While we liave been looking for tlie great battle wbich was to be turning point ot' the rebellion to occur in the vicinity of the l'oto inac, we have been startled with the thrilling announcement that the greatest battle ever fought upon the American continent has been fought upon the banks of the Tennessee river; and while every true patriot must rejoice at the the triumph of the Government over the rebel forces uuder Beauregard and Johnson, the heart sickens at the contemplation of the terrible sacrifice of life with which it has been purchased. We had hoped that the rebel leaders would have realized the entire hopelessness of their cause after their defeat at Douelsou, and have indicated a disposition to lay down their arms and return to their loyalty; but it appears they are bent upon their own distinction, and that of their misguided followers, who have been induced by misrepresentation and fraud to make war upon the Government of their own choice and under which they had lived in peace and prosperity. It cannot be that they will persist in their mad and insane purpose of breaking up the Government. TLey must now realize how ntterly impossible it is for them to resist its power and authority successfully, and the masses of the people must realize that they havo been betrayed by artful, designing dema gogues into a wicked rebellion against their Government for the purpose of concentrating power in the hands of a slaveholding aristoc racy, to be used for their own selfish purposes, And their degradation. We think the time for a reaction of the public sentiment of the South has arrived, and when it shall be furnished an opportunity forgiving free expression to it, the feeling will spread like lire on the prairie, until it shall overcome all opjMieitiou to the Constitution and laws. It is to this reaction we look for a restoration of that peace and harmony which has heretofore characterized lis M • great and pros|ierous nation, and we have a strong and abiding faith that it will he real ised. There are unmistakable indication* in the rebel States of a dis|>osition on the |uirt of the masses of the people to return to their loyalty, aud with the advance of our conquer tngand victorious army this suppressed sen timent of love for the old Stars and Stripes, aud for the Government f»tabli*b<-d by our fathers, has developed itself among tb<- pvat body of the people, and they most ebeerfullv submit to the provisional governments formal for their protection. This is most fully demon strated by the fact that our advanciug army have ao enemies in the rear. While we mount the loss of the hundreds of brave spirits that so gallantly rctiotnl the fnrions **d maddened charges of the rebel hosts of doable their number, (era whole day. we rejoice to know that they so nobly did their duty in offering upon the altarof their couutrv their livesss awilliMgsacrifice fortbepreserva tiou of all that is valuable in government ur in stitutions, and that they will be bail«d as martyrs to the cause of human liberty bv eve ry patriot throughout the civiliz,d world, and their memory will flourii.h gn-eu iu the hearts of the present, and coming generations.

Nearly every number of the Stutrxnmn has accounts of affrays aud murders. We notice in the last iniii.lcr of that paper a letter dated at Florence, on the Ist iust., giv ing the loss of four men, supposed to be mur dered for their money. In the same i.-sue we observe a detailed account of n row at the Walla Walla Theatre, which resulted iu the death of one man,a soldier, and the wounding of three others, including the sheriff and his deputy, who were endeavoring to urrcst the offenders. The SUttrxman has an artiele on the demoralizing effect of these frequent oc currences, and counsels that offenders be made to suffer extreme penalties to subvert the same.

TUB SHIIKTMIBX. —We not ice almost every day a number of our amateur sportsmen, with lilies, shot-guns, muskets, and other murder ous looking weapons, sallying out with deadly intent on the many grouse w liich every morn ing till the woods with their singular hooting. For their particular reading we give the fol lowing extract from the Natural History of Washington Territory and < Iregon, by Dr. < Jeo. Suckley : "Concerning the whereabouts of this bird during the winter months there rre many opinions among tin: settlers. Some maintain that the spccius is migratory, and that they retire to the south, while others say that they repair to the tops of the highest evergreen trees, where, iu the thickest foliage of the branches, they pass the cold season in a state of semi-torpor, rarely or never descending un til warm weather comes ou. As the subsist well on the leaves of the conilerae, and can always obtain suHicient water from the snow aud rain drops on the leaves to supply their necessities, 1 have but little doubt that this latter is the correct account, or that, if migra tory, but partially so. 1 saw one bird of this species ou the ground, during a fall of snow, in January, IN/il, near the Nisqually river, Washington Territory ; and 1 have been told that a man, near Olvmpia. Washington Terri tory, whose eye-sight is excellent, is able any day during winter to obtain several birds by searching carctullv for them iu the tree tops of the tallest anil most thickly leaved firs. This requires eye-sight of much greater (low er than most men possess. F.ven iu summer, when these birds are generally lower iu the trees, it is very ditlicult to liud them among the dense branches. They have, iu addition to their sombre hues, the advantage of habit, of crowding very closely to the limbs, and of sitting almost immovable for hours." We should like very much to be informed who the "Sharp-shooter" is, refered to above. We hoi ■e that no unnatural modesty will prc ' vent liim from making himself kuown.

