A Damnable deed. --A Virginia correspondent of the Charleston Mercury writes: A letter has been received from a gentleman in Fairfax, stating that a few days since, while Mrs. Fitzhugh an old lady of 72 years, and totally blind, was engaged with her relatives and friends in performing the funeral rites of one of her daughters, a party of Yankee ruffians entered the house, caught her by the throat, and in the presence of the grief-stricken family, strangled her to death. After this fiendish deed, they seized all the whites then present, and carried them off to Washington, where they are now imprisoned. At the same time, all the slaves, numbering probably a hundred, were stolen, and the house and its furniture destroyed. I am told by relatives of the afflicted family that the story comes from a source so authentic that they cannot doubt it.
