The fleet arrived at Port Royal on Monday, tbe.4th Inst. 6n Tuesday the smallo* gunboats rounded into tho channel Oder a Are from tho forts, which did no damage. On Wednesday tho weather prevented active operation*, hut M Thursday morning, 7th inst., the men-of-war and the gtuiboats advanced-to the attack. The action commenced at ten o'clock A. M. on Thnrs. 4*7, and was hotly carried on on both sides, and lasted ?bout four hours, at the end of which time the rebels were compelled, by the shower of shells, to abandon their works and b"at a hasty retreat, Tho rebel force, as ascertained from their papers, was three to four thousand men, under the command of Beniral Drayton, of South Carolina. Fort Rnaar^gard wag commanded by Colonel R. M. l)un?vant, formerly captain In the United States Army. Two forts wero captured?Fort Walker, on Hilton Head, ?minting twenty-three guns, and Fort Beauregard, on Bay Point, mounting nineteen guns. Tho guns wore of feoavy calibre. The forts were both new, ami splendid earthworks, of great strength, constructed in the holiest atyie of military science, and pronounced by our en gineers as impregnable against any assault by land forces. Thoy aro situated on opposite sides of the harbor, the distance between them being about two and a half miles In the direction of northwest and southeast. The Onal retreat of the rebels was a perfect rout. They left everything, arms and equipments of all kinds, even to the officers* swords and commissions. All the letter8 ttd papers, tooth public and private, order books an J documents of all kinds were left in their Aigiit, and ful' into our hands, affording our officers much valuable in formation. Among the papers was a despatch from JcfT. Davis to tfie commander of tho post, informing him or the ?ailing of the fleet, and that he knew their destination to be I'ort Royal. Aftor the capture of the forts the whole army?about It,COS men?were safoly landed and established on shore. 1 Tho fort* were but little injured, but the rebels could not stand the explosion of our big shell!!.
