Thee Great Naval Expedition.
This expedition, of which so much has been
hinted for weeks, has at length sailed. This is
the largest enterprise of the kind ever undertaken
on this continent. It consists of 9 vessels of
war, of which 3 are steamers and
_6 sailing, car
rying in all 326 guns ; 26 gunboats, generally
carrying a 11-inch Dahlgren' forward, and are
armed beside ;with one rifled gun, and from two
to four 24-pounders'; 11 ferry boats, capable of
carrying from five hundred to nine hundred men,
and are generally armed with six guns each;
and 33 transports, of which 30 are steamers and
3 sailing. All of these transports, which are
mostly vessels of the largest size, are fully armed,
and have crews, on board to work the guns:
These vessels carry, besldes . theirfull crews, a
force of between 30,000 and . 40,000 .picked sol
diers, half of them the best trained troops of Gen.
McClellan's command. The cry that the army
of McClellan needed more men, which has for
so many weeks vexed impatient souls, is now ex
plained. It was not our hind forces, but our na
val expedition, that needed more men. When
troops went on 'to Washington, -it was only that
others, better . drilled and more experienced,
might be sent to Annapolis in readiness to em
bark in the ships of the expedition.
Several months ago the Government began to
provide itself with surf-boats. The expedition
carries with it no less than five hundred of these
needed helps for landing troops—sufficient to
effect a simultaneous landing of 'a' great number
The material outfit of the expedition includes
a vast variety of objects, which, when °nuttier
ated, prove what knowledge and careful fore
thought is needed in those who superintend the
operations. It may be said that it contains
almost every thing which a community would
gather and take along if it were about to found a
colony in some deserted island of the ocean.
First and most necessary comes food. Besides
the rations provided for the troops while they
shall remain on board, the transports bear at
least three and a half months supplies of food of
every kind for the great army which is to be
landed. One ship carries out a cargo of water;
and the department has already chartered and
laden other vessels , to send down further supplies
of live stock, and other quelled provision,
An immense store of shot and shell is on board ;
as also many huge columbiads, mostly the vast
ten-inelv guns which do • such fearful execution.
The A I¢nlic and. Baltic carry the most of these,
but more are understood to 'be placed on other
vessels as well.
A great number of army transportation wagons
sire provided, over and above those which belong
to each regiment, and which the troops took
away with them. Extra camp equipage of every
description is also provided, and a great nuinber
of extra arms' and infantry equipments. This
looks as though the Government expected.to arm
the inhabitants among whotn the troops will be
landed. The expedition has nearly fifteen hun
dred horses. They are mostly on board the
Great Republic, Vanderbilt,. Ocean , ' Qu'een;'Baltic,
and Ericsson. One ship takes,., as supplies for
these animals, eight thousand bags of oats, and
besides this . otber vessels carry further supplies
of ctats and corn; ,while many tons of hay are di
vided among'' the transports. ,
Tare thozii,isaikd hash ele . of Cumaberjand coal have
beau taken:eking. This coal is orth e finely iMolceu
kind used by smiths in their forges, because it
gives a quick and very intense heat.
A curious item in the stores carried by the ex
psdition consists in several hundred footballs.
These were put on board fort the exercise of such
portions of the army as may remain in garrison
at the point where a landing is made, and Where
defences will, of course, at bnce be erected.
Where the blow is to fall, is known only to the
government and to the commander 4 in-chief of
the expedition. It was unknown. to every one
but General Sherman—the captains of the differ
ent ships sailing with sealed orders, which were
not to he opened till they got into a certain lati
tude and longitude. It is probable, therefore.
that the insurgents will know before we do where
the landing is to be 'effected:
Secretary Cameron, in hiiletter of instructions
to Gen. Sherman, in command of the expedition
to the Southern coast, says: Yon Will avail
yourself of the services of any persons, whether
or not fugitives from labor, who may offer them
selves to the National Government, and employ
them in such service as they may be fitted for,
either as ordinary employees, or if special cir
cumstances seem to require it, in any other ca
pacity, with such organization in squads, compa
nies, or otherwise, as you may deem
. fit to the
service ; this, however, not to be a general arml
ing of them for military service. Loyal masters
s loe assured that Congress will provide just
compensation for the loss of the services of the
persons so employed."
Pennsylvania and the War.
