Her guards were badly stove, oac of the knees of the engine frame split, tlic upper works much wrecked, and with tbesido s-aruB open, through which the water flooded her bold. The captain reports that, ou lea\ ,ng the Road?, the en tire expedition, followed the Wabasb into the Gulf Stream, while, tho eamo evening, a g?e from the south west was encountered. The Ferry stood it as long as passible, headed for land, lost eight of the lleet, and made Hatteras on Wednesday, but being unable to enter anchored under the lco of tlie Jni.d with tho schooners convoyed by tho Vunrtalia.

On Wednesday tho gunboats J'ettit, Underwriter, I'ut nam, Ellen and Ceres went out for the South, but on Thursday morntng all of them were back again on account af the stress of weather. Tha Porry came the whole distance up the coast from Bull's Bay, within a distance not exceeding fire m iles from shore, but neither saw nor hoard of wrecks, and tha captain ia much inclined to doubt the statement that the Union and another transport had been lost on the North Carolina coast. He fears, however, that tho other ferry boat is lost. Tha Young Rover, from the Southern coast, reports that ?b Sunday morning she spoke the Governor with four hundred marines on board. Her ituokestack was gone, bar machinery broken down, and her rudder gone. In this condition ebe was fast Bearing her fate.

Al though the rebels maintained strict silence, and declared they had no news, I am able to state that a despatch was received in Norfolk that tho expedition had bombarded and taken two forts at the mouth of Port Royal. The Twentieth Indiana regiment will return to Old Mtal. Report says that the wheelman of the rebel steamer ?aid to ono of the bands of the Union stMmer that Bcaa l*rt had been taken. Passengers by the Old Point boat say that tbo Rich jmd Snquirer of Friday, Nor. 8, contains a despatch from Charleston, dated Wednesday, Nov. fl, (simply an nouncing that the Union troop* had landed at two points and wero marching inland. It does not s^y at what points. The I'fttacrs of tho rebel flag oT truce refused to give any information, but the wheelman told a sailor that Beaufort was In possession of the Colonists, and that the national ttag was dying from the Court House. An arrival from the fleet is hourly expected. Fortress Monro*, Nov. B, 1841. Tho ferry boat Commodore Perry arrived hero this morning from the great expedition. She lost sight of the fleet on Friday evening, about thirty miles off Bull's Bay. The fleet was bearing towards Port Roj .U. The capl&in knows nothing about the reported loss of the Union and another transport. His boat became so disabled that he could proceed no farther, but bad to run toward the coast for rnfety. The Mayflower was some distance behind the fleet, with a signal of distress, and the captain thinks she could not have reached her destination. Tho Commodore Per. y lay several hours near t'upe Fear, and finally made Rattens Inlet. Fobtmm Mo.mwb, Sov. 0,1 Via Balximokk, Nov. 10,18?1. J Tlie gunboat Rover, of Boston, has Just arrived-from Oapc Fear, and anchored In the bey. | She reports that on last Sunday, Noy. 3, she found the steniuboftt Governor, Captain Phillips, with marinos on board, in dime, e?smtike stuck gone, steam pipe broke, bow stovo in, rue!tier gone, and machinery out of order. Alongside of her was the powerful gunboat Isaac Smith. The Rover assisted all that was possible, and the Isaac Smith ran down and hailed tho Sabine, which the Rover thought was assistance enough, and lei t. The rest of the fleet it supposed to lie all safe. I have just learned, from a flag of truce come in from Norfolk, that our troops have stormed and captured two forts at Beaufort,S. C. A telegraphic despatch announced this to the people at Norfolk this morning. THE TRANSPORT GOVERNOR. Tho Governor was one of the transports that accompa nied tho great naval expedition. Slio joined the fleet at Fortms Monroe, and sailed with it on the day of its de parture. Sho is a side wheel steamer of 650 tons burthen, whs built in this city in 1S46, and was hardly a suitable vessel to send on such an expedition, as she was only in tended for river navigation. She rates A2, and draws eight feet of water. She had ou board a battalion of United State?; marines, under tho following ofliccrs:? COMMANDING OFFICER. Major John Glurce Reynolds. 1.1NH OFFICERS. Comjxmy A. Captain James Wiley. First Lieutenant J. 11. Grimes. Second Lieutenants {f H.olvri^' Company B. Captain Geo. B. Graham. First Lieutenant Frank Monroe. Second Lieutenants {ItawreuxT' THE OUNBOAT 16A AO SMITH. The Isaac Smith that was teen in company with the Governor, is one of tho newly purchased vessels. She took her armament .consisting of four broadside guns and a rifled gun, on board at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, where she went into commlksion on the 17th of October. She is a propeller, of 350 tons burthen, was built in 1860, at Williamsburg, and has the character of being a staunch boat. She was carefully surveyed last year. It le highly probable that the marines on board the disabled vesse' have been transferred to the Isaac Smith, in which case she could at once proceed, and allow the Governor to re turn heme.

