Naval intelligence.

Commodore Winslow, formerly commander of the Kearsarge, has been ordered to the command of the Gulf Squadron, in the place of Rear Admiral Thatcher, who has been detached. This squadron now consists of twenty vessels, carrying one hundred and thirty-eight guns.

The gunboat Florida, now at the Brooklyn navy-yard, will soon be ready for sea. She is intended for the new West India Squadron, and Commander Henry Rolando, formerly of the Keystone State, has been ordered to command her.

The vessels composing our Mediterranean Squadron were at Lisbon, Portugal, at latest advices. They were expected to leave shortly for Spezzia. The storeship National Guard was to call at Gibraltar on her way to Spezzia and take on board the armament of the rebel privateer Sumter, which was left there when her name was changed to Gibraltar.

The supply steamer Massachusetts will leave the Brooklyn navy-yard on Saturday, 30th instant. She will carry mails, passengers and stores to the Gulf and Atlantic Squadrons. Parties wishing to send letters or packages to their friends in those squadrons can leave them at the Lyceum in the navy-yard any time before Saturday morning.
