2 flwopriety of the citisuua raising the national flag on For lit Mark, a surgestiou much the authorities acquiesced In cheerfully aud with alacrity. In flfteen minutes after the banner of the republic fluted guyly over the towers of Fort at. Mark, placed there by the Mayor of the city, Withes! a single federal officer or soldier being present to wituess ita ascendency. The victory was not the Iess complete because bloodless The citizens wore found to entertain the strongest Union soultim at, aud thav manifested, in everyway, Ituir joy on the restoration of the old hag on the place It had so long waved triumphantly, and they indicated, in morn wuys than one, their satisfaction and pie isure vor the supremacy of the Union arms. InsUort, they sri're very glad that tederal authority had driven out rebel malcontents from their city, a d thry felt more happy when they were assured that we should hereafter hold the place No better evidences of loyalty could have been manifested than those shown by the people f St. Augusiiue. and we are all satislled that they are houest and true in those expressions. A .ittie incident occurred while Captain Rod gets- end Mr Iteunia wore walking from the landing to the City Rail, which will illuatrate the dementod condition of the 'ebeU in the South. While engaged in vernation with the Mayor, as they were walking up the street, a lady appeared. and ad ireased Contain Jodeera in tha most excited and smeular banner. exclaiming'' Tin eowardly men have run hwuy from the eity, but," striking her bosom in the Meat frantic and m#!o dramatic style, " you will lind soma brave hearts awoag the women!" Her tragic attitude auc speech did not produce the effect intended, and Mie lady subsided. It proved to be no less a persona?, thin Mrs. Loring, wifo of the llr. I.oring who was killed by Or. Graham at the St. Nicholas Hotel some \ cars lince. Stie is the proprietor of the Planters' Hote. here' and, under the secession regune, is of considerable importance: but under tha new ordf- f things is looked upon as a harmless fanatic, and all <d to beat tbe ?' cot'on" in front and berate |loyal cituuus as much as she Chooses. After the interview between Captain Rodders bud the municipal authorities had terminated so latisfactnrily to both parties, tbe former assayed b roturn to the Wabash outside at about live 'clock. It was found impossiblo to cross the bar with safety, in consequence of the low state of the lide, and the party waa obliged to return here. On landin* , they preceded to the Magnolia House, kept by mine bust Major Buffinpton, a very clever fellow and an fait in keeping a lirst class hostelrie. There they found cum fori able quarters and enjoyed a good dinner off of wild turkey, bacon, corn bread,sausages, and "coffee,*' made Jrum sweet potatoes, cut in slices and parched like coffee, and ground like the "aromatic berry," from which they made a capital meal. They had no buttor, that boing a luxury long cut off by the blockade, and the salt on the table waa made on tbe oooking store of the hotel from lea water, and retained a little of ita bitter flavor. It arms white and clean, but not equal to common rock salt. Major Bulling ton showed his guests every attention, and made them as comfortable as they could have been at home. During ths evening the Major, accompanied by a D im ber of the moat prominent citizens of lb* city, called upon Captain Rodgers at the hotel, and epent the evening irith Mm in an agreeable and pleasant manner. TV most friendly sentiments were mutually expressed, and the serening passed pleasantly and quickly. As the Wabash's cutter's crew were unarmed, being an dor a flag of truce, Captain Rodgers suggested that it would he a proper precaution if the citizens should throw put| a picket or patrol on the main avenues or ap proech to the city, to guard against an attack or surprise. The suggestion was adopted, and a dozen of the teediag gentlemen of the eity armed tbomselves with muskets found in the (tort, and did picket duty during tba balance or the night faithfully and well. Is that not a good proof of loyalty and an evidence of good faith in deeds* On the following day Captain Rodgere and Mr. Dennis returned to the Wabash, greatly pleased at the evidences of a strong Union sentiment in the important city of St. Augustine. About eight hours before Captain Rodgors landed the twecempanies of rebel troops, called the "Blues," had decamped in boats, and had left for Smyrna?a village on the ooast, fifty miles eenth, where there are about seven hundred men. At Smyrna the steamers Cecil, I Carolina and another, which have done a flourtahing business in running the blockade with munitions of war, are reported as lying at anchor is the harbor. It Is said that there are immense quantities of munitions of War yet remaining at Smyrna, and I learned that the Commodore proposes to pay it aa early visit. But of that ore hereafter. A few guns were found ia St. Mark, unapiked and in erfect order. A small quantity of gunpowder of an info, rior quality was also found, but it is hardly good enough to lire ealulae with. h Vwv (tw af tha eitumi. mmn?r?ti??i? k.? I?rt Iowa.

