The Yankee Blockaders off Charleston. [Correspondence of the N. Y. Times.] U. S. Steamer Florida, off Charleston, S. C. March 26, 1862. On the 18th inst., we captured a purist — the ship Emily st. Pierre, of Charleston, S. C. 101 days from Calculla, loaded with 2,176 bales of gunny-bags. We think she has saltpetre under the gunny-bags. We took her crew off, except her captain, steward and cook, and sent her to Philadelphia for adjudication. There were five vessels in sight at her capture, which will participate in the prize money; The Florida, flag-ship, James Adger Flambean, Sumter, and ship Onward. The vessel is worth about $35,000, and the cargo about $45 or $50 a bale. It cost three guineas per bale at Calcutta. She belongs to Charleston; has "Charleston, S. C.," and the arms of Charleston and Augusta, Ga., pitted on the glass of her cabin doors, but has an English manifest, which, of course, is only a blind. We caught her running into Charleston.

Bitter attack on Gen. McClellan. [Special Washington Correspondence of the N. Y. Tribune, March 13th.] Why George B. McClellan was called to the onerous and responsible position he has held for the past seven months, will never be fully explained. When appointed Major-General of Volunteers by Governor Dennison, of Ohio, he was Superintendent of the Ohio and Mississippi Railroad, a dilapidated concern, which had long been on its last legs:--It is putting it in very soft language to say that his standing among railroad managers was not high. In used, the truth would bear me out in asserting that it was rather middling, if not decidedly low. He had put his name to a large volume five years before, as one of the American Military Commission to the Crimes. Of this respectable, though somewhat jejune work the public supported him to be the author. It was known only to a few that it was merely a compilation and translation from European publications — that an enterprising bookseller
From the North. The Norfolk Day Book extracts the following from the New York Herald, of April 14th. We would remind our readers of the fact that the Herald announces the steamer to leave for Europe on Wednesday. This fact will explain the big lie about Island No.10. The Herald says: "A vague uneasiness with regard to the Merrimac and the success of Major-Gen. McClellan's operations on the Peninsula operates to check business" The British war ships from Vera Cruz have brought the great bulk of the English contingent from Mexico to Bermuda, who are said to be in a bad plight, suffering from yellow fever. The steamers Bermuda and Herald, under English colors, were recently loading at Bermuda with military stores, intending to run the blockade at some Southern port. The prisoners and property captured by Gen. Pope and Commodore Foote, at and in the vicinity of Island No.10, are summed up as follows:-- Major-General1 Brig.-Generals3 Colonels10 Lieut
