An incident. --The parade of the Young Guard on Tuesday, on the occasion of their 11th anniversary, has already been noticed. The company repaired to the People's Garden beyond the Poor-House, where target practice was commenced. During the exercises a bullet whizzed past the head of a colored man named Thos. Lucas, who lives a half mile beyond the People's Garden, and struck his house, going through a window, striking a wall, rebounding and, striking an opposite wall, falling into a child's carriage in the room. A looking-glass and the plates in the room were shattered by the concussion.--Tom says if "dem Abolitionists comes within a mile, dese guns will do to bring'em to a halt." Nevertheless, he is thankful that none of his family were injured. He hopes the soldiers won't shoot at his house any more.
