ALOKU THE HOt'THERN COAST. Senator Simmons, of R. I., baa arrived hore to-day > agreeably to the previous programme announced in the Hnuut), and informed the government that he had despatched a vessel from Providence for the Fouth loaded with various kinds ?f articles of prime necessity, such a? sugar,coffee, salt, shoes, Ac. The veftel will make her landings along the North Carolina coast nt such points as may bo deemed advisable by her commander,and whoro an exchange of the artlc'es which she carries for cotton can be made. The cargo Is a most valuable one, and, should the expedition prove successful, will richly remu aerate the parties engaged in It. Others are now fitting out In the North, and will Immediately follow up the one Hut started. One item of the cargo of the vessel sent by Senator Simmons is sixty-sis hundred bags and twelve thousand bushels of salt, which is perhaps more needed ameng the rebels than any other article of consumption, to this not cottoning to traitors rather early? TRAVB IX BEAUFORT OR ITS VICINITY. Tor the lnformutlou of applicants to tlie government, too numerous to bo answered individually, there Is au thority for saying that thus far no decision has been mado in regard to permitting trade in Beaufort or its vicinity. OKN. nEINTZKLMAN'S RKCONNOISSANCE. The reconnoissance under Gen. Hotntzdman on the 12th Inst., was the most thorough that has been made, and was executed In consequence of a demonstration having hem made by the enemy the day beforo. Tbo who)0 country was examined, and tbe four hundred rebel caval ry that have been annoying the psoplo of Pohick Church, ware driven out. The main body of the force marched twenty-two miles. I have before stated that a company of the Lincoln Cavalry, under rapt. Todd, strayed away from a portion of Gen. Sedgwick's brigade, under com mank of Col. Berry. Gen. H.-iutzelman states that the toss sustained by th!? movement was from the nflgllgenco of the officers In command of the cavalry, who permitted their men to straggle in the presence of the enemy, and to plunder. Of the Lincoln Cavalry, Sergeant O'Brien Is killed; bugler Denton m?rtally wounded, since died; pri vate Millsagrounded, missing; private Mitchell, wounded ?lightly; cKpt. Todd, missing; private Johnson, missing. Seven horses are also missing. The rebels evidently oc cupy several points on the railroad in forco. have a caval ry station at or near Klzey's and Songster's Cross Heads, and a force at Wolf Run Shoals. ENCOURAGING NBWB PROM EUROPE. The news from Europe brought by tho last steamer to the government here continues to be of the most encou raging nature. Tbe rebel agents In both England and France have, It is said, wr itten to the rebol authorities that there was little hope of accomplishing anything like ft recognition from either of these governments. It was on the receipt of this intelligence that Davis despatched Slide)) and Mason, with extraordinary powers to mako treaties, &c., in tho hope that their sinking fortunes ?light be saved. AFFAIRS ON THB LOWER POTOMAC. 6en. Sickles, accompanied by one of the special army cor respondents of the Mkraij), hap made several balloon ascen* sions In Maryland, opposite Shipping Point and Aquia cre<'k, resulting in valuable discoveries as to the positions and strength of the rebels. A history of tUeso balloon reconnotsea^ces will be furnished exclusively for tho Herald In due time, when the publication will uot prove ?a injury to the public servioe. An arrival from the llotillu brings the report that tho Schooner Maryland wu- fired ut yesterday from the Vlr gin la shore, while'becalmed and anchored off Pig Point, ?nd was set on (Ire. She was boarded, howevor, by ? Hart, of the Firs) Mx.-mchugotts regiment,of Sickles' ki igade, who ex' inguished the flames and saved her from the enemy.

