Augusta June 7.
--It is reported at Mobile that a citizen of Nashville, named George Brown, had killed Andy Johnson, and that Brown had also been killed.

It is reported at Vicksburg float Gen. Butter had been killed in New Orleans, but the report lacks confirmation.

The Jackson Mississippian, of the 3d instant, says that a small detachment of Gen. Lovell's forces attacked the Federals at Baton Rouge, on Sunday night, killing twenty-one of the enemy.
