ajor. Cairo, Jan. 8. --Flag Officer Foote, with the gun-boats Essex, Lexington, and Tyler, made a reconnaissance down the Mississippi yesterday morning. He went within 200 yards of the range of the rebel batteries. On his return, he was fired at by the rebel gun-boat Mohawk, to which he replied, but the shots all fell short. The flag officer is highly satisfied with the reconnaissance, and has examined all points on the river as near as two miles to Columbus. A despatch from Cape Girardeau yesterday, says that a detachment of the Seventh Illinois Cavalry, while scouting, had captured Major Williams, of Jeff. Thompson's band. The Surveyor of the port of Metropolis has seized a large quantity of gold face, morphine, and other costly drugs, intended for the rebels. The goods were from Cincinnati. The English war vessel which arrived at Annapolis, Md., on the 6th inst, is still anchored off the harbor. As yet none of the officers or crew have gone ashore.
