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.
