A Yankee steamer captured.

Savannah, June 3.
--The Yankee steamer Water Witch was boarded and captured, with her entire crew, after a desperate fight, early this morning, by a detachment from the Savannah squadron. Lieut. Pelot, who led our men, was killed, together with the pilot and a few others.

The Water Witch was a somewhat distinguished craft in the old navy. She figured some years before the war in the Paraguay expedition in South America. She must be a pretty substantial vessel, and her capture is a brilliant affair.

The enemy have been repulsed at Baldwin, Florida.
