Yankee captured

--There was on yesterday a s ght spat between a portion of the Confederate troops and the Abolitionists, northeast of this city. Our men drove in the Abolition pickets, and found on going over the ground a Yankee soldier named Philip McLeary, of the 22d Pennsylvania regiment, who had been struck by a piece of shell, and left by his comrades. He was removed, brought to town in an ambulance, and will no doubt recover. He would have been instantly killed had not his head been of extra hardness.
