From the South. From the Southern exchanges we copy the following interesting items of news: Daring attack of two Confederate steamer on the Forts and fleet at Hatteras. From a reliable source the Newburn N. C. Progress, of the 7th inst., obtains the following information in regard to the movements of our embryo naval force in and about the Carolina waters: On the morning of the 5th inst., the steamer Raleigh, commanded by Lieut. Commanding J. W. Alexander, and the prize steamer Fanny, Jas. L. Taylor Commanding. (lately turned over to the Secede Government) ran in almost under the guns of the Forts and fleet at Hatteras and invited the vandals to a test of metal by sending them invitations numerous, and we hope effective, in the shape of riled thirty-two-pounder and other equally destructive missiles Nothing, however, was accomplished, except by one or two shell, which bursting in rather close proximity to the fleet caused every percentible commotion among them.
