The popular idea seems to be that our
great naval ami military Expedition against
the coast of the Cotton Confederacy, in mag
nitude of its outfit, and in tbe number of its
ships and men, bears no comparison with
the no-called 'Invicnible Armada,' fitted out
ty Spain against England, in 1588-9, in
the reign of Queen Elizabeth. This proba
bly arises from the pompous descriptions of
that spectacle by the early historians. It
was the most magnificent naval enterprise
that bad then ever appeared upon the ocean
and infused terror into the. minds of all be
holders. The language of poetry was ex
haunted in its descriptions, and an eloquent
historian of Italy (Hentivoiilio.) states that
the oce in groined with supporting, and the
wiii'ls wete tired with impelling so enormous
aweij'it. Yet, the truth is, tint the largest
fhi s were not tqual to thirl rate vi s jels in
our navy : they were ill framed and tin
wield v, and could not be managed in s'o-iny
weather. By the side of our modern first
c!a-s naval .steamship t he v would have pre-
ncn'ed a sorry and in-iguificaut appearance.
Tile Spanish Armada consisted of Kid j
.... . ...
vessels, u wti'.cti many one nunuren were
galleons of greater size, thin had ever before
been constructed in Europe galleons beiuj
three or four decked uliips. It carried on
board nineteen thousand two hundred and
ninety-five soldiers, eight thousand lour hun
dred and fifty-six mariners, two thousand
and eighty-eight galley slaves, and two thou
sand six hundred and thirty rtreat pieces of
brass ordnance.
It will thus tie seen that when ibe superior
character of our modern naval ships, and
greatly improved ordnance, are taken into
consideration, our ereat Expedition im
mensely exceeds the Spanish Armada in ef
fective power and force ; while our fleet
carries a larger number of soldiers, equip
ments, ordnance, &e. In ouly one respeet
did the Armada more than rival our Expe
dition. That carried over two thousand gal
ley slaves, while ours has on board one
thousand 'contrabands.'
The destruction of the great Armada in a
torn., cfi the Orkney Islands, and its miser
able failure are well known. May the issue
ol our great naval and military Expedition
be more fcuecessful anil more glorious !

Montpeher, Monday, Nov. 4, 18tl.
It is blue Monday in good earnest to-day,
at least everything is blue excepting the sky.
And even that is last turning to that color if
we may credit the signs of clearing off which
arc given to-night. A speck as large as a
man's hand is to be seen, and that is so much
more than we have seen for forty hours before
that we take courage.
The absence of all legislative pexcitement
and of nearly all the legislators leaves us the
denizens of a quiet country village, and gos
sip becomes the predominant habit. Apro
pos of this we've just received a little gossip
ing timber. Senator Y heeler thisforenocn
received a letter frcm an acquaintance of his
in the Second Regiment, the one which has ;
been represented as in a suffering condition j
and whence that memorable appeal has just
issued to the Honorable Assembly of Ver-
niirt. Ser.ator Wheeler assures me that his
corn spondent is a man of integrity and can- ;
dor. This last TviU appear from the extract i
I make. It is taken trrm tin- midst of a long
letter concerning private all airs and had r.o
connection with the other par'.
"We had quite a laua a lew days since. ;
upon reading a speech of a member of the i
House. He made out that we were in a sor-
rv p'ijht : that we were about barefooted and ;
laj'l, with sleeves torn off in fa,-t that our
sufleiiiiL's equalled tho.-e o! our forefathers at
Valley Eorge. 1 dont think rhaf eery ho I y
will believe these stories, at home certainly
I hop1; not. It eannut be denied ihaf we
In ive suffered somewhat. Eor a couple of
months after the Hull Run scrape we were in
great want of undereio'hing, but our wants i
have been supplied. For the first fortnight i
ot the cold weather there were but few over- !
coats and we suffered some from cold, but ,
lately a lar:e number of overcoats (beloag-
t)l to the first Regiment) have been distrib
uted. J should judge that one half of the reg
iment is now supplied with the ccats and we
expect the rest soon. To be sure, our old
gray clothes looked dirty and ragged, but
then they wore like iron, and were not so
bad as represented. Within a couple of
weeks pants have been distributed. Nearly
all the new recruits are uniformed through
out and three full campanks and about a
dczenfromtheoth.tr companies, lou will
see that at present we are pretty well sup
plied. Ry the way, great activity was dis
played in the quartermaster's department
about the time (Jen. Divis was hetet indeed,
should this activry be kept up for a week we
should be bountifully supplied. You will see
that we only suffered for underclothing after
the battle, and since the cold weather b-gan.
We certainly ought to le well clothed as it
is none too pleasant to upend these cold
nights shivering."
The "member of the House" in question I
am sure I can not determine any more than
I could find '-the man with a carpet ha' in
a crowd at the railroad station. For few are
the men who have not made some speech on
the question either inside or outside of the
State House.
(Jeneral Davis' cllieial return and this let
ter which sustains his view have both the
recommend of making definite statements.
They make positive, assertions and make, use
of tiie nine ouimon sense dial's in coiripu!-in-i
the sufferings of the soldiers H wi-Ii as
the remedies employed. Now with this in
mind I've in en examining the protest of so
solemn form which is claimed as a sterner.

Whiting did not deny that the Government i
u' out to come to taeir rescue. Nor do -3 he
by positive statement make out that, fhey

could tel! something awful if we c! o.-e."

never find courage to say what tbay think

frSTTlie Washington correspondent of
the Springfield Republican says :
Some of the prominent western pol
iticians are here just now and they do not
give Mr. Lincoln much peace. '1 bey in
sist upon it that the western people will
not endure inaction much longer that
they cannot afford to keep up such an 1 nor
mous expenditure for the bake of doing
nothing. Ren Wade is very decided in
his opinions, and the President is obliged
once in aw bite to listen lo them. Ren
sajsbe !oesn't believe the people of the
northern states care to pay forty millions
a month simply to retain .Maryland in the
Union, for that seems to be about all the
government is doing, or attempting to do.
Rut the grumblers may be mistaken. I
have seen some things within a day or
two look fs if we were roon to hear
of exciting times in tie vicinity of Manas
fas. 1 his, of course, may be a mistake,
but a prominent Senator, whose relations
n-iilt the administration are intimate, in
formed me that he was certain of a great
advance of our troops before tie end of
next week. An entire month is before
Gen. McClellan in which to do great
things if he desires and but a month.
It is said on very good authority that
Gen. Scott is opo.sod to any advance this
winter. This 1 believe is true.

signed the command of the National Ar

with the honors of along and brilliant ca
reer. This intelligence, though the step
has been fbi some days anticipated, will
affect with sudnes- all who read it for
all have long united in paying tribute to
the bravery, skill, ami patriotic devotion
of tbe veteran chief, and to part f rom him
is, like biddit.g adieu to a valued friend.
Ibe record of Gen. Scott's services is
too fresh in the memory of the people to
make necessary more than the most hasty
recapitulation: He was born on ibe loth
