I have the honor to be, very respectfully, your obedient servant, CHAS. H. OLMSTKAD, Colonel First Volunteer reglmont of Georgia, commanding post. Lieutenant Wilson was received at the wharf, and bis despatch conveyed to Colonel Olmstcatl. He remained In the boat until the reply was received, about fifteen minutes after, whon he imiuedlataly returned to Tybee and delivered It to Geuoral Hunter. Upon its contentsgo laconic and soldierly?becoming known, signal was made for the first gun to he fired. Gonoral Hunter, General Benham, Geaerhl Gilmore,Captain Rogers and others, immediately hurried out to the batteries, where a good view could be obtained. On Thursday morning, at tweuty lhroe minutes of eight, the fire was opened by a discharge of a thlrteeninch mortar from Battery Halleck, tired by Lieutenant Horace Porter, of tho Ordnance Department, the shell exnfodinr in the air: and this was succecdod bv a thir toon-inch shell from Battery Stanton, which exploded short. In a moment or two several of the mortars wore discharged from the other batteries; but none of the rhells were effective, the firing being wild and the ruses . too short. Three minutes after the firat fire Fort Pulaski responded from a ten-inch barbette gun, the shell exploding harmlessly over Tybee Island. The firing soon became generator) both sides, little damage being done by either for florae timo, as wo had not attained tho correct range, and the enemy were not quite sure of tho position of our battery. Soon, however, we Obeerved the dugt begin to fly from the pan cope, between tho south and southeast faces, and we were sitilrfod that tho breaching batteries (Halleck,Scott, Sigel, ItoClellan and Totten) on Goat Point were In full phty, sending their rifled balls,-solid ten inch shot and-heavy shell, with terrible eflbct, against the brick walls. Unfortu" uately, throngh some weaknoss of the iron carriages of tho ten-inch columbiads, two of tho Columbians which were throwing solid ten-inch shell wore dismounted 'by reooil, jumping backwards directly off tbeir carriage. ' The rilled guns were serwsd rapidly and with skill, and in an hour or so but'oos gun on the barbette wan lK play, and that fired oCly occasionally. The Are waaevideotly too hot for the rebels, as they did not stick to their gun9 very cloBely. Tjhey played at our different baStORles from their thirty-twoe and forty-twos in casemate; bat finding their range too short to reach the mortar battnrw t, they ooncoatrated 4Lelr fire upon the Coat Point batheries, occasionally giving Battery Bumside a few momente attention, when Sergeant Wilson, of tho. Sappers and Miners, who connuautte1 it,had got his range, and *r*.i annoying the fort with thirteen-iuch shells, which hurst in and over it. Ide damage was doneJit twenty miattes past eleven the flog on Pulaski canto down, tho lanyards having been out by afragment of shell from mortar No. 2, Battery Stanton, worked by Corpora) Trim/k ill, Seventh Connecticut Volunteer*. In* result ??? hautei with loud cheer*r&at extended Trot* battery to babnry along the line.

The Information as far as received puts the killed at ' thirty-two, andc the woundod at nicety; ten or the latter , will probably proi e fatal. The conduct of thu Vermont troops cn the occasion is spoken of in the highest terms, earning for the Green Mountain Boys laurels only to be won by tbe brave. They drove a superior number of the enemy from their fortified position, but were forced to relinquish It en the rebels beiug reinforced. Tbe leee of the enemy In this engagement must hare been heavy, as the well directed fire of our artillery mowed them by teres. ' Yesterday at tornoon, while Lieutenant O. B.

Not drcoived by this oi.r throe battones continued to play upon his position for some mlnutos longer, when word was brought to the General of the Vermont brigade that the creek wis easily lordable uf 8< me distance to the right of our batteries, and Colonel Hyde, In command of four companies of the Vermont 1 hird, who had Hkii mis lied in advance of all oiboro, was ordered to send two of his companies across the creek at the point where it wan said to he only koce-diep, to advance them to the enemy's left and clurgo tho work In rear. Ho according ly sunt aero.-s companies I) and K, and supported them very cloecly with compunios E anil K. Meanwhile our batteries hucarao silent. Com (males 0 and F wore led by Moutonant \Vhitteni"re.#No sooner were they in the Stream than tho water was found to bo much deeper tin. i had born stated;.the men went to their armpits, and every oltargo of their ammunition was, of course, thoroughly soaked. This attempt was mndo below tho dam, and it iH possible that the enomy, when t^snw the iutuntion to cross, lot in more water by a floodgate than hud hi on in the stream. While the men were in the stream, a large body of ihe ruemy, e-limited at throe regiments, opened upon them from a ritlo pit on tho very bank, and this terri bin Uro cut down nearly half their number. Never, how over, was a Uro received w ith greater ste idiness or more g'ortous intrepidity. Except those hit, not a man of the magnified.i .vcrmouters wavered, but ail finely pushed on, and wilh one about aruse upon the hank, and rushed upon the enemy with the bayonet, and fairly drove them out in utter rout and confusion; but tho contest wa too unequal. No supports were within proper distance; and til nigh lbs enemy was driven away from the first line of pits, and the other two companies of the Third wore in tho water to truss, those on tho other side were ordered to roi real, and did so, very reluetantly, however,aud fighting tenaciously at evory step. Once more our batteries reopened, and kopt up their fire with groat vigor until dark. Meantime the blood of the Green klou.utuin it ys was up, and at dusk the Vermont Fourth, Colonel Sioi gliton, and tho Vermont Sixth, Colonel Lord, made a bravo but ineffectual attempt to pass tho stream on the dam; hut the enemy had the gun in his one gun battery trained particularly upon this point, and they wore swept back by the combined fire of that gun and tho enemy's rifles. There was considerable Iocs in lbs Sixth,"which was in advance. Tho Division General at this time ordered the firs to ccoso,nnd our men slept upon their arms in the poeiHons they respectivc'y held, and beyond doubt the fight will bo rouewed to-day. Our loss cannot yet be positively known, but it is not far short of one hundred in killed, wounded and missing. Below we give names as fnr as wo could learn them. All agree that the loss of the enemy has been severe. Is.my were seen to fall, and they wore observed to be very busy in the removal of men on stretchers. \\ here every itv.n exhibited iho qualttles of tho soldier in such & splendid inatuior it in aimuuu tu , yet tbo names of Lieutenant Whittomore, who tod the two companies of the Third Vermont, and of Colonels Lord and Stoughton, of the Sixth and Fourth, are in all mouths an the especial heroes of the day. Thus it has b en found, rather expensively, that tbo enemy 's position is a very strong one, and that ho moans to defend it.
