PUR HILTON HEAD CORRESPONDENCE. Hh.tob Hbad, S. C. , Nov. 27, 1881. & Capture of Tytvc Island ? Preparation! Going on/or linother Expedition ? What a Ret* I Priscnur Says ? The flrtaHatory Measure f of South Carolina, Ac. , rfc. the gunboat Florida arrived here on Sunday, direct Vi the mouth of the Savannah river. In paps Tybee Island she saluted the rebel batteries with Qe few sheila, and, not receiving a return salute, they ded and found it was deserted. This confirm*, in ieasure,the reports brought in by fugitive eUvci, ,.t as soon as the uews reached Savannah that the Union ccs bad possession of this point the inhabitants tmme tely commenced moving their goods further inland, 1 the authorities called in their troops from different i nts along t'ue coast to fortify and defend that city, to roope since their landing here have been bard at rk in discharging the cargoes of the different trans t?, building warehouses, stables, docks, Ac. Captain Eton, Chief Quartermaster, took the steamer McClellan i other day and proceeded up the inlet as far as Beau t and took possession of gome 100,000 feet of luni - r, which he brought back with him. We were in a ?te of great excitement during This abscnce, as he did t return as soon as be anticipated, and reports re circulated that be and his cscort woro tnken prison . Captain Dujiont despatched two gunboats to&tid i the truth of the reports, which, happily, tbej found true. The military authorities are working day and night in ing out a new expedition , the Atlantic and Constitut ion i expected here during the week, with troops to tako *t in it, some say. aptain K. Salt on, the Chief Quartermaster at thin ce, has all ltis transports, equipments and supplies .dy to proceed with the nest expedition, which will o its departure from this place on the arrival of more ops from the North. Captain Saxton's efficiency as ief Quartermaster in this expedition has no doubt thered it to Us present extent. His exertion y and night is untiring. Be has proved himself to one or the mop.t efficient quartermasters in the United .tes Army. Assisted by his chief clerk, Mr. Moure, jrything in the Quartermaster's Department is pro taking in the most rapid and satisfactory manner. Mr. ore, being a number of years chief clerk in the de -traent,bas given him an unlimited experienoe; his vices ar? almost indispensable at this place. It hoped that the government will make many :h appointments as tbesa in that important anch of the service. was permitted te have an interview with Mr. njamiii Chaplain, who was taken by the Seveuty ith Highlanders, 83 I wrote yon in my last. In ,'erenco to the causes of this war, he states that ? feeling of the South is that the North intonds to away with slavery, and that the exclusion of slavery ?in the TorrHorios ? which, as he says, were bought th the common money and blood of both sections ? i>ve s this. The North is growing stronger every year, .alio they are remaining, wo may any, in tlaiu quo, and a few years the South will have no voice in the coun s of the nation, llu says that the South tun loo/ looked ?ward to tt, and thai thoy have made up their minOs settle the question at once. That was ono reason why oy supported Breckinridge Inst ad of Douglas. They mly believe that they cannot be conquered. One reason /en is, tbo broad expanse of territory, thinly populated d means of transportation meagre, and the immense ?t of transporting supplies from such a distance as wo ve to bring ours. On the contrary, he states thai If 0 South had the Union u?. y , the South would uquor tho North, oh the difficulties which we jor under would bo douo away with on their rt , as they would find overything to their hand at tho >rth. As it is, manufactories aro now springing up all rough the South; they are putting forth their utmost wor? In this their life or death struggle. This harbor is of tho utmost importance to our govern Kit. Its tributaries by and and sea aro of easy arccsE 1 the Sea Island cotton (which is tho best in the world) owing in this part of tho Sou. li can bo convi yed from . p'aco of growth to this place in tweivo hours, by her sea or land -earring?. This is the best and safest rbor in any of tie Southern States. The largest vesae* tho world cau riio saieiy at anchor and enter the bar. r at h'gh water. For instance, the majestic steamship ?ndorbiit entered tt, drawing tweutv- three f?ol of v. ater > d now rides safely at anchor on its waters. The gov uncnt sbotiUi lose Do time tn?pcning this port to the irld in making it ft pert of entry. By doing so it would stroy the commcrce of Charleston and Sav.innah, two the most rf if.erab.a turhurs in tho world, rind make 18 the frew York of the Seuth. Aa immen y of Sea Island cotton, now ready fcr gin tg, is In tho vicinity of tfcw place, and doubt the government will take immediate session of It , although reports are coming in this after tn that tbo rebel* are burning it to prevent its tailing ,o our hands. The government should *eud at onae iops and supplies to tbU point and make an immediate ranee on Charleston an?l Savannah, and also make th If j o starting point t'f other expedition* extending furtlur | South. It is to be hoped that hereafter the beet steam en we have win be chartered on those oxpeditious to the South at this stormy season of the year, ?o as to put an end to this war as soon as possible. We hare several large steamships which can make tho trip weekly between New York and this placc, carrying three thousand troops and an immense cargo in perfect safety. For instance, the Vaorlorbllt, Ocean Queen, Atlantic, Constitution and otbers. Ihe loss of government property