Events of great mngnitude crowd upon us with aueb wonderful rapidity, that we are prone to quickly forget those of most momcn tooafrconsequence. The capture of Island Ko* Ten which for twenty-three days with stood?* siege by our gun boats under Com modore Foote, and by our land forces under Goo. Pope, thus showing the immense strength of the works and the sagacity and wisdom with which the position was se lected, is, to our minds, one of the most im portant events of the war. It is important {n more respects than one. By its capture the way is opened for the free navigation of Mississippi, for the rebels have no place which approaches anywhere near the strength of it.
