St. Loi'is, March 21, 1862. The Republican has a special despatch, (lated Island No. 10, yesterday, which says that cuunouading by the gui and mortar boats continued all day Wednesday. All the guns but one in the upper battery on the TenMUM* Shore hare been silenced, and one gun on the island dismounted. Shells from the mortars are constantly falling in tbo rebel camps and batteries, and numbers of the killed and wounded are being carried away on litters. A large number of loaded wagons are leaving thoTen" Meaee shore, from which it is believed the rebels aro making preparations for an evacuation of their works. The floating battery of the rebels has been moved Marer the Island. General Popo allowed a rebel gunboat to approach Within fifty yards of a masked battery on Tuesday, and then sunk her, kiling fifteen of those on board. lie had previously allowed five rebel stoamers to pass on towards New Madrid, and they are now between his batteries, unAble to escape. Over a dozen rebel vessels, their floating battery and battering ram, are now above General Pope's batteries, ad will be sunk or captured. Cairo, March 21,1862. A correspondent who left Island No. 10 yesterday, ays:? Firing is only moderate from the Benton and Mound Gtty at Intervals of fifteen minutos each, the object being to reduce the upper batteries. Five guns wero dismounted and two left, from which Occasionally shots are (Ire 1. Somo of them come very Mar our boats. The worka on both the main land and Wand are far more extensive than was generally supposed. There are at least eighty guns, many of Miem of the largest size, several of them rifled, and twenty thousand troops. I saw at one time ten regiments on dress pa fade on the main land. Their quarters aro out of reach of the mortars. The island is pretty well covored with tents. Our shslts reach all parts of the works on the Wand. It is svldsnt that all ths rebel batteries have bombproof casemates, as the men can bo seen to disappear When a shell falls Into the batteries. / As soon as ths upper fort ts reduced, the guntftials wil1 /advance, and talse the others in dotail. On Tuesday night the Mound CUy kept up a toady Ire on the upper fort, peevoaimg the rebels from makin* their usual nightly solute*.

She la Major General Grant's headquarters. Wash. Graham (of Zanesvllls, Ohio), Commodore of tbo transports, Is called aboard, and the Tigress moves down toward Kort Henry again. Just as she gets under headway, somebody with stars on his shoulders hails her from anuthor boat, and, on rounding to, General Sherman, of Ohio, looking better than you have ever seen him before, calls from the hurricane deck lor Gonoral Grant, and asks for another battery. "You shall have it," is tbo reply, and in a moment tho written order is sent across. The Leonora steams up, with gay bunting Muttering at the jackstaBj and Mi^jor General Smith, commander of the forces in the Bold, comes over to headquarters for further instructions. General Grant, very sober still over his recent advices from Washington, holds a hurriod consultation with him, to which General Totteu is also invited. Commodoro Graham is called on, despatches are sent to Taducah for fifteen more transports, and General Grant's and GeneralSmtth's boats both start up again toward the burnt bridge on tbe Memphis and Bowling Green Kailroad. The wind blows fresh from tho south and the steamers make slow progress. And so, with mllnituds of bustle and some real progress, the day passes. NIGHTFALL ON THB R1VKR. Night folds hor wings over the scoue. Tho air, still musty with the fat coal smoke, darkens the moonlight that reveals but does not define the continued movemenls. From tho woods corns tho gloamtnps of hundreds 1 or camp ttreB, mo river nanus swarm wnn soiu.ors, a lew steamers posh s'owly out and bead up the stream, the \ lights from their furnaces shaking Id wavy linos across , the current,and planning with chauginghues from every ripple. Tho sentries paco their beats around the buggngoy awaiting shipment on tho banks ; bugle calls sound uuC fi oin the distant camps ; and tho hum of a great city llUg the ears. For hero, iu this almost uninhabited district of Tcuuessoo, there has cotno suddenly in a population greator than that of Cleveland, or Columbus, or Dayton. And stlil the wind blows from tho South. Sit/auburn. March 10, 186a. df.lay8 in emiiahkino. Vroxpectcd delays have occurred, and many of tho boats are still ouly "preparing" to move to tho appointed rendezvous. The extraordinary height of the river rondors landing very difficult, and it is only at a few points that boats of the larger size can get over the ordi 1 nary banks, and out far enough in the shallow water on the bottoms, to reach the dry laud from which artillery , and baggago must bo shipped, floats also are wanting, and of those orderod tip from l'aducah yesterday by tele graph only a few have yet arrived. The work of embarking tho forces proceeds slowly. Too many othcers, instead of superintending and pressing forwurd tho work, are to be found playing euchro, or i mokhig cigars in tho ladies' cabin. .Vuturally enough, the soldiers, loft to themselves, dovoto and spend treble time in doing thoir work. Jack Williums (Captain Jack Williams, of the lato Gen. Iatudcr's body guard), would have gut a regiment, baggage and all. aboard, in tho I me rpent hero rupoutodly to-day with a company.

