al crew — at night turning the vessel's head North, and in the day putting her course South again for Charleston. This made her passage an extraordinarily long one, and was the cause of her being captured by a United States vessel off Hatteras. Under the circumstances shown, an acquittal was asked and readily obtained from the jury. The defendant is a native of Massachusetts. The owners of the vessel, to whom she is saved by his conduct, ought to reward him for it. All the rest of the crew were found guilty of piracy. From Gen. Rosencranz. Washington, Oct. 29. --A dispatch received here to-day from Gen. Rosencranz states that he had advanced some five miles in the direction of the rebels, and was preparing to make another forward movement with a view of driving the rebels from that entire section of the country. He had intelligence that for several days they had been retreating. He intended to follow them as soon as the necessary arrangements could be made.

The killed and wounded of the rebels, according to their own statement, is about 80. The Home Guard appears to have come out strong.

The battle at Leesburg--interesting description — an affecting Incident, &c. The Charleston Courier, on Tuesday, the 5th instant, has another letter from its special army correspondent, ("Personne,") dated Leesburg, October 29, which far surpasses all others from the pen of that gentleman, in vivid description and intense, soul-thrilling language. Below will be found some extracts, which are richly worth the room they occupy in our columns: Evidences of destruction around the battle field. In passing over the ground, the first thing which attracts attention is the shattered condition of the trees and bushes. Limbs hang by a mere shred; in many instances trunks are perforated with a dozen balls; the bark has been tern off by glancing bullets, and occasionally you see great blots of blood and brain splashed around, where some unfortunate fellow has taken shelter to secure a shot. In one hawthorn bush no taller than a man, and not more than three feet in diameter, none o
Arrest of Capt. Scott. Of the U. S. Steamship Keystone State. The Philadelphia Inquirer, of October 29. contains the following particulars of the arrest of Capt. Scott, formerly of Virginia: The steamship Keystone State arrived at this port on Friday last, as has been already announced, bringing, as a prize, the steamer Salvor, captured off Key. West while attempting to run the blockade. As soon as the announcement of the arrival of the Keystone State was telegraphed to Washington an order was issued by the Secretary of the Navy for the arrest of Captain Scott, of the Keystone State, the charge being that of leaving his station. The order was telegraphed to Commodore Turner at the Navy-Yard, on Saturday, and the arrest was accordingly made. It is understood that the Government considered that it was the duty of Captain Scott to have taken his prize into Key West, and to have condemned and sold her at that place; and it is intimated that the search for the privateer Sumt

the capabilities of the expedition, while Port Royal, I thought, would meet both in a high degree. I therefore submitted to Brigadier-General Sherman, commanding the military part of the expedition, this modification of our earliest matured plans, and had the satisfaction to receive his full concurrence, though he and the commander of the brigades very justly laid great stress on the necessity, if possible, of getting this frigate into the harbor of Port Royal. On Tuesday, the 29th October, the fleet under my command left Hampton Roads, and with the army transports numbered fifty vessels. On this day previous I had dispatched the coal vessels, twenty-five in all, under convoy of the Vancalia, Commander Haggerry, to rendezvous off Charleston, not wishing to give the true point. The weather had been unsettled in Hampton Roads, though it promised well when we settled, but off Hatteras it blew hard. Some ships got into the breakers, and two struck, but without injury.

[From the Bermands Royal Gazette, Oct. 29] We have authority for saying that Admiral Sir Alexander Milne, K. C. B., in his ship the Nile, may be expected here from Halifax in the last week of the ensuing month. The A miral will be accompanied by a large fleet of British vessels and several French vessels of war. A man-of war may be expected with a middle month mail from Halifax, and it is probable she will bring further notice relative to the Admiral's movements. The squadron is subsequently destined for Mexico, in c
