on James Island, five miles from the city, commencing by an attack of five regiments of Yankees reinforced by artillery, upon the batteries at Secessionville. Col. Lamar commanded the Confederates, and with four hundred troops repulsed the enemy three times with great slaughter. The enemy fought bravely, but was defeated. A tey was complete. The enemy's loss is supposed to be about four hundred, including thirty or more prisoners.--Our loss is estimated at from fifty to one hundred. Col. Lamar was wounded, and Captains Reed and King and Lieut. Edwards were killed. It was confidently expected on Monday evening that the attack would soon be renewed. Tnd night, for a week; yet men never fought with more determined bravery. The troops engaged were an entire regiment from Charleston, a battalion from Hagood's 47th Georgia regiment, Lamar's battery, and a detachment of the Chatham Artillery, of Savannah. Col. Lamar was complimented on the field by Generals Evans and Pemberton.
Affairs near Charleston. --The Charleston papers of Monday were received last evening. The Mercury says that on Sunday morning it was discovered that the enemy, under cover of the night, had planted a battery of small Parrott guns on the edge of the wood for which the gallant 47th Georgia had so gallantly but vainly struggled a few days before. The enemy soon opened fire upon one of Col. Lamar's batteries, the distance between the hostile batteries being about eight hundred yards. The fire was replied to, and the shelling was kept up with greater or less spirit throughout the day, growing quite rapid late in the afternoon. During the firing Private John H. Andrews who was reading in his tent, was struck by a piece of shell and instantly killed. An account of the severe engagement on Monday will be found in another place.