by those old steamers which were lost on this expedition would charter the same number of swift, seaworthy steamers, making two mile9 to their one; but while the red tape is carried to such aa extent by three outside chartering agents, the govern, ment will meet with serious losses. a heavy cannonading is now going on In the direction of Savannah, flencral Sherman and hi* staff have Just gone on board the steamer McClellaa to proceed to the scene of aotlon. The supposition li that Fort Pulaiki will be taken In a short time. If so, Savannah will be one* more In our possession, and the Stars and Strlpee will again wave triumphantly over those who for the last six months have polluted and trampled it In the dust. The reports of the hoittting of the black flag in Charles, ton an] Savannah is preposterous, as we have informa tion here to the contrary by contrabands, who arrive at this place dally from those cities. The families of the citizens of those places hare all left for the interior since the government lias taken this point. THE CAPTURE OP TYBEE ISLAND. TIB ItKBKt.

Sutherland, late Major in the United States Army, with the appointment of Paymaster, was found deud in bis room, at the Metropolitan Hotel, yesterday morning, under somewhat singular circumstances. Coroner Sohirmor held an inquest upon tho body, when tho following facts were elicited:? Deceased, it appeared, was put t<> bed on Friday night in a state of grow intoxication. At a quarter to one o'clock yesterday morUng tba night watchman of tho hotel observed the door of deceased s room open, and on looking into the bedroom he found Major Sutherland lying on the floor In a pool of blood. He immediately notified tho c!erk of the discovery, and a doctor was sent for, but when the physician arrived deceased waa found to be quite inanimate. Dr. Bouton made a post mortem examination of the bodv, and !'ouud several cuts abiut tho lace and head, and the 'uitb slightly congested. The physician gavo it as hit opinion thai death was caused by hemnrrhaga from the wounds in question, and that the injuries were probably p-o diiced by falling a number of times while under the in tluenco of liquor. The jury rendered a verdict in ac cordance with the above facig. Krom some letters which were found *.n possession of deceased it appeared that he was .illative of Philadelphia, aged thirty six years an 1 that his wife resided in Washitigti.il.

Jtasor., ?lidell and party . ar rested on British mall steamer, on mid-ocaan, by Lincoln steam frigate San Jacinto, and laden to Fortress Monroe. Thu above Intelligence is as startling as It was unex pected; and while we deep y deplore tho misfortune that has happened to our friends, this high handed Interfe rence with a British inail steamer by the Lincoln govern incnt, will eithor arouse John Bull to the hii;hen pitch of indignation, or ft will demonstrate that there has been an understanding between tho two governments for a longtime ? that England has been, and is now assisting, thu abolition government to the detriment of the South. Wo shall aivait turlher developemcnts with much in terest. TALK ON CHANGE. f From tho New Orleans Crcucont, Nov. IS. I Sa? unlay being the general day of settling, the flags < were psrliully deserted ut u very early bour. Tlie quid mines were few and far l>etwe?*n. Tho correspondence \ between a body of merchants in Liverpool aid Lord John { Rus-cll, an extract of which haw ben published, took, some f the habiluct of i he Dags by surprise. The { general feeling box prevailed (bat the British ministry would regark the restraint on the ox portalion of cotton as something worthy < f their imme diate attention, hut I. ord John coolly replies an muoh as to eay that it :s none of hia business. Although the stock of American cotton may be nearly ox haunted by the close >if next mont'i (December), it may as well be considered thai with the increase of receipts from Kast India, the nni<6 can be kept iu operation uiuier j short time until the flrat day of May next or later. Tbe demand lor goods fails off each succeeding week, and all tho British government can do to frustrate tho starving of t'oe millions of operatives who are dep tiding on cotton , is to conti .bute for ihoir su,>|>ort. In tho year 1 MX) tbe importation of cotton from tbe United Slates into Great Britain was 50.299 bales Ik 10 it had increased to UIO, 871. In 1*11 ihore was a slight increase. In 1812 war was declared by tbc United Stale* against Ureal Britain. and exporlatlons of cottcu ceased, and wore not resumed until tlie month of April, 1810. It will thus be seen that England got alony without American coLtoa for a space of time of nearly three years. Tho relative buarings of consumption are, or course, in favor of tho present era. There has been seme talk of entirely pretermitting tho planting of coltoa s?ed tbe noxt seeson; that it will be I ibe wisest policy for cotton fields to >>? turned into corn, wheat and potatoes. Then wo shall have a largo over production, and a complete surfeit of products, perishable In ibeir nature ? while cotton will maintain its own with out ueteriorntlou. A division of pl.ititing er raising can bo successfully earned out ? that Is, much less than usual can be planted , and cereals and esculent* in general be largely increased, also beaus and peas. Among tbe most unreasonable and unwise suggestions recently broached is that before tbe Legislature of Mississippi, to prohibit, by statute, any cotton seed from being planted until the present crop is (old. This reminds us of fudge and fldillo sttcka. THE NEW ORLEANS FLOATING BATTERY. [From the New OreansTrue Delta, Nov. 17.

