Latest from the Southern coast.

Augusta, Jan. 2.
--Private dispatches received, dated at Proctalgia on yesterday, state that the Federals attempted an advance from Port Royal Ferry, but were repulsed by the Fourteenth Regiment of South Carolina Volunteers, under the command of Colonel Jones. The Confederate loss was fifteen killed and wounded. One Yankee was taken prisoner, but their loss otherwise is not stated.

It is reported here that there was a large fleet of Federal vessels off Tybee (below Savannah) on yesterday.

[It is well to add to the above dispatch that it is reported here that the Government has received dispatches from General Lee, in which he expresses full confidence in the ability of the forces under his command to protect Charleston and Savannah from Federal invasion, and also able to prevent the Yankees from penetrating into the interior. Reporter.]
