Fight at Aquia Creek.[special Correspondence of the Dispatch] Fredericksburg, June 1st, 1861. Dear Dispatch: I have just returned from our batteries at Aquia Creek, where I witnessed the fights of yesterday and to-day, between four or five U. S. steamers and our battery at the Creek. On Thursday evening last four U. S. steamers, one of them the "Anacosta," were seen lying off "Maryland Point," and our brave boys anticipating a brush, prepared at once to give them a warm reception. On Friday morning, about 10 o'clock, the "Anacosta" and three other steamers were seen to get under way, and approaching within two and a half miles of the battery, opened fire on it. Our boys promptly responded, and the fire was continued for an hour and a half between the steamers and battery, when Walker's Flying Artillery, supported by the R. L. I. Blues, Capt. Wise, of your city, came up with a run from Marlboro' Point, and opened on the steamers, the fire continuing for an hour
From Portsmouth.[special Correspondence of the Dispatch.] Portsmouth, June 1, 1861. There is a report here that Paschal Latinier, of Hampton, has been hanged in that village. It is said that he shot one of the ruffians of the Washington despot. I give you the rumor as I received it. It came from two independent sources — Williamsburg and another point. A subscription list has been started at the Navy-Yard towards a monument to the hero Jackson, the Virginia Protomartyr in the war of independence of 1861. The amount of each subscription has been limited to one dollar. I visited Camp Grice, at Pinner's Point, yesterday. The walk by a near cut is about two miles. It is delightful locality, and the force there is comparatively in clover. All was quiet. Nothing of interest transpiring here. Old Dominion.
From Norfolk.[special Correspondence of the Dispatch.] Norfolk, Va., June 1st, 1861. Depredations upon our coast by the Federal troops are becoming constant. An idea of the character of their offences may be found in the following, which is reliable: Shortly after their arrival at Newports News, a number of the soldiery — some in a beastly state of intoxication — went to the residence of a highly respectable farmer in the neighborhood, and drove the whole family from the house with out a moment's notice, who were compelled to seek the woods for safety. The negroes on the place ran from the house in all directions, and it is thought the farmer will lose these, together with all the articles he left behind, but is grateful that he escaped with his life. The troops were exceedingly insolent, and stated that they were free that day; that no officers were with them, and that they intended to do as they pleased. The family, in which were two young children and an old l
From Petersburg.[special Correspondence of the Dispatch.] Petersburg, Saturday, June 1, 1861. A splendid rawhide saddle, intended as a present for President Davis, passed through here to- day, from Kingsville, S. C. It look very much like a Mexican saddle. On the pommel is placed a beautiful compass, about four inches in diameter, and handsomely mounted with silver. The Baptist Association adjourned sine die to-day. It is understood that nearly all the churches will be occupied to-morrow by some of the distinguished ministers who have been in attendance on the Association. A free negro, named Anthony Prichard, was arrested and brought before Mayor Townes this morning, by Mr. George Sturdivant, for selling him a horse which was not the negro's property. The horse was stolen by the fellow from Mr. Beasley, some 25 or 30 miles up in Dinwiddie, and brought down and sold to Mr. S. for $50. Only half the money was recovered — the balance will be lost. The case wa
