--Much curiosity has been manifested to learn the tenor of Gillmore's reply to Beauregard. I learn, says the Charleston correspondent of the Mobile Tribune, that Gillmore retorted by saying that Gen. Beauregard was fully aware of the length of time the city had been under siege, and of the lapse of time since the commencement of the bombardment, so that if he did not give notice to non-combatants to leave, it was his own fault; that as to Gen. Beauregard's threat of retaliation, he treated it with scorn, and that he concluded by expressing his fullest confidence as to what must he the final result of the siege.