Nothing of any 11 importance transpired on the trip.

Contrabands continue to s' arrive from the interior and mainland, and there are now cl in charge of the t'rovost at this poiut one hundred and Cl sixty?uu increase of some eighty in ten dav?. There m was one thing I noticed in looking through the nogroquar- ^ ters was, and that the contrabands congregated here w are of a far more intelligent class thau those I hare met in other places. Another thing, they are kept at work ^ and honce are more useful and valuable not only to 8 themselves, but also to the government. The contra T bauds are ot course in clover; that is to say, they 7' are perfectly happy to think they bava round as good I ia friends, and so pleasant a change in their life. Tbo tc idea of freedom is to them a happy condition! al although I cannot, for myself, look upon it in the l' same light. The fact is, a negro was never made for any- 11 thing else but a servant, and if we undertake to mak* ol them their own boss, and, as we flud them in Chatham h Canada West, and other portions of Canada, thev become P perfectly worthless. Colonel John Prince?for many year' K: a member of Parliamentfrom the Essex district. Canad a' Weat, a year ago in Parliament?remarked he never knew but one honest negro in his life, notwithstanding one ct sixth of his constituents were negroes. ' On our trip down from Hilton Head we had as a pri '' a Captain Henilu: ser, a native of the West Indie* 01 but who had resided for many years within four tniles of 01 St. Johns. He was taken on board the schooner Anna, by aT the United Slates steamer Uienvillo, some two weoks ag t0 His crew consisted of three other persons besides him self, and also a passenger named "Mack." His vessel's ,,J cargo was 12.0C0 bushels of salt, which cost in Nassau, X. P., ton cents per bushel, and was worth $2 iO nt Jacksonville. CI Arriving off this pla-e, we were hailed by a man run. re ning along the beach, with bis umbrella in hand. Gen. se Sherman ordered our steamer stopped, and a boat wag e\ sent on shore. Troops are stationed at this place at Mai- rt; pert Mills, which, I am glad to say, arc still standing? fr not burned. Our friend who hailed us appeared < ' to be the Catholic priest, named R. Cbambon, who was desirious of getting to Jacksonville. He was " taken on board and proceeded with us on bis trip. ,f The work of destruction may be seen the entire dia- <1 tance from the mouth of the St. Johns to Jacksonville. fa Tho destruction of property has beon great, and it is adis- Y grace to civilized warfare to think the animoeity of our ar Southern friends would so far extend as to destroy indis- so crimately the property of friends and foes. an St The Search After the America. no OCR JACKSONVILLE CORRESPONDENCE. til Jacksonville.

Proceeding a short distance further on the river, they found a large mill bad been destroyed,and rl? gome twenty five miles further on the Ellen got aground sii near where the yacht America was sunk. Thisfamocs 'h yacht has been lying at Jacksouvillo for some on months, in expectation of loading with cotton so and running the blockade. She was purchased in Eng- m land by some Southern gentlemen, who came over in m her. It is to be regretted that she should have been allowed to be put to ao contemptible a purpose as she was, a; but it is gratifying to know tbat she will be rescued from th the disgrace tbat would have attached to her. The yacht I* run up high and dry on the shore, scuttled; but will co bo got oil' without any serious injury to her. br The Ellen being bard aground, the steamer Darlington, ih with the launches, went in through Denvers I-ako to wl Haws creek, where, through the intelligence of a negro fai from Brooks' plantation, on Denvers Lake, who kn'w where the steamer was, after a run through barrow th hanneis, at times the einokepipe of the Darlington rei striking the overbauging boughs of tho trees, the long W( 'o i steamer was found. She is lying in some sixteen ah feet water, her bows run up on shore and her steam in ho the stream. She tnd been scuttled or ber outsort valves po opened, but it was thought there would be no difficulty -,h in getting ber ahoat again. gi The St. Marys Is an iron steamer, 172 feet loiig, an thirty-four feet beam, and nine feet depth of hold. She ya was built at Wilmingtlin, Del., and has been running be- co tween Savannah and Charleston, and also down the St. \f Johns river. so there are supposed to be five other steiroers?tbe Cor. ge Milton, Silver Creek, Hnttie Brock, and two others whose be names 1 could not learn?up in some of the creeks or tie rivulets tributary to tho St. Johns river. fa The steamer Darlington came down to-day, and returncd this alternoon with a large quantity of barrels, hega bt beads, he , to be used in taising the St. Marys and Ainc bi rlcn. ?h Lieut. Irwin, of the Wabash, was laft in charge of tb" in expedition to raise tba America, with the cutlets and id launchea from that ship and crews. de If all tbe steamers on the river can be found nc they will mske quite an addition to our Ce?t th of vessels und ho of grea' aid and assistance to our cause da They will at i n? e be put into requisition under < barge of m some of the naval officers and in a great measure relieve y< the gunboats of duties tbey are now engaged in.

