Important from Nassau.

--The following extract of a private letter from Nassau conveys an important hint:

‘ "I am of the opinion that, during this winter, blockaders will have more to fear from enemies in their crews than they will have from the blockading fleet. Hundreds of Yankees are now here; and I suspect that it is a settled plan to capture vessels by stratagem at sea. Spies are all around, and it may be that you may hear of several Roanoke affairs this next moon. An attempt was thus made to capture the Owl, which failed, and eight of the crew are now in irons, one of them holding a Yankee commission as master's mate."
