Seizure of Powder Magazine, &c.

Norfolk, April 20
--The Powder Magazine was seized last night, by order of Gen. Taliaferro. It contained thirty-two hundred barrels of powder, a large quantity of loaded shells, immense number of shrapnel, shot and percussion caps.

The Navy-Yard knew nothing of our work. We have not been attacked as yet. This morning the whole force of the city is under arms.

The South Carolina troops are provided for and are expected to-day.

Nothing can be done against the Navy-Yard without heavy ordnance.
