18th, on llig-shlp l)inmoro. oil' Charles

day beforo veslerday morning, by slego
guns of GmJ. Gilmore. At six o'clock
Dnhlgrcn p'oqeeded on board Welmuktii,
and with ll.o Ironsides and entire monitor
fleet, attacked batteries Wagner and Gregg,
with great fury, completely slleuolug Wag
ner nnd almost silencing Gregg. The wood
en gunboats, seven iu number, nNo joined
In tho assault, and enabled all tho shore bat
teries to pour their shot and shell Into Sum
ter. At ten o'clock, tho Admiral changed
his flag to thu Pa-sale, and, with tho IV
Innupiv tirnmx'ili'il H-ltlilll 1 .-1011 Vlirils of
Sumter, and shelled tho soa wall with Iho
rilled guns of tho-'o vessels, lor niiout an
hour, with marked effect. Sumter fired
about fifty return shots, doing no damage
to tho vessels, while Iho walls of Sumter
were badly scarred. Captain John Rogers,
or tho Cats-kill, went within 100 yards of
tho benoh lu front of battery Wagner; after
firing a number of shots, a shot from Wag
ner broke through tho vessel, nnd a piece
of the Interior lining struck Rogers, killing
him instantly, us well as a paymaster, who
was standing by his side. These were thu
only casualties on laiul or water, during
six hours' engagement. Thu damage done
to Sumter by thu siege guns of Gilmore, is
visible without glasses. Tho rebels had
erected a false wall oppofcilo our batteries.
It extended to within ten feet of thu top of
thu wall, and was forty feet high and ten
feet thick. This wall Is now a mass of
riilin whilst: tlm nlil wull Is broken full of
deep holes. Tho parapet is crushed and
ragged, anil inu uortuwesc wan is guppeu

with torpedoes. About a dozen of them
have been Us hid up In Stono. One explod

out of liu water, but- doing no damage.
No damage was dona to any of the vovaI.s i
during the fight. Tho Admiral nnd 'the ol
flcers nro confident or tho ability of the
monitors to butler down Snmter. He K
however, Inclined to save them 'for tho
heuvv work required after Sumter railroad,

They were required to keep Wagner aiilcl.'

The Wehawknu nnd Patapseo arc alatlqni'l ,
in such a position as to be able ( to, keep

kausas left, the fleet were at their moorings.
Gilmore announces that tho work thunifar
has been entirely satisfactory, and Out
Sumler has been damaged greatly. Tpo
los of Capt. Rogers Is much rcRrettcapy
tho Admiral. When the Arkansas icftal
seven o'clock, on tho morning of tho lOtli,
huge volumes of smoke arose from -Sumter,
from the burning of cotton. Officers
of tho Arkansas believe tho fort .was cap
lured, silenced or entirely destioycd by

New York. 22d. The tkntld hai the fol
lowing: Headquarters. Army of tho Poto-
man, 21st. Information from different
sources leads to tho belief that the rnbals (
are leaving our front, nnd going to Rich
mond. Deserters from Loo's arnv ,ajy
movements of troops toward Frcdcrjqkr
burg was only a ruo lo cover Lee's real
object, which was to lend his troop ikiViUi
ward by way of Gordonsville. .Day .before
yesterday, large bodies of rebel cavalry
marched towards tho Rappahannock, and
crosed at separate fords. Driving In,qu"r
pickets, they came boldly out In Ight.pf
our lines, nnd deployed in line lino oftlo
order. All the corps nlong tho river wefc
put under arms immediately, in which' po
sition they remained until morning, when
tho enemy had withdrawn. A cavalry Jte
conniovsanco was then innde, which went nn
far ns Culpepper, but found no enemy;
they on the contrary obtained such Infor
mation as leads to tho belief (hat th.o yvhqlo
rebel force hud left in tlic direction of Gor

thus raised, a body of from 300 to 000 rcg

by this arrangement, cannot be over evti
mated. Louisville, 22d. Tho Nuhvlllc Union '
says information, or a rellablo character,

There Is t great deal of suffering and
