was the first to enter, and was followed rapidly by others. The attack was from three sides, and after the second round from the fleet, the principal gun in our battery was dismounted. The engagement lasted five hours, and all the guns on the fort were dismounted, except two. As the forts were no longer tenable, the two remaining guns were dismounted, and the magazine arranged to be blown up when the enemy entered. The total loss of the Confederates was about 100. Sergeant F. Parkerson and private Heiss, of the Barry Infantry, were slightly wounded. In the Georgia Foresters company two are missing. In the Thomas County Volunteers, J. W. Fontaine is missing. In the Seventeenth Patriots, private Amos Thompson is missing, and also one of Capt. Radcliffe's company. General Drayton's aid was shot from his horse, and General Drayton was slightly wounded. Dispatches to the Charleston papers say that our batteries worked badly, while the Federal's firing was excellent.
