The next expedition.

--A Yankee correspondent writing from Fortress Monroe, gets off the following portentous squib, relative to that other expedition now being prepared against the South:

Hereafter the rebels must look to their own homes, and relinquish their hopes of possessing the Federal capital. The war will be carried into Africa. Let them take notice in time. While they are cannonading at the gates of Washington, and thundering their violent threats almost before the President's house itself, the long strong arm of the Government is encircling their very hearthstones; and where a spirit of obedience to its mild requirements is not manifested, it will be demanded on pain of such penalties as it has a right to demand. The traitors will soon have occasion to rue the hour when they took up arms against the most kind and beneficent Government that the sun ever shone on, and first to feel the strength of the Federal arm will be the State of South Carolina.
