The telegraph brings intelligence of an engagement on the coast of South Carolina, where the Federal fleet, of which we have heard so much, seems to have commenced active operations.
Bay Point, the locality of the reported fight, is situated at the entrance of the bay leading up to Beaufort.
We refer the reader to the telegraphic column for such any as we have received.
