Latest from Cairo

CAIRO, April 23. – It is reported that the Mound City hospital is to be suspended until after the waters subside. Sewers to be opened &c., the sick and wounded to be transferred to other hospitals.

A Steamboat expedition across the bottom above the city has succeeded in effecting a junction with the railroad at the Iron bridge some six miles above Cairo. Very little change in the state of water.

The steamer Tigress just arrived from Pittsburg Landing. Officers of the 12th Iowa on board report the water lower than a month ago. The have but twelve effective men left, of their regiment.

Arrivals from Com. Foote bring nothing interesting. Nothing new from the army.
