It says: The "Albemarle" started 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 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.
