Another conflict and another victory for the government has to be recorded to-day. Th* divi sion of General Franklin, despatched to West Point by General McClcllan, hud a brisk content with tUe enemy and defeated them with great ?laughter on Wednesday. Our troop* effected a landing at Brick House Point, adjoining West Point, and although only numbering twenty thousand men, while the portion of the rebel army they encountered amounted to thirty thousand, our troops completely defeated them. We give to-day a full and highly graphic account of this action from our special correspondent. General Lee commanded the rebels, who were en deavoring to push on to Richmond; but the result of this fight has been to drive them back towards the Chickahominy, where General Johnston is con centrating his army. It is due to President Lincoln to state here that he sustained the proposal of General McClcllan to forward Franklin's division op the rirer to West Point, against the opinion of other members of his Cabinet; and the crcdit of this brilliant affair at West Point ia therefore just ly to be awarded to the sagacity of General Uc Clellan and the firmness of President Lincoln. A tall acount of the shelling of Sewall's Point, and the tkirmiah between the Mcrrimac aud our gunboats and iron-clad vessels, the Monitor and Naugatuck, in Hampton Roads, will be found ia another column. Beyond the evacuation of Sewall's Point and Pig Point, and the .shelling of Norfolk, this engagement ha.', up to latest ac counts, produced no very important results. The Merrimac appears to be playing a vciy cautious game; but if her intention is to g"t out of Eliza beth river, she ia likely to be defeated '>y the watchfulness of our feet. Further details of tlie capture of New Or!-aus will be found In our columns to-'ay. Tho ques tion of the supremacy of iron over woolen wa!l.?, formed ? matter of speculation wiMi some Krifi?h naval officers there, who w.tnessed the exploit of the Varuna and the Webster. -We ar* competed, from want of space, to leave tV <-. . . .. oat to-day two or three pages of news, descriptive of tbe battle of Yerktown snd other important nfikirs. together with a number of plana and map*; but, upon the whole, we think that our columns contain enough of stirring news for one day. A proclamation, announcing that the port of )f?w Orleans ia open to the commerce of all na tion* will be Issued as soon as tbe President re turns from Fortress Monroe to Washington, and that will probably b? to-day or to morrow. OOVQftZM. In the Senate yesterday, petitions la favor of a ship eml from Lake KIclgaa to the Mississippi rtm, Mil in favor ofth? pa*?ag* of * Confiscation bill. w?va preaented. The bill giving the Prseid?t additional poorer in^feraaaa to the reatriction of import and export trade intended to ?M the rebellion waa reported trim the Committee oa Ooasserea. The resolution calling on the QsarsUry of War for ths reports of the offWrs ?oauaanding at the battle of Fhiloh was taken up, when s dlacnaslon, somewhat personal in its cha racter, easaed between several Penators ss to the eOoiency and braaary of the troops from different Slates and the ability of the principal generals engaged in that, battle. Tha resolution was finally ?doffted. A bill was reported from the Nav*i Committee relative to appolutmenls in the Marine Oorpa. A r*p<v*t was received from the seleo^ oommitteo having aader consider:'ilon the proposed impeachment of Jadge Humphreys, of Tennessee' stating that they wjjl taUo proper action in tLe case, and that duo notice of tb? results of their examination wlU be given hereafter.

TLe presence in the h-11 of the H>>u?e of Captain* Kailey and Boggs, who participated iu the recent brilliant naval operations near New Orleans, was announced, und they were imme diately, by a unanimous vote, invited to aeata ou the fioor. Mr. hovejoy otfered a snibstitute for the bill acted upon the previous day, to secure free 1 dom for all persona within the exclusive jurisdic tion of the federal government. On this a long debate ensued, which was participated in by va rioua members, consuming the remainder of the day's session. No final vote .was had on the subject. Both houses adjourned till Monday. MISCELLANEOUS NEWS. We think we have succeeded in making np ? table of our loss in killed, wonnded and missing in the late great battle at I'ittsbnrg Landing, or Shiloh. It is derived partly from official sources and partly from information derived from the several division offiaera. The second division of Grant's corps is not exact, as the full reports are not yet in, but is very nearly so. The sixth divi sion of Grant's army is made up partly from con jecture of the remaining officers and partly from the few reports that have come in. This division was peculiarly unfortunate in the loss by death or capture of its general and most of his staff, and the capture of many of ita men. Ita loss in field snd line officers was very heavy. This table is as full and accurate as it can possibly b? under the circumstances, and any subsequent developments can vary it but little.

