The Expedition Down the Mississippi. The expedition now being prepared at Cairo, to operate against the rebels, is one of much interest. It will probably proceed against Columbus and Memphis; but possibly it may go up the Tennessee. A description of the marine part we copy from an exchange: The expedition will consist of a fleet of 11 gunboats, 38 floating batteries, and 28 river steamers. Thereai'e now over 200 pieces of cannon, of the heaviest calibre, at Cairo, ready to be mounted on them. DESCRIPTION OF ONE OF THE GUNBOATS. The dimensions are to be: Length over all, 175 feet; breadth of beam, 61J feet; depth of hold, 6 feet. The sides are sloped at an angle of about 45 degrees, and nothing but a plunging shot from a high bluff could strike the surface at right angles. They are sheathed with wrought iron plates 2| inches in thickness, securely bolted to each other and through the heavy three-feet oak timber beneath. Each plate has been severely tested by shots from rifled can...

December 16.—The news from England has occasioned no marked excitement among public men, the indignant tone of the British press having been anticipated; hence the absence of expressions of surprise. _^ As to the Administration, there is reason to believe that neither the President nor any member of the Cabinet will be diverted in the least degree from their present course of conducting the, war. A few days ago the House of Representatives passed a resolution calling on the Secretary of War .to furnish information concerning the disaster at Ball's Bluff, but the General-in-Chief considers that it would be injurious to the public service to transmit any reply at present in satisfaction "of the request/ \. , : .. _^ Col.
