Port Royal. / Letter writers have communicated so many facts respecting operations herej and have indicated movements, thus thwarting plans, that Gen. Sherman and Com. _Duponfc have determined to suspend communications thence. It is understood, however, that something important is about to take place. The sloop-of-war Savannah has arrived bringing intelligence up to Tuesday, the 28th ult;, which is to the effect that the expedition to the South sailed from that point on Sunday, the 26th ult., including all the light-draft steamers, eight gunboats and 8,000 troops. The principal part of the expedition went outside ; but one or two small steamers with light vessels in-tow went by the inside passage, The object was understood to be an attack on Savannah, commencing at Fort Pulaski.

Pennsylvania Railroad. One great clause of the increased income of the road, is the closing of the Mississippi against the freight of the West. This cannot continue very long. The Board, therefore, instead of making a large dividend, has expended the surplus net revenues, after declaring the usual dividends, in the extension of the road to the Delaware riv«r, the erection of an elevator, _wharres and depots at that terminus, and in increasing the equipment of the line. This increased equipment will, after the Mississippi trade shall cease to need it, be in demanded by the Erie and Philadelphia line, which is now possessed by the Pennsylvania road, and is progressing toward completion.

The Bwnside Expedition. Information of the success of this enterprise has been received by the way of Norfolk. It seems, by the rebel statements, that Gen. Burnside attacked Roanoke Island on the 8th, and captured it after three days' fighting. Two vessels of the rebel flotilla were captured, and the others were sunk or dispersed. Three regiments, under Gen. Wise, had lately gone to Roanoke to oppose Burnside; all are supposed to have been captured. Com. Lynch commanded the rebel flotilla.

A Perilous Night. THE BATTLE OF BR00KXYK. Have you visited New-York, or Brooklyn, the beautiful eity across the river, where tens of thousands of the' business men of New-York, have their homes ? It is called the City of Churches. Eighty-five years ago, Brooklyn was*woods, hills, swamps, creeks, and corn-fields; a cluster of rude houses, with but one church. This'church Washington appointed as the rallying place of his broken army in the darkest night of the Revolution. The battle of Brooklyn, or battle of Long Island, as it is called in history, was one of the hardest fought of the Revolutionary battles, and the most disastrous. Col. Hazlet's well armed and well disciplined Delaware regiment; Lord Sterling's brigade of Southrons; Smallwood's gallant Marylanders, in scarlet and buff; the bold yeomanry of Con'necticut, in their homespun jerkins, all under brave old Gen. Putnam, fought side.by side, heart and hand with each otherin their love of country and freedom. , Washin...
