The South-side.

On Thursday last three Yankee gunboats ascended the Nottoway and Blackwater rivers, but were driven back by the forces under Gen. Pryor. They were subsequently reinforced by two others, and at last accounts the five were lying ten miles below Franklin in the Chowan, and supposed to be preparing for another attack.

The Petersburg Express says that the Yankee accounts of the recent fight at Zuni and Joyner's Ford make out a much more disastrous result to the Yankees than was supposed. Two hundred killed and wounded, and they opposed by a mere handful of Confederates, was indeed a glorious result.
