A Row at Brockville, Canada.

--A short time since the steamer Bay State, from Ogdensburg, N. Y., having on board some sixty or seventy drafted and enlisted men for the Yankee army, touched at Brockville, Canada. One of the intended soldiers jumped upon the wharf and exclaimed "Abe Lincoln may go to hell; I care nothing for him now." Some of the non-commissioned officers followed the "skedaddler," and one of them seized him, when several roughs around the wharf tell foul of the Yankees.--Several severe blows were dealt, and the Yankees were glad enough to take refuge in the propeller, minus three men.
