WASHINGTON. D. C . SATURDAY. NOVEMBER 16. 1861. N9. 2.728. ???? INCIDENTS or TH1 SOUTH CAROLINA INVASION. According to th? correspondent of tho New York Times, oar land force* would hare made rather a poor figure toward* the suooess of the expedition, bat for the aid of oar jeok tar*. He aaja: " The reconnoisanoe had demonstrated?to none more clearly than to General Sherman? that the military portion of the expedition, with the meana at it* command, was utterly powerless to effect a landing in the face of such preparations as the enemy had exhibited. We had foand two heavy batteries?not mere intreacbments, bat permanent works, indicating considerable engineering skill?planted apon the very points at which alone it was practicable to disembark. Adding to oar discomfiture was the fact of the disintegration of the fleet by the storm, and the non-appearance of several vessels, upon the safety of whioh in great measure seemed to depend the success of the expedition. Among these were the steamer Ertoseon, baring Hamilton's light battery on beard, and the Mrk Ocean Express, containing all the ordnance,without which no position ashore would be tenable. That the ordnance should hare been all shipped by one vessel wss a piece of short-sightedness on the part of CapL McNutt, USA, chief of the ordnance corps, who has since been relieved from duty. " Our ferry boats, without which the means of speedily disembarking the troops were inadequate, and the Belvidere, Osceola and Uni?n transports, with commissary stores and deck loads of beeves and horses were also missii>g and anxiety respecting the fate of these vessels wss not diminished by the full knowledge of the loss of the Governor and Peerless. Here, toe, was a frittering away of the finest weather for landing which ever oould be hoped for, and there were the rebels in fall sigh? improving our delay by strengthening their means of defence. All the military baoala ar?r? rfnnnnrf. ing. and after a consultation of the Generals on board the Wabash, it *u determined to gracefully yield the guidanoe of affairs to the nayy. Geo Sherman told Commodore Dapont?and Gens. Wright, Stevens and Viele ooncurred in the statement-?that the soldiers could not land nnless the sailors first silenoed the rebel batteries. Bine-jackets have a repstation for being equal to emergencies, and in this instance there was no shrinking from the reeponsibility." TUB LASDI50 The same writer says of the landing : The limited means for landing made the operation one of the slowest and most tedious I have ever witnessed. The surf and flat-boats Irst went alongvide the steamers containing Wright's brigade, and one regiment was pat on snore before any attempt to move another was made. I mast be permitted to remark, without intending to be offensive, that soldiers on shipboard are awkward enough, bat pack them cloeely in a small boat, and they seem to k>ee all oontrol over their limbs, so that nothing whatever can be done with them. This characteristic intractability was not lacking on this oocasion, and it seemed that each particular nan took ten minutes to get himself on board after the order to enter the boat was given, j Adding to the delay was the faot that the beach shelved so gradually that none of the loaded boats could approach it within fifty yards or more; and the soldiers, therefore, had to direst themselves of ?hees and stockings and flounder through water up to their kneee. Leaving these unfortunate creatures with my mind filled with misgivings as to the oonseqaences should the rebels rally to attack them m their unprepared condition, I sauntered into the fort and examined it. Meanwhile, as the troops landed, they scattered themselves about the encampment, apparently under no oontrol of their officers, but with the one idea of plundering the property which the rebels had left. This conduct was utterly inexcusable, u the victory bad been won without their slightest aid; bat, for a while, nothing bat pillaging went on. The soldiers were eclipsed, however, in their disgraceful deeds bj the crews and some of the officers of the transports. THE CONTRABANDS. The correspondent of the New York Post says: The negroes ran to greet oar boats as we landed to take possession of the Fort, and among those found on the shore by our marines, were several belonging to Gen. Drayton, eommander of the post, Whose planfttion on Hilton Uesd Island was well stocked with fellows of the genuine ebony cast. Two of them were taken on board ihe Wabash, and gave much interesting and reliable information in regard to ths situation of the affairs on the island. Ose of them asserted that his master had that morning