Engagement between a blockading Vessel and Confederate batteries.the Federal Vessel disabled New Orleans, August 12. --On Saturday, August 3d, the blockading schooner Dart exchanged five or six shots with the batteries on Galveston Island, doing no damage on either side. The following Monday afternoon the South Carolina left her usual station and moved almost within rifle shot of the batteries, which opened fire, the steamer answering. The Carolina threw several shells over the city, which exploded in the air, doing no material injury. One shell exploded among a number of lookers on, near the battery, killing one and wounding two or three. Some twelve or fourteen shots were exchanged, when the steamer withdrew. It is believed that the Carolina was struck in the side and the pivot gun capsized. There is great indignation here at this outrageous attempt to bombard the city without notice.
