Affairs about Wilmington.

--The Wilmington Journal of Saturday says:

‘ "Some heavy firing was heard here yesterday afternoon, which proceeded from two gunboats shelling Fort Anderson. No damage was done to the fort, and the shelling took place about four o'clock. There were six of our men wounded, two of them seriously. There were two monitors in the river, but neither came near enough to participate.--The fort replied and put a shot through one of the gunboats, compelling her to haul off."
