June 19.

A skirmish took place between the Twentieth Indiana regiment, in General Kearny's division of the army of the Potomac, and a body of rebel troops, which lasted for more than an hour. The Union troops held their position with slight loss, having had only three men wounded. In the afternoon, Gen. Kearny complimented the regiment for its bravery and discipline.

The confederate schooner Louisa, laden with cotton, two flatboats, laden with rice, and a steam tug-boat, were captured about twelve miles up the Santee River, by a boat's crew of the United States steamer Albatross, blockading off the North-Santee River, S. C.
