THE EVENING STAR W. D. WALLACH, ?-lteraad Prssrleter. WASHINGTON CITY : FRIDAY...SEPTEMBER 2, 1M4, ?9-BIADINO MATTER ON EVERY PAO?. BEB OUTSIDE FOR INTERESTING TELE GRAPHIC AND OTHER MATTER. _ OFFICIAL REPORT OF THE CAPITU LATION OF FORT MORGAN. Disgraceful Conduct of the Rebel Officer?. The Navy Department this morning received tbe following interesting dispatches concern ing tne capitulation of Fort Morgan : FLA08H1F Hartkord, West Gulf Blockading Squadron, Mobile Bay, Ang. 23, left!.?Sir : I had tbe nonor, in my dispatoh No. 366, to report to tbe Department that Fort Morgan had snrren deredeon the 23d inst. to the army and navy, though at the time tbat dispatch was written and mailed the ceremony of surrender had not actually taken place. The correspondence preliminary to that event ia herewith lor warded (marked Nos. 1,2, 3, and 4) and tbe Department will perceive that the terms of capitulation were the same as in tbe case of Fort Game?. General Page en deavored to obtain more favorable terms, but without success. I regret to state tbat after the assembling of tbe officers at tbe appointed hour, (0 p. m,) for tbe surrender, outside the fort, it was discovered, on an examination of the interior, that most of tbe guns were spiked, and many of the gun carriages wantonly injured, and arms, ammu nition, provision, Ac, destroyed, and that there was every reason to believe that this had been doae alter tbe wbite flag bad been raised, lt was also discovered tbat (renerai Page aad several of bis officers had no swords to d?lirer up, and, further, that some ot those which were surrendered had been broken. Tbe whole conduct of the officers of Fort Gaines and Fort Morgan presente such a striking contrast m moral principle tbat I can not tail to remark upon it. Colonel Anderson, who commanded the former, finding himself in a position perfectly untenable, and encumbered with a superfluous number of conscripts, many of whom were mere boys, determined to sur render a fort wbich he could not defend, and in tbis determination was supported by all bis officers save one, but from the moment he hoisted tbe white flag he scrupulously kept everything intact, and in that condition deliv ered it over; whilst General Page aud his officers, witb a childish spitef nlness, destroyed tbe guns wbich tbey bad said tbey wonld defend to tbe last, but which they never de fended at all, and threw away or broke those weapons which they bad not the manliess to use against their enemies, for Fort Morgan never fired a gun after the commencement of tbe bombardment, and the advanced pickets of our army were actually on its glacis. As before stated, the ceremony of surrender took place at two p. m , and that same after noon all the garrison were sent to New Orleans in the U S. steamers Tennessee and Bienville, where they arrived safely.

Attempt ef thP Rebel Raiders to Destroy Sherman's RA?road Communications? Rssseau en then' Track with a Large Ferce. Louikvilln, Sept. 1.?Fifteen guerrillas, nnder Billy McOrande, are reported to have thrown an engiue off the track of the Lebanon branch of the railroad to-day, eix miles from New Hay??l Th-y burned tbe express bag gage car, robbed the passengers, and then left in the direction of Bardstown. Jessey's gang of two hundred guerrillas re luraed te-day from a raid to the Oblo river, nnd encamped four miles from New Castle. Th* Inhabitants of that town momentarily ap prehend an attack. Passengers from Nashville say tbat Wheel er, Forrest and Roddy are engaged tearing up the track of the Great Western Railroad be tween Nashville and the Tennessee river. The Nashville TTmnn says that Rosseau has made such a disposition of bis force that these rebel commands cannot injure the railroad, and that Rosseau has gone out to gire Wheeler battle. LATER.

