This spirit, if generally diffused , would Ignoro all usefulness and destroy all prosiwcts of successful operations. Comnuuidors should at once briug to their official notioo all cases of this nature, and if shame will not bring tho offenders to a fcese of euty, punishment must bo resorted to. II. All horses and wagons that tbo Chief Quartermaster decides cannot bo taken ou tbe transports will bo traus I erred t.? the Quartermaster of tbe Post, with tho requi site invoices. By order, Brigadier Genoral T. W. SIIERMAN. Loiris H. Pklouzb, Captain Fifteenth Infantry , Acting Assistant Adjutant Gonoral. TOE OllDUR OK BAILING. The transports aro to move hi thrco columns, and in roar of the main body of tho squadron. Tim transjiortB belonging to tho First lirigmlo aro to compose tlut right column; thueo of the Second brigade and Third Rhode Island regiment the con tra, und those of the Third brigade and tho battalion of volunteer Engineers the left colnmn. Each vessel ia to retain its ordor in column, and tho columns will move 'n parallel linea equidistant, regulating from tiio right. The sail vessels and other transports, inadequate to tho task of sailing with the floet, are to bo towert by each steamers as the Chief Quartermasters may deiguitto. Tlio Expeditionary Corps Is intended In make descent on tho enemy's coast, and (ratably under circum stances which will demand tile utmost vigilance, coolness and intrepidity ou the part of every officer and man of his command; and tho Onnerai declares liis belief that in consideration of the justness and holl no s of tho ('juts-', of tho ardent patriotism which has prompted the virtuous and Industrious citieuna tho land to fiy to their country's standard in ttio mutuant of t her |x-ril, ho will bo offectuolly and efficiently supported ?n ins offorts to overthrow a ecalous, notivo and wily foo, whose cause is unholy and principles untenable. On tho approach of the transports to the place of disembarkation, oath brigade commander Is directed to anchor liis trans ports as ueer oach other as practicable, and to super in. tend the disembarkation of his brigade. The surf heats with other moans for disembarkation on board are bHiov" ed to be capable of lauding at once frotn throo to fonr thousand meu. Tho surf boats are uf different sizes; two of tho largost may take tho ufllcera and men of a company of one hundred men; two of the next size u oompany of seventy inon, arid so on in proportion. Tho other means of transiurtation may take the remainder of a brigade with probably one or two sections of flo'.d artillery. Tho disenibailc mont is to be made in three linos; tho flint ltuo will lie the brigade of Gen. Wright, Hanked by two sec tions of Hamilton's battery and accompanied by the squad of regular Bappcrs and miners and two com panies of Serrell'a Volunteer Engineers, with a suffi cient supply of intr nching toote and sand bags. The second line will be tho brigade of General Stevens, and if accessary aucotnpaniod by a station of Hamilton's battery and tvro pieces, to be miuined by a oomjiany of the Third Rhode Island regiment. Tho reserve will be composed of General Vloier*s brigade, the remaining portions of Sor rail's Volunteer Engineers and tho Tliird Rhode Island regiment, and wttl lie disposed of accord" ing to circumstances. The boats of not only each oompa' uy. but of etrh regiment and brigade will land abreast as Tar as practicable, and In tho order of battle. Th i utmost effort will be rondo to effect tho lauding >n 'hat ordor. Should It be found hnpracticablo to land immediately from the lighters, there tho surf bik.tB, when em|-tiod, will immediately proceed to tho rapid landing of tho men from tho lighters, and at> soou us the whole line is landed all tho lioats will return, and briug forward in like manner tho troojis of tho second line, and so with i he reserve. Tlie general rtficers and commanders of battalions, fcc., will bo furnished in timo with the plan of descent and the particular or der of battle. Tho General thinks it probable that the first line will have to conquer tho ground on which to establish Itself, and if opposed by greatly superior num bers, to manoeuver, and perhaps to momentarily entrench. H' not serioe.sly opiKised, thot first line, after overcoming immediate difficulties, is to continue to drtve back tho enemy, but will not venture beyond supporting distance from the shoro before tho landing of the general com manding or without Ills special orders. Throe hundrod saiiors aro to bo furnished to assist In launching and manning the sorfboats, and any deficiency of oarstnen in surfboats is to be supplied from the platoons on board of tlieso respectively, so that each boat when ready may he rapidly rowed The soldiers' oarsmen will land and form with their platoons. Tho sick and non-effective men aro to remain on board the several transports until provision can be mudo for tlie-m tu shore. The non-effectives wBl bo oh pec tally charp 'd with the ctire of those tinder directions to be left by thu respective medical officcre. Medical officers, ex cepting one from each brigade, to bo designated by tho respective bflgado commanders, aro to land wt'h tho troops.

