From Fortress Monroe.

Fortress Monroe, Aug. 11.
--The Quaker City has brought in the brig George B Baker and her crew in frons. She was captured off Galveston, and recantured off Cape Hatteras, by the New York. Four Confederates were afterwards placed on board the New York; but were chased by a gun-boat, and beached and burned. The crew escaped.

Apprehensions for the safety of Lieutenant Crosby and his scouting expedition are entertained. They have been absent four days.