Horeportedth.it tho tire of tho rebels was from flying artlllory, which they havo been Shining About from time to time. After firing for s< me time, ft host with eleven mou put cfl from t'.ie Virginia shore, and boarded a small schooner loaded with wood,cal1' 1 theTtelaware,of St. Marys. On the approach of tho rebel lwut the master and men of the Schooner left in thai own b at for the Maryland shore. two guns belonging to a battery of flying artillery were sent down to Stump Neck and opened on the rebel boat, upon which tho chivalry left the gehooncr and fled precipitate ly back to the Virginia so. ire, bit not boforo they had piled a quantity of bed ling in the c. bin atid set it on Are. A largo boat (Hie I with Massachusetts In ops then put off from Maryland and took |N.s.-es, ion of the schooner, hav ing succeeded In extintuHiltig the lire, which consi lora bly damaged the cabin. Tho schooner lay when we en tered the erect a littln further up. We went after her, took her In tow and t-he is now astern ef us. Tho officer and his men who ctrae on b'ard havo left In th> ir own boat; and they, with the lr>wps on parting, Suluted the Yankee with three cheers and a tiger. Tlio schooner ia vei.t much cut up in her sails, and she received several shells in lier hull and wood pile. A six pound rifle soiid shot was found among tho wood, and fragments of a twelve pound rillo shell were also found, Showing t'o*t the shell had exploded on board. Rut for the timely assistance of tho military the schooner must havo been lost. None of tho shots from tho lower batteries reached. Wo have ai rived at our anchorage off Indian Head. The Schooner is at anchor ahead of us. Her crew, who aio all negroes, are left behind somewhere at Stnmp N'cck. H.u.f-iva-t 1 ivr o'clock P. M. Captain Paul, of the TMaware, has just come on board the Yankee. U? sues he lay in Wade'* Bay slnco Mon day. 1-ast night he took advance of the tide and a slant of wind to endeavor to run the blockade.

Tho rebels thee sent their boat to board tlio schooner, which had to be again abandoned! but tho arrival of our Hying artillery prevented them frcm completing their work of destruction. All the food and clothin?? of tho captain and crew a-e destroyed. Tho daik'-ys brne returned to tho vessel. Tho schooner received u'luut twenty shots In her.

The weather wan dear down the river, and not only the smoke, but the tlash of each dto. charge was vividly scon, but as the wind blew towards the Maryland shore we did not hear the reports. Captain Karnman weighed anchor (Mid stood down the river, keeping close into the Virginia shoro.

Slw is to have her housing removed, and be converted into a gun boat, with heavy armament. Captain Foster Is well known as one of the most energetic olliceis attached to the flotilla.