The Harrisburg Telegraph publishes from the-trffi
nisi documents, that Pennsylvania has now inthe
field 82,817 soldiers, and that as soon as the seven
teen regiments and six companies now forming
are completed, which will be in the course of, six
weeks the old Keystone State will have 101,070
men sn actual service. ' The - Telegraph says:
The quota of meri called for from Pennsylvania,
by the last proclamation of the President, was
76,000, and thus it is shown by the above, that
the authorities have succeeded in exceeding this
amount by twenty-six thousand men!
Taken altogether, we submit this statement
with pride, because it places Pennsylvania in the
position justly her due, of having, first, given
birth to the Declaration of Independence ; second,
that the Convention to form th,e Constitution was
held within her limits, and now she sends forth,
frost her midst, and from among her bravest and
most hardy sons, a larger force to sustain the Dec
laration of Independence and vindicate the Constitu
tion and laws, than has been contributed by any other
Commonwealth in the Union.

.Porn, traversing nearly 6;000 miles with- one
continuous wire, and bringing.those, two :points
within two hours' telegraphic time of each other.
It is easy.for. one ;to oii:erlook the' poetic ele-i
meat in, this great aehievement. so Accustomed'
have we become to'the telegraphic marvel. But
.what genuine grandeuria there inlhaewondrous
line! Prom the Hudson it stretChes across - seven
great' and populous Free States to the Missouri
River, a thousand miles—then acres the Great
Western Plains, amid solitude and savages, to
the Rocky MOuntains, as many leagues again—
then leaping across the mighty chain of the Cor
dilleras—thence over' bill and dale.to the range
of the,Sierra Nevada, and from thence Westward'
still to , the waters of- the Pacific and .the City of
the Golden Gate—till the two extrippes of ,the
Continent' re united by the magnetic wire, and
the dWellers by the Hudson hail the settlers on .
the Sacramento. •
It is stated that the next Westward extension
of the line;will be by the way of Behring's Straits
to the mouth of the Amoor river, to which point,
the Russian government is already constructing
a line, commencing at Moscow.
Jeffeison on ''Populai Loans.
NE.F-Yoax, Oct. 28, 1861
To the Editors of the Evening Poet :—The fol.
lowing letter, written by Thomas Jefferson, in
181.8, when the Government of the United States,
involved in a war with England, was debating
the question of a National Loan, will be found to
possess a singular pertinence at this time. It
will be perceived that he recommended the
course, since adopted by Secretary Chase, in the
issuing, of Treasury notes. As Mr. Jefferson
predicted, all classes of our people have invested
in the patriotic loan.
The original letter is now in the possession of a
lady of this city; and I am infprmed has never
before been published. Yours, respectfully,
'MONTICELLO, 1,4 . Ov. 6, 1813.
Pear Sir : —Your favor of October Ist came
duly to hand, and in. it the 'Memorial which I
now return. I like well your idea of issuing
Treasury notes bearing interest, because I am
persuaded they would soon be withdrawn from
the circulation, and locked up in vaults and pri
vate hoards, it would put, it in the power of
every man to lend his hundred or thousand dol
lars, though not able to go forward on the great
scale, and bd the most advantageous way of, ob
'taining a loan. The other idea of creating a
National Bank; I do not concur in, because it
seems now decided that Congress has not power,
(although -I sincerely wish they had it exclu
sively,) and because I think there is already a
cast redundancy, rather than a scarcity, of a
paper medium; The rapid rise in the nominal
price of land and labor ' (while war and block
ade •should -produce a•fall, )-proves the progres
sive state of the depieciation of our medium.
Ever, with great esteem and respect, yours,
Thomas Law, Esq.

From. the Rev. W. 11. •S'prague;
"I have had the opportunity of examining to some extent
the several volumes ololehauseu's Bi blicala)ommentary on
the New Testament, as they have successively appeared; and
amdeeply impressed with the conviction that it forms one of
the most valuable auxiliaries to - the study of the New Testa
ment to be found in any louguage. While it succeeds ad
mirably in bringing out the exact Meaning of the original,
the very mind of the ;Spirit, (if the testimony of the most
competent judges can be received,) it is a vast treasure of
Biblical learning, which will well reward the diligent atten
tion of the most careful student. In reading it. one scarcely
knows whether to admire most the anther's profound learn
ing, or excellent judgment. and taste, or thoroughly evan
gelical views of Christian, doctrine, or deep tusight into the
- makings of the spiritual life. Though the author did not
hoe to complete his design, the work : lots since been carried
forward by two other German scholars scarcely less distin
gnished than himself; so that the entire work; as far as it
has been published, may be regarded as one of the noblest
contributiens to Biblical learning, and as justly-entitled
to a place in the library especially of every Christian