Sept.l.?A rebel force,estimated at ??,??? strong, with twelve guns, were within 17 miles oi Nashville, on the Murfreesboro' pike, at daylight this morning. Major Gen. Rosseau, with a body of cavalry and infantry, started yesteiday afternoon and met the ene my'? advance early this morning. Sharp skir misbing ensued, with varying success. At the last accounts Rosseau had driven the rebels tbree miles towards Murfreesboro. Messengers from tbe advance report that Wheeler's whole force is between this city and Murfreesboro. There is a considerable force of rebels at Lebanon. Prisoners and some wounded have been sent in trcm Rosseau'? front. FROM THE ARMY OF THE POTOMAC. Fifteen-inrh Present? for the Rebel?? The latest information from the Army of the Potomac ia tbat Wednesday passed without any changes in the relative position? of the opposing armies which can be of any interest to tbe general reader. The monster fltteen-tnch mortar, mounted on a railroad car, has recently been run up the road opposite to Petersburg, and a few ?hells thrown by It into tbe city. Tbe object of this was to deter the rebel? from firing on our pick ets, and it seems to have been partially eue - cessful. |_ Pbbsowal.?Mr. John Savage has gone to New Orleans, to assume the editorship of the Hew Orleans Da?y Times, the new Union P*P?'? ___ b7 Ex-Representative R.

DRAFT-OUR QUOTA. Provost Marshal Putnam has nearly com pleted his preparations for tbe draft, which, it Is expected, will take place on Tuesday, al though no official order to tbat effect has been issued as yet. Tbe actual quota of the District of Colombia for 500,000 men is 2,910, which has been reduced by enlistments, representative substitutes, and excess over former calls, 685, leaving 2,225 men yet to be furnished, to which will be added, in case the draft takes place, one hundred per cent., making a grand total of 4,450 names to be drawn from the wheel. The enlistments in the navy and regular army for the last ten days of August have not been received, but they will not reduce these figures materially. Representative substitutes and volunteers may reduce the number some what, as they wUl be received np to the last moment before the draft IMPORTANT ORDER? IN RELATION TO RBBEL DESBRTSRS. Gen. Cirant has issued an order from his headquarters in the field, under date of August 28, which directs that hereafter deserters from tbe Confederate army, who deliver themselves np to the United States, will, on taking an oath tbat they will not again take up arms during the present rebellion, be furnished subsistence and free transportation to their homes, if the same are within the lines of Federal occupa tion. If their homes are not within such lines, they will be furnished subsistence and free transportation to any point in the northern States. All deserters who take the oath of allegiance will, if they desire it, be given employment In the quartermaster's and other departments of the army, and the same remuneration paid them as is given to civilian employes for similar services. Forced military duty, or services endanger ing tbem to capture by the Confederate forces, will not be exacted from snch as give them selves up to the United States military au thorities. In addition to the above, Provost Marshal General Fry has issued an order exempting rebel deserters from the draft, and prohibiting them from being received as substitutes or re cruits. These orders will have the tendency of in creasing desertions from the rebel army, and will cause many to come within our lines who were heretofore deterred from doing so by fear of beine- placed iu the military service of the United States, where they would be exposed to capture and punishment by the Confeder ates, from whom they could expect no mercy. ARRF.ST OF DISLOYAL CITIZENS OF VIR GINIA. Onr troops stationed in Fairfax and London counties, Va., having been greatly molested of late by bushwhackers, it has been determined to put a stop to it by arresting the disloyal citizens of the neighborhood, many of whom are believed to be connected with these rebel gangs. Yesterday 32 warm rebel sympa thizers, residing in the counties above named, were brought to this city and committed to the Old Capitol to await an investigation. Among the number were two who bear the title of "Reverend." They were all brought to the city on horseback and in wagons, and as tbey were nearly all dressed in "grey" or "home spun" it was difficult to tell them from the genuine "Johnnies." Twenty-two horses, picked up in Virginia by our troops, the own ers of which are unknown, bnt are supposed to belong to the bushwhackers, were sent in with these disloyal men, and were placed in the Government stables for the present. ON A LBAVB OF ABSENCE. Capt. J. T. Potts, commanding officer of the military detectives and patrols at tbe head quarters ot the Military District of Washing ton, left the city for the North this morn ins;, on a fifteen days' leave of absence. Lieut W. H. Tyrrell, of the Veteran Reserve Corps, will have charge of tbe office during Capt. Pott's absence. _._ RELEASED. Thirty more of the sixty rebel sympathizers and suspicious characters arrested in London county, Va., a week or two ago, were released from the Old Capitol yesterday upon their pa role of honor, not to do anything injurious or detrimental to the United States Government. RKUBL OFFICERS. Lieut. J. H. Franklin, of the 28th Virginia, and Lieut. It. M. Hammer, of the 56th Vir ginia, who were captured by a portion of the Army of tbe Potomac, and sent to Point Look out, were transferred to thus city yesterday, and committed to the Old Capitol. 9?G The Democrats of New York held a mass meeting in the City Hall Park on Wednesday evening, to ratify the nomination of George B. McClellan by the Chicago Convention.

