On our first page will be found au able and
graphic sketch of t •W hisk ey Insurrection,"
which occurred in Western Pennsylvania, in
the latter part of the last century, and du
ring the Administration of President WAyl
INOTON. It will be seen, that then, as no v,
the leaders of the rebellion were all active
and influential democrats, or rather dema
gogues, who by falsehood and misrepresenta
tion mislead one portion of the people, and
by lawlessness and violence overawed the law
acid order abiding portion of the community.
A careful perusal of the sketch referred to,
will show the reader that the outlaws then
pursued precisely the same measures to in
timid lte the people and suppress public Sen
timent as -did the Southern Rebels at the
commencement of this unholy and insane
rebellion. Did a man raise his voice against
the open violation of law, tar and' feathers
were applied to his person,-hie roof giVen to
the flames, and his property destroyed. Such
was the course pursued by the Southerp
rebels. Did a Union man venture to remon
strate against the hot-headed measures of
these modern demagogues, his life was in
jeopardy, and to escape the tyranny of the
armed mob, he had either to flee from hie
home or silently acquiesce in the measures' of
the self-constituted leaders. Public senti
ment, was completely crushed out, and the
party demagogues had it all- their own way.
At the present time there are thousands of
Union-loving men in the South who are only
waiting a fitting opportunity to strike for
freedom, to crush King Mob, and renew their
allegiance to the Federal Government

-It seems that President Lincoln and-Secre
tary 'Stanton, some three weeks ago,.took the
management of this war in their own hands.
The President thinks that the time has ar
rived whoa he should assert the prerogative's
guarinteed him by. the Constitution,, and
exrecise practically the powers ,with which
he is vested. Immediately upOrt: the an-'
nouncement of his determination, some of
the sensation press - set up the cry that McClel
lan had been superseded in the command of
the armies, and did not longer discharge the
functions of Commander-in• Chief. As the
self-appointed advocates of the young Gener
al-have darkened the facts of the case, below
we give the realconclition of things, from the
New York Tribune.
Gen. McClellan remains the senior Major-
General and titular chief commander. in the
armies of the Union, being superior in rank
to every other officer, Gen. Fremont and
Gen. Halleck ranking next after him.
lie also commands the army of the Poto
mac as horotoforb.
His advice is constantly sought by the
President (as is that of other competent men)
as to the conduct of the oanipaign, and where
it is approved it is followed. As yet, howev
er, we believe the instances of serious disa
greement have been few ; but there have been
such instances, when the President acting
upon his own judgment, has given orders
contrary to the wish of Gen. McClellan.
The most important change in this diroo
lion made since the advent of the new Secre
tary of War have consisted in ordering the
commanders of Western Departments, Gen.
Briell, Gon. Haßeck, and Gen. Gunter,. to
report directly to the War Department,
instead of reporting to Gen. McClellan, as
heretofore ; and in putting• them into official
communication and co-operation with each
other, which Gen. McClellan had refused or
neglected to do. Thus, for instance, it was
previously necessary for Buell and Halleck
to go to McClellan at Washington for leave
or for orders, in case they wished to make
any combined movement. Now they have
the necessary freedom of action ; and when
soever, for instance, Gen. Halleck and Gen.
Popo feel themselves sure of taking Price and
his army captive, as we know they felt about
six weeks ago, and have made-all -their or
rangeinCtits for the purpose, they 0411 no
longer be forbidden to strike the' blow by
telegraph from the senior Major General. Or
when Gen.-Halleck-sees that as Fort -Colum=
bus is -half under water, now is the day to
attack it he will be allowed to act upon his
own judgement as a man fit to command a
hundred 'should be, dna to go
In fine, let it be observed that tho time has
come for real war, and not for a poor tinsel
of it_Earnestness and inflexible determina
tion are now at the helm, and the ship will
sail OCI. If Gen. McClellan has any power of
fighting in hint or any' strategic genius, he
will have ample opportunities CO prove it;
but the salvation of the Republic is no longer
to be postponed or perilled for the sake of
oysters and champagne on the Potomac. Nor
lot any fool set up . the cry of a conspiracy .
of the "Radicals" against him or any offer
man. What the Radicals conspire against is
the - Rebellion ; what - they havt prayed for is
the coming of the man who will ptit,: ; :it down.
And their-belief is that the present Secre
tary of War is a man of that sort. In this
they neither ask nor care about the Secreta
ry's opinions on slavery. They believe that
he is terribly in earnest ; that with him the
Integrity of- the nation is no matter of parade

