Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.letter from Pig Point. Camp Jackson, near Pig Point, June 7, 1861. To-day a large number of Federal troops are supposed to have landed at Newport News Point. Early this morning steamers could be seen moving from Fortress Monroe. Three of these are said to have arrived from the North with heavy reinforcements, numbering 3,000. If this be true, as I have no doubt it is, not less than 5,000 troops are encamped at Newport News at the time I write.ent, learns from our Lieutenant Colonel, who had a conversation with the Captain of the steamer, who went aboard the Harriet on his visit to the Fortress, that three shots certainly took effect, one of them bursting the magazine all to pieces. The commander of the Harriet Lane (with whom he is well acquainted) informed him that six men were wounded during the engagement at Pig Point, but would not say that any were killed. I learn from our Lieutenant Colonel that the above is reliable. X.