It was reported sho had spoken the steamer Gov ernor, of the fleet, which reported that sIjo hod bees com pelled, ta account of damnga by the stonn, to put her murines on board the frigate Sabiue, which ves.sel pro ceedod direct to Port Royal.

OUR FORTRESS MONROE CORRESPONDENCE. Kortkk.-^ Mosnrtt, Va., Nov. 8,1881. The BomU: rdwvnt of Port Royal, S. C.?Exciumenl Among lh" Tr<ojn-?Wild Rumor.iof the Expedition?MvtxnienU of Je t. Darit?The EbHion in the Rnyiifi Confed eracy?The Advantages if Pert Knval to Our Gor.vr, vii nt?The Infci mint and How lite Information of the Exi*d itii n was Derived, etc., dc. The excitement consequent upon the news received yesterday by way of Norfolk in regard to the landing of our troops and the bombardment of Port Royal,S. C., is the most enthusiastic among the troops and tho Union loving citlzri.6 of the Point. Although tho report was ! kept very close, and tho news only imparted to a few I entitled to be informed of the same, still the facts or the ' caso spread like wildQre, nud at (.'amp Hamilton the i troo|? are wild with joy. tossing up caps and muskets in tho paroxysm of their frenzied delight. Humors < l the capture of Charleston wore also rife, and that G< ner.il Sherman's cuiumn was marching on to Charleston, and had cut his way through to within ten miles of this h< tbed of secession. How these rumors gain cre dence you may f mo pine. They are like rolling snowballs, gathering at every revolution, until magn;tn d to the extent of the frog in the fable. But one thing is certain, and that is, that the licet has struck the blow, and that it was an effectual one. -Further dovelopcmcnts from the source I derived my information lead me to be lieve my asriertion. I know as a fact that Jeff. Davis has left Rk:)uuond for Charleston, taking with hiin se.ve. ral of bix attaches. Ho no doubt wishes to be present to j witness the fun, and in glad to draw off sotno of tho ex citemi'ot attendant upon the ol"ction of Presldc.it iu the Confederate States. Whether ho has been rc-elec,od or not 1 have no moans of knowing, as the latest dates from Riclanond were those I telegr.ij bed to you, being i extracts from the Richmond Examiner of tho 4th In;: I. The coming of tho fleet to tho Southern sliorea has been a Godsend to the conspirators of the stripe or .leff. 1 avis fc Co., a? it naturally divides the attention of their cwi stitneiitF, who relax their vigilance in watching tin |?ii. , tical warfare, and concentrate their power to repel the assault of the Union am.s. Fortunately, however, for our cause, tho destination of the expedition ha* be n safely ' kept from the public,and was only dlvulgtd at a time 1 when tho blow was about being slri.ck. Port Royal or Cliarlcs'ton, ei'ln r one, is a terrible loss ' to the rebels. The former not being fortilicd, at least as strong as tho latter, still it offers a safe harbor to our ma- ! rine, and can be adopted for the fitting out of rnture expe ditious destined to make incursions into the heart of the rebels' domain. The possession of that port gives lis a strong fooUiold, and will prove a rallying point for the I oppressed Union population. Great numbers of this class will ball with delight liio advent of our troops, and j welcome tho star snangled emblem of liberty (bating once more defiant and triumphantly fn tho heart of re bellion. Port Royal will be a second Hattaras Inlet, with tho only difference that the former is net so apt to bo laid waste by a terrific gale as that which played havoc w.th Forts UntteraH and Clark on Saturday of last week. The manrer in which the iiiformittlon of the bombardment of Port Royal was received from Norfolk. Is aa follows:? Dr. 0. K. Vahs, a surgeon of the llnito l State* Navy, arrived heru some time a^'O from the coast of Africa, waa ordered to report at tho llaro Island Navy Yard, California. Trior to leaving fur his destination be was desirous of transacting some business at Norfolk' Va. He ei insulted Major General Wool about tho subject, and It must have been of the utmost im portance, inasmuch as the General B^ut him with a flag of truee on Tuesday, the 5th lt.st., as far as Craney Island. From tbla jxnnt tho Doctor was con veyed by the enemy to Norfolk, where he retn.iinod un til yesterday (Thursday) afternoon. On his arrival liere he was