THE BATTLE OF SANTA ROSA, OCTOBER 9, 1861.-THE ATTACK UPON WILSON'S CAMP.-[SKETCHED BY MR. CHARLES F. ALLGOUER.]

THE BATTLE AT SANTA ROSA.

WE herewith publish, from sketches by Mr. Charles F. Allgouer, Sixth New York Volunteers, two illustrations of the battle of 9th October on

Santa Rosa Island. We have heretofore described the affair very fully, and will only now add that the rebels, under General Anderson, crossed over by night and surprised Colonel Wilson's camp; that Wilson's men, after a short retreat, rallied,

and drove back the enemy ; and that the rout of the assailants was completed by the appearance on the scene of some companies of regulars, who chased them to their boats, and peppered them well as they were embarking. Since then the rebels

have made another attempt to disturb our forces on Santa Rosa Island. They landed about a mile and a half from Wilson's camp, but were discovered by one of the men-of-war, and shelled off with considerable loss and in great confusion.
