No further intelligence concerning the great naval aud military expedition than that which ap peared in our columns yesterday, had been re ceived up to a late hour last night. That they escaped the dangers of ttoffulo and made good a harborage in a secure p?eition is, however, un questionable. The lines of our army on the Potomac were un disturbed yesterday. A new rebel battery at Aquia crcek was opened yesterday, a few hundred yards north of the old ono, from which soino shells wero thrown with the intention of trying the range. (Ireat activity was also observable at Mathias Point. It is said that the rebels have between thirty and forty thousand men at Shipping Point. Prom Fortress Monroe the news is that the ateamer 8. P. Spnulding has just returned from Ilatter as Inlet, bringing Colonel Hawkins, who proceeds to Washington in a special boat upon business connected with his post. The storm at Hattcras Inlet was very severe, and the recent high tides have completely overflown the space outside the fort ; and, as a new channel is forming between the forts, it is apprehended that they may become untenable. About a quarter of the cloth ing for the Twentieth Indiana regiment had been landed from the S. P. SpauNling on Friday night, when the gale came on with tremendous severity and it was wa-hed away, together with some other stores. Five rebel gunboats came near the Inlet on Sunday, but retired alter firing a couple of gnus. It is presumed that they thought the Ilelvidere, which just then hove in sight on her return from the naval expedition, was the advance of the hos tile fleet. Col. Hawkins, who commands at llatteras, nr- I rived in Washington yesterday, and represented I tho necessity of cither protecting their position from such heavy gales as that of Friday and Satur day, or removing the trivojis to Fortress Monro*'. It appears that in addition to tho destruction of government stores above mentioned, four stntries of the Twentieth Indiana regiment were drowned In the breakers daring the gale. We learn on the Authority of a Baltimore paper that eleven thou sand troops ore to be sent South from Annapolis When the transports of the uuvnl expedition re turn. Our news from Missouri sta-te* that another tattle on the site of the Wilson's creek afl.ur i.s Imminent. It was said on good ar.tliority that General Price, with 25,000 rel < Is, was at Cassvillc On Thursday last, and that General McCulloch, frith 10,000 men, was at a poii.t ten miles in advance of him. Both of them ?erc snp fkosed to be marching on Springfield. Large feinforcementB from the neighboring coun ties of Jasper and Green were reported to bo joining the rebel anr.y. General Sturgis, General fope and <irnerul Tftiie. with their Union force*, had reached Springfield, and General MrKinstry trae preparing to advance with a body of cavalry to make a reconnoissance. J General Fremont and staff left that place for 9t. Louis on Monday last. His body guard accom |>aoicd him. Before leaving he had a long inter View with General Hunter, and explained to him all be knew of the position of the enemy and the plan fcf battle agreed upon by him and his generals of fliviaion in council of war the night previous. If any of Fremont's stall remained to participate ia the approaching battle. TUTS NEWH. . The returns of the Statu election come In very fclowly. We have not yet received enough, to tell ftrhetlier Bruce or Wright ia elected Canal Com tnissioner. Probably the latter will prove to be the successful candidate. Of the members of the Bute Senate eighteen have been elected on Union fcnd republican tickets, two on Union and demo cratic, nine as straight republicans, two aB straight democrats; but every one sustains the administra tion in the war. It seems that Judges Hoffman ftsd Woodruff have been both defeated for Superior teourt, in this city, and Monelland Barbonr elected, lynch is Sheriff, Genet County Clerk, Oakey Hall District Attorney, and Purdy Supervisor. The election in Maryland yesterday passed off flnietly, and resulted in the success of the Union pkAtl h u Uuuavwe wyority, tLua aguia dt?vu strntlng at the ballot box the loyalty of the peWio ? of that State to tho Union and tho constitution. At the State eleotion in Wisconsin on Tuesday tho entire republican St.ite ticket was elected by a large majority. The election in Now Jersey on Tuesday resulted in a gain of democratic members of the Legisla I ture. The Legislature will have a deculod demo cratic majority. Tho schooner Virginia Price, Capt.. Eldridge, ar. rived at this port yesterday from St. Thomas, with advices to tho 25t!i ultimo. Captain El dridgo reports that six rebel Commissioners passed through St. Thomas from Europe for Cuba. Ft*pr United States steamers wore cruising in tho Caribbean Sea. Capt. EMridge enw no pri vateers 011 tho passage out or h<*ra*, and suggests that HritfaJi vessels see so many ia order to a fleet freights In American vessels. When Mayor General Fremont I?ft Springfield his body gimid also left with him. This guard was composed of th en just lit for and likdy to engage in1 such a cwnhat ns that which has been recently anruMincod, f^l^innlly this body guarif was com post' of threS' IdTiidred picked men, and, H is Hftid, better ones r??ver*?wcnt into a battle.

