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.

catheads, gangways, and on the paddle-boxes, are stationed sentries, relieved every two hours, peering into the gloom, on the lookout for lights or dark objects. Captain Goldsborough peace the deck, cigar in month, long after midnight. Guns are cast loose forward, and the quarter gunners and primers stand ready to point and fire at any suspicious object which the darkness may reveal. Every night we are called to quarters, whether anything is in sight or not. On the night of the 22d ult., all was still on deck, as I have described, when suddenly, about half an hour after I had turned in, I heard the call to quarters, the anchor slipped, the chain splash as it fell into the water, and the bell strike four; "go ahead fast." A light had been seen some distance ahead, but had disappeared at the moment we slipped anchor. We crowded on steam and shaped our course in the direction indicated by the lookout. In a few minutes the light was again reported from the masthead, and
begin the attack — and they began it at Baif's Bluff. Then was exhibited a fearful amount of incompetency, of slaughter, of treachery.--but the Major- General Commanding, after Banks had crossed the Potomac, ordered his return, and refused to accept the battle tendered by the foe. A long, geting Indian summer, with roads more hard and skies more beautiful than Virginia had seen for many a year, followed, carrying October, with its dry soil and hammy sun, onward, till December melted into January. This seemingly special invitation of Providence for an onward movement, instead of being accepted, was whiled away in ostentations parades and gala-day sham fights, where the common soldiery mounted their white gloves, and the Major General Commanding bestrode his favorite charger, the unthinking crowd gaping with wonder, while belies from the Northern cities showered their an esteem smiles all over the scene. As the new year approached, "Why don't be moved" said some impatient obser

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

hich, if the source be reliable is very important. The news from Yorktown is not of a very material character. Three slight skirmished occurred on Friday, but resulted in a trifling loss to our forces. One thing appears certain, that the rebels are concentrating their troops to resist the onward march of General McClellan, and by Gen. Magruder's orders, which we publish to-day, it will be received that the rebels had their defensive works in good order, and ready for action on the 13th of March, in anticipation of this very movement so recently made by Gen. McClellan. It also appears certain that one hundred thousand rebel troops are a Yorktown, and about fifty thousand more in the neighborhood of Richmond and Gordonsville. It would further appear that it is not the intention of the rebel leaders to allow the Merrimac to come out and engage our vessels in the neighborhood of Fortress Monroe, but merely to keep our ships-of-war all there; watching the actions of the rebel trai

as well as the "Soldier's Lodge" --where several thousand soldiers had received gratuitous lodging and meals — was in successful operation. The report of the Committee on Devotional Exercises was then read by the President of the Association; Mr. J. B. Watkins, It gave the history of the rise and progress of the "daily union prayer meetings," under the auspices of the Association, tracing their origin, or rather their resumption, to the day of "fasting and prayer," observed on the 28th of March last throughout the Southern Confederacy. These meetings had resulted in the revival of hope, the restoration of confidence, the confirmation of faith, the love of prayer, the edification of saints, the awakening of sinners; and eternity might unfold their mighty agency in the achievement of our recent victories, culminating in that on the hence historic plains of Shiloh. The President then stated that our beloved sister State of Alabama not only sent forth her gallant sons to bear

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
