained
towards President Lincoln. Nor is there the
same kind of admiration of him that waa en
tertained towards President Jackson. Mr.
Lincoln possesses much of Andrew Jackson's
inherent firmness of purpose, and all his pa
triotic rectitude of principle. But he basalso
a, natural love of moderation and a genuine
let roe use an expressive word in combinatsou
torn-kindness of heart that nature did not
bestow upon the hero of New Orleans. And
yet I believe that his positive influence in the
Cabinet, upon leading men here and in Cou
gress is greater thao any President, since
Washington, ejrer acquired in the first thirteen
months of his administration. And this, too,
in spite ot tbe unparalleled disadvantages of
tbe administration of the federal government.
livery ono speaks in unqualified admiration of
his honesty never, perhapawas that virtue
in Mr. Lincoln so universally admitted as it is
to-day his caution and moderation, his kind
ness of disposition, and his resolution to do
right at whatever cost to himself. That he
has always done what able statesmen have
deemed "wisest, discreetest, best," probably
do one would affirm ; that in some things he
has overruled both tbe judgment and the wish
es of his confessedly able Cabinet is generally
understood ; but tbat with few exceptions his
policy nas been remarkable Tor that combina
tion of energy and moderation wbich consti
tutes the true strength and wisdom of govern
ment is, I think I may say, universally ad
mitted. ' I sincerely believe that his election
to the Presidency was a fortunate, nay I will
use higher language, and say a providential
event. The revolt wag to be whenever a Chiel
Magistrate waa constitutionally chosen from
the Free States, and it is difficult to fit one's
mind upon a man so admirably fitted to bear
the brant of tbe collision. Greater intellects,
there are, doubtless ; men more highly edu
cated, of more polished manners and impos
ing presence, but the thoroughly democratic
and republican simplicity of character, the
pure patriotism and spotless integrity, the in
nate fairness, pjngled with natural shrewd
ness, and the blended moderation and firm
ness of Abraham Lincoln are qualifications
that were necessary in tho crisis, and tbat a
good Providence supplied to oat sorely tried
Republic. And while I have thus written, I
nave not said half of what I have heard from
men of all parties since I came to Washington.

THE WAR FOR TTIE TJ10N.
Victory Crowns Our Glorious Flag Everywhere!
THE TAKING OF NEW 0KLEAN3.
Com. Porter in an official dispatch dated
April 25th, to the Secretary of the Navy, says :
"I have the honor to inform you that Flag
Officer Farragut, with the fleet, passed Fort
Jackson and Fort Philip on the morning of the
24th. We commenced the bombardment of
Fort Jackson on the 18th, and continued it
without intermission until the squadron made
preparations to move. The vessels were rath
er late in getting under way, and into line,
and did not get fairly started until 3.80 A. M.;
the unusual bustle apprised the garrison that
something was going on. In an hour and ten
minutes after the vessels had weighed anchor
they had passed the forts under a most terrific
fire, which they returned with interest. The
mortar fleet rained down shells on Fort Jack
son to try and keep the men from the guns,
whilst the steamers of the mortar fleet poured
in sharpnel upon the water battery commanding
the approach, at a short distance, keeping
them comparatively' quiet. When the last
vessel of ours could be seeu among the fire
and hmoke to pass the battery, signal was
made to the mortars to cease firing, and the
flotilla steamers were directed to retire from
a contest that would become unequal. It was
now daylight, and the fleet havlngpassed along,
the forts began to pay their attention to our
little squadron of steamers, the Portsmouth,
which was being towed up, and three of the
gunboats which failed to pass through. These
latter became entangled in some wreck and
chains placed in the river to obstruct, and
which were only partially removed. One of
these vessels (the Winona) got through as far
as Fort St. Philip, but having all the guns
bearing on her she sensibly retired. " The It
asca was fairly riddled, and had a shot through
her boiler, and tho Kennebec escaped unhurt.
I am disposed to think that our squadron re
ceived but little damage, considering the un
equal contest one hundred and forty-two
guns on board ship opposed to one hundred
on shore, placed in a most a commanding po
sition. For twenty minutes after the ships
passed the forts fired very feebly ou the ves
sels that remained outside ; so much so, that
the Portsmouth was enabled to drop with the
current out of gunshot, though the shot fell
pretty freely about her at last. 1 think tho
fire from the ships must' have been very de
structive of life. Before the fleet got out of
sight it was reported to me that the celebrat
ed ram Manasses was coming out to attack us ;
and sure enough there she was, apparently
stearaing along shore, ready to pounce on the
apparently ctetenceluss mortar vessels. Two
of our-steamers and some of the mortar ves
sels opened fire on her; but I soon discovered
that tbe Manassas could harm no one again,
and I ordered the vessels to save their shot.
