The news from the Coast.

--The reported landing in force of the Yankees on Seabrook's and John's Island is not confirmed by our latest Southern advices. The Charleston Courier, of April 1st, thus alludes to it:

The reported advance of a large force of the enemy on John's Island was untrue. Only two regiments landed on Seabrook's Island. Their pickets were attacked by a party of seven of our men, and driven back, with the loss of one Yankee taken prisoner and two others reported killed, with no loss on our side. The enemy have not attempted a landing on John's Island, and many of the rumors brought by passengers Monday afternoon have since been officially contradicted. It is supposed to be the intention of the enemy to occupy both Seabrook's and Edisto Islands as a base of future operations.
