This battery consists mostly of Parrott rifled ca mon mil forms jart of Ihu noted Sherman battery, which tho rebel have *" often bo.-.' t ed of having captured. One of the mo*t important officers w ith tho ex; o iition is Colonel Chiis. 0. lion telle, ot tho L'ni.e 1 El tUs Coast Survey.

The trar?i*>rig will move in tliree ri'limms, aad in rear of liie main body of (he squa iron. The tr uin|virU belonging to the First brigade will com pose i ho right rolnmn, lliose of the Second bigade and Third Khode Island regiment the centre, and those of the Third brigade aud the battalion of volunteer Engineers the left column. Kach vessel will retain It* order in column, and the columns will move m |iarallel linen equidistant, regulat ing from the right. The nail vessels and other transport*, in adequate ui tlio task of tailing with the fleet, will be towed by S'n'h steamers as the Chief (Juartormaster m?v designate. Flag Officer Itupout, m co^rriii^n with the laud forces, has kindly m.viesitcb'an arrangement of his (leot us will secure the transports from unnect asary diffu sion, and all senior olllcei g on transports and mas ters of vessels will enter Into the spirit of, and con form to these arrangements, a plan of which will be duly given. II. The (ieneral commanding announces to the Expedi tionary Corps that it is intended to make descent on th" enemy's coist, and probably under cl ctimstanoes which will demand the utmost vigilance, coolnosa and intre pedity on the part of every ofltoer and man of hiBcom mand. In consideration of the (nstnessand holiness of our | cause, of the ardeut patriotism which has promoted the virtuous un I industrious cil mens of our laud to lly to their country's standard in the moment of her peril, ho most comldently believes thai he will be effectually and efficiently supported in his cl'orts to overthrow u zealous, active and wily toe, whose cause is uuh ily ami principles untenable. III. On the approach of the transports to the place of dlsumhai katlon , each b'igade commander will anchor his transports as near eaeh other as practicable, and will at the p oper lime sii|>eriutend Die disembarkation of his brigade. The surf boats, with other means for disem barkation on board, are believed to he capable of land ing at ouce from three to lour thousand wen. The surf boats aro of different sizes. Two of the largest may take the officer* and men of a company of one hundred men; two of the next size s eompauy of seventy men. nnd soon in proportion. The other means of Iranspo tat Ion may lake the remainder of a brigade, with probably one or two sections of artillery. IV. The dlsemnakmowt will be made In three lines. The (lrst line will be the brigade of Gon. Wright, flanked by two sections of Hamilton's ballerv and aoconmauied by the of regular sappers and miners and two companies of Serreil-s Volunteer Engineers, with a suffi cient supply of intrenching tool* and sand bag*. The s cond line will be the brigade of tieneral Stevens, and II necessary accompanied by a secti' U of Hamilton's battery and two piece*, to bo manned by a company of the Third Rhode l.daul regiment. The reserve w ill be composed of tieneral Vielie's brigade, the remaluing portions of Serrell's Volunteer Engineers and the Third Rhode Island regiment, and will be disposed of according to circumstances. V. The l?oats of not only each company , but of each re giment and brigade will land abreast as far us practica ble, and in th? order of battle. The utmost effort ?yilf be made to effect the landing Id that order. Should it be found Imptaetlcable to land jmiodiitely from the lighter!1 , H'etj. llm ?urr ^ts, wlien emptied, wjjl luiraedi it. ly proceed to the rapid landing of the men from the lighters, aud as so >n as the whole line is lauded all tho bo.its will return, and bring forward in lite manner the troops of the second Hue. and so with the reserve. VI. The general ' Ulcers and commanders of battalions, fee., will be furnished in tiino with tl.e plan of doscont and tho particular order of battle. It is pr"bable that tho fl:st line will bavo to conquer tbe ground on which to es'aldish itself, and if opposed by greatly superior num bers. to mana>uver,and |>orliaps to momentarily Intrench. It' not seriously epposed, the llrst line, after overcoming Immediate ditl.cult ice , will continue to drive back the oucmy. but will uot venture beyond supporting distance fr-mthe shore before tho landing of the general com manding or without Ids special orders. VII. Tho commanding officer of the naval squadron has kndly consented to furnish three hundred sailors to asuist In launching aud manning the surf boats, and ho appeals to the patriotism of the masters. mnt<-? an<l sailors of tho several transports to furnish an additional number of coxswains and oarsmen. Auv deficiency of oarsmen or surf boats will be supplied fiom fhe on board of these res|x ctively, so that each boat when ready may ho rapidly rotted asln r?. Tlio soldiers' oarsmen wilt land and firm with their platoons. VIII. The general ai d Held officers, with their respec tive staffs, will endeavor to obtain landing boats for themselves, with the necessary coxswains and oarsmen from tho transport* and other hired vessels of the fleet. IX. The sc: lor officer of the troops on board each trans port! will arrange with tho master for voluntary helps of this kind which maybe noeded andean be given, and will make a special report t<> these headquarters, as early as pracltaibie, of the assistance thus rendered.