She was beginning to emit smoke from her
ports or holes, and was discovered to be on fire
and sinking. Her pipes were all twisted and
riddled with shot, and her hull was also well
cut up. She had evidently been used up by
the squadron as they passed along. 1 tried to
save her as a curiosity, by getting a hauser
around her and securing her to the bank, but
just after doing so she faintly exploded. Her
only gun went off, and emetting flames through
her bow port, like some huge animal, she gave
a plunge and disappeared under the water.
The forts are now cut off from all communica
tion with New Orleans, and I presume that
Fag Officer Farragut has cut the wires. The
mortar fleet have been very much exposed,
and under a heavy Are for six days, during
wbich time they kept the shell going without
intermission. One or them, the Maria I Cail
ton, was sunk by a shot passing down through
xao nomia iosi out one man Killed and six
wounded. The bearing of the officers and
men was worthy of tho highest praise. They
neveronce Bagged during a period of six days;
never had an accident to one of the vessels by
firing, and when shell and shot were flying
thick above them showed not the least desire
to have the vessels move to a place of safety.
Tbe sight of the night attack was awfully
grand. The river was lit up with rafts filled
with pine knots, and tho ships seemed to be
fighting literally amidst flames and smoke.
Where we were the fite of the enemy was high
and comparatively harmless.
Com. Farragut, in a dispatch to Com. Por
ter says : Dkar Porter : We had a rough
time of it as Boggs will tell you, but thank
God, tho number of killed and wounded was
very small, considering. This ship had two
killed and eight wounded. We destroyed the
ram in a single combat between her and the
old Mississippi, but the ram backed out when
she saw the Mississippi coming at bim so ram
pantly, and he dodged her and ran on shore,
whereupon Smith put two or three broadsides
through him and knocked him all 10 pieces.
The ram pushed a fire raft on to me, and in
trying to avoid it I ran on shore. He again
pushed the fire raft on me, and got tho ship
on fire all along ono side. I thought it was
all up with us, but we put it out and got off
again, proceeding up the river, fighting our
way. We have destroyed all but two of the
gunboats, and these will have to surrender
with the forts. I intend to follow up my suc
cess and push for New Orleans arjd then come
down and attend to the torts; so you hold
them in statu quo until I come back. I think
if you send a flag of truce and demand their
surrender they will yield, for their intercourse
with tho city is cut off. Wc have cut the
wires above the Quarantine and are now eroine
ahead. I took three to four hundred prison
ers at tbe Quarautine. Tboy surrendered and I
paroled them not to take up arms again. I could
not stop to take care of them. If the Gener
al will come up to tho bayou and land a few
men, or as many as he pleases, he will find
two of our gunboats there to protect him from
the gunboats tbat are at the forts. I wish to
get to the English Turn, where they say they
have not placed a battery, yet, but have two
above, near New Orleans. They will Dot be
idle and neither will I. You supported us
A correspondent says, this dispatch was
brought to Capt. Porter by Capt. Boggs of the
Veruna, whose vessel was sunk in the action.
Capt.Boggs states that, before theVeruna sunk,
she alone destroyed six of the rebel steamers.
As ho passed the forts Capt. Boggs, as well as
all the other vessels, received their fire. The
Richmond, and one or two more of the large
steam sloops slowed down and poured three or
four broadsides each into the enemy. The
Varuna did not wait after delivering two
broadsides, but pressed directly on into a hor
net's nest of rebel gunboaia which were a mile
or two above. She was assailed by these, two
or three at a time, in ram fashion, buttiug at
her with their iron-cased prows, and several
large holes were made in her. As long as his
vessel floated, Capt. Boggs fought gallantly
with bis guns and drove tbe enemy's steamers
ashore, whore tbey were fired by their own
crews. One of tbe Varuna's shot disabled
still another steamer by making a hole in her
boiler, and this vessel surrendered to the O
neida, who took her officers and crew prison
ers; The Varuna's last gang were fired when
her decks were under water, and no clothing
or property waa saved by ,onl on board.
There were three of tbe Varuna's crew killed
in the action and aeven wounded, two of. whom
are-nct expected to survive their injarica. In-!
eluding the ram, there were eleven of the reb
el steamers destroyed, and the captain of the
ram is a prisoner on board the Mississippi.
