April 24.

The steamer John J. Roe was burned by the rebels at a point below Natchez, on the Mississippi.--A scouting-party of the First Michigan cavalry, sent out from Alexandria, Va., under command of Lieutenant Jackson, came across a band of rebel guerrillas, about nine miles up the Occoquan road, when a brisk skirmish ensued. Four of the rebels were [72] wounded and taken prisoners. Lieutenant Jackson had two of his men slightly wounded, and succeeded in capturing one horse.--Governor Brough issued an order, calling the National Guard of Ohio into active service for one hundred days.
