H< sides the steamboat Belvidere, returned disabled to Hampton Roads, Mappears by the above despatch, we And by the following from Philadelphia, Uiat Uie steam gunboat Florida has also returned to (hat, port rnirji<*U'UU,Nor. 6, 1861. The steam gunboat Florida, ono of tho naval expedi tion, has returned to the N'aVy Yard disabled. She left Hie expedition on Friday night, off Cape Fear. 8ho r?))orts that the fleet encountered a heavy gale soon after leaving Hampton, but It died out on Wednes * ^ day, aLd again rovived on Thursday from the southwest. On Thursday night the machinery of tho Florida was dis abled, but not seriously, and can ho repaired In three days, when she will rosume her voyage. She bad no troops on board. NEWS AT THIS PORT. Captain Marshall, of the bark Honduras, from Belize Honduras, arrived at this port yestorday morning, re-' ports that on the 2d lost., at daylight, between Cape Fear, N. C., and Charleston , 3. C., passed a largo fleet of naval vessels. A passenger on board tho same vessel has sor.t us the following communication on the samo subject:? TO TBB KDITOB OP THE NEW YORK HERALD. Bark Honduras, > i Or* Hkihiuhds, Tcksday mor.viwg, Nov. 6, 1861. J Since receiving a pilot I loarn that an expoditlon 'eft Hampton Roads sune days since, destination un known. Will tho following facts throw any light upon the subject?? Lift Friday night we had a severe galo of wind from tho southeast. On Saturday morning, at four A. M., wo wore signalled by a gunboat, which run across our slern. At daylight we found ourselves surrounded with gunboats, steamers and frigates. A new gunboat hailed us, but in return would not give her name. We aaw some flft"en vessels nearly ail hove to. They appeared 'o be about abroast of Savannah or Charleston. A few straggler* we met some hours later. Yours, respectfully , I>. B. PARSON. Had not the arrival of tho Uelvidere off Fortress Mon roe been followed so quickly by that of tho Monticello with Its gratifying tidings and by tho news brought to this port by the Honduras, the anxiety in the publfa mind as to tho safety of tho expedition would have becD intensified to a very painful degree. As it is, however, all such fears are now dirsipated, and the feeling of re lief thus produced will bo to ao extent corresponding with the late depression. We presume that the judgment of Lieutenant Bruno uhd r> s officers as In tho fleet entering Bull's Hay will bo found to be correct. Lieutenant Hra.no is an offi cer of great merit, and his namo ui already famtlia,. to the public iu com e< lion with a late brilliant achleft mont of his in < hii .imicomlco creek.
