Martin, carrying Mr. Yancey. He has been exciting some curiosity here by his long, light hair. This he had cropped and otherwise disguised. He has tried to run the blockade, for no one believes he is going to Matamoros. This schooner has run the blockade several times. Once she carried over Dr. Hugh Martin, (brother of the Captain,) our former Consul at Matamoros. The schooner Charlotte has also sailed for Matanzas; she goes under the English flag. Yesterday came in C. P. Knapp, bringing the Captain of the English steamer Labaun, whose departure from this port some time since I wrote you of as being under suspicious circumstances. I was told that she intended to evade the blockade;
