The Federals Below New Orleans.

Private dispatches received here, state that a Federal vessels were landing troops at Ship Island on Sunday and Monday.

Another dispatch was received on yesterday, stating that the Federals had landed troops at Balize; and it was believed that Federal troops had also been landed at Mississippi City, opposite to Ship Island.

The people on the islands in that section were much excited, and are not provided with suitable means to resist the Federal invaders.

Belize is about 100 miles from Mobile, and is from New Orleans.
