--The enemy was quiet all night — not a single gun was fired. The firing was renewed this morning at intervals of a half to three-quarters of an hour. Another monitor came up. General Beauregard visited Fort Sumter last night.


[Second Dispatch.]

Charleston, Nov. 6.
--The enemy's fire to-day has been from two monitors and battery Gregg at intervals of about fifteen minutes. The fire of Gregg has been principally directed against the southwest angle and that of the monitors against the eastern part of the fort. The falling debris now serves to aid in strengthening the fort.--From sunset Thursday to sunset Friday 485 shots were fired, of which 100 missed. The casualties to-day were two killed, ten slightly and two severely wounded, all of the 27th Georgia.
