A Sac of true* from Norfolk to-day brought down letUm from Union prisoners and a despatch from Genera1 Eager to General Wool. Norfolk papers notlee that Urge military movements are going on at Old Point, l'hey say that Urge reinforcements are landing there, and that at least a hundred large steamers and transports are at the wharves and in tha channel. They aUo notloe that Viee President Hamlin, with a party of Udlaa, visited Fortress Monroe on Monday, and had a great jollification, which, thay say, was tbs cause of the salute. A despatch from Charleston asys that General Evans advanced en Saturday on North Ed la to Island, with 3,000 troops; but, finding the Unionists there at least 6,00? strung, ha returned in a masterly manner. The despatch does not say whether there was any fight or not. Tha gunboat Seminole arrived here thU afternoon from Port Royal, bringing dates to Saturday last. Fort Pulaski had been thoroughly invested for thirty days, and was momentarily expected to surrender. It was said that about five hundred rebels were in Pulaski, and that thay had offered to go out with tha honors of war, but that General Sherman demanded an unconditional surrender, and would, on tha 1st of April, open fire on the fort, if they still rafuaed to yield it. The rebels bad withdrawn all their forces from the coast of Georgia, and had abandoned the works at Thunderbolt, taking away all their guns to Savannah. Tha Seminole landed a force and destroyed Thunderbolt fort, which la within five miles of Savannah, over e good ahell road. Refugees from Savannah say that the friends of tha troops inside of Fort Pulaski had offered thirty thousand dollars to any one who would rescue them. A refugee from Charleston represents that there is a great panic there since tha capture of Newborn. Women and children wars leaving, and the general expectation wu that a terribis blow would b? struck tbsrs. From Florid* tb* intolllfODO# is most gratifying. Tho Union sontimsnt was strongly developing itsalf. A dsspatob from Morfolk, in this morning's Richmond papers, moctlons tho arrival of Vies Prosldont Bamlin and n large party of ladios and gentleman here, and the ring of salutes on the occasion, and in the same paragraph says ?"There has boon no communication by flag of truce with Fortress Monroe for several days." Thore appears to be but little doubt that all our movements her* are faithfully reported to the rebel authorities. The Richmond Dispitch of this morning says:? Tho grand army of tho federals seems to have been transferred from the neighborhood of Washington to the peninsula, which they nave probably conoluded is a shorter and easier road to Richmond than that via Manassas, whish ws havs courteously placed at their disposal. The iHtpaUh also states that the road* here are as bad as those on the Potomac, and refer* to Ooneral Magrudor as a man not likely to be caught napping. There was a rumor la Richmond yesterday that a sever* light had taken plaee he peninsula. It was probably caused by tha fat of ir making a strong reconnoissauoe towards Yorki ?n on Saturday. A despatch from Augusta,Ga., dated the 31st of March, says ? The Chnrleeton papers of to-day contain ? despatch A ata^ Va. flvlaana Uafnh OQ slatinv that two faitaeal gunboats ob the 23th commenced bb attack on Fort Jack on, ?t the mouth of tho Mississippi. Up to thkt time nobody had been hurt. Now Orleans papers of tho 2Tth of March report the Ion of tho robot steamer Vaaderbllt. The eaplata, crew sad eight passengers are safe on the Florida eoaet. One boat, with seventeen men en board, had not been hoard from. The rebel Ordnance Bureau has Issued an order calling for all the balls that can be obtained, to be recast for light artillery. Rebel troops are gathorlng In large numbers at Jacktonport and Perth->nlas, Arkansas. Generals Tan Dora and Jeff. Thompson are preparing tor an ami/ movement at some point on the Ml ijtsaippl riser. WHkthis foree it is ooasldered that the Mississippi Valley is safe from the enemy. The Memphis JMlsssiks of March 29 says that the reroeof the enemy, in attempting to take Island N'o.10, hare been throwing shot and shell for two hundred and forty bo-ire without doing any damage to our works or I'JW, and op to thia time only oaa Confederate aoldier baa boon killed A mail tug cam* down tba Jaaaa rlrar yoatarday aftaraooa, and at long rang* threw aomi aballa Into tba Nowport'a Nawa ramp.

