EXPEDITIONARY VESSELS —AN ATTACK
HY TUE CONFEDERATES APPREHENDED —
* TUE NORTH CAROLINA JUNIOR RESERVES,
ETC. m
A letter from Grant.; army, a part of
which is dated at Fortress Monroe on
the 30th ultimo, gives some intelligence
of interest. It says:
Nearly all the steamers composing the
portion of the expeditionary licet, under
the command of Major-General Butler,
which sailed from this port several weeks
since, have returned in safety, notwith
standing the severe;, storm experienced
along the coast and while anchored oil'
Wilmington.
The Santiago dc Cuba and Fort Jack
son have been the only vessels attached
to the naval Heet which have as yet ar
rived from oft* Wilmington, and the latest
advices received from Admiral Porter re-
Jrresent him as still subjecting Fort
c isher tfi a vigorous bombardment.
The Norfolk Regime of to-day con
tains the following correspondence from
off Fort Fisher, dated the 27th instant:
The shore is strewn with broken boats,
wh» hhave been wrecked in one way and
anoJrter. They lie scattered along the
beach from Fort Fisher to Masonboro'.
Many of the vessels have withdrawn
from these waters, and the bombardment
may be said to have come to an end.
The Hons. Montgomery and Francis
P. Blair arrived here yesterday, and left
at a late hour last night on a visit to the
army operating against Richmond.
Two hundred and fifty of the North
Carolina reserves, captured by Major-
General Butler in the vicinity of Fort
Fisher, disembarked from the steamship
Baltic yet- te relay afternoon, en route to
Point Lookout, Maryland. The condition
> ■*$. these prisoners was exceedingly
iMtched, many of them being without
'*^MJ»* ct * ***d overcoats, ami in some
'ir** shoeless and hatless. Two-thirds
- *m the number apparently had not yet
gj£fe*ached the age of twenty-one, while the
W remaining third of them ranged between
W tlie years of twelve and sixteen.
Fifty picked men of the One Hundred
•nd Sixteenth New York volunteers, unTler
rommand of Captain Thomas P. Reilly,
Lieutenant VV. J. Moseby and Lieutenant
Walter Thorn, now control Farrow's j
inland, near Dutch gap, iv the James I
river. A i-cconnoissancc was recently
made by this command to a point oppo
site the Ilowlett House battery, which
resulted in the driving* in of the enemy's
pickets and the entire dispossession of
the enemy, giving us entire control of
this important point. Among the re
suits of this movement was the destruc
tion of the pontoon boat which had been
for a lons time* sucre--*-fully used by Lhe
enemy in making cxpl -ration- to that
side of tho river.
Major-General Butler, nccompanicd by
his stall', returned to his headquarters in
the Army of the James at a late hour
last evening from North Carolina, and at
oncß resumed command, in place of Ma
jor General Ord, who returns to the head
of the Twenty-fourth corps. Mr. Ben
'aain Logging, historian; Mr. (table,
father of Lieutenant Greble, who will be
11 —illlll ml as gallantly falling at Big
Bethel early in the war, and Mr. Grier,
of Pennsylvania, all of whom accompa
nied General Butler on the expedition
and returned with liiki, are guests of the
General to-night.
Yesterday forenoon and afternoon the
right of the enemy on this front gave
signs of activity; so much so, indeed
that an attack * was expected by our
forces. It was subsequently iuwertained,
however, that the movements of the
enemy only contemplated a change o
troops on their part, to the,extent o
withdrawing one division and substi
toting another on a particular portion o
the line visible from our signal tower a
Crow's Nesw
lt is very generally believed here, am
preparations are already made amply to
meet the contingency, that the enem
contemplates an early and heavy attacl
on one of the flanks of this army; pro
bably with a view of seizing and holdtnj
the pontoon bridge spanning the Appo
mattox liver at I "pint of Itocks. The
rebel troops evacuating Savannah are
doubtless, on their way to reinforce Lee
In addition to these, Breckinridge's force
are expected to appear on this front, ant
we may-confidently look for a renewal o
active hostilities, initiated by Lee, at ai
early day.

ANOTHER SCOURGE FOii TIIK TTANKEE COM
MERCE.
The Confederate cruiser Shenandoah,
formerly the British steamer Sea King,
is actively employed in the destruction
of the Yankee merchant vessels on
the Atlantic. Captain F. W. Hansen, of
the brig Susan, who was captured on the
4th of November, while on his way from
Cardiff to Rio Grande de Sul with a cargo
of coals, has arrived in New York city, I
in the bark Grace, of Baltimore, and
furnishes the follow ing account of the !
