P1TMOD1B BORRINOKRID ts tbe startling atd painful announcement J *m com pelted to make to you In my despatch today, wbicb event look everybody by surprise, as it wan thought ibat General Wessells could bold out for ? few days at least, until reinforcements, which were al ready on the way, coulcfteaob him. But tho rebel ram which had destroyed the Southfleld kept our transports from asceodlng the Roanoke river, and consequently tbe beleaguered garrison at Plymouth was compelled to fight as long as human enduranoe cound etand It, and aitber be annihilated or surrender at discretion. This tews reached me this morning by tbe arrival of tho steamer Currituck from Roanoke Island, and through a meet reliable source. TBB MISt ATTACH was made?n the fortifications of Plymouth on tbe 17tb test, bat repulsed, as also another made on Fort Gray. Tha momentary repulse lcept tho enemy at bay, and laatad for Bearly tweatyXour hours. On Tuesday morn* teg the rabel ram made her appearanoe, to co-operats with tbe iaad frrcee. and succeeded not only in sinking tbe Boutbfleld, but In killing Captain Flntier. They drove oar naval vessels from the river, and consequently this support failed General Wessells In tbe most trying hear of bis campaign. TBB SBCOKD 4TTJCV whs made by tbe enemy oo all of our forts surrounding the town almost simultaneously, and in every assault be waa driven baek with terrific slaughter. Bat the rebels i determined, and renewed attaeks were made aod I, each one still attended with Ibe most dreadful carnage. From this time until half past ten o'clock on Wednesday morning tbe flghtlog was almost uninter rupted. Ob Tuesday orders were Issued for TBS BVAQC4TION OS tOBT WBBSBLIS, better known ae tbe Eighty fifth regiment redoubt, Situated a Btaort distance from Mill creek. Captain Cfcaptn, the commandant of tbe fort, had been filled, and. although tbe stock of ammunition aa band was growing "small by degrees and beautifully lass," stui tbe bsrolc little band kept np aa Incessant firing oo tha enemy, every shot tell ing wHb fearful effect. Upon tha reception of Tb. order tha survivors of tba^lrrlson awaited tbe coming of Bight, and under Its protect; og shade silently withdrew to tbe town, having first, however 4 disabled tha guns of tbe tort. tbb tiro* roBcts eowcssnuTtD, ah tbe evacuation of Fort Weenelle, in Forts Williams, Comfort and-a redoubt facing tbe Roanoke river, below Mill creek, and kept up the fight tnceasantly. Tbe forces ef General Weestlls, thus being massed and able to handle their artillery more effectively, kept up a regular steady and tailing fire on ibe rebels. Tbe enemy used thirty pocudcr Parrott guns and otber artillery of about similar eallbre. tCOT WTl L1AVS WORMED. , Al bine o'clock on tbe 20th toil, a moat lmpetuoua aaeault nu made by tbe rebel* on Fort Williams. Our brers boy* nobly stood by their fun* and repulsed every attempt of the enemy to enter tbe fortification. In splsn dld order did tbe rebel column advanoe to tbe assault. General Wssaells allowed btm time to come witbln easy range of bia cum, and tben gave tbe order to fire. Every discharge mowed down tbe rebel troope by platoons. Still tbe gape were laatantly filled up and tbe attack reaewsd la t bis manner tbe enemy repel red several severe shocks,^ aad, after a laat aad still more impetuous charge, which* likewise resulted disastrously to bim, be withdrew, evi dently to jpepeir damsgs aad make ready for another attack.

Tbe motive of the rebels, as stated by some of tbeir officers, for making tbe onslaught on Plymouth and other posts in Nortb Carolina Is to drive tbe Union forces out of tbe Ftate, and transfer tbe theatre of war fiom Virginia to North Carolina; also to check tbe movement umotj^tbe dis affected towards resisting tbe Jeff.

