These encounters, by interrupting their soundings and the location of their buoys, no doubt prevented our being attacked on Turesday, the 5th instant, before our reinforcements reached us I must also acknowledge the assistance extended to us by the gallant Commodore with his boats on the napt. Elliott had to command his batteries, I ordered, as soon as I reached Hilton Head on the 5th instant, Capt Stutt's company, (Hamilton Guards,) 9th regiment South Carolina volunteers, to march up

On the 6th instant, the fleet and transports, which had increased to about forty-five sail, would probably have attacked us had not the weather been very boisterous. In the afterrom her course, secured the safety of the Emma at the peril of his own vessel. The non-arrival of any reinforcements at Camp Walker, until the night of the 6th instant, also provented me from sending the four companies of the 12th regiment S.

C.: Sir: I have the honor of presenting my official report of the engagement on the 7th inst., between the Federal fleet, numbering fifteen war steamers and gunboats, and Forts Walker and Beauregard, upon Bilton Hr ders to carry it across early in the morning. They were dispatched, however, by the first steamer at my disposal on the 7th, and before they had reached half way across the Bay they were out off from Bay Point by the advancing fleet of the enemy,ccupying only onehalf terreplein behind the principal traverse — which was finished on the morning of the engagement, (7th instant,) the material not having arrived before the 4th instant. The retreat was commenced about three P. M., towards Fes appointment at the hour designated, prevented me from supporting Capt. Elliottas I desired.

Lynchburg, Va., Feb. 10. --The Lynchburg Virginian has received a private dispatch from Chattanooga, dated on the 9th inst., which states that the Federal gun-boats reached Florence about 4 o'clock P. M., yesterday. Troops were landed and the town occupied by them. They went up within a mile of Tuscumbia, Ala., last night. This morning they left and took to their gun-boats. A later dispatch to the Virginian from Chattanooga, dated to-day, says the reported fight at Bear Creek is untrue. The Lincolnites had again returned to Florence. No bridges had been burned on the railroad. Communication was entirely cut off between Chattanooga and Memphis. The Federals are landing at Eastport, Miss., 30 miles below Florence, on the Tennessee river. Memphis, Tenn., Feb. 10.--The Federal gunboats pass

The delays and dangers incident to the manner in which troops and supplies of all kinds were landed at the forts of Port Royal, and the absence of all means of retreat in case of disaster, had attracted my most serious attention immediately after I assumed command at Beaufort On the evening of the 17th ult. I immediately took steps for remedying the first and providing for the latter. With the double object of landing supplies on all weather at Bay Point, and at the same ime of furnishing the means of retreat beyond the range of the enemy's guns, I directed one of my volunteer aids, T. R. S. Elliott, to make an examination of the adjacent creeks to the north of the fort. He reported that about three miles from the month of Moss creek there was a depth of water sufficient for steamers dr

Smith's brigade, consisting of 6,000 men, cavalry, artillery, and infantry, arrived at Crown Point — a point on the Tennessee river — from Paducah, having marched a distance of one hundred and twenty miles over muddy roads, and crossing numerous swollen water coursed. On the 22d ult., the day after the arrival of the brigade at Crown Point, General Smith proceeded on a personal reconnoisance, on the gunboat Lexington, in the direction of Fort Henry. The gunboat proceeded up the west channel of the river to a point within one mile and a half of the fort. Three rebel steamers were discovered lying off the mouth of the small creek that empties into the Tennessee river just above the fort. A well-directed shell was fired from the Lexington, striking one of the rebel craf
Our cavalry are in pursuit. A large expedition for the South. Of the reported firing at Red Bluff, near Savannah, last week, the Herald says: The arrival of the sloop-of-war Savannah at this port from Port Poyal yesterday, may throw some light on this reported attack. The Savannah left on the 30th ult., and she reports that a formidable expedition, including all the light-draft vessels, several gun-boats, and a large land force, had sailed from Port Royal for the South on the 26th. Their destination was not stated, but it is highly probable that it is this portion of Commodore Dupont's expedition which is operating at New river and Red Bluff. What the Federals have Gained by it. The Herald thinks that if it be true that the Federals are in possession of the Memphis and Ohio Railroad bridge, they have got hold of a most important point, by which Columbus in completely isolated from Memphis, and Bowling Green is cut off from the same point, it is true there is
