Beauregard Explained

BALTIMORE, April 14.

In reference to Beauregard’s dispatches alluded to in the Old Point letter, enquiries have been made of the War Dep’t, and we are authorized to say that the reports from Pittsburg Landing already given to the public contradict the reports in the Norfolk papers. All reports received at the war Department confirm the statements that the enemy were routed and pursued as far as the previous orders of Gen. Grant would permit, and the enemy are now shut up in Corinth.