In anticipation of a visit from this ram, obstructions bad been placed in tbe rivor, opposite Hyner's Ferry. ihoioikkkt witb rut mi*. As tbe Ceres passed Fort Gray, a strong fortification two and a half miles above Plymouth, tbe enemy opened on ber from a battery of six gune, tbe Ceres at once re sponding witb ber tmill Parrott riflee The casualtiis on baard tbe Ceres In this affair were two men ki.lcd and ail or seven wounded, Including offi cers, none of whom were serio.sly hurt. By tbia affair tbe position of tbe enemy was disclosed to Captain Frown, the commandant of Fort Gray, who thereupon open^ Ore from a hundred-pounder Parrott and two smooth t> rs of less calibre. Tbe firing ef both per* tiee becar&e brisk, tbe rebel practice being excellent, and one of their shots carried away tbs flagstaff of lbs fori, but which was almost instantly re eleraied to tbe top of a tree.

Purtog ibis engagement tbo gunboats did excel lent execution and rapid firing 'I he Soutbfleld tbrew upwards of two nundrod shell, and tbe Miami above thirty, and, alibougb tbe enemy's range wi.s generally good, received no damage. TDK RAM r*88ts TBI OBSTROCTIOSS. During tbe nigbt tbe gunboat Whitehead came down and repotted that tbe robe! ram had suc ceeded lo passing tbe obstructions placed across tne river to prevent Its progress, and was lying close to tbe rebel battery above Fort Gray. Lieutenant Com mander Flusrer, or the Miami, tad In charge of the squadron, immediately ordered tbe SoutbQeid to be se cured to bis boat as before. But bis orders bad only been partially executed before it was announced that tbe ram was coming down tbe r.lver, firing, but not relumed by our butteries at Grey and Worth, Captain Flusser then ordered tbe two boats, partially united, to bo ad vanced at full speed against tbe rebel ram, now but ? few yards distant. But owing to time not being afforded to Captain Fl'isser for tbe execution of his plane, the boats were not in a condition to cope with tbe ram end its vast ly superior advantages. Hence the conflict was but brief, and after the concussion tbe Soutbfleld was so much dis abled as to slnu almost Immediately. The Miami sub secjuently fired some seven or eight solid shot, which tad not the slightest cflect, but glanced oil tbe impenetrable sides ofthe ram. MmiD FirssBk's dbatd. )t is cow my painful task to be compelled to record the death of tbe gallant and able Csptain Flusser. His loss Is universally deplored, and it will be diir.cult to replace him. Captain French, of the Soutblleld, then assumed command, and tbe Miami alone, unable to offer resistance, steamed down tbe river. A list of casualties, comprising all that aro at present known, I append but it is feared, in addition, that seve ral of tbe Soutbfleld?names unknown?are drowned. Had tbe plan or Captain Flusser been consummated, It is believed that the rem would bsve b cb destroyed or captured. It was bis intention to connect two boats firmly to gether, by means or chains and spars, and seek tbe en counter by advancing apair.it tte rem, aiming to strike ber between both vessels and rorce her against the shore. At tbe same time a torpedo was to De so arranged as to catt it Into ber smoke stack but, owing to ciroumstauccs beyond hrs eentrol, the arrangements were not esecutcd. *b* tAsriims. l ieutenant Commander Cbar'es W.

Tbe terrible ram which has been, and is expected to be further, the cause of so much distraction in tbis district is described as follows-.? , In shape she resembles tbe destroyed ram Merrimac, end, like ber, carries an mstmment or destruction at ber prow, which renders ber so pecMlisrly dangerous in con flicts with wooden vessels. She Is built of hesvy iron plate, brought partly from Wilmington and partly from Atlanta^ Georgia, and is of rather clumsy movement. She possesses one aperture at ber fore part for tbe use of a heavy gun; but her main purpose is to desiroy by concussion. She is accompanied by a form id i ble water battery, securely protected by cotton balee, behind which artillery and small arms can be securely used.