Improved Aspect of Oar HtlaMoni with Kitgland and the Maritime foweri of Rurope. It was the unquestionable intention of tlio government of Greut Britain, at tbo commence ment of the rebellion; of the Southern States, to seize upon the opportunity thus afforded, to ?rtrike a death blow at the onward progress of ' out North American nationality, and, by co.'* nifinnr at the division of the United States into' two 91* more independent republics, to prevent the possibility of its over rfrulling the empire of Great Britain over the ocean. Judging by the imbecility of President Btmhanan's admiuis tration, and the impunity witll which the Gulf States ware permitted, not only to secede, but to seize upon federal fortresses, and confiscate the proper!/ of the federal government, nearly every accredited foreign minister at Washing ton had arrive'! at the conclusion that the death kuell of demooratic institutions on* this conti nent had been rwsnded, and that the country would henceforth cease to be a first class Power in tho world. Tho Queen's proclama tion, which recognized the Confederate States as belligerents, wu? but the forerunner of speeches by Lord! Palmerston and Lord John Ilnssell, int which it was openly asserted that the Unitod States had fallen from its high posi tion, and, in spite of the hollow affectation o1 neutrality which tile English government as sumed, its acts havo proved that it had been predetermined, at a fitting moment, to brvnk the blockade, and lend auitve aid to tho rebels of the South. The late- arrivals from Europe show, however, that a change has recently taken place in tho views of British statesmen on the- American question, und'it may safely bo as serted that no fears need now be entertained of a rupture either with England, or any other great maritime Power. If tho1 sympathies of the nrtotocracy of Europe with the- Southern rebellion, had elicited any manifestation of weakness on' the part of the Washing!; ?n administration, there is no doubt that hostilities must sooner or later have grown out of tlirwnbarrassed diplomatic relations that would hwro resulted from it. If the people of J he loyal 'thte* had failed to sirpporttlie Presi dent' in btt-war policy, or had shown less cn l lmsiai'in ia'eontribnting means and men to re store thedategrity of the Union, tho contemp tible ji'alfc'isy of the London Cabinet woidd Imve eqj'i; tfty culminated in a war with Great Britain.

Monetary Aftuirs? Tli?lr Sad Miecalca* latlona. When tho govern mailt of this country asked of tho people an aroiy of four hundred thou sand men, and a loan of four hundred millions of dollars, the London Times, the organ of tha English money changers, emphatically asserted tha< it would bo impossible to raise either tho men or t!v ? money. Tlic American people read the Times very little, and regard it less, and so they set to work to respond to the demands of the government, heartily, cordially and without do lay. We hnd plenty of specie in our banks, and plent) more in our bureau drawers and old hUx "kings, and we cared very littlo for what, the English might do or say. Presto ! We 'had an army in the field more than eq(>al to J1'10 requirements of (ho govern ment. We raifc-?V more than the four hundred m illions of dollar* asked for, and are ready to dovsble that amorwtf, if necessary. What do the British capitalists', a oney changers and gnm blers any now? Wiry , that this1 thing cannot last, y?u know, and lhi*t in three months, or six months -or at senile o4bec time, when we shall bo obliged to expert specie to Engltald, we shall certainly have a groat jmaic bt^re. The U:>thscbil& and Barings and other money dealers, wbe liave made fort roes out of this country, Beom tb- understand' ou? affairs as little as they' do their own. When the^predict a panic in this country thej remind? m of a man who hwi a vineyard upon flhe *iioanic Mount Vesuvius, and who writes to s?Long Island farmer, telling Mm to look out f?.rhim self, and that his great crops can a.nunnt to nothing, tve there is going tc ? be an eruption. If an export of Sj wsie will cause a monetary poilic, during t toe times, wo can rctirrn the British capitalists' compliment, and assure them that when i Si panic comes England and France will feel it first. On this side the water we understand oi.i*' situation very well, an d our Wail street opera tors are quite as shrewd as those of tho London 'Change or tho Paris Bourse; The European reckoners have to go ? through an immense amount of figuring, and' play strange pranks with the four ground rulee, btfore they can cipher out for us a panic. We can show them the probability of a European panic, without half their trouble and with double their accu racy. Let them study the export and import statistics for the past six montiha a little. During all that time they have been export ing specie to this country. During that time their exports of goods to this country have fallen off one-half, or about one hundred mil lions of dollars. During that time their im ports from this country have nearly quadrupled, and are constantly and ston.dily upon the in crease. Throughout this entire country thero is an evident and a growing disposition to buy no more foreign goods during tlic war than are absolutely