The British headed the Ashley river at the ferry, nine miles above Charleston, and attacked our fortifications at Charleston Neck, which they carried after a siege of five weeks, and compelled the city of Charleston to capitulate from famine. This portion of our present fortifications is called the Second Military District, and protects the communications from North Edisto to Charleston. Should the Yankees attempt to approach from that direction they would find it a hard road to travel, as we have a line of fortifications at this point protecting the passage of Ranfoul's Creek, and a second line covering an inundation from Stono to the Ashley, the strength of which the enemy will find out on exploration. A third line covers all the bridges communicating with Charleston, and all the ferries above are guarded with powerful tele de ponts. These works have be

From Charleston. Charleston, Nov. 16th. --The monitors ceased firing about 11 A. M. One monitor got aground during the engagement and was well peppered by our batteries. She got afloat again and returned to her position. A flag of truce was sent up at 3 P. M. and refused. A heavy fire from Gregg and Cumming's Point and two monitors, alternately, has been kept up on Sumter all day. No casualties are reported. Two negroes of the 54th Mass reg't, captured at North Edisto, were brought up to-day. They give a terrible account of Yankee treatment on Morris Island. Their regiment has lost over 400 by sickness and death.

During Saturday night the number of rifled shots fired was ninety eight, of which thirty-nine missed, and two hundred and nineteen mortar shells, of which ninety missed. On Sunday sixteen rifled shots were fired, of which six missed, and three hundred and twenty mortar shells, of which fifteen missed. A Story of two captured Massachusetts negroes. Two Yankee negroes, captured by Major Jenkins's pickets on North Edisto, while out oystering last Thursday, were brought to Charleston Monday morning and turned over to the Provost Marshal. They are miserable looking specimens of the Northern negro, and claim to belong to the 55th Massachusetts regiment, now stationed on Folly Island. They give a doleful account of their treatment on the Island, and represent that over four hundred of their regiment have sickened and died since their arrival in June last. The negro troops are subjected to the severest
ly repulsed, with a loss to the enemy of one hundred and forty prisoners, with their arms and accoutrements, and five barges. Many were killed and wounded. Our loss very slight. The enemy on the south end of James Island fell back hastily yesterday, before our men, leaving their dead unburied. Our picket line is re-established, but the monitors and gunboats are still in the Stono, firing heavily on our lines, and another transport has just come in with troops. The party from North Edisto landed at White Point, and advanced, but were soon met and driven back. So far, the enemy has been repulsed with the loss of about six hundred men. Samuel. Jones, Maj. Gen. Fort Johnson is on the northern portion of James Island, about midway between Castle Pinckney and Fort Sumter, looking out to the sea. The fact that the enemy made this unsuccessful demonstration shows that they have not yet relinquished the hope of reducing Charleston, which they style the birthplace
