It is bolievod at headquarter?, here that the reports .hitherto received in regard to the buttle between Gouernj Bosccrans and Floyd are exaggt-ravons. It appears tluit .Floyd was firing for twelve houri:.upon Rosocrani' camp without injuring a single man. There lias, however# 'been no contradiction of the ropett that Generals B<nham ?n I Schoack had gone to the roar -of Floyd's army and .'hemmed it in. jUBIVAIs OF COL. HAWKINS? ARTA1RS AT HATTERA8 INLET. Col U.vwkins , commandcr ut FortjHatteras, arrived here 40-day. ,}le represents that the exposed position of the fort r?ndors it almost untenable during such storms as ttat which recently swept the coast. He neks that the Areops there may be seat back te Fortress Monroe, or (be works be put in a oocdltiou to af 'ord safety from the overflows upon such oocaaions. A portion of the fort and the frame fheds ttoctqd for the protection of tho troops and stores were waehed away, and a large amount or stores destroyed, ?nd four gentries of the Twentieth Indiana regiment were drowned anAho breakers during tho gale. The whole place was submerged to fue.h an extent that the troops wene compelled to abandon the fort and retire two.mlies up the beach. On Sunday Ave rebel gunboats made an attack upon the Union troops, but after tiring three shots retired juat os tie steamer Helvidoro hove in sight. It is presumed they tho. t'JUt the steamer was only in advance of the great naval expedition. THE NAVIGATION OF THE LOWER POTOMAC ? MORE REBEL BATTERIES ? I>KSTlTl'TION IN VIRGINIA.

Tho Stepping Stones brought hither six contrabands, who woro picked up by the tug Bailoy in the Lower Potomac They had escaitod from Northumberland county , Virginia, in a dug out, landed at Point lookout, and It is evident from tho.r statements that they luul plauued tlieir escape long since. Tho Island Belle had fourteen contrabands on board at Cedar Point , and about til ty wero.sont to Old Point a shi rt ' time siuco from the llitilla.

Judging from observation aul report, your correspondent believes liitn Ui l>e an engineer of rnnk in tho rebel ariny. The sigi al corps of this division is fast becoming an indis|iensable military auxiliary. Of its extent and usefulness it may perhaps bo Improjier to speak fuliy at this time. Yesterday signals were discerned and read at this station to a distance of forty miles in an air line, bo pure was the atmospheric medium. Lieut. W. \V. Rowley, of the Twenty-eighth New York Volunteers, has been appointed Assistant Superintendent, and Lieut. F. R. shattuck, of the Massachusetts Twelfth, Q artermx?ter of this division.

Five rebel steamers camo near tlio lnlot yesterday, but retired after firing a couple of gi.ns. Lioutorant W. H.

Two coal schooners, carrying fuel to the fleet, made Hatteras Inlet during the gale, an I hoisted the signal of distress, but could not be reached by the vessels inside. THE ENGAGEMENT BETWEEN THE REBEL STEAMER CURLEW AND TIIE UNION BAT TERIES. Thrrcport of Captain Hunter, of the rebel steamer Cur. lew, ?f the engagement between himself and tho I'uion buttet ies at llattorss, reminds us uf the famous report of Captain Hoilins, and is equally true. In It he states that "he sighted his rifled gun at the Harriet Lane." The Harriet Lane is not anywhoro near llatteras, being at present flag ship of tho Pototnao flotilla. Again , he says that be came within easy range. A person who was pre sent at the time, informs us thai tiic Curlew did not ven ture within nearly four m of tho batteries, and that hor sl.ot fell short about one mile and a half. So much for tbo report of Captain Hunter. THE NAVAL EXPEDITION. Wabrngtoii, Nov. 0, 1861.

