The steamer Powhatan arrlvod at the Navy Yard this morning, having run tbo blockade lost night. She has been at Ann?i?olia for soma tipie past, and Jeft there on Monday last. Sinco Tuesday sho has been with the flotilla on the Lower Potomac, and last niglit started up aud run pMt the rebel batteries In the darkness, although the enemy evidently heard her, and lights were run out and Sign ale made. The pilot of the Powhatan, who knows the river thoroughly, Pays that any vowel might have pnssed the rebel butteries lost night without incurring any risk from them. The steamer Baltimore la used to convey stores from Old Point to the flotilla below the rebel batteries, and was It Wado's Bay last night when the Powhatan come up. Four sloops, a Jersey schooner and a pungy came down pact the batteries yesterday, early in the afternoon. Tliey , with oue exception, took a coiirsc through the Swash channel, next the Maryland shore; and although the rebels wasted a largo quantity of ammunition in firing at them, nono of them were struck. One of the sloops, commanded by a Gecman, kept closo along tbc Virginia ?bore, running the gauntlet of all tbo rebel batteries, and escaped unharmed from the heavy Ore aimed at it. Thirty or forty shells were thrown from tho rebel bat teries over to our lntrenchmonts on the Maryland shore yesterday, but they did not impede the progress of th^ work. Sumo of our thirty-two pounders answered with three or four rounds, but it is not known whethor our ?bote reached. HUNG FROM TUB REBEL BATTERIES ON THE UPPER POTOMAC.

OUB BUDD'B FEBBY COBBEKTONDENCE. Uiuo'a Fkkhy, Md. , Oct. 30, 1M1. The Seetuien Sentiment in Mm% imni Tim BktllmmmUon of ,vy mjxVAutrt with 0*4 gmtkem HdbeUion- Lank of Pwt I 'atriaUtm ? Drprnittium CWwiUwl by Union Troupt in Maryland? A Asm JUM Mntttry Atom Skip. ping Point, 4c., <fc. I No luaxter what may bo saM to tbeoonUary, it is a fact ; that the secession sentiment Midi* to* remarkable. ex tent in Vary land. While (he State, a* a wit, la reckoned as loyal to the Union, it (a wonderful to see bow many of tho people sympathize with the Southern rebellion. Suns who are secessionists at heart profess to he Union people ; but when the test is applied, their true characters appear. Others are open and bold in givlag expression to their feelings. Appureutly, they do not desire to disguise their particular proclivities. Whilo much is said about tho loyalty of Maryland, there are portions of the State in which the spirit of tho rebellion is tho prevailing spirit among the people. I have heard and seen much of this disloyalty to the lTnK>n. For many miles back from tho eastern shore of tlie Potomac moat of the planters aro Southern sympathizers. But hore and there, like nn oasis in a desert, a Cnion man is found. The s cession spirit manifests itself in a thousand ways. The other day, stopping at a Uveru In Piscataway , I heard tho landlord scold lieeauee a Union soldier was permitted to replenish his canteen with water at tho bar. "I ouly let him have some water,'' said the young man attending. Greater grumbling was tho only response given by the landlord. But while it is a fact that many of the Marylanders have, naturally enough, Southern proclivities, it should be burnc In inind|that they all do not symgiatbire with the rebellion j?r tc. In this respect tlioy occupy a simi lar position to that occupied by thousands of people In the states which liave openly revolted. Their situation is easily explained. They have born born and reared un der the influence of the peculiar Institution. Many of the Southern |>eople Love t'irtured thmselves into ths belief that the ohjoct c>f tlie United Statin governnv-nt in conducting tlio war is to effect tho overthrow of tliat peculiar institution. In this we all know ltow ?ery much tlicy are mistaken. We know that its only object is to restore law aud order throughout tho Union. Hut, la boring under that hallucination, they support the South because thtty believe it Is tlio only menus of protecting themselves and saving the institution. Hence, while they greatly regret th-' threatened destruction of the Union, and would do much to prevent Its dissolution, they follow the first law of nature, and ntako all other considerations subordinate to that of self prot ?tlou. They fear the l<?s of their property ? their slaves. U is reully wonderful how much smc men's pockets have to do in forming tlieir religion, settling, or rather unset tling, their politics, and governing their general course of conduct through life. U often hapjiens Ulat when you reach a man's pocket it is theu tliat you touch his heart. This is confined to uo particular locality ; It is the same the world over. Among ourselves, in these trying times, it is notorious that contractors, for Instance, when they can do so, make many opportunities to Ueece the govern ment. It is ft pity that there is not more pure patriot ism ? East as well as West. North no less thaft South. 