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.
