The Navy Department has also received despatches from Commodore Goldsborcugb, dated the 20th instant, ne had received the official accounts of tho visits of our vessels toKdonten and to the Curritnck canal, the latter being the popular designation pf the link of the Albemarlo and Chesapeake canal connecting North river with Currituck Sound. It appears the obstructions of this link were mostly tho work of the enemy. The lighthouse at Cape Hattoras may now be lighted with perfect safety. The names of the mcn-ofv. r destroycd by onr vessels since the fiest reached Hatteras Island are as follows The Sea Bird, flag steamer; the Curlew and the Fanny, steamers, and the Black Warrior, a schooner.

At half-past eight o'clock this morning we arrived olT the entrance of the harbor, and aTter a careful reconnoiasance we passed in, the L< ckwood in ad- j vance, to keep the large vessels informed from time to time of the depth of water in the chaune', or of the appearance of earthworks Off the hanks. At ten A. M. we had undisturbed possession oi the town. Part of a flying i artillery regiment, variously estimated at from one hundred to three hundred, fled precipitately without flring a shot. Vlaity or the inhabitants also left, in consequence, 1 was told, of a wide rumor having been put in circulation by the panic sir* ken enemy that our havoc was indiscriminate at Elizabeth. I was happy in being able to stigmatize such a roport, as it deserved, and to restore quiet to a very excited population. There are no fortifications at or in the water approaches to Kdonton. At Ilornblow's Point trcee liave been felled, possibly with a view to the construction of works. Among (be results of tbo expedition are the destruction uf eight cannon, und one schoonor, on the stocks at Edenton. We raptured two schooners In the Sonnd. ono loaded with four thousand bushels of corn. Wo also took six 'bales of cotton from the Custom Bouse wharf. There were no public stores in the town.

REPORT' OF THE EXPEDITION TO THE CHESAPEAKE AND ALBEMARLE CANAL. United Stubs Steamer I'MPERWRniR, \ Moi-m op North Rivrr, Feb. 14, 1K62. J Sir?On parting com|*ny with you at this place yesterday, I proceeded in the Lock wood, Acting Master Graves, accompanied hy the Sharisheen and Whitehead, towing ? couple or schooners, to the mouth of tbo Chesapeake and Albemarle canal. Unopcuit.g tiro reach of the river leading to the mouth of the canal, I discovered two small steamers and throe schooners, about a milo and a quarter up tiro canal, aud that the mouth of the canal was obstructed. Pickets stationed near the mouth fired their muskets to givo the alarm, and a large body of men, whose muskets glistened in the sunshine, got undercover at the point where thoso vessels were. I hmaodlately moved up within a couple or hundred yards of the mouth of tlie canal, until all the vessela grounded, and ordered the Whitehead to open tiro with er nine-inch guns. But three shells wore fired, when the whole hotly precipitately fled. Ou going on shorn I found that a schooner had been sunk about lifty yards within tbo mouth, supported by piles, logs, Ac., forming a complete barrier. 1 advanced a picket of fifteen men. under command of Acting Master OkTi'k fill lour or! bv tliA lnarhinijata of tlii* Tnninlsnn with crowbars, mauls, to. At the distance of half a mile a second row < f piles had bean driven. They worn at work on this when we surprised them. The alcamers and schooners bad left before we landed, but a One large dredging machine romained, and this we soon saw sink- 1 Ing. This sunk dlaginally across the caual. closing It entirely for tho passage of the smallest vessel, being say ! ten feat from one bank ami six from the other, lhe ' machinery waa entirely destroyed by the working party, the bnll above water burned and entirely consumed. A resident, named ?tone, having a store near this point, was Interrogated, and stated that the fofce near was the remnant of the Wise legion, commanded by Wise in person, and * numbering six hundred men. Captain Graves, with a i few men, followed tholr rear guard to the county bridge. , This la tho thoroughfare between Currttnck and the upper counties, and thoro was s battery of three guns ' eccd to command the oanal and main road. The guard I been removed. In their haste they left tho axes , used in destroying the dredging machine,some canteens, havsrsacka and clothing. In fact, as s contraband ds sorter from the legion at Elizabeth City told me, "ever I since that fight in Western Virginia, in which we lost five ( hundred men, wo havu been ruuniug all the time, and now they will never atop until they get to Rtciimood.'' ' I completed tho rebel w?rka by sinking five schooncjgin t the mouth of the oanal and burning all that remained above water. The work completed, I returned to this anchorage. I My thanks arc due to Acting Master Graves, sod Assist- 1 ant Engineer I*y, Acting Chief of the Louisiana, for tne complete manner in which my directions were carried out.

