In explanation in part of the tmission time stated, and as part of the h:$t ry of the s i. render of l'ort la nelson, 1 have obtained from a ri nlor officer, who was present on that occasion, the fob low lug reliable statement of the particulars of the surrender. which will be read with interest:? On the morning of the 1C b of February, about one o'clock, it had been determined by tho commanding officer to cut our way through the enemy's lines, destroy the army stores and retreat from Dover to Nashville For this purpose scouts were seut out to ascertain whether thocae my occupied the ground they had been driven from the day previous, and soma of Forrest's men wore ordered to inspect a slough covered with back water from the river, tu see if it waa passable for infantry. The scouts returned soon after, and report that the roa is were perfectly alive with troupe, and that their cainp dreg were burning In every direction; aise, that theslougii was half leg deep in mi.#, and the wu,.ar reaching to the s .ddle skirts. This iulorinitiou produced a change of operations, and a conieri nee then lock place, at whicu were prereut General* Floyd, Pillow and Inic-nor, Colonels Forrest and John C. Hurch; Majors Cllnior, Iluury, Haynes and Jones, aud Lioutenai.ls Mart,a and Nicholson?the two last being aids of Uuueral Pillow. Notwitlo,tac.:ina thai communication was thus cnt off. General billow urged ilionecessity of making the attempt to cut our way out, or tnaku it fight lor ono day ni >re, in which tune he thought that we could get steamboats enough to put the whole command across the river, and ii utke our escape by C'larksviUe. General Buckuer thea earl, that from the worn out and distres od condition of his men, and the occupation of his riflo pits on the extreme right by the enemy, he could not ho d his position for half an hour, if attacked by the eoetny at daylight, which be would car talnly do. Geueral Pillow replied-?"Why can't you? I thiuk you can sir," and added that the occu)iation of our ride pits by the enemy left an open gateway to our river battery,and he thought we ought to out our way through at all hazards. General Bucknor retorted, saying ?"I know my position; 1 can only briug to bear agaiust the enemy four thousand men, while he can oppose me with any given number." Geueral Pillow then said:?"Well, gentlemen, what do you intond to d>r 1 aui in favor of fighting out." General Floyd then asked General Bicknar what he had to say? General Buckner replied quickly that to attempt to cut our way through the enemy's lines would cost a sacr floe of three fourths of the command, and that no geuoral had the right to make such a sacrifice of human life. Geueral Floyd admitted the fact, and concurred with General Bucknor on this point. General Pillow tnen remarked that there was but oao alternative left, and that was capitulation, and addressing himself to Geueral Floyd, said?"Sir, I shall neither surrender the command nor myself; 1 will die tirst." General Floyd then said he also would not surrender himself, adding:?" Vou know my relations with the I'nitid States government, and it would not do." [Alluding to his course when Secretary of War, in dig iribufiiig to the South its quota of arms.] General Bucknor repli :d tnat he thought no pers mal feeling ought to controloflicialaction. General Floyd admitted it, and raid nevertheless it was his determination Geueral' Bucknor raid:?."Then, gentlemen, 1 suppose the Barren dor will devolve on ins." Geueral Fioyd, addrcssiug Burg, or, said:?"Geueral, if you are put in command will you allow me to take out my brigador" General Buckner replied ?"Yes, sir, if you move your command betore 1 send my offer of capitillation to the enemy." "Then," said Geueral Floyd,"Isurrender the command.1' General Pillow, upon whom tho command next devolved. said,"I will not accept it, as my purpose is fixed never to sui render." Geuor tl Buckner immediately replied, "I will accept it. and will share the fato of my command," aud at once culled for pen, ink and paper, aud a bugier to sound a parley, it boing too dark to tend a flag of truce. Geueral Pillow iheu (irked if it would be proper for him to make his escape; to which General Floyd replied that wus a question for every man lo decide for himuelf, but that lie would be glad for every in in to make his escape that could. Colonel Forrest, addressing General Buckner, said, "I think, General, there is more fight in our men than you sapiioflo; but if you will let me, I will also take out my command." To which Buckner and Floyd bom Rs-ented. Turning to General Pillow, Forrest then said, "General, 1 have fought under your command, what sum: 1 no . uuuerai riiiun anaa *i ou, uii /uur wmj out." To which Forrest ropliad,'!I will." All the officers retired, leaving (To u oral Rucknor alone with the command.
