[97] Norfolk at 25 minutes past 6 yesterday, and took a gin cocktail with several of the first families.

Havre de grace, April 26.--I learn from a gentleman just from Mobile, that Gen. Beauregard is on his way North, with 150,000 troops. Gen. Beauregard is six feet high, but will not join Blower's “Household Guards.” Declines advertising the Household Journal.

Annapolis, April 26.--Gen. Beauregard was discovered in the White House rear-yard last night at 26 minutes past 6, armed with three large howitzers and a portable sledstake. He went away after reconnoitring pretty numerously.

Philadelphia, April 26.--I learn on excellent authority that Gen. Beauregard was in Charleston at 22 minutes past 6 yesterday, and had no intention of leaving. He was repairing Fort Sumter.

The people of Bangor, Maine, and of Cape Cod, Mass., report that Gen. Beauregard has lately been seen prowling around those places.

I learn that Gen. Beauregard is within five miles of Washington.

The report in some of your contemporaries, that Gen. Beauregard is within five miles of Washington, is utterly without foundation. Sensation despatches in times like these cannot be too strongly deprecated. The public will invariably find my despatches reliable, and can always find out all about Gen. Beauregard by buying vanity Fair. Price 6 cents.--Vanity Fair, May 4.
