Here follows tho correspondent's ac

Wednesday and Thursday were given

took place at 1 A. M., of Friday.
It is needless to give particulars it

death was flashing forth unceasingly :
upon heights beyond, a fort mounted i
with heavy gitiiK, upon too right and

murderous enfilading fire along the

place in front of them accessible. It
was in vain they could not got over,
if there was no enemy beyond, unless
they should fall into the ditch, batter
down the stocikades, or mount ihent
with long ladders. And so the gallant
men who had gained tho direct line,
regained the bill beyond, and the
second assault was ended.
