Latest from the Southern coast. movements of the Yankees — Another fight supposed to have taken place at Port Royal, &c. Augusta, Nov. 20. --The Savannah Republican, of yesterday morning, says that the Federals have made no movement since the capture of Fort Walker. The most reliable information is, that the enemy has landed about 3,000 men at Fort Walker, and about 1,000 at Braddock's Point. A few of the Federals occasionally make a visit to Beaufort in the day time, but their vessels or the forts at night. The Yankees have forced a number of negroes into service, and put them to picking and ginning cotton. The Republican says there was heavy and continued firing heard on yesterday, in the direction of Port Royal. It is supposed that the enemy attempted a landing under cover of their guns, which was evidently resented by our troops. Gen. Sherman has issued a proclamation inviting the South Carolinians to return to their homes and occupations.
event it but a strong force located on James Island, ready to resist such a passage. An entrenched camp and heavy forces stationed there, would enable us to get what we want — a battle on land. With these Charleston could not be taken until after a bloody pitched battle, in which we will never believe the Yankees can prevail. The third quarter of attack is the deep waters of the harbor channel. Fortunately, the forty-gun frigates, which have so recently demonstrated their powers in Port Royal, cannot get in, and the gun-boats and smaller craft alone are capable of making the attempt. They must pass between the tremendous batteries of Forts Moultrie and Sumter, which have splendidly drilled artillerists to work and arm their formidable guns, possessing, too, the advantage of a plunging fire. The only danger here is, the enemy's attempting to run the gauntlet in large numbers in the day, with the prospect of some boats getting through, or by sneaking in at night. To prevent th
first carried out, would fall short of the expectations of the country and of the capabilities of the expedition, while Port Royal, I thought, would meet both in a high degree. I therefore submitted to Brigadier-General Sherman, commanding the mof the brigades very justly laid great stress on the necessity, if possible, of getting this frigate into the harbor of Port Royal. The meaning of these paragraphs is not very obvious to the public. From the first of them, the writer seems to hat the same time; to wit: the landing of the military force and the establishment of a naval depot. The seizure of Port Royal, the Commodore thinks, "meets both" the intentious of his Government "in a high degree;" and we are to infer that Port Port Royal is to be a point at which the Northern land forces are to disem" bark in large numbers. This part of the programme, however, does not seem to be executed with alacrity. The advices which we receive from that point have not yet indicated any c
Potomac yesterday kept up a continuous fire on all the small vessels passing up and down the river, but as far as we can learn they did no damage. Information received from Poolesvills yesterday states that the rebels have evacuated Leesburg, and it was surmised that they had moved towards Romney, to attack General Kelly. On the other hand it was supposed that they had gone South upon hearing of the result of the naval expedition. Nothing later concerning the state of affairs at Port Royal has arrived. Though the Charleston papers of the 12th inst., state that Beaufort was not then in the possession of the Union troops, yet, the fact that we publish in our columns to day advices from there on the very same date, by the Coatzacoalcos, proves that the assertion of the Charleston journals is without foundation. According to the same authority, rebel reinforcements were being sent to Beaufort. The Pacific mail steamer which arrived here yesterday from California, brou
