A Morris Island letter lo the HtruUl

They do not allow a moment's ptecc. tiring

Torccor Federal troops hod just crossed the

10th. A despernto engagement commenced
this morning at 11 o'clock. Rebels made n
heavy attack on the corp ol Gen. Thomas.
running the right wing or our army. At
the same tltre they attacked the right wing,
which was tunuglit to be a reiiit. uens. aie
Cook's and Crittenden's troops were thrown
Into the engagement as soon as an opportu
nity offered, tint main portion or their forces
being on the match at the time. The light
mi the left wing was of a very desperate
ciiaiacter. The enemy was repulsed, but on
being reinforced regained their foimer po
sition, from which they were subsequently
driven niter ft severu engagement of over
mi hour. Gen Thomas' forces then charged,
driving tlio rebels nearly a mile and a half,
punishing them severely. About two
o'clock 1-. M. thu rebels made a lurious da-h
upon our center, composed of Van Clenve's
and Reynold's divisions. Vnn Cleave's ill
vfion was struck on the right Hank, and
being vigorously pushed by the rebels, fell
back and the lino was broken. and thu troops
becamo scattered. Gen. Thomas on the
left, and Gen. Lewis on the right, then
pushed their I'orces vigorously forutird to
ward the gap. nnd after a hard tight regain
ed the ground which hat! been lot tin the
extreme right. The fight disclosed the in
tention ol tho rebels, which evidently was
to get between us and Chattanooga. The
general engagement which commenced nt
11 a. M.. ended about r. m., Gen. Palmer
who hud gathered together our scatteied
forces, and Gen. Nagle, who hod been sent
from iho right to the centre, pushed forward
and eslnbllshed our lines as they had been
bel'oro the battle. Tho country where the
battle was fought Is level, but has a thick
iiudergiowth of small timber and brush
wood, and Is very unfavorable for the u-e
or artillery, very little or which wnsused.
Thu loss In wonuded was very heavy, but
extremely light in killed, for so heavy a
musketry engagement. No General was In
jured. The battle will probably be renewed

Tho Steamer McClellan, from Morris Is
land on the morning of the ltitli, lias arriv
ed. Gilmorn was mounting heavy guns on
Cummings Point, to shell Charleston. The
rebel lire from James Island still continues
but is not very effective. Sumter is still
held by the rebels.
Baltimore, 20th.- A Fortress Monroe tel
egram says there Is a rumor here, nnd be
lieved, that Richmond is being evacuated.
New York. 20th. A Motrin Island letter
represents the rebels busy repairing Sum
ter. Steamers are constantly plying be
tween Sumter nnd the city carrying mate
rial. Deserters say that they aro repairing
Sumter mid placing more batteries on James
Island. Ilenuregard Intends to assume the
olfenslvo in order to regain if possible Mor
ris Island. Charleston Is said to be full of
rebel troops. Other accounts say it will be
weeks yet beforo Gilmore can open on
Chui lesion. Tho mount iug or tho heavy
guns on the north end of Morris Island is
slow work under the lire of rebel batteries.
Glimoro has issued a congratulatory order
to the troops in which ho says, Charleston
and its harbor lies at the mercy of our ar
tillery." Chicago, 21st. 10 a. m. Louisville ills-

still going on without any dccUivo rcbults.
Cincinnati!, 21st. The Oomrwml'a dis
patch has tho follow lug account of Satur
day's light : Tho Initio commenced nt II
a.m., in tlio vicinity of Widow Glenn's
house, on thu road leading lo Chattanooga.
It soon becamo general, the enemy maun
vering his troops finely. Knrly in tlc no
tion the rebels mnde an impetuous charge
on Peltou and Tliom-.iti' latteries. a,tul live
out or six parot guns 'wero captured, and
Capt. Van Pelt taken prisoner.' At 2 v. M.
the contest became terrillc. The roll or
musketry was more deafening nnd continu
ous than at Stone river. About 2 r. m.. the dl
visinli in the center, hard pressed, had re
treated in disorder. Col. Burnett succeeded
in placing batteries, which soon checked
the enemy who In (urn were driven over the
same ground in disorder. Davis' division
fell back with heavy loss nnd every gun of
the 8th Indiana battery was lost. His forces
then milled and pushed the enemy back,
and re-took his gnus. Reynolds lost htnv
ily. but stubbornly held his position, driv
ing the enemy, but never leaving his line.
Palmer, who was overwhelmed, failed to
get otf his battery, and lost two gnus. Vnn
Cleaves division fought gallantly but he
was overpowered and failed to hold his po
sition. Our lino was pressed heavily nnd
wavered. The rebels exulting over their
apparent success, made the air resound
with cheers. They advanced along the
whole line, when u withering tiro or musket
ry roll'd from right to left along our line.
Until r. xi. tho lire was terrillc. Rose
crans began to grow anxious. Tho rebels
steudily advanced, pressing back all before
litem, ami iroui tins umu until dark me
battlu raged witli destsuctlve fury. At
dark firing had almost censed. The enemy
threw forward fresh troops on our right.
Our loss was veiy heavy. Rebel prisoners
say that some of their regiments were near
ly annihilated. Both armies occupy the
same ground as when the battle began. We
took several hiimdred prisoners, many or
them from the Fast.
New Yoik. 21st. A person who left
Richmond a few days ago, give tho follow
ing : Leu's army Is located near Hanover
with only about 20,000 men fit for duty.
It is understood If Mend advances Leo will
fall back lo Richmond. Tlio rebels have
no Idea tif evacuating Richmond. The in
formant was nt Charleston when Gllmore
bomlmrdfd the city. One of the shell
struck the chursh spire. They nil struck
within t lialf-mllu of each other, causing
great consternation. Thu city In nearly de
serted. Beauregaid had about !,000 men,
which has since been increased by Jenklu'ri
division to 14,000. Beauregard lost much
popularity when the Federals took Morris
