How far cannon may be heard.

--The last Eufaula (Alabama) Spirit of the South claims that the cannon at Pensacola were distinctly heard in that place by several persons. In the county, negroes heard the reports and called the attention of their masters to the sound. The distance from Eufaula to Pensacola, as the crow files, must be at least 130 miles.

Passengers from the South report that the guns at Port Royal were heard at Jacksonville and Palatka, in Florida the latter place being, in an air line, about 200 miles distant.