Met 'lellan ami found to lie very strong ami the approach es difficult. The enemy wan in force, ami the batteries at Vorktown ami (tloueestcr were much increased in number ami force. There was sharp firing on the right, hut no damage was done. It seemed plain that mortar and siege guns must lie used for (lie attack. Another dispatch received at lU:.'JO this morning, states that Yorktowu must fall with out a siege, within two davs. Some outer works have heen taken. (Sell. Wool teleg raphs that Magruiler had .'iU.OUU men at York town. On the afternoon of Sunday, Ship I'oint had been taken, the gunlioats shelling out the batteries. All the fortified places of importance below Yorktowu had herti taken. The following account is from the official dispatches to the Secretary of War: That portion of the army of the l'otomac recently concentrated at < lid Point advanced on Friday morning, in the direction of York town. The right was assigned to Morrill's llrigade, of Porter's Division, with two com panies ot the oil Pennsylvania Cavalry, ant ing as skirmishers. Nothing of interest oc urred, in.til the arrival at Hig Hethel. whero the outer rebel pickets were met. The troops delayed here lor two hours, reconstructing a bridge which had been destroyed. The reb els retreated before our skirmishers to How ard Creek, where they had some earthworks. Shots were here find bv the rebels from two field pieces, which were soon silenced by the 4th Khode Island Mattery. Then tbe rebels retreated, taking the artillery with them. The uriiu body of the nrmv rested here for the night, while Morrill's Brigade ad vaiicil to Cuckolsville, six miles from York town. lly seven o'clock Saturday morning, the column was again in motion. At ten o'clock they were iu front of the enemy's works at Yorktowu. The first shot was tired bv the rebels, (Sriftin's, mid the 3d and 4th liliode Island and the/ith Massachusetts ltat teries were placed iu position, replying to the same point from which tbeshots were fired bv the rebels. The cannonading continued with but slight intermission until dark. Aliout four hundred shots were fired by hoth parties during the day. The loss on our side during the day was .'i killed and five wounded. The position of the rebels is n strong one from present appearances. Their fortifications ex tend two miles ill length and mount heavy guns. The grouud iu front of their works is low and marshy. Arrangements are made to build, immedi ately, iron clad vessels ot the character but larger than the Monitor. KKIIF.I.

From nine o'clock Sunday until ni*rlit. tln-re wan no possibility of deter mining what the result would be. The rebels exhibited remarkable generalship. At times J eugaging our left with apparently their whole force I hey would suddenly open a terrible de structive fire on the centre aud right. The most desperate fighting took place in the af ternoon. The rebels seemed impressed with the iib-a that if they did not succeed in whip ping us then, their chances for success would lie extremely doubtful. Up to this time the reinforcements which had been oidered for ward bad not arrived. (Jen. I.ew Wallace's Division having taken the wrong road from (.'amps I.auding did not come up until night fall. When it arrived it had no means of crossing the river except transports used for the Quartermaster's and Commissary stores, which were too heavy laden to carry any con siderable number. We were therefore con testing the fight against fearful odds, our force not exceeding 38,000, while that «f the enemy was upwards of 50,000. (>ur aoiidi tion was critical. 1 jirge numbers of our men were panic struck and others worn out by hard fighting, (ten. Grant and Staff were rccklesslv ridingalongthe lincsdiiringthe entire day, auiul the unceasing storm of bullets, grape aud shell, aud inciting the mcu to atand firm until reinforcements could cross the river. In the evening, Col. Webster, Chief of the Staff, got into position with the hea\iest pie ces of artillery pointing on the enemy's right, while n large number of batteries were planted along the entire line from the river bank on the northwest to the extreme right, two aud a half miles distant. About an hour before dusk the (ienernl Commanding opened on the enemy from along our whole line with cannon, with a perpetual crack of musketry. For a short time the rebels replied vigorously and effectively, hv.t their return shots became less frequent and less destructive, while ours grew more rapid and more terrihle. The guulmat* LcjriitfsfoH and Tyler, which lay n short distance off, ke|it up u rain of shell on the rebel liordes. '1 he last effort was too much for the enemy, aud before dusk the fir ing nearly ceased; all the combatants rested from the work of blood and carnage. Our men rested on their arms on the field in posi tion they held at nightfall, until Geu. Wallace arrived with his division and took positiou on the right; Nelson's division of Iluell's army, having arrived, was ordered to form on the left; Crittenden's divisiou, also of Buell's army, was orderi'd to his support. On Mon day morning the battle commenced at day break, simultaneously by Nelson's division ou the left, aud Wallace's division on the right; Nelson's forces opened the most galling fire ! on the rebels and advanced rapidly as they fell back. The fire soon became general alou" the whole line; and began to tell with terrible effect on the eneuiT. (ieus. McCler imuml, Sherman and Iluriiait's divisions, all terribly jaded froui the previous day's fight ing. still maintained tbe honor* they woo at Fort 1 lonelaon. TW resistance of IIM* rebels at all points was gallant and worthy of a bet ter eaaae—not enough, however, for tke un daunted courage of our truops, aad dreadful deaolatiou was produced by our artillery, a hick was sweeping then off like cka'f. Knowing defeat now to be the death blow af their hopes, tke rebel Generals still urged their forrea to cerlaia destruction, hoping by flanking our rigkt to turn the tide of buttle.
