rted on the afternoon of the 6th inst. from Plymouth — her destination it is not now necessary to state. She found nine gunboats in the Sound at the mouth of the river (Roanoke) waiting her approach. A most furious fight occurred between the "Albemarle" and the gunboats, which lasted from 4 P. M. till dark. Three thousand six hundred (3,600) shot were fired at the iron clad from fifty (50) guns. She was struck in about twenty (20) places. The first shot of the enemy broke off the muzzle of one of her guns, which rendered the useless except at short range.--She fought mainly with one gun, and sank one of the largest of her opponents, which attempted to run her down, and disabled at least two more. No such fight in water has occurred since hostilities began between the North and the South. Commander Cooke's report will be highly interesting. --The "Albemarle" returned to Plymouth to repair damages, from which she could hardly be expected to escape in such a terrible encounter.
e sunk three of their largest steamers, besides damaging three or four more. She was hurt but very little. Her smoke stack was riddled so that her commander, Captain Cooke, could not get draft enough to raise steam, and this compelled him to return. In doing so he had to burn all his bacon, lard, and oil, to raise steam.--The Alr duties. One of the Albemarle's guns had some three feet knocked off the muzzle at the first fire, but she fired forty-six rounds in her broken condition Captain Cooke said the Confederacy might congratulate itself on the safe return of the Albemarle to Plymouth. The Yankees tried to throw a keg of powder down her smoke stacfle guns on her, five 11-inch Dahlgren guns, and two other large guns in her bow and stern. We also sunk the Miami, another large vessel carrying ten guns and Captain Cooke thinks the third vessel was the Eutaw. These are the facts of the fight of the Albemarle.

It says: About 2 o'clock in the morning a daring attempt was made by a party of eleven officers of the Yankee navy to blow up, with torpedoes, the iron-clad ram Albemarle, at Plymouth, and the attempt was successful. The Albemarle was moored near the wharf, a gangway connecting her with the shore.--Some distance down the river, in the stream, lay the hall of the Southfield, sunk there by Captain Cooke when Plymouth was captured from the Yankees.--The Southfield was used as a picket station by our infantry forces, to which they passed to and from the shore by a boat, and this bot was usually kept at the Southfield. Thursday night was very dark and stormy. In the darkness and storm, at the hour stated, the Yankee expedition surprised, it is said, the Southfield picket station, and captured all the pickets, twenty-five in number, without firing a gun, and sent them down the river
Fire. --Between 11 and 12 o'clock yesterday morning an accidental fire occurred in the negro apartment of Mrs. Cooke's boarding-house, on the corner of Eighth and Clay streets. By the timely discovery, on the part of the servants, the flames were extinguished before much damage was done, and the firemen had a run to the scene of the occurrence without any necessity of unreeling their hose.
