At a quarter past four A. M. oa the 25th of June, a sail eras reported close in shore on Smith's inlet, evidently trying to run tbo blockade. Wo Immediately slipped out cable and stood in cloeo to the shore, which runs off nearly two miles, along tbo whole southern and western length of the island, on which the water averages In depth from three to eight foot. Tbo gnnb.ats Mystic end Victoria were in company with as. Tho sohoonor, uudor cover of the morning mist, which here Is gene rally vory donso, had succeeded in reaching the entrance to a verjr narrow and circuitous channel, which, if thoronghly known, allows a vessel of not more than Gvc foot draught of water to reach the main ship channel at high water, between the shoal and the island. The V03 sola immediately oponod firs upon her, and threw shot and Shell at the daring echoonor. We could not run Within two miles of hor by reason of tbo shoal The eiptaln of tbo schooner was dolerminod to succoel 1 resolution could mako him, and so stood on with every ?titch or canvass set to u strong broeze from lbs north east. Commander Gilsson,finding that 3he would escape If not cut off by somo m ans, ordered the cutter to be manned,and, placing her in charge of Acting Master Win. N. (JrUwolJ, Senior Master of the ship, with sevoa men, gave him orders to " cut the vsssol oat."' Ibe schooner had by this time reached a po aition which placed hor under the guns of Fort Caswell. It was a desperate caao, and required deeiierata measures to prsveut the schooner from getting tn. The boat loft the ship, and with slal worth arms the bravo tars bent to their oars till the little craft fairly ?prangthrough the water, our vessel throwing shell after shell ovor them at the cnomy's vessel, when, to odd to gho beauty of the scene, the sun arose In splendor, tinging the horizon in the must magniflccut man ner. Onward sped ths boat. Soon she came wlAln range or tbo fort, and th m the enemy opeuod sit i shot and shell at them. Shell cxplodod every where riround them; but thoy wore noi harmed. Their rosltlon was a fearful ono, and to us who beheld them U ?eomod as if they must be destroyed; but still on went the gallant fellows undismayed, whin suddenly wo saw the Bsbo.mer '?broach to." Wo could sou our officer in tbo t>Ml spring to bis feet and wave his cap, whtln on went the little craft with greater speed. 8oon after we saw the crew of tbo schooner men ihoir boat and start for tho shore, a distance of per hap* one quarter ot a mile, for our boat was coming within rill# range. In a law moments our men were ua tho decks of the rebel sohoonor, and down went tho mainsail. Tho order to coaso firing had been given the sr. >m?nt tho enemy left their vessel, and now all hands wore with saver oxpcc tancy watching the movements or oar bovs, wno wero within easy raugo of tbo fort. Shot and shell were stiO showe ed upon thorn. 8oon we saw smoke artso from three places In tho vosel at onoe. Still our men did aet leave hor, but could bo seen moving about the dock. Shortly alter our ho.it arrived tbo but front the Mystic touched the burning vessel. Soon tho two boats wore seen leaving tbi schoonor. Shot and shell were thrown after them: but still fortune smiled, and they escaped. One shell passed nvor tho Mount Vernon's boat, clearing tho heads or tier crew. Wo welcomed them with full and thankful hearts. Tliey brought an English ling, a rag called tho "lone star," the log book.showing that the schooner had left Nassau on the 22d of June, a chronometer and other articles. Hardly had they reached car deck when the schooner was observed to move ahead, alt oa tiro as she was. the ?inInsail burned, but the forward sails intact. She was oT the shoal and standing diroct for the mainland, nvl d.mlly some one on board steering, else she would have friyod off and gone upon the shoal again. ?? After hor, Si.came the command from the captain. The lioai was again manned, sad, iu charge of Mr. Oils' w >td, sway ?he went right into the very tooth or the one my. When tliey had nearly reecho 1 the schooner again i:.j bout was not nioro than tbroo quartern of a mile from ? the fori, following close in the wako of tl>u buruinc ves sol. livery moment wo expected to see a concentrated lt<o brought upon them, which would destroy them 8oun lbs Homes were seen to catch the foresail.

It is reported that Lieutenant Barrett, the efficient instructor of gunnery at this naval station, has applied to the Navy Depart ment tor the use of this old sloop-of-war as a school ship for the practice of gunnery. Lieutenant B's. olnss at preeont numbers some thirty-se von members, and from all wo havo observed they cannot dovoto suffi cient tlmo to the school, In consequence of having to board in Brooklyn and New York. Itfroiuently occurs, too, that masters and masters' mates are orderod to join their vessels before they have spent two weeks at school. To bring them under the discipline necessary to qualify them to enter upon active duty, they should bo quartered on board a regular man of-war, under the control of their instructor. Hero one week's training would be worth six or the present method; by the present system thoy lose so much ttmo going and coming from their meals that not more than a couple of hours pyr day can be devoted to their class. Although Lieutenant B. has every reason to foel proud of his exortions since liis appointment to his present posttion, yet he is very anx. ious that the department should not ship any of his o'nss under six weeks' tuition. We bopo that the department will grant bis petition; but if It does not, the class at least should bo so arranged ns to be under the full con trol of their instructor.

