New l'oi-k, SHlmiiajr, April 16. 1*6*. THE ilTUATIOJi. Ihe tiews from Fort Pillow is of a disastrous cliarar ter, fully true, repre-scuts the humanity of the rebel guerillas at a very low standard. The flag? of I race wbi( h wiro twice rant to tbo fort by Gen. Forrest, d?mandmg a surrender, were re:used to be acceded to by Major Booth, when a vigorous attack was made by tbe rebel*, which resulted iu the compulsory surrender or the Tort ?t three o'clock on Tuesday- Major Bo^th was tilled, together with several other officers. But the moft lamentable part of the atery remains to be told, and, if It be not exaggerated, U a terrible record against the roving gangs or br&vos who tnrest tbe whole Southwest, and cenaitt alnost limitless depredations opon tbe I Dion pen lc and the troops or the Union wber ever they dnd them at their mercy. Upon taking pos session of the fort, wbieh had only a garrison or six hun **?4, tho fnerll'ss crmmeijced an Indiscriminate botcherj, not only of the soldier*?black and white? but of tbe woman and children, kliling in all some rour hundred persons, mutilating toe deaU, cruelly hsyonwing tbe woouded on the field, aad shooting some of then In tbe hosp'ts'R. This story may be, and we trust it is, exaggerated. l'he negroes became utterly de rooraiired arid flerf to the rear. Six gun* were captured by the rebels aad carriod off, including two ten-pouader Fairotta and two twetve-pounder Howitzers. A large amount of stores wag destroyed or csrrled away. H wa? m?>oeed that the attention or ihe rabelt; ws* to evacuate the place and move on or towards Memphis. The rebels ar? also rcj ortel to have again attacked Pa duoab There is no doubt that ttm force is commanded by Genera; Burord, who, on the 13th instant, demanded the surrender or Fort HaUeot. Columbus, and who is ?aid tu nave left tUat vicinity when his demand was rafused. There la, probably, a deeper lotent in these movements than may at present appear.

Ttiit i* ?'l Oraeral (Irani (ad tk* War Dtpart* rntDi??igntactai Kaaari from Wa?i? From the day of tbo promotion of jSoneral Grant to the aotive command of all the armies of the United States we have been apprehen sive that his greatest embarrassments Id work ing oat his plans and combinations would be found in Washington. From certain rumors afloat it appears that these apprehensions were well founded; but from the facts communi cated to us upon the subjeot, by a care)ul cor respondent, wo are happy to say that President Lincoln refuses to Interfere, and that Geueral Grant, therefore, remains, and is likely to re main, the master, even at Washington, of tie military situation. For some days past there bad been myste rious whisperings in that quarter of a difficulty between the General and the War Office about some question of red tape; and the little breeze of excitement thus created tho Tribune yester day undertook to sot at rest by the following statement, to wit:?That "there is the best authority for denying the truth of a rumor c nr ront here (in Washington) that General Giant btr had trouble with Secretary Suntou respect ing the movements of troops, and that the Pre sident had sustained General Giant. It is averred, however, that General Halleck had been remiss in carrying out General Grant's instructions.'' Quite likely ; for his official correspondence shows that in any movement conflicting with hfs peculiar notions lie is very apt to be remiss or exceedingly obstinate. But still we prefer the statement of our own correspondent upon this matter, which is sub stantially this:?That Mr. Stanton had com plained to General Grant that in ordering the transfer to the front of various detachments of veteran troops garrisoning certain foils, and the substitution in those forts of now recruits or men from (he Invalid corps, the General had assumod authority which belonged only to the Secretary of War. General Grant con tended that his action in the premises was clearly within his authority as General-in Chief, and moreover that, having issued the order in question, it could not well be changed. The Secretary appealed to the President, and he, washing his bands of any further responsi bility as a military leader, wisely dccided that, as General Grant had been called by Congress to take the command of all the armies of the Union, it would be best to let him have his own way. Such, we presume, was "the difficulty and the settlement. We