TUH PL-m OF THE E*E>IY [From the Memphis Appeal, Feb. 1 J The Northern Journal*, in diaeaMing the plans of their generals, give us intimation of one probable feature in their programme, wbicb? if sueeewful, wonld proVe tha Leavt'at tlow that oould povibly be inflicted upon onr confederacy It is nothing more nor less than catting off all commanieation between the Potomac and the Mississippi Valley, by pushing forward two vast armies through East Tennessee and North Carolina, thus performing a piece of military strategy designated by Pat).. I ? ?w |TIW*W(U& bUU V/UU IOI XliO HI UIICO of the East and West are now connected by two lines of railway?one, the East Tennessee and Western Virginia, passing through the mountainoa* region of this State; and the other, the Weldon and Wilmington, running along the Atlantic coast. Both of these roads are in a measure somewhat exposed to the assault of the enemy, the former being aboat seventy and the latter near forty miles from the advance guard of the federal forces on c ? a rr? i-.i? ?-? Movuis iu cuuiucro nvuiD'.'ij una Pamlico Sound. Military aflfiirs are in a situation at present to especially indicate, if not invite, a trial of this Mhegja. The Barnside naval expedition baa rendezvoused on the coast of Nortn Carolina, with a reported force for land operations of atoot thirty thousand men. which may be inereaaed at any time by the addition of twentyfive thousand more under Sherman and Dupont. now at Port Royal. It is evidently the desigu of this fleet, if it doe* anything at all, to move on Newbern, Washington or Elisabethtown. with the view of their capture and the subsequent establishment of a base of operation against the interior portion of North Caro nun. In the meanwhile strenuous efforts may b? ifiade to penetrate Etst Tennessee by way of Cumberland Qap, or some other entrance, ao u to reach the great trunk railway between the Eaat and the Weat, at Knoxville or Greenville. This is known to have long been a favorite plan of the enemy since the commence ment of the war, and the importance of the movement has been repeatedly dwelt upon by the most sagacious and observant journals of the Northwest. Despite the almost insurmountable difficulties of accomplishing such an expedition, where every mountain pass would be made a Thermopylae, the late success of the enemy near Somerset, may possibly attract his attention to its supposed feasibility, while he still exults with exuberant ecstasy over his triumph. Indeed, we are already t<.ld that General Baell has dispatched largo reinforcement* to Thomas and Sctxepff since the battle of the 19th nit., though their ccmbined coiarawere knows to be at least three times as large as that of General Crittenden, which had rallied at last accounts at Liringston, about fifteen miles from the Kentucky State line. This shows a disposition to follow up tb? victory by pressing forward into Tennessee as speedily as possible, and give battle to Crittenden's retired army before it can be reiuforced in sufficient numbers to insure successful resistance in an attack. Of course General Aldert Sidney .Johnston, who eniors the ennfidsnM of that iumnU ,.f tK? MUsi&uppi Valley to m greater extent than any other military man in the Soathwest, will at a glance observe the evil consequences that in oat follow from another defeat of oar forces in this disaffected region, and will take prompt steps to arrest any such threatening disaster. If General Critteuden shoald again be overwhelmed with superior numbers, and is forced to retreat still futher South, it requires no superior sagacity to discern the fact that the enemy would be greatly encouraged in his attempt to prosecute the plan to which we hare alluded. The movements in tha field of a vast military campaign, like those upon a chessboard, are as shifting as the sands of the sea, and may be expedited or entirely abandoned upon the happening of the most trivial and apparently unimportant contingency. This principle applied may stimalate Ihe advance ?f the left wing of Buell's army, under Thomas and Schoepff. unless it is confronted with a counter force of equally-large proportions. We have to contend with the disagreeable fact that there is in East Tennessee, the field M4 this operation, a large, disaffected, if not treasonable element, ready at all times to give aid and eomfort to the armed legions of the enemy in their coming. The section of North Carolina, too, within the vicinity of Uatteraa, has been charged with * subdued sentiment of disloyalty, which, if tru?, would offer strong inducements to invasion by the expeditionary force of Barnaide. Fifty thousand men pushed through from each direction, while the situation at other points is preserved, would necessitate the utmost diligence and energy on the part of the Government authorities to keep the Confederacy from being dangerously pierced in its Achilles beel. Oar philosophy in this matter would dictate the eminent wisdom of the adage, that an ounce of prevention is worth a peund of cure. naiMUd Veeeels?Enr??rti and Aaaer. Icaa. The champion of the French navy. La Qloire, is now actually in the dockyard, stripping off iu mail, in preparation for some more perfect mode of arranging iu armor. The foreinoat ship of the British navy, the Warrior, most evidently share the same fate. A short trial trip, of two or three hundred miles, has disclosed mch serious defects of construction that even the London Times indirectly suggests the possibility that tha h??t mode of building mail-clad frigate* hu not jet been attained The fact* warrant each a conclusion. so far ae English practice is exemplified in that vessel. Although the Warrior experienced no very rough weather on its short excursion, it was found that the leverage ex braised upon the plates and fastenings by the motion of the vessel, as she passed over the waves, had loosened many of the plates, and actually caused such dangerous leaks as to require docking for immediate repairs.

Situated at Dover, on the west bank of tbe Cumberland, where that river washes an obtuse angle, It istwe'.vt miles southeast of the latter fort, and mounts about ten 84 and 39 pounders.

The position is important as controlling the river aa far up aa Clarkesville. and, in conjunction with Fort Henry and Tenneaaee bridge, aa breaking off from the rebels some twenty miles of railroad communication We are without any reliable Information in regard to the rebel garriaen at Fort Donelaon. Up to the 20'-h of January it was only occupied bv a few companies, but may have been, and probably has been, largely reinforced since that time. Possibly the bulk of Gen. Tllghman'a command retreated there Instead to Paria, as la generally supposed. Or fresh troops mar have been thrown into it from Clarkervllle. Clarkeavllle. where the railroad croaaea the Cumberland, ia about thirty ml Ira from Dover. Extensive and formidable rebel worka have been constructed here for two or three montha, and a large number of heavy guns ahlpped thither, it la aaid, for the protection of the bridge and the communication with Nashville Itlaalao reported that Geo.

Rk-oocupatios of Romskt.?The Wheeling (Va ) Pre** ?av? ; For two or three day* rumora have reached the city reapecting the re-occupation of Romney and the probabilities of an early advance upon Winc beater. The sum of th?m all is that Romnev has been re-occupied, and Lander haa thrown outpos's upoo the Moorfleld and Blue's Gap roada. So soon as the roads will permit, and concert of action from Banks' column can be secured, no doubt the country will be entirely cleared between Romnev aad Winchester by two distinct detaebmenta. diverging at Moorfleld, and uniting thereafter at the junction of tbe Moorfleld and North wcnriu turnpi se wng ioc main ooay or iae mrcw, which will take the direct road via Blue's Gap With complete preparation of force, and equipage, and a clearance of all the region roundabout, it they progreas, there la no doubt bnt a union of the force* of Lander Irom Komney, Uanks from Martinaburg, and Wilson from Hancock, couki be accompliibed withlr\ two days from the commencement of their movements The enemy, however, will probably be prepared for the attack, as they cannot have made their last retreat from Romney with anv o her expectation, and their facilities for procuring reinforcements are ample. So we may expect to hear of a heavy engagement near or at Winchester as soon as the weather wiil permit.
