Things at Norfolk.

Desertion of the Crew of the Cumberland — Destruction of Arms — Burning of the Navy Yard, &c.

Norfolk, April 20--I have just come from Portsmouth. It is believed the crew of the United States frigate Cumberland have mutinied. One of them was in my room at the Atlantic Hotel last night. He had left the ship.

[second Dispatch.]

Norfolk,Va., April 20 --The Navy-Yard at Gosport was burnt last night by the Republican troops therein, and they retired then to Fort Monroe.

A dispatch from Norfolk says the Navy-Yard was fired by the Federal troops before they left, but not much injured. A large quantity of cannon, &c., were saved.
