Late from Key West.

--Hon. McQueen McIntosh, Judge of the Admiralty Court at Key West, reached this city on Thursday last, direct from that Island. We learn from him that the Federalists there carry things with a high hand. The Key of the Gulf had been suppressed, and its editor, Mr. Ward, forced to leave. The mail steamer Suwannee, Capt. Forbes, had been seized, and pressed into Lincoln's service. The yacht Wanderer, which had gone into Key West for the purpose of procuring a new register, was also taken possession of and refused permission to leave. No arrest was made of the intention to retaliate for the capture of the Atwater, and preparations appeared to be making for a foray along the coast.

Judge McIntosh left Key West in a sailing vessel, which, although leaving with full permission, was brought to by a shot from the Crusader, boarded by an officer and searched, and then allowed to pursue her voyage without further molestation.--Tallahassee Florida, 26th.
