Promotions in the Petersburg City Guard.--The resignation of Lieutenant F. M. Wright, of the Petersburg City Guard, left a vacancy in this corps, which has been filled by the promotion of Charles Waddell to the office of First Lieutenant. Peter McEnery has been promoted to senior First Lieutenant, and Orderly sergeant Thomas Shanks to junior First Lieutenant. E. B. Bain is promoted to the office of Orderly Sergeant.

Severely Bitten by a Dog.--A young man from the country was attacked by a fierce bull dog while passing Mr. Spicer's factory in Blandford, on Saturday afternoon. The country man was actually borne down to the ground by the force of the dog's attack, and but for the timely aid of some persons at the factory, the dog would have very severely, if not fatally, injured him. As it was, however, he was much bitten, and his clothes and flesh considerably torn.

Promoted.--Robert Tannahill, of the Petersburg Cavalry, has been appointed Acting Quartermaster, with the rank of Captain, for the post at Suffolk, Va., in place of Capt. Samuel J. Hurt, resigned.
