A Diary of American Events.

January 5.—A party of National troops engaged the rebels in a slight skirmish on the mainland, near Port Royal, S. C, during which seven of the latter were captured, and marched to Beaufort. While under guard they were extremely unruly, and at one time attempted to effect their escape by beating down the guard and seizing their weapons.—N. Y. Times, January 11.