ARREST OF GEN. STONE.—Experience is
a dear schoolmaster, it is said, and oven
nations may profit by no other. Gen. Stone,
has been the most zealous of all our Gener
als in catching slaves., and outraging the
loyal sentiments of Northern soldiers by
obliging diem to act the part of hounds to
hunt fugitives. He was careful to return
the slaves of rebels, and sent flags of truce
across the Potomac for this purpose In
fact he never displayed so much enemy, as
when performing the dirty work'Of kidnap-

made against him are :
First—of misconduct at the battle of
Ball's Bluff; second—of holding correspon

same battleland of having received,the visits
of rebel officers in his camp ; third—of
treachery in suffering the enemy to build a
fort under his guns, since the before-men

design to expose his command to capture
and destruction by the rebels, under pretense
of orders from the General-M-Chief, which
orders were never given. - •
In view of these terrible charges, Gen
Stone may well reflect on the recent express.

WASHINGTON, Feb. 15th, 18$2
The President, commander in-chief of the
army and navy,, returns - thanks to Brigadier
Gen. Burnside and Flag Officer Goldshorough,
and to Brigadier General Grant and Flag Of
ficer Foote, and the land and naval forces un
der their respective commands, for their gal

Island and Fort Henry.
While it will be no ordinary pleasure - for
him to acknowledge and reward in a becoming
manner the valor of the living,_he also recog-
nizes it as his duty to pay O . fitting_looor to
the memory of the gallant dead. The charge
at Roanoke Island, like the bayonet charge at
Mill Springs, proves that the close grapple
and sharp steel of loyal and patriotic soldiers
must always put rebels to flight.
The late achievements of the navy show thnt
the flag of the Union onoe borne in proud glo
ry around the world by naval heroes, will
soon again float over every rebel city and

and Union in every land and upon every sea.

THE BURNSIDE EXPEDITION.
PARTICULARS OP . THE BATTLE
[Special Correspondent of the Baltimore American.]
FORTRESS NIONROE, January .13,1862.
The steamer Stars and Stripes came in -at
noon to-day with a flag at her mainmast and
stern, and all the evidences of' bringineglo
rious tidings. Her approach attracted great
attention, and it was soon ascertained that she
brought tidings direct from the BurOgide ei
pedition, and as the boat reached the wharf
those who landed were 'soon surrounded with
eager inquirers of the result of the expedition,
and the following questions were propounded
and quickly answered:
Q.—What's the result of the expedition ?
A.= We have cleaned the 'Rebels out of the
island and captured and burnt most of their
fleet,—taking three thousand prisoners.
Q —How many wore killed on the Federal
Q.,flow many wounded?
A —The number_of. the wounded wne not

from Ntig's Mad towaii Com
modore Goldsborough had started up Curri•
tuck Sound towards Norfolk with a gunboat
and several armed cutters in the endeavor to
overtake and capture him. The anxiety to
capture him was very great.
Q.—What became of his son, Captain O.
Jennings Wise, of the Richmond Blues ?
A —lie was slightly wounded on • the field
at the head of his battalion and was endeav
oring to escape in a boat with some others,
when he was hailed to surrender, but refusing
to do so was fired upon and Mortally wouii••
ded. They then surrendered, and he was ta•
Iten prisoner, and died the next morning from
the effects of three bn let wounds.
Q--Ilow -many of the Rebels' were killed
and wounded in the engagement ?
A.—Their killed and wounded aro not very
heavy, for the reason that they broke and ran
as soon as our men captured their main bat
tery at the point of , .the bayonet. This was
done by the Hawkins Zouaves and the Twenty
first Mlssachusetts, who made a brilliant
charge directly in the face of their, guns driv
ing the whole garrison out of the entrench
ments in the centre of the Island. The
of Rebels killed was estimated at about sixty,
and the wounded at two•hundred.
4-1-lovr many , prifinners wbre taken?
SA.—We have taken nearly three thousand
piisouers, who will probably arrive at New
York on Friday or Saturday, on the steamers
Spaulding and George Peabody.
Q.—When did the fight commence ?
A.—We commenced with a reconnoistance
by the gunboats on Friday afternoon, shelling
the,lower end of the island partly silencing
the guns at that. point Night closing in wo
ceased firing until Saturday morning, when
the bombardment was recommenced, and
about ten thousand troops landed on the south
ern end of the Island.
Q.—After the landing was; effected, what
became of the gunboats?
A.—They steamed up the channel along
side of the island, and drove the Rebels from
them into their entrenched camp at the upper
cud of the island. The army having lauded,
about. seven thousand of them marched in
three divisions towards the cents° of the island
to attack the main body. As tffey approached
the earthworks of the enetriy they were found
to have several guns in position to cover the
approaches. When within a mile of their bat
teries the Rebels opened lire and the Federal
troops fell on their faces, allowing the balls to
pass over. them. They continued thus to ap
proach the batteries for a mile with but. slight
loss, and finally, when close enough charged.
the earthworks at double quick, first.firing a
volley and then rushing with charged bayo
nets over the entrenchments. As the Feder
oral troops entered they abandoned their guns
and ran out at the other side, towards the up•
per end of the island. They made but a poor
fight, and ran at Buil Run speed as soon as
they were brought to close quarters.
Q.—Did any portion of these troops exhibit
A.—A battalion in charge of their princi
pargurts, the Richmond Blues, showed some
bravery, but the balance fled, without searce•
ly firing a gun, so soon as the entrenchments
Q,—What became of the gunboats ?
A.— So soon as the landing was safely ef
fected Com. Goldsborough steamed up the
channel, firing at all the Rebel troops that
were in sight, driving them out of the earth
works commanding the channel.
Q.—Did the Rebel gunboats make any
A.--Very little. When Com. Goldsborough's
fleet appearednt the upper end - of the island
they turned and fled, and were hotly pursued
'towards Elizabeth City. So soon as overta

