rigate United States has been towed up to the Navy-Yard and a battery is to be placed upon her. When the frigate Cumberland passed from the yard in tow of the Pawnee, on Sunday morning, Dr. Dillard, of Virginia, of the Navy of the former United States, who had been sick at the Hospital, got a boat, went along side of the frigate and embarked his fortunes with our enemies. It is said the Doctor had been talking secession with acquaintances in the city, and was regarded by them as with his er of the late U. S. N., who had resigned his commission the day previously, and remarked to Capt. Choate that, he consenting, he would give the Lieutenant the honor of hoisting the first Sic Semper Tyrannis flag over the property of the late United States. The Hospital was taken possession of by Lieut. Col. Godwin, with one company of the Regiment, accompanied by Adjutant Wrena. Dr. Barrington was in charge at the time, who surrendered on demand on Sunday morning at about sunrise. Ou

cial correspondence of the Dispatch.] Portsmouth, April 26, 1861. Nothing new here. The battery at the Hospital is vigorously prosecuting. There are about 800 troops there, composed of our own volunteers and the four companies from Georgia. There is a parade every evening, at 6 o'clock, when the grounds are thronged with ladies, cheering by their presence and smiles the men who are to defend them. I heard a gentleman say he did not think the officers who supervised the burnihey shall have been mustered in, the Regiment will then be composed of ten companies, numbering in the aggregate about 670 men. We have also in barracks four large, efficient, and I may add thoroughly well drilled companies of infantry from Georgia, who arrived here a few nights back, officered by the first men of the State, and the soldiers are the very flower of the South.

Two of the Georgia companies went over to Fort Norfolk from the Hospital, and companies went to Craney Island from Norfolk. The battery at the Hospital is rapidly advancing to completion, and will command the approach to the harbor.

The breastwork is of earth, covered by cotton bales, and they covered with railroad T iron. Give us a show, and we can sink the entire Yankee fleet.
