North will not be much longer patient under the style of warfare carried on by the "man on horseback."--He has been as stupid a butcher as Burnside, and is now as meek and quiet as McClellan. Among the casualties in the firing Thursday night was John McDonald, of Richmond, instantly killed by a shell. He was a grocer, and resided on Church Hill. He was a member of one of the batteries from this city. The intelligence from Mobile shows that the enemy are making a demonstration there. The enemy have landed about 3,000 men on Dauphin Island, and the double-enders are engaging Fort Johnson.

From Mobile. Mobile, August 4. --Yesterday and last evening the enemy threw an infantry force upon Dauphin Island, seven miles from Fort Gaines. The fleet outside is large this morning. The Federal double-ender opened on the transport Dick Keys and then on the fort, which is replying slowly. General Maury calls on all to enroll themselves for battle. Great confidence prevails. A Federal force, estimated at sixteen thousand, occupies Holly Springs, Mississippi.
