The Tallahassee.

The Tallahassee has, so far, captured two ships, four barques, five brigs, twenty schooners and two pilot-boats, of which five were bonded and the rest destroyed. Her officers are: Commander, John Taylor Wood; Lieutenants, William H. Ward, M. M. Benton; Chief Engineer, John D. Tynan; Acting Master, Alexander Curtis; Assistant Surgeon, William L. Sheppardson; Lieutenant of Marines,--Crenshaw. The Yankee papers published a statement that the surgeon, Dr. Sheppardson, was one of the "Chesapeake pirates." This is untrue, as Surgeon Sheppardson was in a Confederate port at the time of the Chesapeake affair.
