Doran K.1 lian saMcd with au expedition for the capture of tho Island ot Bermuda, and on the fol ly win (t Tuesday night, at about, the came hour. Colonel 1". J. Downiug suited at tLe hoad ot nnottnr expedition, destined lor tbo came p ace. II r. Kil lian's expedition was ccmpo. ed oi three nur -lflceut Iron steamers, with altogether throe thousand despe radoes, all of whom haa been soldion In tbe United Mates Army. Colonel Donning had two s;eamera, and two thousand live hundred men. riot a single man want with n'ber expedition wao had not been a tried soldier. Htranve to say, the matter had been ariangcd oo cleverly that noihing whatever was known of it untd it was completed. ibenamoul ttie sicatnoiR have not as yet been ascertained, aid whether they sloped eft without clcaiance or under very pacific names is not et known. ro many times have strange rumors been clrcu ated in connection witii Fenian ships that tho present matter is looked upon pretty generally as testation only. AU the oliioes in tho upper part of the builulug occupied as headquarters weie yostci tav tmpiy of oilicinis, aud during tbe roator por tion ol ti e ray locked, feus, ink, and paper lav sheet idlo In all directions, and the headquarters rl'Dvethtr prtioutod a vl-omy and lono.y look. However, other ollicials are destined to fill tbe plat.KOI those who are rone, aud probably in tbe course of a day or two the scones will be as busy as ever. iearly in the morn'ne and late at night wagons were scon coming to and rrom the AfofUt mansion, biinginp away large eases ot aims and ammunition, or something el. e, and were observed going ia the' Be.f aborliood of the North liver. It was only too plain that soniethlug ot a vert urgent nature was going on, judging from the amount of whispenng and the excited manner ol all the former official in the civil department, who have now bid larewell, probably forever, to their laborious diuics in the Moffat msusion. He; muds, and not Canada, it is siud, la dfstinod to be pouueed upon by the Fenian?, in order to make it a bans of supnlios, and as a moans ot destroying a large portion of the Un tieb, commerce. There is a rood deal of disappointment a mono; thote who were lelt behind. However, they were somewhat consoled by the intelligence at headquar ters that ere loi g mother expedition would leave, followed by another aud another, so that all, or at least a lartre number oi ti em, would have an op portunity of getuug tbe worth of their money in fiftiting. It is asserted at headquarters that the steamers are able to run eighteen knots an hour. The rumor about Stephens i being lu New York was without any foundation, aud bad been thrown out bvthe Fenisn8 themselves, in order to try and put tbe British authorities off the scent. I he most efficient seamen that could be secured are on board the vecsels. Expeditions are reported to have sailed from other ports in the Unlttd States, all bound lor Bermeda, Iroin which point the final expedition to Ireland will be started, commanded by Colonel . John O'Mahony. This is the O'Mahony side of the situation. Now for the Sweeney view. There is rather unusual news going the rounds of Feuiai.lt-ro. It wns started by the olllcul organ ot the ' Killun-O' ilnbouy party, which d.tolared that "tne actors were going in their plp.eos," and the curtain would rise at once aud show action to the bond, holders, when it was nssuuied another large sa e of bonds would result. The publio comment is, that the Killian paity give up the idea of fighting in Ireland, aud seeing that tne KoLerta-Sweeuey Canadian policy Is going to he the wiuiiug one a tier all, deter ' mine to checkmate that movement by making a sort of premature rush on the intended theatre of Sweeney's operations, thus forcing taat movement to strike beiore thoroughly prepared, and hazard defeat. It is the common talk about town that tbe an nouncement oi O'atabonv's organ yesterday means that those hud; rs are aotually in this business, and really give up Stephens and tbe I. K. iJ alter all. Before the lapse of a we;-k It is assumed that the pre will be tending Kililan's proclamations lrom tome patch o a snow peak where tbe two or three hundnd ot the lorloin hope will eamp until the UniUd HtatD3 Government la provoked to paralyse the military movement ao well elaborated and so nearly perlt'Cled bv Ceueral Hweeuey said his vete rans. The temporary "sensation," however, is set down rs good tor the tale of another million of ttie KiDian O'ilabouv bond.