They came ofT to the Flambeau, Lieutenant t\ pshur, commanding, wbilo ahe was lying oflf Charleston ? ?r. They had possessed themselves of a boat and put M it of the harbor at an early hour for sea: were discovered fi id picked up by the Flambeau. One of them is an in- sf iligent woman, who can read mid write, and a keen ob- la rrer. She reports having read in a late Charleston re iper the news or the capture by our forces of Island No. hi i. in the Mississippi, but gives us few details. n< Consternation is exhibitod throughout the city of aI larleston. in consequence of some intelligence they have iceivod. Nearly all the women and children have been 10 int to the back country. Goods and furniture, und -erything valuable removable, have been and are being 11 ished out of the city, to poiuts less exposed to a visit 01 om the Yankees. Many men are auxious to leave: but ley are all compelled to remain and to lake up arms to " fend the town, but all are very fearful that the result ill be disastrous to them. The news of the recent vie- rj iries of Union arms has bad a chilling influence upon w le chivalry, and they begin to doubt the truth of their " vorito axiom, that ono South Carolinian can whip Ave ta aukees. The relative abilities of a Yankee ana rcbol ,HI e beginning to look nearly equal, even to chivalry It- '1'1 If. The dashing fights in tho West, Bnrnside's brilliant id successful attack on Newborn, in a neighboring ate, and the capture of Beaufort, in the same State, id our operations In this department, where they ree as we advance, must satisfy them that we are not 1 cowards and boys. And I venture to say that the P? suits of the next thirty days in this department will 1)6 't strengthen their old opinions of us. Charleston is reported as being surrounded by two ies of intrenebments, one of which is within two miles, d the other about five mites from town. Thoy are of ,!l imcnse size, well constructed, and requiring a large *" rce to defend tbem. Very few guns have been mounted ion the works as yet; but the recent startling intelii- 1 nee has set them to work again, and they aro dauy an minting guns. * About six hundred men garrison Fort Sumter, and it i* ell prepared for a siege. That in about nil the news the turaoucjs orinj, excopr mat iney report provision* iry scarce and high, in consequence of the number of '1'1 Idiors in the town, nod the great difficulty in geiliog pplias from the back country. Affairs at Beaufort remain unchanged. The missions- r* ss sent out by tba National (?) l'rerdman's Society, are 1<N ill in tho village, enjoying themselves bmje'y. .some of cm have aertlod down on plantation--on tho island and 7,1 i ladies' Ieluud, where th?y are developing thornurcea or tho g>tl and institliug into the contrabands' ind valuable lessons on the universal brotherhood of mi an and the like. "k As I have not visited any of the plantations of these or ri< ulturisU, I am unable to report, to tba friends or e caune the results of their labors so far. Pu It is the general opinion of those competent to lornia rrect judgment, that a vast majority of the men pn ought out by Mr. Pierce arc perfectly incompetent for o positions they have assumed, uud that thuir career, lich will be brief, will bo marked by ignominois ss dure. Mr. Pierce, t understand, has a dim perception of how au e alliair will turn out, and I learn thai he proposes to 'v sign bia position and return North in a month or six r" ;eks, or as soon as a successor relieves him.

