The Benton and Mound City?the iMter the lowest djwn and lying on tho Missouri side at the point? shelled the enemy's upper battery all day, at long range?21 miles?while tho attention of the mortars ?u likewise directed to the same locality. With the aid of the glass it has been ascertained that the enemy have six batteries in sight along the Kentucky shore, above the head of Island No. 10, mounting a large num ber of heavy guns?forty-nine of which have been counted. At 11.45 a. m. yesterday the enemy opened on us from their upper battery, without effect. P?Ant 1 ii ?A 'A n m M. A VUi ?' J/.

We were on the Missouri shore at the time, on the trans port Wilsan, lying just above, and observed th t the shot from tins battery reached around and beyond ua, coming clofj enough to cause the speed; removal to a po?nt higher up. The expedition, consisting of '.wo steam tugs, with stores and fuel for six days, which left yester - day morning to explore a channel across through the sloughs and c verflowed bottoms on tbe Missouri shore to N?v Madrid, after fork ing all day, and only fir "irg 2j teet of water (the tugs drawing o and '*> feet), returned to tbe Benton, the expedition beiug a failure, of course. A canoe or skiff can make it, but it is vuii ui iuc ^uwiiuu nuu a Jicauiuum UI lug. There is a fair land route, distance fire miles, across to New Madrid, when the Mississippi is within its natural banks?one which General Pope could marcn his army across. The country on both shores id overflowed for miles, except in the 'ear of the enemy's bat teries in front of us. This is the only high land, (he strip being from five to eleven miles in^width. and"only fire miles across from the bead of Island 10 to Tiptonville, which is twen ty-si.x miles by water. The enemy V force on this strip of dry land is reported to be 1 !,?(?<?. A messenger just arrived from Gen. Pope to Col.

'J he Conestoga aoon opened out and shelled the woods in that vicinity.

We have it from a reliable source that our mortars have scattered their camps, and knocked down several houses?one reported to be Gen. l'olk's headquarters?on the head of the island. Doubtless many lives were lost, as the shells were seen by our pickets to burst in and directly over their camp. A messenger, who left Hickman yesterday, report* the enemy Phi) strong, three miles hack of that p< int and nine miles this side of I nion City. Their cavalry scouts have nl?o appeared on the heights back of town, await in; an opportunity to erect a battery on the bluffs just back ot Hickman, and commanding the river. From some unknown cause, Col. Uuford did not leave any force whatever at llickman, as we came down on Saturday last. The loyal citizens have asked Flag Officer Foot* and Col. Cufurd for protection. One of the gunboats will probably return and lay oil ia the river at iiickiaan, in order to prevent the erection of batteries. A Lieutenant and several men, from Cuford's 27th Illinois Hegiment, yesterday, in a skiff, worked through the swatnp. (being hidden in the cotton-wood.) to a point within two hun dred yards of the upper fort. They only report one gun?a whopper?left there. This morning we can see three mounted at the same place, indicating that tbe Lieutenant was mistaken.

Two or three guns were dismounted, and some heavy breaches made in their works, but they struggled manfully to repair the damage*, perfectly defiant, as it seemed, of the fearful perils which surrounded them. * * * "Good for Kilty !" shouts Capt.

(Correspondence of the Cblcjgo Tribune T The trine of a mortar is the very poetrjr of a battle. A bag of powder weighing from 18 to 2u pounds is dropped into the bore ol the huge monster. The derrick drops the shell in; tbe angle is calculated; a long eord is at iached to the primer; the gunner sieps out upon the platform, and the balance of the erew upon the shore. The eaptain jives tbe word, the gunner gives bis eord a ruddea jerk, a crash like a thousand thunders follows, a tongue of flame leaps from the moath of the mortar, aad a column of smoke reile up in beaatiful rUer v spirals, developing into ringi (ft exquisite proportions One can ?*? the fbell as it leare# the mortar flying through the air. apparently no larger than a marble. The next you see of the shell, a beautiful cloud of *moke bursts into sight, caused by the explo sion. Imagine ten of these mortars thundering at once, the air filled with smoke clouds, the gun boats belching out destruction and completely hidden from sight in whirls of smoke, the shell screaming through the air with an un earthly sound, and the distant guns of the en emy sending their shot and shell above and around us, dashing the water up in glistening Mlnmna HllH iaf r?f onvow on/l VAI1 v?

Pope has erected batteries commanding the river, at Riddle's Point, on the Missouri shore, below Point Pleastnt. Th'i gives the Federal troops command ot the river down to the overflowed land on the Tennessee shore, and completely cuts off the retreat of the Ilebel troops at Island No. 10. even if they evacuate their works rfnd march across the neck of land to the river below Point Pleasant. ftlBCIT'lCAnA.

He said he wanted a wife right off, auJ baa no time to look up one for himself, but should be in town in the course of a day or two to marry the woman which he depend od on his city friends having ready for him. Sash an orJer rather trok the merchants aback, but the man was too good a customer to disoblige. As they had no supply of the article on hand, for sale, one of the Grm went out to hunt it up, and at an Intelligence oflice got track of a girl who could speak German and English, was tolerable good-looking, and very much wanted to find a husband.