I Ullllstn m " I.lea tnnt.u.lernl',, acftr la Comanand of the Army of lavaslnn, Etc. lrm the Aew York World of to-day. In all probability before this morning's edition of the Word can roach l' suhscrilinn in the more d s taut portions ol tho United States, the American people will hear of the long-expected and ofuen deterred invasion ot British soil by the military loice aoting with and by order of Head Contre John O'Mahony. During the hut two weeks tho officials ot Union Squaro have been very myaterous in their movements and reticent in communicating Intelligence ot the Fenian organization to the press. Vanous rumois have boon circulated in consequence as to what wss transpiring at the headquarters at Union fqume, in the secret sessions of the Central Council. However, by a littlo strategy, our Foman reporter succeeded, yesteraay, in obtaining informa tion ot the most startling nature, In regard to Uis movement now on loot against the British empire, l'.ans have matured, and forces organized, anil tt is probable that the first b ow has a'ready Leon struct, THE OBJECTIVE POINT. The point ot attack is the Hand of Campo Bello, in ti.e Bay ot Fundv, at tho entiance ot I'assama quoddv Bay. The island ol Campo Bello is about eight miles in lmiktb bv three in breadth, and is a puitol the territory of Aew Biunwick. ft. Johns, with its rich shipping aud commodious harbor, is ai out forty miles distant from Campo Bullo. and can to reached in a few licuu I y uuuns ol steam commiuiicalion. Directly onpeshe Is the coast of Nova Scotia, th'riv-jlx to loi ty miles distant, with good harbor for lieht vessels ctipiDle of transporting two or three hundred men eaoh lrom Maclua, B31 tust, Conine, Baton, llxngor. l ort and, or tbo small cluster ot islands in I'enobscot Uay. PLAN OP OPERATIONS. The plan of operations, as far as oan be ascer tained in tho hurry ot the moment, is to have five or six hundred mon transported, in small Kpiads oi a hundred each, by railroad, 11 order to prevent notice bv the United iSfates t.ovcrnu'ctit, to MRshias, Mane, and to march the men, who are to bo we 1 mobitfzod, to Mad ias duilng the night lor embaikation at Ma chirs, where Lovcial scliooneig are in wailing. As soon asthe men are embarked, the vK-.els wilt leave Marhias for Campo lioho Islund, wtnc'i is about twentv-hve miles distant, and a landing will be effected. (Should au airay interfere to prevent the spiling ot the vermis, the marc:i will bo madeover iand i.lonp anoint ot land 10 Kastport, two:vo miles distant from Macbiss, or to l'er. y, directly opposite tbo is and ol Campo Bello. where the ship channel, ai out three miles in width, will aflora ea-y means of landing by means of smsll boats, or a bridge of boais, as the case may require. A oouple of print ing piesses will accompany the raid, aud as soou as a landing is effected in Campo IteJ.o, proclamations will be issued and telegraphed tliroii'.'Uoiit the United States, calling upon (be Fenian Brotherhood to respond to the call, aud it is oxo 'ctad vo un era in areat numbers will flock to the standard of O'Ma hony, who is not to accompany tho expedition in person, it is also expected that the occupation ot British territory bv aimed Fenians will cause an immense sale 01 bonds, to the amount ot two or three millions 01 dollars. THE FIRST BATTLE AT CAXPO BELLO. But it is not expected by tho Fenian leaders in command of tne expedition thai Campo Boilo can be' occupied by their lo.ces wiinout a ti jht. and a first engagement maybe exi eoied whon the landing is attempteo with the British troops already Btatioued there. It is the intention of O Mahony to attack and defeat the inadequate foice stationed at Campo Bello, and then hold the island and wait until rein lorccmcntocan be obtained from tho United titateg. THE BRITISH FOUCES OH CAMPO BELLO ISLAND. The Government of New Brunswick have been 111 possession of mioi motion in regard to the proposed attack n tbe island of Campo Hello lor ton davg past, and, as a precaution, have sent a small body ot trooi-s to defend tne isiand. Mujor-beiieral Doyle, in command at Halifax under tue Instruc tion of Mr WiiliHin Fenwick Williams, has detac'iod a Dody ol voluntceia and regulars to Camio Bello, it is understood, and field artdiory and stores have also Leen sent to that point, how tho Colonial authorities became informed of the movement is unknown, but it is claimed by the Canadian jour nals that information is furnished tegularly Dy some poison at Union Square, who is in tho confi dence of O'Mahony. It is also stated that a high ofbcial of tbe O'Mahony government is a most inti mate liund of Thomas Darcy Metjee, and that the movement has been planned by the high contending powers, in order that tbe Koboita-Sweenoy move ment may prove aboitive, as 11 is expected that Pre sident Johnson wi l ibsuo a proclamation eutorciug the neutrality laws between tireat Britain and the United Mates, and bv doing ro effectually put a stop to all future Fenian aggression ou English territory. TUB KEPDBLIO Og EMMETTA. It is the Intention of tbe Fenian lcadors, immedi ately on securing the island ot Campo Bello, to organize a provisional government, aud proosud to the election of a I resident. Now B.-uiiswick is to be conquered and held bv twenty-live thousand Fenians lrom the United Statoi, and as soon as at. 1 Joni's is in ho possession 01 the revolutionist-., John O'Mahony will undoubtedly be ehoiien ho id 01 tho new republic, which is to be called "The re public ot Etuinetta," iu honor ol tho Irish patriot, Koboit Fnimeit, who sacrificed his hie in au at'etnpt to liberate Ireland. New Biuuswiok will be divided ' into lour provinces, after the mauuor in which Ire land is divided. Ibe piovinces will be named as follows: Mali. nia.

