JIT bile taking the hatch way off, I was confronted by the officer of the boat, who presented a pistol at my head and staled that the vessel was his prize, to the Confederate Suites, and ordered me to leave for New York. Immediately aller, or while transferring my crew, the schooner M. A. Sliindler came up and was quickly hauled to and captured. While trans (erring the crew of the latter, the schooner Kate Stewart came along, but she having several lady passengers on board and being an old vessel, was ransom ed on giving bonds in the sum of $7000.

FROM WASHINGTON. BROH THE ARMY OF THE POTOMAC. Vessels Sent in Pursuit of the Eebel Piratée. Capture of a Rebel Blockade Runner. Reply ol the President to Krtntns Corn· ins and others. Washington, June 13. The latest intelligence from the Rappahan ; nock is up to noon to-day. A letter sunt by Stuart in response to one from Gen. Pleasau ton, asking lor a Hag of truce in order to bury our dead and provide for our wounded, says in eflect, tlial the dead have been buried and the wounded well cared for, and that the pris j oners have been sent to Richmond, but that 1 no registry of their names was kept in eainp.

Upon receiving intelligence οΓ the piratical transactions on the coast, the Navy Depart ment promptly despatched vessels in pursuit of the pirates. Kour vessels lelt New York Saturday night, three sailed from Hampton Roads, and others were to follow on Sunday. Lieut Commander Morris, of LT. S. gunboat Port Royal, has forwarded to the Navy De partment a report of Acting Master Van Seik, who commanded a boat expedition from that vessel on the 2Jid lilt., resulting in the eapture of sloop Fashion, having on board fifty bales Sea Island cotton. This vessel was 45 miles above the town of Alexandria, waiting an op portunity to run the blockade. She was lying at the time in the vicinity of the rebel en campment, but was captured without any re sistance. The President, under date of the 12th, has replied to the letter ol Krastus Corning and others, who were otlleers of the public meet ings held at Albany l(Hh May, requesting his earnest consideration of the resolutions passed on that occasion. The resolutions, he says, promise to support him in every constitutional and lawful measure to suppress the rebellion. He has not knowingly employed nor shall he knowingly employ any other. Dillering from the meeting, that certain military arrests and proceedings following them, for which he is ultimately responsible, arc unconstitutional, he argues the question to show that the pro visions of the Constitution quoted have no a|> plication to the case in hand, because the ar rests complained of we're not made for trea son, that is, not for the treason defined in that instrument, and upon the conviction of which the punishincut is death, nor yet were they inade to hold persons to answer 'for any capi tal or other infumous crimes, nor were the proceedings following in any constitutional or legal sense criminal prosecutions. The ar rests, he shows, were made upon different grounds, and the proceedings following the arrests the President would be glad to correct on reasonably satisfactory evidence. FROM THE RAPPAHANNOCK.

A letter from Red river says that a portion of our gunboats are blockading the inoutlis of the Bed and Black rivers, up which there is known to be some twenty rebel steamers, but few of them, however, are properly manned or equipped. Refugees from Alexandria say that since Gen. Banks' withdrawal, several parties of blacks have escaped in canoes and Hats and come to our gunboats. They represent the rebels as treating the negroes with horrible barbarity, shooting them on the road and dragging them with ropes tied to their horses' tails to jail, which is so crowded with blacks as to be unable to hold any more. Both whites and blacks, who showed any favor to the Union forces, have been arrested and several shot. The tlagstatl' with the stars and stripes has been cut down and burned. The low stage ol the waters only prevented our gunboats from going up to retaliate. Bebel attack on Satantia—Anticipated attack on Haines' Bluff.

Phe Post's special says that a Murfreesboro' dispatch of the 11th to the Cincinnati Gazette states that a dispatch, dated Jackson, Miss., 5th, says twelve regiments went from Mem phis to reinforce Grant, drawn from Corinth and other places. The rebels, in exchanging papers, penciled the words "Humored big light at Vicksbtirg on the 8th." An intelligent conscript deserted from the 3d Alabama cavalry and came into our lines to-day. Ile says, according to his judgment, there are 8000 troops about Shelby ville and at Hragg's headquarters, and about 20,01)0 at Tullahoma. Large reinforcements, rather more than two divisions, have undoubtedly gone to Mississippi. There was great distress in the ranks, ami thousands would desert but for Hragg's precautions. The army was on two-thirds rations, clothing was scarce, and the necessary supplies were impossible to get. The rebels think their doom sealed if Vicks burg falls.