Few of our navigators have ever entered the waters of Bull 'a Pay , because, though extending for some ten or twelve miles from north to north, by about half that dis tance in width, there aro no towns or settlements along its inter'or coast, and nothing to attract commercial ves sels. ]t is situated some twenty throe miles northeast of Charleston, and Is connected with that harbor by nume roup creeks, it is eusy of approach from the fcb for ves s 'la of less than fifteen feet dra-ght, affords very good ancliornge, and can be easily put iu a stato of complete d fence. At high tide tho liar has fifteen feet of water 1 one of the objects of the expedition be ? as wc have heretofore stated and still believe? to provide havens for our vessels and winter quarters for our troops in those Southern latitudes, this point hrtg been well selected. Tho bay is stndfled with islands, some of which ? parti cularly Bull's Island? can be made available lor defensive purposes. We have no doubt that formidable intrench ments are already in course of erection by our troops jh the nwt suitable points. It wa* for such purposes that the fleet took with it such an immeuso amount of lumber, brick and other building material, tools, mechanics and laborers. It must not bo supposed that the occupation or this point at the present time indicates an Immcdhte land movement upon Charleston. VVe cio not believe that any such movement Is contemplated. Besides, tho fact that jhe division of tho army under General Sherman is not of numerical force sufficient to warrant any assumption of the kind, tho nature of the land bordoring Bull's Bay would forbid it. For miles from the coast stretches inward an impenetrable morass euphoniously and not Inappropriately designated Holl Hole Swamp. There is not a road or path through it, nor, perhaps, is a pathway practicable. Tho creeks that wind from the bay in tho diroction of Charleston might be navigated by small gun beats, but wo do not believe that such a de sign is contemplated. Tho only real object of our tnking possession of tho biy is, wo imagine, simply to constitute a rendezvous for our vessels, and winter quarters for our troops, In connection with similar establishment* yet to bo made farther south ? as, for instance, at Port Royal, which is, wo presume, the next point to be occupied. The map which we publish to day will enable our read ers to understand the drift and importance of these south ward movements. The entrance to Bull's Bay is flanked on its right by a "wi-xoon island, and on tne int by Bull's Island. The latter is some live or six miles In length, snd is well calcnlated for alarge military encamp ment. It is here, particularly, that wo looked for the erection of strong fortifications. Thu marshy nature of the S"il adjacent to the bay, while it would interfere with any land movement of our tr?,pf_if such waro contcmplatoU?wlll kIso prevent their being interrupted In the erection of their Intrench ments by any formidable force of tho rebels. So that what nti^iii at fir,-t sij;lit appear to be a disadvantage, Will be, iu reality , an advantage to us. SKETf 11 OF PORT ROYAL AND BEAUFORT. ) Many persons are inclined to boikvo that the <lr*t ! destination of the licct will prove to have been the har- | bor of lieaufort of Port royi?l,or at all events, thit this place, if not the tlrst , wi.t prove to be tlie second point to which the expedition will pay its respects. It is the | l.ftrb'.r on tho .South Carolina const, una yet, like Dull i Day. it is b .it little frequented. l or L Royal is tlftc 'U mil- s north ist from the entrance of .Suvaunnh rivor, and ia- perhaps thu m >sl Intp irintt piiint on the Atlantic count ? f all the Southoi 11 Status which border upon that sua, for the purpose of * iioxtila visit. The cntran.-o t < 1'ort Royal is tho bist channcl for .hips throuBU t':o b u s in the whole railed '? f p. i ts below Xorlollc, and the harbor Is sul ieDt to float thu wholo expeditionary flecl. Its accessibility, its capaciousness, and its contlg lty to Charleston and Suva.nah, c*. sj it to bo looked n|vn with much fen r and by iho cltiaeni of .Jo:ith I'aMiun and Georgia, fir they? cor rcclly or not remains to b ? seea? have sMccte l it us tho icuilezvous of the esped i"i.a;y lift. Tho town of l.eai'fort ft ui'lR ?a the west bank of Port Royal river, ar.'l to'.ert by rail wi'h a'l tho principal towns an! v'. s hi the S.>u' ho<*u and Southwestern Slates. . s w icntVii" i- '? of a licet on 1'ort Royal, and tho oo. tian-j ?>? wcajfoit, i I peculiarly <*nDgrrin.i> to tho ruin-'.