Late Southern News. Arrival of the Burnside expedition in Pamlico sound. From the Norfolk Day Book, of yesterday, we copy the following: Information reached this city last evening to the effect that a Federal fleet had made its appearance in Pamlico Sound. The fleet consists of 20 gun-boats, drawing from five to six feet of water, and carrying, some of them, five guns. They were first discovered by Capt. Huntor, who, while reconnoitering, was shot at by them. On this return to the island he reported the fact, and our forces proceeded at once to place themselves in a state of readiness for an attack. This is supposed to be a portion of the Burnside expedition, and it is thought, by some, that its object is to prepare for an attack upon Norfolk from the rear. However this may be, one thing is certain, and that is, that should this be their programme, they will find it a hard road to travel before they get to the end of it. Gen. Leslin Comes. Ther
