ht. There were loud and quick reports of musketry as well as of cannon. The beating of the drum was also distinctly heard. Some half a dozen steamers are actively employed in running between Fort Monroe and Newport News, and it is not improbable that a fight took place not far from the latter place yesterday. It is stated that Lieut. Adam Baker, who was in the Confederate service, left his command a short time since, and escaped to Fort Pickens. Baker, who is a native of South Carolina, is quite well known in our city, where he lived when hostilities commenced, having had charge of a corps of marines at the Navy-Yard. He resigned in April and subsequently went South. His conduct, if the statement is true, is mysterious, and if the case is one of real desertion, his conduct is in a high degree traitorous and perfidious. The message of Lincoln is regarded here, by intelligent men, as a labored attempt to deceive everybody; as a deliberate misstatement of the condi
