Yankee Vandalism.

--Any person who desires a good idea of the Yankee notion of honorable warfare, and how they carry it on, has only to step down to the dock and look at a lighter full of valuable machinery lately brought from Curl's Neck and Claremont, on James river. When the owner of these farms, Maj. Wm. Allan, was compelled to fine to escape the vandals, they occupied his property, and after destroying all they could, broke up with heavy sledge hammers what they could not steal. Their malicious ingenuity was taxed to find new ways to "smash up" the machinery in question, which they pretty effectually did, rendering it worthless, save as old iron.
