The Embargo at Cairo.

--A dispatch from Cairo to the Cincinnati Enquirer says:

‘ Eight hundred troops from Chicago, including the famous Zouave companies, arrived here Monday night, with six pieces of cannon, and have gone into camp at Cairo. Three thousand more are expected here this week.

An embargo on boats is to be made, and no steamers will be allowed to pass with provisions or contrabands of war.

’ It will be seen by the news which we publish elsewhere that the Tennessee munitions constituted the first seizure.