Probably twenty thousand Is mora nearly correct. The great' et despondency existed among the people and troops at Charleston. Tbo fall of Newbern created the greateet consternation. Tha tire-eater* ridiculed the North Carolina troops, charging them with cowardice. The shopkeepers and bakers in Charleston also refused to receive North Carolina money, and, there being two North Carolina regiments there at the time, a revolt was the consequence, end the shoi? were broken open, and the troops helped themselves. These regiments refused to serve any longer, and were allowed to return home. No direct information of the abandonment of rereacoia by the rebels has yet been received; but it was generally believed that our troops had crossed over from Santa Rosa Island and occupied the place. The latest adviees received from Norfolk by the under ground railroad leavas no room to doubt that the Meritmac is thoroughly repaired and In commission, and ready for another expodition against the wooden walls of the Union nary and river transport* in the Roads. The delay of the Merrimac In coming out is believed to be that ah* is wailing for some ammunition for tha heavy guna that have been placed on beard of her, and also for some infernal machines being constructed by Bombastes Maury. The rebel steamers Jamestown and Torktown are also being strengthened and more thoroughly clad with iron, to accompany the Merritnac. There is also a rumor that two other steamers are being clad with iron at Richmond, to join In the expedition of the Merrimae. As to the loss of life on the Merrinuc In her conflict with the Monitor, we have now what is claimed to be positive information that It was protty heavy. One of the recently arrived contrabands states that he was a nurse in the general hospital at Norfolk, aud that up to the time of his departure he had helped te shroud thirty-two of the crew of the Merrimae, and that both Commander Buchanan and Lieutenant Minor are dead. There was still a number of the wounded surviving. Contrabands also state that the last two shots of the Monitor were represented to be the only ones that serioualy injured the Merrimec. These shots were thrown under her ehield at the moment she attempted to run ( the Monitor down. v The military stationed at Norfolk from the Gulf States have been very eevere on the Virginia chivalry since I their defeat at Roanoke Island.

A private letter, dated from on board the'Seminole, says that the Seminole, Wyandot and Norwich, tinder the command of Captain Gillis, senior officer, proceeded up Wilmington river, and upon arriving within a mile of 1 the Skidaway batteries dispersed the rebel cavalry sta- 1 tioned there by ahell, and then deetroyed the batteries. The rebel force fled, leaving everything behind them, | even their dinners. Captain Gillis landed and hoiated the American flag on the ramparts. Another flag was hoisted over the rebel headquarters by Acting Maeter Steel. The reb*l batteries were entirely destroyed, but the dwellings were spared. The dwellings were afterwards burned by the rebels. The batteries mounted ten guns, sad were well built. The squadron has returned to Warsaw Inlet.

[From tho Chicago Tribune, March 31.] Canto, March 29. 1862. A flying visit made te Cairo in the tedious interim of the siege has placed me in possession of some interesting facts relative to the Mississippi river country between Island No. 10 and New Orleans, aa woll as the condition of the Southern popular mind relative to the rebellion and its future prosecution. In lisu, therefore, of the monotonous descriptions of mortar practice and the movements of the fleet at this point, I shall devote this letter largely to the former topic. My Information is derived from a source 1 deem thoroughly authentic, being the result of a conversation with a Chicago man of old acquaintance, who hai spent the last three yeers in Texas, New Orleana and Memphis, and whose opportunities for acquiring information have been peculiar. He fa now upon a visit to Commcdore I'oote, whom he will undoubtedly furnish with valuable information relative te the exact condition of the enemy and bis resources at the more important river towu.

