By default, FromDigits assumes base 10 and computes 10*135+21 = 1371

>And how to get integer 1323 from  list {13,23}?

There are several ways. First convert each element of the list to individual digits, combine the lists and send to FromDigits, i.e.,

FromDigits[Flatten[IntegerDigits /@ {13, 23}]]
1323

But the more elegant approach is to take advantage of the fact FromDigits can be made to work with any base. In particular,

FromDigits[{13, 23}, 100]
1323
