A Yankee trick.

--Dr. Rawlings, the artist and correspondent of Frank Leslie's Magazine, accompanied by two brother New York correspondents, on Saturday paid a visit to this city. They were tolerably well mounted, and after ordering a champagne dinner, to which they invited several gentlemen, at Green's Hotel, they rode lively through town, and attracted considerable attention. Whether they became alarmed at our well-dressed and well-drilled soldiers or not we cannot say, but they never came to the champagne dinner.--Alexandria Gazette.
