--The New Orleans Trust Delta, of the 18th inst., says an engagement took place at noon on the 17th inst., between the Confederate gun-boats Jackson and Ivey, and two Federal steamers, near the head of the Passes.
The shot of the Jackson fell short, but the Ivey pursued the Federals down to the Southwest Pass, after which she returned to the head of the Passes.