besieged by many anxious inquirers as to the naws stirring iu "Beooesia," but ho evadod all importu nities, and confided the statement regarding the bom bardment of Tort Royal to but very few pert-ons. Imme diately on hia arrival here he waited upon General Wool) and, no doubt, imparted to him tome moro valuable in formation, wlii H, of course, was not made public. The Toetor left with the Raltimore boat last evening for the North, and will proceuJ to California on tho 11th inst. OCK SPECIAL VUnnOTM DESPATCHED. RECEPTION OF GOOD NEWS FROM ALL POINTS OF THE COMPASS. Wahiuxotos, Nov. 10,1801. ! Good news has poared in upon us to-day. , First?That brought by the Nightingale of the capture of rebel munitions of war ofTNew Orleans. Next?The contlrmatlon of a victory at Itelmont, Mo. and the seizure of the rebel camp and cannons. Next?The defeat of Jeff. Thomson and hia hand of mat audor s. Next?The gratifying intelligence from Gen. Rosecrans that he has repulsed tho attack of Floyd, and is ablo to maintain his position. And l.ant and most glorious of all?Tlie landing of our troops upou the soil of South Carolina, the capture of lleaufort and the eli'vation of tho Stars and Stripes in the garden vpotor the State, that has been the poisoned source of all our domestic troubles. Of all these matters you aro already fully advised. The rejoicing of the loyal people hero at this torrent of good news Is unbounded. The doubts and fears engendered by previous delays, discomfitures and disasters, are begin' ning to be forgotten, an 1 tho opinion is everywhere ox. pri sued that to eflbctuoliy cn:sli out tho rebellion,already staggered by tho blow on tho South Carolina coast, it Is only needed that the gr ut army of tho l'otomac should push out lis mighty array and demolish tho rebel horde in its front. Thin will come ero li ng. It i" the next stop in the grand drama that is being enacted before the American people, and will be attended witii oven leas delay than the preparation of the naval expediilcn. A NEW FEATURE IN T1IE POLICY OF TDK GOVERN MENT?COTTON TO BK OBTAINED BY PEACEABLE MEANS. The government has issued permits to parties in lib otic Irian 1 to trade with loyalists along our Southern coast. Vessels are now fitting out for that purpose, loaded with supplies of various kinds, among which is salt, clothing and other articks of prime necessity, which, it is expected, will be at opto exchanged for cotton. Tli.s is a new feature in government policy and war, and may lead to important results. Senator Simmons, of Rhode Island, it la said, has been tho principal mover in this matter. It may be, however, that these vessels and others now fitting out will also follow the expedition, and as soon as an opening is made by tho expedition, and u permanent fooling obtained in South Carolina or Georgia cargoes of cotton will be at once shlpiasd to Liverpool and other points. Tins is a very important movement, and has the full sanction of tho government. FAILURE OF THE REBELS IN THKn ATTACK ON UENS EAL K08KCBAN8' POSITION. Tho War Dejiartment received a despatch from General Rosecrans to-day, in which he states that he was still at Gaulcy Bridge. Tho rebels, having utterly failed in their attacks, had resumed their former position, and were waiting for our forces to attack them. General Rosscrans does not doubt his' ability to maintain himself In hie position, and when he is ready ho will give the enemy an opportunity to try their fighting qualities Both armies had been quiet for some days. IMPORTANT FROM THE LOWER POTOMAC?CAPTURE OF SttProSEl) REBEL SriKH. Tho following despatch has boeu received from the special correspondent of the Hbraij) on tlie Potomac: I'.vini) Saras stravrr Yah kiss, \ Off India!