Letter from the Gulf shore. Picayune Bailer and his great "Expedition of the Southwest"--running the blockade — the schooner "Widder," alias "an drexella"--the fight for her — slaughter of Yankees — burning of the "Jerrie Richards"--success of the "Loene" and the "Glara"--an incident at sea — Launch of the Wonderful gun boat "Morgan" --the Cotton planters make a Discovery, &c. [Special correspondence of the Dispatch.] Mobile Feb. 1, 1862. The case of Picayune Butier's great "Expedition of the Southwest, " which left Yankeesdom with such a flourish of trumpets and such magniloquent boastings of doughty deeds intended, furnish is no exception to the manner of large beginnings and small endings which has characterized all the heavy undertakings of the enemy since the war began.

the binnacle, alone, saved the schooner from being discovered by the watch of the steamer. A splendid gun-boat. christened the "Morgan," as she touched the water, was launched day before yesterday. She was planned and constructed by Mr. H. D. Bassett, a Confederate States naval constructor, and all those who know anything about the merits of a vessel, say that if she does not establish his fame as a naval architect he will not have his deserts. Her lines are the perfection of all the pnsport information contraband under the threatened act of Congress. I only wish that Mr. Secretary Mallory could see this remarkable vessel, so well built in so brief a time. I think he would order two or three dozen like her at once, and put, Bassett at the head of his whole corps of naval architects, The Morgan is 202 feet extreme length, and 38 feet 8 inches beam. She was launched with her machinery on board. Another gun-boat of about the same size, but of a different model and by a diff

Week after week has passed, until hope of a fight deferred almost sickens the impatient spirits of our soldiers. Two weeks ago Butler evaluated the Island in great part, and was gone, no one knows whither, with the great body of his forces for about ten days. He left two or three thousand sick on the Island. Now he is back again, the spies tell us, with ten or twelve thousand of his Yankee Paladins, and his anchorage is crowded with many all of shipping. The poor devil

claim for rendition, or for subsequent indemnity, set forth at length in a late issue of the Advertiser and Register, of this city, as I suppose that so desirable a journal is on your exchange list. Another schooner, the "Jessie Richards," loaded with cotton, grounded in running out of the harbor at night, and being in range of the blockaders next morning, was burned by her crew to prevent her falling into the hands of the enemy. The crew escaped to shore in their boats. The schooner "Clara" arrived safely from Havana in this port a few days before. Another schooner, the "Leone," accomplished no less a feat than running the blockade with a valuable cargo. A passenger by this schooner relates an incident of the perilous voyage from Havana, which smacks considerably of the romance of the seas. On the night before they approached the coast, when dark and ugly weather prevailed, a little stir was heard on deck which brought him up from the cabin. The schooner was rolling i

ver nine hundred tons, builders measurement, her draught, with machinery, armament, stores, coal, and crew on board, will be scant five feet. Yet she is sharp as the sharpest clipper afloat, and will carry an armament which many an old- fashioned sloop-of-war would stagger under. I would like to give a more particular description, but I am fearful that I might be guilty of making our loyal-malls transport information contraband under the threatened act of Congress. I only wish that Mr. Secretary Mallory could see this remarkable vessel, so well built in so brief a time.

rough it on the Gulf coasts in winter, with no dry camping ground, no good water, and no chances of plunder. The bad water, the bad weather, and the lack of fresh grub, have made the hospital department the most important branch of the "Expedition of the Southwest." The elements, led to the attack by the great Commander of the Universe, are our firm allies, and do the work of shot and shell quiet effectually. Set down the "great expedition of the Southwest" as another Yankee Jasco. McClellan might further carry out his grand strategy of "diversion," and still find that quadruple the force he has yet been able to place in the Gulf would not divert one man from the Army of the Potomac. We have enough and to spare at every point of importance, to hold it against any force. Since my last, a lively business has been done by the "blockade breakers," with mixed success. I may not say how many vessels have successionally get out of port, nor may I say what have successfully got
