a few steps further, she missed it, and turning round, saw a man apparently examining a note near the spot where she thought she had dropped it. She approached him, and said in a polite manner "Excuse me, sir, but I dropped a note just here. Did you find the one you have in your hand?" To the lady's astonishment. The coarsely applied--"You must be a fool." and very coolly proceeded to fold it up and place it in his pocket. The lady appealed to a gentleman standing near, related the circumstances but he, from some cause, proffered no assistance. She then went on, and fortunately on reaching the next square, met one of the provost guard, who kindly offered to attend to it. We deduce from this circumstance two reflections--First that a man who would thus treat a lady should at once be placed in the army, and made to expiate his offence at the cannon a mouth, and second, that Gen Winder ought to increase the number of the guard, to protect ladies from insult, if for no other reason.
A Muss between two men of War. --In going their usual rounds on Thursday night, the vigilant guardians of the city's peace picked up two men named Logan and Lane, who, at the moment of being approached by the conservator of the peace; were in the act of engaging in a mutual game of fisticuffs. They were evidently suffering from the effects of numerous applications of contraband in the gastric region.--The fight was to have been in reference to a that Lans accused his comrade of taking from him in an unauthorized manner. Both parties were conveyed to the cage, where, having spent the night, they were conveyed before the Mayor yesterday. His Honor sent them to General Winder, they being soldiers.
A subject of complaint. --We understand that all of the Yankee negroes are included in the number of abolition soldiers and non-commissioned officers to be sent home by General Winder to-day by flag of truce. The fact that these representatives of the "irrepressible conflict" are thus to be removed beyond our bailiwick, by the flat of a military chieftain, provokes much comment from Virginians and others who have been robbed of their negroes and other property by Lincoln's minions. They think these black scoundrels should be sold, and the proceeds applied to the paying of losses sustained by patriotic citizens in this contest with the invading vandals. Some of the negro captives would make excellent servants, and command, perhaps, $1,000 per head. The confiscation of such contraband deserves, at least, a passing consideration from the authorities.
Gaelan act. --Philip Cashmeyer, one of Gen Winder's detectives, went to the battlefield on Saturday morning to carry an order, and while there saw an opportunity of bringing down a Yankee Colonel with his revolver. While near the dying vandal who was strapped to his horse, and could not fall off, though mortally wounded, a private soldier charged on him with great impetuosity. By a dexterous use of his hands Cashmeyer seized the bayonet, and turning it aside, gave him his querulous. The nett results of the affair was a fine horse, sword, pistol, gun, and field glass, all of which the heroin detective secured.

Referred to Committee on Claims. Mr. Perkins, of La, offered the following preamble and resolution, which was referred to the Committee on Naval Affairs: Whereas, the recent action under the late law of Congress, of promoting officers "out of sum," has resulted in creating great discontent among many gallant and meritorious officers in the navy, and is considered injurious to the best interests of the service: Be it therefore. Res

Arrival of Yankees. --About thirty Yankee prisoners arrived in the city yesterday, via Petersburg cars. They were captured in squads at various places — some on the Blackwater river, in Southampton county, some at Zuni Station, and a few in North Carolina. They were carried to General Winder's office and thence to the Libby prison.--The prisoners here are very anxious to be off, and our Government is equally solicitous to get rid of them; but going is out of the question until they are sent for. Last night Lieut. Pearson, of the 1st N C cavalry, brought down on the Central railroad eighteen Yankee cavalrymen, captured at various times in Fauquier; also, two citizens (not natives) of that county, who sought employment of the Yankees, and were found working on their breastworks.
