Our tidings from Port lloyal, says tlie Charleston Mercury of the iilid inst., arc meagre. The distance of Hilton Head from the i O mainland, and the hazardous nature of all navigation i" the neigh l>oi hood, render it dillioi! t ( , 'i?u s to approaeh near enough to form any \ery delinatc idea of their number or movements. The Savannah Jii'/mhltean states, on good authority, that the enemy have aban" i doned Beaufort and Port ltoyal Island, on which it is situate*!, ami arc now confined to Hilton Head, and Pinekucy Island, iininediatcly west and seperated from the former by Skull Creek, and the point known as 13ay Point, on Jenkins' Island, across the Sound and opposite Fort Walker on Hilton Head. It is said that they arc throwing up extensive and formidable works on Hilton Head, thus giving evidence of an intention to make a permanent lodgment on the Island. Skull Creek is now ' completely under their control, and the woiks | at J h addock's Point, on the south end of the j Island, command the cutrei.cc to Daufuski Sound. A party of two Yankees ventured on the mainland a day or two since, when being discovered by our men, one of them was captured; the other got to his boat in time, and made l . . i good his escape. The prisoner states that the I fleet landed 1 .'1,000 of the 20,000 with whom ! .1 -_:i 11 - 1 i * : wiuy set ami. iic couiu give 110 accoum 01 ; llio remaining 7,000. lie was brought to Charleston on Wednesday. The Columbia Carolinian publishes the following interesting cxtraet laoni a private letter: Edisto Island is nearly laid in ruins. Mr. J. J. Mikcl, Mrs. llopkinson, and Mr. I. Lcgare, have all burned their entire crops, negro houses, barns, Arc., and at a meeting of the planters this has been universally determined on.. The same spirit actuates the owners of all the Sea Island plantations. 1 fully expect to hear that the entire Sea Island crop of this State will meet a similar fate. None will be saved, for all is in the fields or gin houses; thus twenty thousand bales, the product of this State, amounting two millions five hundred thousand dollars, will be destroyed by the hands of the proprietors themselves, rather than it shall fall .......i?i ?.wi ill LV^ mv; 1'uo.ivwivu ui v/u4 t (\IKKU i;nviiiii;^ auu I have no reason to believe that Georgia will pursue any other course. Her people arc as self-sacrificing ?s ours. The Sea Island crop of last year was estimated at forty thousand bales, and this year the favorable seasons made the planters calculate on forty-five thousand bales.?Should the vandals over-run Florida, and make any demonstration on the Sea Island producing portions of that State, you may expect the planters to follow our example, and thus will the entire line staple crop of this Confederacy be totally destroyed, estimated in ....Kwx C? 1 GA 4 1 ^0 n lmlr? to till III; (It v X VV iu v A tw u t'iiivj ii viii iviii IV/ in u millions but tbis is not all. The cultivation of tbis article will not be resumed while the war lasts. It is known to you that the seaboard of So. Carolina, Georgia and Florida, are the only regions of the earth where extra fine cotton, termed Long Staple, can he successfully produced. Now, the production of this article is ii.di>p* u>ahle to the manufactories of Bolton, Lancashire, and many other of the districts in England, France, Germany and Switz erland. There is no substitute for it. Unceremonious Treatment of John Hull. ?The British ship Storm King, which arrived at Quebec on the 1 Oth inst., reports that the F.S. ship Portsmouth ran into and tried to sink her on the 14th September, in the Irish channel. The only re 1*011 that the Captain can give for his conduct is, that a ship oi the same name cleared from Liverpool at the same time for a southern port, loaded with military stores. Matches of an excellent quality are being successfully nanufactored in -Petersburg, \ a. Tlie Eueni),N Account of the Battle of Belmont. The Cairo correspondent oi' the St. Louis Jhnwcml writes as follows pn the day after our victory at Lelniont : The gloom which saddened all our hearts at ; the news of our defeat at Columbus last night ' is somewhat dispelled l>y tbe light of thisbcau! tiful morning. Although there is no disguij sing the fact that we were defeated, and badly, too, the result is not as bad as first reported. Belmont is a secession camp with a few dwellings, on the Missouri side of the Mississippi river. The gun boats advanced and opened fire on our batteries near Columbus, diverting the attention of the rebels, while our lleet landed the soldiers above. Our troops made a short march, met the enemy, drove them back on Belmont, captured it and burnt the tents. The rebel loss was severe, and the ground was literally covered with rifles, revolvers, &c., which our soldiers, finding them superior to their own appropriated. Had we retreated when we had captured Belmont, we should have gained a splendid victory; but being so elated with success, we got a little careless, and before wc were aware of it, reinforcements were sent over from Columbus, in overwhelming numbers, which flanked our little army, and it was obliged to Vitf f t ll/t liAilfe f rtf ? *1 . 1 v. d ? n-iil.ii hi i'vinio nn Hint on jiurmuil'j uiiui'l <i terrible lire from tlic enemy. It was here that the gun boats did such admirable execution, in covering the retreat of our fleet. The rebel cavalry pursued us along the banks of the river, doing us great damage until within reach of our gun boats; which scattered them like chaff with grape and canister. The rebels have better guns than we, but not as well served; they shoot over, invariably They have better arms than we have, and arc well disciplined, and thev willJight. "Waking Up the Wrong Passenger."? The Richmond Disjxilch sav*: Our spirited contemporary, the Yieksburg JSun, it seems, has excited the deadly ire of some of the speculating vampires of his section. Conscious rectitude makes him a host within himself, and we doubt not that the detestable class of extortioners who has been so severely and justly denounced by the will be chary how they undertake to eary their threats into execution. The dnv of retribution is modi. and those wnrsn. than Lincoluitcs who infest all our towns and cities will not much longer be allowed to prosecute their damnable trade of preying upon the necessities of the public. The Sun says ; "We were called upon yesterday by several persons whom the 1 cap appeared to fit,' as re_ gards our leader o( yesterday. We say now to one and all of them that if the article they complain of fits them, if they are to l?e ranked among the thieves we have denounced, we arc ready to sustain our position. The Sun has ,.i it. .1,..,^,, :i jlivx iiv-"> uuun in u^iiuiiijv;iii^ auj' viilainy, and we do not propose to tarnish its reputation. We openly proclaim our hostility to' the entire set, and if they choose to 4 mob the Sun oHiee," as we just now have heard lias been threatened, we trust that we will be enabled by the strength of our right arm to send a few of them tc their 'master, the devil.' AVife of General McClellan.?The Boston Courier is responsible for the following: i i> * /"< i af.ni 11 ir t a icw years since vieneiai ivicv_,ieiiau oiiercci his hand in marriage to Miss Ellen Marcy, a beautiful and accomplished lady, a daughter of Col. Marcy, of the United States Army. Col. Marcy objected to the union on the sole ground that lie could not consent to the marriage of his daughter to any gentleman belonging to the army. McClellan at once resigned his commission, and accepted the placo of Chief Engineer upon the Illinois Central Railroad, at a salary of $8000 a year, and three years since lie was married to Miss Marey, and now, having re-entered the army, is 1 General Coininanding-in-Ohicf.