Shenandoah's doings:
On the morning of the 4th of Novem-1
her, about 2 o'clock, we made a large
steamer in the distance. At 3 o'clock
she tacked aud stood after us, and at
daylight she was off the starboard quar- j
ter, half a mile distant, when she hoisted ;
the English iiag and tired a gun. We i
set the colors, but did not heave to. She j
then hauled down the English flag and 1
fired another gun, at the same time hoist- j
ing the rebel ilag. We then backed our j
yards, and were shortly afterwards
boarded by an armed boat from the
steamer, which proved to be the Shenan
doah. They took possession of tlie brig,
and ordered the captain and mate to re
pair on board with the ship's papers.—
This occurred in latitude 4.30 north, lon-1
gitude 26-40 west from Greenwich. After j
examining lhe ship's papers, the captain |
of the pirate ordered the brig to be sunk,
taking out of her everything that could j
be of any use, such as provisions, can- j
vass and rope, and allowing the ship's j
company to take away all personal ef-1
fects, except the nautical instruments.
The steamer is a full-rigged ship, with
rolling topsails, iron lower masts, bow- j
sprit, steel lower yards, and capable of
steam ing, under full sail, clevca knots.—
She was built at Glasgow, by Messrs.
Stevens A Sons, in 1863, and was for
merly called the Sea King, and, by the
officers own report, had been em
ployed on the Ijondon ami Bombay
lino of stcxmierF. She is now armed
with four Ob pounder smooth-bore guns,
| two 82 pounder, ritles, and two 12-j
pounder smooth bore guns. She had
forty three men on board, nearly all of
whom had joined from captured vessels
She was fitled out at sea, or at Funehal
harbor, hy another steamer which had
been sent out from England for the pur
pose. She had a clearance from London
lo Bombay, which they said r-he had on
board at the time.
In my opinion, _he isnot. fit to fight
any vessel, as she is not nMe to n«onny
s
of her guns, except the small ones, and
for those she had only one or two rounds
of ammunition. She is commanded by
a man who is very imprudent in boarding
vessels. In capturing the ship Kate
Prince, which I subsequently witnessed,
he exposed his whole broadside without
knowing whether she was a man of war
or a merchant vessel, and neglected to
S have his men at quarters. The crew
were so situated that they could have
been swept away by a discharge from an
opposing vessel. It astonished mc greatly
to sec his management in this respect, as
he said lie had been brought up in the
American navy. By his own statement,
his name was \Vardcll,. a native of Mary
hlarrd, and a graduate of Annapolis. He
j was formerly in command of the United
j States si oop-of-war Saratoga.
tAll who were on board as prisoners
ust acknowledge that this same Cap
in Wardell, as well as his officers,
I treated us very kindly, and were, in
j every respect, perfect gentlemen.
Previous to the capture of the Susan,
the bark Elena, of Boston; bark E. G.
! Godfrey (place unknown), and schooner
| Charter Oak, of San Francisco, had been
J captured. The oilicers of the two first
! named vessels were sent into llio Janeiro
I by a Danish brig.
The Kate Prince was bonded, and con
veyed me and Captain Gilman to Bahia.
From thence we sailed in the bark Grace,
jof Baltimore, for New York, where we
! arrived to-day. About live hundred dol
i lars' worth of private property, which I
I had on board, fell into the hands of the

attempted escape of confederates
from Johnson's island.
The Sandusky (Ohio) Register of Wad*
lesday says:
About one o'clock yesterday morning,
by a preconcerted arrangement, a rush
was made by twenty-four prisoners upon
the centre of the guard line, on the
north.west side ofthe prison on Johnson's !
island. The prisoners had improvised |
eight scaling ladders by attaching cleats
to beards and strips—very light, easily
| carried, and just the thing for scaling the
high prison fence. The rush upon the
guard at once occasioned tlie proper cry,
"Turn out the guard I " accompsned by
quite a rattling fire from the guard line";
but the rush was so impetuous, and by
so many prisoners, that, in spite of the
guard, four men out of the twenty-four
i scaled the fence, passed the guard, es
| caped from the island, crossed the north
I channel of the bay, and went some dis
| tance upon the peninsula. Of the others
who did not get through, one re
ceived a shot cutting away his coat
at the waist, and was knocked down and
captured. Another, Lieutenant John
B. Bowles, son ,of the president of the
Louisville Bank, Kentucky, was shot
twice through the body, about the same
I instant, and killed. The other eighteen
found the work too hot, and retreated to
their barracks.
The rush on the guard was immediately
followed by the long roll and the proper
signal gun. By the way, this is the first
"long roll" occasioned by any demon
stration ofthe prisoners since last March ;
and the only other one was on the night
of the '2ad of September, when at least
one third of the prison fence was swept
away in an instant by a tornado.
