The fight at South Mills, N. C. We are indebted to a gentleman in Portsmouth for the subjoined account of the fight at South Mills, N. C. on Saturday last. We learn from a passenger that Capt. McComas of Henningsen's artillery, who was killed in the fight, fought with the most determined bravery, cheering his men on and exposing himself with apparent indifference to danger: Portsmouth, April 21. I have just seen an intelligent member of Col. Wright's 3d Georgia regiment, who was wounded in the battle at South Mills, and I will give you a hurried sketch of his statement concerning the fight. Three militiamen deserted to the Yankees and gave information of our numbers, situation, &c. They landed Friday night a large force and commenced the march. Col. Wright failed to get information of the advance until Saturday morning. He then hurried forward with three companies of infantry, an artillery company, and one cavalry company. Reaching a very large old field, skirte
Nashville reported to be re-taken. Augusta, April 21. --The Mobile Tribune, of Saturday, says that passengers from Corinth report that a rumor was current there that Nashville had been retaken by Gens. Kirby Smith and Humphrey Marshall. The Tribune credits the report, and says, also, that 4,000 prisoners were taken. It is believed at Corinth that the enemy was evacuating his position there, and going to the gunboats.
From Corinth. Augusta, April 21. --The Memphis Appeal, of the 11th inst., says that in the engagement on the Tuesday after the battle of Shiloh, between a detachment of Col. Forrest's cavalry and the enemy's advance, the Federal loss was 250 killed and wounded. The Confederate loss was 10 killed and wounded. Colonel Forrest was painfully but not dangerously wounded. The Columbus (Ga.) Times has a dispatch dated Mobile, 17th inst., which says that all was quiet at Corinth. The enemy are going down the Tennessee river now. [The most of this news has been published before, showing that the mail can sometimes be ahead of the telegraph.]
Island no.10. Augusta, April 21. --The Memphis Appeal says that the capturing of Island No.10 was effected on Tuesday, the 8th inst. Our men threw their guns in the river, spiked the cannons, and scuttled the floating battery and transports. About 1,000 escaped; it is estimated that 2,000 were taken prisoners. [The floating battery, according to the Yankee reports, elsewhere published, was captured; and if this be so, the work of scuttling must have been very imperfectly performed. As to our estimated loss of 2,000 men, it is far above the number claimed by the Federal Commander Foote in his official dispatch.]
Railroad Accident. Augusta, April 21. --A train of cars of the South Carolina Railroad, Columbia Branch, was thrown off the track on Saturday night. Two persons were killed and one fatally injured.
From Fort Pulaski. Augusta, April 21. --The Charleston Courier, of this morning, says that some prisoners, captured by our troops, report that in the bombardment of Fort Pulaski, seventeen Federals were killed, and one of the garrison.--The walls of the Fort were not breached.
