From Charleston.

Charleston, Oct. 10.
--The enemy's batteries on Gadberry Hill were shelling Fort Johnson steadily yesterday. --Our batteries were firing at Gregg and Wagner.

The enemy has mounted a heavy Parrott gun at Cumming's Point.

There was very little firing last night or this morning.

Yesterday a grand review of all the infantry and artillery forces on James Island was made by Gen. Ripley. The display was a very fine one.

[third Dispatch.]

Charleston, Oct. 11.
--Our usual regular fire against the enemy has been kept up to-day, but the enemy has not replied, but continue working. They have no guns at Cummings's Point except the one mounted on Wednesday.