After the fight the whole squadron repaired to
the Quarantine anchorage, which is seven
miles above the forts. There the dead were
buried and the wounded made as comfortable
as circumstances would permit. Tbe number
of our killed and wounded is estimated by
Capt. Boggs at about one hundred and twenty
five, and seventeen of these belonged to the
Richmond. He thinks that the loss on the
side of the rebels was enormous. The chain
cables which were fastened on tbe outside of
our vessels proved au admirable protection to
their machinery, as in every case where the
shot struck them it bounded off without pene
trating. A great deal of damage was done to
us by the floating dock of tho rebels, to which
I have belore adverted ; and although many
broadsides were discharge at it, tbey had no
effect whatever upon its iron sides. At Quar
antine our squadron found a large quantity of
coal, sufficient for their use for a long time.
All the vessels, save twenty-two gunboats,
started for New Orleans at twelve o'clock, at
which hour they had repaired damages and
made themselves ready for another encounter.
Capt. Boggs came down lrom the squadron in
a small boat, having picked his way through a
bayou out of the river and pulled along Back
Bay, in the rear of Fort St. Phillip. He was
guided by a soldier whom he took prisoner,
and was twenty-six hours making the passage.
Flag Officer, Farragut announces in an offi
cial dispatch that "our flag waves over both
Forts Jackson hd St. Philip." "Berwick
Bay and Fort Pike have beeu abandoned by
the rebels; in fact there was a general stam
pede." We have destroyed all the forts above
the city four in number.
FROM GEN. HALLECK'S DEPARTMENT.
Fight at Lebanon, Tennessee.
Louisville, May 6. A dispatch to the Jour
nal says that General Dumont with portions of
Woollord's Smith's and Wyukoop's Pennsyl
vania Cavalry attacked Morgan and Wood's
rebel cavalry 800 in number at Lebanon on
Monday morning at 4 o'clock. The rebels
were utterly routed,. a large number slain, and
150 prisoners, taken. Nearly all their horses
and arms were captured. They fled after
fighting an hour and a half. Gen. Dumont
being in full pursuit, he will capture the whole
force. The prisoners will be here this evening.
It was a brilliant affair and managed with great
skill by Gen. Dumont. Morgan is reported
killed. Col. Smith is wounded in the letr.
Col. Woollord was wounded in the abdomen
seriously. The rebels were completely sur
prised and outwitted.
Capt. Haslett, and a number of other Cap
tains and Lieutenants, and 138 privates, were
taken prisoners at Pulaski, Tenn., on Friday
the 2nd, by 1,000 of Morgan's rebel cavalry,
alter a fight of 2 hours. The prisoners were
afterwards released on parole and are now at
Nashville. Rebel loss C killed and 2 wound

Louisville, May 5. Two thoroughly relia
ble Kentuckians have just arrived here from
New Orleans. They report that all along the
Mississippi, from Memphis to Now Oi leans,
there is one general bonfire of property, par
ticularly of cotton, 11,700 bales of which were
burned at New Orleans. At Memphis, sugar
and molasses in large quantities are on the
bluff ready to be fired ou the approach of" the
Union fleet. The residents of the Union
towns were retreating inward, and destroying
property along all the southern tributaries of
tho Mississippi, The planters, in many cases,
are applying the torch to their own cotton.
The Rebel Government has also boats running
up the river destroying cotton. Only one
planter was found who objected to the burning
of his cotton.
Cairo, May C. The steamer Walsh reached
here this morning from Pittsburg Landing.
The army has advanced so far from the river
that nothing is known of its movements. A
report was current that the rebels had evacu
ated, and that Gen. Pope's army had occupied
Corinth on Sunday. A few regiments were
posted in front who are said to have been ta
ken prisoners. The evacuation of Corinth is
confirmed by a diApalch one day later to the
Chicago Times, which says, that refugee
from Jackson, Miss., reports that the head
quarters of Beauregard are at Pocahontas, and
75,000 troops are concentrated around him.
Gen. Lovell's army at the latest advices was
at Pachapoh oe on the New Orleans and Jack
son railroad, fifty miles north of New Orleans.
Flao Ship Bextox, above Fort Pillow, May
10. The naval engagement, for which tho reb
els have been preparing, took place this morn
ing : The rebel fleet consisting of eight iron
clad gunboats, four of which were fitted up
with rams, came up handsomely. The action
lasted one hour. Two of the tebel gunboats
were blown up, and one sunk, when the enemy
retired precipitately under the guns of the fort.
Only six vessels of my squadron were engag
ed. The Cincinnati sustained sonio injury
from the rams, but will be in fighting condi
tion to-morrow. Captain Stemblo distin
guished himself. lie is seriously wounded
The Benton is uninjured.
Pacucah, May, 5. Jeff. Thompson is in
Western Kentucky with 1000 rebel cavalry.
