We have been shown a cartridge, one of those used in loading Burnside's breech-loading rifle, captured at the battle of Manassas plains on the 21st of July, which shows plainly, from the pains taken in making it, that if the Yankees were half as expert in using destructive implements as they are in making them, they would be a hard people to beat. The funnel containing the powder, is of brass, well made, one end containing a Minnie ball and gradually sloping, the smaller end being perforated for the speedy ignition of the powder. The cartridge is water-proof. It was sent to C. A. McEvoy, of this place, by little Joe Hirshberg, who beats the big drum in Smith's First Regiment band.
M. C. Thorn, T. S. Thorn, G. W. Smith, A. Kirby, J. A. Kirby, G. W. Kirby, and R. Kirby have been arrested in Maryland on the charge of being Secessionists.
