llion than that which is impending or already decided. Brilliant affair in Texas--two Yankee gunboats repulsed and destroyed — Failure of the expedition. The great Texas expedition, so often hinted at in the Yankee papers, has been repulsed, with the loss of two gunboats composing it. The 19th Army corps, under Ben Franklin, left New Orleans on the 4th inst., in transports, accompanied by four gunboats, to capture Sabine City, a point of great strategic value on the line dividing Louisiana from Texas. They arrived off the city on the 8th. A correspondent of the N. Y. Tribune says: In the course of Monday night the entire fleet gathered in the vicinity of the Sabine. The gunboats and vessels of lightest draught crossed the bar, and preparations were made for the attack. Capt. Crocker, of the Clifton, was to feel the enemy, uncover the batteries, and ascertain his strength and position. Gens. Franklin and Weitzel examined the shore of the Pass to find the most eligi

xamined the shore of the Pass to find the most eligible point for landing the forces. The Clifton steamed up the Pass, occasionally throwing a shell from her rifle guns at the only work visible — an earthwork of six large guns. No reply was made. She steamed within easy range of the fort, and received no response. She then returned to her former position without drawing the fire of the enemy. When the Clifton returned the order of battle was immediately arranged. The gunboats Clifton, Arizona, and Sachem, were to engage the enemy's works, while the Granite City was to cover the landing of a force of 500 men of-Gen. Weitzel's division, selected from the Port Hudson heroes, and composed of two companies of the 165th New York, four companies of the 161st New York, and a detachment of the 75th New York regiment, under command of Capt. Fitch, of the latter regiment. The Clifton opened the engagement with a shell from one of her large pivot guns, which burst inside the enemy'

ibune comments on the news in a long editorial, which contains much interesting information about the strategy and movements of Rosecrans and Burnside. We copy a portion of it: One of the greatest battles of the war was begun at eleven o'clock on Saturday, continued during the day with varying fortune, and was not decisively concluded at nightfall. The position of the field on which it was fought is not indicated by the dispatch clearly enough to be accurately placed on the map. Chickamauga Creek flows northeasterly into the Tennesseee from the mountain slopes in the northeastern angle of Georgia. Parallel ranges seem to lie on either side of it, and Gen. Rosecrans's line of battle extended along its banks. But his advance, under Gen. Thomas, was at Lafayette, some distance beyond the river, more than a week ago, and other columns were moving toward that point. We infer therefore, that for the sake of a strong defensive position, and in order more rapidly to concentrate his

prompt and rapid movements that the Commanding General, Franklin, managed to get away. From Charleston. The New York papers have news from Charleston to the 16th inst.: Gen. Gillmore was mounting heavy guns on the upper part of Morris Island for the purpose of bombarding Charleston, and, although Fort Sumter was still held by the rebels, the siege was progressing favorably. The fire from the rebel works on James Island had proved somewhat annoying to the working parties, but casualties were few. Gen. Gillmore had issued a congratulatory order to his troops, and a copy is to be placed in the hands of every living officer and soldier who has participated in the campaign on Morris Island. One of the crew of the gunboat Ladona, arrived at Philadelphia, gives some details of the unsuccessful attack on Fort Sumter.--He says that the first cutter and gig were captured. The second cutter was to have effected a landing upon the debris of the fort, but finding a newly-con

It is beyond question that reinforcements were sent to Georgia. -- Accounts were received last week of the presence of Longstreet near the scene of action, and in the dispatch we print this morning, we have the positive nd unless the Virginia campaign is reduced to the garrisoning of Richmond, it is impossible to suppose that such a proportion of that army has been transferred to Georgia soil.
