Violent assault.

--On Sunday morning, about daylight, James Agen, a private in Captain Love's company, (the Rocky Point Rifles, of Mississippi,) accosted, near Marion hill, a negro having a bag of corn. Believing it to be stolen he attempted to arrest the negro, when he was violently assaulted with a stick, and so severely beaten that he was rendered insensible, in which condition he was found upon the road and taken to camp at Marion hill. Dr. Tren was sent for and dressed the wounds, which though numerous, it is hoped are not of a dangerous character.
