In the shell-room were several hundred shells, filled and fused for the various sizes of guns. The magazine is filled with powder, put in cylinders ready for use; the powder appears to be of most excellent quality. There are two furnaces for heating shot, both filled with shot, some of them partly melted. The ammunition-chests are nearly full of powder. In a pool of water in the rear large quantities of ammunition are lying, where it was thrown by the enemy before retreating. At Braddock's Point, at the far end of Hilton Head Island, the enemy abandoned one X-inch columbiad and two 5 1/2-inch rifled guns, and near the wharf, in retreat, left two fine 12-pounder bronze howitzers. In the attempted defence of these works General Drayton reported casualties as follows: Killed in Fort Walker, 10; wounded, 20; killed in Colonel De Saussure's regiment, 1; wounded severely, 15; missing, 4; wounded in Fort Beauregard, 13. The total of casualties on board of all of the vessels is

Killing a tiger. --A correspondent of the Charleston Mercury gives the following narrative of a remarkable occurrence in Prince Williams' Parish, S. C.: On Tuesday morning, the 13th inst., by the dawn of day, Henry, a servant of Mr. Jesse M. Mixson, (who is now in the service at Braddock's Point,) and Toney, a lad of 10 or 12 years of age, started out "coon-hunting," and in going to the field they passed a small pond about 150 yards from the negro quarters. Their dog, Buck, passed through the pond, when they saw some huge animal run out, and their faithful dog in full cry pursuing.--They supposed it a deer, but in a few minutes they heard Buck "baying" at the top of his voice very faithfully. They approached the tree, and saw on a pine distinctly a hugs animal, are crawling and wagging its long tail.--Henry sent home immediately for the gun, and when it came made a capital shot, dig at the head, and bringing a tiger to the ground. I saw the animal, and round it to be 6 f
observing the effects of the firing, say that seven shots from our fleet took effect in the Federal vessels. The latter coming in still closer, our fleet retired. Yesterday, as stated in the first part of this article, all was quiet. After taking in a supply of coal last night, the Resolute returned immediately to the squadron. The Courier says: It is believed the enemy intend a landing on Hilton Read Island, between Fort Walker on the North end and the battery at Braddock's Point. In smooth weather they can land on the sea beach from their boats with facility, and they had several large transports anchored about four miles off, stretching along the Island shore. Should this be their plan they probably intend to attack the fortified positions both by land and sea.--We are informed that the larger vessels of the fleet cannot approach the sea shore of the Island nearer than four miles, and that they would have to come inside the bar and up the channel to bombard
rrison at Bay Point, commanded by Captain Stephen Elliott, made good their escape, and at last accounts were engaged in throwing up a batttery at Port Royal Ferry, near Beaufort. Capt. Wm. Elliott's company, which garrisoned the work on Braddock's Point, south end of the island, retreated in small boats, and many of them, with their baggage, were picked up by the steamer Leesburg, from Savannah, and landed on the opposite shore. They burnt their stores, and left their tents behind them. . Melcheur, of the German artillery, Charleston; and Captain Read's Company were the last to leave the fort, which they did at common time, picking up the wounded as they went along. Capt. Read informs us that the Hessians have occupied Braddock's Point, at the south end of Hilton Head, in great force, and are throwing up extensive works. As Capt. Elliott left all his tents standing on the Point, Capt. R., unless he was very near, may be mistaken in this impression. The Charleston
Latest from the Southern coast. movements of the Yankees — Another fight supposed to have taken place at Port Royal, &c. Augusta, Nov. 20. --The Savannah Republican, of yesterday morning, says that the Federals have made no movement since the capture of Fort Walker. The most reliable information is, that the enemy has landed about 3,000 men at Fort Walker, and about 1,000 at Braddock's Point. A few of the Federals occasionally make a visit to Beaufort in the day time, but return to their vessels or the forts at night. The Yankees have forced a number of negroes into service, and put them to picking and ginning cotton. The Republican says there was heavy and continued firing heard on yesterday, in the direction of Port Royal. It is supposed that the enemy attempted a landing under cover of their guns, which was evidently resented by our troops. Gen. Sherman has issued a proclamation inviting the South Carolinians to return to their homes and occup
on which it is situated, and are now confined to Hilton Head, Pinckney Island, immediately west, and separated from the former by Skull Creek, and the point known as Bay Point, on Jenkins' Island, across the Sound and opposite Fort Walker, on Hilton Head.--It is said that they are throwing up extensive and formidable works on Hilton Head, thus giving evidence of an intention to make a permanent lodgment on the island. Skull Creek is now completely under their control, and the works at Braddock's Point, on the south end of the island, command the entrance to Daufuski Sound. A party of two Yankees ventured on the mainland a day or two since, when, being discovered by our men, one of them was captured; the other got to his boat in time and made good his escape. The prisoner states that the fleet landed 13,000 of the 20,000 with whom they set sail. He could give no account of the remaining 7,000. He was brought to Charleston on Wednesday. East Tennessee.

hich an attack might be expected would permit. I then visited Commodore Tatnail, and after an interchange of views, took leave, crossed over to Hilton Head Island, landed there at daylight on the 5th, and immediately dispatched a courier to Braddock's Point, couth end of the Island, ordering Captain Stuart's company, 9th regiment, to march on Fort Walker, and embark thence to strengthen Captain Elliott's guners in Fort Beauregard. This company did not leave on the 6th as proposed, as Captain Sing how small a force Capt. Elliott had to command his batteries, I ordered, as soon as I reached Hilton Head on the 5th instant, Capt Stutt's company, (Hamilton Guards,) 9th regiment South Carolina volunteers, to march upon Fort Walker from Braddock's Point, and take thence the steamer Edisto for Bay Point; but the failure of Capt. Sassard, of the Edisto, to fulfill his appointment at the hour designated, prevented me from supporting Capt. Elliottas I desired. But on Thursday morning, 7th inst
