s expected at Matthias, and that Cook's battery was yesterday seat to that point; and the conductor of the train last night informed us that Colonel Brockenbrough's regiment had sent their baggage to this place, preparatory to marching to the same point. We should not be surprised if the Federals should essay fight at once, for with them it is now or never. Engagement at Port Royal — a Yankee Reconnaissance, and what came of it — severe cannonade. Gardner's Corner, via Pocotaligo, S. C., December 19.--About half past 1 o'clock yesterday afternoon one of the enemy's gunboats passed by Port Royal Ferry. Our batteries opened fire upon her, striking her three times. Upon meeting with this rather hot reception, she steamed rapidly past, and ran aground about three miles the other side of the ferry. As soon as our troops became aware of the fix into which the Yankees had got themselves, Lieutenant McElhenny, of Captain Moore's field battery, (from Wilmington, N. C.,) was dispa

Evans had the brigade called out for review, and made his farewell speech to the soldiers, presenting each regiment with a battle flag, which they promised never to dishonor. The occasion was enlivened by the splendid music of a brass band, as well as by the encouraging smiles of woman; and though the soldiers experienced a pang of regret on parting with their commander, they could not repress their enthusiasm when the beautiful flag were bestowed upon them.--General Evans, who goes to South Carolina, is succeeded by Gen. D. H. Hill, of Bethel fame; and the country will confidently expect from him a continuation of the work which his predecessor so worthily initiated. We learn from a correspondent that the health of the brigade is very good, and that the soldiers will endure the rigors of winter much better than was anticipated.