A dozen such cases have recurred to-day, uiuply illustrating the oil proposition,that half tho teamsters and wngoumas'ers ill the army display less 8"use than the animals they . drive. --V We aro not left without reminders that we are in an 1 enemy's country. lioyoud the burned bridge on the I MeriK'h s branch of the Louisville and Nashville Railroad two or three of our pickets were surrounded and carried off by a squad of rebel cavalry iaat ui^lit. This morning a number of the loaded transients went up there. Last night we had a heavy storm of wiud and rain. This morning it was c Id uud gloomy, but befoie noon the s .n came out, and the afternoon has been warm and pleasant. I'he poor fellows bivouacking on tho hill sides or en hurricane decks relish the change. Thore is now some prospect that we may get off in tho night. March 11, 1862. The expedition is st last under weigh. Generals Wallace's arid VlcCleruand's diva-ions rondo/roused at the burned bridge on the Msagplns branch si um Liuisvhle and Nushvue* Railroad yo.-tord?y, and i'arted up the river. Ik.ring ilw night ami tins momiug the other divisions got off Sonic six or ctghs regimenrs, however, have not yet embarked, and I hear of firge numbers or boats and troope stiil to come up. UOW THE LIKE WAS KEPT IN. As tho boats went howling merrily along this morning by tlie burned bridge, the decks swarming wrth blue coats, and the bamHthugiug cmr the bid national airs, line stretching out of sight, up and down the river, and marked the smoke curling upfront behind bcuu* utiles ahead, tho magnitude of the ex|?dilion became apparent , and hopes beat high for a movement so auspiciously begun. The men were crowded thickly on tho guards, Ikiws and hurricane deck, and iu moat of the boats tho cabins were also so full that walking through them was well nigh impossible. Watching the boats passing one another, comparing their relative speed and boasting of the favorites, was tine work for a time, but this became tiresome, and soon there was nothing left for it but to fall back on the soldiers' employments?smoking and eating. For the latter there was sin.ill opportunity. Officers, by dtnt of abundant patience, secured tolerable meals at iiitolerabio prices from tho stewards ot the boats. Privates found sutler shops opeued en the hurricane decks, and for a time gorged themselves with choesc, ginger bread aud bologna sausage; but tho supply soon gave out, snd tlicy were forced to tall bock on hard bread und pickled pork, Some of lite boats slopped for the men to go ashore and coos their rations?a pririlego that was highly appreciated. Others had to bring out their little stoves ami make such shift as they could at frying their pork and toasting their hard bread on tbe decks. SCENERY VP THE lllVEB. The banks grew a little higher as we proceeded up the river, but the snuio Icaliess, dreary looking forests lined them mi either side. Occasionally a picturesque scone was passed, but in tho muiu it is hard to Gud much to admire in the scenery of a wide ditch tilled with muddy water. At diltcreut points something like piles of cord wood was noticed on the eastern shore, but examination showed it to be pig iron from tbe iron furua< eg back in tho hills. WELCOME. frame house would bo seen, but nearly all the dwellings were of the meanest sort, slavo buts and log cabins inhabited by the "poor while trash.'' A few bore white (lags; trom others the national colors wore display est. while men, women unit children indulged in the n>?t extraordinary antics of ilebght ssthe boats went by. 