I here will ho a Hou e of Con gress composed of two bodies, Sonata and Houso of Beprc?cuiative8 All othecs will be eleotivo, and the Trcsideut will bold office for eight venrs. It is supposed rhat tho aiealor part of the lush popula tion ot the United rttutaj w.ll settlo in fcmmst'a. and thus a groat power will be foimid oa the bor der of this republic, li loudly to America aud Ame ricans. THE OVFICERB IN COMMAND. Tbe army of invasion will be under the command ot officers who have won lor themsolves lmpeiisa able renown on the gory fields of batt'.e during this war.

The army will deploy ou fet. JohuB in three columns, while a fleet ot Yankee sUippets wl'l follow with arms and ammunition. It is understood that the principal officers in command ot the expedition left last evening for the scone of hos tilities, and it is expected thsi 1'reaidont O'Mahony will follow in the roar-guaid as soon as Campo ltollo Is captured. It Is claimed bv the Lleutonant-Gene-ral in command of tne expedition, that "he is ablo to organize a revolution at any time, with the aw of the printing press aud tbe te egroph."

No little whisper has been creatxl in Fenian circles by the sudden departure of B. Doran Killian lrom tbis city an Monday last, aud all day yesterday and on Tunsday vague reports were afloat ihat some thing extiaordmary was on the carpet. 1 he lac' teems to ba that our correspondent's au thentic account of the oocape ot Stephens from Ire land, added to the consequent par alv cation of the sale of the Fenian bonds, had necessitated the im mediate Inauguration of some movement in order to sustain the waning enthusiasm of tbe Fenian Bro. therbood, aud prevent their going over to the fcwteney plan et tonuaenvmg hoe tU) ties with an Invaflon of Canada. 'Whether this be or he not true, an Impatient demand seems to have been in formally prcfoircd that something be dono, and done inimediaielv. Ou the other hand, it la claimed bv those well learned in the secret 01 Fcnlanism, that tbe expe dition haa leen on the carpet tor some timo, and that every preparation has eeen made to render the exne ditlon success. Subjoined will be found a lull collection of tha tacts connected with the affa r, if Fenian sources of information may be considered nnanrstionabie The account below has been col lated by onr reporter from the most aoec-eible Fe nian fourcrs. and nothing is set down except what is sustained by the asfeveiatlons of Fen ans of high cfl.ee in connection with t' e movement The details are somewhat meagre, but aro sufficient to give an idea ot the strength ot tbe alleged. FKNI AN EXPEDITIONS ON FOOT. Tho authorized statement from the O'Mahony headquarters la to the eflpct that U. Doran Kilhan, whilom Secretary 01 the Trea-ury F. B., started on Monday evening in company with an exitedition, consisting of three steamers two propel, ers and one side-wheel steamer of taat sailing qualities nn rival ed.

'I be second part ot the expedition is composed of a couple 01 propellers, capable of making eighteen mucs per hour under a lull head 01 steam. These vessels are also lully armed and equipped, and have on board a complement ot 2730 men, besides thoie mi'ttisary to m-cage the yessels. these men have all teen selected from tho klild votorans 01 tue late war with tbe nnuth, and are fully armed aud equipped for seivue in the Held. 1 hese vessels are said to bo fitted nut with a view to the sevoro-t naval combat, if rondeied nooessary by any contingency, and are thought to be equal to anv emergency which, with the exercise ol due cau tion, can possibly occur. ISoth expeditions are in tho hands of eminent Fenians, and nre commanded by experienced naval oflicers, who have seen service dining tho war, Cap tain Downing being in command of the sooond ex pedition, aud the whole ton e vosseis aie manned with picked mon. B tioran Killiau Is invested witu the supervision ol both expeditions, It t also asserted at b' auquurters that seven war ships have lojt tbe coast ot California, simultane ously w ith tile above-Lamed tmui au Kisioi u port a given ie egiaphic aivnal having ticeu agreed upou which would prevent the possibility ol any failure ol tho Cali orniau expouitieu to sail upon receipt of the telegram that all was rcadv in Now York. 1 heso Calitoriiian vesvolsare su d to be models of tho naval to, tress, and are armed aii'i equipped iu a manner vie.ng with the armuments of tne Eastern portion of the expedition. 1 be caiitnrnian expedi. ion takes out in round numbers 10,000 men lmly or mod aud equipped lor field service.
