s evil can be stopped I leave wiser heads to determine. I have spoken of the matter as it exists — in a spirit of levity, may be — but nevertheless have called attention to some patent truths, But, joking aside, this is a matter that calls, at least, for an examination, not so much on account of its being a present outrage as on account of the evils it entails upon the future. A bout the Burnside fleet. Like "his illustrious predecessors," (intended for sarcasm, as Artemas Ward say,) Burnside went to sea in a storm, after allowing six weeks of lovely weather to escape him. Soon after the expedition sailed a huge wind arose, and from that time to this old Boreas has kept out his scouts in the shape of storm-clouds, which scud rapidly across the sea. The ocean has been rough and turbulent. It must have been a musing to have seen the condition of these transports yesterday and day before and to have seen eight or ten thousand soldiers paying their devoirs to Hatteras as the ship r
nder Buell, south of Louisville; its grand flotilla of shell- proof vessels, rafts, and flats collecting at Cairo, with land forces in proportion for a descent of the Mississippi; are but a part of the grand programme. They are making an equally vigorous demonstration from the South. The rendezvous of ships and troops at Ship Island are part of the grand combination; and if news does not speedily reach us by telegraph of its taking some other destination, the inference will be strong that Burnside's expedition is intended also for operations against New Orleans. Whether it be from the direction of Ship Island and the Pearl river, in conjunction with Butler; or from some point west of the Balize, in co-operation with Butler's movement from the east, must be solved in the sequel. It would be a stupid affectation to despise these formidable demonstrations of the enemy against the Mississippi River; and yet is would be weak to indulge anything more than a prudent apprehension on th

Our cavalry, which is splendid, scout and picket the country to our side of the river; but as to what is being done on Lovell's side I can hear very little, as the country is deserted by the residents and the military of the two departments — Bragg's and Lovell's --do not act in any sort of accord or conjunction. Our people have heard that Burnside's expedition passed Hatteras on Tuesday, and expect to hear of its arrival in our waters about the 16th or 17th inst. It is the general belief that its destination is some point within this department, and that its intent is either a grand attack on Pensacola, or on the harbor defences of Mobile, in conjunction with a land movement from the rear by Butler. This is a two-handed game which we can play at; and at Pensacola, too, there is every preparation to give them an awful whipping.