He has prepared ie of eorno length, and at the supper table, at the headlarters.did he read It to a large circle of the brothers ?d sisters, who were intensely gratified at its tone, ie delicate manner in which it complimented them all, M forgetting Mr. or Mrs. F., and at the astonishing iccess which the missionaries bad met with since their rrival, which had been but dimly roalizod before the >port was written. I intend to keep the public informed of their moveicnts, and shall fairly and justly attach credit or blame here it belongs. If Mr. French errs in his reports I shall ideavor to rectify the error, for which he will be very rstoful, undoubtedly, but I don't do it for that reason. No, Judge, I am above it." Smallpox prevails to an alarming extent among the agroes in Beaufort and on the island. There are now venty-flvo cases in thesmail pox hospital, under the ire or Dr. Waldock, of Boston, Mass , who camo out with r. Pierce. He is an able physician, and very successil in casos of that loathsome disoase. Having made a lecialty in this practice, to a certain extent, ho brings a rge exporionce and a thorough knowledge of its charter and the proper mode of treatment. He has lost ;t low cases. He is now engaged in racciualing tha groe?, and has already treated bolwen five hundred id fifty and six hundred men, women and children, s.-idessmall pox, the negroes aro afflicted with fevers > a greater extent than usual. Quite a number ive died, and the aick lists are increasing. :ie physicians attribute this great increase of sickness id mortality among tho blacks to the changu in the ud, quality and quantity of their food. A glance at leir regimen while under their masters and at work, and ie present, under quartermasters' care, will satisfy ever one that the present system is radically wrong, and ill result in killing all the contrabands, if continued, ie allowance to field hands, when working, on the plantioD3 South is one peck of corn (unground) and three uutls of meat?either pork, beef or bacon?per week, ie meat was not given to those not working. The neoe.-were then fat and healthy, and suffered comparably littlo from disease. Whan Captain Lilley took charge of the contrabands at aufort he allowed them the following articles, and in e quantity specified:?Fifty pounds of beef or pork, flye uuds of coffee, twenty pound* of rice, eight quarts of an?, three quarts of molasses, and Indian meal ad libim to the one hundred rations. Six children were enled to one ration. Rice and beans were issued ornately. Under that system the negroes lived better at ever before?had enough to eat, and were healthy d willing to work. Capt. Lillev had 606 negroes under i charge, and during the two months be controlled them :t live died, four of whom were children and the filth i old man who had parsed his eighty-first year. That a? the result of his system. On Ihe 20th of January Capt. Fuller took charge of the ntrabands, and began to issue full soldiers' rations to rh and everyone, counting children, and the conso"nce is the bills of mortality have increased to an irming extent, and the negroes are rapidly becoming jrthless and unable or indisposed to work. A soldier's t:oo is one pound and a quarter of beef or pork, elgbin ounces of bread, rice, beans, sugar, tnolassus, ap, randies, pepper, vinegar, salt, 4c., in proportion, iued in Ibo aggregate at forty cents per day. or r five hundred and fifty-six men. women and children, 40 per day. for rations alone. Capt. Lilley's rations iy be valued at $45 per day. or perhaps less. Vow, in e first place, there i? n?t a soldier in the army that can do's est his ration daily. No man can eat twelve >rd butcuite a day, besides his round and a half of rk or beef, his potatoes, 4c., furnished bim. Nor can e negro do it with safely. Nevertheless ho is glutton to est all bis pork and beef daily, i.nd is killing niself as rapidly as possible.

The contrabands appear to Ojoy the ch:tuge from hard masters to comparative lughry and indolence.

