Unpleasant Occurrence. --A difficulty occurred at the store of Spence & Garey, yesterday morning, growing out of a misunderstanding in regard to some uniforms manufactured by that firm for Capt. Hobson's company, of the 5th Alabama Regiment. The uniforms had not been received by the company, and Lieut. S. Cowan went to see about them. The interview was exciting, and Mr. Spence got out a warrant against Mr. Cowan for assault. Col. Henry Garnett readily came forward and entered into recognizance for his future good behavior, and thus the matter ended. No one regrets it more than Lieut. Cowan, who, at an advanced age, has left his home, and, with his sons, enlisted in defence of his country. We are gratified to learn that the uniforms, which were delivered to the Quartermaster's Department, and mis-sent, have been discovered, and will be forwarded to Manassas.
