nt, was wounded. Lieut. Erkin, of the Texas troops was killed. From the Potomac — a midnight Foray. The Fredericksburg Recorder, of the 10th inst., says: On Tuesday night, or rather between midnight and Wednesday morning, the Federal war steamers on the Potomac, some three or four in number, ushered in the anniversary of the battle of New Orleans, by running up the stream, and firing into shore as they passed. Some 30 shot and shell were thrown upon the premises of Col. John Taylor, at Chatterton, but strange to say, did no harm whatever. Still later in the night they reached Creek and fired a large number of balls, variously estimated, between 75 and 180.

On Wednesday morning the steamers, four in number, were discerned of

he shells which the Virginia threw among them. On our side the loss was indeed small, and when we consider the storm of shell to which at times they were subjected, we can but wonder while we rejoice that so few of them suffered injury. On the Virginia there were two killed and eight wounded. Among the wounded, we regret to mention, Capt Buchanan and Lt. Minor. These wounds, however, we are happy to state, are but slight. On the Raleigh, Midshipman Mutter was killed, and Captains Taylor and Alexander wounded, the first-mentioned quite severely. On the Seaport Gunner W Robinson and two seamen were wounded. This was all the damage sustained by this vessel among her men. Two Yankee prisoners aboard of her were struck by the balls of their friends, one of them killed and the other severely wounded.
