June 20.--The firing commenced this morning with great vigor, continued heavy for eight hours, when it was reduced to the scale of moderation. About four o'clock we were called into line, moved up to the parapet; a false alarm; we returned to our holes after about two hours, which we spent in waiting for Yanks, but they failed to come. Captain Norwood slightly wounded; Dugan killed in camp at the time. June 21.--The firing more moderate than usual. It is reported that a great many of the enemy's guns have been removed. No loss in our regiment to-day. June 22.--Firing moderate; weather fine James Dye went to hospital sick; three wounded in the regiment. We continue to get news of Johnston's approach. June 23.--Firing not heavy, but very steady. A very refreshing rain fell during the n
e sloop below, and the Essex. They commenced a bombardment. May 9.--False alarm last night. Yanks shelled some, and are shelling to-day occasionally. Five mortars are planted behind the point. May 10.--Yanks bombarded the latter portion of the night. Had an artillery skirmish this morning. We had one lieutenant and two privates killed and several wounded.

[So far from this being the case, these blacks could not always get ce. The fight has been very warm to-day. I received a shot in the foot, but it is slight. The Yanks attempted to charge the works, but was repulsed. It has clouded up and is raining. We have a m
w, bound to New-York, with a valuable cargo of teas, silks, etc. We burned her and then went to Barbadoes. Our next prize was the Star of Peace, which we captured on the twelfth of March; she was from Calcutta, bound to Boston, with saltpetre! The schooner Aldebaran was the next victim of the pirate Florida. For fifteen days did we look for another, and she brought us the most needful article, and that was coal. The Lapwing was captured on the twenty-eighth, and sent a cruising against Yanks, and captured the ship Kate Dyer, and bonded her for forty thousand dollars. On the thirtieth March fell in with the bark M. J. Colcard, from New-York, bound to Cape Town, and she was burned. On the line we met the Oreto, (Lapwing,) coaled, and then took a cruise along the line, and on the seventeenth April burned ship Commonwealth, from New-York for San Francisco. On the twenty-third April, burned the bark Henrietta, from Baltimore for Rio Janeiro. The next day (twenty-fourth) burned t

The three large hotels all vacant of any thing like human beings, save that in one corner of the Franklin Hotel lives, or seems to live, a man of fifty years, with his wife and young boy. Houses still occupied are wonderfully dilapidated. Generals Blair and Osterhaus occupied the Franklin House. General Morgan L. Smith pitched his tent with his division west of the town. Very soon in came female after female, all wanting protection. These wicked Yanks would steal chickens, would shoot hogs. Colonel Coleman, (Eighth Missouri,) Provost-Marshal, gave them guards, and raids upon chickens ceased. In leaving Tuscumbia, the rebs burned up thirty-five bales of cotton, but inflicted no other damage upon the place. In truth, those thirty-five bales of cotton were all that was worth destroying in the town. This morning we returned, and here we are in our old camps. We have lost some two killed and six wounded. The enemy, to our knowledge, has
