For the Peninsula. --Persons wishing to visit their friends serving in the Young Guard, the Virginia Life Guard, the Patrick Henry Rifles, Company A, (Henrico,) or the Henrico Southern Guard, can take the steamer Curus Peck, which leaves her wharf at Rocketts on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and reach there in an astonishing short space of time. After this week the Peck will make daily trips to points on the river, and those who know Capt. Freeman as well as we do, need no further assurance that a journey with him will be productive of pleasure. See advertisement.
Affair at Newport News. On Sunday morning last, Mr. Samuel Pryor, of the Charles City Troop, in company with Mr. Hill Carter, Jr., and Mr. Lee, a citizen of Warwick county, was out on a reconnoisance at New port News, and were proceeding quietly along on horseback, when they were surprised by a party of about 20 Hessians, who were hid in the bushes. The three gentlement at once fired upon the enemy, and it is believed each killed a man. The fire was returned, and Mr. Pryor received a shot in the groin. They then retired and had proceeded some distance from the scene of action before his companions were a ware of the disaster that had befallen Mr. Pryor. He was taken to a private house, where he died about six hours after being shot. The body was brought up to Wilcox's wharf yesterday, by the steamer Curtls Peck, Capt. J. H. Freeman, from whom we learned these particulars.
