It is currently reported that the steamer Greyhound has been captured by the blockading fleet off Wilmington. She had eight hundred bales of Government cotton on board, and among her passengers was Mr. Edward A. Pollard, of this city, who was on his way to Europe to superintend the publication of his History of the War.

Nine blockaders have appeared off Wilmington since the exploit of the Raleigh.--The fleet was absent only a few hours.