* Hkad, Potomac River, Nov. 8,1801. j About ten o'clock this morning a boat, containing two whit'i men anil a negro, waft seen coming out of Occoqoau creek, on which Captain CIcary, of tbe Dawn, sent two boats to intercept tbe steamor, which was done, anil the three men taken on board the Dawn. Master's mate Lawrence was then sent from the Yan koc to inquire who the men were, and on returning o? board he reported that they had represent oil to Captain CIcary that they were government spies employed to ope rate among the rebels. They produced papers purporting to bo from tin Wnr Department, which Captain CIcary at onco pronounced to be bogus. The men reported that there are no boats on Occoquan creek, no troops and no means of crossing the river from there. Believii.g them to bo rebel spies who had the te merity to risk inevitable capture, Captain Cleary sent them on sl'.oro to the military headquarters. Later in tho day Mr. Lawrence, accompanied by Dr Moore, went on shore aud visited the camp of tho Fourth Excelsior regiment of Now York Viro Zouaves, \vhither the suspected spies had been taken. Our officers had an interesting conversation Willi tho Major of tho regiment' who informed th"m that the men were detained in cus tody till further orders should be received from Wa.*hmg 'on. If they really turn out to be rebel spies they would be all the better tor a good hanging. GENERAL HALLKCK ASSIGNED TO THE DEPARTitBNT OF THE WtST. M.ijor General Halleck has been assigned to tho com mand of tlio Department of tho \*cn, ami General End to Kentucky. The selection of the former to take charge of affairs in Missouri was made at tbe suggestion of Cod, McCIellan, and it cannot be long beforo tho present t!is. tracted condition of things in that State, under this able and experienced General, will astumo a healthy and satis factory condition. COMMANDER l'OOR TO BE COURT MAKTIALKD KOB NKQ L2QENCB. The Court of Inquiry in tho case of Commander Peer, charged with negligence concerning tho escape of the privateer Sumter, have adjourned, and in their report to the Navy 1 "opart ment have ordered a court martial to con vene, ci niposed of Captain flreese, President; Captains Uitimer, Levy, Jarvis and Cliauncey; Lieutenant 'William G. Temple, Judge Advocate. The court will meet on tbo 18th inn. A J.I. QflET ALONG TIIE tTflON LINES. Affair.-1 along the whole line of tho Pott mac havo been ominously quiet to-day. There is nothing whatever from down the rlvor. THE EXt II AN OK OF CTNION AND REBEL PRISONERS. It is understood that the government has del'rmmed upon a change of policy in regard to an exchange of prisoners. No valid roason can l?e adduced lor the ! Hesitation hitherto ir.aulfcsted to agree to such cx hange. By the ti eusnn of superior officers and the puitiilauimity Of the previous administration, some of th<: ablest oliicers in the army hove been thrown out of service, S3 prisoners or on parole, which, unlike tho rebels : who hi.vo been paroled, us honorable men they cannot violate. It is not only jt-.st to our officers aiiil men who are prisoners or on parolo that ihcy should bo etch/inged, but tV reasons assigned for relaying this excl au?o are no longer tenable. It would not be n recognition of a separate government, nor would it afford nay lumber recognition of tlio rebel* as bellige rent.! than has already been given. The action of tho government iu sending lo Tcxai lrsnsjiorts to bring away the pareied officers and men of tbo army surrendered ami dlfarii od by the treachery of the traiior Twiggs, was as much a recognition of the rebel* ns belligerents as an exchange of prisoners could he. In military usage, the practice of exchanging prisoners simply recognises a state of war. It is one of the modes employed by civilized peoplo to ameliorate the | har !<hip* of war, and in no way furnishes a recognition of tho i>hi of the belligerent parties further thun is already furnished by ruining armies to light an acknowl edged fiii'my. It is simply an act of humanity and noth ing more. The government] has at last recognized thin laot, and is preparing to act upon it. Ono of the moat excellently equipped and managed regi ments tbat lias been added to the army of the Potomac lathe Fifty sixth (New York), the Tonth Logion, oom ?nanda<l by Colonel Charles H. Van Wyck; It is fourteen hundred and eighty strong, and composed of iplJUdid malaria), and imiter the management of its enorgetlo Colonel will m.'tke Its mark whenever it shall be called jiito the field. TU8 VACANCIES IN TUB NAVAL ACADEMY. Tbo Navy Department, being anxious that the vacancies in the Naval Academy, about thirty In number, shall be filled w hi Mitt us practicable, has again extended the time during which members of Congress entitled to nomina tions of ADiing Midshipmen, by reason of failure or other" wise, can make tliem, they have until the30th of Novem" ber for this purpose.

