PARTICULARS OF THE DKSTKl'CTIOS OF PORTE-AU-PLATTE. Nbw York, Not. !.?The brig Suntiago, fro-n Porte-au-Platte on the 6tb of October has ar rived at this port. The Hamburg and Bremen consuls at Porte au-Platte were passengers to New York. It appears, from the information received here from San Domingo, that alter the destruc tion of Santiago, tho Spanish garrison, wit?i 2,(!lKl reinforcements retreated to Porte-au Platte. The insurgents so much barrassed the Spaniards as to cause a loss to them of I,2u0 killed and wounded. Fresh arrivals of troops reinforced them to 4,UU0 men: yet even these wera confined to the town by the efforts of not over 1,000 insurgents. This continued until the 2a of October, when the Spanish troops re turned to the fort. The town was given up to pillage. A part of the Spanish force embarked for San Domingo,reducing t*e garrison tot,500 men. On the 4th inst. the Spaniard* again pillaged the town, and the Dominicans then tried their band. Nearly all the bouses and stores were J, nnn fan to r rar?? /-???<? J destrojed. Six hundred Spaniards then sallied from the fort. After a suvere fight they drove the Dominicans from the town. The Span iards were assisted by guns trom the fort,which si t tire to the town. The fire was continned until the departure of the Santiago, destroying valuable store?. A considerable body of foreign mi rcbants, and the entire town, excepting; the Wesleyan mission-house and a few small buildings, were burned. It was believed the remainder of the town would be destroyed. The losses by the two fires at Santiago and Porto Plata reach live millions. The white population of Lamar haye fled to foreign countrise, thousands have gone to the neighbor ing islands, and some of the principal mer chants to the United States. The United States Commercial Agent is among those who have left. None bavesaved anything but their lives. Another account, from the Turks Island Standard, says that in the battle the Spaniards were tenibly beaten, and driven back to the fort, with a. loss of 460 men. A brisk lire from the lort compelled the Dominicans to leave the town. The Government House, and the American and British Consuls and the Roman Uaiholic church weream.mg the houses burned. The Spanish soldiers were seen going about with firebrands in their hand while the tight was progressing. It was reported that the Spaniards would soon evacuate th" fort, as they cannot retain it against the Dominicans, who number tour thousand in the neighbor hood. It is said that the whole south sule of the island is in actual rebellion, and that the Dominicans whom it is reported joined San tana have deserted him.

HKAnyt ARTERr* DbPA RT M EST Or THK Soi'TH October v; ?A nnmberof the heaviest guns in Wagner and Gregg were opened on Sumter, Moultrie and Johnson yesterday laorum;. The firing was contiuued at regular inter vals throughout the day until dark, and re suroed again this morning. The range of the guns oa Sumter and John son is one-third less than it was belore the capture of Wagner and Gregg. The firing on our sid* is excellent; every shots seems to be ?ffpai?x o. The enemy did not commence an animated reply till about noon yesterday. His practice is inferior to that exhibited weeks ago. At the present moment of writing not a ca4 unity has occurred on our aide, mad no percep tible damage to our works has be?n su-taiued. The artillery is in charge of the :)d Rhode Island repiment, thoy having been ordered to the pieces on Sunday. The land batteries alone are engaged. The object of the tire was to get perfect range of the Rebel works, anu to prevent the con struction of any interior batteries and the mounting ot any guns on Snmter. It cannot, be pnt as the commencement of any vigorous assanlt, and the public must not anticipate news of siirriog import by the arrival of the succeeding transport. Tbft pieparations have been making for some weeks for active movements is patent to us all, and will be more so when the actual moment arrives. Gen. Gillmore's headquarters* are still on Folly Island. Measures have been adopted to protect the Ironsidts from further attempts at her destruc tion. She is now eo hedged in that it will be impossible for a torpedo to explode near enough to it to occasion any damage; and as for any machine like that which tailed in the last at tempt doing damage is quite outof the question. It will do no damage to notify the rebels that all our vessels lying inside the bar are njw quite well prepared against their tactics and f? ar them not Changes have been male in the comm inds of many ot the vessels ot late. It ivon'd do no good to state the precise time the iion-clad operations will a^ain be res-urned, ard might occasion harm. Preparations for a final attack are being pushed 0:1 as