From most reliablu sources it Is learned
Hint an expedition was seen to embark
about 11 o clock on board a small sail
boat on the noiilicrn side of llio Island.
Tlio number of men Is estimated to bo
from llflccn to thlity. They arrived lu
carriages, bringing packages of arms

ately hoisted and llio boat proceeded
by the Inside passage among tlio keys
and Is expected to reach Ihu outer co.tit
through one of thu numerous channels
above this island, where a largo vessel,
with a contingent from some point. Is
said to be lu walling to receive them.
Tho expedition, which has been organ
izing for several months, has only boon
awaiting notice to sail. This was re

believed that an island twenty lulled
