Pearson, arrived yesterday morning from Old Point Comfort, and reports everything quiet at that point. Col. Butler, a brother of Gen. Butler, was among her passengers, and he went on to Washington. She also brought up five or six soldiers returning to the North. With regard to the trial of the large rifled cannon, mounted on the Rip Raps, passengers Gen. Butler, was among her passengers, and he went on to Washington. She also brought up five or six soldiers returning to the North. With regard to the trial of the large rifled cannon, mounted on the Rip Raps, passengers by the Georgeanna report that it will be useless in its operations against Sewell's Point.--A dense forest intervenes, besides which there is a sand beach nearly a hundred feet high, which entirely destroys the view of the one from the other. No house can be seen, nor a white flag from one should it have been put out on the occasion of the trial of the gun. One of the Ericsson steamers left Fortress Monroe at 4 o'clock on Wednesday afternoon, with ninety tons of shells for Fort McHenry.
can so terribly frighten their fierce Zouaves, and force them, together with their logger-headed Hessians, to skip from the field of Bethel, broken, routed and panic-stricken within their lines.-- Honest Old Abe, even — if he reads none but Picayune Butler's reports of that fight — can not longer doubt that something is going wrong and that somebody is being hurt.

We were now as secure as at the beginning of the fight, and as yet had no man killed. The enemy finding himself foiled on our right flank, next made his final demonstration on our left. A strong column, supposed to consist of volunteers from different regiments, and under command of Captain Winthrop, aid-de-camp to General Butler, crossed over the creek and appeared at the angle on our left.

Butler suspected them as spies and put them in prison. The Southerners are erecting masked batteries opposite the Rip Raps. No correct returns of the killed at Great Bethel have been or will be given. All surgeons were ordered across the Potomac from Washington last night. The War Department has discovered that female Secessionists have been carrying on a regular correspondence with Beauregard, via Mt. Vernon.