Moultrie and Castle I'inckney without molestation, arriving ou board the steamer Florida, which is d uug blockading duty at this (Mint, from whence they were transported to this place. From on* of the negroes, who appeared to be of groator intelligence thin is usually found among this class of humanity, I learned that there aro at presont some six hundred nieu in garrison at Fort Sumter, under command of Captain Calhoun, of Vlr" giuia, Captain Rhett and Major Wayne. Among the names of some of the other officer* the nogroea knew were Lieutenant Henry Sutton, Lieutenant Tompkins, lieutenant Battol, kc. At Moultrie there were throe hundred men, uud at Castle Pinckney there was one company of eighty men, under command of Captain Lata, formerly of the United States Army. The negro I got the greatest part of my information from was named Thomas Bamwoll, and he formerly belonged to Charles Bcaalin, of the Ordnance Department. He was in this place at the bombardment, and glvM a graphic description of the running away of the rcbela. Ho tolls me that Charleston is well Intrenched in the rear, the retools anticipating an attack from the main land, and that there are come thirty thousand troops in and around the cityNegroes, however, have but little knowledge nfnumbera, and their stories should be taken with grains of allowance. Nevovertheless, I think from the conversation I had with -'Tom," and bis general intelligence, that he is pretty correct. He gives some other information that it will not do for me to make public; but suffice it to say that the chivalry of South Carolina are evidently in a bad way, and are not acting as harmoniously as they did a year ago. The reverses they have received of late have greatly dampenod their ardor and enthusiasm. "Tom" heard his master and others talking of ths Newborn a flair, and says thero were some thousands of rebels killed there. Vessels continue to run the block" ado at Charleston, a steamer from England, with arms and ammunition, arriving there on the 10th. Escape of Two Rebel Deserters from For* Pulaski. Ol'B PORT ROYAL CORRESPONDENCE. Port Koyal, March 25, 1802. Iheir Statements?Strength of fort Pulaski?How It it Provisioned?A Savannah Infernal Machine?General Hunter Expectrd, dr., <?c. A couple of deserters escaped from Fort Pulaski on the 19th inst., and reported themselves to our forces on Jones'Island, in the Savannah river, about four miles above the fort. They report that, being considered perfectly sound on the secesh question, they obtained permission to go fishing. They got into the boat and pulled a short distance from the fort, and then put their oars in the boat and commenced fishing, the tide at that time running flood) or up the river. They allowed the boat to drill quietly up with the tide until they got, as they thought, far enough from the fort to enable them to make their escape before they were discovered and fired at, when they seized their oars and pulled for liberty. Brown and Cleeman are the names of ths two men. Thsy are both tiennaus. They report Colonel Oimstead as commander of th* rort. The garrison consists of three hundred and siztysight persons, all told. There is a German company aadan Irish company, whose term of service or enlistment dxpired in January. They are very anxious to be discharged and allowed to go home, but they are kept there by force, consequently are much disaffected; in fact, they give it as their opinion that there are not fifty men in the fort that are really loyal at heart for the rebel cause. The fort contains provisions and water for six months. Their communication with Savannah is effectually cut off. Ihey give the following as the calibre of the fort, vie:? Four tcu-inrh olumUiads, four twelve-inch mortars, two on (he ramparts and two on the ground in front of the Tort, two rilled twelve-pounders, and one rifled eightponndor, the balance of the guns are thirty twos and forty-twos. Total number of guns flfty-geven. The mugazino of the fori contains fifty thousand pounds of powder, besides sixty rounds for each gun. Tliey report that among tbe cargo brought by the Fingul?that succeeded iu running the blockade some months since?was five hundred and aixty infornal machine!, Tor destroying vessels. This is a specimen of tbe friendly feeling of England for tbe United States. Let our people remember this. Fearing that you had not been informod about tbe an. phibious machine building at Savannah for tbe purpose of raising the blockade, I will aay a few words about It. We learned by a deserter who came in from Savannah a few days ago, that a machine, or submerged vessel, to be propelled by two men, wis nearly ready at Savaanali> by which infernal machine were to be screwed to the bottoms of ships for tlinir de-trcction; but the inventor was killed, or rsiber drnwred, while experimenting with it. There is nothing of particular interest bare to write about. The newt that General Hunter Is coming bare to take command appears to give general satisfaction. The ditch-digging propensity of tho present commanding general, instead of making <rood soldiers out of his men by proper drilling and training, has been anything but agreeable or useful. The idea of immense fortifications to guard against a land attack by the rebels on an Island like this, when the rebels bav? not the means of reucblng It, particularly whlk so many of Com. Dupont's gunboats are about bora, tshibits a prurience and caution that I could norer have realized had I not seen It witb my own eyes. We all say welcome, General Hunter. I raw an ofQcer of the Kensington on ahore to-day. and from what be says about the condition of their engine atul rudder arrangements, together with the fact that she had not enough to reach Ship Island, (her destination,) It is evident somo one in the Boston Nary Yard is very much t > blame for neglect of duty, and the Navy I'epnrtmeol should inquiro into it. She is now detainod hero for coal; and. from what I can learn, the blockade si oon be raised for want of that very necessary artic The steamer Sachem arrived here to-lay, bound South; also the stormhip Reie ise. On the night of tbo Jlst inst. a seaman of the Susqns" henna, named t.eorge W. Collin.', of Kent county, Dcla ware, was shot while on picket duty on Jones' Island, by one of (Jonoial Viola's pickets, supposing him to be a rebel.

