The attack on the Yankee. --The fact that one of Lincoln's roving pirates was fired on a few days ago, at Gloucester Point, by some Virginia artillerymen, has been mentioned.--The boat (the Yankee,) attempted to pass the fortifications at that place, when six rounds were fired at her, which drove her back. Captain J. Thompson Brown, who commands at Gloucester Point, is of opinion that he could have sunk her. His orders were only to prevent her passing, which he did. A liberal construction of his orders would have been justified under the circumstances of the case.
Howitzer Battalion. --This body of soldiery, formerly under the command of Capt. G. W. Randolph, has been formed into a Battalion, Captain Randolph ranking as Major, and Messrs. J. C. Shields, J. Thompson Brown and R. C. Stanard, been elected as first, second and third Captains.
