BOSTON, March 24. – Lieut. Shean, who went out as the representative of the Navy department on board the steamer Saxon in search of the Vermont, has returned. He reports that the Vermont will undoubtedly make for Port Royal, and that not the slightest fears need be entertained for her ultimate safety, as she is as light as any vessel, and she has got provisions sufficient for more than a year, with water filters undrawed. He further reports that all on board are in good spirits.
