Big guns.

--One hundred cannon, of heavy calibre, have arrived in New Orleans from Norfolk, Va., and will soon be placed in position for the defence of the city. They came in charge of Capt. Edward Higgins, formerly of the U. S. Navy, and now aid-de-camp to Gen. Twiggs--one of the most active, energetic, and intelligent officers that we have in these parts.
