The Yankee Monitors at Fort Royal.

The French steamer Catinet has arrived at Charleston, and parties on board of her represent the results of the recent battle of Charleston as far more disastrous to the iron fleet than any account yet published would indicate. Two of the Monitors, it is said, were completely riddled, and can with difficulty be kept afloat. The rest of the turreted monsters were so badly battered and injured as to render it impossible for them to go again into until they have received repairs, which cannot be obtained at Port Royal. In the meantime the vessels are in no very secure plight to undertake the voyage to Fortress Monroe. Official advices from Port Royal report that three Monitors, with a very large fleet of gunboats, transports, &c., could be seen in that harbor.
