Huger were withdrawn yesterday — the public buildings and public property in the Navy-Yard were all probably, after the evacuation of Yorktown was resolved upon — by the rebel Secretary of War, Gen.

Huger, across the country to Ocean View, the place of debarkation, which they reached at a little af column, bearing a flag of truce, when a halt took place, The Mayor informed Gen. Wool that Gen. Huger and the rebel troops had evacuated the city and restored the civil authorities; that there wer and Common Council met me and surrendered the city. The enemy, three thousand strong, with Gen. Huger, had fled but a short time before my arrival. The intrenchments through which I passed had

Huger, commanding at Norfolk, on learning that I had received this order, called on me and declared e ninth, and the officers pressent were, Col. Anderson and Capt.----, of the army, selected by Gen. Huger, who was too unwell to attend himself; and of the navy, myself, Corn. Hollins, and Capts. Steand our troops were retreating. I then despatched the same officer to Norfolk, to confer with Gen. Huger and Capt. Lee. He found the navy-yard in flames, and that all its officers had left by railroad. On reaching Norfolk he found that Gen. Huger and all the other officers of the army had also left, that the enemy were within half a mile of the city, and that the Mayor was treating for its surrof the Navy-Yard and other public property, added to the hasty retreat of the military under General Huger, leaving the batteries unmanned and unprotected, no doubt conspired to produce in the minds

Written orders were despatched to Major-Gens. Hill, Huger and G. W. Smith. Gen. Longstreet, being near my headquarters, recei advance by the Williamsburgh road, to attack the enemy in front; Gen. Huger, with his division, was to move down the Charles City road, in orned movement which had been planned, waited from hour to hour for Gen. Huger's division. At length, at two o'clock P. M., he determined to atnd--an estimate which is, no doubt, short of the truth. Had Major-Gen.

Accordingly, during the afternoon, Major Ash, aid-de-camp of Major-General Huger, came to receive the prisoners, in case I saw fit to turn them over to him, or to await the reply of the governmenfive o'clock P.

soners state that there are nine Federal regiments on the island, and that Gen. Isaac I. Stevens, of Oregon, (the chairman of the Breckinridge National Committee in the last Presidential campaign,) is in command. This man Stevens professed to be an ardent pro-slavery man before the war, and was here in Charleston, enjoying its hospitalities, only two years ago. There is much dissatisfaction here with the military authorities of the department, and a strong wish expressed for a change in the commanding officers. The South-Carolina troops are anxious to defend Charleston, and will do so successfully if they are permitted to. A report that we were to have the great services of Beauregard spread universal joy omong the troops. If, however, we cannot have Beauregard, we would be glad to get Huger, Magruder, Hill of North-Carolina, Whiting, Gregg, Joseph R. Anderson, or any other first-class general. A change of some kind is necessary to restore confidence to the troops and people.

It is probable, as we know that Longstreet's and Huger's divisions, supported by Hill's corps, holdHuger's divisions, supported by Hill's corps, hold that line. We lost no prominent field-officers, but many line-officers were wounded — several killed. Two of Hooker's aids had horses killed under them, and Lieut. Whiting, aid to Gen. Robinson, lost an arm. Colonel Morrison, a volunteer aid, whey belonged, and which is made up in great part of North-Carolina troops. This division, supported by the division of Gen. Huger, now advanced to meet our line, and in a little while the ball was fairly opened. So rapid was the rattle of the fire ct ensued, completely silencing the Yankee batteries in the woods, which had advanced to occupy the disputed ground.