The miseion of our Joint expedition Is not to invad* any of your rights, but to assort tho authority Of the United flutes, and to close with you the desolating war brought upon your State by comparatively a few bad men In your midst.

Onr lieet consisted of the ironclad beats Cincinnati, r St. Louis, CUrondelct and Mound City, the wooden gunboat CoceOMna. throe transports, two mortar boats and two tugs. The morning was clear and bright. The sun shoot in beautiful lustra upon tho river, and upon the banks on either side, and viewed from the deck of tho forward vymul, the flotilla presented a very grand and imposing appearance. All on board had by this time oome fully to tbs con- ( elusion that onr destination was the vicinity of Columbus, and ear object hi going there a reounnoiagance in force. We pi nwplsd down the river at a good rata of spaed? about nims miles an hour? reaching LuCas Bendi at ten o'clock. We bad net steamed a mile below the bend when. wMe assay at uawese nspsny iooklag eui tat the l Columbue Bluflb, we were suddenly apprised bf their whereabouts by the report of the alarm gun?a blank shot fired by the enemy just as we rounded a point from which the smoke of our vesaeis revealed our approach. The order was given, on ascertaining the whereabouts of tho rebel battery. Tor all our guns to be prepared. Ou board of each of the iron clad vessels the men were piped to quartet*, imd earn everyplace of eanaoq in the fleet was raaaned aad loaded. About tea minutes after tho first report we hoard s second one, and this time on look- t tng toward the bin lb, we saw what appeared to bo a six- ? ty four pound ball dip into tbo water. " Our ggen scented anxious to begin tho oqntoat and nothing but a strict order from Captain Pa tiding prevented the crew of the St. Loots from making a response to the J second challenge of the enemy. We still kept near lag the poipt wbeaee the shots had come, when about fifteen I minutes later a third flash and a third report told ua that j we weieregarded as trespassers.

[Calro correspondence (Feb. 2SJ of the Chicago Time*.] 1 luformaUou had ltoen aci uuiulatiug here lor some * tvoeks that Cblumbus would be evacuated by tile rebel c troops,and, after repeated conferences with the author!- ? tics by parties who bail watched the movements, a reconnoist-anco was made a w eek ago by Colonel N. H. Uu- 1 ford, of the Twenty-seventh Illinois, the results of which satisfied tho authorities that there was something of a character to indicate that a change was going on at that rebel stronghold whirli might terminate In an evacuation. Our successes on the Tennessee and Cumberland , rivers tended ta strengthen thut belief. Colonel Boford, who has been in command of Fort Cairo for soute tuno Ct, and who has been closely watching events, b is n mainly instrumental in drawing the attention of tho authorities to this matter. From informal ion lie hail received, an armed reconnoissanco was made to day. ' The exjiedition got umlor way this morning at twenty i minutes post eight o'clock, and consisted of the gunboats Cincinnati, gj.. Louis, Carcndelel, Mound City anil Conestoga; aud tho fwefilr seventh Illinois, Col. Buiord, and Eighth Wisconsin, Col Murphy, regluicnts. Two MT> tar boats were towe.l down for the purpose of testing their capacity, If occasion should offer. The fleet steamad down the river as far of Fort Jefflarsoo, seven miles distant, w-ben the gunboats took the ad van eo, close after VMsn the mortar boats, aud followed by tho transports. Tho expedition was under tlic command ul Flag Officer Foots and General George W. t'nllnm. Colonel Thorn, engineer, a momber of Gen. Hulleck's s'afl, a'-mfnpanicd the Kx|>edlli< n. ' About ten o'clock a gun was board from Columbus, which was soon followed by two others. Half an liour after auolher gun was fired, as was sunp<Joo<l, for tho purpose of getliug range, as tno ball fell in Ihe water a considerable distance in G front of' the advance gunboat. Tho flrst shots were evidently signals for their gunboats to return to 1 Columbus, probably being some distance down Hie river. Tha last shot waerrutu a ne:ny gun iroui men batteries, or from a gunboat hidden from view.

