New York Herald, as comprising the latest accounts in connection with these gentlemen: The rebel Commissioners and their Secretaries occupied the captain's cabin and messed with him at table. When they first came on board the San Jacinto Capt. Wilkes made the following address to the Commissioners: "Gentlemen — I shall endeavor to make you as comfortable on board as my means will permit. I wish to have it distinctly understood, however, that this is a vessel be longing to the Governmm to give up their keys. A thorough search of their effects was made in their presence, and no papers or dispatches of any sort were round. Their keys and baggage were then delivered to the prisoners, who were shown to their quarters. Commodore Wilkes has not yet made his official report of the capture of the rebel Commissioners. We shall not be surprised if his report should state that he authorized Lieut. Fairfax not only to take the Commissioners, but also to seize the steamer Trent.
