We left our anchorage at Annapolis on Thnrsday, the #th, and, after a protracted paaeage, owing to deoae foga, arrived at Fortran Monroe on Friday Bight, at twelve o'clock. Leaving Fortran Monroe on Saturday, at ten In the morning, wo proceeded at once to an, but, owing to foga on 8unday night, our progress wn very slow. On Monday, the 13th, the waatber cleared, with a baavy wind and a rough aea, which gauaod our vesaela to labor very heavily, and aome were obliged to cut looee from the veaaela they were towing. Moat of them, however, paaaed over the bar, and anchor ed tnaide the harbor about twelve o'clock noon on the 1Mb,Juat In time to escape the aevere gale of Monday night end Tuesday. Ike propeller New York ran on the bar at the entrance to the harbor, and, owing to the severe weather and want of email boats, we coald render her no assistance. She was laden with stores, and was lost.

He adds that he would commence that day to build a wharf for landing supplies. The men I were cheerful and patient, sad he would proceed with ooatdence. An accident occurred in an effort to relieve the steamer New York, by which a boat was swamped,and the lives of Op tonal Allen, of tbo Ninth New Jersey, his surgeon and a mate of the boat were lost. After the arrival of tho expedition at Hattteras, the enemy made their appearance m one or two vessels, ou a reeonnoitering expedition. Our boats gave chase and drove them back. The Uraasports and vessels grounded will be got off by the aid of the tugboats. Only one, the New York, was lost, and no lives, the three above referred to exceptedThe Report of the Special Messenger from the Expedition. WAsnmtiro.v, Jan. 28, 1882. The following details In relation to the Bnrnside cxpe dition are furnished by Mr. Sheldon, the bearer of despatches from General Bnrnside to the War Department. On Monday, the 13th of January, tho leading vessels of the fleet anchored In Hatteras Inlet, but a gale from the northeast prevented the others from entering. They round a safe anchorage outside. Inside of the inlat the swiftness of the current and the limited space caused some colllaions, although the ateemers had two auchois out and kept steam up. The screw steamer New York grounded on the outer bar while wailing for a pilot, and proved a total loss. One of the gunboats was staved by her anchor, and eunk in 'h*llow water. Her cargo war aavad. On tbe 14th the gale continued, making communication between the vesselsalmost inpossible. Colonel Allen end the surgeon of a New Jersey regiment were drowned by the upsetting of a surf boat. On the 14th the gale Increased; several of the steamers took the ground in the harbor. A transport schooner went ashore on the outer bar, but was finally towed in. Five transport ships remained outside. The 17th was foggy, but sufficiently calm to enable some work to be done. A number of schooners and ono 'learner arrived, one or two steamers wsre got off', and ethers took tho ground in their place. The ltlh the fog wee very dense. Three small steamsrs and a gunboat were bnsily employed ia tugging at ihe larger vessels and in lightening their draft. The most efltairni boat in tha fleet is the stern wheel si earner drawing two feet. The IPtii was fuggy. The Prcabontas was lost on the beauh near l.oggerhead Inlet Twenty.four horses saved out of ninety. The rest of the cargo, consisting princi pally of Torsge, was lest The horses were landed, aud several vesdols towed over the bulkhead. The 20th aud the 21st?tha first really fine days?sevn. ralvassel.i were takon successfully ovsr tho bulkhead. Two ships were towed in from outside, and the Twenty, fourth Massachusetts landed, with tents aud camp equipage, to lighten the steamer Guide for her passage over tha bulkhead. On the 22d tha Guide attempted to go over, assisted by twe steamers; though only drawing seven feet eight laches, she atrnck. A violent northeast gale then put a stop to all work.

Nothing has occurred to Intetrere with the success of I he uipedlil'in except the delay caused by the high winds and a current which rune five miles an hour, making communication difficult and dangerous.