Prog re as of the War In a Commercial View?The Reopening of Onr Southern Ports. While our loyal people are rejoicing in the full belief that the glorious victories of our land and naval forces over this Southern rebel lion indicate its speedy extinction, our federal administration is not unmindful of the measures required for the restoration of the rights, the power and the blessings of the Union, as rapid ly as possible, in the wake of our advancing fleets and armies. In connection with an offioial circular of Mr. Seward to the diplomatic corps at Washington on the subject, we published on Monday last a leading editorial announcing that within a few days a proclamation would be issued by President Lincoln, reopening to foreign and domestic commerce our Southern ports of Bean fort, Newbern, Savannah, Fernandina and New Orleans. It is possible now, however, that the proclamation may be delayed a few days longer, in anticipation of embracing in it the additional Southern ports of Norfolk and Rich mond, and perhaps some others. Mr. Seward? in annonncing that a collector has already been appointed for New Orleans, says " that the necessary preparations are being made to modify the blockade so far as to permit limited shipments to and from that and one or more other porta which are now closed by blockade, at times and upon conditions which will be made known by proclamation;" and we have no doubt that those " other ports" are those which we have indicated. The great commercial Powers of Europe cannot fail to appreciate the objects of the ad ministration in this proceeding. England and France, for example, are sorely pinched for cotton in oonsequenoe of onr Southern block ade. President Lincoln avails himself of the first opportunity to make manifest to those Powers his anxiety to remove the restrictions of this blockade to the fullest extent consistent with that paramount object?the suppression of this Southern rebellion. Secondly, to the fullest extent which the necessities of this war against the rebel government of Jeff. Davis will warrant, President Lincoln is anxious to prove to the people of the So?th his desire to relieve them of their commercial privations and distresses resulting from this blockade. Thus the commercial wants of foreign natio is and of our Southern people will soon be met by some liberal commercial concessions on the part of our government?concessions which we are enabled to grant l'rcin tho recent splendid victories of our army and navy over the armed forces of this rebellion. With the leaders or this rebellion? second only to the idea of an unmixed and continually expanding pro-slavery confederation?baa been this other Southern revolutionary hallucination of an independent Southern commercial sys. t<*ni. The conviction fixed in tho public mind of South Carolina by Mr. Calhoun and his dinciplcs, thai under the tarifl's of the govern ment of the Utiion the South wad impoverished to enrich the North, brought about that fc'oufli Carolina nullification rebellion of 1832-3. Alter that day. although tho safety of the Southern institution of slavery apparently superseded* among our Southern revolutionary leaders, the issue of a commercial separation from the North, this commercial question in reality was the most powerful element employed in the or ganization of this rebellion. Thus tho people of the South, and especially of South Carolina, were taught to believe that, if released from their commercial dependence upon the North? our Northern seaports would speedily sink into decay, and Charleston, like Venice In lior glory, would soon become the choacn bride of the sea "King Cotton" wen Id bold the balance of commercial powor against the North and all the nations of the earth, and a purely pro slavery Southern confederacy would extond indefinitely the reign, the dominions and the power of "Ring Cotton." A year of this re. bellion has scattered the sapporting columns of this magnificent fabric of a Southern pro slavery confederation in ruins upon the ground. "King Cotton" has failed to meet the expecta tions of his subjects, and, under the proesare of our federal blockade, they pronounce him a failure. And so all this vast commercial sys* tetn of Southern independence, direct traffic and fr^e trade with Kurope is exploded, and the government of the United States vindicates its right and its power to maintain its political and commercial authority over tho South, cot ton and all. England and France, in the Veopening of our Southern ports, with tfcair occupation by our armed fortes, will be compelled to recognize the macmanlmous principles by which Mr. Lincoln's udministrat'on Is g.tided; ami the suffering peo ple of the South will soon disevrer that only under the protection of the -'oH lUg"' can their present privations and sufferings be ended. We await the President's comracrc'al proclamation w'.lh the fullest asmirance that !t will command the respect of foreign Powers, aud bo pro ductive of the be-t results among the Southern peeple, wIiomi groat distresses he Is thus pre nared to relieve, even In advance of a complete suppression of the sp'i :ou* despotism of Davis and in* confederates. The Great Federal Victory ot Hew Or Piogrtx *f (lit B?