Interesting from Charleston.

--The members of the South Carolina Convention visited the fortifications in the harbor of Charleston, Monday, in the steamers Carolina and General Clinch. The batteries played with great effect. Governor Pickens was not in the company, being engaged in more important official business. Great anxiety, says a dispatch, is felt as to the Administration's course about Fort Sumter. If nothing is done soon, the fort will be attacked and captured. The sentiment of the people is entirely in favor of action. The Governor's communication has not yet been acted on. Col. Lamon's return is hourly expected.
