Who is the Southern Major Captured by the Routed Lincolnites at Little Bethel? The "Old Lady" sends us the following, which conveys some important information not generally known: Many here believed that the unfortunate individual taken by the Federal troops at Little Bethel in their hasty flight before the pursuing Cavalry of Gen. Magruder, was none other than some plain farmer on the road, known by his neighbors as Major So-and-so, and whom the enemy seized upon as a trophy of their brilliant exploits at Great Bethel. But it has since leaked out that this prisoner of war, over whom so much parade is made, is the veritable Connecticut Yankee tin pedlar, formerly a resident of this city, Major Titus O.

Many rumors were floating through camp yesterday of an attack on Harper's Ferry, fighting at Strasburg, &c., but nothing definite has turned up. Missouri, it seems, at last is moving, and Maryland begins to give the windy chieftains who now occupy her soil considerable trouble. So mote it be. Harney, Butler, Cadwallader, et id omne genus, will soon have good cause to do more than fulminate their bayonet-supported edicts in those two struggling sister States. Several more prisoners have been brought in within a day or so past, and will soon be added to that interesting list of Paul Prys now in limbo in your city.
