Hooker's brigade, on the Maryland shore of the Potomac, and who arrived in this city this evening, I have the following interesting particulars of a rebel attack upon the schooner Maryland.

Lieut. W. L. Chandler, of the Eleventh, in command, and accompanied by Lieut. Colburn and two or three others, immediately leaped into a small boat and put off

The following is an account of the capture, as given by the Missouri Republican: camp Herron, Mo., Ninth regiment Iowa Vols., Nov. 18, 1861. The commander of this post, having learned that a certain very fine secession flag that had waved defiantly from a flagstaff in the village of Manchester, twenty miles distant from this place, until the successes of the Union forces caused its supporters to conclude that, for the present, discretion would be the better part of valor, was still being very carefully preserved, its possessors boasting that they would soon be enabled to rehoist it, determined upon its capture. On the 15th inst., he directed First Lieutenant H. C. Bull, of Company C, of this regiment, to take charge of the expedition, and to detail fifteen good men for the purpose, which detail the lieutenant made from Company C. They left camp by the cars at half-past 5 P. M., landing at M
