The battle on James Island.brilliant Confederate victory. [correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.] Charleston, June 20, 1862. The late battle in the vicinity of this city was a far more brilliant and important affair than at first supposed. The enemy were so badly beaten that they have not fired a shot from their gunboats or batteries since, though previous to the fight they kept up a constant cannonade day and right. Considering the number of troops engaged on our side, and the length and fierceness of the combat, the battle is one of the most remarkable of the war. The rout of the invaders was complete. They abandoned their dead and fled in wild confusion to their gunboats. Tow of their regiments — the 79th New York, (Highlanders,) and one from Michigan, fought well. One company of the former penetrated as far as our breastworks, and its captain was killed while mounting them aparts. The enemy had five regiments in the fight. Our force engaged consisted of three com

One company of the former penetrated as far as our breastworks, and its captain was killed while mounting them aparts. The enemy had five regiments in the fight. Our force engaged consisted of three companies of South Carolina artillery--the Charleston battalion, which numbered only 150 men; the Eutaw battalion, 400 strong. and Col. MeEnery's Louisiana battalion. Other regiments came to the relief of these troops; but most of the fighting was already over. It will be see

giments in the fight. Our force engaged consisted of three companies of South Carolina artillery--the Charleston battalion, which numbered only 150 men; the Eutaw battalion, 400 strong. and Col. MeEnery's Louisiana battalion. Other regiments came to the relief of these troops; but most of the fighting was already over. It will be seen, therefore, that the enemy outnumbered us two or three to one. Their greatest loss was occasioned in attempting to storm our entrenchments, behind which Col. Lamer's artillery was stationed. Col. Lamar was the hero of the battle. He was severely wounded. Col. McEnery also deserves great praise. He led his Louisianians fearlessly into the fight, with the watchword, "Remember Butler." Every day's exploration of the surrounding woods reveals additional dead of the enemy. It has been ascertained that a body of the Federals attempted to cross a swamp, where many of them stuck fast in the mud and were killed and wounded by our shells. Finally, t
he greater part of the battle was fought by the rank and file "on their own book." We have four Confederate Generals in this quarter, but not one was in command. To the rank and file, then, be the glory given of having achieved one of the most brilliant successes of the war. If the Confederate Government is looking for material for more. Brigadier Generals, let promotion fall upon the lion hearted Col. Lamar, who defended the entrenchments and the gallant and chivalrous McEnery, who, like Blucher, came into the field just in the nick of time.