My informant left Now Orleans three weeks ago. At that time the citizens were expecting an attack of th* federalists daily, the result or which would be a sure success to our arms, an th* defences of th* city are unimportant, comprising only two or three forts, mounting soven guns in sll, and of small calibre. Seven gunboats were in process of construction, thrae to be plated with boiler iron, and four with railroad iron. Tba boiltr plated boats were by no means formidable, and could not for a moment withstand an attack of our gunboata, but the railroad plated ones were very long, sharp and fast, and although vulnerable la many places, still were possessed of great strength, and might prove formula bis opponents to our (lest. UNION F8KLIMJ IN NEW OKI.IANH. There are a large number of Lmon men even in New Orleans, more especially in the heavy business circles, among merchants who have sagacity enough to see the direction in which their interests lie. Tli* French Creole population almost unanimously entertatu strong I'alou sentimanta, and wera it lot for th# native pride and strong influence attached to the name of Boaurcgard, the Louisiana regiments would be entirely destitute of Frunoh soldiers. of tbt citizens who are of Northern nativity, and others wbo are attached to the North by buslines interests or conxangulueal relation*, are also sincere tn their profusions of aliegiance, and only await the proper op portunity to prove their devotion by their actions. It is only your native born Southerner, the owner of a sugar plantation, or cotton estate and a gang of slave*, who indulge* in a bombastic and ridiculous stats pride, and fwoars by Jeff. Davis as the only true prophet, who ree'ly 1.1 a secessionist at heart. But even this class of pHfil disheartened by the 1st* federal victorias, ::d now see no path to an ultimate success. They keep up the cry, "Kvpel the tyiuut and his rainu ns from our aacied soil,'' and coolly talk of annihilation as the price of Northern conquest. Pride is th# gieat motor which is used to keep up th# interest of their troops. Woman's influence In the South is perhaps more |>otetit than in tke North, at least for evil, and an unrestricted use its therefor# mad# of It. It is through wom*n that the strongest appeals ere made to tbt soldiers; woman's smll* is to reward thsm Jpon their return, flushed with victory; woman's eyes are to watch over them on the field and 10 th* cauip; woman's charms are to be reserved for those wbo go forth to the bat tie, aad denied to those who suy at borne. Generals, instead of addressing the soldiers direct, address lb* women, urging them ;o use their influence. Pride end vanity, the leading cntrseieristics of the Southron, are tbue strongly ap|>ea!"d to, and women and whlakey collaterally tend tbeir powerful aid to foator Uteee cha ractcriatica. The ignorant mats of the Southern people, removed aeveral degreea even below the alave, know nothing of the progress of the war. Their defeaU are eithor talaifled into victories or ao ttripped of their unfavorable aurroundinga that they appear aa mere skirmishes NO COVFIDBMCX.

Shortly after the conduct of Pillow, Floyd and Buclcner at Ponelson. was brought up in comparison, when Mrs. Buckner broke out into the most furious invective against the two former, and so far carried her tirade that M created a decided sensation. Her attack upon Floyd was simply tho repetition of common talk; upon Pillow it was In sympathy with her husband, betwesn whom thers is a bitter feud. YANCET. Yancey, the great Southern What Is It? has not been captured, as I see reported by telegraph. Ho has arrived safely at New Orleans, and was serenaded upon his arrival. He replied in a brief speech, ia which he asaured his friend* of the Crescent City that he was satisfled they could net expect intervention upon the pert of England,and that the cheerful prospect was left thom of fighting it out single handed. He remained in Now Orleans but a few days and then left for Richmond, to consult

and make a report of his pleasant sociable with the fishmongers of Loudon to Jeff. Davis. UP TDK RIVER. Between New Orleans and Memphis thsrs are few, if any. fortifications. Orders have been issued by the rebel War Department to fortify the mouth of the Red river, Helena, Nspoleen, Vicksburg and Natchez; but it is doubtful if all ths Southern factories can tnrn out sufficient ordnance to meet the order. They ere forced to look entirely within their own borders for cannon and even small arms. The blockade has been strictly maintained, and ths continual reports published In Southern simple roorbacks to keep up the coursjo of t&s poop!