Fortress Monroe, Aug. 31.

—The gunboat Iroquois has arrived from the blockade off Savannah. She reported hearing heavy cannonading off Hatteras.

A Confederate tug has arrived off here. She is armed with rifle cannon, and fired several shots at the Savannah. "Nobody hurt."—The tug retired behind Old Point and fired two shells—one exploded near the Seminole, and the other close to the Rip Raps. She that retired behind Sewell's Point.

[The Confederate tug engaged in the above affair is the "Harmony," as already announced in our Norfolk correspondence.
