From Fort Monroe


The steamer Rhode Island arrived from Key West yesterday evening with mails, and sailed immediately for New York.

Yancey was captured a day or two since on board a schooner which was trying to rung the blockade.  He was dressed in sailor’s costume, but was recognized by one of the Newspaper correspondents.

St. Mary’s, Fla., has been occupied by our forces.

It has been discovered that the telegraph cable was cut about ten miles from the Carolina shore.  A man has been arrested, who is supposed to have been the culprit.  An example will be made of him.
