Affairs on James river.

We have received but little additional intelligence relating to the artillery engagement at Coggin's Point on Thursday night. It is, however, confidently asserted that the enemy's fleet suffered considerable damage. A report reached us from Petersburg last evening that the Federal had landed a force on the south side of the river, near Coggin's Point, probably with a view to prevent any further demonstration against their fleet from that quarter.

Heavy and rapid artillery firing down the river was distinctly heard in the city yesterday afternoon, continuing till 8 o'clock. The cause of this firing, and the point at which it occurred, were not ascertained.
