Formidable Preparations.

--A letter from Charleston to the Columbia Guardian, says:

‘ Four hundred artillerists or more are wanted for the guns on the Islands. The portion of Col. Gregg's command previously left on Sullivan's Island joined the others on Morris' Island, Wednesday evening. Gen. Beauregard has called for more troops. He is changing the position of the largest guns, and preparing for protection from sea. He has made a very favorable impression, and inspired general confidence.
