The fight between the Alabama and the Hatteras Mobile, Jan. 23 --The evening papers contain a correspondence of the New Orleans Delta, dated Galveston, January 13th, which says the rebels occupy the city with a force of 5,000 to 7,000 men.--The city is well fortified with batteries all round. The gunboat Hatteras went in chase of a strange sail on Sunday evening and heavy firing was soon after heard. The sloop-of-war Brooklyn and the gunboat Sciota started in pursuit, and picked up a boat containing an officer and five men, belonging to the Hatteras, who reported that the Hatteras ranged alongside of the strange steamer, when the stranger opened a furious fire on the Hatteras, and in about twenty minutes the Hatteras stopped, evidently crippled. The Brooklyn and Sciota cruised all night and found the Hatteras in nine fathoms water.
From Fredericksburg. Fredericksburg, Jan. 23 --The Yankees are building immense warehouses at Aquia Creek, repairing and refilling the railroad to the point opposite this place, and building buts and other more permanent conveniences for their army. These preparations, together with the erection of heavy batteries in front, indicate that their present line has been established as the permanent base of operations for the winter. A new earthwork, with several guns in position, just below Falmouth, was visible yesterday. Considerable bodies of troops have been moving up the opposite bank for two or three days past. A large dwelling-house, owned by Sidney Owens, was burnt yesterday morning. The fire caused a loaded shell, that had been thrown in during the late battle, to explode. The long roll was beat on both sides of the river, and the Yankees, as well as ourselves, fell immediately into line of battle, and for a time considerable excitement prevailed.
