death. The correspondent adds that the chain of evidence was mostly circumstantial, and that an officer who was on the court-martial afterwards said that the breaking of one link of that evidence would have freed the guilty wretches. This is one instance only in which the brutal Yankee soldiery have expiated their heinous offences with their lives. Affairs down the river. It was currently reported yesterday that on Monday night our forces captured the 6th New York regiment near Deep Bottom. The only foundation for this report was that a skirmish took place in that locality, in which forty-nine Yankees, who were on picket, were taken prisoners. Our informant states that not more than fourteen rounds were fired, and so slight was the engagement that companies stationed two miles off knew nothing of it until the prisoners were brought in. They represented that they were until recently serving under Banks, in Louisiana. On Saturday the enemy took possession of some pits
Captured Yankees. --Our forces at Deep Bottom captured on Monday night Capt. Wm. P. Huxford, of company G, 162d N. Y. infantry, and forty-eight privates, who had only the day before reached Grant's army from New Orleans. To show the character of these prisoners it is only necessary to mention that out of the number taken more than half are foreigners. If their own assertions are to be relied on, they have only been in the Yankee service a short while, and some of them have never fired a shot at our boys. They were committed to the Libby prison.
Suspicious character. --James B. Macauly, a citizen of Henrico county, was arrested by some of our cavalry yesterday in the neighborhood of Deep Bottom, on the charge of being a suspicious character. --Among the offences which it is alleged he has committed is that of pointing out the locality in which our troops have placed torpedoes. He was committed to Castle Thunder, there to await a Court Martial, which is to convene in his case.
