Gen. Geismar did not hesitate to engage them.— The action was continued with great resolution on both sides from seven in the morning till two in the afternoon, without any decisive result. Both parties retired to their former positions; but at nightfall, General Geismar took advantage of the false securi ty ofthe enemy, advanced rapidly and attacked the camp, which the Turks had already began to strength en with some redoubts. The attack was conducted with so much skill, and executed by our troops with so tnuch courage, that the enemy, though far supe rior in numbers, could not withstand their impetu osity. The Turks being broken on all sides, sought safety in flight. A complete rout succeeded. Five cannon, 24 pair of colours, 500 prisoners, 700 wag gons laden with ammunition, and all kinds ot pro visions, and a great quantity ot arms, baggage, and horses, fell into the hands of the victors. The Turks were driven back to their entrenchments at Kalefat At the departure of the courier, the number of the killed left by the enemy on the field was not known, but considering the ardour with which he was pur sued, his loss must be supposed to have been very considerable. _ _ Steam ship of liar .—A late English paper, con tains the following notice ot the purpose ol the British Government to construct some steam fit gates.

The unmeaning clamour of our Southern brethren, upon this topic, will probably fiud its speediest corrective in the ridicule which is so well applied, in the present instance, by one of their own newspapers. The nature of this kind of excitement is very well illustrated in one of the Waverly novels, in tlie case of honest Andrew Fairservice, the .Scotch patriot, who never failed to execrate tlie union between England and Scot land, in every misfortune that betel him, even to the casting of his horse's shoe. cause of uninterrupted prosperity to Scotland. 1 The union has, neverttmless, proved a ITEMS.
