sailants repulsed — suspension of the shelling of the city. Charleston, Aug. 25. --The enemy's land batteries have been maintaining a steady fire on Sumter all day. The fighting at Wagner was chiefly confined to the firing of our pickets on the enemy's suppers, who continue to approach Wagner. This evening, about dark, the enemy's batteries opened a furious fire on Wagner, preparatory, as was supposed, to an assault. The following official dispatch has just been received from Fort Sumter: 7:35 P. M.--There is an assault now being made on battery Wagner. (Signed) Alfred Rhett, Colonel Commanding. Fort Johnson, 7:45 P. M.--The enemy is assaulting battery Wagner, evidently in heavy force. (Signed) C. H. Olnstead, Colonel Commanding. The musketry has cased. The enemy is firing a few mortar shells at battery Wagner. The first assault has been repulsed. No more shells have been thrown into the city since daylight on Monday morning.