* of th<v"? e i s Port Royal wis the origtriM peist of set''. infnt of South Car< liua in 1670, and its irrea! superiority as an entrance anil harbor ha.-t alwaj ? be^u acknowledged. V. hy , IndScd, it becamj subordinate u> Charleston aud Savannah does not clearly ap|>eur, uukws tl was for the reason that it was not central to South Carol in/1, it occupy ing ttio southern extremity of the State, and wai to? near to tlic only good harbor of Goorgift for commerce. A glance at the map w ill show that a inoro vulnerable spot lor striking at the rebels could not bo seleclod. Oil either hand lie Georgia and South Carolina, with their capitals, Charles tuu aud Savannah, the hotbeds of scoes. sion. The communication between the cities would be the flrst to bo seized, the d. stance between iho two cities being 104 miles, aud a force moving up the water* from Ikuufort would strike the road at Pocoluiegu, Ufty live mile* from Charleston an I forty -time from Savannah, by which mean* Charleston or Savannah could 1>o I ikeu on the rear. Tho forts ami batteries of both harbors would thus be rendered uscloss as defences to thoir respective cities. Steering for I'ort Royal harbor, tho course after taking bearings is duo west for St. Michael's lb-ad, within tlftnen leapues of which will bo found from twenty to twenty. Ave fathoms water. l.aud is made In clear weather at a distance of six leagues, in twelve fathoms water. I'ort Royal entrance Is know u by a small grove of tre< s which stand on the west ride of it, aud tower above all the other trees like a high crowued hat; hence the grove is called the llat of I'ort Koya). The entrance to Port Royal is be tween two Immense breakers ? one ou tho north called Coles' Care, the other on the southward called Martin's Industry, Uetwcen these two breakers the channel is a mile wide. The town of Ikaufort Is built on the west bank of tho Port Royal river, a narrow branch of the ocean . llfty miles northeast of .Savannah and Ufty Ave southwest of Charleston. Tt.o town Is old, with less than a thou sand inhabitant*, and of far less importance in trade now than Its r.ame-ako of N'orth Carolina. It is, nevertheless, within easy distance of both Charleston and Savannah, and but ten miles from the railroad which connects those cities. Ituaiifort is situated in (lie district of the snme nnme, one of the most populous and fertile In tho whole Stato^ In 1850 this district produced more rice uiul more sweet potatoes than any oilier county in the United States, or district withiu the State. It ebiuf staple! are cotton, rice, Indian corn and swoet potatoes. The Savannah river runs ?long its border, uud it navigable for steamboats. There Is no strong jiosition near tho town capable of rebi'l occupation or defence, and therefore tho movement of our forces on either Charleston or Savaunah would be easy from this point should the reduction of t|io?e places J>e on the programme of Shorman's and Pupont'g coming ' operation/. ? Wluither this poiut has been selected or not for the theatre of action wo cannot yet say, but it is open to our vessel, i at any time; for the rebels have no vesse's-of war to send there, and no soldiers to stwrc to throw up defences aud garrison it. It would take a great number of troops to moke both Savannah and Beaufort safe against a powerful fleet, which could operate against either alternately, or, by dividing its force, attack both simultaneously. THE EFFECT OF THE EXPEDITION. N"o matter what inky be tho design of the military and navul commanders who are in charge of the expedition) the occupation of BtiH's Hay cannot fall to produce in tense alarm at Charleston and along the whole Southern coast, and cause nn immense drain upon the rebel army in Virginia (or the purpose of defending tho sea coast* Tliey will see in this movement tho first step towards au attack upon Charleston, and we may therefore expect ? hurried march southward of at least fifty thou sand men to guard that city. When similar demon strations are made at Tort Royal, Beaufort, Brunswick Mobile and New orleaus, the rebel army of the Potomac must soon be disorganized. Whether that be so or not, footholds for the national forces will b? obtained all along tho Southern coast, and probably ? cotton port or two may bo thrown open to commerce, and from these points the Influence, power aud authority of the republic wiU gradually be extended over the whole region now cursed, ?mpovershed and dev*?t?ted by this unnatural rebellion. THE LATEST PARTICULARS. ???? Htunn ? ? iiu?. ?, 1901. I We have no part