Firing at Fort Morgan.

--There were many rumors afloat yesterday morning in relation to the reported firing on some workmen near Fort Morgan. From all the information we could gather, the facts are that on Friday the United States steamer Mississippi ran in within about two miles of the beach, about five miles east of Fort Morgan, where there was a number of laborers erecting sand batteries, and threw some seventeen shot and shall at them, which caused the workmen to disperse. No damage was done. We learn that Brigadier General Withers was immediately dispatched for, and he left the city for the Fort late on Friday night.--Mobile paper.
