--There was some firing last night on our lines, from Batteries 7 and 10, on the eastern side of the city, resulting from a supposed advance of the enemy on Jenkins's front whilst his men were relieving pickets.
The firing lasted about 30 minutes, and amounted to little or nothing.
There is nothing doing to-day but shelling on the part of the enemy.