assured bim that he might fall into other hands before night, and be seemed to have been sufficiently pleased with the prospect of a change of master* to get his handle ready to be taken off. As oar troops wsre at first too basy making gsod their position to attsnd to anything else, snd the quartermasters had already more upon their bands than they coald well attend to, tbe negroes who appeared were notencour*g?d to remain, bat were st once sent baok, and on one pretense and another to take care of them wives. Bat by ths morning of the second day iftv were already githered st hesdquarters, snd signs of s moon greater influx were abundant Those who remained were pat aader charge at Capt. Goodrich, the quartermaster of Gen. Wriirht'a brigade, who m> that th*ir ??nt? vera well attended to, giving op an old building to their accommodation. Oar troops were accompanied in their firtt reconooimanoe into the ialand by Dr. J. J. Craven, the efficient surgeon of the third brigade, who report* the negroes on the plantation* farther inland a* ali&oet wild with delight at tb? advent of oar troop* and the haatj fl ifftu of their master*, which they deeeribed with the utmost gusto. The poor, trusting oreature* never seemed to queeiien that a war which they had beard wi* all about them mutt mean their deliverance from a bondage with which they do not earn to have been sufficiently in leve to follow the fortune* ef their fleeing masters There seems to bo abundant work for them to do in picking ootton on Hilton Bead Ialaad, whiek our troop* kave oooupied, and it i* to be hoped that their lerrioee will be in aome waj turned to aoount for this purpoce. A ire*of it, already white for the harreat, were feuod within leas than a mile of Fori Walker, and will be loet unlet* speedily atlisiri to. Several buildings filled with unginned ootton were also found further baok toward Skall Creek, and on the ialand* beyond that a cream similar deposit* eould ho seen. A heavy amoks which was seen at a distance the necroee re ported 10 ?) ? irom a lot 01 ooiion anion dm be?a irtd by the retreating rebels.

Tit bane eaya The Wsbaah fired r*i WTT w ?T . i daring the entire action, 900 shots, being ail 8, 9, 10 and 11-inch shells, with the exception of a few rifled cannon projectiles of a new pattern, and whioh were used simply as a matter of experiment. The Stuqaehanna fired 500 shots, the Bienville 185. and the average of the gunboats and the other smaller ships may probably be set down at 150 each. There were, in all, 16 vessels engaged on oar side, and probably from all of them were fired not far from 3,500 shot and shell at the two forts, Walker and Beauregard, the four-gun battery, and the three steamers. The average eost of each shot, reckoning shell, roand shot and rifled cannon projectiles of pecaliar make, and taking into account the value of the pewder ased to fire them, may be set down at about $8. Thus the burned powder and the broken shell iron of the battle of Port Royal may be set down as having cost the country not less than $28,000. Reckoning, then, a few items of this battle, beginning with the immense cost of this fleet, which has been preparing since August last, the pay of the soldiers, the value of their food, and the expense of the two lost vessels on a very moderate scale, it will be seen that battles are an expensive amusement, even for a '-great country." ONE CANDID FELLOW AMONG THE COJIFE t RATES [From the Nashville Patriot] My old friend Q. Washington Bricks, a fellow of infinite jest and most excellent fancy, mikes humorous mention of facts under which none but Mark Tapleys could come out so { strong. " things has r1z." Bachelor s Retreat, Oot. 21, 1861. To the Eiitors ot the Daily Patriot?Gentlemen : You are aware that with the Presidential contest of 18A1 my political hopes and aspiratious expired, and that I immediately retired to my babine farm on the Frogtown turnpike, some fifteen miles from the city, where I proposed to spend the remainder of my days in cultivating my few acres, and in endeavoring to marry some young lady of rich but respectable parents. Since that time I have visited the oity but twice?once last spring to get some Shaker seeds and fish hooks, and once last week to sell a few bushels of wheat and lay in my winter supplies. My wheat, the quantity of which was small, brought me, at John J. McCann's new mill, just *23.25; and as this was all the money I could command, or was likely soon to command. I had no other means or paying for the cart load of things I felt myself compelled to have to reader me comfortable for the winter : coffee, soap, sugar, hat, candles, boots, Ac. How