The movement was executed with admirable precision and fine effect. These steamers, with the Louisiana, January, and Graham, constitute the military fleet of eight vesselse Deans, which, together with the Empress, moved into the landing. At eleven o'clock last night, the fleet and embarked troops remained awaiting complete readiness and orders to start.

The captains of the several vessels were published by us yesterday. It was expected that the boats would all start together at about daybreak this morning.
