Tuesday. Aug. 30. 1864

A large number of horses belonging to Government have been pastured on the Island near here for a month past.  Today some men came and took them away.  They swam them across, to the Ohio side, the current was strong, the river having risen several feet and four of the horses were drowned.
We have the news of the taking of Fort Morgan in Mobile harbor, by Farraguts fleet.  Said to be a brilliant achievement.
