On the 27th ult. several regiments left Hilton Head, S. C. to participate in the attack on Charleston.--A correspondent of the Baltimore American, writing from that point on the 25th, says: This morning four of the iron clads left for North Edisto to await the high lides to enter Stono Inlet, and to proceed by that route, if not to Charleston, so near it as to make them unpleasant neighbors, and to render the occupation of James Island by the rebels impossible with the batteries they have in position. They have few or no heavy guns, having placed them in positions where they will be of no use. Our enemies will have no time to change the useless batteries they have placed on Morris and Sullivan's Island.--useless because we would have to go out of our way to attack them.
