From Fortress Monroe

FORT MONROE, Feb. 26. – The reported loss of the Express is unfounded.

The steamer Spaulding has arrived from Hatteras.  A large fire was seen on the main land from Hatteras, on Monday, which continued all day.  The fire was still burning in the evening when the Spaulding left.