necessary. In the South this dis position is made obligatory by our blockade, which is becoming every ddy more stringent and effectual. In the North' the people are voluntarily denying themselves luxuries, the most of which are of foreign- importation, and have pretty generally resolved to wear their old clothes for another year, and initiate a com fortable economy. These proceedings show, wo think, that the people h- ? know very well what they are about, and that, from this source at, leabt, there is very little danger of a panic. Meanwhile, the specie which wo have, and which we are constantly receiving, romains in the country, and circulates anong all classes of the people. It has given on impetus to trade, *nd nlre.wly it ha# started our manufactories, sod is keeping them in successful operation. The money loaned by the po&ple to the govern ment is paid out by the government to the soldiers and contractors; ia sent on to the manufactories, the merchant* and the soldiers' families, and llnds its way beck from the people to the government again. Very little of it leaves the country now-a-d&ys, and even that little is becoming beautifully less as we are Retting supplied with cannon, rifles and blank ets, and as onr own manufacturers are getting fairly at work. In all fills it is very hard to lind the material upoa.v?!iich the British money gamblers ba. e their predk tions of an American panic. But when we consid; y that our retrenchment is Europe's loss, and iibat simply by wearing our old clothes, and: denying ourselves useless luxuries we shall iout ofT another hundred mil lions of dollars- ffioua the pockets of European manufacturer* and' workingmen, the probabili ties of a Euiopoaa panic become more appa rent; for Europe- must have broadstuffs, audi ties United States is now the granary from, which the supply must come. If we refit -7,3 to, taice foreign goods, silks, laces and iuiiuk knacks for on? grain, we uiu-'t bo paid 'a, gold,, as we havo- beon for some time past. Whai, hen, will be tl>e result? Why, clearly, thai there will ?><- ? as there has been ? a 1 -export of ,;ol(l fjj jfli Europe; and that, according <ra?tfco reasoning of those British philosophow, will cause ?.upaniis. With U3, then, thu.. aaae nckht stand; atonic or le:.s importations; uad we havjj ? ohotwu the latter alternative docidedly. With th'.'m. according to their <>wn figtwts, the c iso s! ind?: a panic or etarv ttkui. WUwU horn of d:e dilemma will tLey choose? As, the great national cU bt wjji-rii we are piling *p, and which troubles tl-e fiHglish capi talists dreadfully, only r?. wry few words need be u?id. This virgin gantry ia better uble to support a national d*bt than any European country ever an I will su'lv from it as lit tle. He-ides, our debt will aot probably amount to more tii eight hundred millions of dollars, and \v?- cp??, pay th!.--. ?um readily within twenty years, an< ? without .my inconvenience. We do not need die example of England herself ! to assure tu tl;?l a national dobt. well manage^ is not a source of extreme weakne : to a cow try.

While every intelligent man must upprove the removal of General F remont, because of his unfitness for the very Important and responsible position to which ho was appointed, it will be univer sally oonceded that his conduct in retiring from tlw Qoeuiiaud vf Qur army iu Alvasouri was omi [ nently patriotic, discreet and commendable. I Ilia farewell address to his soldiers is the best .thing that ho has done. His army was attached t<? him, no doubt; but wo haye no fears that his removal will result in any serious insubordina tion la the camp. Ilia Italian Bud Hungarian officers, brave and gallant men, may be dis posed to adhere to the fortunes of thuir leader; but some allowances must be made to iheir ig norance of oar political institutions and of our military system.- President Lincoln is not the man to- deal unjut tly or ungenerously with atij public officer. IIe< bos dealt very tenderly with Fremont; but his removal had become a public necessity, to which the President could no longer shut his eye*; And this tells the whole story. > ? Tub Suffering Lotai wts ik North Caro una. - A short time since we called attention to tho distressed condition of thtf people of the coast in the neighborhood at Hattms Inlet, in consequence of their adhesion to the cause o^ the Union. They hive beea plundered of al. moat everything by ike reb*k, and, betng un ; able to obtain supplied aire n<vw in a stat* bor dering tipon starvation. In thfir extremity *iey ! naturally look to tho people of loyal States for relief, and all those wio base' Iheir hopes .1 ifconstraetion of the Ul4or on 'Sue lingering loyalty of the well affected' in tS* Southern' confederacy are bound to sie that Sbeir wants are' promptly supplied. The Rev. Mr. Taylor, of Jofth Carolina, and tho Rev. T. W1 Conway, chaplain of t.fc? Ninth New York regiment, are now in town' for the purptw of raising subscriptions far the relief ol' these poor people ? A meeting has been called' for this e\?tllngf at' th* Cooper I.?tftute> to afford iVese gettHenMD an opp irluntty of more fu) stating their case, and & organize such arrangements xt are necessary to accom plish at onfe the beaOTolVnt work: which they have In hu *1.

