The country, therefore, from Manassas to Washington, at least, has been cleared of rebels In arms, and we think for at least thirty or forty miles back of Msnassas. That, however, is bat oar opinion, as up to noon to-day It was not known In this city what Information concerning Che stare of affairs Immediately south and west at the late rebel stronghold our military leadars on the field had been able to obtain. what wow?

It waa well known to the Government here that the rebel Iron-clad fleet could not be ready to attempt a demonstration until about thia time, and every efTort waa made to meet thoee vessels with tb? Monitor'a heavy gnns. Mad Con^reas promptly responded to the President's and Secretary's recommendations In thia connection, Instead of wasting their time uni ?a inevitable negro, and In Intrigues to wholly overturn the Conatitution of the United States, under tb? plata or taere being a military necessity tor ?o doing, which no military man mm, we would not have le&t the Cumberland and Congres*, all mutt now knew. It is due to Mr. Grimes and others of the Senate's Naval Committee to call public attention to the fact that they have labored unceasingly for two years past to induce Congress to appropriate liberally for the construction of such ships as the Monitor. It is to be presumed that their advice will now have Its legitimate weight in this matter, in their Chamber. The Mystic, another such ship, will very shortly be ready; and the third in a week or two afterwards We shall therefore probably have all three on the station before the Merrlmac can be prepared for sea by the rebels, either one of which will be more than a match for her, as was demonstrated by Sunday's action, in which she was so sig nauy cnppiea oy me monitor, wiiaoui ice laiter* receiving any injury whatever.

I sailed from Fort Royal an the laat day of February, in tbe Wabaab, and on tbe?d lnat. entered Cumberland Sound by St. Andrew's Inlet, In the Mohican,Commander S.W.Godon,oa board of which ship 1 have hoisted my flag. The fleet compriaed the following vessels, sailing In tbe order In which they are named: Ottowa, Moblcan. accompanied by Ellen, Seminole, Pawnee, Pocahontaa, Flag. Florida, Jam s AdSpr, Bienville, Alabama. Keystone State?Seneca, luron, Femblna, laaac Smith, Penguin, Potoraaka, armed cutter Henrietta, armed transport McClellan ,tbe latter having on board the battalion of marina under tbe command of Maj Reynolds, and the transports Empire City, Marcon, Star of the South, Belvldere, Boston, George's Creek, containing a brigade under the command of Brig. General Wright. We came to anchor in Cumberland Sound at balf-past ten on the morning of the 2d, to make an examination of channel and wait for the tide. Here 1 learned from a contraband, who had been !ticked up at sea by Commander Lalner, and rom the neighboring residents on Cumberland Island, that tbe Rebels bad abandoned in hwte the whole of the defenses of Pernandlna, and were even at that moment retreating from Amelia Island, carrying with them such of their munitions as their precipitate flight would allow. Tbe object of conveying the whole fleet through Cumberland Sound was to turn the beavv worst on tbe aouth end of Cumberland and the north end of Amelii Islands, bat on reieivln?r thii intelligence 1 directed the gunboats and armed steamers of light draught from the main line, and placing them under the command of Commander P Dravton, of the (team sloop Pawnee. I ordered him to puah through the sound wttb the utmost speed, to save public and private property from threatened destruction, to prevent poisoning the wells, and to put a stop to all those outrages by the perpetrating of which the leaders of this nefarious war hope to deceive and exasperate the outbern people. In the meantime 1 went out of the sound and came by sea to the main entrance of this harbor. In consequence of bad weather I was unable to crocs the bar till this morning. Commander Drayton, aceompanled by Commander C. R. P. Koduers, with the armed launches and cutteri and the small-armed companl?"sfrom the Wabash, had arrived several hour* before me. Immediately on his entering the harbor, Commander Drayton sent Lieut. White, of the Ottawa, to hoist the flag on Fort Clinch, the first of the national rorti on wmcn tne ensign or tbe Union has retained It* proper piaceaince tbe flrst proclamation of the Prealdent of tbe United States wai taaued. A few scattering mnaket abota were flrad fromj the town by tbe flying enemy, when it waa diacovered that a railroad train waa about to start Commander Drayton, on board the Ottawa, Lt. Com'd'g Stevens, chased thistraln for two miles, and fired several shells at it, aiming at tbe locomotive, some of which took effect. It was reported that tbe Hon. David Yulee, late Senator of the United States from the State of Florida, escaped from this train and took to the bush Commander C R P. Rogers, pnsblng ahead with the launches, captured the rebel steamer Darlington, containing military stores, army wagons, mules, forage, 4c., and fortunately secured the drawbridge, which waa held during tbe night by the second launch of the Wabash There were passengers, women and children, in tbe Darlington, and the brutal Captain suffered her to be fired upon and refnsed to bolst a white flag,, notwithstanding the entreaties of tbe wnmjtn \ftnnp urn a IninraH I ..v hjhivw * ?*vuu ?uc vapwiu of the steamer home ? prisoner HIb nam*' i?