Under a standing order, all the troops
were promptly in position, ready to give
proper attention to the* rebels should
any further efforts be made yrithin the
enclosure. To make sure of any who
Bight be lurking on the island awaiting
iter opportunities to elude observation,
three companies of the Sixth V. R. C.
were ordered out to patrol the island and
make a thorough search. At the same
time, several detachments of the One
Hundred and Twenty-eighth regiment
were ordered off in pursuit of the es
caped prisoners, who had passed the
picket on the northwest Bide' of the
island, receiving a fire from them at long
range. The flying rebels made the best
time possible, but were hotly pursued;
and with soldiers on their rear and both
Hanks, and the loyal citizens of the pe
ninsula (who had been aroused by the
discharge of the 20-pounder* Parrott) in
their front, their escape ioon terminated
in recapture.
The morning roll-call and muster of
prisoners showed that but four of them
had left the prison. They were all bnclc
and returned to their home in the " Bull
Pen " this morning. The unwilling de
nfffens of that locality arc full of their
schemes and threats, and seem disposed
to make the very most of their opportu
nities while the ice is practicahW as a
highway; and it remains to be seen
whether the future, with whatever aid
they may receive, will be very produc
tive of gratifying results to themselves.
Three of the fugitives were seen run
ning "cross the peninsula by Mr. 6. R
Wrig .t, -a gentleman who has a vineyard
there. As soon as he heard the firing,
he got out with his gun, and seeing the
three escaped prisoners, called to them:
"Stop, or I'll put a hole through you as
big as my hat! " At this they halted,
and he inarched them back to quarters.
Another was brought in by the guard
yesterday morning.
THE YANK.EE BECBUrriNG, AND WHAT COMES
OF IT.
The Yankee papers arc often filled with
I notices ofc new regiments raised by re-
I craiting, large numbers of volunteers, etc.
j liow all this works may be gathered from
j the following letter from Grant's army,
i published in the New York Times, which
| is not a "Copperhead*" paper :
We hear oi* the President calling for a
j force of several hundred thousand men.
i The papers tell us gleefully of the ra
pidity with which enrollments are taking
place; presently we 'near every town and
village boasting that it has " filled up its
quota"; but where are tiic soldiers? —
The bounty money has been paid, the
men enrolled, we will suppose ; but where
are they '. That is the question—a ques
tion, too, fraught with such momentous
interest to the nation that it is to be
I hoped every loyal voice will keep shout
j ing it at Congress until "bur law-givers
feel the necessity of looking into it more
j narrowly. Let people go and inquire of
the noble fellows lighting in the field,
and they will soon leant* what has be
come of many of these dearly-purchased
men in buckram —costing something like
one thousand dollars each before th y
I>a\-u lift... i a BBOBr in wl* I *** #
As an illustration of how some of
them disappear, here is the record of one
single regiment among those that have
come to my notice: Of three detach
ments of substitutes sent from Concord,
I New Hampshire, to joi a the Fifth New
j Hampshire volunteers, amounting to six
hundred and twenty-five men, one hun
! dred and thirty-seven deserted on tke
I passage, leaving only four hundred and
eighty-eight to arrive at the regiment.—
Uf the four hundred and eighty eight
who got to the regiment and were as
! signed to companies, eighty-two deserted
to the enemy from picket line; thirty
six deserted to the rear; four have been
discharged as utterly worthless, their
physical incapacity being so glaring, and
lof such long standing, that it must
J have been known at the time of enlist-
I ment; five have been sent back to Con
cord, to have their cases of enlistment
investigated, by order of the War De
partment; and two have been dis
charged by order of the War
Department. Thus, out of six hun • I
dred and twenty-five of these bounty- j
tempted warriors sent to one regiment
only since August last, there are only
three hundred and fifty-nine left; and,!
as these have come to tlie army through
the same venal iniluences, and probably
| gone through the same loose or fraudu
j lent examination, it is impossible to tell
I how many more may follow suit, in spite
Jof the death penalty before them. 1 use
the term fraudulent advisedly; for, out
of the four discharged as utterly worth
less, one man had one leg several inches
shorter than the other; one had hernia,
that had made him a cripple for many
years past; and the two others were
such impracticable imbeciles that any
imbecile, withqut one particle of medical
knowledge, most have seen at a glance!
that they were utterly incapable of any;
duty whatever, mental or physical.— j
These are shameful revelations, but thej
sooner the public are made acquainted
with the existence gf such monstrous!
abuses, the sooner do we stand a chance
0/ seeing them rectified.

