He states that the engagement between our batteries and the enemy's ships re-commenced yesterday afternoon, Five thousand of the enemy's troops were designedly permitted to land under cover of their guns. A fierce fight ensued on the extreme Southern end of the Island between the newly-landed Yankees and our men. At the last accounts from this scene it was supposed that our men were driving back the enemy. Our batteries were admirably managed. The men fought bravely, and with firm determination. The Confederate gun-boats kept up a brisk and terrible fire on the enemy's ships. Our gun-boats were getting decided advantage over the enemy's ships, when their ammunition gave out. The C. S. steamer Curlew was sunk in the action. Her commander, Capt. Hunter, arrived here this morning.
