it uncomfortable visions of obligations long

MaI2RSEIOS Has Fallen.
The great stronghold , of robeldoM -which
has been regarded as thei main protootion of
,Richmond—the Martasses_Juninion—has bpen
`evacuated by tlie - rebelswithoul a battle, and
the Stara and Stripes aro now tloating.ovor
it... Like a •snail, the groat insurrection• is
drawing in its horns; and tacitly . confessing
that it has not power to defend the extend
ed frontier, which it has so long claimed as
its boundary. How far their army will re
treat before it makes another stand cannot
yet bo ascertained ; but inasmuch as the rail
roads which connected the upper part of the
Shenandoah Valley and Alexandria with Rich -
mond, have boon abandoned, and.will soon be
in possession of the Federal troops, it is most
probable that they design to retreat to such
distance as to cause the Government troops
considerable delay in moving their supplies_
and munitions. in the immediate vicinity of
Riohmontl, extensive fortifications have boon
erected, and it is not unlikely that the next
great battle will be fought at that place.
In the,meentime the Confederate Congress
will_ emigrate to a more Southern latitude;
and for a time they will live in the hope that
the war may be so protracted that the warm
weather, unhealthy to .Northern troops, will
come to their aid. Every day is now pre
cious; and if our army bo pushed forward
with sufficent vigor before the end of May,
nothing will be left to them but the rico
swamps and everglades in which to - elabOrate
their magnificent schemes of cotton empire.
We make the following extract from Gen.
Burnside's official report of the taking of
Newborn. It is a flattering tribute to 'the
masterly strategy of McClellan, and fairly
vindicates him from the aspersions of those
persons, who 'scouted with scorn and con
tempt pretentious display of strategy.'?
I beg to say to the General 'Commanding
the army that I have endeavored to carry out
the very minute instructions given me by him
before leaving Annapolis, and thus far events
have been singularly coincident with his an.
tieipations. I only hope that we may in
fuiure be able to carry out in detail the re
maining plans of the campaign ; the only
thing I have to regret is the delay caused by
Democracy in ifs Present Aspect.
The Providence Post, a Douglas paper dur.
ing the last Presidential election, - now - give , s
vent to the following treasonable sentiments ,
Slavery existed in twelve of the thirteen
States when the Government was established,
and did 'not at all interfere with our politi
cal harmony. We agreed to let it alone. If
we had kept our agreement, there would
have been no trouble. But we of the North
set out to legislate for the South, and the
South resisted. Imagining that we meant
to go farther than we had gone or really
intended to go, she organized rebellion—
just as we should have done, probably, if
shiihad in like manner interfered with and
threltened any of our peculiar institutions.
It was interference, arid threatened interfer.
once, or apprehended interference with State
Rights, which caused the rebellion. And
we frankly admit that it we cannot consent
to stop IlTs — Triterce, and all show or
suspicion of it, this particular Federal
Go, eminent which we are now htrugglinkr, to
maintain, must-have an end ;. and we must
hive two or three separate governments—
all Republican it may lie—in its stead. .
Treason more rank; remarks the Philadel
phia P;•es,g, falsehood more brazen, has never
appeared in the Charleston Mercury or
Richmond Enquirer. The victories of our
army and navy, the bravery of Burnside,
and the self sacrificing-patriotism of Sprague,
have not served to moilerate these incarnate
traitors, who, under the name of Democracy,
still insult the loyal people of the loyal
States, and clamor for a division of the
Union, While our iiolliers are fightiki; to
maintain it. It is nnnecessary to unmask
malignants like•these. They glory in their
shame, and court the condemnation of their
countrymen. Let us not be deceived by
entrusting to them the reins of government.
The success of our armies seems to have
so anvered these secret sympathizers with
secession that they aro unable to hide their
feelings, and they unmask themselves in
many different ways, without intending it.
We hope they will soon stand out in all their
hideousness, that wo may know them.

