A Slight Brush at city Point. On Wednesday night the enemy's gunboats in James river landed some two or three barges, filled with men, at City Point. They were not disturbed until Thursday morning, when our pickets fired on the group, and some two or three were seen to fall. The whole party speedily scampered to the barges and pulled off for the gunboats. One of the boats then dropped down the river, took position, and bombarded the Point for some half hour or more. No damage whatever was done to our men, but it is thought the rifled piece with which we replied from shore sent more than one shot into the piratical craft.
