Fith in Abundance, rfc. Since (be departure of the steamer 8. R. Spauldlng, with Colonel Weber's retfimont of Turner Rilled, or, mora pro|?erly, the detachment from that raiment which baa toon occupying Fort Hattcras, nothing has occurred on land worthy of particular notice. On the sea, however, thorn li.Lrt bfon a capture of a schooner attomptuig to run tho blockade and convoy supplies to tho rebels, and tho scuttling or wrecking of another, i ft much larger schoonor, within light o1 the shore. Tho clrouinstanci* of both affairs, so far a I saw them, are as follows:?Two schooners were ob' served at an early hour thU morning making thwr way from a southerly direction, and heading towards the inlet. Tho Susquehanna lay at anchor about three miles frotn tho mouth of the Inlet, In her usual position, and ut that hour had not bur Hag Hying. Tbo schooners approached to within two or throe niilus of her, when they discovered her true character, and also tbo condition of alUirs at the Inlot. Tho wind was blowing qui to fresh, and they wero unable to escape. Ono baldly ntnoi towards the Sus<i Johanna, and,being signalled to como to, jowered bur sails and came to an anchor. On being hoarded by a boat from the frigate, It was found to bo the Argyle. The captain professed to bo bound from tho British Provinces to Key West; that he was in want of water, and had run in for tlio pur pore <? replenishing bis vesssl with a supply of that desired article. But ho jtoutly asserted he did cot know what place this was, or that it was ever fortified or in the rob -Is' hands. His etory was to > Improbable for bnilof,and tho schooner was declared a prize to tho Susq:\olmnna. Tito captain stated that his cargo was fish. Whether this is true or not has not keen decidod, as no examination of her cargo h.is been made. Shu will bo sent North, eith >r to I'hllado'.pliia or New York, in charge of Master's Mate Cook and a prize crow from the Susu ."hanua. The othor schooner and its fate do not soom to liavo been observod by those on the Susquehanna. It wan a mile perhaps behind tbo Argylo, and under full wall. It wu.s 81 en to strike suddenly, and all the masts, sails an l rigging were observed to pitch ahead and go by the board, the bull to roll over onco or tvrice. and nothing afterwards waa seen of her, save two or three large pieces floating on the water. The distance was so great 'rom us, and the sea so high, that it was impossible to <listiugul.-h a human being on the fragments of th0 wreck, even If one bad clung to them; nor could wo see any boats in tho vicinity, and I doubt not all on board 'wore lost. The schooner was a flno largo one, a fore andafter, with stay sails set, and beat ir.g overy indication of being a fast one. Whether she was a nierctinnt vessel attempling to run the blockade, or a privateer returning from a cruise, fir the purpQM of refitting or taking in provi- : ions, cuu only bo conjectured. And we are In doubt as to wbetner she struck on an unknown shoal or rock, or whether she was purposely wrecked, rather than to get Into the clutches of the Susquehanna, the captain and crew preferring tho chances of ds.ith In the b-eakers to tbo risk of feeiirg the halter at some oth -r day. We know nothing of her name, the port she bailed from, or Wh>t her business wan so near Ilattcias Inlet; bat that She was totally )*t, with probably a'l on board, we know to a certainty. Perhaps we may get a clue to Identify her when the fragments of the wreck come ashore. Till then all is wrapimd in mystery. I hardly know what to say of our position hero. Of i's Impo. *uce In a military sense there is no difference O; -pinion, but lu every olho- view, 1 believe ail who j.ave seen It conc'ir In assorting that it is tli tu sterile, u verted aud desoato spot that the sun klii:i<a <?.

