Tlic Now York Jfirald, of tlie 20th uit.? publishes a long editorial on tlie subject of tlie groat Yankoe armada. Tne article is interesting, as showing the Yankee impressions with respect to the strength of the expedition, their vie as with reg.ard to its mode of operations after gaining a foothold on our coast, and their hopes as to its speedy results in "crushing the rebellion" and ending the war. \Yc copy what the Herald says on these points: OUR FIRST GREAT NAVAL EXPEDITION TIIE REAL COMMENCEMENT OF TIIE WAR. Our first grout naval expedition against our rebellious 44 Confederate States" having set sail for its destination, we are at liberty to spread before our readers, as we do this morning, the element and materials, of the land and naval forces, of which this formidable expedition is composed. Our copious and accurate details cover a large proportion of our available space; but we cheerfully yield it to the universal and absorbing public interest which this important enterprise commands. STRENGTH OF THE ARMADA. Nothing to compare with it as a maritime militarv movement, has ever been witnessed on this continent. Ships-of-war and transports* the squadron numbers over seventy vessels, including many of the very largest in our naval and commercial sdrvicc. The naval strength c of the fleet is not less than 500 guns, combining, to a great extent, the heaviest calibre with the latest improvements. The land forces of the expedition, thoroughly equipped, organized and disciplined for the duties of this special service, may be set down at about twenty thousand men, exclusive of a large body of laborers. The freight of the expedition embraces horses and cavalry equipments, intrenching and building implements and materials, field and siege artillery, provisions, munitions and warlike stores of all kinds suggesti ed by the wants of a la rye military colony on ! a hostile coast. The naval branch of the expedition is under the direction ol Com. Sam'l. F. Dupont, and the land forces are under the ! command of Gen. Thomas \V. Sherman? thoroughly educated, experienced and ap | proved officers. TilK OHJKCTS IN* VIEW. From this brief recapitulation the reader 1 may conjecture the objects contemplated by , this imposing squadron. Many millions of dollars have hewn required to put it afloat; but the results, we have reason to anticipate, will i amply compensate us for these and all other expenditures incurred in behalf of that great | and sacred cause,u the integrity of the Union." AVc consider this expedition, in fact, as practi! cally marking the commencement of the war ; against this southern rebellion. Thus far our battles and skirmishes have been the mere pre i inninary rcconnoisances, incidents ainl accidents of a great campaign. If tliey have reI vcaled to lis an enemy cunning am' quick in 1 : all the stratagems of guerrilla warfare, masked i batteries, sudden surprises ami mysterious re- j I treats, the net result is the undoubted supcn- 1 ority of the Union soldiers in courageous fight-j 1 ing and in all the other solid requirements of | the tented field. Otherwise, excepting the brilliant little afi'air at llatteras inlet, the campaign to this day has been nothing more than a desultory border war, with no results of a decisive character.DESTINATION OF TIIE FLEET. This great naval expedition carries the war into the vital parts of this rebellion. Where it will strike it is hardly necessary to conjecI turc. Among other details upon the subject, ive give to-day a table of all the ports, bays, j harbors, inlets, sounds and estuaries of our. Southern coast, with their depth of water at high and low tide. From this table, consider- ; ing the heavy ships of the expedition, and its objects of a deadly blow or two at this rebellion, the intelligent reader may take his choice of one or two from half a dozen different landing places. The naval department of Commodore Dupont is limited between JI sit- I tcras and Key West. Within these limits < there are two southern ports hearing the name i of lieaul'ort?one in North and the other in South Carolina?each commanding a good i depth of water, and the one or the other, or I Charleston, or some one of the inlets of Geor- j gia, would constitute a desirable base of ope- < rations for our army and navy, in view of future inland movements into the heart of the I f All VitilfoC! TIIE l'l.AX OK OI'KIIATIONS AKTEll LANDING T1IK YANKEE TKOOl'S. Let us suppose, however, that in North or South Carolina, or Georgia, this expedition lias made a lodgment, the question arises, what will he its plan of operations? V/e presume that the land forces will he put on shore at a point of debarkation suitable for a naval rendezvous; that General Sherman will at once proceed to fortify his position against any probable land attack, and that a large proportion of the fleet will straightway return to Fortress Monroe for more troops. In this way, by the first of J >eeeinber, Gen. Sherman may find himself at the head of sixty thousand men, and he may eat his Christmas dinner in the centre of an army of one hundred thousand. Then, changing his programme from occupation to invasion, he may march through the heart of the Cotton States to the Mississippi river, or coastwise, with the fleet co-operating with him, to Charleston, to Savannah, to Mobile ami to New Orleans. I T11K EXPECTED EFFECT IN* VHUilXIA. In either event the war will now be transferred from the border Slave States to the Cotton States, where it properly belongs, and , thus with or without a blow from Gen. MeClellan, the