Cul'om, Chiif of Staff, Z)epartnfvt of Missouri ; General?I am pleased to announce to you the unconditional surrender, this morning, of Fort Douelson. with twelve or fifteen thousand prisoners, at least forty pieces of artillery, and a lar^e amount of stores, horses, mules and other public property. I left Fort Henry on tha 12th inst., with a force of ahont 15 000 men. divid?<t ir.tn two Ai. visions, under the command of Gtns. McClernand and Smith. Six regiments were sent eroand by water the day before, convoyed by gunboat. or, rather, started one day later than one of the gunboats, and with instructions not to paw it. The troops made the march is good order? the bead of the column arriving witbia two miles of the fort at 12 o'clock m. At this point the enemy's picket* were met and driven in. The fortifications of the enemy were from this point gradually approached and surrounded, with ooeaaion&I skirmishing on the line. The following day. owing to the non-arrivai of the gunboat and reinforcements gent by water. uw nun uiwuv. 'H? iuv iUi OO lUiOU b WU extended on the flanks jf the enemy and drawn closer to his works,with skirmishing all day. The evening of the 13th the gunboats and reinforcements arrived On the 14th a gallant attack was made by Flag Officer Foote upon the enemy's works with his fleet. The engagement lasted probably one hour and a half and bid fiir to result favorably to the cause of the Union, when two unlucky shots disabled two of the armored gunboats, so that they were carried back by the current. The remaining two were very much disabled also, having received a number of heavy shots about the pilot houses and other parts of the vessels. After these mishaps I concluded to make the investment of Fort Donelson as perfeet as poe,;LI. J 4?.?i_ * 1 *? -3 - note, uin pmniauj loruij ma await repairs to gunboats. This plan was frustrated, nowever, bj the enemy making a most vigorous attack upon our right wing, commanded by Gen. J. A. MoCiernand, with a portion of the force under Gen L Wallace The enemy were repelled after a clesely contested battle of several hoar*, in which oar loss was heavy. The officers, and particularly field-officers, suffered out of proportion. I have no means yet of determining our loss even approximate. IT, bat it oannot fall short of 1.200 killed, wounded, and missing. Of the latter, I understand through Oen. Buckner, about 250 were taken prisoners. I shall retain enough of the enemy to exchange for them, as they were immediately shipped off and not left for recaDture About the close of th? action the ammunition in the cartridge boxes gave out, which, with th* loss of many of the field officers, produoed great oonfusion in the ranks. Seeing that the enemy did not take advantage of this fact, I ordered charge upon the left?enemy's right?with the division under General C. F. Smith, which was most brilliantly executed, and gave to our arms full assurance of victory. The battle lasted until dark, giving us possession of par; of their intrenchments. An attack was ordered upon their other flank, after the charge by General Smith was commenced, by the divisions under Generals McClernand and Wallace, which, notwithstanding the hours oi exposure to a heavy fire in the fore part of the day, was gallantly made and the enemy further repulsed. At the points thus gained, night having eome on, all the troops encamped for the night, feeling 'hat a complete victory would erown their labora at aa early boor in the moraine. This morning, at a very early hoar, Gen. S. B Backner tent message to onr camp nnder a flag of truce, proposing an armutice, Ac. A copy of the eorrespondenoe which ensued is herewith accompanied I eannot mention individuals who specially distinguished themselves, bat leave that to division, and brigade officers, whose reports will be forwarded as soon as received. To division commanders, however, Gens. MeClernand. Smith and Wallace, I mast do the justice to sav that each of them were with tneir commands in the midst of danger, and were always ready to execute all orders, no matter what the exposure to themselves. P At the hoar the attack was made on Gen. MoCleraand's command I was absent, having received a note from flag-officer Foote request. ? _ ... ? .v.! ? V_ u_: A- ?

The House wu engaged on Saturday in a discussion of the past and future oonduct of the war. Mr. Bojoe. of S. C., argued at some length in advocacy of an offensive policy. The plan he proposed waa the appointment of a comirander-in-chief of the army, and leave to him the direction of military operations, and suggested Toombs, who possessed the revolutionary spirit. In his opinion the great error was in not prosecuting the war more vigorously in the beginning, when the North was comparatively unprepared, ana wnen iter 75.000 thr?e months' men were gathered at Washington, 8g it were, on a kind of Fourth of Ju'y celebration. Mr Maohen, of Ky., replied to Mr. Royce He said that when the House undertook to act upon the conduct of those who had the management of our campaigns, he fbought they bouli arraigned before the House with a fair show for defense. He asked gentlemen, before they raised the banner of aggression, to demonstrate the feasibility of that policy. We were usurping power belonging to ethers when we attempted to dictate the policy for conducting this war.