Among the recently appointed brigadier generals are Motgnn, of Ohio, and Colonel Philip St. George Cook, who recently brought hither his cavalry troops from Utah' ] Be is a native of, and appointed from, Virginia. THE RECENT REVIEWS OF THE AKMY. | The rrrcnt reviews of the various diviutoi.s of our ?rmy hero have greatly gratiiied tho General.in Chief.

Their money has beeu secured and the Major arrested and returned to Springfield under a strong guard. TllK ACTION AT BELMONT, MO. Undor all the circmnBtaacen, tho lato action at Pal ^ mont, Mo., is considered in a high degree croditable to al our troopa concerned iu it, and the credit of tho brilliant movement is duo to General Grant.

They pre sumed^ course, that we would be pushed onward vlg orously and victoriously. Meantime Zolliooffor fled in disorder through Barbourville to the ford and from the ford to the Gap. Meantime, discovering our foebleness in the head, by our dilatory movements, he sent back his cavalry to forage through Cumberland Valley; and squ ids of them, learning through their spies Hunt Uen. Schoeff had not been provided with cavalry, boldly approached day after day within four or live miles of us. During the ten days which elapsed after their retreat from Wildcat l hey for ui*ed and ravaged tho country from a [>oii>t within a dozen mil- s of us, and up ih- Cumborland Valley, accu mutating large herds of c.Utie, droves ol ? hnep and h-.gs, and ib<> bett horses in the country, besides carrying away all the corn and small grains their wagons could move. And here we lay suplnoly on our backs, per Uiltting these excesses under orders which positively pr< liiblted any advance. And now wu liav^Jieforo us a certain projn>ect of tre mendous obstacles to overcome before wc can touch tho soil of Kaat Tonne: sou through the Cup. The heavy rains of the III at two days of this month swelled tho Cum? boi laud, i>adthe last remaining squad of rebels, adtno in:'hod of danger, passe 1 ihe ford and e^cap-d. I bet? par. don th'-re Vihs then no danger ol' an attempt to int :n pt tii m, though it w;ia fortuiiute for them that they retired, because (when it was loo late), Geiunal tolioetl took the r spoofiliillty of sending a i ecowioiteriqg detuchtiK'Ut alter them. Meantime the rebels had obstructed all the loans but the main thoroughfare whiih leads to tho lord, and had fortilled two miles beyond. Itut when they tell luck to the Gap?oue day Inst week?they destroyed their works, and, upon arriving at tho Uap, they wro heavily reinforced. They now number 22,'.'DO n.-u, uud wo are Informed that Geuorul I/ e is in command. Our iniormation on tbe latter point is not positive, but It is reliable iu other respects. 'ihe report, however, that a new general is in command, seems to bo continuedby tho lact that tho old f truncations at the (lap have been demolished recently, and that new oiid more formidable works arc being undo. Thus yon will por celve that an expedition which would have been com paratively easy, had it been pushed vigorously, will be made almost, if not finite. Impossible, by oorwretched policy of walling for the rebels to preflate lor us. it is not probable that the relicts will make another at tack upon us. The Wildcat affair cost them loo dearly. Whllo retreating, thoir officers openly proclaimed that they would not undertake to whip tho Llncoinites again In a chosen position; that wo must follow them if we <\< sired to (tut:-'.. 8efo:o thoy left the ford they got tired waiting for ue, and swore that ii we did not come on before ?Inter set In, wo would lindnobody t> flub'- It is also stated that Jeff.