1 do not want to flnd.fuult unnecessarily, but there are some things which must be meutioued. I allude particu larly to tho conduct of most of the trooi* In tiomral Hooker's division on their recent march to their several encampments In this vicinity. In the first plate the marching reflected the greatest discredit ujion tlieir disci pline and obedience as soldiers. Many stragglers from mast of the regiments lagged behind. The Second regi ment, Excelsior Brigade, was so Irregular In marching that when the column came to Piscataway scarcely two hundred out of about eight hundred were at their post. Their commander, Colonel George B. Ilall, is now under arrest for the bad marching and subsequent reprehensible conduct of his men. All along the route dopredatkms of almost every description were committed. A few fence* wcro wantonly dostroyod. Poultry, pigs, sheep and cattle were killed without the couaeut of their owners, and either carried awfty or left w here they were shot. Upon the sides of the road over which the men marched jflaoes whore poultry has been plucked, indicated by the leathers, show something of what has been dons. After arriving at the camp similar outrages upon private pro perty were committed at first, but they have now been stopped. There can be no reasonable excuse for tho de predations which were thus oommitled. The olfesrs at the regiments aro very much to blame for the disgraes which the bad conduct of a few regiments irijght be calcu la; ni to bring ujwn our arms. Some regiments were worse than others. An honorable exception, and an examplo worthy of emulation by them all, was seen In Colonol Taylor's Pecond Kew York regi ment In General Slcklos' Excelsior Brigade. But other rogl meats of the brigade disgraced themselves. Many of the officers as well aa privates in both brigadus have not realized the responsibility of their position. They bavo forgotten to conduct themselves in accordance with that gentlemanly bearing, dignity and obedlente which should be characteristic of the true soldier. Tho Commanding General of this division Is grieved that the troops should have behavod so badly. He has issued strict orders calculated to prevent sirrii ar oocurrencos In future. Wherever it can be ascertained that private pro perty has boon Injured steps aioi taken to indemnify tlio ownorH. If any other outrages are committed the per petrators will be severoly punished. When abuses aro known to exist they should be corrected. Hence it is that I point those out. I nm happy to bo able to state, however, that they aro excepti ons to tho general rule, aud cauUM lie ?ppji<?4 the main body or the troops composing tho army of the Potomac. Several small beats and one large orie, llUcd with men, were yesterday Been crossing Qua&tlco crock. Wo have just discovered that the rebel? aro erecting a new battery 0Q tlv bkh bluffs west of t^uantico crc'-j^ utyJUV half mile above Shipping Point. It Is almost concealed by trees. Yesterday afternoon about a dozen shots came across from the batteries on Shipping Point and Kvansport. Three guns were tired lat<' Inst night, and three more have been simultaneously discharged tbis morning. As no vessels are in Sight , it is evident that the rebels are trying the rango of their guns.

Tho only news of any kind stirring about Is the Hag of truce that wont to-day from horc to Norfolk, with twenty discharged prisoners and two Indies. As. this wan the first flag that has left here since the concentration of our fleet at this point, some interest was fell in regard to its recap llon. In my letter of yesterday I gave tho order issued by General Wool, explaining tho object of the (lag of lruce, which was the tending of twenty discharged rebel prisoners and tho forwarding of two ladies to their friends. I also gave you tbo namos of tho prisoners. At eleven o'clock this morning Captain William J.?y, Aid-rte-Carop to General Wool, wont on board tho pro l>eilor Fanny Cadwallader, of Baltimore, accompanlod by his orderly, who hod a bag of letters in charge, which were Intended for our troops In the hand# of the rebels. By the kind permission of Mi^Jor Gcnaral Wool your correspondent was allowod to acoomi>any the flag; and after Deputy Provost Marshal Duval hod finished tbo examination of the Indies' trunks (taking therefrom several New York new*pa|iers), the propeller started on lis peaceful mission. We, very shortly after Waving the pier from the fort, arrlvtd op posite to Si'wall's Point, and we could plainly see the ret?el fortifications, which are anything else but despica ble. All along the shore, and at Kennu creek, foi mid a ble lntrencliments are erected, and the durk muzzles of heavy field pieces are staring the beholder In the face from the embrasures. ITie propeller was allowed to pro ceed to within