iciilars of the arrival of tho (Wt at I Hull's Bay, other than tlvoso you have received. The Monticoll'j arrived ot Fortress Monroe just before the boat left for Baltimoro, and thero was no tlmo to communicate with the government. The actual destination of the fx- i poditiou h?s not yet been divulged here. The Navy Department lias received no news except brought by the Florida to Philadelphia, and the Belvi dt-re and Monticello to Fortress Monroe ; but thU is am ply sufT.cient to remove all apprehensions an to the safe ty of the fleet from the late storm, and to enconrage ex pectations of the brilliant succe; ? of the enterprise. The vessels that have returned aro comparatively nu" (mportant to the expedition. Tlie tv>xt intelligence ex pectod is of the landing of the troop*. THE RKTUHN OF TUB FLORIDA? THE FLEET IN THE OALE. Phiuhklmiu, Nov. 8, 1861 . Tho sidewheel steamer riorida, attached to the great expedition, roached the >'nvy Yard at noon to-day. The Florida was fitted out in New York, !?? of 1,280 ton* ? burthen and n?w ten years old. She left Fortress Monroe

on Tuesday last with the flotilla, and sailed southward x-> far as Cape Fear. When off Cape Fear, owing to ? rough sea and tho dorangenient of lier machinery, she was com pelled to put back. The accident occurred on Friday last, the 2d inst. Tlie fleet at that time had passed Capo Fe:ir, being two leagues from shore, and while the wur vessels kept close together, tho transports and smaller vessel 3 were much scattered. A number of the latter were out of siffht , among them the Matanzas, the Oriental and the WioQetd Scott. As far as Captain Coldsboroagh could determine, the (ships of wur were making directly south west ward for Georgetown on I ranee, at Win yaw bay, or. perhaps, for Hull's buy, as both lay in tho same line. No trouble appeared among the main fleet, anil thoy observed a steady course southward, signalizing to the /lagtdilp Wabash during the night time. A few vessels pasted the floet coming northward. Among them two or three at tached to tho blockading squadron. Frequently, during tho storm, the men on board Che Florida could hear the drums on the war vessels beating, and the same sounds were heard after tho lights of tho fleet had Anally disappeared. Captain (ioldeborougb does not beliove that more than thne or four of the transports have parted convoy. The machinery of tho Florida was not in tiic "umi o-"'1!"on when sho left Hampton Roads, and therefore easily liabio to derangement. She will sail apainon Friday, and will bo repaired to morrow. All Tuesday night the galo was pretty high, with plenty of rain . O.i Wednesday it abated but recommenced on Thurs day, coming from the southeastward aiid blowing tb0 ships in toward chore. Toward evening it changed to u t,o ;tliei*i gate- I?*a powerful, and on Friday had almost entirely eeasod.

Considerable surprise and sumo indiguallou are maul rested h?r? at the delay In breaking up the rebel block ade of the Potomac. Although officers and men of the Hot ilia have been eager for action, they huvo beou required to lay quietly at anchor and observe the count ruction of buttery after battory, until final ly the fleet wag driven part up ami part down the rtvor. Tho only batteries that aro really of consequence are tho otio at Chopewamsio, at tho lower cnd; and the one at Shipping Poiut, at tho upper end of the blockade. At the former point tho width of the river ia only a mile and a half, and at the httor a mile and a quarter. If, Instead of using ten pound Parrot gtu s, tho armaments of tho upper and lower portions of tho tleot were transferred to land batteries at Posoy's llUl, buck of Hudd's Kerry, opposite to Shipping Point, and to Smith'* Point, opposite Chopowamsio, and worked by the crews of the licet, the rebels could bo speedily driven fruit tlh ir batteries, and tho obstructions to the navigation of the river effectually removed. The rebels uho almost exclusively percussion shells, which seldom hurst at. the proper poiut, if at all. They are evidently deficient in time fuses for ordinary shells; and the heavy nuns of tho fleet, or some of tho uino or eleven Inch llahlrren guns, or long thirty two pounders new lying at tho Navy Yard, used iu shore batteries, fir ing the common shell and shrapnel arming them, would in a tew hours render tlio batteries, now so formldublo to our shipping, completely untenable. It is undert.t >od to be the determination of government that the river i-hall ho opened within a few days, and that the rebels shall bo dislodged from their batteries.