and some 'severe fighting is said to have tn.;
ken place on the Rebel &eke. They were
nearly all then captured, and most of them
burned, the vieters..confinuing on. their pur
suit to prevent any of them from escaping.--
Three or four were captured and'-retained,
and the balance burnt. The crews of most
them made their eseapo 1.1 . a the shore by swim•
ming, without oven-an attempt at resistance.
Q.—Was Elizabeth City burned?
A.—There was an earthwork defohcling
the approach to Elizabeth City which was
feebly worked for some time, doing little or
no damage. So' soon as the gunbouts'got
the range of it and .commenced_ dropping
their shells in_ and around it the military,
abandoned it, and soon after the flames
burst out in the lower part of the oily. A
flag of truce from the citizens was then sent
out to Com modore kioldsborough asking him
-to send-a- foree—on - shore- to- extinguish-the

letting the water out. They were rePorted to
bediground in consequence.
Q 7 ,:130w many gunboats went up to Eliza
beth City ?
A —There were fifteen of our•gunboats in
the fleet that started for Elizabeth City on
Sunday. Most of the enorny's gunboats were
new ashore and abandoned, and we fired
several of them. Three were captured, and
one now is in the Federal service.
Q.—Were any of our officers killed ?
A.—Yes, Cot. Russel, of the Ttnith Connec.
flout Regiment, was killed, and Lieut. Cul.
Vigner da Monteil,'of - thirlYErenetiirZiffffiVeS . ,
who was a volunteer, was killed. No other
@floor was killed above (he rank of Lieutenant.
- Q. —How many officers-are-among-- the-pri ,
A.—We have about fifteen Colonels, Lieu
tenant Colonels and Majors, and fifty or sixty
Qaptains and Lieutenants.
•Q —Wore all the military in the fight?
A.—No. The 89th New York, the Bth and
9th Connecticut, the 6th New Hampshire, and
the'4Bth Pennsllvania were left. at Hatteras.
Q.—How manly guns were captured ?
A.—Forty two large guns, and about one
dozen field pieces. There were also captured
about 4,000 stand of arms of all descriptions.
Q.—liew many field pieces were landed by
Gen. Burnside ?
A.—Five or six, principally field howitzers.
They were landed on the edge of a marsh, and
the: men were compelled to drag them for
about 100 yards, through the water up to their
breasts.' They were finally served, and did
good execution in covering the approach, of
the storming parties.
Q —What was done with the prisoners?
A.—They were allowed to continuein pos
session of their camp and barracks, whilst the
Federal soldiers, both officers and men, rough
ed it as best they could on the damp earth.—
The prisoners were, however, when the Stars
and Stripes loft, being conducted to the lower
end of the island to be embarked for N. York.
Q —Had the navy or the army tho most
credit. in the captiire of the island ?
A.—Both ante l,ir admirably thioughonta and
both evincedl,co7" , uch headlong impetuosity..
The island was urilloubtedly taken by the land
forces, as the Rubel batteries in the centre of
the island, behind which they made a stand,
could not be reacaed by the shells from the
gunboats. In making the advance to these
earthworks the Federal troops had in p as s
through deep marshes, sometimes up to their
armpits. All scented to be inspiredylit,th