Emily St. Pierrt?Etraped Contrn!Kinds?lh> HAjrl Troojn, <#> 1 have just had a chat with at) olllcer of the Flambeau, and learned she is just from Charleston, having on board the crew of the ship Kmtly St. Pierre, captured off Charleston a few days sines by the Augusta. She Is from Calcutta, and loaded with sacking, or bagging, for c itton bales. Her papers, and other cir< umstaaces connected with her, will make it eery easy for the courts to con dsmn her. I tie K1 imboan has on board several contrabands that escatied fn lit ( haiteiton ve'terdav. coo of which is a young woman. They give I ho billowing information, v>x:?That on the 10th Inst. tire iron steamer iVxnmarce, from Kngland. aitccerded in rnnnug the blockade, and arrivfd in ""harleaton. Il?r -ergo :ous sted of blankets, shoes, boots, cloth* and mnnitlona of war. tin tho loth some other vsrel, who?e name 1 forget, arrived at Charlefton from the tVaet Indies. On the d.ld the steamer Cahnwba, from Kngland, alao a pilot boat, from NuMau, arrived,and tbey are locking dally for the a' rival of the Bermuda. All vessels are loading with cotton . alao the ship Mackinaw and a bark. The two latter are ready, with their topgallant yanla serosa, and will pop out some dark or stormy night and go on their way rejoicing. H atrjkea me, from what I ran learn from t-avy officers that I have talked with on the gubject, that our steomera lay loo far ofr from the rn trance to the varioug channels, and that upon the slightest appearance of a little wind tliny fancy a severe gala is coming od,and they put to sea and got too farolT. Therefore, the rascals have a chance to get out and leave. They are endeavoring to build an iron-plated ataamer I# Charleston. Concerts, fairs and various othar means, besi'lea Pegging even of tho slaves to raise money to enable the in to accomplish the work, are being resorted to. Thay aav then they can rsiso the blockade: but thoro need be no fears of that, as the only ship Urn rebels huvo is tho Merrlmno which cm contend successfully with wooden na\y built steamers, nor can they build any within the next twelve months. The rebel p?i>cr3 say thai twelve men were killed eu I the Morruuac, and that ?h? was sent bock iustiiukiig condition. There la u large force el Georgetown, thoy fearing en st'ack from that quarter; also troops betweou Savannah end Charleston, 011 the line of the railroad. Charleston has two linos of intrenebmeuts around it, bctwoen the Ashley and Cooper rivers? one live miles out, the other two naive from the city. James Island has a large forco <>u it with considerable earthworks. The only armed vessels in Charleston consist of two small sieamtugg. Two companies of North Caroliau troi pa arrived in Charleston tho other day, and, beiug hungry, mude for the bilkers' shops. They presented North Carolina shinplasters which would not bo received. I The soldiers kept the bread, and a row wna Iho corgV queues. The nest day the troops wero sunt buck to Until own State. Provisions are frightfully high priced. Tea four dollars a pound, ooflVe three dollars, matches one cent apiece, and ether things in proportion. The people are ail ready to leave the city in case oi an attack; and soma even go so far as to say, that if il was not for beiug laughed at, they would bo willing to give up the city, or, in other words, lay down their arms A fight took place in Fort Moultrie between two officers, growing out of a difference of opinion as to whether the Hessians could take Charleston or not. One suid it could not bo done, while the other asserted that before long we would have Charleston and .Savannah both. Tho bark llaseltine arrived here yesterday, with government storee, from Boeton.