Small tufts of slurp spearlike grawk Jwv# pierced through the sterile sod here and there, ??4air,igfrte to maintain a decent appearance, but %> di n'tmg sand frequently sweeps them lirora Sight A lt:w "yopum" bushes, not imifke the whortleberry of the lj"'th, s -eni to get a livelihood Hi spots; but ail else is Uarr<9 aand, that gl> ains and g'ows under a tropic snn, " , 'UfC eya tiras at the dismal prospect, and turns to roitself on the ocean's deep blue and the flash lug siirf. "Twt taaBk.ialfkoly to be buried by tho saad that drifts in clouds over it during the gales that blow hare with in tonne violence at all seasons of the year. And I may horo (tigress a little to say that the aand here Is a confounded nuisance. It is on all sides of ns, under us, over us, in our clothiug, in our mouths, our ears aud u<?li lis. Is> wa ait d iwn to our frugal rapist, our mouths are s<?ai filled with Band that grits terribly as we |?rform the opera, tion of mastication,discomposing our n xvoa and making us uncomfortable generally. I ven our pi|>e, tlie only aource of consolation left us, rewards our first inhalation with sand as well as smoke. It is all sand, sand, sandl We may bo buried In the sand sum" day or other, and none know where to look for us. With all this staring us in iii< 1 ae,e, our countenances are ?;<>wiy assuming a sorrowful expression, Dot unlike thai of the Spbynx, as li<! looks cuit of bis cold, stony eyes, on the desert sands. Hereafter I shall bring a handful of grass down hero to adorn my quarters, and, while here, shall be most h appy to see a man wbo wears weeds on his bat. Tlion, too, though there is water on every stile, wo have precious little to drink, and that of the most oxecruble kind. The water brought from the fort becomes bud when exposed to the sun in barrels, and the well water obtained hore is of a very |xx>r quality. To one who has boon accustomed to driuk good, cool, sparkling spring water. It comes very liard to drink such as we hivihore, but all this can and will be remedied in good time. This d'prlvati n of good water tr what the enemy pr mi.-o I us, and the thought of it af ' forded thum immense consolation for the Iobs of this Stronghold. As it Is on.' of the only two thoy can enjoy, we ought to 1>? charitable enough to allow them to do so id pea<?. The second source of consolation they hava is tlioir practical knowl?og-> of tho number, size and bilueas of the execrable mosquitoes, who rife. tins part of the coast. Co?ntli-s# la numbers, of iniinei*" sire.agl*wishing length and strength of sting, of consummtie tact tn selecting a weak spot for attack, and teua' io is in Its assaults, it is an onemy we dread far more than we fear the rebels, unit one which would worry the life c. it o! a rhinoceros, if it should be o unfortunate as ro (ln.i itself in tlu ir company. W.th mosquitoes, the |M*tiferi ! s mud Hies and other discomforts 1 have barely hinted at, you may well imagine what place wo have to llv<i In. However, wo have ideuty of tish, oysters, clam--, wild fowl, and other good things, it we will only tako the trouble to g -t them. We get plenty or fine fish of Um m?st dainty flavor, and oysters and clams in abundance, o we shal. not starve. Sweet potatoes, mo ions, Ac., out bo pun hosed for a font;. But we get very little fresh meat, and that not of ths best kind. So you see we have our c mforts as well as din comforts; but I am bound to say that the former will not outweigh tho latter. Hut to return to th subject. Both of the forts are now in excellcut c<H. it in for defence, and will be furl Iter strengthened. Altlu gli w may not bo called upon to try our ability to successfully defend our position, it is well enough to aiwuys be pre }>arod for an assat.lt.

What is needed now in action?Immediate action?or tho fruits of our victory bore will havo (dipped from our very grasp. The more I mingle with the inhabitants of thin island tho more 1 am convinced of the accuracy of my previous reports in regard to tl.o sterling sentiments for tho Union which they entertain. I am s ire I do sot mistake their truo sentiments when I say that tliey aro. scarcely without an exception, loyal to the Union and the government, and anxious to see the Stars and Stripes again Healing over ovory inch of tho State. How far thoso convictions may impel tliem to go In their defence I am not prepared to say. Undoubtedly many of them will, if invited, take nparms In support of the government, but how many cannot at< yet bo ascertained. All the poop'o on tho is'and aro perfectly friendly to us. Since tliey h ive found that we do not come among them to destroy their property, ravish tliei- wives and daughters and lay desolate their Holds, as they wcro lod to believe by the rebel loaders and politicians, they manifest no f?ar at our approach, but, on tho contrary, entertain us in the most host liable manner when wo visit them. Wo |tay for every thing we buy in the most liberal manner, furnish them with flour and provisions, of which tlw y are in nood, and treat them at all times as friends and citizens of the same country, living undor tho sauio benign institutions and upholding tho same flag. The elfocts of this treatment aro not confined to tho islanders alone. lteport has reached the main IhikI ami the good tiilings soon spread far and wi le throughout tho Suite. People begin to open their eyes to their truo condition and to their wants, and the fear they have entertained of our coming among them his nearly passed sway, and they now desire us to conic among tin ni; and if wo couduct ourselves as patriots and truo soldiers they say tli y will not ofler us opposition, but will sell tia provisions,furnish us wuh information,and aid us by their arms if necessary. So It stands at this moment. Yesterday I accepted the invitation of tho very worthy ilergyman, whose pariah comprises tho island, to attend Ji in h at tho "lower meeting ho se," and meet with :lie islanders In their devotion. W.th Captain Jordlne uid Adjutant Kvans, of the Zouaves. 