DUPONT. Oommodoro Samuel F. Dupont, the commander of lite naval forces of this great expedition, is a native of the State of Now Jersey, but receivort his appointment into tho navy from the 3t?to of Delaware, of wtrlch ho is a citizen. An original entry into the scrvico of his country was on tho ItHh of December, 1815; be has been, there, fbro, nearly forty-sis years iu the service, and his forty sixth anniversary may bring him more glory and raiao him higher in tho estimation of the people, both at homo and abroad, than all the previous ones. So, if the present expedition is successful, thorn cannot be tOD muotLfiud in praiso of those having command. Up ? the liroseot time Oommodoro Dupont has spenr nearly twenty-two years on sea, olfcht and a half years in active duty on shitfe, and the balimco of Ills time has been unemployed. His present commission boars date September 14, 1868. Ho was last at soa In May , 1869, and staco that time he has been commandant of the Navy Yard at Philadelphia, whore his kindness of manner, together with his strict discipline, won for him many rr lends. Among the important positions that Com . modore Dupont has filled since ho hus been iu tho navy are tho following ? In June, 1836v Commodore Dupont? thon Lieutenant ? commanded tho Warren, no\v the storcsliip stationed at ! Panama, N. O. , that was attached to tht squadron of ' Commodore A. J. Dallas, cruising in tho West Indies. In December, 1843, he aommandad the United States brig Porry, while on tho way to Bio de Janeiro, bound to the Wost Indies-. In October, 1846, he also commanded the frigate Con gress. She wns at that time flagship of Com modore Robert P. Stockton, and was carrying out Mr. Ten Kyck, United Statue Commissioner to the Sandwich Islands, and alsckMr. Surretf, United States CCmsul to the Sandwich Island*'. In July, 1846, be was commandeaof the sloop-of-war the time attache* to the squad ron of Commodores W. B. Shubrick, and Thomas A. C. Jones, in the Pacific. Ho held other important posts, but those are the only onse that we can recall to our memory, at the present time. His late oommand at the Philadel phia Navy Yard is of course known to all, and his presont one, the ontlro charge of the immense fleet that lias left Hampton Roads, he has held but a short time, having been appointed to the Wabash within a very ftw weeks. Tho choice made by the department appears to give uni versal satisfaction, and some of the oldest and most ex perienced officers In the navy speak of the selection in the highest terms, and expressing the sentiment that we have "the right man in the rigbt place." Commodore Dupont is a man a little past what is usually termed tho prime of life, although possessed of all thB vigor, bodily strength and ambition that usually charac terize younger men, and those qualities, Joined to hfa experience, pronounco himto be the man we need. In his personal appearance the Commodore Is a person that would 'at once attract attention, having all the easy graco of a finished gentleman together with a commanding look that betokens perseverance and a determination to suc cessfully carry out any undertaking that ho may be engaged in. Ho is just the man to command respect and to deserve it. There is no doubt but that ho will guide the expedition with wifely to its destination, and return crowned with succcsx COMMANDER DAVIS.

Somo or the host Atlantic and 1'acino propeller steamer -> have b ou purchased or cliartor? d by the gonernmentatu orm part of the transport fleet, having boon strengthened aud heavily armed. Among them aro tlio following ? STEAMSHIP VANUEHBIliT. This vessel Is well known to our citlzous nsouo of tho finest vessel. ihat ever left the port of New York.