Sommes called the meeting to order, and on his motion Mr. Crosby S Noves was elected chairman, and Mr. Wm. J. Murtagh secretary. Tbe chair read the call for the meeting and made some remarks explanatory of the condition of the Ward quote, urging, that in view of the short time intervening before the draft, that prompt and active measures should be taken. Mr. Sommes stated that, from th? best infor mation he could obtain, the city's quota re maining to be filled wonld amount to 2,200. The entire credit thus tar would not amount to more than 600 or 70?. The Ward quota was 332?60 of which had been furnished, leaving a balano? of 271. This nnmber be thought would be reduced to 250. _??_ Mr. R. F. Bartle nrgad the importance of dif ferent suggestion?, ia order that the beat mode might be adopted Mr. Thomas E. Lloyd addressed the meeting at some length, calling attention to the meas ures that had been adopted in other placea to meet the draft, and concluded by movine that a committee of ten be appointed to organise an Exemption Fund Association. After some debate by various gentlemen pre?? ent the following committee were elected : Messrs. T. E. Lloyd, on airmen, W. J, Kar tagh, O. O. Anderson, ?. ?. Hoswell, Dr. R O. Croggon. Wm. S. Davis, W. J. Foster, Wm. Cammack, John H. Bird, J. R. El van?. On motion ot Mr. Barde, Mr. J. H. Semmes "sras elected treasurer and ex-officio member ot tbe committee. Mr. O. C. Anderson moved that the member ship fee be fixed at S100. After some debate as to the propriety of leaving tbe matter with the committee, th? motion was adopted. Mr. Lloyd moved that the committee be di? rected to notify the citizens ot the ward, through tbe papers, ot the formation of tbe association; wbich was carried. It was moved and carried that none but resi dents of the ward should be admitted into the association. The Chair said it bad better be understood bow this money was to be appropriated, whether in buying substitutes for those drafted, ordistribnted pro rata amongst them, according to the plan adopted in Georgetown and at the City Hall meeting. Mr Semmes moved tbat tbe money be di vi tied pro rate, amongst those drafted and held to service The motion was carried, but sub sequently Mr. Semmes moved its reconsidera tions, as in case only a small number were drafted and beld it might be expedient to buy substitutes for those drafted and divide the surplus should there be any amongst tbe sub scribers. Tbe motion to reconsider was carried, and, on motion ot Mr. George White, it was voted to leave the matter with the committee; the understanding being in accordance with the suggestion ef Mr. Semmes, that in case the committee should find Umore advantageous to the subscribers te pay for substitutes for those dratted they were authorized to do so. On motion of Mr. Semmes, the meeting ad journed to Wednesday evening next at eight o'clock._ A Bogus Marbiaob.?Yesterday, Marshall Barnes, colored, who, it appears, has been for some time past hunting up contrabands to run them in as substitutes, picked up one John Dor? sey, an old darkey about 40 years of age, ema ciated and broken down, and took him to his boarding-house, on 13th street, between C and 1), and left him there for safe-keeping. Dorsey is evidently a simpleton, for at the justice's of fice to-day he had not the remotest idea of an oatb, and did not know what a Bible was. Su san Rollins, a sharp looking colored woman, no doubt discovered this fact yesterday, and, as Horsey says, she made overtures of mar riage to him, with the intention, as is believed, of running Dorsey in as a substitute to-day, and then pocketing bis bounty money. Tbe marriage was consummated, one Gar rett Mason, an almost white individual, who sports white pants and Test, faultless linen, various articles of jewelry, and is dressed a la fop generally, performing the ceremony, aud charging *? therefor. Tbe affair came to the knowledge of detectives McDevitt and Clar voe, and they, together with officer Simonds, of the sth precinct, arrested the parties, and took them before Justice Miller for a hearing tbis morning, wben the above facts were eli cited. Harriet Brooks, (colored,) who lives in the same bouse with Susan Rollins, testified to tbe fact of the pretended marriage, and that Ma son performed what purported to be the mar riage service, and charged Dorsey ?5 for his labor. Dorsey stated tbat when Susan Rollins pro posed marriage to bim, ne thought she was only joking, but told her be was old and un well, and wanted some one to take care of him, but still thought it was a joke until the marriage was done and the preacher was paid After tbe marriage a cake was cut and some liquor was drank, but Dorsey was subsequent ly debarred tbe joys of married life by his spouse, consequently tbe complaint. J nstice Miller held Mason in $l,(MHi and Susan in $5U!> for their appearance at court. Fourth Ward Station Casks.?Peter Tay lor, throwing stones; tduSB. Milton Slater, fighting: dismissed.

