Acquitted.

--Logan McCoull, one of Major Griswold's Detectives, who was indicted by the Grand Jury of Charles City county for reclaiming from the citizens of that county Yankee guns, blankets, and clothing, for the use of our army, was tried last Thursday and acquitted. Several other indictments against McCoull, for similar "offences," were then dismissed by nolle prosequi. It was shown that the officer in question acted under orders given him by the military authorities in Richmond, to seize all Yankee plunder that could be made useful to our men, and only did his duty under his instructions.
