Yesterday was an unusually dull day for these upon whom devolves the responsibility of catering to the public anxiety through the press.
There was little or no news from any quarter, and rumors were not near so numerous as usual.
A dispatch was received in the early part of the day and posted upon the bulletins, that an engagement was going on in Florida
, and that strong hopes were entertained that our forces would capture about three thousand of the enemy, with whom they were contending whether this hope has been realized we are not able to say, as no later information with reference to it had been received up to a late hour last night.
The latest intelligence from the coast will be found under our telegraphic head, which will be read with interest.
