But three persons died on the voyage. Raid on light boats. The New York Herald has the following dispatch from Washington: On Saturday night last, a party of rebels, numbering about one hundred and fifty, under command of Lieutenant Taylor Wood, of the rebel navy, and nephew of Jeff. Davis, left the Ycomico river in sloops and small boats, bound on a raid to Smith's island, with the design of destroying the light boats.

They have for some time persuaded themselves, and are now fully convinced, that if the South would but break with the institution of slavery we should be ready to step out of our neutrality and recognize the Government of President Davis. We venture to assert that there can be no foundation whatever for this persuasion, though we are not altogether surprised at its prevalence.--The more ardent partisans of the North in this country have so strenuously and persistently represented the whole war as a mere struggle for slavery on one side and emancipation on the other, that the Federals may, perhaps, have regarded our neutrality as due only to our national abhorrence of the Southern institution.
