etermined to reconnoiter the field.--They galioped rapidly through an old field down the causeway, to the spot where the shell had burat among our troops, for the purpose of ascertaining the number of our wounded.

Further particulars of the fight on New Year's day. The Charleston Mercury has some further and very interesting accounts of the fight which took place in the neighborhood of Port Royal; Wednesday last, the 1st inst. The narrative of the affair, as published in the Mercury, of Saturday last, and which was transfered to our columns, was in the main correct. Our forces consisted of Col. Jones' Regiment, S. C. V., a battalion of three companies from Col. Dunovant's Regiment, S. C. V., under Lt. Col. Barnes, and a detachment of mounted men under Major Oswald, of Col. Martin's Regiment of cavalry. The Mercury, of the 7th inst., adds. After it had been determined to attack the enemy, it became necessary to have their position, numbers and material carefully reconnoitered. This duty was cheerfully undertaken by Orderly Sergeant Thomas B. Chaplain, of the St. Helena. Mounted Rifies. On the night of the 31st, he mounted his hors and rode down to a point within sight of the Yanke

rting on this perilous under taking, he left his roll book with his Colonel, who gave him the necessary permit to pass our lines — remarking that if he was taken, he must destroy it--"I don't intend to be taken alive" was his reply. One of the principal features of the fight of Wednesday was the deployment of an entire regiment of the enemy as skirmishers, with the view of crossing Kean's Neck, in order to turn our left. They were met by our skirmishers, conspicuous among whom was Captain Tompkins's company, from Jones's regiment. These brave fellows left their mark upon the invaders, and many a Yankee fell before their unerring aim; but, owing to the complete arrangements and forethought of the enemy in providing litters, their killed and wounded were all rapidly removed. During their retreat, Major Oswald's cavalry, with double-barrel guns and revolvers, did good service. It is due to truth to state that the Yankees did not, as at first stated, throw away their guns.

Capt., Croft, Jones's Regiment, a graduate of the Citadel, occupied an advanced post on Chisholm's Island, and marched his company in retreat in complete order. He remained in the rear with five others, and tore up the bridge on the causeway, which effectually prevented the crossing of the enemy's artillery. So arduous was this task, that the delay occasioned painful suspense, and at one time it was feared that he was out off. Soon after the fight, Col. W. E. Martin, and Lieut. Col. S.

It is due to truth to state that the Yankees did not, as at first stated, throw away their guns. In advancing, they were never beyond the range of their gun-boats, and were always well covered by the forest or undergrowth. Just as the enemy had reached the shore, Gen. A. J. Bonelson, with Moore's 1st regiment Tennessee volunteers, came up, flushed with their quick march — a noble set of fellows. Great was their disappointment at finding the enemy gone.