Mary's with the Ottawa and took poMeulon of the town,driving outa picket of tb? enemy'a cavalry. Early In the morning the town of Fernandlna was also occupied by a party of teamen and marines from Commander Drayton's command. In both places moat of the inhabitants had fled by order, it in said, of the Rebel authoritiea. A company of seamen and marines under Lieut Miller was aent from the Mohican to bold Fort Clinch. It la reported to me by Lieut Commanding Dowries, of the Huron, that the whole structure of me rtaroaa on me Kernandlna aide, Including the swinging drawbridge, is qnlte unlnjure<f The Rebels have done some damage by tire to the treaael work on the'Otber side of the river, but I am not yet Informed of Its extent Bev? rgl loco motives, baggage cars, tenders, freight cars, and some other property, besides that found In the steamer Darlington, have been recovered. The whole number of guus discovered up to this time Is thirteen, embracing heavv 32-pounders, 8 inch guns, and one -0 and one 120-pounder rilled guns. The town* of St. Mary's and Fernacdina are uninjured I visited the town, Fort Clinch, and the earthworks on the sea face of the Island. It is impossible to look at these preparations for a vigorous defense without being surprised that th<?v mhnnirf I have been voluntarily deserted. The Wteries on the north and northeast shore* are as complete as art can make them. Hlx are well concealed and protected by range* of sand hill* lnfroatcontalnlng a perfect shelter for the men, and are so mall ana thoroughly covered by the natural grovrth, and by the varied contours of the land, that to strike them from the water would be the mere result of cbanre. A battery of six guns, though larger, and affording, therefore, a better mark, U equally well sheltered and marked. These batteries, and the heavy euns mounted on Fort Clinch, commanded all the turnings of the main ship channel, and rake an approacbingenemy. Besides these there was another battery on the'south end of Cumberland Island, the Are of which would cross the channel irside of the bar. The difficulties arising from the indirectness of the channel and from tbe shallowness of the bar would have added to the defences by keeping the aDDrear.hin<r 41 ? ?

We are told that 6eneral Lee pronounced the place perfectly defensible. We are not surprised at this, If the Information Is true. We captured Port Royal, but Pernandlna and Fort Oil tea have been given to us. We had on the expedition Mr. W.

Every exertion waa made by ui to get all the a peed on the Roaaoka that the two tags wen capable of giving her, bat In conacqeenee of oar bad steerage we did not nt ahead aa rapidly am we desired to do The Merrlmac went op and immediately attacked the Congreaa and Comber, land, particularly the latter ahip, which was hid from ua by the land. When aboutseven or eight m 1 les frem Fortress Monroe the M lnnesots gsou tided. We continued to at&nd on, and when we came-in eight of the Cucaberlaad, we saw that she hsd careened over, apparently fall of water. The enemy, who had been joined by two or three steamers from James River, now devoted themselves exclusively to the Congreaa, bat she being aground, could Ming bat five guns to bear on them, and at ten minutes before four o'clock we had the mortification of seeing her haul down her flag.
I continued to stand in till we found ourselves in thrne ann a half wvakh ?? i ? ? ? ? ..auviaw ?t Bkbt , nuu WOS VU tbe ground astern. Finding that we could go no farther, 1 ordered one of the tags to tow us round, and aa soon a* the Roanoke's head was poWed down the bay, I found she was afloat gain. 1 directed tl e tugs to go to tbe assistance of tbe Minnesota, underIbe hope that, with tbe two others which bad accompanied her, they would be able to get her off. But up to the time that I now write they have not succeeded In doing so. At 5 o'clock the frigate St. Lawrence, In tow of tbe Cambridge, passed us, and not long after she also grounded, but bv the aid of the Cam. bridge she waa got afloat again, and, being unable to render any aaaiatance to the Minnesota, came down the harbor. In passing the batteries at SewaU's Point, both going and returning, the rebels opened their fire on u>, which waa returned frcm our pivot suns, but the range waa too great for them, while the enemy's shot fell beyond us. One shot went through our foresail, cutting away two of our shrouds, and several shells burst o-er and near the ablp, scattering their fragments on the deckBetween seven and eight o'clock we discovered that the rebels had set fire to the Congress, and she continued to burn until 1 o'clock, when she blew up. This was a melancholy satisfaction to me, for, u she had foUen into the hands of the enemy, it waa far better to have her destroyed than that ahe should be employed against us at some future day. It was the impression of some of my officer* that the rebels hoisted the French flag. but I heard that the Monitor had arrived and soon after Lieutenant Commanding YV orden came on board, and I immediately ordered him to go up to the Minnesota, hoping she would be able to Keep off an attack on the Minnesota till we had got her afloat again.
