Magruder's men. --It is said that Col. Magruder had with him at the Bethel Church his old force of regulars who were under him in the United States Army, they having deserted in order to join their old leader.

This may account, in part, for the terrible effect with which the guns managed in the late fight.--Savannah Republican. A slight mistake. The artillerists on that occasion were two companies of the Richmond Howitzer Battalion; as brave and determined young men as ever aimed a gun at an enemy.

Her statement about the number of the troops between Yorktown and Big Bethel is also corroborated by the flag of truce which was sent out by Col. Duryea yesterday to look after the dead and wounded which were left behind, if any, (and some there were,) at the time of the retreat. This flag of truce was passed through Big Bethel blindfolded, of course, and escorted to Yorktown, where Col. Magruder treated them very kindly, but said, "Gentlemen, you cannot be permitted to see either your wounded or prisoners" At this refusal, they returned last night and reported here this morning that the country from Big Bethel was bristling with bayonets. On the day of the retreat every effort was made to care for and bring off the wounded, but the rebels raised the black flag and fired a terrific volley upon the flag of truce.