We are indebted In Rr A Pawling*, the only paradi' per except Mr. Sheldon, the government mc?*cnger for the above (tatemeat*. Th* Eaatera Flat* left Hatteraa Inlet la*t night (Fun day, Jan. M), and arrived here late thiaafternoon Tha recent atom* were uauaualif far ere at Hitter** :e ne ml considerably delayed the expedition, bo I when the iastern State left everything looked favorable. The expedition nailed from Hampton Road* on the 11th end 12U> of January, and constated of over one hundred and twenty-live vessels of all classes. They arrived at Hat terse between the 12th and 17th instant, having been greatly retarded by the etorma and adverse winds which prevailed daring that time. After their arrival at Hatterae they experienced a series of storms of such severity that for two day* In sue cession, on more than one occasion, it was impossible to bold any communication between any two veaeele of the Ami. After the first storm tt was discovered that, instead ' vessels drawing eight and a half fest of water being able to go go over the swash, or bars, as General Burnside had beeo informed, no vessel drawing over seven feet three inches could pass into Pamlico Sound. No vessel either could pass outside the bar drawing over thirteen feet of water, unless very skilfully piloted, consequently the steamer New York, on the 18th inst., struck on the out aide of the bar. the New York was loaded with a cargo valued at two hundred thnnsesrt doners, consisting of powder, rliies and bombs, and proved a total loss. The captain and crew, after bravely remaining in the rigging for forty hours, were saved. 1 he gunboat Souave dragged her anchors, had a hole stove in her bottom, and sunk. She is a total loss. Bsr crew and guns were saved. The steamer Pocahontas went ashore on the 17th inst., near the lighthouse, and became a total wreck. Ninety valuable horses belonging to the Rhode Island battery were on board of bor, and were nearly all drowned, including several valued at five hundred dollars each. TheGrapeshot, in tow of the New Brunswick, parted her bawser and went down. The crew wero saved. An unknown schooner loaded with oats, and another schooner, name unknown, and six of her crow, were also lost on the beach. The steamor Louisiana struck on the bar, where she still remains. The report of her having been burned is njunijf ir.ourreci. one may get on. Th? Kaatern Queen and the Volttgeur are also ashore Tbo Utter will probably get off. The water vessels attached to the expedition had not reached their deatinatton when the Eastern State left; and had it not been for the condenser* on board some or the reseats and a vessel on shore, the most terrible euf faring* most have occurred among the troops. As it was the water casks were composed of old whiskey, camphene and kerosene oil casks. It is thought that the Union pilots of Hatteras have proved traitors, having intentionally run several vessels ashore. The current was running at the rata of five miles an hour, and the chop seas prevented General Burnside from answering any signals of distress or communicating with bis generals. At one moment flags would appear with Union down on a number of vessels, indicating want of water, coal and provisions, and then would be lost from view. Colonel Allen, of the Ninth New Jersey regiment, and hU surgeon, Weller, with a boat's crew and the second mate of the Anne E. Thompson, when they found that the troop* needed water, manned a lifeboat in order to reach the General and obtain It. Unfortunately the boat | swamped, and the Colonel, Surgeon and mate were The large transports with troops remained outside the j bar until the arrival of the S. R. Spaulding from Port Royal on the 23d, when Captain Howes volunteered to bring them all inside. This was aocompltsbed on Sunday afternoon, the Eastern State paastog the last of them as she left. Fair weather bad sent in. and the schooners of the expedition are mating their appearance with water, ooal and provisions, and everything looked more promising. General Burnside left Fortress Monroe on the Picket, but subsequently took possession of the Spaulding, which he will occupy as his flagship. She will also bo used lor taking tbs remaining troops over the har. The only troops that have been landed ara the Tweniy. fourth Massachusetts regiment and the Rhode Island buttery. Colonel Hawkins' regiment goes with the liurn. side ei|>edilion, and (their place is to be filled by the Sixth Xuw Hampshire regiment. There has been go loss of life excent what ia above mentioned. Kleven deaths of aoldiera have occurred sinoe the Oeet Hailed. Different rejwtH are received at lla'let an from the *ur rounding population in relatioa to the disposition and intentions of the enemy. Some who ronie in sa.v that the rebels are completely frightened, and will not make a aland. Another report is, that large masses of troops will be concentrated In the vicinity; and still another story, confirmed by many, u that their exertions will be directed chiefly to placmg obstacles in the way of our progress to Norfolk.