great rebel army in Virginia will soon be demoralized and dispersed. Nor can there be. in any intelligent mind, the shadow of a doubt that, when relieved of the rebel forces of the Cotton States, Virginia will be speedily restored to the Union, through the spontaneous reaction of her loyal people. So ' with all the bonier Slave States. The rebel forces of the Cotton States hold thorn in snl? < jeetion, and when they arc relieved of their ^ Southern invaders the reign of secession, even in Tennessee, will he ended; for the Union forces of the great "West and of Kentucky, will he moving southward with the retirement ' of the rebels. Meantime, from the last circular of Mem> i ininger, the Secretary of the Treasury of the rebel Government, that spurious government is confessedly under a financial pressure which it can lint, longer sustain while the enttrm ntm. ters arc arc as evidently on the verge of re- ' hellion against it. Tlioy demand relief; Mr. Meinminger demands money ; hut how are they to get it, unless they can sell their cot- ^ ton? Our blockade locks them up ; they have | consumed their available resources, for themselves and the rebel annv in cash, clothing and . . 1 shoes. The winter is upon them. What are they to do. HOW TIIK COTTON I'LANTHUS W1I.L UEMBRACE ' T1IE OPPORTUNITY.*' This naval expedition will settle the <juestion. It will open one or tvo Southern cotton ports, and upon the test of allegiance to the ^ I'nion, the Southern cotton planter will he invited to bring forward his cotton and ship it to England. Beginning within the lines of oc I II | 'cl I I W I I Ul VII I kJVIILIIUI II ill 111}, Oil I ] 111 IU I] 1 ?> Ill cotton thus secured, will soon spread a whole- < some infection throughout the cotton States, I to the extent of a decisive counter-revolution. We know that the majority of the substantial i people of the Cotton States were dragged < headlong into this suicidal rebellion. We are assured that they are anxiously awaiting the hour of their deliverance, and we believe they , have had enough of Yancey's Utopia of a Southern Confederacy to rise against it,, with the very first encouraging opportunity. THE GLOIUOU8 AND FINAL RESULT WHEN IT WILL IIAPI'EN. This opportunity will soon be made mani test, and the consequences, we apprehend, will convince even Lord Palincrston of the moral and material power of the government of the United Saatcs in this war for the Union. In a word, from this great scabord expedition, from our still increasing armies in the border slave States, from the desperate financiM straits of the rebel treasury, from the terrible exactions and sufferings which this rebellion has brought upon our Southern people, from the I increasing signs of a Southern Union reaction, a^d from the approach of winter, with its sc vere necessities, there is every reason to hope that this great Southern rebellion will be nt- ! terly subdued and forever extinguished by the next fourth of March. I "* What tIk* VaiikccH Think of Hatterns?An l^ueliuntiiig; Spot. The following letter from llattcrns Inlet, says the Charleston Mercury, is published in ] the Indianapolis Journal. It gives a droll, but we doubt not truthful, account of how the Yankees are enjoying themselves on the North Carolina coast. Four Clark, IIatteras Inlet, ) October 1, 1801. j After two days of gloomy storms, the sun is .1. -i . -? *?* Miming uu? ii u11 us ? ilii nujMuai iiuai. juicrc I fire many peculiarities in this isolated spot. Cut off from the main land for supplies, and suspicious of the few fishermen that visit us, we look to the ocean for every new sail that brings us food and news from home. Our band is playing "Our flag is there," and it is >till there on the coast of North Carolina. The sea bounds the view on ono side and Pamlico sound on the other, and, in connection with the beauties of the spot on which we arc encamped, it bring to mind the hymn, "Lol on a narrow nock of land, ^ Botwixt two boundless seas I standi" I The verse need not to be finished, for most of us arc rapidly becoming Univcrsalists?believing thjtt we receive our punishment as we l?o along. The dry Tortugas may be held up us a terror to offenders. It has no terror to us?for we arc on the sandy Tortugas, where >aml craps reign supreme. When it storms the fine sand mixes in equal particles with the fain, and a fleet of horizontal rain and sand tills eves, month and food, with judicious impartiality. The sugar sands itself. Fort Clark is built of sand, piled up, covered with turf to keep it from blowing away. It mounts ten guns and is bomb proof. Going along the beach half a mile to the inlet, you I'oine to Fort Hattcras?a little more sand, a little more turfi a few more guns. When the tide rises everything is covered with water; when it falls everything blows away. So lreary is the spot that neither will birds sing nor grass grow near it. The first night we got here we slept in the sand with 110 blankets. For a change we now sleep on a soft plank in i muuii \ . aUUii uiiiV/Uia iii; aj?uuu liiauiuii till one side gets sore; at a signal tbcy turn over, ami remain in that posture till the other ude is worn out. It is a good country for licalth?chills, fevers, cramp, cholic and other tnxuriers are plentiful. To-day I saw a tree three feet high?an evidence of the luxuries of vegetation. Some of our men had jet black beards in Indiana, but all are now a sanity hue. " Sandy" is a pet name in the regiment. 1'arson BkoWNI.ow.?The Nashville Banner, extinguishes the piospect of l'arson Brownlow becoming a martyr.