1 embarked in a 'csa-u," as the rough and rugged fisherman who had ?>nie twelve miles for tho purpose of conveying us across lh? covo denominated his "dug out," and with a favortide wind we |Missed out over tho shoals that lie between Korl .'la:k and Pamlico Sound and struck acioss to amp Wool, which lies on tho west side of the island, lere I lp> nt a few moments in visttlng tho barracks of lie men, most of which were nearly completed, while ilhers were being rapidly push- d forward. Here, hs at 'orI dark, and in-teed as on all the southern pai t of lie island, great crimp', .nit is made of tho water wliich he men arn ohlj ?d to drink. It is obtain <1 from sliallow sells dug in tUe sand, and tho water, which percolates h. otifcli the sand licm the Bound or ocean, is of a in. St detestable character. Uruckish and warm, >vlth suggestions jf fever and ague in every drop,the gorge rises against it, rnd it is not for some time that you can drink it without iriinaces. Aftor a little it becomes quite palatable, but i lanev never vcrv lieaitbv. Passing through tho camp, which is in command of Lieutenant Colonel lletts, wo surer a woods, which extends nearly the length of llic isiaud, in ita centre, except at one oriwo iatervala, where the action of the elements s<v m? to have swept it away. The hot sandy row! winds through a forest nulla dense For tlie const, in which the tail holly, the gnarled and twisted lire ?uk and the 'lark gre?i fig strangely com mmgln. On either aide Uie road wia skirled by low hushes of a character hitherto nntcnown to is, and hero and there the wild grape, entwining ita vines about the friendly trunk of some luiious tree, hung its thick clusters of unripe fruit over the shifting sand that marked our |>a'h. Once in the ihaile existence wan endurable, and through the hot atmosphere we pressed on towards the church, over a road, winding and twisting about hither and thither, apjiar< ully leading us back to our starting point, doiibttul whether it led anywhere. It was not the straight path, ".crtalnly, but faith finally carried us through. Alter a hot rod fatiguing walk of about a mile and a quarter from 2amp Wool, wo found tie1 church, tfter Inquiring the way >f every occupant of the Utile houses nestling quietly in the woods, and surrounded by Uie thick green foliage of the flg, that we would comc u|Kin, imd tliejr are more nunaiou than one would na.urully su|>i? se. lhe Islanders' L^iurrh is a small square editlco of wood, with a high, Sleep roof, small windows, all tiearii'g eviileuce of uge. lhe clapboards that encase its sld< s were not put on hist year, nor have they been treated to a soot of paint In long tm utlis. They were onco while, and gleamed pleasantly through the green foliage Of the sirrouudmg woods; but storms have swept over tlnm, ami summer rains and the snows of winter have fallen against them, and gradually tho glowing white became uiore subdued, and here and thcro throi gh Use fading c lor came suggestions of pine wood beneath, till now, alter years 01 service, the puint has wasted away and thu dingy brown of weathers talned piue stares the stranger in the lac >. The roof is weather worn and stained, but remains |ierfectly Impervious to Wtter. But we w ill pass the shaggy coatL-d saddle horses that crop the short, contemplative herbage about the neighboring trees to which they are attached, and enter tho meetinghouse, through a low, arrow door, and listen to tho smi vices of the day. As wo eijter we soe beforo us tho pulpit, raised abovo the :ongregation and reached by steps on either ?lde, from whieh umiiieuce tho (?us|>ol has been expounded for forty fin, It is a quaint old pulpit, OVMM with Mtd oilcloth, and bearing on tho front the legend, painted by lome unpractical but pious luuid, "1'ray without :e.islng," the letters of which roquiro a clear eye to decipher. The sides of tho pulpit are innocent of |>aint or other ornament, and it is easily seen that it is quite as ancient is the church. The benches that the attentive congregation sit upon aro of plain, unpuintod pine wood, w.irn smooth and brown. No celling orna men ted by Uio hand of the artist hides tho rafters and covering of the roof from the ? yi s of those below?at* v rod below, everything Is rude In tho church, but not the >? devout are the worshipped in this rough and unhandi >inc temple. All the residents who sit ab i.t mo are i .mble ami devoted in th.-ir religious exercises. You lo, lit look iu vain in many anelegaatiy furnished church, here Ilia (iospel is sparingly dealt out to tho rich alone, ' ir such a devout and 'tirlstian congregation as this Rietr resjiouscs. wore audible when the preacher touched ;he chord of sympathy and love, ami their voices scorned >i a me from the heart itself as thoy sang loudly, if not larmonle'isly, tho two verses rehearsal I y the pastor Yotii the one hymnbook of the' church. Whea the strains >1 some familiar Methodist time had dlcd%away, tho worthy pastor won hi read another couplet, which would be mug, and so ou through lhe hymn. It was a scetie I nhall not soon forget?tliat ril>!e old church, with its uonsregatlon of soldiers, in their giyr anlformV find the plain, honest fishermen who tilled it. Tho air was close and oppressive, and from without csme tho shrill voice* of the locusts, as they pi pod tholr midsummer lay from every tree in the woods. Now all w.is silent, ami again the long, drowsy hum "arose, and, growing louder and still louder, made the woods vocal with tho ring Kntnneighboring trees the tree toad an! tho katydid tilled the air With drowsy music, and the cricket chirped within the walls his part of tho chort.s.

