More Confederate Captures--two Yankee schooners Seized.

--A bold and successful adventure, on the part of twelve members of the 15th Virginia cavalry, has resulted in the destruction of two valuable Yankee schooners and the capture of a large amount of valuables. The parties proceeded down one of the rivers emptying into Albemarle Sound one night during the past week, and, at an opportune hour, boarded the schooners and disarmed the crews. Both vessels were loaded with coal, cotton, and salt, and all the contents were saved and sold, after which the vessels were burnt. On one of the vessels the Captain was relieved of a fine gold watch, twenty $20 gold pieces, and a stout roll of greenbacks. The cargo of one vessel realized $23,000 in Confederate currency.