Q —Was there to faltering among our men?
A.—Not in the least. ho whole work
could have been done with less loss of life had
it not been for the impetuosity of the men,
who c,nuld not be controlled by their officers.
Tho navy did all that was required of it in
covering the landing and silencing the shore
batteries, and nitimittely disposing of the Re
bel fleet. It may, therefore, be regarded as
a joint victory of the army and navy.
CAPTURE OF FORT DONELSON
The great victory of the war hos been ac
complished, and the National flag was placed
on Sunday morning by our victorious troops
over Fort Donelson. The completeness of
the victory, and its important bearing npon
the issue of the war, is patent to even the
most unwilling understanding. Tennessee is
now open to our victorious troops. They
have only the remains of a defeated and de
moralized army to overcome at Clarksville
provided that even a stand is made there—
and Nashville will be in our possession. The
great river routes into the centre of rebellion
—the Tennessee and the Cumberlrnd—are
opened as the highways of our army, and
Columbus is so isolated that, no longer a Gib
raltar, it can scarcely be. considered tenable.
The valor of our troops which has won these
victories is not lees remarkable than the stra•
tegetioal skill which planned the campaign.
We have not merely fought and won battles,
but we have.,acoomplislied triumphs of mili
tary skirl:in:Arcing the line of the enemy at
its . most vital point.
.The Fort surrendered at nine o'clock on
Sunday, morning to the land forces, under
Gen, U. S. Grunt, ,the gunboats not taking
part in the final assault. The loss of life on
both sides was severe, necesi3arily so - upon
ours in taking by assault a position so strong
ly fortified. Whilst this must be regretted, it
is also to be 'gloried in as establishing beyond
all future cavil the bravery and steadiness of
our soldiers. TO take a fortified pbsition by
assault is work to try the nerve of veterans,
and When accomplished by volunteers, in the
face of a resistance alike able and dssporate,.it
speaks well for Hie spirit.of both officers and
men. The force Within the Fort is stated at
from twenty to thirty thousand men. CRiu.,
Foote, in his official despatch, states that we:
have taken fifteen . thousand prisoners, and

gades—about twelve thousand men—it is
believed that the whole of the forces re
cently at Bowling Green had been concentra
ted at Fort Donelson. The major part of Gen,
Sydney Johnston's arrofis thus annihilated,
and the Commander in• Chief a prisoner.. It
is supposed that what is left of the Rebel
force will concentrate at Clarksville, and
there make their final attempt to obstruct our
Progress to Nashville. On our side the prep
arations for an overwhelming movement into
Tennessee are obvious, All the troops in
camps of instruction are ordered forward.—
We have already eighty thousand men on the
Cumberland, and from these camps forty thou
sand additional troops will go forward. The
Divisions of Generals McCook and Thomas,
unable to roach East Tennessee, through the
Cumberland Gap, on account of the roads,
have already, been sent up the. Cumberland
river. General Buell will probably command
the centre column, whilst Gen. Grant advert
cos on the west side of the Cumberland river.
If the Rebels halt at Clarksvillot hey will have
a repetition of Fort Donelson. They will be
surrounded by land and bombarded from the
river In all probability within the next ten
days the Stars and Stripes will flout from the
Capitol at Nashville.

The Capture of Savannah
Parties who came down from Norfolk to
Old Point on Sunday not only reported the
surrender of Fort Donelson, but also stated
that fighting had been going on near Savan
nah, and that the city had probably been cap-
Anted by-the-Federal-forces. -T-he-former-re—
port has already been confirmed, and it is
quite probable that the latter is equally true.
Our West news from Port. Royal, it will be
recollected, left our land naval forces both in
movement toward Savannah.
The announcement of the biking of Fort
Donclson was made in both liousis of Con

from the floor and_ Ike galleries. Even the
Senate forgot its dignity in patriotic acclama•

genuity decided that the applause was no
breach of order, inasmuch its it was not a
mark of approbation or disapprobation direct
ed against any Senator.
The announcement of the surrender of Fort
Donelson was received with the greatest joy
and patriotic rejoicing in the loyal cities on
Monday. In Boston, New York, Philadel•
phis and St. Louis flags were flung out, the
streets thronged, and the most ardent con
gratulations exchanged. Preparations aro
