Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch,from Pig Point. Camp Jackson, near Pig Point, June 10th, 61. Our men were aroused early this morning by the distant noise of cannon and musketry. It continued for some time, and as near as we could learn, it was in the direction of Yorktown. We have been expecting a fight every day at this point, but the prospects are now better than before.
