From Charleston. the Federal fleet off Charleston — Conviction of a mail robber — capture of another prize, &c. Charleston, Oct. 29. --It was reported here on yesterday that a large Federal fleet was off this bar, but the report has not been confirmed. In the Confederate Court, Michael McNamara, charged with embezzling public money and robbing the mails, plead guilty, and was sentenced, on one indictment to three months imprisonment and a fine of one hundred dollars, on the second indictment he was sentenced to ten years imprisonment. The Couriers of this morning announces that an armed Confederate vessel has another prize in a safe harbor, and that the passengers arrived safely in Charleston on yesterday. Among them were Capt. Richard Bartlett, and lady, of the brig Betsy Ames, of Wells, Maine, Michael Teunesy, and six others.

lamanders; the four and five story brick and front fire proof, now going up, all have one or both of these indispensable features. Some of the streets are so blocked up with lumber-brick, and mortar, that teams are at times unable to get strong; common laborer get from $2 to $4 a day, without board.--The city supports four daily newspapers, a theatre, opera-house, several, churches, any number of negro minstrels and melodists, to say nothing of the institutions already enumerated above. At Wells & Pargo's banking-house and express office it is not uncommon to see tons of "sliver bricks" wheeled in and out in the course of an hour.

The Yankees on the Weldon railroad continue to destroy private property, though, so far as we can see, they have no object in view except the gratification of that spirit of malevolence which has characterized their proceedings throughout the war. It will be recollected that we mentioned the burning of the Davis house some two or three weeks ago, and we now learn that they have burnt the houses on the Wells place, immediately opposite. In the woods on the Davis place, near the railroad, the enemy have been busily engaged felling trees for several days past, and it is thought they are preparing for the erection of a battery there. It is reported that on Tuesday the Yankee pickets informed ours, in language more emphatic than elegant, that "Forrest was playing — with Sherman's communications, and that, if not checked, Atlanta would have to be abandoned." They had probably heard of Forrest's