AMERICAN PROSPECTS
From the Liverpool Albion: ] "**
Amongst those that are born of wo
man there beats not a bolder heart than !
that of Jefferson Davis. We are not
ashamed to confess to a large amount of;
hero-worship for the man for when his j
Northern foes can find no better name j
than rebel and slave-owner. Never un
duly elated by success, never dismayed j
I by-adversity, his voice ring*- out clear !
I as a trumpet-call on the darkest day that;
befals his country. Not Cato himself
spoke to his little Senate at l.'tica with
more dignity and steadfastness than docs
the Southern President when addressing
his suffering fellow-countrymen. Four
years have passed since the tremendou.
struggle began with which his name
will be forever identified; and, i
American Figures can be trusted, (a
point on which we alwayjP feci se
rious misgiving-,) those four years
have witnessed a greater amount o
bloodshed and a larger loss of human
! life than any other four consecutive years j
since the Deluge. The loss of ten thou
sand men on a single day has become
quite a common event; and a conscrip
tion of o c, two orthrce hundred thou
sand at a time no longer excites astonish
i meet. 'I be v -• of war has surged fron
LNorth to S- jidftomEast to West
Kbcen waged by land and sea, o;
ceanand in harbor, and up thou
oi miles of river—in the midst o
c, <>n spacious plains, and o.f the
oi* lofty mountains. Professional
I soldiers and amateur generals have tried
| their ha ads upon i f ; attorneys and poli-
R> have brought their talents to its
-.very invention of modern times
yen pressed into its service. New
d ships,cannon ofhitherto unknown
c, rifles of novel constrnction, new
3 and new tools, all have becnuse*
d, and yet the end has not come*
I oucn energy, such obstinacy, such deter
mination to win, have been shown on both
sides as were hardly ever seen before,
i and such an amount of money expendec
jas no other country ever spent in a pe
riod ten times as long, li, in the early
I days of this struggle, we were ever c.is- I
Ml to sneer at the efforts of either
we must now, all of us, confess
ire had underrated both their inten
and their probable performance-,— j
.-. ■.-> a struggle of heroic proportions on
both sides. But, come what may, it is I
to the weaker party that the highest j
I amount of admiration is justly due; and i
I what is true of one is doubly true of the
other. And now, ai't-.-r vicissitudes in-;
j numerable, the tide has turned of late
against the South; and, doubtless, sore!
discouragement has fallen upon many a
heart which not long ago was exulting in ■
| the sense of victory. It is not, indeed,
a great many weeks ago since we were
told, on what was assumed to be good !
authority, that discouragement was ;
universal throughout tlie Northern.
States, and that the cry for peace —
peace at almost any price—eras upon
every tongue. The result shows the folly
of generalizing freely from particular in
stances, and yet only forty-eight hours!
ago there were many faint-hearted friends j
of the Southern cause in a state bonier- '
ing on despair about its future prospects. !
So many men are ready to rush from j
one extreme to its opposite ! i;»it clear
across the waters comes'the brave voice
of Jefferson Davis*, there is no quaver in i
his tones—he speaks with no uncertain
sound. Few a.> are his words reported
to up, we cannot for a moment doubt his
resolution ; his voice is still for war! — i
Dark as is lhe present hour, he has
passed through hours as dark before, and
through the gloom he believes he sees
the coming dawn. When New Orleans
was taken, when Yioksburg was surren
(tared, when Stonewall Jackson fell in
the noonday of his glory, a sadness and !
discouragement spread over all the
Southern Confederacy ; and as their un
daunted President "raised anew their
spirit then, so we are persuade! he will I
do new. We shall not, of course,
think of denying that the exhaustion of;
men and means iias been immense since
those events took place; but it must be j
homo in mind that, whereas the Southern
armies are still entirely composed of,
white men, the Northern army, according
to a recent speech, of Mr. Lincoln, num
bers two hundred thou-and blacks
amongst its soldiers. And Mr. Lincoln
I adduced this fact as a reason Gag main
taming the policy of emancipation. There
remains, therefore, to the Southern Gov-!
ernment the expedient of resorting to
the negro element for the repletion of |
their ranks; and though this will, no I
I doubt, for obvious reasons, be a last re-1
I sort, we feel no doubt that the operation
; will, by a long period, precede submit
| sion to the Federals. We see no reason
to doubt that the negroes will fight f or
! their masters as willingly as they work
j for them, and we imagine a Southern _c
! grois quite as capable of fighting v
j Northern brother. So far, therefore, as
I the supply of men for their armies i- con
■ cerncd, we do not think that Che South is
j as yet any worse off than the North.