We yesterday morning, in our telegraphic report#, gave a brief aceoont of the accident to the steamboat Francis Skiddy on the Hudson river, where she was run into by a ?loop, the disaster resulting in the death of two of the hands and the scalding and serious injury of seven others. We are now enabled to Rive some further particulars of this most diaastrons occurrence. The Francis Skidd y came into the port of New York yesterday afternoon at about four o'clock, working her eugines by the agency of three boiler?, which remain safo out of the usual four. When sho came into thu collision already mentioned , she wan struck in tho after part of the forward boiler by the main boom of the sloop, the xteara rushing into the fur nace, bursting the doors, and scalding tlu> passengers as before mentioned. The excitement oil board at tho time of tho disaster h moro easily imagined than de scribed; however, when the eitculol' tho damage was fully known, a comparative quiet prevailed. Ttiero was great excitement at Poughkeepsie when news of the accident arrived. At first many exaggerated and unreliable reports were current, but the fact of the case did not eventually warrant the rumors thus circulated. The facts, as gathered froin a person who was present, seein to bo that the Francis Skiddy had come up as far an Bluo Point, a couple of mile# south of Poughkeopslo, when a sloop was discovered to bo In dangeroi:s proximity. A collision was, evidently, unavoidable, and the boom of the stoop entered the kitchen w indow of the Sk.dd) , and tlieney into the boiler. Tho steam then rushed into the furnaee, bursting the furnace doors, and rushed therefrom with great force, scalding several of the deck hands and three or four passenger*. Aftor the psrjtenient had partially subsided, and the dead and wounded taken ea re or as well as circumstances would admit, the boom of the sloop was rut In two, and the Skiddy proceeded to Poughk' epsic. The sloop proved to be the W. \Y. Key uolds, of Ponghkeepsie, Captain M liar, loe. No one whs supposed to have been hurt on board of her. Oil the urrival of the Skiddy at tho Miln street pier, one dead man. Isaac liloomer, fireman, and two of the wnnnded were t.. ken into the Kxchange House. Robert Uardeo, who was also killed, and several of the wounded, were brought up the river by the Skiddy , which con tinued on her course, leaving there at ^ix o'clock jester day morning, alt r tl\e inquest whf held. Sevoral doctora were called, and they rendered every assistance in their power to the suffering once. Coroner llaight was notitledi and immediately summoned a jury . From the evidence giveu we extract tho following: ? Ha/zard Morey, being duly sworn, says : ? That he is ? pilot of the Francis Skiddy; \t#s at the wheel at the time of the accident; saw the tloop before we struck her; sho was about three ttmea the length of the steamer from us, as soon as 1 saw her I slowed, btopped and backed, and hove the wheel ovor to go to the windward of her ; in con' sequence of the glare of the light from the steamer and from the furnacc, and the sloop not showing n light, pre vented me from seeing her us soon us we otberwisewould have done; I did all 1 could to prevent the collision; I asked why they Aid not show a llpht', said they were under way; went down to sen tliu damage; I here saw a body lying in the tiro room; I have boen pilot of tne Francis Skiddy since March last; have been a steam boat pilot for twenty -four years; I could not have avoided a collision aftor I saw tho sloop; If they had shown a light before we came so near to them lit would have prevented the collision. Dr. Parker testified that Hardee came to his death by scalds and inhalation of steam , and that Bloomer waH much scalded and injured about thu mouth; ho must have died almost instantly. The jury rendered a verdict in accordance with tho above facts. Below wo give a correct list of the dead and scalded:? DKAP Isaac Bloomer, Marllboro, Ulster county. Robert Hardee, kitchen boy, (colored.) VABNCNGBBtj RCAt.DKI). Jiwiph Youngs, lloofatmtor Charles Stewart, Jlcriderocra. William Hudson, 1. ummondsvllle. fikjjmew scalded William Sullivan, M. niton.