many of these articles of prime necessity I bought for the money, you can easily determine by the simplest process of arithmetical calculation. Suffice it to say, I expended all but ten dollars of the amount, and bad get neither hat nor shoes, and deuced little of anything else?in short, not enough to fill one of my saddle bags. I went into a shop where they had a quantity of good-looking boots on exhibition in the show-window, intending to buy me a pair, and fully prepared by the experience of the day, to kitv Waal our exceueoi oia mend Squire Maxey, of Market street, would call a tnundoring prioe Tor them. I sat down on a obair with the bottom knocked out, and elevating my foot in front of the manufacturer, who was pulling a wax-end through the sole of a shoe, and pointing to my dilapidated boot, feelingly exclaimed, "Behold the sad ravages of time !" The manufacturer laid down his awl, thrust his finder into a bole in the side of the boot, and giving a sudden twist, made the hole fifty per cent, larger than it was before. 44 Halloo! hold!" I exclaimed, turning pale, for 1 had intended to make the boots last me for every day wear until cold weather sets in, and I was about to swear at the fellow longer and louder than a trooper, but I reflected that profanity would not repair the damage in times like these, and so 1 merely remarked that I wanted a new pair. I have long had a weakness for what they call stitch downs, but have never worn a pair, partly because they oost a oonfound sight of money, and partly because they are too heavy to go to see the girls in For the first named reason I have left unbought a number of things in my time that I was not a little anxious to have. The owner of the shop took down from a peg a pair of stitch-downs. 1 tried them on. I mast do them the justioe to say that they fitted me as handsomely as if my feet had been melted and poured into them. I determined to buy them, cost what they might 44 I'll take these," said I, stamping my right foot violently on the floor, and taking my ten dollar bill from my poeket. 44 Take your pay out of that," said L, handing him the costly shinplaster. , I reilly believe the individual who stood before me at that moment was the most thoroughly astonished bwt maker that I ever saw. He 1 o<ked first at the money and then at me, turning alternately pale and red, while his eye-balls protruded from their sockets as il they had been shoved ontward by some hydraulic pressure within. At last, just as I was about to cry '-fire," or run fer a doctor, oi something of the sort, he spoke: -4 You are from the country, ain't you?" I answered tk.i T p - ul.4 f - a wmm. auu iiuut OI > lOOg W?J in the country, too, ain't you?'" " Tolerably deep." I replied. "I thought so," said he; "them boo^is eighteen dollars." I didn't say another word. I sat down and palled off " them boots" more in sorrow thai in anger, drew on my own, and walked out ol the shop. The proprietor of the establishment must hare taken me for the Prinoe of Wales or the owner of the 8t*te Bank. Eighteen dollars for a pair of boots! I earnestly trust that posterity will not think me too particular abou trifles, but I can't pay suoh prices. I went to the store of my old friend, Joht Ramage, on College street, where I got a firtl rate pair of boots for seven dollars, and having invested the rest of my money in other necessaries, I threw my saddlebags across my hors< and started home, fully eenvinoed by the experience of the day that the small grocer ol whom I purchased four pounds of oandles al fifty cents per pound was correct when he remarked that " things has ris." When I was spending my last red, it did nol occur to me that three toll-gates obstructed th< turnpike between my bouse and the city However, they did not hinder me much. I go through the first ene I came to by telling th< keeper that he would have to ohange a $2< aouar dui, wdmd, oi oourse, tie could not do The other two I rode around. I shall make i all right the next time I go to town. I went to know, now, why they make u? pa] such unhallowed prices for saeh articles, foi ioatanoe, aa sugar, floor, <fco. The sugar oroj of Loniaiana wu never better than the preeen one, and Davidson county never dreamed of i heavier orop of wheat than the laat. To mak< as nay two or three prices for artiolee tha ongnt to he almost a drag in the market i downright robbery?it ia villainona?in ahor it ia damnable, and there ought to be a law U Kt a atop to it. If there ia already anch i ir, then that law ia a "partioeps criminia"? an aeoeeeery to the raaoality?and ought to b< dealt with aoeordingly. In great haato, your friend truly, Q. W. B.
