[Another dispatch, dated Fortress Monroe, April 28, mentions a report that the Louisiana, the iron-clad vessel built at New Orleans, was, "while on its way, sunk by the Federal steamer Pensacola."

Pittsburg Landing, April 29. --There was some heavy firing across Lick Creek this morning caused by artillery practice with the rebels by our advance guard, who, after a slight skirmishing, in which we captured several prisoners, occupied Pea Ridge, and at 9 o'clock occupied Monterey, 12 or 14 miles from Corinth. A very intelligent sailor, formerly of Boston, who deserted from the rebels this side of Corinth, reports that the capture of New Orleans was generally known in the rebel camps in them morning of the 27th inst.

The Federal Court, under Judge Trigg, will convene shortly, and the arbitrary arrests complained of by the traitors will be tender mereles compared with the indictments before that Court." In a lengthy article he says "slavery cannot longer exist in the temperate zone." Charles McChee, Columbus Powell, and Mr. Salter, of Kentucky, have been sent to that State upon a requisition of Gov. Bramlette. Heavy firing reported in the direction of Bull's Gap on Monday. [second Dispatch.] Abingdon, Nov. 19. --The firing reported at Bull's Gap was not at that point, but at Knoxville.
