ndent of the Northern Associated Press] From Fortress Monroe. Fortress Monroe, August 15. --The steamers Adelaide and George Peabody have arrived at Old Point, and will leave shortly on an important expedition. The rumored presence of a privateer in the Chesapeake was one of our vessels, belonging to Lieut. Crosby the latter has gone North for a balloon of much larger size. The report that the Confederates beyond Fox Hill connected a wire with the telegraph line from Old Point to Newport News, and thus obtained our dispatches, is entirely without foundation. The line is now being put in working order, communication having been interrupted since our evacuation of Hampton. Considerable dissatisfaction has lately manifested itself among the volunteers at Old Point and Newport News, in consequence of not getting their pay. The delay of the Government agents in this particular is inexcusable. Many of the men here have not received a cent since they left home.
