The battle in Arknasas. We are still without full details of the terribles struggle that was in progress on the 6th, 7th, and 8th of this month, between the Confederates and Yankees, in the Northwestern corner of Arkansas; but this may be accounted for by the fact that the usual avenues of communication through Tennessee have been interrupted, and the Memphis papers are several days overdue. The Savannah has a special dispatch from Memphis, dated the 18th, which announces the arrival of Capt. Rogers at Fort Smith in charge of the ammunition train and the official account of the battle. The fighting is represented to have been terrible. The Confederates, who were mostly armed with shotguns and rifles, charged the enemy again and again, ubbing their guns and driving them back from their first position. The enemy had taken a second and stronger position. When it became known to his troops that Gen. McCulloch had fallen, they were frantic with rage, fighting like demons, charg
Edwin Heriot, Esq., a well known citizen of Charleston, S. C., and a gentleman of cultivated literary tastes, died on Thursday last. A trial trip of the new gunboats Morgan and Gaines, built at Mobile, was made on the 8th inst. The result was most satisfactory. Lieut. Fauntleroy, C. S. N., and Captain Postell, of Savannah, have lately arrived in the South from Europe. A grocer advertises in the following manner: "Hams and cigars, smoked and unsmoked." It is stated that there is but one county in Georgia where drafting was necessary to fill up the quota.

Affairs on the coast. The mails bring nothing of especial interest from Jacksonville, Fla., beyond the telegraphic reports already published. It appears from the Savannah papers, of Friday last, that the citizens of Jacksonville became indignant at the Mayor's proclamation calling upon them to make no resistance in case the Federals attempted to take possession, and the civil functionary made his escape from the town. On the 11th, the soldiers being around against a Mr. Remington, a commission merchant, and a native of the North, for utterance of treasonable sentiments, shot him dead on the street. Two other Yankee residents were killed while attempting to escape from the place in boats. The steam mills and all the lumber in the place were burnt; also, Mooney's foundry, and a Confederate gun boat on the stocks. The Savannah Republican, of Friday, says: The Confederate steamer Savannah proceeded down the river yesterday afternoon, look after the enemy's vessels, wh

The battle at Newbern. Wilmington, N. C., March 17. --Further details of the battle at Newbern have been received. The reports vary very materially as to the particulars of the affair. Apparently those most reliable assert that our forces engaged consisted of five skeleton regiments of infantry, a few companies of artillery, and a battalion which came upon the scene of action in time to help cover our retreat. The enemy was 22,000 strong, provided with formidable gunboats on the flank, and formidable field batteries in front, with a heavy reserve. Our entire force is probably over estimated at 5,000, yet they hold, their ground in the face of the great odds for full five hours.--The militia gave way first, and retreated. Our loss in killed and wounded is estimated to be between 100 and 150. The Federal loss is variously stated at from 800 to 1000. The only troops engaged on our side were North Carolinains. Col. Avery and Maj Hoke were both killed. Col. Haywood was n
