The British iron steamer Antona, haden with Enfield Rifles, a battery of brass field-pieces, powder, medicines, boots, tea, etc., from Liverpool via Havana, was captured off Mobile, by the United States steamer Pocahontas, while attempting to run the blockade.--(Doc. 97.)

General Rosecrans, from his headquarters at Murfreesboro, Tenn., issued a general order, announcing to the commissioned officers of the rebel army, taken prisoners by the forces under his command, “That, owing to the barbarous measures announced by President Davis, in his recent Proclamation, denying parole to our officers, he will be obliged to treat them in like manner.”

The expedition under the command of General Samuel P. Carter, reached Manchester, Ky., on its return from East-Tennessee.--A meeting was held at Beaufort, N. C., at which resolutions were adopted, denouncing the course of Governor Stanly, in his administration in that State.
