Affairs at Charleston. --On Thursday night a party of Confederates, under Capt Stephen Elliott, Jr., proceeded from Charleston to Qtto Island, and, with a torpedo, blew up a Yankee schooner lying off there. Lieut James Lowades, A. A. G. of General Walker, on Thursday last declined to hold communication with Col. Higginson, commanding one of the so called South Carolina regiments (negroes) on Hilton Head. This Yankee Colonel was in his boat by one of the officers of these troops who age not to go in but to be put in the fore front of the battle, In Charleston flour has fallen $28 a barrel sugar 25 cents a pound and rise cents a pound
The Yankees at Beaufort, S. C. --From a gentleman of St. Augustine, Fla., who, with his family, was taken to Beaufort by the Yankees, the Savannah Republican gathers the following information of the situation of affairs in Beaufort up to last Saturday: There are at Beaufort three regiments of whites and two of blacks, all of which were encamped near the town, There are no gunboats at the town or nearer than Hilton Head. The iron clads are still at the latter place undergoing repairs. The Yankees manifest great disappointment at the result at Charleston, and are severe, in their bitterness, that the place shall yet be taken, even at the cost of their last man. The privates of the army, though, are thoroughly disgusted with the war and anxious to see it closed on any terms. Our informant heard them speaking freely of their loss on the iron-clads, which they said was very heavy. The negroes make but trifling soldiers; they invariably run a fight and often shoot each other
