Siege of Charleston. --Since our last report, eighty-six shots have been fired at the city up to 6 P. M. Sunday evening, and twenty-six at Fort Sumter, The enemy on Saturday and Sunday, from some cause, stopped firing on the city for several hours — the longest intervals that have occurred during the last two months. A new rifle-gun, believed to be a two hundred-pounder Parrott, bearing directly on Fort Sumter, was mounted in Battery Gregg Saturday. The Yankee gunboat Flambeau steamed up Beach channel to a position off Colonel Rhett's headquarters Saturday, and sent in a flag-of-truce boat, which was met by a similar boat from Battery Marshall. The object of the truce was to send some fifteen boxes of clothing and some letters for naval prisoners in our hands. These have been brought to the city. The enemy's working parties, since Friday, have been busily employed on Wagner and on the battery bearing on the city. A small squad has also been at work on Gregg. T