Lynch has been elected our Sheriff, and Raymond, the "little villain" of tho Times, has been elected as one of our members to the State Legislature; and these results *wo pronounce a signal disgraoe to the cily> We are not re sponsible, however, for this disgrace. We did what we could to prevent it, am* we wash our hands of it. It is a di??graee which belongs to the voters who supported L^pch and Ray mond. these two noted runners from Bull mn, "to the sound of the enemy's cannon;" but it is a disgrace for which the" slaipid, jobbing and juggling political cliques opposed to these Bull rminers are mainly responsible. Thus Lynch slips into an office of fifty thousand a year, more or lAss, with' cut' overwhelming popu lar majority against him, and 1 simply because this majority was stupidly divided femong three opposing' candidates. RAymond goes to the Assembly^ where we may expect- tin to stir up tho dirty waters of abolitionism on every avail able occasion, and where he will make the best nse of Lis time as a lt>bby jobber. We put him in charge of David' Sv Coddington, a man with a clean record, and uman of honest prin ciples and superior abilities. Inheriting the old fashioned democratic ideas and instincts of liia father? formerly our city Postmaster?Mr. Coddington will look out for (he rascalities of the lobby and tho slippery "little villain" at his ellw>w. Railway Accidents.? We daily hear of acci dents on the different lines of railway through out the- country; but beyond the passing notice which they receive in the newspapers they seem to excite no attention on the part of any one. They are neither followed by the punish ment of those to whose negligence- they are at tributable, nor do thoy induce greater vigilance in the management of the passenger traffic. It is only a f >w days muce an accident took place on the Erie Railroad, through tho carelessness of a switchman, by which one person* lost his leg. and several others were severely injured, be sides occasioning a three or four hours' stoppage of the train. On Tuesday lrtst tho Secretary of War nearly lost his life by falling down a rail way embankment opposite West Point, just as l e was about to take the seven o'clock train for Albany. Tho public should be protected against tmps of this kind by proper fence?; otherwise it is impossible on dr.rk nights to nvoid stumbling ialo them. Some time a<;o an English journal, in commenting upon the number uf railway. accidents that, were constantly taking place in (Treat Britain, re marked that railway directors would not be taught to care for the lives of their passengers until they had 'killed a bishop. Our own rail road manager* will perhaps- he made sensible of the dtilyv/Mch thev owe the public in this re- I gard when t'jey kill a Secretary of War. Happi ly. in this i. stance, and no <3oubt greatly to tl: > disappoint sent of tho shoddy men, who would L< ??lad to sr * Mr. Cameron s*t of their way, thfy did not s *ceeed, and that gentleman, having e.v caped a.if serious injur/ fh?m his fall, is w?are glad tc vj-ay. at)le to rasame those lnbors thich are so jtnportant to consummation ? the splen scheme of operations by which the re bel! is about td ho- speedily crashed V.\f;i,isn CoBUJspoKWtvra in Ameijwa. ?

It makes us melancholy to read them, and we wonder how such penny-a-lining ever made its author notorious. But, unfortunately, be is no worse than the remaining flock, and we cease to look either for knowledge of our affairs or ? skilful treatment of thom in the English jour nals. Where there is enterprise on tholr park thero is a want of talent, and where there it talent it would appear thero is a dearth of en terprise. The result is that the British public mu9t depend on the independent press of New York for its daily history of the war;*uud in this if, could not do better. Proposed Scheme of En-gush P'hucy.? The correspondence that we published yesterday, b <r tween 55r. Henry ITayman. on behalf at himself and severa' other Liverpool merchants, csid Earl Russell, proves the lengths to which the cotton interest in England are prepared to go to pro cure the neeessary nupplit* of that staple.
