From New York.

New York, April 28.
--In the Northern States, cities, &c., including private subscriptions, the sum of $11,230,000 has been contributed for war purposes. [This is a considerable "letting down" from previous accounts.

The steamers F. W. Brune, Fanny Cadwallader, and Wm. Woodward have been chartered by the United States Government, and left New York Saturday morning for Trenton, N. J., to take troops to Washington.

Several seizures of gunpowder on board vessels were made Saturday night.

About 15,000 troops are in quarters and destined for Washington.

Alderman Wilson's "Fighting Zouaves," 500 strong, are quartered in the old Government houses at Staten Island.
