Charleston, April 12th, 1861 --10 A. M. The fire commenced this morning at 27 minutes past 4 o'clock, by two guns from Moultrie-- Anderson answering by two barbettes.--All the batteries opened on him then, and he returned the fire until 6, when he stopped until 8 o'clock. They are all now firing upon him, and when the smoke clears away, at intervals, we see part of the walls of Sumter knocked off. The iron battery is doing its work, and will soon silence his guns on the south side. A dispatch has just been received from General Beauregard, saying that no one is yet hurt on Morris' Island. The report is (but not confirmed) that some thirty are killed and wounded on Sullivan's Island. Gen.Beauregard says great enthusiasm prevails among the soldiers. The fleet outside is not yet in sight to us. No dispatches are allowed to go off. Every store is closed, and every private dwelling open to any who may suffer. The deep-mouthed messengers of death ar

The "natives of this city" were greeted this morning on arising. with the sight of a Southern Confederacy flag flying over the main building of the Mt. Laurel Academy. It is about sixty feet from the ground, and is made after the pattern of the Southern Confederacy, with one exception, and that is a blank place among the stars left for delaying Virginia, whose departure from this detestable abolition Union is most anxiously awaited in this section of the country by persons of all classes, from the poorest day laborer to the richest planter, and I am reliably informed, that Halifax would vote for the passage of an secession ordinance by an overwhelming majority if they could but get the chance, which, from present appearances, the Convention seems determined to keep from them. Mt. Laurel can't be behind her contemporary sisters, and, as she led the Stat

As the flag was raised on the pole, (65 feet high,) drawn to the top by Mrs. Wright and Miss Susan Peatross, our Greys (volunteer company) fired a salute. They are a very well drilled company, under command of Capt. R. O. Peatross. The rain this week has done considerable damage on the Mattaponi and North rivers to mills and bridges; also, on the Polecat Creek, to the R., F. & P. Railroad, which, however, is already repaired and in traveling condition. The news from Charleston is exciting, and many of our volunteers, I think, will ere long offer their services to President Davis in any capacity. We have some valiant soldiers amongst them. I hope Virginia will ere long be amongst the Southern Confederacy. Your paper is sought after here with great anxiety, and read with much interest.
