April 5.

The ship Louisa Hatch was captured and burned by the rebel privateer Alabama, in latitude 3° 30′, longitude 26° 25′.--Eight thousand National troops left Newbern, N. C., by the way of the Neuse River, to reinforce General Foster, who was at Washington, surrounded by the rebels, but meeting a superior force of the enemy, they returned to Newbern.--An expedition, consisting of infantry and cavalry, under the command of General Steele, met a small body of rebels at a bridge over the Black Bayou, Miss., with whom they had a skirmish. The rebels were driven across the bayou, when they burned the bridge and retreated. The Union troops rebuilt the bridge, and proceeded on the march toward Yazoo City.

To-day the Union gunboats before Washington, N. C., shelled the rebel batteries at Hill's Point for two hours, but without being able to reduce them.--Boston Traveller.