We lesrn from a person Just from the Navy Yard that tho fire was <>|>enod from Fort Pickous upon tho Ooofede rata steamer Times, and was returned by our batteries and forts. The United States steamer Niagara is trying to cross tho bar for the purpose of entering the tiarlmr. Tbo excitement in the town ia immonse. Tho business bousna are closed, and the housetops are covered with an ex cited population. The (Untn-r of tho 23d has the following:? The firing, as wo stated yesterday, began from Fort l'ickons. Tlie whole of thoir fire during the morning waft directed at the steamer Times, but with very little effect. Tho Times came up lus>t night, and, with tho exception of two or three little holes made with rlflo shot, oho In un hurt. This chows that their guns are of very inferior quality, or that Colonel Jirown and his Yankees aro alt druulc ? very probably the latter. Tiio steamer Neliud was also in the engagement with the steamer Times, at tbo begiuniug of tlio tire. Only ouo idiot struck hor, an<l that did not do much damage. Tho Nolms went over to the mainland, and found the Florida regiment all right. In pacing Hilly Wilson's batterios ?tie gave them ? couple of shots, which were rulurued. Tho frigate Ni agara tried hard to come, but her rccvption was too warm and she liad to back out. The only logs of lii'o that we can learn of was that of a private of tho I/>uirtiaru regulars andUie wile of a sergeant of tho Marin ' c irps, both killed by shell lu the Navy Yard, a great many shot and shall fell In tho yard, but they (lid very little damage to tbo build lugs. Our guns were worked all day, and must have told with terrible effect upon the other vide. Tho greatest damage done was to one of tho ships, which ventured too near our batteries. THE UEM.1KMH OK THE EDITOR. The editor then proceeds with a tirade of abuse ugainHt Yankees in general and Colonol Urowu lit particular. He ?peaks of the latter an follows: ? But the meanest and most coutomptrble act was the execution oftho threat made K"in? time ago by that prince of hardened scoundrels, Harvey R, own, that bo would not respect hospitals. One shot was so will aimed at tho building that it went th ough it, but did no da mage. Tho baseness of this act placos this blackguard below the lowest cutthroat and vagabond of Now York. Tho account then continues ? At thirteen minutes to eleven o'clock this morning the flro reopene.d , and still continues at a very brisk rate. The people are not so much excited as yesterday, and wo cun see every app"arauce of u determination to resist to the last. extremity, if need be. But every one secrna to place unlimited confidence in our complete success. We hope the bombardment will now continue till the matter is settled. Hurrah for tho South.-n confederacy! flui - rah for a little more grape! Tho Montgomery Adartiaer of Nov. 124 says: ? For more than six months past the garrlflous at Fort Pick pdb and Penraeola have faced each other, making preparations for a desperate struggle, which might bo commenced at any moment. But the suspense in now over. Hie day k> long wished for by our gallant vo lunteers, who have been compelled to pass the summer In <y;mparalive inactivity in camp, ha* arrivod, and the Strength of the fortifluationB on oach side is likely to i>? fully tested before either party will acknow ? lodge defeat. The works erected by the Confede rate forces have doutitless been constructed with great skill aim care, and wo should think by this time that they are in condition to withstand the <v whined arsaults of the fort and Yankee fleet. This w ill b? no < hlld's play on eltli.r side. It will be no Hat torn* or Port Royal affair, "lbo Confederate* are too strongly Intrenched to entertain any idea of succumbing to anything like an o>iual force. How Ions the conte ;t n ill last uo one can toll; b it when it is announced there is a cessation of hostilities we hope to be able to announce tlmt the flag of the Confederate States waves over lbo walls of Fort Pickens. Tho Richmond Diipaich of the Ufj th says:? An official despatch dated Tu sday night, No\ timber 2fl, from tieneral ftrsurg, states that overything is quiet about Pensacola; that tho federal fleet keeps at a safe distance from hit; guns, aud that he is ful'y prepared for a ran wal of the fight.