#. Thp character of tbo Sou thorn ttnnl! arms Is wretched, composed largely of the old United States musksts of s brooch loading psttorn, and about as efficient as so many cornstalks. The host arms in the possession of the rebel gorsrnment were used at Fort Donelson, and, in faot, the users thrmselvee wore the flower of the rebel army, picked for the occasion. AT MEMPHIS. Albeit Memphis Is the eery hotbed of secession, .the same Union proclivities outcrop as at New Orleans, and even in a more marked degree. Many men openly avow their Union sentiments. Secret organizations exist in various parts of the city, the meetings of which are attended by over 5,000 Union men. It is well known in Memphis that a eplendid Union flag, made by a lady living in the city, is concealed, but will be unfurled at the approach of our gunboat*, an event daily looked for and prayed for by thousands of hoping, anxious hearts. The oity is under a worse than military despotism. The desperation of waning fortunes hae seized upon the secessionists, especially among the military men. Appeals for voluntary recruits are made in vain, and Impressing has bscome general. Men and boys are seized in the streets, In the thopg. and even dragged out of their bade and hurried to the camp of rendezvous, upon ths fair grounds, to swell the ranks of the rebel army. Women All the atreete with their Ismentations, and piteous ly implore the recruiting officers to release their husbands and children. BUBNINO OF T1IE CITT. The project of burning the city, if compelled to evacuate, which originated with military men now residents or this city, has.given rise to a tierce and bitter dispute. The Mayor, John Park, it opiated to it, aud has fulminated a proclamation (which I sent you somo days since) avowing hit determination to bang any man found firing a building. The proclamati ;n was made in his individual not official capacity, and many p' ople look umbrage at came frequent and open, ami soon two parties originated, burners ami antl burners, the former tu tho clear n. i ir.iv, jr. i still further strengthened by the action of the Common Council In conjunction with the leading military men, at a meeting held a fortnight since, when the resoluttm to burn the city, if necessary, was passed by a % ery large majority. It is most sincerely to be hoped that this resolution will be thoroughly carried eut, and that our troops will complete the scone by sowing the as bee with salt. The destruction of the city will involve the destruction of a large amount of property, as immense quantities of sugar, molasses and cotton are stored in the cellars. It is mors than probable, however, that the furious Ore-eaters will take a sobor second thought before they apply tha torch. provisions, rrc. In the matter of provisions and the neeessaries of life. Memphis Is poorly supplied, and has not enough on hand to laat six months. The coming crops, however, will partially make up the deficit, hut the stories set afloat that the Houlh has stock enough on hand to laat for the next two years are absurd. The present stock will barely laat six moatha. The same destitution applies with equal foroe to wearing apparel. Only the common, blue, home-spun, llnsey woolsey stuff can be procured, and that at extortionate prices. Shoes are very scarce, especially gsllere far ladies. Business of court# ia dull. Grain and provisions art held at starvation rates, which srs peculiarly ludicrous when yon consider that Confederate ?crtp is the legsl tender. Soma little Impetus Is given to manufacturing by the war. Three very large gunboata are on the ways, which are boiag plated with railroad iron. but at the slow progress now obtaining, our force* will he in Memphis long before they are finished.

[From the New Orloatis 1 el'a, March 11,] Our community wsa shocked ye?terday to hear that the detonation* that ware heard about half psst twelve o cloclr, were caused hy another powder mill explosion. A Vhlt to the locality of tl?? dimeter showed an awful ecanaofdevaa'aiioo. five human beluga ware lying dead, their limbs and portions of their bodice dissevered end cattered In every direction. Their c'othaa waro blown aud burnt completely off, and eo mutiUted were the c >rpe>'a that, in one Inetanoe in particular, It wan difficult to distinguish It as thet of a human being This was the case of a man who had been thrown the distance of from one hundred and fifty to two hundred yards, rebounded and atraok against a fenca some dielaace off. These men were workmen attaobed to the mill, and named Jamee Freemen. David Orodtbvk, Charles Bee, John Hotdon and David Farvier Another man, whose in wo oould bKooooctoln, nmembor of military 4 L\ ? SHEET. f- r I-tii t | ? company encamped In the neighborhood, and edttr.g at that tint In front of the mill reading a paper, waeaO badly injured that hU life wu considered In danger. Some of the flesh was torn away from his skull, ana the bene thought to be possibly fractured. Mr. M. du lls, one of lbs proprietors, hod Just stepped out of the door and was leading his home across the green when the explosion took place. Ha saw several of tha bodies of the men flying through the sir overhead, but was himself uninjured. The ongiueer also was not hurt, the engine being located some distance from the nearest mill. v On ths premises were three bqildiuj,., Ihe engine house, the grinding mill, some one hbudred end thirty feotfromil, snd the coluing mill, about the same distance further on. It was it) the coining mill that the first explosion took plac^?causo unknown. The mill was running at the time, and had been for