It will not only demoralize our army, but it will exasperate th. Union people of Ki n tucky iu this section, and will fill the hearts of the loyal Tennewocuns with de*|>alr. Tri:e, Ifco Cemborland Valley is not the most aioreenble place in the world to winter, and tho difllcully of moving supply trains over mod'!y and frosty mountain toads is formidable; but the ad%sntsge ot maintaining tho ground wo have recovered, uud of inspiring the Onion people of Kentucky and IVnnessee with confidence, is a complete vlndicrttIon of such a policy.

TUB BODY LYIM IS BTATB IN THB <KI VF.BNOB ? BOOM?DfMfeNSB CBOWP OF naiTBBH, KTC. New York has again tho melancholy necessity of mourning over the dead bod/ .of ? soldier of tbo repub lic, and yesterday the Well attested her grief. Tbo re mains of Colonel E. I), linker, who was killed in the tat tle of Boll's PiutT, and which arrived to this city front Philadelphia on Saturday, were depoeited during the en* tire of yesterday in the Governor's Room of the City Hall. Tbe body wus under guard of Oompany A, Seven ty-first regiment Now York State Militia, Lieutenant Tompkins?Corporals leggett and Marline acting as officers of the day. Tbe lid of the coffin containing tit# remain.s was removed at eleven o'clock, and the door* ot tho room being thrown open, the public were admitted to gase open the laco of tho dead. The features of tho colonel were scarcely recognisable, and bore a blackened and disturbed appearance. The eyes were closed peacefully, but there still remained thai high forehead and stern expression which were tho pecu liar marks of Colonel Raker while alive. - The coffin was wreathed in the American flag, and two bunches of whit* flowers were placed upon the body, emblem atic of the pure and noble cause in whteb tbe dead soldier lout his lire. Tbe stteam of visiter* which passed through the Governor's room in single flio continued unabated from eleven o'clock until paat three, to that there must certainly have passed through over tea thousand [ktsoos during that space of time. Sorrow for the untimely fate of the departed was de picted upo*every fOMMO. Many there were, no doubt ? who lmd very recently looked upon Colonel Baker while enjoying the health and strength of a useful manhood: many there ivero who had heard his stirring appeal at our great Union meeting in fourteenth iftreet, and their hearts lieat thick and fust as they gazed upon those lip* which had uttered the inspiring words, now compressed and blue in the agony of the last death struggle; many there wero who had, over and over again, reed In tbe papers tbe chronicle or his memorable oratory whioh had rung out its lnitn|iet notes so orton in the halls of the Senate. Many thoro were who had been present but some rew weeks since at 'he last review of his splendid regi tncut, (the brst California), at Fort Schuyler, prior to it* departure to fight in tho cause of the Union. That review was doomed to be his lost berore a New York public, and ?tfcftmie on bis horse looking every inch a soldier, at that time, thu mind of man could not picture that so noble Bseidier sml SO great u statesman should so soon lie In our City Lhtli cold and inanimate. Hut such io the decree of tato, and though OUonel Haker is gono, tho remembrance of his heroism at Kali's Bind will ever lie in tho hearts of his country men as au incentive and inspiration to follow his gloriouO example. A large portion of tliose who visited the remains yet. terday wa - composed of ladies, whoso tender hearts are always an alluded by sights of pntn and suffering, lien of all positions, nationalities and callings were also there, and thu merchant mid the tradesman, thu civilian and the soldier, tho politician and thu mvn of letters, all |>ass#d through tn gaze upon the rat red remains of one who had so valiantly fought and fell iu defence of tho houor of hta Hag and coilBtrj.
