More arrests — Origin of the Hatteras expedition.

New York, Aug. 29.
--Wm. Patrick, a Wall street broker, was sent to Fort Lafayette today.

Ellis B. Schnabel was also sent to Fort Lafayette by a Connecticut Marshal, charged with preaching secession, advocating peace, and other treasonable doctrines.

David Wilmot, author of the Wilmot Proviso, is reported to be dying from a cancer in the stomach.

The Commercial to-day says that the Captain of a Maine vessel, captured by a privateer in Mayo, had escaped, and brought valuable information regarding the fortifications at Hatteras Inlet. The same paper says:

‘ "Doubtless are this he has guided a naval expedition there, which will operate in the reduction of the batteries."
