From Florida.

--Accounts received from Mosquito inlet, Florida, of a late date, state that several parties belonging to Major Dickinson's cavalry made a concerted move on the inhabitants living near the seaboard and captured a number of them, the charge being that they had taken the oath of allegiance to the United States Government, and had been in the habit of trading with the blockading vessels on that station. One object of the raid was, however, to supply their ranks with conscripts as well as the punishment of those who have been in open and friendly intercourse with the Yankee forces. Among those captured were several deserters from the Confederate army, who, until recently, had succeeded in eluding arrest by camping in the swamps contiguous to their residences.