A delegation of prominent citizens of Baltimore has visited Washington lo mako an appeal in behalf of tho workingmen of that city. They say; Hy the violence and factions opposition of a treason ab'c minority, Baltimore has been involved in diaster and .lit tress beyond win is due to tho mere existence of ii statu of war, and their troubles have been still for ther ag> ravated b> tho disabled condition of the Haiti moro and Ohio itailroad, the principal artery of n? jr trade and source of their prosperity. or their misfortunes ps merchants,however, they did not propose to complain, but they apt-ear. <1 to plea.I for such reh'. i as tho govci nment could afford to the laborers and mechan ics of Baltimore. The almo.-t total susperoion during the past siv months of the trades and manufactories upon win h so large a projwrtion of the people are dependent has brought famine to their doors and aroused the most gaomy forebodings of tho ap ?roadi nj winter- but amidst all their sufl'e ings the patriotism of tho industrial classes have been pro. I' against tile insidious ?irg nients of those who sought to involve them in hos tiily to tho government, by representing tho war as tho neediessat.l w i. ked wise of tie i>- nns.ry,and thendmin Utraiiou as opposed to their State interests and rei ki -ss of tl.eir persoiial welfare. The great majority have always been loyal. They ha-, o furnished many of their number to tho army and navv and have by thoir overwhelming votes at the lateclecti' n vindlcat <1 tho honor or the state and demonstrated their own fidelity and zeal. The delegation exproci. d the belief that the government would consult economy no less than policy in causing more liberally linn heretofore vessels to bo repaned and constructed in Baltimore. They further suggested tho cxpodieney of es tabii hing thote a naval depot,and alsoa branch cfothiug bureau,by furnishing employment in thiso andother wti) s, so rat us tho government lies the power to tho laboring classes. The oil'ct would bo not only to nncourago loyal men, but to confirm the wavering, and atta t those, who, for a time have been seduced by the mis:epre-emations ortho rebels. or intimidated by the threat, daily ma le, and acted,of withdrawing all custom aud patronannge fronyhe friends of the government. Tliey exprcs5 their warmest wifch h for the prosecution to a succ ^ d'ul issue of the w.ir now waging for tho preserva tion of the dignity, unity and stability of our common country. To this address of tho d. legation the President replied as follows;? Gr.vn.KMix?I thank you for the address you have presented to me in behalf of the people of Baltimore. I have deplored the calamities which tho sympathy of some misguided citizens c.f Maryland had' brought down upon thai patriotic and heretofore flourishing State Hio prosperity of Baltimore up to tho 10th of April last wa? one of tho wonders produced by the American Union He who strangles himself, for whatever motive is not more unreasonable than w re those citizens of Baltimore who, in a single night, destioyed tho Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, the Northern Pennsylvania Railroad and the railroad from Baltimore to Philadelphia. From the day when that mad transaction occurred, the govern in ? ntof the United State?has be. n diligently engaged in endeavoring to restore those great avenues to their for mer usefulness, and at the samo time to save Baltimore u.d Maryland from tho dungor or complete ruiu through an unnecessary an t unnatural r boilion. 1 congratulate you upon the declaration which tho peo ple of llaltimore and Maryland have made In tho recent election, of th ir recent approbation of the acts or tho icderaigovernment, and of their enduring loyalty to tho Union. 1 r. g vrd the results of tiu-so elections as au ><[>iciuusof r< tirnlt.g loyalty throughout all tho insurrec tion try ;-Uto?.

They have d< served that j>arlici|u tioo. Loyalty baa involved them lit some danger, ami nag demanded of them Home sacrl/loes. Tlietr wishes, as you have oomnr;uiratod ttiom, at.all bo re ferred to tlie proper departm* nts, ami 1 am sure that every member of the administration will cheerfully l< nd his ,ud to carry them out, S" far aa It can bo dono consistency with the prudemo and economy which ought always to rcgulato the public service.

We march to enforce the laws and sustain the govern ment. Every loyal citizen is expected to give evidence of his loyalty by active efforts for lite protection of the flag. For four months oar armies have marched through your country; your profossed friendship has been a fraud; your oatliiof allegiance haro l/oen shams ef perjuries; you feod tno rebel army; you act as spies while claiming jO he trno to tho Cnion; wo don't caro about your pa t political opinions; no man will ba prosecuted because ho dilTcrs from us; b it neutrality is impossible; if you a>-e patriots you must fight: If you are traitors you will bo punished.

Every man who feeds, harbors, protects, or in any way gives aid and comfort t? the enemies of the Cnlon will bo liwld responsible for hi" treason with his life and property; w hil all the property of Union men and all their rights will bo religiously re spected. Traitors will everywhere bo treated as outlaws, en' mien of God and man, too baso to hold any d' scription of property, and having no rights which loyal men are bound to respect. Tho last dollar and the last slavo of rebels will bo t^k-u and turned over to the general government. Playing war is played out, and wherever Union troops uro tired upon, tho answer wilj boom from cannon, and desolation will follow tre .son. All the land between Fort Leavenworth and the head quarters of tho army of the West is under tho Jur.s diction of the United States, and wo propose to have a regular road over it, an 1 safe communication through it,*no matter at what cost of rebel treasure and blood.

