From Charleston. Charleston, March 29. --All quiet, Weather dark and rainy Rumors of the enemy's approach prevail, but nothing authentic. It is also reported that the incoming steamer Ariel was captured last night by the blockaders. [Second Dispatch.] Charleston, March 30. --The French war steamer Milan will leave to-morrow, carrying off the French Consol, with his family and effects.--The reason of this is not known; but it was caused by dispatches brought to the bar on Sunday by another French steamer.

f the contrary is shown. This report was adopted by the board. In connection with this subject, we publish an order which has been reissued from the Adjutant General's office: C. S. Of America, War Department, Adjutant and Insp'r General's office, Richmond, Va., Nov. 6, 1863. General Orders, No. 144. To relieve prevalent misconceptions in regard to the poliey and practice of this Department on the subject of impressment, the following, being extracts of General Order of March 29th, is reprinted: Adj. And Insp'r General's office, Richmond, Va., March 29, 1863. General Orders, No. 31. In consequence of numerous applications made by various persons to the War Department, it is obvious that some misconception in regard to the instructions of the Secretary of War in relation to the impressment of supplies must exist on the part of the people, or that the agents of the Government have violated their instructions: Now, therefore, for the purpose of removing s
hat the enemy are scouting actively in the direction of Fredericksburg, and that Grant will advance as soon as the old troops return from their furloughs and troops can be brought from the West, which will be about the 18th of April. A great many deserters from the Yankee army are in the rear of the Yankee lines. Gov. Vance reviewed all the North Carolina troops, Ewell's corps, on Monday, and addressed an audience estimated from five to ten thousand. He will review the North Carolina troops of Hill's corps and address them to-morrow. From the Southwest. Dalton, March 29. --Our last advices from the front report the enemy quiet. Wheeler's cavalry are vigilantly watching the denouement of the late Yankee prospective campaign. Gen. Johnston is, no doubt, fully advised of their movements. The story of Sherman's having taken up his headquarters at Nashville is regarded as a blind to control Grant's "On to Richmond," and to enable Thomas to hold Johnston in check.
ged with robbing James Medders of a pocket-book and three dollars in money. A watchman said he had arrested the accused the night before on the complaint of Medders, who charged him with knocking him down and robbing him. The robbed man not appearing, the accused was paroled to come to Court this morning. Wm. J. Walker was charged with stealing a great-coat from John Abbott. While Abbott and others were playing cards at Mr. D. J. McCormick's saloon, on Main street, near 19th, on the 29th March last, the accused left the house. The coat was missed soon after, and the next day it was found in Mr. Wm. Tyler's possession, who said he had bought it from the accused. Mr. Tyler not being present, the case was continued this morning. Charles Johnson and James C. Ryan were charged with robbing Bryant Bass of $400 in gold and $400 in silver. It appeared that on Wednesday night, about 8 o'clock, Bass, who is a soldier, being very drunk, started from a house of ill fame on Cary str
teamer in the dry-dock, and brought out fifty prisoners. My loss at Union City and Paducah, as far as known, is twenty-five killed and wounded, among them Col Thompson, commanding the Kentucky Brigade, killed; Lieut. Col.

The following is the distribution of the fleet, recently employed there: The gunboats and mortar vessels have been withdrawn and are now at Pensacola. The Cowslip and Metacomet are blockading in the Sound. The rebels are building docks around the Tennessee for the purpose of lightening her over Dog River Bar. The Nashville is nearly completed. She will not be such a formidable appearing monster as the Tennessee. On Sunday, March 29, a picket boat belonging to the enemy, was captured by the Jackson. In it were five men and an officer, (master's mate.)--The boat, officer and men belonged to the rebel gunboat Selma.

The rebels have made no attempt to interfere with our communications except by burning the depot at Madison, west of Huntsville, last night, and running off a dozen prisoners.

Captain Howes, his family and five seamen of the Avon, had arrived at Plymouth on board a vessel from Mauritius. The Avon was bound to Queenstown with guano. Additional particulars of the destruction of the ship Avon by the pirate Florida, show that efforts were made to sink her by firing shells; but they were ineffectual, and she was finally burned.--Captain Howes, family and the crew of the Avon remained i
