Thirteen of our cavalry were taken on Thursday night last, in Gloucester county, at a frolic or party at the house of a Mr. Sinclair. A negro, as ought to have been expected, gave the Yankees information. Are these times for parties and frolics? How long will our Government permit our cavalry to leave their commands in squads of ten to thirty, to frolic, while the Yankees are coming out often, not numbering more than fifty or one hundred, to destroy our property and persecute our citizens? Gloucester county has chawed more tobacco since the war, than when all her soldiers and other citizens were at home. A regular trade is carried on with the Yankees across York river.