'lhu negroes wore partlculorly inbilaut. Au obi white w.silled ucgresH fa.rly dnoocd with delight, sw inging her arms, wielding her isitnleroua feet in a way that iniisl have seemeil particularly dungerous to her neighbors, and shouting "Glory, glory, do Yankees Is comm' w id nil do boats in do world,and de gunboats, tool" Anullior undertook a jig with a fat biby in Iter arms; and anotuor could tind no other way of expressing lier delight except by stretching out her gre.it black arms, leaning forward toward us, aud drawing in hor arms again, as if to include us ail .In one general embrace?a gesture thai sho kept repeating till we passed out of sight. The white people were less demonstrative, but in the main their gratification at our appearmoo was manifest. WltAT THE ENEMY MIOUT HAVE DONE. Pilots were a little uneasy. The Memphis papers had nmisldy suggested that sharpshooters -b mid be sont out to pick them olT, aud every mite's advance ahowod how easily the plan could lie carried out. There were lories, too, ihat some of tho earlier be ills had be'n bred at In the vicinity of tho mouth ofDutk river,aud it waa known that the country was tilled with straggling bands of rebels, and easily accessible to theui at an/ point along tho wiesteru shore.

The report of the Judiciary Committee of the House on the censorship of the press has been the subject of much comment, particularly In reportorial circles. It la well known that the committee have sup prfBDOU DVUiO VI buy Uluak luipvi M?U? wrtiuivnj gi?vu before them, and that their report is far from being impartial. Ihey have stepped aside from their duties to censure the gentleman as Censor, when all the blame attributed to him belonged elsewhere. The committee have omitted from their report the evidence that the authors of the complaint against the censorship of the press had for some time been exempted from its operation by a special order, and laid the complaint only when they were reduced to the common level by the transfer of the superintendence of the censorship to another branch of ths government. There is much more in this censorship of the press than has been as yot exposed: and, when some honest investigating committee shall compare the report of the Judiciary Committee with the testimony adduced before them, their report will be tho subject of mingled ridicule and indignation. They have suppressed the fact that they elicited from tho Censor fuels which not only relieve him from all ceusuro,but place bis prmcipal accusers in a most unenviable position. These facts wlllbe brought to light. This is tho period for investigating committees, and Beau Hickman's Kitchen Garden Cummltteo sadly needs investigation. His report is more open to it than the censorship. While the censorship of the press has been inexorably enforced in reference to telegrams to the leading metropolitan newsjiaperft, until now there has been no restriction upon the communication of the war news by o(Beers and soldiers in the army to any of the country press. An order has been issued peremptorily forbidding letters of this character to be sent from any of the cam pp. This will prcbnhly prevent tho friends of the soldiers of the army of the Potomac from hearing from thorn when important movements are in progress.

Tho discussions on the Tax bill in the House to-day would have alforded considerable amusement to spectators if they could have forgotten the Importance of tho measure to the country?tho absolute necessity of providing speedily a revenue to meet the exhausted demands upon oor treasury. Some of the members try to be vory facetious over tho whiskey soctions, and others are very disputative; a vast amount of pettib gging is done in be. half of the various interests involved. The statesmen who engage in the debates speak often of the effects of certain sections upon their constituents, but seldom of the country's great need of money. Pel gallons continue to arrive for the purpose of appear.ng before the committee ami proving to them that particular articles in their line ought not to be taxed. Ihc broker* and bankers had a tx nring to-day, and asked for a revision of section sixtytwo in their favor; but the Pennsylvania and Kentucky members <tb< ieed it outrageous that there slioukl be any remission of taxes upou money trading while such necea* series of life lis whiskey and tehacco ore mulcted heavilyThe cliampioo billiard players have taken the cue, and have oomc here to get the license for tables curtailedThe Committee expect a delegation of ladies next week, to obtain u induction of the proposed taxation of pins, I?ra(K)ls and hooped skirts TRADE WITH THE KJBSTORED EOKTS.