Morgan, Isaiah Moere and John Godwin. When the police entered the house business was very brisk, and quite a flutter was created; some of tbose who bad retired being aroused so suddenly that tbey dressed with difficulty. Tbe whole party were kept at tbe station h-use all night, and tbis morning Justice Fer guson fined Ann Gallagher (who proved to be tbe manager of the house) aio, and the other girls to each, and dismissed the men with a lecture. The Sergeant took possession of the keys of the bonse, and will turn them over to the Superintendent of Police, and it is proba ble that tbe alleged proprietor, Mena Berrin ger, of Hocker's Division, will be sent to court. Rumpus atColumbia Gardbh.?Last nigbt a discussion commenced among some of the visitors at Columbia Garden, on 12th street, near Ohio avenue, as to tbe merits of Lincoln and McClellan and the arguments assumed the knock down character. A soldier, name unknown, who spoke for McClellan was knocked down. A citizen went to pick him up, and he in turn was knocked down by Robt. Cross. Policeman Parker and Mills were called upon to preserve the peace. Parker Eeized Cross, and the latter drew a revolver, which tbe officer managed to secure. The vis itors of both sexes were thrown into confusion for a snort while, and an evaeuation ot the premises was about to follow, wben Cross was secured and taken to the Second Ward Station. Tbis morning when tbe case was called tor bearing by J nstice Clayton, Cross asked tbat it be set tor trial at 5 o'clock this afternoon, and gave bail for his appearance at that time, when he will be prepared with witnesses for defence. Assault ani> Battbry.?Yesterday morn ing, a crowd of persons chased a colored boy named Peter Taylor, from the Center Market, and one man catching h4m, beat him severely, for bitting a little girl with a large stone, and, as the crowd supposed, breaking her leg. Ser geant Cronin found the little girl, and to hi? surprise it was his own daughter. She was very badly hurt, but her leg was not broken. The sight of the suffering child inflamed the anger of the crowd, and to prevent a new breach of tbe peace the Sergeant had to leave his child with the crowd and hurry the pris oner before Justice Giberson, who sent him to jail for conrt. Fatal Accident.?Yesterday afternoon about 6 o'clock, a man named Thos. Graylicb, attempted to get on the cars at the Depot as they were being shifted from one track to an other, and slipped off falling on the track, and was ran over, the wheels passing over both thighs crashing them awfully. He was taken up and carried to the Sanitary Hospital, North Capitol street, where notwithstanding every attention was paid to him, he died in about three hours. The deceased was an Irishman and probably resided in Georgetown, and was about 30 years of age. _ Ikqubsts.?This morning, Coroner Wood ward held inquests over the bodies of two of the soldiers drowned in the Potomac last Mon day night, as is supposed, while attempting to desert their commands by swimming the river. The inquest was held below Edes' mills, and tbe jury returned verdicts in accordance with the facts.

A detective at tached to Major Littler's office got a boat and towed the body to the shore, and notified tbe coroner tc bold an inqnest. The body was naked, and a snit of clothes were fastened npon the shoulders. The supposition is that the deceased was one of a party who attempted to desert some days ago, some of whom were drowned.
