Accidental Sheeting. --An accident occurred yesterday about 4 o'clock at the pistol gallery, corner of 14th and Main streets, by which Mr. James L. Smither, dry goods merchant of this city, was dangerously wounded by a ball discharged from a Colt's pistol in the bands of Mr. Jos. Brummel. Messrs. B. and S. were at the gallery trying their own pistols; S. was standing on one side, and B. having just discharged one barrel of his pistol, was in the act of replacing it in his pocket, when one of the barrels was by some means discharged, the ball striking S. in the abdomen, passing across and lodging in the muscular part. Dr. Burton, who was in attendance, probed the wound and gives the opinion that the ball did not enter the cavity of the stomach, which leaves considerable room to hope that S. will get over the wound. Sundry gentlemen were standing in a group with Mr. S. when the ball struck him.
h back-bone in Lincom's men to take the heights away from them. The Dispatch, I am sorry to say, does not reach me regularly. I received May 30, and the next was June 3. Something wrong somewhere; yet, the Post-Office Department in our Government has not had the time to get all right. Things will work right, I suppose, by-and-by. There is much inconvenience on account of Confederate Post- Office stamps. Five cents in silver is not always commutable, and we have some bother. We have plenty of provisions, comfortable quarters, and general health very good. No small-pox nor epidemic disease to contend with. A. U. S. soldier was brought in yesterday by a member of Capt. T. L. Yancey's Cavalry, as a prisoner of war. There was a small skirmish, in which two or three U. S. soldiers were killed and one prisoner taken. Three or four Colt revolvers were taken at the same time. I hope to soon have the pleasure of reporting our victory, in a battle at Harper's Ferry. Pen.
