Arrivals at Fortress Monroe?From the Captured torts?Tkt Prizes and their Cargoes?Safety of the Harriet Lane?A Secession Canard Exploded ?A Confederate Floating Battery makes its Appearance. [Special correspondence of The Star J Fortress Moneox, Va., Sept 1,1861-4 p. m. The George Peabody, Lieut. Lowry, U.S. N., commanding, has just arrived here from Hatteras Inlet, bringing In tow the New York brig Henry ,C. Brooks, losded by Andrew Reed, of Newbern > N. C., with a cargo of turpentine, cotton, and tobacco. 9he was one of tbe prizes captured In the glorious joint naval and army affair there of Wednesday and Thursday last. Her cargo was worth *00,000 In Newbern, and *80,(too In Liverpool, whither she was about sailing as our expedition appeared off the inlet. The George Peabody brings the gratifying intelligence of the safety of the Harriet Lane. At 11 a. m. on Saturday last orders were given to abandon her, It being supposed impossible to get her off tbe shoal on which she had beached late In the action But at 3 p. m ., just as tbe Peabody was about sailing, she floated clear. Her flag was Instantly run up, and her crew gave three hearty cheers, which were as heartily responded toby the crews of the Pawnee and Monticello and the nine hundred troops in the fort. The Pawnee and Monticello lie Inside In a position soas surely to command with their fcuns all approaches to the forts by the sound. The troops in the fort are well supplied with provisions, munitions, Ac., and were bard at work mounting guns to command the land side, and making themselves comfortable. The story of the Richmond Dispatch, that the forts surrendered through want of ammunition, 1s false. Ameng the articles that then and there fell into our hands were full 300 barrels of powder, and shot and ?hell sutflrient, if tired, to use up that quantity of powder. In fact, I doubt whether the Confeds have a fort better supplied with ammunition than Forts Hatteras and Clark were. An hour ago, a large steamer of the Confeds hove in slirht of this point?Fortress Monroe? heavily arnted, and towing down a floating battery. They are now about Sewall's Point. We are all ready for them here, and promise to make short work with them, If venturing further out in this direction. a rkbel genzf.il officer killed os saturday afternoon on the other s1dk of the river. [Special correspondence of the Star.] Fort Corcoran. Va , Sept. 2 ?At about five p. m. on Saturday last, while two companies of our troops?one a Massachusetts company and th^ other a Pennsylvania company?were scouting in tbedtrectlon of Bailey's Cross Roads, they came within sight of a battalion of the euemy of about the same number, accompanied by a very distinguished-looking mounted offlcer. One of our men, armed with a Springfield rifle, asked and obtained leave to flre at him, though the distance was thought to be too great for an effective shot Contrary to tbe general expectation, be tumbled hiin off bis horse at the first shot. Both bodies of troops then retired, the enemy bearing their fallen officer away In tbelr arms. In an hour afterwards their flags on Munson's hill and at Falls Church were at half mast, and temalned at half mist all day yesterday. It Is therefore judged in our cam pa that the offlcer killed was one of the enemy's generals?which, we know not. aCK NOW AT MANASSAS?THAT AT FAIRFAX coort-hocse?at sanqster's ckoms roads EEMTER's ALEXANDRIA AXTILLERT AT MUNSON's hill.

I Informed them that, I ae the expedition was a combined one from the I army and navy, the surrender must be msde on I board the flag ship to Flag Officer Strlngham, as I well as to myself. We went on board the MlnI nesota for that purpose. On arriving there the I following articles of capitulation were signed, | which 1 hope will meet your approval.

By I these accidents, a valuable sblp of wsr snd a i transport steamer, with a Isrge portion of mv troops, were within the power of the enemy. 1 I bid demanded tbe strongest terms, which he was I considering. He might refuse, and, seeing our disadvantage, renew the action But I determined to abate not a tittle of what I believed to be dae to tbe dignity of the Government; not even to I give an official title to the officer la command of I the rebels Besides, my tug was In the Inlet, and I at least I could carry on the engagement with my two rifled slx-pouuders, well supplied with Sawyer?s shell v I Upon taking possession of Fort Hatteras I found I tbat It mounted ten guns, with four yet unmounted I and one lsrge ten-Inch columblsd, all ready for I mounting.