pistol shot of Oraney Island ligluhont-e, when an Inslgulfkant little tugbxit, of about Uiu-en tons measurement, was s?ea coming towards us, and having hove to, tho Uig ran 'hi our larboard side. Whon I first beheld the rebel tug I thought it was a larce sized sail boat, as scarcely an> thing elss but the white flag could be desoriod. However, on coming under the how of our boat, I m.V. out her gigantic (?) proportions, and found her to bo tho Arrow, or Norfolk. At her stern the dirty rebel rng was Haunt ing, and I oould not help contrasting tho eiiuct between that and our glorious Htar Spangled 1 tanner, then proudly floating from the masthead of our propeller, looking fresh and defiantly pure. Bos idee that, the rebel flag ? ihe s'ars and bars ? measured about two feet by four, whereas our banner was a large sized steamer Hag, with the thirty -four ?tars clustering In the blue field. As soon as the robol tug was mad* fast to our boat Oap tain Jay saluted the rcbol nffleor on tha fotmor, a second lieutenant, with cold formality , handed to htm des|*tche? from tho department, ?n<i transferred the mall ha*, ladles, prisoners and trunk* to the tug, revolving lu return despatches add.cssod to lliyjor General John F_ Wool, and a l.uudlo of letters from Beoesala. Not half a dozen words wore spoken on either side, and no one Ku allowed to guy anything to the retain on hoard the tug. Tho Lieutenant tu cliarge of the tug boat was a yoxtifr man, n|>{?rently about twenty years of age, with a very pleading countanauce. lie was attired in a fatigue flannel coal, having Virginia Statu buttons on, a pair of mixed caaslineie i>ants, uud a black cap, trimmed with gold cord. At his side liurg a cavalry sabre, probably one of the many stolen by F.'oyd. He alia wore a pair of heavy buckskin gauutletv. On the deck of tho tug were about half u dozen robel sold tern, dressed in gray uniforms, all of whom api>eared to be in an advanced state of consumption, or starvation. CapUup Jay was invited to coine on board of the tug but he very politely refused the invitation, and having transacted his bustuess, gave orders to heave about aud return to the fort. According to the observation I had of the part of Seres ?a above described, it seems to me almost next to im possible to attack the points along tho coast without re sulting in a fearful loss of life. Facing the bay are any number of batteries, which, Judging from the tents be hind them, are sustained by a large force of iafoutrjr. Between Craney Island and tho creek probably fifty small boats were lying In the bay, engaged In Ashing? .thus proving the assertions made here, " that at Norfolk and vicinity the - main support of the rebels Is the thmy tribe." Before reaching ibe lighthouse, and near Sewell's Point, two yellow spars are observed, about 150 to 300 yards distance from the shore, which emanate from a sunken schooner, wreckod there to Impede navi gation. The dlfB-retwe of tho appearance of tlie country at that point , and that from Washington towards Munis hhs Junction, Is just us day is to night. Ttic former Is a level country , Interspersed w ith beautiful trees and rich landseaiie, while the Utter is uotlung but ugly hllla and waste barren soli. On the ram]iarts of tho formications of the reliefs numerous small flags are displayed. The largest ono I noticed all along the distance toCrsney Island was (touting on a brick house standing some dis tance hack of a cove opposite Criuiey Island. This housa is evidently the headquarters of some mogul In the rebel runks. I oils much as tho mission of Hie ll;ig of truce was one of peace, and not one of reconnoiseaaco. I did not think It proper to use a glass, hut whut is described uliove I beheld with the naked eye. Probably in a day or two the little rebel tug will pay us a visit, inasmuch us coin muntcsrtion by truce is again established between the fort and the rebel forces mi the other side. tieucrttl Wool issued a special order this morning, eomi plimenting the tio ijs reviewed by him and staff yester day in the highest terms, congratulating them on tho pro ficiency attained in so short a time. The schooner Eflbrt, of Philadelphia, leaves here to day to join tho Uect on the Southern coast, with letters, desjiatchos aud effects for those engaged in tho expedi tion. The steamer spaulduig, for Hatter as, has not yet gone. She has been hero now about ten days, having bi>oii delayed by some obstacles foreign to me, while the troops at liutteras Inlet are actually suffering from tho want of articles shipp.'d by her, which ought to liave reached there a week ago. The vessel is said to sail this evening, but no one will believo it until she has actually left the harbor. Every iKidy hero is on tip toe to hear the result of the expedition, where jCweiil. and with what iuco-ss it has met. Probably in a few da )B we shall know all tho par ticulars.

