From Mobile.

Mobile, August 4.
--Yesterday and last evening the enemy threw an infantry force upon Dauphin Island, seven miles from Fort Gaines. The fleet outside is large this morning. The Federal double-ender opened on the transport Dick Keys and then on the fort, which is replying slowly. General Maury calls on all to enroll themselves for battle. Great confidence prevails. A Federal force, estimated at sixteen thousand, occupies Holly Springs, Mississippi.
