Capt. Ward, of the Freeborn.

--The Fredericksburg Herald says:

‘ "It is believed that Capt. Ward received his retribution at the hands of Mr. James Sthreshly, of Stafford, but a member of Capt. Gouldin's Caroline company, which is stationed at the Point. Young Sthreshly was armed with a Sharpe's rifle, and was a little nearer to the Freeborn than the main body of soldiers. He took deliberate aim, and though the distance is estimated at between 400 and 700 yards, the result shows that the aim was fatal.