About noon on tho 23d tho bridge over the Osago was finished, and the army at once commenced its march.

The niglit was cold, and the ground in the morn ing was snow while with fro?t; but, so far as I could as.' certain, the troops did not suffer from the cold. Your cor respondent slept in a tent with seven others, most of thorn reporters, and found no inconvenience from the low temperature. Weather like the present is far better for a campaign in Missouri than the hot mouths of July and August. The days ore warm, but on no occasions uncom fortably so; there is usually a very gentle breeze stirring, but not often a high wind, and the haziness of the atmos pbcre, joined with the stillness that reigns in the natural elements, denotA that wo are in the midst of the Indian summer, though that delightful season docs not ia Mis souri attain such perfection as in Now Kngland. momme of the 24th camp wns broken at eight A M. , and a man h of twelve miles was made by eleven A. M. Ay wo wero wailing for several regiments that had been d talned at Syracuse and other point , we could not make long marches, and accordingly went into camp be fore noon. Tho camp was namod Camp Haskell, in hoi or of Captain Haskell, of Gene ral Fremont's staff, a gentleman who holds I be position of Director of Police, but whose duties appear to embraoo nearly all tho mi lingenient of the camp and the march. From daybreak until lat ? at night lie is in the saddlo, riding at full speed 1 from regimojit to regiment, or he can bo soen on foot among the tents and wagons of the camp, carefully noting tlio condition of everything around. On the morning after our departure from Warsaw a telegram was received announcing tl.e engagement near Kredcricktnn between Col. l'inmmcr and Jeff. Thompson, and tho defeat of the latter with a Iocs of tour gnus. (apt. H iskell role throughout the entire commaii.1, nnd road the d< s atch at the bead of each regiment. 11'u |iolicy of such a mea sure was at once upparint wlion we heard llio loud th'-ering at the termination of each reading, and aiter wurds g?w tlio elasticity of \J?<; step of the men ou the ma; eh. The four successes that nave lately obtained to the Onion arms ? tho taking of l/'Xington by Major White, the capture of a rebel baggage train by (ion. I.nne, the defeat of tho rebels at Wet Glaze and the baitle of Fred rick V n ? appear to indicate that the tables are turning, nnd that the Union arms are agaiu destined to be suc cessful. Ou our march on the 24th we i^sod through a small town In the northern purt of Hickory county, exulting In the name of Ouiucy. The village, a row o! about twenty frame and log hoi. Fes, had boom pai l lady deserted, many of the men residing there having joined tho rel>el army. A email hotel, with a modest sign proclaiming it to be the guincv House, which wns formerly kept as a station of the Overland Mail Company , bore evidences of having been visited by tbo reikis during some of their pilgrimng s. The proprietor was a gentleman from Sow York, and was robbed by Jackson of liis own and ih'siago company's horses, and had Ills house pillaged when the a- my marched through there in June last. In several other regrets tho town seemed to have suffered from tbo vtails of marauders, and the prostrate fence* and unroa|>eil tic Ma gave evidence of the nl. gluing effect of the rebellion in Missouri. Inn ing the day we noticod tho prairie on lire a mile or more from the road, and a lew of us determined to visit the hi ot. The dense growth of vegetation with which tho prairie was covered, and which had bocome dead with the advance of the season, was burning to the gronnd ovor a tract of a 'piart. r of a mile in width, ami sending out an enormous mass of smoke, that r< so ma cloud to. the height of several hundred loot. Too Are advanced slowly, threatening to burn some houses that lay in its track but was stopped by theeflbrts of the soldiers be fore it reached the buildings. The Hume was not by any means lerrillcully hot, and but lor the snu kc one would suffer but little inconvenience in riding through it. Camp Haskell was made within a tulle of General Sle gpl's c .nip, u here he ha I Wen for two days waiting for us and for the remainder of the army. General Siegel has shown much energy in pushing forward h.s command over sine* be started from Jefferson City. Everything about bis camp and around his division goes to prove that he is one of the best office! s in tin Fcrvice, and If he has anything like a fair chance at the enetny he will retrieve his Ill-fortune of Springfield.