He land, d In Un aa' lleml, at the residence of Dr. Kraucls, wbein he learned that wllhln the last week the rebels had scoured the river up as far ai they dared go, and ha<l seized all llatboats and skifTa, and taken them to Columbus. At ditlerent points niounteJ men, evidently rebel pickets, were soan, who suddenly disappeared in direction of Columbus. As the fleet moved very slow, tindoubtedly the rel>eU at Columbus knew of our approach before we were within ten miles of the placo. When going Into Lucas' Bend steam was shut o(T. and the whole fleet floated down, and had thus proceeded to within Ave milee or Columbus, when a steamer rounded the point from tbst piece, which prove! to be llw Red Rover, with a white flag floating from herjntk staff This waa a strange proceeding, coming from the Set>ast?pol of the Miaol?sippl, wbi< h was only monaco l by Are guu. boat* and two regiments of infantry. No one could give a solution of tha matter. ??? rtbtir at Cfiiai'mi had k-ntnforebem to into! tut ami defiant, and novo t> tend sip a Jlaa of truce when there vat ortly a pnttil.ililu of Itimj aitackid by an imnentely i^jedor fort* to their- , if uxit i it erpftcoNr. After some h ilf an hour's delay, aalcamtug wna aent off front the Flag Officer's boat to the Red Rover, which soon returned, bringing away soma rebel officers, vhen a ronrultalvm of near three hour* tcat held, at Ihr expiration which the rebel njicm were tet on board thoir own boat, which immediately returned lo ^blunibiii, and the Hatt (tfficer tignaled the/ted lo return. When the Red Rover bad arrived aa far up as she oame, a ?abel gunboat waa diacovarod coming out from behind Island No. 4, cloea to tha Kentucky shore, and under a Ml head of gteain made its way toward (blumbua. If It had been (leaned to fire at tha raliel, the flag of truce was in the way. Tha strictest secrecy Is enforced on what Tew persons ware admitted to the conference, nor will anything be . known ae to the object of the flag of truce until General ' Haileck it heard from, and probably General MeC'ltllan will be eonmlted. Undoubtedly, if the Red Rover came in with a Kan of trurn from tin- i abr-1 authorities, a Dm. position hss been made of so extraordinary character, I and General Cullutn did not feel authorised to set in tbs matter, and so will consult with bis superior. If this Is the case it may be some days before the public wilt know ( anything of l he matter. There are a variety of oplalons iu regard to what the 1 rebels are doing, the most reliable being that the place is about to be evacuated, and it is the most reasonable; . For Inning both forte Henry and Donelsun, and our guntioets penetrating so fhr Into the vitals of the rebellion as to reach Alabama and Mississippi without hardly any i ERAI opposition, have rendered it useless to hold Columbus any longer. Kentucky and Tonnes-see will both be rid of robot troops very soon, sad tbo robots no doubt wish to e vacua to and make terms, if thereby tliey can savo any of their valuable arms and ammunition. Another opinion is that the rebels are evacuating, and r that the citizens, supposing we would immediately attack the place, came up to state the fact and prevent, If possible, the place from being ruined. Others suppose that, to gain time for the purpose of moving their immense stores, oeunon, he., they cams with propositions to leeve Kentucky soil, which proposals would have to go to General Halleck to be acted 1 upon, and in the meantime they could make good their retreat. They may have made eueh a proposition in good faith. It ia iu keeping with their inaoleuce to make this latter propontion; but, if made, the deputation should . have been Instantly dismissed, with the hint that no 1 more perlying would be listenet to. Whatever wus the mis on of the flag of truce, it is a gnat satisfaction to know that Columbus rebels have treated or wish to make le:tna. They have bowed to Cairo a ihoiitirs, whom ilicy hate more bitterly than ftflV 0thr*r nrirf tan rtflho ITntan PhWnlpv ?.ao,.nm? a down, and lind to eendu Hag of truce to prevent what they ' supposed an immediate attack. Five gunboats, two regiments ol infautry, and a couple of mortar boat* have pc irod tho occuj nnta oftho best fortified placo ou the Mi*si?-' ppi river. if Columbus lias shown the whito leather tliv r?b?llioii is gone up, and, If it la |iosslblo to push on < in- eoinmas front every point, peace may be J looked for within a few months. If either of the reasons 1 have given was tlio object of the flag of truce, our whole rerre should have been left at least within two miles of the pluce to watch the enemy's movements. The troops were anxious for something to do, and the Twenty-seventa Illinois would have been glad to visit . again Belmont, their first battle ground, and to have shown their new friend*, the Eighth Wisconsin, over one of the most hotly contested battle fields of the war. As it was, they returned somewhat disappointed. Better luck next time. IMPORTANT FROM ARKANSAS. rhe Pursuit of Price and His j Retreating Army. rhe Union Troops in Possession of Fayetteville.