rapidly circumstances will permit, and, confidently hoped, will Lp completed very soon. A coriespondcnf, writing relative fo the re cert operations under date of Oct. :!7tli, says: The unusual quiet of the past thee week* was broken jesttrday by Gen. Gilmore's new batteries, v hich opened on Fort Sumter, and on Forts Moultrie and Johnson, and the batte ries about those works. The rebels replied to our fire, but with little accuracy. Our fire ha* bet 11 quite sharp and toierably effective. The bricks on Fort Sumter flew in clouds, and it was the opinion of one of our general officers that it was quite as safe to be outside of that work as snside. It most have been very hot lor the inmates of the fort, if fragments of shot and shell, bricks, mortar and splinters can bting about such a state of affairs. The fire upon Moultrie and Johnson had the desired t tied. The rebels fired feebly and inaccurately. >ot a casualty occurred on our side during the day. To-day our Parrotts are talking as loudly as o\f.r' "i? what result we have not leaxaoUt checked in any efforts they may have made to erect a battery within "the work, and the chancre are Tbkt (neb a work is already de. siroyed by the shot and f?hell now raining into the lcrt. The scene we daily witness is in no wsys different from the one I have described. Perhaps heavier pieces of masonry are detach ed and more brick dust is thrown in the air by onr heavy projectiles than in the first bombard ment, because the range is nearly two-thirds shorter than before, and the force of impact is correspondingly increased. Sumter has not. replied, nor is it likely that the enemy can much longer maintain the work. But we shall see ir. due time what is to be accomplished. As I close oDe of our guns is firing npon the city of Charleston, with what result cannot yet be stated. St. Michael's spire is the target for our fire. THE WAR IN LOUISIANA. Progress of Banks* Expedition?Federal Occupation ef Opelou?as ? Vermillion Taken?Movement of Another Expedi tion. The steamer George Washington, at New York, bring* advices lrom New Orleans ta the iMtb ult. New Orj.eam?, Oct. ?>>.?The latest news re ceived fiom the army is up to yesterday after noon, and is of the most cheering character. The column under Major Gen. Franklin en tered Opelousas at noon yesterday. The enemy made a stand about five miles ia front of the town with a body of troops com posed of infantry, cavalry and artillery, but they were quickly driven from the field. This result has followed every attempt of the enemy to make a stand curing the present campaign on the Tecl e. At Vermillion Bayou, where the rebels held a stiong position, an ugly engagement .might have been expected: bnt the threats made on their rear by Geo. Dana's forced compelled, the rebel commander to divide his troops, and so weakened the force on the bayou that K was easily turned by our cavalry. A portion of the Corps d AJrique accompa nies the expedition. The enlistment of colored soldiers is pro gressing rapidly. Two regiments of whits soldiers are also rapidly filling up. fomtich ot the Mississippi river as is in this department is now entirely free from the dep redations ot the guerrillas, and the traffic along its banks is now as uninterrupted as before the war. Business in this city is steadily increasing. The receipts of cotton for the week amounted to 60,073 bales. At a sale of new cotton, mid dling fair brought 74% cents to-day. Several small expeditions have recently been sent across Lake Pontchartrain into Mississip pi, where they destroyed several rebel tan neries auu cult woris, besides otner valuable property. They met several parties a/ rebel soldiers, and in the skirmishes which ensued the Union troops were victorious. The Gulf blockading squadron have made several cap tures recently, ana blockade running on this pari of the coast is ruining all who engage ia it. The Rebels Rapidly Retreating. . New Ori.kasb, Oct. St.?The advices from the Thirteenth Corps up to last evening state that they were at Vermillionville. The Nine teenth Corps made a reconnoissance in force to Opelousas without .much resistance, and a large part of the corps was still at Opelousas. The enemy are reported to be rapidly re treating toward Alexandria. A new expedition under Gen. Dana leaves here wihin two days, for some point not known to anybody except General Banks who will accompany the expedition. It is known that this force will act in conjunction with the Thirteenth and Nineteenth Army Corps and will meet them at some point on the march. General Magruder, quitting Galveston, has turned up, it is said, in the neighborhood of the Sabine Pass, with a view to begin there his re sistance to the advance of our forces towards Texas- Co-opei ating with him is Kirby Smith.
