n in flames, and owing to high winds the conflagration spread until nineteenths of the city was destroyed. Several times after the British fleet came into Hampton Roads, and two or three times Portsmouth, immediately across the river, was occupied. That town also suffered severely during the war and was frequently used as play warehouses, and some ship-yards were burned. Five miles below the city of Norfolk is Crany Island, lying at the entrance of the harbor, three miles from Hampton Roads.--During the last war with England this was the scene of a battle. On the 22d of June, 1813, a large fleet made an attack upon it, with a force of about 4,000lence in Virginia." Norfolk is now a city of much importance, it is situated upon the Elizabeth river, as it widens out to the sea, eight miles from Hampton Roads, and thirty-five from the ocean. It has somewhere in the vicinity of fifteen thousand inhabitants, exclusive of the soldiers stationed near. The harbor is la

The Admiral and two of the officers of the French warship Pomons, before reported in Hampton Roads, came up to the city on Saturday. Their names are, Le Marquis DeMentaingnac, Captain and commanding Naval division. Captain De St. Phalla. Lieut. De Regaradec.

The steamer that came up towards Craney Island on Saturday, from fort Monroe under flag of truce, brought up a num

Pearson, came up this morning from Old Point, and reports an abatement of the gale, which, without doubt, prevailed with unwonted severity outside of the Capes. There was no arrivals or departures at Old Point during yesterday, nor had anything been heard from the Burnside expedition. There are still in Hampton Roads about two thousand men, which were intended for the Burnside expedition, but were unable to get out in consequence of running aground in the Chesapeake during a dense fog. Amongst these is a full regiment of New York Zouaves, who are now aboard the ship John Tucker. Several passengers came up in the Adelaide. They state that the people residing near the Sounds are under the impression that the Burnside Expedition is to operate against Norfolk and Gosport, by cutting off the ra