Tho reason of iho seizure of the Neva by tho Mary arose from certain information li.iv ing been given to tho naval officer in tho China seas that tho former wan being tilled out at Shangliae us a privateer. The following ex tracts, published in the IIkkju.d of November 7, from late Asiatic papers, will explain tho |*>sitlon of allliirs up to the departure of tho mail from those parte. The American men of-war liavo left that station for borne, with the exception of ono small vessel, which re mains behind at the earm>t request of American flniui' Tills vessel lias gone suddenly to Shanghai!, owing to tho purchase there of a schooner for the purpose, it was be lieved, of being armed as a privateer under the Confede rate Dag. THK KKIIKI, vniVATKKIt IN T11K CHINA WATERS. [From the Singapore (K. I.J Times, Aug. 24.1 Commodore Kilgle, flag oUleer of tho United States squadron in China, has, we are informed, delayed tho de parture from Singapore of tbo United Suites steamer Hartford until to morrow. In consequence of receiving in telligence of tlie report trom Shanghai', which Ik pub lished at length in our columns to-day, w itn regard to tho fitting out at tlut port of a craft for privateering or pirati cal purposes. Nothing would more delight the gallant Commodore than to capture and punish such a cratt before Ins return to America, lint there seem* to be no reliance to bo placed on tho report, and it th"re should bo such a vessel actually lilted out at any time, the United Stall's steam gunboat Saginaw, is just the cratt !?> pursue and capture her, the Hartford being too largo for such a purpose. Itesides, additional steamers could he chartered at any moment by the United Slates officers, if required for tile urutoc tion of American commerce.

The whole affair may provo a canard, she cannot b come a privateer unless tiiunk letters of marqi o aro to bo had from some agent of tlio Confederate States, or that her rojiorted master has brought such with him from America. A letter of marque gives tho name, size, rip, g'lns and number of men on board tho vessol carrying the samo, which it is obvious could not have been fur nishod complete for tho vessel in question. If, however, tho p irtici.'Ia-s enumerated have been filled upsin Shan gliae, it is net impossible that further documents of a simi lar nature may ho In existence.

'What Vraarl She I* gupponed to Be?la she the Flnqall now on her way from Ortenork 1 Very ini|iort?nt information under date of November 12, Is received from Holmes' Hole, relative ti^tbe seizure of a British steamer. It appears tMat tbo brig Man/onI, Captain Colson, had arrived at that port from Cardenas' Cuba, after a passage of twelve days. 8ho roports a largo Hritlsh steamer having been taken by a Dotted Status fripnte and carried into Key West. The Englishman tried to paw himself otT as one of her Miycsty's war steamers, and refused to be examined by our frigate. Hut a show of forco by tho latter brought him to hig senses. Tho stenmer wns found to be loaded with guns and ammunition for SecOKtda. At the last no\vw from Key West they had taken out Ave thousand muskets. The officer of the Mnnzoni does not give any part leu lars relative to the name of the seized craft, but from very good authority wo may bo lod to believo that she is tho British steamer Fiugall, which cleared from Scotland uudor very suspicious circumstances. The Eurojmm Tiw-i a short time since reproduced tho following some what suspicious statement from a Creenock paper ? Tho steamer Klngall is announced to havo cleared at that, port recently lor " Madeira and the West Omit oi Africa," with a cargo of munitions of war valued at ??10.000. It is difficult to believe that 11.1141 rifles, 4cD <K)0 cartridge*, 600 Balms, a quantity of wrought bather belts, seven tons of shell, four pieces of artillery, and so forth, are destined for negroes. African trade guns are not usually rillcs, und it is just p >Fglbl ? that our (.'ro< nock ei n'ciiiporary Ins, by a slip of tho pen, substi tuted '? Madeira and the Wi st Coast of Africa'' lor " the | South rn States ot Nirth America." Taking these facts Into consideration with those re ported by tho Munzoui, there is certainly a very great amount of probability in tho supposition that the vessel that should havo gone to tho "West Coast of Africa" lwn boot*found In an entirely different region, and one whoro she could not have easily drifted to during tho recent rtorm. Her arms, being contraband of war, can be added to th.so of the goven.-ment, and, if very superior) may be put to Homo practical use. THE JEFF. DAVIS CAPTAIN.