He came across a company f Curtis' Nebras
ka borso company on the 4th, near Dresden,
and scattered them in every directiou. No
loss ot life. Great excitement exists in the
county relative to this raid of Jeff.
Chicago, May 10. A special dispatch from
Fort Wright says that deserters who arrived
at tho fleet yesterday assert positively that
all the land forces have been withdrawn from
the fort save barely enough to work the guns.
It is said, all the infantry have been seut to
Cairo, May 10. The steamer Roe, from
Pittsburg Landing yesterday afternoon, reports
that one hundred of our cavalry, while recon
noiteringfrom tho left wing on Thursday night,
were surprised by a superior force ot rebels
Exciting from Fortress Monroe.
Fortress Monroe, May 8. Shortly before
noon, to-day, the Monitor, Naugatuck, Semi
nole, Susquehanna, Dacotah and San Jacinto,
in the order in which they are named, steamed
up to Sewell's pQint-!-Capt. Gardiner, of the
Susquehanna, in command of the expedition.
As soon as they arrived within range, they
opened with shot and shell over. Sewell's
Point, most of which were good shots. It
was nearly half an hour before any reply was
made from the point. The Rip Raps next
opened, and then the Naugatuck for the first
time. Several shots werojfired from the single
gun on the extremity of the point, when one
from the Monitor struck in the vicinity, doubt
less disabling the gun, as it has not been fired
since. The position of tho Monitor was far
in advance of the fleet, and she continued in
motion till within a mil or two of the Point,
when considerable execution must have been
done by her acurato firing. The NaugatucK
kept in the back t ground, the range ot her
Parrot gun enabling ber to do so. The Sew
ell's Point battery replied briskly. The Rip
Raps fired occasionally, and a continual Cru
was kept up by the gunboats. Tbe affair was
comparatively uninteresting from this point
of view, on account of the distance being to '
great that the details could not be seen. At
about 1 o'clock a black smoke was ..seen to
rise, wbich it was supposed wss occasioned by
a combustible shell being tbrown into the
woods. It soon died out and disappeared
Nothing more occurred till a littla before 2
o'clock, when the firing was very feeble from
tbe Point. The Monitor about this time re
turned lrom ner advanced position, and re
joined tbe fleet. In he distance nothing of
her could be seen but a small sqtfarc black
spot on the water. About a quarter past two
o'clock, a very dense black smoke arose lapid-
ly from bewelrs Point, probably from tl
burning of the banacks or other. buildings.
At half past two o'clock rhe Merrimac made
her appearance. The fleet bad been lying
quietly at anchor for the past half hour, when
a signal from the flag-sbip ordered them all to
return, Ihe busquehaona led the way, fol
lowed by the San Jacinto, Seminole and Da
cotah the Monitor bringing up the rear all,
apparently, using the greatest speed towards
tbe fort. To the spectators this seemed rath
er mortifying, but as they moved down in line,
the Monitor was observed to halt, and the San
Jacinto and Dacotah, also, followed her exam
ple leaving the Susquehanna and Seminole
moving ahead. The four steamers and the
Monitor, having taken their position, the
Merrimac also halted, and the five vessels
stood thus not more than a mile and a ball
apart. Ihe Merrimac was not, apparently,
willing to come further down, and the Monitor
unwilling to go further up. Tho Minnesota,
also, steamed in front of the wharf of the
fort, fallowed slowly by the Ymderbilt, when
both stopped. After laying in this position
the Minnesota turned round and steamed back,
aud the V anderbilt, without turning, backed
water slowly down tho river. Whilst all this
maneuvering was going on, til ing had entirely
ceased from all points. At 8:40 p. m. tho
Merrimac turns around and steams back tow
ards Norfolk, with her rebel flag flying impu
Despatches from Com. Dupont.
The Navy Department has received dis
patches from Commodore Dupont to day, dated
1 ort lioyal, .May 2d, giving interesting par
ticulars of an exhibition on the 2'Jth ult, with
the Hale, to capture a battery on Grumball

Nicholson, of the Isaac Smith, then stationed
at St. Augustine, having hoard that a schooner
had come In over Matanzas for some thirteen
nines to mo soumvvarci, dispatched three aim
ed, boats together with a detachment of twen
ty-five men from Colonel Bell's command to
capture her, which was done, and the schooner
brought to St Augustine. The schooner was
called the Empire city. She had an English
register and cleared from Nassau lor St Johns,
N. C. Her cargo consisted of provisions, dry
goods, medicines, etc. In consideration of
the fact that the citizens of St Augustine was
without the necessaries of life and with no
means of getting them, Lieutenant Nicholson
sold the cargo, or a portion of it, at auction,
considering the overrulng necessity.
