ng Chase of a Federal Streamer --On Sunday evening, about seven o'clock, while the Confederate steamer Empire was engaged in reconnoitering the enemy's works at Newport News, Captain Parrish discovered the Federal steamer Cataline, some distance off and under head way for Old Point. Chase was immediately given, and when within a few miles of Hampton Creek, the Empire fired two shots, one of which is believed to have taken effect on the Cataline — and but for the proximity of the Cumberland frigate, which promptly opened her battery to stop the chase, the Cataline would in all probability have fallen into our hands. Capt. Parrish and his officers deserve much praise for their daring conduct in this little affair, as do also several of the Richmond Greys, who were on board the Empire as a marine guard. It is hoped that Capt. Parrish may soon be better prepared for offensive operations, by Laving a larger and more effecttive steamer placed under his control.-- Norfolk Herald.