*oliitlw? In *???1 Warfnre. We publish this morfitnL"; full dotalls of the victory gained by our sqnadrort at New Or leans, tlian which, considering ibe obstacles eucounlrred, the novel character of *oine of the vtwsete employed by the rebels. and the magnitude and importance of the result* reach ed, no more memorable achievement stands re corded in the annals of naval w urfare. Ever since Louisiana ca?t off her allegiance to the Union the most formidable preparations l>a 1 been made to render New Orleans impregnable to tbe approach of a federal fleet. Ei ery point on the Mississippi river below the city was for tified In a manner that led tbe rebels to enter tain the fullest confidence in its defences. On Forts Jackson and St Philip were mounted one hundred and seventy rifled sixty-eight pounders broaght from England. About a quarter of a mile from the forte a chain was et retched, which it was calculated would delay the attacking fleet a couple of hoars, during which time it would ho ex posed to the fire of all their batteries, several of which were prepared to discharge red hot shot at intervals of a few seconds. From tbe forts to tbe city ran a continuous succession of I

earthworks, and at Chalmotte were redoubts armed with rifled cannon, tbe balls from which were said to be effective at a distance of five miles. In the two forte St. Philip and Jackson were picked garrisons of three thou sand men, many of whom wore skilled artille rists wbo bad served in the navy. In addition to all this the enemy had from fifteen to twenty gunboats, three iron rams and several iron plated floating batteries, and booms, torpedoes, chains, tire rafts and ships in any quantity. Such were the obstacles that Commodore Farragut bad to encounter before he could hope to make bis way up to the city. Nothing daunted, be commcnced the bombardment of Fort Jaoksou on the 18tb, and kept up a most destructive fire, without intermission, until tbe principal vessels of tbe squadron were pre pared to pass tbe- fe*ter which tbey did on the morning of the 24th. On their way up tbey riddled' and disabled the famons ram, tho Ma nassas, which, floating down tbe river, was again fired into and sunk by the flotilla under Captain Porter. Then iol lowed the destruction of thirteen gunboats and three transports be longing to the rebe!?, together with the lns?s of hundreds of lives on their side. On the 25tb, at noon, two more batteries were sileuced, and in another hour the squadron lay quietly at anchor near the city. Next day, tbe 2(itb. a couple of heavy field works, located about nine miles above New Orleans, wore taken posses sion of by the federals, the enemy burning the new ram, tbe Mississippi, mounting twenty guns, to pro*out bee falling into our bands. Tho Anglo-Norman, another ram, was also destroyed, though whether by tbe rebels or by the iire of onr vessels is not stated. Tbe floating battery which lay at Algiers, op posite New Orleans* was suu& on the same day. General Butler landed his troop* above Fort Sfc Philip on the 27tb, and on the day fol lowing both forte surrendered. The floating battery Louisiana was blown up previous to the capitulation. In the afternoon Forts Liv ingston and Piko were abandoned, and thus was completed the capture of every point of defence - commanding the approaches to tbe city. Of the rest our readers mre already in formed. A more daring and brilliant hemes of opera tions than are thus briefly sketched are not to be found, on record. Considering, as we have already observed, that new and formidable element+of defenoe were employed against us. of which our officers had only a theoretical knowledge, the boldness and da ?!? displayed by them am beyond all praise. Tho performances of the-Merrimao, with hor iron prow, on the first day of bor sortie in Hampton Hoads, led them to cx^ect serious disasters in tbsir encounter I with tbe floating ranis and irou-plated batteries ? of tbe enemy?a number of which were kaowu to be prepared to receive them, iustead of meeting with injury from them* some of onr wooden vessels succeeded in destroying t.'ieir monsters?a fact which proves, not that our pre vious conclusion* in regard to tbo superiority of iioa-clad ve-vels ar~ erroneous. but that Southern mechanical skill is unequal to the task of properly constructing them. Tbi* victory at Now Orleans, all important and docisive as it is, derivos additional value from tbe evidence that it presents us of tbe real streugth and power of oua navy, if our gunboata aud mortar ves<?el3 can thus silence forte aud batter down defence* that were deemed impregnable by tbe hi^hcat engineer authorities, what have wo to fear in the future lrotn tbe hostility of tbe maritime governments of EurapeT Not only are we in a position to bid defiance to them on our own coasts, but to carry the war into thoir colonial dcpendeucios if necessary. Tbe Amcricau rebellion has been fruitful in lessons and disooverics to the European Powers. England and Spain have wisely taken heodof the in.
