Suspicious craft off South Carolina.

Charleston, Jan. 29.
--The papers this morning say a large war steamer was seen off the harbor Saturday at dark. She showed signals and stood to southward. It is surmised that she is still hovering about the neighboring coast.

Last night a negro came to the city and informed his master that a suspicious craft was seen near Church Flat Stone. There were 20 men on board, but without arms or uniforms. They are thought to be about to pounce down on the plantations.

The Legislature adjourned last night sine die.
