In Tuesday's Hik alii we published tho following desyateh, which confirms the above report and will give at least a superficial idea of the strength of the expedition:? THE EXPEDITION FROM CAIRO. Chicago, Fab. 3,186:2. A special despatch to the Chicago Tribune, dated Cairo, My a that twelve steamers, laden with trodps, in chargo af Com mod ore Graham, left there at tan o'clock this Morning, to Join a still larger force at another point. The expedition has every indication of a genuine active movement. It will ha remembered by tho readers of the ITnuu> tU a few weeks ago Gsnsral Grant, with a strong forco. left Cairo and proceeded in the direction of tho Tennessee mv uc??j raii'n him unit uau b? bwuiiw u?y | river as to render it impossible to attain any progress toward the ancmy. Added to tbis the transportation fa. Sliies wero found inadequate, bonce the expedition was J Obliged to return. The newa whicl) wt publhh above hows that the expedition$i& Eot abandoned, Ifttt after Ha return to Cairo its subsequent movements wero kept aecret until the tolfcgrapb baa drawn tho veil, and plac :s Ihfi expedition within tbroo milee of tho rebel Fort Bcnry. m Ibis fort, tbq (inly fortification cn tho Tonnessee river Of much importance, is situated near the line of Kentucky and Tennessee, on the ea?t bank of the stream. It stand* In the bottom, about tho high water mark, just below the bend in tbe river, and nt tho head of a straight Itrotch of about two miles. It therefore commands the river for that distauoo down stream; and very little else. Xhe land around it is a little higher than the fort, and a portion of it is covered with timber. Tbe armament of tho fort consists of eight thirty-two pounders, four twelve pounders, and two six pounders. The thirty two and twelve pounders are heavy guns, and the six pound ore light ptoses. On the opposite side of the river are three hills, which completely command tho fort. Ro oonily some new fortifications were commence J on theso hills, where it was intendod to mount some very large guns find three rifled cannon. The garrison of the fort is ss follows:? Brigadier General Floyd Tilghman, Commanding. st a it. Captain Powhatan EMf, Af-elxlant Adjutant General. Captain 8. C. Morris, Atd-ds-Camp. troops. Kentucky regiment, late Colouel Tilghman. Mississippi Fourth regiment. Colonel ?. Louisiana regiment. Colonel 8tucke. Fori Hoary and its approaches wero reconnoitered ou the 21st ult. toy the United Plates gunboat I xingtnn, with a view to ascertain its strength and tho position of tho rebels. She went within two miles of ilto fort, and threw a number of shell* Into it, Without eliciting any reply. At first It wan thought that tho rebols had evacuated the work, but on approaching it till nearer the rebel pickets were seen at. various points. The heavy gnis on the work w ere seen liettm .ly; also h number of Held ph ots, designed evidently to lie hauled out into commanding portions along the bluff) in ea.,c of aeceesity. It was also observed by the ottlcers of the Lexington that in addition to the fort proper numerous earthworks bad boon thrown up uu a high b! t!T above tho fbrt, on the west bank of the river. Theio works were armed with what appeared to bo two eixty.ronr pounders. Bits additional work commands Fort Henry, and in the event of the capture of the latter by General Grant, he would be obliged to make e second assault on ths work on the heights in the vicinity. On the 2vM ult., Hrigadier General ('. F.Smith, whose brigade was then at Crown r?int, Ky.. proceeded from there on a perrons 1 reconnopgance, on the gunboat Lox tagton, in the directions of Fort Henry. The gunboat proceeded up the west channel of the river, to a point within aac mile and a half of the fori. Three rebel steamers were discovered lying off tho mouth of the small rreek that empties into (be Tennessee river just above the fort. * w?ii uirNivi ulu vu uicu iruut im i.eimt too, striking boo o f tho rob?1 craft in Urn Urn.

They have been incarcerated hi (ho J til at Philadelphia4 cinco their capture, more than six months ago, and their appearance indicates that they have been dealt w ith in a considerate and careful manner. The train com eying the prisoners left Philadelphia at half-past nine o'clock yesterday morning, but did not arrive at Jersey City until two o'clock in the afternoon, me ears oemg forty-live minutes behind time. Tho "secesbers'' ytore ".ud?r oliargo of Deputy Marshals Jenkins ami Sharkey, botli of whum paid all tlio attention in their power to tho comfort and convenience of tho some. Mr. Lor ear. u do Auto!is. of this city, was on baud, and had a tugboat in loadiness at tho Jersey City side to take the prisoners to Don Lafayette on tl?j arrival of the traiu. Some dissatisfaction, however, teas expressed at the accommodatens provided for conveying the prisoners to tho fort, as the tugboat in question was not large enough, alt on b*rd being compelled to stand on dock, expose 1 to tho sharp sea breezes wntclt vrero blowing at tho limo. The prisoners were marched ou huard (b ; tugboat from the cars without delay or icci lent of tiny description. A largo crowd, however, had congregated at tLe depot, eager to catch a gtimpse of those wh > had proven false to their flag and fought against that const llutioo which had been cemented in tho bio. d of their fathers. No taunting or Insolent expiesstov. however, was given vout to, and the rebels marched on b?ard the bout which was to c >nvey them to the fort with a? much nonchalance an if going on an excursion down the Mississippi. All of them were well clad, and teemed to be in the bent of spirit*. They walked along with a certain degree of reckless dare deviltry which seemed to put forth tbc idea that they did nut care lor the i>ositiou in which they wore planed, nor fur the portion of tho glebe win re the winds of time might rhatico to waft them. It was fairly half-past two o'clock are the party put out from the Jersey City dock and headed for T'ort Lafayette. N? sooner, however, hid fhu u nit put out into the ni.ddlo of tho stroam than a large Atanricaa banner, which fluttered over the cntiro length of the boat, was hoisted. The prisoners seemed to gaze upon it at tlrst with a ,-:ullon apathy; but when tho old natninid banner cast out its glittering colors to the hreoze, and bygono recollections of former patriotic emotion welled up in their once loyal ucuri", wuku, ui ?.!di nine, oeui uign won uraor at ino alght, nno could ur t help imagining that there v. as $t II left some of the genuine emotion which guided on to violoiy the* lolling bruit* <f '70. 1h? incidents connected wiih the capture of tbo privateer l'elrel are a> vivid iu our imagination that t is uuueceseury here to enumornte them.