thiuk it altogether probable that General Halleck may have supported the technicality of his brother lawyer, Stanton; and so we leave tbe?e two Marplots and marti nets to divide the honors of this affair between them. Its redeeming feature !s the decision of the President. He rightly construes the action of the two bouses in refcrenoe to General Grant. The responsible representative* of the people expect him to be allowed to man age our armies in the bnsinen of this impend I ing campaign with full authority, and with j out restraints or embarrassments from the War j Office, or lrom the President himself. Mr. Lin ooln, we are glad to believe, has Absolved to to recognize tho wishes of Congress, and that Geueral Grant ahull be supreme and untram melled in liis control over the Union forces, whether in garrison or in the Held. This i> a point of the rtrst importance gained in behalf of General Grant. We are thus as sured that he will not be McClellani/.ed by remonstrances, crippling orders or any inter fi-reiices from ihe War Office. In this verv matter, too, of transferring to tim front the vote ran troops doing garri?on duty, and In supply i ing their places from the new levie* 01 the in valid corps, (he intelligent reader will cor dially recognise the wisdom of Giant, and the stupidity of ihe War Office in attempting to in terfere with him. With all the teachings of the numerous disaster* and failure* resulting from this great mistake of retaining large bodies of veteran troops to bold useless or unimportant places when they aie wanted in "the front," the blunderers of the War Department still ad here to their folly. We congratulate the conn i try, therefore, that General Grant's war pollcv i* sustained by the President, and that theirs i* rejected. For the last two or tbr<?e years we have from time to time urged upon the administration the policy of calling out for six mouths, or lor three, forty or fifty thousand of the militia of the loyal States. to garrison the forts around Washington. Baltimore and otbfr places, in order to strengthen the Army of the Potomac by the addition of the forty or fifty thousand tetcran troops that would be thus relieved. General (irant, a? tar as possible, without call ing ort the militls, is now pursuing this very course, liis object is to erush the main armies of Jefl'. Davis, and. first of all, the rebel array of Virginia, which is (be lifeoand soul of the rebellion. He is right , and the President is right, in yielding again, a* at Vkksburg, to General Grant's superioi military sagacity. I*t General Hslleck obey orders; let the Secretary of War ke^p quiet and cheerfully .supply the ways and mesne let Congress, hav ing disposed or Mr. Long and Mr. Harris, do what it ean to strengthen our armies and the Treasury, and let Prefcident Lincola continue to treat in General Grant, and as sure as the re turn or summer will be the ffujipression of the rebellion before the summer is ended. t Tiif; Massacrk at Fort riu.ow.?Our news from lort Pillow is a confirmation of the worst that was feared of the rebel operations thore. Forrest seems to have carried the position by storm with an overwhelming force on Tuesday last, and then to have fiendishly massacred far the larger part or the garrison, both whit* troops and black. We venture to hope that this news may prove to he exaggerated, as such news so oft?n is. It is difficult to beliove that the circumstances of the barbarous transaction lime not received an sdditional color from the excited imaginations of those who escaped to tell the story. But it is bad eno ugh, at the very least. Thus the war, as far as tbe South can affect it, has taken one moro step jn its degeneration towards mere barbarity. Such transactions y this at Fort Pillow stain tbe annals of war only as it is waged by men the lowest in the scale of fit ilization, and in whom there are noue of tho better qualities of the human race to temper tbe fierceness of mere brutal rage. The Chinese and tbe Sepoys have become the thosen models of Southern men. uoil affairs as Ibis sontd not occur without tbe most culpable negligence On the part of tbo government Why is a place oconpted at all If It la not occupied by men enough to hold it f Tho foroo In this fort was too small to bold it, and too large to be lost in the attempt, and the s une In prolyl - 9f ,.r9r. pf>,n,},a In For rest's W*7 IMPORTANT FROM AlBAH*.
