The capture of John B. Washington at Fairfax Court-House was a pleasant affair. As an infantry captain of the rebel force, he was prominent in the resistance to our cavalry, until a trooper rode up, caught him by the hair, lifted him bodily upon the pommel of his saddle, and, holding him in this position, charged twice through the town. Captain Washington complained bitterly, but, after having been lectured by Gen. Scott, he concluded to take the oath of allegiance, and was released. He is now with his family in this city. Capt. Washington is a son of the late Col. John A. Washington, who was lost overboard from the San Francisco.--The Independent, June 6.
