Contraband in a coffin.

--On Monday afternoon, 9th inst., says the Baltimore Sun, the sentinels of the Second Maryland Regiment, on guard at the Long Bridge, on the Anne Arundel shore of the Patapsco, had their attention attracted to the approach of a funeral procession, consisting of a sombre hearse and attendants. The first sentinel allowed the hearse to pass, but the second stopped it, and an examination revealed a lot of muskets and ammunition concealed in the coffin. The attendants escaped, but the hearse and horse were captured.