Tho expedition which left for Ocracoko Inlet on Monday last returned this moiling. It consisted of sixty-live men from tho Naval Hrlgade, or Const Cnard, under command of IJeuten&nt Rowo, who woro placed on b< ard the Funny, and a launch from tho Pawueo, theentlroexpodttlon being under command of Lieutenant Kaslman, of tho 1'awueoLieutenant Maxwoll, of tho Pawueo, volunteered, and wot kod tho Sawyer rilled gun on the Fanny, and otherwise ronderml valualilo service during tho oporatl()ng on land. Tho Susquehanna and the Tempest?tho latter a small steaming, drawing too much water to go over tho swash and enter the Sound?ran down outside. They wore unable to approach nearer than threo miles of lie tcou Island, on winch Fort Ocracoke is Rltuated, and were therefore obliged to return, taking no further part In the affair. Tho Fanny ran down to within a mi'.e or more of the fort, and the launch was then aont ashore. Thu one my had desorted tho fort tho night following tho surrender of Fort Hatteraa, but wo learnod three or four days sinco that the Wiuslow. privateer, bad returned, and w >s about transiting the guns from tho fort to Newborn, to mount on tho batteries orectod, or In process of erection, on tho river banks, to defend that place. Pre^ous to tho arrival of the Winslow, the Albemarle, a quasi privateer, had visited Ocracoke and burned all tho gun carriages, navy style, ami destroyed such other pro|>orty us would bo likely t<> be useful to us when wo took poaaeualon of the fort. When tho Satiny arrived oif Portsmouth?a small village of five hundred inhabitants, a few miles to the south of lieacon Island?tho Winslow I a 1 boon gone about twelve hours, ami had succeeded la 0*1 lying away two guns from Portsmouth, where there was a battery. It seems she hail heard of our coming through some mysterious channel, ot which we ku.'.v nothing. At all events wo caught no privateer, *nd exIH'rioi.i o l no dltlluulty in effecting a landing. Monday and Tuesday were welt occupied In destroying or rendering useless the guns found In tho I'ort and at l'ortsmouth, ly blowing oil' their trunious by u solid oi,4il inch shot, ;iud the bursting of thi eight-inch guns. In this milliner four eight inch navy guns were rendered useless, and eighteen thirty twos (long sir.. ) wore effectually used up. On Tuesday ni,ht tho fort was set lire to, and on Wodnea 1^ morning fl was nearly destroyod, though the Humes in certain portions shot up fiercely. The fort was about twice tho sUo ?f Fort Hattorns, and much superior to It In every respect. It was In tho form of a square, with tho angles cut off sufficiently to mount an eight Inch gun in each. Tweuty-two long thirty-twos, mounted on ship's carriages, were ploc d on the curtains of thu work, en I artiste. Tho ramparts were nearly twenty-flvo feet thick at thu base, and about eighteen feet high, strongly built and well sodded. Within there was, in the centre, a large bombproof covering the magazine, which wis surrounded and protected by throe largo outer tanks, wlm h sorv ed as receptacles for the fresh water for the'gari Uoii as well. This bombproof, while woll ventilated, could palely contain a thousand men. Three others were placed near the curtains, more especially for the protection of the gunners in case of a hot bombardment. As I have before said, every part of tho win k was constructed in the most substantial and skilful manner. As wo had no men to spare to garrison it, and as it would be of little vnluo to us in any event, it was determined to destroy it by lire. Several flres wore kindled in the main and smaller hombproofs, and, a fresh wind fanning It, tho fort and the lighthouse near it were Boon in flames. At twelve o'clock the oonlUgration was at its height. Tho pine wood burned like tinder, and tho llames rolled lu waves over tho entire fort. Tho launch had .run out to the Fanny, which was anchored about three quarters of a mile from the fort, and tho night was passed there watching the ravages of tlie^lovastating element. The light of tho coiitlugrat ion was plainly S"en from our position at flatte n- , and I doubt not tho people on tho mainland could disciu u it. In tho morning