The fight at Santa Rosa — interesting letter from a surgeon. The following letter, from a surgeon, who present in the fight at Santa Rosa, written to his father in North Carolina, appeared in the Petersburg Express of Monday: Camp Gladden, Fla., October 26, 1861. You will see, from the heading of my letter, that we are again in camp. We left the Navy-Yard, I think, on the 8th, (the day previous to our expedition against Santa Rosa) and are once more living in the woods.

The bridge Burners — the Federal loss at Fort Royal--Gen. Lee, &c. Augusta, Nov. 12. --The Savannah Republican, of this morning, states that it has been informed by a gentleman from the interior that the bridges over Chickamoga Creek were burned by discharged hands, and not by the Unionists. A negro who escaped from Hilton Head, says that he heard some of the Federal officers say that their loss at the battle of Port Royal was fifty killed. The Republican publishes an extract of a letter dated at St. Simons Island on the 9th inst., which says that one Federal vessel passed on the day previous, and three more on that day bound South. They had also passed Fernandina. Gen. Lee is at present in Savannah. There is nothing positively known of the movements of the Yankees.

From our Southern exchanges we make up the following summary of news: The Bombardment of port Royal. The Charleston Courier, of the 11th inst., came to us last night with a full description of the scenes of the fight, the number and calibre of the guns mounted on Fort Walker, &c., which, though interesting, are too long for publication this morning. Accounts from eye-witnesses, and others who participated at Fort Walker, in the late terrible and unequal combat with a formidable expedition carrying over 400 guns, which we copy from the Courier, enable us to present the following summary: Commencement of the action. The enemy's fleet, consisting of about thirty-six steamers, besides transports, on Thursday morning, about quarter past eight, commenced moving slowly towards the batteries, in line of battle. The long roll was immediately beat, an