On the ,ev(?*;g of the day that ordere wore received for tbo omtwtrkaiiaa of the fourteen regi minis encamped hore, I joined a small persty to go. down through th? Navy Yard <? to a sort of pieri to get a better viow of tlio interesting scenes trans piring in the harbor. Au oT.cer of the Allegany, the re ceiying ship stationed l.ere, observing ub, immediately sent a boat to row us about tike harbor. Nothing could be more animating and Impressive than the some. Twenty transports, many of them large ocean steamers, were scattered about the harbor or lying in full view in theofllng. The smaller ones were passing and repassing! as they came up to the wharf to receive their living freight, nnd then steamed otf to transfer their burden to the larger ones, Tho air was vocal with tho frantic cheers ol' tbo soldiers au;l tbo stirring strains or ??

Our attention was for some time so fully occupiod with what was trnnsplr.r g around us that we bid failed to notice tho magnilkeuce of the heavens. The air was warm as on a July ni.<ht. The vault above us, blue and calm, was cloudless, but over tbo sun had gathered a cloud use enough to conceal it, but receiving from Its radiance a lining and outline of molten gold. Tbo form of this cloud was so marvellously like an eagit, vit,b its head t uned to tho North , and its wings spread to tUe So tn. that every i no in our little br at uttered an excla mation crmirprjse as thvyboheld it.

N5WS FROM THE KE3EL STATES. We have received additional iutulligonee from tho South Our advices from Now Orleans are to tho 36th uit. TIio following Is a summary of the uows: ? An cntorpr ij.ir?K luan ts about to establish u glass manu fa' tory in South Carolina. A government b< (T-pncking establishment is 10 be or gun I zed on the Rod river. A bill, providing that bankers and brokers shall not rh irgo more than live per cent for coin , has been brought to ward iu tho Tennessee Legislature. The New Orl?sn ( rotten' fays thtro is a largo demand for gold in monetary circles there, which is sent over into Kentucky for ihu purchase of supplies for iho South. The Memphis Ajptal expresses tho opinion that the army of General ltagccrans, in Western Virginia, has been ordered to Kentucky, trnd t' at it is the design of tho go vernment to 0|>en a vigorous campaign against Ton nes; co. Til. Protestant Episcopal Convent i< n of tho confederacy met at Columbia, K. C. , on the loth ult. All the bishops wore present but Hishcp l'oik. Tho K irl'olk />ay It kJL- announces with a flourish that a large number oi coutiU rfcit notes on the Itank of Comdon, Hrnth Carolina, were found In tho trunk* of tho lridlaniuns taken at ChicuiuuooinlcA. It says tlte original ulatcs are iu the hands of Northern people, and it his no doubt that federals have urea t numbers of the notes, with tho design of Hooding the riouth with th" worthless trash. The free market iu New Orioiuis, for tho supply of tho needy famllleti of soldi ts and )>oor people generally, has proved a great success At the last opening of the mar ket supplies were Tut uislied for from six to seven thou wmi irnpove, i?lied citizens. The Vic.ksburg Whig exhort ?< tho planters of the South to prejsirc for tho coming year by raising |>ork, beef, mutton, he. ? sticli tilings as Will soil and enable planters to pay taxes. It says it can seo no prospect that tho bVi Undo will bo opened . and thinks there w ill be no ponce utiliJ tho S >ulh shall invade the North, which must bo doue next year. From thu tone of the Southern journals it is fair lobe" lieve thai the rebel army of the Potomac will winter iu Its present position if not driven out by the gruud army of tho Vnlou. The papers and people u! the Mouth couusol the authorities to attack Washington, but tho lenders

hesitate. The New Orleans Cnteent oxpressos the belief that the federal governui nt is concentrating men and supplies in Kent a kv, preparatory to an attempt to invade the South from this direct n n. Tho Mosilla Timet of tho 12th ult. says an extensive campaign is to be made against the Indians, so soon us it Is known what the movements of the federal troops are to be. The Timn says several companies wHI be kept in tbo II Id, und tho war tu .st be one of extermination The federal troops had abandoned. Kort Craig. THE KOCTIl KHN (.OMMKRCI AI. CONVENTION.
