From a gentleman who came direct from Roanoke Island by the Star* and Stripes, we gather thj following Interesting incidents of the battle there; Colonel Russell, of the 10th Connecticut, fell dead from hla horae, at the head of his regiment, while marching againat the enemy. Strange as it any appear, not a scratch was found ?pcn his body, when examined, and bis death must have come from the wind of a cannon hall or from excitement. Lieut. Colonel de Montlel, who volunteered In the assault upon the rebel battery, received his death-wound while heading the advance, and whll? In the act of shouting, "Come on, boys, we'll show tbem how to flght " In the course of the action a shell burst on the U S. gunboat Hetxel, and set her magazine on Are.

A similar occurrence took place on the Ceres, from the hunting of a gun, when Acting Maater Dtarmald sprang Into the magszine and extinguished the fl e. A abell entered the coal bunka of another of our steamers, aettlng them on fire. The flames were subdued with much difficulty, with but little damage to the vessel. 5AVT TARD The King Philip and Leslie were down to the flotilla yesterdav, and returned last night. Af. fairs are unchanged in the lower Potomac. The Harriet Lane is at Indian Head. Great activity still prevails at the yard, and more than seventeen hundred workmen are still employed. A very large proportion of these are engaged in the ordnance department, in the preparation of war material. A Tiansfi* o?

At the same time the Secretary of State is relieved from bis responsibilities in that connetM?. At tbe opening of the rebellion, so heavy were the duties pressing on the War Department In extemporizing an army of 800,000 men to meet civil wmr throughout the whole continent, that the President thought fit, at the request of the Secretary of War, to confide those responsibilities In regard to arrest* of State prisoners, to the Secretary of State. All who are to continue in custody or inav be necessarily arrested hereafter, are, under this order, to be held by the War Department, (from the date of that order.) which Is to have exclusive charge of the subject. Its chief la amply competent to manage the delicate and reaponaible truat with enlarged sagacity and fcrbearance, at the same time not hesltat ng to assume any responsibility in this connection that may be absolutely necessary for the well being of his ch?rge?the restoration of the Union?peaceably, if he can, forcibly, if he ma?t. Wo have alto to add that hereafter the duty of considering applications for passe* to the South baa been devolved by the War Department on 6*n. Dlx,at Baltimore. ITT An order was issued by the V\ ar Department yesterday releasing the political prisoners now incarcerated at Fort Warren and elsewhere, on their subscribing to a parole engaging them to render no aid or comfort to'persons in hostility to the United States This ordsr applies to all persons under arrest, except those held as spies, and others who**? release at the present time would be deemed incompatible with the public aiety.

ITT The publication ef the thrilling telegraphic news to-day compels us tc defer until Monday a quantity of interesting matter ?tt up for to-day's paper, Including tbe important ex. outive order relative to State prisoners, issued bf Secretary Stanton.

It contains nine long It-pounders and one rifled piece, all In perfect order,except a few slight blows inflicted by a dull axe on the wheels ana sliding gear. It may be proper to remark that when the enemy retreated they spiked all the guns In the various forts with temporary nails, 'all of which were extracted without dllflcnlty The battery at Robb's Fishery, on the main land opposite, was composed of several old barges and canal boats, mann -d by three guns.

General Mitchell at onc? set about constructing another, under the protection of his guns. The enemy thereupon last night evacuated their Bowling Green stronghold, of which General Mitchell is now doubtless In powession, as no enemy was left to resist him in raising the Stars and Stripes over It, the river being but to cross. Gen. Buell nad for some days past been concentrating a large force In the neighborhood, with which doubtless to march directly on Nathalie after having reduced Bowling Green. It Is the impression in military circles here, that on evacuating their Bowling Green stronghold last eight, the main body, If not all the rebel army, tied directly towards Nashville; as, to attempt to reinforce Fort Donelson instead, would be well-nigh a hopeless undertaking, and would Inevitably be followed almost Immediately by the fall of Nashville before the main body Buell's army, and the fall of Knoxville before the division "f Gen.

