Affairs on the black water.

There is nothing from the Blackwater which can be relied on, except the fact that heavy firing was heard by citizens of Southampton county about daybreak Tuesday--some say they heard musketry as well as cannon. No intelligence had been received at the War Department last night of any movement or engagement near Suffolk.
