The fight at Sewell's Point.six of the enemy killed.condition of the Monticello.small-pox at Fortress Monroc.[special Correspondence of the Dispatch.] Norfolk, May 21, 1861. As I promised in my letter of yesterday to give you information to-day, in case I should be able to ascertain the fact whether any of the enemy were killed or wounded by our fire from the battery at Sewell's Point, on Sunday last. I report, upon the authority of a gentleman who went down to Fort Monroe yesterday (Monday) in the steamer which carried (under a flag of truce) the families of those who desired to go North, that on board of the Monticello there were six men killed during the action on Sunday, by shot thrown from out battery.

Transactions in provisions are constantly going on, and the probabilities of starving us out becomes hourly less apparent. The soldiers, as far as I can learn, are entirely satisfied, and give assurance that "camp life" has not dampened the ardor of their devotion to Southern interests. Indeed, all are anxious for a fight, and, my word for it, they will teach our libertyshriekers a lesson that will be remembered for ages. Companies are offering their services at headquarters almost every day, and will no doubt be received and mustered into service as soon as the judgment of the officers may decide. Col.