Pawpaw, Va , Feb. II?? p. m.?Major (itneral G .B McCltllan: The railroad was opened to Hancock this morning; also the telegraph. We had an important forced reconnolasanc? last night, which was completed to-day. We broke up the rebel nest at Blooming Gap. We ran down and captured seventeen (17) commissioned officers? among them colonels, lieutenant colonels, captains, Ac. I will forward a descriptive list. We engaged thein with four hundred cavalry. Our Infantry were not near enough to support the cavalry, mid the enemy were retiring. We have in all seventy-five prisoners, and killed thirteen of the entioy. We lost two men and six horses at their first fire. I led the charge in person. It was a complete surprise. Cot. Carroll, commanding the 5th or 8th Ohio, made a very daring and successful reconnoisance immediately afterwards, toUoger's store. Major Frothlngham is entitled to greatcredit for building, under my direction, in four hour*, in the dead of night, a complste bridge across the Great Cacapon, at an unfrequented mountain road. Two columns of 8.000 men each marched thirty-two miles?one oolnmn forty-three mllea, since 4 pm. yesterday, besides bridging the river. Paper* taken, and mf own recornoissance to the aoutb, prove the country clear, and Jackson and Loring in Winchester. We made a move and occupied the Bloomery Gap and Point Mills east, on the belief (by information obtained from deserters) that General Casson's brigade wa< there. Gen Dunning baa Just arrived at New Creek, from Moorfleld, forty miles south of Romuey. He has captured 'iv>o beef cattle, and broke up the guerilla baunt there. Two of his men were badly wounded He killed several of the rebels. The enemy have thus been driven out of this department. * # m (Signed) F W. Landib, Brig. Gen. FORT DONELSON. This forenoon a dispatch reached the Generaltn-Cblef here from Gen. Hal leek at St. Loula, announcing the iuvestment of Fort Doaelson with a force of 30,000 men, aided by the noble fleet of Commodore Foote, and anticipating its speedy reduction. Gen Halleck says that Pillow, Floyd and Buckner are in it, with a fore* of 15,000 men, and b? Is evidently of opinion that his arrangements to cut them ott' from reinforcements will surely be successful. How any portion of the rebel army In Fort Donelson can possibly escape death or capture, is past as to divine. Parties who came up by the Old Point boat say it was reported at Norfolk yesterday that Fort Donelson had been captured. INTERESTING PARTICULARS OF THE CAPTURE OF ROANOKE ISLAND. It was dull and cloudy on Friday evening when the works were first shelled by the sunboats, and on Saturday the rain fell steadily all day without any Intermission. The men were landed at daybreak on Saturday morning, and it was about eleven o'clock when the action commenced At first It assumed somewhat tke character of a brush fight, until the rebels were driven to the center of the island, and the artillery was brought Into requisition. Tke island is about twelve miles Ion*, and the landing was etfected on the mainland side, about four miles from the lower end. At their earthworks in the center there were some fine barracks and storehouses, the latter of which, with all their contents, were burnt by shells from the gunboats The main camp was at the upper end of the Island, where there were fine barracks and an abundance of the necessaries and comforts of camp life Owing to the destruction of the storehouse food was very scarce on the island, and had It not been for the abundance of pigs i running about thee would have been much suf iering on r?anaay ana .Monday. The prisoners were allowed to continue in po??*k*Iou of their camp and barracks, whilst the Federal soldier*, botb officers and men, roughed it n* bent they could on the damp earth The prisoners were, however, when the Stirs and dtrlpes left, being conducted to the lower end of the island to be embarked for New YorkCol Wise was kindly taken care of, and surglcal aid immediately procured for bim. Heap* ]-eared calm, but suffered Intense pain, thougb not seemingly conscious his wound was fatal. He spoke In a firm, frirudly tone to tM surgeon and others Dmr bv, asking if they would not allow him to be aent home until hi* wounds recovered The surgeon, seeing U impossible for him to live, replied: " Yes, you can have all you wsr.t ?' He rapidly grew weak, and expired on the* following morning. His body has bwn carefullv attended to, and will be delivered to hi* irtt-iuls on call. \i :s believed the Immediate object of Gen. is tu possess points in North Carolina Miierr the railroads can be commanded. He i JZ considers Norfolk and Portsmouth now?with the advantage* of holding Roanoke Island?entirely vlttiin his control. The wounded of both partlea are being carefully attended to. Energetic < fforts were making to discover and relieve all who may have been wounded, and secreted themaelvea in the woods, marshes. and awampa, where mmy have been found, brought Into camp, and t^eir wounds dressed by both the Federal and Confederate surgeons. Trophies of various kinds were picked up, amongst which were Confederate flags, private letters, military orders, and some Confederate money, in the shape of bonds. The Richmond Blues fought with desperation and s;reat bravery. They lost more men proportionately than any other company killed and wounded. * The Federal troops, without distinction, are reported as having Dehaved courageously. No vandalism was permitted by Gen. Burnside by his troops after the victory. The Confede a?e'prisoners bore their misfortune with becoming philosophy. All indications scow Gen. Burnside to be pre puiujl mi oiuri acuvr aiiu uii^uriani operations. GEN. BURNSIDE'S DISPATCH HfaJc/uarters Department, S. C. ) Roanoke Island, Feb. 10, 1862. 5 Major Gtn George B MrClellan. commanding U. S. Army, Washington. General: 1 have the honor to report that a combined attack upon this inland was commenced on the morning of the 7th. by the naval and military forces of tuls expedition, which has resulted In the capture of six forts, forty gum, over tteo thousand prisoners, and uptcards of three thousand small arms. A mong the prisoners are Col Shaw, commander of the Island, and O. J. Wise, commander of the Wise Legion. The latter was mortally wounded and has since died The whole work was finished on the afternoon of the S'.h, after a hard day's fighting, by a brilliant charge in the center of the Island, resulting In the capture of the prisoners mentioned above. We have bad no time to count them, but the number Is estimated at near 3,000 Our men fought bravely and have endured most manfully the hardships incident to fighting through swamps and dense thickets. It Is impossible to give the details of the engagement, or to mention meritorious officers and luru ill iur luvn umc aiiowfa lor writing ttlts report, the naval vessel carrying it starting immediately for Hampton Roads, and the reports of the Brigadier Generals have not yet been handed In. It is enough to >ay that the officers and men of both arms of the service have fought gallantly, and the plans agreed on before leaving Hatteras Inlet were carried ont. I will be excmed for saying, In reference to the action, that I owe everything to Genu Foster, Rena and Parker, as more full details will show. I am so?ry to report the loss of about thirty-five killed and about two hundred wounded?ten of them probablv mortally. Among the kilied are Col Russell, of the 10th Connecticut, and Lt. Col. Victor I) Monteil, of the DeF.spinenil Zouaves. Both of them fought most gallantly. I regret exceedingly not being able to send a full report of th# killed and wounded, but will send a dispatch in a day or two with full returns. I beg leave to enclose a copy of a general order issued by me on the 9th. 1 am most happy to say that I have just received a menage rrom Commander Goldsborough, statin); that the expedition of hlsgunboats against Elizabeth City and the rebel fleet has been entirely successful He will, of course, send his returns to this Department. I have the honor to be, General, your obedient servant, A. K BuansiDi. Brigadier General Commanding Department of North Carolina.
