ippian, of the 23d, says: On Saturday, about midday, the enemy opened a brisk fire on our batteries, which continued an hour or more, doing no injury to our batteries or men as we could learn. The early hour of the attack was considered the signal for the commencement of the siege, but it appears that the mortar fleet were driven back at Grand Gulf, which would defer the attack indefinitely, even if it were the intention of the Feds to have continued the firing on Saturday. The fleet from Memphis has not yet made its appearance above the city. We learn by telegraph that the mortar fleet, being towed by tug-boats, was repulsed at Grand Gulf on Saturday last, and that the enemy fell back down the stream. This is the second time at this point that our light batteries of six and twelve pounders has repulsed the enemy; and if successful with small calibre, what ought we to accomplish with heavy artillery? All honor to our gallant artillerists in Claiborne county!
