THE Bl'RNSIDE EXPEDITION. > 1 List of the Regiments Composing It? Names of the Officer*?Armament of Vesaela. The Cinoinnati Commercial having published ail the dotaila of the Burnride Expedition, there ia no longer any motive for other papers keeping it a secret, especially as it has reached its destination, and is performing ita work by this time. We copy from the Commercial the following details: Immediately after the Hatteras expedition the Government set to work to organise divisions and fleets for further operations of a like character. The Port Royal expedition and its successes followed. Gen. Buraaide was detailed ninety days ago to begin the pre* liminary preparations of another, though its destination and exact character were not dei finitely determined until a much later period. - The early preparations were confined to the ^ purchase and building of vessels fitted for the purpose, in the ports of New York and Boston. Any one who looks at the proportions of the fleet of transports as they lie in the stream, can judge of the amount of labor required to gather together so many vessels all combining the same peculiar characteristics. Much of the time Gen. Burnside was the only man who attended to the details or business of the Division, and it ia only recently that he has had the assistance of staff officers. In fact, his Brigadiers have been, with one exception, appointed within the last forty days, and have been on hand here during the last twenty days. The Brigadier Generals commanding brigades in this Division are as follows : Gen. John G. Foster, First Brigade. Gen. Jessee L. Reno, Second Brigade. Gen. John G. Parke, Third Brigade. These officers are all taken from the regular * army. Gen Foeter is a graduate of Weet Point, served in every battle in Mexico, was wounded at Molino Del Rey, afterwards promoted to a Captaincy, served in the Engineers, and was one of the gallant band of defenders k in Fort Sumter. He is thirty-six years of age. and a very superior officer. G4n. Jes.ee L Reno is a graduate of West Point, of the c! <sa <>f 1B46, and commanded a v battery in the war with Mexico, taking part in IP every battle from Vera Crui to the City of Mexico. He is about the age of Gen. Foster, and is reputed to be an experienced officer. F Gen John G. Parke graduated at West Point in 1850, acd has since been a Coptain in the Engineers. He has seen much frontier ser>ice. having crossed from the Atlantic to the Pacific three times in theoourae of bis explorations. The public can therefore rest assured that this Division is not to be afflicted with acy political Brigadiers. tob troops. As yet only partial and incorrect lists of the regiments of this Division have been published. Indeed, the troops have been arriving up to this evening, and the forces have been augmented at least twenty-five per cent, within the last week, and they now excel by the same proportion the land forces which embarked from here for Port Royal. The following reS'mcnU and batteries compose the entire land ree of the expedition that will embark from this point. I give them in the order of their brigade*: rIRST BRIGADE?GBW. POSTER.

The Battery consists of six 10-pounder Parrott rifled guns. tbb bxpediti05ary vessels * The transport fleet, now in this harbor, comprises every variety of vessels, from the 1,000ton steamer and ship down to the 100-ton schooner. The total number of vessels of all kinds, aside from the naval forces, is 45, and are divided up as follows : 9 steamers, 9 propellers or gunboats, 4 ships, 5 barks, I brig, 17 schooners, and 5 floating batteries The name* of the steamer transports I give below, with a statement as to whether chartered or purchased: Steamer Ginde, Capt.

