It is proper to say what every one with the expedition believes, that had it not been for the false infotmation of a guide, the principal object in htatting the plUheu villi tml cxpeiuion would have been accom The man who thus dared to tritie wdfaic of his country, when it became cv mn no ident that ono of the most important ob jects would prove a failure through his wilful connivance, was immediately hang ed upon the spot, thus raeetiLg a fate he so richly deserved. The command had mo ved forward to fax within the enemy's lines long before any alarm was given to the authorities at Richmond or Gen. Lee, and wiicn it did become known in Rich mond that a force of Uuiou cavalry had crossed the Rapidan, so secret and well planned had been the expedition by Gene ral ricasonton, and so well executed by Gen. Ki!pat;:ek, they had not the most distant idea of its wh.Mcabouts, when, in fact, the command was at that time alraoft within sight ol Richmond, and a fun hours later was burling leadeu messengers of death from a battery placed insiU the de fences of that city into its very suburbs.

S. steamer fit -usatonic may be of interest to many of your readers, I will attempt a biief statement of facts: Ou the evening of February 17tb, tho llousatonic was anchored outside the bar, two and a half miles from Breach Inlet battery, and five miles and three-fifths from the ruins of S i inter : ion on the blockade. T! her rsuu sta- liero was but lit- tie wind or sea, the sky was cloudless and on the blockade two or three miles away. The usual lookouts were stationed on the forecastle, in the gangway and on the quarter-deck. At abjut 8:45 of the first watch, the of- li'-er ol the deck discoveiel. while lookina . - i in tho direction of Breach Inlet batterv. a ' slight disturbance of the water like that produced by a porpoise. At that time it j appeared to be about one hundred yard ' distaut and a beam. The Quartermaster j examined it with his glass and pronounced it a school of fish. As it was evidently ncaring thc ship, orders wero at once giv en to slip the chain, beat to quarters, ami call thc captain. Just after issuing these orders, the Master's Mate from the fore rastlfl renorted tho snsnicions AnnMriincs j to tho olHeei. in chargc. Thc officers and men were promptly on deck, but by this time the submarine Machine was so near us that its f u: in an l tho phosphorescent light produced by its motion through tho water were plainly risible. At the call to quarters it had stopped, or nearly so, and then moved towards thc stern of the ves sel, ptobably to avoid our broadside gura. When the Captain reached our deck, it was on the starboard quarter, and so near as that all attempts to train a gun on it were futile. Several shots wero fired into it from revolvers and riflec; it also receiv e 1 two charges ol buckshot from the Cap tain's gun. The chain had been slipped and the en- I giaes had just began to move, when the ; Ctnab came, throwing timbers and splin ! tcrs into the air, and apparently blowing 1 off the entire stern ofthc vessel. This was ! immediately followed by a fearful rushing of water, the rolling out of a dense, black smoke from thc stack, aud the settling of the ve'sel. Orders were at once given to clear away the boats, and the men sprang to tho work with a will. But we were filling too rap- r Th. H,lin AÖ lnrch .nA j .i-:-..- oue -nil . half miles distant. As- sistance was promptly rendered by that vessel to those rem a n ing on the wreck. At muster next mommf, five of onr number were found oiissing. The Captain was thrown several feet iuto the air by tho force of the explosion, and was painfully but not dangerously bruised and cot. It was the opinion of all who saw the strange craft, that it was very nearly or entirely nnder water, that there was n , smoke stack, that it was from twenty to thirty feet in length, and that it was noiseless in ber motion through the water. ' It was not seen after the explosion. The ship was struck on tho starboard side abaft the mizzen mast. Tho force of the explosion seems to have been mainly up- ward. A piece ten feet square was blown out of her quarter deck, all the beams and canines being broken transversely across. ; cai lines neing Droken transvei i The heavy spanker boom was its thickest part, and the watt t distance was white with split i as broken in water for some nters of oak 1 n n .1 mnfl HUH lhuc. i ...
