t be at once acknowledged. The naval and military expedition against Wilmington, under command of Admiral Porter and General Butler, has failed to accomplish its work. It has returned to Fortress Monroe after an absence of two weeks. The immenof the James, would leave the rebels but a limited land force for the defence of Wilmington, induced the supposition that Butler's co-operating army would have light work. As for a rebel naval force, there were none that could give us a moment's feaized those of Mobile. We are enabled to give to-day both the official report of Admind Porter and a statement of General Butler, as well as a special report of our own correspondent with the fleet. Every one will read these documents to find ouhe fort by the fleet was of the most imposing, skillful, and courageous character: but the estimate of Porter and that of Butler differ greatly as to its effects.

From the Yankee papers it will be seen there is a great controversy amongst them as to who is to blame for the recent disgraceful failure of the Butler-Porter expedition.

It matters little to us how this question is settled, but we hope the quarrel may be long and heated. Our people know that, under Providence, the successful repulse of the grand armada was duel to the skill of generals and the splendid courage of our troops. We have nothing from Savannah but what we find in the Northern papers. Our extracts on this subject will be found interesting reading. General Hood's official rep