A Norn BrigcuMor General and Military Qooamor of Controbamdo, be. General Hsu tar's letter to the Secretary of War Oom not tell all Mm facta about bis arming the negroes. Oos at tbe first things he did after arriving here was to make a requisition on the War Department for fifty thou sand stand of arms and equipments, and ten million cartridges. This be did without oonsulUng anybody, probably with the notion that he could any day call so many negroes into camp and organize them into an army. There were arms enough here for all our troops, and for all the negroes he could p ssibly muster , for there were not in his whole dominions and control two thousund male contrabands capable of bearing arms, and these wero all needed in ihe Quartermaster's Depart ment as servants and on tho plantations. He did not even moke his requisition through his ordnance officer in lb. regular way, nor did be inform that officer that ho had made any such requisition. How or why the Uidniuca Department over answered such a re qutsilion is a mystery, ui less they bad that amount of mulcts and ammunition which they wanted to get rid of. Hut they did do it. and the consequent? w-s lliat the muskets (Crouch titled muskets, costing seine #18 each) and so forth wero suddenly p:eclpUutod upon our h mds without any place having lie n provided for them; and, as u result, they wero necessarily piled up on the sand, with no covering but canvass, and, being in poi.rly constructed boxes, were subject to rust aud rum. .some wire put in a leaky boat uud sent to lioaufort, but at the stampede at Iioaufort they wero brought back to this | lace and dep sited en tho wharf, where, with broken boxes uud e\|>osure to rain, their condition was the worst imaginable. Hero was an outlay of soino $2 ,'00,000 to $2,000,000 as lbs result of a fanoiful idea tliat lialf a day s rational consideration would have cor reeled. The uoxt move of General Hunter was to endeavor to find men to use his war material, and be consequently iss.ed an order that all the male contrabands capable or boariug arms in his department In S?uUi Carolina and Ge irgia should bo immediately sent to this place under guard. The ceusequence was that, under this wholesale c inscription, private servants, quartermasters' laborers, plantation workmen and all were incontinently seized end sent to Hilton tload, 'o tho c iistorua'.toa of the darkeys and the Inconvoi.iuuce of everybody. As a result of this, both blacks and whiten becams alar me J, and Gen. Hunter w is otiiiged to countermand his order and let the contra bends go. At length he succoeded in getting about five bundled male contrabands to enlist, and those u w con stitute his African battalion, whose parades and reviews bo has attended ten times as often as the lutradee ami re views of any white regimeut. Meantime tbe M.000 Kretich muskets, belts, bayonets, cartiilgo boxoi, Ac , and the 10,000,000 cartridges, remain a monument of the economical forecast and military genius sufficient iu these times to provo the competency of a man to be the mill lory com in under of a Soulhoru Department. Since then the War Department lias sent out to us Brigadier Goneral Sax ton, as a military governor of negroes and plantations, with powers and duties mdepend ent or the General commanding the department, when his whole cotiditiioncy will uot number as many, including women and chi.drcu, as a full brigade. If govornraeut would put Geueral Saxton, who is a West Point officer, in the Held, with his st iff, it would show a becoming dosire to make the best usa of tho proper means for vigorously prosecuting tho war; and if it would suud out hero good, thorough,honest business men to do busiuess work, it woul I show a commendable intent ion to se: vo the ecooo mical and business interests of the public.

Last Wednesday morning, the Oth last., at two A. M., the gunboats Ores, Acting Master MsDtarmld; Commo dore Perry, C. W. Hussar, Lieutenant Commanding, and the Shawsheeo, got under way and proceeded up the Roanoke river toward Hamilton, a email town situated at a distance of about fifty miles from tho mouth of the river. When the vessels In question arrived within six miles of the town, the enemy opened fire upon the Cores from a high bank on one side of the river, but always romtinlug effectually concealed in the hoavy woodland, which forms the most prominent leature of that neighborhood. The enemy's firs was promptly returned, both with big guns and small arms, from the gunboits, notwithstanding the ene my was invisible. This character of firing was con tinned for nearly two hours, the gunboats all the time going along at a modoratespcod, till they arrived within about half a mile of Hamilton. At this point about one hundred man and a field piece, under cnnmand of Lieut. Commanding C. W. Flussor a id Capt. flammed, of the Now York Hawkins Zouaves, were landed. This small force, on proceeding a short dtstanco inland, fouud that the enemy had retired without waiting to make any re als lauce. While they were operating on shore a robot steamer named the Wilson incautiously ran too nenr the feres, when it wax speedily taken poaso?fcX> of by Cap lain McLiarraid. An engineer and some contrabands tormod the greater part < f the caplur d steamer's crow. The land lorce, on ascertaining that they could not find an enemy without penetrating the woods to a dangerous and in,mlicious distance from the gunboats, returned to their original imettion, when the gunboats retumod to wards Plymouth, shelling the woods on the way. Tho Ceres had ouo man killed?John II Uridgos, sea man. He was shot through the heart while workiug his gun.
