B., which splendid frigate was recently here on her way home from Jamaica, left Portsmouth on the 12th under steam for this station.

The Driver, 6, paddle wheel steam sloop, Commander Horatio Nelson, has received, in addition to her other armament, a 100-pounder Armstrong pivot gun. The D. is said to be exceedingly well manned, both in officers and men. The Rinaldo, 17, sc., Commander Hewett, V. C., is just commissioned. The Challenger, 22, sc., corvette, Captain John J. Kennedy, C. R., has a compliment of 280 officers and men. Another first-class steamer and six gunboats will soon be ordered to join the fleet under the command of Sir Alexander Miln, who has received special instructions for his guidance in the difficult and ticklish work before him.