Of th?_above, the bark Guerilla, brig Dra- I coon, and schooneis Highlander, Scout and I Skirmisher, each carry onogun, a 12-pounder I boat howitzer. The Schooner Recruit, Captain George Cog- I geshall, is detailed as a hospital ship, and is I undercharge of Dr. Samuel A Green, Acting I Medical Director of the Division Hospital.? I The Recruit earries one gun. Besides the above, the schooners Plaud^nine, I Sarah M. Smith, Elisa Segur, Glenwood, Griswold, Rotche and Emma, aro laden with provi- I sions and stores, and the schooners Sea Bird, I and Mary H. Banks carry a pontoon bridge I train, and the Colonel Satterly a siege train of I four eight-inch mortars. In addition, the I schooners Sarah Mills, W. A. Crocker. Maria Pike and Edward Slade are all laden with | horses. The total number of guns in the fleet of I transports is 45, all of which, save four, are rifled, with a range of fully two and a half I miles These guns, together with 5,860 rounds I of ammunition for the same. were all furnished I under a contract with Mr. Norman Wiard, the I inventor of the steel rifled cannon, who filled the order in the short space of two weeks, and I and at the economical cost of $60,000. Every I gun is supplied with field carriages, and can I be ased with the same facility on land as upon I sea and are equivalent to just so many pieces of field artillery, The Hotchkiss projectile is the kind of ammunition used. Each troop I ship is furnished with 40,000 rounds of car- I triage, navy revolvers and boarding cutlasses I to repel an attack. VARIOUS DETAILS. There are numerous details connected with I this expedition that are worthy of greater elab- I oration at my hands than jour space will per- I mit. I will, therefore, allude to several of the I most prominent, and for the rest can safely I promise that should the fortunes of war bring I them into glorious prominence, they will be I duly recorded in history to the extent of my I limited ability. Among these details is the I construction and arming of fivo floating bat- I teries. which, though not directly associated I with the land forces or the transports, have I yet been gotten up under the sole supervision I of General Burnside. A good idea of their character is obtained I when I say that they are in every respect sim- I ilar to the strongest and largest boats on the I North river or Erie Canal. They are almost I solid from de?k to keelson, and are divided | into five water-tight compartments They I have but one deck, on which the guns are I mounted, and their working is to be protected I by breastworks of bales of wet hay. The eal- I iber of the gun is ft and 12-pounder, Wiard's I rifled, with a range of 2J miles for certain I execution. Their names are as follows, and I are very indicative of their destructive char- I acter: I Bombshell 2 guns. Grapeehot. 2 guns. Grenade 3 guns. I Roeket 3 guns. Shrapnel 2 guns. From twelve to sixteen men will be required I for each battery, and the whola fleet is under I command of Lieut. Ernest Staples, United I States Navy. I await with anxiety the chron-1 icling of the part ^ear 'n the attack. ROMANCE, VERY NEAR US. Willis, in his last spicy letter from Washington, (to the Home Journal,) thus describes a very charming woman : ' I have had. this morning, a conversatien with one of the most indisputably beautiful and brilliant of our "up-town" belles of a year or two ago in New-York, who is now "following the drum;" and it is curions to see what a development of character?of its dormant resources and capabilities?this lady-fellow-soldiering, or sharing openly and bravely in the fatigues, privations and achievements, of male patriots and soldiers, is likely to produce. Remembering how often my belle-omniscient friend, the "indispensable Brown," had paid his homage to the japenica in that dark hair aa it paaaed in to a ball, I could not but wonder seriously at what might really be the camp utilities of such bright eyes and dainty fingers. I ventured accordingly to inquire with some particularity, and?woman of fine talents and great decision as she naturally is?the answers were both frank and definite. It would instruct and improve the female reader, if I oould literally transcribe her words; but I can only give an outline of them?enough, perhaps, to convey a tolerable idea of what campaigning it, for a lady. I asked whether the mere sewing-on of a button, or correcting a trifling incoherence of cloth or linen, for her young officer-husband or his comrades, wag the extent of her military service. But that was the least of it! Her last job, (before leaving the camp, on her pre- I sent trip of replenishment,) was the menaing of the broken windows in an old house which serves for temporary quarters?setting panes of glass, with knife and putty, like any other respeotable glacier. Ha vine been always aware of a certain mechanical genius of her own, which, of oourse, found no development in gay society, it has been rather a relief to her that there was a great deal of amall carpentering to direct and do, and ahe had found herself equal to most of it, with her own hammer and ohisel. Her influence over the common aeldiers was sometimes salutary?one violent and powerful fellow, who was obstreperously drank and rebellious, a day or two ago, having instantly obeyed her orders, when any farther resistance would have been at the imminent danger of his life But, l. *t of all, she found that her "looks" had the'r conciliatory uses. The Virginia families of the neighborhood, sulky and insulting aa they had been to some ef the 1 Yankee*" who had preceded them, were, to her and her regiment, every-way kind and attentive. Then letter-answering is aV important aervUc among the soldiers; and she bad ettd as ananuenais for them, when their fincere were eold and their hearta heavy. In faet her duties were ao many?(besides the natural feminine-itiet of nursing and stitching) ?that she wondered how they ever oould have done without her' Notice to Watch-Makers. S. A J.

TELEGRAPHIC NEWS. The War in Kentncky. Chicago, Jan. 18.?A special dispatch to the Times, of this city, dated twelve miles from Columbus, 16th inst., 9pm, says : A heavy reconnoissance was made this afternoon by Gen. Grant and staff, with Osband'* cavalry, resulting in getting reliable Information of the routes leasing out of Columbus toward* Blandville and other towns. A distance of over forty miles was made In six hours. No rebels were discovered, although at one time the reconnoitering party were within Awe miles of Columbus. A gentleman formerly of Lynn, Massachusetts, reached here from New Orleans last night. He had passes from Georgia to pass the rebel lines at New Madrid and Columbus. On Saturday the rebels were In the greatest pertubatlon on account of the movements of the troops from Cilro The general opinion was that the troops were bound for the Tennesses river. The people in this section expect the direst calamities to fall on them in the coming struggle, but as far as possible take no sides since the Federal troops have been in their midst. Chicago, Jan. 18 ?A special dispatch to the Times, dat^d Cairo, the 18th inst , says : Four deserters from Columbus arrived here last night. They report that there are 40.000 rebe^ troops eneamped at Columbus Mr. Collins, of Boston, also arrivtd last ntgbt from New Orleans, which place he left eight days ago. He escaped by representing himself as a bearer of dispatches from the Belgian Consul, but was detained twodays at Columbus. Hesays the feeling at the South is becoming worse and more bitter every day. [special to the Chicago Trib'ine ] A gentleman from Columbus reports that a United States war steamer fired into a French war steamer which was trying to run the blockade at Neto Orleans. Our steamer tired twelve shots Into the French vea?el The affair created great excitement at Memphis and other places [The true facts in reference to the French war steamer are given below. She was not tired into at all. The De Soto arrived at Ship Island, having In tow the French steamer of war Mlltan, disabled, the De Sttfe having rtrt . kito her at night off the Passes orthe Mississippi river on account of her acting very suspicious manner. It turned out afterwarjtfthat the Frenchman was going Into the river, by permission of the government, to take off several families that were d<>s rous of leaving the territory of Davis A Co. The steamer displayed no lights wheivrfnn into, end ail her actions seamed to prove that she was a stranger trying if our blockade was one of paper or not ] ____ The War In >lisssnri.