FROM FORT CRAIG
Bloody Fight Between Texan Rebels on the
Rio Grande and a Portion of the Federal
Troops Under Col. Roberts—The Mex
ican Volunteers Become Panic
Stricken and the Rebels
Gain the Day.
ST. Loris, March 13.--.. The Republican
has advices from Albuquerque, NeW Mexico,
to Fel)ruary 23d, giving details of a recent
battle at Fort Craig. The fight commenced
on the morning of the 21st, between a por
tion of our troops under Colonel 'Roberts
and the enemy, across the Rio Grande, with
varied scccess until two o'clock. Colonel
Canby then crossed the river in force with a
battery of six pieces under Captain McCray
of the cavalry, but detailed in command of
the r ,battery. lie bad also a small, battery of
two howitzers The enemy are supposed to
have had eight pieceS The battle was
commenced by the artillery and skirmishers,
and soon became general.
Toward evening most of the enemy's guns
were silenced. They, however, made a
desperate charge on the howitzer battery,
but were repulsed with great lose. Captain
Mr. Cray's battery was defended by Captain
Plimpton's company of 'United States Infan•
try and a portion of Colonel Pinos' regiment
of Mexican Volunteers. The Tetan Rebels
charged desperately and furiously with their
Wicked men, about six hundred strong.
hey were armed With Carbines, revolvers
and long seven-Found bowie-knives. After
discharging their carbines at close distance,
they drew their revolvers, and reached
the battery amid a storm of grape and
canister. The Mexicans of Pinos' regiment
now became panic stricken, and ingloriously
fled. Captain — Plimpton and his infantry
bravely stood their ground and fought well,
till more than ono.hatf of the company were
numbered with the dead.
With his artillerymen cut down and his
supports reported killed, wounded or flying
from the field, Captain MeCray sat down
calmly and quietly on one of his guns, and,
with revolver in hand, refused to fly or desert
his flag. thus fought_ to the last and
gloriously died like a hero, the last man by
his guns. The Texans suffered terribly in
this charge. Many of our officers distin
guished themselves. Major Donaldson, who
was the chief Vile of Colonel Canby, acted
bravely, and was conspicuous in every part
of the field. His horde was. wounded, but
the. Major. was not injured. Kit Carson, in
command of a regiment of volunteers . de
ployed as skirmishers, did good service
during the action and behaved Well. We
have to name the less of Lieutenants Minhier
and Stone, who, like . Captain-MeCray,- nobly
and bravely maintained the honor of our
flag to the last. Many other-officers.were
wounded. Our logs is about two hundred
killetrand wounded: That of the curdy is
'believed to be much greater. 'The greatest

Massachusetts- remment ._who_.bravely fell
while leading on their regiments, in an
attack owthe enemy's batteries at Newbern.
From Major Johnson, who was in the
fight, we gather the following interesting
particulars of the battle :
Our troops, under General Burnside,
landed on Thursday evening near the mouth
of Swan Creek, on the west side of the Nouse
river, fifteen miles below-Newbern. Owing
to the dense fogs, the naval vessels did not
participate in the fight. Early. on Friday
morning the fight commenced. Our troops
advanced along the country rand running
parallel with the Neuse river; but a mile or
two in the rear. The road was skirted on
the west side by a' railroad and a dense
swamp. All along the river side were a
series of batteries, which were taken by our
troops, one after another, after some bloody
hand to hand contests.
Our troops were divided into three brig
ndes, under-the command of Generals Ren
no, Foster and Parks. •
%%e advanced gradually, the enemy desert.
ing their guns, until we reached a line of
earth works extending across the road from
the river to a swamp on the west, a distance
of some two miles. These earthworks were
very strong. They were located about two
miles south of Newbern, and between there
and the city ran the Trent river. The
country road and the railroad passed through
these works, and crossed into the city by
bridges. In front of these works the rebels
had felled a large number of trees, forming
an almost imptimetrable abattis. Efere the
flying rebels were rallied, and made for a
while a desperate stand. Our brave fellows
fought until all their ammunition was spent,
when an order to charge bayonets was given,
and the well's were finally taken at the point
of the bayonet.
The enemy fled like frightened sheep !ear
ing everything behind them. In their retreat
they burned the badges communicating with
the iown, over both the county road and the
railroad. As they had trains of cars in
their rear, just-across the bridges, they were
of course able to carry off their wounded
[AN ' OTI7gR ACCOUNT.,
The Inquirer's special says .the enemy's
works six miles below Newberm were attacked
on Friday morning last. They were defend
ed by a-toree about. ten thousand strong, and
having twenty-one guns posted behind for
midable batteries over two miles long. The
fight was the most desperate of the war. Our
troops behaved with the steadiness and cour
age of veterans, and after_ nearly _four hours
hard fighting drove the rebels out of all their
losigens,_ captured three fight batteries of
field artillery, forty-six heavy siege guns,
large stores of fixed ammunition, three thou
sand small arms and two hundred prisoners,
including one Colonel, three Captains and four
Lieutenants. The enemy left a largo number
of dead on the field.
They escaped by cars to Goldsborough,•

and 4, ing.the,...cityof Newborn. No exten

had been impatiently wailing for an. opportu- ,

The Committee on Dickinson College beg
leave to report that the duty of sustaining oat--
higher institutions of learning is an impor
tant branch 'of benevolent enterprise and an
essential part of the Church's work. The cir
oumstances of the past year have interfered
somewhat with the prosperity of the institu
tion, both as to the number of students and
as to its financial affairs. The College, how
ever, has not suffered more than other ineti
tutions of similar grade, the number of stu
dents in College and Grammar School having
been 156, the number of graduates 17, mak
ing the Whole number of almuni 9 - 11. Your
committee have undiminished confidence. in
the Faculty and administration of the College,
and call special attention to the fact that the
,scholarships are now available for the Gram
mar School as well as to the College. A great
portion of. the patronizing territory of the Col
lege ,is now out off by the condition of our Na
tional affairs,. and your committee recognize
the importance of the friends of the College
standing by it in this period of its history.—
Unforeseen circumstances have prevented the
oolleotion of the revenue by which the Col
loge was to have been supported,) and it is
neoessary that some plan, should e adopted
to relieve its present embarrass outs. The
Trustees of the College propose f r this pUr
pcso to effect a loan from the Board of Educa
tion in the form hereafter stated. Your - eonr;
mitten approve the suggestion of the Board of
Trustees, and propose the follon , ing resolu
