Affairs in Norfolk.

A letter from Norfolk says there are five Confederate officers and ten men confined in a small room at Fort Norfolk. Among them are the following: Captain Gilmore, of Baltimore; Captain or Lieut. Correy or Casey; Lieut. Wann; Wm Brown, of Baltimore; and Dr. Green of Pittsylvania. Dr. Green thinks he is here for the notorious Dr. Bucker. The ladies of Norfolk have been very kind to them, and until very recently have supplied them with every delicacy, &c; but General Dix has lately issued an order prohibiting the ladies from visiting them. In a room just across the passage are confined a crowd of negross taken up for stealing, &c. Not withstanding all this, the officers and men are cheerful. Since Gen. Veile's order requiring merchants to take the oath or close their stores, all stores have been closed except a few shops kept by Yankees and Jews. Robberies are the order of the day — citizens' smoke houses are broken open nightly and their masts, &c., taken.
