From Charleston.

Charleston, October 1.
--The enemy fired two hundred pounder Parrotts all day yesterday, at intervals of fifteen minutes, alternately at Forts Sumter and Johnson, and Battery Simpkins. Fort Moultrie and Battery Simpkins replied vigorously. No casualties or damage of any consequence on our side. Very heavy firing is going on between the hostile batteries this morning.

[Second Dispatch]

Charleston, Oct. 1.
--The firing during to-day has been heavier than for several weeks past. The enemy has been steadily pounding at the ruins of Sumter from his old batteries on Morris Island beyond Wagner. His fire was chiefly at Sumter, but he also shelled Fort Johnson. Our batteries and Fort Moultrie replied with brisk and steady fire. All quiet to night.
