The Southern navy.

--The navy of the Southern Confederacy consists of the following revenue cutters, seized from the U. S. Government: McClelland, 4 side guns, and one pivot, crew 35 men; Lewis Cass, one 68 pounder, crew 45 men; Aiken, one 42-pounder, crew 35 men; Washington, one 42-pounder, and the Dodge one pivot-gun. Besides these, there is the tug propellor James Gray, purchased at Richmond, which carries a 42-pound Columbiad; the captured slave brig Bonita, which is being changed to a war vessel; the steam gun-boat Nina, which mounts one gun, and has just returned to Charleston from a ten days cruise on the coast, and the steamer Everglade. The U. S. steamer Fulton, seized at the Pensacola navy-yard while in ordinary, carries four 32-pounders. It will cost $10,000 to put her in sea-going trim.
