ENEMY AT SHIP ISLAND—We take the following from the Picayune of yesterday, but
in connection would mention that the officers of the mail line boats have seen
nothing of the sort reported below:

reports having seen two United States war steamers outside ship Island.
United States flag was flying on the fort there. We are indebted to the courtesy of Com.