In this connection, a- passage in the report of Goneral Thomas, the Adjutant General of the United Stat"* Ayiy. if worthy of remark. General Thomas accompanied the Secretary of War In his reccnt visit to Missouri and Ken tacky , and has just returned. In bis report he states that after visiting Louisville and taxlngton, and several othor Important points in Kentucky, he found that the Union sontiment in that State was not near so strong an had been represented; that "the young and active men in Kentucky were nearly all secessionists and bad joined the rebel ar mies there;*' "that although tho aged men wore Union ists, yet thity had not, ami would not, enroll themselves to engnge in conflict with their aona and relations. But few regiments of Union men can be raised in Kentucky;" that "the arms which tho present administration had sent to Kentucky ''?over 20,000 in number?1 "lia<l pro**) Into the possession of the Home Guards of Kentucky , and could not be recovered ; that t> ey refused to surrender them, expressing a desire to tliem in dcfc-nee of their homes; and that many of Uiem were already in tho hands of tho rebels." General Thomas continues: ? "Be fore wo left Kent <eky , wo were convinced that do largo bodies of Uuton troops tan he raised in that State, and that the defence of Kentucky mi:f)t devolve upon tho freo States of tho West and North west." And he states that the Confederate force in Kentucky is so strong that it will require 200,000 troops to cxpol them, and save State to the Union. "It wero a largo economy to save" Kentucky at that price; but if General Sherman cannot, some other general will he found who will make them "take less." But at whatever price, Kentucky will be preserved in tho Union. But to resume: ?

Mrlanclioly Sequel to the Mm Jersey Murder C-%sc? Suicide of One of the Sua* pec ted Partioe. The mystery which surrounds thn murder of Siglnmnnd Fellner is being gradually solved. On Friday, two woman, named Albert ina Klauio and Mrs. Marks, were arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the crime, end hardly had tho llrst mentioned prisoner boeu in the Fourteenth ward station Itousc a few hours when she committed suicide. The fsct Ivocame known to the Coroner yesterday morn ing, and on repairing to tho station house It was ascer tained that tho unfortunate woman liad hanged herself to tho Iron grating of her cell door. Tho deceased was evidently afraid to face tho investi gation now in progress, and determined to dostroy herself rathor than submit to tho slow ordeal of a trial. Tho police, in ith remarkable sagacity , traced out deceased and Mrs. MarkR at a time when It wiir thought impossible al most to discover any clue to their whereabouts. Tho next thing to do will bo to socure tho young Jew, ltatzkl, whose abscncc at this particular time, to say the least, is very suspicious. Coroner Jack man livid an Inquest upon tho body of doeeased yesterdny forenoon, when tho fol lowing testimony was elicited in relation to tho melan choly tragedy Patterson .lolly, being duly sworn, says: ? lam a po liceman ut Inch I'd to tho Fourteenth product; deccasjil was brought In this station house la?t evening by do tectivo Farley, for safe keeping; this morning, at ten minutes pnst six o'clock, I found hor suspended by a biuidkerchiof to the bars of her cell; when 1 found hor she had not been hanging long, as tho body was quite warm; life wns extinct, though; deceased was arrested on suspicion of murdering a tierinnu In New Jersey. Dr. John Beach test i lied to the cause of death, and stated that, from tho marks of \ iolenco on tho neck of deceased, ho had no doubt of hor having committed suicide by hanging. The evidence of those two witnesses concluded the in, vestigation. Tbo case was thereupon given to tho jury, who, after due deliberation, rendered a verdict of "Sui cide by banging. " ADDITIONAL PARTICtXAIlfl. I Siuce the conclusion of tho Coroner's iuquest our re | porter lias obtained the following additional particulars in relation to the affair: ? When detectives Tictuan and Farley visited Middle town, N. J., and examined tho corpse of the murdered man, they found ii|*>n IiIn person a cambric liandker cluef, marked "Albertiun Klaitm. " Thinking that this might alCiril them some clue to the whernnlioutH of the murderers, tliey preserved tho handkerchief, and imme diately on their arrival in tho city they com menced a vigorous soirch for Miss Flaum. After running all over the city for several (lays they succeeded in Ending tho object of their search at No. 46 Kant Hroadway. She was in company with her sister, Mrs. Marks, when the officers entered tin u;>art ment. The ? if tern were both arrested aud lirou^ht be fori1 Sergeant Young, at the detectives' ?

The prisouors woro then sent to tlie Fourteenth precinct station house , and locked up in separate colls. They ap peared quite chcorfal, iu?d no one dreami-d of s.eili a thing as either of Ihcm conic in plating sulcido. Daring Friday n.glit nothing transpired to cause any s in;noi.m In the minds of the pollen, and it win- nut until ' ix o'clock j ystoiiiay morning they discovered any causo for ] alarm.
