The W. H. Webb.

--A letter published in the New York Herald, and extensively circulated by telegraph, from an officer of Old Abe's fleet off Pensacola, says that the steamer Niagara had captured the privateer steamer W. H. Webb, fitted out at this port. As the Webb is now moored at the Algiers Levee, the report of her capture is merely one of the numerous canards that the Lincolnites are busily engaged in circulating for the comfort and encouragement of Old Abe's craven-hearted mercenaries.--N. O. Enlisting
