Shelling a Federal steamer. New Orleans, July 10. --(Received in Richmond at midnight on the 11th.)--At six o'clock on Tuesday morning the Sand Batteries on Ship Island opened fire on a Federal war steamer, at about two miles distant. The war steamer shot some thirty odd rounds of shell and round shot, which sunk in the sand, and was used by the Confederates in their return fire. It is believed that the steamer was struck three times in the hull. The shells from the Sand Battery exploded over the war vessel, which must have materially injured her. She immediately hand off and directed her course for Chandler Island, which is 12 miles from our batteries. On the Confederate side one man received a slight injury on one of his legs. No other damage was done.