the fire was still burniug fiercely, but as there was no possibility of the enemy returning to attempt to extinguish it. the Fanny, with laiiu h in tow, returned to Ilatteras. Tho destruction of the fort was complete, and tlmt, with tho other property, must h ivo occasioned a loss to tho rebels of more than $200,000. Tiiut ends Ocracoke. Tho people at Oerocoke and l'ortsmouth villages are Unionists, or at least a majority of them. They were glad to see the de|>arture of the rebel troops from their n^igh borhood, as they hal suffered a great deal from tho freo and oasy stylo which the rebol soldiers had appropriating whatever suited their fancy, without in many Instances leaving the worthless shiuplasters wiUi which they were abundantly supplied, as a nominal equivalent for coin. The soldiers pillaged and robbed most unmercifully fcitiffline out thus.' SUM 'lo.i of nntarlnlnin./ Union sentiments as proper victims to their rapacity. tho officers would give iii> satisfaction for these Injuries, anil all the poor people hail to (all ba< k on was a scanty stock of patience, which Hail before this dono them a r.-oo l turn. Hereafter wo hope to bo able to protect those isUnilcre frotn predatory incursion* from tho mainland. As long ax wc remain they will bo secure m life and property. I learned that soveral meetings have boon lwld recently in'llydo county, in which this |K>st is,ou tho mainland, gi>tt< 11 up and carried through by tho most wealthy and influential citizens of the county. Ono meeting was broken up by tho rebels, bit not until tho oitizens, who were present in considerable nuin be.s, had resolved that thoy would not offer any opposition to the ajMcoach of our troops ; tfcit they would not leave their homes on our arrival, but would remain and iieimit us to t*k< what was*necessary to sup|K?ri the force In tbo way of provisions, So., and would, iu every way, ?ave that ot bearing arms, aid us as tag as they might. The resolutions , a u"1 at tho other moo! fun* "were ?.f a like cKiO'arter. At one; the most rabid iwlic.l in tho county recanted his faith, made a g'noj Union speech, and voted heartily for the nsolutions. He is the m 'St Important man in tfto county, and his conversion will produce a great change In the sentiments of tho iwople throughout the county. Meetings of a similar charm-tor wrro to bo held throughout this and adjacent oovintn-s, and In a sle rt time tho ere-twill be felt all ove.r the State. At Newborn there is a strong and hea'thy Union feeling, smothered at present, but still bursting fnrth at times where least looked for. Of tho truth of th > above farlri I nm convinced, as 1 have conversod with rcliable men, who have seen and know those things.

Ib.t, hs 1 must reiterate, we mwl act promptly and at onco. Time Is precious, und we should follow up tho fruits of our first success by gaining others and more brilliant ones. We ought to have ten thoaaand men here bolvro Hie 1st of Oct -her, and before a month elapsed we c niH possess nnd occupy Beaufort, Newborn, WTaahiiigiu, hilI other important jioiuts in the State, and thus control Uio State itself.

JKUAT, SEPTEMBER 28, . THE FRIGHT AT NEW Oil LEANS. [From ilia Now OrleansPicayune, 12.] We have been informed by a gentleman who has Just arrived from Now York aad riilCidelphU, that the most unprecedented cxouiens are helug made in si! tho ship yards and docks of th "so two cities, for the tilting out of tho largest uaval expoditloti evor known m this country. Every carpeutcr who con be obtained Is emp'oyod, and men haul ships are ix lug allured into war ships, and all tho foundries are hard at work making and altering eugiuos for steam propellers of the largest size, as well as f?r small gunboats. It was openly talked of among the mechanics that this Immense tleot of war ships was destined for New Orliaus. ,lt would st.\m that tho pros* nt design of tho onemy Is U> eflbct a f usi,!?" aliurinti us on to take Washington city, thus drawing ail bur nutii forces into Virginia and leaving our Southern coast comparatively defenceless, while they make a grand demonstration on various portions of our coast, and forco their way to Now Orleans at all hazards.