some time previously , day and night. There soems to be no idea en tertalued that the occurrence was the result of design. The wind was pretty high and blowing directly from the coining mill to the othur, so that (he flauies and heat were carried immsdiatuly to tho latter, thus causing, undoubtedly. the second explosion. Th i word wreck oannot giro s Just ides or ths ruin when we got to the scene, for there was literally nothing or next to nothing left. The houses wore very slight I buildings of planks and had beon scattered into a million oI fragments, most of them quite minute. Tlie locstion i of the mills could only bo seen by black splotches on the ground, such ss ovory one has seen when a quantity of powder has been touched oif on any exposed surface. The machinery, of oourse, independently of the engine, is completely ruined, but the iocs in powder is comparatively small, as there were but eight thousand pounds altogether in the two mills. FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL - . ^ Wxdnbsdat, April 2?6 P. M. Wall street is unusually dull. Every one is wait" ing to hear news from the army at Corinth, Miaeisaippi, or on the Potomac, and by commo?consent all business of importance is postponed until intelligence of at least one of the expected decisive battles is received. Nothing was done in exchange to-day ; the leading bankers would not sell at last quotations. Money continues abundant; the demand for call loans has fallen oif since the decline of speculation on the Stock Exchange ; paper sells at 6 a 7 per cent, with occasional exceptions, such as bankers' short acceptances, at 6 per cent. Certificates of public indebtedness are ourrent at 96% a %. with a fair demand. Some of the leading foreign bankers have received money from Europe with discretion ary powers as to its investment. So far as we can learn they are all holding off until a battle renders the future more absolutely certain than it is at present. The Stock Exchange was extremely dull and inactive to-day. Central, Erie and Toledo seem to be the only active stocks on the list. They were all lower this morning and throughout the day. At the second board there was the same dull feeling and indisposition to operate. Tennessees declined suddenly to 64. Oold seems to be the only thing which is wanted by buyers. It sold tiiia morning at 102% and closed 102% bid. At the close this evening the market was heavy, the following being the last quotations:? United States 6's, registered, 1881, 92% a 93; do. 6'S, coupon, 1881, 92% a 93; do. 6's, 1874, 86 a 87; Indiana 6's, 76 a 79; Tennessee 6's, 64 a %; Virginia 6's, 57 a 57; North Carolina 6's, 68 a %; Missouri 6's, 60% a %; Pacific Mail, 97% a %; New York Central, 82% a %; Erie, 36% a 37; do. preferred, 61 a %; Hudson River, 35% a 36; Harlem, 1 a do. preferred, 30 a 31%; Reading, 42 a 42%; Michigan Central, 55% a %; Michigan Southern and Northern Indiana, 22% a %; do. guaranteed, 46 a %; Panama, 119 a 121; Illinois Central, 61% a %; Galena and Chicago, 67 a %; Cleveland and Toledo, 46% a %; Chicago and Rock Island, 65% a %; Chicago, Burlington and Quincy, 61 a 61%; Milwaukee and Prairie da Chien, 25% a 26; Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati, 112 a %; New York Central 7's, 1876, 101% a 103%; Erie third mortgage bonds, 92 a 92%; Michigan Central 8's, first mortgage, 99 a 99%; Illinois Central bonds, 7's, 89 a 90; American gold, 102 a %. The Tax bill progresses steadily through the House of Representatives, and will shortly reach the Sedate. There, we understand, it will encounter Mr. Chase's bill, which has been framed with great care, and is understood to be simpler in its machinery than the House bill. It is assumed that the Senate will adopt Mr. Chase's views, in which evedl a committee of conference will be appointed to draft a compromise measure between the two bills. Less importance than would otherwise be the case thus attaches to the present decisions of the House, though they may bo regarded as clearing the ground for the operations of the conference committee. Most of the amendments thus far adopted seem to be very judicious. The rejection of the foolish amendment levying a tax on whiskey already distilled and in store is an evidence of good sense. It would be impossible to discover all the whiskey liable to taxation, and the fair dealer would be likely to hare his business arrested for tn indefinite period of time pending the visit of the taxgathorer. The only sound principle to go upon is to levy taxes exclusively upon articles of merchandise made and produced after a fixed date. No one objects to a measure which will render whiskey twice as dear as it is. But it is idle to pass laws whioh cannot be enforced, and which will only give rise to successful frauds on the part of knaves, and serious embarrassments on the part of honest traders. The Hub-Treasurer has continued all day to pay the coupons of the 7.30 notes. The amount of gold paid out has been qoite large. A considerable amount of money is being deposited at the Sub-Treasury at five per cent interest. One deposit came this morning from Paris, Kentucky.
